Lollipop Chainsaw: Shuffling zombies with pom-poms

AC: Revelations bundle comes with figure, flying machine

I feel like there's more Assassin's Creed: Revelations special edition bundles than I can keep up with. But this latest one that's appeared on GameStop.com I'm cool with, because it looks like a pretty neat package. The Assas...

Slick Batman: Arkham City 360 being given away at PAX
