    ... I don't like Contra.

    Closest I ever got is liking Irem's knockoffs, the Gun Force games.

    Still gonna check out this vid eventually.

    Really??? Would you care to share why? Did you ever play the game with friends as a kid? I just took for granted that Contra was universally loved.

    RCR and Renegade aren't actually the same game.

    The game on that site is Nekketsu Kouha Kunio Kun Special, and it looks like more of a remake. Wikipedia says there's characters from other games in the series.

I mean I understand he can only review games he actually has, but in that case he should've just not dissed the system. It would be like if I reviewed ten bad SNES games and concluded that the whole system sucks. That works when its a system like the Virtual Boy which didn't have very many games, but not something like the Sega CD.
    Yeah, and the worst thing about that is most people online (most likely too young to have been around during the time when these games were released) seem to take their cues about what's good and bad from what AVGN says.

    Like on many of the Sega CD commercials on Youtube, most of the comments are stuff like "total fucking gar-bitch" riffing on what the Nerd said about it.

    I really wish I had more Sega CD games, a DVD Recorder setup like what he has, good video editing software and shit like that, so I could do a counterpoint to his Sega CD review.

    Guess I better start saving.

    Incidentally, just watched the Contra video and was kind of disappointed. I was hoping he'd do a rundown on the franchise like he did for Castlevania, but he just talked about how he beat the first one as a kid. I mean, it was kind of awesome to hear about how everyone in his house gathered to watch him win, but still.

    There's not really a special reason, just no games in the franchise have "clicked" with me.

    Fair enough. There are a good many iconic NES games that I feel the same way about.

    Didn't see this posted, Bible Games 3:

    http://www.gametrailers.com/video/an...wattack/724633

    A bit weak honestly, but considering how busy he is and how few bible games he had left to do I can't blame him too much.
    And don't bring up that stupid girlie Aladdin rip off! Shantea?

    Nifty jacket. There was a missed opportunity there to introduce it for a more futuristic game.

    He's worn that jacket in several other videos, too. I used to see a lot of them on eBay back around 2003-2004.

    yeah, agreed, a little weak, but fine, considering what he had to work with.
    It kinda feels like he's running out of steam...

    I dunno. I think he's in a lull right now and he'll pick back up. I mean, he even acknowledges right at the begnning that this is gonna be one of his weaker episodes.

    I still watched it twice.

    Anybody see his new video? He basically says he didn't realize how much money it was going to cost to make a movie with all the location fees and what not.

    I am blown away by this. You would think he would have looked into it more and made some calls before just packing up shop and moving across the country. He says he has to cut out scenes from the movie now to keep within budget.

    If I actually donated money and was super excited for this movie I think i would be a little pissed to find out that the director was incompetent.

    And if he is saying this before the movie is even remotely close to shooting, you know he will be hurting for money big time down the home stretch.

    99% of all films have a director that is incompetent every now and then.

    A lot of films also go over budget.

    A good director makes the most out of what he has. So maybe we'll end up with something decent anyway.
