Some exciting video game news.
There's a new trailer up for Super Mario Galaxy 2, and they've announced the release date: May 23. So that's something to be excited about. Abby and I played the first one together and had quite a bit of fun doing so--and hey, any video game that's fun for both the semi-gamer husband and the non-gamer wife is a worthwhile investment! Nintendo has also promised us a new Zelda title before the year is out.
Towards the end of this month we should see some new content in Left 4 Dead 2--a new campaign called The Passing that will bring the survivors of the original Left 4 Dead in as non-playable characters. With it comes a new assault rifle (M60), a new melee weapon (the golf club), a new uncommon infected (the infected survivor, who drops health and ammo when you kill him), a new slew of achievements, and--if I'm not mistaken--a new as-yet-undisclosed gameplay mode. A month after that, there will be an add-on to the original L4D that serves as a prologue to the DLC for the sequel.
And last but not least, one of the most poorly-named games I've ever played has a sequel coming out this month with an even more ungainly name. That's right, the follow up to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II is going to be called Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising.
