Kotaku Originals: Impressive Impressions

In a week that saw our new previews format, we gave you the goods on Resident Evil 5 (preview) and Killzone 2 (impressions) plus nearly half-a-dozen more titles.

The previews weren't limited to just games. Jeff Kass gave everyone a look at the video-game parts of his comprehensive Columbine retrospective set for publication right around the 10th anniversary of the shootings. We appreciate the heads up, because April's going to throw violence and popular culture - and, yes, video games - back into the talk-show churn again.
