Dead Pixels Monthly, April-May 2010

It’s that time of the month again, the time where we get all nostalgic and look back at the previous month’s offerings. That’s what Dead Pixels Monthly, or what I affectionately refer to as DPM, is all about. Well, that and unicorns. But what isn’t about Unicorns nowadays? Nothing, that’s what.

April might’ve been a little lacking in the new releases department, but May more than made up for that with Alan Wake, Red Dead Redemption, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and a slew of other titles I could list here but won’t. But as amazing as the past months has been, it’s merely a warm-up for June, which holds the highly anticipated E3 event that will no doubt shower us with jaw-dropping headlines, one after another.

TJ here. This month I’d like to complain a little about video game names. I miss the days where it wasn’t necessary for game companies to put a little colon and add something like “Beyond The Darkness” or “Enter The Dragon”. What happened to sequels just saying 2, 3, 4, or 5 million after it? Dead Space 2? Yes, I love you. F.3.A.R.? NO! I hate it! Why!? Fear 3? YES! Can’t We just keep it simple? What’s next? Left 4 Dead Threepeat? Left FOUR Dead? SAW 3: Behind The Mask? Resident Evil 6: Zombie Parade? It has to stop! Spread the word! I’m officially nuts.

Adam! Back to you.

Thanks TJ! April was a good month. A happy month. May was a busy month. If April and May were dating April would be the shy, quiet type and May would be the busy business executive. Whoops. I just got weird on ya. Let’s move on to what you might’ve missed, so you can get nice and caught up.
