Street Fighter 2010 Jan 6, 2010 What better way to kick off the year 2010 than by playing Street Fighter 2010? The Nerd strives to beat this ridiculously hard game that has nothing to do with the Street Fighter series, and as a bonus, he plays not only the Sega Saturn adaptation of the Street Fighter movie, but he actually manages to find and play the original Street Fighter game! And as you might expect, they all suck.

Hydlide Jan 20, 2010 Within the NES collection of the Nerd lies a game called Hydlide, the pronunciation of the name is debate-able. The Nerd points out that while the game looks like a rip off of Legend of Zelda, its actually older than Zelda. It was originally released as a computer game but got re-released for the NES at the wake of the first Zelda game. Excluding the similarities to Zelda, the game is nothing special. The Nerd's main complaint is the confusing selection of options on the menu screen and the use of long passwords in order to beat the game. When a save feature would of...

Swordquest Feb 17, 2010 The Nerd does a history lecture on the Swordquest games which were not just your average Atari action genre games but were actually games used for a promotional contest where gamers have a chance to win actual treasures made of gold and other minerals.

However due to the 1983 video game crash, Atari pulled the plug on the production of the fourth and final game and the two remaining contests never happened.

Pong Consoles Mar 6, 2010 The Nerd does a lecture on the game Pong a very simple concept for a game that ended up spawning to many spin-offs and remakes. In this case he reviews every single Pong console he can obtain. Most of these console don't have insert slots for games because the games are already programmed into the consoles themselves. Most of the consoles would either not work properly or have unusual features during the game play. The most obscure consoles are the ones that don't have an AC adapter outlet which makes hooking the consoles up a big chore. The Nerd expressed how times...

Action 52 Apr 30, 2010 After getting so many request to review Action 52, the Nerd has no choice but to give what his fans want. The game is an unlicensed NES game compiled with 52 games.

So he does a marathon run on the first 51 games and every single one either has characters dying in mid-air, characters too small to identify, too many space shooter genre games, games that make no sense, enemies that don't die, games that keep crashing, & whole bunch of other disastrous elements. After being tortured by only 51...

Cheetahmen May 9, 2010 The Nerd reviews the 52nd game on Action 52 titled the Cheetah Men, which came with it's own single volume comic and a preview to a line of action figures that never got made.

It suffers from unusual glitches and the attack moves are worthless to certain enemies. After finishing all 52 games, the Nerd decided to play the unreleased Cheetah Men 2 game.

The Nerd knows that the game isn't going to be fun just by seeing the main title screen and the intro. What perplexes the Nerd is that Lester is a wimpy guy who can't attack with anything but a puny kick, unable to with stand jumping from a high place, and is afraid of almost everything he encounters. To make matters worse, the levels of the game look like they're design for a more playable plat-former game with a character that isn't as weak as Lester. In the end the...
