On Casual Gaming on the Windows Metro Interface

There are now oodles of games on the Windows Store, meant for the Metro interface. Generally, the games are pretty at par with those released on other platforms when it comes to quality. But for games bearing the XBox mark, I find it increasingly difficult to justify even launching them. Upon launch, the game will try to sign in to the XBox service, and this process can take several minutes even on broadband. Add the loading time for the app itself and it becomes problematic, but it gets worse, because most of these games won’t let you play along until you’re signed in. Way to kill the urge to pop up a quick game for a quick fix.
