Has anyone played Mass Effect 3 on PC?
It too dark, and there's that dark edge also hurting my eyes. I try to adjust setting and mod tool nothing work.

Hmm is may have some truth to it, phones certainly are becoming a lot more powerful and getting more and more functionality, but the smartphones still have a bit to go befor they can take over as a main device

Agreed, the smartphone needs to improve in many areas. For instance they need to improve the battery life, because if a smartphone is to become a console they need to be able to last hours on end during long play sessions.
Everything is going wireless. Now every HDTV that is being made has DLNA abilities. If the battery life is subpar then the play experience will suffer.
Also Bluetooth needs to be used because playing a hardcore game with touch screen controls are completely useless. To use a smartphone as a console you definitely need a Bluetooth controller.
Now if you add up the DLNA & Bluetooth controller at the same time you are talking about some SEROIUS battery drainage. I know you can use a HDMI cable but who is always going to be carrying that anyways.
For a smartphone to become a console replacement the battery life needs to improve drastically & by improvement I mean that is has to last with DLNA & Bluetooth simultaneously for 6 hours during heavy usage. I mean like a hardcore multiplayer play session of Gears of War 3. That is why I think consoles will be safe for years to come.

i disagree, for e-mail and getting status feeds on the go it works great, but many apps are really just condensed versions of websites/web pages (Ex: bank apps, IMDB, social apps).

One does not simply compare the PC to a smartphone, Niklas Smedberg. You kidding me?
