Every weekend, Windows Central livestreams an Xbox One or Steam game for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It’s like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers! We call this show Saturday Game School, because learning about new games is always fun.
Tonight on Beam, we played Star Trek Online: Reckoning, the latest free expansion to the official Star Trek MMO from Perfect World Entertainment. Read on for quick impressions and contest winners.
Gangstar New Orleans is an action-adventure game for Windows 10 that sends you to the French Quarter to battle your way through the criminal underworld.
The free game is available for Windows 10 PC and has you undermining gangs, battling zombies and dealing with crooked cops. The Gameloft game sports quality visuals that are reminiscent of a graphic novel and gameplay has plenty of twists and turns to keep you busy. Game controls aren’t terrible but could use a little fine tuning to become more user-friendly.
The game comes across as an acquired taste, but if you like the Grand Theft Auto style of games you should find Gangstar New Orleans to be a fun time-consuming Windows 10 game.
Welcome to another edition of Steam Spotlight, the weekly column in which we look at new and interesting Steam games for Windows.
Capcom’s Monster Hunter is a popular series of co-op action-RPGs focused on slaying giant monsters. Unfortunately, those games exclusive to Nintendo devices nowadays. Enter Koei Tecmo with Toukiden 2, a Monster Hunter-style game focused on a war between humans and mythological creatures. Although sadly unavailable on Xbox, Toukiden 2 is still a compelling Steam offering.
A total of four Windows 10 Redstone 3 previews rolled out in April, and here we’ll give you a closer look at those builds, and those things Microsoft didn’t mention.
Windows 10 build 16184 is now rolling out to PCs enrolled in the Fast ring. This new release, part of the Redstone 3 update expected to arrive in September, is a minor update, but it delivers a few improvements, fixes, and introduces “My People,” a new feature that makes connecting with people close to you a lot easier.
Alongside build 16184, during the month of April, Microsoft also released Windows 10 build 16179, 16176, and 16170. While these test previews are not significant, they all add small improvements to the OS, including system changes and several tweaks.
In this Windows 10 guide, we’ll have a closer look at the changes and improvements Microsoft has been working in the past four test versions of the upcoming Redstone 3 update.

Check out our hands on with Windows 10 build 16184, showcasing the new My People feature
Microsoft’s latest Insider Preview build includes an early version of the highly-anticipated My People feature that allows you to communicate with people directly from the task bar. As with most new builds, we’ve gone hands on for your viewing pleasure.
Apart from My People, there isn’t much else new in build 16184 outside of a few minor UI enhancements. The My People feature is arguably one of the biggest features slated for this release, as it was canceled from its original scheduled release in the Creators Update.

Airdrop, loot, and shoot. That’s essentially all there is to it in PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, but wins don’t come easy.
A new contender
When it comes to games that are as fun to watch as they are to play, the battle royale genre is near the top of the list. You throw a large number of players into an arena, give them a bunch of weapons and other goodies to find and pick up, and let them duke it out until only one person is left standing.
There have been a few battle royale titles of note recently, including H1Z1: King of the Kill. Brendan “PLAYERUNKNOWN” Greene created the original battle royale mod for Arma 3 and designed the battle royale game mode for the original H1Z1 before moving on to work with Bluehole on BATTLEGROUNDS. (Editor’s note: The company’s branding for this game is in all capital letters, but that hurts our eyes. So from here on, we’re using normal, “sentence case.”)
Battlegrounds is sort of like a middle point between the arcade action of H1Z1: King of the Kill and the strictly mil-sim gameplay of Arma 3. It seems to appeal to plenty of people, and it has sold more than a million copies since it hit Steam Early Access in March.
