I was lucky enough to see Scott Pilgrim in theaters just before it was pulled. The theater was empty aside from my cohorts and I. Just the way I like it. I can be loud and obnoxious and that makes me happy. The movie (I thought) was incredible. Lot’s of fun, lots of action, nerd references left and right. A video game a comic book lovers delight.
So what better to follow up the movie? The game of course. Just like in the movie you must battle through Romona Flowers’ evil ex’s to win her love and prove you can be with her. In sweet 8-Bit graphics. Check out more info past the break. PLAY AS OR PLAY WITH YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS
