JoyJoy review: The most joyful twin-stick shooter on Windows Phone

24

Last month we named a little twin-stick shooter called JoyJoy as one of May's best new Windows Phone games. Now it's time to follow up with a full review!

JoyJoy comes from Radiangames, maker of the similarly fantastic Bombcats Special Edition. Radian originally published this one as an Xbox Live Indie Game on the Xbox 360 way back in 2010. Now a whole new audience can experience JoyJoy's simple shoot 'em up bliss along with an array of improvements and tweaks for mobile play. Fans of the genre won't want to miss it.

Watch the full response as to why Microsoft is considering Cortana for iOS and Android

1010

Earlier today it was reported that Marcus Ash, group program manager for Cortana on Windows Phone, was weighing the pros and cons of bringing Cortana to other platforms. The decision to do so is perhaps a lot more complicated than diehard Windows Phone fans would think when all factors get taken into account.

Now, a video of Ash's full response to the question of whether or not Cortana should stay on Windows Phone has been posted. In context, the question and answer is certainly a lot more complicated than one may think as there are benefits with either choice.

Prepare for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, coming to Xbox One and 360 on June 24

22

Next week, the Xbox One will be getting a beautiful and brutal new game at retail: EA Sports UFC, which we learned much about during EA's E3 press conference. The week after that, we'll be seeing a release that's even more exciting for this child of the eighties – Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and Sony and Nintendo consoles.

A game that crosses over the cool Cybertronian Transformers from the Fall of Cybertron game series with the Transformers movie universe would be exciting enough on its own. But today publisher Activision and developer Edge of Reality (makers of the great Incredible Hulk game in 2008) have sweetened the deal by revealing new preorder bonuses from GameStop and Amazon. We're talking about free characters, posters, and a digital comic. Read on for full game and preorder bonus details.

Vivino Wine Scanner is coming back to Windows Phone 8 real soon

38

Vivino (www.vivino.com) is the go-to wine app and service for those who enjoy fine grape potables after a long day of work. It's very popular on iOS and Android because it allows you to use the camera as a scanner to log your collection, including ratings, tips and reviews. That information can then be shared on their network or posted to your Twitter or Facebook. It's similar to Untappd but instead of beer it's for wine.

So why talk about Vivino now? Because in the coming week, give or take a day, the app is getting a significant makeover for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1. Vivino is on Windows Phone 7 already, as we covered the app's release back in February 2011. Unfortunately, the app has had no further updates and like an un-picked grape, it slowly went sour. But that's about to change.
