April is ending with a bang! Well, with at least one good console release, though quantity is still very slim. After a chaotic month like March, I am personally embracing this slow period. It gives me time to catch up on Mass Effect 2. Yes, Mass Effect 2, not 3…. ~ Don

- Tuesday, April 24 ~ Prototype 2 (PS3 & X360)
The sequel to a game that I never thought needed one, Prototype 2 looks more promising, strangely enough. I actually just watched the trailer (an ad on Youtube) and I am now genuinely wanting to play this game (Editor’s Note – Don is easily swayed by television ads, he once bought a GoJo. ^CS). It didn’t hurt having Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” as the song either. You’ll even encounter Alex Mercer, protagonist in the original Prototype game, as you unleash your devastating powers in this sandbox action game.
- Tuesday, April 24 ~ Shifting World
The 3DS is the only portable system with any retail releases and it’s in the form of a black-and-white puzzler. Shifting World has a “Spy Vs. Spy” aesthetic and is loaded with puzzles to keep you occupied. With the contrasting colors, I would like to see how this looks in full-3D.
