Age of Wonders III is a turn-based strategy game for Windows PCs from Dutch developer Triumph Studios. The game allows players to create a political leader of their own and then set out to survive and conquer a fantasy world filled with races like humans, elves, and orcs. Since last year's release of Age of Wonders III, Triumph has kept strategy fans busy by releasing free updates and a first paid expansion called 'The Golden Realms.'

Today Age of Wonders III received another major free update - the Version 1.5 Update, as well as a second expansion: 'Eternal Lords.' The update refines an already tight strategy game with numerous tweaks and enhancements. 'Eternal Lords' adds an all-new campaign, two new playable fantasy races, and much more.

We'll have a full Steam Spotlight review of Age of Wonders III in the weeks to come. For now, check out our quick game impressions and 'Eternal Lords' DLC details!

The Year One Survival Edition comprises State of Decay, as well as the add-ons Breakdown, Lifeline, and a trunk load of other improvements (including the ability to use car trunks!)

One of the highlights of the current crop of budget Lumia devices is that they offer Windows Phone experience consistent with the more expensive and flagship Windows Phone devices. Of course, they differ in the internals and hardware capabilities, but the platform experience is pretty much the same.

I used a Lumia 532, the latest budget smartphone from Microsoft, for a few weeks as my daily driver and in the following video, I see how it fares against the Lumia 830 I've been using since a while.

One of the very first video editing apps we got for Windows Phone was Movie Maker 8.1, and to this day it's still one of the absolute very best. Today, there's a substantial new update pushing out with one of the headline features being support for 4K video.

Oh, and if that wasn't enough, we've kindly been provided with 100 codes to snag a free plugin within the app from the developer. But you'll have to be quick!

Oddworld Inc. co-founder Lorne Lanning, says that a remake of the legendary PS1 classic Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus is the 'next logical one to go into production'. I agree.

Following the reception of Abe's Oddysee's 'New n' Tasty' remake, it certainly makes sense!

Beyond Flesh and Blood is an ambitious third person shooter with horror over tones, slated for a full release on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Linux in Q4 2015.

Pixel Bomb Games were established in 2011 and are based in Manchester, which also serves as the game's setting - which as far as I know, makes it a world first for one of the UK's largest cities.

Apple made a bold statement at its recent Spring Forward event, that its all-new MacBook had reinvented the notebook. We've all had our own opinions on it, especially given the strength of the Windows Ultrabook scene right now. But they're also opinions based on early looks and spec sheets. Thankfully, our buddies over at iMore have reviewed the MacBook in full to give us a little more information.

With the likes of the Asus Zenbook UX305, Samsung Ativ 9, Dell XPS 13 and Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon to name but a selection, in the Windows stable, there's a ton of great laptops out there right now. So how does the MacBook stack up?

Windows Central photo contest: Water

The photo contest is back, and we've changed things up once again. We took a week off last week with it being the Easter holiday weekend for many of us on the Mobile Nations team. But now we're going to change it up again and we're giving more people more time to enter. The contests will now each run for two weeks, and we're going to try out some new prizes along with it.

You'll find all of the relevant information below. But onto this weeks topic, Water. Something commonplace in life, yet that still lends to taking many different styles of shot. The one up top is a quick sample I took this past weekend with the Lumia 640 XL on a gloomy afternoon. But you guys will certainly do better.

So, to the rules and a little housekeeping, announcing the winner of the last weekly photo contest!
