Welcome to the rebirth of the semi-modern age of castle defense. This game was originally born in the year 2001, and here in 2014, it’s been reborn anew, baptized into the mobile universe by NVIDIA’s TegraZone team for the Tegra processors inside NVIDIA SHIELD and SHIELD Tablet.
There’s a game out there today called T.E.C 3001 for Android devices that’ll destroy your love for Temple Run. This game is limited to NVIDIA SHIELD devices, but it’s so intense you’ll consider buying the lot. And don’t forget to turn your TRON helmet on, don’t want to get erased.
Having cut its teeth on the still-successful NVIDIA SHIELD and their first tablet, the Tegra Note, NVIDIA brings the culmination of years of research and implementation to fruition in the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet. This device is being released this season with the NVIDIA SHIELD Wireless Controller and a magnetically-attaching SHIELD Cover, the whole collection of which we're having a peek at here.
While there’s no shortage of slates on the market today, NVIDIA believes that there’s plenty of room for a specialty tablet. Their gaming tablet goes by a name similar to NVIDIA SHIELD, their handheld Android-based gaming device. This is NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, and it’s ready to roll with their NVIDIA SHIELD Controller.
If you’re all about running an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor with Android and you really, really need a keyboard attached to your display, HP has a solution for you. As a next-level version of the HP SlateBook they released last year, the HP SlateBook returns in black and yellow with a 14-inch display instead.
It was expected that Portal would be released for NVIDIA SHIELD today on Android through the Google Play app store. It was not expected that NVIDIA and Valve would also release Half-Life 2. While NVIDIA did tease the possibility of Half-Life 2 for SHIELD last week, a grand effort appears to have been made to keep the game’s release to the mobile platform a secret.
Starting on May 12th, Valve will begin their Android invasion with Portal. Today we’ve posted our Portal for Android on NVIDIA SHIELD Review, letting it be known that the game is, in fact, a legitimate full-fledged delivery of the classic game. If this game is any indication of how - with NVIDIA’s help - Valve will be porting games to the mobile environment, they’ve certainly gotten our attention.
Though the NVIDIA Tegra 4i won’t necessarily push privacy on its own, the Blackphone delivered with said SoC will be all the more powerful for it. NVIDIA and the combined venture of Silent Circle and Geeksphone behind Blackphone have made clear that they’ll be bringing the Blackphone to the market with no less than NVIDIA’s most powerful smartphone-based mobile processor to date.
Think of this as a potential change-over from the ever-growing world of gaming notebooks. While this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense given NVIDIA’s recent big push for notebook-based Graphics Processor power, a leak of an HP notebook running Android with a mobile processor from NVIDIA - Tegra, that is - has us thinking.
