So I noticed when I tried to buy it that its now tied to my AT&T account rather then a seperate credit card purchase, still safe?

yeah, you'll just be billed for the game on your cellphone bill instead of having to draw the payment through a checkings account or a credit card.

Just went ahead and did it but also added a required PIN on my google play account so its not automatic purchases, better safe then sorry. Dang, runs real well on my Galaxy Note with the settings maxed out. Now if I could just figure out how to attach a USB controller to it.....

you'll have to get a dongle. Motorola sells one for $20 it's just a male micro USB to a female USB adapter. they call it the "Camera Connection Kit" but i imagine you can find a generic one on Amazon cheaper.

the only full price apps i normally buy are root related. However, when games go on sale, i snatch em up. I still havent played all those games from that 10 cent sale a few months ago, but at that price, who cares. I'll get around to them eventually. :)

yeah, i have a pretty crazy game collection. i haaaave.. Angry Birds Space, Apparatus, Bejeweled 2, Cut the Rope, Doodle Jump, Draw Something, GTA III, Jelly Defense, Minecraft, Neon Zone, Plants vs. Zombies, Scramble with Friends, Spirit, Tap Tap Revenge 4, Warp Rush, Words with Friends and World of Goo. those are all actually games that live up to my really high expectations as i regularly go through my phone and clean out stuff that isn't worth the space anymore.

World of Goo is great. I have most of those and a lot more. Think I have close to 400 apps backed up in titanium right now. I might have played like 2/3rds of my collection by now.. lol. is it just me or did minecraft mobile suck?

Its improving slowly, its just like when the OG minecraft started, it'll take time to improve.

yeah, the updates are slow but the updates do bring alot of changes that bring it closer to being like the other platform's versions. there's survival and crafting now with 0.3.0 and with 0.4.0 they're adding Zombies, Creepers, Rare Mineral Blocks and more. that'll come sometime next month i believe.
