Tonight we're talking comics and video games:
A new creative team and design for Bat-Girl aka Barbara Gordon has been introduced and of course people are pissed off about it. We'll talk about that as well as taking a cosplay approach to designing future comic book characters and what it might mean.
On the games front. Sony has crosses the 100 million mark across all consoles and hand held devices. Does this mean Sony is back on top? or are these numbers a bit more decpetive than they look?
we'll talk about that and in between we'll go on 15minute tangets....so I guess we'll see where it all goes.
