Windows Phone Games

WWE2K 15 is now available on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, allowing wrestling fans to step into the shoes of 63 wrestling superstars as well as several divas and managers. Xbox One and Playstation 4 owners haven't had a chance to step into the ring just yet, as the current-gen versions of the game don't launch until November 18. The extra wait has been rough but necessary because the Xbox One version will boast many unique features that didn't make it onto Xbox 360.

One of those features is a new-and-improved character creation mode, dubbed Superstar Studio. Today 2K Games released a video that details the Superstar Studio's depth and versatility. Players will be able to import their own images to customize wrestler faces, tattoos, clothing, and more. This looks like the most customization a wrestling game has ever offered – keep reading for the trailer and more details!

Not long ago, Koei Tecmo announced the mid-Febrary release date of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round for Xbox One and 360. The latest in the popular Dead or Alive series, Last Round will be the first fully 3D fighting game for the Xbox One. Most interestingly, the game will be offered as a free demo with four characters, a $5 version with 8 characters, or a full retail package with all 32 characters for $40.

Dead or Alive: Last Round won't be the only early 2015 release from Koei Tecmo. In January, the publisher plans to release Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires for Xbox One and Playstation 4. Also coming for those systems in early 2015 (no specific release date) is Bladestorm: Nightmare. Both are strategy games based on historical conflicts, promising hundreds of enemies on-screen at once and hundreds of hours of gameplay. Read on for trailers and early impressions!

Fishing is a fantastic way to spend the day but with the Seasons changing and temperatures dropping, the opportunity to spend an afternoon on the lake may not still be available for many. For those who are itching to try their hand at hooking the catch of the day during the colder months (or at least pretending to), there is a small collection of Windows Phone games available in the Store.

We've pulled four of the top rated fishing games from the Windows Phone Store for this week's roundup and while some of the titles approach fishing from a non-traditional approach, all are decent games to pass the time with.

If you are in search of a simple, challenging, addictive game for your Windows Phone - you will want to try Night Chopper.

Night Chopper is inspired by the Timberman games but approaches being a lumberjack from a slightly different angle. The viewpoint of chopping down the tree is from the bottom up. That is you are looking up the center of the tree. The different perspective does take a little time to get used to and can drive you nuts (in a good way that is).

Available for low-memory devices, the developer has done a good job delivering a rather nice gaming title to our Windows Phone.

Earlier this week we reviewed the white Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Special Edition bundle, which launched first in North America followed by the UK a few days later. I found the bundle to be a very good value at $400, as it comes with a fresh and exclusive game and a unique looking console and controller. At $350 (the price starting Novermber 2nd), the Sunset OverDrive console will be a steal.

It turns out the white console has even more value than anyone knew. On Halloween, people who purchased the console and went online started receiving a surprise message from Microsoft with a free code for Ryse: Son of Rome! We can't say whether Microsoft will keep sending them to people who buy the Sunset Overdrive console later on. Still, it's a very classy move and a terrific way to welcome new players into the Xbox One fold.

Spider-Man Unlimited arrived on mobile back in September. The game instantly webbed me with its great graphics, huge array of collectible characters, and overall excellent use of the Spider-Man license. But I also caught many bugs in my review that I hoped would be fixed before long.

Just in time for Halloween, Gameloft has delivered a major update to Spider-Man Unlimited. The update adds a fourth "issue" to the game's story mode starring the Sandman, a limited time holiday event featuring Jack O'Lantern, and a host of changes and bug fixes. Most importantly for Windows Phone users, it now runs on devices with 512 MB of RAM! Read on for our detailed impressions of the new content and changes!

Game Insight makes some outstanding mobile games including the addictive Cloud Raiders, 2020: My Country and Airport City. Today, their other empire-building game The Tribez is finally available for Windows Phone users.

The Tribez has been on iOS and Android for a few years (since 2012) already garnering some very high reviews. The game weighs in at 153 MB and yes even those with 512 MB devices can get in on the action. So far, the graphics of The Tribez look outstanding and the sheer size of the game's world seems highly impressive.

Diamond Blitz is an online puzzle game where you play against others to see who can create the most matches (or diamonds) from multi-colored tiles. Game play is similar to other online games available such as Wordament; you just try to play with colored tiles instead of letters.

Diamond Blitz is available for low-memory Windows Phones as well as Windows 8 devices. The game comes across as maybe more of an acquired taste than one with across the board appeal but isn't without challenge, testing your skills at speed and recognition. While it may not end up being everyone's cup of tea, Diamond Blitz is a gaming title worth trying and might even surprise a few.

Last night we hosted one of our most exciting Twitch streams yet. Hundreds of viewers tuned in to get an early look at Halo: the Master Chief Collection for Xbox One. Yours truly played through one mission each from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 2: Anniversary.

I absolutely didn't remember where to go in either mission, and sometimes I struggled against the Covenant hordes (especially the Hunters in Halo: CE). But we all had a great time, met some new readers and viewers, and maybe even learned a little something about life. See yesterday's post for archive videos of both games.

Tonight's stream focused on Halo 3 and 4. These two games haven't received the same level of enhancement as Halo and Halo 2, but they still look and run better than ever on Xbox One – especially Halo 4. The stream has now ended and prizes have been awarded. Check out our replay videos to see both games in action!

Know anyone that sleepwalks? It sounds dangerous. In Back to Bed, you guide a sleepwalker named Bob to the safety of his bed. You don't want him to fall off a ledge. To achieve this, you control a subconscious guardian named Subob. He looks like a dog with a human head. Since Bob automatically turns right after hitting a wall and other objects, it's up to you to place things in front of Bob at the right place and time.

We've installed Back to Bed on the Lumia 1520 and Surface Pro 3. Check out our gameplay video.
