Dead Island: Riptide
Star Trek

STAR TREK The Video Game

April has been a sluggish month with few notable physical releases (last week had Injustice: Gods Among Us (Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U) and some Japanese imports in Pandora’s Tower (Wii) and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (3DS). However, this week’s new releases has several games that will vie for gamers’ hard earned dollars. The biggest games launching are Dead Island: Riptide and Star Trek on Tuesday. Also seeing a release this week are Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, and Poker Night 2.

Dead Island: Riptide – (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC)

[adsense250itp]It is time to jump back into the zombie madness with this sequel to 2011’s Dead Island. Riptide continues after the dramatic conclusion of Dead Island. Thrown out of the zombies and into the zombies, players will control one of five immune characters as they try to figure out how to escape from the infected, what caused the dead to come back to life and who they can trust. By teaming up with a new cavalcade of survivors, the player will bash in the brains of many infected as they run through the ravaged island of Palanai while attemping to find some place free of the undead scourge. Find some friends and prepare to go all co-op on zombies on either the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC this April 23.

Be on the lookout for Gaming Illustrated’s Dead Island (PC) Review next week.

Star Trek – (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC)

It may not have the UK powerhouse Benedict Cumberbatch, but this in-between-quel will give fans insight into what the USS Enterprise has been doing in the time after beating up Eric Bana, but before beating up Cumberbatch this May. Players will take control of Captain Kirk and Spock in what has been described as a “bro-op” experience. For fans of the Star Trek reboot, this game will feature an original story written by Marianne Krawczyk and Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman (screenwriters for both films). Kirk and Spock have to stop the GORN! The Gorn are attacking the New Vulcan colony and that will not stand. The USS Enterprise will not stand for this aggression (Lens flares available as DLC). The game will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this April 23.

Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins – (3DS)

Chase McCain is back! Or wait, this is the first case for the plucky Lego City cop, so Chase McCain is introduced! A 3DS prequel to the solidly fun Lego City Undercover for Wii U, the Chase Begins details the events alluded to in the Wii U game. As a rookie cop, McCain must show the police department his chops and solve the toughest case of his early career. Rex Fury is up to no good (again! or wait, the first time) and it is up to Chase to put him behind bars (for the first time). Enjoy the same fun gameplay and disguise-based gameplay that made Lego City Undercover a joy on the 3DS this April 21.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen – (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC)

Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma was a surprising hit among critics and gamers, enough so that Capcom is poising Dragon’s Dogma to be a new franchise in their franchise machine. Before Dragon’s Dogma 2, Capcom is giving fans of the fantasy action a meaty expansion to enjoy in Dark Arisen. The Arisen will venture off into a new area in the Bitter Black Isle off the Gransys mainland. In this new area, players will tackle tougher monsters and new challenges while enjoying new high-level spells, augments, weapons and armor. Dark Arisen will include the expansion and the original Dragon’s Dogma for anyone who missed out on the first journey. For either new or experienced Dogmaniacs (copyrighted), Dark Arisen will be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 this April 23.

Poker Night 2 – (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC)

Rounding out this week’s releases is TellTale Games’ Poker Night 2. A sequel to the 2010’s Poker Night at the Inventory, which pitted players against four luminaries of video games and the internet. Poker Night 2 will once again have players squaring off against a regular Harlem Globetrotters of video game and nerd icons in this poker simulator. Joining players at the table will be Brock Samson from The Venture Bros., Ash Williams from The Evil Dead series, Sam from Sam & Max, Claptrap from Borderlands 2 and in the role of dealer is GLaDOS from Portal 2. If that does not seem like a poker table you would want to be sitting at then you might already be dead. Get dealt into the game on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this April 23.
