Wot I Think: Microsoft Warface Surface Pro 2

I did an exceptionally silly thing. I bought one of Microsoft's terribly expensive laptop/tablet hybrids, the Surface Pro 2. Upon realising how silly this was, because it's hardly got much gameability and I can't ever upgrade it, I returned it. That wasn't the exceptionally silly thing, though. That happened when I realised how much I missed the Surface, so two days later I went out…

Microsoft Surface Pro Uses Two-Thirds Storage For Itself

Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet once seemed an interesting prospect. A tablet that was no weakling, a PC in a flat, touchable screen, with a keyboard in its flexible cover. It made us at RPS realise we need to reassess what counts as a PC, asked us questions about how far our remit now stretches. At this point, we're now wondering if anyone on the planet…

Future-Catan

Here's the splendid boardgame Settlers of Catan running on Microsoft's potentially splendid Surface tech. Surface is touchscreen-mega-PC theoretical fun, but more likely to be built into tables in public spaces than to be something you hook up to your own device. Here's how it could work for social videogaming (in the traditional sense of social, not the FarmVille sense). I'm fighting my overwhelming urge to…

Surfacescapes: D&D On Microsoft Surface

Not strictly PC gaming, but it's nevertheless fascinating. It shows Carnegie Mellon's proof of concept application for running a D&D game on Microsoft Surface and, well, that zoomable fantasy world map is about the most alluring piece of nerd-kit I have ever seen. I mean, I love maps at the worst of times, but that is simple too much. What's even more interesting about it…
