On a day plagued by bad news for Windows 8 gamers, I'm afraid that it isn't getting any better. A third game is on its way towards being removed from the store, but if you're quick, you still have a chance of grabbing it as it is still available to download. That game is The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running (Win 8). The game's Facebook page explains it all:
Welp folks, we've had a good run but I'm awfully tired and it's 'bout time I hung up my hat...As I said earlier, the game is still available for purchase for FREE. We have no idea for how long this will remain on sale as the game is due to be removed today, so don't waste any time!

Microsoft Studios is always evaluating its portfolio of products to determine what is best for gamers, families and the company, and this decision was the result of the natural ebb and flow of our portfolio management. Customers will still be able to play The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running in single player mode and use any content they have already acquired, but effective May 21, 2014 The Gunstringer will no longer be available in the Store. In the coming weeks we will suggest some other games for you to try. Thank you and we hope to welcome you into our other gaming communities.
