Im betting not a single Trial/Demo is released with all these new Summer Spotlight games either.

Hopefully, next months Rewards will have a decent offer for buying a few of them.

Oh, what an amazing coincidence.  The Reckoning DLC is out next week, too. I MUST TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS!!!

my kinect 2.0 died today, xbox support had a bunch of tips but in ended in asking for a 80 dollar repair, mentioned how much more I paid for the system than it costs now did not help the cause. RIP kinect 5/14-7/15

The Kinect is proving to be this Gens RRoD.  A number of people on the Xbox Preview Dashboard (including myself) who have run into problems with their Kinects going back several months after an Update.  Of course, in typical Microsoft fashion, they'll tell you an Update couldnt possibly be the reason, not even a litte bit!  Coincidence is a helluva thing :roll:

 

I've even pinpointed how and why mines doing it, with 100% replication success.

What's a smart way to play it to earn more achievements?  I really have no idea, I went thru the tutorial only to get Conker and was rather underwhelmed by the experience.

While using Premium to fully maximize returns:

Firstly - Grinding the Challenges: Daily Goals, Milestones (going from Tier 1 to 10) that will give the most Credits/XP in the shortest timeframe. You should (easily) aim to make 100-160k Credits, which you can then use to purchase a DLC pack, that has a 30-Day Premium attached with it (I went for Champions Quest Play Bundle). With Premium you can purchase things by just using the Credits earned, at a discount too.  However, without it, you'll also need Spark Tokens which are slower/harder to come by (or you'll have to pay for them). So best to go hard while you got it, thats the key. Everything Achievement related can be unlocked for free.

 

People have created their own levels, which will help grind even faster (example - Kill 250 enemies)

 

Secondly - By logging in everyday, you'll get 3 Golden tickets (instead of just 1 as a Non-premium user) and a Multiplier (starting from Sunday 1.5x, and climbing to 4.5x the following Saturday) to use for prizes in the Treasure Trove Match game (Extra Credits and Tokens).

Its best to play your tickets on the final day when the Multiplier is at its strongest.

 

Theres quite alot more info which can be found by searchng for grinding tips.

Maybe just me, but it was mediocre at best with imprecise controls.  But hey, free is free, so thanks for the heads up regardless :)

 

If anyone is new to Project Spark, though, I'm not sure it's worth having to play thru the tutorial just to get this content... 

Unless you are doing it for the Achievement grind (with alittle fun in between), now would be the perfect time to start with a 2x XP/Credit weekend (make that 4x if you've never done the tutorial before, as youre given a free, 3-Day Premium during, which stacks with the promo weekend).  It's very dooable to get nearly all the 2225GS if you play it smart.
