NVIDIA SHIELD

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV console now available at the Play Store

Starting today, graphics and device manufacturer NVIDIA have announced that North American customers can now purchase their NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV directly from the Google Play Store. It took a while for what is currently the world’s most powerful Android device in the market to get to Google’s online portal, but it’s there now.

High performance SHIELD games get SHIELD Android TV compatibility

Don’t you just hate it when NVIDIA plainly tells you that your device is not good enough for a specific game? And no, we don’t mean that in a relational/metaphysical way – a device’s feelings is tough enough for that (haha) – we mean that in a “your specs are not robust enough” for this game way. There are several games out there that are playable only on an NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with its Tegra K chip and 256-core GPU. But rejoice now, because if you bought that (relatively) affordable NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV console, some of these games are now available for you. Click on the link titles to download.

SHIELD Android TV now offers more apps, $25 off remote

If everyone had SHIELD Android TV at home, probably most of us would never leave our houses right? No? Okay, that maybe just us. But if you do have one and have more discipline than us, or if you’re planning to get one and hole up in your man caves or she sheds (yes, that’s a thing now!), then you’ll be happy to know that you now have more apps to choose from to enhance your viewing or gaming experience on your SHIELD. Plus, you’ll get $25 savings on your SHIELD Remote for a limited time only.

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.
