Hmmm, Roger Corman is clearly a genius. Putting in a spaceship with tits, and a bunch of women who look like hookers... It's brilliant for what he is claimed to do. It was said that he would show up on set from time to time, tear out a few pages, and fire a bunch of people. The way he had it set up, if the funding really got cut, he could burn the entire script, fire 90% of the crew, keep what was already shot, and degrade the shitty movie into a porno with a magnificent story and wonderful special effects for it's genre. Hell, after the initial success of Star Wars, I'm sure there would be plenty of people who wouldn't mind a porn with scenes where people aren't humping if it kind of looks like Star Wars.

@vasilis I don't see why not. I know for a fact from a different video that he has or has had at least two of them. He stacks one right on top of the other. He bought one for 2.50, and I'm guessing the second was a donation or he got it for a similar price.

You know, I remember when I was 8, I couldn't wait for this thing to come out. I played Knuckles Chaotix at Epcot in Florida, and even though I was looking at the complete product in front of me, I had to wait like a year and a half for it to come out so I could get one. Finally I got one for my birthday, and I couldn't for the life of me get this unholy fucker of mothers to work. I remember taking it back to the store and the clerk asked if I wanted to try again, and I remember it as the first time I ever reasoned before.
It was at that time I realised that they only game I really wanted to play was Knuckles Chaotix, and that game confused the hell out of me. I let it go, and enjoyed my genesis as it was, and the damn thing faded away. Never had the CD either. Only game I wanted for that was Sonic CD, and I didn't know it existed until I got the computer port of it on the very first computer my family ever owned, that bullshit grey boxed Packard Bell.
I'd like to comment on how cheesy and relatively poorly written it was, but I have to keep in mind it was written for little kids, and I sat and listened to the whole thing. Really seems like Megaman, being freed from cold, logical algorithms should have had some inner monologues contemplating his path. Maybe had some doubt or exhaustion creep into him, maybe experience hunger... The writer really didn't have much imagination with it.
Then again, maybe that was part of the point. The Mortal Kombat book was a full sized book (while I haven't read it to check if it was much better), and this one was designed to be short. All and all, I have some fairly solid writing skills, and if I was given a year to work on it and was paid to do it, I could have made it more interesting. After all, Megaman felt pain and hot, and tired, but seldomly did he feel sad, angry, or much of anything, and what he did feel had no body language; he might as well have stood a robot in the story
Of course, none of this is Jame's fault, he is just reading it. Cool story bro. *Thumbs up*

@kushdc No, of course not. I have seen the updates mentioning that he had plans for AVGN for many years to come after the movie, or at least had plenty of games to talk about, and I also know that the video that was uploaded above was made in 2006, and released as part of a DVD collection of his works at that point. It was merely advice that, in all reality, he probably already knew. I am a TCOM minor, and a very important part of the film making industry is networking, and now that he is in California, it's a great opportunity for him to expand his contact list. I was just trying to say that once he gets some steady work in the industry, whether an editor working on other people's movies, a cameraman, or a directer bringing his own creations to life, he continues the AVGN series when he can. It beats the alternative of saying "Fuck your dreams, do AVGN forever!"

Ahhh James, life is crazy. You may have a lot of control with your first job, but the second will be off the wall and come from somewhere unpredictable. You, however, have a bright future in film making. While in California, be sure to get as many contacts as you can, and soon enough you will start raking in the big bucks on the big screen. Just be sure to remember what really launched your popularity, and make these videos when you can.
Any cooking recipie I ever get my hands on is nothing more than an excuse for me to burn down the neighborhood. Not much in the way of skill in cooking, but it all sounds delicious. Maybe I will tell the fire department to standby, and I'll give it a go.

Was that a role of silver duct tape on the toilet paper dispenser during the motivation scene before the montage?

Very well done, but you see he forgot the pepper. You see, you need the pepper to unlock the freshness, because without the pepper it's stale and it is hard as shit. Shut up, I know what I'm doing, and it needs pepper. Plus, you can throw some over your shoulder for good luck. Wha...? You think it's salt? I think you are a fuck face.

You know, Mike acted a lot like what I always pictured Gollum to be like in the lord of the rings before the movie.

I also love how you knew all the answers after they already figured it out and made a video about it. It's kind of like if I bought a piece of software that took a little extra brainpower to figure out how to opperate, because it came with russian missile launch codes instead of instructions on how to opperate the program, watched some kind of tutorial online, watched a problem occur and watch them troubleshoot it, then told them "Of course you forgot this step, it's so obvious. Derrr.

Hey kids, do you hate your friends to no end? Is sharing a screen with them the most miserable experience of your life? would you rather stab yourself in the eyes and collapse your nasal bridge than sit there knowing you are looking at the exact same thing as the piece of shit motherfucker you invited into your own home? Now you can have the best of both worlds with the Virtual Reality Stuntmaster!
The Virtual Reality Stuntmaster offers the greatest technology two gamegears merged together has to offer, and it's easy to install! Simply put the two video lines into the ports in the back of your console you completely forgot about, clip the support beam to your shirt, solve the mystery of the AC adapter that is 1.5x thicker than the other AC adapters in order to contain it's awesomeness, and there you go you elitist assholes.
The Virtual Reality Stuntmaster includes it's own line of multiplayer games, including "Face Fracture" Where a doctor tries to figure out what the hell happened to your nose, and "You can't see me", where you tap your ass around the streets of your home town with a stick.
I'm sure he would love LJN Greatest Hits. Gives him room to make AVGN: The Shitting. Then, just because he can, he could make a third movie about another terrible game, and call in AVGN: The Movie II

You can't hit the sticker putting it INTO the NES, but it's spot on accurate for taking it out.

Shit looks so crazy and insane... I bet if you watch it on Acid, it would look like a traditional, run-of-the-mill 70s horror film. I'm not saying that Americans don't produce some fucked up shit (Just look at Ren and Stimpy, and cartoons like that), but why is it that Japan seems to have a monopoly on insane and chaotic media? Japan's culture revolves more around a group, while America's tend to be more around the individual, so maybe shows like this, if any purpose at all, are meant to be seen together with friends and they together try to give the images meaning.

I bet James is just happy to be able to find something, knowing it's a shit factory before ever picking it up. It's a game about the best qualities of owning a shitting dog while subtracting the annoying qualities of love, loyalty, and companionship.

Coming soon to a nightmare near you. LJN proudly presents Supergirl 64. Only on CD-I.

Just started following the movie a little. I know you just about got the financing situation just about out of the way and I'm a few months late to that party, but one thing I think you may want to consider if you haven't already is contacting Rolling Rock (I think that's the beer you drink) and try to get a bit of product placement money, since I'm sure the beer will be in the movie anyway. Even if you can finish the money off of fan donations, you can use the surplus as seed money for future projects.
Of course, without knowing much about your personal life, I suspect you studied TCOM at collage like me, so chances are the idea already came to mind for you.

@LucioHernandezSolis Well, not necessarily. In earlier videos, James said that much of the shooting will be done in Cali with actors and certain pieces of studio work, that's not to say the project won't go back to Jersey (At least I think he is from Jersey) And do some shooting in Cinemassacre HQ.

I don't know if you want any ideas from fans for a future movie that may be two or three years down the road after the AVGN movie, but one idea I had while watching the video is that the signs, which are everywhere, actually serve as wards against a spirit that is attracted to every community above, say 300 people on the planet. Then, a windstorm comes along, or a few kids steal the signs from the neighborhood, and from then on, people walking along the street start to see the figure in black with shining eyes just staring at them during the day, there one moment, gone the next. At night there are break-ins, murders, fires, all seeming to happen to people the apparition watched within three days of the sighting, and even with all the technology thrown at the situation, no apparent culprit can be found.

Well, Mrs. Nerd, let me just start off by saying you look like an angel, and in the picture provided, it kind of looks like the unholy shit demon is trying to mask his pain as he burns up trying to touch the holy bible. I assume you picked the picture?
Anyway, my question (Sorry if it has already been asked, I'm not sorting through 260 comments to find out) What was your reaction the first time you realized that Jame's had an... affinity to taking fake shits on games?
