Special 107 Con Bravo 2012: Doug & James

  • 2012-07-30T18:00:00Z — 20 mins

Con Bravo was my first appearance at a gaming convention outside the USA. It took place in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. I was glad to be there. My schedule was jam-packed with interviews, panels and autograph signings, one of which was taking place at A&C Game Store in Toronto.
Unfortunately, my wife and I spent the first day sitting at the airport waiting for our flight which was delayed perpetually. Turns out, after hours and hours of waiting, the flight was straight out CANCELLED. No one was there in person to help us rebook our flights. Their customer service was shit. After waiting on hold on the phone and struggling to get any wi-fi access out of our laptop, we found out there were no more flights open until the next day. Eventually, we chose to rent a car and drive. I wasn’t going to let anyone down!
Since we missed the first day, my schedule got really crammed. Furthermore, my main panel got cancelled, because the line at the autograph signing was never-ending. Most people seemed to prefer the autograph opportunity over the panel. In fact, the whole line applauded when we announced we would be extending the signing. We obviously didn’t want to turn anyone away.
Even though my panel had to be cancelled, I got to be on a panel with Doug Walker (The Nostalgia Critic) who is really great at entertaining crowds. Here is some video of the panel. It was recorded on an iPhone and is only brief clips. The video and audio quality isn’t that great, but it was the best we could do. I almost brought my real camera, but I’m glad I didn’t try because it would have been extra luggage that I’d have to check at the airport. After the flight was cancelled, they withheld everyone’s luggage until the following day. No, they couldn’t even unload the fucking cargo compartment and give everyone their luggage back!
The fans who came out were great! They were all very nice people and seemed truly happy to see me there. That means a lot to me. Thanks for all the p

This is a 32 minute guide to relaxation and inner peace. It’s something I always thought about doing as a joke, sort of like something Andy Kaufman would’ve done. It’s kind of along the lines of reading the Mega Man 2 book out loud.
It’s also something that you can genuinely enjoy and use to help yourself relax or drift away to the land of sleep.

The Nerd revisits the classic kart racer that started it all.

Impromptu video where Mike Matei discusses his involvement with the AVGN videos, and gives his outside perspective of AVGN and James Rolfe’s other films.

“Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie” is a passion project by independent filmmakers James Rolfe and Kevin Finn, based on the popular web series. The film is being produced outside the studio system, entirely funded by fan donations. Principle photography took place in Spring of 2012, in the Los Angeles area, with Jason Brewer as the DP. Additional filming is taking place on the East Coast. Editing is in its early stages.
The film is inspired by the famous Atari video game burial of 1982. Atari produced a game based on the biggest blockbuster movie of that year, E.T., and rushed it to meet the deadline for the Christmas shopping season. It was a commercial failure and millions of unsold game cartridges were buried in a desert landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Coincidentally, it’s not too far from Roswell, the landing site of a different kind of E.T.
The Trailer features music by Bear McCreary (Battlestar Gallactica, The Walking Dead). The track is called “Maverick Regeneration” and can be downloaded as part of the Play for Japan album. All proceeds go to help earthquake victims in Japan.
The final slate says “Coming this lifetime” because we have no idea how long it will take to complete. Any attempt to guess will only prove ourselves wrong. Independent films take a long time to finish. This one is no exception. It’s eventually expected to be released on DVD and/or Blu-ray, and to be available around the world, after showing to some live audiences in theater venues. Digital downloads is also an option. The immediate goal is to finish the film first.

Coverage of the live event hosted by James Rolfe, celebrating the release of the AVGN Movie Trailer on November 9th 2012, at the historic Colonial Theater in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, where The Blob was filmed.

It totals about 10 hours of bonus content, (12 hours including the main feature film), which is insane! That doesn’t even count the audio commentary track, and audience reaction track. It should be noted that half of the bonus content has already been posted online in some form like the trailers, web updates, Q&A’s, etc, now all together at home in one package, but it’s still about 5 hours of DVD/Blu-ray exclusives (9 hours of exclusives if you count the bonus audio tracks).

Note: The DVD version is not yet available. Getting it on a Blu-ray was a much bigger task, and we assume most people would want that. So the DVD will be coming later.

Note: The Blu-Ray is REGION FREE.

Note: I’m aware Nintendo has a contract with K’nex and that’s why there are no Nintendo themed Legos. What I mean is, it’s just a shame that they don’t exist. Because Nintendo Legos would be awesome!

This was a review I did a while back, but since then “Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara” has been released on various systems. Years back you could only play it in the arcade or for the Sega Saturn (Japan only).
However, in the past few years it’s been released on Xbox Live Arcade, PSN, Steam and Nintendo E-shop. It’s STILL one of my favorite arcade beat em’ ups of all time, and if you have never played it, you should give it a try. Note: For digital download releases, they've packaged it with Tower of Doom and now it's called “Chronicles of Mystara”.

Q*bert's Qubes game review by Mike Matei. Q*bert's Qubes was originally a coin-operated arcade game by Mylstar made in 1983. There was also a home port for the ColecoVision but here I focus on the somewhat rare Atari 2600 version.

In this video Mike Matei discusses several different versions of Wizard of Wor. Arcade, Atari 2600 and others. Wizard of Wor is essentially like a cross between Pac-man & Berzerk. Along with Gauntlet, it was one of the few early arcade games that used voice clips. WOW is also available on PS2 and PSP in Midway's Arcade Treasures Volume 2 and Midway Arcade Origins on Xbox 360.

Join the Nerd and friends as they blast their way through 10 levels of fun, fast paced 2D action based on the AVGN's adventures in his online series. With multiple playable characters, power ups, cameos galore, tons of secrets, and more, we've made a game that all fans of video games will enjoy. So grab that gamepad and pick up a copy of AVGNA today!

Don't have a Wii U? Live on a different rock? Don't worry! Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures will be coming to the 3DS and Europe shortly!

Please visit Nintendo eShop on Wii U to purchase! Click on eShop, then do a search for "AVGN".

Hooking up Multiple Video Game Systems by Mike Matei
Fans having been asking me for quite a while about how I hook up all my game consoles. My setup isn’t the most efficient thing in the world, but it gets the job done. There are probably better switchers out there I could be using, but this is just the way I’ve been doing it. I use mostly basic RCA Splitters that can be bought at local stores like Radio Shack and Target.
I would like to improve the way I have everything hooked up however. So if you have any ideas on how I can improve my gaming setup, please let me know.

I know there are 8 way RCA splitters out there, but really I need one more extreme then that, which is why I haven’t bothered upgrading. I need something that does more like 20 way…
What I really need is something that can has more ports for HDMI, Coaxial & RCA all together..

Here’s a list of the systems that are hooked up at my apartment now. And what method I’m using for each.

Nintendo Entertainment system (NES) - RCA (modded)
Famicom - Coaxial (i’d like to get a modded fermium but don’t have one yet)
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) - RCA
Nintendo 64 - RCA
Gamecube - RCA
Sega Genesis - RCA
Sega Saturn - RCA
Panasonic 3DO - RCA
Turbo Duo - RCA
Xbox - RCA
Playstation 2 - RCA
Dreamcast - RCA
Sega Master System - RCA
Atari 7800 - RCA (modded)
Atari 5200 - RCA (modded)
Wii U - HDMI
Retron 5 - HDMI
Xbox 360 - HDMI
Playstation 3 - HDMI
Ouya - HDMI

A Blu-ray that comes with a Batmobile! What more could you want? But don’t let the Joker near it or Bruce Wayne will need some auto insurance quotes =D

In May 1996, I learned the trials of filmmaking, while making a horror movie titled "A Night of Total Terror". Shortly afterwards, I documented it, with a behind-the-scenes video, made in July 1996. The original VHS-C tape of the documentary was damaged beyond repair. Recently, I discovered a 2nd generation copy, and used clips from it, to make this new documentary, in 2015.

The original "A Night of Total Terror" was 30 minutes long, but has gone through minor re-edits over the years.

Let's Play Ronin! For this episode of Talk About Games, Mike and Ryan look at Ronin! An indie action platformer with a vengeful heroine (much like Kill Bill).

Today is the 1 Year Anniversary of the premiere of Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. The first public screening was on July 21, 2014 at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. It was an epic night for all of us.

Here, for the first time on YouTube, is the special effects documentary from the Blu-ray/DVD. It shows the creative process behind the practical effects in the film.

Most of the film was shot in the Los Angeles area, inside studios and exterior locations which all required expensive permits. We also worked with union cast and union crew members. It was a big production, but ironically, many of the effects were done with a small local crew, Cinemassacre-style, after I returned home to the East Coast.

Enjoy this documentary, which only gives a small glimpse at the making of the film. There is so much more to it. I plan to release more videos like this, over time.

It's the first day of Fall! Let's get ready to celebrate the Halloween season, with the 9th annual Monster Madness! This time, it will be another random assortment of movie reviews. Classic horror, New horror, spanning the timeline from 1925-2015. I'll take care of lots of major league horror titles, and answer many of last year's requests from the fans. There's lots of coverage of Roger Corman, George Romero, and also Academy Award winning horror films. There's a big emphasize on public domain films, as well as unscripted videos with Mike in it. This time, Monster Madness will have a presence on YouTube, for the first time since it's original incarnation! About a dozen of the videos will be Cinemassacre.com exclusives, but for YouTube, those days will be filled in with reruns and re-edits that have never been on YouTube before. So wherever you're watching, you'll be getting 31 videos!

For now, here's a video showing the bumpers from all the past years, as well as a guide for newcomers.

Meet the cast from Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. This is one of the many mini-documentaries on the Blu-ray, introducing all the main characters from the film, besides the Nerd.

Happy October! James and Mike kick off the Halloween season with the remake of Ringu which made Asian Horror films more widely popular.

This is the first year in a long time when Monster Madness is going to have a presence on YouTube. Still, about 1/3 of the videos will be Cinemassacre.com exclusives (only on the website). In place of those videos, we will be posting old videos from previous Monster Madness years, that have never been on YouTube before. So it's still going to be 31 Monster Madness videos on YouTube.

Thanks to Travis from A Pyro Design for the logo!

Today, I bring you one of the early Roger Corman schlock-fests. The Wasp Woman (1959).

Monster Madness Rerun, covering the Universal Mummy franchise. This is a much shorter re-edit, from what was originally all separate videos and longer.

James and Mike talk about one of the craziest Troma movies, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, that is most EGGcelent.

See Lon Chaney, the first ever horror celebrity in an archetypical role as a mad scientist in an old dark house on a stormy night. All the classic cliches, in this early example from the silent era.
