My System Specs

Default Half Life 2 and Portal released on Shield!

Half Life 2 and Portal just got released on Nvidia Shield! I just tried Half Life 2 and it is surprisingly nice to play on the Shield. Some things I noticed were that enemies far away were hard to see because the Shield has too low of a resolution. Also there is a noticeable FPS drop when going from a corridor to a large open space like when you first go into City 17 but it isn't too bad.

Valve also added auto aim as you need it when playing with a controller. So far I am very impressed and hope more games get ported to Shield and Android.
