- Is it worth ninjackid's buck? Yes

- Will this look good on Connector's TV? Yes (full retina graphics on iPad)

- Are the new controls good? Just picked this up after being completely turned off by touchgen's review and I'm not even going to bother with the D-pad or the split-up arrow keys. I'm presuming the swipe based controls are new, and they work perfectly fine. I don't even have one, but those of you with iCade's are probably in for a really big treat.

Go ahead and "lock your license in", nightc1.

Just tried the iCade controls. Everything is fine! Only thing, when you press the joystick or push the button on the iCade, the virtual joypad and button appear on the screen and i didn't find an option to toggle off or reduce the opacity.

Try switching to the swipe-based controls and then choose the right (not as in correct, but the direction ) option on the third line of controls (hiding the direction arrow things).
