Premium-Inhalt. I’m an American working for the U.S. government and assigned overseas in Italy. Around Thanksgiving, I bought an tablet from Overstock.com and had it sent to my FPO mailing address. When the tablet’s screen died a while later, I opened two Asus support tickets: one on the Italian site and one on the U.S. site (since I purchased the tablet from an American vendor). Asus in Italy merely asked, “Did you buy the tablet in Italy?” I wrote back and explained the situation, but never got a reply. An Asus rep in the United States told me that they could fix the tablet, but would return it only to a family member or friend in the United States, since the company does not ship to AFO or FPO addresses. This would add eight to ten weeks to the total turnaround time for the repair. Can you help?--Rick Shores, Rome, Italy

After having gotten some hands-on time with the game at this year’s PAX East, I think it’s safe to say that Spec Ops: The Line is easily one of the most intriguing and different shooters in recent memory.
