Two signatures of the Metal Gear series are the complex storylines and spectacular cutscenes and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, now available on SHIELD Android TV, has both. As the story opens, we find the game’s main protagonist travelling through the peaceful streets of an unnamed African city in a limousine. Raiden is a member of a Private Military Company called Maverick Securities and their current assignment is to protect the country’s Prime Minister. Unfortunately a rival PMC attacks the vehicle and a blistering action scene plays out in which the assailants block the roads and brutally massacre everyone (apart from Raiden, of course) and attempt to kidnap the Prime Minister is a bid to destabilize the region. It’s at this point that you, as Raiden, step up to take the battle to the enemy.
If you’re a fan of “America’s Pastime” then you’re gonna love Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings on NVIDIA SHIELD.

The Indie hit Parallax is now available for Android, and you can only play it on SHIELD. Previously available solely for PC, this first-person puzzle game is a sure-fire hit for Portal fans – or anyone that likes games that challenge their brain power. Developed by two-man studio Toasty Games, Parallax embodies what good Indie games are all about: passion and uniqueness. Truly the only android games that you can even remotely compare it to is the aforementioned Portal from Valve Software and Demruth’s Antichamber, and that alone is enough to warrant a closer look.
