  1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan – A Review by Jose Vega Purchased digital copy via PSN for the sake of review... and sadly regrets it. This game is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Since the 1980s, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been a phenomenon that has changed the world and our way of life. Whether it is the comics or the cartoons, it is a franchise that many of us grew up on. With video games however, it’s sort of mixed. You have good games such as TMNT 4: Turtles in Time and TMNT Battle Nexus and bad games like Out of the Shadows. Now the reins of the heroes in a half shell are in the hands of Activision and Platinum Games. The question is will they be able to pull it off and deliver a game worth playing or are the four destined to end up in video game obscurity? Let’s start with the story. The story involves Shredder and General Krang hatching a plot to invade Earth and take over. We never learn how they do it other than a cutscene in the beginning stating that everything’s ready. It’s up to the Turtles to stop the Shredder and Krang from succeeding. The story isn’t much to work with but it’s pretty barebones. You get various cutscenes of the Turtles dealing with many of the bad guys and eventually it all connects to their true plans. It’s straightforward but I wish it could be done better. Mutants in Manhattan don’t pack much in terms of its content. All you have is a single player and online co-op. Regardless you trek through nine levels battling enemies and eventually a boss fight with a TMNT villain. Within each level, you have to complete objectives in order to fill up a blue gauge. You are graded by how quick you’re able to complete them. They can range from beating up enemies, carrying bombs to a portal, disarming bombs, destroying trucks, etc. Complete them fast and you’ll be rewarded with an S rank. You also get bonuses depending on which characters accomplished what and they can range too. It helps if you get lots of bonuses to boost your score so you can use the points to get supplies. Buying supplies such as pizzas, drinks, weapons cost points so you need to manage what’s best for you. At the end of every level, you take on a different boss. In some cases if you’re skilled in dealing damage, another boss will join in to make the fight difficult. That’s a secret boss and there is one per level. Some bosses can be challenging, requiring your skill to be at your best. There are also multiple difficulty settings that can either make things easier or harder. Beating it in Hard will unlock Very Hard mode and that can be even tougher. As for the turtles, well they are very straightforward. Each of them is similar in terms of attacks and movement but what set them apart are their abilities. You have the option to customize their loadouts. Each character has access to four special moves as well as up to 3 charms. You start with one but once you beat the game in the harder settings, they’ll be unlocked. As you progress through the game, you’ll unlock special attacks that you can purchase with trainer points and afterwards you can level them up with trainer points to make them stronger. The higher the level, the stronger the attack and the less of a cooldown you’ll have to endure. Sometimes if two characters do a similar special move, they can do a co-op attack that can deal a lot of damage. Use it a lot if you want to make things better. Charms can also be enhanced to increase their effects or if you don’t like them, you can destroy them to obtain materials. Materials are needed to improve the effects so you are required to beat down enemies and bosses in order to acquire them. If you’re playing offline, the AI is acceptable with four different orders you can give the other turtles. They follow it to a T and its done very well. I will say that design wise, many of the TMNT characters bear resemblance to the IDW comics and they did it very well. They were able to capture the feel of the comics brought to life in this game. Very good. The voice acting is strong and at times humorous thanks to Michaelangelo. The other VAs all did great and it was a high point I find to be satisfying. Very satisfying. Although I see good things about this game, there are some things I didn’t like. For example, the game isn’t that long. You can beat it in roughly 3 ½ hours. I’m legit. The whole game can be beat in under 4 hours on Normal, with another few in the harder settings. It was a bit of a bummer because most other games tend to be longer and provide a lot more. Since it does have replayability in the form of higher difficulties, the leveling up system, who am I to complain? Another fault I find is that it’s repetitive. You basically button mash to beat down bad guys in order to fill up a gauge until its full and then you head for the boss fight. It’s just stale and boring, having to do the same thing over and over, in nine stages. That makes it unsatisfying especially if you have to get all the trophies. The game also doesn’t run at 60fps. It runs on 30. Why? I have little clue. Oh and there’s no offline co-op. That to me is disappointing because every other TMNT game I played has an offline co-op. Co-op is there but it’s online only of up to 4 players. I didn’t try it but I’m not really sure how it works. It is good that there’s online co-op but the fact that there’s no offline co-op really hurts the game. It does. Overall, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is an all right game. I will say that it’s fun they brought many villains from the show to beat up, good replayability, an interesting leveling system for attacks and online co-op. But its lack of offline co-op, repetitive gameplay and lack of variety kind of hurt the game. Made worse is that it’s short with nine stages, despite the fact that replay value is there for those who want it. Unfortunately I paid $50 for this game hoping that it would be a game that would be satisfying. It didn’t. No disrespect to Platinum Games because I love what they do but I think they kind of flopped it. If it was to tie in to the upcoming TMNT film, Out of the Shadows… well they didn’t do a good job. Better luck next time. Activision… can I get my money back please? I would rather put it towards something better like Overwatch. I give TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan a 6 out of 10.

Platinum reveals TMNT trailer, Skype hides IP addresses to prevent online harassment in gaming communities, Gillian Anderson talks Star Citizen, Battlefront has future paid and free content revealed, Mortal Kombat X content not coming to the PC, Fire Emblem gets less creepy in the West and has its own 3DS and overpriced DLC, Mighty No 9 delayed again, Spike Chunsoft plans to release more games on Steam, more lawsuits against Oculus Rift creator, XCOM 2 developer Firaxis already working with modding community and new unit reveals, how depth-sensing technology is changing video games, why an Ubisoft developer quit his dream job, the first essential game of 2016, and more. Star Wars Battlefront - The Road Ahead Future free updates and DLCs have been detailed in a recent blog from the producer. Bayonetta Dev's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game Officially Revealed with First Trailer A thread about this was started here Skype Now Hides IP Addresses by Default An updated that is intended to help prevent online harassment, specifically in gaming communities. Good timing, just as the AJSA stops using Skype to move to Discord. Fire Emblem Fates is getting its own New Nintendo 3DS XL hardware This story also reveals that the game is getting the same overpriced map DLC as Awakening and this story reveals that the US version is getting less creepy. The Division: 10,000 Bugs Fixed for Upcoming Closed Beta This is good news as the game looked like it had some problems when Joe was playing it. More story details were also talked about here. The system requirements for running the game were also revealed here. You can also get some free gear by doing what this article says. Mobile Games Website Uses Patreon, Things Get Messy The developer says the funding wasn't pulled based on the low score of 3.5/5 (a truly terrible score), but considering they seem to be considering conspiracy theories of the site doing it to prove that they aren't biased it sounds like the developer just stopped funding in a moment of anger. Danganronpa And Danganronpa 2 PC Ports Only The Beginning For Spike Chunsoft Chunsoft annouced that Danganronpa 2 was also coming to Steam and that more of their games would likely follow. This could mean the other entry and future entries in the series but it could also mean games like 999 and Zero Escape Virutes Last Reward, all excellent games (well except for the third person shooter Danganronpa but the other five would be great to see on Steam). Andy Serkis' Mocap Studio is Going to Help Publish Games Far Cry Primal PS4 Bundle Coming to Europe Mortal Kombat X on PC won't receive new content, support looks to be discontinued No Kombat Pack 2, no GOTY edition, and probably not going to get the updated netcode. I found that the Joe interview gif says it best. Lawsuit Against Oculus Rift Creator Can Go Forward, Judge Rules Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann on why Uncharted has to end Payday dev Starbreeze lands $40M investment from major Korean game corp Starbreeze brings VR to the arcade this spring Endless Legend: Shifters Expansion Announced Due out in April this expansion will include a new major faction. Torment Heads to Beta and gets a preview from IGN The beta has started for Kickstarter backers on the 21st and an early access version has released on Steam. I gave them about $100 for their Kickstarter and am very happy with how this looks so far. Children of Zodiarcs - A new Tactical JRPG by AAA veterans In other Kickstarter game related news, a new turn based combat game that uses cards and dice has recently been funded with 23 days remaining. A thread about this was created here Mega Late, Man: Mighty No. 9 Delayed Again The reason for the delay is said to be "bugs inside the network modes". I think that was the cause for an earlier delay, and once again this has people saying they don't care about their online features. Based on what I have seen of the gameplay, I think Jesse Cox is right Tales Of Symphonia Arriving On PC Next Week How This War of Mine Goes Even Darker With The Little Ones Senior writer Pawel Miechowski talks about the expansion to This War of Mine. XCOM 2 to have mods at launch thanks to Firaxis/Long War team-up and The Sectopod and the Gatekeeper join the XCOM 2 cast Firaxis has teamed up with the team that made The Long War mod for the original game, in order to have mods released on day one. Good to see them working with the modding community already. A thread about this was created here I had already posted a link to a, I believe, French story a few weeks ago that revealed the Sectopod but the Gatekeeper has been revealed as well. Suikoden II Did Pretty Damn Well Last Year Suikoden 2 didn't just take one of the top 10 slots for Playstation Classics in December of 2015, but for all of 2015. It should be #1 as far as I am concerned. Longtime BioWare Writer David Gaider Leaves Company EA's Adorable Indie Game Unravel Isn't Changing Names EA was unable to get a trademark for Unravel covering video game software, due to another company already having it for a board game but the name of the game will not be changing, despite some good ideas for other names. 'Five Nights at Freddy's World' removed from Steam Everyone who bought the game will be getting a refund, and it will be free to play once the developer finishes polishing it. A thread about this was posted here Women Outnumber Men in This Top Collegiate Game Design Program Peek behind the scenes with Gillian Anderson in Star Citizen Anderson talks about playing Capt. Rachel McLaren and what it is like working on the set with prop guns and motion capture. Gears of War Creator Optimistic for Gears of War 4 If there is one thing I expect from Gears of War, it is to be pleased by the writing. Undertale’s Patch Is Full of Secrets Undertale's recent patch adds new secrets and questions Valkyria Chronicles Remastered coming west this spring Her Story 2 in the Works, Creator Confirms it's a Spiritual Successor A thread about this was created here Sony merging PlayStation groups into one unit, US-based Sony Interactive Entertainment Umbrella Corps arrives on PC, PS4 in May First footage of Sunless Sea Zubmariner DLC surfaces Homefront: The Revolution "Resistance Mode" trailer released That's it for the news, in other articles I have found interesting How Depth-Sensing Technology Is Changing Videogames Why I Quit my Dream Job at Ubisoft Jeff On: Emulators, Speedruns, and That Video Where the Guy Only Presses A 0.5 Times Jeff Gerstmann talks about how emulation and private servers help game preservation, speedrunners, and Twitch streams. ‘Pony Island’ Is a Daring, Demonic, and Demented Gaming Masterpiece ‘The Witness’ Is 2016’s First Absolutely Essential Video Game "Somehow, in a game with no characters and no scripted narrative, I have been moved." It’s Old and It’s Clunky, But You Really Must Play ‘Dragon’s Dogma’
  3. http://ap.ign.com/m/en/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-2014/74636/news/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-dethrones-guardians-o http://m.deadline.com/2014/08/international-box-office-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-into-the-storm-inbetweeners-guardians-galaxy/ Thankfully Guardians of the Galaxy made $300 million worldwide while TMNT only makes $94, although TMNT opens a week after Guardians and I am expecting it to make more than Guardians. Hopefully not. I am baffled that people actually want to watch TMNT and beats Guardians, a much superior movie, at the box office. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE??? Does Michael Bay has a mind control charm that I don't know about??
  4. Review for this movie is up. Things that are most definitely in this movie: CGI action scenes with explosions (of course) with some cool moments Megan Fox Lazily done story Stupid comedic side character Pizzas The turtles that either look menacing or looks like fucking shit Ending that looks exactly like the Amazing Spiderman movie ending. Based on the review, it's pretty much like Transformers 4. If you enjoy that movie, you're going to like this one. And it's going to set nostalgia for kids that never sees the previous movies in the past, while pissing off people that has seen the past movies.

  6. With remakes, reboot on movies or games that shift or separate themselves from the main source, how far can these separate from the main source before becoming something completely different?
