It's time to embrace the change with Windows 10, not dismiss it before it arrives

450

In the week that was Microsoft was the talk of the town. From Windows 10 through the enormous Surface Hub and the HoloLens, the Redmond event left the tech world – and arguably even further beyond – talking about Microsoft. Satya Nadella himself said that Microsoft wants people to love Windows. And a lot of work is going into making that a reality.

To continue to grow and develop, change is inevitable. But change frightens and frustrates, we become creatures of habit set in our ways. But it's going to happen, so we should embrace it. Not write it off before it's officially even here.

43

Last week, your friendly neighborhood Games Editor had to miss the Windows 10 event that knocked everyone's socks off. Don't feel sorry for me, though – I was busy with a gaming-specific event in San Francisco. That's where CD Projekt RED hosted the first-ever hands-on event for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, their open-world action-RPG that comes to Xbox One, Windows, and PlayStation 4 this May.

After a short presentation from the game developers, my fellow journalists and I sat down for several hours of uninterrupted playtime with The Witcher 3 on the platforms of our choice. Guess which one I picked! The event wrapped up with a short question and answer session that provided additional insight into what the finished form of The Witcher 3 will be like.

Read on for my detailed gameplay impressions, news of the Witcher 3's second playable character and more!

Strung Along, a unique platformer game for Windows 8 and Windows Phone

15

Strung Along is one of the more unique platformer games that is available for Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices. You control a wooden string puppet across multiple levels of game play.

You will have to avoid obstacles and avoid over extending your puppet that will break its strings. The levels are timed, so you will need to balance speed with caution to avoid snapping your puppet's strings. The Windows Phone version is available for low-memory devices and after spending a little time with the game, it does have a bit of appeal.
