    Gaming is amazing on the Xoom. I'm not a huge gamer but I love me some Samuri II, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja THD.

    All I want is a Bluetooth compatiable gamepad and some emulators and I will be in retro-gaming heaven.

    I hate Pew Pew on my EVO but I have to admit it's great on the Xoom.

    You can use a Wiimote via bluetooth if you have one. You should be able to install this Wiimote Controller app...

    I've installed several rom emulators for snes, nes, and genesis games already on the Xoom and the large screen works awesome for this. Hook it up to the TV via HDMI and use the Wiimote!

    Anybody play monster madness yet?


    Gun Bros is pretty good also. I hated the beta on my phone but its a great tablet game.

    Fruit Ninja THD was definitely worth the upgrade from the phone version. Samurai has incredible graphics. Cordy has great graphics as well.


    Anybody able to connect to the gameloft website? I keep getting an error because the browser can't connect to the wap store. I emailed gameloft support.

    I downloaded tegrazone but really am just looking for something to play besides dungeon defenders.

    What games do you guys use that are good to play on here?

    Fruit Ninja (regular or THD. THD is probably worth the 3 bucks and includes multiplayer)

    AirAttack HD

    Stupid Zombies

    Flight Control

    Samurai II

    Angry Birds

    Flick Kick Field Goal

    Jet Car Stunts

    Cordy

    Gun Bros

    SNES, NES, Sega emulators work great. Also have ScummVM installed for some Monkey Island, etc. games. Works great.

    I am really looking forward to Galaxy on Fire 2 and Vendetta Online. Hopefully, Galaxy on Fire 2 releases this month since Tegra Zone shows at as a March 2011 release.

    I got it. I haven't had much time to play. I got about a few minutes in and at the highest graphic level, the game lags a bit when zombies pop up from the ground. Maybe this weekend I'll have more time but who knows.

    I didn't buy my xoom for gaming but I find myself playing a lot of games. The preinstalled games are very good.

    I just want to get Madden 2011 to work. I have it on the Droid X and love it but would love a bigger screen.

    I got the apk file from my Droid X but the graphics just won't work right.

    Okay...first of all do these forums support tablets? Second, is nova 2 really the only high level games available? The Acer tab has golf and need for speed but I spent more cash on the xoom and lots of games crash. Do i just play the waiting game? Thanks again.

    Actually, there are a lot of good games for the Xoom. Galaxy on Fire 2, Deathworm, Can Knockdown 2, Hex Defense, Riptide, Pinball HD, just to name a few. If I'm right, all of these games are available for the Acer Iconia Tab as well because it has the same Tegra 2 chipset. I haven't heard of any exclusives for it that the Xoom can't get, but if you like that tablet better, go for it. I personally think that it has an odd feel to it.
