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.

Virginia available to “Buy and Play Instantly” on GeForce NOW

Includes Steam digital key for PC download.

1992. George H. W. Bush and Boris Yeltsin officially put an end to the Cold War. Barcelona held the summer Olympic Games. The Tonight Show aired its last show with Johnny Carson…… and Lucas Fairfax disappeared from his bedroom in Kingdom, Virginia.

Virginia is a single-player first-person thriller set in a small town with a secret. Experience a missing person investigation through the eyes of graduate FBI agent Anne Tarver.

Together with your partner, seasoned investigator Maria Halperin, you’ll take a trip to idyllic Burgess County and the secluded town of Kingdom, Virginia, where a young boy has vanished and nobody seems to know why.

Before long Anne will find herself negotiating competing interests, uncovering hidden agendas and testing the patience of a community unaccustomed to uninvited scrutiny.

As your investigation takes a turn for the sinister, and the list of suspects grows ever larger and stranger, you will make decisions which irrevocably shape the course of Anne’s and agent Halperin’s lives.


  • Cinematic editing that immerses players in a story told in the style of film and TV

  • A stirring soundtrack composed by composer Lyndon Holland and recorded live by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra at the renowned Smecky Studio (Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive)
  • An original detective noir story in the tradition of Twin Peaks, Fargo and True Detective
  • A striking, painterly art style, steeped in the magic of small town America and the vibrant Virginia countryside.

The Uncertain is certainly out for Shield TV today!

I am a robot. The Earth is inhabited only by artificial life forms now, like me. We formed a perfect society. Our co-existence is harmonious: robots don’t fight in wars, robots are logical. The human race lived before us on the Earth. Humans were emotional and unpredictable. They created chaos all around. Their military conflicts ended up in mutual extermination. The only thing that reminds of them today are their belongings: equipment, houseware, objects of art. We find these things and utilize them efficiently…

The Uncertain: Episode 1 – The Last Quiet Day is a classic 3D Adventure in a Sci-Fi post-apocalyptic setting. Get ready to see your common world with digital eyes. In the 1st episode you see it from the perspective of an engineering robot, who seems to be very curious about the human race, long extinct in wasting wars.

The Uncertain is set to come to SHIELD Android TV devices on Thursday, September 22 on-sale for $11.99 (reg. price $14.99). The game will also be available on PC (Steam) this Thursday, with console and mobile platforms (Android, iOS) coming at a later date.

Today we have Q*Bert Rebooted: Shield Edition.  The Rebooted edition of this classic arcade game has been around for awhile now – but we get new exclusive features for this Shield version.  At $5.99, it is a buck more expensive than the PC version – still, not a bad price for an arcade legend.

Dodge enemies, evade death, and navigate your way through villainous isometric levels in this iconic, critically acclaimed game. Q*bert: Rebooted introduces new enemies, playable characters, power-ups, traps, gem collecting, and is chock full of new challenges that it will leave you feeling victorious or demanding a do over. Both versions are exciting twitch games requiring keen puzzle solving skills and logic.

  • 8 Exclusive Music Tracks By Env!
  • Improved Graphics & Frame Rate
  • New Particles & Lighting System
  • Physically Based Shaders

First introduced in 1982 by Gottlieb, Q*bert was critically-acclaimed and went on to become the one of the most successful arcade game of all time. It inspired home versions, a variety of Q*bert merchandise, numerous copycat games and even an animated TV series.

Q*bert Classic stays true to the original in all its jagged 2D pixel art glory, now optimized for touch screen control. As the title character, players jump around an isometric cube pyramid and convert each block’s color while avoiding familiar adversaries Coily, Ugg, Slick, Sam, Wrong Way and Red Ball. Levels become progressively harder with more enemies blocking your path and the tiles requiring multiple jumps to change to the required color.

Q*bert Rebooted takes the arcade classic and catapults it into the 21st century with 3D game play yet remains faithful to the original. Featuring hexagonal blocks instead of squares, Q*bert Rebooted introduces new enemies, playable characters, power-ups, traps, gem collecting and characters, and new ways to play.
