Slam Bolt Scrappers in the Press

This is how people generally get the news, isn't it? Delivered to your doorstep (or window) by 8 bit pixelated bicycle paperboy, right?

OK, so we’re two weeks out from PAX and the dust has settled (especially with all the cool news coming out of Tokyo nowadays). For the SBS fans out there here is a big ‘ol list of all the press the game got coming out of PAX. A big thanks to all of the reporters for writing about our game, we promise that the final version will blow the one you saw in Seattle out of the water!
