RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

The Download January 17th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, January 17 @ 17:25:00 Eastern by

Take a load off, kick back, and sit on your couch because there are more than enough new games to download direct to your Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, or PC this week. Even if hardcore games aren't your thing, maybe the sequel to auto-run favorite Temple Run will satiate your apetite. Got a game not featured here that the rest of the community should know about? Send an e-mail to daniel@gamerevolution.com.

Nintendo eShop

I've been looking forward to Tokyo Crash Mobs since seeing it back in December, and it still holds up as a confusing, off-the-wall puzzler with shades of Bubble Bobble. And while I can't say much about Fire Emblem just yet, it's worth it to check out the demo as reports put the title at somewhere around 100 hours long.
Xbox Live Arcade 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. Steam

Even if you haven't been playing Crusader Kings II, maybe the DLC is enough to entice you? I'm getting peer pressure from a friend, but I don't know how I can continue to hold out.

Temple Run 2

The return of Imangi's auto-run phenomenon goes for broke with new visuals and a lot more variety. Plunderers now escape via zipline and have greater choice in branching pathways, upgrades, and characters. Temple Run 2 feels like the game the studio wanted to make in the first place, making the Temple raiding experience that much smoother. Even the frame rate has gotten a much needed boost.

While you can still rely on cold hard cash to unlock everything, valuable gems can be spotted and caught if your reflexes are tuned right. Overall Temple Run 2 goes the distance to represent everything Imangi Studios has learned since the original free-to-play app landed on iPhones everywhere. Temple Run Brave felt like and incremental step into the future, but Temple Run 2 brings the auto-run genre into new territory.
