REVIEW – Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World hit cinemas in August 2010 to general acclaim, but fairly middling box office performance. It was widely praised for its editing and adaptation of the comics by Canadian comic artist Bryan Lee O’Malley, who originally wrote the series between 2004 and 2010. Naturally, a video game tie-in was in order, seeing as games already influenced the series, and Ubisoft was tasked with its creation. Normally, movie licensed games have a reputation for being cheaply made, quick and dirty cash grabs to capitalise on a movie’s launch period, but Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game (what a mouthful) instead gained a cult following for being the exact opposite. It ended up being a love letter to the comics as well as to games in general, bearing little in common with the movie other than the source material. Unfortunately it got delisted from Playstation Network and Xbox Live digital storefronts in 2014, due to presumed license expiry from Universal Studios, but it has now been given a second chance in 2021.

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

REVIEW – Touhou Luna Nights

The enigmatic Touhou Project series of bullet hell shoot-em-ups is either one you are a hardcore fan of or one you simply haven’t even heard of in the slightest. It has a very long history, dating back to 1996 as an independently developed game for NEC’s PC-98 series of personal computers popular in Japan throughout the 90’s. It has grown significantly since then, of course, amassing what can amount to a major corporate brand in terms of recognition (in Japan), yet is still independently operated by the sole creator, ZUN. As a result, various fan-created media has been made, from comics to music and, as we are here to discuss with this review, games. Touhou Luna Nights is one such game, one of the few that has made its way to Switch, and it is a sight to behold.

Set Guns Ablaze in 2021 as ITTA gets the Super Rare treatment!

Super Rare Games just announced their first physical rendition of 2021 and what’s a better way to celebrate than slaughtering horrific beasties with a bunch of guns. Not convinced enough yet? Why not pretend some of these monsters are 2020 personified along with all the ailments from the year behind us. That’s gotta provide some solace when waking up to a grim fate as our hero does in ITTA.

That’s right, the twin-stick shooter, ITTA, is getting the Super Rare Games treatment. As it’s the new year, the game is getting a bit of extra attention with two physical editions. The regular physical version is limited to 3000 copies, while the steelbook edition will only get 2000 prints. Both go on sale for £27 and £39.50 respectfully from Thursday 7th January from 6pm GMT. As usual, this rare print physical release includes all the content on its cart, a full-colour manual, interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and three trading cards randomly selected from the five-card set. SteelBook versions come with the standard case included, with both boxes bundled in a sleeve.

Check out the full press release after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

REVIEW – Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

With the impending release of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still seemingly so far away, fans have been wanting to see more of its world for the past three years since they finished up the original Nintendo Switch launch title. Out of the blue though, Nintendo provided, but this time in the form of a prequel from the acclaimed studio Omega Force at Koei Tecmo with Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Set during the build up and climax of Calamity Ganon’s rebirth, established as taking place 100 years prior to the events of Breath of the Wild, Hyrule is now at war against the rising forces of Ganon’s minions as they prepare to counter the great evil.

REVIEW – No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

The original No More Heroes set itself a well-earned spot in the cult classic pantheon for its grindhouse aesthetic and harsh, often self-deprecating criticism of hardcore violence. A lot of this likely flew over the general audience’s heads as they saw the crass Travis Touchdown swearing and cutting down droves of faceless goons in a ridiculously over the top fashion. So a second go was in order, despite the previous game’s generally conclusive ending, which also now ironically teased that a sequel won’t ever happen. The United Assassin’s Association has now fully become the organisation that was only suggested in the first game, a ruthless entertainment industry leader in recreational killing for the masses. Travis now finds himself bound to a story he doesn’t want to be a part of in order to seek vengeance for the death of his best friend, let the bloodshed begin anew.

REVIEW – No More Heroes

Over the years, Nintendo has built itself a reputation for catering to the all-ages market, with even their more mature titles never really pushing anything beyond the teen demographic. This extends even into third party efforts, with many exclusives still being aimed at younger or general audiences. So to have a game come along where the protagonist’s first line of non-narration dialogue is a hard expletive right after he’s decapitated a pair of guards, blood exaggeratingly spraying dozens of feet into the air is both astonishing and also very exciting. Welcome to the brutal world of No More Heroes, where assassins fight each other to the death to attain the glorious ranking title of number one.
