Hi! Im new to this game and was looking forward to play it. I have tried Fable II and I enjoyed it greatly. I have bought the DVD in a local store. The installation seemed to work fine. When I hit the play game button I was informed I had to get a verification of the release date. Easy peacy I thought, but when I hit the button it loaded for a few seconds and I got the message that Games for Windows Live couldnt connect to the Live-service. I then rounded up the usual suspects. First thing I did was to turn off the fire wall with no effect. Then I checked if the game servers were down. They werent. Then I tried the Securom page with no effect. (Securom didnt identify fable III.) I am a bit frustrated because of this. The frustration is not getting less from the fact that Dragon Age 2 has a similar problem... (Or my comp does.) Im annoyed that one-player games should need all this hustle with internet connection... Any tips on this? Please dont flame me. I have serched the forum a bit before asking..
