50°
213w ago - Ubisoft Sr. Brand Manager Michael Micholic has announced today that the soundtrack to Scott Pilgrim vs The World is going old school on PSN.

To quote: Once we decided to go for the old school, side scrolling, beat 'em up style with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Video Game, we wanted to go all in! We brought in pixel artist extraordinaire Paul Robertson.

I was hanging out backstage with one of my good friends Damon who also happens to be one of the most talented chip artists I know (he goes by Starscream with his drummer George).

We were kinda bored and decided to start a collaboration italo-disco song on Game Boy. He started with an awesome bass line and...

To quote: Many words and terms are frequently thrown around in relation to classic gaming: retro, old school, and so forth.

Often, games will be referred to as throwbacks, praised for their ability to induce nostalgia and capture the magic of the golden era of gaming. But really, what does "retro," or any of those terms for that matter, really mean in reference to a game?

We ask the question because it's at the heart of our latest game (we're [Register or Login to view links], by the way, publishers of SMT: Nocturne, SMT: Persona 4, and the sleeper hit of 2009, Demon's Souls).





3D Dot Game Heroes for PlayStation 3 is the ultimate love-letter to retro gamers, the definitive homage to the action-adventure legends we all grew up with.
