The Download February 28th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, February 28 @ 19:15:00 Eastern by

Every week seems to bring more and more downloadable games. We're practically overloaded with new iPhone games, new indies, and new digital releases each week. Never fear! The Download is here to help you figure out what to spend all that fake money on. Microsoft Points? I know those aren't on the gold standard. Here's this week's list:

Nintendo eShop

The 3DS sequel to my favorite Castlevania game since Aria of Sorrow on the Game Boy Advance is available in demo form this week, so be sure to whip a few demons in 3D! Xbox Live Arcade

This week's XBLA update tallies up not one, but two games! Tying the previous Download record. What could possibly come next?
  • BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien - Xbox 360
  • Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds - Xbox 360
PlayStation Network

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.
  • Mud Fim Motocross World Championship - PS3/Vita
  • Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Multiplayer F2P - PS3
  • Persona 2: Eternal Punishment - PSOne Classic
  • Dora's Big Birthday Adventure - PS2 Classic
  • Plants Vs Zombies - Vita Free for PS+ Subscribers
Steam

Many of the console releases above are also available on Steam. It's just a matter of deciding if you want to add to that massive library that you'll never touch. Of course, you could wait until the next Steam sale too. Then pick up all of these gams and some others you won't play.
  • MUD Motocross World Championship - PC
  • Brutal Legend - PC
  • BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien - PC/Mac/Linux
  • TrackMania2 Canyon - PC
  • Star Conflict - PC/Mac
  • Chapions of Regnum - PC/Mac/Linux
  • articy: draft SE - PC
  • Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army - PC


AVP: Evolution

As far as action games go, AVP: Evolution is better than it has any right to be. It's an iOS/Android game, its developers Angry Mob Games have also release a game called Muffin Knight, and holy crap! Did you see that Predator decapitate that guy? AVP: Evolution lets you play as both an Alien and a Predator, even going so far as to include a role-playing style progressions system. That means you'll unlock new gear, parts, and power as you gain experience. You'll go from face-hugger to full-blown Xenomorph in no time flat.

The graphics aren't bad for mobile platforms, but the controls still leave something to be desired. You might want a bit more from the game for $4.99, but it'll still be money better spent that some other Aliens game on the market. My favorite part is the crisp, fast animations. The game looks great in action, and sometimes that's all it takes to sell an iPhone game.
