The Download June 6th, 2013

You know that awkward and cliched sitcom plot where a character tries to go on two dates at once, in the same restaurant, at the same time? I've been trying to do that with downloadable games and it just won't work. I guess it's time to pick favorites. First week of the month goes to the eShop, second and third will have be split between 360 and PS3 somehow.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will all go to Steam. Maybe someday I'll finally play every game in my library! What's gonna get thrown on the pile this week?
The downloadable version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf is sitting on eShop servers, waiting for eager beavers, dogs, cats, and even sloths to download. It seems obvious, but AC is one of those games you'll want to carry around with you no matter where you're headed. Don't forget to check out our review.
Xbox Live ArcadeWhile PlayStation gamers have to wait another week for The Last of Us, anyone still plugged into XBLA can check out open-world zombie romp State of Decay. Alex will have a review soon.
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.
The PC version of Remember Me has greatly enhanced visuals, so don't forget to check out our review (even if it was for the Xbox 360 version). Marvel Heroes and Substance Designer might be worth checking out... you know... if you like Marvel or possibly creating your own substances.
iOS/Android Pick of the Week: Bird Zapper! [iTunes Link]
Damn you disruptive techonlogy! Why'd you have to go and make console game publishers and developers shake in their little booties?! It's time for some payback, and Namco Bandai knows it. That's why they've created a game all about electrocuting a bunch of primary-colored birds. Pffft, Rovio won't even know what hit 'em.
Bird Zapper! draws on the typical match-three premise, but ads a frantic sense of time. Take too long to zap your awesome combo of birds and you'll have missed them. Each bird flies by on your screen, so thinking quick and acting even faster is key. Bird Zapper! is currently free as the iTunes Store App of the Week, so hop on that by clicking the iTunes link above. It's also available on Google Play as well.
