Online Series (AVGN, Nostalgia Critic, web comics etc)

Postby Andrew on Wed Dec 01, 2010 8:29 pm

We've had a couple of individual threads for online series here in the Entertainment section before but neither really took off, so I thought perhaps we could try a central thread for all online series such as the Angry Video Game Nerd, Nostalgia Critic, web comics and so on. The ones you like, the ones you don't like, favourite episodes/strips, latest episodes/strips...talk about it here.

So...who's a fan, and what are the ones you watch/read most often?

Mine:

- Angry Video Game Nerd
- Nostalgia Critic, Ask That Guy With The Glasses and Doug's specials/sketches (don't really check out Bum Reviews that much)
- Nostalgia Chick
- LordKat's Until We Win

I'll also check out videos from the Blistered Thumbs team, Angry Joe and other TGWTG members from time to time. I really enjoyed Kickassia earlier this year, indeed I'm thinking about buying the DVD.

Definitely with you on ChannelAwesome crew. 90% of them put out really quality stuff, even if i dont like their "character" or content that much: theres alot of work put into all the editing and jokes. Fantastic standard of quality other.

I used to watch AVGN but he's bored me lately.

The Guild may be the best webseries I've ever seen, especially seasons 1 and 3 (havent watched 4 yet)

IllwillPress-The Cult of Foamy pulled me in and will never let me go. He may be a whiny goth kid, but the shit JIM puts out is hysterical and few things on the web have made me laugh as hard as Foamy the Squirrel has over the years.

Xkcd-awesome webcomic
used to enjoy Dark Legacy comics when I was a WoW geek.
Penny Arcade and the usual geeky regulars
Scott Johnson, no matter which series is pretty hysterical also.

AVGN whenever it's on Gametrailers

Zero Punctuation every Wednesday

I used to watch the screw attack videos on GT but that kind of whimpered away.

I also catch Halo Reach: Fails of the Weak (haha, puns) from Achievement Hunter, Halo/CoD "Top 10 Series", and I'm subscribed to numerous other Halo Fails series'.

If it starts getting consistent it would be nice, but I follow Botchamania closely.

Absolutely, their work is really impressive. I haven't watched this week's Nostalgic Critic yet, I'll post some thoughts in this thread once I do.

Would you say that because he's gone to a lighter schedule with the AVGN episodes (and thus there's a lot of build up for one video a month) or you're just not into the videos anymore? I'm still enjoying what he's producing, it's a shame there's only one per month but understandable given his other projects. What do you think of the AVGN movie he's hinted at?

I guess its just he's done so many games and so many episodes he's getting to a point where i've never even remotely heard of the things he's playing. And then things like revisiting Back to the Future feel like cheating to me. My interest with him was mainly old games i used to rent or own that i actually enjoyed as a kid but are truly terrible. Its like he focuses too much on his other projects rather than AVGN. I wouldnt even mind if he did current and less nostalgic reviews, but do stuff people know/have heard of

Im not so sure about an avgn movie, i dont like most of his eps where he brings in Bugs/Spidey/the characters torturing him in game. A few times its been funny but most of the time it falls flat for me. I get the feeling the movie would include alot of that.

Forgot zero punctuation. Love his crazy british/aussie ass.

Fair enough. I don't mind most of the episodes with those elements but I don't think you're alone in preferring the more straightforward reviews. I see what you mean about reviewing lesser known titles making for less interesting episodes, sometimes I've thought the same about some of the Nostalgic Critic episodes but sometimes my unfamiliarity with the game or movie helps make the episode entertaining. His four part series on Castlevania last October were some of my favourite AVGN episodes.

Watched the latest Critic ep on Waterworld. To this day I've never watched the whole thing and I can't say I'm compelled to after watching the review. As usual, he managed to put a humourous spin on what really does seem to be as mediocre a movie as I've heard it to be.

There's a new Nostalgia Chick up today as well, Man in the Iron Mask. Pretty good, nice to see her producing some new stuff.

New AVGN is out and it's a clip show. It's understandable due to his other projects taking up his time but still a little disappointing since he's only doing one episode a month. Having said that, some of the comments on the video are positively eye-rolling, calling him lazy and whatnot. I guarantee the people posting stuff like that aren't doing anything near as creative or productive with their time. As I said, it was disappointing to get a clip show (and if you've seen his past Christmas specials, you can certainly skip it) but flat out bashing just isn't cool. I guess it reminds me too much of the people who complain when the new rosters are delayed or when Player X doesn't have an overall rating they think is right. ;)

Watched this week's Nostalgia Critic too, Little Monsters; another one I'd never seen or heard of but I enjoyed the review immensely nevertheless. Looks like Daniel Stern really phoned it in on that one, admittedly the review's only giving us clips but it certainly looked like he was just reading his lines in every scene. Loved the montage riff and callback to "FOOD", too.

AVGN was really disappointing.....the past Christmas specials (as shown in the clip show) were epic. I wish he could throw some more ads on the videos through GT or somewhere to make some money off the videos so he can prioritize them to do more.

Apparently he's got a lot of freelance work going at the moment which limits his time for AVGN. However, it seems as though there is a Christmas special this year; it's posted on his YouTube account but not GameTrailers as yet.

Not my favourite ep but a pretty good parody all the same and better than a clip show.

Strange it's not up on GT, they usually get the episodes before they go up on James' YouTube account.

The last two Nostalgia Critics have been good as usual. Rover Dangerfield is another one I've never seen, though as usual that didn't stop me from enjoying the review. The Christmas episode was really good, I enjoyed all the cameos and the inversion of the standard "It's a Wonderful Life" homage.

There's a new Nostalgia Chick up as well, a video essay/editorial on Dreamworks vs Disney. I like that she mixes it up with those videos in addition to the standard reviews, she tends to do a good job with them.

Nostalgia Chick has concluded her Dreamworks vs Disney editorial. Her point about affectionate parodies vs parodies based on dislike or bitterness, echoing Mel Brooks' thoughts on the matter, certainly resonated with me. It's one of the reasons I gripe about potshots in comedy shows these days; a parody based on dislike can work if it's clever, funny and actually has a point, but so often they're pretty much rants against stuff the writers don't like, shots at former employers or people they have bad blood with and worst of all, they're usually no deeper than "this sucks" (a point on which the audience might or might not agree).

This week's Nostalgia Critic introduces what appears to be a new concept that he'll pull out from time to time (like Old vs New and the Top 11s), Raiders of the Lost Story Arc where he looks back at early episodes of TV shows to see how they hold up. Fittingly enough, he's started with the 1987 series of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As much as TMNT is a treasured childhood memory, I'd have to agree wholeheartedly with the review. Looking back on those early episodes as an adult, you're so much more aware of some of the cheesiness, the plot holes and the like, but it doesn't completely destroy your fond memories of them either. There are quite a few full eps on YouTube, if you were a fan as a kid in the 80s/early 90s it's worth looking them up when you've got nothing better to do, either before or after you watch the NC review. I'd suggest your experience will be similar.

Zero Punctuation was a clip show this week but the Achievement Hunter guys started a new series called Achievement HORSE which is fun to watch. Me and a few buddies are working on some HORSE maps for our own competition.

Wasnt a fan (usually arent) of ZP's clipshow. I liked the bit at the beginning better than the clips.

Oddly enough ive watched his reviews for batman and ass creed II (my xmas acquisitions ive played) and it seems he's pretty spot on even if i dont think something is as gamebreaking as he does.

Achievement Horse may be the best idea i've seen in awhile

Awesome, I'll check that out at some point today.

The Critic has begun sequel month with The Neverending Story 3. I remember seeing the original as a kid but I can't recall seeing the sequels; as always with the stuff he reviews that I haven't seen, that's probably for the best. His out of character Best and Worst Movies of 2010 is worth watching too. LordKat's latest Until We Win is another impressive effort.

I just watched all the "Immersion" episodes on Red v Blue, pretty good series. They "test" how realistic video game stuff is. Like online trash talk messing with your shooting, 3rd person view driving, 3rd person view sidescrolling, food heals you, how mobile are you when carrying all the weapons from Doom, and Zombie Headshots (below).

It is pretty funny seeing the faces behind RvB too.

Watched the latest Nostalgia Critic today. The Secret of NIMH 2 sure seemed to miss the point/tone of the first movie; I'm not one to hate sequels purely because they're sequels but all the movies he's done for Sequel Month have been textbook examples of why they're not always such a good idea.

been watching a show called extra credits on the escapist lately. Its kinda an academic look at the elements of video games and what makes them work/not work. It gets a little preachy but i'm glad someone is trying to approach a web show about gaming from more than a ranting perspective.

well to follow that, Zero Punctuation did Minecraft today. Normal funny stuff and made some good points about why the game is so successful.

Sounds interesting, I'll have to check that out.

New Nostalgia Critic & Chick out at the moment, reviewing the Care Bears Movie 2 and The Fifth Element respectively.

Good episode, his freakout at the end was pretty funny. It's great to have the longer reviews now that he's scaled back to one a month.

Doug's latest Nostalgia Critic nominated the Top 11 Dumbest Moments from the Spiderman films. I thought they were well-chosen, I wouldn't disagree with any of them.

Just watched it, enjoyed it of course but i'd slightly disagree with Doug. yes the first 2 had silly/shitty moments: but they at least stayed true to the spidey we know and love. And they were better movies for it. 3 was hated and reviled because it turned peter not into just an angsty guy getting revenge, but a complete utter prick.

As much as we may not like to admit it, most people can understand the sentiment and relate to "vengaence" even if it is an attempt to kill the "guilty" party. But you add comic emoness and domestic abuse to it and you stop relating and start going "what the fuck does this have to do with anything?" it takes you out of the story, removes your emotional investment, and makes you start counting down the ticks till the movies over.

I'd agree with that, the first two were superior and the entries from the third were definitely things that I didn't care for, but the things he picked out from the first two movies were pretty fair.

Doug also posted a lengthy video on the top 10 movies most people seem to like but he hates/doesn't much care for. The only one I can really disagree with on that one is American Pie, a few folks in the comments were calling it overrated but I feel the original trilogy is a little underrated. It has its problems and he made some spot on criticisms of it, it's not a style of movie that has a whole lot of artistic merit and it's not for everyone, but it's got quite a lot of heart for a movie of its genre and I still find them entertaining (I haven't bothered with the ones that don't star Jason Biggs et al). I see where he and other people that don't like it are coming from but hey, I still enjoy it.

Next week he's doing the opposite, the top 10 movies he loves that most people seem to hate or not think much of, I'm definitely interested to see his picks for that.

watched that 42 minute special...not bad and even though i havent seen a couple of the movies i'm with him on the ones i have. Contemplating writing a blog of my own version and next week's flip of course.

Right now i'm thinking Crash, Brokeback Mountain, Sin City, Fight Club, Citizen Kane, and Evil Dead (original). Gonna have to contemplate a bit longer on the rest of my list and the "ones i love everyone else hates"

I'd be interesting seeing that. I'm not sure what my entire top ten would be in either case but I think my number one movie that I dislike that everyone seems to love would be Borat. Admittedly I haven't actually watched the whole thing but with the bits I've seen and knowing the concept of the movie, I'm always annoyed that it's praised as comic genius. I respect the success and if people like it then like Doug says then that's cool, but it just doesn't appeal to me.

Doug's top 10 movies that he likes but most people seem to hate is now up. The only one on the list that I've seen is Spiderman 3 (though I am aware of most of them) but his reasons for liking them made me think that perhaps at least a couple of them are worth checking out. I also liked his closing remarks reiterating the purpose of the two videos and that liking or disliking a movie does not make you stupid or a bad person or anything else. As entertaining as Doug is as the Nostalgia Critic and his other characters, it's always nice to see him post a review or a countdown as himself, so I really enjoyed those two videos.

Just watched it and the only one ive seen i'd completely disagree is spidey 3. But as he said alot of the reasons he liked x3, are why i hate it. I grew up on the comics and the black suit/venom were the epic we'd all been waiting before. And of course it failed.

But I did agree with him on the ones ive seen outside of that. I loved x3, matrix wasnt truly bad till the third, etc.

Latest Critic takes a look back at The Lost World. Great points about the preachy, PETA-ness of the heroes and their general ingratitude, hypocrisy, stupidity and mean spirited decision to leave the people that saved them without bullets to defend themselves. Rob's Jeff Goldblum impression was great.

Awesome 100th episode, if ever there was an episode to make more of an "event" with extracurricular stuff, that was it. He spent a fair amount of time on R.O.B. and the games too and at the end of the day, that's what drives the series and should be the focus of the episodes.

I also got up to speed on the latest Nostalgia Critic/Nostalgia Chick episodes, as well as the latest Ask That Guy on TGWTG. Good to see another commercials episode of Critic and the review of Inspector Gadget was pretty funny too; Matthew Broderick has sure been in some flops, Ferris Bueller's Day Off that was not. Lindsay is getting pretty creative with this Dark Nella saga, while continuing the reviews. Her latest special, a short film she made for a high school project years ago, is pretty funny too. It reminds me of similar projects when I was in high school, which were just as terrible (and hilarious because of it).

Latest Nostalgia Critic is another New vs Old, this time featuring The Karate Kid.

Interesting that he picked the new movie as the winner, though his analysis did outweigh any nostalgic enjoyment for the original which I guess is the whole point of the character and series. Still, given some of his criticisms of the new movie I thought he'd end up picking the original so I was surprised.

Latest NC took a look at "The Langoliers" and as usual, made it a whole lot more entertaining than I'm sure it would've been to watch. Loved the "Perfect Strangers" references and jokes.

With my connection being dodgy the last couple of weeks, I've fallen behind on my online series as it's just been too painful trying to load long videos. I did manage to catch the new AVGN where he took a look at games based on Spielberg movies. Fine ep, though it looks like everyone that's been waiting for him to review E.T. will have to wait until the AVGN movie. Hopefully my connection woes will be resolved tomorrow, so I'll be able to catch up on the latest stuff over on TGWTG.

AVGN is a great series and does not fail to entertain, but I prefer the other videos he posts on his website, http://www.cinemassacre.com. he posts links to his movie reviews, has videos of him reviewing board games AVGN style (Board James), and is now starting "Turtle Tuesdays", a weekly look at the TMNT cartoon and other related media. Check it out.

HappyConsoleGamer channel on youtube is also one of my favorites. (http://www.youtube.com/happyconsolegamer) the name sounds like a blatant attempt to capitalize on the success of the nerd's popularity, and it well may be, but the videos he posts always makes me feel nostalgic about video games again. definitely for the hardcore retro gamer.

occasionally i go on kotaku, but the new layout for all the gawker sites is pretty off-putting. i never miss a gametrailers retrospective, which are always high quality and informative.

I haven't checked out too many of James' other videos but I've enjoyed the ones I have. I'll have to give Turtle Tuesdays a look.

My connection's been fixed, so I'll be checking out the last few Nostalgia Critics and other recent stuff on TGWTG.

I'm finally up to date with the Nostalgia Critic eps, his latest episode (Once Upon a Forest) is one of his funniest in a while in my opinion. Seems there was a bit of a cultural misunderstanding though when it comes to the word "ramble"; while his critique of that scene was still funny, he clearly misunderstood the meaning of the word in the context it was used (I'm guessing it's not as well known to Americans as it is Brits and Aussies). I still have yet to catch up with all the latest Nostalgia Chick eps though.

There should be some third anniversary content up soon, apparently Doug's putting a lot of time and energy into editing this year's project. It might be difficult to top Kickassia but apparently they've gone in a different direction this year and I'm sure whatever they've done will be entertaining, it's always fun to see all the contributors together in one big crossover along with their individual crossovers.

No new AVGN in May.
