Can you believe it? The iPad mini has been with us for four months. That may not sound like a long time, but in the tech world, where tablet updates are happening sometimes twice a year, the mini has become well and truly established in Apple's tablet line up.

One of the things I like about my job is the part where I have to play a lot of different games. This is not my default state -- I will happily latch on to games that I like and play them into the ground. The 100-plus hours I've clocked into every Mass Effect installment is proof enough of this....
