What a week of teases. I have to wait for Scott Pilgrim a few more weeks to show up on XBLA, Irrational Games made us wait all week for their announcement, and now people are talking about doing a Ducktales game? You don’t just throw that around, Mr Spector.

Tell us what we missed and what we got right with the wrong opinion.
