    I think technically The VideoKid should sneak on this list as it was released on August 31st. Took me about 2 hours to finish. Super basic game with only one level, but picking out all of the references while playing was fun. Definitely worth $5 if you ever played The Paperboy and/or like 80s movies/pop culture.

    I've gotta disagree. I still haven't reached the end while accumulating enough to buy everything but the last character so I think many people who buy it won't be able to get all the achievements. I do agree it is pretty fun though even if it lacks content

    It's definitely challenging but the game is pretty repetitive so once you learn how to get past a section you'll be ready for it the next time it pops up. There are some videos online of other people playing and I think watching someone else helps with learning how to get past sections you're struggling with. I don't want to take over this post with tips but I'm happy to provide some if anyone needs them.

    Second this,
    Not available in the UK :(

    Might make a list of easy completions that are from other countries and then do a region switch and buy everything all at once laugh

    Games under 2-3h should only give 50-100 GS and not 1000GS. With this amout of titles on xbox one, the achievement value / system is totaly broken and devaluted :( Terrible decision for me from MS.

    I don't play a lot of them, but it's the slang that a lot of people use to refer to Shoot 'Em Ups. So anything from Galaga to Cuphead to Geometry Wars, people will just say Shmup, but it's a Shoot 'Em Up game lol. :)

    Wow that sucks. The only thing I dont like about the ESRB is the Adults Only rating and their policies in the early 2000s about certain sexual content and violence that was fine in Europe.

    That jackass attorney in my state of Florida Jack Thompson wanted the ESRB to censor games like they do in Germany, Japan, Australia, etc etc and the ESRB said they wouldn't do that. The Florida Bar revoked his license.

    I used to think this but now I think it makes TA more relevant specifically your ratio.
    Happy Gaming

    I'm not bothered by that. What I am bothered by is the fact that it's $10 or more most of the time for these 0-4 hours games. I like increasing my GS, but not at that price. It almost feels like I am paying for GS and not a game. Which if Xbox or game develops ever go that route it will be the end of gaming.

    "Can't get that 1 achievement, just spend $5 and unlock it without having to put in the work or grind. " - said Activision and EA Games

    Now if these were $2-$3 games, then I could see spending the money for some easy GS. So i'll wait to see if these ever show up in sale and if they don't, not like i'll lose any sleep over never playing them.

    Anyone have any comments on Don't Sink? I'm a huge fan of Sid Meier's Pirates and it looks similar.

    Wouldn't that be bad for you then? Seeing as how you only have 5 completions, all of which are easy.
