Wow, so I think my Ice Age Village is completely borked. I finally made it to a 5-star village, but instead of that achievement popping, it popped the achievement for the Not Extinct collection, which I don't have. Even worse, it's like it is constantly popping that achievement. You know the in-game window that pops up when you get an achievement? I have about 100 of those constantly popping up over each other. It makes my game run in slow motion and it crashes after about 30 seconds. I tried to submit the bug in game but I can't get through the process before it crashes. Anyone else heard of this? I'm hoping it gets fixed when (if) they release the fix for the social stuff. If not I guess I'm done with the game at 98G.

^Wow, that's weird. I'd say the game is worth $1, but hopefully if you pay for it, the upgrades come along much quicker.

Also, I believe I read somewhere that Shoot1Up is working for WP8 now.

At least I'll have a shit ton of $1 Angry Birds games to buy when I finally upgrade to WP8.

Risk has been around, but I believe Life and Parking Mania are new. Although when I click on them on my phone, they say "This app is not available for your device".

Monster Burner isn't too bad. The menus are really janky and slow (on WP7 anyway) but the actual gameplay is pretty smooth. The cost for upgrades really shoot up quick, and I assume the coin collection rate doesn't increase nearly as quickly, so they really push In-App purchases (which is fair). The game is 100% playable without any IAP's and I can't complain at all since it's free. I'll play through the full game and get all the achievements I can.

It's pretty fluid on WP8. I upgraded the multiple rebound but it doesn't seem to work. So I guess focus on fireball size first.

Mathematically Correct.

Yeah, it's weird. I'm not getting achievement pop ups but the achievements still appear on my gamercard.

Did you get any achievements? I noticed that with the Angry Birds games on WP8 that you need to get an achievement for the game to show up on your gamercard or to update and jump to the top of your games list.

Edit: Yup, I just double checked Xbox.com and the game is on my list.

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.

Awesome, all over SMB2. Like you, I somewhat enjoyed the first one, even though it got shit on pretty badly by most.

SMB2....might give this one a go for a dollar. I think it has multiplayer too?

Angry Birds Rio for a dollar may be mine as well. Shoot, I own all the other angry birds.

I am getting more excited for next Tuesday and have high hopes they drop the curtains and show off the next xbox and all the little details that may include WP and W8. :bouncy:

Super Monkey Ball 2 only has local multiplayer on Windows Phone.

MetalMegaGio, sounds like you need to reinstall the game. That shouldn't be happening.

That's still fewer than the number of typos in the game itself. :p

I'm quickly tiring of Monster Burner. Even using the date trick to get more coins, progress is ridiculously slow. Guess I just don't have patience to sit and play through the same levels throwing things at other things. Probably why I was never an Angry Birds fan.

Thanks! It worked and now whenever I complete levels it gives me the coins.

Ditto. I'm glad I got it for free.

Holy awesome! Well, so much for never spending more than $5 on a mobile game. As a huge Mass Effect fan (just finished my 7th playthrough of the first game), I have to have it. The others look pretty good too. What a week! That is assuming you have the right combination of OS and handset manufacturer.

Yep, it's showing as $2.99 for me. Great price for that game. I got it for $5 and don't regret it. Just be aware that it has never been updated, meaning it won't run in the background. If you lock your phone mid battle it will reset the game when you return, forcing you to start at the last save point. At least that's how it worked the last time I played it. This may be a deal breaker for some, as the later battles can get long.

Edit: Just downloaded the game on my L920 and can confirm this is still the way it works. No running under lock screen, no fast app switching mid battle.

I'm also seeing da Vinci pinball at 1$. This was 3$ before I believe not 100$ on that.
