This Week on SHIELD we’re showcasing Kitchen Stories on SHIELD Android TV and SHIELD tablet K1, Definitive Editions of Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide now streaming on GeForce NOW, “Outlander” on Starz, and “The Martian” on HBO NOW.
Of course, we also want to know what’s on YOUR SHIELD, so hit us up on Twitter with the hashtag #twos and let us know what you’re rocking this week and maybe we’ll show you some love the following week.
The Kitchen Stories app offers inspiring video recipes and simple step-by-step photo instructions for easy-to-cook dishes. If you can see your SHIELD Android TV from your kitchen then you’re good to go. Or you can peruse your favorite recipes from the comfort of your couch and then, like me, grab your SHIELD tablet K1 and take the app to the kitchen. Special features like the auto-generated shopping list, quantity calculator and integrated timer, plus the sleek design and availability, make it a very user-friendly app. Be guided through the recipes with helpful videos in HD and expand your cooking knowledge with clever how-to videos.
Deep Silver recently released Definitive Editions of both Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide, and both are available in the GeForce NOW store. Dead Island Definitive Edition and Dead Island Riptide Definitive Edition have been rebuilt using a new, next-gen game engine, bringing a dramatic visual and performance overhaul to both titles.
Adapted from the best-selling series of books by Diana Gabaldon, “Outlander” is the story of Claire Randall, a World War II era British Army nurse who is transported to the mysterious world of 1743 Scotland. With her freedom and life threatened, she remarries a warrior and tries to make sense of her seemingly two lives. Season 2 of “Outlander” is currently streaming on Starz.
Based on the novel by Andy Weir, “The Martian” is a sci-fi adventure that follows the harrowing tale of astronaut Mark Watney (played by Matt Damon) who, presumed dead after a fierce storm, is abandoned on Mars. A botanist by training, Watney has to figure out how to survive on his own while NASA puts together a rescue mission. “The Martian” is currently streaming on HBO NOW.
