Games For Windows Live works fine, you just need to download the updated installer. You should find the latest installer here.


That made no difference. Fable III still loads to a black screen with the custom pointer. Lastest nVidia drivers, latest GFWL.

I own Fable III. Let me install it and see what happens on my end here. Note I am using an AMD card, so that may cause a bit of a difference.

Batman Arkham City and Batman Arkham Asylum both GFWL titles don't work correctly for me. The usual pressing of the END key does not bring the profile selection dropdown, so while the game may work you can't actually save anything because you can't access your profile.

Edit: Fixed for me, simply just uninstalled everything related to GFWL, rebooted and re-installed the client and it's working again :)

The only time I had problems with games is when I had hyperv installed, hyperv has some low level processes that run that slow games down a bit. Otherwise for me, gaming is faster in win8 for me.
