    Temple Run 2 doesn't seem to be able to be downloaded on Nokia Lumia 520. Just an FYI.
    It requires 1GB of RAM. An update for 512MB devices is "planned" according to a developer.
    Gamers have two hobbies: Playing games, and complaining about those games

    The old minesweeper (wp) has been removed from the store now that microsoft minesweeper has come out. I submitted this as news but they didn't even mention it here!
    We got your suggestion and we checked it out. As the game is still available on the marketplace here for everybody to download and hasn't been removed as you claimed, we didn't mention it.

    Microsoft Solitaire Collection (WP) is a battery killer. Seems like some rouge piece of code is turning my phone into a pocket heater when I play it!

    Recommend waiting for the inevitable update.
    The Mahjong game eats battery too :(

    Is Final Fantasy 3 actually Final Fantasy 3 or is it Final Fantasy 6?

    It's a remake of the 8-bit NES Final Fantasy 3, which also had a release on the DS.

    The glitchy Mahjong achievements (at least in my experience) can be popped relatively easily.

    The 10 in a row achievement will only pop if it is 10 wins in a row without exiting from the game or going to lock screen.

    There is one medal (that goes towards the 20 medals gained achievement) that is glitchy, but you can simply avoid it and go for one of the other medals, as there is more than 20 in the game.

    And a couple of the "win xxx games" achievements will unlock if you play one more game than required (at least that's what I found).

    I still have FF3 on my DS. Got a review copy some years back while writing for a magazine, didn't get to return it.

    I'd love to play it for achievements, if they weren't so hardcore.

    Does anyone know when will the full game for Little Mermaid be released? The trial version has three achievements for a grand whopping total of 28 TA at the moment. I could outsource the game to my wife for some easy points.

    But then if you didn't finish it before it would sell for more than 17 you'd be out even more money so...

    You can get it for the DS now for around $10 or less...and be able to sell it back afterwards. Regardless, $15.99 is pretty steep for a digital copy of a game even if it weren't on a phone. I just don't understand people (not you per say) that willingly throw money away on digital content (at full price) and think that an all digital future is going to be awesome.

    OT: That Solitaire game isn't the only battery killer. The Minesweeper game also drains a battery faster than it recharges. Not sure why these new MS games are such battery killers.

    I'm finally getting the Xbox One and it should arrive tomorrow. Then I'm one of the few in Finland who owns it since it's not released here yet. Which kinda sucks... Well I'm finally going to get to play Halo: Spartan Assault on Xbox One and it's probably my first and only game on it at this time.
