I love that cover! My boyfriend hates Christmas music, but I love it. Finally something we can both listen to in the car :)

This cracked me up way too much

Why isn't there White Christmas? or Frosty?

Re: 8-bit Jesus: Christmas Carols Performed in Retro Game Style

White Xmas=Have a final little fantasy

Frosty the snowman= silent night man, tho it it could be a silent night parody.

I downloaded it at home and now I am at work and can't listen to it. I can't wait until I get home and can finally listen to it.

This is a great find! I love how it blends the game music with the Christmas music.

Wonderkarpyep. but they werent bebop and rocksteady yet. so technically i'm right :P01/28/2015 - 5:00pm
E. Zachary KnightBebop and Rocksteady have already been introduced in the human forms. They were the duo after Shredder's helmet.01/28/2015 - 4:55pm
Wonderkarpmy only complaint is no bluray boxed season sets yet. WTF Nickelodian!01/28/2015 - 4:42pm
Wonderkarpthe voice acting and story telling quality are awesome. Its like they took everything that was great about the original show, and Batman Animated Series'd it but kept it funny too01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
WonderkarpIts Awesome. Bebop and Rocksteady are going to debut this weekend. The new take is Bebop is a thief while Rocksteady is an arms dealer. took 3 seasons to get them on the show.01/28/2015 - 4:41pm
Goth_SkunkAhh! I see. I'm afraid I'm too invested in Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, The Walking Dead, and Hemlock Grove to notice the new TMNT on TV. :(01/28/2015 - 4:40pm
E. Zachary KnightMy kids love watching the 90's TMNT movies. They love the new TMNT cartoon on Nick. Yet, none of them really enjoyed the the new one.01/28/2015 - 4:39pm
Wonderkarpexecution and if there is a real wanting for something new on the big screen. There is somewhat of a wanting for new Ghostbusters on the big screen, but most people seem to agree that the new film shares little with ghostbusters beyond its original premis01/28/2015 - 4:38pm
Wonderkarpadding homages to classic via good storytelling. The new TMNT movie was just a crappy Bayformers affair that did nothing to develop character, with a mishmash of a story. Nerd Culture can accept new takes on older franchises. It just depends on the01/28/2015 - 4:37pm
Wonderkarpactually, Goth_Skunk, TMNT is a thriving TV show on Nickelodian which has enough old and new storytelling to create a thriving new product. its in its 3rd season and it just gets better as a show. The CGI Show is universally praised for being new yet01/28/2015 - 4:36pm
Goth_SkunkI propose that the new TMNT movie was not about making nostalgic adult nerds smile, but introducing the franchise to a new generation of younger fans. And some of those fans may even be kids of the nerds that grew up with the original TMNT.01/28/2015 - 3:55pm
Goth_Skunk...disservice to the franchise. But when I look at it, I see a franchise fanbase that, the last time anything major happened in the franchise, all its fans were kids. Those kids have now all grown up and are adults.01/28/2015 - 3:54pm
Goth_SkunkRemember how Escapists new EIC was talking about nerd culture being "curmudgeonly?" This ties right into that as well. These people I talked with complained about how the new TMNT wasn't being true to its roots and because of that it was doing a great...01/28/2015 - 3:53pm
Goth_SkunkTake TMNT for example: I recently watched the new movie, and I thought it was decent. But a lot of people I've talked with who grew up in the 80's and 90's on the TV show, the video games, and thecollectible toys all unanimously seem to think it's trash.01/28/2015 - 3:52pm
Goth_SkunkRe: Ghostbusters, I don't care if it's a reboot or a sequel, I'm just happy to see another Ghostbusters movie. But it's fascinating to hear people in our age demographic talk nostalgicly about the things we grew up watching or reading.01/28/2015 - 3:51pm
WonderkarpI have a GBA. I dont need to buy virtual console gba games.01/28/2015 - 3:11pm
MonteI wouldn't care about running emulators on the 3DS if nintendo would just release more virtual console games. There are so many titles they could have up but don't. Seriously, its ridiclous that after 3 years they STILL haven't released GBA titles.01/28/2015 - 3:06pm

Wonderkarpyeah. some people are salty over it. but that wiki article was filled with vitriol01/28/2015 - 12:06pm
