I wanted to get the word out that Crusader Kings 2 plays very well on the current iPad.
The key ingredient is the app Logmein Pro, also known as Logmein Ignition. The difference is Pro is a subscription app that costs $10/month or $70/year to connect to one PC/Mac. Logmein Ignition app is "Pro" with a one time cost of $130 with unlimited connections to PCs/Macs.
Another possible option is when Onlive Desktop Pro $10/month starts. It might be possible to install PC games on your slice of the Onlive server and not need a PC/Mac. I have been using their MS Office from my iPad and it works great. And it's free, try it out.
The reason for these VNC solutions over the many others is these are the only ones I know of that stream video in HD resolutions that is needed to read the small text.
Ok how to get this all to work:
-Get Logmein installed on the iPad and PC.
-CK2 must be played in windowed mode on the iPad so a few changes need to be done:
The in-game resolution needs to be changed to something smaller than native resolution of your monitor. I use 1366x768 on my 1080p monitor. CK2 needs to be set to play in windowed mode, this is done by going to the CK2 settings file which is default located at C:\Users\*your user name*\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II. Change "fullscreen=yes" to no. Do not be concerned about the resolution, you can stretch the window to "full screen" on the iPad.
-Log into the gaming PC with Logmein and start playing wherever you are.
To increase the ease of PC gaming on the iPad I highly recommend getting a bluetooth keyboard and using that instead of the onscreen keyboard.
Try it you will like it. It opens a huge library of PC strategy gaming on the iPad.
