    I’d love to pre-order this but I’d most like to play it on the Wii-U/3DS so add 1 potential buy for when those come out 🙂

    You should release these on Playstation 4 / Vita and have Limited Run Games release a Physical version for you.

    As for payment… All I have to offer is some deer turds and dog shit from around the yard. And that itself is worth more than what’s being pandered. That should afford me at least 4 copies.

    Hey Nerd and Nerd lovers,

    I’m going to be brutally honest. This game is seemingly pandering to AVGN viewers and treating us like we’re idiots. Naturally we expect to be pandered to, because we’re your audience, and you like to throw us bones and little hidden treats. But this game is exposition on steroids. There’s no imagination to it.

    And the trailer; holy shit. We get it; he says “fuck” a lot, and it had a charming appeal in his videos, but dropping the F bomb in every marketing description line is just ridiculous. It’s so edgy, I’m sure my 14 year old nephew will be utterly shocked by it and just HAVE to get it and hide it from mommy and daddy because there’s no way they could handle this level of edge.

    The references to recurring gags and other AVGN series tropes and memes is something one would expect, but blatantly pointing it out is as bad as any exposition-rich movie that everyone pokes fun at. We get it, the part in the ninja turtles NES game where you can just walk over a hole in the floor, was a source of great consternation. So let’s put the same bullshit that The Nerd was tormented with in a new game, because we’re only advertising it to people who slavishly watch his content anyway.

    Listen, Nerd, I love you. I’m not a big video game player although I loved playing NES, SNES, Genesis and N64 as a child and this is why your video strikes resonance with me. But getting on your knees to blow some video game developer who decided to share some of the wad of cash they make by shitting all over your name, method of comedy and style and push it on your adoring and loyal fans is beyond sell-out. It’s patronizing and insulting. The sequel, which you’re always apt to point out in any case is usually garbage and not near on the same level as the original, seems to be true in the case of AVGN II. Why wouldn’t it? After all, pointing out sequels suck is something the Nerd did ,so it must be in the video game.

    In the AVGN games we’re basically playing a lazy uninventive man’s idea of the Nerd. That sucked enough. But did this unimaginative team have to crank the pandering and shit level up to 11?

    There’s my peace. Now everyone jump all over me thinking you’re defending the Nerd when I indeed attacked the lazy, dry-humored and Asperger suffering game developers.

    – Someone who loves the Nerd, honest.

      I respectfully disagree. Also, you used the wrong piece

      “I’m not a big video game player”

      That is your problem right there. May I suggest a different medium?

    Shout out to the Japanese signs saying “Fuck You”, “Angry Nerd”, etc.

    MIKE you need to do Abobo’s Big Adventure for James & Mike Mondays!! http://abobosbigadventure.com/fullgame.php – it takes about an hour to do the whole game. Split it into 3 episodes!! There is a link to a Windows and Mac version download on the page.

    Why not PS4 and Xbox One?

    Loved AVGNA but PLEASE CONSIDER allowing players to turn off all of these horrible image effects. There’s nothing worse than sprite art with horrible image effects and cheap transparent overlays to “simulate” lighting.
