      Did you know that Nintendo eshop on 3ds is releasing nes games the nerd has done? simons quest, milons secret castle, ninja gaiden 3 to name a few. Wtf, but no Mario bros 3? Is Nintendo not familiar with the nerd at all and his warnings against the horrible misery they cause? Whats next, lester the unlikely 5 where there just send you a brown paper bag filled with diarrhea?

      • Graeme Gunn

        I’m 100% confident in saying that Nintendo doesn’t care about the Video Game Nerd reviews. Besides, they’re for comedic value (obviously they are bad games, but still).

      PS, Im starting a petition for the title cards to come back, we have the theme song, this is all that’s left. PLEASE MIKE PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!!! They weren’t a waste of time then and they are not a waste now, we nee you mike! Anyone with me?!?!?

        Mario 3 is there.I bought it about 3 weeks ago,it was released just before christmas i think.Shame there is no SNES games on eshop because I would love to play Super mario world from SNES.

      Big Ben is in Elizabeth Tower, they changed/gave it a name. (was just “Clock Tower” before)

    Hey James and Mike! Thanks for the video like always.

    I would love to see you guys play some game called Anubis 2 for the Wii. It’s soooooooooooo bad and I think it’s really close from Superman 64 bad. Look it up if you have some time, it’s a poor version of Super Mario 64 with many insane glitches. 😀

    And now mondays are AWESOME!

  • January 27, 2014 at 1:27 am

    Great video James and Mike! The Metal Slug series is so much fun; I never got to try the arcade machines but have on console.

    Just a bit of trivia; the tank you get through out the game was inspired by the anime Dominion Tank Police from the 80s, in which the main character Leona builds the same one named ‘Bonaparte’.

  • January 27, 2014 at 1:37 am

    We’ve talked about Metal Slug series with my friend just last week and now I’m opening Cinemassacre and what I see? Metal Slug review! Awesome timing.
    And with my other friend we just beat Contra and in progress of beating Super C, but we still suck ass lol.

  • January 27, 2014 at 1:54 am

    love me some metal slug, i never used the code the codes for konami games either

    hey james just an fyi the double dragon fighting game from the neo geo is on the play station network

  • January 27, 2014 at 2:00 am

    One of the best games ever for the Neo Geo Cd, great choice dudes

  • johnpseudo

    January 27, 2014 at 2:06 am

    Awesome ! I played this a while ago on an Emulator, it`s really a great game ! I just read that the NEO GEO CD-console did cost about 300$ when it was new and thought – well, that`s not that much. But if you compare it to the 78$ for an NES as shown in your Wish list episode … well yes, it was fucking expensive.

    • FJMcCloud

      January 27, 2014 at 2:47 am

      No, compared to 3DO ($700) and the original tray model Sega CD ($300) it was a bargain. You’re paying for a Neo-Geo (once $500) plus a CD-ROM drive and a bunch of RAM to act as a cartridge emulator. Fun fact: Neo-Geo CD has more RAM than a base model N64.

      Neo CD had a good run in Japan, with 3 unique versions on the market. (Only the second one came out here.) Those of us in-the-know were hoping for more (a cartridge port, a faster drive, and more RAM and….. well, it should have been a new system entirely), but it was positioned (ironically) as a cost-reduction instead of a new generation.

      In spite of itself, it’s hard to argue with that library of games.

      • johnpseudo

        January 27, 2014 at 2:37 pm

        Thanks for the additional infos ! Appreciated 🙂

  • FJMcCloud

    January 27, 2014 at 2:23 am

    1. Neo Geo CD was inteded to be the “budget” Neo-Geo for folks who could not afford the $200 cartridges. Neo CD games were (and still are) much cheaper. The only REAL cost is the load times.

    Neo-Geo CD was my first Neo Geo, too. And I DO have Double Dragon for it. 😉 (That game is also in the arcade.)

    2. There ARE a few Neo CD exclusives. Notably Iron Clad, Samurai Shodown RPG, and Crossed Swords 2. Also a few promo CDs like ADK World and Neo Geo CD Special.

    Many of the cartridge-to-CD ports have remixed soundtracks streaming off the disc (a la Sega CD, TurboDuo). In some cases these remixes are pretty bad (Last Resort, Fatal Fury Special) and in others they are quite good (the Samurai Shodown games). Consequently, the Wii “Samurai Shodown Anthology” even gives you the option to play with either cartridge or CD music.

    3. Reboots and disc errors are common with Neo Geo CD and some burned discs. With original discs it’s likely you hit a scratch or the laser needs some kind of adjustment. All the old optical drives drift over time. Or capacitors are going bad, which plagues some consoles like TurboDuo. Keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn’t get worse.

    4. Young viewers might wonder about game saves. Neo-Geo CD does NOT share the same memory card slot the cartridge system has. Its “battery RAM” is internal, not removable, but seems to be sufficient for many games.

    Next Monday – Contra with no code? Another freaking playthrough! 😮

  • Aaron1375

    January 27, 2014 at 2:47 am

    That sucks that the game crapped out…I was hoping to see you guys win the game. Looks like a fun one. Looking forward to Contra next week!

  • Fabian Kohen

    January 27, 2014 at 2:57 am

    Brings back memories from my years in Japan! I still play this game with my buddies. We need an updated Metal Slug.

    • FJMcCloud

      January 27, 2014 at 3:10 am

      Well, there are 7 in the mainstream series, plus various handheld and one-off ones. Which are your faves? Metal Slug 6 came out awhile ago on Atomiswave. It’s OK, but the high-res backgrounds ironically are not as good looking as the low-res ones.

      Many consider Metal Slug 3 the highlight of the series. Great game. X and 5 are pretty awesome, too.

  • remus jacobs

    January 27, 2014 at 3:21 am

    Metal slug probably is the best neo geo game. All the other games are fighting games and it seems like they all have a character named ryu in it.

    • January 27, 2014 at 3:41 am

      That’s pretty much how I feel about Neo Geo. I like a fighting game once in a blue moon. But I’m more into platformers, puzzle games, strategy games, shooters, sidescrollers and beat em ups. And Neo Geo barely has ANY of that stuff. It’s probably an awesome system for people who are really into fighting games. I picked up Metal Slug because it was one of the few games I could find for Neo Geo that wasn’t a fighting game.

      • FJMcCloud

        January 27, 2014 at 12:30 pm

        Mike, you’re not looking hard enough!

        Sidescroller? Try Magician Lord, Metal Slug 1-5 and X, Crossed Swords, Nam 1975, 8-Man, Cyber Lip
        Puzzle Games? Any of the Magical Drops, Puzzle Bobble, or Money Puzzle Exchanger
        Shooters? Andro Dunos, Sonic Wings, Last Resort, Pulstar, Blazing Star, Iron Clad, Strikers 1945, Viewpoint, Prehistoric Isle 2
        Overhead? Ninja Commando, Shock Troopers, Shock Troopers 2
        Beat-em Ups? Burning Fight, Ninja Combat, Mutation Nation, Sengoku 1-3, King of the Monsters 1-2.

        The bulk of these are available on CD, too. I would only categorize Neo-Geo as lacking in the RPG category, with only 1 (Japanese only) CD RPG. And even this makes sense given the arcade heritage.

      • . .

        January 27, 2014 at 1:53 pm

        Twinkle Star Sprites is a great NEOGEO-CD puzzle/shooter.
        It comes across as a kiddy anime style game, but if you get 2 players of the same skill level it gets pretty intense.

      • johnpseudo

        January 27, 2014 at 2:41 pm

        I`d love to see more NEOGEO-Games … would be cool if you could include some more in the J&M mondays or maybe a roundabout AVGN episode covering some more odd consoles and stuff.
        By the way, what happened to the “James & Mike play” intro ?! I miss the CHOMP CHOMP action …

  • Frow

    January 27, 2014 at 3:24 am

    James, if you like the Neo-Geo Double dragon, you should try The King of Fighters, that is a great fighting game.

  • January 27, 2014 at 4:03 am

    Dude when u get in the tank you gotta jam out bombs along w/ machineGun. Grenades bro

  • January 27, 2014 at 4:27 am

    All devices gets old after a while and they become defective. Not surprised that a neo geo cd which was available from 1994 to 1997 would become defective a little bit today.

    I’m actually afraid of the day my Playstation 2 will stop being functional… with my 150 PS2 games collection i’m pretty sure I don’t want a defective PS2…

  • Lukas Sprehn

    January 27, 2014 at 5:05 am

    From Big Ben’s Wikipedia page, “The tower is now officially called the Elizabeth Tower, after being renamed in 2012 (from “Clock Tower”) to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II.”

    Mike: pink tank fuck

  • Lukas Sprehn

    You should play The Neverhood. It is a point and click adventure game whose graphics were made through claymation. It was created by Doug TenNapel, the man who created the character, game and cartoon series of Earthworm Jim. He’s also done a fuck-ton of amazing and fun graphic novels and comics. One of those graphic novels, GEAR, which is about cats piloting giant robots that goes around and crushes other people’s cities, has gotten a lighthearted, animated adaptation of TenNapel’s graphic novel on Nickelodeon. Also, one of his most popular graphic novels, Ghostopolis, is getting a film adaptation, with Hugh Jackman producing and starring in it. The Neverhood is a great, imaginative and very inventive game. It is a bit of a cult classic today. It was distributed by Dreamworks at a time when they allowed a lot of independent artists and video game developers to create games for them to publish, however they lacked the experience in actually distributing these games, and that lack of knowledge led to the financial failure of The Neverhood, and its PlayStation platformer sequel Skullmonkeys. There’s one catch though! Neverhood’s on PC.

    Doug TenNapel and his friends Ed Schoenfield and Mike Dietz are in the process of creating a new claymation point and click adventure game right now titled Armikrog. Mike Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Riftrax voices the man character Tommynaut, while Rob Paulsen voices his pet and best friend, the alien dog Beak-Beak, who also happens to be kind of his drinking buddy. Ed and Mike taught Doug how to animate, both traditionally and with stop-motion. They are a great, creative team of friends, and I expect the game to turn out great. The game was funded through Kickstarter by the way. Here is the link to the fundraiser, though it’s already over I hope that you will do a play through or review of The Neverhood, and possibly Skullmonkeys, but I also hope that you will consider playing Armikrog once it comes out!

    • Lukas Sprehn

      January 27, 2014 at 5:16 am

      Forgot to mention that Beak-Beak is blind 🙂 Also, The Neverhood has a reputation as one of the greatest forgotten games, or greatest games that bombed financially. Gives you the more reason to try it out, I hope!

      • Lukas Sprehn

        January 27, 2014 at 5:23 am

        We should really have a way of editing our comments, I think 🙂 Anyway, I forgot to mention one last request, if I may. I’d like to hear if you would be interested in playing the original Earthworm Jim game, if you have it. When I say original, it doesn’t have to be on the original platform though, and I don’t even remember which platform that was. It was probably Windows PC. I think the game is available for SNES, but I am not sure. If you can get your hands on the game, try it out 🙂 There is also a new HD version, but I’ve not heard too many good things about it. Better stick to the original. Anyway, Earthworm Jim is probably one of the greatest games of the 1990s, and with good reasons. The absurd humor put into the game is just fantastic. The idea of a simple, normal earthworm getting a super suit in its head and mutating to a bigger, stronger and more intelligent being is ingenious. I have one question about that though: How does Jim control the arms and legs of the suit if he have none himself? Is it done via mind waves? The funny thing about Earthworm Jim is that it was kind of an accident. Doug has said in his book, Doug TenNapel Sketchbook Archives Volume 1, that it was just another character he happened to sketch on a piece of paper, and that he just happened to be plugged into one of the greatest games of the 1990s. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, if you get the chance, try the game out. Try out all the games I’ve mentioned 🙂

    I hope you guys do another long-play (not cut/shortened) video for Contra like you did with SuperC. You said you were worried it might be boring, but I think those are actually more fun.

  • Robert Nowacki

    January 27, 2014 at 5:28 am

    Is Mike singing “Bite it you scum” by GG Allin & The scumfucs? Becouse if he did it kinda blown my mind for some reason xD Gotta love those mondays;p

  • Flavio Fornetti

    January 27, 2014 at 5:58 am

    Am i the only one who gets pissed when the game have infinite continues. I mean it is still playable but the rush and the thrill of having a bullet barely missing you it’s just not there. They should make it optional in all of those arcade like games.

    • Lukas Sprehn

      January 27, 2014 at 6:25 am

      Actually, I am pretty sure most of us gamers want infinite continues. It’s one of those things we keep complaining about not being there after all…

    • FJMcCloud

      January 27, 2014 at 12:39 pm

      When you’re young you can accept a challenging game and master it.
      When you’re old you just want a quick play through with no artificial limits. (I bought the dang game to NOT have limited quarters, so let me play the dang game.)
      Conclusion: hard games are for little kids
      Conclusion: give me infinite continues

      By default, most Neo-Geo AES carts DO limit you to 4 credits. If you mod the system BIOS there’s a cheat engine to finally work around this stupid limit.

      By default, most Neo-Geo CD games do not have limited continues.
      Neo-Geo CD penalizes you instead with LONG load times, except on older games that fit in RAM.

    I would wager one of you two did a soft reset at the end, which is performed by pressing A+B+C+start simultaneously. It sounds like you were mashing all the buttons when it happened.

    January 27, 2014 at 6:58 am

    Metal Slug is a fun game. I love the cartoonish yet detailed and semi-realistic art style. The banter here was great, too. Too bad the game crapped out on you! Contra with no code next week! That should be good!

    Metal Slug is one of the best games I’ve ever played. I’m kind of surprised that Mike hasnt already played the shit out of it cause it’s one of those few games that really reward the player’s efforts. You should totally check out MS from 1 to 4. MS4 is very underrated but it’s awesome!

  • . .

    January 27, 2014 at 10:52 am

    The Metal Slug music always reiminds me of Back to the Future…

  • January 27, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    I had a theory that James and Mike Mondays were all filmed together, and just released weekly. I figured this cut production time allowing for more time to do other projects like post-production editing on the nerd movie. I looked back on the last few james and mike mondays to see that they all look different so my theory is wrong. Unless James and Mike are already a step ahead of me and change clothes and camera angles every time and even have a green screen that they can put different backgrounds in just so it looks like it is different. I think it would be a good idea to film them all at once, and maybe film more than is needed. Then you have flexibility. It is good to make it seem like it is not previously prepared though. The dead give away would be James gradual gain of weight. Putting on the pounds there, aint’cha buddy? Look at the old nerd videos. You were skinny then. What happened? Are we going to see the Nerd have vast weight fluctuations in the movie? Hahaha!

    January 27, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    You can play Metal Slug and alot of other games on the internet, for free. Also, there’s some ripoff I don’t remember the name of with similar graphics and gameplay. Perhaps it’s not a ripoff, perhaps the same people made it. Anyways, it’s fun, but hard.

    Wow i can’t believe you guys haven’t played Metal Slug more often! I definetly invite you to finish them all. Here’s why:
    + In Metal Slug 2 you have aliens
    + Metal Slug 3 has zombies and giant bugs
    + Metal slug 4 has supernatural powers

    and then I can’t remember any other he. It’s good to watch you guys playing and make a short clip. I feel that’s way better than a complete let’s play show with episodes for just one game. This is good enough 🙂

  • Super Drage

    January 27, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    The Jumping tank in this game reminds me of the tank/ hoovercar in the NES game called Blaster Master. One thing i found strange is the game Blaster Master JR on game boy. This game is not Blaster Master JR, but Robowarrior on gameboy. Why the called this game Blaster Master JR instead of Robowarrior is strange. Check it out guys… Thanks for good reviews….

    Contra on the NES is awesome, yes. But this game kicks it’s ass hardcore. If you still have a ps2 in working order, get the metal slug anthology. It’s cheap brand new, and has the first 6 metal slug games. It’s perfect for a night of drunken “bro”-op. Yes I said “bro”-op.

  • January 28, 2014 at 1:04 am

    James & Mike,

    I have seen a few requests for good and bad games to play in these comments. If I may suggest a couple, how’s about Carmageddon for a decent game (I’d love to hear you guys riff on the language used as well as how dated it is…yet how awesome at the same time) and for a bad game, Carmageddon 64. Thanks for doing these every week, I always look forward to it!

  • January 28, 2014 at 2:55 am

    The real challenge of the metal slugs is actually to make points. When you rescue a prisioner they stack in the bottom of the screen and if you finish without dying you get lots of points from them, and more if you finish with the tank. There are a couple of MS in playstation.

  • Cody Cable

    January 28, 2014 at 9:16 am

    Actually, Metal Slug can be finished on one quarter. It looks tough on your first playthrough but if you play carefully and methodically and acquire some practice it becomes fairly easy.

    Same can’t be said about the sequels. Metal Slug 2 upped the difficulty considerably, but Metal Slug 3 in particular was a coin guzzler. It was cool what they did with the theme, introducing zombies and monsters and whatnot, but the game was seriously frustrating and unfair.

    Metal Slug stayed my favorite, and I still fire it up from time to time.

    It’s probably been mentioned but NeoGeo CD wasn’t something that ran exclusives from the NeoGeo, both were supported at the same time. The CDs were way cheaper than buying the carts(which were , they would release a batch of the back catalog every year until it had all the games that the NeoGeo had. You basically gotta pick between load times and spending upwards of $100 when a new game came out

    Oh man, Contra next week? Awesome! I’m able to beat that game 99% of the time on one-player mode, but I’ve gotta imagine that two-player mode is going to be more of a challenge. Hope you can do it, guys. 😉

    Neo Geo CD was actually made just to be a cheaper alternative to the regular Neo Geo AES (The AES costs 600 or so with cartridges going for 200, while the Neo Geo CD was 400-500 with games at 50-70). The NGCD even came with regular controllers as opposed to the sticks you get with the AES.

    Cool video guys!
    I’m really looking forward till next Monday when you are playing Contra, with no code! 🙂
    Actually been hoping for that since you played Super C.
    You should totally do it like last time, you know with no editing but just one long take, cause that was awesome! 😉
    Keep up the good work!

    Love Metal Slug. The first three games are absolute masterpieces (with the third one, IMO, peaking as one of the best arcade games ever). The level of detail and charm is absolutely impressive. After the original incarnation of SNK went bankrupt, the series went downhill as expected, but the fifth one stands out as having I think the best soundtrack of all the games. As a Metalhead I’m sure James would like it too.

    Did motherfucker Mike just quote GG Allin with the line “Bite It You Scum”?

  • February 12, 2014 at 4:30 am

    Neo Geo CD was cheaper than regular Neo Geo. That was the point of it actually, because the original was so expensive

    I want you to picture a scorching hot italian summer. The kind of summer that melts your shoes into the asphalt. The kind of summer that makes you sweat just standing still in the shadows.

    Next, I want you to imagine a little fat kid. He lives ten minutes away from the beach. His mom drives him there every day, for the whole summer. All his friends are swimming, building sandcastles and getting into water baloon fights.

    But the little fat kid. He’s down at the arcade. Wasting all his coins on Metal Slug.

    I was that kid. And I regret nothing.
