The Pokémon GO launch for the US is right around the corner, but before that can happen, the game must be field tested. Sure to be a hit game across the globe, Niantic Labs needs willing testers out in the field to put features through the paces, and if you play your cards right, that could be you.
Much like Ingress, the other uber-popular title from Niantic Labs, players will trot around their neighborhoods, but instead of capturing portals, you capture Pokémon. The overall objective, at least from what we can tell, is to become the biggest and baddest Pokémon trainer in your area. There are Gyms to train and battle your Pokémon, as well as different Poké Balls to capture new creatures. (more…)

To help kick off the launch of Ultimate Chicken Horse on Google Play for NVIDIA SHIELD, we have partnered with NVIDIA to give away an awesome prize package. Included is a 500GB NVIDIA SHIELD, 3 bonus SHIELD Controllers, and a redemption code for Ultimate Chicken Horse on Google Play. Seriously, if you have wanted a SHIELD, this is the ultimate bundle right here.
Ultimate Chicken Horse is the one of the best ways to play with friends on SHIELD. Supporting up to four players, players customize platformer levels with obstacles set to destroy their opponents, such as arrows and buzzsaws. The first player to cross the finish line, without taking too much damage, wins the game. With countless numbers of different blocks to add into a level, the amount of customization is insane. Watch this launch trailer for a good understanding of what you and your friends are getting into.
Enough talk, let’s give this stuff away. (more…)
Get ready for a party, as the official launch of Ultimate Chicken Horse has commenced on Google Play for the NVIDIA SHIELD. Designed as a party game, with the title supporting up to 4 players at once, the goal is to reach the end of a level without getting destroyed by various in-level obstacles. The twist is, you design the levels.
If a level is made too easy, points are not distributed. However, if your level features plenty of saws, arrows, and other deadly devices, you score many points. Be the first to cross the finish line without taking too much damage and you win. (more…)
Fallout 4. It’s super legit. For fans of the franchise, NVIDIA has teamed up with the creators, Bethesda, launching a live wallpaper app of all things to Google Play. The Fallout 4 Live Wallpaper features an assortment of bobbleheads from the Fallout game, allowing users to deck out their home screen with their favorites.
The overall animations you will see are very basic, with the bobbleheads sitting on top of a table. When you swipe through your screens, the lighting and positioning will change, but the bobbleheads don’t move. In the settings of the app, you can choose five specific bobbleheads to show off, or you can have the app randomize which bobbleheads are shown. According to the app’s description, there are 20 Fallout 4 bobbleheads to choose from, including Sneak, Melee, Luck, and Agility. (more…)
