NVIDIA announced the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Shield Tablet on November 13. Now, owners of this gaming tablet already have access to the new firmware. First reports of the NVIDIA Shield Tablet Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA update rolling out were posted online yesterday. This is a major update which comes next to a new bundle including Half-Life 2: Episode One and the new on-demand gaming service known as GRID.

According to the official blog post about this week's update, NVIDIA's GRID "includes more than 20 AAA titles" and the mobile version of the notorious Half-Life 2 game is optimized for Tegra K1 and exclusively available on this device. This game is part of the "Green Box" that comes as a free addition to the 32 GB LTE version of the slate and also contains Portal, another notorious title by Valve.

Four Shield-optimized games are now available via Google Play - OddWorld: Stranger’s Wrath, Pure Pool, Strike Suit Zero, and Turbo Dismount. Batman: Arkham City, Borderlands 2 and Psychonauts are some of the titles offered by NVIDIA's GRID service and new ones join the list each week.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
