Digital Download Roundup: Maximum Beta

crysis 3 header

You can’t talk about Crysis without saying “Maximum [something]” in that smooth, smooth voice.

There’s a Crysis 3 beta afoot for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 users to try out. I haven’t gotten ahold of it yet, but let me know how it is in the comments.

The Wii U eShop gets a demo of Double Fine’s The Cave while Fire Emblem fans such as Lowell can fawn at Fire Emblem: Awakening, which will be released on the 3DS eShop and in retail in two days.

On the Sony side of things, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus on Vita is the newest free game for PS Plus users and the classic Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is now available under the PS2 Classics branding.

Mega Man 9 and 10 are 20% off for Gold members on Xbox Live Arcade. A nice discount, but nowhere near as nice as Playstation Plus users getting the games for free. That’s okay though — they’re still worth it.
