Skylanders are now in McDonald's Happy Meals. Once again, they include a coupon for $1 off current Skylanders figures.

Tip: Many McDonald's have a family night when the Happy Meals are half price.

Major Nelson's comments aren't as moderated as you think. Everything goes up automatically except if you add a links, which need approval. They only remove cursing and threats. They leave negative comments in, even the dumb ones.

Threes! the popular number puzzle game is finally available on Windows Phone. It's a late arrival compared to iOS and Android but those platforms had to pay $1.99 for it. Windows Phone gets it for free.

Instead of saying "Xbox" to activate voice commands with the Kinect how about saying "Cortana" instead? That would be more in line with what Microsoft is doing on Windows Phone and Windows 10. It would cause less accidental activations. And on Xbox it would be cooler because so many are already Halo fans.

I can't believe the American Top Gear isn't hosted by Jay Leno and Adam Carolla, two talk show celebrities who are obsessed with cars and friends in real life.

This morning Kmart added official signage, so I think this is nationwide, that all video games were an additional 15% off the sticker price. Yes, this applies to clearance items.

Windows 10 press event:

1. You guys didn't even mention that all Windows users that have 7 or higher will get Windows 10 for free if they upgrade within the first year. Including DirectX 12 which squeezes more performance out of the hardware you already have.

2. They won't stream PC to Xbox One. One way gets you to play Xbox games. The other bypasses MS to play Steam games on their console. I think this feature is pretty neat. Mirrors the best feature of the Wii U. If someone wants to watch TV you can continue your game on your PC or tablet. Not just Surface, any tablet or laptop running Windows 10.

3. HoloLens is not only really coming out, it's this year. They specifically said HoloLens will come out around the Windows 10 launch timeframe.

4. Admit it. If HoloLens was announced by Apple, Cheapy and Shipwreck would be declaring it the greatest thing of the 21st century.

Posted by AriesDog on 31 May 2014 - 08:43 AM

Xbox Video is trying an experiment. Free movie rentals with ads. Nothing great, old catalog films, but it's free. I found the easiest way to find them is do a search in Xbox Video for "ads". I see four:

Harold and Maude - a dark comedy from 1970. Probably the best of these.
Powaqqatsi - artsy fartsy documentary.
Platoon Leader - a cheap knockoff of Platoon, starring Michael Dudikoff.
Wrong Turn at Tahoe - Cuba Gooding Jr. crime drama.

Like I said, nothing great, but free.
