    Would trade anything to be on E3. Did anyone recognize you?

    Can’t wait for Sonic 4 & Castlevania Lord of Shadows. Hopefully sometime into the game it doesn’t turn into Simon’s Quest

    Those games look AMAZING! These are even better than yesterday’s selections, not that I didn’t like Skyward Sword or Epic Yarn.

    Mortal Kombat looks like the ideal game you would play at a party. The graphics on Sonic the Hedgehog 4 look gorgeous. Castlevania looks like tons of fun. And Epic Mickey has one of the most original concepts in video games I have seen in awhile.

    Nevertheless, I hope James DOES find some shitty games. Man, it must be a blast over there. That place looks like every kid’s dream.

    You seem angrier in this than you did in Action 52 and it pays off!

    Reviewing the old episodes I realize that you were so hilarious not because the games were bad, but because YOU personally hated them SO much.

    Action 52 is hated by EVERYONE else but like, you never experienced it when young so you didn’t have the TOTAL hatred of it.

    You gotta keep reviewing the shit YOU hate. h

    I agree that the console Castlevania doesn’t seem to resemble “Castlevania” at all, but seems to be more of a generic action adventure game with the name attached. Of course, it’ll surely be awesome and have more references to the series itself (hoping lots of music is in the final product).

    The new Mortal Kombat seems to be a legitimate return to classic Mortal Kombat which can only be good news.

    This year does seem to be a heavy nostalgia trip, but that’s probably way better than being too risky with completely new franchises.

    Really hope you got to try out the 3DS, that’s easily the highlight of E3, and a no brainer it’ll be a bigger success than DS or Wii were.

    LOL at all the people who looked at him when he was like “SHUT THE FUCK UP”

  • Srceodizno

    Wow I thought I was going to piss my self when James screamed “Shut The Fuck Up!”. But I also love how the guy right behind him sort of turned his head right after. I love to hear that there is a new Mortal Kombat game comming out but I still personally think that Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance was the goriest of them all but I still need to play this new one and go back and play Deadly Alliance as well. Great news cast James even though you’ll be deaf in a week. 🙂

    Lmfao hilarious and entertaining, even when you’re totally unscripted.

    The best part was when you turned around and yelled “SHUT THE FUCK UP!” and that one guy behind u just turns and seems to be like “oh, it’s just the Nerd” and then goes back to what he was doing.

  • darkknightdetec

    June 17, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Also, see if you can check out the new Goldeneye!!!

  • June 17, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    HAHA, that was hilarious when you yelled STFU. You should have done that at every booth. Anyway, its nice to see you’re having fun, I’d love to go to E3…say, how does someone of you’re calibur get accepted into there, I mean, I know you review games but how would you send in an example of you’re contribution or proof? Unless they just invited you.

    This is great. One thing though…new 3D Castlevania good? I haven’t played the thing, but I hear you just walk around pressing two buttons the entire time..for better or for worse. Contra on the other hand, that looks badass. This is the first I’ve heard of it. Also the new Mortal Kombat…looks badass…and Sonic…looks badass. This is good stuff! Waiting for day 3!

  • June 17, 2010 at 5:17 pm

    That was fucking sweet, James. Sorry you almost got deffened by that one booth. Sonic looked frickin’ awesome! I liked the Mickey Mouse game’s look too. The Batman looked like shit and Castlevania looked too much like a typical modern game. Mortal Kombat looked interesting to say the least. Great work James. You looked more relaxed and like you were being yourself. Keep up the great work and can’t wait to see more from E3!

    Doesn’t play. You get a commercial and then nothing, or a loop of the same commercial. You should talk to your host.

    The second day wasn’t that bad though as being the longest day of the three I had to make sure to get in as much of the smaller titles out there a chance to play. Very good episode and have to agree that stupid booth was too damn loud… as much of E3 was.

    You should look at Portal 2!!!!!

    very nice videos this time from E3 (i wouldn’t like to say it but these videos are a little better than your last episodes) and the hd graphics is so awesome, i’d like to see the regular videos in hd too.

    castlevania harmony of despair is coming out soon via xbox live, i’m so excited about it and lords of shaddow and i think a castlevania is coming out for the 3ds in the future too gooooo konami

  • June 18, 2010 at 6:27 am

    Yea, seems like everything has the adjective “epic” these days…
    I hear “epic fail” like 10 times a day because one of my collegues thinks that every single fault is an “epic fail”… what a failure ^^

    Nice to see some HD videos from you.

  • blogjob

    June 18, 2010 at 12:02 pm

    Thanks for the video!
    And I´m glad to see, that the game-producers recognize, that good games don´t have to be in 3-D. Side-scrollers with better graphics can be lot more fun than crappy 3D games.

    To say it clearly: I WANT A NEW 2-D-METROID, are you listening, Nintendo?
    F*** your shitty 3D-Metroid, that games have nothing to do with the classic!!!

    I saw you at E3, but you were taping something with Craig (I think, couldn’t see very well) at the Epic Mickey booth at the time. I had an appointment I had to run to in West Hall, so I didn’t get to stick around to say hi, so I’ll just say “hi” here.

  • VideoGameDork

    it was funny at the konami booth with the Def Jam plaing too loud. Shut the fuck up! Lol. Great work with video.

  • Squall85

    June 18, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    Yeah, they went back to the roots: Need for Speed, Mortal Kombat (as I heard), Sonic, etc… I’m really happy with the NFS is going back to the roots because it got sidetracked from what I liked about it (NFS3-Hot Pursuit). After the cliché words in the titles like resurrection, salvation, they camu up with epic 🙂 This will be the next stuff. Epic Zelda, Metal Gear Epic and so on…

  • Squall85

    June 18, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    I’d love to see how you feel about the new Castlevania games! Do a review-do a review-do a review about them too!!! 🙂

  • June 18, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    Neat shit! Lot u’back to the basics. Like what I see. Thanks for the update Nerdman.

    Your videos rock dude …. I loved when you told everyone to shut the fuck up, cracked me up. Lucky duck getting to go to E3 … but I guess you are Mr. James Rolfe after all and people want you there. Thanks for the insight into something I wish I could’ve went to! (p.s thank god they finally went classic for Sonic … he deserves better than what he’s had)

  • June 20, 2010 at 3:12 am

    Fuck that Def Jam game… It was so damn loud I didnt even want to try out the Contra game near that booth… I just went to the other wing it was so fuckin bad. Glad I wasn’t the only one that noticed =P

    I’m so glad they’ve made a side scrolling SONIC. I’ll definitely check that one out.
