Playing Scott Pilgrim, and it's a blast. I hope I can play it with friends eventually, because this game likes to take a big dump on anyone that tries to fly solo.

EDIT: Zwei: I was never interested in reading the series anyway, since I like the game and movie so much, but now I can safely say I will avoid this crybaby manifesto. You just saved me time AND money.
UNIT0918 - the only "I hate Scott Pilgrim" decisions I've heard came from friends who do that to anything that's overhyped (like Scott Pilgrim!) so it's not a personal attack on your favorite series or whatever.

Just have the epilogue left for Bayonetta. Went back and re-did chapters II & III to farm for concoction ingredients and bullets so that I can get a bunch of items. Haven't used them much up to now, but I'm ready for the game to be over and don't want to have to die repeatedly in the epilogue to finish it. It was fun, but the charm is wearing a little thin at this point. The QTEs are really starting to get on my nerves. I missed a few LPs that I might go back for. Also - where the hell are all the crows? I've caught every one I've seen and I've only got like 11 or 12. Supposedly there are like 51! o_O? It wouldn't surprise me if I missed 1 or 2, but 40? I'm sorry to say that I totally suck at the Alfheim mini-games. Seriously. I haven't been able to beat a single one. It's pathetic.

Played a little Death Smiles. Fun but short. Really short. I'll have to go back and try the other characters and other versions, see if that changes up the game any. If not - too short for the price.

Fixed. Me, not interested in fighting games. Not interested enough in the comic to buy it but would probably read it if it were laying around. Thought the movie was very good, but it was no Shaun of the Dead.

Basically, I've heard very few complaints from the SP fans about the movie, except that it didn't focus enough on the characters and their inner feelings and all that shit. Exactly what I loved about the movie; that its few emotional moments got their point across without running themselves into the ground, and the pace picked right back up. Apparently there were some differences that made a few scenes in the comic cooler; Ramona didn't have a mind-control chip and actually helped Scott beat Gideon's ass in the final battle. But the chip was a pretty fun plot device with how it was introduced.

"I just can't help myself... he has some way of getting into my head. ...no, I mean it, he really has a way of getting into my head."

But I think the movie spoiled me. There's just certain things that are amazing in motion that you just can't capture in still-frame comic pages. The movie's fight scenes were literally like video games brought to vivid life. Fucking shame it bombed at the box office, though this is one of the few DVD releases I'll actually buy when it hits the shelves. (for the record I generally buy maybe one new DVD movie every other year or so.)

Played more BB:CS today, and god do I HATE Carl Clover.

And man, Vanquish is the game that I wish the new Metroid was. I dont care how good the 2-D gameplay is, when you turn Samus into Yuna in power armor, you lose my purchase. Seriously, shit is insulting.

Not only that, but Other M's voice acting is even worse than that of FFX.

Currently playing--
Metroid: Other M (how Nintendo let the horrendous writing and voice acting out the door, I have no idea...)
King's Field: The Ancient City (PS2)

The Vanquish demo was certainly great, but I am disappoint that Sam still runs at the same speed no matter how slightly you tilt the analog stick. Also, you can't move while reloading behind cover. Hopefully at least my first gripe is fixed when the game is released.

Actually, didn't know anything about Scott Pilgrim until a few weeks before the game came out. And it's literally after I played the game that I started getting interested in the movie. I don't think I'll read the comics though unless I happen to see them lying around. I got really bored the first time I read it. The movie actually made it awesome.

I know how you feel, but replace "Carl Clover" with "Unlimited Hazama."
