We’ve mentioned The Glowing Stars a few times but in case you haven’t heard yet, they’re a brand new band rocking the chiptune scene. Their first album, Anything Past That, is on sale and you can listen to every track over on their Bandcamp.

See who’s going to PAX, Jesse took on Seth Killian, we got hands-on with Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3 is coming to the Wii, From Dust breaks sales records and more happened on 8/4/11.
