April Releases - Kombat and Science!

April looks to bring a nice calm to the influx of titles we have recently received. The must-haves for the month are few, but this month does play host to one of the most anticipated sequels of the year.

April 19th

Mortal Kombat

PS3, Xbox 360
Developer: Netherrealm Studios
Publisher: Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment

After years of experimenting since 1992 with 3D fighting, adventure games, and even bizzare single player exploration games; Mortal Kombat is returning to its roots. A simple 2D fighter with bloody finishing moves. In addition to the classic feel, a challenge tower has been thrown in to pit you against numerous scenarios from "Test Your Might" to "Test Your Luck" where you must find an egg hidden under a cup. It looks to promise the bizzare, the familiar, and the satisfying finishers we have come to cherish from the series.

Portal 2

PC, Xbox 360, Mac, PS3
Developer: Valve
Publisher: Valve

Easily, the most anticipated title of 2011. Portal 2 continues to unwravel the mystery of what happened at Aperture Science Labs while offering the same incredibly fun puzzles ot solve. Despite being first-person, this is a thinking man's game; requiring you to plan your moves and time each shot carefully to advace. Tack on a new co-op mode and you have one incredibly fun looking puzzle game. With Valve, you can rarely go wrong.
