“i’ve always knew you were nothing but a heap of junk metalman.” wait, Megaman just heard about this fucker like 10 minutes ago. How is that at all enough time to form such a strong opinion. especially when you use the word “always”.
April 9, 2010 at 8:56 pm
is it still possible to download the audio file of this?
April 9, 2010 at 8:58 pm
oh nevermind, i found it. this new website is TRICKY-DICKY.
April 14, 2010 at 1:17 am
hehehe, he said dicky. but how did you download it? I can’t find it…
April 14, 2010 at 1:32 am
It feels like a movie script to me, especially at the chapter breaks; those feel like commercial breaks. funny. these are really cool btw, are you going to do any more?
April 15, 2010 at 9:59 pm
wow this really works as a bed time story.
September 2, 2013 at 3:54 am
I know right!
April 16, 2010 at 2:59 pm
i can’t find it anymore. there used to be a link to the original post of this that had all the different parts on the same page… it had a link to download the mp3 at the bottom of that page… but now i can’t find that page. when i found that page, i saw the link and was like “DUH, i found it” but then realized the link didn’t even work… SO I FOUND THE LINK AND COULDN’T DOWNLOAD THE MP3… AND NOW THE LINK TO THE MP3 IS GONE ENTIRELY… 🙁
maybe it will come back?
April 16, 2010 at 3:03 pm
OH WAIT DUDE! I FOUND IT!
but the link to the audio file just takes you to the homepage… LAME.

Shut up Kent.

May 11, 2010 at 5:23 pm

May 16, 2010 at 1:29 am
ooo! it’s story time with James!
May 21, 2010 at 7:07 pm
I put up a mirror for the mp3, since the link seems buggy:
If however this is considered inappropriate, let me know so I can take it down.
June 1, 2010 at 5:03 pm
Makes me want to do a sort of slideshow to go along with the audio.
June 9, 2010 at 1:55 pm
Even your cat came to listen 😀

“The W was for Wily.” That sounds like something Homer Simpson would say right after pointing to his mouth and reminding himself “food goes in here.”
Flash Man second? This writer sucks at the game.
July 12, 2010 at 8:23 pm
THIS SHIT IS ASS!
July 21, 2010 at 10:10 pm
“carefully jump the tornadoes to get close to him.”
“and also: do not forget to fire your gun. and WHATEVER you do, DON’T turn off the game while trying to shoot him after carefully jumping the tornadoes to get close to him. you will not beat him if you turn off the game at that point.”

I watched these videos some months back and thought I would watch through them again but I got a sudden urge to play Megaman 2 about 5 minutes into this one. I must say though, I had the Blaster Master Worlds of Power book as a kid and I couldn’t get enough of it. I would love to get my hands on the other books. I also think you should do readings some of the other books, though I can see it being very time consuming.
August 5, 2010 at 3:42 am
I used to own this book. I think I bought it at Scholastic book fair. I can’t believe he has this. Holy shit, this guy is a collector. Watch out, he’ll collect you and keep you in his basement.
August 23, 2010 at 4:38 am
I really do hope you do more of these. I actually enjoy them, I listen to these while I do class work or my art.. I’d love to have you read Shadowgate! Pleeez!
August 25, 2010 at 4:14 am
lol, he’s more than welcome to collect me. 😉
September 7, 2010 at 9:16 pm
Yeah, I wouldn’t mind if he collected me either. I’d sing the AVGN Theme Song until he let me roam around his house and touch his wife… wait, scrap that last part.
Anyway, if you have any more time in the future, James, please do another one of these. I call it what GameInformer called part of theirs (though theirs was just a joke), Super Readplay. Seriously, make it the official title. Like anybody at GI cares…
Oh, and I love how he fucked up in the reading sometimes. He seems less robotic and more human. Yes, I said that completely on purpose. I had it planned through the entire episode.

I picked up Infiltrator for a dollar recently. Cleaned up the cart to play and couldn’t believe they produced such a bad game. I picked it up thinking it was a top gun knock off or side-scroller. WRONG! Infiltrator is a first person view of a man staring at his thumbs in front of a “control panel.” You start the game and it crashes your helicopter immediately because the controls are so jacked. After you inevitably crash the game calls you an idiot. Also, the graphics are par to a turd baby Atari just crapped out. I wouldn’t wish this game on my enemies. This “game” isn’t even reviewable for the AVGN. I am amazed that some one saw fit to write a whole story about it. I feel dirty just for having played it. In the words of James “What were they thinking!”
October 15, 2010 at 3:35 pm
this is ….. good
October 18, 2010 at 8:26 pm
As awesome as it was normally, the addition of the soundtrack was a really nice touch. It sort of added a mood to the otherwise too bland storytelling, no offense. But it worked, and it was a nice nostalgic touch to really bring back some memories to help visualize what you read.
October 24, 2010 at 4:24 pm
dude, James…. do you have the other ones, like Wizards and Warriors, Castlevania, and Blaster Master? those were really good books….. wish i could find them

Good thing Megaman went after Metalman first or this would have been a short story. Don’t you think Dr. Light should have told Megaman that the metal blades are the only thing that can hurt the other robots before he went into battle? I read the Ninja Gaiden novel when I was about 10 years old. I don’t remember much about it but I remember loving it. I’d like to see you read that one real soon.
November 24, 2010 at 4:42 pm
November 30, 2010 at 5:24 pm
James man, I love you but so far this blows. I love books so it isn’t that. This seems to totally lack your personality, which is why YOU ARE THE MAN. I guess far as variety goes it adds a bit but… Nostalgia? Yes. Entertainment? NOOOOOO. Keep to your views and stay true. Write your own, though it would probably suck as much at least their will be swears and afew rollong rocks. Salut Brother
December 15, 2010 at 7:06 am
I TOTALLY HAVE THIS BOOK!
I also read the Blaster Master and Ninja Gaiden books, even though at that time i had played neither game other than Mega Man 2. I really liked the Blaster Master book, but thought the Ninja Gaiden one was boring.
But i loved the Mega Man 2 book, and i bought it at the “book fair” held in my elementary school’s library – do they even do that anymore?
January 12, 2011 at 10:25 pm
I can paraphrase the entire first chapter of Worlds of Power Ninja Gaiden:
Master: Ryu, you are now a ninja.
The first chapter was basically this, it was only one page.
January 12, 2011 at 10:27 pm
Is this canon?
April 29, 2011 at 3:25 am
lol i made these vids into just audio and stuck u on my ipod ! take tht Kindle !
May 7, 2011 at 4:23 pm
July 23, 2011 at 3:42 pm
Read them all, Record them and sell em on Itunes. I’d buy em to support ya’ll, and I wouldn’t mind hearing those stories.
July 31, 2011 at 12:58 am
Milk and cookies!? How about beer and cigarettes!!!
September 3, 2011 at 3:40 am
What about Roll? I hate books that Sausage fests.
I find the making Megaman feel pain like a Human thing rather lame.
September 10, 2011 at 12:00 pm
This was something different from the rest of the videos, personally I’d like another video series of worlds of power, some of those novels sounds kinda cool (a Simon’s Quest novel? nice!). I usually hear audiobooks while I’m doing design work at the office, and this was my audiobook of the day 🙂
Now commenting on the story itself, what’s up with Megaman tranforming into a human? (I have a vague recollection that there was an episode with a similar idea in the old Ruby Spears Megaman cartoon). And Dr. Light didn’t give a shit about him being a human and being able to DIE? “You just need to be extra careful” ha.
November 9, 2011 at 10:37 am
Oh god what the hell did I just watch
Actually, this is pretty cool
December 2, 2011 at 8:13 pm
Mega Man X would hate to know that hes ancestors are machines who have no purpose other than OBEYING, considering Mega Man X4 is entirely about the revolution of Robots wanting independence.

Hi karneval-fasching-kostuem-kostueme is a great site it allows you to buy all types of carnival costumes. They allow you to buy different types of carnival dresses like animal costumes of all breads and with cheap and on affordable rates.
December 23, 2011 at 8:21 pm
Megaman, im happy for you and imma let you finish, but protoman was the best battle robot of all time
January 2, 2012 at 9:48 pm

January 2, 2012 at 9:49 pm

January 3, 2012 at 4:32 am

March 2, 2012 at 8:05 pm
Sorry, I don’t have milk and cookies… but I have beer and chips, that’s why I’m out to the AVGN reviews (=
June 9, 2012 at 10:28 am

July 19, 2012 at 7:41 pm
you’re kidding, right?
I’m not watching this
September 16, 2012 at 2:58 pm
This is hands down my favorite video(s) made by you.
September 25, 2012 at 9:17 am
You’ve gotta be shitting me. I’d rather wear Magic Johnson’s condom as a hat than hear these shitty books again.
January 14, 2013 at 1:12 pm
Remember those pick a path Mario adventure books?
January 19, 2013 at 8:42 am
please make more of this, and make it available as mp3. I like listening to this when I go to sleep =)
February 5, 2013 at 4:53 pm
James, hearing the familiar tune at 00:10:50 got me wondering if Mega Man has played Atari today, and if so, what games?
May 25, 2013 at 12:46 am
Even thought Mega Man 2 is one of my favorites but I don’t think I would read that.
June 3, 2013 at 3:29 am
Damn I wish I had milk and cookies 🙁
June 19, 2013 at 5:38 am
Why are there edits?
May 2, 2014 at 11:21 pm

November 23, 2014 at 8:34 pm
wow, you read really well James. I never knew these books existed. You and Mike Always find cool things. I can’t believe I’m actually watching a video of another grown man reading a book and actually kind of enjoying it. Very cool of you James. Story is pretty interesting. Good Idea for a movie James. Didn’t even know you had this on Cinemassacre. Thanks man. I don’t know it makes me feel like a kid again someone reading a story to me. Only you james can give some one those nostalgia feelings so good. And I appreciate it a lot brother. Just makes me feel good you know? Reminds me of the good ol days. And no one does it better then you. Thanks. YOur a special guy man.
November 23, 2014 at 8:35 pm

November 23, 2014 at 8:50 pm
Well…ON TO PART 2 lol…that game tip was bullcrap…jump the tornados…lol… If you couldn’t figure that out on your own maybe you should stick to more simple games like idk kick the can, I spy, lol, the quiet game, these would be more on your level lol. GREAT tip lol…too funny.
