Need help with Microsoft Game Room

I am running Win8. I wanted to play Microsoft Game Room games. I downloaded all of the game packs, but could not find a download for the Game Room client itself, so I am not sure if there is a client to run the game packs or not. I also cannot find a way to run the game packs from the Games for Windows client that I used to download the game packs.

At this point I am pretty confused and frustrated. How do I play the game packs that I downloaded? Any help that someone could lend would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Ashwin0,

Your initial assessment is correct. I am unable to use or find Windows Game Room.

Not sure I understand the format question, but I downloaded the files to my Windows 8 laptop. The media directory contains .BIK files that I am guessing are the individual game files. Does that help?

Thanks!

Hi Jacob,

I don't think BIK will help, it will need a custom Windows Game room client, maybe you will need to purchase the basic Windows game room CD which might contain the client software.

btw, BIK is a bink video file which can either be run by RAD video tools or Windows media player. But that being totally off-topic I do not recommend you to download any of these.

 

Good luck

Ashwin

Are you saying that you cannot purchase or download the Game Room client through the Microsoft site? The page located at the following URL:

 

http://www.microsoft.com/games/en-gb/Games/Pages/gameroom.aspx

 

Seems to indicate that you can download it from the "Download Now" link on the left side of the page, but clicking that link only brings you to the Games for Windows client.

 

Thanks,

Jake

Ashwin,

 

And a follow-up question...if I cannot purchase this client from the Microsoft site, do you have any recommendations as to where can I buy it? Amazon does not sell it (or at least I could not find it)...

 

Thanks,

Jake

Hi Jacob,

It doesn't mean that you cannot download the client. If the download does not contain it, we cannot do anything but buy it. You will have to perform a proper search before you can find the client. This is because the game room software is old and a little rare.
