Not missing much with Kingdoms and lords... Its justa reskin of Ice Age pretty much

 

That's what it looked like. However the achievements aren't be weird numbers that force me to keep playing for months.

Kingdoms & Lords mysteriously became available for my phone today. I guess someone didn't flip the right switch during the soft launch.

Anybody else having trouble with Kingdoms and Lords saving notification settings? I have to turn them off every time I play.

Like all Gameloft games it comes with a complementary host of bugs. I've experienced the notifications getting turned on too.

Yeah, I've been "playing" it nonstop too. Too bad that Gameloft has to inflate the price of the microtransactions so much. The price of some buildings is just absurd.

That's right. But if you really want to keep playing games on your Windows Phone, sadly you'll have to move beyond Xbox titles eventually.

Anybody having "haunted" phone problems lately? Such as voice commands (hold home button) turning on by itself and volume going from 5 to 25 in a second. All while not touching the phone. 2nd time in a week. Frustrating when your music is pausing constantly or playing Rayman.

Sweet. It doesn't have cloud saving though, right? So you have to get the WP & Win8 achievements separately.

Hmmm it actually does support cloud saves. So this should pretty easy.

If you want to be efficient, you can unlock a lot of Achievements simultaneously. You have to play from both devices basically at the same time to do it. See the XB3A Achievement guide for the strategy.

Farm frenzy 2 is the red stripe deal, on sale for 99 cents.

I hope there's a decent Black Friday sale. I really wanna pick up final fantasy and chaos rings.

I got Farm Frenzy 2 during the last sale. Decent game for $0.99, but the later levels become too hard and really time consuming. Definitely demo it first as the gameplay is not for everyone.

 

To those interested in achievements, this game does have one pretty rough achievement for getting gold on all levels. The casual gamer will likely only get 100/200 before they get tired of the game.

 

I am also hoping for a decent Black Friday WP sale on games that have not been on sale since I got my WP last May. I think Final Fantasy and Chaos Rings are really wishful thinking, although FF has been on sale once, just not that much off.

I can argue that point if I was feeling a bit better. I am just going to say that sometimes "ignorance is bliss" and leave it at that.

 

 

I wish Microsoft would do a weekly red stripe deal for Windows 8. Then I may pick up some games other than the free Gameloft crap.

 

Did I call it or what?  Let's try this then: "I wish Microsoft would make Plants vs Zombies the red stripe deal of the week next week.........<waits>

 

 

Moving on.... I wish they would release a patch that lets you run apps off the SD card. My phone is choking on the ~1Gig of internal memory that is taken up by Six Guns. I am forced to remove games now whenever I want to install something new because of this behemoth. If GL priced their virtual wares more reasonably I would drop enough dollars on the game to enable me to get the achievements out of the way. I had no problem doing that with Uno & Friends, but that game doesn't make you feel like you're being ripped off.

 

Also, I am 100% sure I have never been able to install Crimson Dragon on my phone since it's not beefy enough. Now all of a sudden it lets me do it. Not sure what's going on there.
