TMNT: Mutants In Manhattan

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade and Turtles In Time…the two greatest Turtles games to ever grace a console. Since then we’ve had a bunch of substitutes, but hopefully that changes with Mutants in Manhattan. It’s Platinum Games follow-up to their 80s franchise run. Their first offering, Transformers: Devastation, was cool but I found it to feel pretty lifeless. I’m sure the combat will be there, I’m just hoping this game isn’t devoid of life, like Devastation was.

Tekken 7 Screens

I’m a fan of Tekken, I’m just not any good at it. While I prefer the mechanics, I just can’t pull off the moves/combos. Having to hit 50 buttons for a three hit combo doesn’t mesh well with my average hand speed. I always end up mashing the buttons in hopes that something amazing will happen. Between this and Street Fighter V I have to find luck with one of these games.

Street Fighter V Story Screens

Ask me about Street Figher’s story and I can tell you the following:

  • Ryu, Ken, and Akuma had the same master
  • Bison runs an evil empire
  • Chun-li is a cop
  • Sagat was beat by Ryu and holds a grudge
  • Charlie and Guile were both in the army and Charlie was kidnapped by Bison.

The rest is pretty much whatever I can remember from various anime adaptions and that old cartoon on USA Network from waaay back in the day.  Street Fighter V is going to update the single-player mode with more story content. But I don’t even think people will care about the story.  I mean I think it’s cool that I can learn more about certain characters, but I’ll be more focused on learning how not to get my ass whipped online instead of the story.

I really don’t know if I want to play Final Fantasy XV. The last ‘new school’ Final Fantasy I played was XIII and I didn’t really enjoy it, so I’m praying XV isn’t more of the same. Time will tell if my prayers were answered.
