Green with NVIDIA!

A new challenger has arrived!  Please, welcome SHIELD!

Look at this sexy mo-fo!

The Titan Trifecta of gaming consoles (Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox) will soon have to face NVIDIA in battle.  The visual computing company will release the first considered world’s Android TV console: SHIELD.  No release date has been confirmed yet in the U.S.  However, I am awaiting anxiously to see how this console will prove itself in the gaming world market.  SHIELD will unleash the power of “supercomputer” technology in a cloud system (i.e., the GRID) letting the consumers not only stream the PC games, but also play Android games and watch high quality videos.  And with a 3GB memory I say that’s more than doable.  NVIDIA’s goals with SHIELD include to infuse PC quality graphics to games available for the system.  As if that is not impressive enough, SHIELD will hold the capability of diverse gameplay like supporting multiplayer options.

Look at that controller how sexy and sleek it is! -Drools.-

You’re probably asking yourself, “What games could possibly make me want to even consider buying this thing?”  Thankfully, I am here to answer that question!  Available on Google Play you will have access to Crysis 3, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Resident Evil 5, and Doom 3.  IF that is not good enough, the GRID will give graciously let you play Batman: Arkham Origins, Boderlands 2, and Ultra Street Fighter IV just to name a few.  And all this in a CLOUD?! A CLOUD!  Think about this for a second…  What is also a promising factor, which I have mentioned before in some of my entries, is that NVIDIA has listened to the gaming world inhabitants.  SHIELD was developed with feedback provided by gamers from all over for specifics like graphics, processing power, accessibility, and comfort when playing with controllers.  Hence, the slogan “Made To Game.”

What are your thoughts about SHIELD?  Is it here to stay?  Let me know on the comments below and don’t forget to Like and Share!  Until next time!

See you around!

“What can I do for you?” ♫

I haven’t been more excited for a videogame remastering since God (or whatever divine entity out there) knows when.  While Flipboarding the gaming section, I stumbled upon an article with a famous female trio: the wonder women of Final Fantasy X-2.  I am completely and utterly in love with FFX-2.  I believe it was underrated and mainly guys butchered it because it was “girly.”  Well, fuck that!  The game was super fun, interesting, and actually a pretty damn good sequel.  I have clawed people’s eyes out when listening to them talking shit about this game.  Well… I haven’t exactly physically done the latter, but just so you get the point.

Famitsu magazine met with producers Yoshinori Kitase and Hideki Imaizumi to get the scoop of such project.  Turns out 2013 is the FFX-2’s birthday!  YAY!  And as a present, BOTH Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy X will be undergoing this beautiful restoration.  Both games have a special place in my heart because of the boundaries pushed regarding gameplay and the story lines were emotive and breathtaking.  From Tidus dissipating away in hundreds of sprites causing me psychological turmoil to Yuna’s Thunderplains concert where she sang her heart out, pouring her mixture of hope and hurt on to the world of Spira…  SO GOOD!

The interviewed producers want to finish this remastering project as soon as possible.  However, some of the data from the original game is not available or incomplete.  As a consequence, some of that data will be eliminated and programmers will have to start from scratch – which I’m pretty sure it sucks.  Nonetheless, I seriously encourage them to take all the time needed.  Both of these games combined have a HUGE fan base population. With that, disappointment could prove fatal to not only game sales, but also the reputation and faith gamers have regarding the technology Sony has to offer is at stake.  Only time will tell.

How do you feel about this remastering idea?  Personally, I can’t wait (but I’m sure you got that by now).

See you around!
