Survival horror 'Amnesia: Collection' goes up for preorder on Xbox One

Descend into madness.

The Amnesia: Collection is a compilation of three first-person horror games which offer plenty of jump scares and moments where you question the protagonist’s sanity. Beforehand, the titles were only available on PC or PlayStation 4, but it seems like that’s about to change. While the Amnesia: Collection may feature dated visuals because the last entry launched in 2013, the gameplay still holds up years later.

Here's how to order Amazon's upcoming Echo Auto and save 50% in the process

Alexa’s coming along for the ride.

Earlier today, Amazon announced a slew of new products centering around its popular Echo devices like the Echo Dot. While that device is reaching the release of its third generation next month, Amazon just unveiled a new product to the Echo lineup allowing you to bring Alexa along wherever you go: the Echo Auto.

By first connecting with your smartphone, the Echo Auto gains access to Alexa and plays through your car speakers via either Bluetooth or the auxiliary input depending on your vehicle. There are eight integrated microphones designed for in-vehicle acoustics so that the device is able to hear you speak even with the radio playing, the AC running, and the windows rolled down.

Instead of opening pre-orders to all customers like with the rest of the new products, Amazon has made the Echo Auto buying process a bit more complicated. Here’s what you’ll need to do to buy one:

Lulzbot Mini 2 desktop is a portable, professional quality 3D printer

An amazing 3D-printing machine for a great price.

When I first got into 3D printing I made the conscious decision to go cheap. Over the years, I have increased my budget to include printers up to around $1,000, but I’ve never wanted to go above that. After all, how much better could a $1500 printer be than a $700 one? It turns out it can be a whole lot better.

The Lulzbot Mini 2 is quite simply a professional quality desktop printer. With such a small form factor, Lulzbot could have been forgiven for cutting corners. Instead, it created a precisely engineered, open source, and feature packed little machine.

This Lulzbot Mini 2 was loaned to us for the purposes of the review, and I’ve been using it for almost a month. It also came with 1 kg of 2.85 mm Polylite PLA from Polymaker that I used all of to create the models you will see in the review.

A lot of smarts in a portable package

Microsoft Ignite 2018: All the most exciting sessions

Interested in what’s going on at Ignite? Or attending the show yourself? Here’s a handful of sessions that are worth keeping an eye on.

Microsoft Ignite is just around the corner, and you can expect to see lots of new announcements regarding Microsoft 365, Azure, IoT, and more for IT and enterprises at the event in Orlando, Fla. In addition to all the announcements, there will be hundreds of hands-on sessions that dive into new features, services, and more.

I’ve been looking through the sessions list in search of the most interesting sessions, and it looks like there are plenty of them that dive into subjects ranging from Surface to Windows 10 to Mixed Reality.

Here’s a short list of all the sessions we think will be worth watching. If you’ll be at the event, you may want to attend. If not, there may be recorded versions available in the future, but we’re not sure. However, you can bet we’ll be at these sessions to bring you any news that comes from them. So, keep it locked to Windows Central.
