Three examples of great uses for a turbo controller

Three examples of great uses for a turbo controller

By  •  Features

Recently I posted my love for my turbo controller on Twitter and I received a ton of questions asking how a controller can make you a more efficient gamer. Over the years, my Blue Hori Turbo Controller has saved me hundreds if not thousands of hours of gameplay that I simply did not want to be a part of. As of right now, that same controller is no longer available but luckily the Black Hori EX2 controller has made some improvements and replaced my now ancient turbo controller at retail stores. What this controller does that makes it so special is that it allows you to flip a switch that presses certain buttons 13 or 27 times a second for you. So if you are serious about Gamerscore but not into the idea of achievements like “play [X] amount of games” or “play for [X] amount of hours”, then check out a few examples below showing how this magical piece of equipment has bailed me out many terrible games and saved me a fair amount of time while maintaining a high Gamerscore completion percentage.

Fez Complete Cube Guide

Fez Complete Cube Guide

Welcome to our gigantic Fez completion guide! This guide will take you from no achievements to 12, zero g to 200g and we’ll take you there… delicately. Thanks to community member MRX93 for helping us ever so slightly here and there. Without further ado… we have to explain some things.

[Editors Note: We highly recommend not using this guide until you can’t go any further on your own. Fez is about exploring and getting lost. Polytron put it best when they said “play like the internet doesn’t exist”. That being said, we know many people will become frustrated and want help. This guide is written for them.  Please use  it only as an emergency cheat-sheet.]

There are two ways to complete Fez. Complete it like you’re playing it, and to complete it for the sake of completion. We here at XBLA Fans are aware of this and have set up our guide in accordance with the different types of Fez players.

We have taken great care to separate anything and everything that would be considered a spoiler. Our policy follows that any puzzle that requires knowledge acquired outside of the area to which the puzzle belongs (barring basic knowledge and specific sections) will be posted in the SPOILER ZONE. Each area has one, and each zone is marked very clearly in text and with pictures. Each picture hints at what the spoiler covers. Once you’re done with many areas and have accrued much knowledge you’ll want to come back and check each spoiler tag to see if you can now complete that puzzle. Read More

Full House Poker fall season update: No news isn’t bad news

By  •  News

Microsoft has been rather silent on Full House Poker recently, which has prompted many of our readers to become worried the game might suffer a similar fate to its spiritual successor 1 vs. 100. The current summer season of Texas Heat started back in May, and while many of us have turned our calendars to fall, no plans have been made public regarding when Full House Poker will do the same.

Goodbye MGC, You Will Be Missed

Goodbye MGC, You Will Be Missed

By  •  News

Today marks a very sad day for the gamerscore community. Jason Young (Morgon) of MyGamerCard.net has officially announced that MGC will be calling it quits. For over 5 years MGC has been one of the most respected and reliable gamerscore sites on the web and it will surely be missed by many.

MGC is a victim of policy change along with a lack of interest from Microsoft in their community development program. Maintaining the site became an uphill battle that resulted in a loss of time and money over the past year. Jason did what he could to keep the site up and running but after constant setbacks, the obvious decision to discontinue the site had to be made. Read More
