As if the recent Dark Souls news wasn’t enough, we’ve now got another sobering report putting a nail in the coffin of GFWL’s coffin. See, there was – if only briefly – a thin ray of hope. Well, sort of. Windows 8 is bringing full Xbox Live functionality along for the ride, so you’d think Microsoft might at least retire its creaky PC gaming backend and put its full efforts behind a hopefully (and that’s a long shot) less tiresome interface. No such luck, however. GFWL, says Microsoft, will live on until long after our pitiful species is dethroned by apes, aliens, zombies, and Mayan ghosts – all at once.
