Just fired up Max Payne 3 for the first time after purchasing it a while ago, and I get this exact message. Still no fix? It finds my social club stuff ok but I look at my profile in the top right of Scial Club whilst the game is running it says "SC OFFLINE".

I really hate this type of DRM it really is killing games and needs to be stopped as I can't even play this game now.

It's like you buy a game but the fat cats are in control of whether you can play it or not.

Wow.. Astral .. I checked out that link.. I feel bad for all the people that are getting this issue. The steps that you have to follow to troubleshoot it. OMG.

DRM Fail.

Just loaded it up for the first time and same thing. So sick of this stuff in games today - I just want to play the freaking game, NOT sign up to a load more useless crap that I'll never use and doesn't work half the time anyway!

Edit: Finally worked after many tries. Frustrating for a while there.

As an aside. Sometimes after registering the game won't let you sign in to play.

As a work-around - I found that if you start steam in offline mode, then play the game - you can sign right in and not have to bother with much of the social club stuff. The game also plays significantly better in offline mode. While online, i couldn't keep a steady framerate for the life of me. It would drop out constantly. 70fps, down to 20, back up to 60fps. it was close to unplayable - at any graphics setting. playing in offline mode, steady framerate, max graphics.

you might have luck playing the game in steam's offline mode like i did. cheers.
