    So is jingoism, which is also a big part of the original character. Anyway, getting away from gender focus is exactly the reason making the character bi makes the most sense for the movie series in the long run. Making him gay is no less gender focused than keeping him straight.

    next to of course god america i
    love you land of the pilgrims' and so forth oh
    say can you see by the dawn's early my
    country 'tis of centuries come and go
    and are no more what of it we should worry
    in every language even deafanddumb
    thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
    by jingo by gee by gosh by gum
    why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-
    iful than these heroic happy dead
    who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter
    they did not stop to think they died instead
    then shall the voice of liberty be mute?
    He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water

It was updated just enough to make kids like it while also keeping it interesting for parents my age who have to sit through these shows.
    I caught a few episodes here and there and liked what I saw. I liked the series approach to the characters and felt like the changes to characters like April worked in this series. I didn't even know the series was done. One of the best episodes was the one where the end of the episode had animation like the original cartoon. That was a nice touch and highlight for me (although kids not familiar with the original series probably might not know what to make of it?).

    Necromancer was one hell of a computer game. Played that thing for days on my C-64.

    It is heartening to see this interpretation of the TMNT in a video game released in 2017.

    I never played or owned it (I got the Saturn and PC versions instead), but I remember reading in a gaming magazine that the PSX version of Duke Nukem 3D was supposed to have some extra levels that were spoofs of other PSX hits. I recall "Resident Weevil" and "Womb Trader" being mentioned, which is almost the same name as what HMG suggested. Can anybody who does have that game, or played it, recall if that was the case, or did that cool idea get cut from the final retail release?

    @DevilReemed: I only have the NES port of Archon but that is indeed one badass game of action "chess". My younger brother was way better at it than me though and always cleaned my clock when we squared off on that checkered game board.

    Totally agree with this. It was a pleasant surprise to see how much they resemble (and move) like the original live-action film. I’m definitely looking forward to this.

    The first 2 Archon games were fantastic. By the time the third one came out, the limits of the game's premise were exposed. They tried to introduce new mechanics but after 2, there just wasn't anywhere else to go.

    Man, it is so hard to believe that the company that once released games like Archon, M.U.L.E., Seven Cities of Gold, The Standing Stones and The Bard's Tale has turned into such a soulless corporation. Electronic Arts was the company back in the 80s and early 90s.

    Yeah absolutely. Times have made these companies unrecognisable.
    Videogames where as much about peripheral elements (booklets, artwork, story, inspired programmers) as they where about the gaming experience itself. Everything becoming digitalised means that the world's created are dull and trivial. That for me is a big part of why non of it works these days. It's all way too self conscious (the Indies cashing in on oldschool gameplay and aesthetics) or way too thought out. Contrived to say the least.

    ITT: old nerds angry that something they liked when they were children doesn't look exactly as it did when they were children

    If anything I am honestly amazed at the staying power of the Turtles.

    Doesn't have to look the same. The previous three animated series have very different designs from each other and most like all three. This new shit is just horribly designed.
