If all you are doing are light things, you can get an android tablet a ton cheaper than an apple, if you had to upgrade in a few years, buying the second elcheapo is still cheaper than one apple, maybe even 3 or 4. I have a nexus 7 tablet (40% less than apple comparable size), still going fine and could have gone much cheaper yet.
That's true. I've used to have a LePan tablet, I got dirt cheap, it was running some ancient version of Android but it was fine for youtube and for the kids to hammer away at it for kids apps. It served me well for a pretty long time.
With that said I do like my iPad Air a lot more and it's been serving me well for about 4yrs now?
Never really thought about upgrading or replacing it with anything else. Battery life is still kicks ass.
I could have probably away with something cheaper too but I didn't regret the purchase.

I have an iPad2 and I refuse to upgrade. I don't really use it though because Apple is obsessed with enforced obsolescence and has managed to make the thing next to useless through various iOS upgrades. Safari crashes or takes minutes to load up any webpage, even scrolling between screens stutters and just overall the thing feels clunky as hell. I know a complete wipe and restore probably will restore some functionality but at this point it's not worth the effort required.

We're using ipads at work but beyond that I'm kind of done with Apple devices. Android, for all it's faults, tends to release new OS drops that keep the user interface buttery smooth and rarely destroys performance the way iOS updates tend to.

I have trouble justifying a 600 dollar purchase every other year like Apple wants me to. If I ever buy a tablet again it'll probably be an android tablet and it'll probably be the last tablet I buy for a *long* time.
My experience with Apple and Android is he exact opposite of yours.

I'm only at the beginning of Prey, about an hour in but I am enjoying it a lot.
It's not bleeding edge when it comes to graphical fidelity, but it is a lot of fun regardless.
I haven't seen any bugs or glitches. Maybe I will I don't know. The game is a lot of fun, which is what matters the most to me.

I am hearing a lot of positive feedback about this game as well.
Looks promising so far.
Biggest complaint people have is that the title of the game should really be something different not Prey because it doesn't have much to do with the original.

I might end up grabbing it.

So apparently this game was soooo made for the PC and not for the consoles, Bethesda didn't bother with an FOV slider, but hey they have a workaround for ya so no worries guyz
"This ain't a PC port we promize guyz" *giggle giggle

Regional pricing is something publishers like to cry out about when consumers take advantage of it. Companies however can take advantage of it no problem. It's all good man.

I might end up grabbing this from Steam to "demo" it for 2 hrs, than refund it. If I like the game, I'll buy it from GMG.

It's most likely just a card with an activation code on it. Game requires Steam so even if you can install it will not work til it's released on Steam.

What happens if it's actually fun and they don't want to refund it? Hey, it could happen. Maybe.

I also want to clarify that........... there is no PC port. We do the game on PC.

Since when?
So naturally, a console demo was a lot easier to whip up than a PC one

I'm looking forward to reviews of the PC version.
I'm not blown away by their attitude here though Refunds=demo. I understand resource management, but if you don't want to eliminate one group of your customers than don't do this no demo 4 u PC gamer bullsit.
Release a demo for everyone at the same time, or noone and focus on polishing and patching the game.

I picked up a new Flightstick last year to replay this game before I heard about this mod. My old Flightstick was 20 years old and a few of the buttons had stopped working.
Those are very precise and bomb proof.
I just wish they'd have the twist option so that you don't have to buy a set of pedals.
I ended up with the Saitek X55 when I was playing a lot of Elite
I know Saitek is not the same quality as CH but it served me well so far.

That actually looks pretty bad. And the fact that they're too cheap to spring for the licensing of a Vietnam era soundtrack speaks volumes in that regard.
If I was a game dev and had my own metal band, I'd do the same what these guys did and just create my own in game music.
I've always enjoyed their games in the past. Will be picking this one up too.
