>That awful new episode
The AVGN is officially finished, holy shit
>The AVGN is officially finished
It was finished in 2012
2011 had a few really good reviews but it started to noticeably go down hill
2012 was fucking horrible
that hair is fucking disgusting wtf james
The Beetlejuice review was terrible. I had to turn it off, it was so bad. It really did feel forced.
Also, I hate the glossy new glasses that he wears in the review and in the AVGN movie. They're just so distracting the way light reflects off of them.
I used to love James but if I saw him today I'd honestly try to kill him just to put him out of his misery. He's like an old sick dog that you can't stand to see hurt any longer.
He hates being the nerd but that's all he's got and he has to keep playing the character to maintain a living. His movie, the one chance of him following his dream of being a real film maker, was a completely embarrassing disaster.
He has a broken baby, his bitch wife walks all over him and the fact she's cuckolding him is all but confirmed. He's balding.
I think he'd kill himself if not for the baby, but with his wife's reputation I doubt it's even his in the first place.
I'd just tell him I'm sorry and put a bullet in the back of his head.
He can't hide from the truth anymore, and he knows it.
>tfw it all makes sense now
>Very few reviews post-2007 are beyond passable.
>virtual boy, batman part 1, bible games 2, doublevision, NES accessories, mario 3, indiana jones, dick tracy, frankenstein, dracula, moonwalker, zelda
nigga this is from 2008 alone
Is James gonna commit Sudoku pretty soon?
>wasted years of effort full of stress, crew walking out, crew making fun of him, to make a movie nobody liked or cares about anymore
>knocked out of youtube most subscribed list when he was top 10 at one point

>was never really into video games and sucks at it
>knows very little about video games and movies, gets most information from Wikipedia. Mike knows more than him
>was a fucking normie that just had drunk nostalgia when he did the first two reviews but was forced to do AVGN for income
I can't believe James Rolfe was my internet husbando from ages 15-20.
god damn I hate april so much YOU SHOULD'VE MARRIED A REAL ARTIST LIKE ME, WE COULD'VE MADE YOUR MOVIE ACTUALLY KIND OF DECENT I DON'T EVEN CARE THAT YOU'RE GOING BALD
>ITT fags on /v/ trying to criticize muthafuckin James Rolfe, the only acceptable 'gamer culture' presence.
>Turned his dumb parody character into a sensation despite actually knowing fuckall about games. Knows how to turn criticism into entertainment unlike you, an uncharismatic dipshit who posts on chinese forums.
>Super nice guy IRL, unlike slobbish, seething You.
>makes reviews with his best bro Mike, who though less charismatic knows a shitload more about games than James does. You don't even see anyone frequently enough for them to consider you a friend.
>Made a fucking movie that in and of itself is an analysis of gamer culture and how petty and worthless a lot of the industry is. You're still reading this post. Way to go, dipshit.
>losin his hair because he's spent ten years working his ass off to entertain people. You can't even lose or gain weight, you're just a whole bunch of You.
stay jelly, holy shit
Whatever happened to the sofa guy? HE was based as fuck
2008-2009 were absolutely nothing compared to 2007, which was a step down from 2006.
His early reviews are raw and pure. There's genuine anger in them. After 2007, the series became too obviously acted. James became less believable as the Nerd.
What if the movie was just some uhh like wizard forces james to review the WORST GAMES EVER and all that, and its just an hour 30 long movie of him doing really high quality avgn reviews with some plot sprinkled in
wouldnt that make everyone happy?
>Would you really want to marry James, Anon?
>>"The condom broke, what a shitload of fuck! Turn around, I'm gonna do you in the AAAAAASS"
Not gonna say I liked a fair amount of his stuff, especially with extensive acting or the shit jokes. Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle was fucking intolerable.
But when it's just gameplay footage and him speaking, he was golden. Engaged and interested in quality, critical but constructive.
I know it's bait but, he already made a movie!
I used to love Brad but if I saw him today I'd honestly try to kill him just to put him out of his misery. He's like an old sick dog that you can't stand to see hurt any longer.
He hates playing Dota but that's all he's got and he has to keep playing the character to maintain a living. His Quick Looks, the one chance of him following his dream of being not a casual, are a completely embarrassing disaster.
He's fat as fuck, his bitch girlfriend walks all over him and the fact she's cuckolding him is all but confirmed. He's greying.
I think he'd kill himself if not for Jeff, but with Drew's reputation I doubt he's even his in the first place.
I'd just tell him I'm sorry and put a bullet in the back of his head.
>HURR DURR JAMES IS SUPPER DEPRESSED HIS BABY IS SICK HURR IS WIFE IS A BITCH DURR HE'S BLADING AND WANTS TO KILL HIMSELF HE'LL NEVER LIVE UP TO HIS DREAMS DURRRRRRRRR
Can /tv/ pls leave?
It's not as bad as you guys were saying. Some of the jokes fell flat but it's still James cursing and screaming "shit game" like always.
His hair though jesus christ
>Nerd celebrity begrudgingly clings to old fame to make a living
That happened to almost everyone who was involved in the making of any cult phenomenon. Some just cling more firmly, like Bill Shatner. It might seem sad, but James is playing par.
AVGN was finished the moment he ran out of games he actually played and got genuinely angry at.
All of the emotion he showed when reviewing shitty games was pure. When he had to act, he couldn't cut it. He's not a good actor. He's just like every other reviewer: They know the theory, but they can't put it in practice. They don't have the artist's spark.
It's a shame to see him like this. A lot of people don't even know he's the one that truly started the caustic video game critic trend. At least Seanbaby still has dignity.
WHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYY wasn't he adventuring with the Nerd in the movie? Why why why did they force in the black kid and gurlgamer?
I'm going to write a better AVGN movie right now, check it /v/:
The Nerd's futon is stolen. Tired of being sat on like a Greco slave, Couch Guy suggests they go get it back. After he convinces the Nerd, they embark on a quest involving overcoming tons of shitty game mechanisms from previous reviews and using the magic of the items from the Atari Swordquest competition to slay the broken final boss and return the game room to normalcy.
I wish he cut those fucking sideburns. I don't usually mind sideburns but his have been looking ugly as shit.
He's going to take you back to his pad.
To NTR his wife if you're black.
He'd rather have a potato, beta cuck baby from Tyrone.
He'd rather have, a narcassistic wife, with Ashkenazi genetic issues.
He's the baldest gamer you've ever heard.
He's the angry cuckold nerd.
He's the angry beta SJW whipped wife nerd.
I never knew or cared about this Spoony thing but damn that's 2008 Warrior Cats "randomness" videos on Youtube low.
>the Book of Genesis for the Sega Genesis and the soundtrack is Genesis
Mike is exactly the kind of guy I used to be as a teenager. I can't even express how glad I am the internet wasn't readily available when I was younger so that I couldn't show the world my retardation.
Anytime I see Mike, my chest starts burning and I think of what I could've become. Same with all of the TGWTG cast.
Places like reddit find a dead horse and beat it, but 4chan props it up with wire and hangs it from a tree to use it as a pinata. We're just squeezing the last bit of juice out of a dying joke.
If it was AVGN, it should've been a "For the fans" type of movie, with all of it being reference towards his works and jokes and plots of other videos.
The ninja trainer could've shown up. The glitch gremlin could've shown up. Bugs and the Joker. Even Shitpickle. But nah. Gotta be terrible. Fucking fuck.
Though those episodes really aren't as good as the old ones, the problem is you guys.
It isn't the matter of growing older and not appreciating his humor, it's you getting too involved in the worst parts of 4chan: Being cynic for the sake of it and embracing the tryhard and quite frankly newfaggy trend of "we hate everything xD 4chan is the cesspool of hate yeahh \o/" Some of you are probably too old for this shit. Don't behave like a rebellious teen.
If you liked him a lot before but lately you're unable to, try to stop being such edgy tryhard first. If you never liked him before then nothing changes.
His wife's maiden name was April Chmura
Chmura Name Meaning
Polish and Jewish (from Poland): nickname from chmura ‘cloud’.
I thought he was going to retire the nerd after the movie. What happened?
It could never be a truly loner movie. The Nerd is a reactionist, he needs someone (or something, in the case of the games on the show) to interact with. Cough Guy has co-opped two games and really been the only canon second person (save for Kaufman and Bullsitman/Board James who wouldn't work for obvious reasons) to have been there. Mike is only in Board James as a character, same for Bootsie.
There could be an ABBA scene, dying because they jump from too far up before they hit the ground, having to coordinate to use single items like Indiana Jones on Atari, all kinds of shit. Think of Game of Death but Bruce Lee has to deal with terrible and inconsistent rules of existence or something.
Did his wife actually cheat on him or is /v/ just posting that over and over for some reason.
I thought the movie was really really "okay." It wasn't really an AVGN movie. It was a sci fi movie that had the AVGN in it, and the review at the end really left me with a "what?"
/pol/ is always right
Nobody's gonna believe your Jew conspiracy theories. It isn't the 20th century anymore, grandpa
it's not THAT bad. Felt a bit forced, sure, like he wasn't really into it, and the same few scenes from the game were played over and over again, but at least there wasn't any retarded waste of time like fighting with beetlejuice that came out of the tv or shit like that. Miles better then that turd cut out of the movie.
>lack of diversity
gas yourself kike, we don't believe your lies
Not bad overall. "Caucasian sausage fest" is a bit uncalled for, considering the context of the post and conversation around it. Feels like a shock factor word choice used just for the sake of implied progressiveness.
>On something that even she herself believes females aren't even interested in
What the fuck is the point?
Why can't people realize that all that happened was that you got older? His video reviews really aren't very different from before, they just have better editing. The older reviews are just as forced sounding. The difference is that you grew up.
People are complaining the videos are 3 minutes long when they were like that for the most part in pretty much all MMs before.
It's like they're desperate to find something to hate.
I saw James Rolfe at a grocery store in Philadelphia yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
Bald and Piglike was the golden age of /v/. We'll never see OC like that ever again.
>the difference is you grew up
>just started watching nerd this year
>think much of the early-mid stuff is a bit better
However, I watched the Simpsons for the first time this year too, during that FXX marathon of the entire series. The first several seasons of that show were about 120% better than the latter part, objectively.
Because they each own at least 30 of them a piece.
Once you get that many, you start getting creative. Those are probably wire cut for intentional carrying around. I've seen belt buckles, card cases, phone cases, all sorts of shit.
>The Nerd's blanket is stolen
And the blu-ray release includes a commentary reel with mike and gadget watching the movie with you.
The Christmas episodes.
I believe one of reasons the newer episodes are hit or miss is because now they feel more like reviews. He's explaining why the things are bad instead of ranting about how bad the things are.
There are cool, handsome people who are balding early too. You just don't notice it as much because of their confidence and stuff.
Disgusting autists will seem disgusting and autistic no matter how much hair they have.
If he just replaced the black guy with Mother fucker Mike i'd be fucking cool with the movie.
Idc what /v/ says, i love to hate mother fucker Mike. He's just a mother fucker all the time. (Mike and Mother Fucker Mike are 2 differen't people btw)
James probably started balding because of stress related to the movie. The guys at TGWTG because of lack of exercise, masturbation, depression, or medication.
am I the only one who just likes to listen to James talk about old shit
its kind of like game center cx for me it's just cozy and comforting to watch and I really couldn't care less if he's cracking jokes or not
I just went to check, you're right. It's like a Not-as-good version of the Nintendo Power episode. It's actually pretty decent, but it's AMONG all the other shit tier recent episodes. So would it be:
>Last good episode: Wish List
>Last good review:Bible Games 3 ?
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF WHAT DID YOU FUCKING CALL ME?
DO YOU FUCKING KN OW WHAT FAGGOT EVEN MEANS? IT MEANS A HOMOSEXUAL. A FUCKING QUEER. A WHOOPSY. A PRANCING LALA FRUITY BOY. YOU COME HERE, AND CALL ME FUCKING THAT? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MANY GIGABYTES OF PORNOGRAPHY FEATURING ONLY FUCKING !!!FEMALES!! I HAVE? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MANY TIMES A DAY I MASTURBATE TO THIS COLLECTION, HOW MANY HOURS I SPEND EXPANDING IT? NO, NO YOU FUCKING DON'T, YOU JUST COME IN HERE AND MAKE A FUCKING JUDGEMENT ON ME LIKE YOu"RE SOME KIND OF JUDGER OF FAGS WHEN I STILL SMELL OF THE SEMEN FROM JACKING IT TO THE PUSSY OF A FUCKING FEMALE THIS BOARD ISN"T FUCKING /GAY/ ALRIGHT IT'S /V/
WHIPE THAT SMILE OFF YOUR FUCKING FACE. I BET I HAVE AT LEAST TEN TIMES THE AMOUNT OF PICTURES OF VAGINA YOU DO, FAGGOT FAG FAG FRUITY WHOOPSY DOO-DOO LAA LAA SCOUT BOY GET THE FUCK OFF MY BOARD
It's a fucking joke you goddamn retards.
>I can bring a female perspective to things that I think all 10 of the female viewers will appreciate
She's making a self-aware joke about how ridiculous it is to bring diversity to a site with barely any female viewers. Then again, I'm not surprised /tv/ gossip autists don't know what a joke is.
>Bugs and the Joker
Copyright. Holy fuck are you guys retarded or something? Do you even know what copyright is you fucking sperglord?
This chicken tastes like an ox's anal evacuation.
FUUUUUUCK. IT TASTES LIKE FUCKING BULLSHIT
He has a very nice sounding voice that doesn't want to make me blow my brains out like most other youtubers.
His videos aren't really funny but I can still appreciate them because he puts in actual work.
also for some reason I always watch them when it rains
I feel bad for Mike. Nigger's got assburgers, and was just trying to keep people entertained while his best buddy was busy making a movie. Ended up turning the whole internet against him with this stupid shit. I laughed at it too at first, but when he took the video down I just felt terrible for him.
even more reason for him to review the footage and ask himself what the fuck he was thinking for even considering publishing something like that
Not sure what everyone is talking about with the new AVGN videos. I think they're still entertaining and have funny parts.
I just finished the Beetlejuice NES video and thought it was great. It was actually pretty hilarious, too. Really don't know what the fuck you idiots are going on about.
James is a fucking pussy.
I worked at Cinemassacre for little over a year, but he decided to fire me after about a month of everyone constantly harassing him. He was always drunk during meetings, or letting his wife blow Guitar Guy under the table even though everyone could tell. One day he couldn't stand it anymore, Mike was sitting next to him and everytime James tried to talk he would yell "Shit Pickle!" to interrupt him. After the fifth time he grabbed him by the shoulder, the rest of the staff started snickering behind his back. He looked James straight in the eyes, screaming "SHIT PICKLE! SHIT PICKLE!" extremely loudly. He reached for the Rolling Rock in his pocket and presented it to him, then he said in the Inspector Gadget voice:
"Want some? It's what the motherfucking nerd drinks."
He lost his temper and knocked it out of his hand, Mike gave me this look like he couldn't believe what he was doing. After that James was quiet for the rest of the meeting, victory was Mike's, or so I thought.
The next day I sat down on the couch, only to find a piece of shit stick to my ass when I sat down on the chair. I consulted James about it, but he acted dumb and pretended to have no idea what I was talking about. But it didn't stop there, every day he would put a piece of shit somewhere. Under the mouse, in my shoes, between my games, he even replaced the sandwich my wife had made for me with nothing but different colored shit..
>Jason and the Argonauts
>not a horror movie
me neither. didn't really care about the last episode, but I don't really find it any different than most of the stuff he always made.
I mean it's him playing a NES game and complaining about how it's shit. That's pretty much all it's ever been.
This feels like /v/
>wife is cheating on him
This is the sort of echo chambered baseless lie that people will assume is true.
I don't know him any more or less than the next person, but I do like his old work of course.
Either way there's no basis for this. A similar lie was levied against myself so I know what it's like for everyone to assume something that's wrong about you
>You don't even see anyone frequently enough for them to consider you a friend
>You can't even lose or gain weight, you're just a whole bunch of You
I was one of the people reminiscing about AVGN but seriously, a post like this doesn't add anything to the thread. Instead of actually discussing favorite episodes or something constructive, you just make an asspained post where you pathetically project with your worthless self-important post that most likely none of the intended people will read.
What's the funniest moment out of any review?
For me it's either in Swordquest when he goes through the door and it shows him getting startled or the opening of Action 52 when he reads the email.
I don't know why but I always found those 2 parts hilarious even though they're not even emphasized as being funny.
This should be updated to mineycrafta already
Spoony had a long slump. He spent about 3 years working for TGWTG and he went to shit with all the crossovers and shit. Then he got kicked out and spent a year in a downward spiral of self destruction. Now he's rebounded a bit, his new stuff if at the level of his early TGWTG stuff (I.E. not shit, but not great) and he no longer looks like he's half dead in videos.
Also, he's talking about D&D and other shit he actually cares about, rather than doing what the fans tell him and cranking out 10 part Final Fantasy reviews over the course of 2 years.
The video shows that outside of his YouTube channel he's a scumbag. Shitting on others because it's popular to do and will benefit yourself. Really shows the type of guy he is, especially one who holds grudges against people on the Internet.
>The AVGN is officially finished, holy shit
It's been beating a dead horse for several years bro.
AVGN hasn't got shit even on Spoony anymore and Spoony is shit compared to what he used to be.
RedLetterMedia just fucked the competition with production values although you can't compare them to AVGN since their mainstay is movies, not games.
>His early reviews are raw and pure. There's genuine anger in them
You're a fucking retard, only his first 2 reviews were that, everything else was scripted.
Seriously you're the dumbest person ITT, AVGN didn't start being shit until sometime 2010 or 2011 latest.
It's like saying AVGN was the best before he even started, fucking idiot.
I think the worst thing that ever happened to the show was mike.
>implying he doesnt care about FF
Dude denied Scarlets existence, said he had the same girlfriend for 8 years.
That's some fucking hardcore illness. And he still forces that unfunny, loud, annoying obnoxious Dr. Insano bullshit in every fucking scripted review. He JUST DOES NOT GET IT.
He only really cared about FF8. His FFX and XIII reviews are forced as all hell. Ultima was pretty good though, although mostly the start and end, the middle ones were full of shitty acting.
And yeah, the dudes got some serious mental problems, but I still enjoy his older stuff and Counter Monkey.
Rebuary is always gold too, but I'm a sucker for generic action, the 80s and explosions.
what, I thought it was super funny.
All this info about Betelgeuse! Mind blowing!!
>His FFX and XIII reviews are forced as all hell.
No they aren't...he's just not nostalgic about them in any way. That doesn't make them 'forced'. They are reviews and they are effective as reviews. Especially the 13 review.
The 10 review was not as good I'll give you that, but it really has nothing to do with the game so much as Spoony being shit at that time.
His hairline is receding past his head
Just like Jewwario he wishes he was dead
He'd rather have a cuckold wife
Buckle down and take his life
He'd rather stop making episodes
Instead he lets Mike on and he blows
He's the deadest man on the inside
He's got a really bitchy looking wife
He's wants a stroke outside golf
He's the washed up, unfunny James Rolf
Does anyone have a link or summary to where all of this TGWTG drama is? I used to watch Nostalgia Critic and want to see the kind of shit that has gone down since then. Has anything happened to members other than Spoony?
Linkara went from occasional bitching about over sexulisation to full on SJW POWER GIRL HAS BIG TITS AND IS THEREFORE RAPE
Doug tried to do a new thing, fucked it up BAD, and was forced to either go back to doing Nostalgia Critic or starve after he stated he hates the character now.
The rest I don't care enough about to even look up.
I don't understand. Game Grumps only make awful episodes and /v/ still tolerates that shit.
