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.

NVIDIA releases 5.1 Lollipop update for 2-year old Tegra Note 7

Before there was the powerful NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, there was the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 – launched in 2013, and still going strong for its users these days. If any of you still own one, you probably can testify to the robustness of the specs that keep this tablet working to this day. And there’s some good news for you, too. This week, NVIDIA released the update that will take the NVIDIA SHIELD Portable gaming console to Android 5.1. Together with this update is the good news – an Android 5.1 update for the Tegra Note 7 as well.

SHIELD Portable receives Android 5.1 Lollipop update

Another update was just released for the NVIDIA SHIELD Portable. This is just an optional update but it upgrades the gaming device to Android 5.1. Lollipop. We already mentioned it arriving a few months ago but it's only now that the company rolled out the latest version.

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.

Acer to launch first all-in-one Chromebase computer this month

Acer is set to expand its product line through industry first all-in-one computer devices running on Chrome OS.
