Just found out the other day while wandering in to Gamestop, that there is a promotional offer for Lego Batman preorders. If you pre order the game (which looks to be full of wonderful and awesome) you get one of four Lego Batman keychains. the options are Batman, Robin, Joker and Catwoman. My local Gamestop said they could not get a specific keychain for me, but went ahead and put a note in the computer for a Catwoman anyway. Odds are, if you get in early to pick it up, then your odds of picking a keychain go up dramatically. So, MORE incentive to pick up Lego Batman. *sigh*

Also of major note, the PS2 version of the game is $29.99, while the 360, Wii and PS3 versions are $49.99. I only have a Wii & a PS2 so it was a tough call. Save money and risk waggle controls or have faith in the Wiimote...

The viral marketing campaign for HBO's new show True Blood is in full swing. True Blood is based on Charlaine Harris' 'Southern Vampire' mystery series. The main character, Sookie Stackhouse is played by Anna Paquin. (still catering to the geeks, and I love her for it!) True Blood starts Sunday, September 7th at 9pm.
