      Bootsy will beat it on coop, using both controllers himself, in like five minutes.

        while explaining how he does it the whole time

        Haha.. I’d really like to see him being challenged in other hard reputed games!

    Awesome as usual James. This site has so many awesome videos and I really hope that Board James will continue after the finale.

    Why didnt you take one side each in the last stage you played? just ridiculous play :/

    This game isn’t as hard as everyone thinks it can be completed in just under 20 minutes if done efficiently. Also there is a bunch of moves James and Doug were unaware of that would have made the game a little easier like dash attacks and ect. I’m sure if they’d known of these things they wouldn’t have had such a hard time with the game.

      What’s the problem?

      • December 3, 2015 at 2:59 am

        He talks too much and too loudly, has an irritating voice, laughs at his own jokes, and offers only humor that is completely lacking in any nuance or subtlety.

  • December 3, 2015 at 2:27 am

    I’ve grown much more fond of Doug the more I see you guys play games together! Always a treat!

    And just because I can’t help it, about the 0 lives thing, I’m pretty sure it says 0 lives because you are currently using the life that was there when it said that you had 1 life left and then died. 😀 Again, great video guys! Keep em coming!

    this was an awesome episode

    The Arcade version was much better, it has so much blood.

    One of my all time favourite games. Come on guys, you can do better 😉

  • December 3, 2015 at 12:08 pm

    Good games with a wide variety of moves are the Streets of Rage games. Lot of fun ways to beat up enemies and a great sound track too.

    Just what are you two guys cooking? Because the review of TMNT nerdy critics was awesome!

    “Fuck you I’m a chicken I’m amazing” i died. That was too fucking funny Doug. And your head bopping made my spleen burst.

      Definitely Doug’s best line from these, not counting his Nostalgia Critic persona.

    Doug & Valium best friends forever.

  • December 4, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    No more Doug please… Why are you doing stuff with him?

  • December 5, 2015 at 2:08 pm

    I think the logic on some game developers’ minds are that you have 0 reserves remaining at the base. This is the last man standing in the battlefield. Or something like that.

    I remember renting this game when I was younger on a sleepover at my cousins house and loving the hell out of it. The way the lives system works and how it puts you back all the way at a checkpoint when only one person hits zero is indeed really stupid. Might only even be one of the few games with this kind of bullshit system. It’s a shame too cause this games is all kinds of fun when is not punishing the hell out of you.

    This game looks like POS

    The dragon necks made out of a string of balls is often called “vectorballs”, if you were looking for a term to describe it.
