Anybody had game compatibility issue on Windows 8?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am so curiously how much game compatibility in Windows 8? Because I am last using Windows 8 RC, AFAIK Korean MMO games had compatibility issue in Windows 8

So do you have compatibility issue on your favorite games in Windows 8?

Steam won't work in Windows 8 are just poor jokes.....

I have no problems at all.. steam and a bunch of other games.. works flawless.

the question is why do you need win8? if its a hipster like decision dont do this..
i have win8 only because i got it for free, no need to serve MS with more cash
in its mouth..

My friend said Call of Duty doesn't run in Windows 8, but it was totally wrong.

Actually I'm stick with Windows 7 because I.... I don't know why.....

Someone said Windows 8 (and also WP) looks bad, but they not seeing the function! laughingsmiley.gif

The appearance is completely customisable.. not ny MS but with some tweaks. my w8 looks and behaves
like 7 with just some different color and iconstyles.

but like i said, nothing worth spending money for if you have w7, u just need to know how to use it.
the rest is a BIG BLA by guys that have no clue.. mostly

What was exactly your issue?!

I get to the developer splash screen and get a black screen afterwards, apparently it is a common problem and the developers has said they are not supporting Windows 8 at all.

What have you tried to avoid this / Are there dudes that does not
suffer under this problem using win8 ?!

Tried windowed?
