Check out Destiny Stats, an unofficial Destiny companion app for Windows Phone

41

Playing Destiny on your Xbox One (or Xbox 360)? Then you're probably bummed that Bungie didn't make an official companion app for Windows Phone. They're currently have no plans to make a Windows Phone app, so no good holding your breath. Instead, try out Destiny Stats for Windows Phone. It's an unoffocial app that gives you read-only access to your Destiny data.

Alien: Isolation will bring sci-fi horror to Xbox One and 360 in October

31

Last month, our own John Callaham posted his ten most anticipated Xbox One games for the fall and Holiday seasons. On that list was a little game called Alien: Isolation from SEGA and The Creative Assembly. You might see the name "Alien" and dismiss the game as another uninspired licensed game, but you'd be wrong to do so. Alien: Isolation looks like it will be not only the best-ever adaptation of the Alien universe, but also a standout horror game.

Review - Misfit Shine fitness band gets an app for Windows Phone 8.1

93

Misfit Shine (misfitwearables.com) is a new and modern smart device used to measure daily activity, like running, walking, sleeping and more. Like Fitbit, your scores are synced to the cloud where your phone acts as a conduit for record keeping, goal setting, and social interaction.

Today, the official Misfit Shine app is available for Windows Phone 8.1, joining iOS and Android. Due to the availability of Bluetooth 4.0 LE and the new APIs for developers, Misfit can get their app on Microsoft's mobile OS.

I have been using both the hardware and software for a few days now and this is all you need to know.

Dance Central Spotlight review – The ultimate Kinect dancing game now on Xbox One

32

When the Xbox One launched last year with the Kinect peripheral included with every console, many gamers resisted the Kinect's inclusion. And why wouldn't they? The new Kinect had launched without what many consider the best Kinect game series on Xbox 360: Dance Central. That hole in the lineup has been filled now that Harmonix (maker of the upcoming Fantasia: Music Evolved) has unleashed Dance Central Spotlight exclusively as a downloadable Xbox One title.

Microsoft rumored to drop 'Phone' from Windows Phone, losing Nokia near the holidays

640

When Microsoft acquired the Nokia mobile division it bought the rights to the Lumia name, but not to Nokia, which lives on a separate company. In that sense, the notion that Microsoft eventually phases out Nokia branding from its products is of little surprise since they have to do it.

A new report from the site Geeks on Gadgets claim that this transition period takes effect as soon as the Lumia 730 and Lumia 830 hit the shelves. In other words, those will be the last Lumia devices with the Nokia name emblazoned on them. Considering Microsoft is not suspected of any new Lumias until 2015 – possibly with 'Threshold' – the effect will not be felt for some time.

Microsoft's Lumia 735 is coming to Verizon Wireless

Last night, AT&T and Microsoft's Stephen Elop let it the world know that the 'affordable flagship' Lumia 830, announced last week in Berlin, is coming to the US carrier in the coming months. However, Verizon Wireless has lately overshadowed AT&T for new Windows Phones, as 'Big Red' has managed to scoop up the Lumia Icon (aka Lumia 930), Samsung ATIV SE and HTC One for Windows.

Nevertheless, one missing link in Verizon's portfolio is a new mid-range Windows Phone, as the others are all considered high-end and flagship.

Archos 40 Cesium gives Nokia a run for its money at $99/€79.99

59

As much as Windows Phone competes in the high end, the low-end is where the real action is at, and Archos's new 40 Cesium Windows Phone is the latest entrant to challenge Nokia's Lumia 530. And it does so at the same $99/€79.99 price point as Nokia's latest entry-level Windows Phone, while possibly bringing a bit more to the table. At IFA 2014 we had the opportunity to go hands on and see just what Archos has in store for Windows Phone.
