So here it is, my full thoughts on not just why Batman is a super hero but why he is quite possibly the best super hero ever.
Get ready for the long haul on this one folks.

Then in our main topic we talk about World of Warcraft vs. Star Wars: The Old Republic. With Star Wars The Old Republic beginning beta testing, there’s a lot of buzz surrounding the release of this game. Will WoW retain its’ throne or will Star Wars usurp the the reigning MMORPG king?
