Is the Social Club just broken?
I can't login through the game. I can login on the web site but I can't view my "Profile" page at all. It just errors out.

The "Games" page has "We're sorry. Some data is temporarily unavailable at the moment, please check back later!"

Am I right in assuming that any games on it listed as "Temporarily Unavailable" mean you can't login to them, let alone play them?

Well, I sure as hell cannot run my game (all of a sudden!) owing to this stupid, unneeded, totally uncalled for piece of ill-conceived bloatware.

Obviously I was forced to make this social club account when I bought the game a couple of months ago - the account was linked to Steam and the game worked as it was supposed to.

Now all I get is 'Error linking your Social Club account to Steam'. The game does not even launch. I logged on to this wretched misbegotten Social Club and they don't even have an option to link Steam anymore, all they offer is blinking Facebook, bloody Twitter and more crap equaly unrelated to their Steam customers.

So yes, in a nutshell, you assume right - you buy the game, you are forced to register for something you don't need and then this unsolicited pile of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ would not allow you to peruse your legitimately purchased product.

Having the same problem. Could play last night, not working now.

Same problem here. I bet it has something to do with the GTA V leak they are trying to contain.

I'm sure its GTA:V Stuff going on FUU right on my free day.

Yeah, it's sure to be the gta stuff since it comes out tuesday, and it looks like you'll have to be part of this social group to play the on-line content of that game

Most probably, but whatever is going on they must either hold their end of the bargain or issue a ♥♥♥♥ing statement. As much as I love Rockstar this is horrible performance and unexcusable lack of communication.

But then, the very moment I found out that I was expected to register for a service I do not need and do not want when I buy a game on Steam - I knew it won't lead to nothing good.

Precisely. This was the case with GTA IV Steam. What they did wth Max Payne 3: they enforced their ridiculously unwanted puddle of hogwash as a necessity to play a single player game. Takes a proper idiot to decide upon this ingenious marketing move - but here they were.

Can't login on social club anymore, never signed out... What is going on?!
Orca9999 Sep 14, 2013 @ 3:30pm 
Same. Down for me too. This is why internet based sign-on suck for single pleyer games.
Dreakon Sep 14, 2013 @ 3:34pm 
Alright, glad I'm not the only one. Thought something was fudged on my account...

Probably GTAV related, I can wait.

Yes, I was playing a couple hours ago and now when I hit Enter it just sits there. Piece of @@@@

well it that lack of response i guess with such a small player base like here on pc that rankles most i guess they believe our voices are weak in the face of all the excitement of gta 5 coming out. Well take heed guys pc gta 5 will if it actually gets a release will probably have this same crap social club
