What's the story about? Who's the bosses? I gather that it's its own thing, but does it appear to exist or derive more from one universe or another?

Bosses are Cerberus Mouser (the first real boss and probably the hardest boss), Karai (two fights) and Shredder (two fights).
There are various boss-type characters or mini-bosses too, like the Mancers (man mousers) and various higher ranked ninja or ronin. The Krang enemies are a pain in the ass with their guns too...

It's clear the game is supposed to take place within the Nick universe (although good luck finding the continuity) but I think it's supposed to be it's own thing. Splinter looks almost exactly like the 2013 version but April and the Turtles are clearly older. The Krang are the same from 2013 and Donnie has a crush on April here also.

Story was originally revolved around rescuing a kidnapped April from Karai and Shredder. Through the course of tracking April through some of Donnie's tech, they discovered a bigger plot at work involving the Krangs and Shredder working with them. April is rescued and the Turtles continue on and make their way to the Krangs base and deal out punishment to a Shredder who's been powered up with Krang's tech.

Honestly I didn't pay too much attention to the cut scenes. I would use those moments to get up and so something since I couldn't skip them.

Yeah, the Nick connection is loose at best. It acts like it's set very early on, but the tone is darker and everyone is much older, and everything is more serious (Mikey's rants aside).

I personally disregard the Nick association. It's not very prevalent. I think you'd have fun with the game, Andrew, as long as you don't encounter the glitches that others seem to get. It's flawed, but fun.

As far as I'm aware, Red Fly would've happily done their own thing but they had to compromise with the Nickelodeon licensing.

So, yeah, it takes place within the Nickelodeon universe in many ways, but tries to aim for a slightly less kiddy yet still simple approach. So, while there's no Dogpound or Fishface, there's also no Bebop & Rocksteady or Casey Jones.

outside of the designs for the characters, which are really just realistic versions of the show, theres very little to do with the show.

The Turtles looking like dinosaurs and having nostrils alone should tell you its a unique universe.

Considering turtles have been around since the age of the dinosaurs....

I keep meaning to ask you, bro: Any idea just how long Chun-Li was hanging out in those trees waiting to unleash the fury on that drunk girl in your sig? I can't get enough of that, man.

HAHA I lost my **** watching a series of these that a friend posted on my wall sometime ago. It's hypnotic, isn't it?

Incredibly. I'm in love with it. Especially because I keep pretending it's Britney Spears tumbling down the hill. She's all, "A'right y'all, I'm gonna do some 'I'm Not A Girl/Not Yet A Woman,' a'capella style!" and Chun-Li's all, "Oh no you are NOT!" Then BOOM. Wonderful.

I have one of Lady Gaga getting Chun-Li'd

Holy sh*t, just tell me where to go and who I have to stab.

And none of that "You actually don't have to stab anybody" bullsh*t. You kids nowadays don't know how to party.

:lol: I wasn't the only one who thought "Born This Way" shamelessly plagiarized "Express Yourself", apparently. :lol:

I always thought it meant her male genitalia...

09-10-2013, 02:46 AM
:lol: OUCH, man. I don't care much for her, myself, but ooooof. :lol:

We're reaching WTF territory....wait we're long past.:P

I pointed that out to him in an earlier post somewhere (probably in the sticky).
Even provided a photo of a real Turtle.
