    Everybody seems to be going through the past threads to grab a first comment on the new site, so I’ll stake my claim under Rambo 😀

    In Life Line (PS2) the main character ask the operator (you) if you want to help her during the game. If you tell her three times (or maybe four) no, she just shoots the camera and walks away, it’s game over 🙂

    What the heck happened to him at the end of the video?

  • August 28, 2010 at 10:30 pm

    @ Gabraham
    He turned retarded. lol

    “I feel like I picked on a retard or something. Like, what are you, retarded? Oh… I’m sorry.” I repeated that line earlier today and couldn’t remember which AVGN it was from. By pure luck, I coincidentally clicked on this one out of his 90 -something vids.

    Just like the Rocky films, I haven’t seen much of the Rambo movies.

    Rambo actually reminds me of a buffed-up Native American.

    3:45- Don’t forget that he also pronounces the word “law” incorrectly. =)

    8:08- If this game was gonna stay true to the film, why didn’t they have Rambo fake-kill Murdock? Why have him turn into a frackin’ frog!? But to tell you the truth, I still find this amusing.

    In speaking of sequel titles, They called the 7th Saw film “Saw 3D.” Yes, I know that the film is in 3D, but future generations might confuse it with the 3rd film before they even see it.

    ” I feel like I just insulted a retard or somethin’. Whatta you retarded? Oh, you are? I’m sorry.”

    One of my favorite nerd moments haha.

    Rambo: traditionally associated with crappy movie tie-ins. Well, what did anyone expect.

    I just noticed something. You deleted the scenes you used from the Rambo movies from this review… Why?

      probably copywright

  • February 15, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    I kinda like the music in the NES game…
    Don’t hate me for that…

    Maybe next they’re going to make a sequel called Rambo II: First Blood Part 3.

    So, I have been rewatching all the videos and I have to say, the light gun doesnt work on an lcd tv. I assume James knew that, and that other people do by now, but if not, now you do.

    I had the same problem with duck hunt a few years back on a tv similar to the one he was using. That damn dog pissed me off always laughing at me and I was like, I am shooting these fucking ducks, what the hell?

    • christianhberg

      January 15, 2012 at 9:18 am

      That is not a lcd tv though

    • January 15, 2012 at 1:14 pm

      @cat0048 I Know I had a tv like that and boom 3 weeks later we hate that tv(We mean somepeople) I gave mine to my aunt for her birthday she liked it

    If you have one why wouldn’t you use a grenade to kill a tiger that is trying to kill you.

    • Oliver

      January 18, 2012 at 5:45 am

      @Killsprebut he means that it doesn´t make sense killing animals anyway and it´s fucked up to throw grenades at tigers since he´s got a gun!

      • FanFlurre

        January 21, 2012 at 3:38 pm

        @[email protected] I disagree. I believe he means that killing an animal with a grenade is a bit excessive. To quote The Nerd Himself: “Kinda like robbing a bank with an atom bomb!”

    Man i’ve seen every episode so many times but I can’t stop watching.

    Should have a warning in the beginning of the video: please enjoy responsibly and may be habit forming.

    That last outburst of obscure sounds and tics… I just love it!!!

    In case anyone was wondering…the kanji (Chinese character) Rambo shoots at Murdock is the character that is part of  “get angry” or “anger/rage”. So maybe he is pissed he has to wear spandex and use a knife? 🙂 Great vid all around.

    Why are there scissors in your pocket? I almost had a heart attack when you jumped out of your chair fearing that you’d impale yourself!

    WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT???? Rambo??? What’s wrong with calling it rambo 4??? Seriously! I want to know what the director was thinking??? LIKE WTF???

  • Schumalice

    April 30, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    And there’s more to add to the confusion. In France, “First Blood” was entitled “Rambo”. Then came “Rambo 2” & “Rambo 3”. There’s at least something we French people couldn’t be criticized about!!
    When it came to the 4th movie, they were fucked, because they couldn’t call it “Rambo” like in the US, since it was already the title to the 1st movie. They could’ve simply gone ahead and called it “Rambo 4”. But no, that would’ve been too obvious!! So they called it… “JOHN RAMBO”!!!!
    So James, your 1st prediction was somewhat right!!

    I love at 8:20 when the music gets louder, showing how he tried not to lose his temper, but just gets angry suddenly

    This was my first time seeing this review since I’ve seen this movie, so now I really know how much of a disappointment it really was.

    I laugh at the freak out at the end every time.

  • mansonsick

    That Chinese letter “怒” means anger or rage.

  • December 5, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Dude you think that password system is bad? Ys I & II for the Turbo Grafx CD and Ys III has the worst password system I’ve ever seen. You have the option to save to the memory or use the password, and trust me, you don’t even want to look at the password man…

  • March 11, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Its funny that you mention Ikari Warriors…. considering the new AVGN.. lol

  • June 16, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    I know Pack in Video made this game, but Acclaim Entertainment is the Acclaim of shitty games based on movies.
    You should do a review of every Turok game from Acclaim.

  • September 7, 2013 at 8:52 pm

    God, this game looks sooooo boring! They did the impossible and made RAMBO boring!

    • Grandmasterp

      March 16, 2015 at 5:53 pm

      Yeah! How the hell did they fuck up Rambo?

  • MelancholyRose

    September 12, 2013 at 8:34 am

    I only just recently saw the Rambo movies, and only then did I TRULY understand how the movies and game were worlds apart. I mean, I didn’t expect Rambo to go around killing rats and snakes and shit in the movies, but I at least expected the game and movies to have at least a little in common. I guess the headband counts…

  • November 27, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    Well I think that the nerd just died.

  • April 22, 2014 at 6:08 am

    Rambo 3 for the Genesis is pretty fun.

  • fcabanski

    October 20, 2014 at 12:17 am

    Where does this game fit into the Zelda time line? Is Ramno a descendant of Link? Is flooded Hyrule the flooded Earth in the Noah story?

    I’ve seen all these videos tons of times and never noticed the can of ‘Fish assholes’ at 8:24 before! Very nice!
