New Releases - April 7th, 2009

Big releases this week include The Godfather II and The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena.

Dave's Pick of the Week
After a slow period since Resident Evil 5 it looks like we're back to having some actual major releases hit the stores this week. My personal pick is The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena. I missed the original realease and after reading Brad's review I'm pumped to check out that world despite my aversion to everything Vin Diesel. I'll likely also pick up the Company of Heroes expansion which should help ward off any misplaced curiousity with Elven Legacy. Whoever said PC strategy gaming was dead? We've seen more releases in the last 2 months then I can remember in recent memory.

Don't forget we've got upcoming Quick Looks for Ninja Blade and Dragonball: Evolution later in the week.

I was actually thinking about picking up Godfather 2, but I guess I will wait for the review. I have heard too many mixed opinions so far.

Don't forget Braid on Friday. I'm looking forward to getting that on Steam.

Looks like Chronicles of Riddick and Godfather II are the big ones this week. I'll be getting Braid, and maybe think about Rhythm Heaven some time down the line.

Dave's pick not Hannah Montana?

Hmm glad this is here...Godfather 2 seems to be slipping under the radar.

A Good Week!

Looking forward to Braid and Riddick on the PC myself.

Edit: Damn, Riddick's not out till the end of the month for me :(

Woah, there are actual games coming out in April! 

Posted by SlowHands

Riddick isn't until the 24th of April for us in Europe.  Bummer.

I miss Vinny's ranking the games coming out based on some bizarre criteria, like what item they represent on a McDonalds menu. :(

I played the demo of Riddick and didn't really enjoy it. Although I'll probably rent it, same with Godfather II.
