Video Game Magazines - Angry Plumbers Don't Wear Ties 1 day ago   14:59

The AVGN pulls out and reviews as many video game magazines as he can find, except for Nintendo Power.

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: Thanks for watching.

I've watched so many of your vids, I love them, obviously it's all supposed to be funny but the history of gaming really is my favorite part. I really would like hear your opinion on the Gamecube game "Chibi Robo" it'd be dope to see a AVGN episode on it.🙏

You can't talk about mullets without mentioning the ol' 29er Phil Borque!
It’s all about “Tips & Tricks” magazine!

Great content! I remember in 1993-1994 buying a GamePro on vacation & my Grandpa opened it to see what it was all about when we were riding in the back of the family car. I asked him what he thought. I will never forget his words: “You are gonna be okay, but your generation is screwed.” 😎😂🤣💚☘️🍀

HAHA THat line at the end slays me "Look at that joe cool some bitch! Thats a guy who knows all the tips & tricks"

You know what's funny is that the beginning part of the song sounds like Smells Like Teen Spirit

Plumbers Don't Wear Ties Video Game Magazines - Angry 1 day ago   20:39

Angry Video Game Nerd (Episode 74)
Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

One of the most bizarre and poorly-reviewed titles in video game history, "Plumbers Don't Wear Ties" was a reviled and unsuccessful game for the (similarly unsuccessful) 3DO console.
Throughout the game, the player assumes the role of various characters in an adult romantic comedy storyline, deciding what plot development will happen next. However, instead of the forking, "Choose Your Own Adventure" storyline implied by such a game mechanic, players are kept on a linear story track, with their "wrong" decisions scolded before returning them to the decision screen.
The "Full motion video" promised by the game's packaging is similarly misleading, with only the game's (less than three-minute) introduction featuring FMV, and the entirety of the game proper consisting of still images. Non sequitur humor, illogical sequences of events, and bad post-production contributed to the unpleasant experience of playing the game.
Released in 1994 by Kirin entertainment, "Plumbers" immediately received terrible reviews and today appears on many lists of the worst video games of all time.
