Unroll Me - an addictive, challenging Windows Phone game that keeps on rolling

20

Unroll Me - unblock the slots is a puzzle game for Windows Phone 8 that has you solving a puzzle, which in turn creates a path for a white ball to travel safely to the finish point in the gaming levels. The game can be rather challenging in that you need to stay one step ahead of the rolling ball as you solve the puzzle or you'll see the white ball crash and burn, ending your hopes of completing the puzzle level.

The game has had a decent amount of success of on iOS and Android platforms and in playing Unroll me for the past few days, it should do well on the Windows Phone platform.

Microsoft's latest Xbox One ad has Aaron Paul inadvertently activating consoles

100

It's a rather humorous, albeit strange experience, but the latest Xbox One advertisement from Microsoft features Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul. That's not the strange part. Paul says the familiar phrase "Xbox On" towards the beginning of the clip, but it appears this verbal command is also having an impact on consoles in consumer homes as console owners have reported their own Xbox One booting up without their permission because of this advert.

Path turns lasting memories into fleeting conversations

27

Originally billed as a private network for families and friends to share lasting memories, Path is now making a radical departure from that vision, transforming itself into an ephemeral messaging service.

Ubisoft brings Valiant Hearts and Tetris Ultimate to Xbox One and Xbox 360 this summer

33

We're still trying to take in the full range of ID@Xbox titles that Microsoft and third-parties showcased during E3 this week. The Xbox 360 has an impressive library of downloadable games already, but the Xbox One will surpass that library sooner rather than later once the games start releasing on a steadier schedule.

It's not only indie developers that have exciting downloadable Xbox One titles in the works. Even giants like Ubisoft have gotten in the fray. Ubisoft actually pushed Valiant Hearts: the Great War during their press conference and on the show floor, a sure sign of faith in the gorgeous World War I-era adventure. Valiant Hearts launches on Xbox One and Xbox 360 later this month. And a little farther off, Tetris Ultimate will arrive on both Xbox One and 360 in late summer. Check out both games' trailers after the break!

The app says that it brings dual SIM support and smart dual SIM support, though these features were present since version 2.1. The app has a version number of 2.2.1.11 now.

73

Arguably the biggest sporting event in the world, the 2014 FIFA World Cup, kicked off today. Although some of my colleagues here from the US would shrug their shoulders at this ‘soccer’ extravaganza, the 20th edition of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil will see 32 countries participate from June 12 to July 13, 2014 for the greatest glory in the game.

While you’d be planning football parties with your friends or hit the pubs to watch the matches with other fans, you could use the following tips and the Windows Phone apps to follow the World Cup on your Windows Phone device. Whether it’s live updates, post-match reports, or the table standings, these are all the ways to get set for the World Cup apart from your usual sports apps like ESPN, Forza Football, or Goal.com.

In using Pizza Pointer over the past few days, it comes across as a handy Windows Phone app to help satisfy your pizza cravings.
