Did I mention...

Windows Phone Central will be at E3


Super excited! Please check out my predictions and share your own. :D


I'll be at E3 again this year also. I hope Beeline will be there (Capcom's mobile division). We need to slap some sense into them so they can finally release some games!

Monstafish is pretty decent for only $0.99. Pretty easy achievements as well, even though one is painfully boring to get.

I've read a lot of stories and WP7 in-game reviews of people being double charged. I'm fearing this will eventually happen to me as well given the track record. Do you get 2 purchase confirmation e-mails from MS or do you only find out once you check your credit card statement?

Got two confirmation e-mails in the same minute, went to check my card to make sure I did get double charged and there were 2 charges from the same minute from the Phone marketplace. I was pretty sure that's what happened since both e-mails had slightly different id numbers.

dragon"s blade is on sale for .99 until tomorrow. The regular price is 6.99. This game is sweet, RPG, updated often, and well worth the price. If you like RPG .99 is a steal! This developer is awesome with the support!

Cool! We should meet up. Which company do you work for? Agreed on Capcom/Beeline, too.

If you'd love to carry an old school RPG on your phone, Dragon's Blade is a must have. I was really impressed that it had online support in the game. Sounds like the sale ends sometime today, so get it while you can!

Does anyone have the Nokia Lumia 900? I'm tired of my iPhone 4 and was really interested in it. I actually really like the Windows Phone interface and I used a custom made version of it on my iPhone. My big worry though is that the screen on the Lumia is bad. I know its a step down from the iPhone 4/4S but is it really that bad? I primarily use my phone for music and web browsing.

I've always liked this franchise and while this one has so-so reviews, I'll pick it up since it's only a dollar now!

Unrelated to that, I contacted the chat support and got a call from them and did end up getting a refund on the second charge of Chickens Can't Fly!

I have an arrive, but I have played with the lumia 900. Nice phone. If you go to wpcentral.com there is a forum regarding the phone and could get some insight there too. The reviews on the phone are top notch btw.

good question. I think it depends how you transfer the game saves. I switched phones a couple times but just downloaded my purchases and did not try to transfer progress. I would like to know too. Just backup saves on CPU?

I passed on monkey all a few times...hmm. Anyone recommend?

You know what? Even though I saw the WPCentral article about the sale for Dragon's Blade and don't want to devote too much time gaming on the phone (got my 3DS after all, along with a little backlog on it), I'll just bite on this sale. I'll just hope I don't addicted to it lol

Hmm, is this a permanent price drop?

Also, I don't think you can transfer saves.

Thanks I actually got myself really excited and think I'll pick it up unless the iPhone 5 looks amazing. Then again iOS has gotten very boring and ultimately I don't like the interface at all, it feels like a fisher price OS to me. I was actually glad to hear that the screen looks fantastic even at a lower resolution.

I thought this was the new Super Monkey Ball coming out, got really excited there for a second.

Yeah, I bought it for $2 and had enough fun with it. The tilt controls are pretty stringent, you almost have to tilt to the point that you can't fully see the screen at times. But if you give it some time you'll get the hang of it. Check out the demo beforehand and see how you like it.

I was able to get 150 gamerscore out of it, the last level seems pretty impossible though, I never beat it.

Like Yamayama said, there is sadly no way to transfer game saves. If you're getting a new phone and losing the old one, try to finish up everything you can before making the switch!

Same here. Hate that stupid level and everyone who designed the levels. There is a tombstoning trick though, locking your phone and unlocking to restart on the level with full lives. Hope that still works after the latest patch.

Nice! Battleship I'm looking forward to. Prolly a $3 or $5 price tag though. Might have to wait for a price drop or DotW to bite....I'll defintely be snaggin the Monkeyball game for $1. Mainly for the achievements, haven't played a Monkeyball game since the GameCube era and it's something I'm sure my nieces would enjoy playing for 5 minutes before they go back to Angry Birds :lol:

question

I've been having problems this week running out of space on my Focus. I've deleted probably over 10 games, and my free space in the About section of Settings does not change. Is there something I need to do to reclaim this free space?

Also, I've been playing a lot of trials and games this weekend. I took quite the break from my WP7. BulletAsylum is a bad ass game.

Did you restart the phone after you deleted before you checked the memory?

Yeah, I was hoping for a Summer of WP7 lineup. :) I think June 20th WP8 will be announced? Perhaps a focus on apps and games then? I am intrigued with the smartglass tech. I was also hoping for more connectivity between the phone and xbox. Smartglass is a huge step in that direction, but I was hoping for games that utlize both, like the future of vita and ps3 connectivity.

I am also interested to see nokia and possible pads.

I know I had restarted it a couple times the other day. I just tried again now and went from 599MB of free space to 2.07GB. I feel better now. :)
