I saw the Joystiq post 10 minutes later in Google Reader. Google Reader can be so annoying like that.

YES!!!

A family friend introduced my brothers and I to Mario Kart since he had an SNES and we didn't. We had fun but only when he was around. When we finally picked up a playstation, this and the four-way splitter made for some awesome times on our terms. Its really just a Mario Kart knock-off, but as someone who's first Mario Kart was Double Dash, I LOVE THIS GAME.

Tempted to get the Dragon Age DLC as well, but, well, CTR will keep me busy. Now I NEED a second controller.

Actually, the game and the comic have different endings, and the game is light enough on plot that it doesn't spoil much of anything, really.

Also the game owns, it's basically a River City Ransom clone with awesome chiptunes.

I also share the Scott Pilgrim love. But I'm somewhat surprised that no one has chimed in about Madden. I was a fan of last year's game and thought the demo for this year was very well done. Anyone have thoughts on the full version?

I am not the biggest Scott Pilgrim fan in the world, but seeing as how it's led to a plain ol' fun mash-up of River City Ransom and the TMNT arcade game, at least some good's come from it.

Anyone beaten it yet? I'm currently slogging through the level with the twins.

I did! If you're having trouble, going to the secret shop in the alley will let you boost your stats in a hurry.

Wallace's shop? Yeah, I maxed out my strength and speed stats there, which helped a lot--the first two bosses die almost instantly now. The level's just so darn long, I run out of lives by the time I get there.

I'm maxed out on my levels--whatever the last technique is, I haven't figured out how you unlock it yet.
