Borderlands 2 makes its way to the SHIELD Android TV for $15

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is probably the most technically challenging game on the SHIELD TV right now, and by extension, on Android as a whole. It's also the third entry in the popular shooter-looter series... but in terms of critical and fan appeal, it's a notable step below the game that preceeded it. Well there's good news today, Borderlands fans: Borderlands 2 is finally available on the SHIELD Android TV (though it's not showing compatible with the SHIELD Tablet at the moment). It's $15 on the Play Store with no in-app purchases.

[Update: 16GB gone] Deal: NVIDIA Shield and Shield Pro $50 off on Amazon, plus free 2nd gamepad

As part of Prime Day, NVIDIA is offering the Shield and Shield Pro on Amazon for $50 off their respective MSRPs, in addition to throwing in a free second gamepad (Shield's gamepad is, by the way, excellent). Normally, the cost of a Shield 16GB console with two gamepads would be $259 - today it's just $149. The 500GB Shield Pro with a second controller would normally be $359, but for Prime Day, it's $249. That's a heck of a deal, and while Shield promotions aren't exactly rare, they're usually either a flat discount or a free remote - this deal hasn't happened before, and offers the greatest net discount on the console and its accessories we've seen yet.

    [Update: Winner] Giveaway: win an NVIDIA Shield Pro (500GB) bundle

    NVIDIA's latest update for Shield - the only Android TV device worth buying, frankly - is out, and it adds a whole bunch of stuff. Like Plex Media Server. Which goes quite well with today's giveaway of a 500GB Shield Pro. With Plex Media Server on your Shield, you'll not only be able to watch all your Plex content, you'll be able to store it on the Shield itself.

    Shield is powerful enough to transcode all your videos and serve them up on your network, eliminating the need for a standalone Plex box on your network. Shield just does it all.

    SHIELD Android TV Update 3.2 is live with Plex server capability, VUDU 4K, NAS mounting, storage access from PC, and more

    NVIDIA announced the 3.2 update for its SHIELD set-top box earlier this month, cramming in so many features and new capabilities that it's practically its own little Android version bump. Today's the day: if you have a SHIELD TV, you should be able to manually update it now if it isn't already showing the notification. Even if you don't intend to use the headline Plex server feature, there are plenty of other goodies inside that should make media consumption richer and easier.

    Plex Media Server Android app appears on Google Play ahead of SHIELD TV update

    The next update to the SHIELD TV firmware will come with a built-in Plex media server. This is a big deal, as it will let people who own this Android TV box use something other than an always-on PC to store their media library.

    Now the Plex Media Server app has found its way into the Play Store ahead of the firmware update.

    Borderlands 2 (the best one) is coming to SHIELD TV and Tablet, The Pre-Sequel will come to SHIELD Tablet too

    Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the third entry in the shoot-and-loot PC and console series, came to the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV earlier this year. Even with a significant delay, it's the most technically challenging game on the SHIELD and probably on Android as a whole. That said, it's not as good as the previous entry, Borderlands 2. The Pre-Sequel has a bit of a been there, done that feel to it: the story is a bit ham-fisted, the weapons and environments seem like retreads, and there are too many Space Australians. If you agree, you'll be happy to hear that Borderlands 2 is also coming, according to an announcement made at E3 today.

    Space Hulk for Android offers turn-based strategy in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but only on SHIELD devices

    Space Hulk is not some Jason X-style reinterpretation of Marvel's not-so-jolly green giant, fun as that might be. Nope, it's a tabletop tactical RPG set in the vaunted Warhammer 40,000 setting. The setting, which features a bunch of strapping space marines stomping around a gigantic derelict spaceship, is kind of like Aliens, except you get to kill things instead of run away. The latest video game version of the Space Hulk setup was released in 2013, and today it's been made available on the SHIELD, SHIELD Tablet, and SHIELD Portable.
