Holy shit, sometimes I miss my classic video games! Back in the 1980’s playing the classic Nintendo 64 with rad games like Super Mario Brothers, Rygar, Mega Man and Castlevania (just to name a few)! Well it seems that The Angry Video Game Nerd misses that shit as much as I do as his classic game Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures is released for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS today!
If you haven’t check this one out check out the trailer it’s a helluva good time. if you’re missing the 80’s as much as I do then go challenge yourself with this one. Sometimes with video games you gotta keep things simple, the video games of the 80’s were a damn good time. I hope to see even more interest in the genre! Nice work Angry Video Game Nerd!!
So it looks like someone decided that it’d be cool to recreate some of the classic Nintendo games with punk icons in the roles of your favorite video game characters. I guess this is kinda neat, a bit random & pointless maybe but still an interesting twist. You can play these games for free on Punktendo.com.
You can play as Milo of The Descendents in “Milo-fu”, you can play as the fan punching Fat Mike in a game of Golf, You can be Danzig in Mega Man or you can be Mikey Erg (not quite a punk icon, but maybe the creator’s friend?) in Super Mario Bros. as well as a few other non punk games like “Gay Popeye” etc.
I’d have been a bit more pumped if these games had more original concepts behind them, like a nerd revenge game with “Milo in Milo in College” taking on jock bullies would be a fun one. If anything though these are worth a play or two just for kicks- check it out! Oh yeah and this happened a day or so ago, Fat Mike kicked the shit out of one of his fans at a NOFX show who jumped on stage to sing along to one of his fave tunes! now this could be a great video game concept- Fat Mike’s ‘Fan Attack’! In the video game happy NOFX fans could storm the stage in joy and you could control Fat Mike as he beats their asses to a pulp!! I’m thinking kinda like Robotron: 2084 maybe? Damn I should be making these games-they’d be a helluva lot more interesting!!
