Hello all, I was in a discussion with others in another thread discussing tablets, PC's, and Laptops. One of the things discussed was gaming and the limitations tablets must endure when it comes to gaming. I wanted to make this thread to clear some things up.
Currently there are two really well done apps for android devices (and others) that shine when you are thinking about playing an MMO on your tablet.
Splashtop Gamepade THD - For those with Tegra 3 devices.
Kainy - For those without Tegra 3 devices.
Currently I am using Kainy on my Ace Iconia A200 to play GW2 and TSW. Both are streaming and playing flawlessly. I had to setup a page specific for GW2 and a page specific for TSW. Each page has 20 buttons and 2 Analog sticks (One controlling the mouse and I toggle it to become mouse look) as well as a keyboard.
It's like playing with a completely customizable controller with as many or as few buttons and sticks as you want.
I have even used my phone as the controller while viewing the game on my tablet.
What this has allowed me to do is essintially get a very high end portable gaming system for next to nothing cost wise.
The Acer Iconia A200 set me back only $229 and Kainy cost me all of $2. So for $231 I have a portable PC that can play any game on the market.
You will need very good internet at your home and at wherever you are going to be playing from. The only true limiting factors are how good your internet at home is, internet where you are playing at is, and your PC's hardware that you are streaming from. Your tablets specs aren't that important.
As I've said, I've been playing GW2 and TSW already. Setting up a page for Rift tomorrow so I can try it out there. Then I'm on to Battlefield 3 and Skyrim. Hardest part of all of this is setting up the page layout for each game and that took me only a few minutes to figure out.
So for those that want to play MMO's on your tablet, you can!
Splashtop Gamepad THD for Tegra 3 devices.
Kainy for non Tegra 3 devices.
