Manuganu 2 jumps into Windows Phone and Android one month after iOS release

48

If you enjoyed playing Manuganu, a fun 3D platform game we've reviewed last year, then you're going to love the sequel. Manuganu 2 brings back many features from the original, but adds new ways of getting around. You run, jump, roll, fly, and swim to the end of each level while dodging obstacles and enemies. It has been available on iOS for about a month, and has just been released for Windows Phone and Android devices.

We've installed it on our Nokia Lumia 930. Head past the break to watch some gameplay on video.

Rise of the Tomb Raider goes Xbox One exclusive. Good or bad?

300

Today's announcements from Microsoft at Gamescom have been pretty exciting for console gamers. We saw the announcement of a brand new theme park simulator, ScreamRide, for Xbox One and 360, as well as fresh looks at several upcoming Xbox One games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection. And hey, Quantum Break looked pretty exciting in motion to boot.

But the real bombshell of the presentation was the news that Rise of the Tomb Raider from Square-Enix and Crystal Dynamics will be exclusive to Xbox One in 2015! Tomb Raider has been a mainstay gaming series since the Playstation One and Sega Saturn days, with this year's HD remake of the Tomb Raider reboot gracing both Xbox One and Playstation 4. But the sequel Rise won't show up on the Playstation 4, giving Microsoft a big peacock of a feather in its cap.

Windows Phone + Offspring + Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 live concert sample

100

One of the banner features of the Lumia Cyan update for high-end Nokia Lumias is the addition of Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 audio recording for video. The feature is a collaboration with Nokia and Dolby, along with the hardware needed in the Snapdragon 800 chipset and the four HAAC (high-amplitude audio recording) microphones

Ever since the Lumia 1520 received Cyan and Dolby recording, people have been asking for a sample. Last night, I managed to catch Pennywise, Bad Religion and the Offspring in Boston, where the Offspring were celebrating the 20th anniversary of their hit album Smash (1994).

Internal Microsoft poster touts 'deeply personal, universally human way...' for Windows 9

84

Say what you will about Microsoft – and you can say a lot – but the company is certainly trying all avenues to find its way in 2014 and 2015. Whether it is acquiring a phone division for hardware, merging its operating systems, streamlining the workforce for quicker responses or putting 'One' everywhere, the company is trying to reinvent itself for the modern consumer.

A new poster purported to be circulating inside Microsoft, features some new tag lines linked to ' Threshold,' the major revamp of Windows due next spring. Threshold is Microsoft rebooting the much-maligned Windows 8 OS to bring it back to desktop users and tone down the radically forward-thinking UI changes that Sinofsky wrought.
