    Nvidia's "Project Shield" System

    Just when you may have thought the playing field for video game systems was becoming constrained, in "walks" another system to vie for your gaming dollars.  Just introduced is a handheld console by Nvidia called "Project Shield."  With this device, you can not only play games, but you will also be able to stream games wirelessly to your television. The system has a 720p retina screen with a 5" display, and looks very similar to a game pad complete with the curve-like handles. The portable console is said to have "stunning high-definition video and audio."

    Nvidia "Project Shield" in closed position

    Nvidia is not a stranger to the tech world.  If you played video games within the last twenty years or so, you have probably played on a system that uses Nvidia hardware. In fact, the company got into the chip business side of things back in 1993, then moved on to processors in smart phones, mobile devices,  as well as other PC ventures.  The company even has its hands in powering the MacBook Pro Retina and gaming PCs.

    aaaanvideia

    "Project Shield" is a hand held portable device.

    To date, it has not been revealed if the system will launch with its own set of games.  It is known that "Project Shield" is  an android based console, touting games available from Google Play and Nvidia's own TegraZone.

    Release date and price information were unavailable at press time.

    Escape Room Movie Review by Ms. H

    09-01-2019 Mom's Minute Blog RealMsH

    Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not represent those of allgames.com. Introduction to Escape Room Movie Review by Ms. H When I saw the movie poster for the Escape Room film a few months ago, I was curious as to what the movie was all about. I came to the conclusion that puzzles would be involved because puzzle pieces appeared on one of the main actor’s faces on the promo poster. However, when I actually walked into the movie theater and took my seat -- I did not know what to expect from this movie. Did I like...

    Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not represent those of allgames.com. Introduction to Second Act Movie Review by Ms. H Did you know that at one time Jennifer Lopez had a number one album (J.Lo) and movie (The Wedding Planner) during the the same week -- back in 2001?  I think she was at the height of her career during that period. The good news is Jennifer Lopez shows no signs of slowing down. Her latest movie is called Second Act which can be described as a comedy drama, leaning more on the comedy genre.  Should you drop...

    Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not represent those of allgames.com. Introduction to Bird Box Netflix Movie Review by Ms. H Unless you live under a rock (just kidding), you may have heard of the Netflix movie Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock.  The previous movie she appeared in was Ocean's 8; however, she seemed to have topped her performance in her latest movie Bird Box. This was not a surprise to me.  After winning an Oscar and many other acting awards, there was no doubt in my mind that Sandra Bullock would do this movie justice. As a caution, there’s...

    Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not represent those of allgames.com. Introduction to Bumblebee Movie Review by Ms. H As you probably know, there have been several Transformers movies released previously.  I saw a few of these films and passed on some. Each time I watch a Transformer movie, it’s as if a new story has begun. Am I the only one who thinks it would be a good idea if all the Transformers movies could be connected in some way?  However, I’m getting ahead of myself.  Without further ado, here is my review of the Bumblebee movie. Plot...

Introduction to the Destroyer Movie Review by Ms. H Happy New Year one and all!  I would like to start the New Year on a positive note by reviewing a movie that I consider a “good movie” -- even though it has a limited release in movie theaters.  The movie I’m referring to is Destroyer, starring Nicole Kidman which may or may not be showing in your area. I will be giving a general movie review, because I do not want to spoil the Destroyer movie just...

    Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not reflect those of allgames.com. Introduction to The Mule Movie Review by Ms. H I was on the fence about seeing the Clint Eastwood movie, The Mule, mainly because it’s been awhile since I’ve seen one and did not know what to expect.  I’m glad to reveal that The Mule did not disappoint. If you see The Mule movie, you may not observe high speed chases, running scenes, fights, explosions, etc., but a human interest movie that you may not mind watching -- just as I did. As a note - The...

    Mortal Engines Movie Review by Ms. H

    Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not reflect those of allgames.com. Introduction to Mortal Engines Movie Review by Ms. H Let’s see...where should I start?  I think I will start with the fact the movie Mortal Engines is based on a book by Philip Reeve.  Looks like the movie was trying to follow the book too closely. This may explain all of the different subplots in the movie that made it difficult to pinpoint exactly who is the main character -- that is -- if there was one.  I believe the main character is the actress, Hera Hilmar...

     Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not represent those of all games.com. Introduction to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review by Ms. H Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse is a Sony Pictures animated movie.  I made plans to see this movie as soon as it was released in movie theaters after seeing the trailer.  Personally, I would have preferred a non-cartoon version of Miles Morales as Spider-Man -- but it just so happens that the cartoon version turned out to be just as entertaining.  In fact, as you watch the movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, you may forget...

Introduction to the Green Book Movie Review by Ms. H The Green Book movie has been released since Thanksgiving Day; however, I was in no rush to see it.  I saw the trailer and determined that this movie would not be of interest to me. After watching other movies that I preferred to see, I finally decided to see what this movie was all about -- especially since there is now Oscar buzz about it.  Was the movie worth the wait?

    Disclaimer:  The views expressed here are mine alone and do not reflect those of allgames.com. Introduction I will cut to the chase and tell you what I thought about the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald movie.  It was simply a movie that you should skip and spend your time doing something else that will probably be a lot more enjoyable than watching this movie.  When I chose to watch this movie at the theater, I knew there would be plenty of Computer-Generated Images (CGI) which was not a problem. Unfortunately, among other things, there was not an interesting, cohesive, attention grabbing...
