    When I was at PAX a couple of weekends ago I had two customers at my booth who didn't know each other. One looked at the other and said "do you watch the angry video game nerd?" He gave him some kind of head nod and then they high-fived while one of them said "for the win!" I have never seen anything so nerdy in my whole life. Totally awesome! Probably one of the top ten moments in my life that I wish I had a video camera rolling.

    James's Angry Nerd personified as the sin of wrath in a comic by an (very talented) artist named bleedman.

    If you're a fan of Cartoon Network's shows (or cartoons in general). Check his other comics.

    Enjoy!

    And I see your comment indicates you're just as ignorant that those who spat out "gay" comments over at Gametrailers.

    Have you looked at the rest of his work? Don't answer cause you'd probably took one glimpse and made up your mind already on the spot without giving a second thought. Sure, subject matter isn't everyone's cup of tea, but that's no reason to say he's talentless.

    His art style and storytelling is above par than the thousands of drawings and comics I've seen on the internet over the years. His drawings has rich detail yet doesn't compromise the overall simplicity of the subject. He adds depth and characters incurring deep and methodical relations and interactions creating storylines that are intriguing and easy to follow. At least, that's what I see.

    Has anyone followed his blog on his Cinemassacre site? Apparently James has been traveling around California a bit, visiting old movie spots. It's pretty interesting, and his most recent trip was to the mall parking lot from Back to the Future where Doc first tested the DeLorean.

    I fail to see how bashing this comic is relevant to the thread. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions on what they like and what they do not. It started out topical by featuring a depiction of the AVGN, but now this tangent is sailing toward dark skies. Let's drop this subject and get back to focus.

    So, James' reviews of all six of the Rocky movies really motivated me to see all of them, and I did just that. It's ironic that the Rocky game for the SMS bites. It's too bad he didn't get past Clubber Lang, because I'd LOVE to have seen a reaction to the third training stage: See, in the third stage, you're punching pads held by Mickey, who... eh, it may be silly to institute a spoiler warning for a film that's about twenty years old, but regardless, SPOILER: Mickey dies in Rocky III, yet you train with him before going on to fight Ivan Drago of Rocky IV. I would have loved to seen James flip his proverbial shit over this inconsistency.
    That's it! Next stop: The Junkyard. Population: You!

    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.

    I agree. The swearing is a bit excessive and when i am just looking for a video of a game, the person doing it has to say stupid crap all through it. Now if it were entertaining commentary then it would be OK, but most say the same derrogatory phrase about the game the whole time.

    Uh.

    He REALLY went crazy over the game. :\

    You can kinda feel the pent-up anger, bottled up over twenty years.

    That was a great review. It reminds me of the older reviews he did without any gimmicks. Plus his nerd rage this time felt more realistic and less forced than previous reviews.

    Great review as always, even though I had a lot of fun with this game when I was like 11. I liked open-ended games like that where you could roam around in buildings that really had no purpose. I was pretty easily amused back then, however. Was this the game where one of the weapons or options was "slip him a mickey"? Also,

    Definitely enjoying his videos more when they're more review and less gimmicky acting with game-related characters popping in.

    It was fun!

    I thought he was going to review the other versions, like the SMS, Genesis, and GameBoy versions.

    Maybe in another review!
