Yes, the characters cameo'd in an episode of the 2003 TMNT cartoon, specifically one of the Fast Forward season 6 episodes. The one where Viral traps the Turtles in a VR video game, in which one of the levels is a saloon where they fight several of the villains of that show, and are later seen playing a friendly game of cards with the C.O.W. Boys. 

@  wonko the sane? : (27 January 2021 - 11:15 PM)

I don't remember one... But the original tmnt cartoon was just so long that I could very well be wrong.

@  Echowarrior : (27 January 2021 - 10:18 PM)

I remember that show too. Didn't the characters cameo in a Ninja Turtles series?

@  RichardT1977 : (27 January 2021 - 09:12 PM)

I'm pretty sure that Marshall Montana was voiced by the same actor as the title character from BraveStarr

@  wonko the sane? : (27 January 2021 - 05:04 PM)

I'm just happy I'm not the only person that remembers that show.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 January 2021 - 03:56 PM)

Sounds like a spin-off for the Cowboys of Moo Mesa.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 January 2021 - 03:10 PM)

Bat Canyon sounds like a parody adventurer hero character on a show-within-a-show in a kids' cartoon.

@  Rycochet : (27 January 2021 - 01:26 PM)

If it's any larger, the roof will collapse and it'll become a batcanyon.

@  Donocropolis : (27 January 2021 - 12:29 PM)

The Batcave got so full of glass cases for dead Robin uniforms that Batman had to move into a bigger cave

@  Rycochet : (27 January 2021 - 11:43 AM)

Mrs. King was Battman's deadliest foe, she killed 6 Robins, Robins you've never even heard of, and snapped Batman like a twig.

@  Paladin : (26 January 2021 - 10:08 PM)

Scarecrow plays the LONG game fighting Batman.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:17 PM)

I had to "delete" the download, and now the video is working correctly (as a streaming view).

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:16 PM)

Strangest error? I downloaded the rental for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, and when I went to play it, it started an episode of Scarecrow And Mrs King. That show IS apparently part of my library (probably snagged it when Apple offered premiere episode for free), but I don't recall ever claiming it....

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

And with 3D World on Switch, my last reason to keep my Wii-U fades away.

 

I'm not sure I understand the purpose of all this limited-time jazz with 3D All-Stars, though.

This 3D All stars makes me think on the next Nintendo system we may see an attempt to make Super Mario Maker 3D featuring Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Odyssey themes with a Super Mario sunshine expansion.

No way, I don't want to be seen flailing my arms looking like an idiot with that stupid Wii! I'm going back to my Eyetoy and Kinect!

To be honest, I'm more disappointed that they aren't included the expanded content from Super Mario 64 DS.  Improved textures, more characters, more levels, it's a bit disappointing not to have that content be available with the 3D All Stars improvements.  I also got to agree on Galaxy 2, especially charging $60 for the release (that's $20 for slightly improved iterations of games 10-20 years old).   I'm tempted by a retail preorder just because of the likely limited quantities, but it feels like Nintendo is fleecing us a bit.  Well, more than usual.

 

 

That said, I think the most interesting stuff is the side merchandise being made.  Mario Kart AR looks REALLY fascinating, and the Game & Watch device is quite novel, we'll see how expensive that is.

I'm kinda wondering if they'll have Galaxy 2 as paid DLC down the line.  I could see them doing that.

 

Or, hey, a second All-Star "Spin-off" collection, maybe for closer to Christmas.  Galaxy 2, 6 Golden Coins, amd 3D Land could make a pretty decent second volume.  It'd be kinda like the old Sonic Gems Collection, where one game is CLEARLY the headliner, but it'd still be kinda neat. (Admittedly, 3D Land would probably be the hardest to port...Thousand Year Door would make a decent replacement, but it'd be kind of "off topic", not being a platformer...maybe Super Paper Mario?  Mind you, as long as they're doing collections, they really should just do a Paper Mario Trilogy collection.)

3d Land shouldn't be that hard to port since plays on 2DS just fine.

I'm psyched for 3-D All-Stars. It might be an unpopular opinion, but Super Mario Sunshine is one of my favourite 3-D Mario games, probably only behind Galaxy. I still routinely boot up my Gamecube in order to play it; a very underrated system.

 

I'd always hoped for a 3DS port of Sunshine, as it seemed to be the next in line for a portable version (all the NES, SNES and N64 main Mario titles have had handheld ports, so Sunshine seemed the next logical choice). This is good too, though; can't wait to see it in HD.

Same, not buying sunshine was one of my 'gaming regrets' and I never could get a good emulator copy. As previously mentioned I do kind of wish the Mario 64 came with the extras from the 3DS version.

I never played Sunshine, so I can't really say anything. I'm probably going to get this just to see what these games are like.

I got Mario 64 on the Advance and one of the virtual consoles (honestly don't remember which one). It'll be nice to try playing it with a decent controller.

I really liked Sunshine, a lot more than Galaxy -- expect for those levels where they take away the FLUDD. Using the water jets to pull off all kinds of crazy maneuvers is a lot of fun. Why does the game insist on taking that away so often?

 

 

Don't need to rebuy Sunshine or Galaxy, but my old 64 doesn't seem to want to read the Super Mario 64 cartridge anymore, and my DS remake appears to have gone missing, so I might just end up getting 3d All-Stars anyways.

I liked the FLUDD-less levels, but only as a change of pace.  They worked because there were only a small amount of them, and Mario still had meaty gameplay even without FLUDD.

 

Given that there's now been a fair amount of 3D Mario games, they don't have the same novelty.  Heck, they probably wouldn't have had the same novelty if I'd played Super Mario 64 before playing Sunshine.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Almost cheaper to buy physical than to buy an SD card large enough to hold all the games coming out.  I’m reaching the limit of a 256 GB card, and 512, much less 1TB, cards are still just a bit on the pricy side.

I have absolutely no preference either way, really. But considering the complete and utter lack in incentive to go digital, and the almost ridiculous cost: I want the plastic. I want the jewel case to put on a shelf (oh... I actually can now... hmmm.), I want to be disappointed by the inclusion of the clips to HOLD the game manual and the complete lack of game manual.

 

In short, I'm paying almost 100 bucks, let's have the whole game buying experience.
