    Has anybody found anything worth seeing/having in the "Tegra Zone" app?
    Looks like overpriced fluff to me so far!:thinking:

  2. Totally not true. The Tegra-optimized games like Dark Meadow and Shadowgun are lightyears ahead of "standard" Android games. You compare Shadowgun to Shadowgun THD, and you'll see the difference.

    Samurai II: Vengeance THD is a great little game, very fluid with no issues. :) Nice gore level too. ;p

    well there is always GTA3, great nostalgic fun with this one, and great to play with a ps3 controller.

    Plus Max Payne will be launched in a few weeks (hopefully, been delayed a couple of times in the last few weeks...) and I really cant see that not supporting the prime, given their nvidia connections for android.

    9mm is pretty good. Although I had crash issues with explosions on the last level, but once past that section all was good. I would not mind trying Back Stab, any good?

    Great input -thanks everyone!

    Additional Question - What do you use for a controller (on-screen, PS, etc)? And how do you connect? (sorry - again I am new to all of this :eek:)

    on screen for some games, (dark meadow, riptide, demolition inc)

    I use a PS3 controller hooked up to the dock through a USB cable for things like GTA3 and Shadowgun. USB controllers like a PS3 controller are supported by default in those 2 games for example.

    Pretty much any USB controller (and some over bluetooth after some config with the right programs) should work for the games that are coded for them.

    What's everyone's current favorite Tegra Zone game?
    Or is there something you prefer from "outside the zone"?

    Happened to look at this today and Shadowgun THD is currently 76p in the UK version of the Play store (although it still shows as full price in the Tegra Zone app).

    In fact it appears that all the Madfinger games are that price at the moment, including Samurai II (both THD and non-THD) and Dead Trigger.

    i like the new nvida app that gives you gaming news and tech news. but also picks and new games that are powered by the tegra chipsets from the tegra zone. stuff like Sonic 4 espoide 2,dead trigger,shadowgun thd and whatnot. there's a few lesser known games in there like "demon's score" by square enix it's a mixture of a music,action and a few other games blended nicely with the awesome music square is known for.

    Here is one for you lot. I had been keeping an eye on a pirate based game in the tegra zone which was due out (I think) the 2nd quarter of 2012 - late by anyone's standards. Now here is the issue, I cannot remember the name of the game and it has disappeared from the zone!?

    Anyone remember the name of the game and where it disappeared too? Maybe I was just dreaming it. :)
