    Another good, entertaining video review! I never played played Dick Tracy, but somehow knew it stunk.

    I tried it again and when I got to the aircraft carrier sequence, whenever "up" flashed on the screen, I pressed down (to move up) and vice versa. From that point on, I was able to land fine every time.

    Top Gun was a fairly decent game at the time, but I never liked Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. I know it's a classic, but I found it to be too ambitious. I prefer Castlevania and Super Castlevania IV, which are straightforward action games.

    Deadly Towers is garbage. So is Rambo, Bad Street Brawler, Super Pitfall, Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum, Tag Team Wrestling, Karate Champ, and Ikari Warriors II: Victory Road.

    Then again, some people think urinals and cans of excrement are art.

    Didnt like the DIck Tracy one......it was one of my favorite NES games. Getting past the first 3 boards wasnt too hard, too bad he didnt know which warehouses had health.

    There are two reviews James has done where I was in 100% agreement with him on every single thing he said. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dick Tracy. Good Lord Dick Tracy was a thorn in my side. I have no idea how much time I WASTED back then on that game. Yes, wasted. Like Jimmy, I too was enthralled with Dick Tracy. I used to buy the packs of trading cards from the Ice Cream lady all the time (same as TMNT). The neighborhood kids would organize ourselves into a Dick Tracy RPG, where I was almost always Tracy (same as TMNT). Just couldn't get enough Dick Tracy (like TMNT). And then to get rewarded with such garbage! Oh the humanity! Jame's expression when he died once and had game over, and then arrested the guy, and that wasn't good enough, is exactly the way I reacted.

    The third game of those years, where I was obsessed with the movie, got the game, and was treated to a pile of radioactive dung, was Days of Thunder. James should review that one soon, because it was a doosie!

    PS: I just saw for the first time that James is doing an actual blog. I loved his pictures of the Back to the Future locations.

    I think the Dick Tracy licesnse could be used really effectively in a GTA or Yakuza-style game.

    Funny, the Deadly Towers one was rough but the concept made it difficult... I actually *like* the Batman/Superman ones (save for pt. 2 of batman... Matei just got way too annoying as the Joker).

    Battletoads similarly was enjoyable... as my co-worker and I now yell to each other in the halls "I play the games and you... GET BACK BEHIND THE COUCH!" (working at a school means censoring yourself... *sigh*)

    Of course I love Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! so my humor is clearly warped

    News Flash!

    We have the latest on the NC/AVGN warfront. After much deliberation, swearing, and sissy-slapping, the two are finally going to duke it out...ONE...LAST...TIME.

    Lives will be lost.
    Cities will be demolished.
    Families will be torn apart.
    Civilization as we know it will soon end.

    But who cares about that sh!t! It's going to be the battle to end all battles!
    The Nerd and the Critic are duking it out mono to mono, fist to fist, nerd cursing to critic cursing, and its going to be sweet!

    Clear your dates for October 10 for when the world ends!


    This is Toupee O'Hair, signing off!

    Oh, that's the Nostalgia Critic? I never actually looked it up, but I have sampled thatguywiththeglasses' offerings before. He's pretty good.

    I just realized, the Atari 2600 the AVGN uses has red switches.

    I thought this thread being bumped after two weeks meant there was a new video up. Weak.

    I appreciate any word on James, but, yeah, I thought this was a new vid, too. I saw an AC/DC retrospective he did a week or so back that was pretty nice, but I sure am jonesing for some AVGN.

    He's probably busy doing the Godzillathon series on his Cinemassacre account.

    EDIT: He's supposed to have a "showdown" with the Nostalgia Critic sometime next week.
    And don't bring up that stupid girlie Aladdin rip off! Shantea?

    I just now watched the Dick Tracy video.

    Kinda random, but they're looking for people to subtitle his videos in other languages:
