DVD/ Merch update

James / September 17th, 2012

Hey, here’s some of the things coming up.

The Deader the Better DVD – This is the one I’ve been holding off on for a while, because it’s a short film and I had to fill it with bonus features, including a short documentary made in 2006 that hasn’t been released online. We’re hoping to have this out by Halloween.

AVGN Vol 6 – That time of year again. Hoping for a December release. Let me know if you have any ideas/requests for bonus features.

Also, the ScrewAttack store is having a weekly sale where every week, a different item is on sale, so keep checking in.

Aside from all that, I’ve been real busy as usual. I don’t always have a lot to show for it. Just been dealing with regular life and a lot of personal maintenance. Trying to get more videos out, but production’s been slow. Monster Madness is coming along pretty good. Also, the AVGN Movie Trailer should be done this Fall for sure!

    Hi James.

    Ideas for AVGN Vol.6 DVD Bonus Features : behind the scenes of the movie featurettes and a 6 Vol. Package ? (for those, like me, who want to buy the six volumes at once)

  • September 17, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    Well I mentioned it before, so I’ll mention it again. I think it would be great if you could add all the TMNT videos you did as DVD extras. Maybe throw in some “Board James” and “You Know What’s Bullshit?!” as well. Or you could do those on a separate DVD release. The TMNT special videos are my pick for DVD extras on Volume Six, for sure. You might even want to throw the AVGN Movie trailer on there as well. Of course I am just one person and my opinions don’t count alone.

    Thanks! I look forward to The Deader the Better DVD! Short? yes. But Great!

  • September 17, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    You gotta do some behind the scenes stuff for the ROB video kind of like what you did with crazy castle. Some commentary would be nice as well. Also maybe another nerd room tour to show where your collection is at now. I’ve also been real interested in your editing setup. And some of MotherFuckerMike’s game videos. Thanks for reading. I hope we can see some of these in the upcoming avgn dvd.

    Will The Deader The Better count as #003 in the Cinemassacre film collection?

  • justinabsentia

    September 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    i agree with the idea of a behind the scenes of the movie. i’d buy that fucking shit.

  • JayRam

    September 17, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    I’d be satisfied with the usual stuff we find on DVD: commentaries, making-of documentaries, outtakes. Maybe include that “Making of an AVGN episode.” That was cool.

    But, if there’s one thing that bothers me about some bonus features it’s having a featurette being only 2 minutes long, which is actually a snippet from a longer featurette also on the DVD. I find that sorta thing all the time among the movies I own. And, that’s bullshit! 🙂

    id like to see interviews with people involved like your wife or others. also id like to see you do a retrospective looking back at all the episodes you have done , also this would be good in a group setting like some of the people involved in the show sitting around a table telling stories about some of the episodes or stuffl ilke that behind the scene stories fan experiances just new stuff . you have done this at some cons but some of us cant get to the cons , or the ones we do , you end up signing for 4 hours lol . since this vol will be low on actual epidoes id like to see some of the other segments added to it

  • XZero

    September 17, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    For bonus features on the DVD, a ROB behind the scenes video would be great. An AVGN movie trailer is a must, assuming the movie won’t be out by then.
    Given the general lack of Nerd videos in terms of quantity, maybe a DVD-exclusive review of some sort would be a nice touch for fans who are financially supporting Cinemassacre by buying the product.

    I also enjoy watching James and Mike just hanging out in the Nerd room checking out different weird gaming stuff James (or Mike) acquired. Maybe something along the lines of bizarre accessories or consoles that don’t have enough material to make for a Nerd episode, but could warrant being plugged in and screwing around with them.

  • September 17, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    I think some of the board james episodes and maybe Mike’s reviews would be a nice addition to the volume 6 dvd.

  • gaminggod7

    September 17, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    I know this sounds a little bit unusual, but I have always wanted to see a video of not just the nerd room (that’s already been done twice i appreciate it), but I wanted to see an in-depth step by step process of how james rolfe records his video game footage and puts it on his computer so he can edit it.

  • Paul Dower

    September 17, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    I think for an extra you could put in something about how each video has become more and more special effects heavy or how you got better cameras etc. something like a retrospective up to episode 100

  • Sigurd

    September 17, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    You know we are die hard fans here. I think there’s a lot of us. We’re happy with any little details you might have in store about producing the episodes or walking through stuff you have used in them. TMNT special for sure. More commentaries, good stuff.

    Just imagine if Ed Wood had the same oppertunities as you have. What would you have liked to see in a special bonus featurette vid?

  • SpaceSlug

    September 17, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Not to be a creeper but maybe a interview or two or maybe just some behind the scenes (kid-friendly) stuff about your wife. Or maybe just a glance into your personal life. We all know and love you as the nerd, but let us get to know James a bit more. I dont know.. just a random idea. Or hell maybe you and mike just talking bullshit having a few Rolling Rocks.

  • Joker83

    AVGN Special Features:
    -Deleted Scenes
    -Behind the Scenes — Concept/Filming, Editing, Music, Special Effects
    -Spotlights on the Cinemassacre Crew
    -Extra Content like Mikes Vids — (Mikes vids could be part of the story, mike could be a creepy character that lurks in the nerds basement and fucks around when the nerd isn’t there. would be funny for the menus)
    -Sneak Peak for the Movie – NO SPOILERS though please. Just a teaser or prequel.

  • thetruetombo

    September 17, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    I agree with Joker83, he knows what people want!

    Personally for bonus, you NEED to include EXTRA episodes!, even if they are only 5-10 mins long, you could EASLY fill in all the missing pieces for episodes like the Atari Jaguar CDi, which in your videos, you never got it working, leading me and everyone else to believe the console just plain doesn’t work… and you have found a working one!! Also a Sega Saturn video!

    Can’t wait to see the trailer, and the epic movie!

  • jdshald

    September 17, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    If you could include all the videos from 2011 and 2012 that would be awesome. Because you didn’t put out as many videos in 2011 due to the avgn movie it would make it so that there are just as many videos on vol 6 as the other volumes.

    If you include a trailer for the movie as a bonus feature that would be great.

    Make sure to include all the gt memoru retrospectives (double dragon sonic contra ext)

    And make sure the aspect ratio is 16×9 since you stated to use a nicer camera for these episodes. It doesn’t need to be blue ray Dvds fine but for the avgn movie id like if it was hi def.

    Oh and get Mike to draw a cool cover. Make the Colorado red or orange.

    Thanks cant wait till this comes out. Thanks for all the hard work james and the cinemasacre team.

    If you could include all the videos from 2011 and 2012 that would be awesome. Because you didn’t put out as many videos in 2011 due to the avgn movie. Formatting it this ways would make it so that there are just as many videos on vol 6 as the other volumes.

    If you include a trailer for the movie as a bonus feature that would be great.

    Make sure to include all the gt memories retrospectives (double dragon, sonic, contra ext)

    And make sure the aspect ratio is 16×9 since you stated to use a nicer camera for these episodes. It doesn’t need to be blue ray dvds fine but for the avgn movie id like if it was blu ray hi def.

    September 17, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    oh and include all the Cinemassacre Mailbag episodes. Maybe have that and GT Memories Series on the same disc.

    sorry for the double post earlier. wish I could delete a comment.

  • cadwongtonsoup

    You should have some of your memory videos and some good game reviews.

    Personal stuff comes first James. Make sure you take care of your life before anything on this site. I’ve been a fan for a while, and from what I’ve seen, all of the fans here are pretty patient too. We can wait! Cheers buddy.

    Please add a “Cat reel” with fanny moments of your cats, I`m sure they ruined a lot of shots with their curiosity :3

  • siko1989

    September 18, 2012 at 4:48 am

    Volume 6? are you sure there is enough episodes to make a volume 6? Anyway How about an exclusive DVD only AVGN Episode? Doug Walker did it for his Nostalgia Crtic.

  • siko1989

    September 18, 2012 at 4:49 am

    And add all the Board James episodes in the dvd as well.

  • strint519

    September 18, 2012 at 6:17 am

    Exclusive Nerd review ( Totally Rad for nes nudge nudge).

    Behind the scenes for the making of AVGN The Movie.

    The cat reel is a good idea, people love kitties.

    Some Mike vids would also be a welcomed bonus.

  • JasonVoorhees

    September 18, 2012 at 7:59 am

    Some good special features I think would be: some Mike vids, and maybe another look at your DVD collection now. I’m sure a lot of people are interested in how large it’s gotten since the last one. I know I am!

  • Barry the Nomad

    September 18, 2012 at 8:24 am

    For AVGN 6: Would love to have Episodes 98-107 included, as well as all the specials (Contra Memories, etc.).

    “AVGN Vs. NC – The Final Battle!” video. I don’t think the battle has been on a DVD. I know you can’t add the Nostalgia Critic side of things (his game review, his rant videos) but you could have your side of things and the battle itself. You appear in his new movie, To Boldly Flee, so I think it would be a nice gesture for him to allow you to include the battle on your DVD.

    Another collection tour!

  • kntstar

    September 18, 2012 at 11:45 am

    I’d like to see some of the stuff not put on previous disc. Like the Wizard and TMNT III reveiws. Plus the Crossover with Captain S.

  • imma_rocker

    September 18, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    bonus reviews are always nice. like on vol. 4 we got that reality glasses thing and sega 3d glasses. there are other weird accessories that would make a good quick test run, like the atari accessories, knowing there was an abandoned video on them, or a quick good reveiw, like the ducktales on vol. 1, another thing that could be fun is easter eggs

    Hey James. I don’t know if you’re actually planning on doing an AVGN episode for Halloween this year, but if you’re considering it, I’d like to recommend “Porky Pig’s Haunted Holiday” for SNES.

    It’s a relatively short game, and I think it would contain enough humorous material to make a Nerd video out of. I played it as a kid, and again many years later, and both times it was enjoyable, annoying, but funny as hell to play most of the time. I’ve also noticed you own it as listed on your game collection page, so you don’t have to go out and buy it

    As for DVD Bonus Features, I’d like to see more commentaries, and maybe another video of you and Mike screwing around in the Nerd room and maybe trying some random games out.

    Keep up the good work man, I’ve been a big fan for many years and love to support the site by getting your DVDs when they come out. Cinemaphobia and Legend of the Blue Hole are favorites of mine, I hope there’s more Jersey Odysseys one day. And of course I can’t wait to see the AVGN Movie!

  • profusion

    September 19, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    How about some previous Monster Madness reviewes as bonus features for the upcoming AVGN 6 release?

  • spvtryan

    September 19, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    You and Mike are so awesome at every video you put out here at Cinemassacre. I love the AVGN DVDs but I would totally buy in a heartbeat a Cinemassacre Collection. You know of various reviews/ productions/series. Would be amazing. Keep up the great work.


  • Old Hay

    September 20, 2012 at 12:51 am

    Sounds like exciting stuff, dudes. Hey, you mentioned in an update that you weren’t sure when the movie would be released, but would love to have it out for this Christmas in order to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the ET for Atari, right? Is that still a possibility or not? If it’s a money issue, I’d love to pitch in, since I haven’t done so yet.

    I’ve always enjoyed listening to the commentaries, so i’d like to hear more of those. Also, the “making of” AVGN video would be great.

    If it was possible, i’d like to see some of the AVGN vs. Nostalgia Critic stuff too. Some MF Mike videos would be pretty cool as well.

  • Tom Wake

    September 21, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    I’d love to see all the “Nerd Memories” videos (Sonic Memories, etc.) included. Not only are they all entertaining shorts in their own right, but they also give us some very interesting and insightful background information on James’ gaming past, as well as the gaming experiences that seem to have had some influence on the gamer he is today, and on the character of the nerd. Plus, it’s always interesting to find out what he thinks about particular franchises.

    The “Ninja Baseball Batman” video would also be a fun little extra.

    On top of that, the usual commentaries, making-of documentaries, etc. wherever James feels it appropriate.

    I also like the idea of a bonus review. Maybe take the opportunity to select a contemporary game that wouldn’t be eligible to use in the main series and give it the AVGN treatment?

  • Muse83

    September 22, 2012 at 9:28 am

    I would love to see TMNT Pizza Taste Test and To Transform A Transformer as part of the bonus features on Volume 6. Also, I would love to see a Board James/ Mikes Reviews on a 2 disc set in the future.

  • SharkeyZero

    September 23, 2012 at 2:57 am

    I would love to see a “Return of the Game Graphic Glitch Gremlin” Sketch/episode as a bonus feature. Maybe a few more reviews of beloved and classic games that are good overall but can still piss you off. Those are my only ideas at the time. Looking forward to the trailer and the film itself.

  • Sebastien L. Wood

    September 23, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    You should put videos like the ”hanging in the nerd room” and the ”Sega 3D glasses”. Those were hilarious 😀

  • Poundu

    September 24, 2012 at 1:45 am

    You should do another tour of the nerd room. Plus do a few bonus reviews with Mike like you did with the Stuntmaster on Volume 4. Also include Board James episodes.

  • Truthtraveler

    September 25, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    I think you should definetely include some of the AVGN Vs NC material, maybe even the year later anniversary brawl stuff.

  • MetalHorrorNES

    September 26, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    I would like to see stuff for the AVGN movie as extras on Volume 6. Other than that I’m not sure what else I could think of. Is volume 6 going to be only 10 episodes? I was a little disappointed w/ Volume 5 but of course I still laughed my ass off and can’t wait for volume 6 and the movie. Keep up the good work James!

  • September 27, 2012 at 12:08 am

    James you should tell us when your going to release the AVGN movie trailer soon. We can’t wait!

    Hey James, I think it would be great to see the Board James on the next AVGN volume. #1 request from me. Considering there will be fewer AVGN episodes on this volume than on those previous, I’d love to have some other videos to make it worthwhile. Some of your mini game/media reviews, Mike’s game reviews and more would be more than welcome on Vol 6! Get Badluck Bootsy in there!

    Love you guys
