Is Rayman Fiesta Run significantly better than Jungle Run? I bought Jungle Run when it was on sale after all the rave reviews, and honestly I found it to be one of the most overrated games I have ever played. Sure it's pretty, but the gameplay is repetitive and kind of boring. Plus the achievements are unnecessarily hard. Just wondering if Fiesta run offers more variety or improves upon the formula in any way.

Pretty much the same gameplay wise, but has easy achievements. Every level has a challenge version of it with a lot more ways to die, but it also has power-ups that you can buy with in-game currency that makes it a walk in the park. Very good game and one of the best on Windows Phone. I hope they make more. I loved playing Rayman on Sega Saturn.

I grabbed the Win8 version of Fiesta Run since I have a lot more free space on my Win8 PC than my WP8.

 

Has anyone downloaded Rabbids Big Bang for Win8? The reviewers have a lot of complaints about the display.

I got 100% of the achievement (was actually the 2nd person to do so).

The reason I quit is:

1- Lost interest

2- Ran out of space on my phone so had to delete a few things

So any thoughts on Cold Alley? That's the DOTW for Win8.

 

Edit: The game is buggy so I'm just going to pass. I need to spend more time playing/finishing my WP games anyway, so I can clear out that space. So it's a good thing I won't be picking up any distractions this week.

How the hell does Shoot 1 Up take up 201 MB is beyond me. That is double what PvZ takes up. Ridiculous!

Well, today I got a notification of an update available for my 521. The update was around 1GB and of course it needed even more space to install. As a result I had to remove half of my games just to get the damn thing. Now that it's done...anyone know of significant changes?

I was really hoping they'd patch in the ability to run games off SD. I guess I need to look for the document that lists the changes.

In two weeks, I'll finally be able to upgrade my phone and I plan on getting the Lumia 1520. But before I do, does anyone know of any reason why I should wait for the 8.1 devices? Have any specs been announced/leaked? Do we even know when they will be coming out? I'm not worried about the 1520 becoming obsolete or anything, but I do want to ensure that I am making the best purchase for myself because these phones are insanely expensive. At the same time, I'm really anxious to finally dump my current phone for one that is up-to-date, is fully working, and doesn't require me to delete everything just so I cake take a video or download a game.

Saving apps and games to SD cards is the only really important feature of 8.1 I've read about.  As I understand it 8.1 is an update to W8 phones though and won't require the buying of a new phone to get it.

Yeah, as far as I know, a new device isn't needed for 8.1, but there are going to be new devices soon that will have it preloaded. I just don't know if they will be worth waiting for or if I should just stick with the 1520.

The newer devices spec wise will likely be on par with the 1520 and Lumia Icon. So long as you like the phablet size there's nothing worth waiting for.

 

Lumia 930 will likely be a lot like the 1520 except packed in a 4.5" display. The successor to the Lumia 1020 likely won't be launching until the end of this year, because if it launches alongside the Lumia 930 there won't be any reason to get the 930.

I don't think Psycho Dad would use a mobile phone. He seems like a rotary and payphone kind of guy to me.

Thanks for the input. I'm definitely not patient enough to wait for the 1025, although I would certainly consider it if its release were only a month or two away. As for the 930, I like it, but I never want to get another phone that doesn't have a memory card slot. Lacking one has given me so much grief with my current phone (Focus Flash) because I have to give up so much by not having expandable memory. That's the biggest selling point of the 1520 for me (and I like the ridiculous size of it for some reason). It may not have a ton of internal space, but I'm content with the thought of carrying around a few microSD cards for different types of media.

I have the 32GB 1520 from AT&T.  I love it.  I sit at a desk all day, so the large size w/ kickstand case makes it highly functional.

 

After a week or 2 with the larger size, 4-5" phones will feel like toddler toys in your hands.I still have my o.g. Samung Focus to play some WP7 games, and it feels rediculously small in my hands now.  I'm amazed I was ever able to use the Focus on a daily basis.

Yeah, I thought I wouldn't really like the large size, I really liked it when I messed with a 1520 at the store. The only turn-off with it is that, for the most part, I won't be able to use it with one hand because I have stubby fingers. Even the 920 is too big for me to effectively use one-handed. I'm willing to make the sacrifice for an awesome phone, though.

Pretty much every rumor around is saying the Lumia 930 will have a Micro SD card slot. Would make sense as well since Windows 8.1 is improving Micro SD Support.

Oh, I wasn't aware of that (regarding the 930). When I looked up specs for the 930, the few sites I checked had it listed as not having a slot. I guess I should've checked a few more sites. I'll have to keep an eye out for the announces made at BUILD next week and see what they say about it. If the release isn't too far off, I may consider it, although I'm still somewhat leaning toward the 1520.
