Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures

Check out Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures in action

The parodic platformer has passed through Greenlight and will release on Steam

The Angry Video Game Nerd's assault on all things sh*tty and retro will soon break from the confines of live-action footage and into the digital world. Following last week's teaser trailer, here comes pre-alpha gameplay of Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures, submitted for your dissection.

With NES Zapper in hand, the pixelated Nerd races through levels modeled after the highest and lowest points of old-school gaming, from Mega Man 2 and Castlevania to the ball-busting Silver Surfer. He even confronts a Cacodemon from Doom made entirely out of feces and dodges a swarm of cock-and-ball missiles. Subtle and reserved, this game is not.

AVGN Adventures is still on track for PCs later this year, and it looks like Steam users will also be served. It has passed through Greenlight in less than two weeks, a testament to the Nerd's ravenous fanbase. The game certainly looks decent thus far, and considering this footage is from a pre-alpha build, it's bound to look even snazzier down the line.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.

I've been thinking of starting up a criticism-minded "game of the month" type podcast. Would anyone be interested in something like that? If you'd wanna be part of it, let me know, I'm generating ideas and looking for contributors
