I guess Xbox Live and the team behind the Xbox 360 Marketplace are a little scared of fiery death rained from above. I mean, it's fine if you have a fire retardant umbrella, right? Who cares about a little apocalyptic drizzle when you've got lots of new downloadable games?
My Mario Kart mainstay, Wario gets the lead role in another downloadable classic for Nintendo 3DS, but even if you're not down with the antithetical Mario, there's plenty more in the eShop this week.
I always knew Major Nelson lived and died by the Mayan Calendar, but this is ridiculous.
The guys at PlayStation Lifestyle continue to correctly predict the weekly PSN Update within one micrononmillicentimeter (which I just made up). Check out their weekly update for more.
Despite the people sitting outside their offices with signs reading "Spare change? No Time Left", the folks at Steam have continued to update their storefront with anything but Half-Life 3.
iOS/Android App of the Week
A different kind of God game, The Sandbox marries retro-bit graphics with elemental gameplay. As you progress through the campaign you'll unlock different materials by crafting them from your existing box of tools. Water and Stone allow you to unlock Sand for future use. Water and Soil give you Mud which can be used to grow different plants later in the game.
It might be a pain in the ass to start so simply, but the relaxed gameplay and endearing graphics make for a easy pick-up-and-play-while-you're-on-the-toilet-for-far-too-long experience. The Sandbox is available for FREE with paid in-app expansion packs.
