The LoadDown - 04/18/2011

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

WiiWare -- One new game and a demo again.  My Little Baby is one of those disturbing but popular titles that treats an infant human being as a virtual pet.  There's also a free demo version of the retro-style BIT.TRIP CORE.

Wii Virtual Console -- One new title this week, as Capcom steps up with the SNES classic Mega Man X.

DSiWare -- Three new titles.  GO Series Captain Sub sends a submarine on a treasure hunt with enemies and bosses to fight.  DodoGo! Robo is a puzzle game where the player must program a robot to navigate a maze.  Music on: Learning Piano Volume 2 continues the music education series (good to see as it's been quite a while since Volume 1 came out.)

XBox Live Arcade -- A couple of interesting retro-inspired titles this week.  Atari dusts off Yars' Revenge for an HD outing, oddly reimagined with an anime style instead of the science-fiction insectoid world of the original Atari 2600 game.  There's also Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes HD, which is a Puzzle Quest-style match-three game set in the Might & Magic RPG universe, originally released on the Nintendo DS.

PS3 on PSN -- Two titles this week...  Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes HD (see above), and Dungeon Hunter: Alliance, a Baldur's Gate-style dungeon crawl with local and online multiplayer.

PSOne Classics -- This platform's been dormant for a couple of months now.  Hmmmm.
