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

Based off the movie, based of the Canadian comic, the game is an old style beat-em-up that supports up to 4 players. It is very reminiscent of the old ninja turtles or X men arcade machines, but with more complex violence. I downloaded it off PSN because I loved the movie, but I finished it for love of the game. It was loaded with super Nintendo era references, the general style (based of the comic) was very engrossing, and all the nostalgia that comes with beating up dozens of baddies with help from weapons dropped by enemies, the environment, and help from my friends took me back to my childhood gaming roots.

Punch Foods: Buddha’s Hand Chutney

You might not guess it, but a big part of Anime Punch staff culture is cooking.  Almost all of our internal parties are built around a feast, and in our day to day lives exploring new foods, flavors, restaurants, drinks, and so forth is a major hobby.  Maybe it’s because we live in the heart of a foodie town, or maybe it’s just because food is awesome, but food is at our core.  So, we’re going to start something new and put some of our exploits online to see if people like it!

Ideally, all the recipes will be something you can throw together with exotic ingredients that we found locally.  So up first, is a chutney using mango, persimmon, and Buddha’s hand.
