I didn’t make it down to San Diego Comic-Con this year and, speaking frankly, I’m okay with that. It’s a bummer to miss out on the panels for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and The Unfinished Swan (plus The Last of Us and BEYOND: Two Souls from Friday), but the downtime will give me a chance to catch up on my ever-growing Pile of Shame — starting with Spec Ops: The Line and progressing to Batman: Arkham City. Maybe even (gasp!) Journey…if I can manage to put down the uber-addicting Theatre of Magic table for The Pinball Arcade.
