When Linkara learns that Spoony is going to review a comic book, he decides he has to create his very own COMPLETELY ORIGINAL video game show!
NOTE: Special thanks to Pike for the logo!
no one can dance to Break Me like you Spoony. NO ONE!
omfg that wus awsome i love how through the first like 3/4 of the video spoony only has like one line and thats “okay”
i cant believe you wait “I’m not black!” that made me crack up!
where do you get emulators everytime i look for one its usualy virus invested lol
srsly though that was AWSOME im lovein the corss over stuff
I cracked up the second the theme came on, good stuff.
went** not wait lol
“You’re Bennett the Sage!”
That was awesome xD
Someday I will uncover the secret identity of Dr. Insano.
…I’m still not convinced it isn’t Krissy.
*whispers* dude …i herd from an inside tip that its shuan fauz….keep it quite though.
I haven’t even made it through the theme song yet – I had to pause because I was laughing so much! Linkara, this is 100% full of WIN! <3
One of the better collaborations so far. I think I like it cause it was a Linkara vid that happened to have Spoony/Insano in it (and James for like 2 seconds; that was nice of him).
That was phenominal! You and Linkara are the funniest of the reviewers out there. This was great. So far, this has been the best video of all the crossovers.
Indeed, it made sense..lol
Not enough I AM A MAN
I couldn’t stop laughing near the end
When Spoony said “I’m not Black!” I just couldn’t stop laughing. The best collab yet!
Yeah, fuck that fag Linkara in the ass, he loves it so.
Good stuff .
Linkara didn’t you recognize that last boss? It was Fitzroy. Don’t know why they would use him for a Wolverine game, and not Sabertooth, Magneto or even Deathstrike.
See, I don’t remember Fitzroy having the big mech suit. That confused me.
Deathstrike is indeed in the game, though. I got stuck after I beat her.
That Paul A. Warner reference was great. It took me a second to even realize what it was.
Holy Balls! That was pretty damn awesome, these crossovers are sweet!!!
Good lord! That’s fantastic. You and freakin Lewis are a great team. It would be worth it to get you folks all together again next year in order to make another Spoony/Linkara crossover. Absolutely hilarious stuff.
two of my fave review guys XD I loved it, can’t wait for part 2!
Very well done, you two. But now my curiosity is getting the better of me. After seeing Spoony’s pics of a crossover, and THE INFAMOUS ULTIMATE WARRIOR COMIC BOOK, pleeeeeeease tell me this will be the comic we will see reviewed in the Spoony Experiment. It’s so notorious that I’m surprised Linkara hasn’t gotten to it first. That comic was even worked into a storyline on WWF TV.
Imagine At World’s End influencing Superman Returns…oh dear.
I knew it! I always had reason to believe that Linkara didn’t believe the continent of Europe existed, but now I have proof! :D
I had to watch that intro 5 times. It looked somewhat familiar, although I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Amazing job on the video Linkara!
Oh, go to the 4:20 mark to get to the WWF Storyline stuff. What an apropos time for a guy like Warrior.
Nice work! Many updates now, and i like that spoony. Keep it up
Loved it! Very funny stuff, another classic!
This was great. In a way more awesome than the epic battle, since Linkara and Spoony are the greatest reviewers out there, bar none, seriously. You guys HAVE TO work together more!
I lol’d hard when Spoony walked over to show Linkara how to do the claw leap.
“THIS GAME SUCKS!”
Linkara,with all due respect,get the hell out. While there is not much of a story between the stages (except for that one bit with Cyber’s acid trip level,that was an awesome little detour),most of it is right in the main menu. There’s a “Comic Files” option or something like that which shows you the biographies of Sniktbub and all of the bosses. So at least you would’ve known about Fitzroy and Bloodscream or whatever when you got to them.
Also,I’ve never seen any of you guys do the rising slash. The input is the hadouken motion+C. I don’t even remember how I discovered it. =) The move has a beastly range that hits both high and low,knocking those little flying bots right out of the fucking air. It’s also probably the most damaging move in the whole game,so it’ll save your ass countless times if used properly.
And how come nobody pointed out how badass the soundtrack is? Seriously. Not even Comix Zone has riffs that hard,and lemme tell you,that game was fucking metal.
There’s only two real gripes I have with this game – an ending that’s totally not worth the effort and hideously difficulty level. Most of the bosses can actually be murdered with ease if you get them into a corner with a low kick-low-kick-flying leap-low kick,etc. combo and then just claw the fuck right out of them. But then there are bosses like those lumbering robots on the first stage and fucking Fitzroy in his bullshit giant exoskeleton. Your attacks don’t stun them at all,so while you’re in recovery animation from an attack,they pound you in the ass. Your only hope is to hop around like an idiot hitting them with the spinning air attack and pray you don’t get with a stray missile or some shit.
Overall,though,this game is awesome. Just be ready to die a lot if you play it.
Incredibly funny. Makes me wish I could do reviews and stuff like that.
Oh, and ADAMANTIUM RAGE!!!!
ugh, more tgwtg tedium.
Eh, the best moments of the Linkara segment where where Spoony interrupts.
I knew we would have atleast one Linkara Spoony crossover.
Repeating what several have said, Spoony and Linkara are two of the best reviewers. (Spoony became an instant favrate after i watched his FF stuff on TGWTG, And Linkara after watching the vids he put up after he joined.
Wow, that was a great insano laugh in the end.
Though with the angry joe vid and this one, the doc got quite a beating in chicago it seems xP
I laughed so hard when I watched this. Simply awesome job the both of you.
Linkara proves once again he is not a great detective like Batman.
Great job you two, i love these cross overs of you two especially since you two have a good feud going on and such.
This was absolute comedy gold. :D You guys rock!
to bad you didnt spoof predator because thats what it reminded me of when you pulled out that device it was like where the predator is downed and arnold says you are one ugly motherfucker and then the predator repeats it. after this the predator proceeds to arm his weapon and arnold runs like shit to the da choppa and the predators laughs fill the air.lol funny video overall.
“Available”, hellooo ladies!
I wonder what game Spooney was playing on the DS in the background…
Anyway great job Linkara and Spoony
I HEARD THAT!
Awesome crossover, Linkara’s take on the opening was brilliant
btw, terrible game
Wait… Did you just indirectly admit that Spoony and Dr Insano are one and the same? More like THROUGH the Fourth Wall, amirite?! (Shut up, me.)
Also, who owns the Kirby plush? Because that is fucking AWESOME.
That was awesome guys! really enjoyed it! You two make a good team =]
me gustaria bastante que ustedes tuvieran un hijo xD
Greetings from chile
What comic are you going to review? i hope it is a shitty one
Looking forwards to more of these crossovers. Linkara’s opening is a wonderful tribute to yours.
This was great. I laughed so hard at the parody of the opening. It was great all the way through but the opening song parody was so unexpected and was so well done that I lost it XD
Good one guys, looking forward to the next part.
I hope Linkara knows all the music for Maximum Carnage was done by Green Jelly.
Too.. much.. Spoony.. in one week! RAGH!! It’s so awesome.
Heh, Dr insano strikes again!!!
Looking forward to Part 2 of this video, which will be Spoony’s comic book review.
Spoony and Linkara both great job! Love the crossover and the references to Dr.Insano!
“I heard that Linkara!” that had me in tears!
Is this going to be a series on its own?
Keep up the great work guys! Thanks for everything you’ve done!
That was very awesome!
“Get the hell out of my way Tim burton”
I’ll post more in the Forum but – that was tremendous!
To me the best part was the intro,simply awesome (the part were he replaced the “lonely” spoony by “avalaible” especially, I always notice that bit in spoony’s intro^^)
As for the review itself, well,’twas good.Never knew this game before so I’m not going to judge the “difficulty” part of the review, but this mix between spoony and linkara was simply great^^.
Gotta agree, the intro was wonderfully done.
Gotta love you sitting in the background like your cool and perfectly suave while Linkara goes insane himself. Can’t wait for the next one.
“i heard that linkara”, “mecha nostalgia critic with green hair”, “you are benett the sage” and the theme song made my day nice that james accepted to colaborate too, awesome job
why do everybody lovs crossovers so much? cause they are awesome
Awesome. Spoony just chilling on the sofa and just randomly shows to Linkara how to make the jump :P
Also, Linkara said at the comment section of TGWTG.com that we should perster you for the part 2 release date.
A damn brilliant video from Linkara. Spoony and James were just icing on the cake.
This was pretty funny. Who is Dr. Insano? The world may never know.
Linkara will be defeated…BY SCIENCE!
Awesome video guys…that was classic.
Well that was pretty damn awesome…but only because Spoony and the Nerd were in it. I really dislike Linkara, he’s not especially funny and his voice (especially that lisp of his) really irritates me.
I want that Kirby plushie he was beating up though.
Okay Noah, you and Lewis need to film a Road To San Diego film, culminating with you both at the SDCC. It would be awesomesauce.
Stac (special deja-vu edition)
Ps. I must respectfully disagree with you Sniktbub. AT4W is pretty damned funny.
I’ve grown to like AT4W quite a bit. I count Linkara among the funniest people at TGWTG (along with Spoony and NC).
Hahaha omfg that was awesome. The intro itself was amazing.
Loved the spoof of spoony’s theme song. But damn, leave stuffed kirby alone! Can’t wait for the next one.
spam low kick ftw lol, but I half expected when spoony got to the controls to easily beat through the mobs with a close up linkara going “how the hell did that happen?” and suddenly panning to spoony/insano at the controls yelling “with science” lol
You guys should have used Doug’s “X-Men theme with lyrics” for the end credits
That was great. You and Linkara work very well together, and you two are my favorite web personalities. Thanks for this.
Don’t really find linkara too funny but the video was alright.
omg! Hilarious! I love Linkara, you guys were great together!
Y’know, I had an X-Men game when I was a kid. I can’t remember what it was called (or what it was about) but I remember I loved it because the booklet had bios on all the X-Men. :-P
btw, Spoony, you have a pink DS?!
“btw, Spoony, you have a pink DS?!”
Nah, that’s MarzGurl’s DS. He could’ve just as easily used mine.
“I heard that Linkara!”
BEST LINE EVER! xD
Linkara, I think you just found a new catchphrase to go with “I am a man!”
Great vid guys.
I don’t know how Dr. Insano does it: he runs the country, hocks anti-magic-field generator kits, and still has the time to stealthily displace Spoony and harass Linkara.
Crossovers are awesome.
I knew Insano was Goggles.
Oh man, the Linkara parody of the Spoony opening video was so freaking spot on and hilarious! I love the Linkara/Spoony crossovers, you guys absolutely rule!!!
By the way Spoony, I’ve noticed that you have extreme falling skills.
Seriously! Why aren’t you guys rich and famous?
LOL! @ “You’re Bennet the Sage!”
Played worse games. Master of orion 3, anyone?
I think that video was the best thing I have seen from the crossovers yet. Wow, Dr. Insano is getting beat up in every video.
Oh man, so much win here. The crossovers are DELICIOUS, and I about died at that Yor clip. Can’t wait for the next part!
And that is one of the reason’s why Acclaim went out of business because of their crappy games.
This vid was one of the funniest vids I’ve seen in a while. I havent laughed that hard in a long time. Linkara killed this one! The into spoof was hilarious!
“what! what the!?! I’m not freaking black!” that knocked me out of my chair LMAO!
LINKARA & Spoony is freaking AWsoMe!
HaHA Linkara and Spoony, my two favorite critics
“I AM A MAN!”
“I heard that Curtis”
I showed my girlfriend earlier today, she will probably be checking out Linkara’s site later on.
Good GOD I feel old for getting the More Human Than Human reference.
I have that very same Kirby plush.
I HEARD THAT LINKARA
The Snes version does have a timer. Its invisible. And depends really what your trying to put up with.
There is no real jumping attacks in the Snes version, and the ones that are there, are delayed so horribly that sometimes its just a wonder when you do manage to pull one off.
In the Snes Version also, Wolverine already had his adamantium, instead he goes to the facility, dressed in his yellow garb and decides to kick ass from there.
It’s not necessarily better, but its an alternative to what we have of the Genesis version. Both versions suck, but its a 90’s suck that you can deal with, much like watching a Troma Film after seeing a Danny Boyle film.
I like both Linkara and The Spoony One as critics, and this crossover works as a very nice peanut-butter-and-chocolate combination; there’s enough of both review styles to be recognizable, but the synergy works, too. The mirror universe Spoony intro was especially well done, thank you both for being willing to go the extra mile to entertain us. :D
What? I’m sorry, I was distracted by the thought of Spoony and Linkara sharing a hotel room.
And let the slash-fic writers commence their typing!
You’re my favorite, Spoony – You’ve got a great skill at impromptu and babble so that all you have to do is open your mouth and you’re entertaining – You update regularly with a variety of subjects and styles, and it’s a blast to watch. You and Linkara have a great contrast working together, and it makes for some of the best character clashes – He has this overdramatic, deeply serious take, and you with Dr. Insano is simply over-the-top psychotic. It’s a great match! Loved the ending there, and can’t wait for the sequel.
Fun video, and loved the opening parody as well. Can’t believe he found things to mimic the crazy-eyed bearde guy and ‘The Man’s ride of the rigamortical giant bat. The review itself was awesome, seeing someone not entirely great at games playing and being frustrated – The tunnel with four shooter people scene was an awesome twist on what you two established. My only wish was that you had more of a script at the beginning instead of grunts and waves, but oh well.
Great job to both of ye!
LOL at Adamantium Rage!!!!!!!!!!!
FF battle win music FTW
A Dirty Harry joke in an X-man cartoon on Toon Disney, yeah kids are gonna get that.
wow i rarely hear of vg reviews using cheats and an emulator, but thats good cause that game looked well near impossible anyway!
that joke was awesome…
I bet LordKat can beat this game. I loved the intro spoof. That made me ROFL!
I think the Dirty Harry joke was intended for the adults that watched this with their kids. Kinda like Bulk and Skull in power rangers with their 3 stooges style comedy.
I love this review. I've watched it a half-dozen times at least. Part of it is Linkara's mocking of Spoony's dancing during the opening credits. Part of it is “ADAMANTIUM RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!”
The rest of it is “What? I'm not freaking BLACK!” “But you ARE a woman!”
I WANT TO KNOW WHO PAUL IS!
“I heard that Linkara!” Lmao! Paul Warner is from Phantasmagoria 2 :).
Yay blue DS!
I remember watching Megas XLR as a kid and just enjoying the robot fights but now, as an adult, I see that there were a lot of references to movies, music, books and what have you. Bruce Campbell played a giant floating head with a massive chin and he said groovy at one point. What a good show.
I heard that, Linkara.
ok why is a planet smiling?
I remember Gamepro panned the Genesis version big time. The SNES one was a little better. Props to Linkara for not kowtowing to fanboys and calling the Genesis the “Mega Drive,” who cares what they call something in Japan. Why don't we care what they call things in Brazil, or Poland?
Remember watching Megas XLR as a kid? That show was on only 5 years ago.
u no i have a comic that has the ad for this game
Linkara and Spoony FTW!Love Spoonys “non speaking” responses at the beginning. :DI've noticed doing myself the same thing as Spoony does, when playing doesn't go that good.That “Oh hoo hooh” thingy.
The Angry Video Game Nerd appearance was freaking hilarious. Linkara got it good. :DADAMANTIUM RAGE!!!
I am so happy that the AVGN finally got a in a spoony video!
I played the snes version, it sucked too. But this was great, love you guys, Adamantiume Rage!
You gotta love that X-Men theme song. 100% Pure Musical Badassness.
Great review guys. So AVGN has a video game, how about a Spoony game? You could do a take on the infamous Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde on NES and have Spoony turn into Insano! (then unfortunately get struck by lightning and die).
Or something good lol
lol the avgn punches linkara out
lol, love the spoof intro there.
that frustrated laughing when Spoony tries to get past those 4 or 5 predator looking guys is great, I’ve done that a million times myself.
Why does James Rufl was there XD you geek just dont let each others go down :P … i’m one of them but in the dark side :)
Truth be told, I just love how the humor is played here. With Spoony acting so nonchalant about him yelling at him, and coming over to play the game, as if acting like some older brother was being annoyed by his younger one on how to beat a game. The complaints about the game were genuine, and I admit, it would piss me off if I played it to.
Another small thing about the review is when you see AVGN end the Adamantium Rage with a single punch. I have to admit, that was a rather good place for the appearance. It was also rather funny the face he made while doing it, giving this angered “What the hell were you thinking?” kind of look.
I really just love Linkara’s shot-for-shot parody of Spoony’s opening. It makes me lol every time. Always great to see crossovers, especially between two of my favorite reviewers, lol
I love how Spoony is just nonchalant about everything as he just sits there in the backgroun, but then sits there looking amused as Linkara attempts to crush a can on his forehead. Also liked the AVGN cameo as Linkara goes on an “adamantium rage”, lol.
I think Linkara should consider reviewing more games, lol.
this game is horribly hard, so I agree with this opinion.
also I beat the platforms from the first level without cheats or anything and I finished the rest of the level. Although I couldn’t beat any other part of the game afterwards without cheats.
also as a side note, the super nintendo version is way different with (somehow) worse graphics, a stupid enemy counter that you have to get to zero, and a bunch of other stuff so even though it sucks, the genesis version is better.
what’s the next episode of this?
what episode continues the cliffhanger?
The warrior comic review, IIRC.
Haha. That was awesome. I love the random guest appearance by the Nerd
This Video contains the Angry Video Game Nerd punching Linkara in the face. That is epic!
I remember playing Adamantium Impotence at a friend’s house. We stopped playing half way through the first level to watch Predator and never played it again. This is what I’m talking about! Nostalgia is never anything like the reality!
The Angry Video Game would OWN Lord Vyce, the Entity, Black Lantern Spoony and Doctor Insano so bad, they would go crying for their mommies.
I heard that, Linkara!
why would they have ElsieDee? she lasts, like, four issues.
What The Fuck Was Up With The Random AVGN Cameo??!!! Do you game reviewers just go in on plane tickets to conglomerate on this reviews? Epic, nonetheless.
This crossover was during the Nostalgia Critic’s Epic Fight with the AVGN. Look it up, it is hilarious. So during this time all the Channel Awesome people of the time and the AVGN were doing crossovers.
This was most likely shot during a convention – notice how many of these crossovers are shot in hotel rooms…
It is MEGA DRIVE i dont care what you silly americans call it its MEGA DRIVE!
george lucas mustve loved the clone saga, which explains the entire prequels set…
Was this made during the Kickassia shoot? I remember Spoony mentioning something about this crossover in the commentary – where Spoony was exhausted and Linkara kept goading him to do his Dr. Insano character.
Look below for your answers.
no, this was made during the first crossover nerd/vs nostalgia critic.
I LOVE Linkara’s posture at the beginning of the video. It’s hilarious
OMG! You copied Spoony’s way of talking flawlessly! XD
I miss That Chick with the Goggles.
Actually that was Mecha green haired Little Kuriboh, he told me that when I went to AX.
i like how spoony is just playing the ds this entire time
