Scott Pilgrim: The Powerful Presence of a Person

GP blogger, Blazeknyt writes, "The first game for my new Sony powerhouse (I recently acquired a PS3) ended up being Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Having only one controller, I was hoping to bust knuckles with strangers online, but the game doesn't support online multiplayer. While this initially saddened me, it got me thinking about the multiplayer scene, and it made me glad to see that Scott Pilgrim does NOT offer online multiplayer. So many games today focus on online multiplayer, (especially those FPSs) that it feels like local multiplayer is slowly losing its place. (or maybe it's just me) It's like everyone expects every game to support online multiplayer. Scott Pilgrim not offering online multiplayer also reinforces the old school arcade feeling that the game exudes. Remember those days of playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or X-Men in the arcades? Do you remember what going to the arcade felt like?" (Culture, PS3, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Xbox 360)

Scott Pilgrim made my summer last year. I especially loved the soundtrack

I really enjoyed reading this article. Very few people nowadays appreciate playing with someone face to face and misses out the stronger bonds formed between them that's why I miss arcades.
