    you’re starting to look a lot older, also i’m surprised more people didn’t recognize you walking through. Perhaps you just cut most of that shit out.

  • January 25, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    I bet that guy who had you sign all that shit has it up on eBay as we speak, lol!

    One quick question. Was that your wife behind you at the beginning of the video?

    Hi James, i must say that even in Czech republic do you have at least one big fan – me :-D. It is pity that Mega-fest is 8000 km from Brno so it is impossible to go there.

    Anyway, i wanted to ask if it is possible that your registration form cant send email to my Czech email [email protected], no notification came to this email. So i was forced to use my second gmail account.

    we need nothing more 🙂

    X-Men for the arcade is my favorite arcade game. Collossas fucked everything up. eheh eh eh ehX-Men. Seeing arcade cabinets is one of the greatest sites this world has to offer.

  • AFX

    January 25, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    I wish all of your vids would be widescreen. =(

  • January 25, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    How come yous guys in the states get all these cool festivals?! We just have sheep shearing and cheese rolling. 🙁 No fair! 😛

  • Vinny1138

    January 25, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    I saw Linkara was on line, Did he ask you to autograph anything?

  • MeetMyMeat

    January 25, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    Man, I would kill someone to get James’ autograph, too bad I live in Europe 😛

  • bouchnimeajatezabiju

    January 25, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    MeetMyMeat> Same by me but what can you do.

  • January 25, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    What the hell was that gray thing the one guy had him signing? Looked like something that fell off a car.

  • GoldRoger

    January 25, 2011 at 4:17 pm


  • January 25, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Awesome stuff =)

  • Dr. Forrester

    January 25, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    Holy crap, this looked like a ton of fun! And Stuttering Craig and Handsome Tom were at the same convention?? That would be an interesting video (I think)

  • Ronin

    January 25, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    Love seeing stuff like this, thanks James!

  • Mountrussmore

    January 25, 2011 at 5:37 pm

    @ Twisted Speech

    Nope, but his wife is in this video. She’s the lady taking pictures at 6:16.

    Cool video, James. Wish I was there!! 🙁

    Very good. 😀

  • Schloss Ritter

    January 25, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    “Two girls, one-up” boggles my mind with multiple references.

    Man I wish they had cons like this around here.

  • Fuck RomEmKing

    January 25, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    That looks like fun.

  • January 25, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    I can’t wait for the next MagFest video of you showing First Blood with AC/DC!

  • ChetSteadman

    January 25, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    James thinks that his first Dr. Jekyll review is the worst review he’s ever done? I think it’s by far his best and funniest.

  • mickelmoe

    January 25, 2011 at 9:46 pm

    kind of strange video. James is prob busy writing his film which would be interesting to see. The video game stuff is difficult to do infront of real nerds.

  • geoneo09

    January 25, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    that shirt with the phrase, blow me, is damn funny xD

  • January 25, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    awesome music great vid

  • BlueGemini

    January 25, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Nice video! I even saw random shots from the ScrewAttack team and even saw Linkara on the line. And I love the Double Dragon sound in this vid =)

    Thank you very much for video!

  • January 25, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    Nice! I feel like I was there, thanks!

  • January 26, 2011 at 12:22 am

    Oh man I hope no one googles 2 girls… if they do they are going to be sorry. Anyway, good vids. Wish I could have been there. I’m gonna show the AVGN vids to my Girlfriend’s kids.

  • mcnerven

    January 26, 2011 at 12:55 am

    Love the double dragon music!

  • Dirtybit92

    January 26, 2011 at 1:10 am

    Wow! Looks like James had a very good time at Magfest! He seemed to like the ice cold beer game.Haha it’d be funny if he won some rolling rock! xD

  • Zelda_Boy

    January 26, 2011 at 2:36 am

    towards the end of that video, I was totally expecting it to show James punching Linkara.

  • walkingstickman

    January 26, 2011 at 3:16 am

    lol I was the one that yelled out “you got ripped off”.

    0.89 cents for that game my ass.

  • VampricYoda

    January 26, 2011 at 7:34 am

    I wish I was there but, no hotel room and by the time I got in on Saturday night. . .no badges would have been left. I can’t prereg because of the way my job is.

    Ah well!

    That video was just awesome. I can totally smell a road trip for next years magfest.

  • xdeathknightx

    January 26, 2011 at 9:16 am

    That guy with the ton of consoles and controllers and adapters was taking the piss a bit in my opinion. And like someone said before, I wonder how much of that stuff ended up on ebay to sell.
    Kudos to James for signing it all without a hitch but I would be embarassed to ask him to sign such a load of items.

    Does look like a very fun convention.

  • Bick Benedict

    January 26, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    @FRED AND Mountrussmore
    That’s his wife at 6:16? How do you know? And at 5:39–that’s Fred fucks? HAHA. I guess you had to be there to believe it. James looks like he would do anything for his fans.

  • January 26, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Hey, guys, that’s me in the background. To clarify, I am not *THE* producer of Cinemassacre – I’m a Producer in general, and I’m a newbie that helps Cinemassacre whenever they need me. Very nice to meet you all, and it was especially great to meet many of you in person at MAGFest. 🙂

  • January 26, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    That looks really cool !! It’s a shame I live in Mexico >..<.

  • January 26, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    PS: Raise you hand if you were one of the 5,000 people going, “Oooooooooaaaaaah!”

  • TomM

    January 26, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    James, I love your videos! It’s a shame I only recently make an account. Anyway, the video was awesome and I wish I was there.

  • Fredfucks

    January 26, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    THERE I AM AT 5:39 WITH THE BLUE HAT TALKING TO JAMES! really nice guy, got 3 autographs and a photo

    January 26, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    I hope it did hit you in a good way…wow there was a lot of people for you!!!
    I wasn’t there unfortunately but i love you too!

  • Liam Gauci

    January 26, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    it’s great to see you reaching out to fans like this! Shame that I’ll never get to meet you in person! Argh! Damn you geographyyyy!

  • jcollette

    In High School I made a green lantern silk screen shirt. I’m convinced that I went to high school with that guy and sold him that. The screen was old and there was a pretty ‘crappy’ section of the screen where the ink wouldn’t go through. The inside of the lantern was outlined in black and that ‘weird staining’ is so similar I’m convinced (besides, he looked like this guy I knew).

    I can’t find mine but I’ll have a confirmation from my friend’s little brother.

  • Snejku

    January 26, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Argh, too bad one lives a million miles away. This stuff looks so great.

  • venipenny

    January 26, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    hey its the guy who beat castlevania with a dance pad!! and stuttering craig!!! love it.

  • January 26, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    I’m in the White Comic style Ghostbusters Shirt during the autograph session. The kid with all that stuff is a student at the school I teach at. So cool to be in one of your vids James! ^_^

  • January 27, 2011 at 3:56 am

    How do you find out about all these events…I would love to go to something like that…I don’t know of any in my area i could attend though…guess i could look online,,,

  • Gioray

    January 27, 2011 at 9:13 am

    Sigh… I wish i could…

  • gattz

    January 27, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    MegaMan 9 is so awesome.

  • January 27, 2011 at 2:31 pm

    dude come to wizard world comic-con in philly!

  • January 27, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    Is that LINKARA at 5:19 ???

    The people of TWGTG was there too , so maybe is him. By the way, no more videos wit the guys at TGWTG ???

  • DeskLaser

    January 27, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    What is the song that starts the very beginning of the video before? I KNOW I have heard it before, but it is driving me crazy that I can’t peg it down!

  • DeskLaser

    January 27, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Ah, nevermind, figured it out, Double Dragon theme! It was seriously driving me nuts lol.

  • krazyzark

    January 28, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    that invisible Frogger game is like something I did on my old graphing calculator. I got a game called Drive (a simple driving game where you have to stay within the boundaries or die) and edited the code to do various things like make your vehicle invisible or make the boundaries invisible, etc. Wish I’d been there. The chance to meet the Nerd AND sit in for a wrestling panel with Maffew of Botchamania fame. DAMN.

  • Will Smathers

    January 28, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    The way this footage is compiled almost seems like it could fit into a documentary about “The Nerd.” Involving Ms. Yuhas in this almost makes me wonder what kind of shenanigans are being plotted.

  • Butch Bitch

    January 29, 2011 at 10:04 am

    @Will Smathers- it’s obviously something big. It’s been hinted all over the P21 podcast. I think it’s the movie. I mean the 100th episode is coming up, and the fact that James wants to work on his movie soon seems too coincidental.

  • phoenix252005

    January 29, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Dude that is so awesome! I wish I could go to one of those conventions to meet James,someday…

  • pobO

    January 31, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    hmm I want that “blow me” t-shirt.
    great stuff guys as always =)

  • SippinCoughee

    January 31, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    I dont see how James could even walk into a place like that without being gang banged by his fans…cuz all these nerdy gamers (me too) love this dude

  • SippinCoughee

    January 31, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    mAN, this is a great video loved it!!! awesome!! and i gotta Add, I LOVED The Jeckyl & Hyde AVGN!!! That shit is raw, no need for acting or crazy effects to show off that garbage!!! and i did buy a cart just cuz of AVGN!! And it does suck!!!! WOW…that shit could suck a spread off a bed!

  • killteck

    February 2, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Do you get any groupies when you do this stuff? Fucking them in your hotel room, blasting angry jizz in there faces, double teaming them with your camera man? Yeah, it’s all about getting some action.

  • Ryan Fair Rig

    February 4, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    i saw a killer instinct machine in the background, you should review that game and compare it to other fighting games like primal rage and mortal kombat

  • Ericco79

    February 14, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    1:56 “Everybody’s doing the Colossus scream!” That sounds like it should be a new dance!

  • March 30, 2011 at 8:40 am

    I really want to go to Magfest one year. It looks like an awesome time. I would probably spend the entire time gaming in the arcade room with everyone.

  • DiceGamer

    April 15, 2011 at 5:33 am

    I would so much like to be there, unfortunately i live in Europe.

  • Kazuma Kiryu

    April 26, 2011 at 10:31 am

    Yeah, i would love to go there and play some arcades and have some games and machines signed, but i live in Europe. Anyway, i love the ambient out there, so many freak gamers and great people, i could spend all day there!
    Thanks to James and Mike, this is my first post here, but been watchin since day one on that old Simon’s Quest video, i love all the site and have been a regular. I would love to see more Board James with Motherfucker Mike haha!

    Great vid, as usual James. But I gotta say… sucks.

    I had to restart the video three times. 🙁

  • Snarf101

    December 6, 2011 at 8:00 pm
