Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

Blaster Master, Bionic Commando.

What was that one game where your character had his hands or arms replaced with robot ones, and you go around smashing stuff... You could get little robot helpers depending on what letter combinations you picked up.

If it's that Angry Video Game Nerd moron, I'd take advice from a Wal-Mart employee before I'd trust him. Any game he sucks at, he swears at a lot. He sucks at a lot of games.

Seriously, the first TMNT game was my favorite of them. I never actually beat it (actually, I don't think I ever beat any Turtles game except Turtles in Time on SNES), but it was a decent platformer.

Also, A Nightmare on Elm Street was pretty fun, especially if you can get four people together to pay as a group (which will require the four-controller accessory, but hey).

*sighs* Let me guess. You're thinking that I'm basing my entire argument based on what like four people I know have said right?

I've been on at least three different message boards, all of which have had a thread about 'What games do you think sucked' and which when this game was meantioned, was agreed that it was pretty bad. Only one or two people saying otherwise.

Also have talked to many people in real life. Can't say the exact number, but it's been an estimate of 20 or more. All of agreed it's pretty bad.

Pretty much 90% of the people I've met who know of the game all say it sucks. So It's my understanding that it's pretty universally agreed that it sucks.

I'm not saying it will suck for everyone, but chances are...

But really in retrospec that can be a very bad argument as Final Fantasy VII is pretty universally agreed that it's the best RPG ever. Which it isn't.

In conclusion though, in the end it's up to the person who started this thread. They'll decide if they want to play it or not.

Metal Storm, if you can find it. It's a side scroller game where you play a mech style robot. The graphics are quite good, animation is very smooth and it's the only NES game I know of with parallax backgrounds. The best part of the game though is the controls, they're very responsive. And you can flip gravity and walk on the ceiling. Many of the stages are complex and imaginative, requiring you to flip gravity several times to figure out how to advance to the next section. The boss battles are fun too, most of them featuring very large sprites, something else not found in many NES games.

It's not very long and it's quite challenging, you can pick up powerups but it's mostly one hit and you're dead. Still it's fun to play and one of the best NES games I can think of.

Lostorbit said it right and the music is quite good as well

Dont forget that it had two seprate models after you get an "A" powerup the Gunners armor changes the level designs are great and the later boss battles are inginious

Heres a little bit of trivia

The boss of Level 4 made an apperance in Irems R-Type Final


Also Heavy Berrel is a great Arcade shooter

My favourite NES titles:

Crystalis.
Metroid.
Super Mario Bros. 2.

Aside from that, it really depends on what you like. If you're into RPGs, I would recommend Final Fantasy 1 and Dragon Warrior 3.

I give up. This is the first message board I've been on to have any love for this game.

I mean I've never hated the game and pretty much exaggerated how one shouldn't pick it up, just because I figured people would be pretty indifferent to the game. That, and I tend to do that from time to time. Really I don't think anyone is missing anything if they skip the first turtles game. It's faults were a bit too much for my (and as stated most people I've met) tastes. It's a mediocre platformer at best.

But I give. Maybe I missed something. I'll have to go play my copy sometime and see if anything changed since I last played it.

I'm sorry I said anything.

considering i just played(and beat it) again last month, i'm gonna say nostalgia isn't the deciding factor on why i like the game.



Yes, it's very difficult in a couple of areas, but no more difficult than, say, getting used to defeating robot masters in Megaman. If you've got enough control to withstand the patterns of them, then TMNT holds no horrors for you.

Beyond that, I liked the combination of gameplay elements then, and would enjoy and update to it now. the overworld map where you can cruise in the turtle van, hunt out different buildings for the side scroller levels, different items you can use, almost like Castlevania. Even the ability to rescue a captured comrade in later levels.

And, some of the bosses really just requires you use a specific turtle to beat them, so there's a bit of a strategy element.


People who throw down their controller because they can't get past the dam stage, then proceed to say "this game sucks" because of it, well, just lazy imo. most NES games take a few times of practice here and there.

don't get me wrong, i also enjoy TMNT 2 and 3 in their arcade style, but save for Tournament Fighters, which as a fighting game is in and of itself an arcade style, they've not really made a TMNT game w/ the variety to it the first one had.

I'll admit, the game had some neat ideas, but all in all they didn't mess together well when I played. The dam level was just the straw that broke the camel's back. But as I've said before: I don't really hate the game, I just find it as a mediocre platformer at best. I could beat the game no problem. If I can beat the orginal NES Ninja Gaiden, and Castlevania 1 and 3, then this game won't be much of a problem. I just have no desire to really do so.

We all love our games that most people hate. I myself Love the PS2 game 'Galerians: Ash' That game isn't exactly loved by many. Hell I've found the game sealed for sale in a fry's for 3.99. People do NOT like this game, but I personally loved it.

Still doesn't change the fact that most people aren't going to enjoy it.
