Anyone willing to pick up a points card or put their credit card on the line will find a lot to love in this week's round up of all things downloadable. eShop, PSN, and Steam have great new games to buy, but Xbox Live users can find two free games (sorta) in the form of a multiplayer Fuse demo and another Doritos adver-game.
One seriously awesome puzzle game featuring a plumber and his monkey takes eShoppers by storm, but what about the Wii U? It's lost at sea.
Xbox Live ArcadeNow's the time to grab Fuse's demo and check out Insomniac's brand of third-person co-op cover-shooting. We'll have a review soon so see if you can convince your favorite co-op buddy to try the demo with you.
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.
Insanity Sanctum? How about... Super Afterall? There's something in there. Maybe Valve can organize some sort of team-up crossover for these two newly released games... or maybe the gamers in the Steam Workshop can cook something up.
iOS Pick of the Week: Ace Patrol
Sid Meier conceived, designed, and programmed Ace Patrol himself, and I think it shows. It's a neat turn-based flight-combat game, where every maneuver can defeat the enemy or put you in hot water with your commanding officer. Fans of procedural strategy games like X-Com will appreciate the airbase, multi-leveled battlefields, and Civilization fans can continue to drool over how hexagons make for excellent board games.
I'm not too deep in Ace Patrol yet, but you have no excuse to try the game out. It's completely free, it's from one of the best strategy game developers in the world, and you can play it wherever you go with your phone. Well if you have an Android device, you have an excuse. Hopefully these awesome mobile releases from 2K Games make it to the Google-powered handsets out there soon.
