Arkham 2

Watched the Spike TV Video Game Awards. Well, watched the trailers, a few of the awards and Jack Black, but fast-forwarded through the rest. What really caught my eye was the trailer for the next Batman game. It's by the same folks who did Arkham Asylum which is great. I'm purposely taking my time with that game so it lasts longer. It's that good. Here's a link for the site to the new trailer if you missed the awards or don't have patience for all those strobe lights:

The J Man doesn't look good. Could this be a video game version of the Last Laugh storyline? I like how Marvel re-told their Civil War in Ultimate Alliance 2, so that may not be such a bad thing. After the Arkham game, my hopes are high!

This is what happens without editors

I'm Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the SKINNERS series. Here you'll find various ramblings about movies, video games, TV, and...oh yeah...those books I write. If there's anything you'd like to discuss, just let me know. I try to update whenever the mood strikes me, so feel free to leave comments. There may be some occasional foul language, but anyone who's too easily offended probably doesn't read my stuff anyway.

Free Stuff

Here's how it goes. As usual, I've got my truckload of promo covers from EOS Books. I'll be going to some conventions, so I hope to see you there and I'll gladly sign your books. If you can't make it to a con, just email me your name, address and any inscription so I can send you a signed cover.

BONUS ---> If you would be so kind as to write up a review for any or all Skinners books and publish it on a site like, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or any other major review site, I can send you something extra. I made up some bookmarks (which I'll sign) and I've even put together some Shimmy's VIP passes (which I'll also sign). Can't guarantee the passes will get you into a real strip club, but I think they look pretty cool. Send me a link to your review along with your name, address and inscription, and I'll get these out to you as well.
