Games for Windows: going on an Upgrade

It’s great news for gamers especially when they’re running Windows PC. With Windows still continuing to be the most important gaming pedestal all over the world, Redmond Company gives the OS’ user the advantage as they design a streamline where gamers are allowed to access games: Games for Windows “Games on Demand”.

As revealed by Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson), the director of programming for Xbox Live (Microsoft’s gaming network), Games for Windows Games on Demand is a newly launched downloadable application service where games’ full version can be bought and downloaded. A complete list of games is available through their client; in downloading it however, be sure to get Tinker a free game that allows you to add updates and points to the Gamerscore “without leaving your desk”. The said game is now available as a standalone download for Windows 7, Vista, XP, SP2, and SP3.

The game application also gives the leverage some users may want especially with the new Games for Windows LIVE Setup 3.2. It allows games such as Fallout 3, Batman, Arkham Asylum, DIRT 2, Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5 and many more. The users are also allowed access to more than just the actual games. They are allowed to get add-ons, demos and more without interrupting the game.

The latest release for this gaming application is presently compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP. However, even with the promise of good gaming due to optimum performance, there is still the question of how critiques find it. Then again it is pretty excusable if there are negative comments since it just went live yesterday. One comment given by a gamer was that of the price of the Viva Pinata which actually sells $9.99. If a boxed version was to be bought instead, there are offices who offer this at a lesser price. However, the said game is also in tandem with Shadowrun making the deals here to be a great for kids.

There is nothing wrong with giving it a shot even with the negative reviews. Like what was earlier said, critiques may find it boring at this point but can be forgiven since it is only beginning.
