    There is a full screen mode for Terraria. Who doesn't notice that when testing?

    Minecraft always crashes Windows 8 after playing for a while, and my computer ends up restarting itself. I imagine this is more of an issue with Java, however.

    Dirt 3 will not run for me
    The screen will go black as if it is trying to switch tasks then the process will end itself.

    Oh wow, after all this time, I never expected the thread to blow up again. Credits go to Al Bundy for messaging me to update the thread. I will try if I get time, but I am currently working on a co-worker's netbook, so until that is done, you can't expect much of an update just yet.

    I'll just add to this, that I've narrowed it down to be the file installscript.vdf that is simply borked, at least for me. Every time I try to verify the game cache, this file fails and needs to be reinstalled. Could someone else on Windows 8 with L.A. Noire confirm this?

    That sounds like a Steam issue.

    I haven't had this issue running the RTM.
    Dota 2 and League of Legends both work in Windowed mode.

    Dark Souls does NOT work for me. Crashes on startup.
    If I run it in XP compatibility mode, it'll start in offline mode without the ability to save.

    Age of Empires Trial - Playable, some colors are messed up. (Fullscreen and without Steam for obvious reasons)
    Not sure if this has already been posted, but the workaround for distorted colors in Age of Empires 2 and most likely AOE 1 is to alt-tab out of the game after starting it and end explorer.exe. It's been a problem since Vista IIRC.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 works flawlessly for me on a 64bit Windows 8 platform.

    Windowed and full screen. That's through Origin though.
