Six great games for lazy people

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

#4: LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Batman, and LEGO Indiana Jones

For: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, DS, PSP, and PC

Physical Effort Required: Medium

Mental Energy Required: Not Much

While there are a number of straightforward puzzles featured in these tongue-in-cheek movie tie-ins, all of the LEGO games essentially demand only two things from the player: shoot/slash/punch through waves of enemies and press the continue button whenever you drop dead. The reason the slew of LEGO video games make it onto this list is because it's literally impossible to die in them as they supply you with infinite lives.

Having infinite continues is something that's been featured in other arcade-style sidescrolling action games like the Metal Slug games, but the surprising thing is that this takes nothing away from your experience. No one likes dying in games and the LEGO games are well aware of that as you can blast through levels as The Dark Knight, Luke Skywalker, or Dr. Jones with no regard for your own life.

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.

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.

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.
