I have owned a Nintendo Wii since January of 2007. In that time I have played many many Mario related games. Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Strikers, Mario Kart Wii, Mario and Sonic (who is not a mustached plumber mind you) at the Olympic Games, Super Paper Mario, etc etc...
You see, Nintendo systems were the ONLY systems I owned up until I moved in with my wife 5 years ago. At that time she tainted me with a PS2. But I digress...
Mario games are basically the games I get excited for. Galaxy? Awesome. Mario Kart? Get ready to eat some red shells beetches. So color me ecstatic for New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
My other love is the character of Batman. And since 2007, only one Batman game (that I know of at least) has been released on the Wii. Lego Batman. The Lego licensed games are like crack. Not good for you, but you can't help it. However, the Lego Batman game...... ehhhhh.
So as I sit on Christmas morning unwrapping gifts, my world is turned upside down. For one, I get a 360. Natch. 2. I get New Super Mario Bros for me Wii. Double Natch. 3. I get Batman Arkham Asylum for said 360. Fantabulous.
Herein lies the problem. I get sidetracked very easily. So when I play a game, I want to beat it as quickly as possible, otherwise, I'll just let it sit unfinished. (See: Super Mario RPG for SNES, I still haven't finished it, and at this point, why even try?) What do I start with? Mario or Batman?
Well, being who I am, I decided to try BOTH. Give Mario some love one night, prey upon the villains of Gotham the other. How hard can it be, right?
Mustacheoed plumber? Or costumed vigilante?
