The geek world becomes unraveled as nerds choose sides! The two angriest reviewers in internet history have... aw, fuck it. This promotional crap is harder to do than I thought.

Anyway, The Nostalgia Critic (aka ThatGuyWithTheGlasses aka Douglas) made a video a few months back declaring the nerd should reign in his fans that were leaving comments on his YouTube channels about how he war ripping off the Angry Video Game Nerd (aka The Angry Nintendo Nerd aka James). He warned that if the Nerd made any kind of comment, there would be repercussions.

That opening salvo was met with a response... in written form. James posted a comment on his forums that was complimentary. Or was it?

Tensions were building. Fans were commenting. A storm was building. And then came The Wizard (aka Super Mario Brothers 3 trailer with a full-length feature film around it aka that movie with the kid from The Wonder Years) incident.

Still this conflict remained one-sided. The Nerd refused to respond, citing he was, "way too busy".

Until now.

The Nerd has responded. The war is on. The first casualty was the Nostalgia Critic's website, which was forced to move servers much sooner than expected. WHICH SIDE WILL YOU CHOOSE?

P.S.: If anyone has enough free time and interest to make Civil War parody banners, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I was angrily and sarcastically reviewing movies and video games centuries before these two guys ever existed. </Alexander Anderson> :ph34r:

That Guy. AVGN is funny for a few minutes, but he quickly degenerates into a torrent of profanity without a whole lot of thought behind it. That Guy actually puts some thought into his reviews other than "This shit is shittier than the shit that gets shat by shit-eating shit."

Although he's not unknown to use shit in his reviews...... :whistle:

But yeah, That Guy all the way.

It's too bad that the AVGN had to beat us over the head with the "THIS IS SARCASM" line in his response to "Nostalgia Critic", because it really broke up the video's momentum and made it much less funny than it would have been otherwise. Offer a single disclaimer at the beginning, and be done with it.

Unfortunately, some people are too dense to get even obvious sarcasm, so you have to beat them over the head with it.

AVGN for me. He does rely on profanity, but the humor that comes from how bad the games are is genuine, and his rants do often complement what happens in the games nicely. He really hasn't used that much profanity lately and does a great job at making fun of what goes on onscreen in a snide mean-spirited way. Also, I love the theme music and how fast-paced his videos are. That Guy is interesting to watch, but he's not as funny.

Not too sure about the ending. What I'm thinking is that there is two different endings: One for the AVGN's site, and one for thatguywiththeglasses.com. Have to wait until it goes up on the NC's site, but as is...it's weak sauce.

That was awesome! The lightsabers...the Street Fighter moves...the call backs to the AVGN Wizard of Oz, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Batman episodes...and of course Super Mecha Death Christ 3000 4.0 Beta. Great video.
