After being released in early August on PSN, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is also available on XBLA since last week. Here is a 10 minute video that shows the second level of the game for once. Please note that the little green flashes you may see at the beginning of the video are glitches from the capture, not the game itself.
I have thought a lot about it and decided not to give you my detailed impressions on Scott Pilgrim. The main reason is that it clearly is not a game for me and I would not be objective enough, which is obviously something we do not want here. You will see in the video that the game is actually very challenging, even when playing on the medium difficulty setting with a level 7 character. True, I would not say I am giving it my best here, but I could not even get excited by the retro look of Ubisoft's title, though I usually love the pixels of my 2D old games. From what I have read though, it is definitely worth a shot when you like the genre and you can play with your friends at home (unfortunately there is no online co-op). So how about you make up your own opinion by downloading the demo now?
I have a hard time when a fat bomber rolls around on skated with a parasol cocktail in his hand, whilst doing a pseudo-philosophical monologue about life. It's neither funny or cool, it's just dumb. (2 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, but MGS1 has a good balance, 2 and onward doesn't. IMO. (2 Hours ago)
@Megido: that's the beauty of metal gear :). the mix of realism and (wtf) fantasy (3 Hours ago)

Especially on MGS4, he made it sound like he had a clog of saliva in his throat. (6 Hours ago)
@Megido: I think i'm the minority on this, but the VA for Snake (forgot his name) didn't click with me. (6 Hours ago)
I ca suspend my diabelief for walking tanks and cyber ninjas. Bomb planting fatsos with rocket powered rollerblades is a step too far. (8 Hours ago)
