Um... you guys haven't seen the bazillion million reports/rumors that it'll be announced at a separate event in October? And yes, these originated long before the September event actually happened. I've read the plan is supposed to be to announce the Mini along with iMac and/or Mac Pro refreshes.

Announcing everything at a single event would've been too much.

Well the point is to compete with the Nexus 7 and Fire, right? With the Apple brand-name the lowest I'd expect is a 16GB wifi model at $249, and maybe a 32GB model for $299-349.

I don't think the existence of the Touch matters that much, honestly. They'll have different advantages with about the same specs, so it just ends up being another option. I can't justify $299 for a Touch but I'd pay that for an iPad Mini, and I seriously doubt I'm the only person out there who's in the same position.

I have a hand me down iPad for my turn-based online gaming fix until my favorite games come to Android. I'm mostly playing Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer and Summoner Wars, both adaptations of popular card / board games. Picked up Ticket to Ride (Pocket) recently, too, since it was free.

I also have Tikal (euro style strategy game with a jungle ruins exploration theme), Nightfall (decent deckbuilding game), and Hero Academy, though Summoner Wars has mostly replaced this. Still pretty good.

I'm Adam_Palma on Game Center if anyone wants to play. Might have posted this before back when I was borrowing a pad and just playing Hero Academy, but I forget. If anyone is looking for a good asymmetrical faction-based strategy game, both Hero Academy and Summoner Wars are free to try, Academy even letting you play online free.

@Adam I just added you up. I've got Ticket to Ride as well.

My Gamecenter tag is: Slapshot82 if anyone want to give me an add as well.

I can't recommend Dragon Fantasy enough to you guys! It's an amazing new-age old-school 8-bit RPG and it's just brilliant. Kinda has a dose of Earthbound thrown into it too.

You'll love it! Not only is it a great game, but it also has some of the best (if not the best) controls for the genre on iOS platforms. I've dumped about 8 hours into now and I find myself playing it every chance I get.

I'm going to guess both of those are Infinity Blade ripoffs.

BTW, does anyone actually play [Adult Swim] games, like Robot Unicorn Attack, 5 Minutes to Kill Yourself, Amateur Surgeon, Meowcenaries, ect?

Most of their games just seem really stupid to me (but knowing [AS], that's probably the point).
