    Everytime I heard you say Raycon I could only think about the movie The Phantom Planet


    Some scummy kid next door has challenge me to a water fight, so I can't watch the whole vid..... Right I'm off to boil the kettle 👍

  • johnnyboyhulk

    I miss shit pickle

  • AriochStarr

    No disrespect to James or anything but he's such a terrible gamer. As an entertainer on the other hand he's definitely top of the freaking world. Throughout the video I was always watching his footage because it's so interesting.

    I thought he would tie it all together by explaining that MK is basically a ripoff in itself. It’s the love child of Pit Fighter and Big trouble in little China.

  • gogosegaga

    life is complete now we have a new episode of AVGN :)

  • Drew

    Yes a new episode!

  • Rainingfallout

    Ayyy that classic intro

  • Pow

    I'd love to see a modern re-imagining of Tatoo Assassins. It had potential, in my opinion.

    What about "Kazumi NInja"? Have you talked about it before?

  • TheMadVentriloquist

    I like the soundtrack of Titanic, but not the movie: the track "Southhampton" is cliched but enjoyable.

    "The auditory is like an anal fisting." I haven't been able to finish the video because I'm currently curled up in the fetal position after laughing so hard i think I might have broke important internal organs.

  • Torontogosch

    "Looks like a broken-off Banana..." Never in my life i had laught so hard.. and i watched ALL OF your Videos...

    These videos make me think the nerd will be a guest character for MK11.

  • Nikita Yudin

    How can you make a game with a sole reason of trying to copy MK's success and forget to program fatalities? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?


    Will the nerd ever review the Lupin 3rd games?

  • justgary

    Review in 2024

    Shaq Fu amd Clay Fighter were the worst fighters and I owned both. Absolute garbage. I actually loved Primal Rage.

    Great video, but you missed talking about the Expect No Mercy.

  • HeavyMeta

    I have a suggestion. How about you review the Spongebob Squarepants games?!

    I have been a fan for a long time...but it makes me die a little inside when I hear you do advertising.

    • TheDragonSsJ

      We're in a rescession man lol

  • gorillazfan242

    Great video! Glad to see it just the nerd doing his usual review. The skits and the guests were not my cup of tea.

  • DH2007able

    Time Killers! I played this once at a babershop, I could never remember the name of this game

  • tafblader

    you missed out on SUPER BOTTE&BAMBA II TURBO, even for the unfamiliar with the talian trash television it's worth to check out

  • Jimmy Zappa

    Eh, Olyphant was right. It was pretentious. Carey talking to Kaufman's family as he was Andy? That's just lunacy and a straight up God complex as well as making the set's crew a living hell for being Andy. Which is not just being the character but being totally obnoxious off-camera.

  • jherrenor

    40:31 that random Mystical Ninja training music came from nowhere before that rage out.

  • 2revoemag

    You know. I just finished rewatching every episode on auto-play and been a fan for over a decade. I wonder how I'll feel rewatching these episodes in ten years. Future me: "Ooooh, right this is when he started doing sponsors at the beginning of episodes."

    Ed Boon, as an April Fools joke, said that Rancid would be in a handheld port of MK Deception. Considering all the guest characters now, I wish that was true back then.

  • Antasma1

    3:36 Is that a Jojo reference?

  • Freedoomer

    "Ok boss, we got the models and levels, now what?" "Program the trucks and make a winning mechanic and thats it" "Roger that sir!"
