Any word on W8 games I have missed?
I recently installed the CP on my 50 year old parent's computer to hold them over until the final version. Despite all the hate for the OS, they seem to like it. There are a few issues they throw at me that I kind of have to agree with. For example, they want to know why there are no pin to desktop options for the WinRT apps? I understand it would be difficult from a programmers point of view, but that one feature could make the desktop and start screen much more seamless and I'm sure it could be done.
The second and most important issue, and the reason why I've created this post, is why are there no MSGames yet? 90% of my parents computer use consists of MSHearts, MSSolitaire, and all of the other pre-loaded games. Now I read an article that Minesweeper is on its way with XBL integration, but what about everything else? Is there a time frame I'm not aware of? You would think it is close considering that CP had Solitaire built into, but they are pretty anxious to get their beloved games back.
Are there any suitable replacements you guys and gals know of that are free to download? Mom is mostly interested in vegas ruled klondike solitaire, and dad is mostly interested in a good ol' game of hearts. It seems every where I search for a good free-ware replacements, they all turn to be crap. If any of you could post a link or two it would be much appreciated.
One last note. My father seems to hate the idea of hot corners, and keep in mind, he is very tech-illiterate. He made a very good suggestion that would, IMO, work very well for non-tech users. A simple right click opens the app panel as well as the right click pop down menus. What do you guys think?
