Hell yeah, I hate those battery ones.

I think they will get around to developing one, somebodys gotta make that money.

I prefer the free range games to the battery ones because it's much less cruel to let the consoles run around and such.

What could be done differently from the first game? (Apart from releasing it on all systems) According to The Infosphere, the previous game received 'weak responses'. How would you improve it?

It's difficult for me to say seeing as I had a Gamecube and none of the other last gen consoles, and as we know the Gamecube version got pulled at the last minute. Typical that now Nintendo have brought out a console which is much more popular, and a new Futurama game would almost certainly be released on there, but there isn't one...

I did see the trailers and reviews of the Futurama game, and from what I can see the main improvements could have been made to the originality of the gameplay. It looked brilliant on the Futurama side, with great jokes, references, and well written, but the gameplay looked typical run on the mill platforming dross, the sort that any movie tie-in has, with little originality and probably didn't have the greatest gameplay (but hey, I wouldn’t know, I never really played it...)

Since Futurama made a comeback, why doesn't Nintendo make a Futurama game for their Wii system?

Yeah, the issue of a sandbox-style (that's the term you're looking for) Futurama game has been discussed before at great length. It would be seven shades of awesome. The "for all systems" part is entirely down to licensing - that's for the suits to work out. The first one was for PS2 and Xbox though... and games exclusive to a given console are becoming fewer and fewer.

Except for Mario and Zelda games on Nintendo.  Also Pokemon.

What would there even be to do in a wide open sandbox style Futurama game?  Has there been a Simpsons game like that yet?  If so, was it any good?

So you'd be a gangster in the year 3000?  Or do you mean that it would be like the way I, and most people I know, play Grand Theft Auto, where you ignore the actual missions and just drive around and wreck stuff instead?

If you like. I do the missions... but if it were Futurama, even the random stuff would be hilarious. You could sabotage a transit tube so that it spits people out into a cactus store.

No, that should be one of the actual missions.

If I actually owned GTA I'd probably do that too, but since I've only ever played it while at a friend's house, I usually just skip to the driving around destroying stuff part.

Grand Theft Futurama... I got some ideas for it.

Low-level felony brings dumb cops like Smitty and URL in flying cars.
High-level brings the full force of the DOOP - with the Nimbus hovering overhead and firing at you while scores of attack craft zoom down and Zapp Brannigan's voice booming out.

Areas to explore in underground Old New York... as well as all street-level New New York... and the sky.

Usable suicide booths, like the first game! Best thing ever!

Billboards can be flown through.

NPC Zoidberg can be shot, beaten, and run over, but he'll still suck up to you and try to be your friend.

Random sections of the city may be under alien attack at any given time, adding an unpredictable dynamic.

One mission involves stealing numerous famous heads-in-jars from the museum for sale to a private collector. These must include Leonard Nimoy.

Gameplay interchangeable between Fry, Leela, and Bender. Scruffy is a hidden bonus character whose special weapon is a mop.

Various adversaries include Mom, the Robot Devil, Zapp Brannigan, the Omicronians, Santa Claus, and the Brainspawn.

Player can be eaten by Horrible Gelatinous Blob.

Usable items of equipment = Finglonger, F-Ray, portable smelliscope, etc

Ahh... I'm dreaming. It's never going to happen.

Maybe make it like Red Dead? Free-Roam, but with a story behind it... choose-your-path style gameplay, you get to create a character and do that modify voice setting in most customizable video games nowadays... work at Planet Express with Fry, Bender, Leela, etc. You could have romantic interests... hopefully not with Farnsworth.

Make it like The Simpsons Game graphics... cel-shaded with 2D traditional animated cutscenes.

QUICK RANDOMNESS: Just saw a "Male Enhancement" drug commercial on Comedy Central and the spokeswoman's name was "Dr. Z." Hahaha.

ANYWAY, you would go on deliveries with the crew, help Bender with his crimes, fight people with Leela, conduct crazy experiments with Farnsworth, do taxes with Hermes, kill people with Zoidberg, and whatever Amy wants to do with Amy.  wink All in a free-roam environment where you can hurt people, kill people, steal, go to other planets, all that great stuff.

with a story written by the Futurama staff, and voices by Futurama voice cast and a T or M (for the stuff you can do) rating, This game couldn't possibly fail.

EDIT: FORGOT! You would also be able to teach alien women to love with Fry and Zapp.

Here's another idea:

"Bender's Inferno":

Bender is dating Fanny again, and she gives him her address.  Bender drags Fry along to see her.  Then they find out she's living in Robot Hell and is really dating the Robot Devil!  Then Bender  tries to ask the others for help and they refuse and blame him, then he is forced to face Indiana Jones-style obstacles to prove his love for Fanny so she can date him instead of the Robot Devil.  Bender also has a Chris Tucker-like Robot Hell tour guide who goes with him.  Fry is captured and chained up in a dungeon.  In the end, once Fry is chained to a rocket ship, he has to choose, Fanny or Fry.

You suggested that as a future episode idea in some other thread. It was an awful idea then and it's an awful idea now.
