    Hi antstubell,
    I'm running STEAM too and like you say HL works fine. Another game that won't run as of yet is DiRT2 but give it time.. :)

    Yeah Borderlands 2 isn't working for me neither.

    Although I could get most of my games to work. I should've waited until they all released compatibility patches for games to upgrade to Windows 8...but $40 was too good to resist.

    Its a shame that they haven't had the patches ready for windows 8's launch. At the same time I cannot say I'm all that surprised!

    I have Steam installed as well and Borderlands works fine. No issues, other than the fact that I need to get a much better graphics card lol.

    All my other games work great too.

    I have steam and everything is fully functional. I haven't run into any problems involving windows 8.

    Only 1 game of mine doesn't work which is Modern Warfare 2. I'm not sure if its Windows 8.

    I'm able to run most of my games on Windows 8. I was having a problem with L.A. Noire, but downloading the latest patch fixed it. I also have Steam and it's working perfectly! However, Portal and Half-Life 2 are not working. Can anybody say how to get it running?

    So far, I have no problems with Steam and the games I own running on Windows 8. So far, so good.
