Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. Last week, we streamed horror game Outlast and dished out codes to nine lucky viewers.

The latest Cleartrip update is a complete rewrite of the app, and it's great

47

Cleartrip is one of the more popular travel websites in India, which allows booking of flight and train tickets as well as hotels. Incidentally, two years ago, Cleartrip was one of the first OTAs (Online Travel Agent) in India to launch a Windows Phone app, and Windows Phone was also their first platform of choice.

While that gave the service a positive mindshare among Windows Phone users, the app was long due for an update and the limited ability irked most users, as reflected in the reviews on the Windows Phone Store. The app finally got a decent refresh in June this year while still being limited in functionally.

Titan One review: Play Xbox One with Playstation controllers and much more

120

A couple of months ago, we reported on a unique accessory from Console Tuner that allows gamers to play any of the four big systems ( Xbox One and 360, Playstation 3 and 4) with controllers designed for other systems. I could imagine numerous potential uses: enhanced comfort from using the controller you like best, the ability to use expensive accessories like arcade sticks and racing wheels you already own for older systems, and much more.

At last I've picked up a Titan One and put it through its paces on my Xbox One and 360. With the diminutive USB adapter, I managed to play Halo: the Master Chief Collection with Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 controllers, Forza Horizon 2 with a Playstation 4 DualShock 4 controller, and even Killer Instinct with a USB Sega Saturn Pad for PC. Some of the Titan One functions have a bit of a learning curve, but our detailed review and hands-on video will show you how to get started with this must-have peripheral.

Grab some coffee and watch Cortana-creator Marcus Ash's 40th birthday music video

58

Say what you will about Microsoft but that crew tends to have some unique personalities and a driving desire to have fun at work. Although the video contained in this article has no news value per se, it is well suited for a Saturday morning as it provides some hilarious entertainment.

Marcus Ash, the Group Program Manager for Cortana on Windows Phone, should be a familiar face to our audience. Overseeing Cortana, Ash is often the public face of Microsoft's digital personal assistant. He is also, ahem, quite the dancer as evidenced by this video celebrating his 40th birthday.
