haha yeah i got almost all the achievement in the tournament just those last 3 i needed to play on all 3 difficulty the only one that have me a problem was the Normal one had to play that twice to unlock because i lost the 1st time lol other then that the Easy and Hard was 1st try :)


I have the worst luck at Uno, so I'm hoping the Normal and Hard games don't take way too long.

EDIT: Oh wow, you only have to win 1 hand on Normal and Hard. I thought you had to win the whole game. That makes it way easier. That said, still took me 8 hands before my first hand on Normal. I hate Uno.

Yeah you have to win the 1st hand on Easy,Normal, And Hard on Quick Play if you lose your first hand it you will not get the achievement but like @ ZombieToast the CPU just give you the wins sometime well at least for me i would have a Blue Card left when i call uno and they would just change the Color to Blue some how and i would just win lol.. and on the Tournament i probably only lost one time but at least I lost on a round that wasn't for a Achievement lol

I was streaming music from the nokia app for about three hours then downloaded a few playlists when I got access to WiFi. Played for another three hours and still had half battery left. During regular use, it will go about a day and a half before it starts beeping.

Battery is much better now. Phone has been unplugged for 12 hours and I have around 40% battery.

Connect 4 is .99. Wasn't it 2.99?

Based on the reviews you probably don't. 2.5 stars. It is apparently super buggy and has long load times.

Nice! I've never heard of it, but it looks pretty fun. $1 price is always a plus, too!

Connect 4 scores a price drop, dawg

And I have it on good word that another game is dropping to 99 cents this week (unless the drop gets delayed). Keep your eyes open on Wednesday!

Connect 4 crashes my phone worse than anything I've ever experienced. Every 20 games or so, it crashes my Lumia 900 to the point where I can't even turn it off and I have to wait 10+ minutes for the phone to time itself out and auto-shutdown and reset. It's staggering how such a simplistic game can be so poorly made and crash a phone to the extremes that it does. Awful.

Can someone with a Lumia verify if Mirror's Edge price has changed?

Also, my phone finally shipped today... Just 5 days before Amazon will have the Lumia 920 on sale for a dollar, argh.

It's not official, but I heard it through the grapevine. I actually would have cancelled my order today in favor of waiting for Amazon's sale, but now it's shipped so I probably should just keep it...

As for the Black Friday sale, last year there was a BF week sale on 3 games that started the Tuesday that week. We may see a similar deal this week - still waiting on word from Microsoft. Heck, Mirror's Edge might even be a BF week thing from Nokia.

Woo Hoo! Got Mirror's Edge free on my WP7. Very nice little freebie, although Nokia owes me one for purchasing that POS Connect 4 a few days ago, so I'll accept this as an apology.

Thanks for sharing. I'll probably grab Carcassone and Cracking Sands. Mush is a really fun, relaxing game. Highly recommended. Gravity Guy is also great. Sonic 4 is meh and haven't got around to playing Altair's Chronicles yet, which ironically I bought last year during their Black Friday sale.

No problem. And 6 games on sale at once (2 of which are quite new) is the best WP7 Xbox Live sale we've ever had. Last year was only 3 older games, and the prices were much worse.

I'm just not impressed because they're not games that I'm interested in enough to pay those prices (although I do want two of them...eventually). For anyone who really wants those games now, I'm sure it's a fantastic sale.

I did, thanks for linking the review and all right away too. Do you happen to have any idea when you all will be getting accessories for the NL 810 on your site? Oh and did you all ever give away any codes for the wpcentral app? Think I missed that..
