No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle & Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars
We last looked at both No More Heroes 2(NMH2) and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom(TvC), when they debuted on the Nintendo Channel after their releases.
If you do not remember when TvC and NMH2 debuted, take a look at the image below:

As the image above shows, TvC debuted 3-weeks faster than NMH2 did, though they were both released on January 26, 2010.
If you would like to read Tatsunoko vs. Capcom’s debut data, or No More Heroes 2’s debut data, here are the links to the original stories:
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars’ Data Debut Breakdown
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle’s Data Debut Breakdown
It has been about 7-weeks since I showed the data for No More Heroes 2, and 10-weeks for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
How have both games been performing since their debuts?  Let’s take a look!

Player Increase Since Debut:
No More Heroes 2 has added 3,347 more players, reporting data since it debuted on March 8, 2010.

“Total” Game-Play Hours Reported/Increased:
No More Heroes 2 has 101,594 Total Hours reported, an increase of 45,313 hours since it debuted.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has 361,266 Total Hours reported, an increase of 278,611 hours since it debuted.
Amazon.com Sale Ranks & Advertised Prices:
No More Heroes 2‘s Amazon.com sale rank is #1,247 and the current selling price is $43.23.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom‘s Amazon.com sale rank is #947 and the current selling price is $46.99.
GameRankings.com Review Score Averages/Changes:
No More Heroes 2‘s review score average is 84.33%, based on 39 reviews.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom‘s review score average is 85.65%, based on 39 reviews.

Thoughts/Questions:
I still have not played either No More Heroes 2 or Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
I think the data shows that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom’s online play(I think), has helped it to steadily increase since it debuted, in the average hours “Per person” reported.
No More Heroes 2 seems to be sitting pretty close to the number of hours, “Per person” that was originally reported with its debut.
If you have played them, do you find yourself still playing the games, or did you play them for a while and have since stopped?

Thoughts:
It’s interesting to me that No More Heroes 2 took 41 days to debut on the Wii’s Nintendo Channel, and it’s barely over the 50,000 hours mark.
I guess I’m surprised because I thought the game was highly anticipated and that it would debut quicker than it has.
I do think that looking at the original No More Heroes’ numbers show that there is a great possibility for this game to end up doing well.
Perhaps No More Heroes 2 will end up being another “slow burn” title on the Wii.
Questions:
Have you played either or both of these games?  If so, do you think they’re worth a buy or a rent?
I’m honestly not interested in either of them, but I do find it interesting the following that Suda 51 and his games seem to have.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Beats Down No More Heroes 2?

February 17, 2010
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars Beats Down No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle?

On January 26, 2010, Wii owners in America were given two very anticipated games to buy, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars.
Some Wii owners probably bought just No More Heroes 2, some probably just bought Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and some Wii owners probably bought both games(lucky, all of you!).
Which game is being played more?
(click image to enlarge)

Your eyes aren’t seeing things, here’s the beat down breakdown:
“Total Hours” Reported Played:
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom debuted this week on the Nintendo Channel, 20 days after it released, with 82,655 “Total Hours” reported played on the Nintendo Channel.
No More Heroes 2 reported zero “Total Hours” reported played*.
Number of Players Reporting Data:
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom had 7,003 players reporting data for its first showing on the Nintendo Channel.
No More Heroes 2?  None reported yet.
GameRankings.com Review Scores Average:
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom’s review score average is 85.78% based on 34 reviews.
No More Heroes 2’s  review score average is 87.27% based on 22 reviews.
Amazon.com’s Sales Rank:
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars‘s Amazon.com sale rank is #247 and is currently selling for $45.99.
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle‘s Amazon.com sale rank is #400 and is currently selling for $46.99.
Thoughts:
If you’re saying, “I’ve played No More Heroes 2 and beaten the game, why aren’t there any hours showing?”
A game must first get to 50,000 “Total Hours” reported, before the data appears for the game(at least that’s the trend with all game debuts, 50,000+ “Total Hours reported).

I find it interesting that Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is a series first debut on the Wii in America, and No More Heroes 2 is a sequel, but Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is seemingly outperforming No More Heroes 2.
There were “rumored” January NPD numbers, that showed Tatsunoko vs. Capcom sold twice as many units as No More Heroes 2.  If those numbers are true, I wonder if that’s because Capcom actually advertised Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and Ubisoft didn’t advertise No More Heroes 2, with a television commercial?
I do find it troubling for No More Heroes 2 that the game hasn’t debuted on the Nintendo Channel yet.
One big reason I think is because No More Heroes 2 doesn’t have any online play of any sort.
If 50,000 is the minimum “Total Hours” for a game to debut, that would be only 5,000 players, playing the game for 10 hours, and having that reported on the Nintendo Channel.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has online multi-player, so the players of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom are more likely signed up on the Nintendo Channel to have their data reported.
Questions:
Did you purchase either No More Heroes 2 or Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, or both of them?  If so, what do you think of them?  I haven’t purchased either one, though I am interested in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, because I haven’t purchased a good fighting game in a long time.
If you’re interested in these games, you can see them on Amazon.com and what the current selling price is, on the pictures below:
