The epitome of first world problems. There are too many good games coming out in too short span of time and I don't have time to play all of them. Furthermore, with two of them being multiplayer focused shooters I'm not sure I want to play both simultaneously I've already made my peace with the fact that Assassins Creed 3 will have to wait but trying to get to a point where at least my close friends think I'm mediocre at a FPS requires dedicating yourself to one game. How is one to choose?

It's no secret that more and more people are gaming on their phones. In fact 33% of all smartphone users are gaming on their phones thanks to Iphone and Android. In years past, the quality of games you could get on these devices really hasn't been up to par with mobile gaming platforms like the PSP or Nintendo DS. Recently; however, there seems to be an influx of console/PC developers porting their games to cell phones with mixed results. We also have seen some relatively unknown developers start to produce some quality titles. Allow me to share with you one such game, Blood Brothers for Android.

I recently purchased the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31a-DB51. During my previous Ultrabook post I spent a lot of time talking about the Acer TimelineU M5. After going hands on with the TimelineU at a local computer shop my quick conclusion was its not a Ultrabook, at least not in my view. It might meet the requirements to be branded as one but I believe anyone who is attracted by the word Ultrabook will be extremely disappointed in what they pick up. The TimelineU M5 is a skinny laptop to be sure however it's still hefty and underwhelming even for the price. I bought my first Ultrabook recently, and it includes a Intel 4000 graphics chip. This site is a gaming blog and I'm a gamer, let's talk about what the Asus Zenbook Prime does and does not bring to the table in terms of gaming. Does the Intel 4000 finally allow gamer to purchase an integrated graphics laptop without sacrificing gaming?
