    YEEEEEEEEEES. FIRE EMBLEM IS THIRD. AND that doesn’t include download sales. Does it include bundles?

    Shame it wasn’t first however. I would really, really like to see it sell better, and for Nintendo to get the releases out faster here. The last two months have been painful to wait through.

    Injustice looks like one heck of a good game. Of course, it’s great that it’s seeing commercial success too, but I think Netherrealm did an outstanding job with that one! It doesn’t seem as mechanical as their fighters some times have. No matter what, Defiance sticking in the chart, an mmo selling the number of physical copies to do so, seems noteworthy to me.

    A games chat position doesn’t always reflect good sales these days.

    @2, Injustice is pretty damn good. The story is short (what do you really expect for a fighting game?) but excellent. I really enjoyed playing through it. I lose interest in fighters quickly but this is worth it for any DC/comic fan.

    I’m enjoying Injustice a whole lot. Spent about five days before I went back to playing anything else.

    Is it the greatest top 5 charts of the year or what?
    - Two new IPs (Defiance & Injustice, I know both are based on existing non-game material but they ARE new gaming IPs)
    - A superb reboot (Tomb Raider)
    - Finally, 2 sequels that are actually great (BioShock I and Fire Emblem A).

    Also, super happy to see a DC gaming doing good that’s not Batman Arkham. Injustice and Netherrealm FTW!
