The Phantom Pain's development has often played second fiddle to rumors of employee mal-treatment and in-fighting between game director Hideo Kojima and parent company Konami. Still, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is almost here, and as of writing it's sitting at 95% on Metacritic.

Gamespot discovered in their review that the game's online player vs. player mode seemed locked behind a paywall, but Konami has since explained that it's not entirely true.

Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile is a very different OS from previous versions of Windows Phone in one respect: it is a more full-featured OS. This feature should not surprise anyone as Windows 10 Mobile share the same kernel, some APIs, and other coding similarities with Windows 10 for PC, Windows 10 on Xbox One and even IoT. Logically, this should mean that Windows 10 Mobile can be pried open to reveal its internal file structure like a true OS. Think of Windows Mobile and Android, for instance.

Evidently some low-level torrent trackers are banning Windows 10 due to paranoia over the new OS.

When it comes to the world of bittorrent, you cannot sidestep the big red flag that the majority of its usage is for sharing copyrighted material. Sure, torrents have legitimate uses, but let's not kid ourselves that most users are trading music, movies, games, and comics.

Putting that background into context and it is understandable that people running private trackers like iTS are slightly paranoid. After all, their business can be one fraught with lawsuits and criminal penalties.

This morning, AdDuplex, a partner with Windows Central and deliverer of cross-app promotions for Windows and Windows Phone devs, has released their August numbers for Windows Phone. The data is collected 5,000 apps running on all the Windows Phone in the global market and reveals current trends within the world of Windows mobile.

Considering that the last Windows Phones released on a wide-scale are the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, there has been little momentum recently. Pooled with Windows Phone 8.1 effectively being in a holding pattern as we wait for Windows 10 Mobile, this month's numbers are a little less exciting.

However, the Lumia 640 is finally making inroads into the small Windows Phone market, particularly in the US.

Lumia 640 races to #2 spot in U.S.

It was only in last month's AdDuplex stats (July, 2015) did we see the Lumia 640 for the first time in the US. The phone entered in the #10 spot, but just 30 days later it has achieved #2 with 8.8 percent of all Windows Phone in usage besting the old Lumia 521.
