By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Before we start with today's new content, I bring the sad news that we have yet another Xbox LIVE Arcade delisting. The latest victim is word puzzler KrissX. Although no reason was given for its removal, developer Regolith Games has been inactive since 2010.

Windows Phone Games

After a very brief release onto the Windows Phone marketplace yesterday, the game returns properly as a full release today.

Age of Empires®: Castle Siege invites you to guide your empire through the Medieval Era on your Windows PC or touch screen device.

Then, train an army to raid other cities, and command them in battle to dismantle your opponents’ defenses.

Over the ages, you’ll research technology, live through famous battles, and recruit a variety of heroes to your side, including Saladin, Richard the Lionheart, and Joan of Arc. Outsmart your attackers and outplay your victims to earn achievements and climb to the top of the leaderboards.
