So apparently the game I bought has to connect to a social club or I can not play....well it is down so now what?
Game says it cannot connect to steam via social club leaving my game usless. Is there any workaround or is this the new future of gaming? /sigh

This is happening to me to, restarting PC didn't fix it QQ.

Same, I even rebooted the computer to no avail. I see a LONG history of this type of problem. I can log onto steam and social club online, but not through the game. I tweeted both a while ago with no response. Too bad I had free time tonight to play. thx

Likely its an issue on Rockstars end, As yesterday for me it worked and now it dousn't with no changes anywhere. Seems others are having same problem aswell. Give it some time and the problem should be fixed.

If not, well the irony is that those who cracked/pirated the games are still able to play.

Theres really nothing the end user can do in scenarios like these other than contact support.

I submitted it as a support ticket too before I posted thread here. Hopefully it'll get attention :'(
I had the same issues yesterday

Thanks for all the replies, hopefully they will fix it, I had been looking through lots of old posts about it and no luck for a fix so far. Good luck all! :)

Simply unreal, rockstar games and steam are just not answering or helping with this. All they do is close out my help tickets. I still have the problem.

This. Is. Very. Stupid. I can't play the game i bouhgt just because i can't log inro my account? Really?

I can play now, it still will not log into social club, but it will let you bypass it and play.....

Perhaps it's a firewall issue that shows up when you're in-game, since Steam & Social club don't share the same actual "application" to get connected as far as I know.

Unlikely as everyone is suffering the same scenario and on top of the DRM doing the actual blocking us from playing. That said I beat MP3 after it started working again and it still decided to do this now and then. Luckily relaunching solved it. Sad to see a good game marred by DRM.

Same here.
Also for L.A. Noire.
Exactly the same error.
Rockstar Socialclub doesn't even react to my password it just has this loading circle and even that might not show up.
The Socialclub freezes up after that.
