Maybe you'd like to propose a control scheme for casual games instead.  I'm not asking for rocket science, just some viability or your opinion on whether or not this thing has legs.  Please feel free to tear to shreds my proposal for a touch-driven World of Warcraft interface while you're at it with a new one.  Let's give their engineering team an ulcer with our demands! We'll choose 3 winners next Wednesday and announce the winners on March 19. Good luck!

First the Spice Girls, then Sterling Jim, now this. What will those crazy Europeans invent next? As cool as this is and as great as a Dtoid mobile gaming experience would theoretically be, I find it hard to believe that we co...
