No G.I. Joe

Mike Matei / August 11th, 2009

Sorry to bring disappointing news, but there won’t be an AVGN: G.I. Joe episode. Since I’ve done X-Men, Terminator and Transformers to tie in with the latest summer movies, it may have seemed predictable. I was giving it serious consideration. The games I played were:

G.I. Joe: Cobra Strike (Atari 2600)
G.I. Joe (NES)
G.I. Joe: Atlantis Factor (NES)

They weren’t shitty enough for the Nerd, so I’m going to concentrate on other games. I pick the games which give me the most inspiration to make the best episodes. If it happens to tie in with a new movie coming out, that’s a bonus. This one, I’m letting go, so sorry noooooo G.I. Jooooooe.

I don’t have any interest to see the new movie either. The main reason I’d see it is for nostalgia, but the trailer doesn’t even remind me of G.I. Joe. If anyone’s seen it, feel free to leave comments.

    James you should watch it if you haven’t. It is a lot better than most people say it is. Hell I was way skeptical about seeing, yet in the time I have owned it, I would say that I have watched it close to 50 times and I still love it. I can’t wait for the second one to come out next year. Also do you plan on doing a review about the animated G.I. Joe movie that came out a year after the Transformers one. I would love to hear your thoughts on that one. Keep up all the kick ass work that all of you at Cinemassacre do.
