    Good review, but some eggs are flesh-colored or brown.

    Are you fucking kidding me? Irritating Stick, Crack Out, and now Cock’In? Don’t make me say it…

        By tracing the negative space between her pinky and ring finger, you can also attach a penis to those testicles.
        I’m sure the next title will be called Dick Inside Ass.

    Seriously, that’s what it’s called? Sounds like a cheesy porn flick.

    I actually owned this back in the day, until my brother sold half of our C64 games without my permission. Now i’ve only got the Chickin Chase version after rebuilding my C64 collection. 🙁
    Fun little game though.

    I grew up with the C-64, and there certainly were some steaming-turd-covers back in the days… but COCK’IN, wow… I’m speechless! I have no speech!!!

    Flesh-colored are what eggs usually are, unless the ones you get are all bleached white? o_O

      This must have also been the alternate cover of Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead.

    Too bad the alternate title was called “Chicken Chase” instead of “Chicken Choke”.

    This cover is soooo many kinds of wrong. Wouldn’t know where to start. I’ll only say this: I’m surprised that they were able to publish a game with a cover like this on it. Given the era that was produced in.

    Never owned a C64,,, but my friend had one with a ton of crappy games…The only game I loved was Beach Head “Just mowing down bad guys with a heavy machine in a bunker,, or throwing knives at a ninja ” Some good times 🙂

    Stopstopstop, we see what you are trying to do here, James. It’s called “content optimization”. That means, you are trying to make the most money with the least efford. See, in the good old AVGN times, this series would be ONE episode, and quite a funny one. But you got it. It’s like the DLC marketing model. Don’t give them the whole 20-to-30-minutes-thing! Chop it up into little 3-minutes-pieces and cash in for every single click! Clever, from a marketing point of view. Personally, that pisses me off, because you are a f*king millionaire already, you don’t need to do that! It makes you loose credibility!

      Um… he already told us there’d be a full length AVGN episode this month. This is in ADDITION to that, and the Board James episode too. You’re complaining about getting something extra.

      I personally fucking love it. 24 days of content in a row to look forward to. Twice as long as the 12 Days of Shitsmas last year.
      Also, a millionaire? 😛 Somehow I doubt that. James works too fucking hard.

    Does the shark on the string figure into the game somehow? Is it made of amber and he needs to find orichalcum to woo the hens or something??

      Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis reference. I like it. 🙂

    Can I digress and talk about the apostophe? It would look more normal to the eye if this game was called Cockin’ with the apostrophe at the end, short for “cocking” whatever that might mean. Chickening? But it’s in the middle, Cock’in suggesting it’s a contraction removing a letter from the middle. Cockpin? Cockmin?

    The apostrophe in Cock’in… what letter(s) is that supposed to stand in for? It’s not at the end like Cockin’, so it can’t be short for Cocking. What is it then? Cocklin? Cock Bin? Cocks In?

    I actually had that game, but I had it under the Chikin Chase name.

    It should have been called bitch’in.

    It’s a chesticle.

    Best… worst cover ever.
