    Völgarr is so God damn hard, the ratio for that 'Die less than 10 times' achievement will be through the roof. This is NES 'Ghosts 'n Goblins' levels of difficulty we're talking about.

    Eh, kind of a let down this month. Maybe I'll pick up Viva Piñata but that's about it.

    Forget the vision cam achievements, this achievement can be quite a bad one. Hardly any sessions go up for this achievement either.

    I did recommend this for Viral month but it's technically not viral because the player has to still have the famous pinata and put it in your garden.

    oh god, I remember the RFG grind back in the dark days of the THQ bankruptcy, when everyone was scrambling because nobody was sure what games would have their MP survive. The 100,000 Points one was mind-numbing, Mad Genius was a colossal pain in the ass, and 250 RANKED wins... my brain has blocked it out. Good freakin' luck for anyone that wants to get the MP on this one.

    ...
    On Xbox One buying from a different market is a lot easier. This is because games are not region locked like on 360. For example I pre-ordered Destiny on Xbox One through online purchased gift card in dollars, but when I found out about the digital upgrade offer on 360 I wanted to buy that instead. After I cancelled my pre order the $60 was added to my account. Then when I wanted to buy the 360 version I HAD to pay in € because the 360 IS region-locked.

    Also I have Super-Time-Force which was free a short time ago, and a friend of mine who's x1 is on The Netherlands (the country in which I live) couldn't download it because he had it on NL instead of the USA,

    All I'm saying is, can the Kinect really not serve as a vision camera proxy? lol I mean what the hell does that camera do that the kinect can't?

    All in all I'm happy with these free games on the 360 and hesitant but hopeful about the X1 game.

    Yurgh. I hated Guerilla. Enjoy grinding the dead multiplayer. You would think the 360 games could be *a little* more current. facepalm

    What the hell is all this shit? Where are all the good games. Microsoft are too cheap and skinny to put a decent game up. I would be happy with a NFS or Valve game or even a game like Rage or Brink but no, we get this crap. Games with gold are pathetic at the moment. I haven't downloaded one since Charlie Murder and Dishonored. They were good.

    Actually Flopsy people on the solution for it still offer help, also they don't need to put it in your garden they just have to unbox it in theirs with you in the game and it will still unlock the achievement. That's how I did it mate.

    Really quite pleased to see VP:TiP get a showing on GwG. Makes a real change from all the mindless shooting, that is for sure. Of course, then we can get back to mindless shooting again the in the following game with Red Faction. Still, I'll give that a blast too.

    Look at me so I can finish!

    I never got to play Red Faction's multiplayer because it has been dead for years, so I'm looking forward to a boost in its population.
