The most exciting development to come out of Comic-Con this year? Creator Bryan Lee O’Malley dropping news that Ubisoft Montreal is currently developing a PS3/Xbox 360 downloadable game based on his comic series Scott Pilgrim (above), to be released alongside Edgar Wright’s film adaptation — news of a magnitude that almost nearly canceled out the disappointment of EA’s contest calling for systematic and institutionalized harassment of SDCC booth babes for prizes.
Elsewhere on Offworld, we rounded up more of the best films Netflix’s Xbox 360 streaming service has to offer, with Zach Galifanakis’ dystopian cult comedy Visioneers and more multilayered time-warping and epic human-drama documentary films than you could ever want, and a bonus comedic British invasion.
We also figured out how to get a taste of the PS3 Katamari Damacy remake on display at Comic-Con from the comfort of our living rooms, saw new footage of the giant crab battles and near-avoidance baby violence of ‘conjure anything’ DS game Scribblenauts and of Gearbox’s Mad-Max-ian post-apocalyptic co-op open world shooter Borderlands (which promises ’87 bazillion’ procedurally generated weapons).
Finally, we saw chiptune punk stars Anamanaguchi plan their U.S. domination summer tour, got the first look at UK indie Mode7’s abstract tactical strategy game Frozen Synapse, and our ‘one shot’s for the day: No More Heroes in 3D 2D pixels, and Noby Noby Boy‘s essence in just nine words.
