The new SHIELD Android TV has just launched with a smaller chassis, revamped controller, and a few new software tricks. One trick no one much cared for was the one where the remote would just stop working. NVIDIA says it's addressed this bug in the latest update. Read More
Back in April of 2015 — yes, 2015, which is now 2 years ago if you've lost track of time — the CBS Sports app got updated with the changelog showing "Android TV Support." We cheered for the news like we do when apps that make sense to view on a big screen jump over to Android TV, but our joy was very short-lived. Despite the changelog, neither the ADT-1 nor the Nexus Player showed as compatible with the app so we could not install it and try it out.
It looks like someone at the CBS Sports app dev team may have jumped the gun "a little" with their changelog as the app only now, a whole 21 months later, became really compatible with Android TV. Read More
Owners of NVIDIA's Android devices are no strangers to exclusive titles with somewhat higher than average prices. The latest release is notable in a few ways, though. The Witness has been available on Steam, PS4, Xbox One, and other platforms, but it's only about a year old. It's also one of the more expensive games available for the SHIELD at $20. That might still be worth it, based on the reviews. Read More
There's been a lot of talk about the new NVIDIA SHIELD this morning, but no one has told you how to get a good deal on it yet. It's a good thing your buddy Jeff at AP cares about your wallet and wants to make sure you get the best price available. That best price is at Best Buy. The blue box retailer currently has a promotion running with Visa Checkout that will take $25 off any purchase of $100. Well, I say any purchase, but there are tons of excluded products and categories (including basically everything Amazon and Google makes). Fortunately, the SHIELD is not excluded, meaning you can pick one for just $175. Read More
By far one of the most annoying aspects of Google Now and Assistant is that you have to speak "OK Google," before every command. Even though Now and Assistant can continue conversations based on context (for example, you can follow up "Who is the president?" with "How old is he?"), you still have to say "OK Google" before asking anything.

Until now, Google Assistant has been limited to the Google Home and the Pixel phones (unless you edited your phone's build.prop file). Assistant is slowly making its way to more devices, starting with Android TV. "In the coming months," it will become available on all Android TV devices in the US running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher (sorry, ADT-1 owners). Read More
Owners of the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV are getting yet another sweet exclusive title today, the Steam favorite GoNNER. This is a hard-as-nails shooter with platforming elements and a unique art style. How long can you survive? Probably not as long as you think. Read More
No matter how you slice and dice it, bread is awesome. And being bread, that's probably the dream, nay, the Holy Grain. Well, at least if you loaf bread as much as I do. See, I never knew I kneaded a game like this, but now that I know it exists, I can't wait to play it.
In "I am Bread," you control a slice of bread that's just doughing its best to survive the unsavory obstacles in its way. Read More
The last ten years of indie games have been all about reconnecting with a simpler, more focused era of the medium. Retro City Rampage DX does a bit of that - "Retro" is in the title as a bit of a heavy hint - but it also brings some of the more streamlined gameplay elements and storytelling from modern games into the format. Retro City Rampage hit Steam in 2014 to excellent reviews, and now it's available on the Play Store for five bucks with no in-app purchases. Read More
