In case you didn't notice...

...there is a little bit of new sexiness here. New pics, and a link to access the Windows 8 games directly.

Wouldn't Japanese Lists look more in place if the actual face buttons were the Japanese characters for those particular letters?

So instead of , , and , it will be the Japanese character for that particular letter.

But hey, these look a lot better than what they were before.

Actually it doesn't say the letters of the controller. After bring it up with Rx when I was designing them, it simple says 'Japanese'.

Creech and his minons sounds like either a security company or a bad 90s pop group. I like the latter personally. =p

How about 80's hair metal instead? "Minions" has that evil undertone that so many of those metal bands thought they were striving for that I think it might work better.

This. I'd mentioned it in the subscriber board but I was afraid to bring it up again... I'd also bring up the fact that the one is labelled WP7 when in fact it contains WP7 and WP8 games, but I don't want to be "That Guy"

We already have the graphic for the WP8 phone games, but the functionality to separate them out isn't a huge priority since there are so few WP8 exclusives at this point. It is coming.

Oh, wasn't aware, fair enough then, especially seeing as there's only 2 yet. Only problem then is that ugly vista logo...
