I tried all through the holiday break but I could not upgrade my old Win 7 laptop to Win 10 so I could take advantage of the $0.10 deals.

I had the same issue.  Took my old Dell E1505 almost 24 hours idling on the Windows Update screen to initiate the W10 upgrade.  Finally finished the upgrade and grabbed almost all the games I wanted.  Unfortunately I missed the timed Halo Spartan game sale.

Good looking out. Also, Lines the Game is showing up free as well already so I grabbed it too.

FYI, there will be two more games made free for a day following these two.  Too bad I bought these two on sale for black friday.  

 

New free Gametroopers game called Elements is out for WP.

Hmm. Carrier specific maybe? I'm on T-Mobile if that means anything. Game Troopers actually has a decent free collection (at least on my phone).

Edit: Briquid is the only P2P right now on my phone. ...which is tempting because it looks fun. For now I'm stuck playing Equalicious though. Basic math puzzles but they get fairly challenging.

Lumia 920 is down to $19.99 refurb at GS.

 

EDIT: Surface Pro 1 128GB is $100.

They don't appear to be.  Just took a break for the holidays, unless the blog posts weren't properly tagged.

That's a big no-no as far as Microsoft is concerned. I expect a title update to correct the issue.

As you guys may have already noticed, that achievement was removed and replaced with one that requires you to play the game seven days in a row.  Before updating my game, I went ahead and spent a dollar on the achievement to see what would happen after updating.  I was curious to see if I would possibly end up with an extra achievement, but in the updated game and on Xbox Live, it just shows up as the 7-day achievement.  Not sure if anyone cares, but I figured I would share my experience.

I love that Rocket RIot has 1000 Gamerscore.  Anybody know any other Windows Phone games with 1000G or is this a new thing?  I know it has to do with cross-platform play with Windows 10, but I don't see any others like it.

 

I just upgraded from a Nokia Lumia 925 to a Microsoft Lumia 950 so I'm on board with the Windows Mobile ship until it sinks completely.

All the UWP are doing it (Rocket Riot, Microsoft Solitaire Collection and 2020 My Country are the only ones that I know off, so far)

 

I'm also sinking with the WP ship, currently rocking the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL and in a year or so I will go with the HP Elite x3

Wow!  I just wanted to say it's great to see this thread resurrected.

 

I also recently purchased a L950 to sink with the ship!

Nice to see this thread alive.  I am also going down with the ship.  1520 runs Win 10 surprising well.  I considered a 950XL or 950 from the Microsoft store sale this week, but they sold out pretty fast.  I will get a 950XL probably if my 1520 dies.  Here is hoping Surface Phone actually....surfaces in 2017. :)

I picked up the Alcatel Idol 4S on release day, and it's a really nice phone. I use my phone for communication primarily and that is it. Rarely for apps or anything else so even though the app store should be better, it doesn't really bother me. I believe they are working on the ability to port android applications over directly to windows mobile, which would be an amazing accomplishment. As a network administrator running a hybrid exchange environment I like the built in office suite. I think it runs way better than outlook on apple or android platforms. Nice to see there is a thread for windows mobile, didn't even know CAG had one.

Wow! Great to see so much activity and enthusiasm in this thread. Let's Make Windows Phone Thread Great Again!

 

I just got a Lumia 950 this month, so I too am going down with the sinking ship. I've had a WP 7, WP 8, and now WP 10.

I ditched my Windows Phone years ago, but I had a lot of fun earning achievements on it back in the day. Bet I had about 100 XBL enabled games.

Anybody actually good at the Twins game? I can't get past 900-1000 score before the level just switches from manageable to insanely difficult.

I am under the impression that oxenfree does have achievements for W10.

I've gotten to 2000 on that game, but the two score achievements are just glitched for me.  I've tried on two different phones and no pop
