Review: State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition for Xbox One

19

I firmly believe State of Decay is Microsoft's not-so-secret weapon in the increasingly voracious console war.

World of Warcraft lead programmer Jeff Strain left Blizzard to head up Undead Labs, and from day one, the end goal was a full-blown zombie apocalypse MMO.

State of Decay is not an MMO, however - it is purely single player. The game acts as proof of concept for Undead Labs' long-term plans. To describe State of Decay and its Xbox One edition as prototypes is a disservice because I believe with conviction that this is amongst the best games on Xbox today.

Quick tip: Turn off notifications for the IMSA app for Windows Phone

6

The official IMSA app for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 recently joined us, and the good news is that it's largely a great app. The experience within is everything a fan of sports car racing could want, save for one small bug. I call it a bug because I have to hope that's what it is. While the most recent race was happening this past weekend, every 60 seconds or so the app would push out a notifcation.

Beer lovers rejoice as Untappd gets major makeover in 2.0 for Windows Phone

67

If you like to drink beer (and who doesn't) then you want to grab Untappd 2.0, now live in the Windows Phone Store. The free Untappd service lets users look up beers and check-in, record ratings, upload photos, notes and sharing the information socially. Users can even earn badges or follow people for recommendations on beer.

The previous app for Windows Phone was infamously a Phone Gap app, meaning it was not actually native, but rather a port with limited functionality. This limitation seems to change with 2.0, which looks to be a native app. Even better, the Untappd developers have included a rather lengthy changelog. Let's take a look!
