The LoadDown - 01/17/2011

It's Martin Luther King day, and time to celebrate freedom (of gaming choice) with a roundup of recent downloadable releases...

WiiWare -- Once again, we see two new titles and a demo.  Indie game creator Stickmen Studios releases Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time, a time-travelling platform/puzzler meant to be the first in a series.  Urbanix is a retro arcade-style game, where the player's tractor must build a town in spite of comical invaders, claiming territory a la Qix.  And there's a free demo version of BIT.TRIP BEAT, first in the popular series from Aksys Games.

Wii Virtual Console -- All's quiet on this platform this week.

DSiWare -- Four new titles up.  Glory Days - Tactical Defense is a military-themed tower defense game.  Animal Boxing is a stylus-controlled boxing game.  The Seller is a card game with an interesting backstory of corporate backstabbing and bankruptcy.  Alien Puzzle Adventure is another Match 3 puzzle game.

XBox Live Arcade -- One new game, Zeit², a new scrolling shoot-'em-up from Brightside Games.

Game Room -- Still no sign of a Game Pack 014.  Is history repeating itself, as the new coin-ops stop coming?  Will our virtual arcades have to resort to ticket redemption games?

PS3 on PSN -- One new game: Faery: Legends of Avalon, a downloadable action/RPG, arrives on the PS3 after debuting on XBLA in November.

PSOne Classics on PSN -- Nothing new up this week, but rumor has it some much-loved titles will be arriving in the near future.
