The Avengers SHIELD helicarrier is one of the largest official LEGO sets out there with its 2,996 pieces. But it’s a baby compared to the Taiwanese Zio Chao’s version.
Whoa. We’ve been getting dribs and drabs of reveals for Marvel’s upcoming universal reboot over the past week, but it looks like the jackpot has just hit: Comics retailers across the world have received previews for 45(!) of Marvel’s new series, and it sounds like it’s a whole lot of crazy.
I want you to buy the Nvidia Shield, because I’m a selfish prick. If you buy the Nvidia Shield, perhaps developers will actually make games for it—and then I could buy one too.
Since early 2013 Nvidia has announced three different Nvidia Shields, the latest being the Android console that debuted at GDC earlier this week. At this rate they're going to need a lot of help coming up with new things to call Shield. That's where you come in.
It's going to take 2,996 Lego bricks to make this miniature version of the headquarters of the Marvel Universe's superspy agency. Hulk better not smash.
Nvidia's GRID game streaming service goes live across Shield portables and tablets today, with 20 games available for free remote play. When conditions are perfect, it's one of the best remote gaming services I've tried.
I just stepped into the future of gaming. Well, that's not quite correct. I sampled one possible future: the one where you can take the power of your entire gaming PC absolutely anywhere.
Last year's Nvidia Shield portable was the most powerful Android gaming system on the market at the time. The Nvidia Shield Tablet is the most powerful Android gaming system on the market, but it's also something its predecessor was not — useful.
I had two shiny new things I wanted to show you all this weekend — Gameloft's new first-person shooter, Modern Combat 5: Blackout and Nvidia's powerful Shield Android tablet. Since the latter comes with built-in Twitch streaming, I figured we'd do both.
What would a tablet have to do to be seriously considered as the best place for you to play games? Native Twitch streaming? Good-as-console versions of popular games? Play-from-your-couch capability? Nvidia's new gaming tablet can do all of that. And some extra stuff besides. You can use a controller with it, too.
Last month Nvidia teased the upcoming release of the original Portal for its Tegra 4-powered Shield gaming portable. Good news — Portal is available on Google Play today. Better news — so is Half-Life 2.
If you've been curious about Nvidia's streaming hybrid handheld, April will be a very good time to pick one up.
Over the weekend, the Avengers assembled in Taiwan! Well... sort of. This past weekend in Taipei, thousands of superhero fans and running enthusiasts hit the ground running in a 5k marathon.
I'm beginning to wonder why Nvidia included a screen on its Shield gaming handheld. I've barely looked at it in over a month, thanks to the Android handheld's GameStream console mode, and now that it can stream games from my PC to the TV at 1080p? I might never open it again.
Starting today, Nvidia's Shield Android gaming console adds the ability to stream gameplay from a gaming PC to your television set. It's incredibly cool. Want to see?
Say goodbye to V-sync, uninstall your bootleg copy of FRAPS and reconsider picking up one of Nvidia's Shield handhelds. During its "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" event in Montreal today, Nvidia unveiled a trio of technologies that could make its video cards an indispensable part of any PC gaming rig.
At $249.99, Mad Catz's M.O.J.O. Android micro-console will cost two and a half times more than the Ouya when it's released December 10. It'll also be six times as powerful with the potential to stream games from your PC to your television set, so I'd say it evens out.
Last month Nvidia unleashed the Shield portable gaming system, a $299 Tegra 4-powered combination dual-analog game pad and touchscreen Android tablet with the ability to stream gameplay directly from a gaming PC. One of those selling points is not like the others.
