VGB Week in Review: 9/1/08 – 9/7/08

What a crazy week it turned out to be. On Wednesday we broke the news on THQ’s super-secret Warhammer 40K third-person action game by way of a leaked developer walkthrough video, a story that immediately spread like wildfire across the Internet, including here where something like 20,000 people clicked in over two days to try to watch it before we had to pull it down (some other “bigger” sites don’t seem to be getting in trouble for hosting it for some reason, though, so search around and you should be able to find it somewhere if you missed it here). Making matters worse, Comcast thought it was a good day to have a service outage in my area, so I was without Internet access for like three hours amidst all the chaos. I won’t go into any more detail, but let me just tell you, Thursday was one hell of a day. Then Tropical Storm Hanna rolled through yesterday morning and soaked us pretty good, but thankfully being on the western side of the storm kept us from getting the damaging wind. But hey, other than that it was a week like any other…
