Still love my Kindle Fire, but I read a lot....so......

Yup. Use a Kindle Paperwhite for reading. Use a Samsung Galaxy Pro 12.2 (Got myself for Christmas) to play Hearthstone, watch Amazon Prime, and look up things online while sitting on the couch watching movies or whatever. I also use it to write as I have a Logitech keyboard/case thing on it. Also, it works as a wireless keyboard for my XBone so I don't have to do the annoying joystick letter find when trying to message someone or put in passwords. I do most of my heavy computing at my desk on my gaming PC. (During which my tablet functions as a second screen to look up WoW bosses or whatever.)

The thing I don't use anymore is my laptop. It's too big and heavy for using on the couch without some type of lap desk, it takes too long to boot just to look up an actor on IMDB (or it's too loud and power hungry to leave on), and it's just all around a big old dust collector right now. Granted it's an 18 inch, SLI'd monster of a gaming laptop, but I also detest my wife's Macbook Air too. (Or whatever it's called.)

For some the laptop is in that perfect place, covers everything and productivity is needed. Since we are gamers we mostly have a desktop, we probably have a smart phone so where do tabs and laptops fit in. If you get an entertainment tab then where does a laptop fit in?

My mother in law had a very small dell win 7 pc, I walked away much more impressed than I figured I would. I only have a large laptop work given, good for what I do for work. But outside of that, I know I don't want that big of a laptop anymore. I was looking at those ASUS Transformers and they seem perfect, but I had a boss who had both the Android and Win8 version and thought they were junk, so I wait for a newer generation. But that size imo gets to your point of many laptops for home use do now feel too big. One I don't agree with is boot-time, I sleep my pc's, there is a 2 second boot. I think the mini-laptops don't have that bulk feel and are good tweaners for basic productivity and entertainment. That said, I bought a Keyboard case for my Tab and so far so good, turned that into my home finance laptop replacement system. But a bit early to tell long term.

I do feel the more I use an Android, the more MS better wake up and start working on a brand new Home O/S, they are being lapped. Just another vision misstep by them imo.

Wasteland is sitting there with the best price so far. See there is a big balance patch coming, so I don't want to play until then. So do you think your are lucky applies. Cheaper today? Or cheaper when the patch comes out?

I think EA has forgotten about DA:I.

Wolf sat there (may still be at $20), but it's been out a while and seems like it should be at least another $5 cheaper. Sort of how it was a long wait for AC Black Flag to get to below $16.

But Wasteland and Wolf... debating. Goes without saying, it's not like I don't have a backlog from here to Seattle.

Bought a handful so far, but Thanksgiving was to this point much better, deeper discounts on the same darn games.

Article is too slanted though for a boss to read and see it nothing more then they want to be left alone. Open Office bad, working at home best. Sure I love working at home it's like 1/2 work. So they hate the most intrusive and love the least intrusive, surprise. I like more money than less money as well. News at 11.

That said, I never worked in a setup like described, I've walked through a few, yes not my personal choice, but again see above. Duh.

Considering this game is not much different than what you can do in GTA4-5, actually GTA probably being worse, I find it a joke that people come out of their quiet caves to complain about a game that hasn't even been released yet.

Tell me, you couldn't make that exact same trailer in GTA 4 or 5?? Heck, GTA could do that plus show him getting head in a car, then shortly after, killing the prostitute, and getting his money back. But that is OK right?

Is it because the dude wears a trench coat and it brings back thoughts of Columbine?

Can you wear a trench coat in GTA 5? I just assume so, so even that angle would get shot down (pun).

I like my tab, I just don't need to update it as often as the industry may want me to. Nothing more than that.

I don't understand the controversy. We've been murdering pixel people in games for a lot of years. Why is a game that doesn't justify it somehow more objectionable than one that candy coats it and tells you you're the good guy for doing it?

Because moral crusaders believe people are inherently weak and will internalize the lessons of anything they read, listen to or play. And this time, the moral crusaders are on the far-left, and leftists already largely believe that other humans are weak, so it's a natural fit.

Everybody does this... assumes the other guy is the asshole. You get it... they don't. For example every one of us from time to time is an asshole driver, but rarely put themselves in that role.

But it is correct there are different freedoms on where things like Freedom of Speech fall. Places of mass attendance vs towards a gov't, vs speaking on behalf of a company vs personal. Since this is fantasy it doesn't fall into these realms. It isn't putting people at risk (like airport), it has nothing to do with gov't/corporation and if anything it falls into personal, which has thee most freedoms of speech.

Speech however isn't fantasy where as everything in a game is. WITH one large caveat to those that want some censorship. Places like STEAM etc do have a right to not sell it and that is good and fine. Steam could have not sold this game and I would have been fine with it. I would be more un-fine if they couldn't make the game at all and try to sell it on their own personal site. I assume if you make something that controversial, that will be the only place you will be able to sell it, like underground books.

The only logic that works at this time is it isn't real, so do you police fantasy? If so then we have a problem with imagination and dreams.

Right, but then we police creativity in one way but not the other.
Video game sex is a no no but killing is alright?
Everyone likes to throw the free speech argument around but it is all skewed anyways.
I still find it interesting how sexuality is considered a lot more offensive than killing.
Since it's all pixels anyways so why does it matter?

Right. Church Lady lost the battle with killing pixels, but hasn't lost the battle with fucking pixels, so they hold on to whatever they can.

That said... the weird thing is a Death Race 2000 / Carmageddon game doesn't affect me the same way. It must be the cheesy humor from the old movie that makes it feel different... which makes it more fantasy-like than realistic sadism.

Well we don't know the total sense of humor for this game, I will say I did chuckle at a part of the official trailer.

I want those rape sims to be greenlit next please
They are just pixels so should be no big deal right?

I guess so, in my book of nasties as bad as rape is, killing is still a notch worse. You can't put logic to this because we are all pixel killers and really what can be worse? Nothing, the rest is some type of perception based around broken logic, the only thing happening is one has been desensitized while another hasn't. We can't even have a lot of fucking going on in games. That can't be worse than killing. It is all broken logic.

If you believe in the same morals in real life as you do for pixels in fantasy, good for you and being a frequent member of BN's is a strange choice since a large part of the games the report on are killing pixel simulators.

The only logic that works at this time is it isn't real, so do you police fantasy? If so then we have a problem with imagination and dreams.

The parental generation of this professor said the same things about the professors generation. You'd think a teacher would see the revolving use of words like "kids these days", they've said it since the dawn of time. Lets get it together people. And if it is "kids today" who is leading and teaching them... yes... "Adults these days".

i think that this is exactly the reason that esports are actually a superior global medium for competition. because there IS no physical barrier to entry. the olympics are about genetics.

If a lot of people played games competitively, the cream will still rise and there will be a physical/mental reason why. So again another genetics win. Bastards never lose.

It gets to the point where you have purchased everything, either stuff you wanted, stuff that was cheap, or all of the heavily discounted really good games.

Now it is just new new stuff that is 10% off - not a big deal, and garbage......

Yeah my guess is many of us are in that bucket.

As for DA:I imo they haven't patched it yet. Their dicking us, so I'll be a dick back, fuck it's EA.
