S01 E05Jun 21, 2006
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Jun 21, 2006 The Nerd grabs a beer and decides to review the first Ninja Turtles game for the NES. For a game that's based off of a kids show, it's not kid friendly when the platforms in the levels make it tricky for you to jump on and the rapid re-spawning of the enemies. The Nerd's main complaint is the electrifying seaweed which makes swimming under water more difficult than it seems. Not to mention that at some points in the game you're unable to get any of the turtles out of the water upon the land levels despite how they're able to swim in the underwater levels.
S01 E06Jul 21, 2006
Back to the Future Jul 21, 2006 The Nerd reviews both the original Back to the Future NES game as well as the Back to the Future Parts 2 & 3 NES game. For the first game the Nerd's main complaint about it is the clock collecting mini games and the odd choice of enemies that consist of bees and hula hoop girls. For the other game the Nerd finds the layout of the alternate 1985 level to resemble nothing from what is depicted in the second movie itself.

S01 E08Sep 1, 2006
Wally Bear and the No! Gang Sep 1, 2006 The Nerd observes the cartridge to the game Wally Bear, and is confused by the label that says "Press Here" which is literally part of the actual label of the game. The game itself isn't too exciting for a game that is trying to teach kids the dangers of drugs. The most ironic thing about the game is it has a hot-line that contains a recording of what is suppose to be Wally Bear telling kids about the dangers of drugs. The hot-line is still active to this day despite that the game was released 14 years ago. The Nerd suspects that the recording lays dormant in some guy's dusty basement. The fact alone that an old recording still being active in an abandon area is very haunting.
S01 E09Sep 8, 2006
Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu Sep 8, 2006 The Nerd invites a guest to play the two player mode on Master Chu. One of the hand full of NES games that come in a baby blue color cartridge. There isn't anything great about the game other than the main character being drunk hence the word drunkard in the title. The Nerd's main complaint is the music repeating itself with the same stereotypical Chinese music, along with boss fights that have no challenge to them.
S01 E10Sep 15, 2006
Top Gun Sep 15, 2006 The Nerd reviews a flight simulating NES game which is based off of the movie Top Gun. For an older flight simulating video game there isn't much to offer since it's made for the NES, but the confusing controls and lack of music makes the Nerd irritated. His main complaint goes to the landing the plane sequence which always results in the plane crashing into the ocean despite that the Nerd did his best to steer the plane in the correct coordinates. For the finale the Nerd reviews the sequel Top Gun: Second Mission. Which he likes how it's game play is a lot more fast pace, but complains that the missile kill you at a far range giving you less time to avoid them.

A Nightmare on Elm Street Oct 31, 2006 After getting rid of Jason, the Nerd appeared to be free from his torture. Only to discover that he's being visited by Freddy in his dreams. In the dream world Freddy forces the Nerd to play the Nightmare on Elm Street game for the NES. With the generic Halloween monsters and the campy music, it was far from being as great as it's movie counterpart. The Nerd's main complaint is that the main character in the game has no weapons except for the dream sequences. The Nerd will have to think of something fast if he wants to get rid of Freddy and get out of his own ...

Chronologically Confused About Bad Movie and Video Game Sequel Titles Nov 28, 2006 The Nerd takes a break from reviewing games to do this special episode in which he gives out his analysis on game and movie franchises with confusing titles and chronological orders. In the first part he complains about the bundle of remakes to Street Fighter 2, the spin-offs to Mega Man, and the unreleased titles to Final Fantasy. The second part of the review is where he mentions certain movie titles with confusing sequel titles or spin-offs. Particulary the Zombie movie franchise being a sequel franchise to Dawn of the Dead without George Ramero's involvement.
S01 E16Dec 14, 2006
Rocky Dec 14, 2006 The Nerd is having a Rocky marathon at his apartment as a tribute to Rocky 6 coming to theaters. While five of the movies are being played on various media players in his apartment, the Nerd reviews the Rocky game for the Sega Master System. while the look of the game looks good, the game in general is too hard for a boxing genre game. No matter how many times the Nerd goes through the second match of the game, he's unable to proceed to the final match. In conclusion, the game doesn't hold up as well as Super Punch Out does.
S01 E17Dec 20, 2006
Bible Games Dec 20, 2006 For his first Christmas review, the Nerd decides to review a few unlicensed Bible games for the NES and Super Nintendo. The most obscured game of the bunch would have to be Super Noah's Ark 3D. Only cause it's the only first person shooter where you get to play as Noah. The game is basically a clone of Wolfenstein 3D which is a better first person shooter to play. The Nerd is confused as to why there are so many goats inside the ark and the reason for Noah to be attacked by goats is a mystery.
