Snapseed and ShadowGun:DeadZone Both Headed to Android Devices in Early 2012

Yesterday at NVIDIA’s press event we got a sneak peak at a couple of apps that are sure to get Android users excited. If you happen to own an i*ad, then it is quite possible that you have heard of Snapseed. It has recently won the “iPad App of the Year” award, but is now coming to Android. The Snapseed application allows users to turn any ordinary photo into a work of art. With its amazing filters and effects software, it is no wonder why it won app of the year.

Another announcement that came from yesterday, is that MadFinger is working on a multiplayer edition of ShadowGun. It’s called ShadowGun: DeadZone and it will keep folks busy for a long time with the ability to play with others just as you would any other online multiplayer shooter.  And from what we saw yesterday, they were playing with Xbox controllers. Oh boy.  (more…)

SHADOWGUN Now Available for Tegra Devices, Win a Sony Tablet S and JAMBOX to Celebrate the Launch!

You all know SHADOWGUN by now, right? The game that brings beautiful console-quality graphics to your Tegra 2 powered device? Well, folks, it has finally been released and can be found through NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone for $4.99.

We have had the game for a couple of weeks now to get a good feel for it and can easily say that this is one of the more graphically impressive games we have ever seen on a tablet. No one is lying when they say “console-quality.” The AI (artificial intelligence) is fairly advanced, the gameplay itself has been thought out precisely for tablets, and the 3D environments are obviously top notch. Again, it looks phenomenal.

You can view the game in action through a number of videos here and here.   (more…)

We have actually had a chance to play it a bit and can easily say that the future of mobile gaming looks very bright. We all know that a quad-core-enhanced version of the game is one the way as well, but trust me, the Tegra version looks very, very impressive.

On a related note, what would you say if I told you that we had a Tegra 2 tablet, Jambox and giftcard to give away to celebrate the release of it? Would you be interested? Stay tuned for details as we approach the launch date.   (more…)
