Spotify Gaming is a mix of curated playlists and original soundtracks

App: Spotify Gaming

Everyone’s favorite music subscription service has recently launched something specifically for gamers: Spotify Gaming. Designed to “Power your gaming,” Spotify Gaming is a mix of curated playlists and original soundtracks that aim to enhance your gaming experience. We were also pretty stoked to see that the soundtrack for ABZÛ, which is available on SHIELD, is part of the collection.

Game: Q*Bert Rebooted in the Android Store

Q*Bert is one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful arcade games ever made alongside timeless coin-op classics like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. Over the years, Q*Bert has spawned a number of spin-offs, merchandise and even an animated TV series. Now the legend is reborn in the form of Q*Bert: Rebooted, available now on the best Android gaming device in the world, SHIELD Android TV.

TV show: “The Get Down” on Netflix

Baz Luhrmann teams up with legendary hip-hop artists Nas and Grandmaster Flash on this Netflix original series that chronicles the emergence of hip-hop in the South Bronx in the late ‘70s. Told through the eyes of a talented group of young folks, you can stream “The Get Down” on Netflix.

Movie: “Brooklyn” on HBO NOW

Written by Nick Hornby, ”Brooklyn” is the story of an Irish immigrant in 1950s New York who, after falling in love with a tough Italian plumber, is tempted by another man when she visits her homeland. “Brooklyn” premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
