    Why don’t we ask Michael Bay to make a sequel to the Addams Family? He’d probably would let them come from outer Space as  well.

       @Dano Angelo I’ve actually heard rumors that Tim Burton was going to be involved in an Addams Family movie. It would, mostly like, suck ass, like (IMO) most of his adaptations. I love a lot of Burton’s original works, but his adaptations leave a lot to be desired, mainly because he doesn’t seem to understand that his “style” doesn’t WORK on just anything.

    Omg please do all AVGN NAOOOOOOOO

  • Alphapix

    March 21, 2012 at 1:55 am

    But James, on the other hand if you keep it exclusive to the DVD’s much more people are going to start buying them IMO.

    • FernandoGS

      March 21, 2012 at 9:01 am

       @Alphapix Maybe a lot of people just buy the DVD to offer support to James. And many people worldwide are unable to buy the DVD….

    • Devil_Rising

      March 21, 2012 at 5:43 pm

       @Alphapix Anyone who’s going to buy the DVDs, is going to buy them as a fan period. So who cares if he puts a couple special feature parts online?

    I have to watch the game review now. Its been awhile.

  • Thrashing Deth

    March 21, 2012 at 2:38 am

    I like to see you review the games that you mentioned you had part of your list. Especially Jaws.

    • phunqsauce

      March 21, 2012 at 10:32 am

       @Thrashing Deth He did review it in episode 101:  Spielberg games

  • AmbossDerRabiator

    March 21, 2012 at 2:54 am

    James come on stop posting the DVD exclusive stuff over here.People whopay money for those are pissed like me!

    • Left 4 Shred

      March 21, 2012 at 4:32 am

       @AmbossDerRabiator I’d be proud that I supported a great filmmaker and happy that more people are able to see more of his material.

    • c64kicksass

      March 21, 2012 at 1:52 pm

       @AmbossDerRabiator At least you don’t have to wait for it to load. (my internet connection is horrible, especially with HD)

    • Devil_Rising

      March 21, 2012 at 5:42 pm

       @AmbossDerRabiator Because he probably figures people who want the DVDs (and this one was, I’m pretty sure, from 2006), have them by now. And Mike needs stuff to post so fans don’t start bitching about “HEY WHERE’S THE NEW CONTENT” while James is doing the movie. Not all of us were able to buy the DVDs, also, so it’s cool to be able to see some of this stuff.

    having a weird problem now, adverts constantly playing in the background of loaded videos now, anyone experiencing this?

    • RyanSanders

      March 21, 2012 at 5:24 am

       @CoreySadler nope. Just use adblock, it prevents the ads from even loading.

    Sucking some ass *clap-clap* Sucking some balls *clap-clap*
    That episode was more interesting as James’ acting, not the gameplay commentary as usual. And final song is awesome too.

  • Calavera

    March 21, 2012 at 9:14 am

    “The makeup was horrible, I was using waterbased makeup” yeah cause thats why people watch the AVGN.  You don’t get it James, people don’t care about the makeup and the guest stars and the fighting and special effects and acting, they just want a guy sitting on the couch playing Nintendo and reviewing/bitching at the games. No one cares about HD quality or any of that shit.

    • RexfordPrickleaus

      March 21, 2012 at 9:18 am

       @Calavera Yeah, anyone who enjoys the scripted aspect of the show cares about all of that.

    • Mathias_P

      March 21, 2012 at 9:27 am

       @Calavera No YOU don’t get it. James is passionate about making films, and that is the reason why he cares about the make-up. It isn’t only about what you think.

    • holcickany91

      March 21, 2012 at 10:15 am

       @Calavera I agree…i miss the old Avgn
      And what about the new ones? Will there be any new videos before the Avgn movie?

    • Jarnor

      March 21, 2012 at 11:08 am

       @Calavera Yes, people hate his attention to detail, that’s why so many 12 year old “game reviewers” on YouTube with no scripts, shitty camera work, and no production values are as popular as AVGN.
      Second of all, talk for yourself duck fuck.

    • pro thizz

      March 21, 2012 at 12:42 pm

       @Calavera you are a moron. u should be banned from cinemassacre.

    • Devil_Rising

      March 21, 2012 at 5:40 pm

       @Calavera Uhh….I get what you’re saying, and I’m sure he appreciates comments like that. But as a creator, you always look back and go “Man, that sucked, I could have done it better”. It’s called self-critiquing. There’s nothing to “get”, just that if he had had more time/money/etc., he would have done it better.

    • nowhere4321

    James, when you first posted this video I emailed you an unknown game genie code that my mom found by accident way back. Did you ever try it? Everyone else can too! It deals instant damage to all creatures as they come on screen, bosses take a few seconds. Here is the code: GZPPXL.

    Hey James,
    To be honest, I think you need to start having commentary of all if not most of your nerd videos! Im a fellow film maker and I absolutely love it when you talk about film! You have a quality in your voice and knowledge of film that speaks to so many people. Perhaps a new segemnt on your DVD’s can be commentaries! Its just a suggestion but I thought I’d let you know that I’d watch your commentaries anyday! I watch commentaries for all the films I purchase and I would sure as hell watch yours! Why? Because I know you dont spend Hollywood dollars on your productions. I appreciate and respect your D.I.Y mentality and therefore I (and millions of others) can relate to your work. You’re such an inspirational and aspiring artist and as much as I adore your Nerd episodes, I also Adore all your personal films and commentaries! Your, “Making Of A Nerd Video: Barbie”  was extremely inspirational to me! Its awesome to see your method of making a film and I admire that!  Visiting your site two to three times a day just puts a smile on my face and keeps me wanting to pursue my film career. Without your support, motivation and inspiration, I’d be still on the ground taking my first few step up the latter.  Thanks always! – Claudio

  • March 21, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    Wow.  So you couldn’t just grow your mustache back?  Well, I never shave, just trim, so I have no idea if my mustache will grow back.

    Still…. Still angry with this review. Not that you think the game sucks, but not giving it a try now and a re-review. Yes, the whole gun thing sucks and the easist way is to grind to max or 1 less than max, then you play the game. It’s pretty cool to see the bosses and the rest of the Adams Family. 2 bars of life does suck, but the manual says from 2 to 4 bars of life….. I’m calling for a replay!!!!!

  • March 21, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    This is one of my favorites too.  I think this may have been the first AVGN vid where I had actually played the game before.  I didn’t dislike it back when I was a kid, mostly because we also rented it and I pretty much always expected games to be hard.  But after watching the review I don’t have much of a desire to ever play it again.

    can someone answer me a question? Just how is James doing as far as AVGN is concerned? I hear a lot of people on google saying he sucks–um, I’m not liking this too well cuz its making me feel as though he may stop making AVGN videos. I hope this never happens. But people are saying that he “LOST HIS TOUCH” um, really? I still like his work, but whatever, he’s still awesome is far as I’m concerned.

    • AdamVogt

      March 22, 2012 at 8:00 pm

       @classicgamelover85 James will always make videos. It’s his passion. While he might not keep doing AVGN forever, I don’t think he’s going to finish any time soon. The only reason the last few haven’t been as good was because he was either too rushed, or he was busy with other things. Spielberg Games was one of the last ones he put a lot of effort into and it definitely showed. I loved that episode. So don’t worry about it too much. If he decides to finish AVGN, which is unlikely to happen anytime soon IMO, he’ll always be making tons of other videos that will make us laugh.

    • Isaiah Fuller

      March 22, 2012 at 11:50 pm

       @classicgamelover85 IMO his best work was 2008, but the newer videos are still really good. It became clear that the focus is elsewhere though.

    • Bevi

      March 23, 2012 at 9:08 am

       @classicgamelover85 alot of people on google are idiots  who cant comprehend that a work of art takes time and effort, and that if they want a new AVGN episode “shit out” every day then that is exactly what they would get… an episode that has been shit out.  If they even cared about James and his work they would know that he is out working hard on the AVGN movie in California.  He is infact risking time, money, and reputation on this project, but he is not a stranger to this.  But in a time when James probably needs all the support he can get It is disturbing that some “fans” would do just the opposite.  @James you aren’t alienating and friends or fans of your work.  you are only angering those who were against your success from the start.  Keep up the fight, and keep dreaming. 

    • DrainBlut

      March 23, 2012 at 10:27 pm

       @classicgamelover85 His newest AVGN videos are as fun to watch as his older ones ever were. He didn’t do sketches as much, but that was only ever the icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned. Now he’s making a movie, and that’ll be worth all the episodes we won’t have gotten up until that point. Unlike most of today’s Hollywood, the guy can actually write good stuff. His mere 200k budget movie will be far more entertaining than most multi million dollar PoS movies Hollywood throws out there.(Like Avatar. I fucking hate that crap.)

  • Schmaugen

    I really liked Fester’s Quest when I was a kid. But you HAD to grind for the best gun on the first road, or you were fucked.  Oh yeah, it was hard as shit too, you almost NEEDED a turbo controller.

  • KatieByrd

    March 23, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    This site is kind of pissing me off! It is the only site that I visit online that won’t buffer because it has too many advertisements and other pictures !  I wish that you would fix this! I mean, I only get to hear one word at a time! Grrrrrrrrr!!!

    • DrainBlut

      March 23, 2012 at 10:24 pm

       @KatieByrd Try using Mozilla and an Addon called AdBlock. I get no ads on any video, anywhere. I commonly watch videos at tgwtg, spoony, angryjoe, phelous, snob, avgn, etc, and I never get any ads. They boot straight to the video and it runs until it’s done without any interruptions. I thought this feature was common knowledge at this point, as I’ve had this for years. The only website I get anything other than perfection on is Hulu. My Hulu videos still pause for the 30 or whatever seconds when an ad is “suppose” to be playing but it’s just a blakc quiet screen until the timer runs out. That’s it. The rest don’t even do that. They just load the video and play start to finish, there’s nothing else, which is good. I come for the show. I don’t come for the 10millionth healthcare product or applebees shout out.
      You can’t really argue that I’m hurting anyone, because I never went to any advertised sites before, and now I still don’t. There’s no difference once so ever on their end. I just don’t have to be burdened seeing them anymore. Unless you WANT to see the ads and go to them sometimes, then there’s no point in having to see them. They just waste your time and also your bandwidth for having to load crap you don’t want to even watch. Sure people like James are paid to have them on there, but I’m sure as hell not paid to watch them.

         @DrainBlut This is the wrong answer.

        March 28, 2012 at 8:42 pm

         @DrainBlut  If you think about it, you are hurting somebody important by blocking the ads.  Your hurting Cinemassacre.  Almost all revenue on a site that provides free content comes from ad clicks.  Generally they will get about 25 cents per ad click and a little more if that click results in a sale or signing up for a newsletter.
        It is getting harder and harder to find ad portals that will pay on unique visitor counts precisely because of software like AdBlock.

       @KatieByrd No point in turning any ads off because thats one of the ways James makes his money, i’d rather help him get money and make more videos which will then make them better by just watching a few ads.

       @KatieByrd I would rather leave all the ads on and watch a few at the start of the video because thats one of the ways James makes money, and i wouldnt mind just watching ads if its going to be helping james make good videos and help him by giving him money through the ads for the new AVGN movie, basically no harm having a few ads, especially when its helping james make awesome videos.

         @ghostliamgamer  Most ad portals don’t pay for unique visitors anymore.  They only pay for unique ad clicks and a little more if you sign up for a newsletter or buy something.
        If you want to support James more then click on the ads.
