GFWL List

Postby viper1829 » Tue Jul 31, 2012 11:56 am

I'll break this Forum page in...
I just bought a wired Xbox controller, so I can start playing steam games. Those deals are too good to pass up. But, I'd like to earn Xbox Achievements while on my PC. I know we could start listing stuff here, but the Wiki page has it broke down REALLY well (price, # of achievements, gamer score, etc.).


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Games_for_Windows_%E2%80%93_LIVE_titles


If you know of some that's NOT on their list, feel free to add them below.

Can you plug any wired Xbox controller into your PC and play gfwl? Does it work with a play and charge kit on a wireless? I have yet to look into getting a controller for my PC gaming.

I don't know if you can use any wired Xbox controller but it works with the official one, the Razer Onza and the Mad Catz FPS Pro for me. I just test the last two ones and everything works fine :)

I don't know about play and charge, but I've used several different wired controllers with no problem. Just be aware that Bioshock 2 doesn't support controller use.

yeah, I only have the Official Xbox, Black wired controllers. Read too many reviews saying that other's wouldn't work, so I just spent the extra 410 and got the Official one from Amazon.

You can use a wireless controller. you would just need to download a program to be able to use it. Here is the link if you would need it.

I'm not 100% sure about this so if anyone knows it better please correct me. But I think you have to look for a "Games for Windows LIVE" tag on the game box. But pay attention because on games with "Games for Windows" you can't get achievements. It has to be the games for windows LIVE tag on there like on this one right here

Just be careful with some games and buying through other digital providers as some games don't work with both services.

I know World of Goo is one of those, if you get that on Steam, you won't be able to connect to LIVE.

So far I've only gotten Fallout 3, Viva Pinata, and that Tinker Game on GFWL. Haven't really looked into which games on Windows have easy achievements.
