The Nostalgia Critic and Team ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com head into their biggest adventure yet!
oh PLEASE tell me, Spoony, that you bust out the “Flame of Arnor” from the ultima 1 review
Or the Fleshlight from the Ultima 7 Part 2 review…
The sounds is all over the place. I hope it is better for the final. Although, it looks good. Just me and my OCD. Nice work on the trailer to all involved.
Wow I’m early.
Wait, is Spoony in charge of making the trailers, or is he just posting it? Maybe TGWTG finished most of the movie, and are just using the good parts for the trailer. That’s how it’s usually done.
I think Spoony is spreading out his posts, keeping us just barley satisfied until he can finish the LONG AWAITED REVIEW OF FFX-II.
I remember Spoony saying that the review would be coming out ‘soon’. When did he announce the review? How long has it been since he announced it? He could have just announced the future release of the review at a later, point maybe after PAX, and he shouldn’t have fans breathing down his neck.
We might have even got a definite release date out of this. I mean, without a release date, I’ll have to keep checking back on the site… increasing the views that Spoony gets and increasing advertising revenue.
Does Noah have some kind of monetary incentive to announce reviews with indefinite release dates in order to make fans obsessively visit his website in the hope that the review will finality arrive? I just want a definite release date so I don’t have to check three times a day.
I really hope he isn’t milking us. Then again, Noah tends to get hungry three times a day.
That’s quite an ignorant and hateful post. First off, Doug edits and posts the trailers. Thus, when you watch this video with the ads, Doug is getting the revenue. Spoony is merely showing us upcoming content that he is in so that we can watch and enjoy.
Second, I will never get the hate Kickassia got. It was a great comedy adventure that was an amazing way to celebrate the second year anniversary. Not only do THEY get to have fun, but WE get to enjoy content. It’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned. Kickassia was a solid and hilarious movie that I would have paid to see.
People harp too much on his word like it’s a gospel. He’s provided a lot of content over the past three weeks or so. Fine, if you didn’t care about E3, you’re free not to watch that stuff but it was still content regardless. He described in those videos too that he was having some problems and also said in a recent justintv chat that he was working on X-2 as we speak. Might be helpful, if you’re so impatient, to actually check these things.
And what, exactly, does he gain from not being able to stick to his schedule? People will lose interest, and might even not watch the review out of spite. I swear, some of these fans are the worst. They obsess over one thing said and refuse to believe that it can be revoked, just as it has happened with X-2 due to certain circumstances. He still provides frequent enough content, extremely quality content, and the trademark energy that has made him so popular. He has definite dues on reviews, but he simply doesn’t share them.

Oh, Sweet Lord, THIS.
I don’t understand why people are being so negative against TGWTG. What do you want them to do? Hire an million-dollar Oscar-worthy film crew, writer, and director for their stuff in order for people to be satisfied?
No, they just want it to be good. It’s not, so they don’t like it. Quite simple, I think.
Well “good” depends on who the person is.
Not necessarily. People can enjoy something that’s bad though, like I enjoy Nekromantik 2, for example. I like the movie, but I still think Buttgereit is a shitty director.
See, about that…I haven’t watched the majority of reviews on Kick@$$ia on Youtube, because I can only guess that they’re only going to be “negative, negative, negative, bashing, bashing, bashing” with no positives in sight.
I apologize for my irrational post. I should be more flexible than that. I changed my original post with an edit, so you may want to read that if so inclined. That said, I have a few questions about your reply.
Why mention Kickassia? I never brought it up, and despite not liking Kickassia’s meandering plot, I am actually looking forward to Suburban Knights.
I do like The Spoony Experiment, I just want Noah to keep us informed. If he has a definite release date, I would like to informed about it. If the date is still indefinite, I don’t want to know about it unless the release is only a few months away. I guess that speaks to my own impatience, but I would like to be met half way here.
And Spoony can revoke his words. It’s called an update. To be fair, he did update us on justintv, but I wouldn’t have known that chat had existed unless you told me.
All of that said, you are otherwise in the right here, I did step out of line. I like your post so much , I’ll ‘like’ it. No hard feelings.
That’s funny, swear I made same green ball effect with After Effects just weeks ago. Andrew Kramer ftw!
Is it me or some of the audio is a bit off, just saying.
“RUN LIKE CHILDREN!” That had me cracking up.
Nothing says epic more then cramming 20+ people into a bland hotel room…again. I wish they’d stop doing this as in my opinion it detracts from the movie.
I’m being pessimistic but at least the scenery looks nicer then a desert. Looking forward to it though :)
That effect with the guy exploding the car looked freaking real!!
OMG, Doug even has little pointy ears.
So sick, I gotta watch it :)
This looks terrible. I can’t wait for a riff track on this.
I heard that, Curtis!
…He’s right there with us. XD
Yeah, but he doesn’t have a single line in the trailer and probably around two in the full deal. I’m with Phelous on this one: “This is gonna suck!”.
So you look at a 3 minute long trailer, note that Benzai does not have a line, and then deduce that in the entire 7-part series he will have only a few lines, and that consequently the end result will be awful?
Truly you have a dizzying intellect.
Medice, cura te ipsum: you make a statement about my intellect based only on two sentences I wrote about a 3 minute long funny movie. So, yeah, your mom’s stupid! Also, you’re wrong.
I first assume Benzaie won’t have that many lines, because
A)he didn’t have any here… well, actually he did have one, but let’s just say it wasn’t comedic gold
B)he didn’t have much screen time in the past two anniversary productions.
Nowhere do I state, that this is the ultimate truth, I even add the word “probably” to express that while I believe that’s how it’s gonna be, I don’t know it for sure. Then I make a general statement about the whole movie, which is in no way meant to stem from the first sentence. I didn’t say “Not enough Benzaie, therefore shitty movie”, just “probably not a lot of Benzaie; I guess the movie will suck”. If you read it differently, you must have taken the wrong impression. Guess your powers of interpretation score about the same as my intellect, eh?
And by the way, even if in the trailer it would turn out, that Benzaie is the main protagonist, I’d still assume that it’ll suck. Why? Because the last one did, and from the trailer it looks like this one will be just more of the same. I hope this weren’t supposed to be the money shots, because I’ve seen literally just one gag that made me chuckle. And even that was rather weak, because I only remember chuckling, not the joke itself. Instead of funny, there was a lot of bad production value (the shots in the woods look just ugly).
Anyhow, by putting that line by Phelous in the trailer, they were just asking for someone to use it. I seized the opportunity.
I’m like the first one to talk right after Doug and I think my voice is heard real quick as Voice over at some point… I have my fair share of lines in the whole thing, I think more than Kickassia… What’s for sure is that I’m on screen a good deal of the time reacting to shit… I’m flattered you guys are worried about my part in all this, but they’re not flying a dude from Europe to sit there and drink Mtn Dew while the Camera points at something else !
Relax & Enjoy… I believe sincerely that people will like this more than Kickassia
What I’d LOVE to see is just you, Spoony and Cinema Snob doing something together, whether its in this movie or in a review. I’m picturing something very hilariously dirty. LOL
34 seconds in.
Kickassia was such a great success, I can’t even imagine how are you going to top it, seems impossible.
Still, can’t wait till it comes out.
Why weren’t you Paul Atreides instead? D: Would’ve been so on the mark for you.
Looks dreadful – do you guys have to celebrate every anniversary this way?
How would you prefer they do it, do an Inside the Actors Studio and discuss the depths of their characters?
Just have a party…
I prefere this.
Yes, because you could certainly enjoy a party that you’re not at and we would probably not really tape and even if we did, probably would be all of five minutes of just people loitering around drinking and having conversations about random stuff.
Instead, we try to provide some additional entertainment beyond just what is regularly released and let the fans get in on the fun, as well, since of course it is because of the fans that we are all here.
Actually, yes, I would kinda be interested in that.
next year is going to be a porn
Starring Spoony, Benzaie and Cinema Snob. ;-)
Dignity died shortly thereafter.
I really do get sick of these off-track weird story lines and movies they do like kickassisa or the black lantern stuff, or that claw-robot guy on atop the forth wall, i wish they’d just stick to the reviews more, as that’s where the real quality lies. I end up just wanting to skip past the plot stuff and just watch the review.
That’s fine, since there’s still a review in every standard episode of my show or Spoony’s show.
Stuff like Kickassia is meant to be just a special little celebration that we’ve been around for a while. It’s meant to be fun.
Oh your here Linkara.. err.. I so totally did not mean what I said about the costume stealing and quickening line. I love the Power Ranger review stuff, btw they have up to the season of 2010 on netflix now.. so no more searching for episodes… *flees*
you realize that this isn’t going to be a review but more like a mini-story on it’s own?
Then don’t watch it jerk. This is meant for fun. and it’s only a week long so it’s not going to get in the way of your precious reviews. These guys obviously work hard on these anniversary specials but if you’re going to be whining about just don’t go to this site June 27 to July 3rd. Simple.
7 Parts?! SEVEN PARTS?!!!
It’s not going to be seven weeks long if that’s what you’re worried about. It’s going to run for 7 days. So you get a whole week of entertainment.
Seeing NC in that costume will forever be burned into my brain..
Not sure if that’s a good thing yet or not.
Screw you guys! THIS LOOKS AWESOME! Obviously it’s not some top notch quality movie, and it’s silly for a reason. I just love seeing all my favorite reviewers in one place, interacting with each other and having a good time. It makes me happy and entertains me just fine! I wish I could be there with them! HUUUZAH!!!
Spoony looks drugged in this trailer. Indeed, a sober man would not participate in this.
Gandalf did love the halfling’s weed.
They called it Halfling’s Leaf… *shifty eyes* I got a bag if ya want some Spoondalf
Oh Frell, I just totally blew my nerd cred didn’t I? ;)
that is “Hobbit” weed, Vanlan. i do not believe that Halflings Exist in tolkeinverse.
Did any of you spot the Gate Cleaner in the trailer?
It’s… So… Nerdy… It’s Beautiful.
Joe: My name is Inogo Montoya motherfucker!
I was eating Oreos and I’m pretty sure chunks flew out of my nose upon hearing him say that.
cannot wait for this! it looks so geeky and awesome
The editing for this trailer is really good. I’m looking forward to seeing this and I’m also looking forward to any commentaries the various reviewers add about it. I imagine it was like the last Anniversary Video where the whole thing was shot on a very short time frame. The results are very impressive.
Hey, Linkara stole your avatar costume
I was about to say the same thing.. Keel him! Take his Quickening and then you can take his show!
Linkara could be the person who got Spoony the Avatar costume. Spoony did mention that Link has access to a much better variety of costumes that are better quality than anything Spoony’s got.
Actually, to be fair, the avatar costume Spoony uses is a higher-end costume we both got from the same source. XD I just modified mine so it would have the AT4W logo on it.
All we need now is a guest appearance by Trogdor and tah intarwebs will asplode.
awesome the gate cleaner is in this hope its real
Seems like this will be the best one yet, here is hoping for more Angry Joe and Spoony screentime and WAY less tgwtg screentime.
sound quality is awful. hopefully just the trailer, but I seriously doubt that.
All I got from this trailer is “Spoony as fucking Gandalf: Staring Spoony”.
But really, looks amazing.
This premise might be to thin to sustain a seven-part event. Introducing a magical gauntlet into the Channel Awesome universe will probably create to much plot-baggage. So the ending is almost guaranteed to be either “the power of the gauntlet was never meant for mortals, so it must leave this universe and/or be destroyed.” or “The gauntlet never had any power, the power was in all of you the entire time.”
This looks pretty interesting.
But will it be able to top Bimbos BC ?
I mean that movie was great! It was full of intense drama, explosive action scenes, and waaaayyy coool super special effects.
Seriously when I saw this film and saw them enter the city I was like:
OMG! I’m so excited!
Hopefully this won’t be as bad as “Kickassia”, though I can’t really imagine anything worse.
Kickassia was quite bad. But hey, it’s a movie by amateurs who happen to be our favourite internet-celeb-nerds. So i guess it has some appeal on a certain level
I honestly don’t understand why people bitch about these Kispecials. I think they’re a great break from the usual reviews we get THE REST OF THE YEAR (seriously, this stuff just last one week…ONE WEEK) TGWTG Brawl and Kickassia were…well kick ass! I’m look forward to this quest of epic nerdiness. As for the whole “Oh the quality looks bad, oh it looks cheesey etc.” …This is FREE entertainment. They’re creating this for you to get a good laugh at. Pull the damn stick out of your ass and enjoy what they bring to you!
I think it’s ironically the Brawl and Kickassia specials that spawned a huge burst of popularity of a lot of these reviewers. This is actually the kind of material that gets watched and passed around a lot across the internet (especially YouTube).
I can hardly wait for this… and omg, 1 part per day? I CAN’T WAIT THAT LONG!
… Why did people think Kickassia was bad? I actually really enjoyed it. ._.
This one looks great, guys. Super excited!
NOSTALGIA CHICK’S CLEAVAGE AT 0:48
I must be more of a pervert than Spoony because I just had to see this after you mentioned it. LOL
Angry Joe as Inigo Montoya is so perfect.
Now prepare to die!
I love the costumes, guys! Showed this to the wife and we’ve sorted out most of the likenesses (i.e. Jewario as the goblin king, Marzgurl as princess Mononoke, Cinema Snob as Indiana Jones, etc. No clue what the hell Phelous is supposed to be though, although maybe that’s the joke? Anywho, it’s good to see you guys getting together once again. I for one appreciate the time and effort that went into this undertaking. Looking forward to it!
ooh! ooh! ooh! Just had a brainwave! The Rockbiter????
Yep, he’s the Rock Biter. XD
This video has me so pumped for this! I think I’m going to thoroughly enjoy watching this when it comes out!! :)
Wait…were those the Shadowlords from Ultima V? AND the Gatekeeper/cleaner?!?! *Faints from sheer amount of awesome*
Too bad PAW didn’t dress up as King Swa–err Graham. Oh well.. :)
This looks like it’ll be an awesome ride – just like previous TGWTG specials. Great times will be had.
Mildly more impressed/interested than I was with the previous trailer—but be warned, your self-awareness will not avail you. It will be judged on how entertaining or lame it is like anything else.
The Cheerios “That’s For Baaaabieees” commercial spawned to immediately follow this trailer, though—and that is NOT a good omen.
> Site full of reviewers who criticize bad media of all sorts using sarcasm, swearing and snark
> Fans attempt to criticize Kickassia and Suburban Knights
> “You’re not allowed to criticize this! It’s just for fun! It’s a treat for the fans! If you don’t like it, don’t watch it!”
> Hypocrisy detected!
If something sucks, it sucks… regardless of how much “fun” the creators had while making it. Criticism should be an opportunity for self-examination and growth, not reactionary bitching.
Those reviewers wait for the product to come out first, though, rather than writing it off from a preview.
Well yeah, how much material can you get out of a preview?
Well yes, there’s also that.
I am sure that the guys will have lots of fun making this.
I am just as sure that I will not have any fun watching it. ><
What is it about reviewing stuff that makes the job so hard to continue? Is it really so stressful that reviewers need to play at being actors in some low-budget epic of epic epicness every few months?
How is it that everybody spelled the name wrong…? it’s Íñigo Montoya. By the way, this looks outstanding! Kudos to all people involved.
CRAP! I’m going to be away from the internet for most of this!
Spoony the Grey
Zoro In the Shadows
JarethWario The Goblin King
Benzai the Barbarian
Not sure about the others
Or is Tod supposed to be the Dread Pirate Roberts?
BTW, is it telling that, in Videogame Confessions, Link is gay?
OMFG! I’m so stoked :)
While you guys are breaking the fourth wall, will Linkara be on top of it with you in his way?
can i preorder the dvd now?
In phelous’s word this is gonna suck, but I cant wait for it to come out. Its been over a month since it was announced and Im sure it will be great fun, though cheesy to watch….
The Guy wearing the Sunglasses,his costume looks like its based on Harry Dresden.
is the distressed watcher in it?
oh so super hyped for this XD!
Watch the Gauntlet just be a Power Glove XD
Mmmm…Nostalga chick boobies. <3
Oh wow, this might be interesting. X3
You can’t be serious.
“Kickassia” was the pinnacle of vapid self-indulgence. I’ve lost a unit of respect for everyone involved in this.
If I wanted non-acting, bad camera-work in anonymous forests, and sub-mediocre CGI, I’d watch the SyFy channel’s movie saturday.
If you are bored of reviewing, just take a break. It’s okay. We’ll understand. You don’t need to his to degrade yourself like to make us like you. :(
“Epic” and meta are simply not enough to create a good story. I know you’re probably already committed, but please, man, for your own sake, promise not to do this kind of thing again. Trust me when I say that you wouldn’t consider doing this unless you’d been tripping on the fumes of internet celebrity.
“Suburban Knights” was the pinnacle of vapid self-indulgence.
Well done! It’s nice to see somebody isn’t taking things too seriously. You guys rock.
