Grabbed the WPCentral app. Thanks EastX.

My phone was acting up this morning, randomly shutting off. Seems to be fixed now, but definitely gave me a scare.

Downloaded the app along with Pirate Cat and that candy sports game since they were free. Only non live games I'll get are free ones sadly.

Excellent, will be grabbing it shortly. It will even be awarding Avatar Awards soon! :D

MontstaFish doesn't appear to be on the market yet.

Avatar Awards! Def gonna try this one out and see if I like it, it's definitely a fair price and I've seen good things on it here.

Also, this was pulled from the comments from the latest WP7 article about the game:

Hi guys,
In the next few days we are going to announce the full feature set of the first Title Update, coming soon.
To get the hat, if you previously played tha game and made those 15 gold medals, you just have to start the game. It is awarded retroactively.
For the slippers, you'll need to 'win an Xbox LIVE Challenge against a friend'. Xbox LIVE Challenges are a new multiplayer game mode that is added by the upcoming update, and winning one is not hard at all, especially if you have a friend willing to lose a challenge ;)

About those slippers being different... that's apparently a technical restriction. Shoes and other feet accessories are always differentiated by gender, even if they look exactly the same. So go ahead and wear those female slippers on your male avatar. No one will notice :P


Dev seems to be cool as hell, and the update should be here in the coming weeks.

Interesting, I don't believe anyone on my friends list currently has a Windows Phone though sadly, so for the slippers I'll have to see if I can add somebody from here who has/is getting the game, and if more games start involving multiplayer/leaderboards come out all the better!

^Feel free to add me if you'd like, I'd definitely be willing to go through getting the slippers with you.

Also, MonstaFish is now up. I'm demo'ing it now, but I'm sure I'll buy it for $0.99.

Chickens Can't Fly seems to be pretty great, I really enjoyed the tutorial levels and quickly bought the game.

MonstaFish doesn't seem too bad, there are at least 3 different modes (only 2 available in the demo) but they were pretty different and both ok, so I think it's easily justifiable for $1. Plus, I want to support this price point.

lol I ended up buying both CCF and Monstafish this morning, I played the free/non-Live version of CCF awhile back and it was great, and Monstafish is only a dollar.

I gotta agree with your impressions of MonstaFish. I enjoyed Fish Hook a lot more in the demo then MonstaFish, and I don't know about swiping snails in Fish Tank, but I know the swiping on the main menu doesn't work very well, for me anyway.

For some reason MS sent me another Windows Phone Skateboard Avatar Code. No idea why, but here it is if anyone wants it:

^Too bad. I figured here would be a good place to post it because I wouldn't expect there to be that many lurkers.

I hope the lurker at least has a WP. :D. My wife may have a code. I'll check to see if she used it. Pm me.

So I bought chickens, and will probably get monstafish. Seems ok for a dollar. I wonder what we have in store next week!?

Btw-am I the only one who randomly checks live WP games to see if any games got a random drop?

I used to, and actually stumbled on a couple. But there's an app called Marketplace Deals which does that, so I usually just check that now.

Ya, it seems to pick up the deals pretty quickly.

Also, Chicken's Can't Fly is awesome! I understand why it's in EastX's top 5 from a few weeks ago.

Yeah, I saw this, that's awesome. I'm definitely jealous.

Also, is the Chicken's Can't Fly avatar update live? In dressing my avatar right now, I saw Chickens Can't Fly in my list of games with awards. I don't have 15 gold trophies yet, so I don't know if they are in there yet or not.

I'm hoping for some exclusive deals/contracts for games on WP7 to be announced next week. Maybe get some of the more popular games that have been available for iPhone and Android (Game Dev Story, Scribblenauts Remix, etc.). And it might actually be cool to get Minecraft. I'm not a big fan of it, but I would be much more likely to play if I could build stuff while running errands or waiting at the doctor's office.

But most of all, I would love to hear Microsoft say that they are ditching Metro for the Xbox. I know it won't happen, but it would make me absolutely giddy to go back to NXE (preferably circa 2009).

I turned my Samsung Focus on yesterday for the first time in months. I had 22 game updates waiting for me. :hot: The thing got stuck at 14 updates remaining. Gave me an error that I'd run out of memory. So, I deleted a couple games I'll never go back to and got things going again.

This hasn't happened to me yet, but it sounds like it's a problem MS needs to straighten out.

I'm pretty sure everyone else who had this problem hasn't had too much problem getting a refund, so you may want to call. I know I would for $2, just think you could grab Angry Birds and Max/Magic Marker for that! :)

Haha, I could indeed get two more games with that! (already have Angry Birds but I'd find something :P) At least I use a prepaid card for the phone, since last time my main debit card had a double charge I had to tell my bank what happened as well, I'll see if I can make some time later and give them a call I suppose. On the bright side Chicken's Can't fly is a great game! I spent way too much time on one level going for a gold medal though, although I saw eastx say the same thing in his review.
