VGB Week in Review: 6/16/08 – 6/22/08

It was a very busy week here at VGB. The first part of our Games of Summer guide series went live, detailing all the major titles coming to the PlayStation platforms this summer. I also finally joined the rest of the gaming world and picked up GTA IV for a review. Zach and I tidied up a pair of discussion reviews for House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return and Super Mario Galaxy that we’d been slowly working on behind the scenes, clearing our slate to begin our MGS4 co-op review (which we should have all ready to go for you this coming week). Links to all those stories and much more below.
