VGB Week in Review: 3/2/09 – 3/8/09

Twas a slow posting week in terms of quantity as work continued behind the scenes plowing through the surprising rush of early 2009 releases (and STILL catching up on titles from late last year!), but the resulting four reviews — including those for the two biggest games of the year so far, Street Fighter IV and Killzone 2 — and a couple great previews for Ninja Blade and the upcoming Neverwinter Nights 2 Mysteries of Westgate adventure pack certainly picked up the slack.

Plenty more big reviews on tap for the coming weeks as well — Halo Wars, F.E.A.R. 2, Prinny PSP, Dead Rising Wii and Dawn of War II to name a few. Soon Mike and I will also be chatting in a discussion review about a criminally overlooked new PC RPG, Drakensang: The Dark Eye (just waiting on a replacement copy after the USPS had fun destroying Mike’s copy!). So you’ll definitely want to stay tuned.

But for now, here’s what went down at VGB this week.
