Taito’s RayStorm released on Android – Play it on Shield TV Sideloaded

While not everyone’s cup of tea (and certainly not at $9.99 – $7.99 currently on sale) this is pretty cool.  I sideloaded it on Shield TV and it plays 100% with a controller – always a nice thing.

Here is some video:

GEFORCE NOW GAMES

ANDROID GAMES

No Man’s Sky, The Witness now available!

Whether you’re a brand new Shield TV owner or a proud owner of an Original Shield TV, you have two new games available for your little black box.

In The Witness, you wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you.

You don’t remember who you are, and you don’t remember how you got here, but there’s one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home.

The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and TONS of puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. There’s no filler; each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. So, this is a game full of ideas.

The Witness is available from the Google Play store for $19.99 ($20 off the Steam price).  Get it on Google Play, check it out more on Steam.

Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and life forms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man’s Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you’ll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again.

No Man’s Sky is available for $59.99 on GeForce NOW and includes a digital key for Steam.  Check it out at NVidia or on Steam.

NVidia Shield Indie Spotlight: New Games on GeForce NOW

A little late on this news, but figured “better late than never”…

 

NVidia is pleased to announce the release of several unique indie games today on SHIELD. Lumo, Lumini, Poncho, Cloudbuilt, and Syndrome are all available in the GeForce NOW store, and you can grab them at significant discounts for a limited time. And they will be adding Aragami very soon.

Spooky Streaming Sale – Up to 70% off GeForce NOW Titles

No tricks – just treats – on a selection of Geforce NOW “Buy and Play Instantly” titles.

From navigating through a creepy hotel in the soon-to-be-released The Guest, to surviving a zombie infested paradise in Dead Island, there are plenty of reasons to take advantage of these spooktacular deals.

I’ve recommended many of these in the past – now you can get these for a bargain price.

Additionally, Contrast (Steam), a puzzle/platform game where you can move between a fantastic 3D world and a mysterious shadowy universe in 2D in the blink of an eye, will be available for SHIELD tablets starting on Thursday, October 27.

Already available on SHIELD Android TV, this game universe blurs the boundaries between showmanship, magic, intrigue and deception as you play Dawn, the imaginary friend of a young girl named Didi. In it, you have the power to slip from the 3D dreamscape into the parallel 2D shadow world bound to it. Cast light on a shadowy story by manipulating light sources in the 3D world to distort, enlarge or stretch the 2D shadow world. Manipulating and shifting between light and shadow will be the key element that you will need to use to solve our world of shadow-based puzzles and help progress Didi’s story.

Shield Spotlight: Alpha Protocol

GeForce NOW “Included with Membership”
Single Player / Rated M / Steam Value: $14.99

This edition of Shield Spotlight we look at the espionage RPG action title Alpha Protocol.

Originally released in 2010 and developed by Obsidian Entertainment (Pillars of Eternity, South Park: Stick of Truth, Fallout: New Vegas), Alpha Protocol brings us a new slant in action RPGs; the spy thriller.

Here is a bunch of play I did on the PC …

You play Michael Thorton (voiced by the venerable Kevin Bacon) a talented-yet-ostrocized government agent.  To stop an international catastrophe, Thorton breaks ties with his organization and handle the issue himself.  Aided by various sympathetic handlers, Thorton sets off on mission after mission trying to reach the end goal.
