So it's okay storywise how the DC characters don't just kick the MK characters' asses?

Somehow it seems (and admittedly I haven't played it) kind of self-defeating to play a wimpier version of a character...

I can't bring myself to play a T rated MK game. Even if it's a "hard" T, the censoring of the Joker's fatality was weak beyond all belief.

Regardless, I could never imagine myself buying this game ever. Rental maybe, but that's it.

So far so good. There are two story modes and the game plays out differently depending on which version you choose. I picked the DCU version first. It starts with Superman having just defeated Darkseid. Supes accidentally damages Darkseid's Mother Box right as he's trying to Boom Tube away. It causes some kind of bleed between worlds. That's how the MK characters show up. It's cool though because the fighting supports the actual story. After the Supes incident you see The Flash is in Metropolis helping Supes. The first fight is between Flash and Kano when he first shows up. Then Flash goes to investigate another bleed and then you get Flash vs another character (think this one was Catwoman). After a few fights that are story related there's a thing where Flash gets affected by the temporal/reality bleed and that's when Bats shows up to take him down. After the defeat they go to the Batcave so Bats can check out Flash and find out what happened. And another incident happens etc, etc. I really dig how it's all playing out.

Somehow it seems (and admittedly I haven't played it) kind of self-defeating to play a wimpier version of a character...


It doesn't really feel wimpier to me. There's still a shit ton of blood and the action is fantastic. The graphics are sweet too. Especially with the superpowers. Like The Flash will superspeed off one side of the screen and then onto the other then proceed to throw about a hundred punches in two seconds. Bad ass.

That's cool. Still think it is one-sided but glad you enjoy it.

I guess I am old school and am hoping against odds that they bring Tatsunoko vs. Capcom over...

They outsell everyone. I love Nintendo, just not when they put out stuff like WiiMusic.

And as far as their true flagship titles go, nobody can really make a better game than they can.

I just gotta disagree. I bought a Gamecube for #100 -- I regret it -- I had Metroid Prime, which was good, and I had Zelda Wind Waker, which didn't do it for me. Every other 1st Party game they have is Mario "X". Everyone I know that has a Wii doesn't use it -- it's collecting dust. I'd like to see that guy that only has a Wii, and considers himself/herself a serious gamer. What is the Wii's highest selling title right now? Wii Fit? Smash Bros.? I'm so done with Nintendo -- I pretty much have been since the NES. I completely ignored the Super NES for Sega Genesis -- the only game I think I ever played on 64 was Goldeneye -- myabe a little Mario Kart.

I would like to see their demographic -- who is buying this stuff? How often do you play your Wii compared to the 360 or PS3? I'm just a Nintendo hater.
