@Doogrisa @TwistedSpeech Filming begins April 1. I'm shitting my pants.
@ThatJacketGuy Yes I've seen quite a bit of him out here in Los Angeles. Found out he loves Megadeth as much as me. And yes, his videos are awesome. Check'em out!

@TwistedSpeech It was my wife for sure. She wore the Freddy glove that reaches over the couch. Mike wore the glove the rest of the time. Perhaps there was some confusion in how they each explained it. I think Mrs Nerd meant to specify it was the conclusion to the Friday the 13th episode.

For some reason, the reply button is not working all of a sudden, but in response to OlaviPössi and samuellozada94:
I love Freddy Vs Jason! I think he meant the remakes of Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm St.

@metalcommand@Valaris I can't remember Mary Shelly's Frankenstein that well. It was a long time ago. I didn't like it very much. But Bram Stoker's Dracula I think is okay. It's beautiful to look at, at least. Besides, it has Fred Fuchs.
@ZohaibQureshi You realize it's an internet video, right? Not a major motion picture.
@IanFisch Who's to say we haven't already contacted a game designer? One step ahead of you buddy. This is the reason why it's tempting to leak important details. All you know about the movie is that it will involve some special effects. Little do you realize, it may be more to your liking than you think it is.
But no, I will clarify that it is a narrative. Not a documentary or mocumentary. I'm also no actor myself and certainly no improv style actor like Sacha Baron Cohen. One thing I am is the "fuckin' Nerd".

@FAKoLL Yeah I wasn't sure if it was US only, but either way, the movie will explain it. And if I concentrate on other projects instead, maybe that one will become a trailer.
2 years, 9 months ago on Nerd Log - Thinking Way Ahead
@Nexusflame@ErichStevenson@pegasus187@gamez Between now and then, if I can get a quick AVGN out, I'll try, but since the movie will be priority, the episodes are pretty much on a big break now. I'd hate to do a sub-par episode anyway. I didn't think Bible Games 3 was all that good. I needed more time.
2 years, 9 months ago on AVGN autograph memorabilia - Final month for fundraiser
@CruiseshipzStudios Yeah, that's classic! I never had HBO back then, but I'd see it whenever the cable provider gave free HBO for a week. It was a tease and that logo made it seem like you were watching luxury TV.
2 years, 9 months ago on Nerd Log - The Title
@sterling.treadwell Yeah I didn't like how sensitive it was to movement also. I've done some iphone videos before that turned out way better, but they were in natural light. Maybe it does better outdoors.
@fightgenie I'd love to. I might. I'll see if time permits.
@Mister Buckethead Yeah you're right. It's like "Star Trek". General audiences can watch it without having seen the others. The movie itself is kind of crafted that way, you don't have to see the episodes. If you've seen'em, all the better. If not, you can start with the movie.
@gamez Mike will be continuing to do some videos. We'll also be releasing old AVGN bonus features from the old DVD's online for the first time, all the little behind the scenes extras, many which are nearly 6 years old now, so we decided the time is right. Also there's about 5 un-released OverAnalyzers episodes still. And 6 un-released movie reviews (by me.) I'll be posting webcasts of my progress on the film. And they'll probably be other stuff too.
@StefanoPavone@FullMoonHowl Most likely it'll be on BluRay too. We're shooting HD so I don't see why not.
Yeah, what's the point of region code? I never understood that. Just so people would have to buy it twice if they move to another country? So no, I would never do that to my own DVD's. You buy'em anywhere in the world. It's yours to watch.
2 years, 10 months ago on Nerd up!
@MrPWNGER Well thank you, but the best way I can explain it is that the movie simply does not have a multi-million dollar budget. Not yet anyway.
Oh boy. This is the reason I should never read comments anymore.
Yesterday, I showed the video to my wife. The conversation went something like this.
MRS: "Why didn't you show the vomit?"
ME: "Because it would have been messy."
MRS "Like fake shit all over our kitchen floor in the Bugs Bunny episode. THAT was messy."
ME: "Well this time I didn't think it was necessary to show it. I thought it was more tasteful NOT to show the puke."
MRS: "But you've showed everything else. You always show shit in your videos."
ME: "That's true. I've been shitting in the AVGN videos for years. But I feel like leaving this one to the imagination. Plus, it's not like it hasn't been done before. It's an old joke. I think I've seen it in both Family Guy and South Park. It's cliche."
MRS: "I'm just saying, the fans will probably expect you to show the vomit."

Well, we were both wrong. People are SO UNPREDICTABLE.

@davidsworld3 I explained all the rules to the game. How is everyone missing that?
@Zym Yeah, watch out.
2 years, 10 months ago on AVGN Volume 5 DVD is out now!
@Shabby 1. There's no region lock.
2. Haha, well the episode run times are the same as online generally. As far as total run time, I didn't add them all up, but it's similar in length to the other DVD's, even though there's less episodes last year, they were pretty long episodes.
@Jordanv78 I haven't seen Kyle in a year and a half. No reason. Just the way things go and the way our separate lives have taken us. I miss him too, but he's still alive. He's still out there, and still a friend.
@Manos Yep! I'm expecting it to go up tonight.
2 years, 10 months ago on Status
@mcvayrob No, it's okay. Everything will be taken care of. It's only a temporary move, but still a lot of work to do. Mike is helping a lot with videos, so there will always be some kind of content on the site. We shot a lot of things a while back in advance, so we've been posting a backlog.
@nudi_joe Have any of the AVGN nazis looked at the calendar? it's not the first wednesday yet. 2 more days, people. Relax.
2 years, 10 months ago on Turkish Star Wars
@JakeLaFortune Yeah, I don't why I said it. But it's true I had that same feeling. When you're young and trying to find an identity for yourself. Feeling insignificant. But the truth is, you always are that somebody. Back then, I was making movies. I was doing what I enjoy and there was even somebody making a video about me. I guess you don't always realize what you have until you look back.
2 years, 10 months ago on ROLFE: A No-Budget Dream (2002)
@sterling.treadwell Oh yes, and I still plan to do some old school FX in the AVGN movie. In the episodes, I do quick 2D photoshop animations because that's the easiest way I can do it in a short period of time. For the movie, we plan to do more effects "in front of the camera".
@Leek@Bigdaddyclean More like a Nerd!
@sterling.treadwell Thanks! I think you may be talking about Cinemassacre 200. (made in 2008) It's an updated version of Cinemassacre 101 (made in 2002.) The old version is made up of interviews with my friends. I'm a little uncomfortable with showing that version as it may come off as self-praise.
Maybe, one day, I'll re-post it in some form. It may even still be on YouTube or somewhere, because I did post it long before, even in the pre-YouTube days, as quicktime files, compressed til the point they almost looked like mosaics.
@KyleLutnick Thank you and everyone for the very nice comments.
@Nintendo_Frog Your post has me scratching my head, because what you said very much sums up EXACTLY what this video is. It's a video of me "rehearsing" at a young age, and it something that has a strong influence on the rest of my career. Filmmaking.
I too am a huge fan of metal and hard rock music. Think of this as listening to Metallica's No Life Til Leather demo. And sure, if anything else Pre- Kill'em All would surface, I'd be be fascinated to listen to, no matter how poor the quality.
If a vintage Steven Spielberg film that he made as a kid would ever turn up, I'd love to be able to watch it, even if it was terrible. That being said, this video I posted is complete crap. But that's not the point.
I don't see how this is not related. I make movies, and this is an early humble example of that. I guess your comments just don't consider that making movies is my passion, and you only care about game reviewing, which is fine.
2 years, 11 months ago on The Green Monster That Walked Into My House (1993)
@firewarrior2112 They were mostly in-camera cuts, meaning there was no editing originally. I did in fact go back and edit a little now, nearly 20 years later. Just to make it move a bit quicker.
@yonoid818 an old keyboard I had. It was one of the built in loops.
@J03_b We shot this video last summer.

@Freddy20_ Thanks, we did film more OA last May. (Yeah, been a while, right?) But lately, we've all been to busy to finish editing them. They just need a few finishing touches, but haven't been priority. Hope it's not too long before you eventually see them.

@LukasSprehn Some quality is better than others since lots of the movies were shot on VHS. Either way, it's better than what you see on the web.

OlaviPössi. The DVD's ship internationally, including the AVGN ones. Sorry if there was some kind of issue, but they should be able to send anywhere,
@OlaviPössi yeah with the static transitions. That used to happen a lot when I stopped the tape. I done some editing to save u the boring parts. But I had to keep the static. It's classic

@salculd wow I bet it was. That's right, there was a guide. I think it even showed u how to do Guns N Roses album covers.
@mjcanan I wonder too. I knew there was one on South Street but don't know if it's there anymore. Also, there was one in NJ. I think Marlton or Cherry Hill, somewhere. It closed a long time ago. TLA was the best, hope there's still one around.

@ElectricGamer I'd say they're pretty long this year. Some of the reviews go as much as 10 minutes.

@gamers_love_sprite I don't think it will top last year either. But there is A LOT of over-analytical commentary this time, so you be the judge.
