The LoadDown - 02/22/2010

Another week, another roundup of downloads...

WiiWare -- 3 new games today.  GhostSlayer is a Motion-Plus-compatible swordfighting game; it's an arcade-style game ("on rails") and likely repetitive, but may also be physically a lot of fun in small doses.  Mouse House is a cute logic/machinery puzzle game.  And Family Go-Kart Racing is yet another in the competent but uninspired Family series, a kart racing clone with no online play.

Wii Virtual Console -- Nothing this week, unfortunately.

DSiWare -- 4 titles this week, 3 of them games.  Aura-Aura Climber is an arcade climbing contest about a wannabe star (of the celestial variety).  Flight Control is a fairly full-featured casual air traffic control/landing sim.  Faceez is a creative photo/dress-up/animation tool meant for silly portrait-shopping.  Flipper is a platforming game about a boy searching for his lost goldfish.

XBox Live Arcade --  One game last week, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, an innovative and stylish platformer with a fantastic ragtime score, a silent-movie-style presentation, and a neat capture-and-replay character cloning concept at its heart.  I played through the demo levels of the trial version, and will consider unlocking this one when I'm in the mood for a puzzler.

PS3 on PSN -- Another gameless week on the PS3 downloadable scene, but things look to be picking up again soon.
