Abandoned AVGN Episode – Secret Scout

Mike Matei / April 30th, 2014

We are NOT counting this as an actual AVGN episode. It’s an abandoned video that was made a few years back but never finished.

      Yup, you wasted it on bullshit. For that you receive the cum-bucket reward.

        No reason to be an asshole, if he is excited it is better than being miserable, like you.

        do i detect a note of jealousy?

        @IMMA_ROCKER: No, but the point is Well Made. Declaring you’re first (when anyone with a function pair of eyes and a working brain can see) is a waste of a Coveted Spot.

        First Comments should be insightful, or funny. It should not be wasted on such inane frivolities, and if you’re going to be an Idiot, be prepared to get Blow Back.

    This is pretty awesome xDD
    I assume you never finished it because of the movie, right? 0:

  • April 30, 2014 at 1:00 pm

    Nice. You should finish it sometime.

    Never finished?

      😛 If you consider this to be on par with his usual work then you are insulting him

  • April 30, 2014 at 1:23 pm

    How come it wasn’t finished?

    Probably good that this got abandoned. It just isn’t, how should I say, up to AVGN par.

    • Andrew Wood

      April 30, 2014 at 5:25 pm

      The reason it might not seem up to AVGN par is probably BECAUSE it wasn’t finished.

    Unfinished? This IS finished. There isnt a great need for animation, face time, or miscellaneous additions. I miss the simplicity in reviewing a game, in fact, you could fire more out while not reducing quality.

    • April 30, 2014 at 6:30 pm

      but avgn needs to show james face we need the expresions of the nerd and we need more than just a review cuz im a big fan and its boring just watching him review a regular nerd vid is better than this.

    I can probably see why you never finished it in the first place, but it is actually a good episode.

    Reminds me of and old style avgn vid, and I like it. Love to see you finish it someday, even if it’s only 10 minutes. It’s needs some nerd style punishment.

  • April 30, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    The episode isn´t half bad! 🙂

    This is going to be good

  • pokemario99

    that should not have been abandoned! that was good!

    Oh, man. I love you James, but it’s for the best that you abandoned this one.

    This would have been a decent episode, had it been finished. Maybe some day you can finish it up for us as a special treat or something. 😛

    LOL not bad actually. Seems like you could have put together a conclusion and called it complete, IMO.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of this game, looks so bad! Glad you showed us this, interesting to see the game and was still pretty funny

    This game is unholy shit from hell.

    It’s too bad you guys never finished this. You have the makings of a great episode, here!

  • May 1, 2014 at 2:39 am

    Yeah, it’s like the ghostbusters games, so little to talk about that you had all ghostbusters games at once, but this has no sequels.

    The only way to include this is by doing a Color Dreams dedicated episode, they did Super 3D Noah’s Ark after all they deserve some spanking…just saying.

    One of the games from my childhood I remember is Mulan from GB original. I hated it.

    I think I remember this from one of the DVDs. Actually, I know I do, but it’s good that it’s available to everyone now. I actually don’t think it’s bad. It’s just a little short.

  • JumpShouldNotBeUP

    Well, it’s short, but it doesn’t feel unfinished. Clear intro, structured narrative, and conclusion. Doesn’t feel like something is missing, per se. It’s more like a mini-episode.

    This game looks like someone crapped on a copy of River City Ransom. Thanks for the video!

    Why was this episode abandoned?

    Were you unhappy with the quality of the material?
    Did you find you didn’t have enough to say?
    Was it a result of personal events going on in life?

    From my perspective it seems like a perfectly normal old style episode of the game.

  • Mike E

    I thought this was the game was you get to (in theory, given this is Color Dreams) shoot down Sadam Hussein. Or was that a different game?

    I can see why this one was scrapped. Still entertaining though.

  • May 1, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    You should try and find a way to complete this episode, James. I think there’s enough good material here to make a full episode of it. Do you even remember why you originally abandoned it?

  • stephen mccord

    May 2, 2014 at 1:59 am

    I can see why it was abandoned. There was little to talk about, the jokes felt forced, and your disinterest in this title came though your commentary, There was nothing to work with as far as the Nerd is concerned. As much pride as you take in your work you probably realized that this just isn’t something you could make work. Thank you for a valiant attempt at trying to make this game into a nerd episode, but perhaps it was for the best.

      Do you guys…..ever….. get tired of blowing smoke up his ass?

  • May 2, 2014 at 8:09 am

    I saw the new trailer for the new godzilla movie and in the trailer the showed godzilla fighting a monster which look like rodan at the last part of the trailer.

    “That is one shitty way to select a turd!”

    One of the funniest quotes I’ve heard from AVGN in a while! this episode was worth salvaging for that alone!

    No boss battles? Lol, nice lost AVGN episode James 😀 looked verrrrry frustrating!

    “Rejects from Sunday Funday” Roflolol, I was thinking they looked like Sunday Funday fuckers. Need to blow their faces off on the way to church!!

    Recently the local news in Arizona ran a story on the Atari landfill full of E.T. carts. They’re stealing your thunder, James. It isn’t a coincidence. It is important to keep your ideas secret until they can be unveiled or else The Machine will steal every good idea you have.

    I liked this, I am sad you never completed it. It is nice to see an NES game get the treatment without it being tied in with something else. Like one of the earlier Nerd episodes. Would love to see you do just a shitty NES game again without a guest star, without it being part of a compilation and being a simple review.

  • May 7, 2014 at 5:52 am

    a game so shitty not even AVGN could release the final version.

      Very well played.

    This is actually really funny. The script is hilarious, especially the guy in shorts with the visor who looks like he just came out of a golfing course. It sucks you never finished it, the only reason I can assume you abandoned it is because of the quality, but quality doesn’t make something good. This is just good old fashioned reviewing, which is good! You don’t always need special effects and facial expressions.
