#12781204 Windows Phone & Windows 8 Deal Thread

Posted by bob101910 on 02 July 2015 - 04:09 PM

Game Troopers has a lot more games planned and want to add more achievements to previous titles. They are also offering to publish games for smaller developers (which hopefully means more achievements).

Their games usually have some big problems at launch, but they get a few updates within a couple weeks. I'm hoping smaller developers take advantage of their offer. With all the stolen games on the marketplace now, you need a way to get your game to stand out even if it means shares profit with Game Troopers.

EDIT: Looking at their website, they can also port your game to Windows/Windows Phone. I wonder how much they would charge for that or if they'd just take a percentage of money earned. If i could get achievements for my RPG and have it ported to WP, they could take all the money.

Hardest not unobtainable achievement on 360 is Godlike in Shadowrun.

 

Lol yea, there was no fucking way I was going to pull that off legit. Glad me and my boy was able to boost with some randoms. Loved that game though, was my favorite MP game of 2007

Yeah hard to get without boosting, but easy achievement because it takes a few minutes of boosting to unlock. After getting all the others without boosting, already knew this one required it.

 

I'm 7

Congrats to the winners and thanks to FucktardJr. for hosting the contest. I was so sad when NBA bling didn't go on sale tonight, but FucktardJr. made it all better.

I bought GTA IV over the weekend but via PC. My PayPal got charged rather than my MS credit. After talking to customer service, they'll refund the $4 and said that the credit gets charged only when I make purchases through the console. Just an FYI if you didn't already know.

So that means that if you have MS credit on your account and want to use it to buy bc games for your xbone, you're out of luck unless you have a 360 and buy through it. I have a feeling MS will add a 360 marketplace to the xbone.

 

 

I just noticed this last night as well. Tried buying GTA SA from my computer and there was no way to select the funds in my account, just my credit card.

I recommend everybody read this if you haven't already.

Man, it's so worth $20. It's gorgeous, addictive, the platforming is spot on and the controls are perfect. Obviously I wouldn't suggest buying anything a week or so away from an ultimate sale, but if it doesn't go on sale, just do yourself a favor and buy it anyway.


I agree. $20 for goty is a steal.

Amazon has the exclusive rights to all FX shows. They have the first two seasons of The Americans on Prime. I'm sure season 3 will be added soon.


Shhh Don't tell Amazon about the FX shows on Netflix. I like watching them.

i don't see destiny too different from other mmo with monthly subscription. they try to make the game free without monthly subscription, but instead are just slowly pushing dlcs in the form of expansion packs to get more money every few months.


Monthly MMOs have tons more content. They would be able to get away with it if there were no other MMOs offering way more content for less price.

This video shows why I am loving ESO. It wasn't until I unlocked PVP that I really started enjoying it.

The link should skip to our last stand in an outpost (about 17 defending against 40+) that we've been holding for the previous 2 hours. They finally overwhelm us, but we went down swinging. About 2 hours later we took the outpost back after successfully defending several counter attacks on our nearest castle. I didn't get to sleep until 8am

https://youtu.be/9075aPPvRXI?t=35m24s

After that 5 hour battle, I ended up at 26 on our faction's leaderboard. I only knew 1 person in that group before we started. Now we're all in a guild. We all share hatred for Ebon Heart.

Payday 2 online is still broken for me. Menus just freeze up before I even select a mission. Patch on the way, supposedly.


Wait a few seconds and you can pick a level. Hurry before it locks up again. From there you can select a level without the freezing.

Just an FYI there is currently a loophole where you can download 360 games without the Beta. You have to have a friend who is in it and has played one of the BC games. Go to that popular with friends section on the dash and go through the games until you see a 360 game, click on it and it will have an option to "View In Store". If you own it you can install it.

I did it and installed Mass Effect, Geometry Wars and Banjo Tooie. None of my friends have played any of the other games yet.

If you own those 3 and want to download them you can just add me on XBone GT is Stevo cbk24. I launched each of them so they will show up in popular with friends.

I just need to find people who have played the other games lol

This goes for everyone lol


Still a little risky. If you aren't in dashboard preview, you won't have the most up to date console update.

I read a comparison of Mass Effect on 360 vs. X1. I was surprised that the game ran significantly better on X1. Better frame rate, less pop ins, shorter loading, shorter cutscenes (because they run smoother), etc.

Of course not all games will show an improvement, but it is making me hopeful for the future. EDF 2025 without frames dropping to a crawl would be amazing.

This place has gotten off topic but since we are I just thought I would stick up for the Kinect for XB1.  Ya its a massive disappointment both with lack of support and functionality... but!  The most mazing thing that people don't mention is, I can turn my TV, Receiver, DirecTV and Xbox all on by simply saying Xbox On.  I can turn off all devices with just Xbox turn off, yes.  That to me is worth the price of admission.  Anyone else appreciate that feature?


Xbox One Kinect is great. Most people that hate on it haven't used it. Kinect 2.0 is not the same as the first. You don't even have to yell at it, but a lot of my friends still do. At least they use. I think everybody I play with that has a Kinect uses it. I use it for every single game I play to record clips or take screenshots.

However it does have issues with properly understanding strong accents though. Hopefully they can fix that eventually.

Sony already has BC and they charge money to use it

If adding the most request feature is just a smokescreen, then it is a damn good one
