The LoadDown -- 04/19/2012

Taxes are done (at least here in the U.S.) and it's time to see what's new on the near-instant-gratification gaming front... fairly quiet this week...

WiiWare -- Nothing here this week... starting to feel a mite lonely in this part of the Nintendo universe.

DSiWare -- One new game, I Must Run!, a high-speed platformer, more adult than the usual fare, with T-rated language and violence as the orange-jumpsuited hero runs to save his wife.

3DS eShop --  Previously only available with preorders of the new Kid Icarus: Uprising, this 3-D enhanced version of the 8-bit NES classic Kid Icarus is now available to everyone with $5.99 to spare.   There's also a free demo version of the action/puzzler Pyramids.

XBox Live Arcade -- Two new titles arrived this week.  Fez is a cute 2-D/3-D platformer, in development since 2007 and subject of the documentary Indie Game: The MovieTrials Evolution is a much-anticipated followup to the popular physics-based Trials stunt bike game.

PS3 on PSN -- I could have sworn this was released a few weeks back, but it appears that Sega's coin-op port of the light-gun (PS Move) shooter The House of the Dead 4 actually showed up this week.  So go kill some zombies!
