Weekly Digital Roundup: “I am SHODAN.”

iamshodan

For this latest Weekly Digital Roundup, I will woefully admit that I’ve only played about a half hour of System Shock 2. I hope that doesn’t make me a punk for quoting the creepy SHODAN in my headline.

Even so, the more I see people talk about it on the internet, the more I want to get my hands on it. And that’s become even easier now with its long-awaited release on Steam. It’s only $6.99 until May 17, when it’ll go back to its $9.99 price tag. Even so, GOG.com’s DRM-free version offers a few extra perks, including the game’s soundtrack and an interview with Ken Levine.

With Nintendo, we’ve got Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move on the 3DS eShop. I’ve been hearing that it’s the best Mario and Donkey Kong title yet. And Wii U users can engage in repetitive ditty located within NES’ Xevious, in addition to the ever-difficult Solomon’s Key.

PSN users can now buy the PS2 version of Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly (if you feel like getting the pants scared off you) and Plus subscribers have the very awesome addition of Sleeping Dogs as part of their free Instant Game Collection. It’s the best GTA game that’s not named GTA that I’ve ever played.

And finally, Xbox Live users can finally purchase the hit indie stealth action co-op title Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine, and they should: it rocks.
