Un-carrier 8.0: A morning fire-side chat with John Legere on December 16

18

T-Mobile is preparing to shake things up again in the US wireless industry, and this time they're doing it by inviting you to watch a stream of… a fireside chat with CEO John Legere and Yahoo Tech's David Pogue. What exactly they're doing tomorrow, we're not sure, but T-Mobile's teasing that it's "so big [they] had to keep it under wraps."

The Lumia-exclusive feature displays time, missed calls, texts and emails, Facebook and Twitter notifications among others when the screen is off, negating the need for you to unlock the device to quickly check an incoming notification.

World at Arms gets Xbox Achievements on Windows Phone – Here's our review

30

Last week we broke the news that Gameloft would be updating Order & Chaos Online for Windows Phone at long last. In the same story, I mentioned that the publisher also has plans to update some of its non-Xbox titles to include Xbox features. We named Asphalt Overdrive as one game that will be switching to Xbox-enabled, but also promised there would be more.

Today the first game in the "more" category has become an Xbox Windows Phone title: World at Arms! A military-themed city building game with a strong player-versus-player focus, World at Arms is even more enjoyable with Xbox Achievements. It's free to play and compatible with 512 MB RAM devices, to boot. Read on for our detailed impressions of the newly-enhanced game.

2 Cars - a Windows Phone game with twice the challenge

18

2 Cars is a fast paced Windows Phone game that could drive you a little crazy. It's a racing game where you have to control two cars at the same time collecting certain targets and avoiding others.

Controls are simple, game play plenty challenging and 2 Cars does have a slight addictive quality. We were tipped by several readers about 2 Cars and after tinkering with the game for the past few days, it comes across as a decent time waster of a game for Windows Phone.

From the editor's desk: 12 Days sweepstakes, Microsofties in our forums and more

71

This last week of Windows Central has certainly been an interesting one. If you missed much of the news, or need a solid recap, make sure to catch our ICYMI series that goes up on Saturdays. Those articles tend to highlight all the big stories of the week, letting you catch up on things if you missed a day.

Perhaps two of our biggest stories have been the renewal of our Hidden Gems campaign and Microsoft engineers and developers lending a hand in our forums to talk all things Windows 10. For the first part, I'd like to quickly chat about something that will be controversial: the US/Canada-only nature of the sweepstakes.

Learn the secrets of 'Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom' for Xbox 360 and Steam

17

Adventure Time is a comedic animated fantasy show that seems perfect for videogame adaptations. Last year, fan-favorite developer WayForward created an Xbox 360 game called Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don't Know! Despite the company's track record with quality licensed games, Explore the Dungeon didn't set the world on fire.

This year, WayForward and publisher Little Orbit are back with another entry for Xbox 360, PC, and other platforms that improves on its predecessor in every conceivable way. In fact, Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom is the closest thing to a Zelda game that you can get on Xbox 360.

Adventure Time and Zelda fans, don't miss our latest Xbox developer interview with the game's producer, Ryan Rucinski of Little Orbit, complete with gameplay video!

Grab the Windows Phone game Octagon free through the myAppFree campaign

17

Octagon is an endless runner styled game for Windows Phone where you are tasked with guiding a ball down an endless, eight sided tunnel. The game has simple controls, colorful graphics and we found Octagon to be a fun way to pass the time.

Normally the game runs $1.99 but today through the myAppFree deal, you can pick up your copy up for free.

Warframe for Xbox One celebrates the holidays, and we run into crazy glitches

30

Last week we published a guide on how to download and play Onigiri, the first massively multiplayer online game for Xbox One. But the Xbox One already has another free to play game that's similar to an MMO: Warframe. Warframe doesn't have true hubworlds like an MMO, but it's still quite a robust multiplayer game (in English).

Since we reviewed Warframe a few months ago, developer Digital Extremes has continued to update the game with new quests, characters, items, and refinements. The most recent major update added Archwings, which give players the ability to fly and participate in brand-new game types.

Perhaps less positively, I've also been running into some fairly insane looking graphical glitches in these last few weeks. Read on to see screens and videos of the glitches, plus details on Warframe's holiday celebration!
