Weekly Digital Roundup: “Cheers chummer, my favorite too.”

shadowrunreturnslogoheader

July 25, 2013 was the moment that many cyberpunks and Shadowrun fans have been waiting for: Shadowrun Returns is finally available on Steam and as a DRM-free version for backers.

Thankfully, the game isn’t a pile of drek, scoring some decent 7 – 9 scores. From the limited time I’ve had with it, it hearkens back to the fantastic isometric, turn-based games of yore, while incorporating a well-written story and some finely-drawn environments. If you’ve ever played Fallout or the SNES and Genesis Shadowruns, then this game is for you.

For other things Steam, there’s an early access beta for Mercenary Kings, which you should totally keep your eyes on, and if you feel like you’ve had a void in your life that’s yearning for DLC for a movie, there’s bonus DLC for Indie Game: The Movie out there. You’ve read that correctly.

The Wii U eShop now has Kid Icarus available, so you can sing along to that uber-catchy theme song ’till your wings fall off. PSN users can indulge in PS Plus freebie Metal Slug XX as well as a Persona sale that I’m having trouble not blowing my hard-earned money on, meanwhile Xbox Live has a whole slew of Ubisoft sales, ranging from Tom Clancy (or is it Ca-lancy?) titles to Assassin’s Creed.

As always, sashay past the break for the full list.
