    No multiplayer "Metro" games at all?

    I always wondered... why am I signing into xbox live to play these games when they're all single player and none of them can be played with someone online.

    I'm looking for a game like this to play with someone that doesn't own a console nor wants to play a big major game. Just a simple multiplayer game, even if it's like checkers or backgammon or something. There seems to be no "XBOX live" game in windows 8 metro that has multiplayer. =/ What's up with that?

    the beginning of the end. If I develop a game, I will make sure it work on desktop or on a web platform like Java ( facebook as example ) , Why should I lost time and money to develop something for Metro ? only few peoples use Windows 8 and you have to give 25% of your income to Microsoft, bad choice if you ask me.
