When I heard "Alfred on the codec" all I could think was "Bruce? Bruce! BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE!"

Arkham Asylum is awesome. Batman is my favorite DC hero, and my high hopes for the game were met and exceeded. One of my favorite little touch in the game is how major events (mostly boss fights) cause some superficial damage which is then carried through the rest of the game. Batman's cape gets a little torn, or he gets scratches on his face, and it stays with him as you play.

Paul Dini has written just about everything in television and comics, including the He-Man comics that came with the 80's action figures and my favorite episode of post-1986-Movie G1 Transformers, "The Dweller in the Depths." He also created the sexy Minerva Mink from "Animaniacs" and is now one of the story editors for "Lost."

He is also married to Misty Lee, an illusionist who looks and dresses like Zatanna.

He is also a pretty nice guy who posed for this pic with me!

1. I watched Blizzcon streamed and I didn't buffer once. It was perfect.

2. It's called Blizzcon not WoWcon. Complaining about watching a starcraft panel instead of a WoW panel is dumb.

Good episode but I was hoping for more District 9 and Avatar trailer talk

Master Higgins, the 360 had a price drop today(pro is now $250 and elite is $300). Get that, xbox live gold account and a Netflix account and you'll be able to play Batman AND watch Grindhouse. There is no down side to this plan.

Am I understanding things correctly when you say there's a Batman game out there that doesn't suck? No way. It isn't possible. What's next? Duke Nukem Forever coming out? This must be a sign of the times for sure.

and 29 is the worst age ever. Being 33 now, I can still remember the horrors of it all. Nine more months till you're 30; six more months till you're 30 and on and on. The closer you get to your birthday, the worse it is. I can't imagine 39 being that bad. By then I will have already come to accept the reality of being an old fuck :cry:

Netflix on the 360 allows you to have a group session, voice chat during the movie, and your avatars are in a theater watching the film MST3K style. PSN....not so much.

It was refreshing to hear you guys talk about WoW in a non elitist hardcore way. I feel pretty much the same way as you all do about wanting to see all the cool content that they made for those old super hard raids but was never able to do because I didn't want to dedicate my life to a raiding guild. I haven't actually played WoW since Burning Crusade came out, but from what I hear they have done a pretty good job with making content available to everyone through the different difficulty levels. Though there are obviously those who say they ruined the game and made it too easy... but whatever. Cataclysm sounds really interesting and probably will get me back for a few months to check out all the new zones and stuff.

Made some progress today as I attempted to drive for the first time. This dialogue really summed up the whole experience:

(After almost hitting a car while I tried reversing for the first time)
My husband Patrick: OH MY GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Me: I don't know!
Patrick: You don't know how reverse works? It's just like Burnout!
Me: I never reversed in Burnout! I hit cars and use NOS!

*Sigh* It was very scary. I think I just need more time getting the feel of it. Still need work on accelerating smoothly.

You guys ain't no wrestling Fans. Mike Cruz is full of crap, you don't know shit. Same goes for Fitch or Higgins I don't know which one was talkin cause they both sound the same. Freddie didn't say shit about having writing powers on RAW. Ultimate Warrior and Macho Man Randy Savage are both in Legends of Wrestlemania. And The Rock was known for NEVER EVER Having someone write his promos. The fact that you said that make me KNOW you don't know shit about wrestling, let whoever goes down to the events thats not you go cause you don't know shit.

Stick to videogames, lost, and Burn notice. things you know.

Oh and Fitch is so f'n negative its so Annoying, mute his mic and the show would be better.

Wow, i thought I was the only one who thought that. Just when i start to agree with Fitch it turns out it's Higgins talking.

Haha that made me laugh!

I too think Master Higgins and Fitch sound the same, except Higgins has a slightly higher voice as far as I can tell. And all this Fitch trashing is annoying--- I enjoy listening to his cynicism and gripes.

Nope, I can never tell which one is talking between Fitch and Higgins until I listen to the actual content of the dialog. If it's nerdy but positive, it's Higgins and if it's negative, pissy and moany fanboy ranting, it's Fitch. :)

Re: Shinifox

Just because Warrior and Macho Man are in Legends doesn't mean that Vince McMahon likes them. Vince is a smart businessman and he'll make money any way he knows how. Look at the Ultimate Warrior DVD--that's no tribute to the man. It was mostly other wrestlers bashing and making fun of him. Vince saw an opportunity to make some cash and he took it.

As for the Rock, I'll give you that--he is one charismatic performer.

Who told you to get back on subject? We're discussing how Higgins and Fitch are the same but different....or something like that.

Re: MCruz

I agree with you on that one at least... But the thing that really urked me was Bob Holly thing. Its not that you are wrong about him its just that he gets talked about I get mad. I never liked the guy, I mean he sandbags Brock Lesnar and then bitched about him getting dropped on his neck. If he wouldn't have tried to teach brock a lesson his neck would be fine now wouldn't it. People like him need to learn that wrestling is in need of a evolution (No pun intended) that people like him and bradshaw can't strong arm the rookies. I mean look whats happened, now Randy Orton is doing the same thing.

Oh and on the topic of Fitch and Higgins, yeah from now on they need to say who they are before talking. Or Fitch can't ever say anything positive. Wait... He already doesn't. I guess nobody taught him if you ain't got nothing nice to say don't say nothing at all.
