    I really enjoyed the most recent AVGN video. I understand why it takes so long for him to make new episodes - between how long it takes just to make it and the movie he's working on - but still, I always find myself wishing for more.

    Anyway, it is pretty bad, mainly because the game design is horrendous, which makes the control seem bad. The scrolling on jumping, air-puffs, water-skipping, etc. are a pain because they're not properly executed. The scrolling up and down happens at the worse-possible time (ALWAYS when there's enemies below you), air-puffs come in mobs, and the water-skipping is far too common.

    It would've been a great game based on the ideas/concept if placed in the hands of a better producer, like Capcom. But Vic Tokai also produced a very fun game, The Krion Conquest, so who knows?

    So basically it's a mediocre game, but not awful.

    I liked it, for what it was worth, with him busy and all. You can tell he was pressed for time, sitting in one spot for the visual part of the Nerd. All in all, a lot like a 2006/7 episode, and that'll do for now, since his last episode was what, march? (Not counting Barbie/making of AVGN). And yeah, i see hair loss is more apparent now.

    Oops, double post.

    Here's the TAS video. (The author used MATLAB calculations to figure out some of the moves. How delightful!)

    Once you hit the 3-0, you don't broach the subject!

    BTW, Kid Kool clearly rips off backgrounds and sprites from Super Mario Bros. games.

    I've never been one to watch or read reviews, but I happened across a JTV stream of all the AVGN videos in a row, mixed in with reviews from ScrewAttack and Zero Punctuation. So, I'm a ZP fan now.

    That was definitely one of his weaker videos.

    The latest AVGN episode Kid Kool was awesome. I enjoyed the seven deadly sins aspect, and the game itself is truly piss poor. The vertical jumping with scrolling screen is unforgivable, and the designers should have known better.
    I don't mind an occasional guest on his show, I found Jason and the Ninja from Ninja Gaiden to be really funny. But overall, I prefer this standard type of game focused avgn review, and this one delivered the goods. The other versions of the game like Psycho Fox may be decent game, but the Nerd is right about Kid Kool. It's a horrible clone of that game, with awful game flaws. The Dr. Claw part had me rolling on the floor and wishing the game actually existed. Someone make it! Once again Amazing video from the Nerd!

    I'm now also thinking it doesn't exist.

    I remember this game from my childhood. It was indeed terrible.

    Whatever, he can start wearing hats or something. Has no effect on the review.

    If there's one thing that's for sure, it's that these games are hilarious to play with somebody.

    Holy shit, I was half-paying attention and suddenly some chick in fishnets appears and starts talking about the Genesis.

    I thought I stumbled onto a tube porn site for a second.
    And don't bring up that stupid girlie Aladdin rip off! Shantea?
