Watch the Angry Video Game Nerd get roasted


3:00 AM on 08.03.2013



You've never really "made it" until you've been roasted, and by God, James Rolfe has "made it." However you feel about the direction The Angry Video Game Nerd has taken, whether you've been a longtime fan or not one at all, you have to give props to his contributions to geek culture. This guy made filming yourself playing videogames and talking smack popular. That's both commendable and reprehensible at the same time.

This past June at the TooManGames convention in Oaks, Pennsylvania, a group of Internet personalities gathered to honor James with a proper roasting. Amongst them were brentalfloss, Brett "Captain S" Vanderbrook, Stephanie Yuhas and Matt Conant of Cinevore, Noah Houlihan of +2 Comedy, Nathan Barnett in his Keith Apicary persona, and Newt Wallen of Underbelly. Attending via pre-recorded video were Stuttering Craig from ScrewAttack, Doug "Nostalgia Critic" Walker, Fraser Agar from Video Games Awesome, and Pat the NES Punk.

As is the case with any roast, there were some winners and some not-so winners. Brent started the roast out strong, Keith of course killed the entire room, and a couple others surprised me. On the low end, Doug was pretty flat, and Pat was simply brutal. The entire roast is just under an hour and fifteen minutes, so jump around or watch the whole thing if you have nothing else better to do on a Saturday morn.

'Togekiss watching Doduo take a crap' and other mistaken sprites

Instead of taking a proper lunch break away from my computer today, I got caught up in this funny, nostalgic NeoGAF thread about "sprites that look like things they're not supposed to." Older games allowed and even encouraged...more

Hahah what: Don't Be Patchman is a 'sneak-and-grow' game

As I watched the first video of Don't Be Patchman (below), I thought I had an okay feel for what it is. Plant apples, get an apple tree, shake it for more apples. Got it. I'm no Animal Crossing slouch. Next video, ...more

You can now eat Xbox One burgers in Hong Kong

Everyone has their morning rituals. Some people need their coffee. Others jog. I peruse Japanese website Gigazine hoping to see pictures of bizarre and wonderful foods. It's rarely videogame related, so I haven't shared this ...more
