Six great games for lazy people

Laziness isn't a crime (especially when it comes to games)!

#3: Dead Space

For:Xbox 360, PS3

Physical Effort Required: Medium

Mental Energy Required: Little... if you press R3

Okay, hear me out before you scoff at this entry. While it is possible to play EA's Resident Evil-slaying horror masterpiece Dead Space without using the game's built-in "never get lost option," for some gamers like myself it's just too hard to resist abusing this GPS. Besides, I don't care who you are, wasting a lot of time struggling to figure out what you're supposed to do in game is never fun on any level.

To activate Dead Space's objective finder, you click in the right analog stick (R3) and a glowing blue line will appear that shows you exactly where you need to go. The point of the feature is to have a little help during those times where you're really stumped and are becoming increasingly more frustrated. Of course, if you're like me and love linear games, you can just hit this every two seconds to radically transform Dead Space from a fairly difficult survival horror game into a non-stop Necromorph slaughter fest.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
