Luckily I have not experienced any connection issues. I will say that the unobtainable achievements bother me but its not gonna stop me from playing the game. And The A.I is stupid but I didnt buy the game to play with A.I's so it does'nt really matter to me.


Just beware that once the free one comes out with the WSOP license Full House will be a ghost town.

I Think if I wanted a poker game on XBL I'll just wait for Poker Night at the Inventory 2 from Telltale since it'll have Brock Samson (from Venture Bros.), Sam (from Sam and Max), GLaDOS, and other characters.

I'm not sure it will have MP. And the next poker game will be f2p!

Did you not hear me when I said it has BROCK motherfucking SAMSON?! He straight up killed a guy who's finger was up his ass AND his partner as well! Hell, he tore off his hair and placed it on a shark and used that shark as a trap to tear off a man's head! BROCK SAMSON!

Happily snagged Marvel Avengers pinball set and Guardian Heroes. Already played all the new tables. They sure do a hell of a job with pinball.

Jeff Gertsmann said the AI in the first game was crap so I'll pass as well.

For the love of all that's good (and your mental sanity), pick Dust and forget about Deadlight's existence at all.

Picked up:
-Mercury Hg
-Pinball FX 2 Classic tables

I find of feel like a idiot though...For some reason, I had issues with getting Pinball FX 2 to work (Had to uninstall the original game's demo for FX2 to appear). Mercury Hg is also well worth the 200 MS Points.

I bought exactly the same things you bought, plus the PvZ table.

I never had a problem with Pinball FX2, but it seems people have trouble with it, you are not alone ;) a lot of people ask if they have to download only the table or if it's needed the core game.

Give it some time. It only showed up now that I left my 360 on for 5 hours in Darkstalkers Resurrection's training mode when I went out of town to do stuff on April 1st. Plus it states it'll take 3-5 days in order to appear. I'm just glad it shows the hours since that can be the hardest to keep track of.

Not too big on Poker, but that Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 looks alright. Plus each system has its own special unlockables. XBLA gets avatar awards (like a Portal test chamber & a Bloodwing from Borderlands 2), PSN gets XMB themes, and PC version gets TF2 hats. All versions also include Borderlands 2 bonuses as well.

Anyone play Skulls of a Shogun? Just saw that it had a price drop. (I know late to the game)


I really dug it. Good strategy aspect, good art style(graphics aren't really groundbreaking though), and the dialogue is pretty funny. My opinion of it was probably boosted a bit by the fact that I'm a windows phone user. You can load your save games on the phone and play it on the go. Exact same version across both platforms. It also has decent multiplayer, both local and online. Plus for online multi there are two options, live or turn based. Turn based allows you to have multiplayer matches with both Xbox players and phone players. It's the first such game to do that as far as I'm aware. I recommend supporting it just so we see more of this functionality in the future because it's pretty neat.

What Junpei said. Dust is fantastic. I'm about halfway through Deadlight, and it's dreadful. Achievements are laughably easy, though, if you're into that, and it's a 400 gamerscore game that will take you 4-5 hours max. But that's the only redeeming quality I can find with the game, and it's not a very compelling one.

You should get a free Raptr account, it will track your gameplay time for you;)

Just a question: am I the only one trying to get the 20 hour punchcard without simply leaving my console on?
If they had sliced open my belly, my lunch would have spilled out, and I would've had to eat it all over again!

They added an extra achievement on Steam: Tales of Glory, which requires you to complete Nightmare mode, unlocked upon finishing the game once.
Basically, Nightmare mode is identical to a normal playthrough: no stronger enemies, no reduced health, no new content. The only two differences are that Randall wears his
Spoiler
and all checkpoints are disabled, meaning that you must go through the game from start to end in one sitting... Tequila should have called it Nightmare FUEL mode...

Truth to be told, I dunno if saves between acts still works in Nightmare mode, but I was so burned out after completing it that I didn't want to touch it anymore, even with a 10-foot pole...

14 day trials don't count for sales, and a lot of games I've noticed (Halo will only let you play social) don't see you as gold:cry:

Not at all! Though I do leave it on anyway for small periods of time on occasion, I plan on whittling down my XBLA backlog.

Raptr sometimes tells me how long I've played, but it might take a while for it to figure out how long I played, especially with the pop-up informing me on my desktop.

& I'm doing about half each. I'm earning hours from the XBLA games I bought/will buy this month, then if I feel like it, might leave it on a certain XBLA game just to be safe. Better safe than sorry.

See I can't do that. I have an older xbox and to make it even worse, my wireless xbox router will discount randomly and crash the system. I plan on trying to play the walking dead, dust, sonic adventure/4, ms.spolsion man, and perhaps toy soldiers. I rather see what the avatar award is going to be, so I can rather play through my retail backlog.

No, you are not alone. I'm playing Puzzle Quest and Trials evo, so the 20 hours will be easy.

Everyone is saying deadlight is crap. When I tried Hydrophobia, I couldn't figure out the frequency hacking mini game type of thing. There wasn't a tutorial for it, may go back and try it again.

Thank you guys for all the outpouring of love for Dust:AET, hope you enjoy the game :)

As for me, time to finally splurge on some tables for Pinball FX. Also, I know that Hydrophobia isn't amazing, but I picked it up on Steam and was disappointed with the replaced VO. I sort of want to get the original VO on the XBLA version.
