The Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures
Has anyone else played this yet? It was released on Steam the other day. I'm a huge fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd so I have been following this for some time now.
So far so good. It feels like a mix between Mega Man, Contra, and Super Mario 2. It seems to have 8 bit style graphics but with a much greater color pallet that the NES. The game is insanely hard, but feels fair in that it doesn't blindside you. Everything that kills you is something that can be avoided. Its not cheap like "I Wanna be the Guy", but really feels balanced. Also each level seems to be based off of popular NES/SNES/2600 games. I even think one of the levels is based off of that Atari 2600 Custer's Revenge porno game.
So far the only other characters I unlocked is the Guitar Guy, the guy who sings the AVGN theme song and another guy who has a lightsaber. I wonder if there are other characters. I know one of the achievments mentions Stuttering Craig from Screwattack. I think I saw Jim Sterling as an NPC as well as Mr. Destructoid. Cool stuff. I wonder if Jonathan Holmes and Conrad are somewhere in this too? Anyone know?
One of the coolest things is the death quotes, I've died like 100 times so far and haven't gotten the same one twice. The Nerd always says some crazy thing. It's also cool how he kind of gives a commentary on different parts of the levels, it feels so much like one of his videos.
So have you played this? I really like it.
Just a warning, be sure to use a gamepad because it is almost impossible with a keyboard. I know it works with the 360 gamepad but I am not sure if other PC gamepads work. When you use the 360 controller it specifically mentions that the 360 gamepad is connected so I suspect that other ones may not work, at least without some kind of workaround.
If you have played it, what is your favorite level? Mine is the Candy one since it is so much more vibrant than the others.
Edit: Here is Jim and Mr. Destructoid.

Oh god, I love these videos. Especially the Ikari Warriors videos. They're also awesome after a long day of dealing with crap at work!!
