VGB Week in Review: 9/14/09 – 9/20/09

Continued our gradual ramp up in review work this week, still easing into full-fledged review mode for the fall rush, which is already well underway even though technically it’s still summer… for another day at least. Reviews this week included Fate/Unlimited Codes, WET, Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 2, a retro review of Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain in honor of its recent PSN re-release, and a discussion review on Dissidia: Final Fantasy. Expect even more in the week ahead, including a final verdict on the uber-hyped Scribblenauts. Plus, the Tokyo Game Show hits this week, so if any big news drops we’ll let you know.
