This Tuesday, there are two games that I want to purchase, so I thought I would ask for thoughts from you all.

Punch Out for the Wii is an updating/reimagining of one of my favorite games of all time. This has some new characters as well, so it's not just a straight up reissue if you will. Info at http://www.punchoutwii.com/

I haven't downloaded the UFC demo, but from all I hear on the Net, this game was awesome, even with only being able to play in the demo as Chuck Liddell and Shogun Rua. They have so many fighters in this game. Info at http://www.ufcundisputed.com/#/home.

So, do you guys have a preference on which game to buy? Is anyone like me and planning on probably buying both?

I'm all over Punch Out, whereas I'd wait on UFC for reports to confirm if it actually works like it should. (I'm a little skeptical on what kind of game engine would actually combine striking, grappling, G&P, and submissions in a fluid manner that doesn't result in either every match ending in 3 minutes, or every match going to the judges.)

Same from me. I played the PS3 demo and couldn't figure out how to G&P. I'd get some good knockdowns and before I could even get over to them, "He lets him up!" and they get up.

I was unaware of such a thing. I am very happy to hear of such a thing.

That was terrific, especially the "bite like a mosquito" line. "Come over here, I'll tell you what that means"...SMACK.

To answer the question properly, my shopping list for Tuesday is ordered like this:

1)- UFC 2009 Undisputed
2)- Boom Blox Bash Party
3)- Wrestlemania XXV (blu-ray)
4)- Punch-Out!!

I won't likely get all four, but UFC is the priority. I have a couple friends that will also be picking up the game and I want to punch them all in their faces. And I also want to compete against them in this game.

Boom Blox is great fun and by all accounts, the sequel is greatly improved. ALL BABY COWS ARE LOST

I'd like to watch Shawn/Flair again.

And Punch-Out... see, I saw all the ads and in Canada, it's selling for $59. $10 cheaper than UFC, yes, but $10 more than Boom Blox, and I will likely play Boom Blox a lot more and enjoy it a lot more. I have a bad history of buying into big hype for Nintendo titles and then never really playing them much. So I don't know. I only have enough trade credit at EBGames to take a bite out of one game - buying three in one day seems excessive, even for one as foolish as I can be.

I'll be picking up UFC: Undisputed for my PS3, and so you should all add me and prepare to get stomped (bpmfd). Also, my mother's coming to town that night so she should be prepared to be annoyed by my incessant UFC playingness.

As a capper to this thread, I went with buying UFC for XBox yesterday. I usually don't care about the online component of games, but when I saw that Punchout doesn't have it (only local multiplayer and I won't get takers in my house), I realized I can wait for awhile.

The UFC game is super fun right now, as I am in career mode with Matt "The Doctor" Trick.

You went with UFC? Oh dear...you might want to say 'sayonara' to an unbruised face.





That's Japanese for 'goodbye'.

I don't think they're fighting the PS4 as much as fighting the PS3 and the XBOX 360. The entry price is still pretty high for the new systems and it's just giving people another way to get them.
