Fans of the Hitman series will rejoice at the latest release, Hitman GO, now available for a universal purchase for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1.

The turn-based strategy game was released by Square Enix in April 2014 for iOS and later in June for Android. Coming nearly one-year later, those on Microsoft's platforms can enjoy the game on the small or big screen.

Hitman GO veers from the traditional gameplay of the Hitman series and is more of a puzzle game than an action adventure title.

The latest version is now live in the Store for Lumia Windows Phones (sorry, HTC One owners) and those with a Surface Pro device (but not a Surface 3, ironically). Here is what is new.

The Microsoft Band has a lot of potential and you can see that from the apps that third-party developers have come up with. Band Translate is a great example. It lets you ask for translations directly from the Microsoft Band. After installing the app, you can press and hold the action button on the Band and then say, "Translate [What you want to translate] to [In what language you want to be translated]." The translation then shows up on your Microsoft Band. Is that something you'd like to do? Check out our hands-on video to see Band Translate in action.

It should come of little surprise that besides a new OS, design language, icons and imagery that Windows 10 also brings some new sounds. We are specifically referring to the alerts, buzzes, and notifications that occur when you a new email arrives, an error happens, or whatever.

The site WP7Forum.ru has posted eight new sounds discovered in one of the Technical Preview builds for Windows 10. As far as we know, these are not user-ready yet, and it is not clear if the sounds are hidden, or they are just using an unreleased preview build of the OS.

Microsoft may be offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 for consumers who own a Windows 7 or 8.1 PC. However, for accounting purposes, the company is labeling this generous deal as a "marketing and promotional activity" in order to avoid a situation that would have normally forced Microsoft to defer revenues from the Windows division in their quarterly financial results.

Smash Champs is an arcade styled fighting game that hit Windows Phone Store shelves last week. The Windows Phone game is from the developers of Subway Surfers and has you taking on the role of trainer for some rather beastly fighters.

The better you train, the better your fighters perform in the battle arena.

Smash Champs has plenty of levels to advance through, bonus items to buy and the game is available for low-memory Windows Phones. Smash Champs does require a data connection to play and once you get the hang of things, it can be a decent way to pass the time. The game does take on fight game genre from a slightly different approach that may not be appeal to some. Still, I found the more I played Smash Champs, the more the game grew on me.
