Nothing beats sitting at home, eating a nice bowl of cereal, in your robe, and knowing you're playing a brand new game you didn't have to leave the house for. Downloadable games are the best thing since groceries delivery! Has anyone tried that? Oh God... I'm... I'm so lazy now! It's time for The Download:
This week's heaviest Nintendo hitters come from the big N itself. Luigi begins the Year of Luigi as decreed by Nintendo, as he did on the Gamecube: by investigating a haunted mansion. Pokemon's Gates to Infinity will also be mysteriously dungeon'd... or something.
Aliens and sisters invade Xbox Live and apparently your dreams? Gross, what kind of freaky stuff are you into?
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.
WIth the ever growing library of indie games and modern classics on Steam, you don't really need anything other than a PC to be an extremely well-played gamer.
iOS/Android Pick of the Week: PWN: Combat Hacking
Nodes. When you hear the word, you know what I'm talking about, but it's difficult to realize. I love nodes and games that feature nodes because they normally present you with a situation where you get to feel like an awesome 90s movie computer hacker, and PWN is no different. In PWN you'll try to take over the competitions nodes to eliminate their influence on the server. You start with one, and gain others by tapping on them. More connections to the target node means it'll get taken faster.
Powerups, viruses, and scanners enter into the mix to attack and defend nodes, but the mutliplayer is my favorite part. While the head-to-head mode isn't available for online play, getting another player in the same room and fighting it out for nodes is undeniably fun. If you've got a friend to play with, download PWN now.
