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 150: Polybius

Since I’m planning to eventually review every single episode of the series (probably a never ending task, as I think about it) I’ve been avoiding covering AVGN episodes on release –  as nice as it would be to hit them while they are hot, I feel like I might wind up, down the line, running …

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 23: Ghostbusters: Conclusion – Episode Review

Finally, we reach the end of the Angry Video Game Nerd’s reviews of the various early Ghostbusters games! It only took 3 episodes but clearly this is something James was passionate about. Maybe as a kid he had several of these games and once he got older he discovered that nearly every single Ghostbusters game …

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 …

Angry Video Game Nerd – Season 1 Review

Well, somehow, I did it: I reviewed all 15 episodes, plus two “pilot” episodes of what would become Season 1 of “The Angry Video Game Nerd” . I’m sure some of you are thinking “Wow, he’s really scraping for content if he is reviewing the whole season after reviewing the whole season” but this has …
