The Ratchet costume isn't half bad!

Braid's Russian box art grosses me out


Nov 09
Eww! I can't look at it. Get it away. Take it far from here. Take it back to Russia, where it came from. MumboJumbo and Russobit-M/GFI have brought the popular indie game Braid to Russia, says Kotaku, and this is what they ma... read
