So apparently, someone named HugoTheIcyFire made a video making a response to the Nerd's review of Majora's Mask. In a nutshell, he criticized the Nerd for making bad points about the game. There were some things he agreed with him, but he basically said it was just OK but expected better. In my opinion, there are some things I can agree with, but isn't the point of the video just for entertainment? I mean, his reviews for Super Mario Bros 3 and Castlevania II aren't James's actual thoughts, he's just exaggerating it. You weren't really supposed to take it seriously. Please, DO NOT send this guy hate, he's just giving his opinion. But overall, You be the judge. Go ahead and respond if you like.
What's on your mind?
I find it odd why they never gave an official announcement why Kyle Justin left Cinemassacre. For those who don't know, he was the main guitarist for the AVGN show and is sometimes an actor. They gave a reason for why Bootsy left, it's because he wanted to work more on his music. But never for Kyle. There has been speculation that he's taking care of his family, or he's working on a remodeling company. I can give my own theory as to why, but I don't know if it will do it justice. If you guys have any evidence or want to give your own theories, than that will be great. Most can agree that Kyle Justin was a nice and funny person, working on the iconic AVGN theme. I bet I'm not the only person who's speculated on this topic, so I don't know if this is really necessary. But it's nice to talk about.
AVGN IS FUCKING STUPID!
I think we need to start a project of cleaning up some of the comments on the pages. Some of them are flat-out outragerous, disrespectful, and some just completely irelevant.
First of all, thanks to all the helpful anonymous contributors who've edited the wiki. Whether it was spelling mistakes, factual errors, or putting Transcripts together, you've really made a huge difference in the quality of the work here.
Unfortunately, some recent issues have forced my hand to turn anonymous contributions off. There's a lot of things I need to do with the wiki: make it mobile-friendly, fill the community to-do list, get up-to-date on the latest changes to Wikia itself, a whole fuckton of stuff. The bottom line is that it's consuming too much of my time to deal with a tiny, sad minority of children who've been abusing the privilege of anonymity. For that reason, I've had to revoke that privilege for everyone, so that I'm able to focus on what's really important.
To those anonymous contributors who have been an excellent part of the community, I would very much still like to have your help. Please consider signing up for a Wikia account, not only will it allow you to continue contributing here, but it would make it easier for everyone to collaborate on their edits, facilitate organization and improve communication.
Hopefully, once the site has been brought into the current century, I'll be in a position to turn the anonymous contributions back on. If you don't like the decision I've made, I'm with you, I don't like it either. The best thing everyone could do to bring anonymous contributions back is to sign up and help me get this fixer-upper of a wiki into fucking awesome shape. I'll be populating the To-Do list in the coming weeks, so everyone will have an idea of what needs to be done.
Take care and feel free to leave a comment.
Gosh, this was a mistake and a wasted opportunity to keep the serie´s quality. The series were recovering after that messy scramble with Lloyd Kaufman. Maybe the videos were a bit boring but still entertaining. 2015 was more or less decent and the beginning of this year was good. But now, the quality is declining yet again. Don´t get me wrong, i know who Beavis and Butthead were, i´ve heard of those character some years ago and even watched some clips from their episodes in YouTube. Specially, the one where Beavis drinks too much soda and becomes Cornholio. But still, i couldn´t get a single laugh from the Nerd. The humour was pathetic and nothing like the old videos.Shouldn´t he retire his Nerd character? Like, the series are agonizing and need to stop
I think this article is getting too unwieldy to edit. It's covering many of the sub-series from Cinemassacre and that's too much for a single article, which is only supposed to be about "James & Mike Mondays".
Splitting the page into different articles makes sense, considering that all these sub-series have at least 10 episodes to them (save maybe "Bootsy Beats"). I'm talking about, specifically:
- Talk About Games
- Mike & Bootsy
- "Bootsy Beats..."
I'm going to create a new article for each of these series and put the information in the J&MM article about each series into each appropriate article. James & Mike Mondays should be only about that series, not three other series.
What does everybody think? I'll change it next week if no one else can think of something better or gives a good reason to not split the page.
The AVGN is still keeping his fun; at least, he still makes me laugh a bit. What do you think of the new direction he´s taking? Did you think the time-travel in Megaman Games was a bad or a great idea? And what about Paperboy? Dull and monotone, or classic and hilarious?
I don´t know but i don´t like the direction the AVGN started going on with all those unnecessary invited guest characters. Wizard of Oz, Toxic Crusaders, Odyssey... So many episodes ruined and wasted, all because of those cartoon characters like Nerdy Turd and Cowardly Lion. Just plain annoying. What was the purpose apart just interrupting James?
Personally, i think the AVGNs webseries are getting tired. J&M Mondays seems like an attempt to bring back all the fun and humour that the Nerd lost during 2012. I also give a chance to Board James and Know What´s Bullshit even when most of people ignores these videos.
I think the best and funniest season was 2008. The 2007 episodes were funny and entertaining as well but 2008 takes the cake. The webseries started pretty dull and monotone but after 2007, it had much more variety. Not only talking about videogames, but also game history, consoles and accessories. Gotta admit, he made some mistakes like the Wizard of Oz episode but the rest is decent and acceptable. In fact, when watching episodes post-2008, i´m more interested in the information more than the review itself
Toxic Avengers is, without doubt, the worst of all. Stupid humor, stupid jokes. Should be deleted
What I think would really piss the AVGN off is a fan made Super Nintendo game where he, Gamer Girl, Andre The Black Nerd and James Kyle must defeat a boss in each of the twelve LJN worlds in order to get back home. 1. Shark Ocean: Mega Shark, 2. Karate Dojoke: Kong Fu Kid, 3. Adventures in Excellence: Phil and Fred, 4. Time Racers: McBully (Back To The Future), 5. Wild West: McOutlaw(Back To The Future 2&3), 6. Juicy Beetles: Mr. Bugsprey, 7. Space Hunter: Space Creature Queen (Alien 3) 8. Punishment Shooters: Puzzle Face, 9. Judgement Steelmill: Liquid Metal Man (Terminator 2 (Sega)), 10. Forest of Spells: Dark Wizard (Warlock) 11. Boo! Haunted House: Bimmy (Freddy's glove on a giant chain) & Jimmy (Jason Voorhees with a chainsaw) and 12. Who Framed Me in Cartoon Land?: Fred Fuchs (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?).
I seriously doubt it, but a Angry Video Game Nerd vs Nostalgia Critic Rematch could be a possibility.
Board james did not kill mike and bootsy it was the damn phone!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
After watching all of the series of Board James, I'm stuck on whether or not BJ actually killed his friends, is schizophrenic and just *thinks* he did, that Mike and Bootsy were figments of his imagination, or that he just lives in a reality different to ours where fantastic things *can* happen, like the Nerd does.
I think it ultimately doesn't matter how much we talk about it, we can believe different things based on what we notice in the video, and how we, as fans, personally interpret it.
More or less, since the series' POV is more obviously from Board James' perspective at this point, *everything* in the series is relative to what he perceives and believes in. It could be "all in his head" or not, maybe Mike and Bootsy existed or they didn't. That's part of why I like the series, the whole "what if?" aspect, makes for great conversations.
Ultimately, I think that's what James (Rolfe) was going for, something that would create speculation and theories among the fans, because great films and creations are starting points to further thoughts and discussion. That's how the genres in film (and YouTube videos) continue to get better, we keep pushing that creative envelope into places we have yet to see.
For reference, James has been posting some fan theories on the Cinemassacre blog, maybe check those theories out, too, if you're interested:
I'd like to see the theories and conversations continue here, if possible. What's your Board James theory? What proves that theory? Do you have video timestamp citations?
Do you think Board James was helpless to prevent the awful things that happened, is he just an evil murderer that needs to relieve what's left of his conscience, or just batshit insane?
This article is really a very outdated copy of this Wikipedia article.
Keeping a brief list of episodes (along with internal wiki links to the Transcript, Episode summary and games played) seems enough to me. It, at least, shouldn't stay in its current form IMO, because it's become really huge and there are already episode summary pages on the wiki.
Made a new image and welcome phrase for the Main Page, they're both part of a new Wikia feature called a Hero Image (beta).
The visual format of the Wiki as it stands isn't even final, but it hopefully represents a combination of ideas I've discussed with the other admins.
But this time, I'd love to hear from all of you, editors and viewers alike. Do you think you have a good idea to further improve the Wiki's look? Do you have experience in CSS? Do you love or hate something about the layout as it currently stands?
All opinions, expertise and critiques are most welcome.
I watched the Ghostbusters episode and in one part, the Nerd that that the game was worse than Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. So that made me think which is worse. Which is worse?
