Quick update on the status of the BWD page: My art mojo is really not on this week, and I’ve got a really big storm incoming right now. So, the page is probably going to officially be Late. I’m so sorry, I’ve been bogged down in redraws when attempt after attempt at inking goes wrong. The update will come… but it’ll probably take some more time. Keep an eye out for the update post, I guess. :S
Sometimes I wonder…is the reason the 2k3 not remembered/liked as much as the OT and Nick show because it lacks nostalgia?
I mean, that’s the reason I was turned off by it in the first place. I saw these serious turtles and April not being a reporter and I was like ‘FFFF whatever’…and make the stupid mistake of not giving it a chance long ago.
What do you guys think?
It basically boils down to a sum of all the factors I’ve seen mentioned so far:
1) Most people at the time immediately rejected it because it was different from the ’80s cartoon. People still slam 2k3 for its “weak” humor, but I dunno man, I chuckle at a ton of stuff in that show. (I have a pretty dry sense of humor though?)
2) Another set of viewers who might have been interested saw the “4Kids” name and noped right out before giving it a look. I was never into anime, so this was not a hurdle for me at the time.
3) It was pretty tough to find merchandise at all after the first couple seasons, and it was never even a quarter as hugely promoted as Nick’s TMNT.
4) It’s also harder to make fans after the fact because the DVDs are out of print and hecka expensive secondhand - not to mention that they never did release any (chronological) collected edition of season 3. There’s stuff on YouTube, fortunately, but it’s not quite the same.
While I wait for the newest version of Dwarf Fortress to approach stability, I’ve started a fort in good ol’ 40d. Reactions so far:
