It’s that time of year again. People have been getting sick all over the place this past week. Unfortunately, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) is one of the casualties of this cold epidemic. But hey, at least it provides an excuse to present this old Boogerman commercial for this week’s Retro Wrap-Up.

Here are the highlights of this week.

A Xenosaga HD Collection might be on the way. Get excite!

Jonathan Higgins takes a look at Gunstar Heroes in this week’s Games of the Past review.

Rhythm Thief is coming to iOS this winter. No, it’s not a social game.

Professor Layton and some Capcom franchises, on the other hand, are getting social games. I called it.

James Best reviews Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword and Jonathan Higgins reviews the PC version of Mutant Mudds.

Speaking of which, Sakura Samurai is rumored to finally be available in the PAL territories.

To The Moon was released on Steam this past week.

Also, Valve puts a $100 fee on Steam Greenlight to keep trolls out.

Ace Attorney 5 is coming to the US. Get super excite!

Shigesato Itoi sends a special gift to the wonderful people behind

Finally, a how-to guide for budding video game journalists had a KickStarter this week. Fortunately, it was successfully funded.
