Game review haiku: "Batman: Arkham City"

The Batman is pissed
Blobs need a good ass kicking
Greatest game evah

Sneaky cat hottie 
Teases the Batman with claws
Green eyes whip cleavage

Why won't this crazy
Lunatic just off himself
Ass with a bowtie

Little fat bald man
Dude when will you ever learn
Penguins can't fly

< JB's review: A+ / Gameplay, graphics, story all top-notch. Kudos to the music score.  Can be difficult, with too many options during combat.  But, the zipline/glide method of transportation is super cool.  I'm miles from finishing, and it's quite possibly the best game I've ever played.  The thugs talk a lot of smack, so I always end every fight with "I'm the effing Batman, dummy!"  If you like the Batman, you'll love this game.  If you like action/adventure games, this is the new king.  It's that good.

GoPro cameras in action with a BASE jump

I get vertigo when they accidentally clang heads. Thanks to F-Stoppers for the link.

< For kicks, I went to the Apple Store today, and demanded an iPhone 6 from the clerk. As the smoke wafted from his glued-on Vulcan ears, he tried to explain that there was no such thing. Disgruntled, I flashed the Spock salute, and said, "May The Force Be With You." He collapsed into the fetal position, banging his head like Dustin Hoffman in "Rain Man." I try to leave rainbows wherever I go. 

Review of the iPhone 4S coming soon (see below).

< iTimelapse rig with the iPhone 4S and Philip Bloom pocket dolly.

< With some long distance cropping, it holds up pretty well.  IPhone 4S shot.  Photoshop.

< Pano love with iPhone 4S.  Three shots stitched together in PS.  Universal City as seen from Mulholland about 11:15 am.

< IPhone 4S.
