  1. Hi... sorry for the late reply. I don't frequent this site as much as I used to (which seems to be a lot of people right now). I don't really know what you mean, as I don't know the site as well as you do, it seems. I'm talking about the area where you go, to find games and achievement guides & road maps, etc. If I knew what to change, AND had the access to do it (I guess I would have to be given "restricted access")... I would gladly do it (as I could get to it), for free. I'm working from home (and this was the case BEFORE the COVID outbreak), and there are times when I have a lot of free time (and when I just don't feel like playing games). Oddly enough, I prefer working to playing games. I only play games to unwind (which is why I don't do too much multiplayer stuff... that stresses me out!). Anyway, I'm sure I would have to have a long talk with someone, BEFORE I might be allowed to fix broken links... but "OBVIOUSLY"... if I did anything I wasn't supposed to do, with malicious intent... an immediate and permanent ban would be placed on my account, and probably block access from my IP address. I've had some problems on here in the past, but I've been "watching it" and behaving (just ask blakgravy... we've talked quite a bit about my past on here). Anyway, if it'll be an absolute no... then I'll see if there's another way to get in touch with members who are still active on here with guides, and see if I can't find a way to let them know the site change broke some links. Hopefully, we can find a way to fix some of these issues without putting too much burden on the staff to do it! 🙂
  2. Are you guys serious? You can't even download the modules you once downloaded before? You SHOULD be able to do it from your download history, NOT looking for the content in the store/dashboard of the games store of the Xbox 360. I believe I have EVERY module they released, still on my hard drive (though I only ever bought one game, "Tutankham" - which I just played for a little over an hour, and got that 'My Blisters have Blisters!' achievement... I posted about it under that thread for that one achievement). I'd take a look at your download history, to see if you can find those modules. Oh... don't scroll too fast through your download history (using the triggers). Whenever I did that, it always seemed to crash the download history, and I would have to back-out and start over. Also, you don't want to skip-over the files you are looking for! Good luck, and let me know if you are able to find and redownload your Game Room modules, AND play the full version of the games you paid for!!!
  3. Unfortunately, I only ever bought one game for Game Room: Tutankham. This was my favorite game to play in the arcades, back in the day. Had I known the servers would go offline, the games could not be purchased anymore, etc.... I would have spent enough money on a few games, to complete the achievements. That said, I "just" got the 'My Blisters have Blisters!' achievement. I never looked-up this thread before, to see how it might be done... because Tutankham (at default settings, or "ranked", which probably doesn't allow for it) has limited lives, then the game ends (I also forgot about the time-rewind feature). Anyway, for a long time... I had only 195gs in Game Room. I was just playing the game, just to play it... but I saw I could change the amount of lives to "Infinite" lives, so I did... and just played the game for about an hour (I didn't even keep track of the time, because I didn't know how long I was going to actually play - especially since it was 1:00 AM). At one point, I was thirsty, and was just about to get up and go get a drink... and this achievement popped!! I looked at the time, and it was just after 2:00 AM... so I had been playing for an hour (which was actually less time than I had done on this game in one sitting, back in the arcade in the 80's - I put a LOT of quarters into this game back then). If anyone is still thinking of trying for this achievement... just see if you have a game that can be set to "infinite" lives, and just play for an hour. Hopefully, you have a game you actually enjoy enough to play for that long! Incidentally... I got to level 12 (or 3 full playthroughs, of the 4 levels) in Tutankham, before I finally stopped (well after I got the achievement). I think the best I ever did in the arcade was 6 levels. It's pretty hard with only 3 or 4 lives, by default!! I'm at an even 200gs in Game Room, now. I'm not sure I want to bother with the other 80gs I could try for, assuming they would still unlock... since playing for over an hour, kind of filled my desire to play Tutankham for quite a while...! 😉
  4. How many of you have tried or are using "Dark Mode" on this web site? What issues do you have with it, such as some text being hard to read... to some being completely unreadable, unless you switch back to "Blind my eyes at night, Mode!"??? There's also a poll, so please vote on it (it's mostly to gauge what percentage of users - at least those who take the poll, use Dark Mode).
  5. I don't know if it's as simple as correcting an URL, but ALL the images in the "Dead Space" achievement guide are linked to the old web site name ( ending in .org), and no images are shown. There are probably a LOT of achievement guides affected by the domain-name change. Assuming it's as simple as updating the link... there are probably hundreds (maybe thousands?!!) of these broken links like this. Is anyone on staff, tackling this on a regular / semi-regular basis? I understand that if they are... Dead Space is fairly far down the list alphabetically, and will be gotten around to eventually. Actually... a request of the original poster's of these guides to update the links might make the job easier for the staff (at least for any guide makers who haven't since been banned)! Toasty411 (also his gamertag) did Dead Space. I reached out to him already on Xbox, but he hasn't been on in a few days... so I'll let you know if I get in touch with him!
  6. Okay... so I don't know what the differences are between these two versions (is one Canadian???)... but I clicked on the one that is NOT the (CN) version, but it keeps bringing me to this one that has (CN) near the top of this forum. I tried clicking on the one that IS supposed to be the CN version... and I get an error. Can someone look into this?! Oh... if this issue gets fixed... PLEASE feel free to delete this thread (I don't care about forum post counts)!
  7. No, it isn't necessary. I did create a new thread about it, as the direct tie-in is pretty awesome. If you haven't played it... you really should. It could actually use a guide (it would just be a G&R, since there are no achievements), but it would be helpful. I had to look-up online for hints, as I got stuck in a couple of places.
  8. Okay... if you haven't played this before, it will be offered as an option before you start playing Episode 2. DEFINITELY download it and play it before you continue. There are no achievements, as it IS just a demo... but the last scene before the closing credits will have an awesome moment you won't want to miss. Also, the story is pretty good!
  9. I'm just starting Episode 2, and there's a pop-up message about playing "Captain Spirit" before Episode 2. Can you add some details about this to the guide, so people will know it was a demo released about 3 months before this game... and has ties to the story and characters from "Life is Strange 2" (or maybe I just did?)! I'm going to play it... I just hope it isn't a LONG side-story. <edit> It took me to the Microsoft Store, and is downloading "The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit." It's 4.69gb, pretty significant for what sounded like a 15 minute side mission. It's a free demo that was released about 3 months before this game (which I don't remember hearing about, otherwise... I would have checked it out). Fans of this game will probably want to NOT skip it
  10. Hey... sorry I hadn't played this sooner, for the sake of answering this question (since he didn't really explain it in the video). Wait until the moment the screen changes color, when the game gives you control of your character. If you do it too soon or keep jabbing the button... it seems to fail. When you hit the at the right moment, it seems to work every time. Make sure you "hold" the button when you DO press it, but not before the screen changes color... as that seemed to work for me. Geez... I probably spent 20 minutes figuring out that timing for the button. Obviously, I still got the whole game finished under an hour - NOT, LOL!! Please let me know if my tip helps. As much as I use these web sites to further "my" achievements... it's almost as important to me, to take the time to help others do the same!! OP... thanks for giving future users of your guide a heads-up about that one achievement. I laughed out loud, when I saw you up the possible number of attempts to do that one achievement. My attempts was probably around 50 or 60, and a night dreaming I was doing it for real!!
  11. Yes, this is a tricky one. I'll tip my hat to anyone (who hasn't played it before) who can prove they completed the ENTIRE game in an hour or less. Good luck!!!
  12. Hey... I hate to bug you with stuff during the COVID-19 situation, but I was hoping you could pass along a suggestion (because I really don't know where to direct this). Can someone add the page buttons to the "top" of game listings for categories that have more than one page (like games under the "T" section). It's a real pain to have to scroll-down or jump to the bottom of a page, when you know when selecting "T" that you'll want to go to the 3rd page, for example. Also (if it wouldn't be too hard), that each button had the first 3 to 5 letters for the name in the box, so you would know whether you needed to go to the next page, or just to the bottom.

  13. If you like your controls inverted, you will need to switch the "Y-axis" to yes for this game in the game settings. Another case of a stupid game developer not having the game read the settings from your Xbox profile (this happens with a number of games from smaller studios... that, or someone just totally overlooked it)! BTW... you CAN change your settings in the game after you've started playing. You have to "save" your game first, then quit your game... so you CAN go change your settings as needed (it's just that you can't do it while in game-play)!!!
  14. It's actually a giant's leg, not an arm. Excellent guide, though... and a properly done roadmap - a lesson for everyone else!
