    Well, I guess I have no excuse to finish up RF: Guerrilla now...except for the fact that boosting the MP still has me full of the rage...angry
    Fully loaded, safety off. This here is a recipe for unpleasantness.

    I have Volgarr on my Steam wish list, so this is good news for me. I guess I can trade in my VP:TiP disc at Gamestop for $0.20.

    I don't want to whine on free games... but I'll do it a little bit anyway wink

    Not too convinced of all these new-gen retro games... I don't get it. I would prefer a launch title of XOne.
    Viva Pinata... I've done the first one, I liked it, but I really don't want to play that kind of game anymore. I guess some are happy.

    OH MY GOD YEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!! NOW I CAN FIND PEOPLE TO BOOST RED FACTION WITH!!! headspin

    Anyway, It's good to see Volition ( Creators of Saints Row) release two game for games with gold already.

    Maybe I'll make a Viva Pinata session for those annoying online achievements.Great 360 games though if you haven't played them.

    Just a heads up. Red Faction is a great game but it's a GRIND in the MP and campaign sense. It takes a while to 100% it. I just did it all and the completing all Guerrilla actions carries a very high ratio...and for a reason. Great game but a challenge for the truly committed.

    For anyone getting Viva Pinata and has a vision cam and an apple device i would suggest this.
    JamP0und Viva Piñata: Trouble In Paradise Master Card Sharp JamP0und's solution for the Master Card Sharp Achievement in Viva Piñata: Trouble In ParadiseUse 10 different Piñata Cards

    There's an app that lets you scan any pinata or object intothe game making the completion extremely easy and quick.

    Maybe those devs were five when they wanted to make the game?
    Maybe do to having higher amounts of memory on these systems these games only look like they're retro but couldn't actually be possible on older systems?
    Um... Shut up and let me get achievements?

    Pick one.

    Not interested but I still haven't started the free games from at least the last 3 months, so it doesn't matter.

The game easily takes more than 100 hours to compete. And yes, the MP is a horrible, horrible grind. Unless you are VERY commited, don't think you're gonna 100% Red Faction.

    Well, I guess its official, 3 GwG games is now the new four games cry

    Hmmm, old skool side scrolling platformer with no save feature ?? I think I'll stay silver this month and dust off the ol' SNES for a few minutes of Magic Sword, so I can be grateful for how far we have come from that level of frustration...
    Your financial solution

    Right? Why do people act like just because they don't like or "get" something, it shouldn't be. Clearly there's a market. Just take your free game.

    Anyway, 100%'d the two Xbox 360 games a while ago. Both great. Don't let an admittedly grindy-yet-easy multiplayer put you off of Red Faction. It's fun, too. There'll even be an online community for at least a little while. Go play legit.

    As for Volgarr...I'll "buy" it, but not sure I'm gonna play it. I don't like older-style games and especially not really difficult ones. That achievement list, too. Yikes.

    I'll pass on these. Played the trial for that specific Red Faction game and played some Viva Piñata at some point. Both were pretty meh.


    Oh well, have fun with these!
    My teeth taste funny today. They seem more jagged than normal.
