What franchise is next to get an unnecessary redesign? Mega Man kind of escaped it, but instead we get a shitty show about Mighty No. 9.
I can't believe veggie tales got worse. I mean, they're all worse, but it looks like the textures got a downgrade for VT. At least Angry birds went 3d and used some feather tech
>americans can no longer receive proper biblical education from friendly fruit
I have a fear that some Doom 4 enemies or the marine will get some unnecessary redesign. At least the cyberdemon is safe.
There was an image with a "desaturation complete" bar at the bottom, I wish I had it saved.
That's because that was the best game in the series by far.
Thank god those 343 hacks finally got MCC working otherwise they would TRULY be Satan's sons.
Nonsense. We live by its example
We are the software pirates
Who don't do anything
We just sit at home
and lay around
and if you ask us
to do anything
we'll just tell you,
we don't do anything
What the fuck did they do to VeggieTales? Larry looks like a tard now, yeah he was a little slow in the originals but he wasn't downright stupid. And Bob looks like he's high as fuck.
>one of the main characters is a tomato
cmon Christians you can do better than that
>all these terrible remakes
inb4 someone posts the bob the builder remake
Cannot be worst than The Mysterious Cities of Gold 2012. Burn it, burn it.
>Children who grew up with Veggie Tales and Bob the Builder are now old enough to post on /v/
Here, have another. :^)
>mfw this whole thread
Will kids never grow up with proper video games or tv shows that aren't shit?
Now that I think about it, Veggie Tales was incredibly well made considering it was a christian-themed show.
The guys behind VeggieTales were actually pretty talented. Some of their parody episodes were legitimately funny for adults even. Their other shows were not that great, like 3-2-1-Penguins!, but the Larry-Boy spin-offs were decent.
I think business mismanagement was their downfall, which is why Big Idea got bought up.
Here's a clip from a fun toon worked on by the creator of Earthworm Jim, Skullmonkeys, The Neverhood, and the upcoming Kickstarter project Armikrog.
Jesus christ, that is genuinely the ugliest animation I've seen in the past decade.
I remember playing a game based on this show on steam about a year ago. I'm really glad I could switch to the originals because the new design was fucking hideous.
Game itself kinda sucked but eh. I'm sure you can get it for under $5 easy nowadays so I'd go for it.
>Guess Tara can't do the voice anymore.
That's depressing. I never watched that show as a kid on the grounds if it being for girls and therefore "gay", but that still hits me hard.
>think the redesign looks like fucking trash
>see it in action
>it's actually not bad, just different
Still prefer the old designs personally but I'd be completely full of shit if I pretended the actual animation (which really benefits from like twenty years of advances) wasn't better.
You'll like this bit:
When NBC, a national broadcasting company based in New York, began airing VeggieTales episodes in September 2006, it edited the episodes to remove overtly religious messages, including references to God. The original sign-off message--"Remember kids, God made you special and He loves you very much!"—became a simple, inclusive "Good-bye!" The changes were made at the request of the network's standards and practices department to enforce compliance with network policies regarding religious neutrality. The original dialogue remained viewable by users of the network's closed-caption feature.
The conservative watch group Parents Television Council complained to NBC about the changes. L. Brent Bozell, president of the group, complained of the network "ripping the heart and soul out of a successful product," adding that "if NBC is so concerned about that four-letter-word God, then they shouldn't have taken 'VeggieTales.' This just documents the disconnect between Hollywood and the real world."
>f NBC is so concerned about that four-letter-word God
Even the Japanese can recognize a good cartoon when they see one. And they pray to tree gods and wind gods and shit
For what it's worth "four letter word" is just a fancy way of saying "shit you aren't allowed to say without offending people"
Doesn't make their argument any less retarded though.
>implying that's not just a weeb
That said I wouldn't be surprised if I found out the japanese fucking loved veggietales. I've seen completely unrelated groups get hype over the dumbest shit before.
I was trying to forget about that, asshole.
He didn't imply that God is spelled with four letters, don't force this shit
Seriously if you have to make up stuff to bash the lowest hanging fruit in modern society then that makes you an even bigger idiot
I watched it because George Carlin narrated it, and I was 5. One of my earliest memories of watching his stand up I was sitting in a laundry basket and hugging my Cat in the Hat doll.
Veggie Tales is actually on the more fun loving side of Christianity. Sure they talk about God, but they like to have fun too and even in that video you can see it's not always about God. Not like those creepy cartoons made by the Jehovah's Witnesses where they try try their best to be normal, but it only ends up showing how they control and instill fear into their children to be afraid of anything that is perceived to not come from God like fictional wizards and stuff. As if pretend fantasy magic power ever made anyone believe in real magic.
[spoilers] if it makes you feel better, these fuckers are just decendants of the original Looney Toon characters from a distant ass future. [/spoiler]
It was just a special, but everyone got their panties in a bunch and thought it was a new series and got buttmad because of the redesigns, Courage got a 2014 special that didn't air on TV
Not him and I've never seen Steven Universe but that show is complete trash.
Granted the only western cartoon I've probaby seen since 2010 or so was a few episodes of Gumball and it was alright.
holy shit, it's the exact same goofy voices he uses in his stand-up
>oh yes, I love children
>mfw all the memories came back with a simple WHEEEEEEEEEEEEESH
Fuck you that shit scares the piss out of me.
I remember being so surprised by this when I was 11 or 12 and discovered both his standup specials and that he was on thomas the tank engine at about the same time.
"Four letter word" is a common euphemism for vulgarity, as the vast majority of such words are in fact four letters long. The point that Bozell was making there was that NBC was treating religious references in a kid's show the same way they'd treat the use of the word "fuck" or "shit" I.E. censoring it.
>Powerpuff girls, samurai jack, justice league unlimited, teen titans, billy and mandy, fosters home, ed edd n' eddy, KnD, Recess, Dexters lab
nah mang early 00s was fine, warner bros and hanna barbera specifically had it rough though
>all of Eustace's good voice actors are either dead or retired
>they couldn't even get someone who sounded similar to voice him
Whenever you mention a lineup like that, i get shitty memories of the "The Grim Adventures of the KND" and how disturbing and weird the entire Delightful Reaper segment was
>remember watching this show as a kid
>heard this show got a reboot
>see the new character designs and watch the 1st episode
>Activision killed Spyro and used its corpse to jumpstart a different franchise altogether
The only one of those that started after the year 2000 that was any good is Billy and Mandy.
And the weakest seasons of PPG, EEnE and Dexters Lab all take place in the 2000s. Especially EEnE and Dexters, their later seasons are not worth watching.
Man Gargoyles was the fucking best.
That said when you grow up on that and go back to watch TNG reruns it's not hard to just see Xanatos, Demona and Puck in every fucking episode. Kinda like how I can't watch Breaking Bad without seeing the dad from Malcom in the Middle.
>Old family vacation video has me yelling about this.
>It actually exists and wasn't a byproduct of my stupid 5 year old self's imagination.
Fucking serves them right for swapping the timeslots for Blue's Clues and Bob the Shitter like 10 years ago or whenever the fuck it was.
That made me so fucking enraged because I could never actually watch Blue's Clues anymore because I would always be busy during its timeslot and so my only choice was this pile of garbage.
Fuck. I am STILL butthurt about that.
I disagree. I thought the majority of the school episodes were still fun. The episodes where they try to escape school and the one where all the guys dare each other to go a day without a specific thing both come to mind as really good episodes from the school.
Later seasons of Dexter was hot garbage, though.
>implying I'm not welcome to redesigns
Post fun cartoons
Did anyone else get an Avatar The Last Airbender vibe feeling when watching this?
>implying I'm not upset that Green Lantern got canceled for this
This. 4 is too visually noisy. 2 gets something of a pass seeing as how there was a big graphical jump from the 1st to the 2nd, and at the time it was a real draw, but 4 has no excuse. All frill no thrill.
Not him, but I watched it and they're actually less expressive when animated.
Also the episodes are extremely watered down. They have a few good jokes about invisible hands ("does my wrist look sprained?") but otherwise it's garbage in comparison to the old stuff.
Mega Man 7 was an okay redesign but Mega Man 8 was hideous, despite it still being a good game.
a crack in time ratchet is his best design
I liked the leaked version of him in the PS4 game the best, honestly
It's the closest he's been to a HD version of the original design
What the FUCK did they do to my veggie tales?
>that jump from halo 1 to 2 on the SAME hardware
Go is alright if you're not so attached to the old Teen Titans that you can't accept that it's a stand alone thing and look at it like it took the original's place. It's one of those hit and miss kind of shows. When it hits, it can actually be decently funny. When it misses, it's cringe as fuck. That waffles episode comes to mind as a particularly bad miss.
Nope, the movie has his bigger and wide head like A4O
Amy could do with a skirt that shapes around her hips, Rather than stop short of showing her weenie roaster when standing straight and curl to the sides like some kind of hooker.
