XBL Content Roundup: August 14th, 2014

    Why would you put up a link to the version of Assassin's Creed Pirates (Windows 8) of the game with no achievements?

    That version is like when Ubi decided to throw up Rayman Fiesta Run Preload Edition that stripped all live functionality.

    I will be downloading this tomorrow, and for the price of free you really can't go wrong. Plus you get free achievements, and we all know we like them, don't we?

    The game is live enabled. The chances are that the achievements aren't yet live.

    No, if you look at the accessibility note:
    The app developer believes this app meets accessibility requirements, making it easier for everyone to use.

    That is the same note as the one version of Rayman that I linked. Live Enabled versions don't have that note.

    W8 version of Assassin's Creed Pirates is Live enabled, but they aren't working at the moment. It asked for sign in at the beginning.

If you are not a completionist, that is a gimmie !I'm completionist i need this.I see you have some impressive completions, and are not afraid of some DLC, but this is a platform for massive amounts of pre-existing DLC tables from the 360 version, and you have not played the original, so you will need to buy a LOT of DLC, if you ever hope to complete this, as soon as all the 360 version tables are live enabled for the One version.
    Your financial solution

    I got all the tables when they were on sale on the 360, so not sure I'd be willing to do this if I hadn't.

    Lol, are you guys for real? It's $4.50. That's the cost of a sandwich, stop complaining.

    Looks like AC Pirates has already been pulled from the store. The content of the reviews and 1.5 star rating would indicate there are major problems running it even on the high-end phones. Will probably be back up after a fix.

    DLC table achievements are showing as 0 GS, though I remember Zen indicating that they'd be 10 GS as the article says. Anyone know if this will be "fixed"?

    It will be fixed, it is a known issue, they are working on it as we speak.

    I just got pirates on the WIN 8, and played enough to have received a few achievements, how ever currently there ARE NO ACHIEVEMENTS for the game so do not buy until it either updates to include them or save your money.
