The New iPad Retina Display Game Thread!


This thread is a work in progress!
NOTE: This thread does not contain games wich are optimized for the ipad 3. For example Infinity blade 2 and epoch are optimised for the ipad 3, but not for the retina display. Therefore those are not retina games.

This is a good thread idea. I'm sure the updates will roll in for big titles like Infinity Blade II or Dead Space in the next few days like they did preceding the iPad 2 launch. What I'm anxious to hear about is whether or not applications that aren't optimized for the retina display look like total dog s*** like they do on the iPhone and iPod Touch retina displays.
Here's my wishlist for retina display support and/or graphics optimized for A5X:

Chaos Rings II
Fruit Ninja HD
Plants vs. Zombies HD
Real Racing 2 HD
Infinity Blade II

Update: IBII update confirmed? Hellz yes!
