Casual Sports Favorite Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings Is Now Available On SHIELD Android TV For Twenty Bucks

Baseball games tend to veer on the side of "simulator" sports titles - they've been getting progressively more complex, and more technically taxing, since the 16-bit days when players stopped looking like a collection of squares. The latest high-profile game to hit NVIDIA's SHIELD Android TV device bucks that trend with a setup tuned for quick play that emphasizes fun over everything else. Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings combines cartoony visuals and an unlicensed feel with surprisingly deep physics and a ton of options. It's available on the Play Store now for the high price of $20, and unfortunately, it's only compatible with the SHIELD TV.

CyanogenMod 13 (Android 6.0) Nightlies Come To The Zenfone 2, SHIELD Portable, And AT&T, T-Mobile, And Sprint Versions Of The Galaxy S III

The Galaxy S III, first released back in 2012, only has official software support up to Android 4.3. No matter: the folks at the CyanogenMod development team are keeping the device alive long after Samsung threw in the towel. Today the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint variants of the GSIII all get their very first nightly ROM builds for CyanogenMod 13, which is based on Android 6.0. You can find them at the d2att, d2tmo, and d2spr listings on the CM download page, respectively.

In contrast, Asus has already promised a Marshmallow build for the Zenfone 2, which is less than a year old at this point.

[Update: Winners] We Have 25 Codes For Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance For SHIELD Android TV To Give Away Courtesy of NVIDIA

When it comes to iconic video games, there are few that stand out more than the Metal Gear series. I was instantly hooked when I first played Metal Gear Solid, and have been a huge fan of the franchise since. While Solid Snake is basically the character who makes the whole thing, I learned to appreciate and even like Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (after my initial irritation that the game wasn't playable as Snake). It took me a while to get there, but I finally did.

I was happy to see him get his own game as a cyborg ninja in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, though I never actually got around to playing that title on a traditional console.

Interdimensional First-Person Puzzler 'Parallax' Is Now Available For SHIELD Devices

NVIDIA continues to hog some of the most distinctive games on Android for itself with the release of Parallax for SHIELD devices. It's a little like Portal, but when you go through a "portal" you're in a different dimension where black is white (literally). There are 32 levels of this, and it looks very neat.

NVIDIA's SHIELD Android TV Marshmallow Update Is Rolling Out Now

The SHIELD TV is the clear winner among Android TV devices, even if that is a very short field. The high-powered set-top-box gives a better experience than both the Nexus Player and the Razer Forge TV... which remain the only other stand-alone Android TV devices available. Today the SHIELD gets even better, because NVIDIA is pushing out the Marshmallow update to its hardware. NVIDIA updates usually go out all at once, so if you own a SHIELD, you should be able to start the download right now.

The biggest addition for the SHIELD is adoptable storage, which lets users reformat a MicroSD card into semi-permanent primary storage that can be used to download apps and other files directly to the device.

Two Weeks Later, NVIDIA Resumes The Android 6.0 Upgrade For The SHIELD Tablet, This Time With Working Wi-Fi

NVIDIA tends to be very diligent when it comes to upgrading its first-party Android hardware. Earlier this month the company sent out an over-the-air update for the SHIELD Tablet, bumping the mostly-stock software up to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A day later it halted the update, because early users were reporting that the new software made the tablet's Wi-Fi inoperable... which is kind of a big deal, especially when most of your tablets are Wi-Fi only. Today the problem has apparently been fixed, and the update is being resumed.

The news was posted on NVIDIA's official forum, which remains quite active.

NVIDIA Gives The Original SHIELD Tablet Some Marshmallow Love With Update 4.0 [Update x2]

NVIDIA rolled out the Marshmallow update to the SHIELD K1 tablet late last year, but what of the shockingly similar original SHIELD Tablet? It was left to suffer on Lollipop. At the time, NVIDIA said we'd see an update in early 2016. Maybe this isn't as early as owners hoped, but the Marshmallow update is now rolling out.
