It’s the old Nerd man cave 🙂 I wonder if he misses this place…
September 23, 2015 at 3:19 pm
I think its the current one…

That was fucking great.

February 15, 2012 at 12:31 am
I have something that looks like that but it’s suppose to be a VR snowboarding game that actually isn’t a VR game.
February 15, 2012 at 12:36 am
So… are all the DVD bonus features going to be uploaded or something?
February 15, 2012 at 12:41 am
Hahahaha! I loved when Mike was talking about that stick thing and how you might hit someone if you forgot to take it off. I almost died I was laughing so hard. You guys are hilarious I must say.
February 15, 2012 at 12:42 am
@aztoya06 You weren’t the only one. I nearly busted a gut, oh man.
February 15, 2012 at 1:25 am
@aztoya06 Agreed…I replayed it 3 timeshahaha
April 20, 2015 at 6:02 am
It’s the Oculus Rift!
Well, that was the 90s. Pointless hardware that tried to be ahead of its time, but instead fell flat on its backside.
February 15, 2012 at 7:55 am
@CCH3900 Oh we have had some stinkers and its only been 1 year, the kinetic only had about 5 games none of the even close to being good.
February 15, 2012 at 12:59 am
Wow! That was just so hilarious!
February 15, 2012 at 1:06 am
Sweet CONAN shirt.
February 15, 2012 at 1:10 am
Great video! More like this, please! I love seeing all these horribly shitty old peripherals. I wanted one of these SO bad as a kid
Turns out later in life I found out they were huge pieces of shit. Meanwhile the rockerpad has still never been surpassed and systems like the 360 wish they had it.
February 15, 2012 at 1:18 am
I’ve seen something like this before – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDEebdmfqpA – It didn’t have a screen but the closeup seemed to be the same deal, a blurry plastic screen between you and the game screen itself. The box on the CyberFX 3D warned about permanent eye damage so I wouldn’t recommend using this for too long, not that you’d want to with the headaches anyway.
February 15, 2012 at 1:23 am
One of your actual best and most hilaeious videos up to date! 😀
February 15, 2012 at 1:26 am
see here how to work http://youtu.be/6PigS9s0dHc
February 15, 2012 at 1:37 am
haha, you guys are hilarious!
February 15, 2012 at 1:54 am
Haha couldn’t stop laughing!
February 15, 2012 at 1:55 am
LMAO… oh lord… Absolutely hilarious. What a shit load of fuck the Stuntmaster is. hahah
February 15, 2012 at 2:01 am
Lmfao, you guys are great.
February 15, 2012 at 2:23 am
MotherFucker Mike is MotherFuckin Funny!!!!!! Laughing my damn head off!!!! LMDHO!!
February 15, 2012 at 2:28 am
.LOL oh man!, that was a freakin’ stinkin’ piece of dogcrap..
February 15, 2012 at 2:29 am
So fucking awesome guys. Please keep these coming!!
February 15, 2012 at 2:32 am
Is this CinemaTube now?
February 15, 2012 at 2:38 am
Hahaha! This reminds me of Gamester81’s review of some crappy VR headgear Virtual Boy clone.
February 15, 2012 at 2:57 am
Hilarious. Kinda compensates for the lack of AVGN episodes lately 🙂
February 15, 2012 at 3:09 am
cool, this was on i think on the AVGN VOL 4 extra features video.
February 15, 2012 at 3:25 am
that was fucking funny as hell… it would awesome just hanging out with you 2
Dead or alive you’re coming with me.
February 15, 2012 at 4:00 am
no way, i laugh my ass off… it’s hilarious seeing Mike going nuts as shit. You should make more videos like this one, u’re 2 funny reviewing crap like that one, lol. i want 2 c the avgn movie, my best wishes from Argentina.
February 15, 2012 at 4:06 am
Looks like you were missing the cable for the SNES, seen a video where someone did have a cable for it. That being said also the SNES one was idiotic to connect and the screen still shit.
So yeah a useless piece of crap that thing.
February 15, 2012 at 4:21 am
Funny video. Brings back memories of trying to plug weird video game consolses and stuff. It was always like that and luckly you at least have a great collection of consoles to try that thing on, back in the days we were forced to just give up most times.
February 15, 2012 at 4:22 am
I can recall seeing this in some sort of ad in a magazine when I was like 13 or 14.
February 15, 2012 at 4:38 am
Hey kids, do you hate your friends to no end? Is sharing a screen with them the most miserable experience of your life? would you rather stab yourself in the eyes and collapse your nasal bridge than sit there knowing you are looking at the exact same thing as the piece of shit motherfucker you invited into your own home? Now you can have the best of both worlds with the Virtual Reality Stuntmaster!
The Virtual Reality Stuntmaster offers the greatest technology two gamegears merged together has to offer, and it’s easy to install! Simply put the two video lines into the ports in the back of your console you completely forgot about, clip the support beam to your shirt, solve the mystery of the AC adapter that is 1.5x thicker than the other AC adapters in order to contain it’s awesomeness, and there you go you elitist assholes.
The Virtual Reality Stuntmaster includes it’s own line of multiplayer games, including “Face Fracture” Where a doctor tries to figure out what the hell happened to your nose, and “You can’t see me”, where you tap your ass around the streets of your home town with a stick.
February 15, 2012 at 2:22 pm
Hahahaha! Nice! Yea I do hate my friends to no end!! Man it sounds so cool I want one! 🙂 kidding but this comment is so ridiculously hilarious.
February 15, 2012 at 4:40 am
Damn…this episode would have been hilarious if AVGN himself made it:)
February 15, 2012 at 5:47 am
@ToniLuhtakallio was thinking the same thing 🙂
February 15, 2012 at 5:22 am
Nice break from all your other stuff james – Really enjoyed this one. I generally like when you and Mike do videos like this – always turn out funny! Thanks!
February 15, 2012 at 5:41 am
i had one of them when i was a kid it was cool for the time i used it for the super Nintendo i just used it some times when we would go places that had no tv’s or we just had one and no one wanted to watch me play games it was fun back then
@komothoes you should explain how you got it working on a SNES.
I suppose kids aren’t as susceptible to eye strain as us old folks, hence you enjoyed it.
February 15, 2012 at 5:48 am
@[email protected] James is missing a cable.
February 15, 2012 at 5:50 am
@metalcommand @komothoes lol, cable madness
February 15, 2012 at 5:51 am
It makes me appreciate HDMI, even though I don’t use it.
February 15, 2012 at 7:52 am
@DanielV @komothoes That and their particular head set could be faulty. Well more so than it is.
February 15, 2012 at 6:06 am
lol yup just change out the cable part for sega there’s one for snes ver
February 15, 2012 at 6:55 am
i think it was mike who put it best from the beginning – this thing sucks.
February 15, 2012 at 6:57 am
The first cable Mike showed that said it wasn’t SNES was an s-video cable, there were SNESs with s-video out.
February 15, 2012 at 7:31 am
Nice one. Hilarious when you and Mike are cracking up about the paraplegic neck-support brace pole.
February 15, 2012 at 7:40 am
Oh god, this shit was so bad it even got a serious review
February 15, 2012 at 8:07 am
I think one of the connectors is the old AV connector that’s for the Genesis Model 1, so yeah I think it wouldn’t work on the Genesis 2.
First off, I love that James is rockin a CONAN shirt, TEAMCOCO FTW! And B: I remember that thing from ads in gaming mags from the early 90’s. I had always thought it was two small screens. I had the first gen Sega Master System with the 3-D goggles with Missle Defense 3D and Space Harrier 3D. If you stood far enough back, the 3D effect would stretch across the room. That was the closet I ever saw to VR in a console gaming.
February 15, 2012 at 8:09 am
February 15, 2012 at 8:19 am
Man, when i was a kid, i remember seeing this kind of bullshit gadget at the store, and it sounded really promising, i wanted it so bad.Now, that i see this, i’m glad i stood away from that Pizzashit
February 15, 2012 at 8:20 am
Why was that not an AAVGN episode? C’mooon!
February 15, 2012 at 8:34 am
@LazarheaD I second that, no reason this couldn’t have been AVGN. In fact it had several set ups for The Nerd to rage all over this.
February 15, 2012 at 8:45 am
@LazarheaD It was one of the bonus features on AVGN DVD vol 4
February 15, 2012 at 8:23 am
Just another piece of nostalgic shit they tried to sell to rich kids who thought they are “cool” because they have something like this.
February 15, 2012 at 9:04 am
I looks like you could see through the moon with that thing, and it most get pretty uncomfortable wearing it for long periods of time.
February 15, 2012 at 9:14 am
This thing makes you look like a shittier Geordi LaForge.
February 15, 2012 at 9:22 am
@PresidentRonnie LMAO. Good job
February 15, 2012 at 9:21 am
I love how the biggest problem James has with that thing is not that it’s a fucking piece of shit, but the fact that it doesn’t connect to the super nintendo.
February 15, 2012 at 9:54 am
I’d like to see something on the “virtual reality” arcade games of the mid-90s, i thought they looked pretty cheesy at the time, but it seems they were rather popular for a while.
February 15, 2012 at 10:04 am
Oh man, like 20 years ago a rich friend of mine had it but he couldn’t figure out how to use it, and I’ve always wondered about it till this moment. Another case solved for me! Thanks so much!
February 15, 2012 at 10:05 am
February 15, 2012 at 10:08 am
@Drakekesda Fuck Yeah!
February 15, 2012 at 10:19 am
piece of faking shit ! 😀
February 15, 2012 at 10:37 am
kill it with fire
February 15, 2012 at 10:52 am
Wow another virtual reality tempt gone wrong. I can’t believe after all that trouble it didn’t work. This thing makes Virtual Boy look great which sucks ass too. Is it any wonder why we never got Virtual Reality done right. Because most people that try it half ass the whole concept. I mean gaming keeps getting better yet that’s still stuck in the stone age come on.
February 15, 2012 at 10:54 am
I saw Gamester81’s review of this product and Mike…. You’re wearing the stick incorrectly. It is supposed to hook onto the visor and the other end rests itself on your upper chest.
February 15, 2012 at 10:55 am
This is definitely one of the best videos of all time. Somehow, your videos of Mike and you sitting on a couch just talking about movies, T.V. shows, or games are the best. It’s like Wayne World’s, but better.
February 15, 2012 at 10:58 am
Looks like you were missing the other squid cable for the SNES. Not that it matters really, its still a piece of shit that doesn’t fucking work. And yes James, the name of those types of cables is actually “Squid cables.”
February 15, 2012 at 10:59 am
The octopus cable as you call it, is missing for the SNES in your box. Mine came with two different cables one for Mega Drive and the other for the SNES
February 15, 2012 at 11:03 am
I had one of those when I was a kid. I played Beavis and Butt-head on it for Sega. I’m pretty sure there were two different cable, one for Sega, and one for Super Nintendo. The stick on the side was “supposed” to move the screen side to side as you moved your head side to side (it didn’t work.) Anyway, a couple months after playing Beavis and Butt-head I tried to use it again, but I used the wrong AC adapter and fried it.
February 15, 2012 at 11:11 am
@Ghoulie Yes there is a second “Squid-Cable-Adapter” that connects it to the Super Nintendo.
February 15, 2012 at 11:21 am
Heh, nice quick review. Will you do a proper AVGN once you are done with the movie (after looking up all the details on the internet), or is it too crappy to repeat? 😉
February 15, 2012 at 1:36 pm
@Edward256 i would guess that they covered many of the topics they wanted to bring up, so it would most likely be a polished version of the same thing. so i dont think they would do one.
Dear James or Mikey
Try getting a toolbox drawer system , where you can label your ac adapters , if you got the time to sort them out…… oh wait
February 15, 2012 at 11:23 am
@SorabOliaji I’m sure they’ll get there, but not during the shoot. But what’s wrong with a big pack of stickers? Or even paper tape? That they might melt? Maybe…
February 15, 2012 at 11:28 am
@Edward256 Have you ever tried to make stickers on your AC adapters? they simply wont hold as the glue does not like the heat. they just fall off. you need special heat resistant stickers.
February 15, 2012 at 6:15 pm
@Strazdas My father has. Most of the stickers have been small circles and some have been white squares. The white square ones have been mainly used to put dates on left over food.
Then again, I’m not sure how often those adapters have been used. I think they were stuck on in… 80’s, 90’s, and still holding (those that I still have).
February 15, 2012 at 11:26 am
The actual reason for this was so that kids wouldnt take over the TV, as this meant you need no TV to play.
February 15, 2012 at 11:39 am
@Strazdas you could by small TV for teh price of this piece of fuckign shit
February 15, 2012 at 11:42 am
You could of made a great AVGN episode out of this thing!
February 15, 2012 at 11:45 am
Sony made something like this not so long ago.
February 15, 2012 at 11:50 am
oh yes . it is very expensive 😛 and can play ps3games?????
February 15, 2012 at 1:13 pm
@Erwinator Yes, yes it can. OLED HD screen (2d and 3d), 5.1 sound and compatible with bluetooth equipment, but it also works with the ps3 system. It takes up (almost) all of your eyesight, so it’s like you’re ‘in’ the game/movie (imagine that with 3d..wow).
February 15, 2012 at 11:58 am
already saw this
February 15, 2012 at 12:28 pm
U know there’s a prototype of these for the PS3 with 2 mini OLED screens, 3D, surround sound and stuff.The headset looks exactly like those goggles that they use in Ghost in the Shell when the cyberized people connect their brains to the internet. XD
February 15, 2012 at 1:24 pm
@wishingW3L 5.1 sound and HD quality, compatible with your ps3 and other bluetooth devices. You can already pre – order it for $800,- 😉
February 15, 2012 at 1:25 pm
@metalcommand @wishingW3L Dude I have so many of your comments in my email its not a joke.
February 15, 2012 at 1:28 pm
@gamez @wishingW3L You know it’s possible to disable the e-mails, right? 🙂
February 15, 2012 at 12:33 pm
As soon as I saw the title, I flashed back to the “Spielberg Games” episode of AVGN and remembered how James was interested in virtual reality as a kid.
This was hilarious and I completely lost it at the part where Mike is talking about 2 player clamps. Love the new videos.
February 15, 2012 at 12:36 pm
Hey, so you are supposed to have 2 of those squid wire things. the one you have is only for the Genesis. The other one would be specifically for the Super nintendo, just thought you might want to know.
February 15, 2012 at 12:39 pm
“Are you tired of the EASY way to play video games?”
“Awww man, these video games are for babies.”
“How ’bout a GIANT BALL AND CHAIN SHACKLED TO YOUR HEAD!?”
February 15, 2012 at 12:58 pm
A mysterious message coming from nowhere…
February 15, 2012 at 1:01 pm
I bought this thing on eBay probably 8 years ago for like $60. It. Was. Terrible.
February 15, 2012 at 1:06 pm
springboard loading sucks!!!!!!
@Bone What browser do you use?
February 15, 2012 at 1:16 pm
@metalcommand Mozilla Firefox.
@metalcommand Firefox and IE
February 15, 2012 at 2:25 pm
@Bone @metalcommand Using Firefox now. No Problems here.
@Bone I see. Well, I never have any problems with Google Chrome. Maybe you should try that? I never had any problems with springboard.
February 15, 2012 at 1:19 pm
@metalcommand Thanks for the reply
@Bone Any time.
February 15, 2012 at 1:07 pm
Yeah I watched this on the DVD and I thought this was hilarious. The most of the video (spiller) you just sit there and try to figure it out how to get it to work. haha.
The resume is the best part.
February 15, 2012 at 1:17 pm
It was sort of covered by another post, but the stick is meant to rotate a little potentiometer on the side that sends left and right controller signals, that’s why you need to plug it in to the controller port.
Yay, european plug! Did you achieve any controls by head movement?
