Really looking forward to getting one of these. Will take me back to my first tablet, the Dell Streak 7. One thing that concerns me is being an Intel processor game compatibility might be quite bad. Although I might be wrong of course.

I pretty much mostly use tablets for gaming and browsing so I am hoping to check for some opinions. Does it seem to be compatible with most games? Any games noticeably missing from Play store?


Games I play are Order and Chaos Duels, Modern Combat 4, Gameloft Live! and Lets Golf 3.

If there are no big problems with game compatibility im definately going to get one but if quite alot of games are missing from the play store I might look elsewhere.

Of those, all are venue 8 compatible (according to google play; I didn't actually install them on my venue 8) except for Gameloft Live. It seems Gameloft Live isn't compatible with my 2012 nexus 7 or my nexus 5 either, for whatever reason.

I was not concerned about the performance, but the compatibility, as in, will those games run at all or not? my nexus 7 is incompatible with some games and they can't be downloaded from Play Store because of this.

Big fish casino fails to open on the venue 8. Just sits at a blank screen. I am assuming it is a compatibility issue with the intel processor. I have emailed the developer on it, but have not received any fix as of yet.
