Microsoft’s Windows 10 upgrade program was discontinued for the general public last July, but you can still get your hands on a free upgrade to Windows 10 if you’re a user of the company’s assistive technology features. Luckily, Microsoft’s definition of the term is pretty broad, which means if you rely on features…
It’s hard to beat a game that you can’t even start.
Coming soon to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, the third installment of Zen Studios’ pinball platform will focus on community run tournaments and multiplayer match-ups. Today the studio announced which console and PC platforms can play together, as well as which Pinball FX 2 tables players can import into Pinball FX 3…
MS Paint, the first app you used for editing images, will probably be killed off in future updates of Windows 10, replaced by the new app Paint 3D. Microsoft lists the 32-year-old app under “deprecated features” in Windows 10’s next autumn update, a little X marking the end of an era.
Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition, which was nearly impossible to find from its initial release right up until the company stopped making it, proved gamers are hungry for nostalgia. But has 16 years been long enough for Microsoft fans to feel similarly nostalgic for the original Xbox’s gigantic controllers?
Super Lucky’s Tale, an Xbox One and Windows 10 version of the Oculus Rift VR game, is coming out on November 7, Microsoft said today. No, it’s not VR on the Xbox. It’s a non-VR version. Also that’s not Conker.
Phantom Dust, which we very recently named one of the best Xbox games, is re-releasing tomorrow on Xbox One and Windows 10. And it’ll be free.
Microsoft is doing their best to drum up excitement for the relatively mundane experience of updating Windows. Today’s release—the Creators Update—is a little more fun than the usual system tweaks, though. Is it worth its cheerful name? Maybe, if you’re a fan of MS Paint.
Silence, the long-awaited sequel to Daedalic Entertainment’s The Whispered World, begins with a World War II bombing raid that sends 16 year old Noah and his little sister into the magical world that exists between life and death. It’s a sad way to begin a beautiful adventure.
Following an E3 tease earlier this year, Minecraft’s “Boss Update” for the Pocket version and Windows 10 has finally arrived. The most exciting aspect of this update has to be the add-on system, which allows players to edit various values in the game to create their own modified Minecraft experience.
The Xbox One has built-in game streaming, so why not Windows? During today’s Windows 10 event, Microsoft announced that Beam interactive broadcasting technology would be built into the operating system with this spring’s free Creators Update.
Windows 10 is a free upgrade right now. That changes after today.
During SGDQ 2016, the charity speedrun event to benefit Doctors Without Borders, speedrunner Blood Thunder saw his BioShock playthrough get a sudden interruption: a Windows 10 update.
It’s telling that most of my stories about Windows 10, a genuinely decent operating system, have been about how crappy Microsoft has made the upgrade experience. Microsoft seems to be getting the hint, though.
Microsoft has been forcing Windows 10 upgrades for months now, an aggressive tactic that’s rubbed people the wrong way. The Seattle Times reports one woman’s computer was messed up by the update, prompting her to sue Microsoft. Not only did she win, she got $10,000.
All Erik Flom wanted to do was stream Counter-Strike for nine hours. Microsoft had other ideas.
In the next few years, Microsoft wants Windows 10 running on a billion devices. One way it’s making sure that happens is by tricking users into upgrading in shady ways. But here’s the real problem: Windows 10 is a good operating system, and Microsoft’s tactics are giving it a bad rap.
Microsoft really wants people to upgrade their machines to Windows 10, to the point that computers will now install the new operating system without your knowledge. This lead to a frustrating (but darkly humorous) situation today for Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismail, while checking out of a hotel.
