VGB Week in Review: 5/18/09 – 5/24/09

This week turned out to be all about the PS3, from Bethesda confirming plans to port over all the Fallout 3 DLC previously exclusive to PC and Xbox 360, to Atlus acquiring the rights to publish From Software’s action-RPG Demon’s Souls in the US, to Sony’s unveiling of the second Killzone 2 map pack, to Eidos announcing the impending release of a Trophy patch for Tomb Raider: Underworld. But for me, the top story was easily the leaked, though unconfirmed, trailer for Team ICO’s Project Trico. If it is indeed the real thing — and we’ll surely find out one way or another at E3 — I will be the happiest gamer on the planet.
