Thought I might see this after your Kaufman interview.
May 10, 2013 at 3:28 pm
Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringin home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, http://www.g00.me/Work

I don’t know who you are, but I will find you…
and I will poop on your porch…

Henry. I can see what your saying… Cheryl`s blurb is impressive… I just got a new Honda NSX after having made $7637 this last 5 weeks and a little over 10-k lass-month. it’s definitly the nicest job I’ve had. I actually started 10-months ago and almost immediately began to earn at least $86 per/hr. I follow this great link, Kℯℙ2.ℂoℳ

What a fucking turd, and I do mean the guest. Just fucking annoying and completely took away from the amazing game reviews
April 30, 2013 at 11:06 pm
First time I’ve commented, been watching for… Shit, six years? Jesus, I’m old. Keep it up man, I’ll keep tuning in.

nice to hear theme song again
July 3, 2013 at 5:19 pm
yeah i know its catchy i like it
September 16, 2013 at 2:23 pm
yeah i love it
April 30, 2013 at 11:11 pm
I’m happy that you did Troma NES style. Your videos always make my day better. Thanks
April 30, 2013 at 11:15 pm
first page status
April 30, 2013 at 11:21 pm
I was really surprised when I saw this, James! I recommended an AVGN episode about this game a long while back, and it’s neat to see it here.
April 30, 2013 at 11:25 pm
Lloyd Kaufman = age-progressed Bad Luck Bootsy.
May 1, 2013 at 1:18 pm
He could totally play a Bad Luck Bootsy from the future.
April 30, 2013 at 11:42 pm
Any video of the making.
April 30, 2013 at 11:53 pm
Grossest, funniest, weirdest episode ever! Now to be fair, the Toxic games are not really bad ones. You and I both know that, James, but you made the videos great beyond that fact. You made my day, James. Thank you, good sir! : )
April 30, 2013 at 11:54 pm
Holy crap, you got Lloyd Kaufman on the show! Amazing!
April 30, 2013 at 11:56 pm
“That’ll teach you, you fucking game”
I laughed very hard! Thank you that was such a funny ending. Awesome stuff man
oh my god the amount of awesomeness almost made my head explode!!!!!!!! and if im not mistaken isnt the ending a reference to the virtual boy review? “Waterworld on Virtual Boy! It’s like puking on a pile of shit!”
May 1, 2013 at 12:35 am
I thought that too! But I remember hearing that phrase in another video as well.
May 1, 2013 at 11:45 am
Yep, it also refers to playing Top Gun with the Power Glove :p
April 30, 2013 at 11:57 pm
Awesome video, Kaufman was hilarious!
April 30, 2013 at 11:59 pm
I’m only in the middle of the episode and I’m laughing my ass off! This is one of the BEST episodes yet! Congrats on getting Kaufman on AVGN!
May 1, 2013 at 12:00 am
lol, I like your comment about the 111th episode James. I Will never stop watching that’s for sure.
May 1, 2013 at 12:01 am
Truly kindred spirits
May 1, 2013 at 12:03 am
Next up: Roger Corman!

no Fred Fuchs
May 1, 2013 at 12:05 am
This episode was pretty funny.Although it was kind of loose ended in the mid section, the ending made me actually laugh out loud. I thought it was going ot be another “Someone shits on a game” ending but the throwing up was the icing on the cake. That was hilarious and a tad unexpected.
May 1, 2013 at 12:14 am
Fuck you idiots with your random comments, if your comments don’t include the fact that he has the greatest indie filmmaker of all time sitting on the couch, then you are pathetic. This is INSANELY EPIC to have Lloyd in an AVGN episode. Great job James, you actually surprised, shocked, and delighted me, and I am a longtime fan of 8 years.
May 1, 2013 at 12:33 am
Really? Putting down other people just because of the achievements of somebody? Every person deserves respect.
I’ve seen every episode……..and that was goddamn epic. LMFAO
Mr Kaufman and the nerd together in the new Avgn episode *MIND BLOWNED*
May 1, 2013 at 12:19 am
any chances of a behind the scenes for this?
May 1, 2013 at 12:20 am
Omg, this is one of the funniest AVGN episodes of all time. I literally was in tears and couldn’t breathe at the end.
May 1, 2013 at 12:26 am
Oh shit! I thought Mr. Kaufman would only agree to be interviewed and that was it. But when you said he was next to you, I instantly believed it.
Instantly, I know how far your influences reach. But still, congrats man this was great!
May 1, 2013 at 12:28 am
One of the best videos of AVGN!!!
So freaking funny!
But I would like to ask if you made up a script for this episode or do you improvised the whole video??? because is so funny!!!
You’re the best Nerd, and my best wishes for Lloyd Kaufman is so cool that he does the video with you!
Regards from Mexico City
May 1, 2013 at 12:29 am
i just finished eating, then i got to the shit
I dunno but it has been feeling a bit awkward for me in the last two episodes when you give your guest screen time since their style crashes with yours but still, there are moments when they genuinely make me crack
May 1, 2013 at 5:39 pm
I agree. Funny episode, no doubt, but not a fan of seeing poop and vomit on screen. I guess there HAS been an influx of younger fans lately…
May 4, 2013 at 8:57 am
I agree. The episode was still good, but the styles do clash a bit. Still, what a monumental moment in AVGN history.
May 1, 2013 at 12:44 am
Actually, I’ve always used my right index finger and right ring finger for the B & A buttons on the NES controller. It’s so much faster than using your thumbs.
May 1, 2013 at 1:01 am
That was great James!
May 1, 2013 at 1:02 am
May 1, 2013 at 1:05 am
Why was my comment deleted?
Personally this is probably my least favorite ep out of all of them. I don’t really like other characters copying your style. Also this was really akward to watch and for me wasn’t all that funny. If it was just James doing it that would have made it doable.
May 2, 2013 at 11:34 pm
‘other characters copying your style’? You obviously don’t know anything about Lloyd Kaufman if you truly believe that was what he was doing.
May 1, 2013 at 1:09 am
Kaufman looks like Don Adams with Mel Brooks’ voice and the sense of humor of a middle school student in the 90s. Loved it.
May 1, 2013 at 1:26 am
That’s a fucking classic. “I think I’ve got some dust in my asshole.”
May 1, 2013 at 1:41 am
Kaufman is pretty funny for an old guy.
May 1, 2013 at 1:46 am
My new favorite nerd!
May 1, 2013 at 1:58 am
Loved it keep it up mang
May 1, 2013 at 2:13 am
Rofl puke/shit combo
May 1, 2013 at 2:30 am
None of this is clever or funny. I was anticipating something that could at least keep me occupied for a few minutes, but I just got bored and annoyed at this video. “I can’t believe an old person just said that!” as a humorous sentiment lost its charm back in the 90’s.
I’d complain about the “humor” in this episode basically being a bunch of penis jokes, but I can’t even call them penis jokes. A joke has a setup and a payoff. These are just penis statements.
May 1, 2013 at 9:18 am
AVGN IS CLEVER,FUNNY,POPULAR,SMART,AND ORIGINAL!! Shake yourself crippen and stay off cinemassacre!!! before hate on movies and games you haven’t seen or played you’re about 19 years old or younger I bet money on it!!!
May 1, 2013 at 1:02 pm
And YOU shouldn’t hate on someone for having an opinion.
I wasn’t really entertained by this episode either. Personally I find James Retrospective(Double Vision, CD-I) and Cinematic(Ninja Gaiden, Nintendo World Championship) episodes much more enjoyable. In those you have a entertaining story or narrative if the humor falls flat.
May 4, 2013 at 3:04 pm
I agree. couldn’t have said it better myself. I hope James read these comments..
May 29, 2013 at 12:10 am
I’m sorry, but I agree. This is where I relized James may be having a dry spell. He hasn’t lost it, it’s just a dry spell.
May 1, 2013 at 2:36 am
Oh my goodness I’m only 10 minutes in and I’m crying with laughter. This might be my new favorite AVGN episode.
Also, I’ve never seen ANYBODY up-stage the nerd in cursing before and it is GLORIOUS!
May 1, 2013 at 3:07 am
This was foul and gross…loved it. Perfect fit for Toxy.
That was so amazing I had to make an account to state my awe. Lloyd Kaufman was amazing and you, James, are brilliant! I’ll have to start pulling some overtime to contribute to see more of your work; Please keep it up and Super Congrats 64 on the announcement of the baby!
May 1, 2013 at 3:26 am
Holy shit that was awesome.
May 1, 2013 at 3:42 am
Brilliant episode James and Mike. Lloyd is a natural AVGN partner no? you guys work so well as a double act. Would love to see you work with him more often.
Put him in the film?
May 1, 2013 at 3:52 am
With the AVGN movie on the way I figured there could not possibly be anything else you could do that would amaze me but once again you have made my jaw drop keep it up nerd every video is solid gold to a geek like me
May 1, 2013 at 4:12 am
Really Funny, I love this episode:D Lloyd is THE MAN:DD i didnt like the humor of the ikari warriors episode that much, but this one is great and a could become a classic nerd video
May 1, 2013 at 4:22 am
To short,it was more like a comedy than a actual review,but it’s ok i guess 🙁
May 1, 2013 at 4:34 am
Toxic Avenger 1 & 4 are the best. The world need more Evil Kabukiman.
May 1, 2013 at 4:49 am
Melted chocolate chips & split pea soup.
May 1, 2013 at 4:59 am
THIS IS… FUCKING AWESOME JAMES AND KAUFMAN IN AN EPISODE!! FUUUUUUUCK!
May 1, 2013 at 5:09 am
Great episode! Really cool to see Loyd in one of your videos again! Please do release a making of this episode, I’m gonna go ahead and guess Loyd improvises a lot and cracked you up too many times causing you to break character. Go Toxie!
May 1, 2013 at 5:10 am
I’ve been lurking since the beginning…but this episode demands a tangible response. Some of the things the lines from that old man caught me off guard. High-lair-eous. *Slow/loud golf clap*
May 1, 2013 at 5:25 am
WOW! this is crazy! Lloyd Kaufman in person! I know it’s not quite like having Brad Pitt in the room with you but still, talk about unexpected
this your version James of the time Mara Wilson showed up in a Nostalgia Critic episode
May 1, 2013 at 5:27 am
I’m glad to see the themesong back, and the showcase of the fanarts is awesome, I saw a couple of my favorites there (the japanese one, in which the Nerd has Boo on his shoulder. I love that one)
I guessed who the guest was going to be the moment I saw the title of the episode. Lloyd Kaufman is hilarious, he’s very quick-minded and he’s really good at improvising jokes, I think James reactions felt a little more natural than in the last episode. I liked that.
But I admit I did have some problems with the episode.
I would have liked if you explained a little more about the movie and the cartoon before going into the game (I usually enjoy the informative parts of the reviews, I think they balance out the humor), I’m not familiar with Troma and felt a little left out the joke at times.
I didn’t like the pace of the episode. There was no build up to the appearance of the guest, and as hilarious as Lloyd Kaufman was, I feel he was overwhelming at times. All very quick jokes, one after another, without any time to recover.
I had some good laughs at Lloyd Kaufman’s jokes, because he’s hysterical, and it’s really awesome that he took the time to do this cameo, but he’s so good at it, that he ended up stealing the show to the point I was left missing the Nerd.
The one problem I have with episodes with guests is that I feel James’ favors improvisation when he has a guest, but I think he’s at his best when he’s following a script (and I mean it the best way possible, I love his scripts!).
Having guests is great to break the formula once in a while, but I really hope the next episode is AVGN alone.
Either way, it was great having something special like this, specially because I know it’s a busy, stressful times for James.
May 1, 2013 at 8:42 pm
I agree on all the points you made. I think everyone here is a little star-struck by Kaufman. If no one knew who he was, I highly doubt many people would find this more funny than it was just tedious and irritating. I am a huge, HUGE James Rolfe fan. I’ve even met him in person. But this is the first episode that I can say I just didn’t enjoy. I definitely commend James on his willingness to experiment and keep things fresh, but this was not the right direction in my opinion. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next though!! 😀
May 1, 2013 at 5:30 am
Jesus H Shit!! Bravo sir, Bravo
May 1, 2013 at 5:58 am
I can take a lot, but the last part even made me sick.
May 1, 2013 at 8:50 pm
Yeah I have a crippling phobia of vomit… so I’m always disappointed when there’s puke in AVGN, cause I can’t even watch that part. The trailer for the movie made me so sad in this regard. But obviously I can’t expect James to cater to my weird phobias, so oh well. At least James does puke so over the top and fake that it’s not as frightening for me as something more realistic. Still gross though.
May 1, 2013 at 6:04 am
it’s three in the morning in california and i think i just woke up my roommates from laughing so hard and then coughing/gagging at the end. awesome video, it was a great surprise.
May 1, 2013 at 6:06 am
I was so shocked to see a celebrity on your show!!
Good job man, haha, the episode wasn’t bad!
Jokes from Lloyd were a bit odd most of the time, but his body movements and expressions were really good.
May 1, 2013 at 6:09 am
F*cking hilarious and epic!!
I only knew The Toxic Avengers from the videostore back when I was a kid (like 20 years ago) and I never saw the movies but it still has some nostalgia for me in a way, just because of Toxie’s image. Really loved this episode and the cameo of mr. Kaufman and what a fresh breath of air compared with the last episode…
Thanks James and again, for the 110th time, an excellent episode!
May 1, 2013 at 6:39 am
This is probably one of the strangest videos you’ve ever made XD
It’s a good episode tough, despite all the randomness ^^
May 1, 2013 at 6:42 am
After your interview with Lloyd, I thought the nerd would make a cameo in a Troma movie. Surprise !
Mr Kaufman is an hilarious fellow. “Used tampons” as a background made me laugh out loud. I think you both have a very similar taste in humor. That’s awesome and it fitted the video.
I find that the guest appearances in the nerd’s episodes are refreshing and original. While I do prefer the classic setup, I can appreciate this variation.
Thank you for the entertainment !
May 1, 2013 at 6:49 am
Didn’t like this episode very much. Lloyd Kaufman is not much of a great actor and it wasn’t much about the game itself. Like the episode more were you play just by yourself.
May 1, 2013 at 7:09 am
It made my day. Great video, Cinemassacre!
I love how Lloyd Kaufman says such things with that normalcy. lol
May 1, 2013 at 7:30 am
OK, this made me laugh. hahaha
May 1, 2013 at 7:32 am
Oh dear god. I was in the middle of eating my breakfast when I got to the end with the puking on a pile of shit. Grossed me out big time, but I loved the episode! I can’t believe you got Lloyd Kaufman to do an episode of AVGN. It makes me wonder if he’s watched/liked any of your other films. Hell, has he seen a rough cut of the movie?! Does he love it?! My hat is off to you, James. You’ve managed to outdo yourself, yet again! Congratulations on your hundred-and-eleventieth episode!!
May 1, 2013 at 7:54 am
Never in my wildest knightmares did I think I would ever See Lloyd Kaufman do that in a video…
May 1, 2013 at 8:21 am
I don’t know how you guys find the time to make all this. Good work.
May 1, 2013 at 8:45 am
ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the show rented this turd and was heartbroken. My weekend lost. Unless I could make the game not work and complain to my mom and have her take me to exchange it. So I took a screw driver to the chip then dunk it in the toilet. Perfect it didn’t work on my NES. We go to the store they try it on their demo NES and the MotherFucker Worked. I was baffled and doomed to spend the rest of the weekend with it. Thankfully I’ve blacked out much of the actual gameplay memories but not the ordeal as a whole. can’t wait to watch this. James Congrats on the baby and keep going forever. I will check this site daily wherever I am, so far I’ve watched AVGN in 4 countries and will continue spreading the love.
May 1, 2013 at 8:46 am
I understand that Lloyd couldn’t stay at his place for days, that’s why this feels unpolished and is kinda hit & miss. Not a very good performance from James, it feels like he’s there just to support Lloyd and the nerd character is forgotten. Lloyd does his best, but James should’ve filmed more takes with him and I bet it would have resulted in some very good ones because a lot of it seems to rely on improvisation. But like I said, they probably had very little time.
May 1, 2013 at 8:53 am
What can I say James that your nation of fans haven’t already. Every game review that you have done is totally 100%better than every review I’ve ever seen, pat and the critic are really great to, never will they ever be AVGN!! The best/worst games I ever owned killed my gaming spirit now I am a sports gamer long live MLB THE SHOW!! Death to kings of the beach!!Son of a beach!!Fuck the beach!!
May 1, 2013 at 9:07 am
I’ll have to try the NES game with the select “trick”. I wonder if Dr. Killemoff is in any of these games? I remember sending a drawing of him to a kids’ tv show when I was like 3 or 4 years old. I even wrote his name in it, not knowing what it means of course (I am Finnish).
May 1, 2013 at 9:20 am
Nasty! – I love it….
May 1, 2013 at 9:24 am
Kaufman , AWESOME!
May 1, 2013 at 9:28 am
What’s up Mike don’t want to leave you out bro great artwork great reviews of your own loved the phantomile review played the game after I saw you’re review very fun game but way better review fo show!!
May 1, 2013 at 9:37 am
wow that guy is a trip. kinda like a crazy Mel Brooks in a cool way. I’d like to have a beer with him
May 1, 2013 at 9:53 am
That was fucking awesome. I haven’t heard about Lloyd Kaufmann before but he reminds me a lot of a cross between Mel Brooks and Don Vito, no hard feelings 😉
May 1, 2013 at 9:58 am
Holy shit that was funny. This really made my day. It’s still snowing in Minnesota.
May 1, 2013 at 10:25 am
I first saw the Toxic Avenger when I was 13 years old in 1992. I thought it was the greatest movie ever made. 20 years later, I still do. Lloyd Kaufman is like the crazy uncle I wish I had.
May 1, 2013 at 10:57 am
Holy Shit!! THE Lloyd Kaufman! Impressive episode dude!
May 1, 2013 at 11:13 am
FUUUCK YEEEAAAAHHH!!! *Starts chanting “Avgn”*
May 1, 2013 at 11:23 am
Ok, this is the first AVGN episode ever I had trouble watching through because it’s so boring and dumb. Lloyd is an awesome guy, being so cheery at this age, but come ON, those jokes were TERRIBLE.
May 1, 2013 at 11:38 am
Why I’m always eating something in this kind of episode… :S
May 1, 2013 at 11:43 am
Shit and Puke stew. … Magnificent!!
May 1, 2013 at 11:50 am
The ballsack sings at dawn
Well well well, it looks like you finally got around to answering my email in mail bag 7 harold, I dont see what the big deal is. All because colonial sanders is dead, doesnt mea you have to get a picture of the 15 piece bucket tattooed on your left nut and show it to the clerk in CVS. no matter they came after you with bats and pipes screaming ” who the fuck knows what a viaduct is?” I see how it is. I see how things are twisted. Little randy only wanted a tricycle. for halloween but instead he got a beating from uncle dick tips and he was never the same. never ask someone for their hand in marridge if they dont have hands.
All this aside, there are a few things we have to make clear
they call him “ballsack bobby” cause he once shoved a bag of reeses pieces into his nutsack and called it a “peanut butter smackdown”.
I dont want to see you homeless on the street waving your dick around like its the cuban flag yelling a kids to “play T ball down the road” wehre your dick was the bat.
and above all else try and remember this every time you take a shit, “through shit, piss puke or blood, the ginsburg rides tonight”
-Your old bowling pal,
P.S. I hear motherfucker mike roams this neck of the woods. if I see him, its about time old lenard down at the bar had someone to “tune the bitches” with if you catch the drift. he hasnt bee nthe same since the “ceral box express” of 1991. that and the time he clogged that mens room toilet in christmas tree shop cause he tried to play battleship with his own turds.
May 1, 2013 at 11:54 am
Registered for the sole purpose of commenting on this video–it was AMAZING! My favorite AVGNs are when you and Mike are able to interact, and I love the Board James episodes with you, MF Mike, and BL Bootsy. However, it was awesome the comedic chemistry you and Mr. Kaufman had in this video. More guest stars–BRING KAUFMAN BACK!
May 1, 2013 at 12:03 pm
THAT was fucking AWESOME!!!…Thanks James been dying for a new nerd episode!!! 🙂
May 1, 2013 at 12:04 pm
Great episode. Was totally shocked to see Kaufman as the extreme guy and the nerd being horrified by him.
And I squeeled when I saw my own fanart in the opening. So amazing.
May 1, 2013 at 12:16 pm
Great to have the theme song back! The fan art was likewise awesome.
Lloyd Kaufman is a certified lunatic-cum-genius. Agree that he needs to have a cameo in the AVGN movie. Can only hope that I will be as raunchy in my elder years…
May 1, 2013 at 12:17 pm
Yet another “American Movie” quote on this video. “They’re making a mockery of my words, man. This whole thing is turning out to be a theatrical mockery. You understand that, Mike?”
May 1, 2013 at 12:48 pm
Great fucking video I was cracking up all the way through at Lloyd’s comments .thanks for helping out James with this video and thank you James for another great fucking nerd vid.
May 1, 2013 at 12:51 pm
Opps I ment to say thanks to Lloyd for helping James make this video.
May 1, 2013 at 1:01 pm
That guy was not funny at all. I was hoping he’d shut the fuck up but instead he just ruined this AVGN episode.
May 2, 2013 at 6:38 am
Dude, he took a lot of acid in the 60’s 😛
Give him a break!
Instant classic episode! Great work! 🙂
