    MathGuy42 said:^ Yes, you can redownload delisted Windows 8 apps. The post you quote is correct. I give slightly more detailed directions here.So same as regular redownload basically from the sound of it. Sounds good. I reinstalled Windows recently and haven't downloaded several games that were recently delisted.

    Furthermore, this goes again to why I think that digital-only releases aren't the way to go. Give me a physical disc so that I can pull it out later.
    People still have disc drives on their computers? shock

    The following are also gone:
    BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
    Toy Soldiers: Cold War
    Tentacles: Enter the Mind

    If anyone has luck finding these, please let me know, otherwise that unfortunate list can be extended...
    Um, yeah, I found all of them actually
    I don't see Tentacles, but I see the other 2.

    Correction: I don't see it in the US, but I see it in the Danish store (free, downloading now). It may be in others as well.

    A portable external. I like to watch DVDs occasionally and (SURPRISE!) don't like digital-only movies. wink

    Tentacles: Enter the Mind is still in a soft release, and is only available in one market as the developers are still working on the game for a full release (picking the studio's home country of Denmark to do so).

    It seems to me like games that don't require Windows 8.1 are getting removed.

    So according to the statement, it is possibly down to a publishing end with MS? Fair enough.

    In regards to WP, the game list is vastly expanding for non-XBL titles. I expect this to lead to more XBL titles over time, especially as most companies are probably waiting for the 8.1 update to drop officially.

    As long as more games appear than what's delisting laugh

    I've had two generations of WP and I will swap to a Sony xperia when I'm ready to update. They don't support WP enough and there seems to be less options as time goes on, there's hardly any apps and they charge double for games just for it to be live enabled, then will remove them at the drop of a hat and you can't ever redownload them. They've just concentrated on their consoles and the rest isn't important...

    Edit: Not to mention Nokia get a much better experience. Everyone else gets screwed - screen timeout, less apps, no way to track your phone usage... Its a shame because I really enjoyed my wp7 but wp8 has been terrible.

    Very puzzling, as Microsoft has recently been releasing titles themselves, such as Jigsaw, Jackpot, Sudoku, and treasure hunt; while I haven't seen another company publish in awhile. Last one I can remember off the top of my head was Kingdoms & Lords from Gameloft.
    (EDIT: We did get ExZeus recently so that was another company)

    The Windows Store shouldbe a gold mine and adding Xbox support should only solidify that gold. Clearly, that's the not case since more people aren't publishing under Xbox windows 8. cry

    No BlazBlue? Well, I will now officially never get a W8 Platform. Fuck W8 and WP, Microsoft has done a truly wretched job handling these delistings.

Fuck W8 and WP, Microsoft has done a truly wretched job handling these delistings.Blazblue is still available, as are all of the other games that people have mentioned in this thread. The only delisted games are the ones in the article, or ones that had been delisted before this week.

    ^ Punky is correct I just went and snagged it as well. I was going to get toy soldiers but I just don't have 10 bucks to spend on it.
