Man… this person is either as tough as wet tissue paper or the biological father of one of the turtles and is a proud father. The headline is so ridiculous that I simply cannot read this article.
Lol, yea I mean it’s a bit much. Look, I’ve teared up in a movie a few times like a big p*ssy, so I’m guessing it’s maybe the same? I don’t know, but your comment made me laugh.
Yeah man. I’ve felt the throat itch in a few movies me and my girl watched through the years. I had the same itch and the watery eye when me and my girl played through the first Telltale walking dead game. She cried her ass off and I’ve been calling Lee her dad ever since. Hell he’s been her ring tone for years now. And of course the infamous FF7 as a kid.
This game? This made him cry? Unless all four turtles FINALLY ended up in shredders turtle soup he needs to wash his face, get it together, and not let that happen again.
I laughed hard at Shredders turtle soup.
LoL. I hear you. However, I'm thinking he's talking about the nostalgia and reminiscing of the good ole days when the games like this originally came out. The author of the article is a huge fan of the series as was I. I remember playing Turtles in Time in the Arcade and the SNES version and noticing the differences between them; I loved that Neon Night Riders stage and music. I played Hyper stone Heist on Genesis in 92. Games like this also came out at the time that side-scrolling street brawlers were all the rage: Final Fight, Double Dragon, Streets of Rage. Heck, I may tear up too playing this game and remembering when I used to play games like it tons of times in the 90s along with my childhood friends when one had no care in the world. LoL
My good man. I watched the original TMNT VHS until the tape wore out and snapped. I had the Turtles, rat king, krang, Baxter, shredder and super shredder, and the Turtle van that shot sewer lids. I beat every game and every version more than once. The infamous Original on NES where Donatello and Leo were the most important characters in the game. Hyperstone heist like you, Manhattan project, turtles in time, both versions of tournament fighters (genesis and snes), and remember the joy of seeing the Arcade game in the arcades for the first time and throwing away a weeks lunch money to beat it with a team of equal minded kids. I’ve got all the smite skins, I used them in injustice, and have always loved being a turtle.I have had this game AND the collection on my news finder for a very long time.
All that being said, as a fellow victim of strong nostalgia, this guy is as strong as a mouser.
Nostalgia is literally classified as an addictive substance. It’s tears from a nerd who is refusing to grow up.
that's Turtle Power, man.
So much fragile masculinity in this comment chain
Right? I don’t condone the writer’s actions. Crying over nostalgia is weird. But the way some of the comments are describing their “tearing up” moments is funny. There’s a lot more to the stories that we aren’t getting.
I sobbed through Everything Everywhere All At Once. It was a heart wrenching movie and I was incredibly moved by it. So was my GF. Who cares? Art moves people. It’s not the same situation as what the writer is detailing.
Nostalgia shouldn’t move a person to the point of tears; that’s strange.
Nostalgia makes person emotional. Stop the press!
In other news, the game is great!
This makes me so happy
Tears for 10’s.
Tears for Turtle Power!
Tears for the UK calling it Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles back in the day cos they thought ninja was a bad word.
The review was so high, this reviewer made me cry.
All these excellent reviews. Been waiting on a great game again since elden ring. Loved turtles in time. Summer gamings going to be great.
I'm just happy a decent TMNT game is being released. So much love for the IP I just wish Nickelodeon saw what it could do with it.
this game is a very good indication that they just might know what to do now.
I thought the cgi version was well made at least in the beginning and had great references. This new stuff is bad though.
The only time I got the feels was on the MGS 3 ending.
Not sure if this game will evoke the same response.
What a great game! Yes indeed!
This preordered my digital copy. It’s really shaping up to being one of the best Beat ‘Em Ups ever made
Not gonna lie I cried watching Braveheart. Freeeeedom!....gets me everything. Sniff, ahem...anyway tears for this I find ridiculous that being said iam glad turtles have made a solid comeback can't way to play it myself.
For all the negative Nancy's, he's saying he was emotional playing this because it's such a good game, and probably w a brought up with turtles in his childhood. We have not bad a good Turtles beat em up in over 10 years..
The nostalgia hive-mind keeps getting worse.
When i was younger i was crying like a little baby when ET was lying in the water looking white and was dying In that operation room with Eliot beside him😳
But i never was crying about a videogame
I enjoyed how enthusiastic this review was.
Made me laugh when he calledthe composer "Lee Topes" though.
One of these TMNT games was the game that made me fall in love w gaming along with Contra.
Beautiful. I got the limited run collectors version but it said 5 months. Guess I have to get it digital too.
Cowabunga dude I'm hyped hyped to play this masterpiece.
Love that it's on gamepass! Gonna play the hell out of it!
