    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of apk files for games like NOVA2, Rainbow Six, Asphalt 6, etc. I don't mind paying, that's not the issue. It's just that whenever I go to the Gameloft site it doesn't want to let me download anything (I'm choosing the Motorola Xoom option as recommended my another forum).

    Any tips? Or are we destined to live a life of gamelessness with our TF101s?

    I don't get my TF101 for 24 to 48 hours (ordered online) but:

    I was just looking in the online Android Market. If you do a search for tegra or THD you get a good list of games. Also there is an app put out by Nvidia called NVIDIA Tegra Zone that points to games they recommend for NVIDIA Tegra 2 devices.

    Set your device as Motorola Xoom, everything that works on there works on the Transformer (same chipset)

    No_u: True, but if I go to the Gameloft site and set the download to be for Xoom, how do I then download without putting in a mobile phone number? Sorry if this is a dumb question...

    Doit2it: Yup, very true. Sorry, should have been clearer - I'm looking more specifically at Gameloft or EA games...

    The problem is that the Asus Transformer has a modified system different from the Iconia, the Xoom, and all other Tegra 2 tablets. See the following threads to learn more:

    gameloft supports tegra 2 on the transformer? - xda-developers
    N.O.V.A. 2 / Spiderman TM Working on Transformer [ROOT] - xda-developers

    In short, you need to root the set.

    This is why I ditched it and went over to the dark side (or light side depending on your persuasion), where every game runs as it should. All it took is one jailbreak (all done automatically through one click on a webpage) and I'm home-free. No dicking around and no digging up forums for clues on how to "root" the mother.

    Meanwhile, I still have the Transformer, just waiting for a buyer.

    You ditched it because of Gameloft support? Gameloft games are just not that good.

    If I wanted the best device for Gameloft games I would still be using my old Galaxy S.

    Ummm? I went to gameloft site, selected xoom, downloaded NOVA 2, Spiderman and Dungeon Hunter 2. They work perfect on my transformer. I am not rooted.

    Got Dungeon Hunter 2 and Spiderman working, but NOVA 2 won't start.

    I never got them from Gameloft though so maybe that's way NOVA 2 is not working.

    Hamlin, you mentioned 'dl update' in your response. Is there a second download that the Scotsman should do?

    When I opened the game up it asks me to download and install files. I assumed it was an update?
