From MTV Multiplayer's article:
"As we established last week, April will be a slow month for games until the very end ('Mario' what? 'Grand Theft' who?).
But bad or good, hyped or unheard of, no game box art is safe from our swift and shallow assessment. Even though most publishers like to skip releasing games near April Fools' Day, we still marched on with our new feature in which we judge games by their cover art."
