The Weekend Hotness: MusclesGlasses wins Comic-Con

Watch your childhood icons crumble before your eyes as MusclesGlasses destroys every single superhero in existence at arm wrestling. Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, and even two incarnations of Sylvester Stallone go down in flames. Going “over the top” ain’t gonna help ya this time, Sly!

This weekend, Jesse Cortez brought us some choice nuggets from Evo2k11, Alex Bout built a cheap-ass PC that runs Battlefield 3, and Batman went way, way, waaaaay “beyond” in Arkham City. Other stuff happened too, so check ’em out.
