    I still have my legit 360 download installed... bit gutted that I only got some of the dlc before it was delisted, but I made up for it by getting it on my hacked PS3.
    Even so, I would definitely re-buy a new re-issue of this - especially if it gets a physical release.

    Honestly, SPvTW has been the best thing he's done since SotD (although I'd count the Grindhouse "Don't" trailer if I could consider it valid)... but he's never done anything better than Spaced imo.

    I still have this game on my 360 from back when I bought it in 2011/12, it's okay I guess. The licensing hell this game is going through and the fact that you can't buy it anywhere anymore is more interesting than the entire game itself.

    This would be a great re-release. This was one of the first downloadable PS3 Games I had, others being the TMNT Turtles in Time Remake and Street Fighter II HD Remix. They came out with online multiplayer DLC in this I believe a year before it got pulled. Feels a lot like River City Ransom with a fresh coat of paint and an amazing soundtrack.

    I would like to think this would be something Limited Run Games snatches up for physical release

    You could be right... but as it's a Ubisoft property it would likely be one of those 'partnership' deals where it turns out to not be particularly 'limited' and then gets better/cheaper releases from EastAsiaSoft/Strictly Limited/PixelHeart/etc.

    this is why games should have physical releases, if they had people could play this instead of waiting years or hacking their setups so they can play this game, if theey have released physical copys one could just buy it used nowadays if he wanted atleast instead of resorting to stright up piracy.

    Would not mind seeing a rerelease.

    I was all excited for some beat em ups happening in the downloadable game space -- we had seen any other number of "not really seen on a TV screen since the 16 bit era" type games come back with such things just before and after (castlevania, bomberman, many shmups, tetris, several run and gun, bionic commando, plenty of 2d platformers...). However while several of those were anything to from genre defining to merely excellent as far as the scrolling beat em up thing they all seemed to be pretty mediocre, and while this is not going to beat out Streets of Rage, indeed I would almost suggest 2 crude dudes over this, it was a solid effort. It becoming unavailable stung somewhat.

    I would say this is why we should have resale of downloadable games by default.

    that is never gonna be a thing, companys will never let you resell downloadable games, specialy on consoles, they all want a cut.

    I liked the game, but it crashed a lot, which made me lose interest overall.

    I don't doubt they will be dragged kicking and screaming all the way, and make it as tedious as possible, but there have been cases saying actually resale of things is a fundamental right and you are not to deny it.

    The US will probably be the next big fight (not sure what Australia and Japan will do, Canada might also do something), however all I have seen so far (there was some company doing it for downloaded music I think it was) was reluctant to rule on it and kicked to other parties/legislators.

    Nah, River City Girls is amazing and has lots of combos and stuff. Scott Pilgrim is just really bland and has enemies with too much hitpoints and no variation.
