We still haven’t gotten around to buying the original Batman: Arkham Asylum, but I did play the demo released through X-Box Live. It was a rather good game and really did a great job of capturing the spirit of Batman. Sneaking around Arkham and taking out baddies using a variety of gadgets really put you in the Dark Knight’s shoes.

Daddy was an adventurer. He liked hunting and fishing. He was so serious about fishing that he bought a boat and made his own lures. He even went fishing during a thunderstorm. it scared my mother so much that she vowed to never go fishing with him again. He like to try new things. Once he bought some queen bees and had his own beekeeping farm in our backyard. He would dress in his special clothing and tend to the bees everyday.
Now how the heck do you bluff? There are dozens of ways. One method is to increase your bet and raise other players. They will think that you must have a good hand and that perhaps they should drop out. This doesn’t always work, however. You must effectively use you poker face.
Everyone wishes to have a degree in something. Well get them that degree from the University of Everything. This place has a wide variety of novelty diplomas to honor special and not so special achievements.
