    I'm hoping to see full retail games on windows 8. Especially because GFWL was abandoned.

    I would be playing these...however, Microsoft cannot sort their shit out and have yet to dispatch pre ordered surfaces here in the UK. Great.

    Can't wait to get a Windows 8 device, as well as a WP8 device.
    I just wish when you get on these games on your phone or computer it says your online, not that you were online a minute ago like how it is now.

    A Phizzle: it's 50/50, and all your achievements on Windows 8 are earned "offline".

    They need to turn this into GFWL so I can party chat with Xbox people.

    Also Fruit Ninja is bugged and Arcade mode will always crash thus making an achievement unobtainable online.

    You can move the date to Sept.1 I heard and earn it offline. Haven't tried for myself yet.


    I was just saying I wish I could have Jetpack joyride on my tag. Was expecting windows phone but this worked.

    Jetpack Joyride is tops and its free. Fruit ninja it seems is about 5 years old now and as usual MS price it at 5 times the price is in on android and from what I here from a few beta testing gamers W8 is not great so I don't think i'll be rushing out to buy a new tablet or the OS for my super computer

    Did you miss the part where gfwl doesn't support party chat either.

    Oh I know I mean it needs to be implemented into it. It needs to become GFWL but GFWL needs a huge update like our dashboard.


    As these Windows 8 games don't put us online like GFWL which is nice when you use your Xbox for netflix but I wish I could be online on my PC and chat in a party too.

    Despite the occassional gfwl release its been all but abandoned. Id personally prefer party support from my phone than my laptop.

    Played Jetpack Joyride for 3 hours last night. Kept saying "Just 1 more mission". Glad it's not on WP or I'd never stop playing it

    I already have windows 8 on 3 devices now and i think it is awesome. Plus, if you have windows 7 you can go to this site www.windowsupgradeoffer.com and get it for only $14.99. Just put any computer off of best buys web site in and they will give you the discount price.

    I had no issues at all with Fruit Ninja.

    Jet pack joyride is excellent. I'd have got it even if it cost £
    If at first you don't succeed,boost.
