VGB Monthly: Our Top Stories of January 2009

New feature time! As sort of a companion piece to our week in review link round-ups, we’ll now be doing a monthly guide as well. With the frequent posting of a blog, posts don’t stay on the front page very long, often leading to important stories getting buried under the daily deluge of news announcements, trailers and screenshots. So to ensure they get as much front page space as possible, from here on out we’ll be rounding up all of our top original stories — reviews, previews and features — at the end of every month (was scheduling to get this up yesterday, but weekend errands prevented it).

16 reviews, four feature stories and one lone preview await in the debut January ’09 installment of VGB Monthly. Enjoy!
