Batman is without a doubt my favorite superhero.

Long-time Batman fans would know the point of Batman isn't someone who's a 'hero' in the sense of being a glorified problem solver.

So a guy at Gamestop told me to use rubbing alcohol to clean the game, because it was erosion that caused the problem. And ewhaddya know? It works now! Thank God!

Hey guise so I always lose my Pokemon games, but I didn't lose Black, it's just stopped working. I think it was my little sister's fault. The part that's "read" by the DS on the game card has a littler wear. Sigh All my shinies, my first shiny, and event Pokemon are gone.
