The LoadDown - 04/11/2011

More new titles for your instant gratification gaming needs...

WiiWare -- Once again, we get one new title and one free demo of an existing game.  Play with Birds is clearly meant to capitalize on the popularity of a certain game featuring aggravated avians, with a whole bunch of bird-related minigames.  There's also a free demo of the Digital Leisure laserdisc game, Fast Draw Showdown.

Wii Virtual Console -- Nothing here this week.

DSiWare -- Three new games available on the wire.  Art of Ink is a tattoo parlor game that uses the DS stylus to draw and implement tattoos.  Slingo Quest is a puzzle game combining slots and bingo.  Escape Trick: The Secret of Rock City Prison is a puzzle/adventure game with a jailbreak theme.

XBox Live Arcade --Two new titles.  Red Faction: Battleground is a twin-stick vehicle-based shooter real-time strategy game, a downloadable tie-in with the upcoming action game Red Faction: ArmageddonThe Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a stylish 2-D side-scrolling beat-'em-up, a sequel to the 2009 indie favorite The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai.

PS3 on PSN -- Two new games last week.  Red Faction: Battleground (see above), and StarDrone, a scrolling action/mission-based sci-fi game, notable for some interesting extra support -- besides the standard PS3 controller, it can be played with Sony's Move motion controller and supports 3-D televisions.

PSOne Classics -- Still quiet here.
