This is gonna be a short blog post. But the purpose speaks volumes.


I know a LOT of people who are in LOVE with Windows 8. Yes, It is Faster than 7, and even though it sucks in the "I don't default to the Desktop you love so much, and the Start menu thingy looks weird on your PC, but I'm cool on tablets....somewhat" department, I do like some of the improvements in the visuals. is one thing I can't get down with....I can't play any games on it.
It's true. There are a TON of games that I can and do play in Windows 7, and they run without any errors or tweaks.

But in Windows 8, they keep crashing like a super drunk female college student at a frat party.
And so we are clear, I made sure that my PC can play these games. I made sure to install DirectX 9 Drivers for compatibility, as most of these games do use DirectX 9, and every game derped - HARD.

If you ever wondered what Bullet Hell Looks like if it was in OS form, it would look like Windows 8.

I don't see what the point of this OS is for - unless you plan on making apps for Windows RT with VS2012, there is no other point in getting/upgrading to Win8.

There was quite a number of games that I really wanted to play on Win 8, and I am totally disappointed that I couldn't.

Here is a list of all the games I attempted to play. Every one of them DERPED:

Tyrian 2000 (GOG)
Guilty Gear X2 (GOG)
Steam Games
Rise of the Triad(GOG)
Descent 1,2,3 Freespace 1 and 2 (GOG)*
Angry Birds (ANY)

*(Note: These games were tested by someone else who owns those games. Thank you "Jacky")
Yes, all of those games can and do play in windows XP and 7 - in 8, Forget it. Not Gonna happen.

It sucks that Microsoft would completely ignore us gamers. It's like we are some kind of abomination to the PC world.

I am a gamer. Everyone Games. Everyone loves to play video games, and yes, some, if not most of us like to play PC games.

Windows 8 has done a grand job in pissing me, and my fellow gamers off, and I take high offense that Microsoft would create such a lopsided OS. A Good OS can accommodate users of all types, and Windows 8 clearly wasn't made for that.

It sucked in the Preview - it sucked in the RC, and it sucks in the final release.
This OS is not for Gamers, Windows 8 hates gamers...

...But....It does look good though.
