The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles look less ugly!

A couple weeks ago, Hamza posted some pictures of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Activision and Red Fly Studio's upcoming venture. Naturally, he was curious why they were so hideous looking. They look a bit like the horrifying Mason Verger in Hannibal, whom I just learned was played by Gary Oldman as I took to Google for the character's name. I also decided against linking a picture, because he still creeps me out. Google on your own accord.

Anyway, those initial teaser images came before facial rigging was implemented in the 3D models, hence the unsettling pinned back smile and generally uncanny look. The shots below have a bit more life, a bit less "creepy mannequin that will kill you when you blink," though the wrinkly-watermelon-headed turtles is still a stylistic choice that's staying.

Look out for my full preview of the game in a bit.

Why are the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so ugly?!

Okay, maybe I'm being too critical here. I can't help it though, considering I grew up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was that kid. That kid who had all the action figures including the dumb non-TMNT figures, all th...more

Max and I were trudging along in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, when I shared a gut feeling that Kevin Spacey is not a very nice person. Max proceeded to share a story related by an ex-girlfriend, who had her adoration of Spacey crushed by that rude, kissy man.more

Max and I have hippie liberal hipster opinions about CoD: Advanced Warfare

Max and I were playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare while hungover, and started devolving into dumber and dumber jokes, and then Max busts out a term like "jingoistic proto-fascism" because we're a couple of San Francisco hipsters who definitely don't have informed, individually refined opinions about things because the world is a vampire and everything is fake.more
