    Be kinda nice if you could "Right Swipe" to a secondary customizable home screen so you could have a dedicated panel like that...be nice for grouping a specific set of Apps together.

    WP8 has good games but not enough, i want good 3D games as well like Asphalt, Modern Combat 3/4, Dead Trigger etc. We have a good S4 soc but is not used in a good way.

    Gameloft is working on releasing some WP8 games. All their current games are made for the Snapdragon S2 in WP7. Which don't look that good. You can already see some WP8-only games in Dredd vs Zombies and Guns 4 Hire, and they do look great.

    I have several of those myself and have to agree...despite what others say there a quite a few good games. My complaint with the games is there are several that I had on my iphone that cost me .99, but on the Windows store they are $3.00 or more. Prices need to come down a bit.

    Actually, if anything, prices need to go up on appstore. But that's another discussion entirely.

    More on topic - coming from Android 2.1 I am really happy with games choice. Maybe there are not enough to swim in at this point, but there are enough good games to keep me busy for a good while. I'm sure more will show up in coming months as WP8 gains wider userbase and gets better established.

    Being completely off-topic, Kids Corner is probably the best thing to happen to phones since speed dial!
    My 18 month-old loves phones and Kids Corner saved me from more than a few unnecessary calls/texts/deleted contacts/internet usage

    Shame, I lost that when I moved to WP8. Miss that game SO SO SO much, that it is insane. Very addictive and gross.

    Can Kid's corner only be accessed from the "Lock Screen" or by the "launch" button under settings?

    Sorry to rain on your parade, but these are pretty bad compared to the iOS front runners. In fact, many are iOS front runners - from years ago.

    Windows Phone's best all launched within six months of its original release, and quite a few aren't updated for even Mango. Rocket Riot, Tentacles, The Harvest, Hydro Thunder GO... these were all highly impressive at their launch. Since then, we've been significantly behind iOS and even Android in terms of gaming.

    Microsoft needs to stop diluting the XBL brand with terrible ports of one hit wonders from two years ago and get its head down to attract some competitive developments.

    Gotta recommend Chickens Can't Fly as well. I'm still eyeing Final Fantasy, but 5 dollars is a bit steep.

    Really? LOL. I love when you people complain about paying for apps. you would swear it's 500$! it's 5$! People go. It's a good app but it's 99.c! I'm not paying for that! lol.

    If you want it free, write your own app. Give the devs their credit.

    If you like classic gaming, I'd grab vNESLight, Snes8x, Purple Cherry, Blue Tomato to emulate NES, SNES, GBC, and Sega games.

    Those game are fine but simple, very essence of "casual".
    What wp phones are missing are games with solid gameplay, storyline and graphics which phone is able to deliver. So far I enojoyed rpgs like doom and destiny or final fantasy most.
