The Other Games OnLive Is Making Playable With Its New Tablet App

My preview yesterday about OnLive's new tablet app focused on the controller, because it's the crucial piece for playing a certain kind of game. But the cloud gaming company's making a slew of titles playable by touch input as well.

There will be three kinds of input that OnLive will be implementing on tablets: native touch, a virtual control pad and Universal OnLive controller. The conversion work's mostly being done by OnLive. The exception is with marquee title L.A Noire, which is being handled by Rockstar Games and hasn't yet showed up in the OnLive Marketplace. Here's the list of other titles that will be optimised for multiple control methods with OnLive's new tablet app:

Defense Grid Kingdom for Keflings Bastion Darksiders Dirt 3 Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Warhammer 40K: Chaos Rising Lego Batman Lego HP 1-4 Lego HP 5-7 The Maw Virtua Tennis 2009 Mini Ninjas Flock ARES Exctinction Operation Space Chem Steel Storm Royal Envoy 4 Elements The Ball Osmos Fishdom 2 Fishdom H20 Puzzle Chronicles 2 Puzzle Quest Split Second Future Wars Cake Mania 3: Lights Camera Action! Around the world in 80 days Ancient Spirits

OnLive's promising that this list will grow in the coming weeks, meaning that your favourite AAA or indie title may be available on an iPad soon.

    If only the Internet in Australia was not so bad. While it is discouraging that the games are unmodible, etc., I still like the idea of have a streaming client and someone in a data centre takes care of all the hardware hassles for me.

    And for the record, I work with computers all day so yes I do have the skills for PC gaming. But I rather spend the time enjoying games rather than research test and finally setting a configuration of hardware and software for games and working out what hardware device the DRM has an issue with.
