Weekly Wrap-Up: Riding the Metro


Much like Tate's XBLA Corner, the latest edition of the Weekly Wrap-Up was pushed back a couple of days. The reason for the delay on this feature is that I was completely busy with pre-E3 events this week. Obviously, I can't discuss any of that here just yet, but stay tuned once E3 rolls by. For now, let's take a look at the last week in gaming.
