The AVGN pulls out and reviews as many video game magazines as he can find, except for Nintendo Power. From Atari Age, to GamePro, to some lesser known gaming magazines, the 80s and 90s were filled with great reads. The walkthroughs, reviews, previews, ratings... and the terrible ads. This is episode 166 of the Angry Video Game Nerd season 13.

There wasn't an AVGN episode in February... so we're going to release two in March. Our goal is to upload one or two episodes a month from now on. Sorry for the delay. Oh, and just in case you missed it, we covered Kingdom Hearts in January: fivid.net/video/video--LpJnN9Imbg.html Thanks for watching.

ah the old collections, I was like too young to read even the manuals back then but I wanted the magazines because of the pictures lol, didn't even bother to read the whole magazines, and still don't XD, got piles of them and still haven't read the articles.
Laughing up a storm when the mullet bit came. Ah, damn it. I totally had one, too!

I dare anyone to look up X Man. I'm not talking about X men either. Its the one the Nerd talked about on his episode of bad game covers. Its the last one of the episode. Just look it up. FIvid has it. Just thank me later.

Terminator 2 Judgement Day was a good game. I loved Contra 3, too. However, T2 was hardcore. I don't even know if there were cheat codes for it. Contra pretty much always involved playing with cheat codes.

6:28 - It's kinda funny in hindsight, considering how many "gamer" products that are overpriced just for the sake of it exist today. Sure, some third party products are nice and some accessories are pretty cool, but a bunch of them are just plain bad or useless overpriced stuff with that "gamer" branding.

I'm hoping to see the Angry Video Game Nerd do a review on Futurama for the PS2, that's one of the WORST games I've ever played.

Watcging this made me "hate" myself for throwing away some gaming magazines i had as a kid. Now that i'm older and want to re.aquire them , there are no copies to be found. Not that they are expensive, but just hard to find....

I know you said you would never play a CD32 game again, but you might want to reconsider for one specific title. It’s a horrible game that is on-par with LGN’s atrocities, a mockery of one of the greatest anime movies of all time. I am suggesting that you review....Akira.
Terminator T-X3
It’s funny what they got away with back then and now everyone looses their shit over baby zombies, lol.

You should play medal of honor frontline on HARD difficulty. That game is hard as balls you will rage so much and die like a billion times. Its great. Complete the game in its full and dont use any cheats.

In those days video games couldn't suck, as we had no concept of that. We just told yourself that the game went over your head and threw it in the embargo pile.

Actually I would have loved something like that for the thumb I used on the D-Pad. It always hurt something fierce after playing Street Fighter II / TURBO for awhile. Especially when I was playing against other people.
