Games to get in April

Hallelujah! After half a year of months jam-packed with big titles, we’re finally starting to see a little slowdown in April. Wallets everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief.

Don’t get me wrong, though. This month is still seeing quite a few offerings likely well worth your time and money. For those who still (somehow) have a little extra cash to spend on games, here’s this month’s lineup.

13th- GTA: Episodes from Liberty City (PS3)
13th- Splinter Cell: Conviction (360)
20th- Monster Hunter Tri (Wii)
27th- Super Street Fighter IV (PS3, 360)
27th- Nier (360, PS3)
27th- Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake (PSP)

Not the longest list, but still a nice variety of games to keep everyone busy. The big title this month is the long awaited, grittier take on the Splinter Cell franchise, Conviction.

Those who enjoyed Grand Theft Auto IV on the PS3 can finally get their hands on The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony chapters as either a standalone disc or downloaded individually off PSN.

Monster Hunter fans everywhere can rejoice as the third title in the series proper drops later in the month, just before Square Enix’s latest dark fantasy RPG, Nier, prepares to (likely) confuse the hell out of everybody with its bizarre storyline and oddball cast of characters.

The enhanced version of Street Fighter IV is sure to make fighting fans happy while players on the go have the PSP version of Fat Princess to whet their appetite.
