This week in Crave: The watch-out-for-that-bear edition

This week's Crave roundup is more of a public service announcement about the dangers of texting and walking into bears. Yeah, you read right.

Too busy searching your couch for spare change for the $1,300 Resident Evil 6 "Premium Edition" to keep up with Crave this week? It's a cool bundle, for sure, but here's another awesome bundle that you can have for absolutely free! That's right, it's another collection of our favorite stories from Crave.
