by 35 comments

While some might not think it is fair, it surely hasn’t stopped NVIDIA from working with developers to bring special versions of games that are designed to take full advantage of their Tegra hardware and add additional effects and features not found on the non-Tegra versions of these games. We have already seen games like Shadowgun, Samurai II: Vengeance and Riptide GP being optimized for Tegra 3 and now NVIDIA has announced five new games at E2 2012 that will be part of NVIDIA’s TegraZone.

The first of these is the game that you see above called Dead Trigger, which we have talked about once before. This is a first person zombie shooter made by the same people who brought you Shadowgun and Samurai II. NVIDIA has provided a video demonstrating the difference between the standard Android and the Tegra 3 version of the game, which you can find below. Read more »

Ascension looks a lot like the previous God of War games. There is Kratos who is his usual angry self, tearing his enemies apart limb by limb. There are some new enemies here but the coolest thing that you see in the gameplay video is the ability to repair damaged environments to their former self and use that to progress through the game.
