    Hey, I speak dutch and translated the e-mail in english, altough it doesn’t really make much sense even then:

    “Are you still awake?
    Yeah, it’s something with this daylight saving time.
    Very entertaining on sundays are the video game reviews of the Angry Video Game Nerd (the site works occasionaly),
    the nintendo version of “Jeroen ‘Zeikerdje’ Ollen” (no Idea who that is).
    Rewiews of old games, cause you can hapily shit on them these days.
    Just as funny is Noah Antwiller A.K.A. Spoony; Not a good word about bad games in game-history, but in his own unique way.”

    What I dont get is if people don’t like what you have to say about final fantasy 8, why do they watch your videos? I find it absolutely HILARIOUS that total fanboy faggots DEFEND a fucking video game!! Its like JESUS, they’re actually correcting you about HOW A GUNBLADE WORKS! If you made fun of a movie or a game that I like I wouldn’t care, I’d enjoy what your view is because I happen to realize unlike a lot of people that my view isn’t the only one and that not everyone is going to like what I like.

    A TIP FOR THE FF8 FAN BOYS:
    Defend something that is actually important, like gay marriage rights or how America’s government wastes its tax money on nuclear weapons instead of things the country actually needs. STOP DEFENDING FINAL FANTASY 8, YOU JUST MAKE YOURSELF LOOK LIKE A PATHETIC BUTT FUCK TARGET!!!

    Anywaysss…
    Spoony, you should definitely get a girl to do reviews on bad chicks flicks and horrible games for girls on your site, that would make your site more interesting, not that it isn’t already. Another person (most preferably a girl) that’s fun to watch would make your site fucking KICKASSS. I really hope you consider this.

    Okay, gun logic 101:

    Gunblades =/= work.. EVER. No. You’re wrong. What the mother fuck? A gun and a blade? WHY COULDN’T YOU USE A BAYONET? Also, any gun that goes off when it makes contact with something (I.E you poke something with the barrel) is EXTREMLEY shittly designed. An old musket with wet powder would be safer than that. I truly don’t understand how some of these fanboys can defend this game. USE LOGIC-

    Wait I just tried applying logic to FF lolwut.

    There is nothing wrong with a man-crush on Kevin Sorbo. He can:
    1. Punch someone in the soul with the force of an avalanche.
    2. Score a warrior Cylon princess.
    3. Captain a ship through time and off-prime time slots.
    4. Maintain fabulous hair.

    How do you not get the appeal of Kingdom Hearts? It’s one of the most obviously commercialized company crossovers aimed at children of all ages I’ve ever seen. I’ve never played it, and I don’t plan on ever playing it for this reason, but this is its appeal. It’s probably at least a decent game; it seems to blend JRPG style and turn-based game play with ARPG artwork and character development. If I wasn’t so embittered at an entire planet full of people trying to sell me shit I’d probably play it. Cogs of corporate capitalism co-opting creativity and cramming kaleidoscopic, candy-coated, “kid-friendly” cartoon crap down my craw, “convincing” me with casts of fondly kept characters; harkening back to halcyon days of childhood innocence lost in a haze, recaptured for me in a brand-new game. My very first thought was, “That’s FUCKING lame!” I cave-in while they cash-out? On MY nostalgia?! A crass contrivance to cleave from me any compensation by casually combining the collective capital of two companies once considered quite above reproach; responsible for retaining my restless attention with quality kids’ distractions? Didn’t consider I’d be competently clever enough catch on? Kiss my cock!
    This game didn’t kill my respect for the addicting qualities of a Final Fantasy game, although I have played VII-X and have yet to finish a single one of them, and it has had little to no bearing on my affection for Disney’s ability to spread the joy and wonder of childhood… while making money in the process. I know there’s always a catch of some kind; there are no acts of pure altruism where somebody doing a good deed didn’t get something in return, even if only a sense of self-satisfaction. Disney was built on a beautiful dream by flawed men, but the key philosophy behind man’s nature to take something pure and twist it to his own ends is as ancient and undeniably beyond reproach as Spoony’s virginity.
    What this game did accomplish was to convince me that I should never play this game, but this decision was made years ago when I was full of piss and vinegar and anti-establishment hatred; Catholic Education: repressing your filthy emotions since primary school. Now that I’m older, and perhaps a bit wiser, I’m more accepting of the fact that despite something’s flaws if you see some value in it, you owe it to yourself to at least check it out. If it turns out to be a miserable failure anyway, at least you’ll have no regrets.
    I’m a stubborn optimist; I remain hopeful… because somebody has to.
    P.S. The name above is my user name for thatguy.com. And I’m sure you’re not still a virgin… becuase that would just be sad. Hope you enjoyed this rant; will post videos on You Tube soon if I’m ever allowed near a web-cam again.

    I love that people are still defending the gunblade by comparing it to the bayonet, but this fails for three reasons. First, a bayonet basically lets a rifle double as a spear, not sword. Second, you are suppose to either use it as a gun or a spear, not both. Finally, the bayonet actually been shown to work in real combat.

    I find it funny how the fanboy defending the gunblade made an error. It doesn’t fire automatically, you do have to pull the fucking trigger while swinging the fucking sword. He got that wrong because he was lazy enough to turn the auto-fire on in the game. I am in no way defending this piece of shit, which I have played and beaten, but love to point out the fact the fans of this god awful game are to stupid to know what thier talking about

    It is always great to see this sort of questtion/answer thing.
    I like how you react to some of the more ridiculus or rude questions/comments and it is interesting to hear your oppinions on things. Especially on the parts where I have a diffrent oppinion, since it is always nice to hear the other version about something; as long as it is not told in an insulting way which you are able to do. (Unlike some of the people who comment on your work aparently)

    I also have a question that doesn’t need to be answered by you, but maybe by someone else who looks at this video of yours: what is that last song you play? I instantly grew to like it but I was unable to track it down or even to find out what it is called or who made it.

    without midiclorians, star wars wouldnt suck as much ass as it does.

  • HEYitsnotbraindead

    Kris is right, Summer time DOES suck ass :P

    Spoony i had a blast hearing you try to pronounce ”Zomertijd” (Summer time)
    ‘zumtut’ i am laughing my ass off! that’s some crazy shit! :P

    favorite Spoony moment ever :D

    also i think Kris is talking to someone else because the mail he wrote is about how other critics are fun to watch, but be proud he likes you too Spoony.

    oh speaking of Dutch ‘Spoon’ would be ‘Lepel’ :P

    how i know Dutch? 
    that’s nothing i am going to study Danish next…

    okay before anyone asks -and i hope someone didn’t beat me too it- here is the hole mail from Kris in English, please note i’ll make it a simple translation.

    Kris:

    ”are you still awake? Yes, Summer time is really something right? really fun on Sunday are the video game reviews made by the Angry video game nerd (sometimes the site works) The Nintendo version from Jeroen ”7.eikerdje” Otten, And reviews of older games because you can really shit on them this day and age. without glasses but still as entertaining is Noah Antwiler aka Spoony he really hates bad games from gaming history, but then on his own….”

    and there it cuts off.

    i don’t know this Jeroen Otten aka 7.eikerdje i am assuming a Dutch critic of some kind, fun to note is that 7.eikerdje seems to be from the word zeikerd, and best way i can think of to translate that is someone who whines and complains.

    ah that was fun, pity zumtut starts again at the end of the month!
    LOL 

    blast NOW i notice Cyberwasteland beat me too it, well was still fun.
    and his Dutch/English is very good, nicely done.

    Yeah, you can use a bayonet as a spear like you can use a gunblade as a blade. Second point is pointless because you cannot use a gunblade as a gun and a blade at the same time. Last point is merely a blackout argument, because you couldn’t even know if it works. ;-)
