FEATURED VOXPOP maca2kx Metal Gear Solid was a watershed moment in gaming for me. The graphics, at the time, were phenomenal; the story was winding and engaging; the gameplay was sharp and not above breaking the fourth wall when appropriate. It’s one of the few titles where the number of times I’ve...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download December 20th, 2012

Posted on Thursday, December 20 @ 17:00:00 Eastern by

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?

Nintendo eShop

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.
  • Wario Land 2 - 3DS
  • escapeVektor - 3DS
  • New Super Mario Bros 2 DLC: "Mystery Adventures Pack" and "Impossible Pack" - 3DS
  • Jeopardy - Wii U
  • Wheel of Fortune - Wii U
  • Anonymous Notes Chapter 3 - From the Abyss - 3DS
  • Cake Ninja: XMAS - 3DS
  • Castle Conqueror - Heroes 2 - 3DS
  • Vampire Crystals - Wii
Xbox Live Arcade

I always knew Major Nelson lived and died by the Mayan Calendar, but this is ridiculous.
  • Stand outside and wait for death.
PlayStation Network

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.
  • Labyrinth Legends - PS3
  • Karateka - PS3
  • Knytt Underground - PS3/Vita
  • Zombie Driver HD - PS3
  • Burn the Rope - Vita
  • Oddworld Stranger's Wrath - Vita
Steam

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.
  • Nights Into Dreams - PC
  • Dragon Nest - PC
  • Bit.Trip Void - PC/Mac

iOS/Android App of the Week

The Sandbox

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.
