Weekend Wrapup of May 16
First off, we offer our apologies for any inconvenience the delay in the Weekend Wrap up may have caused our readers. We normally like to provide this service on Sundays but this week we are bringing it to you on a Monday. This week was another exciting one as we were bombarded by trailers and developer walk-through videos from upcoming heavy hitters like Red Dead Redemption, LittleBigPlanet 2, Split/Second, and Fable III. Four more solid reviews were released here at DualShockers and the team even managed to avoid all of the god awful titles out there this week. Our Editor-in-Chief and long-time, competitive Halo: Combat Evolved player Yaris Gutierrez gave his impressions and then some on Halo: Reach based on his time in the beta.
Senior Contributing Editor Chad Awkerman gave his raw uncensored thoughts on Bioware and their latest headline scandal (*cough cough* publicity stunt?) involving insults being thrown at a certain RPG most gamers love. Beyond this the team engaged in hot debate and discussion over the Nintendo VS Apple feud that is brewing, based on the comments being made back and forth between the two consumer electronics giants, in our latest ShockCast Episode which you can listen to below. Enjoy the following highlights of the past week after the break.
