Welcome to the Best of Kotaku, where I round up all of this week's best content.
Moving on to our Best Of content this week, we kick things off as usual with a comment from the community.
Our favorite comment of this week comes to you from Outrider:
Look, I think it's neat that this will allow me to better play a lot of games available on Android, but that is not what I want out of tablet gaming.
What I want are games based around the control methods provided by the device. I do not want games that show me gameplay similar to what I can already play on a console and PC.
The most frustrating thing about tablet gaming is that developers seem eager to make either casual touch-based games that aren't targeted to enthusiast gamers OR they try to mimic the gameplay already available on the Xbox/PS3/PC but with awful virtual gamepads. The list of actual games that try to create 'hardcore' tablet-specific experiences (or tablet-optimized experiences, even) instead of trying to emulate console/pc games is incredibly short.
This doesn't seem like an unreasonable request, but sometimes I feel crazy that hardly anybody is offering titles in which the gameplay is actually developed with the platform in mind. (Instead, developers only seem interested in developing games with experimental business models. Good for them, but I couldn't care less.)
