In January, Microsoft first showed off an image of the new Skype and Messaging app for Windows 10 on the PC. Since then, that app has not been included in any of the preview builds for Windows 10 sent to Windows Insider members.

Capcom is making good on its promise to shareholders to release more HD remakes, with Resident Evil Zero HD hitting Xbox One and PC in 2016.

Superslug is the latest Windows Phone game from Infinite Square and has you fighting off an invasion of hostile chickens. You can destroy the chickens by tapping them or jumping over them with your super slug.
Game play does take on an endless runner feel in that you play until the chickens get the best of your slug. You have a handful of power-ups you can pick up to better the odds and there is the option for Facebook integration to brag about your scores.
Available for low-memory Windows Phones, Superslug joins Infinite Square's growing library of quality apps such as HiLight and Say it with Flowers. I don't know if Superslug can stand up to a marathon gaming session but it is an enjoyable game to pass short bits of time with.
