    I'm waiting for mine tomorrow, what kind of games are you guy's running or recommend... I played an have shadowgun, samurai 2, and dead Trigger (plus many more) I know it will be a big difference compared to my DROID 3 but is it worth picking up the same game.

    I'm playing Dead Trigger now.

    It's difficult getting used to the on-screen controls, but they are responsive and the game runs flawlessly.

    I'm looking around at Bluetooth gamepads because of it. I tried mouse+keyboard, but no such luck.

    I also installed Dark Meadow: The Pact, but while it looks and runs great I don't like the control schema at all.

    I installed Zen Pinball HD as well. It looks and plays beautifully.

    Everything else I'm running predates Tegra 3.

    I was fortunate in that I had Jury duty two days after mine arrived, so I had a day of uninterrupted playing/configuring mine.

    One of the cool features of ICS is the ability to disable apps. It makes them not show up anymore, even though they are still there.
    It may not free up space like a true delete would, but that's fine as long as they aren't active at all.

    hehe, yeah I'm always down for more weapons! :D

    I have to tell you, after getting a Nexus 7, I came really close to returning this tablet, but now I'm glad I didn't.

    Gaming is awesome on this tablet!

    This thing runs all the Tegra 3 stuff and doesn't even heat up much.

    I'm constantly amazed that I'm gaming on something so thin and lightweight.

    I haven't yet.
    I suck with the analog sticks on a controller, so I'm using the on screen analog controls as a training method until I find out who has the best BT controller.

    I'm an old PC gamer historically, so I haven't picked up the knack of newer controllers.

    Been playing Heroes Call THD...it's about as close to Diablo, Fate, or Torchlight as you're gonna get right now.

    Windup Knight is also a great little one that will run on about anything from what I'm seeing.

    I was playing the Sonic game that was released a few months ago on my phone, but it was really hard to control on the Galaxy Nexus. I'm thinking about giving it a go on the tablet, and then buying the second episode. Anyone tried it?

    I wish there was a way to transfer saves from one device to another, you know?

    World of Goo is a favorite of mine, too. I guess I like the simpler games when it comes to phone and tablet-- stuff you can pick up from and leave whenever you want to, and leave the shooters for the PC. lol.
