    If they simply had more games for these platforms, they wouldn't have to discount the same ones as often as they do. Or more new games anyways.

    Maybe the reason it always goes on sale is because damn near every other WP game is free.

    Same as the weekly sales the same thing on sale every other month. Some of the WP games have never been on sale so why always the same crap?

    CanadianWhizKid said:If they simply had more games for these platforms, they wouldn't have to discount the same ones as often as they do. Or more new games anyways.That's not even it. There are like 200 Xbox games on WP. There are plenty of titles, especially older ones, that have not been discounted for years, if ever.

    Harbor Master, Parachute Panic, Zombies (on the phone), Revolution, Hexic Rush, Lode Runner Classic, Gerbil Physics, Fusion Sentiment, Lunar Lander, and the like. I don't recall them being on sale any time in the past two years, and they're all decent mobile games that still work on WP8.1, so instead of putting the same 8 titles on sale every other month, why not rotate in some of those great older ones? It should be pretty easy since those are all Microsoft Studios' games.

    Are the achievements hard to get on this game?

    DracoMightyena said:Are the achievements hard to get on this game?No, just very grindy. In the WP version, you need to collect 1 million gems which took me about 1 month playing everyday for 1-2 hours. I just played it on my train commute to work and right before bed.

    For the Windows version, you need to reach rank 81 which will take you months if you are playing legit, but there is an exploit you can use to reach it faster which only takes a few hours.

    I still play on the old GFWL system on PC. I always liked it. :)

    To date, there isn't even one single LIVE enabled Retail game for Windows 8. Everything is only "Indie/phone games".

    We can hope that third parties will support LIVE in Windows 10, but will only happen if MS nags them.

    I just recently switched to a Windows Phone... Always enjoyed Bejeweled without achievements so I'll try them with now smile
    There's no accounting for taste, it'd be best if everyone just respected that.

    Yeah, quite a few WP games I'd love to see on sale. Some were on sale ages ago, before I had my phone.

    I don't think Windows 8 even supports LIVE enabled retail games, since there aren't any. I suppose a full retail game could be offered through the windows store, with the Win 8 banner and achievements, but so far, its all XBLA equivalent, or even worse, android phone ports. They didn't keep GFWL for Win 8 for a reason, although they have never told us that reason...
