    An Epic Pilgrim's Journey

    Welp. All I can say is that this game is pretty much epic multiplied by awesome squared. Then add ten… thousand. Does anyone remember the Turtles in Time (Ninja Turtles) for SNES? This is exactly that – But more.

    Scott Pilgrim is an ode to old school 8-bit games. Everything is true to the era – the music is EXCELLENT, the graphics quality, while 8-bit looking, runs really smooth, and the game play is simple and fun. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not simple in that you walk around pressing one button the entire game. No, it has a good level of depth to it. While being similar to old side scrolling beat-em-ups, SP adds in an RPG element to the game. This includes everything from leveling up to unlocking new moves to even buying various items and power-ups in stores. Simply put – This game is a must own for all ps3 users (and 360 of course). Despite the fact that there is no online play, that did not affect me in the least. This game perfectly makes me feel nostalgic in every way – including having to play games with 3 other friends next to me on the couch. This brings people together for a great time and just makes the game more enjoyable.

    Like I said, please buy this game. The repeatability of it is endless as you will always have fun playing, and did I mention it’s just… amazing?

      Let's get one thing straight: yes indeed, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is heavy on the references and many a past video game will be mentioned or at the very least illicit a "hey I remember that!". 3D Dot Game Heroes, released earlier this year, did the same thing although its focus was primarily on one thing: Legend of Zelda, and specifically the first one. Scott Pilgrim's on the other hand come from all over the place from Mega Man to River City Ransom to Turtles in Time and many othe...

      A Beat-Em-Up Filled With References Everywhere... 0

      Note - Videos are from the XBLA version, but the PSN version is pretty much identical for the most part.     When you have a movie coming out that is filled with video game references or reminds yourself of your gaming past time, it sounds pretty cool in concept. That is the case with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World starring Michael Cera as he dates Ramona, but he has to deal with her seven exes. All of this seems like a cool video game as well as Ubisoft Montreal decided make an old-school beat-em-...
