March 3, 2011 at 12:15 am
100th episode just in time for my birthday, win
And so, a milestone is reached. Happy (or perhaps in your case UNhappy) 100th episode!!
March 3, 2011 at 12:16 am
And may there be a hundred more.
March 3, 2011 at 12:17 am
Keep up the good work James. You are an inspiration to so many people and you deserve to have as much fame as you do.
Before I even watch it I just want to say how happy I am that its ROB and not ET. Of course if there’s an ET cameo I’ll feel dumb. Time to go watch it then…
March 3, 2011 at 12:19 am
Happy 100th video!!!!!!!

March 3, 2011 at 12:27 am
Nice work James!
Greatest episode yet. Your hard work paid off. I hope the controllers are okay!
that was so awesome! great job James! that was officially the most epic episode of the AVGN ever!
March 3, 2011 at 12:28 am
Congrats on 6 years and 100 episodes man. I hope you continue to torture yourself with this doo doo diarrhea bullshit for our entertainment for many more years to come. I lost my bet on E.T., But the fuckin’ gyro part had me pissin’ myself, so all is well.
March 3, 2011 at 12:29 am
This just made my day. Thank you so much for continuing to give your fans your best. You truly are a diamond in the rough when it comes to the internet. Congrats on 100!
March 3, 2011 at 12:30 am
Congratulations! Really nice and epic work.
March 3, 2011 at 12:33 am
Nice one nerd! Looking back over the years of shitty games, and finally battling out with the Robot himself. I guess this is technically a sequel to the NES Accesories episode then?
Thanks, guys. I was hoping you’d get around to ROB. : )
March 3, 2011 at 12:34 am
Fucking epic episode James.
And an equally epic title card Mike.
March 3, 2011 at 12:35 am
Excellent job guys, most epic episode you’ve made yet, it’s just pure awesome. AVGN, FUCK YEAH!
March 3, 2011 at 12:36 am
Thanks for so wonderful episode James!
It was incredible, just the right #100 episode.
I really enjoy the drama on this one. Thank you very much, for so many years of game reviews and more!, thanks!
March 3, 2011 at 12:37 am
The only thing missing was James shouting, “Heart!” for the Super Scope 6 killing blow. =P
Keep up the awesome work!
This was amazing!! I’ve been watching AVGN for a few years now, and they’ve been making me laugh ever since. I had to register just to comment on this one. Hope you had as much fun making this as it was to watch!
March 3, 2011 at 12:39 am
oh shit, and by the way, I got the sense throughout this that it’s a bit of a premonition of what to expect from the AVGN movie…and if that’s the case, it definitely gets me hyped. I was a bit skeptical if this 10-20 minute show could translate into a full-length feature film, but after watching this episode I really feel psyched to see what kind of crazy shit you’ve got up your sleeve for the movie. This is kind of reminiscent of the Mr. Bucket video, and really shows that you’re on top of your shit in a cinematic sense lately.
Awesome, I think, says it all!
March 3, 2011 at 12:40 am
i registered just to leave a comment. You rock James, and HAPPY 100!
And people say toy story 3 is emotional?
Shit’s getting real here in the land of AVGN.
March 3, 2011 at 12:41 am
another classic piece from the nerd. wow..just wow.
March 3, 2011 at 12:42 am
Woah that was AWESOME!!!!! You definitely went all out for your 100th episode and it shows!!! Congratulations!!!!! You far succeeded my expectations!!! The flashback scene was perfect–the whole video was amazing. Thank you so much for all the great years of the Nerd–here’s to many more!
March 3, 2011 at 12:43 am
Great episode. Truly captured the heart of the Nerd, and how bad games create variety. Shows how the Nerd, despite hating all the bad games, loves them at the same time.
We can’t live without shitty games.
Hooray for shitty games!
March 3, 2011 at 12:44 am
Great work James…Love it…Keep up the good work..My brother and i are working on a website of our own .It will have skits and short animations of our design.The site is still under construction but here is a link if anybody wants to view one of the animations. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRwg3ZtDVCY
March 3, 2011 at 12:47 am
Oh, and as a fellow filmmaker, I have to say great job with the whole fight scene. Not just with the special effects (we all know that special effects don’t make a movie) but with the incredible sense of pacing that made the action scenes epic and intense, and the temporary “death” of the Nerd and the subsequent flashbacks felt unexpectedly emotional (definitely an awesome first for your NERD videos). Also the camera angles really emphasized what you were going for, especially that awesome long Zoom over the Nerd’s body. Let me know if you guys need any help with the Nerd movie: barring my schedule and other things I’d love to help in some way!
March 3, 2011 at 12:48 am
That was a great 100th episode,nice fucking work James.
James awesome episode congrats on number 100. Very impressive episode =)
March 3, 2011 at 12:50 am
I have two YouTube bookmark folders. One for all the video creators I love (AVGN, Brentalfloss, NathanJBarnatt (Talking Classics), InecomCompany (Classic Game Room), ClanOfTheGrayWolf (Amazing, youtube..)), etc.
I also have another one that is JUST stuff that is updated often like InecomCompany where he makes at least a video a day.
I ACCIDENTALLY opened the one with AVGN. This month and last month I was REALLY caught off guard with new episodes. It used to be that I knew that .. around the first thursday or friday the new episode would be up but for some reason I keep thinking it’s we are half way through the current month, not at the beginning of a new one, so I only happen to check on chance.
But it’s a good thing. Otherwise, I used to freak out checking every day anticipating and waiting for the new episode. It’s much better to accidentally land on it and be all “YYYYYYEESTHHHH.”
But .. man, Episode 100. I’m afraid to read any channel comments because they tend to make me sad before I watch the episode these days. While there are a BUNCH of amazing shows these days (see above for just a few), that James certainly helped gain footage tremendously, for some reason.. Cinemassacre shows always hit me in a way that others don’t.
Anyway, Congrats on Episode 100 James! I honestly can’t believe this -> 2004-2011.. .. wow.
March 3, 2011 at 12:54 am
I was actually a kid when this came out and I remember the robot very well. Every thing you said nailed it, its exactly like that unfortunatly but when I was a kid it still seemed awesome and new having a robot play games with you,. This has to be the most epic Nerd video yet, you have truley outdid yourself with this one. I am speechless.
March 3, 2011 at 12:55 am
This was friggen epic, awesome job, James. Keep doing what you do, your vids are one of the only things that keep me going through the month.
March 3, 2011 at 12:56 am
Fantastic episode, had me rolling! Great special fx! During the end battle I was waiting for someone to knock over a pagoda;P I’m psyched to see you guys finally went widescreen too. Really gave it that cinematic feel. Congrats on 100 episodes and here’s to many more!
March 3, 2011 at 12:57 am
Absolutely fantastic job James! You wen’t all out and really made a perfect 100th episode. I loved how it was never even addressed in actual words, just the epic scope of it made it so perfect.
He makes him a gyro sandwich. How funny.
Congrats on episode 100.
March 3, 2011 at 1:00 am
I was having lots of problems with Firefox and Flash today, so the only way I could watch the new Nerd is by downloading Opera. Firefox got Firefux’d and hopefully by tomorrow it will be Firefix’d.
The pen totally hit Fester’s Quest, though, not Gyromite. Now that I’ve pointed this out, you will have to do a revisit of that one!
Wow… I must say James, that was the best episode you’ve ever done. Using ROB as a villain was genius, and the cheezy special effects and climactic plot pulled the idea off brilliantly. Is this the end of AVGN? You got real talent man, lets see some bigger projects!
March 3, 2011 at 1:02 am
I have been waiting for Rob the robot since he peeked from behind you in the NES accessories review. This was an awesome episode. Thank you James for all the laughs over the years.
March 3, 2011 at 1:04 am
The most anticipating video, is a masterpiece.
The story is well written and it wasent predictable. The effects was incredable and the blood in your face made me laugh it was silly looking. And since the first episode you have become somewhat of a “good b-actor”.
Thank you for all good laughs. And all i hope is that you continue and evolve. You are a true internet hero for all of us.
March 3, 2011 at 1:06 am
I call my IRL friend named Mike MotherFucker Mike, you’re such a boss
March 3, 2011 at 1:09 am
Since my comment on GameTrailers will probably never be seen, I’ll re-iterate here, but I’ll just write it better (and I’ll say more too…).
I’m very slightly disappointed here, since you went, like every other reviewer who reviewed R.O.B, with the “R.O.B is evil” angle, BUT I’m glad that you took a more serious approach with the idea, it wasn’t JUST for comedic effect. The few jokes that were thrown in were interesting (I never thought you’d go and actually make a gyro… I’m happy to see that you can still be funny in these videos without having to talk about animal shit), and I really like the message you’re trying to convey here… Very nice stuff.
One thing for sure, I’m happy you didn’t go for reviewing E.T… I’m not sure the episode could have been really interesting, since there’s really not that much to talk about with that game. What would be interesting however, rather than just talking about E.T in one episode, would be an episode dedicated to the video game crash of 1983, but concentrating on the various games and other elements that caused it…. Think about it More than enough to get “Angry Nerd” about in there.
Also, I do agree with you that Mario is the hero that saved the industry… but it would be very wrong to completely discredit R.O.B as having a part in saving it. He was, after all, the key that enabled to NES to be sold at retail, without him the NES wouldn’t have found its way to stores so fast and the gaming industry would have stayed dead in America for maybe a few more years. But I think you know that already, the whole Mario thing in the video was more for dramatic effect… I think.
Oh, and cool title card Mike, I love the idea.
March 3, 2011 at 1:11 am
Best episode yet! Great work!
Now for a question… Do you REALLY own that many copies of Gyromite and Stack-up? and if so, how much did they cost you?
March 3, 2011 at 1:16 am
Entertaining episode, well put together. Sick title card. AVGN goes hard.
March 3, 2011 at 1:17 am
Fucking Epic. So Awesome!! Thankyou James and Mike. I hope for many more AVGN to come. SO much better then half the shit on TV
Oh man, that was fucking incredible James. So epic. That shit with the gyro. Oh my God I had to pause the video to laugh for about five minutes on that shit man. Genius. Congratulations on AVGN 100 man, I love your work. The absolute awesomeness of this video makes the wait for #101 even harder.
March 3, 2011 at 1:18 am
Haha Good one Nerd!
Good way to use the crappy merchandise to destroy the foul Robo Rob!
Another good Video as usual!
HOLY SHIT, THATS AWSOME!!! Man, i’d really be pissed if some robot came to my room and terminated every video game in the world
(except for those two) before my very own eyes.
March 3, 2011 at 1:19 am
Dude, Congratulations on the Episode 100, I’ve been following you since Day 1 .
Keep doing the next 100 episodes, as there are still hundreds of shitty games to review, Very Fun episode, tittlecard omg
March 3, 2011 at 1:20 am
ps. Why are the passwords so long to Cinemassacre.com, i mean you hated it yourself so put it on your homepage? Where you feeling nostalgic?
Don’t go to the dark side…
March 3, 2011 at 1:23 am
THAT WAS FUCKING AWSOME! i registered because of that awsome video.The video had so much special effects, i was amazed. did you play off screen?
March 3, 2011 at 1:27 am
Epic episode! It was just the perfect 100th video! I loved everything, the music composed by John Jennings Boyd and Lachlan Barclay was perfect, the editing of the video, the title card by motherfucker Mike as usually perfect, the NES music (Super Metroid and Blaster Master did it for me), the drama, everything was perfect. Congratulations for the 100th video. Hope to see more AVGN soon! Good job James.
March 3, 2011 at 1:31 am
That belw my mind so hard i can’t spell correctly anymoer
great job love the giant monster movie, terminator salute.top notch as always James keep up the great work.
Way to exceed the high expectations we all had for number 100. Impressive on all fronts! I love your episodes where you feature a villain. ROB is up there with the Glitch Gremlin and Bugs!
March 3, 2011 at 1:32 am
Cutting up two NES controllers to use at once was genius. I remember some tetris modes where one player would move left and right and the other would flip the blocks.
The music at the end while embracing the NES games and the last glance at the Castlevania box… wow, was extremely moving. Even the long shot of AVGN lying down seemingly ‘dead’ before the black and white flashbacks… all moods/scenarios I’d LOVE to see in the AVGN movie.
Even though the entire situation may be comedic it’s still engaging to just go with it and see AVGN almost die and then summon the strength to fight back and win for his love (?) of playing terrible games. I was pulled in like any good movie would keep me interested until the end.
Here’s to 100 more episodes!
great episode dude!
March 3, 2011 at 1:33 am
That was the epic of epicnisity of epicness Ive ever seen it tis truly the best AVGN every of all time.. Ever!!
March 3, 2011 at 1:34 am
My wish came true!
I wonder though if James owns so many Gyromite- and Stack-up-games. It’s not impossible ^^
Best of luck to your future projects!
March 3, 2011 at 1:36 am
Excellant work james and congrats on your 100 avgn. ive been watching your show since the beginning and i gotta say thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to your fans,
March 3, 2011 at 1:37 am
I have watched you since 08 and I gotta say, this is more like it man… I really hope you start pumpin out at least 2-3 a month again, we all really love these.
March 3, 2011 at 1:38 am
People who want to know what makes AVGN stick out from the other video game reviewers: this. Great job as always James, feel free to o a bottle of champagne.
March 3, 2011 at 1:39 am
@peteman27 You mean Rolling Rock
Awesome episode! congrats on the 100th episode and…yay widescreen!
March 3, 2011 at 1:40 am
Several years ago, i went to a game store in Omaha and they had a ROB converted into one of those take a penny leave a penny trays. I thought it was pretty funny.
March 3, 2011 at 1:41 am
Fuckin’ brilliant. Keep it up James, you mother fuckers never disappoint. By the way, whoever was in charge of making it look like R.O.B. beat the shit out of you and broke your nose did an amazing job. The blood on your face and the bruises look very realistic. Also, good job with the game controllers, Ed Wood would be proud.
March 3, 2011 at 1:44 am
absolutely awesome episode! Haven’t seen one with this level of special effects in a long time. I thought this was the end of the nerd for a bit there. That was intentional wasn’t it?
March 3, 2011 at 1:47 am
Great episode… missed opportunity though to not say “fire!” with the LaserScope.
rob the robot is a peace of crap but it is also an expensive collectors item and vary rare. So it’s shit plated in gold.
March 3, 2011 at 1:49 am
Awesome episode guys! Funny and exciting with great special effects!
March 3, 2011 at 1:51 am
I think, that was the greatest battle featuring anything Nintendo I’ve seen in my whole entire life! I really thought The Nerd was going to die. Can’t wait for the next episode. And, I noticed something was different in the video, can anyone help me out to what it was?
The climax almost made me tear up, damn!! This is one of the best AVGN videos. The anger was spot on, and the comedy was definitely there. I hope you guys don’t mind checking out my celebration video; thanks!!
March 3, 2011 at 1:52 am
Sorry for another comment, but the artwork for the episode is fantastic! Mike did a great job on it, one of the greatest I think.
March 3, 2011 at 1:53 am
Awesome episode! Great work as usual.
March 3, 2011 at 1:56 am
I can’t believe this got released on my 21st Birthday awesome Episode, hopefully we don’t have to wait until episode 200 for ET lol
March 3, 2011 at 2:02 am
That was fucking amazing. I loved it. Here’s to 100 more! ^_^
March 3, 2011 at 2:04 am
That was amazing.
March 3, 2011 at 2:08 am
YES!!! Worthy of Ep #100!!!
Best episode in months, James!
I loved it! Keep doing stuff we all remember!
So much better than the obscure stuff…
March 3, 2011 at 2:10 am
That was fucking amazing. One of your best videos ever. I’m totally speechless now.
March 3, 2011 at 2:11 am
Did have a question though…what was the visor shown in the beginning, immediately after the Virtual Boy? Never seen it before.
March 3, 2011 at 2:16 am
Fucking amazing! I’ve been watching since late 2008, when I stumbled upon your Friday the 13th review while looking up something for the remake. Just gotta say you’re the best damn thing on the net. Congratulations on the 100th episode!!! Absolutely awesome in every way, James! Can’t wait for the next one!
hehe told you guys he would do R.O.B.
March 3, 2011 at 2:17 am
Amazing episode! You guys rock!
March 3, 2011 at 2:20 am
@Jacob – I think what’s different about the video is the production of it. From the lighting to the color correction, etc. Then again he could be using a new camera it looks more crisp and HDish.
and James by far one of the best pieces you have done. I always loved Legend of the Blue Hole and Mr. Bucket. I hoped if you did a ROB video it would end up like those videos as in a horror type story and low and behold here it is.
Fantastic work! My hat is off to you!
March 3, 2011 at 2:22 am
The episode was great. I just gotta ask though, who was “Mrs.” in your special thanks?
Gee is good to see you are back to your former self!
WELCOME BACK NERD!
As long as the nerd lives here and James in the real world everything is fine!
March 3, 2011 at 2:24 am
Amazing episode! Great work James!!
Rob64 James is married so guess who she is?
March 3, 2011 at 2:25 am
The widescreen was awesome! 16:9 FTW!
March 3, 2011 at 2:30 am
i do not have thumbs….you moron LOL
‘grats on the 100th vid. So what’s gonna come for the 10 year mark?
March 3, 2011 at 2:33 am
i had one at home.
This one will be great
March 3, 2011 at 2:34 am
lol I did not see that coming. It was sooner or later that the NERD fought something Godzilla style!
Also glad to see you didn’t do E.T. It’s been discussed to death, there’s not much to say content wise and everyone’s expectations are probably unreasonable at this point.
Also, I would love to see a NeoGeo or Turbo Graphix 16 recap similar to your Jaguar and CD-I videos or MegaMan marathon similar to the Castlevania games. These action episodes are fun, but I find myself watching the historically oriented ones repeatedly, like the Zelda Timeline and most recent Star Wars episode. Also, I never got a chance to place NeoGeo (like many kids) due to its outrageous price and only remember Keith Courage and Bonk from the TG16, so it’d be fun to see what those systems were all about.
Thanks and keep up the great work James and Mike!
March 3, 2011 at 2:38 am
AWesome! Congrats on 100 episodes. Here’s to 100 more! Cheers, T
HOLY CRAP! Just… just… WOW! I have no words! That was…. awesome! Quite possibly one of, if not the best AVGN’s yet! How did you do those special effects with ROB and the controllers? Man… maybe I don’t want to know how!
The reviews of the games themselves were hilarious. Especially since you went to the trouble to actually set up ROB and so we actually get to see how he works with the games! I have to say, it’s pretty cool, but I don’t know if it’s really worth all the trouble and money. Not to mention… your home made Gyromite controller was just funny and great at the same time!
I’m blown away! This 100th episode was great in the comedy, review, effects… everything department! As a long time fan who has watched you since the Nintendo Nerd days, and appreciates your other work as well, I have to say you did not disappoint here! GREAT JOB, MR. ROLFE!
March 3, 2011 at 2:39 am
I just loved this episode, but I do have to questions.
1.Did you purposely put this up during Carnivale?
2. Who is “Mrs.” during the credits?
March 3, 2011 at 2:42 am
This was beautiful.
March 3, 2011 at 2:44 am
Been a fan for years. Just registered now to say fantastic job. Great episode. Keep it coming man
Brilliant just Brilliant James amazin’ effort and amazin’ comedy
March 3, 2011 at 2:46 am
OMG! That episode is so fucking unbelievably awesome. It’s like I just crapped my pants with awesomeness! Thanks, James, for investing so much effort.
Excellent 100th episode. Loved Rob’s cool robotic voice.
I was So happy to see the finally see The Nintendo Battle Gear make an epic comeback. Especially loved how you wore the U-Force as a lower region armor.
March 3, 2011 at 2:55 am
Great stuff I have been enjoying your videos for a long time.. I am going to make a donation right now!
March 3, 2011 at 3:00 am
Great work James, this was really something special! The title card rocked too Mike!
March 3, 2011 at 3:04 am
Wow James… THIS is the greatest achievement of mankind since the wireless controller! Congratulations to this episode. I think its the best you’ve ever done including the non-AVGN stuff.
March 3, 2011 at 3:06 am
nothing short of an AMAZING 100th episode. thanks so much james!
March 3, 2011 at 3:12 am
Thank you James!!!!, 100th episode was great, funny, and some parts sad, haha, Congratulations!! =)
March 3, 2011 at 3:13 am
This has got to be one of my top favourite episodes EVER. Great job, James! Thank you for making it this far!! …And thank you for saving the shitty games from R.O.B.!!
March 3, 2011 at 3:14 am
Mike, your title cards ROCK!!!!!!!!!
March 3, 2011 at 3:19 am
Awesome as always!!! Greetings from a Greek fan!! (Remind me to send you a real gyros someday.)
