The March Madness is over and what a long, strange trip that month was. From Simcity’s crushing disappointment to the stellar heights of Bioshock Infinite. From the fantastic reboot of Tomb Raider to the prequels of Gears of War: Judgment and God of War: Ascension. March was a month where it could be all things to all people with a little something for everyone.
Well, I hope you got what you wanted in March because odds are that April isn’t going to blow your mind with its offering. Not that there aren’t some gems here, but nothing on the scale of last month. This is more of a specific kind of month, with niche titles that appeal to fans of that sort of thing. See the poll below:
There isn’t really anything I am hankering to play here unless the reviews blow me away. It’s always tempting to try Shin Megami Tensei, but I am not sure this is the best one to start with. Pandora’s Tower is the least interesting of the 3 JRPGs that were part of Operation: Rainfall, so I am not realy anxious to play that. I never played Dead Island so I don’t know if Riptide will be better or worse than the original, or it is even a full-fledged sequel. Star Trek is a shooter, which isn’t what I envision when I want a new Star Trek game. Injustice might win by default, but I’m not really in the mood for a fighting game right now. I guess I am not excited for anything this month. Is there something I should try out that I am overlooking here? What say you? Is April a month for catching up on your backlog or are you going to spring for one of these titles? Go!
