Dolphin Emulator for Android to take advantage of 64-bit ARM technology

If you haven’t heard of Dolphin Emulator or are not sure of what it is really, we actually wouldn’t be surprised. Dolphin Emulator is a niche crowd type of software – originally an open-source emulator for Nintendo Gamecube and Nintendo Wii games on a Windows platform. Now they’ve been trying to bring the emulator to Android – “try” being the operative word – but the project has floundered so far because of the basic lack of computing power available on Android devices. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

BRAWL is basically Bomberman, violently re-imagined

If you grew up in our generation, then you will understand what Bomberman is – that cute game with the animated bomb-laying guy out to finish a seemingly endless number maze levels against similarly cartoon-y villains. It was actually lots of fun. So take that, and then mix it with a horrible slasher movie like “Saw” or “Friday the 13th” and that’s basically what BRAWL is – a fun take on the old maze classic, but very much an adult game for the violence.

NVIDIA SHIELD gets its first Android TV update

NVIDIA is on a roll and it's busy shipping NVIDIA SHIELD units to those who pre-ordered the latest gaming device in gadget town. Not even less than a month, the device is getting an Android TV software update. It's the first ever and is probably the most beneficial right now because low battery notification for the SHIELD Remote has been added. It's one problem that's been frustrating current NVIDIA SHIELD players because the remote would run out without any warning that battery is already low.

Doom 3 DFG now on Android, NVIDIA SHIELD devices only

The NVIDIA SHIELD has yet to prove that it can be a gaming device of your choice. It's an Android TV-powered device which means only Android apps and games can run on it. NVIDIA has recently announced that Doom 3 will be coming to Android together with other games and now it has arrived. Doom 3 requires power and the NVIDIA Tegra X1 mobile processor could handle the game on the NVIDIA SHIELD.

Android Community Weekly Digest: May 24, 2015

Things have been rather slow this week, though it feels more like the calm before the storm. Indeed, we're hearing a few whispers about Google might be bringing to the tablet at I/O 2015 nex week. That, of course, doesn't mean that nothing noteworthy happened this week, like the launch, sort of, of the YotaPhone 2 in the US and LG's continued attempts to milk everything it can out of the G4 brand. This is your latest edition of Android Community's Weekly Digest, covering the period from May 18 to May 24, 2015.

NVIDIA confirms 500GB SHIELD Pro, expect launch before May ends

Last week, Amazon showed off the NVIDIA SHIELD and SHIELD Pro. Unfortunately, the SHIELD Pro listing was quickly taken down. Perhaps it was an honest mistake by Amazon or NVIDIA still isn't ready to make a major announcement. But no need to spend time thinking if it's real or not because we're telling you it is real. We've seen the signs and NVIDIA could only be preparing for a big launch of the 500GB Pro variant of the SHIELD.

SHIELD Tablet + DirectStylus 2 = artists’ digital dream?

Old school artists may probably scoff at the idea of drawing on a tablet, but the more digital ones may actually welcome it (or the challenge of it). But they may not be too happy at the limitations the tablets and styluses in the market bring. But time-lapse videos from artists using NVIDIA's SHIELD tablet and the DirectStylus 2 and its technology show that they can do so much more than just sketch outlines or do basic drawings on the mobile device.

Amazon shows NVIDIA SHIELD, SHIELD Pro, items down for now

We actually now have a glimpse of what NVIDIA is planning with the new NVIDIA SHIELD console, last seen and drooled at by many at the GDC 2015. Online store Amazon put up standard items for the NVIDIA SHIELD and the NVIDIA SHIELD Pro seemingly by mistake, as the items have been taken off their listings again as of writing. But not before some people noticed and took pictures and details. Good job, internet.
