Bonus Round has always been one of my favorite features at Game Trailers, and I really enjoying their new versus series. For those not aware, Batman Arkham City has been confirmed to be coming to Wii U next year, and we know that some sort of Assassin’s Creed game is making it’s way as well, though which one (be it Revelations, or the new one next year ) we’re not actually sure about. There has even been talks about a Wii U exclusive Assassin’s game. That being said, both franchises are coming to Wii U next year (woot!), so which one do you prefer?
I don’t mean to discredit the new Batman series (the first game was a big surprise), but frankly I have always been more of an Assasin’s fan. I never played the first game (and I really should just so I understand better how this all started), but I can’t deny that from 2 on I have been hooked. You know what you get in the gameplay, but the story is what has really gripped me with the series. That, and the amazing european scenery that they have masterfully recreated.
That being said, who doesn’t want a really good comic book hero game? Arkham City looks fantastic, and is definitely on my list of Wii U must have games come launch (I assume it will be a launch game, given the fact it will have already been released the previous holiday). However, if you only had 50 to 60$ to spend and these were your two choices of games when Wii U hits, which would you get? The PC version of Assassin’s tends to get a 4 to 5 month delay anyways, so for me the choice is obvious.
