The LoadDown - 07/28/2011

Another week brings another new batch of downloadable content...
WiiWare -- One new game, Burn the Rope, a kinetic puzzle game with an upward-burning flame, challenging players to rotate the image to ensure that every last strand of rope gets burned.

Wii Virtual Console --  Jaleco's Brawl Brothers for the SNES arrives; it's another side-scrolling beat-'em-up, with a cartoonish sensibility, for 1 or 2 simultaneous players.

DSiWare -- The DSi is still going strong, with three new titles this week:  GO Series: Portable Shrine Wars, a comical racing game with a very Japanese parade theme; Oscar's World Tour, another in the popular platformer series; and My Australian Farm, wherein players try to breed emus and other animals Down Under.

Nintendo 3DS eShop --  In addition to the DSiWare titles described above, the 3DS gets one exclusive: Let's Golf 3D, with eight golfing characters and a variety of exotic locales, all in true 3-D.  And with Nintendo's substantial (~30%) 3DS price drop announced today, effective August 12th in the US, this platform might become a little more viable after its slow start this spring.

XBox Live Arcade -- The Summer of Arcade continues, with a new title from Eric Chahi (Out of this World): From Dust, a Populous-inspired god game with realistic physics and environments.

PS3 on PSN -- A couple of new titles arrive: Sega's Golden Axe, in its original classic coin-op arcade version, with trophies added, and Deadliest Warrior: Legends, second in the so-far-mediocre series featuring the historically-inspired martial artists from the TV show.

PSOne Classics -- No activity here this week.
