Arkham Asylum is on sale for $4.99 on Steam. I recommend it. Sometimes it's nice to spend time in a world where you can deal with crime and corruption simply by punching it.

And I think this is awesome.

I, for one, am super cool with seeing a bunch of languages screaming past me in the federated time-line, despite the fact that I can only read english.
