Hit the break below for my initial look at both of these apps.

The new Ford GT is the cover car in Microsoft’s upcoming simulation racing game to succeed Forza Motorsport 5. It’s spectacular. Both on the inside and the outside. Boasting twin turbos at a whopping 600 horsepower and going 0-60 (mph) in just 3.2 seconds, this could live up to be one of the greatest cars ever built. And we have it as the cover car for Forza Motorsport 6. There’s just one problem, it hasn’t entered production and Ford doesn’t plan on doing that until 2016.

Hit the break below to find out about how Turn 10 plan to bring cars like the Ford GT simulated in Forza Motorsport before they hit production.

Like so many other twenty something gamers out there, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee was one of the first games I ever played on a console. I can still remember playing it now, I'll be honest at no older than 10 it was pretty tough going.

Over time I began to progress slowly but surely often sharing the controller with my brother. Countless miss jumps and blunders into meat grinders or explosives. New 'n' Tasty is a complete recreation of the same PS1 cult hit experience way back from 1997, the good and the bad still all there, but in glorious HD.

Read on to find out whether Abe is serving up something New 'n' Tasty or whether almost twenty years on the side has made it turn stale.
Microsoft finally announced the release date of Halo 5: Guardians. The game will launch on October 27, 2015. In a live-action trailer that premiered with the season finale of The Walking Dead, the release date showed up after a rather shocking diatribe by Spartan Locke against Master Chief. In the trailer, Agent Locke blames Master Chief for the destruction he has caused. The clip ends after Locke pulls his pistol towards Master Chief's head and is about to pull the trigger. However, there's a twist! There's another trailer which reverses the roles and there we see Master Chief pointing the gun at Agent Locke. He's blaming Agent Locke for the destruction which has occurred in his relentless pursuit.

When Microsoft released the Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones, it was limited to a very small number of devices. There was no flagships included and the main devices were the Lumia 630, 635, 735 and 830. Of course, we all took to Twitter to express our concerns to Microsoft in a friendly matter (the last bit there is not true). Microsoft have now updated Windows Insiders on what devices will be included in the next build and there’s quite a lot of them.
