Batman: Arkham City is Using Games For Windows Live (Boo!)S

Modern Warfare 3 is using Steamworks. That's good news, because Steam is reliable, and Steam is popular. Batman: Arkham City is instead using Microsoft's Games For Windows Live platform. Which is neither of those things. Making this bad (if not unexpected) news.

You'll of course be able to buy the game anywhere you like. Even Steam! So it's not a Battlefield-3-only-on-Origin kind of mess. But good lord that GFWL shell is terrible.
