The first quarter of 2010 has undoubtedly seen an amazing line-up of titles from all three console manufacturers. From January to March, there were no signs of any software droughts in the forseeable future. Mass Effect 2 took the first month of the year by a record storm while games like Bayonetta, MAG, and Darksiders were all serious head turners. February, however, was not going to be outdone as games such as Heavy Rain, Bioshock 2, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggles and Dante’s Inferno kept the excitement on full throttle.
Despite the amazing gaming experience offered from the first two months of 2010, March was arguably the best gaming month this year as the ever-popular Battlefield: Bad Company 2 started things off with a bang. Games like MLB 10: The Show, Red Steel 2, Just Cause 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Yakuza 3, Moto GP 09/10, and megaton hit GOD OF WAR III all made an appearance in March. March was crazy!
