Anyone got a link to where Blizzard have mentioned a Windows tablet version is in progress? Wasn't sure they had confirmed it but most media seemed to report it and I'm hoping I'm missing something (Surface 2 owner!)

Played the hell out of 2013 on my Nexus 4 so will pick this. Got the mighty Bath City FC up from the Conference to the Prem and I'm currently sitting pretty in 2019.

It's not the most complex of games but it works nicely for a phone/tablet in the relatively short time periods that you'd likely to be using it for.

It seems ludicrously unlikely but I'd love a version for Windows 8 that I could play on my Surface RT 2. Please Marc SI?

iPad Air review

crsmithy

4 years ago

This might be a slightly unpopular around here but I picked up a Surface 2 the other day to use primarily for work but also to mess around with. So far I've been really happy with my purchase, smooth as butter and having MS Office on a tablet really comes in useful.

Was torn between the iPad air and Surface 2 at the time of the purchase and it was Office and the keyboard covers that swung it for me ultimately, so much of my day job is fairly advanced Excel monkeying that it made sense.

@ring_piece Hmm, odd, I literally just downloaded this to my Surface 2 at work which is inherently on windows 8.1.

My account with Microsoft ends with gmail.com, i.e. it's the same as my gmail and isn't Outlook.com. I use that to log into all Microsoft services including Skydrive etc.

Saying that, that were're having different experiences and there is confusion isn't the best of signs.

Google Nexus 7 2013 review

@SteelPriest out of interest have you used an iPad and if so how would you say the Nexus 10 stacks up? Girlfriends got an iPad which made me realise how cool tablets are though as a Nexus 4 owner it makes sense to stick in the android infrastructure.

@FiReTiGeR2K Guess and hoping so. In an ideal world plugging my headphones into the pad will route the sound through their instead of the TV. This would avoid irritating cable wrangling with connecting headphones to my TV.

If my girlfriend has to hear "OUR UAV IS ACTIVE!" one CoD one more time I'm worried she might strangle me.

Is it confirmed that the Headphone jack is for all headphones or just for a mic headset like with the 360? If so this would be amazing for me.

@Scimarad Ah :)

I was a fan personally, it meant you could bludgeon 4 sewer rats to death quickly without having to bother messing with commands too much so was a best of both worlds for me.

Saying that I was a massive fan of the gold box stuff too, pretty much what started me PC gaming!

@Scimarad "tactical real-time combat with a pause system. "

So Baldur's Gate style. You can pause it, have a think, set some orders and then unpause it for a bit.

That's what I assume anyway.
