Why the Internet is Overreacting About RICK AND MORTY Season 4

Why the Internet is Overreacting About RICK AND MORTY Season 4



  1. Josh says:

    I’ll be honest. The consoles need all the big titles they can get. Right now, there isn’t exactly a GLUT of top quality titles. 

  2. RedwoodCoast says:

    Only cheaper 4k tvs will make me think about the xboxone.

    Video seems to be working a bit better with full-screen actually working (on the iPad), but the forced advertisement that interrupts the actual video’s playback?  Don’t see how that’s an improvement for the end user– Legendary maybe, but not the end user. 

  4. Any episode that makes me laugh is a keeper.  Thanks for what you do for us little people.  I for one am a die-hard lover of the most recent superman… The action, music and look of the film gave me chills, and still does. 

    Also, thanks for fixing the site’s video (it may have been on my end) it seems to be running very smooth-ish.

    If past cross promotions are any indication of what’s to come, you’ll probably want to get this game on PC, because NVIDIA gave away free copies of both games during their initial releases with purchase of a qualifying NVIDIA card. My guess is that the 800 series cards, which are set to drop later this year, will coincide with the release date of this game.

    For the record, I got both Arkham City (yay!) and Arkham Origins (boo!) for free by buying new NVIDIA cards. So PC should be the way to go.
