Nerd Night 12-22-14 Featured Game: Scott Pilgrim vs The World

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World the Game
A Nerd Night featured game review
Brian Larson

I’ve played a lot of Smash myself, but only recently this year was I turned onto the competitive scene. My eyes have been opened. For years I’ve been a Casual Scrublord, not privy to the true depth every single game in the series offers.
