Game Of The Year!
omg trashman wins release of the year 2005.
What a nice winter release.
I thought this died back in 1984 but it seems to be coming back.
Any Care Bears or Cabbage Patch Kids games coming out?
what... the... crap... (simple post for a simple (no, scratch that), crap game)
We have a video of this and my little sister watches it all the time, the worst thing is that it is the christmas one. IT'S SO DAMN HORRIBLE!
lol poor game does is it that bad ???
1. i can't believe this franchise is still alive
2. seeing this ROM makes me think
i'm too old for my GBA
...I'm sorry, after that whole Penny Arcade vs American Greetings incident, I can never see this franchise in the same light. Ever.
Oh gosh, that was so wrong...
Can someone explain to me what said-Incident was?
In approximate chronological order:
1) American McGee releases Alice, and gamers go nuts, as it's a good game with a fresh take on Alice in Wonderland.
2) McGee announces that he's going to try a game based on The Wizard of Oz. Gamers are heavy with suspense, as McGee is sure to use another fresh take on it, right?
3) McGee announces that it's going to be "darker" and "more mature" -- in other words, he's a one-trick pony, doing this same stunt with everything. Gamers grind their teeth.
4) Penny Arcade creates the infamous comic, sort of as a sarcastic "What's next? American McGee's Strawberry Shortcake?"
5) American Greetings, the company that owns Strawberry Shortcake, demands that the strip be removed or they will press legal charges. Tycho and Gabe comply, and here is the result.
Later on, American Greetings takes a HUGE hit in their profits (something like 25% in only three or four months), likely due to this. PA also does a retouch. Check the newsposts on the days between these to see it unfold.
Question 14 here also touches on this, with Tycho's own response on the denoument. You can also see another recounting of it, along with an instance of the comic, here, albiet at a lower quality than I'd have hoped for.
omg. i wonder how the world is lame.
