I'm still enjoying the game, the dialogue in the comic cutscene thingies is really tight. I'm coming to the end of Leela's levels atm. I may or may not have spent a few microtransactions to get ahead. shifty

I refuse to spend any real money on it because I also don't like the whole "freemium games" thing, but I am happy to watch adverts and stuff. I'd also be happy to buy the thing outright if that were an option.

The audio snippets they've used have been chosen really badly. It was particularly noticeable on Leela's levels because I guess she had fewer obvious multi-purpose one-liners. The tone with which she says "That's so sweet" is really out of place and I'm pretty sure I can hear crickets in the background of her gun-blaster sound-effect when you activate her special move, suggesting that they just ripped the audio from a DVD, which is a bit lame...

As for the writing, the story isn't anything special, but the dialogue is great. I'd say it's much better than the comics - it feels like dialogue that could easily be taken straight out of an episode to me. Am I right in thinking that Patrick Verrone wrote it? It's a really fun game on its own merits, but having the extra Futurama scenes to enjoy after each set of levels is the icing on the cake.

I'm up to Calculon's levels, now. It's nice to see part of the game playing as something of a direct sequel to "Calculon 2.0" - always nice to see some fan-pandering extreme continuity in these things.

Seeing as he's the only official Futurama crew member to appear in Wooga's behind-the-scenes video, I'm assuming he did most/all of the writing for the game. I could be completely wrong, though.

I, too, am up to Calculon's levels, and man some of them can be a real pain. mad

I'm really glad that the game limits you to five lives at a time. I know it's meant to be so that you'll be tempted to pay to keep going when they're used up, but for me, it's a perfect sort of "OK, maybe you've had enough" kind of reminder.

That's pretty cool, I think I'll look it up.  The only thing I ever bought off of Redbubble was a TLOU t-shirt...  shifty

I'm guessing that absolutely nothing happened during that period.

A Futurama equivalent of the Frinkiac tool has been devised. Just search for a line and an appropiate screengrab will show up. https://brannigator.com/

That's really cool!  And what's with the radioactive neon glowing strings on the guitar and bass?

Probably nylon, and probably he thought they looked cool.  Eh?

Nothing glows just for show. It must be radioactive.

Man, this section could use some activity. The thread I made a year ago is the fourth damn thread on the first page.

Well, the show was cancelled three years ago. There isn't much to talk about unless you want to haphazardly regurgitate quotes, like how many communities based on TV shows end up.

There. I'm helping.

True, but there's still different things to talk about. Most TV show forums I'm on don't strictly talk about new episodes.

Well, apparently today is the fourteenth anniversary of Jurassic Bark's airing.  Occasionally I'll catch partial episodes on late-night TV, but it's been a long time since I've watched JB.

iirc, I got choked up the last time even though I was just watching with the commentary track.

I like the story of the dog, and I'm glad they did it, but I don't ever recall having an emotional reaction to it. Luck of the Fryish sticks out in my memory more, but it was the first episode I didn't see on original broadcast; took me like a week to download an rm copy of it too.

I think I found JB's ending too downbeat, personally. Wasn't like it offended me or anything, but it just put me off. Luck of the Fryish has got to be one of my favourite all-round episodes, I think the ending was handled spot on. Leela's Homeworld would be a close second, in that regard.

As someone who's been adopted, Leela's Homeworld has a bit of an extra impact to it.  And yeah, it was a good balance of angst and positivity.

Rewatching the series along with all the commentaries. Just finished Into The Wild Green Yonder.

Would probably rank the movies
Big Score > Bender's Game > Yonder > Billion Backs

That back and forth about Amy's butt is hilarious, and especially when Bender, who hasn't been listening refers to her as "Big Butt".

My opinion on favourite Futurama episodes and movies shifts back and forth over time.  I did binge the entire series with commentary over about a week, I think, and it was extremely cool.  The only thing lacking, for me, was the presence of Katey Sagal in the commentary sessions.

Just about a week? Geez. I just watch 2 - 4 episodes every night before bed. Then I go through the commenties before changing discs.

I lost my season 4 DVD. Does that make me a bad fan?

Yes.

Though if you lost it in a volcano like Zoidberg's medical degree, then you might at least deserve some credit there.

Makes ya wonder how big of a fan you were to begin with if you were so loose with it that you actually managed to lose it shifty
