VGB Week in Review: 6/8/09 – 6/14/09

Mike had the reviews flowing in like clockwork this week. Eight in all — well, eight and a half counting our discussion review for The Last Remnant — including prominent titles like Patapon 2, Demigod, Empire: Total War and Drakensang, and a little indie love for Tale of Tales innovative horror/adventure game The Path. Links to those stories and more below.

It’ll be my turn for the coming week. I’m finally finishing up inFamous (about a third of the way through my second play as evil Cole on the hard difficulty) and I have one stage left and some online play testing to do with Atari’s upcoming Ghostbusters game (was fortunate enough to get an early Xbox 360 review copy!), so those will be the review headliners coming up. Klonoa Wii, Damnation, Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection, Puchi Puchi Virus, CellFactor and some other good stuff are on the way too. And with the recent Mac debut, Mike and I will be taking a look at Braid as our next discussion review.
