Weekly Digital: Let it Rain on your parade


If you can give Grand Theft Auto Online a rest (as difficult as that may be), there are quite a few notable digital titles out this week, including the emotionally-charged Rain on PlayStation 3.

If you prefer getting freaked out over being turned into a sobbing mess, the PS3 still has you covered with the PS2 Classics release of Fatal Frame III: The Tormented. North America sure could use a release of that Japan-exclusive Fatal Frame IV right about now.

Capcom is serving up a trifecta of Wii U SNES Virtual Console titles, with all three Final Fight games now available on the Wii U eShop. Mass-releases of VC games in one day is something I hope Nintendo continues to do. There’s also a demo out for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, which will allow you to have the pleasure of shouting “OBJECTION!” and “TAKE THAT!” at the top of your lungs at a 3DS.

Finally, GOG has an excellent sale on Interplay titles like Fallout and Earthworm Jim that you shouldn’t pass up on, and Steam Greenlight now has a page for Ikaruga. You know what you must do.
