I can understand aging out of Catdog, but Hey Arnold is an ageless classic of animation.

I'm puzzled why Dan/Giantbomb is covering this? I guess they got a code and thought, "Why the hell not"?

No Kenan and Kel? Seriously!!!

This looks awful. Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed is a legit great kart racer, highly recommend it.

Just saw this on the Switch store and couldn't believe the price tag on it. Also it's hard to believe this is nor a mobile port. But looks like its not.

What happens if the guy from Nick Arcade is a character on this, and then they play this game on Nick Arcade?

This literally looks like a PlayStation game from top to bottom. Not even PS2; this is astonishingly shitty. Nobody appears to have given a single fuck about any part of this, from the game, to the properties, to the experience, to the art; I cannot believe a company put this out in current year.

Dan complaining about the controls when he's been the one changing them, only to be confused and told by Vinny it's his doing is peak GB.

40 Smackers and they don't even have a basic sound byte for each character from their own libraries!

"Too old for Spongebob" hah

Yeah this game seems barely passable at best, definitely feels like a ps1 era licensed kart racer, didn't know they still did soulless cash ins like this.

No characters from Rocko or Kablam, no deal. Then again this is from GameMill, so this was expected.

WOW, this looks terrible. Like, way beyond the terrible I was expecting. How do you fuck up a Nickelodeon kart racer that badly?

Also, huge stable of beloved characters to pick from, and half of the roster is just the weird modern baby-looking turtles. No Rocko? No Ren? No Kenan Thompson?

I think New Dan would have a lot to gain if he worked through his flippant disregard for animation as a medium for children (I suppose DBZ is a baby step). This game does look awful, though.

This is what happens when you just want to cash in on your IP so you have some, by their own description, "dynamic, high-growth interactive entertainment video game company focused on bringing branded entertainment to die-hard fans" like GameMill pinch off a hot, steamy Mario Kart ripoff. For as little production cost as possible.

Kids don't know any better, right? They'll have mom or dad coughing up that nonrefundable $40 in no time to silently scoot around as their favorite characters...or one of the Tweenage Mutant Ninja Turtles making up half the roster.

At least it performs well, I guess. That seems to be no small feat on the Switch.

@reasonableman: I thought they were randomly covering a PS2 game in 2018 until Dan opened the control menu and it showed a Switch controller

GameMill is at it again!

For those that don't know, GameMill published the classic Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing. So they should have had Alex on the Quick Look for this :)

And this seems to be in their wheelhouse for types of games they usually produce when looking at their website.
