Scott, Ramona, and all of her crazy exes are back! Many years after Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was delisted from Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Store, the game finally returns to modern platforms. Having fond memories of my time with it, I gladly picked up the rerelease.

You’re Too Buggy For Me Right Now Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is a fascinating game in its current state. On PC, it’s visually stunning (sorry console players). I’m really into the story it’s trying to tell. Also, the soundtrack is fantastic!

But it’s also incredibly buggy. In a two-hour stretch of gameplay, I had to restart the game on three separate occasions to address game-breaking glitches. Here’s what went down and here’s why I’ll come back to this game a little later when ore of its issues have been resolved.

(NOTE: I will try my best to avoid spoilers, but proceed with a smidgen of caution. And in case you’re wondering, I’m playing this on PC with an RTX 3060Ti graphics card.)

Playing Super Mario 3D All-Stars Serves as a Reminder for How Frustrating Super Mario Sunshine Can Be

I’m standing on a tightrope. Somewhere above me is a red coin. Despite repeated attempts at snagging it from the sky, I can’t quite seem to snag it. An angry cloud is whooshing back-and-forth, trying its best to snipe me out of the sky.

Again, I leap. Hurtling towards the coin, the angry cloud finally tags me. Reeling from the pain, my Mario falls like a rock to the lake below. In time with the splash, my controller gets spiked into the ground…again.
