My gf just got a HTC Surround, I was wondering:

is it was possible to sign in on my LIVE account on her phone to play her games? we don't know how to switch profiles...

(achievement whore here, lol)


Sadly, no. You can only have one Live profile tied to a phone at a time.
You should get a WP7 phone too though!

I didn't realize you ran the wpcentral site eastx. I love it!!! It's pretty much my source for wp7 news.

I only got Rocket Riot so far. It was on my to get list since I tried the demo. Good stuff.

Glad you like the site! WPCentral definitely is the best overall source of WP7 news. I'm just a writer, but I'm working hard to make sure we have the best and most interesting gaming news. It's a ton of fun trying to squeeze info out of developers.

Eastx- does that mean you have some 'insider' infor on why Verizon is sucking so badly (meaning-screwing with the release of win7 phones).. If you cannot tell, i hold resentments towards Verizon for not releasing the Trophy yet, and the only other carrier that works in my area well is Sprint. :( Like I said before I even tried Tmobile for the HD7...

I finally decided to pick up Hexic for $2. I'm not really a fan of the game, but I can't say no to a $2 game. :)

Anything over $2, I have to actually want it. ;)

For me it seems to be anything under $5 and I'll just about buy anything. There are a few games I tried the demo for, didn't especially like, but bought anyways because it was only $3. I don't do that for $5 games.

I really don't care for puzzle games and wouldn't have bought Hexic for even $3. $2 did push me over the edge. :)

A new review!

EastX's Butterfly review

It's probably the easiest WP7 game with which to earn all 200 Gamerscore... Pretty boring though.

They're late announcing it. I'll post it when we know (which may be after midnight).

If all the past sales are any indication, it will probably be a launch title.

Wasn't Fable Coin Golf going to be 2.99. I was under that impression for some reason, so seeing it at the app store for 4.99 is kinda a downer.

Also, I don't know what the DOTW is, but wasn't Need for Speed always 6.99? It's now 4.99. Is that it?

I just bought Need For Speed two weeks ago for $4.99, so I don't think that's it.

I announced Fable Coin Golf's price in this very thread. It was always announced at $5. NFS launched at $5 too.

The DotW is Glow Artisan! Will update the thread later.

Here we go! The first Deal of the Week that I've actually bought (I already owned Battle for Hoth (belch) and Rocket Riot).

WP7 Deal of the Week

I've only played it a little bit, but it seems very polished. Anybody who likes puzzle games or even art should give it a shot.

Thanks eastx, I picked up Glow Artisan. I tried it when it dropped to $2.99 and I enjoyed it, glad I waited now.

I had the demo on my phone already. I opened the demo this morning and clicked the "Buy" button and it showed up $1.99.

Strange.

I just now went back to Marketplace -> Apps -> Deal of the Week -> Glow Artisan and it's still showing up at $2.99. I clicked "buy" and it's wanted me to confirm it for $2.99.

I know it's only a buck, but this is weird!

Def picking up Glow Artisan.

BTW EastX I was messing around with the emulator today. You sure you can't use it for your reviews? (Nothing wrong with them just might help show gameplay better :) )

I had to pass on Hexic...absolutely a chore to control with my big hands.

Have you tried accessing the buy option via the demo (like I did)?

I installed the demo and clicked on purchase full game, but it was still showing at $2.99.

I went back into the game and clicked on purchase full game about three times over the past half an hour, and it just now showed up at $1.99. Purchase! FINALLY!! :)

Weird. Are you with AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint? Maybe the carrier affects the delay?

Nobody. I'm just using it with wi-fi; basically using it like an iTouch. So maybe that's it. I have a Dell Venue Pro.

I also just now received a notice that there's an update for the phone, so maybe that also had something to do with it.
