(Update) Xbox One May dashboard preview includes option to stream games to other devices

101

Update: An Xbox One engineer has confirmed on reddit that game streaming is not a part of the May update, but emphasised that the feature is still being developed. (via XboxMAD)

Original post:

Xbox's Major Nelson took to Twitter yesterday to mention that a dashboard preview update would be rolling out, and that it would mostly contain bug fixes and refinements for April's update. The Major also noted that May's new features would arrive for preview members later this month.

Today's patch may have given us a clue as to what exactly will be in that feature update. The preferences section now lists "Allow game streaming to other devices (beta)" underneath System & App settings.

Here are some of the things you can buy at the Microsoft Company Store

106

We recently visited the Microsoft campus in Bellevue, Washington. We had a few meetings, but we also made sure to stop by the company store. Curious to see what you can buy at the store? We took a bunch of photos.

The Microsoft Company Store is where you can buy many Microsoft-branded merchandise. You can get coffee mugs, t-shirts, lanyards, stickers, sweaters, hats, and more. The store also carries Windows and Office products, Xbox game consoles and accessories, first-party games, and even Xbox Live memberships. The section for discounted software and hardware is reserved for employees, but visitors can buy the branded items.

Age of Wonders III for Windows PC gets huge Eternal Lords expansion and update

16

Age of Wonders III is a turn-based strategy game for Windows PCs from Dutch developer Triumph Studios. The game allows players to create a political leader of their own and then set out to survive and conquer a fantasy world filled with races like humans, elves, and orcs. Since last year's release of Age of Wonders III, Triumph has kept strategy fans busy by releasing free updates and a first paid expansion called 'The Golden Realms.'

Today Age of Wonders III received another major free update - the Version 1.5 Update, as well as a second expansion: 'Eternal Lords.' The update refines an already tight strategy game with numerous tweaks and enhancements. 'Eternal Lords' adds an all-new campaign, two new playable fantasy races, and much more.

We'll have a full Steam Spotlight review of Age of Wonders III in the weeks to come. For now, check out our quick game impressions and 'Eternal Lords' DLC details!

A consistent Windows Phone experience is the unique selling proposition of budget Lumia devices

133

One of the highlights of the current crop of budget Lumia devices is that they offer Windows Phone experience consistent with the more expensive and flagship Windows Phone devices. Of course, they differ in the internals and hardware capabilities, but the platform experience is pretty much the same.

I used a Lumia 532, the latest budget smartphone from Microsoft, for a few weeks as my daily driver and in the following video, I see how it fares against the Lumia 830 I've been using since a while.
