If you are frequent purveyor of our blog, you may know that we're HUGE fans of Cinemassacre - home of the brilliant web series, The Angry Video Game Nerd. Soon, Rolfe released a review of The Karate Kid game which was the first episode where Rolfe's character is introduced as The Angry Nintendo Nerd.” Naming these videos The Angry Nintendo Nerd Trilogy”, Rolfe posted them on Cinemassacre. Rolfe's review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game was reported in an MTV segment called "Viral Videos Infect the Mainstream".
In Jan 2012, Mike Matei released a video showing off Minecraft : Pocket Edition This is another one of those videos that is being monitored by Mike. This is the first review of 32X games, and the last as of now. Except, when we do it for AVGN, we sit there with a notepad and write down time codes for specific parts of the game where something funny stands out,” says Matei in regards to the James & Mike Mondays.
Rolfe's character, "The Nerd", is a short-tempered and foul-mouthed video game fanatic who is sometimes besieged by guest characters from video games and popular culture. I help James come up with ideas and record gameplay footage for The Angry Video Game Nerd web series.
The feud culminated when the Nerd and the Nostalgia Critic crossed paths in person in a video game store in Clifton, New Jersey called Digital Press. The show would later encompass reviews of gaming consoles, peripherals, and short lectures about video game history and culture.
Mike: I'd like to see a Universal Monsters video game that's actually licensed by Universal. Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures begins in the most predictable way possible as the nerd gets sucked into a bad video game where he must fight his way to the end. Even the later Megaman games were quite fun little treasures to play, each unique to when they were published.
Other contributions over the years have included drawing each episode's title cards, helping James pick out and study the game before writing the script for a Nerd episode, and portraying the cheating bastard” Motherfucker Mike in the Board James series.

It seems like gamers don't know much about Mike, aside from your videos, though, so tell us a little bit about yourself. I played A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS and beat it. It's one of the best games Nintendo has made in the last decade and one of the best Zelda games ever made.
The UI of megaman games is very simplistic mainly because of the hardware limitations (The hardware can only display 8 sprites per scanline for the people who doesn't know!) so i think changing costume is a clever move. In September 24, 2008, Rolfe collaborated with another famous internet reviewer Doug Walker, to create a fictional feud between the two's most famous characters; the Angry Video Game Nerd and the Nostalgia Critic.
For Cinemassacre, I edit Monster Madness , which is 31 reviews in the month of October. Although Zelda was the overall theme of the interview, I could tell that Mike genuinely loves gaming in general. The AVGN reviews Tiger Electronics LCD games, Tiger Electronics wrist games, , and R-Zone.
