The underlying API for Metro games uses DirectX on desktop. They adjust to your screen resolution, and in general look and sound very well. It's not like you are playing a scaled-up pixelated application. There are bunch of free or demo applications in Windows Store already. The navigation there needed some work, at least for the store I can access through release preview.

Also, the games control fine with mouse and keyboard. Some of the games like Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope, Flow etc actually work better with mouse, compared to the touch interface.
