Leo slices and dices into TMNT: Out of the Shadows

All hail our fearless leader

Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello have all done their thing; now it's time for Leonardo to step up and show 'em why he is the strongest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

Leo has always been the blandest of the four. Everyone else has had a defining trait: Donny's the whiz kid, Raph's the abrasive hothead, and Mikey's the practical joker. Then there's Leo who's just... there. Yeah, he may be the leader and all, but he never gets a chance to cut loose.

That's why I'm loving his new Nickelodeon incarnation. He gets all his leadership advice from a sci-fi cartoon that looks Star Trek if done by Hanna-Barbera. He develops a forbidden crush on Shredder's daughter Karai. He's an honest-to-God character now.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is still on track for a summer release on PC, PS3, and 360. I suddenly realize that I never did play it at E3 this year after promising myself that I would. Whoopsies!

(You know you are awesome, Zak!)
