Fire-up your Xbox 360s. The free Xbox Companion app for Windows Phone connects your Windows Phone and Xbox LIVE experiences.  Conduct searches with Bing, learn more about and control content from Xbox LIVE Marketplace on your Xbox 360 straight from your Windows Phone. Once you launch a movie, show or song, your phone becomes a remote control to play and control videos and music on your Xbox 360.  Pretty cool stuff.

Hasta La Muerte

Not only does the name Hasta La Muerte (English: Until Death) just sound awesome, this game definitely jumps out at you because of its unique graphics. In this exclusive game for Windows Phone, you are an emissary of death responsible for freeing the souls of those whose time has come (yep, I just said that). If you fail, the souls of the dead will turn lost and cursed trying to return to the world of the living. Yikes! You’ll try to defeat the Scientist and his Machines by outsmarting them in over 30 worlds with the aid of “Soulpets”, or friendly souls, ready to help. As you long as you stay alive and keep those souls free, you’re in for some fast-action fun. If you fail, you and the souls of the world will die. Muah ha ha ha.
