First reviews are in and.....

They are pretty good. Joystiq called it "one of the best movie adaptations I have ever played" and IGN gave it a 8/10.  
 
Bryan Lee O' Malley, creator of the series, said it should be out in about five hours. I'm very stoked for this game, have been for awhile. Did you guys expect this game to receive positive reviews, so far, it's doing better then the movie :O

I have no interest in the movie. But this game looks pretty cool.

I don't really know anything about it so I may check it out, but for the record the movie looked terrible.

Yeah the movie looked like Michael Cera being ... Michael Cera with a video-gamey twist. But the game however, has my attention.

@Noodlearms: It's a 2D old school brawler. Everything from the design to the music is all arcade style, pixel awesomeness.

Looks like a fun beat'em-up that'll most likely ditch the relationship issues that really dragged down the comic for me.

Well, River City Ransom is a pretty cool game and this is the first attempt to copy it that I can remember.  If you are going to be derivitive, at least they picked something we haven't seen in 20 years.

Looks great, I dig beat em ups. Steam release?

@hematurge: Nah. It's only for xbox and ps3. A PC version would be pretty cool though.

Castle Crasher was really the first to copy and update it, the opening credits even give a nod to it when Fulp and Paladin enter their names in classic RCR style. Not to mention the play style, upgrades and hidden shops.
 
Scott Pilgram The Game looks really really really ....... really great! But there's no on-line coop which is beyond disappointing. My friends and I grew up playing RCR together (even have the password for my character stashed somewhere in my desk) but we all moved around for work, add in that for once we could all play (instead of the two player RCR limit) and the lack of online becomes absolutely heartbreaking. Why you wouldn't have Online Coop for this kind of game in this day and age is baffling. Here's hoping for a patch of some kind.

I hope so too. High Velocity Bowling launched with no online multiplayer and it got a patch. Let's hope the same happens for Scott Pilgrim.

Game "looks" cool at least, but I can live with waiting for the QuickLook and see how it plays before making any purchasing decisions.

@RockmanBionics: What if they never do a quick look of it? 
#14 Posted by jonnyboy (2920 posts) -

The statement "One of the best games I've ever played" may arouse my interest, however "One of the best movie adaptions I've ever played", all I can say is so what? That's just like saying it's "Surprisingly not shit" not really a recommendation.

#15 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4141 posts) -
@jonnyboy: They gave it a 5/5, so it can't mean "shit" in the terms your speaking in. If they said that and gave it a 3/5 then that'd make sense.

@gingertastic_10: I can't see that happening, it's not like it's the busy season or anything.

Put your minds at ease, QL is up now.

The gameplay of River City Ransom, the art style of Kings of Power 4 Billion Percent and the music of Anamanaguchi sound like a pretty awesome mix to me. I am interested in the game although at the same time slightly worrying about how long I could play it for without it getting boring.

I might just buy it because of it being River City Ransom, but the whole thing screams of ehhhhh.

#21 Posted by PK_Koopa (583 posts) -

Seems fun. If I can get 3 other people I'll buy it, otherwise I'll just wait for an offer.
