Play Dead Island and Saints Row: The Third on the NVIDIA® GRID™ Beta
  1 / 2    
Hi All We hope you are enjoying the GRID Beta and continue to experience the future of gaming. Today, we are happy to announce that we are making two new games available for you to try. Zombies are all the rage these days. You can see them in just about all forms of media we love to consume, from TV series and books to video games and movies (not to mention our nightmares). And now, you can stream them, thanks to the NVIDIA GRID cloud gaming beta. Grab your NVIDIA SHIELD and see if you can survive hordes of zombies that are ravaging a tropical resort in Dead Island, the newest addition to the GRID game library. You’ll need to use a variety of brutal weapons to defeat zombies of all types to live to see tomorrow. If you prefer urban warfare over bashing zombies—or just want a change of pace after battling the undead—then you may want to give Saints Row: The Third a try. See if you have what it takes to prevent The Syndicate from taking over the Third Street Saints turf! The addition of Dead Island and Saints Row brings the GRID catalog to 12 games, with more on the way over the coming weeks. All you need to do to play the new games is make sure the GRID Beta app is updated to the latest version on your SHIELD. The app is available with SHIELD Software Update 65 or later, or via download from Google Play. We hope you enjoy the new games, and that you to continue to provide feedback about your GRID Beta experience with us.

The original Dead Island is a classic. Steam says I got 200 hours in that game. This is the best game you've released for GRID imo

Not sure if this is the place to write it. Loving GRID just started using it today. Working great from NYC. One issue I'm having with Saints Row is that I can't get the y axis inverted. I changed it in the settings and flipped it back and forth a few times and still won't invert. Just making it known and seeing if anyone else has the same problem.

Iroes, I was having the same issue. Find the "camera" settings in I think it was the "gameplay" menu and invert it there. That fixed it for me. I'm not sure what the other axis setting does. I changed both horizontal and vertical and neither seemed to have an effect. On topic, love Grid!

Thanks for the tip. Works marvelously now and now I can actually play and enjoy the game.

Neither of those performed their respective inversions. I believe that setting is in the control menu.

Almost 100% of my game streaming was of Saint's Row 3 to My Shield. It will be awesome to play it without having to have my computer on. And I've always wanted to try to original Dead Island. These are two great picks.
