I'm best known for my extensive work in the fields of this and that. I tend to be better at that, though I have more fun with this.
I'm an odd jobber with an even personality who isn't afraid to roll with the punches but prefers to dodge them when able.

I'm really torn between Dissidia and BlazBlu.
Dissidia is an interesting take on the fighter mechanics with characters I know and love and a lot of stuff to do. It's probably lacking in the story department and I know it is lacking in the multiplayer department (no online, just adhoc).
BlazBlu is possibly one of the greatest fighters ever made with definitely the best story of any fighter ever made (and a good story for games in general). Again, tons of shit to do. However, it is also a highly technical fighter that you really have to pour your soul into if you hope to get anything out of it. Of course, the pay off is that you can then use those learned abilities to show off in what I hear is a lag-free online rumble fuck.
Blaz is probably higher on my list, but I do question my ability to sustain myself through a technical fighter.

From an anime fighting game fan's perspective, I would recommend Dissidia first because it's so different. But if you don't already have X, Y, Z, and the other lying around, then that's a harder call to make.

X, Y... Z...? The other?

Well I didn't want to sound self-important by name-dropping, but if you've already got domestically-released stuff like Guilty Gear, Battle Fantasia, Fate/Unlimited Codes, King of Fighters 98 UM, or any number of import doujin games on the PC, then it's not nearly as fresh. I mean, BlazBlue is great don't get me wrong, but it's a 2D fighter and follows the 2D fighter formula. Dissidia has less competition and more dramatically differentiates itself from that competition.

Ah, I see. Yeah, that's one of the things that's making it hard to make this decision.
