VGB Week in Review: 3/16/09 – 3/22/09

Unfortunately this week turned out to be fairly uneventful. I came down with a nasty bug mid-week that just sapped all my energy and made it hard for me to focus in my normally comfortable position hunched over my keyboard typing away. Getting sick while having to play through what has been an unexpected tidal wave of game releases the past few weeks proved to be a recipe for exhaustion!

The good news is I’m starting to feel a lot better, and the few days of downtime gave me good time to finish up a bunch of games, so expect a packed week of reviews as I enter “catch up” mode. I also got a chance to dig into the first few chapters of Tor Books’ new Dragon Age prequel novel this weekend, and I’m thoroughly enjoying the read thus far. Will post full impressions once I’ve read it through.

And hey, it’s not like this week was a total wash. We managed to squeeze out reviews for Sony’s much-hyped PSP shooter Resistance: Retribution and two disappointingly lackluster titles, My DoItAll for the DS and Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad for the 360. So enjoy those alongside the few trailers and major news stories of the week.
