Scott Pilgrim VS. The World

scottpiglrimmovieposter

It’s a special episode this time around because we have our first guest host here on the podcast, long time listener Charlie! Our amazing threesome of epicness reviews the 2010 film Scott Pilgrim vs the World.  Scott pilgrim is based on the comic book series by Bryan Lee O’Malley directed by Edgar Wright and starring Michael Cera.  The story follows twenty something hipster Scott and his quest to get with the girl of his dreams named Ramona.  Along the way, he will have to defeat her seven evil exes, win a battle of the bands, and grow up.  The film is a weird mish-mash of reality and video games.  Bad guys turn to coins after they die, amazon.com uses the inter dimensional highway located within people’s dreams to deliver packages, and Macaulay Culkin’s brother Kieran Kyle Culkin is the best actor in the film.  Yeah, the film is THAT weird.

Thanks again Charlie for recording this episode with us!

Dragon Age

Dragon Age Origins Box ArtThis is a special episode where we review not a fantasy movie, but a fantasy game.  Dragon Age: Origins is a 2009 western role playing game from Bioware for the PC, Xbox 360, and ps3.  In this game you choose one of six different origins, choose between three classes, pick your gender, and create the look of your character.  The storyline isn’t anything too unusual.  You’re a special warrior that is called upon to save the land from darkness, but the game really shines in the writing.  The world is detailed and well realized.  Characters feel like real people.  Your choices mold how the story progresses and ends so you feel emersed in this world like few others.

We were intending to have this game only cover Dragon Age: Origins, but Dragon Age 2 (the sequel) had recently came out and bits of it kept slipping into the podcast.  We were both only in Act I of Dragon Age 2 when we recorded this so there aren’t any Dragon Age: 2 storyline spoilers.  However, we do speak at length about the game mechanics and how they compare to the previous game.  We also talk at length on video game rpgs in general.

And we complain.  A lot.
