Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Re-Releases On January 14th
One of the more beloved games based around a comic book is without question Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. It originally released back in 2010, but then in 2014, it was delisted from Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network — possibly due to licensing issues.

It saddened a lot of fans because the game had a ton of heart and one of the better soundtracks, written and composed by Anamanaguchi. Fortunately, that period of delisting is about to be over.
As of January 14th, the Complete Edition of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World will be put back on platforms. Ubisoft made this announcement on their official website. The release will be available on the Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

It’s good to see this side-scrolling beat ’em up back online available for purchase after all of this time. Games like this can easily fall through the cracks, and that’s a shame because retro gaming fans deserve to check out these hidden gems at some point.
The Complete Edition includes a lot of treats too, such as all of the original DLCs. That’s plenty of content to enjoy in one package.
If you’re new to this comic book or the game, the premise pretty much revolves around defeating the League of Evil Exes in effort to win the heart of Ramona Flowers. Scott has a great group of friends to help him along the way, which is where the co-op feature comes into play.
You’ll move through a total of seven levels, battling waves of enemies until you get to the Ex boss fights. Along the way, you’ll gain experience and have the chance to upgrade your selected character in unique ways.
Since each character has a unique playstyle, there is plenty of incentive to switch things up depending on your particular play preference. You’ll also have the ability to collect coins that can then be spent in shops and acquire Gut Points, which can be used to revive players that get knocked out.
All in all, it’s a solid beat ’em up with a lot of heart and again, a great soundtrack that keeps the tempo going strong as you figure out a way to win over Ramona’s heart.

If you haven’t had the chance to play it prior to it being delisted back in 2014, then the Complete Edition is the perfect introduction. Its simple combat is surprisingly addicting and requires a certain level of skill.

In Crying Suns, you’re put in the role of a space commander that comes across a mysterious empire. The story elements really shine bright and give you a reason to progress further to find out more secrets about the empire’s history.
You’ll enjoy a procedurally generated universe with over 300 possible story events. That gives this game plenty of ways to play out depending on your progression and choices.

The story is lengthy, but because it’s broken up into six chapters, there are plenty of opportunities to take breaks and get yourself focused on what’s up ahead. There’s also a fast forward option if you do want to skip around to certain parts.
In addition to the gripping story, Crying Suns also makes use a frantic combat system that will throw a lot at you at once. After each playthrough, you’ll start picking up on the subtle details that make all the difference in coming out on top against other well-powered battleships and fleets.
This rogue-lite was inspired by FTL (Faster Than Light), but according to many players, it doesn’t quite match the elements that made FTL so popular. Still, Crying Suns is a good game definitely worth checking out if you enjoy rogue-lites with competent combat and a story that will take you on quite the journey.
The storytelling is probably where this game shines brightest. You can tell the developers at Alt Shift wanted to dig deep into building a fantastic universe filled with twists and turns that keep you guessing. Based on player reactions, they’ve mastered this aspect.
They don’t leave anything up to your imagination. Instead, they give you concrete plot points that you’ll get behind early on in the game. Sure, gameplay and strategy could be a bit better, but for a free rogue-lite, you certainly could do a lot worse.

You’ll just have to temper your expectations a bit if you’ve played FTL and came out of it really liking its designs and directions. Alt Shift did their best with the systems and resources they had available.
