Okay, so I finished the graphic novel series. Loved it. The last book was a bit on the philosophical side, but then it pretty much had to be, really.
So have I moved on with my life now? Um… not quite.
Yep. Scott Pilgrim the Video Game. And this one is a blast for one reason in particular. You see, one of the favorite games of the creator of the series, Bryan Lee O’Malley was River City Ransom for the old 8-bit Nintendo. It was also a favorite of my brother and mine.
You can see the similarities. Of course, rather than just make it a re-hash of RCR, they’ve added a lot of other stuff to it, meaning it’s got all the nostalgia value, but with a lot more going on so it can be appreciated now in its own right. A lot of fun, Gill and I have been playing it the last couple of days. The only downside is that it has no online multiplayer, so I can’t play it with Wyatt or Jason (Boooo!)
Oh well, once I finish playing this I should have Scott Pilgrim out of my system…
…until the DVD comes out.
