You know, I learned something today. The concept of a game in which you buy and manage African slaves is one that has every right to be explored, and I am an overreacting prude for thinking such a game would be in poor taste. However, a hobby figurine of Mass Effect's Liara T'Soni that sports slightly larger-than-average breasts... WHOA, NOW! That's just not right! I'm so glad I was granted this lesson in perspective.
Elsewhere, Jordan Devore reviewed Rock of Ages, Daniel Starkey gave Blacklight Retribution a spin, we posted some cosplay photos from Dragon*Con, and a Call of Duty burger joint opened up in real life.
