Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download January 24th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, January 24 @ 17:11:08 Eastern by

Have you ever wandered into a cave and thought damn, I wish there were a lot of puzzles to solve. If you haven't, you can still enjoy the result of that kind of thinking in Double Fine's The Cave. I'm not going to waste any more time. Let's get to the list:

Nintendo eShop

Maybe you need to get you NES gaming fix this week. Might I suggest the Wii U Virtual Console 30-30-30 intiative? With the Famicom turning 30 this year, Nintendo's offering classic games for $0.30. This week's is...
  • Balloon Fight - Wii U
  • The Cave - Wii U
  • Funky Barn - Wii U
  • Brain Age Concentration Training - 3DS
  • Super C - 3DS
  • Cocoto Alien Brick Breaker - 3DS
  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars - 3DS
Xbox Live Arcade

Despite Microsoft's eager push into digital download titles, things sure have slowed down in the obviously-only-to-everyone shadow of the next-generation Xbox. Still, that won't keep one game from going up this week.
  • The Cave - 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. Steam

The guys at Valve only added three games to the storefront this week and, you guessed it, one of them is The Cave. Don't forget to check our review of Strike Suit Zero before buying it at its introductory price of $15.99

Subway Surfers

I'm still addicted to Temple Run 2, so to stay fresh and scoring high, I bring you another auto-runner. This time, you're an inner city kid experiencing inner city life and inner city pressure. Of course, that leads you to run on the subway tracks. Like other auto-runners you'll need to collect coins and run farther than your friends to "win."

Unlike other auto-runners, you can take to multiple different levels and do really sick tricks on a snowboard thing. Don't ask me how a snowboard works on subway rails. It just does. Perhaps my favorite part of Subway Surfers is the art style. Colors pop and the frame rate is unbeatable. It plays perfectly to my Temple Run addiction, but with just enough different to feel fresh.
