The Download January 3rd, 2012
Posted on Thursday, January 3 @ 16:00:00 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
When 2013 rolled around, I immediately whipped out my phone, Vita, and 3DS and started downloading. Of course, I passed out long before I could see which service finished first, but the important thing is I stuck to my New Year's Resolution.... To drink too much in 2013.
If you're dying for some Japanese oddities, the Nintendo eShop has that and more for you this week. Both XSEED and Atlus have you covered while Gunman Clive sneaks into your house and eats all your biscuits! (I have no idea what Gunman Clive is about).
This first week of 2013 is all about ketchup at the Microsoft offices. You'll remember that last time on The Download, Major Nelson and company were waiting patiently for the Mayan hellfire they were promised. This week they've got Retro City Rampage!
You get all of your PSN information from here? I get all of mine from the fine folks at PlayStation Lifestyle. Their weekly PSN Update is always spot on... and frankly a lot better organized than the mess you find here.
The Steam Winter Sale continues this week. Please check GameRevolution or the Steam Storefront for all the irresistable deals your wallet can handle.
iOS/Android App of the Week
Semi Secret Software returns with another devilishly simple premise to addict your thumbs and drain your batteries. Following auto-run darling Cannabalt, Hundreds is a puzzle game that challenges you to count to 100. It'd be simple if there weren't all these rules in place. Touch circles not only adds to your overall count, but it makes them bigger too.
It seems fairly straightforward until your ever-growing orb touches another and fails the level. Multi-touch and hazards help the difficulty ramp up, but if you've got a penchant for neat aesthetics, relaxing music, and addictive puzzles, Hundreds will quickly quench your thirst for more. With plenty of puzzles and timed challenges, $2.99 will buy you hours of on-the-go entertainment.
