It's Watchmen Vs. Riddick!

Well, at least over who gets the top spot in your download queue.  Both Warner Bros. Interactive and Atari have loaded up the Xbox Live Marketplace (and in WB’s case, PSN as well) with their own respective movie-based content...

Watchmen: The End is Nigh is WB’s prequel brawler set in the Watchmen universe, but 10 years prior to the events of the graphic novel and upcoming film.  Featuring the odd couple of Rorschach and Nite Owl as they duke it out with thugs, prisoners, bikers, and other sideburned hooligans, this download-only title will set you back 1600 Points/$20…kind of a steep price for a game that lasts about as long as the movie that it’s based on.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena from Atari is another entry in the ever-deepening mythology of our favorite Furyan Riddick (played by the gruff Vin Diesel) as he cuts another bloody swatch across the cosmos with his signature Ulak knives.  This is just a taste of the full game, due out on April 7th.

So, which one will you be downloading first?
