I downloaded the Harbor Master update, but have yet to try it.

I played a bunch of Harbor Master last night. I still noticed the lines not being drawn exactly as I traced them. It didn't seem to bother me like it did when the game first came out.

When a WP7 game gets updated, are there release notes anywhere? Like with iPhone apps, the developers usually tell you what they changed in an update. Maybe it tells you in the Zune software on PC? I will investigate. :)

Here's my Fast and Furious Adrenaline review. It's not a bad game if you like easy Achievements.

Also, here are release notes for the Harbor Master version 1.1 update.

I ended up buying Pac-Man. That game is frickin hard as hell. I think the XBLA version let you start a new game at the highest level you had reached. The same isn't true in this version. I don't see myself unlocking half the achievements in this game.

I've started playing Harbor Master again. I've got all but 3 achievements now. Getting 500 cargo delivered in one game is going to be very hard. The best I've done is 242. I haven't even done 10,000 cargo total. That 50,000 cargo achievement is just plain dumb.

geoDefense is this weeks game. I played the trial and liked it enough for $3.

I was looking through the games to see if I could spot the deal of the week. I noticed a game called Glyder was $1.99. That seems like the price of a deal of the week. I hate all forms of flying games. So, I probably won't be picking this up. I did download the trial and will at least try it.

Now I will find out the game has always been $1.99 and some other game is the deal. :)

No game has a set price of 1.99, so Glyder is the DotW.

Played a bunch of geoDefense today. Managed to beat all the easy levels without dying. Had to replay a couple of them quite a few times to get it done. I have a feeling I won't be able to manage not dying in all the medium and hard levels. Unfortunately they have a lot of achievement points tied into that.

Pokedex Mobile now has a free version for those of you who play! The app has also dropped from $2.99 to $1.99.

(I'm the developer btw :) If you have any comments, feel free to PM me!)

I won't be buying any games this week. Looks like the airplane flying game is the deal of the week. I remember playing the demo a while ago and hating it. Sonic 4 is the new release this week. Definitely not buying that. Especially at the price they want for it.

I will say Sonic 4 is the first game I've played that runs just as well as the iPhone version.

Hey guys, I didn't see a FAQ on the first two posts so forgive me if this has been covered.

Are WP7 games able to be purchased with MS points? A quick search indicates no, and if that is the case does anyone know if there are plans to make that possible?

They might allow it in the future, but not now. You pay either with credit card or by adding purchases to your cell phone bill.

How do you get setup to have your purchases charged to your cell phone bill? All my purchases on my previous phones were that way, but when buying XBL games on my WP7 from verizon it charges the cc attached to my live account. Would prefer to have everything show up on my bill.

On the purchase confirmation screen, there should be a link to switch the payment method. Could be that Verizon doesn't allow it, but maybe you just overlooked the link.

Made my first WM7 purchase. I just can't pass over another way to beat Plants vs Zombies again. I just got done finishing it on my android device and got it for my Focus which is my work phone. I've had it since the release and never bought a game until now.
Probably be the only game I ever buy because the ridiculous prices unless I get something on sale.

I played Angry Birds long enough to get the first achievement. It's Angry Birds alright.

I'll pick up Women's Murder Club as well.

I was just telling my wife that I wish a hidden object game was on the phone and I guess there was all along. Think I'll end up picking up Women's Murder Club.

Played a bunch of Angry Birds yesterday. That game gets ridiculously hard. I got to level 3-5 and spent at least an hour on it. Early on, I watched videos on how to beat it on youtube, but that really doesn't seem to help. I'd try to do the exact same things, but would never get the same result. When I finally beat it, I feel it was pure luck.

I then went on to 3-6 and spent probably 15 minutes on it before quitting. Considering there are probably 100 or more levels left in the game, I'm thinking about giving up on this game. Just not having any fun with it anymore.

edit: After the crying, I went back and beat that level and probably 10 more past that.

If you missed Twin Blades before it was delisted, you'll have a chance to get it again next week.

Twin Blades returns on July 6

I haven't tried Angry Birds yet as I'm trying to finish off Plants vs. Zombies. Such a long (and wonderful) game! Passed you up on the Leaderboards, Hoffer.

This is my first time owning Angry Birds, and it's just a great game. If I can't get a level, usually if I just come back to it later, I'll get it, and it's just a perfect pick up and play game. First purchase on my WP7, and very happy with it :)

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

That women's murder club game is glitchy on my focus. Twice when I came back to it and go to continue it just loads endlessly and I have to start a brand new game. I even redownloaded it and still have the issue.

Sorry to hear that. I had a problem with it crashing during a mid-game cinema as my review states, but that was the only glitch I ran into on my Focus. :(
