NVIDIA Quietly Extends The Free Period Of Its GRID Game Streaming Service For SHIELD Owners Into September

NVIDIA's GRID gaming service, which streams high-end PC games to the company's Android-powered hardware at extremely low latency, has been promoted as one of its best exclusive features. Unfortunately, NVIDIA seems to be having a lot of trouble getting over the last few hurdles to actually launch the thing. GRID has been in beta since late 2013, and was scheduled to launch its paid service in July as of the SHIELD Android TV announcement. Now it looks like the full launch has been pushed back again.

Shortly after the SHIELD TV's product launch in June NVIDIA announced that it would be bumping the free preview period of GRID to July 31st, with a full service launch in August.

[Sort Of Deal Alert] NVIDIA Temporarily Drops Price Of Shield Consoles With Bundled Shield Remote By $25 (Now $225/$325 Total)

Mulling a Shield purchase in the near future? Well, if you want your Shield TV/console/thing with the official remote accessory (not to be confused with the controller), NVIDIA's got a deal going temporarily that'll get you $25 off a bundled console/remote package. And yes, that means NVIDIA was valuing this remote at fifty bucks previously.

At $25, it's definitely a hell of a lot easier to stomach (honestly, I think this thing should be thrown in gratis, but whatever). The deal is on both Amazon and NVIDIA's own website (link). You have to buy both, sadly - the remote is not 50% off when purchased alone, so current Shield owners without remotes won't be getting any discount love.

Real-Time Strategy Classic Z: Steel Soldiers Loses Tegra Exclusivity, Now Available For Most Android 2.3+ Devices

It's been a good week for real-time strategy fans on Android. Yesterday a new game from the Anomaly developers was released, SPACECOM, and today gamers without access to NVIDIA-branded hardware can play Z: Steel Soldiers. If you don't recall, this Android port came out back in August of last year - about thirteen years after the original was released on the PC. It's a conventional real-time strategy game about robots killin' robots.

Z: Steel Soldiers can now be installed on any Android device running 2.3.3 or higher (or at least any of them that I've owned), so long as you've got $7 to put in the developers' jar.

How To Sink Battleships In Luftrausers (And Other Helpful Tips) On SHIELD Android TV [Sponsored Post]

By Henry Gilbert

Luftrausers is one of the most intense games to launch with the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV, and it doesn't let up from the first moment. You launch your small aircraft into those dangerous skies and start your all-out attack within moments, no tutorial required. And while it all looks great on your HDTV, maybe you could use just a little guidance with some of the more opaque aspects of the unexpectedly dense gem. Here are a few good rules of thumb for new pilots:

Turn down the throttle occasionally - Yes, obviously you want to keep your ship above water to avoid certain death, but that doesn't mean it's always full speed ahead.
