And that is totally ridiculous. People are buying from it, downloading from it. Not uploading to it with malware/viruses/trojans.
So be it I would never use it anyway and I'll never use Win 8 either. Just like I never used Vista.

Yep, and companies with marketplaces enforce the security their Brains put in place. If your Brain chooses otherwise, they simply turn off their marketplaces. So, no problems for anyone, yes?
And so, you too would not need to be reading a thread with [WIN8] in the title. So again, not a problem for you at all.
How would anyone know from the title of this thread, and the first post, that if they chose to assert some control over their own computer (which has Win8 because they could not buy one with a different OS) that they could not get this game?
The OP might have made it clear in the first post that this is available only to those who allow Microsoft to own them (you also have to create a Microsoft account for your new Win 8 computer if you plan to get anything from Microsoft store. This allows Microsoft to track everything you do if you have been naive enough to NOT create a local user account when setting up your new computer).
In other words, if the first post (and the link) had made it clear this was a stupid, extremely limited, with tons of nasty strings attached, "free" (not a bit free really) download that is a METRO app, not a Windows 8 Desktop application then I would not have read beyond the first post. It really should have been in the title "Gunslinger METRO ONLY app free".
I think with the advent of Win 8 being on almost all new computers now, and a lot of users being unhappy with Metro (installing Start8, etc) that titles and original posts would benefit from being a bit more informative.--
