Nintendo Universe writes: It has been revealed that within a new episode of The Simpsons set to air this weekend, the creators are to parody the videogames industry and its annual E3 event.
This one really make me laugh, Grand Theft Scratchy: Itchy City Stories.
Yeah that one is hilarious although I do miss Grand Theft Walrus lol
Simpsons are classic! Too bad they too may be going off air due to the voice actors agreeing to a paycut, but the station wanting a bigger paycut. :/
I read that it was resolved and the series was renewed for 2 years.
@admiralvic thanx for the update, glad to hear that love me some sipmsons... Doh!
That's great. Definitely have to watch that, seems to be I can only enjoy the originators anymore these days. The Simpsons will always be the best.
But really, do they really need to parody the Wii-U? Isn't it parody enough on it's own? Seriously, current gen graphics but with a giant, ipad like controller that only one personal can use at a time, and Nintendo's already telling developers there will only be one per system. That'll go over well with the family friendly crowd, because we all know that kids will be just fine taking turns with the massive, uber controller while everyone else plays with the Wii-mote. And which screen do you look at? Dual screens worked for the DS because they were both right there. You can't play a game on a tv and focus on what's happening on the Wii-pad? This thing is a disaster waiting to happen and analysts and shareholders know it. It's no wonder the stock tanked when the Wii-U was revealed. Hell, the stench of the Wii-U was so bad, other companies had their stock punished for even announcing they were making games exclusive to the Wii-U. DOOOOOOMMMM!
They are Nintendo, who thought the Wii would take them back to number 1? Everyone thought the 3DS was doomed. The Wii U will be fine, there isn't going to be a huge graphical leap next generation, so they will be right there with everyone else. The only one controller per Wii U is also not confirmed, more news recently suggests it can use more then one. I'm telling you right now, there are a ton of people wanting a new console, new consoles are always an exciting thing and exciting time. People are trying to predict that the Wii U will be expensive, but you can get a tablet for well under $100, and the tech in the console itself is already a few years old, so again it's pretty cheap. I wouldn't be surprised if it launched for $299 and at that price, a lot of people are going to pop on that, including myself. I buy all the consoles every generation. They revealed the Wii U too soon IMHO, that was why they had a poor stock showing right after E3, we didn't even see the console! I think this years conference will go much better for them. Not everyone is a fanboy, a lot of people just like having the latest console, so if you are thinking the Wii U is going to fail, I'd rethink that my friend.
I'd play Medal of Duty.
And no PlayStatus Zita?
The new episodes have been really good. Ill have to set the dvr.
yes lol I'm sure its going to be hilarious
LOL Definitely watching this.
It's sad that they replaced King of the Hill. The Simpsons is the only one left that doesn't suck. :(
family guy > all ._.
Those stupid as flashback jokes are not funny at all. South Park did a perfect parody of them which is the f***ing truth.
family guy is crap. american dad and the simpsons are way better than that show.
family guy use to be funny but now it became way too boring and its achieve way beyond stupid. I stop watching it but hey that my choice
Commander_TK stole the words right out of my mouth to me, South Park is king. Not only is every episode creative, but their jokes are really funny.
"nothing can be better than the shows that started in the 90s derp" If you don't think that family guy is funny then you simply cannot comprehend the joke. South park is trash. I bet guys love it when cartman takes a dump on the show huh? If idiotic humor is what you like then the more power to you.
King of the hill was pretty bad. I always thought they should have dropped it and moved Futurama up (when they were both on fox) edit: @Commander_TK. Spot on. Matt and Trey are comedic geniuses IMO.
I don't like Family Guy that much but what they should've done is like this: Simpsons, King of the Hill, Futuruma then Family Guy. That would be perfect. Cleveland Show is worthless and that Burger thing they replaced it with wasn't cool. This little talking boy they have now probably won't last too. Right now, the best thing they have is The Simpsons.
Bad airtimes resulting in viewer confusion is what killed futurama, (and should have killed KOTH). I really don't think the Simpsons is the best thing fox has going for their sunday nights (in terms of its comedic value). I think most people hold onto the show because of the fact that it's been on the air so long. I myself used to watch the simpsons religiously up to a little after the 300th episode; I think the one that featured tony hawk.
Really? Kids these days.... The Simpsons haven't been remotely funny for at least a good 10 years. 90's Simpsons > Zombie Simpsons.
I really hate nostalgia nuts
Fair enough, but in this case, nostalgia's got nothin to do with it.
I never see anyone saying this on the Internet, and I'm very surprised. 1999 onwards for The Simpsons has been terrible, just as you said. Futurama is terrible as well.
He's telling the truth. I don't know who writes for the show now, but their work has been trash compared to that of the 90's.
I think they switched writers around the time Maude Flanders died. Then the guy who did Troy Macclure's voice died. And it was all downhill from there :(
If anything consolation, the movie was kinda funny. But it's humor was darker; one could easily see the writers are very different people than those that do the show.
sigh... how do you delete comments these last two were done by accident.
sorry to tell you, but you cant delete comments.
but u can delete ur comment with "editing" before 15 min. runs out.
people saying it isn't funny, probably like the bland humor of shows like Scrubs, Office and 2 and 1 half men etc. The Simpson' humor went from randomness, to well thought out satire.
