So we have Dissidia and Batman coming out tomorrow, all with pretty high pre-orders. Gamestop will be open @ midnight, I'm picking up Dissidia then, I got Batman from Amazon w/ the $5 off coupon + free shipping.b

All 3 games for $50 (plus added widescreen support for the first two) was enough for me to bite. I really donít see many future Wii purchases for me though. Maybe a future Mario or Zelda game, but nothing else is on the horizon.

I know I'm probably all but alone in this with my niche tastes, but the game I'm excited about coming out this week is Mana Khemia II. I pre-ordered it with Amazon over a month ago.

I'll probably get the Metroid Prime trilogy before long too, having never played any of the series, but considering the timing of its release, it will have to wait. I doubt I'll be getting either Dissidia or Batman.

Dissidia is tempting just for what it represents. But like Cross Edge, it just doesn't look good enough on its own merits for the the crossover aspect alone to make it worth a purchase to me.

I already have Dissida. About 15 hours in. A lot to learn and there are still some things I'm confused by.

might budget buy dissidia, GI gave it a 6.5 and it doesn't look like something i'd want to explore day 1.

Seems like a quick cash in that offers nothing as far as expanding any universes.

Definitely getting batman, I was skeptical early on but the consensus seems to be it's excellent. Plus it was 48 bucks on amazon and I snagged it while it was lower.

This looks like it could be worthy.

Yeah, forgot about that. Especially after playing Shadow Complex, I'm high on the whole 2D metroid-like gameplay these days.
