Thanks man. I actually have the next 3 articles mapped out, with Parts 4 and 5 90% written. (Each one can only be a certain length if I want people to read them all the way through.) Game saves falls into Part 5.

Congratz, Paul. I already tweeted it to some people at Microsoft.

By the way, your suggestion at User Voice reached more than 1400 votes! Maybe it could get 2000 soon

My conspiracy theory is the free Assassin's Creed and Earthworm Jim free "fiasco" was planned to take away the focus from this weeks no release and give people something to play if they haven't purchased them before. Hey, one can dream.

Good theory man. Mine is that some retard somewhere along the spectrum of things pushed a button he was not supposed to, making the games free accidentally, and ultimately got fired for doing so. Microsoft used him as an example for others thinking of pushing the big red button.

No new Xbox Windows Phone release, so let's look at games that SHOULD be made

Not a bad list, but nowhere near exhaustive either. Personally, I would love to see Settlers of Catan make it to my mobile device. I've got it on the console, but I'd really like to be able to take it with me.

Thanks dude. Microsoft isn't the publisher of Catan. The list is just made of existing Microsoft-published games. I agree that Catan would be great though, as long as the devs didn't go grinding-crazy like Carcassonne's.

"Connect 4 (Nokia Only) - S 2.9/5 - AD 3/10 - HRs 6 to 8 - £2.29"

This still needs to be updated to $0.99 on the front page. I was going through my Nokia phone and forgot the price for that changed. Is there any other Nokia games that are $0.99?

Picnic Wars has an update and 200g is now possible WooHoo

If like me you already had the 195g it unlocks as soon as you visit the achievement menu within the game (or that's how I got it to pop)

Can finally uninstall this now

Woot. As much as I like Picnic wars, it is just too easy and has negative replay value. Good while it lasted though.

Damn that is pretty cool. REALLY tempted to buy it since I don't have Bejeweled on my new phone yet lol...

Still messing around with the 2 Angry Birds games for now so I guess I'll wait.

update for ibomber defense. I actually thought it was taken off the marketplace, but it us there now, even on wp8 so maybe it is just back up.

update was 70+mb but can't tell what it didn't. Maybe it fixed the glitches cheeves that didn't stack right for all the difficulties. It sure didn't fix the unbearable lag when using the fast forward button.

Hey Arsenic, I just used your guide to buy WWTBAM UK (THANKS!) and I have a quick question.

You mention that "YOU CAN EVEN PLAY THE GAME AND EARN ACHIEVEMENTS AFTER YOU SET YOUR REGION BACK."

But StarsRPD says "Keep phone in UK region & time settings while completing the game (if you switch region achievements won't unlock)"

So who is right? lol... I'd like to know before starting the game if I should switch back or not. Thanks in advance for the help!

P.S. Is Real Soccer/Football worth getting too?
