    It says on his site he has the Turbo CD. Isn't that the turbo Duo? Don't they both play the same games?

    The Turbo CD is the addon version that you attach to a standard Turbografx; the Duos are stand-alone systems including both card and CD support. If you have a Turbo CD you need a system card to play CD games. The standard System Card 2.0 is common, but the US version of the Super System Card 3.0 is quite rare and valuable, it'll cost at least $100, maybe $200... most likely more than paying to have your system modded to accept Japanese cards and then just buying a Japanese System Card 3.0, which are much cheaper. (The Duo has a Super System Card built in.)

    There's also the Arcade Card, for a few Japanese titles, and for that the Duo needs one too, but as far as US releases like Godzilla go, all you need is a way of playing Super CDs.

    The Turbo CD game is a 1 on 1 fighter, but just an average one from what I've read. Still, it'd have been good to see him mention it. It was one of the very last US Turbografx releases (one of the last three or four), so it's not common, though...

    The Wayne's World video is pretty good, it reminds me of his older reviews like the one for "Back to the Future".

    Good editing and all, but it didn't really seem that the games were sufficiently awful enough to get particularly riled up about.

    Between the hit detection (Wayne's kick) and the broken jumping mechanic, it's among the worst platformers on the system. I haven't played the SNES version, but it looks to be a better game, and only warranted reviewing because of the horrid NES one.

    Never played the NES version, but I can say the SNES version was god awful. Very good video, as usual.

    I like how he's gotten back to his roots and uses movie clips in reviews.

    he seems to go back and forth, between professional and curse-laden.

    If you mean does he get paid, then the answer is yes.

    wow... i'm sorry if this has already been mentioned in the thread (i'm not going to read through 1500 posts to check) but has anyone seen his auctions on ebay? he sells different props and games used during his episodes on ebay and just so you can get an idea of how much these go for, here is a link to his feedback page.

    it seems like this avgn business is pretty lucrative for him.

    He deserves every penny. He entertains people on the internet for free, has entertaining quality videos and is a nice guy and supporter/friend of Digital Press
