Hands on with Greeble 2 for Windows 8 and Windows Phone at PAX South
Although Microsoft only brought one Xbox One game of its own to PAX South (the highly anticipated State of Decay), our favorite company's presence mostly focused on indie games for Windows – be it PC, phone, or tablet. They called this showcase the Texas Indie Game Lounge. Games available for play in the lounge included Shroud of the Avatar for PC, Gravity Gunners (ID@Xbox), Raising Hell, the Gordian Knot, and Greeble 2.
Developer Fractal Fox's Greeble series tasks players with rescuing tiny creatures called Greebles from the gaping maw of a giant monster. Whereas the first Greeble only appeared on iOS, the sequel will launch on Windows Phone, Windows 8 and RT, Android, and iOS. I got some hands on time with the tablet versions during the show and quite enjoying the monster-tapping game play. Read on for full impressions and an exclusive hands-on video of the upcoming Greeble 2!

Microsoft accidently pushes 9932 build for Windows 10 Preview but fails to install
If you are using the Windows 10 Technical Preview, you may have had a few updates tonight. One of them is a Flash security fix to build 9926, and another is for the Windows 10 Technical Preview (KB3035129).
Interestingly, some users are also getting notifications for a 9931 and 9932 OS update. While at first this seems like good news as it implies new features and fixes, truth be told the update is meant for internal Microsoft testing only but it had been accidentally exposed. As a result, those attempting to install the update are met with a failure to install due to not having the proper credentials.
