Apparently a series of graphic novels that references video games and such. I wouldn't know too much since I never read the comics. Just playing the (awesome) game.

There's also a movie that's now playing in theaters, which looks like it literally brings the comic books to life. The humor, video game references, and onomatopoeia intrigue me, so I plan on seeing the film for myself.

I keep seeing trailers for the film and I hate to say it, but it looks stupid. But then again my friend said the same thing and ended up enjoying the film (she must have watched one of those sneak peak things or something I'm guessing. My dad used to get into those all the time and watch all sorts of movies before they were officially released)

i'm playing black square unlocking fermion because the psp 2000 save games wont work on the 3000 i had to replace for broken unit.

i'm leaving that Scott Pilgrim thing alone, movie look like a cookie cutter live action tournament movie, fighting 7 ex, sounds like streetfight or mortal combat.

Just forget about the movie or comics and play the fscking game if you love classic arcade beat-em-ups.

>implying the live-action Street Fighter wasn't hilarious and the first ive-action Mortal Kombat wasn't awesome.

>implying you're not an aspie for completely separating yourself from a game just because it's based on something you don't like, regardless of how good the game actually is.


Fuck me, Bleach is a horrible anime but the DS fighting games are still awesome. A similar statement can be said for 90% of the junk that Jump Ultimate Stars' characters are from. I don't like the hipster Scott Pilgrim comic, think the movie will be entertaining, and can't wait to play the game. Suck it down and stop being an aspie, aspie.

Yay for caps filter evasion, sorry, but if I'm going to quote Shang Tsung, it has to be in caps.

I don't care about the Scott Pilgrim comics, the movie looks dumb but I'm going to watch it anyway, but the game looks awesome.

This.

I played the demo for the Scott Pilgrim game, and it reminded me a lot of the GBA version of the TMNT game. It's probably no coincidence, as both were made by UbiSoft, but I wonder if it was actually the same teams or at least some of the same people on the respective teams.

Got Monday Night Combat last night.

Great game, NEEDS MASSIVE REBALANCING. You can fucking snipe with the chaingun, and that's terrible.

Scott Pilgrim is hipster? Yeah, and Hot Topic is punk rock. Trust me, I live in Brooklyn, I know what hipsters are since they flock to my city like flies on shit, and they certainly do not rock Fantastic Four related t-shirts and talk about X-men/Japanese video games.

Much like the movie (which I saw-fantastic by the way, probably the BEST video game movie not based on an actual video game since...Tron?) and the graphic novel series (which I own) the game is pretty great. There's a vibe to it that I haven't had since the beat em up arcade scene was alive in the 90s. for $10 bucks, you could do a lot worse, but the lack of online multiplayer is a shame. It's a tad difficult, but Battletoads it ain't.
