Instead of watching heart-warming Christmas specials, he's playing some more bad games of biblical proportions, and the strange Christian-themed games just keep coming! First up is Noah's Ark, developed by Contra developers Konami and released in 1992 for the NES. Wrap your head around that one! After that, we've got Sunday Funday, a religious rehash of Menace Beach, a game where you play as a skateboarder who's trying to save his girlfriend from gangsters before she gets stripped naked. How developers Color Dreams were inspired to turn this into a Christian game defies common sense. And just when you think it can't get any worse, the Nerd busts out the baddest of the bad - Bible-themed games on the CD-i! If you were hoping for peace and love this Christmas, you might be watching the wrong video. So spike your eggnog and grab your stockings, 'cause the Nerd is going to town on these awful games!

For those who haven’t seen it yet, here is a video that details the making of the Nintoaster in the style of an 80’s instructional video.

    • July 30, 2012
    • Amazon

    Con Bravo was my first appearance at a gaming convention outside the USA. It took place in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. I was glad to be there. My schedule was jam-packed with interviews, panels and autograph signings, one of which was taking place at A&C Game Store in Toronto. Unfortunately, my wife and I spent the first day sitting at the airport waiting for our flight which was delayed perpetually. Turns out, after hours and hours of waiting, the flight was straight out CANCELLED. No one was there in person to help us rebook our flights. Their customer service was shit. After waiting on hold on the phone and struggling to get any wi-fi access out of our laptop, we found out there were no more flights open until the next day. Eventually, we chose to rent a car and drive. I wasn’t going to let anyone down! Since we missed the first day, my schedule got really crammed. Furthermore, my main panel got cancelled, because the line at the autograph signing was never-ending. Most people seemed to prefer the autograph opportunity over the panel. In fact, the whole line applauded when we announced we would be extending the signing. We obviously didn’t want to turn anyone away. Even though my panel had to be cancelled, I got to be on a panel with Doug Walker (The Nostalgia Critic) who is really great at entertaining crowds. Here is some video of the panel. It was recorded on an iPhone and is only brief clips. The video and audio quality isn’t that great, but it was the best we could do. I almost brought my real camera, but I’m glad I didn’t try because it would have been extra luggage that I’d have to check at the airport. After the flight was cancelled, they withheld everyone’s luggage until the following day. No, they couldn’t even unload the fucking cargo compartment and give everyone their luggage back! The fans who came out were great! They were all very nice people and seemed truly happy to see me there. That means a lot to me. Thanks for all the p

  • SPECIAL 0x111 'Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie' – Trailer

    • November 10, 2012
    • Amazon

    “Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie” is a passion project by independent filmmakers James Rolfe and Kevin Finn, based on the popular web series. The film is being produced outside the studio system, entirely funded by fan donations. Principle photography took place in Spring of 2012, in the Los Angeles area, with Jason Brewer as the DP. Additional filming is taking place on the East Coast. Editing is in its early stages. The film is inspired by the famous Atari video game burial of 1982. Atari produced a game based on the biggest blockbuster movie of that year, E.T., and rushed it to meet the deadline for the Christmas shopping season. It was a commercial failure and millions of unsold game cartridges were buried in a desert landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Coincidentally, it’s not too far from Roswell, the landing site of a different kind of E.T. The Trailer features music by Bear McCreary (Battlestar Gallactica, The Walking Dead). The track is called “Maverick Regeneration” and <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/play-for-japan-the-album/id450785090">can be downloaded as part of the Play for Japan album</a>. All proceeds go to help earthquake victims in Japan. The final slate says “Coming this lifetime” because we have no idea how long it will take to complete. Any attempt to guess will only prove ourselves wrong. Independent films take a long time to finish. This one is no exception. It’s eventually expected to be released on DVD and/or Blu-ray, and to be available around the world, after showing to some live audiences in theater venues. Digital downloads is also an option. The immediate goal is to finish the film first.

  • S07E08 Alien 3

    • October 22, 2013
    • Amazon

    Made by the notorious LJN, "Alien 3" for the Nintendo Entertainment System is incredibly difficult. The screen does not keep up with the action, the A and B buttons are opposite of what they are in most games, there is a time limit that is practically impossible to defeat and there are teases throughout the game for one-ups and items that ARE impossible to get. If that's not enough, most of the characters are unidentifiable and most of the action in the game has little to absolutely nothing to do with the film. If that's not enough, once James makes it through this horrendous pile of goat puke, the payoff is less than memorable. The game doesn't even get the ending right. It has NOTHING to do with the movie. If you want to understand the real reason why Ellen Ripley jumped to her death at the end of the film, it was probably because she was told she would have to either play this game or die. She made the sane choice and chose the latter.

    Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing (often referred to as just Big Rigs) is a 2003 third-person racing video game developed by Stellar Stone and published by GameMill Publishing for the PC. The box for Big Rigs states that the main objective of the game is to race a semi-trailer truck "Big Rig" to safety in order to deliver illegal cargo being carried by the truck, while avoiding the police. In actuality, there are no police in the game, no such objectives are presented within the game itself and there is no load attached to the truck! Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing received extremely negative reviews when it came out. Reasons being - lack of collision detection, frequent bugs, poor visuals, and severe lack of functionality. As a result, the game is now widely regarded as one of the worst video games of all time

Desert Bus was a mini game that was included on Penn & Teller's Smoke and Mirrors (and unreleased game planned for the Sega CD). It was developed by Imagineering and published by Absolute Entertainment. Absolute went out of business so the game was never released but the Nerd was able to obtain a copy to torture himself with! In Desert Bus, you drive a bus from Arizona to Las Vegas in real time. It's considered one of the worst games ever made, making it ripe for a review by the Nerd! Then the Nerd takes a look at Castlevania II: Simon's Quest Redacted - a hack that improves upon the flaws in the original NES game.

  • S12E01 EarthBound

    • April 18, 2018
    • Amazon

    This video has been in the works since last October (2017), when I first started the playing Earthbound on the mini SNES Classic. It wasn’t originally meant to be an AVGN episode. It was for myself. I never played much of Earthbound before, but it’s a game that always appealed to me. Yes, even when I saw the ads in Nintendo Power. The only reason I never played it much was because I was too busy with Final Fantasy 3 (6) and Chrono Trigger. SNES has so many amazing masterpieces, it’s almost impossible to play them all. But after more than 20 years, I owed it to myself to complete Earthbound. The gameplay took me 45 and a half hours. After recording it all, I decided to put all those hours to good use, and make a video. At first, I didn’t think it would be an AVGN episode, but more of a casual “James review”. But I realized there were plenty of wacky moments in the game that the Nerd could react to. If you’re wondering about the characters’ names such as “Milly” and “Lilly”, my 4 year old daughter named them. To write the script, I had to search through 45+ hours of game footage, to confirm and describe accurately all the moments that I wanted to comment on. Then came a bunch of researching facts, and developing my own personal theories. It turned out, I had a ton to say. It became the longest single-part AVGN episode, by total accident (running nearly 40 minutes). On top of that, I couldn’t resist adding a dream scene with laborious green screen effects. In total, counting gameplay, writing, shooting, editing, the entire video took 137.5 hours to finish, making it the 2nd most time-consuming AVGN episode to date. (Episode 139: Mega Man still barely holds the record at 138.5 hours). Ironically Earthbound was meant to be a break for myself, but it turned into a major task, as all my other projects screeched to a halt. I had fun with this video and am happy with it, but now that it’s finally done, I hope to get back to my per

    • YouTube

    In the 1990's Sega and Howard Johnson's hotels teamed up for a weird promotion for the Game Gear. Kids could go "HoJo with Sega" during this summer promotion. Parents could rent a Game Gear the kids could play while on their vacation, or they could buy some of the Game Tips VHS tapes. These tapes are horrible, filled with basic walkthroughs, codes, and bull. They also have these wrap-around segments with a 90's surfer dude with a Foghorn Leghorn accent working at the Howard Johnson. He goes through almost every position on the hotel staff while making the life one of chubby businessman a living hell. The Nerd reviews this tape today and talks a little bit about the HoJo/Sega promotion.

  • S15E07 Carmageddon 64

    • July 9, 2021
    • YouTube

    Carmageddon is a vehicular combat video game released for personal computers in 1997. It was later ported to other platforms, and spawned a series of follow up titles. Carmageddon 64 was a port of Carmageddon II (originally for PC), and released for the Nintendo 64 in the year 2000. It was going to be published by Interplay, but Titus Interactive took it over (the same guys from Superman 64). It's a game where you race other cars... but it turns into mostly running over zombies, rather than people like in the original PC game. In the German version, you hit Dinosaur-like monsters rather than zombies. Go figure.

    Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) episode 195: Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures. Also known in Japan as "Hello! Pac-Man." Pac-Man 2 is a side-scrolling adventure game in the Pac-Man series.

He joins Pac-Man exploring and interacting with the world and characters around him. Take on a task, and then take a wild ride on a mine cart or set off on an intense hand-glider flight while fending off some unrestful ghosts. This game was coined "the first ever interactive cartoon" by the game's manual.

    This is episode 198 of the Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN), a review of the Commodore 64 and a bunch of it's licensed and weirder games. The Commodore 64, also known as the C64 or the CBM 64, is an 8-bit home computer introduced in January 1982 by Commodore International. The C64 took its name from its 64 kibibytes of RAM. With support for multicolor sprites and a custom chip for waveform generation, the C64 could create superior visuals and audio compared to systems without such custom hardware. Except, well, the software was kinda garbage.

However, he'll need to review every LJN game ever made (while Back to the Future gets re-developed.)

Find out that and more in this game review by Mike Matei of McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure for Sega Genesis!

    It totals about 10 hours of bonus content, (12 hours including the main feature film), which is insane! That doesn’t even count the audio commentary track, and audience reaction track. It should be noted that half of the bonus content has already been posted online in some form like the trailers, web updates, Q&A’s, etc, now all together at home in one package, but it’s still about 5 hours of DVD/Blu-ray exclusives (9 hours of exclusives if you count the bonus audio tracks). Note: The DVD version is not yet available. Getting it on a Blu-ray was a much bigger task, and we assume most people would want that. So the DVD will be coming later. Note: The Blu-Ray is REGION FREE. MAIN FEATURE with Scene Selections and Subtitles (all the same languages currently on Vimeo) AUDIO TRACKS 1. Stereo 2. 5.1 Surround 3.

    • January 11, 2015
    • Amazon

    This was a review I did a while back, but since then “Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara” has been released on various systems. Years back you could only play it in the arcade or for the Sega Saturn (Japan only). However, in the past few years it’s been released on Xbox Live Arcade, PSN, Steam and Nintendo E-shop. It’s STILL one of my favorite arcade beat em’ ups of all time, and if you have never played it, you should give it a try. Note: For digital download releases, they've packaged it with Tower of Doom and now it's called “Chronicles of Mystara”.

  • SPECIAL 0x287 Hooking up Multiple Video Game Systems (by Mike Matei)

    • April 6, 2015
    • Amazon

    Hooking up Multiple Video Game Systems by Mike Matei Fans having been asking me for quite a while about how I hook up all my game consoles. My setup isn’t the most efficient thing in the world, but it gets the job done. There are probably better switchers out there I could be using, but this is just the way I’ve been doing it. I use mostly basic RCA Splitters that can be bought at local stores like Radio Shack and Target. I would like to improve the way I have everything hooked up however. So if you have any ideas on how I can improve my gaming setup, please let me know. I know there are 8 way RCA splitters out there, but really I need one more extreme then that, which is why I haven’t bothered upgrading. I need something that does more like 20 way… What I really need is something that can has more ports for HDMI, Coaxial & RCA all together.. Here’s a list of the systems that are hooked up at my apartment now. And what method I’m using for each. Nintendo Entertainment system (NES) - RCA (modded) Famicom - Coaxial (i’d like to get a modded fermium but don’t have one yet) Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) - RCA Nintendo 64 - RCA Gamecube - RCA Sega Genesis - RCA Sega Saturn - RCA Panasonic 3DO - RCA Turbo Duo - RCA Xbox - RCA Playstation 2 - RCA Dreamcast - RCA Sega Master System - RCA Atari 7800 - RCA (modded) Atari 5200 - RCA (modded) Wii U - HDMI Retron 5 - HDMI Xbox 360 - HDMI Playstation 3 - HDMI Ouya - HDMI

    • June 18, 2015
    • Amazon

    In May 1996, I learned the trials of filmmaking, while making a horror movie titled "A Night of Total Terror". Shortly afterwards, I documented it, with a behind-the-scenes video, made in July 1996. The original VHS-C tape of the documentary was damaged beyond repair. Recently, I discovered a 2nd generation copy, and used clips from it, to make this new documentary, in 2015. The original "A Night of Total Terror" was 30 minutes long, but has gone through minor re-edits over the years.

  • SPECIAL 0x329 SPECIAL EFFECTS - Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie (documentary)

    • July 21, 2015
    • Amazon

    Today is the 1 Year Anniversary of the premiere of Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. The first public screening was on July 21, 2014 at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. It was an epic night for all of us. Here, for the first time on YouTube, is the special effects documentary from the Blu-ray/DVD. It shows the creative process behind the practical effects in the film. Most of the film was shot in the Los Angeles area, inside studios and exterior locations which all required expensive permits. We also worked with union cast and union crew members. It was a big production, but ironically, many of the effects were done with a small local crew, Cinemassacre-style, after I returned home to the East Coast. Enjoy this documentary, which only gives a small glimpse at the making of the film. There is so much more to it. I plan to release more videos like this, over time.

    The classic tale of horror comes to vivid life in this cinematic adaptation of the NES video game. See Dr. Jekyll fight off enemies in hazardous 19th century London. See Mr. Hyde battle demons with his deadly psycho wave! Which will triumph? Good or evil? It's just a trailer. Not an actual movie. A one-time spoof. Not endorsed by the 80's video game, or Robert Louis Stevenson's corpse. This was a fun secret project that I planned for years. The first scene was shot in December 2014 (The pub). The majority was shot this past Summer 2015. The effects shots and post-production was in the Fall.

  • SPECIAL 0x437 AVGN Volume X (100 Episode Marathon Blu Ray Edition)

    • December 14, 2015
    • Amazon

    For fans of physical media who want to own the first 100 episodes of AVGN in your collection. It includes two discs. Disc 1 contains the first 100 episodes (about 19 hours total) with a Play All option where you can have the ultimate binge-watching marathon! Disc 2 contains about 7 hours of bonus material, from the previous DVD’s, relating to episodes 1-100. 26 hours is the approximate total running time of both discs combined. Previously, there has been DVD Volumes 1-8. If you already own them, there is nothing new here. This is for: A) If you don’t already own them. This is a new cost effective way to own the first 100 episodes on fewer discs. Blu-ray discs are more expensive to manufacture, but we crammed so many videos into them, that it is a better buy. B) The ability to watch the first 100 episodes in one straight 19 hour marathon. The videos are in STANDARD DEFINITION, because that is the way they were shot. The reason they are on Blu-ray discs is because they can fit much more content than a standard DVD. We are planning on releasing the newer episodes on future Blu-ray sets, to continue the “X” series. Newer episodes are shot in HD, and will be presented in HD when episodes after 106 are eventually released. For those who do not own Blu-ray players, we are also planning on getting the previous DVD releases back in stock, and “Volume 9″ is still possible. We have a lot of work to do. Region Free and Ships Worldwide!

  • SPECIAL 0x438 AVGN Movie - Digital Effects (Before and After Comparisons)

    • December 15, 2015
    • Amazon

    Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie mostly made use of practical effects, using an animatronic alien (with a puppet version), a monster suit with many puppeteer-operated tentacle arms, and plenty of vehicle miniatures. Only when we were completely unable to do the effect in front of the camera, we would use digital effects. Sometimes they were done to enhance a shot, to remove strings, poles or puppeteers, and other times it was to fix mistakes made while on set. During shooting, we had limited time, due to the expensive Los Angeles locations, and also worked with a union cast and union crew. For a low budget independent film, it was extremely difficult to get all our shots in time. Every day was a frantic race against the clock. Therefore, there were lots of shots that needed to be completed later, digitally. For example, all the shots with TVs or monitors in the background. There wasn’t time to plug them into a power source, and sometimes the images that needed to go on the monitors were not finished yet, such as graphics or animated sequences like the EeeTee 2 game. The digital effects team was big! We had about 80 people working on different shots. There were hundreds of shots that required effects work. We thank everyone for all your hard work! Effects done in computer are known as VFX (Visual Effects) in the film industry, even though all effects are “visual.” (Practical effects are usually called Special Effects. After all, they are more “special”.)

  • SPECIAL 0x706 Contra III: The Alien Wars [SNES] (Hard Difficulty Playthrough)

    • January 3, 2017
    • Amazon

    Mike Matei plays through Contra III: The Alien Wars (Hard Difficulty) for SNES. Contra 3 The Alien Wars is the sequel to Super C for NES. This 60fps playthrough was recorded January 3rd 2017. This is a very practiced playthrough. I beat the game three times before recording this, so I was on the high end of my skill level while doing this. Also, it should be noted, I cut out me farming for bombs in level five. It went on for a long time and it would be tedious to watch me sit and farm for an additional ten minutes for no reason.

  • SPECIAL 0x710 Holy Diver [Famicom] - Full Playthrough (with Mike Matei)

    • January 9, 2017
    • Amazon

    Playthrough of Holy Diver for Famicom with Mike Matei. This is an extremely difficult game made by IREM, probably most famous for making R-Type. The thing that really makes this game difficult is the wonky jumping mechanics. It’s hard to explain, but basically the character doesn’t want to move and jump at the same time. I do have to say there are a few things that make this game somewhat forgiving. Most importantly is that like Ghosts N’ Goblins there are infinite continues. So if you defeat a stage, you can play that stage over as many times as you need to. Also most of the bosses in the game are fairly easy. It is the levels themselves that are brutally difficult. And dealing with the poor jumping controls. If you are trying to beat this game yourself, my only recommendation is just a lot of practice. I played this game a lot before I recorded this video. That way I had a fairly good idea of where to use the items, and how to handle the different enemies. I was still learning here, for example I figured out that you have to shoot the gray bats from the underside during this playthrough. Note: This playthrough was edited down for time. Filmed January 8th, 2017
