I think they gave everyone who hadn't purchased the AC GOTY edition who had the vanilla edition it for free. I bought AC like two years ago but never bought the GOTY edition. Restarted steam and now AC GOTY is in my library. Maybe thats why the update hasn't been pushed to those who have the non GOTY edition?

edit: lol, beaten by miliseconds.
Hm, I have both AA&AC regular and GOTY versions. I guess my vanilla ones just disappear?

After watching that Nvidia stream with Batman Origins I got hyped up again to play Batman AC.

And now this happens.

It's a sign!

Btw, Batman AA GOTY and Batman AC GOTY are 75% off right now, so the 2 people that still didn't buy and play this game should jump on this deal right now!

Set my AC non-GOTY to not update for now in case I want to finish it, I doubt it'll help but worth a try.

Is there a way to find out what key I used for GFWL? I bought AA years ago from Direct2Drive but they don't exist anymore, D2D is now owned by gamefly and I don't remember my log in info because I never used gamefly .

SteamDB still says that they don't support family sharing. I hope they change it soon.

Still I'm glad they gave both GOTYs for free to vanilla's owners.

I am trying to activate retail AA on steam using the GFWL key on the back of the user manual and it isn't working.

If your game is installed (or maybe if it was installed at one point on your windows installation), it should be in the windows registry.

If not, I dunno.

Neat, I have the GOTY version of Arkham City. I guess because I have the Harley Quinn dlc.

Just checked my library and I do have the AC GOTY edition along with the standard edition. Nice. I was hoping that would be the outcome.

Yeah AC GOTY was just added on my Steam, only had vanilla AC before with no DLC. Pretty cool, wasn't expecting this.

However, I'm guessing my savefiles will no longer work?

if i got hired by valve, on my first day of work i would remove all the fucking punctuation errors, trademarks, mis-alphabetized sequels and other bullshit from the steam library and then i would quit, knowing that i contributed more to steam than anyone else who ever worked there did.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to continue playing from your current save. You will need to start a new game.
My Arkham City 100% save game is now meaningless? ;_;

The reason why owners of BioShock 2 and Batman get the DLC for free, is probably because Valve/Warner can't determine who actually owns any DLC on GFWL.

If there's a Mac version of Arkham Asylum, why isn't that up on Steam too? Very odd they would put just AC up there, considering Feral ported both of them. Weird!

I was hoping for the same outcome. It is really the only way that makes sense and doesn't leave people out in the cold.
The registry updates from yesterday cast some doubt on that situation, but they were updated this morning.

Nope, check OP.

What steam skin is that?
Looks like PixelVision

So, the GOTY editions of the game got GFWL patched out and given away to owners of the regular versions?

I wonder if the regular version will be patched as well. It's listed on the page for today's Batman sale.

Both my saves are in the regular versions. If they're not patched, I wouldn't lose them.
