The Download February 21st, 2013

Every week I write something semi-anti-download. I guess I'm just worried about the reality that we are beginning to grasp less and less for our dollar. Video games are always on the cutting edge of technology... hell, video games ARE the cutting edge of technology, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that they're also embracing the all-digital future this way. With the PS4 still supporting disc-based media, how much longer will this house of cards last?
Should we all embrace the future and accept the license agreements that stand between us and amazing games? Let's get to this week's releases:
Do you like hunting monsters? Are you Japanese? Maybe you're already playing Capcom's demo for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U. You're not? Hurry!
This week's XBLA update tallies up not one, but two games! That's a new Download record. What could possibly come next?
If you need more on the newly added software for PlayStation platforms, PSLS's weekly PSN update is my source for The Download and you don't need to be a fanboy to visit.
Another week brings another avalanche of Steam Greenlight e-mails. How many times do these indie developers need to tell me that they MIGHT be getting on Steam soonish, maybe? Zero times, because I don't care.
Plants Vs Zombies
I really shouldn't have to explain this week's iOS highlight. For one, it's easily the best tower defense game ever made. It's like crack. It's a Popcap game. You should already know all about Plants Vs Zombies.
But did you know that it's free for a limited time? This week Apple and Popcap/EA teamed up to make Plants Vs Zombies the iPhone Game of the Week on the App Store, which also resulted in the asking price of $0.00. I've easily put 30-40 hours into Plants Vs Zombies on my iPhone and that's after getting every single achievement in the XBLA version of the game. Seriously, don't wait, RUN to your i-device and start downloading this game now if you haven't already.
