Jeeez what a rigamoroll of burning hoops you have to jump through to get it to go

once it finished downloading and said it was installed I clicked play (as you do) well that didn't work

turns out that when it said it had installed it failed to tell me that not only do I need steam but I also need to install Games for Windows Live ( which was supposed to be installed along with the game but wasn't ),.... so I install GFWL from the games folder pretty basic I thought but no I still couldn't play the game (grrrrr) until I sign in or up to GFWL (F@%K what) another 30 mins of buggering around on the GFWL site

ok so long frustrating story short I now have an GFWL and Steam account and I can now play the game (yaaaaaaaay) (/S)

is it just me or does everyone feel the need to commit murder every now and then

Yeah the amount you have to do now to actually play the game these days drives me nuts. 

Miss the simple days of putting a disk in, enter the key, install, play. Was so much easier.

yes I'd have to agree and the fact that having steam should make the need for GFWL unnecessary or vice versa depending on how you get the game seeing as they pretty much both do the same thing

hmmmm ohwell it's all done now and I'm happily playing it
