For many people, the future of Windows 10 could begin with Windows 10 S.  A leaked document, revealed by Thurrott.com, suggests that Microsoft wants Windows 10 S to be the first version of Windows 10 seen by buyers of new Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro PCs. Windows 10 S and Windows 10 are reportedly being fused together, so that Windows 10 S becomes a “mode” of Windows 10.Windows 10 S only allows UWP apps to be loaded from the Windows Store, locking out traditional Win32 .EXE files. (Thurrott.com noted, however, that these versions of Windows 10 S will…

Like the MOBAs they inspired, real-time strategy games have always been one of the most intimidating and least accessible game genres. It’s a big reason why I don’t play them a ton. But if you give me something with a clean, polished look and a more specific focus, I can get behind it. It’s a big reason why Company of Heroes 2 is one of my favorite RTS games despite my general disinterest in historical military settings – an aesthetic that Ancestors Legacy from developer Destructive Creations aims to pillage and plunder until it’s no more. Ancestors Legacy is the…

Bayonetta is back and better than ever on Nintendo Switch. With both the original and sequel launching together later this month on the young hybrid console, the Switch versions of the games don’t feature too many noticeable differences from the original — but trust me, that’s a good thing. By far the most significant change for the Switch versions of Bayonetta 1 & 2 is the frame rate – with both games running at a locked 60 fps. Both games still run at a native 720p. However, the upgrade in hardware allows each to reach a much smoother frame rate…

Since I’ve been alive, video game movies have burned me left and right, leaving mental scars of unhappiness when some of my favorite video games get butchered by Hollywood’s hand. Case in point: Silent Hill, Warcraft, and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. Live-action renditions are particularly guilty, which unfortunately doesn’t leave any room in our hearts for any video game movie, even animated, to be considered as a possibility for success. Nintendo is stepping back into the movie industry with Illumination Entertainment (the studio behind Despicable Me) and aiming to put their iconic characters on the silver screen. But…
