Scott Pilgrim Brings The Retro Gaming Easter Eggs

As some of you may be aware, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is set to come out in theaters tomorrow. For those of you who have not seen the preview, I urge you to google it right the hell now. If you like video games, you will, at the very least, be amused by the trailer.

The movie is based on a graphic novel, which contains tons of references to old school games, some so old that I had forgotten about them completely until now. Our good friends at GamesRadar put together a nifty little list of them and I thought it might be fun to share it with you guys.

Personally, the River City Ransom “BARF” and the coins dropping are my favorites. I’ve always had a soft spot for that game, ever since I first read about it in Nintendo Power back in the 80s. What references did you think were cool? Are you planning on seeing the movie?

BARF! I mean, GO!

Top Old School NES Quotes

Sometimes I forget just how much I played my NES, and just how many games I managed not only to play, but to beat when I was just a wee lad. Summers and after school were times of massive NES playing time, and it seems that I got around to those games like a woman of loose morals.

This is all confirmed after reading SydLexia’s “50 NES Quotes Every Gamer Should Know”, which goes through a huge catalog of games (well, 50 to be precise) and dishes out some truly great gems. Everything from bad translations, goofy writing and more can be found from these old school NES games. To be honest, I’m really surprised by how many of these I played and owned. I totally remember the one from Rambo, the video game, for instance.

Totally worth a read if you were an NES dude like myself. What about you guys? Did you remember any of these?
