Best Of GamerBytes: Flower, Noby, Death Tank, Oh My

Every week, Gamasutra sister console digital download site GamerBytes passes along the top XBLA, PSN, and WiiWare news of the week -- this time covering a major release period featuring Flower, Noby Noby Boy
[Every week, Gamasutra sister console digital download site GamerBytes' editor Ryan Langley passes along the top console digital download news tidbits from the past 7 days, including brand new game announcements and scoops through the world of Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and WiiWare.] This week, gamers can finally check out Death Tank on Xbox Live Arcade. Despite the 1200 Microsoft points ($15) it may cost you, those interested in checking it out before buying should know that the demo includes free online play for Gold users. In fact, there's a whole hour's worth of free online multiplayer to try out. This needs to happen more -- and it helps that it's a great game. Last week, the PlayStation Network got Flower, and this week, users can check out Noby Noby Boy. Even the creators aren't quite sure what sort of monster they've created this time. Finally, WiiWare users can download Evasive Space, a space shooter where you... do not shoot.
