    Awesome game. Having a blast with it on XB1. Thanks for giving it to us free!

    • Death Dealer

      ^This! Thank You!

    • ravenchorus

      Agreed! Been really looking forward for this game and it has been a pleasure playing it!

  • John Rodriguez Baltazar

    Freaking awesome game can’t manage to put it down.

  • Gazza!!!

    Do they shed any light on the 1000GS for the arcade version of Guacamelee?

    • Death Dealer

      Yes, it’s very strange. GS doesn’t mean much anymore. I loved it when there were clear cut scores for smaller games and larger games. With TMCC even getting 4000GS for essentially one purchase it’s clear that GS value is nearly worthless now. MS should make a meta “level” based on the games completed, GS/total possible gamerscore and achievements completed percentage.

      • Some guy

        4000G points for 4 games mean it’s worth less than 1000G for 1 game?

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        no no no. my achievements on xbox are my only achievements in life except a lot of other achievements but they mean the most. my degrees mean nothing compared to my xbox achievements. i am half serious. scary.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Achievements determine your rewards level at this point they do mean something. I worked so hard at getting to 25000 to reach the legend level. I’m not even going to worry about the next level, Masters at 75000 since that level is three times where I’m at now with little expectation to reach it anytime soon. Kinda a silly jump when first level is at 3000 then 10000 then 25000 then the big jump to 75000.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          i feel like a dork with 90,000+ i have played way too many games.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            I wish I had that much time on my hands. I own enough games to have that gamer score but I just don’t have the time it takes to get it. Or maybe I just suk at playing the games and it takes me way to long to get some of them. Either way I wish I had that much time available to be a dork. :D

          • Costas

            You would be a dork if you got it in a year or less,
            or if you bought games based on how easy the achievements are.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            i am awesome.

        • Some guy

          I don’t play that much but I got 100k, it only took 8 years…
          1000G per month more of less.
          Then there’s Stalion who have 1 000 000G(legit) and I doubt anyone will ever get close to that.

          • Gazza!!!

            There are a couple of people close. Smrnov was his closest contender but he just couldn’t get keep up the push. I’m close to 200000 but 6 years of GS hunting has taken its toll. I know would rather get 100% on good games rather than playing anything for cheap achievements. Yes I was one of those guys.

      • Gazza!!!

        I would like some sort of system showing the rarity of achievements similar to trophies but I cant see MS changing it to much.

  • beardyman3218

    This game is really good. Any news on an August system update?

  • Fred Gomez

    Great game!

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    ok time to watch lone survivor. 4th of july weekend starts now.

  • jase

    How about stopping EA charging for demo’s. they just lost my money.

    • Gazza!!!

      Lol it was a genuine mistake.

      • Digiadam

        It wasn’t.

        • Gazza!!!

          It was fixed after a short period of time and happened in one region. Make of that what you will but I also remember Wolfenstien be available digitally before the release date at £150 on the MS games store.

    • Nick Peck

      It was an error that has already been fixed, don’t be a moron.

      • Some guy

        I wonder what kind of error require you to type a price instead of not typing a price.
        I could understand if it was a priced item with one 0 at the end like 699.90.
        So it’s weird mistake from a company that try to make quick money with everything they can.

        • beardyman3218

          Maybe they were meant to update the price of the full digital version but applied it to the demo? Not sure but this has been overblown by gaming sites, nothing more than an error that has been corrected.

      • Death Dealer

        Already thought it was weird as I got it “Free” a few days earlier.

      • Digiadam

        You must work for EA. That’s the only logical reason why you would defend that awful company. A company that has awards for WORST COMPANY more than once. Their practices are retarded and poorly thought out and even the employees are trying to get out.

        If it was not for their awful sports games they would have been out of business a thousand time over by now.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      what the freck? and are you a frecking r-tard?

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        jk i don’t even do demos anymore. x1 cured me of that. i got gamefly.

  • Vince

    Major tell Blizzard they should let us import D3 characters from PC to console.

  • Rasdaj

    Hello Major. I just got an Xbox One yesterday and I love it! I was wondering if there are any plans for Xbox One to support resolutions other than 720 And 1080p in the future. Thanks.

  • beardyman3218

    Is there an August update coming?

    • Digiadam

      Forget August……what about the July update?

      • beardyman3218

        Is that not out yet? Im in the beta program so already have it.

        • Digiadam

          Nope….not yet.

    • sala91

      This is so important!

    • beardyman3218

      I take it by the lack of news there is no august update.
