A new game for SHIELD owners (both SHIELD TV and Tablet), is now available on Google Play. Called Pavilion, it is described as a fourth person puzzle adventure game.

The overall layout is a dreamy fantasy world, complete with loads of challenging puzzles for you to solve. As you continue on your journey, the developers hope that you will begin to understand the world in which you have been placed. (more…)
According to a FCC filing made public, NVIDIA may launch an updated SHIELD Android TV console this year. Listed in the documents, the console carries a model number of P2897, but due to confidentiality requests from NVIDIA, not much else is known. Inside the filing, but not viewable by the public, everything you might want to see is inside, including user manuals, external photos, and test set-up photos.
Even though we can’t see what it is exactly, we can make a pretty educated guess. Listed under the labeling portion, we see that the device is definitely rectangular in shape, and that the console features 802.11ac WiFi. Officially, the equipment is labeled as the SHIELD Android TV Game Console. (more…)

If that isn’t good enough for you, try Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for $5 or Parallax for $2.49.
On the downside, these games won’t be compatible for everyone. To play them, you will need a SHIELD device, such as a SHIELD Android TV or SHIELD Tablet. If you have one of those, you are in business.
