April 25, 2011: wallet threat level green

, | Games

You know it’s a slow week when the only cause for excitement is a downloadable game from the folks who made Super Stardust and Dead Nation. Outland seems like a mostly typical side-scrolling platformer, but with trippy graphics that recall Out of this World*. It’ll be available from Xbox Live on Tuesday and from the Playstation Network whenever Sony gets their act together.

Also out this week are add-ons for Operation Flashpoint and IL-2. And whatever Dark Spore is.

* If you have to ask, you’re too young to know.
