Anyone got any ideas what's going on? I'm trying to play Batman AC, through steam, but it won't let me sign into my GFWL account. It doesn't give me any error message. It doesn't try to claim i've got the wrong password. It just won't sign in. I get to the sign in screen, I enter my info, and it says "signing into GFWL...", then it just goes back to the game menu and says I'm not logged in, therefore can't save, or access my saves. It was working perfectly fine yesterday, and absolutely nothing has changed since then.

Can't explain what would've changed, but I've had issues logging in before as well. Removed all Games for Windows/Games for Windows Live stuff and just grabbed the installer from Microsoft's site and reinstalled everything.

Well it looks like it decided to work now. Maybe GFWL's servers were screwing up for a few minutes. I didn't do anything different, just tried again after trying 3 or 4 times and then stopping, and now it seems to work.

GFWL has never been my favorite. It's definitely one of the more unintuitive PC gaming clients.

It has done this to me on my initial setup. Made me rage lol. Bioshock 2 was the worse when it came to GFWL setup. :P

Ugh, I hate GFWL. It nearly gave me a heartattack with Bulletstorm. :/

Oh god, Bioshock 2 took me hours just to start playing, what a nightmare.
