    In game it looks quite cool, and yeah I dont really see what the big deal is, you're asking me if a mutant turtle looks weird

    There's a difference between "weird-cool" and "weird-steaming-pile-of-dogshit".

    But if you like it and the game is fun, good for you.

    I like the art style.

    I probably won't pick up the game but I remember people fucking hayed the 2007 turtle designs too

    I'm getting a real heavy 'not my turtles' vibe here

    Duh.

    But I actually think it's dumb bullshit though. Is my opinion less valid simply because it's negative?

    Let's keep in mind I called it dumb bullshit before he came in and went "I liked it." Him liking it has nothing to do with whether or not I think it's dumb bullshit.

    The worst part is these designs are supposedly based on the current show. Notice the crack on Raphs shell.

    That vibe more applies to hating on the new CG cartoon's designs

    I've been a fan of the turtles since the 87 cartoon, and while I haven't really liked every iteration I've seen, I can say that my complaints about the game designs is less "It's not what I like" and more "It just looks really really horrid"

    Also, the 2007's movie's biggest flaw was horrible marketing, because the trailers made it look really corny and dumb and it was a lot more mature than they were passing it off as. It's actually pretty enjoyable, and basically grew up the turtles in the same way this game seems to want to do. Except it didn't make them look completely hideous in the process.

    The "deep cover" and "larp" turtles sound like a return to the really great/dumb gimmick action figures.

    Maaaaaybe.

    This seems like classic D&D stuff, which doesn't seem like anyone's particular thing.

    If it was Star Trek Larping, I'd definitely assume it was Leo's idea.

    I still have that Donetello somewhere. But he lost his right hand. I glued a big orange knife in its place so it was ok. 9 year old me assumed a knife hand was the best thing for an undercover mutant detective

    The quote on the box makes no sense.

    The worst part is these designs are supposedly based on the current show. Notice the crack on Raphs shell.

    When has Raph not had a damaged shell?

    Really?

    I guess I can imagine the 1987 cartoon didn't have it, but I feel like every version outside of that has had some sort of focus on Raph's shell being rather beaten up compared to the others.

    How is this show doing? I remember liking the pilot quite a bit.

    I just finished the first season.

    It's still really good. Other than some very lackluster "henchman" villains (Bebop and Rocksteady are far more memorable than dog thing and fish thing), the Splinter/Shredder rivalry is handled really well, the Karai/Leo stuff is good, and the April change has been really cool.

    In fairness, Bebop and Rocksteady had a LOT more time and exposure to endear themselves than the new guys have had.

    Also, I really enjoy how much more of a father figure Splinter is this time around. And also yeah, his rivalry with Shredder is just great.

    I just love Splinter in this, period. He's my favorite version to date, and hilarious, too.



    I think my favorites are "fairness," "a seven foot staff," "mercy," and "compassion," among others not shown, like making Mike leader or about ninjas hurting someone.

    In fact, I like him more than any one Turtle this time out-- a first.

    Cockroach Terminator is one of the better Raph episodes, just because Raph is completely hilarious when he's scared shitless.

    ALL RIGHT ITS DOWN, EVERYONE GET IN THE CAR!

    OH GOD ITS CHASING US, DRIVE FASTER!

    I hate everything post the molting scene.

    Like they make a new mutant of the week and its always 50/50 on if the design will suck ass or not.( ignoring legacy characters like Leatherhead or rat king)

    And somehow they manage to make Cockroach Terminator both

    I didn't care for it, because it really did not paint the Turtles in a good light at all.

    Well, it didn't take Playmates long to revert to form this time, did it? Do they still have the Star Trek license? Kirk Leo seems more apt than ever now.

    That came a bit later on, though. And they kept it... until Fast Forward. =P

    Regarding Out of the Shadows:

    Like: Banter between Turtles.

    Dislike: Shellevision (too dang up-close to them at times).

    There is no way that is Casey's voice, that is generic excitable male child for cartoons targeted at boys that has been kept in cryostasis except when Nick or Disney needs to bust him out to record a commercial.
