After being announced back at E3, Lara Croft GO has officially been released on iOS and Android. The turn-based puzzle game will offer a new look into the world of Tomb Raider with its animation based design. Square Enix leans heavily on the success of Hitman GO, melding its board game style navigation with the world of Tomb Raider. The gameplay is based around simple puzzles with beautiful graphics. Head below for a full description and a gameplay trailer.

While Rise of the Tomb Raider is still a few months away for console gamers, with some pretty sweet bundles available, Lara Croft fans can get their fix on the small screen for now. Lara Croft GO is available on iOS as a Universal app and on Android for $4.99. Late to the party? iOS users can grab all three previous releases with the Tomb Raider Pack featuring Lara Croft for $4.99.

pebble-time

Update: The Pebble Time is now available to purchase from Best Buy and is coming to Target next month.

Pebble has a long-time friendship with Best Buy, and now the smartwatch maker is launching the first widespread availability of its new Pebble Time through the retailer. Available for $200, the standard 22mm non-steel version of the watch is now available for consumers to put their claim on red, black, and white models.

While the Kickstarter Edition just recently began shipping to those who backed the watch, those just now realizing that they would actually like a smartwatch that has a color e-paper display, more than 5 days of battery life, and cross-platform compatibility are in luck:

We recently reviewed the Pebble Time, saying that while it does have its upsides, it still feels stuck in the past compared to the currently-available Android Wear devices and the Apple Watch. Long battery life is nice, but the lack of a touch screen and sketchy compatibility with iOS hold the device back—especially at this price point.

Onkyo’s new headphone line-up has surfaced boasting a slick metal design, the new translucent 6N copper cable and some nice integration into the Onkyo iOS app. The refreshed cans will come in two models the over-ear ES-CTI300 (above) and the in-ear IE-CTI300 (below).

IE_CTI300-Onkyo-release-headphones-December-2013-01Inside, we’re looking at more or less similar specs as Onkyo’s previous offerings, both the in-ear and over-ear options receive generally favorable reviews on Amazon.

The new over ear ES-CTIs pack 40mm titanium drivers inside the titanium enclosures and the in-ear model will be made of aluminum and ABS resin with 14.3mm drivers. They come with the company’s new “super-conductive,” oxygen-free 6N copper cable with in-line playback and call control.

Both sets, as we mentioned above, will work with Onkyo’s new iOS app, which will beam your iTunes library through the company’s 16,000 band high-precision equalizer.

At this point, we are still waiting for official word from Onkyo on US pricing and availability, but it looks as though the ES-CTI300 over-ears will run you $199 and the IE-CTI300 in-ear set will go for $149, both coming available in December.
