NVIDIA SHIELD Set-Top Box Hands-On And Gaming Breakdown

In a lot of ways, NVIDIA's SHIELD (not to be confused with this SHIELD or that SHIELD) is a typical set-top box. And in many ways it isn't: though NVIDIA has built its living room invader on Android like the previous products in the line, the OS underneath is merely a means to an end. And that end is selling you games, in every form and fashion that the company can come up with.

SHIELD will release its Android TV-powered console sometime in May with a suggested retail price of $199. We took a good long look at both the hardware and the games that NVIDIA hopes you'll play on it.

Verizon Xperia Z2 Tablet Gets An OTA Update With PS4 Remote Play Support And A Few Other Tweaks

I don't know how many tablets Verizon typically sells, especially if you limit that to non-iPads. But however many of you picked up the admittedly neat Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet from Big Red, check your status bar for an update alert. Today's software update adds something even neater: the ability to remotely play games on your PlayStation 4 over your home Wi-Fi network. You'll need the official Remote Play app and a Dual Shock 4 controller to take advantage of it.

OTA update 23.0.1.E.0.208 also includes "optimized touch sensitivity," better performance for users who encrypt their tablet, improved support for TalkBack (Google's accessibility service for the visually impaired), and minor UI tweaks to fonts, icons, and layouts.

Hulu Introduces Watchlist, Its New And Smarter Way To Keep Up With The Shows You're Currently Watching

Today Hulu has unveiled Watchlist, the company's latest way to help you keep up with the shows you want to watch later. Think of it as a favorites list, but smarter.

Hulu-Watchlist

Currently Hulu watchers have three different locations where they can save and find the shows they're most interested in watching. There's Stuff You Watch, which automatically updates with whatever you've viewed recently. Then there's the Queue, where you save the stuff you want to see later. Lastly, we have Favorites, where you store the shows and movies that you enjoy the most.

Watchlist replaces all three. It's a single favorites list that's supposed to rearrange your content so that shows you enjoy the most are given priority, and those that are simply saved for later wait patiently at the bottom.

Creepy Platformer And Steam Favorite LIMBO Crawls Into The Play Store For $5

unnamedIn English, the word "limbo" can refer either to a party dancing game where participants walk under a horizontal bar or a theological concept referring to plane of existence between life and damnation. Take a look at the screenshot above. Which one do you think the game LIMBO is about?

LIMBO debuted on Steam, Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network and other download services back in 2010. It helped kick off the current trend for dark and moody platformers focused on exploration and atmosphere more than twitchy action. You play a young boy trapped in a nightmarish twilight as he searches for his missing sister.

Sony Replaces Google's Navigation Buttons With Misaligned Alternative In Xperia Lollipop Screenshots

A few images of Lollipop running on an Xperia phone have hit the web, and the most noticeable takeaway is what Sony has done to the navigation buttons.

The full-size screenshots can be found over in the original XperiaBlog post. All we care about is what's visible at the bottom of each. To put things simply, Sony has changed the icons, and not necessarily for the better.

Here are the on-screen navigation buttons on a Nexus device.

And here's what we're shown on an Xperia device running Lollipop.

Cartoon Network's 'Adventure Time Game Wizard' Is A $4.99 Level Creator For Fans Of Finn And Jake

There's something magical about trading places with game developers, getting to apply your own creativity to produce levels that put all others to shame (and preferably without having to know a single line of code). LittleBigPlanet has provided this thrill on PlayStation platforms for years, letting players create their own two-dimensional stages and share them with others. Mario Maker will give Mushroom Kingdom lovers their own chance to thwart their favorite plumber's efforts to rescue Princess Peach.

In Adventure Time Game Wizard, you can create side-scrolling levels from the comfort of an Android phone or tablet. The tools are in place to spawn challenging stages all on-screen, but more dedicated types can draw out levels on graph paper and scan them into the app using the camera.

Flockers Is A Lemmings-Style Puzzle Game From The Creators Of Worms, Now Available On Google Play

In Worms, sheep are used as suicidal explosives. The helpless animals run in the direction they're released in, turning around only if their path is blocked. Seeking freedom, their plans are inevitably thwarted when the automatic timer runs out or a player triggers their detonation, bringing their life to an end.

In Flockers, a Lemmings-style puzzle game from Worms-developer Team 17, the sheep have had enough. Rather than continue this hopeless existence, they make a break for it. Unfortunately, the future is still pretty bleak. Not willing to let the flock escape, the worms try to block it off using buzz saws, swinging meat cleavers, spikes, and whatever else their cruel minds can come up with.

With Sony's [email protected] Beta App, Certain Xperia Phones Can Now Help Cure Diseases Overnight

[email protected], at first glance, looks like a trendy name for a blog about mastering origami, but it's actually an initiative that could some day help crack the secrets behind certain life-threatening illnesses. Folding refers to the way in which proteins bend themselves into various shapes, forming the building blocks for our bones, skin, and everything in between.

Sometimes proteins don't fold correctly, leading to diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson's. Unfortunately, the process occurs so quickly that it's difficult for scientists to observe. A lab led by Dr Vijay Pande at Stanford University developed a way to slow the process down in a simulator, but it requires a good deal of processing power. Instead of relying on a super computer, the team created a way to utilize a network of devices all volunteering spare processing time.

The Razer Serval Is An $80 Controller For Android And Android TV Games, And It Comes With A Detachable Phone Clip

Not content with making a stylish Android set-top box, Razer is also planning on attacking the Android gaming market on its home turf. The Serval is a full-sized, console-style Bluetooth game controller that's compatible with both Razer's Forge TV and direct connection with Android phones and tablets. It's far from the first controller made with Android in mind, but it's the first to come from perhaps the most high-profile game peripheral company out there, and is thus worthy of examination.

In terms of configuration, the Serval is essentially a green-tinted copy of the Xbox 360 controller, which has become more or less the standard for wide-ranging video game input.

[Update: It's Gone] LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga Is Now On Android, But The $6.99 Title Seems To Be Amazon Appstore-Only For Now

Update: The game appears to have disappeared. Hopefully it comes back soon.

Screenshot 2015-01-19 at 2.05.52 PM

When gamers first met LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game in 2005, it was a multi-platform title available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Gamecube, and PC (along with an isometric 2D version for the Game Boy Advance). It applied the virtual toy block treatment to worlds and events from the three Star Wars prequels, and sprinkled on some of the humor we've since come to expect from LEGO over the years. The game was a hit, and a sequel followed the next year that did the same thing, only with the series' better movies and on more platforms.
