    Pretty decent analysis of the VB. Someone should help the kid at 1:50, looks like he is either smothered by his VB or in a coma.

    Pretty cool that he reviews almost every US release.

    I'm very impressed that he got such decent shots of the games in action!

    Didn't realize that you could look into one mono-visual-channel of the Virtual Boy and get full images of what was going on.

    angry video game nerd is a pretty entertaining gimmick. however, there are two things i dislike about his videos, and only one is his fault:

    1) he tends to overdo it with the swearing. i get it, you're angry, but i think saying "fuck" every 3 words detracts from the humor

    2) he has inspired every pathetic geek in the universe to try and duplicate his schtick. the big problem with that is that 99% of them are godawful.

    Not his fault that he's been copied so much. He's copied because he's entertaining. The only way he wouldn't be copied is if he weren't entertaining, and we don't want that.

    Good review. Funny stuff.

    although i'm not generally a big user of the art of swearing nor do i get much of a giggle when i do hear it used i don't have a problem with the AVG nerd swearing as much as he does. if hes going to be angry i suppose he may as well be over the top. also adds a bit to his feelings of frusteration with some of these games which i can definatly relate to

    as i said, only one of my qualms about the angry nintendo (or now i guess "video game") nerd is really his fault.

    the video game nerd imitators are THE WORST. it really gets at me when you see some video of some geek, who isn't pretending to be a geek, drones on in a monotone voice inspersed with failed attempts at humor and edginess. it's kind of like watching the obese, acne ridden girl in high school say she hopes to someday be a model.

    again, the angry nintendo/video game nerd is quality...just not all the wannabes

    Excellent review. I'm happy he didn't just go and bash it like everyone else does

    i haven't watched that much of his new stuff. i think the reality of the situation is that you can only work the "i am playing crappy video games and getting pissed off" angle for so long.

    I don't think his review was funny at all, but it was entertaining to watch. Old games don't get coverage like new ones do so it's nice to have regular reviews of even the bad ones.

    I love the virtual boy, I find the gimmicky 3d effects to be entertaining, playing VB in the dark is quite cool. I just got my complete waterworld in the mail today, cant wait to play it and see just how bad it is.

    I agree, Oh man it was entertaining.

    I really want a Virtual boy to myself just because it's so bad, and easy to collect.

    I watched the video yesterday and enjoyed it. Almost makes me want to hunt down a Virtual Boy for Wario Land (which is definitely the best game on the system), Vertical Force, and Galatic Pinball.

    Why not? His writing is excellent and every video is very entertaining in its own way. That's like saying MST3K shouldn't have worked for 11 years because all they did was watch crappy movies and make fun of them.
