I don't know if I've made this *quite* abundantly clear yet, but I am a huge Batman fan. I can't claim to be the biggest. I have not, for example, ever worn a Batsuit or gone out to fight crime. Not unless you count riding around with my friend Marty looking for his (ex now) wife's stolen bike (we totally recovered it, because we're awesome like that). I can't claim to be the biggest Batman geek out there but I'll be damned if I let someone try to tell me that Superman would win if they were in a fight.
But! Right now we are in the same place at the same time, so I am at last getting to enjoy some Batmany goodness! It's super exciting. So exciting, in fact, that I spent money I don't really have obtaining all the DLC for it. Which brings me to the actual point of this.
I love Robin.
I realize that makes me worthy of mocking, but I can't help it. You can keep Dick Grayson. He's cool enough as Nightwing, but I never really liked him as Robin. And Jason Todd? Please. Him dying was the best thing that ever happened with Jason Todd. (The second best was him coming back as Red Mask) It's Tim Drake I can't get enough of. (I know he's now Red Robin, but for various reasons I haven't read the comics yet so he's still Robin to me)
My only issue is that my brother is currently the one playing. And he's more interested in playing the story than entertaining me as Tim. *Sigh*
PS. Surprised I made it through the holidays? Because I am!
