I want you to buy the Nvidia Shield, because I’m a selfish prick. If you buy the Nvidia Shield, perhaps developers will actually make games for it—and then I could buy one too.
Making a real life version of Link's iconic Hylian Shield from the Legend of Zelda may be the most impressive weapon Man at Arms: Reforged has ever made. It required a perfect design, a lot of grunt work in curving the metal sheet, expert embossing and basically melting pieces of metal together to form the final…
The first Nvidia Shield was a gaming handheld. The second was a powerful Android tablet. Now, Nvidia's going full game console. The new Nvidia Shield is a $200 set-top-box running Android TV, but it's more than that. It's a game console poweful enough to play a port of Crysis 3. And at first blush, it sure feels like…
It's been long rumoured, but yes, it's finally real: Lego are making a massive SHIELD Helicarrier, and by god it looks beautiful. Ready your wallets, Marvel fans - this one's a doozy.
Why yes, that is an R/C plane launching off a working, flying R/C Helicarrier. What a marvellous world we live in.
The revelation of Hydra infiltrating SHIELD in the MCU was a coup for Marvel - not just a big gamechanger for their 'shared universe' plans, but also the opportunity to turn all of that SHIELD related merchandise into Hydra stuff. Or in the case of this glass, both!
Well, here's something cosmic to be thankful for this weekend. A NASA-led study of the Van Allen radiation belts has uncovered new information about the invisible "shield" that keeps harmful ultrarelativistic electrons from the Earth.
Last week, Lego released details of the newest modular building, the Detective's Office (10246) which I will be purchasing the instant it comes out in January. In the official designer video, there was an Easter egg, caught by the eagle eyes over at Groove Bricks that may confirm the rumored S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.
Prepare your Wallets, Lego fans: there's been a flurry of rumours over the weekend that Lego might be planning on bringing SHIELD's floating HQ to their range of Marvel toys next year - and not just as a normal set, but a humongous (and pricey) display model.
The Nvidia Shield Tablet isn't for everyone, but it's a pretty solid Android machine. It's about to get even better in three distinct ways: Android 5.0 Lollipop, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, and a whole bunch of absolutely free streaming games.
I just stepped into the future of gaming. Well, that's not quite correct. I sampled one possible future: the one where you can take the power of your entire gaming PC absolutely anywhere.
Captain America's shield is as iconic as comic book superhero weapons get but that doesn't mean there's no room for improvement. Man at Arms: Reforged decided to give it an upgrade by turning the shield into throwing ninja stars. Captain America should definitely use them for his next movie.
Nvidia's Shield tablet was made for playing games. That's what it's best at. But it's also much more. In fact, it should probably be your next Android tablet no matter how much button-mashing you do.
Last year, chip-maker Nvidia entered the hardware dojo with Shield, a weird but interesting Android gaming machine. Its successor has arrived, taking a form that's a little more familiar. This is the Shield tablet, the first Android tablet straight-up made for games. We spent some time with it, and so far it delivers.
Usual disclaimer about not trying this at home and all that but if you were wondering if you could use the Nvidia Shield as a bulletproof vest and then still play with it later, the answer is yes! Well, as long as it gets shot through the screen. And as long as you're not actually using it as a literal shield. Our…
Nvidia's Shield just got a liiiittle cheaper. Instead of the original $350, it's now $300 thanks to popular demand. It'll be officially available on June 27th, if that price drop got you interested.
