Actually glad to see Activision go. Maybe the next publisher the tmnt finds a home with will put a little more resources and effort behind their projects

Yeah the only TMNT game of theirs I liked to any degree was Mutants in Manhattan.

I miss the Activision of old. Pitfall is still my jam.

Of course!

You people are acting as if Activision has been fired, or "left" in some way. They had a license! It expired, like it was always going to! The license they had wasn't profitable enough for Activision so they didn't want to renew it any further! Shesus...

???

Old NES licensed games still work, what kind of question is this? Physical games will always be fine.

You can play Batman NES based on the 1989 movie with Michael Keaton Batman right now in the year 2017 if you wanted.

There are disc games that are online only that don't work anymore because the servers have been shut down so it's a valid concern. Cut the guy some slack for asking, Jesus.

This is news to me since I never really thought of that. So I assume games like phantasy star online and those RE online games for the PS2 are now pretty much useless.

Its mostly for online only games that have no single player mode. Obviously games with single player modes will work forever even after the multiplayer is shut down.

Even Nintendo shut down the Wi-fi for all their Wii and DS games. You can't play Smash or Mario Kart online anymore on Wii or DS...but you can still play them in single player or local multiplayer of course.

This is what I was getting at. I wanted to buy a retail copy, of course this involves activating it on Steam so wondered whether it would still be accepted by Steam. Amazon don't sell it any more that's what got me thinking this was a problem.

Yeah I know. Episodic games annoy me the most because of that which is why I'm not a fan of Telltale.

I like the 2003 game as well. Love Mike's "Eat Feet" line! Battle Nexus is fun with four players but playing by yourself can get boring. Mutant Nightmare is only fun for a little bit.

With Battle Nexus I get the impression the developers listened to the fans and then proceeded to fix everything that actually worked in the first game thereby ruining it.

I hope whoever gets it gives platinum games another shot there seemed to be a lot of issues with that game like them promising 60 fps and it being 30 weird choices when all they had to do was making transformers devestation with turtle switching and combo specials like out of the shadows did but keep the idw designs

A rerelease of the arcade games like final fight double impact would be great if they can strike a deal with Konami and even get some concept art etc as unlockables

A fighter would be nice as well as a batman tmnt team up game based on the crossover comic

All in all the one I want most is another platinum game and hope the new owner of the license realizes why no one like mutants in manhattan

Metroid-ish TMNT has only been done like what, twice now? And both were at least alright. I'd like to see it done better still.

Also still holding out the impossible dream of Super Robot Wars but TMNT. Probably any kind of decent strategy game, really. I'd play TMNT Disgaea or XCOM.

I was thinking of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Radical Rescue for Gameboy and Wayforward's semi recent Danger of the Ooze. TMNT 1 has some shades of it too, yeah.

I think what people want, is a TMNT game that plays like the original games.
