Hello people, J here with a question!
I'm looking into buying Dark Souls, but seeing as I don't live in Europe or the US (Middle Easterner here), the game is region-locked on Steam. Now, there's a method of activating a region-locked game on Steam, but this is a cumbersome procedure that I need to repeat whenever I want to play my game.
Looking at the official Dark Souls site, I see that the game requires a Steam account, and I can't buy it from Amazon or GameStop because the game is region-locked there as well.
Thing is - the game uses GFWL and is available on the Marketplace. I normally wouldn't want to buy there but, if it bypasses the Steam requirement, it seems like it's my only option. I haven't seen anything about a Steam requirement on the Marketplace page.
Can anyone confirm that buying the game from the GFWL Marketplace will grant me regular access to the game? I'm in a bit of a pickle here and really want to play this game!
Thanks in advance
