Nvidia recalls Shield Android tablets over battery fire fears

Nvidia has issued a recall for the Shield Android tablet after determining that its battery "can overheat, posing a fire hazard." Although the recall is voluntary, Nvidia is asking users to back up their data and fill in the relevant online form to receive a replacement. The issue pertains to tablets sold between July 2014 and July 2015. You can check to see if your tablet is affected by heading to the Settings menu, clicking "About tablet," then "Status," and looking at the "Battery" section. If you see "B01," you can carry on using the Shield as normal. If you see "Y01," though, your tablet is at risk of overheating and you should arrange a replacement ASAP.

Far Cry 4 custom map is totally Mad Max

Did you know Far Cry 4 has a map editor? Did you also know you could maybe recreate a small Mad Max skirmish using said editor?

The footage below was captured from a PS4, courtesy of Usmcftw355.

The Flare Path: Perpetually Monitoring

Close Combat was PC wargaming’s Hirō Onoda . Years after his comrades emerged from the jungle with hands raised, the turn-spurning CC engine was still busy patrolling… scouting… soldiering. People like me would periodically point our bullhorns at the undergrowth and urge the old fool campaigner to “Jack it in!”, or at the very least learn some new tactics. […]

GTA 5 Iron Man mod is more than a model swap, much better than you think

If the games industry can’t give us an Iron Man game, then god damn it we’ll make our own.

You knew this was going to happen. Modders will bring anything to GTA 5 with enough time and talent. But this is surprisingly well made, and it’s not even finished yet.

JulioNB, who’s known for making superhero character mods in GTA 4, is back again with a new Iron Man mod for GTA 5. It takes a script and an Iron Man character model and works some magic.

Worms WMD announced

It's been over a month since Team 17 last announced a Worms game, and so Team 17 has announced another Worms game. This one is called Worms WMD.

In a format familiar to people who have played previous Worms games, Worms WMD is a 2D turn-based team deathmatch. This time, though, there are a couple of new twists. For the first time in the series, players will be able to use vehicles and enter buildings, increasing the options for invertebrate mayhem.

Worms WMD planned for release early next year, on PC and Xbox One. If you're going to be at Gamescom between August 6 and August 9, you'll be able to try out an early hands-on demo.
