Well, it all started when my boys got a Wii from the grandparents for Christmas. If you’ve been following my Twitter feed, you already know I’m a Wii-Bowling Jedi. And, thanks to the patient tutelage of my six-year-old, I’ve become downright passable at Godzilla Unleashed.

So, when the lad spotted a used copy of Marvel Ultimate Alliance, I could hardly refuse.

Two days later, my son and I have averted nuclear disasters, freed S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and defeated a list of bad guys that includes Scorpion, Bullseye, Winder Soldier, Radioactive Man and Fin Fang Foom(!)

So, yeah. I’m a gamer. I game.

And now, I’m actually kinda eager to get my hands on this.

It’s a slippery slope. With a fire-breathing, oddly-named dragon on the other end of it.
