Wave of the Future
I gave in and got a smart phone. I had been putting it off for a couple years because I knew that as soon as I got a smart phone I would never be able to go back and the data rates are still killer. But the reality of my job is that it's stupid not to have one, so I finally caved.
I got an iphone 4s and I love it, just like I knew I would. I used to carry my cell and my ipod touch with me everywhere, but now they're combined in one device. I went with an iphone because I already had 100+ apps for my ipod touch and they all transfer over. I didn't want to start from scratch with an android device when I had already invested money elsewhere.
Besides using it for work, I've been using it to play games that were incompatible with my ipod touch. The games that have gotten the most play time from me are Hero Academy and Infinity Blade. Hero Academy is the best turn based strategy game that I've played in a very long time and when I launch Infinity Blade I'm just blown away that the unreal engine is running on my phone.
Don't be surprised to see an influx of iphone game thoughts from me in the next few weeks. If you have any suggestions for games I should check out, please let me know in the comments. Or, if you want to play Hero Academy with me, my username is Void19. Feel free to challenge me to a game.
