Its a promo because of the new Rio movie. They've added Rio2 levels and other enhancements. I actually liked this one more than the others.

Well on the plus side the achievements look much easier than some of the other Angry Birds games. Might actually play this one a bit.

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.

Will the Lumia 521 be updated to 8.1? I am sick of the 32gb micro being useless for me and my phone is always full.

I guess we should get used to repeat sales from here on out. Pickings are slim on the ol' WP front.

Yes, all phones with wp8 can be upgraded to 8.1.

Rayman Jungle Run is also the Win8 deal this week for $1.50

After playing Fiesta run, I just cannot bring myself to play the inferior (and aggravating) jungle run. I have it on WP, so I'll pass on the Win8 version.

I might pick it up on Win8. I read that playing both makes that impossible achievement not impossible.

Rovio doesn't have to add levels to their Angry Birds games (already a ton of content), but they do anyways and for free. Thanks Rovio

So follow a crappy week of deals with a crappier week of deals. Great! Then again, I'll buy -almost- anything if it's cheap enough so maybe I shouldn't complain too much.

You can pause the game on your phone or Win8 and play the level on the other a few times until you feel confident enough that you can finish it without getting killed.

Throne Together gets a regal update

 

Halo: Spartan Assault gets an epic sale next week - Yes, the WP8 version sucks, but I still consider this a great sale.

 

Also, here's the video of me and other judges from the Big Indie Pitch. You'll see me at 9:20.

Thanks for the info. Hexic is out for WP (and I think Win8). I already have the Win8 version from Canada so I am not sure.

Nice! I'll finally be grabbing that Spartan Assault game. I consider myself to be in the lowest tier of Halo lovers so I've always had interest in the game but that price tag was like a pitbull just keeping me away from the game.

Kingdoms & Lords is out for Windows 8. Unfortunately if you use your saved game from WP it does not unlock the achievements. Pretty damn stupid, but what can you do?

I SOOOO cannot wait to upgrade my phone. I would really like a Lumia 1020, but Sprint doesn't offer that. Course, we're switching from Sprint since they have a crap selection of Windows Phones. Just gotta decide which service to choose.

 

Thanks for the review of Spirit of Hero and all you do here Paul O:)

I hope that rumor that dev preview is getting 8.1 this month is true.

Will all your stats carry over? I'm a little confused. If you bring your save over, will the boss achievements unlock be simply replaying the final fight of each bosses 'campaign'? Wondering how that will unlock after you've already beaten the bosses in your game save.

I'm in the same boat but with T-Mobile I only have the 925 to look forward to.

If you load your cloud save it will be exactly as if you're playing your WP game. All buildings, stats, money, units will be there. However, the game will also list all your achievements as being unlocked, so there will be no way to unlock them again even by repeating the actions that were necessary to unlock them the first time around. Stupid Gameloft!

Wow that's pretty bad...thanks for the heads up. I may stay away from it just because of that issue.

I sent a message to Gameloft via the customer service link in the game. To add insult to injury the reply they sent me was in Russian. It did not address my question either.

I left Sprint. The price was right, but phone selection is meh. Also, Verizon is king in my area, so away I went. Not before sprint sent a letter that stated I roam too much, and I believe my unlimited plan only allows like 300mb per month. Peace see ya later, alligator.

I am digging hexic, and free!

I got my 1520 and it feels so damn nice to finally be caught up with everyone else on WP8. And the amount of space is fantastic. Although I kinda wanted to get a yellow phone, I ended up going with the 32GB model because I need as much space as possible. Good thing too 'cause I've already filled it up halfway with games!

Warning about the new "Xbox Live" game. It is a bad clone with no Xbox Live features, no copyright, or no contact information. However, it does have fake screenshots and description. Thanks WPCentral for the warning. This might be the one game that gets Microsoft to start looking into what games are released. I'm sure they will get a lot of requests for refunds.
