How to get MKK and GFWL Working on Windows 8
By VideoPower
Although GFWL is on its way out, not all games will replace it with Steamworks. Until then, try this guide if you have Windows 8 and are having problems. This should help. I still haven't upgraded to 8.1 yet so if anyone can confirm this guide works with that too, that would be great.

Once you make the local profile on Games for windows, it will never ask you to sign in again and won't get you problems. Just make sure you have GFWL installed then open it before opening the game and make your local account. I can't remember the exact steps but once I did that, it worked every time for me.
