Google The WSJ/The Verge headline drew me away from Skyrim: Google to sell tablets? What, are they going to build their own? That's huge! "The Internet search company is planning to market and sell tablets directly to consumers through an online store, similar to rivals Apple and Amazon, according to people familiar with the matter. The move is an effort to turn around sluggish sales of tablet computers powered by Google's Android software. Some of the online store's future tablets are expected to be co-branded with Google's name, said people familiar with the matter. Google won't make the devices and its existing partners such as Samsung and ASUS will be responsible for the hardware." Wait, I emerged from Skyrim for an online store? Lame.

Let's not loose the main point of the article, and focus on what I think is the most important question for us all : How is Skyrim by the way ? I still need to decide between mass effect 3 and Skyrim.

I'm in my second playthrough - I'm a mage this time around, and have limited myself to only pure magic (so no melee or archery), which is kind of fun - especially since I ramped up the difficulty to one of the highest setting (one notch below the highest).

Skyrim > ME3. Without a single shred of doubt.

Everyone should limit themselves to pure magic, it's better for the world as a whole.

It's really the opposite. Same type of people that believe in magic, believe in dogma. And we know what dogma is doing to the world.
In another breath, just because you like to play a mage does not mean you believe in magic.
Just because you play a fantasy RPG don't mean your head is in the clouds.

It's because Skyrim has support for DIY unicorns, right?

Skyrim >> anything else. Luckily I managed to cut the habit by taking a few weeks off, and OP:ing my both characters (by focusing on 2 handed, I managed to keep it balanced for a while).

Google is focusing on the wrong details...

The problem isn't that people are producing bad tablet hardware. Or that there aren't enough stores for Android tablet apps. Or that people aren't aware of the existence of Android-based tablets. The problem is that Android hasn't shown itself to be a very good fit for tablet hardware, as it's currently written. Yeah, it's a great OS for smartphones. No doubt there. But Google seems to think that simply upsizing its smartphone OS to run on a tablet is going to produce a great user experience. It hasn't -- and it won't. None of what Google is doing is going to change anything. They're focusing on the wrong details.
