VGB Week in Review: 4/20/09 – 4/26/09

It was a nice, full week of bloggin’ this week, headlined by some big reviews for FEAR 2, The Chronicles of Riddick, and GTA: Chinatown Wars, which Mike and I both gushed over in our discussion piece. We also started up our first contest since January — a Space Invaders Extreme XBLA token giveaway — and have had a good number of entries roll in so far (keep ’em coming!). Of course, I still can’t get my head wrapped around the whole LEGO: Rock Band development. Isn’t that just about the most absurd franchise collaboration ever?
