Purchased Bulletstorm today and now after it installed I get a popup that says "Games from Windows must verify the release date of your game". First off WTF? Second, it doesn't go anywhere from there. The window just pops up and tells me that and doesn't do anything or have anything to click. Worse yet, it seems the only way to "downgrade" my windows 8 is with a hard copy of Windows 7. Is anyone aware of a workaround to make games run on this blasted OS? If I am forced to buy a copy of Windows 7, I'll lose all my games I painstakingly downloaded as I will delete the entire Windows 8 partition out of spite. Elp!

Try hitting enter... that was a 'resolution' in M$ own support stuff.

Also, were you on a relatively responsive internet connection when you tried to launch? Apparently that whole LIVE thing can be pretty picky about how fast stuff responds to its validation garbage.

Are you running the game in desktop mode (similar screen as Windows 7 but without the start button). Some games only work in that mode with Windows 8.

I can run all of my games in Windows 8 so far but am doing it from that mode.

Well I'm on a sattelite connection but its not currently throttled. I'll try enter haha! I am running in desktop mode, so far only bullet storm has given me issues. I bought oblivion too and it has the windows live thing on the box, I'm dreading the install and frustration that'll more than likely come with the live program

Its a pretty big problem if they have a support page about it. So i wouldn't worry so much =D.
