Game is available at a library branch just outside Maryland Heights.
In Batman: The Brave and the Bold, the Dark Knight returns for adventure, this time on the Nintendo Wii. Once again, super villains put Batman to the test to save the day.

Kids lined up in Westport Plaza to sit on Santa's lap. We asked what they wanted the big jolly man to bring them.
We spoke with 10 more kids in Maryland Heights about what they hope Santa leaves under the tree this year. If you missed our first video, you can check it out here. Retro Easy Bake Ovens were on the list for plenty of girls while older boys and girls alike hope Santa brings them each a Nintendo DSi. Parents may be feeling the pinch this Christmas, but most of them nodded and winked when asked if Santa was likely to grant their child's wishes. Some are cutting back on things for themselves, while others are cutting back on holiday dinner so they can put more under the tree. Check out our video on how Maryland Heights parents are cutting back this holiday season.
