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.
