    looks awesome!

  • AquaBlueStew

    April 17, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    AWESOME… Looks totally raaaad!
    But please(to whomever), for the love of whatever, please (yes, again) port this thing to the NES… we’d all get one. Thank you for your consideration.

    • April 17, 2013 at 12:18 pm

      That is an epic idea!!

    • ifisch

      April 17, 2013 at 2:13 pm

      This is CLEARLY being made using the Game Maker engine. They can’t port it to NES.

      Just be happy for what they’re doing.

        Does it make me weird that I feel like I’m cheating if I use anything more than a graphics library and C/C++ to write a game?

    • John Gusler

      The NES totally could not handle this game. To many colors on screen and the like. It isn’t true 8 bit. It would be a massive downgrade, and probably more dev time to port it to NES. They would need to change everything about it.

      • April 17, 2013 at 6:18 pm

        well this isnt a problem that couldnt be solved with GlovePie scripting. I have written many that involve the Wii Classic controller to N64 and GameCube Emulators, as well as one that lets you use your Wiimote for VLC media player.

      • Davy

        April 18, 2013 at 1:36 am

        It could be ported to the SNES then!

  • April 17, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    AWESOME. Cant wait to play it!

  • Wien

    April 17, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    I hope this game contains insanely long, time sensitive passwords.

  • Don Moran

    April 17, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    From the game references I noticed; Mario, Contra, Mega Man, Silver Surfer, Castlevania, Sonic the Hedgehog, Kirby, Ninja Turtles, and Ikari Warriors. Not to mention the Majora’s Mask moon in the background, and the Zelda health bar. Any I missed?

    • April 17, 2013 at 1:58 pm

      “Doom”… the Cacodemon that burps like Barney from The Simpsons.

      • Exustio

        April 17, 2013 at 8:31 pm

        Thanks! Yeah, I guess I forgot that one.

  • April 17, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Was that a flying scrotum gun?

  • April 17, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Can’t wait to see the nerd reviewing his own game! ๐Ÿ˜› (of course i’m buying it, already voted for it on greenlight)

  • Leah

    April 17, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    I am so excited for this game! Scrotum Guns and Cock Rockets for everyone! lol

  • April 17, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Make sure you tell the developers to remove all ability to save your game or continue from a checkpoint.

    and instead have them place a 20-30 character password to continue like the old Nintendo games that pissed everyone off!

    that would be epic ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Fartmann

    April 17, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    James, you should review this game when it comes out. It would be great advertisement for the game and a good idea for a new episode.

  • April 17, 2013 at 1:35 pm


  • April 17, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Congrats! The game got greenlit just now! I saw it on my facebook feed! ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Allen Lucas

    April 17, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Game looks like fun and challenging! What’s missing is the Nerd narrating what he sees, but that’s just me.

  • Ruben

    April 17, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    I want that game!!!!!!!

  • Gearoid

    April 17, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    What a marvelous homage to the art of Video Games.

    And a perfect celebration for the joy that you’ve brought so many people, James (and Mike!!!; and indeed all those who have contributed both Primary and Secondry parties *I’m lookin’ at you LJN…. ;P).

  • nesfan123

    April 17, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    it looks really fun

  • fuwalda

    April 17, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    You better be able to shoot in all directions like Contra! Otherwise, this will be ass.

    Also… other than the main character design, I’m not getting much of an AVGN feel from it. Where’s Shit pickle? Safety pin enemies? Needs more… I dunno… AVGN references. But it is cute and looks fun.

  • JJRambo

    April 17, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    So awesome!!!! BUYING!

  • April 17, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    There totally needs to be a way to haaaave a buffalooo… take a diarreah dump in his eeeear ๐Ÿ™‚

  • April 17, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    its like a megaman game, i love it.

  • fackya

    April 17, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    This looks like it’s going to be an instant classic.

  • nesfan123

    April 17, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    i want a nerd episode

  • April 17, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    They could, in theory, port this to the nes as a sprite edit for each game it’s cloning, like the mega man 2 clone in his game, get a megaman 2 rom image and hack it, then flash it to a Retrones lite from retrousb.com. The snes games are more difficult to flash to a cart.

  • TyroneAlfonso

    April 17, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    35 second commercial for a trailer?? Come on Jimbo, I expect better from you.

  • karel1

    April 17, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    It would be AWESOME if I could get this for the 360!

  • erik37

    April 17, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    cant wait to play it, an cant wait for the review of your own game, looks awesome thou i see mega man style which i love with a lil bit of everything else in it are we gonna get a hockey mask, an a mr.hyde type mother fucker boss to beat in it too? lol


    April 17, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    :42 Thumbs up for belching/ vomiting Hornhead from Madballs!

  • April 17, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    That game looks like a lot of fun.
    And it would totally be fucking rad to have the nerd give it a review. And why not give your own movie a review too?!
    Yeah, you could totally review it as normal James, and then start tearing the nerd a new asshole. Oh man, that would be so funny…like REALLY funny. You gotta do it someday, pretty please?

  • April 17, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    This looks like it took a LOT of inspiration from Megaman 2. Good. It’s my favorite of the series.

  • April 17, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    will this be on touch phones or on this website or both

  • Ace

    April 17, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Am already looking forward to/dreading the Silver Surfer level. I wonder what Santa did to deserve being used as a bloody snowboard?

  • charminghk

    April 17, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    OMG hahahah this looks awesome…

  • Valis77

    April 17, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    it looks great.

  • April 17, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Bad. Ass.

  • codemonkey3997

    April 17, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Awesome!!! I can’t wait for this game. I hope it is for pc!

  • April 17, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    Forget Steam, this has to go to the Nintendo Wii and the old NES too. : )

  • frostare

    April 17, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    I hope the villain is a creative original one! If not then one that shined from the series!

  • April 17, 2013 at 11:31 pm

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if this game sucked ass?
    It probably won’t, nor do I want it to.
    However, I would like to see an AVGN episode where the Nerd reviews his own game.

  • Czab

    April 18, 2013 at 12:07 am


  • April 18, 2013 at 12:22 am

    Hoooooooly shit, cool.

  • likalaruku

    April 18, 2013 at 12:57 am

    Heheheh…Majora’s Mask moon.

    I hate to say it, but that music is really repetitive.

  • Ninja Kush

    April 18, 2013 at 1:14 am

    This game looks actually really good. I think it will be a hit. The music sounds very fitting and badass. i will for sure be playing this game through till the end. looking foward to it. the controls look very smooth too. kinda like megaman. I like the part where your ide a dead santa as a sled lol

  • Davy

    April 18, 2013 at 1:37 am

    Make this for Super Nintendo. The cartridges would sell like hotcakes!

  • buffetboy

    April 18, 2013 at 2:18 am

    Ahahahahaha! Santa Claus as a snowboard, LOL! ๐Ÿ˜€ Can’t wait to play it!

  • Stefanoragnopazzo

    April 18, 2013 at 2:33 am

    Maybe to the SNES, this seems like 16 bit not 8.

  • April 18, 2013 at 2:34 am

    This game should have an insanely hard, really unfair difficulty to choose. There’s just not enough shit flying around on the screen!;D

  • nintendoaddict1

    April 18, 2013 at 4:41 am

    Nice! I think there were influences from the Castlevania series for this game.

  • Raphael

    April 18, 2013 at 4:56 am

    Amazing! Can’t wait for this.
    Man, someone should create Cinemassacre Tournament Fighter. Imagine such epic fights as Glitch Gremlin vs AVGN, Motherfucker Mike vs Famicom Transformer, Bad Luck Bootsy vs Kyle or Mr Bucket vs Ninja from Ninja Gaiden Trilogy review…

  • Senna4ever

    April 18, 2013 at 5:46 am

    Some great references to previous AVGN episodes in the game.

    I hope they include Mrs. Tits from Action 52 as a sprite.
    And Shitpickle.

  • Bamahut

    April 18, 2013 at 8:17 am

    Just awesome! So much anger!

  • kingrooster9

    April 18, 2013 at 8:44 am

    There’s s**t in the foreground obstructing your view of platforms and enemies?!?! ……….CAN’T WAIT to taste the major suckage!!! Seriously though, If not a port to SNES then I would really like to see a hard copy of some sort. We need something to add to our collections and/or have the F***in’ Nerd sign.

  • Panagiotis Zografos

    April 18, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Hey this looks pretty cool!

  • Daemon009

    April 18, 2013 at 10:36 am

    It would be a lot better if the Nerd could shoot in 8 directions like in Contra or Super Metroid ๐Ÿ™‚

    You should also add more stuff from the actual Show, like the Superscope, and the whole Nerd battle costume (with power pad and that helmet thing), pink/baby blue tanks, the glitch gremlin, Shit pickle etc.

  • stoney_1

    April 18, 2013 at 11:08 am

    please tell me this is a game i can really play?? cuz i wanna!!

  • Tjalfe

    April 18, 2013 at 11:19 am

    35 seconds of obnoxous VERY loud commercial, and I turned adblock off to support cinemassacre… I don’t know what to do now…

  • thepr

    April 18, 2013 at 11:51 am

    The final boss should be the Nostalgia Critic. Just saying.

  • April 18, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    What platform will it support? If it’s for PC then there MUST be a Linux version ๐Ÿ˜›

  • April 18, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    looks like a mixing pot of games, like i can see some mega man action mixed with some kirby cute monster and some mario art style and its going to have levels like silver surfer and great other games so if you good at classic video games you should be able to beat this game if not your going to have some issues! but all and all it looks like its going to be a great game

  • mmmfloorpie

    April 18, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    Another lame attempt by Stuttering Craig to make money off the nerd.

  • adder_doner2

    April 18, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    My only real gripe is, as a strongly Nintendo based homage, you what never see such gratuitous violence of someone riding a bloody corpse down a hill with a big blood trail behind it. Love the idea of the game itself though.

  • April 18, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Anyone who likes this game and want more should also try GAME OVER if you havenยดt already: http://cinemassacre.com/2009/01/19/11909-avgn-game-over-by-gavin-maclean/

  • April 18, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    Scrotum guns!!!

  • nate ?

    April 18, 2013 at 8:18 pm

  • james sparks

    April 19, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    doesn’t look NES to me looks like it could be one the SNES the graphics are way to high there are levels that scroll way to fast and the resolution is much to high for the NES to handle looks awesome though i hope to find one complete in the box

  • james sparks

    April 19, 2013 at 10:02 pm

    plus all the blood and guts remind me of splatterhouse

  • ALF4Reals

    April 19, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    holy Sh!t Pickle this looks amazing

  • deusprogrammer

    April 20, 2013 at 4:36 am

    I will buy it, but only if it has scrotum guns.

  • Gaming Man

    April 21, 2013 at 4:49 pm


  • April 21, 2013 at 11:21 pm

    They should’ve used more AVGN references…

  • Zukovius

    April 22, 2013 at 4:22 am

    This game looks awesome…and it has SCROTUM GUNS!!!

  • April 26, 2013 at 10:49 am

    I find at least 5 things that the AVGN probably will hate about this game, but for me, IT LOOKS AWESOME !!!!

    ps: it would be very cool that the AVGN, make a video playing this game !!!!
