It’s been a while since we’ve last taken a look at the Game Players Game Tape series. In tape number 6 we have games from the publisher Ultra. Now, this is a funny one – the last tape was Konami games, and this one is Ultra games. Thing about that, for the few of you …

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, …

The Future Of Nintendo

Ah, Nintendo. The most darling of gaming companies to most any gamer, especially one born between about 1980 and 1995. Nintendo brought gaming back in the United States after the video game crash, and it never really went away.

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 …

2 Weeks With The SNES Classic Edition

As the title suggest, I’ve had the SNES Classic Edition for about 2 weeks. That’s been enough time, along with my work schedule and Xadara stuff, to manage to complete everything on Super Mario World and to play all the way through Earthbound. Sure, I’ve touched on a few things – unlocked Star Fox 2 …

I Got A SNES Classic Edition Console

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 …
