Saturday's Gaming in the Journal: 'Lego Batman' review

Finally, after weeks of promising it, I can deliver: On Saturday in the Poughkeepsie Journal's Gaming page (page 5C in the Journal's Saturday Sports section), we have a full review of "Lego Batman: The Videogame." It's available at THIS LINK.

After I received my copy on Wednesday, and getting very little time to play on Wednesday night thanks to my own stupidity (why I end up stopping and watching every movie that airs on HBO I've no idea), I played into the wee hours on Thursday night and found a way to finish the game on time to write a full review when I got into the office today. I don't think I've ever played such a silly game so intensely.

You know, that's the thing about being a game reviewer — just like any other type of news story, game reviews have deadlines that must be met. But when you complain about having to work through the night and getting 3 hours of sleep because of playing a video game, NOBODY has any sympathy for you. It's a hard-knock life for us.

Anyway, you all are going to enjoy this game, if you haven't played it already. While the story is very weak, I am more than OK with a Batman story that's light-hearted after dealing with Grant Morrison and Heath Ledger for a while.

By the way, one of the other copy editors and I were just discussing whether or not the Associated Press should have an accepted style for what letters to capitalize in "Shark-repellent Bat Spray."

Anyway, I'm sure I'll have more to say about the game soon, for now just pickup the Journal's Gaming page on Saturday Page 5C.

This is about the SDI. I do hate the piont about the loss of backward use but the already did that with game from the GB Cool. So I had to rebuy a Sp that can run all the old games and my GameQube can too. But What I do love about the new DSI is the larger screens and that they are tobe Higher Def even better the the PSP. Thats what I read in my mag from gamestop. Can anyone tell me if this is true.
