PCGamesN Nvidia Showcase posts are created in partnership with Nvidia.
Developed by NVIDIA, GameStream empowers SHIELD TV owners to stream graphics intensive, next-gen PC games running on their GeForce GTX powered rig directly to their TV—and at up to stunning 4K HDR for select titles. The technology, which is built into the latest edition of GeForce Experience, allows you to kick back and enjoy the best PC games from the comfort of your living room with a SHIELD controller in hand and without sacrificing visual fidelity.
GameStream is a game changer for the way in which PC games can be experienced, especially when inviting some buddies over for couch co-op or friendly multiplayer competition. Here are five games worth casting to your big screen TV with NVIDIA GameStream that all feature some of the most enjoyable local multiplayer out there.
Gears of War 4
Gears of War 4 tells the story of several close friends—JD Fenix, Kait, and Del—who must rescue their loved ones by doing battle against a powerful new adversary. It's only natural, then, that you can complete that campaign with a friend seated by your side, uniting to best each new alien menace, ducking for cover and shouting the orders to one another that keep you both alive until the credits roll. This is cover-based shooting at its finest, and that's never more apparent than when you have a chum watching your back.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Featuring tiny LEGO-ized versions of the unforgettable heroes, villains, planets and vehicles featured in J.J. Abrams’ recent Star Wars film, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is, without question, one of the most entertaining games to play together with friends and family members of all ages. The development team at TT Fusion even crafted a few all-new storylines that actually expand on sci-fi film series. Whether you want to play as iconic heroes like Rey, Finn, and Han Solo or choose to go to the dark side with villains like the insidious Kylo Ren, there are more than 200 playable characters in the game.
Mortal Kombat X
Picture your opponent in one piece, a strapping warrior. Now envision him or her coming apart, piece by piece. That's fun when your opponent is the AI, but it's better still when your opponent is the digital representation of the friend sitting on the couch beside you, when their howls of dismay provide a lovely harmony to complement the fighter's screams of anguish. That's what Mortal Kombat X is all about, after all. What's a little bloodshed between friends?
People like cars. They like soccer. And they especially like Rocket League, a mix of the two passions that allows 2, 3, or even 4 players to compete locally on a single screen, or to team up against other teams around the world for a truly spectacular challenge. Every crowd-pleasing goal satisfies the most important crowd of all: you and your friends as you manage sick maneuvers, stage remarkable comebacks, and remind yourselves with each match why Rocket League is one of the hottest sensations to hit gaming in the last several years.
In the beginning, there were four classic characters: Warrior, Valkyrie, Elf, and Wizard. They were very good. Together, they rampaged through deadly dungeons, avoiding traps and overcoming hordes of monsters as they gathered premium loot. Now, those four warriors have returned in Gauntlet, a beautiful reminder that sometimes the simple things are the ones that provide life's greatest dungeons. Prove definitively that with your real-world friends seated by your side with controllers in hand, there's not a randomly-generated fantasy dungeon you can't conquer!
