Review 13: The Terminator

Review is like app or game coverage but for movie series, television shows, comic books, and other geeky entertainment. It's great stuff you can watch and enjoy on your Windows Phone, Surface, Windows tablet, or Xbox! On this week's episode Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene talk The Terminator. It's a post-apocalyptic trip through the original and T2, with a dash of T3, T4, and Sarah Connor Chronicles thrown in for good measure. So how does James Cameron's genre-defining 80s flick hold up today? We absolutely, positively will not stop until we've talked it to death!

Worms Battlegrounds review: The classic game of Worms comes to Xbox One

34

Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs launched on consoles this week. Everyone who plays mainstream games is neck-deep in that game’s free-roaming campaign, extensive multiplayer modes, and cyberpunk hacking gameplay. Yours truly is still busy with Wolfenstein: The New Order, so the only dogs I’m watching are of the mechanical variety.

Xbox One also has a new indie game to play, courtesy of the ID@Xbox program. Worms Battlegrounds is the latest in the long-running Worms franchise from UK-based Team 17. Although about a million miles away from a free-roaming epic like Watch Dogs, Battlegrounds does sport a fully-voiced campaign, 3D landscapes and physics, local and online multiplayer, and even clan support. It’s the biggest Worms game ever, is what people who measure Worms games say. Read on for our full review with exclusive screenshots and hands-on video!

Racing upstream (of sorts) with the Windows Phone game Goldfish in the Sewer

10

Goldfish in the Sewer is a relatively new racing game for Windows Phone that approaches things from a different angle.

You are tasked with racing a goldfish through the twists and turns of the local sewer system for time. Make the run fast enough to earn a medal and you get to advance to the next race.

Goldfish in the Sewer has potential with nice graphics and challenging game play. The biggest drawback to the game is the racing controls that may have you swimming upstream with little hope for success.

Microsoft's Belfiore says WhatsApp fix is coming 'quite soon'

84

Can you feel that? It’s Friday, which means we’re about to go have fun for the weekend, but there may be a WhatsApp update in store for us shortly. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore took to Twitter again to calm the surging masses who want their WhatsApp back. In the brief tweet, Belfiore noted that they have worked with the WhatsApp team and that the fix should be here “quite soon”. To our ears that sounds like some last minute certification is occurring, meaning we may have something by this weekend (or earlier).

Modern Combat 5 will feature squads and chat in multiplayer

56

Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour is probably the best first-person shooter on Windows Phone. Not that there’s any real competition; the only other FPS I can think of is the same company’s disappointing N.O.V.A. 3. Modern Combat 4’s strength was in its single-player campaign; the multiplayer mode was pretty much a bust (see our review). That might just change in the upcoming sequel…

We’ve just come across some new multiplayer details for Modern Combat 5: Blackout, plus the two screenshots above. Some of the new features for part 5 include new game types, squad support, chat, limited time events, and improved leaderboards. These improvements should make for a compelling online multiplayer experience on Windows Phone – if Gameloft gets the matchmaking right this time. Head past the break for more details.

Computex is always an interesting show and while some of the products that end up appearing there tend to never see the light of day, Microsoft has taken to Twitter to tease the fact they have some new Windows devices to announce at the show. No further details were given beyond the image shared, but that's enough of a tease to make us wonder. We won't speculate what they're teasing but we'll be following along so stay tuned on June 3-4th or let us know below what you think it may be they're hinting at.

Thanks, Joe!
