The time has come for the start of the video game "dry" season. . . a gaming drought, if you will. Although there are a few games being released this month that are worthy of your time and cash - like one of my April Must Haves: Mario Kart – truth be told, some are just filler until we get to the next batch of great games. Fortunately, we had a huge Winter, and my console is still humming to the likes of Rock Band, Mass Effect (will I ever get the time to finish!?), and of course Super Mario Galaxy. Scope out my picks for this month and tell me what you think in the comments below!
|Game||Why You'll Love It||Console/Price||Release Date|
|Iron Man — You may already know how stoked I am for the movie, but I'm equally excited for the game as well.||PSP, DS, PS2, PC, Wii, $40 to $60||Coming April 22|
|Summer Sports: Paradise Island - Virtual volleyball, darts, horseshoes, and mini golf, all in a virtual resort? Sounds virtually perfect to me! Kinda like Wii Sports, just with a lot more sand.||Wii, $40||Out April 9|
|Mario Kart — Not only can you race your fave characters at home and online, but add in motorcycles and a Wii Wheel to the mix and you have an awesome racing party! Just be careful — those little kids that play online can be pretty good drivers. You better practice first!||Wii, $50||Racing into stores April 27|
|Arcana Heart — A gaggle of eleven heroic females are fighting to save the Earth from evil at all costs. Talk about some geeky girl power!||PS2, $30||Out April 8|
|Let's Pilates! - I know this one is kind of a "stretch" (ha ha), but it does fall nicely into place with the upcoming Wii Fit and the DS Weight loss coach. Just getting you ready for swimsuit season!||Nintendo DS, $10||Get it April 29.|
