    Intresting. I actually played this on PS3, the newer one and thought it was a pretty cool simplistic game.

    • March 2, 2015 at 5:26 am

      I dont like it when its more than 2 guys because the conversation gets hard to keep up with.

        Normally it doesn’t bother me, but I never liked JonTron. He’s annoying. It’s even worse when he’s drunk.

      • Smokingspoon

        I did laugh from this episode, but geez that guy is intense. James couldn’t place a single word lol… And yes, I said ‘lol’ when I actually didn’t ‘laugh out loud’

        Still, he’s better than Pat.. I can’t watch any mondays with that guy. But I prefer Bootsy, he’s calm and skillful at least.

      • March 19, 2015 at 2:05 pm

        Im agree with xzombiex1x, i dont like JonTron

      Not sure if B-man2 was on it, but I used to play Bomberman for turbografx16 a lot.

      my roomate’s step-mother makes $62 every hour on the internet . She has been without work for ten months but last month her pay was $18554 just working on the internet for a few hours. why not try this out


      • March 22, 2015 at 12:42 pm

        nah man I’m good, I don’t want to become a cam whore actually, I’ll leave that to your “roomate”s step-mom.
        Nice arithmetic’s btw; a couple of hours X 62 makes 18554?

    I love me some Bomberman, cool to see you guys like it too.

    Glad to see bomberman come up. One of my favorite characters of all time!

    Combining two of my favorite shows. Awesome team up, guys.

  • March 2, 2015 at 12:36 am

    HOLY!! SHIT!! JonTron is finally in James & Mike Mondays that’s really cool man!

  • GameCom

    March 2, 2015 at 12:47 am

    Awesome, that was amazing!

  • DarkSouske

    March 2, 2015 at 12:54 am

    It’s awesome to see you guys and Jontron! I’d like to see more with all 3 of you guys! That was great!

  • March 2, 2015 at 1:18 am

    Yeah, I might be able to come hang with you guys for an episode. You’ll have to let me know far in advance, of course. I’ll check with my people. If you guys really want to, I think I could make it happen. You’re welcome.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street for the NES also allowed you to play with 4 players at the same time. Too bad the gameplay really has nothing to do with A Nightmare on Elm Street… you can’t expect much from LJN.

  • March 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Weird.. For some reason the videos in doesn’t work for me at all. I can see the videos in YouTube though. There is no problem.

  • March 2, 2015 at 3:27 am

    Now we need a video with all four of you guys James,Mike,John,and Pat on the Four Score playing bomberman 2!

  • meanspirit

    March 2, 2015 at 4:10 am

    I don’t understand why Jon would think ‘lol’ is an expression to end a statement, like an acknowledging nod. Maybe I should try bursting out in laughter every time I’m acknowledging a comment in real life and see how that goes…

    • Zulli85

      March 2, 2015 at 4:14 am

      The thing is that is exactly how it feels after you’ve used lol a million times.

  • john lombardo

    March 2, 2015 at 6:10 am

    cool to see jontron

  • March 2, 2015 at 6:59 am

    Hell Yes…!!!! JonTron, The AVGN and Mike all at once.. Total mind blow.. Great idea you guys. Gotta do it again for sure.. AVGN episode or Board James with JT… What could possibly go wrong? Thanks guys..


    March 2, 2015 at 7:09 am

    Jon seems so humble. I also had a dream like this but with a monster made out of cheetos was there. This is so cool.

  • frostare

    March 2, 2015 at 7:43 am

    LOL I haven’t watched many Jontron stuff but I just freaking love how you guys interact… and the thumbnail, oh my god.

  • Slamraptor

    March 2, 2015 at 7:50 am

    Destroyer of friendships and one of the greatest multiplayer games of all time… n1 (:

  • Cball13

    March 2, 2015 at 8:16 am

    Big fan of the guest stars. Nice work, guys.

    As a side note… I’ve been an avid fan of this site since 2009, and now that you are regularly reviewing good games, I patiently await what I’m sure many of us want to see: LoZ: A Link to the Past.

    I understand it would be an exhausting endeavour, considering the length, but it the video would be the definition of epic.

    • Tom Veilleux

      March 4, 2015 at 1:40 am

      I agree. I really wnat them to play A Link to the Past! I’m one of the many who consider it the best video game ever made. I hope you guys do a full playthrough someday.

  • Griff

    March 2, 2015 at 9:32 am

    Jontron didn’t get to finish his thought but that’s a good point actually how LOL is more the internet equivalent of nodding your head or saying “uh-huh” than it means you’re literally laughing out loud.

  • Czab

    March 2, 2015 at 9:34 am

    I think Cinemassacre’s server is getting a bit crowded. The videos are loading really slow especially right after they come out. For example, now I can’t even see the picture, just sound.

  • Weldin Dunn

    March 2, 2015 at 11:50 am

    Oh wow. My brother is a big fan of johntron, and me of you guys. Perfect.

  • March 2, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    Btw. my neighbor’s kids also think the fire powerups are ghosts, that’s why I made them orange in my homebrew Bomberman 3 game. Also, Skulls give you different diseases, and the players change face colors in my version to show you what you got. And there’s two more diseases. And 8 levels. And lotsa options. And 4 players (Bomberman 2 supports 3). And every player can select his color. And a kill/death counter.

  • March 2, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    James is literally like Conan when it comes to video games :/

    • March 2, 2015 at 6:07 pm

      Three distinct and very likable personalities in this video. Great to see Jontron in there – you guys should make more material together. I’d love to see a proper Nerd crossover!

      • March 2, 2015 at 6:07 pm


  • March 2, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    stop making shit and keep on making avgn videos

  • Internoob

    March 2, 2015 at 4:21 pm

    I might get some flak for this comment, but I kinda wish these James and Mike Monday videos were just… James and Mike. Seems like every other episode they have some sort of “guest star” with them and they spend most of the time just talking, rather than playing and talking about the game they’re playing. I was fine with Bootsy being in a few episodes but I dunno, I’m not feeling it as much now. Just my two cents.

    Current list of Four score games (not including famicom titles)

    8-Bit Xmas 2011
    Bomberman II
    Championship Bowling [3]
    Danny Sullivan’s Indy Heat
    Gauntlet II
    Greg Norman’s Golf Power
    Harlem Globetrotters
    Kings of the Beach [4]
    Magic Johnson’s Fast Break
    Monster Truck Rally
    NES Play Action Football
    A Nightmare on Elm Street [5]
    Nintendo World Cup [6]
    R.C. Pro-Am II
    Rackets & Rivals
    Roundball: 2 on 2 Challenge
    Spot: The Video Game
    Smash TV
    Super Off Road
    Super Jeopardy!
    Super Spike V’Ball
    Swords and Serpents
    Top Players’ Tennis

    Seeing a four score Gauntlet 2 or Nightmare on elm street would be awesome.

    • Wayne

      March 2, 2015 at 7:27 pm

      My brother and I used to play Gauntlet and Gauntlet II at the arcade back in the 1980s. We usually played as the Wizard and the Warrior because of the magic strength and fighting strength the characters offered.

      Many times when we were playing, some random kid would join in and play as the Elf. The annoying thing was that he would go around taking all the food, potions, keys, and treasure before we had a chance to get to them because the Elf was so much faster than the other characters.

      I could see Gauntlet II for the NES being a fun game for James, Mike, and 2 guest players to try out with 4 players because most likely one of them will select the Elf and try to aggravate everyone by taking the power-ups and treasures before anyone else has a chance to get them.

  • March 2, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    FINALLY. I’v been waiting for JonTron and James to be in the same video forever.

  • March 2, 2015 at 5:07 pm


  • Andrew

    March 2, 2015 at 5:12 pm

    Can James and Jontron do an interview video?

  • Andrew Wood

    March 2, 2015 at 6:18 pm

    Well sorry I guess it wasn’t deleted. Mine was last time though.

      The comments system seems to swallow up comments that are made. I had a great one on Leonard Nimoy that I had typed up in the other thread disappear when I posted it. Seems like there’s a bug or two to work out.

  • March 2, 2015 at 7:45 pm

    All they need to do is a A Avgn/Jontron as Guest. That would Blow up alot of viewers

  • March 2, 2015 at 8:17 pm

    Man if you think the NES one is fun, you should try multiplayer Bomberman on PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16:

    Bomberman 94 Is Awesome

    March 2, 2015 at 11:08 pm

    Ok….that was…awesome! Really cool to see JonTron in the nerd room.

  • Kyle Smith

    March 3, 2015 at 12:34 am

    To hell with Jontron we want more Bootsy!

  • Zces

    March 3, 2015 at 1:03 am

    Real entertaining. Loved this game when I was a kid. Hehe, Texas Style! I tought it was Zelda or Metroids time to get played? 😉 Cinemassacre is great for your soul up here in bad weather Sweden!

  • Glorious Gerbil

    March 3, 2015 at 10:23 am

    Jontron eh….dont like him!

  • Gimpster

    March 3, 2015 at 3:35 pm

    fierce bangs, jontron

  • Links24

    March 3, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    pat seems like a dick to do that, i’m not a big fan of Jontron but he was enjoyable in this.

  • March 3, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    Next to this dude, James doesn’t look so grump.

  • An Heroic Hippo

    March 3, 2015 at 4:29 pm

    This was a really cool idea James. I hope he didn’t just play an hour of Bomberman then leave. It’d be cool if he was in a bunch of episodes. Next, I’d say you should contact Vinny from Vinesauce. He’s also in NY and would make for an hilarious guest.

  • Jack Ciavardini

    March 3, 2015 at 7:15 pm

    Please can you make an AVGN Jontron crossover episode? You two are so awesome, youre my two favorite game reviewers. It would be so cool if you collaborated!

  • wardrich

    March 3, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    This was one of (if not the) most hilarious Mike & James Mondays ever. Please invite Jon back more often!

  • gluserty

    March 3, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    I enjoyed the banter in this episode.

  • March 4, 2015 at 12:52 am

    Kinda funny JonTron cosigned James & Mike calling out Pat for his cheapness when JonTron did the same thing to Egoraptor during a Game Grumps VS ep featuring Nickelodeon GUTS on SNES. My, how soon we forget, JonTron…

  • Tom Veilleux

    March 4, 2015 at 1:43 am

    Actually, I think the posts that make it are just randomly chosen. I’ve made positive comments that didn’t make the cut. That, or it’s just some technical issue. They’re not censoring anything, man.

  • March 4, 2015 at 6:17 am

    Bomberman is so boring!!! I’ve never played it.

    • Highwing

      March 4, 2015 at 1:56 pm

      There are three (or more?) Bomberman games on N64 that had adventure modes which I remember being really fun. I have no idea which one I played. Bomberman Hero rings the loudest bell.

  • Highwing

    March 4, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    James and Mike: you should play the Legend of Zelda: Parallel Worlds (LTP hack) on SNES (you can buy a cartridge of it). I think this would be a great challenge for you guys.

    And James, you should review Cassette 50 (as AVGN). 🙂

  • Nick Fury

    March 4, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    Since James practically stopped making the AVGN videos (all of them were pure awesomeness) and started doing this “Monday” thing (which is incredibly dull, sorry but it is for me) Jon Tron has been my save boat :D, his videos remind me how thrilled I was to find about the AVGN videos back in 2005. Jon is doing a great job. And off-topic but Mike just seems soooo passive-aggressive.

    • Highwing

      March 4, 2015 at 8:43 pm

      I thought we’d be back to at least one (short) AVGN a month now that the movie’s over with, but I guess not. Hopefully more will come… I just went back and watched every single episode over the last month or so and I was reminded of how much I miss the series!

  • MetalHorrorNES

    March 5, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    Never heard of JonTron until now. I just watched some of his videos and was impressed, nice to see a fellow NYer out there doing this! Not that it makes a difference where you’re from but still cool. I would love to see a crossover episode w/ AVGN and JonTron, maybe even Pat too? That would be epic! Could be an episode using the four score or something?

  • Smokingspoon

    March 5, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    James got less derpy with the avgn character lately, which I like. I’s love to see more small skit and advetures like before though.

    12 days of shitness was nice too.

    • Highwing

      March 5, 2015 at 9:25 pm

      12 Days of Shitsmas was amazing. Even if he did one short episode like those a month, I’d be happy.

  • March 6, 2015 at 10:49 am

    How can you invite somebody that talked ***** about your Friend James? :/

  • March 7, 2015 at 12:22 pm

    You guys should do Bubble Bobble, probably one of the best 2 player games on NES.

  • Ben_from_G-town

    March 11, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    That video was hilarious. I wish the other Bomberman episode with Pat had been finished. Good stuff.

    March 11, 2015 at 9:35 pm

    that jontron guy ruined it. no more jontron please. he doesnt fit too well with the cinemassacre crew

  • June 2, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    Ah, that guy! JonTron… I do not like him.
