    First Chrono Resurrection, now this. The companies just keep twisting the knife further and further into the back of their fans.

    If you can get a hold of the PSAs, download them now while you can, before they vanish from the internet. You need to hear "HEY KID I'M A COMPUTAH" at least once before you die alone in your forties. It's quintessential.

    Oh this is b*******....

    Me and my friends LOVE Fensler's versions of the PSA's. We quote them ALL the time...man....this really sucks. I'll be sure to get them right on my comp right away. Thanks for the heads up Matt.

    BTW, which one was your fav? I really can't think of anything beating "Porkchop Sandwhiches".:p

    ... what's Chrono Resurrection?

    And the PSAs rocked. But... I deleted them all, since Fensler was doing higher quality versions.

    I can partially understand Hasbro's position on this, but c'mon...this is the Internet.

    See the thread in the Video Games Forum. It's a semi-remake of the SNES game Chrono Trigger.

    Can these not fall under Parody?

    To an extent, however, there may still not be legal depending on how much they infringe on the marketability of Hasbro's product. I think what probably throws the wrench in things is that G.I. Joe is usually marketed to children while these parodies are very adult, something that Hasbro may not want associated with thier product.
