Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris gives you the power to mess with your friends

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Preview

On Wednesday afternoon, I had the opportunity to demo a slate of upcoming games from Square Enix, the ever-expanding publisher / developer behind some of the most iconic franchises in the industry. As expected, the company has all of its bases covered once again in 2014, but a few titles stand out, compelling curious fans of the studio to experience something that breaks from tradition. These are the impressions of one of those games.

Windows 9 can’t come out soon enough for Microsoft

Windows Vs. Mac Vs. Chromebooks

We know that Microsoft is very eager to move past the less-than-enthusiastic reception that greeted Windows 8 and introduce us to Windows 9.

If Apple, Google and Microsoft merged, they still wouldn’t employ as many people as Samsung

How Many People Work For Samsung

We all know that Samsung is an absolutely huge company but we never realized it was quite this big before. Ars Technica’s Ron Amadeo just looked up employment statistics for several major tech companies by sifting through their 10-K files and found that Samsung Electronics — not Samsung as a whole but just Samsung’s electronics division — employs an astonishing 275,133 people. For perspective, that’s more than the combined number of people employed by Apple, Google and Microsoft.

However, we now have two new reports confirming that Microsoft really is planning to put the “Windows Phone” brand out to pasture and just refer to every single software platform it puts out as “Windows.”
