PC download charts: 'The Elder Scrolls Online,' 'WizardWizard'

The series behind "Skyrim" ventures into a whole new genre with massively multiplayer "The Elder Scrolls Online," due April 4, and heading into release week it's charting high in both GameStop and GamersGate charts on Monday, March 31.

The Steam store sees a resurgent "Batman: Arkham Origins," barely five months old, but propelled into first after a weekend deal slashed the price of Batman franchise titles by 75% across the board, before spin-off "Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate" arrives from April 1, while "Arkham Knight" is due October.

On Desura, the free and funny platform game "WizardWizard" flies into third, benefiting from inclusion in the service's weekly Freedom Friday roundup (as well as some pretty tight jumping mechanics and surely the handsomest, humblest cane-carrying, spindly-legged pixel-wizard that ever lived).

"You can't do magic, but you can jump pretty good," as the game's own saying goes.
