I like to touch meaty wangs.
August 3, 2011 at 11:15 pm
You can take the midnight bus to hell. That’s a good game. As is it’s doppleganger Psycho Fox for the Master System..
August 3, 2011 at 11:22 pm
I wasn’t expecting an episode although I checked anyway. Thanks broski!!
August 3, 2011 at 11:28 pm
Best avgn video i’ve seen in a long time.
August 3, 2011 at 11:29 pm
when i check cinemassacre.com and see a new AVGN episode,.. there is a tiny parade that starts marching in my head.
August 3, 2011 at 11:31 pm
I have been waiting for this moment for years and it feels so good…… in my pants.
holy cow surprise avgn! nice treat after a long day at work, thanks man!
August 3, 2011 at 11:32 pm
helll yeahhh!!! a new avgn video!!!
August 3, 2011 at 11:33 pm
August 3, 2011 at 11:34 pm
wow, i hate to beat the game then at the end the game says fuck u u didnt beat it fast enough
August 3, 2011 at 11:37 pm
HAhahaha, very good episode!!!! xDD
August 3, 2011 at 11:43 pm
Haha, now James will never hear the end of “how many tries did it take to land kid kool in the trash?” from fans.
August 3, 2011 at 11:47 pm
Awesome, always glad to see a new AVGN. The game looks like a fun side scroller on the outside, but I definitely know how much controls can screw up a game 🙁
August 3, 2011 at 11:54 pm
conclussion: kid kool is NOT cool! hahaha
August 3, 2011 at 11:56 pm
I like you a lot, but don’t take that to seriously, I find cool that you keep the avgn videos even with the movie rolling, you’re awesome
August 4, 2011 at 12:01 am
Good video James. It’s nice to see a new AVGN. Honestly, I’ve really been enjoying going through the archives, and all the other cool stuff on your page. It’s given me a new respect for you.
Woot, AVGN. Nice back shot in the trash can, was that an accident?
After looking at this — http://www.gamefaqs.com/nes/587382-kid-kool-and-the-quest-for-the-seven-wonder-herbs/images/box-71240 — here’s an interesting something that may as well fit with how horrid this game really is.
The Japanese title, translated, is “Kakefu’s Jump Heaven: Speed Hell”. Anyone here notice any bits of irony? Or the opposite?
August 4, 2011 at 12:04 am
“Dr. Claws Dump ‘n Pump”? what the hell? XD
August 4, 2011 at 12:18 am
Fun review – but question: why doesn’t this site have a forum for us to more easily post and read posts on? It’d be really nice, and it’s not hard to get a free one out there and link to it.
August 4, 2011 at 12:21 am
Straight, to the point, and a good episode in my opinion. The 7 sins was a great way to summarize the control problems. Loved the throw to the can at the end, as well as the ending that said you didn’t do it ‘perfectly’ (like bart vs the world).
Good, simple episode. Glad to have the Nerd back.
And Dr. Claw’s Dump and Pump… Wow. I can see it now.
“I’ll flush you next time, floater… Next tiiiiime!!!”
Great episode love that stuff is finally coming out. 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 12:24 am
Beautiful review good job sir!
August 4, 2011 at 12:27 am
Yes! Finally A New AVGN Episode! Keep ’em Comin James!
August 4, 2011 at 12:32 am
Yeah, I remember this rotten piece of fuck. It goes on record for having controls worse than “Menace Beach”, and the game mechanics are worse, as well. Fucking SKIPPING ACROSS WATER LIKE I’M SOME KIND OF FUCKING PEBBLE. WHAT FUCKING FILTH! Thanks for reviewing this piece of shit-fuck, Nerd.
August 4, 2011 at 12:37 am
This is one of my favorite AVGN episodes in a while! It was a very simple, yet very entertaining episode. I can’t wait to see more of these
August 4, 2011 at 12:39 am
Is Dr. Claw’s Dump and Pump a real game!?
James, you gotta review this for us haha.
August 4, 2011 at 12:40 am
Great job on the scaled down AVGN. It doesn’t even matter that you didn’t make it a full length episode, which I imagine means you didn’t spend nearly as much time on the production. It was still just as good as all the other episodes that I love. What a nice surprise indeed to see a new/awesome episode.
And I agree with Mike….if you think this game is amazing you REALLY need to take off the ole’ “nostalgia goggles” and take a close look at the absolutely HORRID CONTROL!
August 4, 2011 at 12:42 am
Awesome James i just found this game about 3 weeks ago. Looked like a decent game possibly a super mario bros 3 knock off, how bad could it be? Wow i was wrong . You are great James and an awesome inspiration keep it up
August 4, 2011 at 12:44 am
I about died of laughter when he was explaining the part where the screen shifts up lol
August 4, 2011 at 12:49 am
Alright, this episode was pretty cool.
And I guess you would know all about the fact that making something good takes time, right James?
August 4, 2011 at 12:53 am
this was great to motivate me to finish cleaning my room. The sooner I get done, the sooner I can watch the new episode!
it’s been said, but seriously.. “Dr. Claws Dump’n’Pump”? How did you just breeze by that one? XD even the picture on it doesn’t seem to lead you away from thinking exactly what it sounds like 😡
I’ve seen many games with a lot of potential be ruined simply by bad controls. Its very unfortunate when it happens, but I guess it makes you appreciate the good ones.
thanks for another great episode! I was excited when I realized it was the first Wednesday so happy to see it up now. I’m not sure how many times it took to get that last shot, but your face looked pretty damn genuine when you heard you got it. Keep up the great work!!
August 4, 2011 at 12:55 am
Though the game has it’s flaws (the top of the screen scroll being annoying as hell, but liveable in the end) and the controls being bad, I simply love sitting down and playing this game. I’ve spent countless hours playing this game on my NES (and that was with good old NES roulette where any pet who walks by might nudge the console and send the game into glitchy hell).
Still, I love sitting down and playing Kid Kool, but I’m still glad there was an AVGN episode on it, cause even if it’s called bad game I still like playing it, but AVGN is always so hilarious to watch.
Also, for any curious, I doubt I’m seeing this game through nostalgia goggles, as I had only gotten the game two or so years ago and still play it every so often on my Laptop (thanks to losing my NES and my Games in a move).
August 4, 2011 at 1:12 am
what a nice surprise!! As soon as I visit Cinnemassacre and see that there’s a new video I’m like “fuck yeah”..but when there’s a new AVGN video I’m like “FUCK YEAH”…I admire your hard work and dedication to everything you are doing..keep kicking ass and saying fuck!! (by the way James..since your first ANN video you have dug into the wretched catacombs of deplorable video games..many of which I have never even heard of..but Simon’s quest I remember as a child and I agreed with all of which you pointed out in your video..but recently I played it again, and..well..once you understand the nature of it, it’s actually a very good game..I mean, yeah, it’s bad..but not the kind of bad where you’re not even interested in playing it through ..the gameplay, the scenery and the music all kick ass..but the day/night bullshit..oh God..long live
CastleVania, and long live AVGN!!
August 4, 2011 at 1:42 am
That was a pretty good AVGN. A throwback to the older episodes, which is great. Although I really do love the bigger production episodes. But you can’t pump those out as often, plus I bet you’re saving any big stuff for the movie. Thanks for continuing the AVGN series, I would’ve been cool just waiting for the movie, but you’re a real trooper, man, and you obiviously care for the fans, so once again, thank-you!
P.S.: Do you know where I can find a copy of ‘Dr. Claw’s Pump N’ Dump’? I’d like to try it out sometime! LOL. XD
August 4, 2011 at 1:46 am
james you should do james bond games there is plenty of shitty ones like
james bond jr
and good ones to
August 4, 2011 at 2:08 am
Dr. Claw’s Dump ‘N’ Pump has some of the worst controls ever. It seemed like every time I pushed the A button he dumped instead of pumped.
August 4, 2011 at 2:13 am
whoa whoa..”Dr claws drump n pump” WTF!! seriously.
August 4, 2011 at 3:25 am
A new AVGN 😀 Was awesome! I couldn’t believe the fuckness when the screen scrolled up and down with every jump…
WHAT WERE THEY THINKING
August 4, 2011 at 3:35 am
August 4, 2011 at 4:10 am
I wonder if he threw that game for a perfect shot for maybe a few takes but that was fucken hilarious an a perfect episode hope there will be more james cause ur the fucken nerd and mike is the motherfucker.
August 4, 2011 at 4:15 am
AVGN is back, and doing it big. This must continue for another 97 episodes, or I’m gonna be pissed…
August 4, 2011 at 4:22 am
“DR. CLAW’S DUMP & PUMP”!?!?!?!?!?!?
DEAR GOD MAN…….IT IS YOUR DUTY TO SHOW, REVIEW AND RIP THE SHIT OUT OF THAT GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congrats on yet another funny AVGN episode. Keep em coming.
Can’t wait for the movie!
August 4, 2011 at 4:31 am
How many times did you have to throw the cartridge until it landed in the trasch can?
Vary good episode!
August 4, 2011 at 4:34 am
I thought ninja baseball batman counted as a nerd episode, but this one is being called 103 and barbie was 102? Why does nbb not count?
Anyway, yay new nerd episode!
August 4, 2011 at 4:53 am
what happened to episode 102? you did the making of it
but the review is where?
August 4, 2011 at 4:56 am
Nice, thanks for making the video 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 5:38 am
this is so much better than thatguywiththeglasses
August 4, 2011 at 6:18 am
i like the simplicity, much like the older ones, but didn’t find it too funny. Maybe certain words are being overused… I don’t know.
August 4, 2011 at 6:22 am
LOL great episode, classic ending.
August 4, 2011 at 6:35 am
*seeing that there’s a new AVGN episode*
*watching it with excitement*
*feeling empty inside again*
August 4, 2011 at 6:41 am
I owned this game when i was young and it’ a fucking piece a dog shit…
But it’s still funny to see you told about how shitty it was ^^
August 4, 2011 at 6:52 am
i dont think they misspelled cool. i think Kool was the guys name.
August 4, 2011 at 6:59 am
Because poor literacy is soooper kEwL! B-)
August 4, 2011 at 7:09 am
Nice to see the nerd again, James.
I used to play Psycho Fox on my master system, and the controls were pretty fucked too. I remember liking it as a kid though, besides never being able to beat it.
We do have a new perspective of the episodes after the making off, and I may say I enjoy it even more now.
We, kids of the 80’s, are actually special.
Kisses from a Brazilian supporter and fan.
damn, is Dr. Claw’s Dump and Pump inexplicably Inspector Gadget related, like the mario bros DVD? I’d love to see that one reviewed!
August 4, 2011 at 7:17 am
Off the freefalling fuckballs, oneway bullshit into inviso bitch, two gear diarrhea across topside aquatic ass, jump fuckness into air suspension shitlift…. nothin but net… WOOOSH!
August 4, 2011 at 7:18 am
That ending made me laugh.
August 4, 2011 at 7:34 am
that dr claw title sounds awesome
August 4, 2011 at 7:37 am
HooRaa! New AVGN episode. Thank You.
August 4, 2011 at 7:52 am
OH JAMES! 😀 i knew it you dont fogget my birthsday 1 day ago, GRACIAS AMIGO, i gonna watch…and be happy again 🙂 with my new 5 xbox 360 games
August 4, 2011 at 8:37 am
that’s easily one of the best avgn episodes in a while. I always preferred the more basic ones. It was funny well written and entertaining. I get the feeling you’re going to do some of the best episodes while you’re making this movie :p
August 4, 2011 at 8:46 am
Great episode James! Certainly one of the funniest for a while. I’m glad that you didn’t announce when it was going to be released, it’s for the best really. Keep it up! 😀
August 4, 2011 at 8:56 am
Great episode! It’s short, simple, and still awesome!
August 4, 2011 at 8:57 am
Another classic episode. Thanks! Dr Claw’s Dump & Pump… OMFG hahaha…
August 4, 2011 at 8:58 am
That garbage can shot was priceless! Hahahahaha!
August 4, 2011 at 9:00 am
great episode. cant wait for another one. 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 9:21 am
I just want to know, how many takes to get that cart in the can?
August 4, 2011 at 9:23 am
Excellent. I realize you are only doing episodes that are more barebones then some of the technical fx monstrocities of the past, but I actually still love these.
And yeah, now everyone is out looking for Dr. Claw’s Dump n Pump. Nice lil addition.. haha.
GO GO Gadget FECES!….
“I’ll get you next time gadget*pumppumpflush* Next tiiiime…”
August 4, 2011 at 9:37 am
of course kool is more cool with k !
August 4, 2011 at 9:47 am
loved the episode but couldve been funnier and dude i thought you got all ur castlevanianess in 09
August 4, 2011 at 10:12 am
Well done James, classic like episodes like this are great!
August 4, 2011 at 10:14 am
Vic Tokai also made Clash at Demonhead, and I see they reused some sound effects there.
August 4, 2011 at 10:35 am
Is Dr. Claw’s Dump and Pump an actual game?
August 4, 2011 at 10:47 am
It doesn’t matter how long the reviews are or how high the production value is to me…I love them all and this review is no exception. Thanks for all the work and for keeping us entertained.
August 4, 2011 at 10:51 am
I’ve been waiting for you to make an episode of this game, because it’s one of the most ridiculous ones I have for my NES.
August 4, 2011 at 11:00 am
Another hilarious episode!
August 4, 2011 at 11:12 am
never played this one but i do have decapitack or however the fuck you spell it….that game was pretty hard to but it definitly looks like it was of a better quality
August 4, 2011 at 11:20 am
Great review James! I vaguely remember hearing about this game but never played it back in the day. Vic Tokai certainly made some weird games…Clash at Demonhead was a favorite of mine as was Golgo 13 (and one hard fucking game to finish!)…but this one looks like they really unloading the shit wagon on it. ^_^
August 4, 2011 at 11:38 am
New AVGN! That made my day! The ending with the trashcan was fantastic. Was it intentional?
August 4, 2011 at 11:40 am
Great video! What are the odds we get to see a Neo Geo system or game review in the future? I know you have referenced the extremely large games. Anyway, keep up the good work.
I think this was an attempt to make a copy of Super Mario Bros. you cant go back, there`s hidden blocks everywhere, there’s a king in peril (super mario bros. 3), you stomp on enemies, there’s a time limit… sort of, and another things…
August 4, 2011 at 11:47 am
I really want to play Dr. Claw’s Dump N Pump. Does it come with a plunger-shaped peripheral?
August 4, 2011 at 12:01 pm
AVGN strikes back!
You just made my day.
August 4, 2011 at 12:05 pm
So how many tries did it take you to get it in that bin? Or was it legitimately on accident?
August 4, 2011 at 12:07 pm
Nothing makes the sun shine brighter during the day than to see a new AVGN episode in the morning.
August 4, 2011 at 12:11 pm
lol Vic Tokai is the Japanese LJN btw !!! 😉
August 4, 2011 at 12:24 pm
Oh god, finally paid a visit again to see a new AVGN episode is at the top of the list instead of all the turtle stuff or whatever:
Watching this almost makes me feel aggressive… this game must really be annoying to play with all this screen freezing when jumping and the invisible stuff. And if you get this feeling and know that you’ll never ever want to touch this game, you know that AVGN did a good job.
August 4, 2011 at 12:33 pm
Come on now, I won’t have Vic Tokai compared to LJN. Those games sucked KFC Boner Bucket, with extra gravy for sure, But who can forget great titles such as Gologo and the legendary MD shooter ‘BattleMania’ TroubleShooter’.
Great video James 😉
August 4, 2011 at 12:35 pm
I just found your French copy 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 12:42 pm
This was awesome! As you said in your news this was oldschool 2006 style… and I love it! 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 12:56 pm
Wow he even covered barbie game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuU9Oy01oWY&feature=related 😛 cool huh?
August 4, 2011 at 12:58 pm
It’s just so great that on top of everything you’re busy doing, you still have time to make AVGN episodes and I’m glad that, even tho the game you reviewed seemed to be rushed when it was made, your review didn’t feel rushed and didn’t lack your AVGN style !! <3
Dr. Claw's Dump & Pump ?? I can only imagine what that game is like lol
Can't wait for the next new vid !!
August 4, 2011 at 1:18 pm
another great one, thanks james and mike
August 4, 2011 at 1:37 pm
Seven different herbs XD
August 4, 2011 at 2:03 pm
Whoa, he played for like 5 hours!
August 4, 2011 at 2:06 pm
Good episode! 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 2:09 pm
Look at this! LOOK AT THIS!!!!!!
LMAO! Awesome episode 10/10
August 4, 2011 at 2:19 pm
Great Review! Best part was when you mentioned Dr. Claw’s Dump n Pump. And to the people who asked if it is real, it is. 🙂 Good stuff, keep up the good work!
August 4, 2011 at 2:26 pm
I thought James was taking a break for the movie production. It’s nice to see it’s not the case!
I just hope this doesn’t mean something is up with the movie…. *paranoia*
August 4, 2011 at 2:40 pm
A simple yet good review.
We appreciate all the work you’ve put in and eagerly await the movie. I’ll wait as long as it takes, and I’m sure most others will too!
August 4, 2011 at 2:49 pm
1:19- So, I take it that Vic Tokai is similar to Wisdom Tree.
2:50- Because poor literacy is KEWL (or in this case, KOOL).
5:40- In speaking of $h!t, I feel I need to do something similar, but in the oposite way, because of how screwy this is.
8:00- Wow. Nice shot! Reminds me of the basketball scene in “Alien: Resurrection.”
August 4, 2011 at 2:51 pm
this has made my day! thanks james 😀
August 4, 2011 at 2:57 pm
Awesome. An AVGN episode on my birthday – that’s what I call a kool … uhm… cool present 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 2:58 pm
ah damn, it was uploaded on Aug 3rd.. ok, that was one day too early 😛 Still a nice episode
August 4, 2011 at 3:01 pm
This just goes to show that “Less is more”. In this episode all you did was talk trash about the video game and show gameplay footage. Just like the early days. I personally found that way more enjoyable than when you try to turn the episode into some sort of film. Welcome back James 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 3:19 pm
this episode was by far the best in a while! avgn, welcome back to your roots! great video regardless of length, this one hit the sweet spot! im glad you have time to still make these videos as i wasnt expecting a video this great considering the announcement of the avgn movie! AWESOME!
August 4, 2011 at 3:27 pm
great review James. no bs huge production. just a straight game review of a shit game. it’s what brought us to you, and it’s what keeps us coming back for more.
August 4, 2011 at 3:33 pm
Old style,best style !
Thanks for the episode James,good as ALWAYS !
August 4, 2011 at 3:45 pm
I really appreciate you keeping up with the avgn series. Great stuff! Thanks!!
August 4, 2011 at 4:18 pm
I can’t wait to see the outtakes on the next DVD: “Kid Kool trash bin throw” 😀 …
August 4, 2011 at 4:36 pm
Dr. Claws Dump ‘n Pump!? holy shit, that must be awesome! please review that!
August 4, 2011 at 4:39 pm
Lmao nice and can James get anybetter lol lol i can’t stop laughing free fall fuck balls lmao.
August 4, 2011 at 5:11 pm
A new AVGN! Have my babies!
August 4, 2011 at 5:12 pm
Good review but please lay off Simons Quest its a great game and I think James knows it.
August 4, 2011 at 5:15 pm
Kid Kool isn’t kool, but that basket shot sure was!
August 4, 2011 at 6:34 pm
Just because poor literacy is Kewl, it doesn’t mean this piece of seven sided fuck-poop is. Nice video James and no matter how you do these videos it should just be right for you. If some people like your older stuff fine, if people like your newer stuff better fine. Just as long as your cool with it we’re cool with it.
August 4, 2011 at 6:55 pm
You are great James!
I’m following you from about two years, but just now i decided to subscribe myself to your site. Why so long? I don’t know.
I heard you so tired in this video.. I speak of your voice, not content. But all we, your fans, know that you are so busy with a lot of stuff..
But even so, you’re doing great! You’re awesome!
I just wanted to say: greetings from Italy!
Keep to follow your dreams, you are a great inspiration!
Congratulations for all your work, from the deep of my heart!
P.s. and so to Motherfucker Mike! Thanks both of you guys, and to all those who work and help here!
P.p.s. i apologize for some writing errors..
August 4, 2011 at 7:02 pm
Yeah, “Dr. Claw’s Dump n Pump”: awesomeness.
August 4, 2011 at 7:26 pm
For a while, I thought there was something wrong with the newer AVGN videos, but I couldn’t put my finger on what it was. It was like something was missing. Now that I’ve seen the good quality of this latest video, it finally hit me: it was the Nerd’s attitude towards the games he reviewed. The name of the character is the Angry Video Game Nerd, but in the newer videos, he might as well have been called the Bored Video Game Nerd or the Apathetic Video Game Nerd. He tossed out phrases like “who cares” or “I don’t give a shit” like they were confetti. Maybe it’s just me, but when I watch an AVGN video, I do it with the expectation that I’m going to see the Nerd blow his top and give a bad game the full lashing it deserves, not see the Nerd reluctantly phone in a review. I mean reluctance has its place in the character, but it shouldn’t be overdone. The Christmas episode that was based off of A Christmas Carol summed up the Nerd perfectly: he doesn’t want to play shitty games, but somehow he’s drawn to them like a moth to the flame.
August 4, 2011 at 7:40 pm
Awesome Man! Been suffering from AVGN withdrawls for a while. Watching your stuff with some cold beers, very nice indeed.
August 4, 2011 at 7:47 pm
Always nice to see a new AVGN episode!
Please review Total Recall for the NES at some point. 🙂
August 4, 2011 at 8:20 pm
JAMES!!!!!! I saw an announcement on youtube saying that your main priority is the movie and reviews will still be basic. well guess what? the reviews… ARE STILL FUCKIN AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! After all, your the nerd!
