MINUS. FIVE. STARS.
Great as usual spoony!
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
That´s EXACTLY what I hoped to get from this review! I don´t care about the game, that´s not why I voted for it. I just wanna see Spoony dress up as a bunch of Wresters and yell at the camera! Great Macho Man rendition, by the way, I hope we see more of him in the future.
Is it me or did no one else notice the “YES!” shirt he was wearing?
It could be that he was being ironic.
And it could also be that he was using the following reference:
It’s a Bryan Daniels shirt; his catchphrase is “YES! YES! YES!”
(For awhile, it was “NO! NO! NO!” I think Spoony may be a fan.)
I just discovered Mr. Daniels, god I love that guy.
And I’m surprised you expected anything else to win that vote.
Hahahaha! I think we broke the Spoony One! :p
Given the choice between Wrestle Wrestle and Counter Monkey…I’m happy with what we have =)
Am the only one who wants to see all the Spoony wrestlers do a review together?
Spoony you have the touch, the jokes and… The Power (Hair Metal scream)
…i think i missed that from older videos, just Spoony fucking around with toys, like the giant jazzman Galespy
“I’m Jesus, lol?” is one of my favorite Spoony quotes of all time.
This was every bit as horrible and pathetic as I was hoping it would be.
This was absolutely glorious. I certainly expected the game to be… interesting… to say the least, I just didn’t expect it to be so BAD; yet it resulted in a review that was nothing less than top form, something that can be… and will be… enjoyed for years to come.
Damn it, Ultimate Warrior… the sheer force of your destrucity has infected my post with ellipses!
The title card seems like it has Spoony going: “How fucking DARE you vote for this game for me to review, you bunch of ASSHOLES!” LOL
I like to think that the behind-the-scenes thing with the bathtub had Spoony’s girlfriend or brother accidentally walk in and casually go: “…You need any help?” And then, Spoony just went “No, but thanks for the offer.” After that, he or she just walked away, as if nothing happened.
I’m curious about something though. When Spoony played the character that seemed to imitate Spoony fans, was he symbolically “telling the fans” to “never change”?
Eh. I think its a little column A and a little from B.
That’s a good catch!
You know (if you’re right), I think spoony did a better thing with presenting Iron Shiek as such compared to the way NC personifies his fanbase without respect.
Don’t blame me, Spoonyboy. I voted for the Myth fantasy game.
I voted for Clue, don’t look at me Spoony. I don’t think I ever laughed so hard in my life just in the opening alone. :)
Fairly glorious video, though.
That Iron Sheik.
What Spoony needs to find is known as the ‘Action Max’ light gun VCR game… and yes, it actually worked. I’ve only ever seen like 2 units, and I’m personally currently looking for one to do a video on myself.
Yeah, I was hoping for some Gate-Keeper kind of stuff in the game video itself, but you know what? The impressions of Hoak Hogan, Iron Sheik, Macho Man, and Ultimate Warrior in a bathtub? THAT is why we voted for this Botch-Fest of a game! And it was damn entertaining!
Just the *chance* of seeing the return of the Spoony-Sheik was enough to get me to vote for this one, but you went all-out with four great performances, not to mention one Hell of a wonderful shot with the Vince Russo joke (I am such a dork just for getting it). This was an exceptional performance with a lot more effort put into it than they used for the game, or indeed even with the actual events in the last number of years. Seriously, the Caveman Captain America theory for Jim Duggan was a lot better than “The Zombie”. I think Jim Cornette said it best: “Fuck This Company”.
Speaking of which, I would not only like to see this game done “competently”, but I would love it if it were a “Botchamania” edition. Just imagine the possibilities with the Promo Blooper cards alone! “Hoak Hogan, we comin’ for YOU, ni-….” (MINUS FIVE STARS!)
Oh my god. The Iron Sheik impression.
I will take that to the grave. Classic.
“Wrestling? I like wrestling! But I don’t like fighting. But I like to wrestle! But I don’t like fighting. But I like to wrestle! I like wrestling.”
Tell me just one thing. Am I the only one that went to find VCR Golf online almost as soon as he threatened to kill us?
No I did not buy it, but I found it on e-bay as part of a two game bundle for $20.
You’re not. Multiple people have mentioned doing that on YouTube… and someone probably found the same ebay bundle as you did: with the Basketball VCR game (which works exactly the same, I assume).
Words cannot express how hard it its to fight the impulse to send Spoony VCR Golf.
The shirt…the NO…the Ending…
YES YES YES YES YES YES
Gee, Spoony, sorry I helped inflict that on you, but boy, was it worth it!
My apologies, Spoony. Thank you for making the best of it.
If it makes you feel any better, Spoony, I voted for Star Trek.
THE REST OF YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!
I voted for Clue 2 just because I had that one as a kid. That is pure cheese all around.
I voted for star trek too. I thought very hard about the wrestling game… but I went with star trek if only because I wanted to know if Linkara could be asked to cameo. Heck we can wait for it at the con they can play the game of it together.
Have you see the Macho Man mod for Skyrim? YEEEEAH!
The one set to Disco Inferno? I adore that video.
Heck, I didn’t vote for it. I thought it’d be boring! But then, I’ve never been a fan of pro wrestling much.
Great review, but it doesn’t bring me any closer to knowing what the hell a ‘Jabroni’ is.
Loved it. hoped for ultimate warrior skit and got what i desired :)
Oh man that was perfect.
Arizona State… that explains a lot…..
Holy shit… Spoony’s Macho Man is AMAZING!
I’m laughing HARD at Spoony’s videos again. Ah… so nice…
Also, I’m sorry, man… I didn’t see the Acclaim logo! I’m so, so sorry!
Well, looks like we’re getting a counter monkey with wrestling rpg.
Ultimate Warrior playing with the squirt head toy in bathtub. You can’t top that. LOL
And that’s why I voted for “Atmosfear: The Harbingers”. Two reasons, actually.
1. It was the only game on the list I’ve actually played.
2. I remember wrestlecrap.com’s review of the WrestleMania game and how abysmally boring it was.
Still, great review Spoony. You did well considering the shit you had to work with. Now review The Harbingers! ;)
OMG a WWF Roleplaying Game using a D20 system. I cannot wait to see this! Still waiting on XXXIII-2 though, these video games reviews are glorious.
It is… better than you would expect. The “classes” are like D20 Modern’s- each is based off an attribute- and they’re not terribly limiting, and combat is based on each participant declaring a maneuver and having an opposed check, and the winner not only does damage but narrates how the sequence went. It does have some of the d20 system’s limitations (including a skill system where some skills are just way more important than others), but the designers later went on to make a non-licensed, non-d20 version called Wild World Wrestling which is much more flexible.
I voted for candyland, because I thought that would be comedic gold. But the shit quality of the video, while I know made Spoony go “WTF? How am I supposed to make this funny?”, which gave us something like his other reviews, but entirely original at the same time.
Spoony, I gotta letchu know, that watching this video was the greatest feeling Ive had all time, all my life!
I voted for this one just because I wanted to know how in the holy fuck a WWF board game would even work. If you told me it was a two-hour video tape of wrestling clips spliced with giving players points at random intervals I would’ve voted for sumthin’ else.
Ah well, gave you a good excuse to rant about Hacksaw.
That was hilarious!!! One of the best videos!!!
found the PGA VCR game on Ebay for $30 bucks…. if only I had the spare cash….
I was expecting something like the Nightmare game… But with Vince or Gorilla Monsoon interrupting instead of the gatekeeper.
Dude, this video was AWESOME! Can’t wait for more!
those squirt toys make me think of wrestlers spitting on your bathing children
DO NOT DISS THE ECW ZOMBIE
Or what? Robocop gonna come and kick my butt?
Hey, dude can bend steel bars. I wouldn’t take him lightly.
Good , he can help me get the warrior out of my walls. ;p
only Randy Savage can come back to life as a white lantern only to try and plug a horrible d20 wrestling game
Spoony, you know your fans are trolls. One of us is going to send you that golf game. Shit, I’m still looking for a good enough jester costume to send you for a chuckles replacement
The wrestling fan in me loved every second of this video. I have tears my friend, tears. Great job man, had a blast watching this one. Can’t wait for the next vid.
Macho Madness will never die. OH YEAH!
Voted for this figuring it would be fun to hear you talk about it. Turns out I was right. Thanks for the video Spoony.
Cruiser Weights can cruiser wait.
Best video of 2013 so far. That was awesome.
Hey uh.. .Just fyi?
19.99 on ebay. Right now.
I sort of want to buy it and send it to him. It would be totally worth it even if I get stabbed.
Don’t provoke him; when Spoony says “Don’t you dare send this to me”, he isn’t using reverse psychiatry where he actually does want it and just pretends that he doesn’t…he literally means “don’t you dare send this to me!”
The deed is done.
Let the waiting game begin.
I was beat too the punch…I failed you all. I was ready too get it and send it too his PO box too.
This is what sets you apart from other reviewers. What you’re reviewing has NOTHING to it at all, yet you still manage to make a fun review out of it.
Wait, was he describing the game at the end or the Batman announcement?
Although you do realize the Iranian government is going to totally try and snatch you now, right, Spoony?
Oh fuck. They got him.
The big reason I avoided voting for this one is because I kinda figured it would be some kind of lame highlight clips video. Still, you managed to make it funny. I still can’t believe that they managed to market spitting heads of Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan as bath toys. You do realize that you have to show us how the hell you make a wrestling RPG using a d20 system right?
Don’t blame me I voted for Candy Land
Funniest review yet. I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time.
this was good stuff. i owe you an apology, i voted for this one. the montage of you as the calvalcade of rambling wrestlers was priceless. that was some of the best nonsense i’ve heard in a long time. i don’t think people stop and appreciate how dead on your impressions are. while voices may not be quite right, the mannerisms are eerily perfect. also you’re ultimate warrior costume is improving. good to see you working at full steam again.
At the end there I was seriously expecting him to pull out a Final Fantasy game but then Spoony threw a curveball at us. Awesome stuff, man. Where the hell do you find these games?
That was great.
One of your funniest reviews.
This might be even better than Minority Report. God damn my sides hurt.
VCR GOLF OH SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
Awesome review, anything related to wrestling is always entertaining Spoony….
Ahhh shit… they score on the Rangers. GET IT TOGETHER RICTHER!!!
I will die never seeing them win a cup. They won in my life time, but I was like 5 at the time.
That an the zombie made me bust out laughing.
Ah yes, the return of the Ultimate Spoony and Hoak Spogan.
And those bath toys really exist. What the fuck.
The fans made a great choice…
In the end, it didn’t matter that the VCR tape gave Spoony next to nothing to work with…
His character acting and a couple of wrestling related tangents more than made up for it…
Spoony and 80s Wrestling is a winning combination…
Spoony appears to have forgotten his fans like to watch him suffer.
Keep up the great work spoony. I’ll be honest, I’m actually commenting to say I’m glad that your brother is ok, heard about the incident, thats some scary shit, hope everything works out.
Something happened to Miles? :(
As you probably know Miles is a deputy police officer. He had to shoot a man who was sitting in a van with a pistol and fully loaded assault rifle after it was reported shots were fired at the man’s home, the man didn’t leave the vehicle when Miles warned him, and raised the barrel of the assault rifle.
If you are sure about this you shouldn’t tell these things in here.
You’re probably right.
Just remove it and it’s all good.
I tried… The comment is still showing as guest…
maybe flagging will help
Just did that.
Actually that happened two years ago.
Ah, I didn’t know that.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Know Your Rules D20! Yes! Do that!
And also I’m with the Iron Sheik – Wrestle Wrestle was awesome :)
I take no blame for this. I voted either Nightmare or an Atmosfear.
Don’t diss the WWF ice cream bars Spoony they are awesome!
The Iron Sheik has a twitter account. It basically consists of him looking at what’s trending and telling it to fuck off, as well as occasionally throwing shots at Hulk Hogan…it’s pretty much the greatest thing ever.
I can no wait for his tweet about Syria.
Congrats rubes, could have had an awesome Atmosfear video. But nooooo, you picked WWF that was made around the time where WWF was licensing EVERYTHING.
That zombie guy had a pretty weak death growl going. Started out promising but then things really went downhill.
May we still have a candy-land review? It just sounds tooth-rottingly sweet.
WWE Ice Cream Bars? I’m sure those would sell like crazy…. except for the Cena branded ones. Those never sell.
DAMN this game looks boring. I’m not even into wrestling, but if you’d actually make a better version of this then I’d buy it
Thank god I didn’t vote for this slop. XD
The reason it says “Break!” is not to allow you to do anything, rather, it is put inside so that you can process the footage you just saw and have your soul be broken.
Actually it’s so you can stop the tape until the next VCR space/card.
Awww, poor Virgil… Seeing those older wrestlers at conventions is like watching a bunch of pound puppies.
Yeah, I saw him at the San Diego Comic Convention a long while back. I’ve actually seen a number of wrestlers there, including my favorite, Mick Foley, but unlike most of them, Virgil was…kind of depressing. Like an attraction barker at a carnival of desperation.
“Step right up, see the amazing man who can’t realize his career is long gone, PLEASE don’t forget about me, I see you older folk, YOU know who I am, right?”
That’s how it is with a lot of wrestlers. Very heartbreaking, and one of the big nails that “The Wrestler” movie hit really well. It’s a love ya n’ leave ya business.
Wrestling just isn’t nearly as appealing to me as it once was from the early 90s to 2000s. Apart from seeing your favorite wrestlers die prematurely, the inter-web has profoundly exposed the backstage politics, planned scripts, sordid affairs, and overall seedy underbelly to the “sport”. I understand that this is presently the “PG era” but the larger-than-life figures since the 80s have long since been brought down to earth for those of us more seasoned viewers.
But perhaps it wouldn’t be so difficult to watch were it not for the numerous sad turnouts of the wrestlers themselves and anticipating those fates in the newcomers. My mind automatically goes to Scott “Razor Ramon” Hall.
Yeah, it’s always been a nasty business. As if the frequent deaths (often due to heart failure, often due to drugs, often due to the *horrendous* travel & booking schedules that practically encourage enough uppers and downers to make Hunter Thompson wonder what the Hell’s going on) weren’t bad enough, the backstage politics are just vicious. Debra “put those away so Jerry Lawler can shut up” Marshall getting a gag order to protect Steve Austin’s image (and more importantly the money he churns up for the company)…after beating her was just horrid.
Yeah, Stone Cold BEATS his wife, and *he’s* the one the company protects. Every now and then you’ll get a happier story, like Dustin “Goldust” Runnels turning his life around…but usually you’ll get someone found dead in a hotel room from heart failure, or in Hall’s case, a drug-wrecked existence…or in Crash Holly’s case, a bit of both.
A lot of times the Industry will look after its people, that is unless they cross that line where the company just doesn’t want to be associated with them in order to protect their image. “IGNORE The Benoit Behind the Curtain, look at Cena, kiddies! Look at the dancing monkey! ONLY look at him, look at nothing else, just watch the dancing monkey in his goofy T-Shirt, yes, eat it all up, you fickle bastards!”
And that’s another problem in itself. The fans *are* fickle. The campy 80s personas had some longevity working for them because they were so memorable and they hold a fond nostalgia, but these post-attitude era guys with not only generic images, but piss-poor scripts and booking to work with that isn’t even their fault, that spotlight is going to fade FAST and then the depression kicks in when your career is buried under the new flavor of the month. It really is a vicious cycle.
I think a lot of people wanted to see an unofficial episode of WRESTLE! WRESTLE!
Whats wrong with a wrestling game based on a D20 system?
I’ve actually heard “Know your Role” is a surprisingly decent RPG system, and pretty good at reenacting wrestling shenanigans.
I’d love for Spoony to make a video comment to some classic wrestling matches. Who’s with me?
Your fans are my favourite fans, Spoony. Granted not all of them would have had this knowledge, but I know quite a lot of them knew what you were getting you into and just like me, they wanted to watch you SUFFER. That’s why we’re all here, isn’t it?
Well done on turning a very boring looking game into a fun video.
I don’t leave comments that often, I usually don’t feel the need to because I figure at some point, someone will voice my own opinion in my stead. However…. THIS WAS AWESOME!!! And I’m not saying it because it’s about wrestling, to be honest I don’t care that it’s about wrestling simply because I’m not what you’d call a wrestling fan (I voted for the Star Trek Next Gen VCR game myself). But this is the funniest video I’ve seen from Spoony in quite a while. Playing different characters, having fun with the editing, the comedy, the info-tainment, it was all there! That video reminded me of Spoony’s reviews of old. (And yes, I DO realize that the Iron Sheik character was making fun of those people who complain about Spoony’s videos of late… I don’t care because I never was one of them, I very much enjoy almost anything Spoony takes the time to put out there, Counter Monkey, Movie reviews, Riffs, whatever the case may be…). That being said, THIS one was just awesome, for all the reasons I’ve mentioned earlier. More, please!
I was going to post pretty much what you just said. Spoony seemed to have so much fun doing this review (somehow, though I’m not sure how given the source material). I’ve never been one of the “Spoony used to be funny” people, but there’s no denying that there is a difference in at least tone of his older videos and his newer ones. I think that’s largely because of Final Fantasy and the reviews tend to become weighty and drawn out and it surely gets tiresome for Spoony. I’ve always found him funny, so I can’t really say I prefer one of his “styles” over the other, but this is a very refreshing and welcome change of pace. This may be one of my favorite videos he’s ever done, and I don’t even like wrestling!
While I don’t mind Spoony ranting from time to time (by which I mean, suffering and blaming “us, assholes” for it). THIS here was just plain fun. Clearly fun for him, and subsequently, fun for us. Like you said, a welcome change of pace. As for “how” he could have so much fun given the material… weeeell… he’s passionate about it, and when you’re passionate about something, pointing out stupidity you witness in it; it can be fun! Because you’re basically going “I’m so much smarter about this stuff than any of you assholes in charge of it!”. That’s a nice feeling sometimes! Fun, I tell you! ;-)
Now that’s a treat. Good job :D !
Sadly, I’ve heard this Wrestling d20 is actually not that bad. If you really want to tear apart a d20 adaption, try the non-Saga Star Wars version XD
If the Ultimate Warrior would’ve sticked to his character, he could run for governor with some AWESOME speeches XD
Yeahhh, I didn’t think this would be -great-, but I didn’t think it would be anywhere near this shameless and lazy a cash-grab. I voted for Candyland!
I remember playing candyland as a kid; I wonder what he has to say about it.
The Iron Sheik segments is the funniest thing you’ve ever made. Please bring him back again sometime!
I USED TO RESPECT YOU, SPOONYONE
I was indeed one of the people that voted for the WWF game lol. Last time you make a poll ever lol.
You turned a game as stupid and tedious as that into comedy gold. You, sir, are some kind of alchemist.
I sort of voted for this, too, but the scripts on the page messed with me so I just commented, really…
Yeah… I can’t say I was expecting this, but I was expecting better from this. So, anyone get a reason as to why the Dark Tower wasn’t part of the Blagghoh series?
Because it was a counter monkey.
Counter Monkey is about reliving the past.
The Blag ho’ is about reviewing nerdy board games.
So he could do another episode involving the Dark tower if he was going to review it.
I call bullshit on the winning by count out thing… Everyone knows you can’t win the title on a count out!
Unless it’s TNA, of course.
Even TNA doesn’t do that anymore.
You can only win the title in this game by getting to the end of the path and having a star card. You can win the match, however, in other ways. Just as in a normal Wrestlemania main event. They aren’t always title matches.
I love Iron Sheik’s visits on Opie and Anthony.. I will fuck your ass and make you hhuumbele
This video, is awesome. Well done!
Until Ultimate Spoony mentioned it, I didn’t know that there was a Highlander remake coming in 2014.
Isn’t that movie still in development hell?
Yes it is. Again. And Reynolds is out.
On both accounts, thank FUCK.
Hey, it can’t do worse to the franchise than Highlander: The Source did. Knock on wood.
I think it can – if only because the whole franchise has drifted off into such obscurity after the first sequel that mainstream audiences have probably never heard of The Source XD
Awesome stuff. I voted for Star Wars, myself, but when I saw the lopsided poll, I knew instantly why people were watching And wow, I was NOT expecting it to be that shitty. I made better game content back when I was 15!
If he’s going to start really reviewing crappy game systems, I dare him to try and review the ultimate horror: F.A.T.A.L., considered (with VERY good reason) to be the absolute worst RPG ever to be printed and sold. Though to be honest, if he were to do it, I’d almost recommend he try to go find someone to crossover with, if only to share the pain…
I second that suggestion.
Judging by most of the clips I’d say the game was released in late ’88 or early ’89. Watch a Jim Duggan match from around then, the guy was over HUGE. The matches sucked ass, but he was damn popular.
one of the funniest spoony’s this year! i have been wondering how a wreslting rpg would work. i guess i get to find out! oh, and the call of cthulhu was an AWESOME movie!
It’s D&D, but you fight John Cena and the Undertaker instead of dragons and Demons.
What’s happened to you reviewing films and video games??? Goddammit!
As many downvotes you’ve gotten for some reason, I kinda want to echo your question.
The game reviews were what drew me in, and I still go back to the Ripper and Phantasmagoria playthroughs. Heck, even the SWAT videos get a rewatch every so often.
Would definitely like to se a return to that in some fashion. Doesn’t have to replace the current stuff. Just add it in to spice things up.
Edit: Realized after posting that the downvotes were probably because of the tone, not the question itself. I’m too sleepy to cognize context it seems.
The movie reviews are still happening, though in the form of vlogs with his brother for newer movies rather than the classic style with the clips and the joking.
Game reviews, not sure. Last one of those he did that I saw was the redo for Minority Report.
And yes, the downvotes were for the tone… Or at least mine was.
Well, afaik he’s always done movie reviews two ways. The vlog reviews of current movies in theater, and the Spoony Experiment reviews with skits and jokes.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure the down-votes are because of the tone I used.
But I didn’t use that tone because I’m angry or want to insult someone.
I used it because I’m frustrated!
Like a lot of Spoony’s older fans, I “discovered” him back in 2008, thanks to his wonderful Final Fantasy VIII review.
And from then on, up until sometime last year, he continued to make reviews about things that I like to see, however erratically.
But much as I enjoy the Counter Monkeys and the various convention clips, they are not as interesting as his real reviews.
They are basically just quickly shot videos of him talking. And if there’s one thing Spoony’s good at, it’s talking!
In my opinion, the best stuff he does, is when he actually puts some effort in by sitting down and writing a script or what have you.
He’s always entertaining, but the difference between an ad-libbing Spoony and a prepared one, is the same as the difference between a piece of coal and a razor-sharp diamond!
Also, wrestling is not exactly popular around where I live…
Judging by your name I’d guess a fellow swede. So, same boat here. Didn’t grow up with wrestling, nor have any real interest in it. Spoony ranting about it was/is funny, but I have no deeper interest in it than that.
Jodå, nog är man Svensk alltid!
Och som Svenskar så är vi ganska medvetna om att wrestling inte riktigt har hakat på i Sverige. Jag vet inte, det är lite för Amerikanskt tror jag.
Skulle Spoony däremot tala om ishockey så skulle det vara en helt annan sak!
Hmm…om vi ska fortsätta den här diskussionen så kanske det är bäst att skriva på Engelska? Jag menar, det är lite ohövligt att prata på främmande språk så att de andra läsarna inte vet om de ska rösta upp eller ned…
You say “no”, oh Spoony One? Well I think I speak for many of us when I say:
XBOX ONE – RED
PS4 – BLUE
*XBOX ONE uses political damage control to save itself from DRM claims.
BLUE – 15 points
You should next re-review Uncommon Valor. Critical Marine has just disappeared completely. Don’t even try to work around the collab, just start from scratch.
thats not the Zombie thats Carles Puyol the central defender and captain Barcelona FC
Don’t blame me, I voted republ-err, atmosfear!
Funny how he pokes fun at those who do complain about all he does is counter monkey, anyhow funny video.
Things I took away from this.
-Hey, the non-VCR boardgame wasn’t all that bad after all looking at this.
-And this is why I get a big laugh when I call the two wiggers in our gaming group “Butch Reed” and “Koko B Ware”.
-And you thought Duggan was only shit in WcW.
-I was right, Greg Valentine was always shit.
-All those awesome Shieky-baby impressions, but you didn’t address the gigantic boner he had when he camel clutched Hogan?
-Oh you think that was ALL they put the big silver WWF on?
-Is now the best time to mention that there was another WWF RPG that came out in the 90′s, complete with a 25mm Undertaker figurine? And that it was a rules heavy piece of crap?
-A massive salute to Botchamania there at the end, but I thought Spooney and Maffew were on really bad terms right now?
Hulk Hogan won’t say anything for 50 bucks.. he’d fucking do anything for 50 bucks! Like Arm-Wrestling AND LOSING to Mayor of Toronto Drunk-Ass Crack Cocained Rob Motherfucking Ford…
I think he threw that one because Rob does a good enough job of making himself look like a tool already.
Wait… Hogan actually jobbed to somebody? Wow.
In truth, we just wanted to hear you talk about wrestling for 30 minutes :D …even though I voted for something else. But at least it showed you how many people watch your show and care enough to vote :D
Well, I get why people wanted to vote for this one. They wanted to see the costumes, the screaming, what the heck it was and just the look of agony on spoony’s face, reviewing something painful. I understand that people like that and based on the vote, I’m obviously a minority. Although I too enjoy a well placed dose of “what the heck” rage, I have enjoyed the calmer spoony too. Good job overall lately, and with making an entertaining video out of practically nothing
I think most of the votes were “They made a wrestlemania VCR game? Dafuq?”
I voted for Star Trek, because that’s the one I’ve actually played.
Fantastic impersonations! I would so want to hear your take on the Rock. :)
Damn that board game really sucks ass. This review really bored me mostly because of the fact that the game its self is boring.
A part of me likes to believe that Spoony just has an absolute BLAST doing at least the Ultimate Warrior impersonation.
Somebody get a copy of VCR Golf and send to Spoony!
Allow me to put on my spoony wig for a moment…
No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No!
Who needs a wig? I have his hair style before he got it cut last time. OH YEAH!
My hair is too long and curly, so I need a wig to pretend to be Spoony.
Mine’s the right length, but that annoying type of curly were it won’t stay back if you brush it back. It will slowly crawl back up over your face and make you blind. That’s why I have a pony tale! ^ ^
And now… We wait.
DC. Hulk Hogan Green Lantern. Now. Thank you.
You know if he asks for a poll again, even if he doesn’t have it, people will unanimously vote for VCR Golf just to troll him. By the way, I bought a copy of VCR Golf from eBay. Just hope it’s real or working when it arrives. Now to find his mailing address…..
Glad the wrestling vid won because I miss the Wrestle Wrestle! vids of old (which are annoying to find). Ever since I started to watch TNA (I lost a bet) I was hoping that Spoony would bring back Wrestle Wrestle! since they keep making references to stuff from decades ago (what the poop is the Main Event Mafia).
And we got basically every impression except for Tax who incidentally one of the best impressions.
Anyone else want Macho Man start with the Cream rises to the Top promo he did?
Just think it was a missed opportunity
spoony you get automatic win for the Danielson tee shirt.
I’m torn. On one hand, it would be good if he did so he could give a balanced review. On the other, I would be sad to know there are people who would willingly play FATAL for any reason, and I don’t see how it’s possible not to be scarred for life from the experience…
Hang out on 4chan for a bit, you’ll be made immune to further scarring. And sorry to let you know – when I once mentioned FATAL to one of my groups in jest, they seemed down with the idea of running a one-off for research purposes >_<
Heh, I have. But I’m not talking about people who might play it once out of morbid curiosity or to review/document it. I mean, look at us: aren’t we demanding the same of Noah and whoever he ropes into this?
I’m talking about the poor sick bastards who play it and think it’s a good game. I’m talking about people who’ve gone their whole lives as normal until they find…THIS. And oh my what a horror that would be.
Only one left. Buy it and ship it directly to Spoony
Spoony gets bonus points for drinking a bottle of Woodchuck summer cider.
Spoony knows his reversed psychology. Can’t wait for the episode.
Fuck. I actually had one of those squirt heads.
Review the Milton Bradley Disney VCR Game Next
That was great spoony! Your Randy Savage and Iron Sheikh were hilarious.
Hah. I can’t help but chuckle to myself watching this. I didn’t vote for that. I voted for Commercial Crazies (I think it was).
But really, Spoony. You didn’t see that one coming? Being pretty much -the- wrestling guy while with Channel Awesome etc. You probably did. In any case, funny vid.
I think most of us voted for it because we really miss you wrestling videos.
Top form, amigo! You are truly one of the last great reviewers of the old guard, keep it up!
I used to play with my Jake the Snake in the shower, mostly as a teenager! Great video, Spoony! Keep up the good work, or the Iron Shiek will come for you!
Iron Shiek: “Fuck, you, eh Spoony One. I fuck you in de asshole!”
Spoony: “NO! NO! NO!”
OMG, this was fucking awesome! This is one of the best reviews you have done period! And I have seen them all. Being a wrestling fan since 1990 myself, I laughed my ass off!
Ok, so this review was utterly fantastic! And I’m ashamed that I can’t really say much beyond that… other than that seeing every one of your wrestling parodies in one video was hilarious!
…and I spy a Honeymooners game back there! I vote that one next! :D
One of the best reviews out there Spoony, Bravo, I was one of the many who voted for the WWF VCR game just to see what the fuck was all about, and you didn’t disappoint.
Dr. Insanolove, or: How Spoony learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Strawman
Lovely Iron Sheik promo, entire review had me laughing. You know you belong in wrestling reviews, it produces gold every time.
spoony doesn’t talk about how you play the game…
…… You didn’t watch for very long, did you?
Yeah he had the attention span of a knat. If he had waited for like 5 minutes he would have found out how to play. This guy wanted to bitch about something.
Holy shit that was funny! =))
“If you can read it then you are too smart for the game” has to be my favorite quote here.
My favorite is the entire Ultimate warrior “WWF Squirt head” commercial. So much laughing….
You should have chosen the slim jims…
LMFAO, guess which company made those fucking abominations that are squirt-heads? L. J. N: THE RAINBOW OF DEATH.
Somebody seriously needs to email AVGN about these…
Glorious video, Noah. I liked Hacksaw Duggan, but I admit that it was likely because I was young and stupid and just liked his goofy personality. He was like a human Rottweiler, friendly, loyal, and none too bright. Mind you, I first saw him when he was with Mid-South Wrestling and Butch Reed still went by Hacksaw as well.
I can honestly say that I wasn’t among those who voted for this. I didn’t really have an opinion on which game to review, so I didn’t vote at all. As others have said, this is one of your best in years. I’ve already watched it four or five times since it was posted. Keep up the great work, man!
I have watched this so many times now. This is so funny, Spoony. That Iron Sheik had me in stitches (the fact that hes giving complaints that people complain about your videos is fucking amazing haha so good)
I just had to comment again to say this episode is so so good haha
And I’m not even a wrestling fan although I was probably around the time this game came out.
So.. apparently Randy Savage died a couple of years ago… awkward.
Cool video though.
This video is amazing.
SOMEONE likes Botchamania.
I think it’s amazing how often I watch this.. and it still gets me to laugh each time.
Sheik is hilarious with the complaints he tosses out from the fanbase.. but then it’s also a bit interesting you tell him to never change. :)
Warrior was also nice with his ‘commercial’ for the Squirthead. I like to think of it as a callback to his own Slim Jim advertisement days ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNEd4KH_A4s ), but I doubt it. :D
Well Done! You have finally learned the true value of public opinions! it has been a long and painful road, but you have learned a precious lesson some people never even come close to realizing.
I’d salute you, but that would undermine the message. A fine video. And a fine day to shake one’s fist at Acclaim, even if the company is in hell.
ah ha! Disqus stopped fighting with me. This review was so damn funny. I do love listening to you talk about wrestling, and your Iron Sheik spots are always awesome. I did not vote for this, I voted for the ST:TNG game mostly because I have it (and used to play) and wondered if you’d be in the force field as much as I always was.
Your pro wrestler impressions never cease to amaze me, Noah, especially your Iron Sheik. That was dead fucking on! This is one of your best videos yet.
So is there actually a Kickstarter to make a real Wrestlemania game? I would totally back it!
To all who voted for this game instead of Atmosfear: I HATE YOU ALL.
Hang on, they actually got the macho man to do a commercial, but they couldnt get ANYONE to actually be in the game? What the fuck?
This was awesome. Spoony’s wrestler impersonations are one of the few things in life that actually make me laugh out loud.
I was one of those who voted for this game. The reason I did so was because I like wrestling and I know you, Spoony, like wrestling and until I watched this review, I thought all VCR board games were like the Gargoyles game.
I’m sorry to have made you suffer, but I think it was worth it. XD
Did you know that KYR got remade recently into Wild World Wrestling, and how many times did you have to do those impressions without corpsing?
This is great entertainment. Satire, whit, spoof and innovation. Spoony is great at what he does and this vid fails to disappoint. Bravo!
‘Don’t send me VCR Golf, I will fucking stab you.’
Did the man misspeak? Don’t listen to your fans Spoons. They’re dicks and love to see you in pain because their lives have no meaning.
