Review: Evolve for the Xbox One

This is my first review for Windows Central, and frankly it's a tough one. Evolve has been the subject of much controversy. Many gaming outlets have run articles examining DLC and 'value for money' as a result of the game's business model. Evolve features a prolific amount of paid DLC out of the box, in addition to being a full priced title. For a game that focussed almost exclusively on 4v1 multiplayer, many gamers felt that Evolve may not live up to the asking price. This review carries the danger of becoming yet another article on the issue of value in gaming. Ultimately - I want to help you decide whether Evolve is the kind of game you'd consider worth your cash.

UNWYND - a stylish puzzle game for Windows Phone

7

UNWYND is a relatively new Windows Phone game that has you tackling a series of puzzles where you have to include or exclude a series of colored boxes. The interface is simple and only requires a few swipes to solve each puzzle. However, finding the right solution may not be as easy.

UNWYND has over ninety puzzle levels spread across three chapters and while the game takes a few tries to get the hang of, it can be a real head scratcher. Available for low memory Windows Phones, the only real downside to UNWYND is the lack of a trial version.

Xbox app for Windows 10 starts to fold in Smartglass features

26

The Xbox app on Windows 10 is going to keep on improving as we progress through the year and the latest update adds some pretty important 'new' features. They're new to this app, but not to anyone who's been using SmartGlass on Windows 8.1. With the bump to version 3.3, the new Xbox app is starting to fold in some of the SmartGlass functionality ahead of an anticipated replacement by this new app.

Here's what's new:

Microsoft may be headed for daily releases of the Windows 10 preview

159

It looks like Microsoft is about to hit the gas pedal on Windows 10 preview releases. Yesterday, plans about updates were discussed in detail on the Windows blog, but it now looks like Microsoft is considering adjusting the speed/risk balance of the Fast ring, with increased updates.

Loading up the Insider Hub for Windows 10, a message notes that "Flights are getting faster" and that if you are not ready for "daily builds" of Windows 10, you may want to head to the Slow ring level instead. This change does affect Windows Phone and desktop OS builds for the Windows 10 preview.

However, the information was reportedly posted in error and premature.
