Nvidia has tossed its hat into the mobile gaming ring. The graphics card manufacturer yesterday announced its Project Shield, an Android-powered handheld that resembles an Xbox 360 controller with a flip-up touchscreen. Curiously, as well as playing Android games, it can play PC games streamed over WiFi from your gaming rig. Then, The Walking Dead has been one of this year's surprise critical hits, but how much has Telltale's zombie-adventure game sold? CEO Dan Connors says the game has sold 8.5 million episodes. Finally, you could press A to revive your pal in Dead Space 3's co-op mode, but wouldn't it be quicker and easier to say "Revive partner!" to your Kinect? No, of course not. Still, Visceral's scary shooter supports that Kinect jiggery-pokery, as a new video shows off.
