CV: Do you have a favorite TMNT video game?

TW: Well, I just finished writing a script for one that’s yet to be announced, so I’m a bit partial to that one. For now, however, I’m sworn to secrecy, so to quote Forrest Gump, that’s all I have to say about that.

Interesting. Is this an IDW Turtles game (doubtful)? 30th anniversary celebratory game, a 2012 game sequel, the movie game, or what, I wonder?

Since Activision still has the license and their track record so far has been two terrible games, (the Nick game on Wii/3DS and the horrid "Out of the Shadows" with dinosaur nostrils), I'm not expecting much.

Besides I figured the third game would be based on the movie, but maybe it isn't?

I certainly hope so.

I know you don't like the oots designs cubed and I agree to disagree with you on that but you gotta admit there were lot of great ideas in the game that have potential. Different fighting styles based on personality and weapon, some focus on teamwork , upgradeable skill trees, stat buffs the turtles can share with each other, and a little fan service on top of it all. I see it as a step in the right direction and I wouldn't mind at all if this new game whatever it is took some inspiration from it.

i agree. red fly had some really great ideas and did a great job for the price and for a smaller scale game. in fact i'm still playing through trying to completely level up my turtles as well as collect all the trophies. so i've really enjoyed it but i can only imagine if they would've polished things up a bit longer it would've been perfect.

The possible main reason why OotS is unpolished/unfinished, because their publisher (Activision) forced them to finish it for a ridicolous deadline.

Besides it's still better then most of the trash Ubisoft made for TMNT games.

Activision shoulders at least some of the blame, as does Microsoft for making it a Summer of Arcade release, they pushed it out way before it was ready. However, that polished PSN port...it's not polished. So the developer isn't blame free, even if they had some good ideas, which i'll admit they did, and I had some snippets of genuine fun when I played it with two other friends, but the game is still a mess and none of the parties involved with it are blame free.

The more I think about it I wonder if oots was a test to see if there was high public interest for an older skewing turtle game. It doesn't excuse its problems by any means but it would explain the decision to make it an arcade title and the rushed development time. I just really hope they treat this new game right. Its way past time the turtles get a triple a title.

Again, Activision doesn't develop, they publish. Developers are the ones who make the games, whether they're good or not. The only one of their franchises that has a real strict deadline is Call of Duty, and those are on three year cycles now. So again, if the developers can't make a good game in three years, that's on them. Don't roll your eyes when you know nothing about anything.

LOL Dude, I know nothing about anything? That's cute.

Activision are known for making stupid deadlines, most of their games have less then a year of development time, especially those games based on movies and tv shows. Even the developers of COD have to cut corners by cutting and pasting stuff from older games to meet their deadlines. No matter how good you are, if you don't have time and money to do it right the final product will always fall short.

Activion are as much to blame as Red Fly, if not more, and if you can't see it, then I'm sorry to say but you know nothing about anything.

I played the 360 version and it was pretty rough. It's a really stiff beat-em-up and the gameplay is clunky. I didn't care for it but give it a try. It's cheap as dirt now so I may pick it up for Wii just to mess around.

Unless it's (for some odd reason) an RPG, then story will be such a huge part that my expectations will be super high!

Seriously, though, just gimmie a sprite-based arcade side-scrolling beat-em-up and call it a day. Take some hints from the '07 game on GBA and the original arcade games and run with that.

I really hope we get an RPG of some sort. RPG-hybrid games are all the rage these days, good examples being Borderlands 1 & 2 and Destiny really pushing rpg elements into the mainstream of western gaming. Then there are games like Fallout 3 & New Vegas, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls... all extremely popular series.

I think a TMNT rpg could be a huge! the trick is... it has to be a game that capitalizes on what people love in a TMNT game--responsive, action combat with strong multiplayer-friendly options.

Like i've said before... i think we need a TMNT game that is a hybrid of the beat-emup and RPG genres. One example would the PS2 game by Square-Enix titled The Bouncer, which had some good ideas but ultimately failed to execute them very well. It was a very early PS2 game and it shows. But I still think the concept of a beat-em-up RPG is interesting and would fit TMNT really well.

RPG elements just make things fun, period :P You want to feel like your character is progressing throughout the game and an RPG does that very well. The turtles could not only gain health, but weapon upgrades & augments, new skill trees, etc.

Just watched it. From the sound of it they didn't even know who he was so he got the part based on performance alone. It'll be interesting to hear him doing the voice so many years later.

Interesting. I remember him sounding pitch perfect as Leo when he did the voice for those interviews on the season 5 bonus material a few years back, yet he sounded weird as f*ck to me for his cameo at the end of Wormquake.

I do wonder what the game will be, if not based on the movie or show. If Waltz wrote it, I have to guess it's comic-related. Some kind of tie-in that he would need to have a say in. Which would be awesome.

That's pretty awesome! And it makes me think of somewhat-recent Spider-Man games, where they usually cast from people who'd previously played the character in one of his cartoon series, even though the game doesn't follow them directly. (Or several of them playing different versions, which would also be damned cool.)

I'd like to have the 80s toon cast voice in a video game. 2003 got several games to voice including Smash-Up and Turtles in Time Re-Shelled and the 2007 movie game used the turtle voices from the movie but the 80s cartoon has never had a game where the 80s cartoon cast voiced the characters. Rob Paulsen didn't get to voice a Turtle in a game until the Nick TMNT game.

Honestly though I have faith that they are putting a lot into this, at least as far as art direction and story go. I am hoping for the best Turtles game of all time.

The only way it'd be a LEGO game is if TT Games is developing it. If Activision really is publishing, I doubt it'll be a LEGO game as TT also publishes the LEGO games. But a TMNT LEGO game is possible. I mean, 2 waves of the Nick cartoon and 1 of the '14 movie is quite a fair bit of LEGO sets for one property. LEGO games have been made for stuff with less LEGO toys backing them.

I don't get the whole "corporate allegiance/hatred" thing and never will. Yeah, some companies have a more consistent track record than others, but they're all just companies releasing a product and getting paid for it. Nobody sets out to release bad product on purpose. "Company X's games are always great but Company Y only makes garbage" is silly.

I don't think I ever bought a game primarily based on who made it. I mostly just grab whatever looks cool to me. Some companies I trust a little more than others, but it's not a main motivator. Other than super-obvious stuff like Mario = Nintendo, Sonic = Sega, etc., I can't even recall what companies worked on what games that I liked. I barely pay attention to that, for some reason.

EA, in my eyes, has earned the negative reputation it gets.

As to what EA does right, they more or less have the only game in town when it comes to sports games. Such as the exclusive license for the NFL. Over the years EA has become a corporate giant capable of buying out it's competitors and smaller game developers. So, it's damn good at business, even if it skipped business ethics.

Sting of mediocre games? Haven't there only been 2 released on their watch so far? One being squarely aimed at young kids and the other having (what I consider anyway) a good amount of content considering its price.

I think I might've worded it wrong. What I meant about conering the marKet is making themselves the only ones able to produce that type of game like ea did with football and maybe others sports game. I don't really know since I stopped paying attention to every other sports game except fight night. But yeah innovation comes from competition and pushing to do something better than the other guy. if you manage to make yourself the only game in town things can get stagnant but people have to put up with it because you're the only one produucing this thing they want. With military shooters I believe there are still other devolpers and publishers making those so its not like call of duty is the only option

The problem with Activision is that they are greedy and admit it, like what Kotick said about games prices and the way they force their teams to release games in ridiculous time frames and how they made them cut corners ( they cut and paste stuff from COD 4 and put it in every COD game after that). Just look at what they did to the poor guys at Infinity Ward, after all the Money they brought in with their COD games they fired and sued them for stupid reasons.

Yeah, most game companies get hate for stupid things but Activision is the cancer of the industry, they are the ones that are on this for only one thing, for the Money, they couldn't care less for putting out quality products or for doing games for the gamers so they deserv al the hate they get.

Once you step out of the garage and charge money for what you're making, you're a prostitute. That being the case, why WOULDN'T someone try and milk it for all it's worth? Sounds pretty damn smart to me. Kotick didn't become CEO of a billion-dollar corporation to save endangered species or anything, he did it because that's what paid the most money in his field of interest.

People pay money to play games, and they pay more for the games they enjoy, and in turn, it only makes sense to exploit that relationship. I, personally, don't care about the Call Of Duty games and their ilk. But people love them, and play every single one that comes out, so how can the company making them ever be at fault for giving people what they so obviously want? Just because they're open about making a fortune off of it? Would it be better to lie? "Hey, man, we just do this to make kids smile, it's not about money at all!" THAT would offend me.

On the other hand, I'm incredibly fond of people who are honest to a fault, so I applaud guys like Kotick and Gene Simmons for their greedy douchebaggery. I cannot stand people who say "I only do this for the love" while cashing million-dollar checks. Entertainment is still a business. Good for 'em. If people actually cared about punishing them for their greed, they'd stop buying the products. That doesn't work, because they're good products, most of the time, and people enjoy paying for the right to experience them.

Poor Tom, here I was hoping that he was at least writing for a small budget download game for PC or console.

But a mobile game? I don't know about you guys but I've never played a mobile game with a deep enough story to require an actual writer...

And I do really like seeing the artistic incarnations of the movie turtles in the cutscenes. Seeing Rocksteady and Bebop was a very cool surprise.

I don't intend to get the game, and I don't even have an iphone, but this might be fun youtube watching.

Hey, you would have thought they'd have also cast Clarke as Rocksteady rather than Bebop!

Uh... excuse me... "Bebob."

Yeah I'd watched that vid a bit after I asked the question. To be honest, Cam's Bebop is pretty bad. I actually was thinking "they should have actually just hired Jester" (because I've heard his Bebop and it's pretty damn good).

Just downloaded it. The game seems simple, at the beginning at least. Lots of positive reviews on Google Play. A noteworthy feature: "Play through STORY MODE, written by Tom Waltz, contributing author of the beloved comic series from IDW Publishing."

I just bought it, Really dig the art style. Very colorful. It's a little too easy. But actually pretty addicting. Due to the cheap price, I'd probably recommend it to others.

...I really dig it. But, and I kinda feel bad for saying it, I am kinda glad they re-cast Danny Woodburn's voice for the movie, because it seems a bit off in the game and not always consistent

Just downloaded the game on Android. Pretty cool, standard beat-em-up. I didn't even notice Cam Clarke voiced Leonardo.

Though I think at 4.99 it's a little pricey (for the content) this has to be one of the best controlled Android games I've played lately, especially for a beat-em-up.

Bebop sounds nothing like Cam Clarke, I pretty confident he actually voiced Rocksteady and they mixed up who voiced how in the credits.

Paramount told me directly when I queried, before I saw that cast list in the video/TigerClaw's screenshot, that it was he was indeed Bebop. Then again since their reply came as "Bebob" like that cast list, maybe they just copied and pasted it from what was written into the game....

Anybody beat this and wanna share some tips? I'm stalled out at level 30. I don't even see the last wave. It's kinda frustrating in the later levels, because you don't really have time to use the powerful combos with all the counters you have to do.
