iOS 6 Gaming Impressions

Alright guys, iOS 6 just came out. Any of you updated yet and tried that particularly troublesome game with the low framerate or that other one that always crashed? Any noticable differences with gaming on the new OS? Any games (or apps in general) that you want to let us know about that are not compatible with iOS 6? This is the place.

I've heard from a few people that, for instance, the Walking Dead doesn't stutter as much on iOS 6 beta. Can anyone confirm? If this is true, that means that apple did some heavy optimizing, which is GREAT since iOS 5 didn't run so well, especially on my old itouch 4.

Mods: should this be in the lounge or general discussion? I really wasn't sure.

Yeah I'm actually waiting for some impressions and signs of bugs. On the other hand, I really want Siri and the 3d maps and the Facebook integration. And the potentially more optimized gaming.

I don't see anything in this update that makes me really wanna update... Probably just hold off until I get a new 5th gen... it'll have iOS 6 anyways, lol.
