Luno - a sleep walking, dark adventure for your Windows Phone


Luno is a somewhat interesting Windows Phone game where you are called upon to help a young boy, Luno, find his way through the woods and safely home.

The challenge is that Luno is sleep walking and isn't being very careful where he steps. You have to protect him from bear traps, crows, thorny bushes and other dangers as he treks through the woods. The side scrolling game is available for low-memory Windows Phones and has nicely drawn up graphics, challenging game play and overall, a fun title to have in your Windows Phone gaming library.

Metrotube gets updated to squash some annoying bugs


Metrotube has picked up an update, which is readily available on the Windows Phone Store. The latest release is only a minor bump for the app, but does address multiple issues fans of the unofficial YouTube client may be experiencing.

Version 4.6.2 fixes an issue that could prevent you from logging in, as well as addressing problems found on search pages in various languages. The changelog lists "other minor fixes", so we can assume the developer has worked tirelessly to squash all those annoyances that prevent you from enjoying a bug-free experience.

T-Mobile is going on the offensive against Verizon by launching a "Never Settle" campaign that allows existing Verizon customers to try out T-Mobile's services for free.

The carrier is giving Verizon customers the ability to port their numbers to a new T-Mobile smartphone (while retaining their existing Verizon phone), which they can use free of charge for up to 14 days. After the trial, if the customers wish to stay with T-Mobile, the carrier will cover Verizon's Early Termination Fees:

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


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.
