After a careful and exhaustive consideration of the relative commercial and social values of this week's truly deep release schedule, I have empirically calculated that the most significant game release of this first full week of April is the Borderlands Add-On Pack.
Also, it is the only release this week.
If you've been waiting for the Spring slump, then April may be shaping up to fit that bill. Aside from Splinter Cell: Conviction, there's just not a whole lot to get my money maker shaking about this month. It is, however, a brief reprieve with a substantial May already shaping up on the horizon.
Now is as good a time as any to catch up on that pile, and frankly Borderlands is a pretty good choice if you've been meaning to play it. Blending a Diablo style action-RPG model with a first person shooter, for fans of the two genres Borderlands is strong both as a totally single player experience and a co-op game.
