This Week in CRNews: OTAKOOOON! Edition

Hot news, big features, and stories you may have missed!

Lots going on this weekend, what with Otakon 2012 taking over Baltimore's sweat-drenched streets. It's hot enough where I am, so I don't even want to think about how hot it is there. Anyone at the convention right now? We'll be reporting on all that's happening over the course of the event, but for now let's take a look back at the biggest stories of the past week!


Below you'll find a bevy of hot stories, features and video posted throughout the week. But that's not all. We've also compiled a few stories we missed, so be sure to check those out, as well.
