Short Packed: New video game toys in stock!

by Christopher Troy

Sorry for the later article everyone, but I came back from PAX East in Boston late this past Sunday night, and I still haven’t had time to recover, what with work and the new Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC dropping. For the 3 of you that care, the show was massive, with nearly 70,000 people in attendance! There was many an awesome game on display, with publishers like Ubisoft, EA, Bioware, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft on hand.

It’s a cool counterpart to Bayonetta, I just wish Square just had the dual-heel guns pre-attached to her shoes, as slipping them to the back to Jeanne’s feet has been a severe pain.
