    So, in short, you can get a game and write 'Wanker' in it...
    In short you can get a game about forming words from the dictionary from interconnecting tiles containing letters on them. Wanker happens to be a word in dictionaries.
    It can be in the dictionary all it wants; given the connotation of the word you'd think Microsoft would be more selective about the screenshots it releases is what people are saying :P

    Hoping these are released close enough to the 26th October than I can be a cheapskate and play them all on the developer preview. If the full versions are even released on the preview!

    I am confused, are wankers common on that game?

    According to us Australians it is. We use it all the time. To say hello, goodbye, a friendly word to people who pull out in front of you and to the person that ran over your cat.

    Also Marcus and wanker seem to go hand in hand.

    Pity that Zen Studios doesn't bring Pinball FX2 to Games for Windows LIVE for the non Win8 users. I just installed Win7 64 bit 3 months ago. Guess I'll keep playing it on Xbox360.

    Great Pinball games don't come free. For me it costs 0,41€ per table.

    Pinball is already available, the game is free and for now only the mars table can be played for 2 achievements out of the total 14. Wordament is also free and already released but doesn't have achievements at the moment.

    Wordament does have achievements, but they are tied to the Windows Phone version atm

    Achievement did not unlock I have the 5 magnetic achievement on Xbox but not on PC after going for it and waiting for the unlock after doing the requirements.

    I feel a need to point out that the table in the screenshots is Sorcerer's Lair. Sorcerer's Apprentice is a Mickey Mouse cartoon (one of the best parts of each Fantasia movie, incidentally). =P

    Windows 8 will crash and burn the way Vista did. Removing functionality and changing the interface so much from what people are used to is never a good thing. warning

    Was I the only person who got the reference for the name "Black Snapper" if so I must respond with..."STOOPID! YOU'RE SO STOOPID!!!"

    Good times.
