So I got a Surface Pro 3 for the holidays and so far I really dig it.  However, I am struggling with the touch interface on a lot of the games I am trying to play.  Does anyone else have one of these and if so, what games do you play? What games work best?

I've mainly played Command on my Surface 3 since I got it back in July. I don't normally use it with a mouse, and use the touch screen as much as possible. I normally use the keyboard attachment, but on the recommendation from a thread I saw over at Matrix, I picked up Comfort On-Screen Keyboard. I found the UI works really well when you can quick bind actions like auto/manual attack, course speed popups, etc to an on screen key.

I've played some Door Kickers on the Surface as well, and it works really well but I found it makes the surface a little too hot for my taste on the back. I tried AJE and WW1 Gold CE as well. Neither game recognizes the touch interface, but they run fine with a mouse. Haven't tried anything like EUIV or CK2 yet. Commander the Great War ran ok on it too, but I didn't play it much since I'm not really a huge fan of the game.

PanzersEast: but that is thinking too logically.... and Steam Sales are about ignoring Logic

Are you using an i7 Surface Pro 3? I've read that runs much hotter than the i5 under load.

Mine is an i7 with 8 GB RAM. I haven't noticed anything concerning yet.
