What the hell. That was waaaaaaaaay harder than I expected. I don't know the name of the Big Boss Level, but it is the one where the "Bane-like" monster drops in from the elevator shaft and then you have to kick his while also dealing with 3 separate waves of henchmen that also come out of the elevator, each one doubling in size from the last. It literally took me half the day.

My f*ucking hands hurt.

From playing the game you jackasses!

Now I have to go fight Poison Ivy. I'm NOT going to like this one at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

L.A. Noire on PS3. The best game since Red Dead Redemption!

I started playing LA Noire, but I ended up getting sidetracked with playing Batman Arkham Asylum again. So I definitely need to get back and finish Noire.

Playing Arkham Asylum and realizing that the Scarecrow Levels have been the best in my eyes and just look super cool on top of that, I sure hope to see a few similar type of Levels in Arkham City with that old-school, sideways game play.

Yes, I'm reviving an old game. Bite me!

Starting this game again...on Hard Level. Haven't played this one in a while, and the last time I played it I only got 5% complete before work got in the way. Gonna try to finish this one this time around.

****, Hard Level hurts. My forearm muscles are already fatiguing like crazy.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

Story and Pencils by Frank Miller
Inks by Klaus Janson
Colors by Lynn Varley
Letters by John Costanza

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is everything that you've heard and more. It's such an amazing piece of literature and art combined to tell one kick ass story about Bruce Wayne who as Batman had been retired for years and out of the game only to come back one last time to face a Government that wants him tried and convicted for his brand of vigilante. Along the way he takes on gangs and mutants that have taken over Gotham City, not to be outdone here, Batman also has one last dance with the Joker and a final throw-down with Superman.

Along for the ride is Robin, portrayed by Carrie Kelly. Yes, a girl. I thought this was a brilliant move and highlighted that in a world of superheroes, that they too are celebrities with the public at large. And the biggest fan of Batman is of course Carrie who did what any would-be fan would do...bought her own costume, only to end up saving the big lugs life and becoming the new "Boy-Wonder".

The only thing that's unclear in the story is exactly what happened to Jason Todd, the 2nd Robin. It is mentioned that he is dead, but how or why is left a mystery.

The story and words for DKR is just about as perfect as you can get here. On top of Miller's writing, the art is just absolutely amazing. Drool worthy in my eyes. And we can't forget about Lynn Varley killer watercolor's to bring the images to life.

If I were asked to recommend just one book to a newcomer into the world of comics, THIS is the one that I would tell them to get. I can't count how many times I have read this book, which I have read more than any other. Just a great story and it never gets old no matter how many times I read it. Many publications say that Batman Year One is the greatest of them all with The Dark Knight Returns sitting at #2. I for one have that order reversed.

Rating: 10 Stars out of 10 (Yep, I fore go the standard 5 Stars and really recommend this one).
