      well done james!

    • Chaos_Emeralds

      November 10, 2014 at 6:27 am

      Just wanted to say that i really appreciate MIKE. he is a good friend and although u could tell that James was frustrated, he still kept encouraging him to finish the level and look what happened! Ive never had a friend like that, but hopefully one day i will.

      • sirensofsilence

        November 12, 2014 at 4:10 am

        I agree with you, Chaos Emeralds. He’s always been really encouraging and he’s clearly a great friend of James’. Good on you, Mike!

        That’s sad

      • November 22, 2014 at 4:20 pm

        haha, yea my friend would probably laugh at me every time i died and say that a fucking suck…. i have great friends lolz

  • November 10, 2014 at 5:45 am

    Fuck the Turd-o Tunnel

  • November 10, 2014 at 5:58 am

    Well that was a frustrating watch – most of the time it has been quite clear what you’ve been doing wrong! After you worked out you needed to press forward to give the extra distance, you were either pressing back at the wrong time (when approaching the platform) or went too far so you didn’t have time to jump again!

    Good video regardless πŸ™‚

    • OKIGorgon

      November 11, 2014 at 12:55 pm

      Basing on how does D-pad of NES controller look like, I think it’s safer to assume, that he was accidentally pressing down when doing forward and thus falling through pit on the side of platform. I myself am able to get through jumping over pits wtihout moving forward at all (and when I do move forward, I usually overshoot it).

    • sirensofsilence

      November 12, 2014 at 4:13 am

      I disagree. I think James was landing OK but was jumping too soon after landing, so the amount of distance he was needing to jump was gradually becoming longer until eventually it was too long. When he finally did it he was in a more consistent rhythm (albeit he was right up against the screen) and therefore didn’t compromise the jumping distance. Anyway, it was a real kick when he finally did it!

      • April 26, 2015 at 8:43 am

        He’s also going WAAY to far to the sides while avoiding the walls. It makes him slow. I always nudged just a bit up and down, narrowly avoiding em. It’s a risk though.

  • November 10, 2014 at 6:06 am

    my comments don’t appear on the page

    • November 11, 2014 at 11:19 am

      That happens to me as well. Sometimes they appear and sometimes they don’t appear. I blame the glitch gremlin.

  • November 10, 2014 at 6:08 am

    way to go on beating not only the stupid jump part, but the whole fucking level..

  • Chaos_Emeralds

    November 10, 2014 at 6:12 am

    I like the videos, been watching the nerd for years, but James really needs to work on his gaming skillz, and yeah i said skillz with a Z.

  • November 10, 2014 at 6:26 am

    Wow, i was so excited at the end, but you did it James. I’m impressed and overjoyed πŸ˜€

  • Don Skiver

    November 10, 2014 at 6:27 am

    As a kid, it didn’t take me *too* long to beat the turbo tunnel, both getting the warp and finishing the stage (though getting the warp was much easier). However, the one stage that *I* always had trouble with was the stage where you had to race that rat down the elevator shaft to the explosives. That one almost always got me. Used to piss me off to no end. I’ve beaten it a handful of times as a kid, but by then I was beat to hell, had no lives, no continues, and so my next mistake in the next stage was usually my last.

    • Don Skiver

      November 10, 2014 at 6:43 am

      Fuck! I should have let the video finish! Great work beating the turbo tunnel james! You had a great coach who didn’t give up on you!

  • November 10, 2014 at 6:34 am

    Congrats on finally beating that level! Now to beat the rest of the game, lol. The turbo tunnel is actually one of the easiest levels in the game. My demon level was the spinning cogs level Clinger Winger.

  • Kevin violette

    November 10, 2014 at 6:42 am

    Hey James & Mike, the jumping part at the turbotunnel is much easier than you guys were making it out to be. Here’s the trick: The platforms are trapezoidal in shape meaning jumping from the top side of the level means you have to jump much farther than if you hug the bottom. You can even try this before getting on the bikes when you’re on foot-you can’t make the jump on foot if you’re all the way up but jumping across when you’re on the bottom of the screen is easy.

    Try the jumping part again but HUG THE BOTTOM! If you do this you don’t even have to push right on the D-pad to make it. Give it a shot!

  • Jim Barge

    November 10, 2014 at 7:31 am

    Well jeez, dudes! You sure know how to make a girl shit pants! Exciting vider. I foond myself on the edge of my undies. Thanks, guyth!!!

  • Fimbul

    November 10, 2014 at 7:44 am

    I fucking love J&MM. Conglaturations James!

  • November 10, 2014 at 7:47 am

    Phew…Thank God!

  • November 10, 2014 at 8:01 am

    rotfl. at the end of the video I become a sports play-by-play announcer yelling “HE DID IT! HE DID IT! JAMES ROLFE HAS FINALLY DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE!” *crowd cheers*

  • taykel

    November 10, 2014 at 8:13 am

    The pause beat is really catchy.

  • November 10, 2014 at 8:37 am

    That was some intense stuff right there. Who knew Mike would turn out to be such a Yoda?

    • Deathbringer

      November 10, 2014 at 1:49 pm

      Guess you never saw him play his favorite Atari game (Kaboom) or knew that he’s beaten Mike Tyson’s Punchout. Mike is pretty godly at at quite a few games.

  • Rick

    November 10, 2014 at 8:53 am

    NIIIIIIIIIIICEEEE! Another fuckin’ childhood trauma knocked off the list XD

  • November 10, 2014 at 9:08 am

    Here’s the trick to the exclamation point jumps. I figured this out back when I was a kid and I used to rent this game.
    Stay at the bottom of the screen. the platforms look as though they are rectangular but they are not.
    They are triangular and at the top and the middle you have very little space to land on.
    If you stay at the very bottom, this part is considerably more forgiving.
    You can give it a test before you are on the bikes to get an idea of the dimensions of the landing zones. If you walk up on the / part you will fall right through the platform, just like how the bile seemingly was falling through.
    Give it a shot.

  • November 10, 2014 at 9:15 am

    Now do the snake pit!

  • Joker83

    November 10, 2014 at 10:02 am

    That was awesome, the ending was the best!

  • Mikko

    November 10, 2014 at 10:19 am

    The sound of the nintendo controller’s plastic cracking, made my hands sweat. Congratulations.

  • November 10, 2014 at 10:29 am

    Good job James!

  • Entrenaturaleza

    November 10, 2014 at 10:42 am

    Great team you make guys

  • November 10, 2014 at 10:43 am

    Congratulations! Now beat Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde πŸ˜›

  • silverwings

    November 10, 2014 at 10:55 am

    I can see the problem you are having at those jumps, you are under-shooting them; you have to move a little more forward.

  • TheKingDuke

    November 10, 2014 at 11:15 am

    Way the go, James. Good video and a good timing too.
    *Thumbs Up*

    Now go rest our nerds !

  • November 10, 2014 at 11:27 am

    I know it’s silly because it’s just a game but I almost cried when Jame made it, haha! Way to go!

  • Big McLargehuge

    November 10, 2014 at 11:38 am

    I wish I had video proof of this, but I beat this game once circa 1992. I left my nintendo on continuously for almost a month and quite possibly loosened my TV screen from punching it repeatedly. This game caused me so much fucking anxiety. I’ll never forget the day I beat it though. I wasn’t even happy when I beat it, I was angry and exausted and relieved.

    Now I want to try it again, 22 years later. I’ll fucking record it this time!

  • barlitone

    November 10, 2014 at 12:02 pm

    At about 6:15, for one brief moment, Mike looks like a father who’s about to slap his kid (James) right upside the head for goofing off when he should be paying attention.

  • Weldin Dunn

    November 10, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    Yes! I finally beat this the other day.

  • November 10, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    Mike reminds me of a young Steve Buscemi in this video.

  • Thifurious

    November 10, 2014 at 12:44 pm

    Hahaha – congratulations James! πŸ™‚

    I love being able to look forward to Mondays. Thank you for that.

    And the text is located…right beneath two boobies. Real subtle, Rare.

  • November 10, 2014 at 1:20 pm

    The fact he did it without an emulator save state makes it that much more amazing. Thank you james for all your hard work, can’t wait to buy the avgn blu ray. Monster Madness was incredible thanks for reviewing “IT”.

  • alvaro contreras

    November 10, 2014 at 1:32 pm

    oh dear James, that’s the “graviton” my brother and me suffers the same thing, so we put that name to this strange force that suck you down, I hate it to.
    we’re your fans from chihuahua mexico.

  • November 10, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    I liked this video so much I am going to post a comment on here as well. I enjoy the chemistry that they have, and like how Mike doesn’t care how much James fails at the level. James and Mike Mondays Rule! You guys are doing us fellow gamers proud.

  • GameCom

    November 10, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    NICE JAMES! Man that was a good video!

  • CrushingC10996WM

    November 10, 2014 at 2:44 pm

    HOLY F***ING S***!!!!!!!!! Oh man, this is the most intense episode yet. James I’m so proud of you. You’ve inspired me to take on a demon that’s been haunting me for 5 years. I’m gonna go beat a certain game that I never could beat!

  • November 10, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Mike begins explaining.
    James bobs his head to the tune.
    “Are you paying attention?”
    These guys have great chemistry! πŸ˜€

    I beat the genesis version & I vowed to never play the game again. Too much pain.

    November 10, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    I’m so glad you didn’t give up james, it would have been a lame episode, seeing you making it was awesome !!! it’s the best james and mike monday so far!

  • artcrime

    November 10, 2014 at 3:15 pm

    James, you are hitting down and going out of bounds every time you fall through. I do it every time almost. You can even walk off the stage before you even get to the bikes by going too far down.

  • November 10, 2014 at 3:39 pm

    Magnificent! I was afraid you were going to end the video without conquering the level, but you did it. Well done.

    Have never beaten this but now I want to. gj

  • November 10, 2014 at 4:02 pm

    Congrats James. I know how brutal that turbo tunnel can be. But, if you ever play the turbo tunnel again try easing up on the controller. Relax a little bit. Drink one of those Rollin Rocks on the Rollin Rocker. It sounded like you were about to snap the damn controller in half- snap, crackle, and pop! Ease up and relax, like Mike. I wouldn’t be surprised if you had the whole damn D-pad pressed in during those ! jumps.

  • Goro3d

    November 10, 2014 at 5:23 pm

    Way to go James I was excited to see you did it after many years wahoo good job James!
    And also good job Mikes for coaching games you guys are an awesome team and a great video :)! look forward to seeing your next Monday and future AVGN video’s :)!

  • frostare

    November 10, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    Congrats! From what I’ve seen, this is a more worthy game to complete than Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. This was a chapter worth closing.

  • November 10, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    Damn great video, y’all. I actually cheered and clapped when you made it through the level. Awesome job!

  • Chauncey1

    November 10, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    You fucking did it!!

  • November 10, 2014 at 6:20 pm

  • encey

    November 10, 2014 at 6:22 pm

    Great video!!

  • November 10, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    The big thing on those jumps as I’m sure someone has said before now is that you have to aim for the bottom, not the middle or top. I learned that from either Nintendo Power or some other such magazine and it served me well. Even though I only beat this one time by pure luck, I always lost by not jumping or by slamming into things, rather than by missing jumps.

  • Rambowl

    November 10, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    The problem was the timing of your jumps. I never push forward, I just jump across each platform and pass that part every time.

  • Keenan Van der Griend

    November 10, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    Holy shit, please do more videos like this. Honestly it was entertainment in itself just watching the suspense. Tackle those childhood demons and kick their fuckin’ ass!

  • ForeShadow

    November 10, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    When you jump you can’t press up or down buttons else you fall to the background,

  • ForeShadow

    November 10, 2014 at 9:24 pm

    I’ve beaten the game a lot, but always had to use the warp on the snake level. I was unable to pass the snake level legit. The last stage of snakes was too much.

  • November 10, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    That last part of the video should have the Rocky theme song placed over it because you finally beat it, just like he finally ran up the stairs without stopping.

    That was such an awesome video, my heart was racing at the end so bad!

  • November 10, 2014 at 10:59 pm

    hey James/ mofo Mike
    get the 5 lives code by HOLDING Down +A+B then press start at the beginning and every game over screen. How about James finishes the entire game?

    November 11, 2014 at 12:39 am

    This doesn’t count. In order for you James to beat the turbo tunnel, you have to play it from beginning to end in one shot.

  • November 11, 2014 at 12:39 am

    This is awesome.

  • 8bit 8bit

    November 11, 2014 at 12:39 am

    The ending is so rad haha

  • colt

    November 11, 2014 at 12:40 am

    You can’t have Mike play half of the level for you to get you to a check point and then claim you beat the whole level.

    • November 11, 2014 at 12:49 am

      Great video. Very suspenseful and celebratory ending. Hope you guys keep playing and beat the entire game.

  • November 11, 2014 at 12:48 am

    Great job you can always do it your the FUCKIN NERD love your stuff Turbo Tunnel check

  • November 11, 2014 at 12:51 am

    Congrats James, I was waiting for the AVGN to come out and a profanity laced tirade to occur. WAy to stay the course.

  • Clover

    November 11, 2014 at 1:32 am

    I was actually laughing and smiling at the end of this vid! I’m so happy you got through it ^_^

  • Tross

    November 11, 2014 at 2:15 am

    Wow. You must be on cloud nine James. I’m happy for you. I was going to say to rejoice in the small victories, since I didn’t think you’d beat the whole stage, but you even managed that. Congrats man! I have demons from my childhood too, but not so much specific stages. Beating a Genesis game called Biohazard Battle(not affiliated with the Resident Evil series) is on my bucket list. In fact, seeing this vid makes me want to try again.

  • November 11, 2014 at 2:53 am

    That fucking part was the only time I ever had to call the Nintendo Power Line. Their advice was “You just gotta time it.” I’ll never forget that. I’ve never beaten that fucking thing… Maybe it’s time to go back to the past.

  • November 11, 2014 at 3:01 am

    I..Cant believe you beat that part, i couldnt do it as a kid and still cant but you inspire me to dust off the cartridge and try it again. Thank You James and Mike.

  • November 11, 2014 at 3:48 am

    The easiest way to get past those jumps is to move your bike to the bottom of the screen. Since the platforms are far wider at the bottom than the top you get a lot more time to get your timing right. You don’t need to move forward and back, just jump at the end of the platform. Pretty simple once you know what you’re doing.

    • November 11, 2014 at 4:04 am

      Also, the reason you were falling “through” the platforms was because you were pulling back after your jump and landing before the platform starts (if the graphics were better you’d land in the balls and smack into the front of the platform). Each platform is spaced about a jumps distance, so if you pull back and shorten your jump you fall short.

  • November 11, 2014 at 3:54 am

    I felt like I was moving at warp speed at the end there.

  • Kent Gissing

    November 11, 2014 at 6:58 am

    Lol, congratulations James. πŸ™‚ I got genuinely happy for you. I personally know a little something about having gaming-demons from the past that you need closure to. Like, I remember this kind of same shit, specifically from another game; in Tiny Toons 2 Montana’s Movie Madness for the Gameboy, there’s a stage like this as well and it works exactly the same way with the same kind of speed, the same kind of controls and the same kind of obstacles. And I hated it exactly the same kind of way. But I have beaten it since then and it felt so good… at that moment, you’re just like on top of the fuckin world! πŸ˜€

  • November 11, 2014 at 7:54 am

    Grats on beating a level thats been hounding you since childhood. Though surprised with this game pause music it wasn’t called hypnotoad.

    Great tutoring by mike, should of been a force ghost with the teachings you gave james.

  • Larry Hood

    November 11, 2014 at 1:44 pm

    James dancing to the pause music over and over makes this video great.

  • Larry Hood

    November 11, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    This may be the best Monday video yet. Only a couple of others made me have spasms of joy or disappointment like this one. Seeing the huge smile on James face when he did it was priceless.

    James greatest achievement. I think that’s the most excited I’ve ever him. Hope they’ll play the rest of the game now. I’m hooked.

  • greedo

    November 11, 2014 at 6:59 pm

    Congrats on beating the Turbo Tunnel! It was a close one, but you managed to pull that off! Seriously, towards the end, I was certain that you weren’t going to make it. But I’m glad that you finally beat one of your childhood demons! Now, if you could only beat Ninja Gaiden, you’d be all set! πŸ™‚

    (Speaking of which, that’s one classic video gaming challenge I was never able to pull off. Never got past those stupid flying ninja. Were the developers on acid when they created those? Seriously).

  • November 11, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Grumpy Mama Mike, looking out for James. “James… James… are you paying attention? I’m trying to show you.” lol

  • Santa Horse

    November 11, 2014 at 7:33 pm

    Well done, James. It took me weeks to beat that fucking tunnel on the Genesis version.

    • Santa Horse

      November 11, 2014 at 7:33 pm

      And I died immediately on the next stage. This game, good as it is, is far too hard.

  • November 11, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    This is what a perfect Mondays video is guys, good job. James wasn’t going forward enough, thats the issue, the part where he pushes up is just that its taking away from the length of the jump. Anywhoooooo You guys should do the SNES version of this, Battelmaniacs. Its often overlooked but its the better game, the controls work and theres a 2p mode where you don’t kill each other. of course coordinating two people for the turbotunnel is still sort of impossible.

  • legacy81

    November 11, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    me and my friend beat the turbo tunnel on 2 player…it did take a bit of practice but it is possible. we were prolly 10-12 years old at the time…but i am living evidence it can be done πŸ™‚

  • November 11, 2014 at 10:05 pm

    Dudes, there was a palpable frustration in the room watching that video and everyone went bonkers when you finally made it. I can’t remember the last time an internet video made me cheer in real life, thank you for this.

  • November 11, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    So frustrating watching this video. It’s so obvious what you are doing wrong (pushing down when you are smashing the controller to hell so you move towards the bottom of the screen and miss the jump) I just wanted to dive into my screen and yell at both of you lol

  • November 12, 2014 at 5:26 am

    I was stuck at the same part James was, though don’t have the means to properly go back and achieve victory. My crowning NES moment still remains beating Contra co-op without the Konami code around the age of 9.

  • Tommi Heikkinen

    November 12, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    Turbo Tunnel is just a warm up for the rest of the game πŸ˜› Anyone who’s taken the crusade knows this…

  • November 12, 2014 at 3:05 pm

    Well Done James,I actually stood up and cheered when you finally made it at the end.
    Nice work.

  • November 12, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    How about a Turbo Tunnel atlas video?

  • November 12, 2014 at 9:28 pm

    Congrats James !!!!
    Must feel soooo good after all these years !

  • November 12, 2014 at 10:20 pm

    You were way too high up. The platforms are narrowest at the top, and widest at the bottom.

    Junior! You did it! -Dr. Jones

  • November 13, 2014 at 10:42 pm

    I’m pretty sure someone must have already said this, but the trick to the “!” jumps is to get down on the lowest part of the platform. You can see there is a long stretch of land to ride across, so that gives you more time to jump and more space to land. Once I figured that out as a kid that part of the turbo tunnel give me zero problems!

    Also, if you think the Turbo Tunnel is bad just wait until the Fire Zone or the incredibly hard Clinger Winger stage.

    Awesome James! I believe the reason why you were falling was because you were jumping too early. You succeeded when you started pressing more forward because then you were ending up closer to the edge before jumping. In any case, well done!

    Man you guys are BAD at this game, it took me a week to get past the turbo tunnel.

  • November 15, 2014 at 1:29 am

    Watching James play this is like nails on a chalkboard. I want to see him do it but the fails over and over on a not really hard part is painful…

    I feel all your pain! I remember as a kid, blowing about $80.00 on this game when it was brand new. That was money I had been saving forever, it was the most money I ever had. Got home, got to the Turbo Tunnel. Got pissed! I couldn’t beat it, my Uncle couldn’t beat it, nobody that I knew could beat it. So I just did the next best thing, used Game Genie. I found no satisfaction in it, felt too cheap and dirty. Because of this episode, I’ve now found the encouragement to go back and right some wrongs.

    Man, trust me, I know exactly what sort of pain you’ve gone through all these years and how fucking amazing a feeling it is to have finally, after so long, finished the goddamn stage. Congratulations, James. Hate to crash the victory, but there’s still a long, long road ahead of you if you want to actually finish the game, and unfortunately, the Turbo Tunnel is nothing like what you’ll be facing later on. Still, it was a victory nonetheless and that alone is an accomplishment that deserves praise. Well done. Mike, you’re great at giving instructional commentary and you’re a very good supportive friend to have walked James through this. Fantastic job, guys. πŸ™‚

    MY god… I was screaming at the end… Congrats!
    Dude.. You can Never land behind the spot you started the jump.
    hehehe I’m still stuck on the “pippe whater lvl”
    Mike is right.. Is all about practice!

    Great job, James! I know that feeling of breaking your ass, to get to the bikes, die, try to figure out what you’re doing, die, make headway on a fluke, die and then have to start over. It’s so frustrating! I had a good friend like Mike coach me through it, too. When you’re in the air, you want to go as far forward as you can, but can’t go too far in case you’re too far up or down, and if you didn’t go as high as you thought you should have, you want to be really far forward, but then you don’t have time to dodge whatever is being dumped in your face… Anyway, it’s a pain in the ass, and you guys did it! Thanks for the excellent show!

    you guys wont read this but seriously, dont fucking use the d pad on those jumps! you just press a 5 times. your making an easy part really hard by pressing left and right. extremely painful for me to watch you guys make that part way harder then it needs to be…

  • November 21, 2014 at 12:32 am

    Well that was one of the best gaming related videos I’ve seen in some time. Somebody trying to get a gamaing related monkey off of their back, and their pal helping them through it and never giving up. Reminds me of old times…

    Very well done.

  • November 22, 2014 at 4:23 pm

It should say Nintendo on front and on the back…Sometimes your just gonna F#*&^% DIE!!! lol…Glad you finally bested the beast James. GREAT video guys. I know that feeling when you FINALLY get it ya know?

  • November 25, 2014 at 4:31 am

    nice work, but the turbo tunnel is, honestly, the 3rd easiest level on the game and, really, isn’t very hard at all. i don’t know why hardly anyone I know can beat it.

  • November 25, 2014 at 4:38 am

    you don’t have to manually move forward during the ! portion of the stage. just move your speeder to the bottom of the platforms.

    and, yes, i have videos of me beating this game, level-by-level. the inferno is the hardest stage, by far, in my opinion.

  • November 28, 2014 at 11:04 am

    This was probably one of the best videos I’ve seen put together on the site. Just the pure frustration of playing it over and over again and the utter joy when finally completing it were captured perfectly!

    All you have to do is stay to the bottom left and push A

    1:29 “What’s the point of the warp?”

    No point. Except you get to skip over the ice stage. I’d much rather skip that than Turbo Tunnel.

    The very end with the microphone seriously had me dying. That was absolutely hilarious lol. Congrats on beating it though!
