The Angry Video Game Nerd

The Angry Video Game Nerd

The Angry Video Game Nerd is a web television series of farcical retrogaming video reviews created by and starring James Rolfe. The show generally revolves around retro game reviews that involve bitter rants against games he deems to be of particularly low-quality or poor design.

The Nerd is a short-tempered and foul-mouthed video game fanatic. He derives comic appeal from excessive and inventive use of profanity, frequent displays of explicit gestures, and a habitual consumption of beer (mostly Rolling Rock, but sometimes Yuengling). A particular characteristic, which has become something of a trademark of his character, is for him to describe, in great detail, extremely repulsive and painful, usually firmly scatological acts, and to claim that he would rather endure them than to play the game that he is reviewing. Varying amounts of physical comedy are mixed into the verbal abuses.

I guess the Nerd is really busy with his movie, there hasn't been a new episode of AVGN since early last December. Anyway, yesterday he appeared in an episode of GameTrailers' Pop Fiction (I recommend that show btw) and I added that episode as a special episode on this show. You can find it under specials > Pop Fiction: Cheetahmen II (feat: The Angry Video Game Nerd)

Technically it's not a new episode of AVGN, but we need something right ;) You can find the episode on the website of GameTrailers, under Pop Fiction.

... You know what, I just added Pop Fiction as a new show. Not sure yet if it will be approved or not, but if so, I'll make sure that it appears complete here as well.

Is this actually a tv show (with some episodes having actual airdates), or is suddenly adding webshows?
