This Week On SHIELD - April 6, 2017

By William O'Neal - Thu, Apr 6, 2017

This Week on SHIELD, we’re all about the game Overcooked on GeForce NOW, the UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app, just in time for UFC 210 this weekend, the TV Show, “Big Little Lies” on HBO NOW, and “Nerve” streaming on Epix.

Of course, we also want to know what’s on YOUR SHIELD, so hit us up on Twitter with the hashtag #twos. Let us know what you’re rocking this week and maybe we’ll show you some love the following week.

Game: Overcooked on GeForce NOW

Instead of family movie night, why not make it family game night? We have the perfect recipe for a good time for everyone this week with the release of Overcooked on SHIELD. This casual arcade/action game comes to you from publisher Team17, the folks behind the long-running Worms strategy game series. If you’re familiar at all with those games you know you’re in for a side-splitting good time with Overcooked.

Watch UFC 210: Cormier vs Johnson 2 with the UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app

App: UFC 210: Cormier vs Johnson 2 on the UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app

For MMA fans you really can’t beat the UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app. For $9.99 / month you get access to a wealth of content including fights that are included in the monthly fee as well as older bouts. This weekend, however, is UFC 210, which is the second bout between Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson. While you’ll still have to pay the full Pay-per-View price of $59.99 to watch the fight, the preliminary fights are included in the basic subscription or with the Fox Sports Go app on SHIELD.

TV show: “Big Little Lies” on HBO NOW

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, "Big Little Lies" is the dark, yet comedic, story of murder in upscale Monterey, CA. Replete with trophy wives, wealthy husbands, perfect kids, and seemingly perfect homes, stories of the haves and have-nots and a plethora of dysfunctional relationships are told from the perspective of three of the mothers, Madeline, Celeste, and Jane, played by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley. “Big Little Lies” is currently streaming on HBO NOW.

Movie: “Nerve” streaming on Epix

Popular with teens, Nerve is an online game that challenges its players to perform a series of dangerous dares and stunts. Having grown weary of sitting on the sidelines, high school senior Vee Delmonico is pressured to join the game by her friends. As the game begins to take a darker turn, Vee finds herself building toward a finale that may determine her future. “Nerve” is currently streaming on Epix.
