Fire Fu - One hot Windows Phone game

Fire Fu is a recent gaming release over in the Windows Phone Store. The game is a fast-paced, arcade styled game where you learn how to control the element of fire to toast an endless supply of oddball creatures.

The Windows Phone game has sharp looking, hand-painted artwork and easy gaming controls. Add plenty of magic potions to help you blast the enemy, along with support for low-memory Windows Phones and Fire Fu comes across as an entertaining game to pass the time with.

Review: Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut for Xbox One

Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut is an enhanced edition of the mind-bending first-person puzzler from Toxic Games.

The original released back in 2011 for PC and eventually made its way to Steam, OSX, Oculus Rift and even Nvidia Shield. Toxic teamed up with indie outlet Grip Games for the Xbox One version, which has arrived via the ID@Xbox program.

Q.U.B.E. is most frequently compared to Portal, for its first person view and clinical setting. The Director's Cut brings in the game's time trial DLC and includes an expanded narrative penned by Rob Yescombe of Alien: Isolation fame.

So is this just a simple Portal knock-off? Or does Q.U.B.E. stand up for itself in an increasingly busy Xbox indie scene?

Bethesda is one of the largest game publishers in the world, with huge brands like The Elder Scrolls, Doom, and Quake to its name. This year the publisher stepped up its E3 performance in a big way, hosting an E3 press conference and announcing several big titles such as Fallout 4 and Dishonored 2.

The E3 presentation might be new, but Bethesda is no stranger to sharing game news and reveals to its fans. Every year the publisher hosts a fan convention called QuakeCon in Dallas, TX. This year marks the 20th anniversary of QuakeCon, and Bethesda has several exciting events going on throughout the convention (which runs through Saturday the 25th at the Hilton Anatole and is FREE to attend).

I'm at QuakeCon right now, where the opening ceremony kicked off earlier today. Read on for full details and what we've seen and will be seeing at the latest and greatest QuakeCon!

Windows 10 is due next week, and one thing we know won't be available is the new Skype messaging experience. First announced in January by Microsoft, the Universal Windows messaging app will let users chat using Skype directly from the Messaging app and switch to SMS for Phone users. Indeed, in the Windows 10 PC app, users can even see the ability to switch texting from Skype to presumably the phone, using the OS as a conduit.

Unfortunately, not much has been said about the Skype and Phone messaging app except that it will come later on. Some of our sources have suggested that Threshold Wave 2, which is expected in October, will attempt to bring this feature although plans are not yet finalised.

Following news about the Doom alpha at QuakeCon earlier today, Bethesda has also announced something special for Fallout fans. Fallout Anthology is a collection of all of the Fallout games for PC, and will be released on September 29 in North America and October 2 in Europe.

In all, the collection will contain the following games:

  • Fallout
  • Fallout 2
  • Fallout Tactics
  • Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Edition
  • Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition

In addition to the games, the collection comes in a pretty awesome collectible set. The games will come packaged inside of a collectible Fat Man mini-nuke, complete with bomb sounds and space to store your game discs, that looks pretty awesome. And, of course, with Fallout 4 on the horizon, Bethesda has included an extra slot for its game disc as well.

There's no word on price at the moment, and unfortunately this one is only for the PC crowd. As stated before, you'll be able to pick the set up on September 29 in North America and October 2 in Europe.

Over the last few weeks, rumors of Microsoft's upcoming flagship Windows Phones have been circulating the internet. Obviously many of these rumors contain half-truths or are just plain false. The referenced phones are codenamed Cityman and Talkman, and it is time to set the record straight on their specifications and features.

The first accurate reporting of Cityman and Talkman go back to April 17 when Blog Jack published exact information about the two devices.

Since then, I have been able to fill in the gaps and will complete most of the picture. To be clear, the information contained below is confirmed with multiple sources and I have the highest confidence in its accuracy. However, like all leaks, some of this should be treated with caution as plans can change.

Using a pen on a touchscreen Windows 10 PC should be as good of an experience with a remote connection as it is when using a mouse, a keyboard or a finger. That's what Microsoft has in mind with the improvements it is making to the Remote Desktop software when connecting from a Windows 10 client to a system that's also running the new OS.
