Nvidia is getting ready to launch their new Shield Android TV console, which will allow us Android gamers to not only play Android games but PC and console games as well, depending on the system/service you use with it. Between that and Zen Studios getting ready to launch a new Portal pinball table that they worked on in conjunction with Valve, there is a lot of non-Android specific gaming heading our way soon. Since a lot of people are fans of Portal, we figured giving away some Portal-themed T-Shirts would be a fun thing to do.
Even though we have a week before the new Portal themed pinball table from Zen Studios arrives for all platforms including Android, the fine folks over at Zen Studios shared with us some Tip and Tricks that you might want to keep in mind for when you do end up playing this table once it is released. We also plan to preview this new pinball table over the course of the next couple of days.
Zen Studios is teaming up with Valve to release a new pinball table based off of the iconic game franchise Portal. Taking inspiration from both the original and the sequel, the table called “Aperture Science Heuristic Portal Pinball Device” is set to come to Android among many other devices the week of May 25th.
Nvidia just announced a rather nice deal that they have going on for those of you considering buying a 32GB Nvidia Shield. In order to sweeten the pot and make you open up your wallet to buy one, Nvidia will be throwing in a free Nvidia Shield controller, a free tablet cover for your new Shield tablet, and three games.
Yesterday Nvidia held their yearly press conference where they generally announce their new graphics cards for PC gaming and other goodies which does include some mobile related stuff as well. This year, aside from the ridiculous $3000 video card that was announced, Nvidia also let out that Valve’s game Portal will be coming to their portable gaming system the Shield.
A portal inspired puzzle platformer called Nex has been in a beta stage of testing and development over the last little while but those beta tags have now officially been dropped and the full version of the game has launched onto Google Play. Featuring Portal-esque style 3D visuals and a first-person point of view, Nex is a unique looking game to sink your time into.
The fine folks at Android Police have managed to get their hands on what appears to be a homebrewed portal clone. While we’re pretty sure this will never teleport itself on the Android Market once it reaches the desks of Valve’s legal team , the work itself is quite impressive.
German company, Rumble Media, has opened the doors to their newest site called PlayAndroid which is a portal dedicated to nothing but Android games. This discovery portal is geared towards trying to help solve the problem of finding good high-quality games on the Android Market. Granted the new web-based market helps with that a bit.
