Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This is a gadget I am interested in. I'm basically looking for something that can be a couch/laying in bed PC. Here's some things I would like to do:
General internet browsing.
Youtube/videos. Easiest way to show friends videos, or watch them on the couch instead of my desk.
Hold/play my music collection.
Pull up gamefaqs or other walkthroughs away from my PC, in my living room.
Run gmail chat.
I don't need 3G/4G (don't some of them have that?), this would be strictly for around the house use. I have my phone if I need to get on the web while I'm out and about.
I guess they have games? Are games on tablets any good? Can't say the idea appeals to me since I have PC/xbox/DS/etc. to play on, but I don't know a lot about it. I did play some Need for Speed game on a demo unit in Office Max the other day, it was kind of cool.
I haven't really looked through them yet, but I do notice the price range varies pretty widely. Some are in the high $100s, and ipads/xoom/etc are ~$500 What does paying more money get me? What specs do I need to look at?
