YOUNG JUSTICE SEASON 3 ANNOUNCEMENT & SNEAK PEAK
Cartoon Network has finally allowed the Emmy Award winning TV series a third season. Series creators, Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti announce the return of their show.
I THOUGHT THIS DAY WOULD NEVER COME I’M ACTUALLY SOBBING SOMEONE HOLD ME.
HOLY CRAP DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!
I know, right!
All you Shaq Fu fanatics out there (The Shaq Fu-natics, as they like to be called) - it’s time to rejoice. The maker of Shaq Fu, Shaquille O’Neal, has launched an IndieGogo campaign to fund a semi-sequel / remake titled Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn.
While it’s unclear how much of the original Shaq Fu flavor this will retain (no voodoo priestesses, as far as we can tell) it will definitely star Shaq (who’s trying to cosplay a drawing a child made of what they think a bodybuilder looks like) and involves lots of Fu. Apparently it’s going to be a brawler, in the style of Streets of Rage, as opposed to a fighting game, in the style of Shaq Fu.
So, actually, if you really liked Shaq Fu, this new Shaq Fu game probably isn’t for you. Interesting decision by the developers.
At the very least, there are some PRETTY spectacular rewards for donors, including:
$1,000 - Shaq will follow you on Twitter for exactly one year. He makes no obligations to ever RT or Fav any of your terrible tweets though.
$6,500 - You get to work as a concept artist for the game! Yes, for paying over 6 thousand dollars, you get to do someone else’s job for them, and there’s no guarantee anyone will actually listen to any of your ideas.
- $25,000 - Go to Atlanta or Orlando and eat food with Shaq for exactly two hours. Topics of discussion can include: Shaq Fu, Kazaam 2: Return of Jafar, and Shaq’s favorite underwater researcher, Shaq Cousteau.
- $35,000 - Watch a basketball game with Shaq. Also, pay for your own travel. AFTER YOU’VE PAID $35,000.
- And the most exciting number, $0 - You are in no way obligated to play Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn.
The goal is a modest $450,000 - but if they get more than that, they’ll expand the release to multiple platforms and add more content. Also, they’ll just be REAL surprised.
It’s nice to see Shaq admit that his previous attempt of self aggrandizement through video games was a failure. Now if only he can admit that his rap career was just as bad.
Oh thank goodness, for a second there, I thought the YJ fandom would let GLTAS be happy and celebrate getting something we’ve been asking for without feeling the need to de-rail GTLAS-centric posts and shit on our parade — which had nothing to fucking do with them.
LET US HAVE NICE THINGS GODDAMMIT. The first post wasn’t even up an hour before this shit started. I HATE THAT FANDOM. Love the YJ show. Hate the fandom.
This is…disturbing. Is the YJ fandom so unfettered by their lack of fetters that they feel the need to offend another fandom by placing their baggage or other peoples happiness? Now I love GLTAS and I love Young Justice. I’m looking forward to GLTAS’ Blu Ray release and I know that eventually, WB will release Young Justice on Blu Ray but FOR NOW, can we NOT act like a bunch of spoiled brats?
It’s kind of hopeless to ask for “calm” and “rationale” on the internet but please be adult about this, be reasonable because I KNOW YOU CAN HANDLE THIS. You should be able to handle the fact the GLTAS is getting a Blu-Ray before Young Justice because otherwise your “spoiled bratitude” will be doing both fandoms a disservice by crippling discussion and ruining others enjoyment.
(Thank goodness GLTAS is getting that crisp HD. We now await for Young Justice and a Collection of the DC Shorts please.)
I find it interesting that the CG DC Nation shows are the first ones to get Blu-rays. I wonder if there’s a reason for that.
Personally, I believe that the CG of both Beware the Batman and GLTAS would benefit from Blu-Ray than traditional hand drawn animation…at least from a technical stand point. I’m still scratching my head as to why there is no Young Justice Blu-Ray (but I know there’s no grand conspiracy) but I’m happy to see GLTAS make the jump. Hopefully, this is a sign towards getting all of DC Nation on Blu-Ray and YES, I do mean ALL of DC Nation.

Relax, I’m not blaming you. Game Informer screws up all the time and I really don’t like them because they’re owned by Gamestop. There’s just something insidious about Gamestop owning a video game magazine, telling people what games to pre-order/buy.
