Microsoft really wants people to like Windows 8, and while that's quite an endeavor, we can't blame them for trying. Today, Microsoft Studios' PLAY launched for the new OS, packed with 15 launch titles that you can actually play "anywhere Windows 8 games are supported."
PLAY's biggest draw is supposed to be the features it shares with Xbox, like leaderboards, multiplayer modes, and other such staples, though its library of games is pretty all over the place right now. Some of the titles out now do catch our attention, but that can't be said for all 15. Here is the full list of new releases:
- Toy Soldiers (not available on Windows RT)
- 4 Elements: Special Edition
- Hydro Thunder Hurricane
- Rocket Riot 3D
- Reckless Racing Ultimate
- Microsoft Solitaire Collection
- Microsoft Mahjong
- Microsoft Minesweeper
- Pinball FX2
- Gunstringer: Dead Man Running
- Skulls of the Shogun
The final entry, Skulls of Shogun, won't actually be out until the end of January, so keep your pants on. If you're a fan of puzzles, Adera looks to be the stand-out title there.
