The LoadDown - 02/14/2011

It's Valentine's Day, and time to show our love for another week of new games available over the wireless...

WiiWare -- A recent pattern continues with one new game and a couple of free demos of worthy older releases.  The new game is Pucca's kisses game, a semi-interactive cartoon presented platformer-style that pauses for player input at critical decision points.  Demos are for chick chick BOOM and Chronos Twins DX.

Wii Virtual Console -- Nothing new here this week.

DSiWare -- Three new titles.  Treasure Hunter X is a treasure-hunting game slightly reminiscent of Mr. DrillerOscar in Toyland 2 is a sequel to the popular DSiWare platformer.  Panda Craze is a puzzle/platformer collect-'em-up starring Tik-Ling the panda.

XBox Live Arcade -- Two new games this week include Stacking (see PS3 details below), and TNT Racers, a cute multiplayer racing game.

Game Room --  Going once...

PS3 on PSN -- A bumper crop of four titles this week.  Explodemon is a 2.5-D platformer with a novel exploding-hero mechanic.  Stacking is a neat adventure/puzzle game from Tim Schaefer's Double Fine Productions, starring a family of nesting dolls.  Plants vs. Zombies brings this very popular tower-defense game to the PS3.  Tales from Space: About a Blob is a platformer with a blob hero who grows by absorbing items from the environment.

PSOne Classics -- The classic PSX farming/life sim Harvest Moon: Back to Nature is now available for download.
