ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
For those of you who are lonely and looking for a cool person with whom to play video games, I do not recommend Batman, what with his shouty nature over things like, I don't know, triggers. (via Crave Online)
Only if he was playing a Terminator game…
Why do so many of these “bat-parodies” entail beating the crap out of Robin? Funny for like 2 seconds and then just seem to to take it too far.
Don’t forget batsuit nipple jokes!
Because Robin’s a prat?
I thought Robin was a dick?
The gentleman who plays Batman is apparently a professional Jack Sparrow impersonator.
Yeah, I think there’s some Napoleon Dynamite in there too.
No, I mean literally.
Ah, nothing like an elaborate project based purely on a pun.
Not funny. Make me feel like puking.
That guy needs to play some Bocchi ball instead.
Not that funny to me. Not because it shows Batman to be an abusive psychopath – he’s been one since almost forever now – but because the premise doesn’t work for me.
Also, Superman would whop his ass.
My parents are DEEAAAAAAD!
It’s good I thought. The Batvoice is perhaps even less annoying than Bales.
Wow, some jaded people on here, I loved this. Robin just wants to kick back but Batman can’t let go of his demons, as usual.
I would like to note that I enjoyed this.
Worth it for the Mortal Kombat joke… (See also
LoLs. My roomie and I almost 20 years ago used to take turns getting angry at the other over various Sega game victories/defeats.
Usually it was Mutant League Football. That game was fucking awesome.
Wired controllers for an xbox 360? Heresy.

There is nothing more disappointing than finding out that someone whose work you have always admired was not a divine, magical genius, but a deeply flawed human being.
This is one in a series of essays about enthralling books. I asked my friends and colleagues to recommend a book that took over their life.
