Games to get in April

For those wondering what happened to Twilight Thursdays, I eventually came to my senses after recalling the words of a very wise man. I believe it was Abraham Lincoln who once said, "F$%# Twilight."

Moving on.

April is here and with it comes the "new" Nintendo handheld, the DSI. That's right, the Big N has found yet another way to slightly tweak one of their existing systems in order to rake in piles and piles of money. Other than that, there are a few games this month you might want to look into.


5th- Warioware Snapped (DSI)
7th- The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (PS3, 360)
7th- The God Father 2 (360, PS3)
28th- Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce (PSP)

I'm recommending Warioware based solely on the franchise's pedigree. All Warioware games before this DSI iteration have been more or less great, so I'm hoping the new title will live up to its older siblings.

The God Father 2 blends GTA style antics with full-city crime management similar to a strategy based RPG. Plus, the story revolves around the GF universe. Can't really go wrong with that combination.

For anyone who missed The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay on the original XBox, now is your chance to enjoy this hidden gen all over again in HD. Not only that, but you get an online component AND a completely new chapter in the Riddick universe, Dark Athena. This will likely be one of the best values to hit shelves this year and, if the rest of the game is as good as Butcher Bay, a tremendous bang for your buck as well.
