There was a GI Joe arcade game in the... mid 90s? That was basically the best game in the arcade at the time. Your character was visible from directly behind, and you controlled motion side to side, as well as running 'forward' into the screen and progressing the game, and basically shot the shit out of all sorts of Cobra and alien units. One of the few beat 'em up(like Captain Commando or TMNT) or multi-level progression games that I actually beat in the arcade.

This WotC GI Joe game will probably be horrible, but I'll at least check it out, for nostalgia.

*EDIT* If they remake a version of that arcade game though... I call Snake-Eyes! You guys can be the other nubs.

A game based on a pull-cord toy. Why not? Beats My Pretty Pony, I guess.

I still remember the G.I. Joe and the Curse of the Mummy's Tomb record I had as a kid with the over the top voice acting. "YOU'LL NEVER MAKE IT JOE!!!"

So WOTC is making a GI Joe game but not a Forgotten Realms game? I so wish I could buy that IP from them. I would have made billions on it by now.

Anyway, "GI Joe is there! A real American hero, GI Joe!"
