The Summer convention season is certainly in full swing this week. Sine the 2013 E3 Expo took place a little more than a month ago, this year’s first-ever Comic-Con/PAX Australia convention crossover didn’t have much in the way of big announcements. But plenty of people got to play plenty of games, so that’s cool.
And what did the rest of us get? Well…
