Tomb Raider, the reboot originally released in 2013, is now available natively on the SHIELD TV

Lara Croft has been raiding tombs, pillaging pyramids, gutting graveyards, burgling burial chambers, robbing resting places, and knocking over necropoli for over twenty years now. If you're feeling nostalgic, you can play the original action-adventure PC game, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, on just about any Android phone. But if you'd like a more recent and fresh take on the series, there's the 2013 reboot-slash-prequel. Originally released on the PC, PS3, and Xbox One, it's the latest full console game that NVIDIA has coaxed into working on its SHIELD TV powerhouse. It's available now on the Play Store for $15. Note that this is a local, native Android game, not a streaming release on GeForce NOW (though the game is also available in that format).

While not the prettiest, "neckbuds" are quite useful as far as Bluetooth headsets go. I have only come across a few activities where my LG Tone Ultras are more work than they're worth (*ahem* bench pressing). Consequently, I have worn mine to death, so this deal is right up my alley. Over on DailySteals, you pick up some LG Tone Pros (model number HBS-770) for $25 brand new, or save $5 on some refurbished ones. These normally go for $70, so this deal is insanely good.

Shadowmatic

Android Police coverage: Shadowmatic is a gorgeous puzzle game of space and silhouettes

Shadowmatic took its sweet, sweet time coming to Android, but the game is so pretty I'm minded to forgive it. It's extremely simple: spin and tilt one or more 3D shapes floating in the air to get the shadow to form the shape desired.

Google Translate now uses neural machine translation for some languages

Much to my dismay at the time, my high school Spanish teacher could always tell when I used Google Translate.
