    reminds me of how the new mario on switch is in New Donk City…lol i hope its not this bad.

      Stylistically that might provoke controversy, but Mario usually doesn’t deal with high speed, so this will definitely be a better game

    Haha, “The motherest of fucks”. I’m starting to wonder if I, in my late 30s, should be ashamed that I still find language like that funny. Nah. Still funny.

      The creative swearing is definitely one of my favorite parts of the Nerd videos.

    I’ve been all the way through the end of this, and it gets waaayyyy worse, tbh it’s not as bad as some games, and I think if it wasn’t rushed so much, it’d be a good game, one of the best, but, it was rushed, and they tried to do more than the PS3/360 could handle, here’s hoping Project Sonic 17 kinda does better.

    I’d forgotten just how bad this game was, but watching this video made the memories come flooding back. I’m going to bill you for the therapy sessions i’m going to need.

    Really like the intro. I love hearing the covers and remixes. The clips are always nice though.
    When you said “welcome” repeatedly you started to sound like Pac-Man. “Wakawakawaka”.
    Your special effects seem better. The green screen is much more clean. Good episode.

      I loved that Billy Madison reference by the way.
      And don’t talk about Captain America’s boxes.

    What a weird episode. Not your style.

  • April 20, 2017 at 10:19 pm

    Love the Billy Madison reference 🙂

    For a moment there, I thought the ‘collection’ was gonna be the vault in indiana jones lol

    I feel I went back to the past, not because of the game, but because of the style The Nerd reviews the game! Thank you for such an entertaining episode. And was the game that opened the torture chamber Adventure Island?

    Instead of this 3rd person bullshit why don’t they make a real good 2 D sonic game. SEGA should hand the franchise over to Yacht club games so they can be reminded of what a good Sonic game should look and play like.

      Sonic Mania looks promising.

    Good episode, great intro.

    That was a pretty good episode. Glad to see you doing sponsors. I go to full sail currently for digital cinematography and will be graduating after January.

    You briefly touched on it, but other than the horrendous gameplay, the part that bothers me the most is this psuedo-cartoon bestiality with some serious hebephilia thrown in the mix. It’s just fucking weird. I could forgive the bad gameplay for an amazing story…I can forgive a piece of shit story for solid game play…but not both.

    “This game is dick cock.” My new favorite Nerd quote.

    Enjoyed this a lot, great episode! 🙂 I liked the clever editing where he inserted himself into the game, and agree that Sonic interacting with realistic human characters (especially the girl) just seems fucking weird, man.

    Motherest of Fucks, Bull Dookie and Anal Sauce I have to remember to use haha. Only other game I can think of where you fall through things into the sky is maybe Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City, maybe some others in that series.

    I rented this game and was disappointed, then just pissed off. Played the 2 player which lets you get right into the stages but the game is glitched to fuck to point of being unplayable. You sure skewered it good!

    “The Collection” I loved your game torture room! 😀

      Oh yeah loved how you put yourself in the game it was done really well and was hilarious!

    It is really awesome that You’ve started to make AVGN more often again! Neat stuff!

    This was a really awesome video! Your jokes were great, it was nice and long, it was just you and the game no “special guests”, and you did what you did best; sat there and made people laugh! It was also hilarious how you kept putting yourself into the game. Thank you for this James! And it’s such a pleasant surprise to see yet another video one month after your Power Rangers review. Is there a glimmer of hope that you’re gonna start making these videos monthly again? Or at least more than before?

    I was thinking for the Halloween special, if you even have time at this point to start it now, what if you did reviews on some Spawn games? Or you could do Gargoyles on the Sega Genesis.

  • July 14, 2017 at 3:09 pm

    Funny opening
    This game is not as bad as people say

  • July 18, 2017 at 2:29 am
