James Rolfe, AKA the Angry Video Game Nerd, is finally taking back the power. He's spent years slaving and cursing over the brutal games of the past, and now it's his turn to make you suffer. Or not, because The Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures—a 2D side-scroller that riffs on plenty of classic games—actually looks pretty fun. Peep some pre-alpha footage below for nods to Mega Man 2, Castlevania, Silver Surfer, and more.
The Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures is heading to PC later this year, and should hit Steam, as well, since it already passed through Greenlight. We've seen how he's doing in the feature-length film department, so it's interesting to see his game unfold on top of that.
