Preview of Press Start: The Movie

Oh dear lord, another one of these? Oh, wait, this is semi-original ... and funny! 
Press Start tells the story of a suburban youth in a videogame world who discovers his adventurous, if berserk, destiny when he's recruited by an ill-tempered ninja and a tough-as-nails space soldier to save the world from a tyrannical, but comically insecure, sorcerer.

With special appearances by game actors Daniel and Carlos Pesina (Mortal Kombat) and music by videogame composer Jake Kaufman (Contra 4), there's never been anything like Press Start!

Overall, Press Start looks really interesting. Sure, it looks extremely cheesy, but go listen to their production journal and you'll see that there was no giant team making this movie. Just a few guys and gals doing it for the love of gaming. Also, check out some of the Dial V for Vile videos as well as the Bonus Levels flash series for some background on the story line. 

The DVD is set to hit September 25, the same day the most anticipated event of all time is going to happen ...  

Once you take a look at everything, what are your impressions of it all?
