"It’s a dramatically sale-heavy week in the Weekly Digital Roundup, with the eShop, PSN, XBLA and Steam all offering some interesting goods.
On Nintendo’s front, you’ve got the 3DS version of LEGO City Undercover out in both retail and digital forms, NES classic Kirby’s Adventure on Wii U for just $0.30, and a great bunch of Guild series games on sale on the 3DS eShop until the end of May. Liberation Maiden: I’ve got my eye on you.
All versions of Dishonored got new spoilerific DLC in the form of “The Knife of Dunwall,” which will probably be one of the few instances where I’ll actually buy DLC for something that isn’t named Deus Ex or Rock Band.
Sony missed its expected Tuesday Playstation Store update presumably due to required server maintenance, but rolled it out on Wednesday with a new free PS Plus game: Malicious, in addition to some neat releases like the old-school RPG throwback Dragon Fantasy Book I and that anticipated Soul Sacrifice demo, which features a hefty amount, including online multiplayer. Keep in mind that the online functionality of the Soul Sacrifice demo will last only until the release of the game on April 30. Aside from that, practically every GTA game on the service is on sale in some way.
Xbox Live’s got some nice discounts on games provided you have Gold membership, including I Am Alive, Lara Croft, Geometry Wars 2 and both Bionic Commando Rearmed games for low price points.
Finally, Steam’s got an awesome deal for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition: Only eight freaking dollars. If you haven’t gotten this game yet, then WHAT’S TAKIN’ YOU SO LONG, FOX!? And if you feel like you’re up for a challenge (and playing a fascinatingly difficult game), then the release of La Mulana beckons you.
Oh, and Hell Yeah! at $5.99/480 MS Points on PSN/XBLA? Do it up."
