So I see that this game Age of Empires Castle Siege is currently game of the week, but it shows the Win8 version. So if I play this on my windows phone I wont get the badge?? Seems sort of odd to me....
I'm the kind of guy who stops the microwave at 1 second just to feel like a bomb defuser.

Do you think you can be a badass in my leaderboard?? GTN Badass of the Month

If you don't have Win 8 and don't want to buy something, I'd suggest waiting for the next good Games with Gold drop, usually that gets best week. Otherwise, you're going to have to buy Destiny.

Actually, I'm not sure how this gets set up, I would think it would be Destiny now.

Also, Destiny is supposed to sync both ways, as well as Spartan Assault and many others.

But, they are different games and game IDs.
its not a big deal I was just wondering. Even though its on different platforms I still consider it the same game. you know what I mean? I just think if we are doing a "Game of the Week" it shouldn't matter what platform we play it on.

When games in multiple regions share the same ID, they show as one unified game (Universe at War is the same ID on 360 and PC, so, same game in tracking). When a game has a different ID in each region or platform, they show as different games, even if achievements are shared, and you get "stackable games" (Batman Arkham Asylum has a unique ID for regular, GotY, PC, Japan, and PC GotY, so, you get 5 stackable versions of the game). Right now, the Game of the Week is just a randomly selected Game_ID, and then who has played it. For the site to go beyond that, anytime a Game_ID is selected, the site would have to do a lookup (possibly with a reference table requiring maintenance) of which Game_IDs would be linked to the selected one, and then which gamers have played any of the selected games.

Not an impossible task, but, it would require extra code, and likely someone to maintain it. And since the initial idea is a random game of the week, and who has played that actual game, platform specific could easily be considered part of the intention.
I understand. makes sense

Will this count if I play it on Windows 10?
Live long and prosper.
I'm assuming an achievement needs popped to earn the badge? Since I already completed it, I'll have to wait for a different title. I didn't even know we had a "Game of the Week". Maybe I should leave the Entertainment forum once in a while, eh? Lol
