Static IP option finally arrives in a new update for a few Lumia phones

34

A new firmware update for the Lumia 625, Lumia 925 and Lumia 525 started to roll out just over a week ago for a few users and with it came a small, but useful feature: static IP. The ability to set one's particular internet gateway and IP details is something nuanced, but essential for some users on various networks. Windows Phone's ability to support static IPs is as far as we know dependent upon the phone manufacturer as the OS itself does not have this baked in.

The firmware itself is slight, coming in at just 18 MB. It bumps the revision number from 1425.0002 to 1425.0003 on most devices, bringing the new static IP option, network+ option and some bug fixes, according to reader of the site Vinod K.

New Sherlock Holmes, Styx, and Blue Estate games headed soon to Xbox One

3

Having recently published a roundup of horror games coming to Xbox One and 360 next month, it's time to look at another batch of upcoming games. This time we turn our eyes and hearts to three distinct games from French publisher Focus Home Interactive.

Later this month, Focus will release Crimes & Punishments: Sherlock Holmes for Xbox One and 360 at retail. Then in October, Styx: Master of Shadows will sneak onto Xbox One and other platforms. Finally, the off-the-wall Kinect shooter Blue Estate is due out on Xbox One shortly after that. With adventure and investigations, stealth and action, and motion-based shooting, that's quite a diverse spread of games. Read on for plenty of details and trailers!

Cherry Mobile boasts Windows and Windows Phone Live Tile syncing in striking new ad

34

When it comes to commercials for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone, as they say in Hollywood, everyone is a critic. Either the ad should be complex or minimal, long or short, everybody has his or her idea of what works.

Philippines-based Cherry Mobile is one of the more recent budget manufacturers to jump on the Microsoft train, and they seem to be going all in with their latest commercial.

Microsoft absorbs Nokia's UK mobile devices website

48

Microsoft has migrated the main sections of what was the Nokia UK Lumia website to its own online portal. The tech giant recently pushed across the support pages covering Lumia software updates and now it appears as though the green light has been given to absorb remaining content. A combination of notifications and redirects have been set up to send consumers from the old Nokia website to Microsoft's new home of its own mobile products.

Incredible Toys - battle to save the Toy World with this Windows Phone game

10

Incredible Toys is a Windows Phone action/adventure game where you help a collection of toy heroes survive a journey through Toy World. Game play is along the lines of an action runner game with some RPG features. Graphics are nice with a slight children's storybook feel. I will say while gaming controls are simple, they can be a little stubborn at times.

Incredible Toys is not available for low-memory devices (not sure why) and while Incredible Toys has appeal, I'm not sure if it's strong enough to be a go-to title for your gaming library.
