Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 30: The Simpsons – Episode Review

While today the show is considered long past its prime, seemingly begging for cancellation, back in the early 90’s the Simpsons was the greatest thing on TV, a phenomena that I think hasn’t been rivaled since. I recall very early on being a fan, watching the show every chance I got. Of course, being the …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 38 / 39: An Angry Nerd Christmas Carol – Episode Review

Normally I would follow the proper order of releases for Angry Video Game Nerd episode reviews, but seeing as today is, well, Christmas, I felt it only proper to jump ahead and cover the 2007 Christmas Episodes – An Angry Nerd Christmas Carol. This was a pair of episodes released in December 2007 which follow …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 29: Independence Day – Episode Review

Whoa, the Nerd covering a Playstation Game? Man, 2007 really was a year of growth and expansion for James and the Angry Video Game Nerd. Right, getting to the point, in this episode we have Independence Day for the Sony Playstation. It’s a pretty average game – that sub-par kind of average, from the looks …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 28: Die Hard – Episode Review

Time for what is considered another classic Angry Video Game Nerd episode, we have James reviewing Die Hard for the NES. Now would be a good time to mention that, for some reason, I’ve still not watched the film Die Hard! I know enough about it though to know what’s going on in the game, …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 27: Silver Surfer – Episode Review

Here we have what is probably one of the most famous Angry Video Game Nerd episodes – Silver Surfer. This has to be one of the most difficult games on the NES. That simple. The game is simply unforgiving, and that aspect is the focus of the episode right from the start.  It seems like …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 26: Sega 32X – Episode Review

Ah, the Sega 32X. This crazy thing was a 32bit add-on to the Sega Genesis which was intended to act as a holdover during the tail end of the Genesis’s life, before the Saturn had released in the United States and Europe. Interestingly, the thing was actually released after the Saturn in Japan! While the …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 25: Sega CD – Episode Review

The Sega CD was one of many CD based gaming devices produced in the early 1990’s to capitalize on the then-new CD-ROM technology which allowed for over 700 Megabytes of storage for game data, compared to the 2 Megabytes or so most traditional ROM cartridges allowed for at that time. The problem is that this …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 24: Spider-Man – Episode Review

Finally off the trio of Ghostbusters themed episodes, James takes on a set of Spider-Man games this 24th episode of The Angry Video Game Nerd. Coming off of the slightly longer format of the previous episodes, James keeps this one down to 10 minutes – a “standard” length, you could say, for a Nerd episode. …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 22: Ghostbusters: Follow-Up – Episode Review

It’s time for part 2 of the trio of Ghostbusters game reviews that James Rolfe did for the Angry Video Game Nerd series. Part 2 gets a little more in depth on just why the NES Ghostbusters game was so terrible, but still does so in a comedic way. Really, who can’t read that ending …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 21: Ghostbusters – Episode Review

Getting into the guts of AVGN Season 2 we have a trio of episodes devoted to video games based on the Ghostbusters franchise. The original film is considered an absolute classic by many, and its sequel, Ghostbusters 2, while not as well received, still isn’t a bad film by any means. The show eventually got …
