demon09 says:

Because I just moved into my first home and I'm getting married soon. We don't have cable TV or enough money for a good gaming rig, so it gets very boring here. Also, I just started taking the train to work, which usually means long stretches of downtime that could be filled with an Nvidia Shield.
