Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from October 6 to October 12, 2017!
Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:
A look back at one of the legends of the genre!

Packaged in with copies of Spider-Man: Homecoming, this premium costume has the friendly neighborhood spider swapping his red and blue duds for a “superior” outfit. The costume will be available separately for $3.99, if you don’t want to buy the movie.

I missed out on getting the GamerFinger G2s, so it’s exciting to hear that there is a return on the way. They are stylish and, from the tease, more accessible than ever. I can’t wait!
Look out for SRK’s upcoming investigation: Is desk even human? We already know that he has the best execution in the business, but doing it all with just one button? That’s just bonkers.
