    “Hell Fighter” is actually an unofficial NES game made by Thin Chen Enterprises in 1991. It’s a subpar platformer/beat-em-up.

        It was a joke. Don’t take things so seriously.

    It’s a pretty good cover, I think. True, it features an almost naked and overly ripped dude, and maybe that makes some guys uncomfortable, but look at it another way – he also looks like he can get shit done. He’s so tough that he doesn’t even need clothes to go into battle. No chain mail, no armour, not even a tunic. Just a sword and a thong you dare not look directly at.

    OK James normally, I’m a big fan of almost everything you do, but this series, I feel, is not doing the nerd any justice. As short as the clips are we don’t really get to see the nerd persona shine, like in a longer videos. These clips I feel are better served just as James himeself. I know these were designed to be short, but theres not much room in those few short mins to really let the character breath and be the nerd.

    If you are able to pull the sword from the ass, do you become King of Shit?

    Yeah, this one’s terrible, too. Not sure what’s going on, there. The lettering is uninspired, and what’s with the hand. Is he grabbing that skull, or is that what his hand turns into? It’s almost like He-man. “I have the power”! As for his… private area, he’s supposed to be wearing a loin cloth of some sort, but even there, it’s pretty small for something like that. When the artist presented this sketch to the company, they should have told him/her to go back to the drawing board.

    That’s an awesome drawing xD
    I love realistic and yet incorrect anatomy drawings.

    I think the plot for this game is clear: During one particularly epic battle, this hero got a sword lodged in his ass. It is so firmly wedged that even he, for all his muscles, cannot pull it out. Now he searches all across the land, seeking someone even stronger than himself to help him remove the sword.
