Become a Bebop & Rocksteady Expert In TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hello out there in PlayStation-land! This is Chris Kohler—I’m Editorial Director at Digital Eclipse, co-developer of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection. We’re excited for the upcoming release of a landmark collection containing 13 classic Konami TMNT games produced in the 80s and 90s for home consoles, portables, and the arcade.

Become a Bebop & Rocksteady Expert In TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection

With all 13 games included in the Cowabunga Collection, you can see the mutation of TMNT games unfold in front of your eyes. Today, we thought it would be fun to look at the evolution of two mainstays of the Turtles games—Shredder’s loyal but hapless goons, Bebop and Rocksteady.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (8-bit)

You encounter the pair early on in the first TMNT home game. Bebop is the game’s first mini boss, attacking you in a cramped sewer corridor. While this fight is going on, Rocksteady stands guard over April O’Neil. If you touch Rocksteady, he will do damage to you—there’s no way to beat him now, just concentrate on Bebop. Bebop doesn’t fire a weapon; he just tries to ram you! At the end of stage 1, you get the chance to take on Rocksteady and his trusty machine gun. Just when you think you have an upper hand, Shredder shows up and kidnaps April yet again!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles The Arcade Game (Arcade/8-bit)

Rocksteady is the first boss you take on in the classic four-player experience. Again with a machine gun, he fires diagonally to punish you for doing too many jump kicks. Bebop shows up at the end of the next stage, packing a Ripple Laser weapon. And as if that weren’t enough, Bebop and Rocksteady show up together at the end of stage four!

Farming Simulator 22 Platinum Edition expansion details revealed, out November 15

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Dear simulation games enthusiasts and those wanting to break free from the demanding pressure of some end-of-round statistics: we got you covered and invite you to join the farm life! Of course, we came prepared with some good arguments on why you should. Other than the calming effects of caring for your crops and tending to fluffy farm animals.

Farming Simulator 22 gets a big and shiny upgrade with the upcoming Platinum Edition. What this means is, well… it’s the perfect way to start your new life as a virtual farmer. Let’s take a closer look at what’s coming and what kind of soothing gaming experience we offer, shall we?

The Farming Simulator 22 Experience

But first, let’s recap, what the base game of Farming Simulator 22, that is included in the Platinum Edition, already offers: Diverse American and European maps to build and manage your own, ever-expanding farm. Agriculture, animal husbandry, forestry. Big sandboxes full of nature for you, your farm animals, and even your friends. If you prefer playing with friends, run a farm together and join our massive (and helpful, inclusive) community.

What else? Hundreds of authentic machines from the world’s most renowned brands are available – you have probably seen more of them already than you imagine. You will definitely notice even more of them in real-life after having operated them in Farming Simulator. With production chains, you form an agricultural empire – buying buildings like bakery’s, biogas plants, or various factories. The four seasons, introduced with Farming Simulator 22, challenge you to adapt to seasonal changes with your farming operation.

You decide whether you want to manage idyllic vineyards, striping the hillsides of your land with grape vines and olive groves in a Mediterranean environment; run an animal farm with sheep and cows in vast mountainous grasslands of the European Alps – or harvest hundreds of acres of corn (American-style) in the U.S. Midwest. 

Did we mention mods, yet? Because the in-game ModHub offers an endless, growing pool of mods – officially tested by our developers to customize your farming experience with quality modifications.

Over 40 New Machines

Now, with the Platinum Edition, we stock up on everything: New brands, including Volvo and others, join the fleet of over 100 big players of the industry (like Case IH, CLAAS, DEUTZ-Fahr, Fendt, John Deere, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, Valtra and many others – you name it). Over 40 machines get added – pushing the counter of available vehicles and tools to more than 500 overall! That’s especially interesting for all those machine enthusiasts – but even if you’re not (yet) one of them, you’ll be impressed what kind of machines are being operated in the exciting world of agriculture.

One of the most interesting additions is the Volvo L200H High Lift – a modern and powerful tool to step up your logging-game. It can unload a truck faster than you ever imagined! The real thing was only just unveiled to the public. Meaning that virtual farmers will be among the first to operate the machine. It’s the successor to the L180H – the market-leading wheel loader.
