Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds. Consider this a quick update for the dedicated gamers who can't wait for our bi-weekly roundups, and don't want to wade through a whole day's worth of news just to get their pixelated fix. Today we've got an impressively stylish puzzler, a snowball fight simulator, a game that lets you empathize with the TSA, a strategic take on World Of Goo, and a game that mixes solitaire with golf to surprisingly OK results.

We've barely had the glossy white version of the Nexus 4 for a month, and now the 8GB model with its matching bumper seems to be gone. The US Play Store was just updated with the message, "Nexus 4 with Bumper (White, 8GB) is no longer available for sale." This isn't like the usual out of stock issue - the product listing looks like it's been retired. The more expensive 16GB white version (with bumper) remains available for purchase, along with both black versions.

Google's anointed Android tablet is a pretty good deal even when you buy it at retail, but there's a solid deal for the Nexus 10 on eBay right now if you don't mind refurbished hardware. This is the 32GB variant of the tablet, which usually goes for $499. So this deal saves you $110.

If you spent the early to mid 90s tapping away on a Neo-Geo controller, you're probably familiar with Samurai Shodown II. This classic fighting game was much loved at the time, and it's seen a bit of a comeback in recent years on Xbox Live Arcade and Wii Virtual Console. Now this title has arrived on Android thanks to SNK Playmore, but nostalgia doesn't come cheap.

Voice Search is everywhere these days. Google's expanding its Search app to pull contact information, Glass is controlled via voice commands, and iOS's Siri is now integrated with the Chevrolet Sonic. With the latest update to the DIRECTV app, customers can now use voice search to find out what's on television.

The Backstory

Unless you've been carefully monitoring your tech blog bylines for years (or are a devout and longtime Engadget / Pocketnow reader), you've probably never heard of a man named Evan Blass. This has actually been a good thing for Evan, who for over a year (with a long break during 2012) has operated the now quite-well-known @evleaks Twitter account, leaking various phones, tablets, and product names to an eager public.

So here's a new one: a carrier-branded device is going to get an Android version bump while its Wi-Fi only counterparts are stuck on an older version. This is against everything we've seen in the Android world since the dawn of time, where Wi-Fi devices normally surpass their cellular-connect brethren on a regular basis. To make the situation even more interesting, we're talking about Verizon devices here.

Here's the skinny: Motorola recently updated its upgrade page for the Verizon Xyboard twins, stating that they would each get updated to Android 4.1.

K-9 Mail is what you get when you take the default Android email client and make it, erm, better. It made the jump this week to version 4.4 and now sports a more holo-themed user interface, rich notifications for Android 4.1+ devices, an altered unread widget, and a whole bucket-load of nitpicky features that may or may not make your day, depending on how anal you are about how you like your email.

S4Mini-Thumb

Update 6/29/13: The original price for these was $539.99, but it's since been dropped to $499.99.

The Galaxy S4 Mini isn't as powerful as the original S4, its screen isn't as nice, nor is it as easy to find. That said, an unlocked version of Galaxy S4 Mini is available today-only on eBay for $499.99. It's not that much cheaper than the full-sized version, but that may not matter for people with smaller hands or tighter pockets.
