Nice to see Game Gear get some more exposure.
I don't care for this trend of youtube videogame reviewers expressing themselves by asking rhetorical questions.
And I don't care of this new trend of the utterly insipid videos made by Mike being the only output of Cinemassacre.com
I don't like Mike either, and I watched this video yesterday and was thoroughly disappointed.
Dude reviews the Game Gear and doesn't review one Sonic the Hedgehog or Disney game? Pssht, fuck that. Nobody really cares about X-Men or Chuck Rock.
And dammit Streets of Rage 2 for Game Gear is a fucking amazing port. Shame on you, Mike Matei. Go back to being the AVGN's annoying sidekick.

Meh, I don't mind Mike all that much. In the over-saturated world of retro game video reviews you can do a lot worse. I also like that he's often a lot friendlier towards Sega than James even though he says he isn't a "Sega guy" in this recent video as if it's a bad thing.
I didn't enjoy his videos at first but I guess he's grown on me.
Also he's just filler, they're busy with the AVGN movie and all.
Mike is uninteresting and doesn't really bring in anything new. What would have been more interesting is showing off that Game Gear and how it works.
There's one enormous thing I hate about Mike. He keeps pulling videos. He put up an Elmo in Grouchland Review, Inspector Gadget Minecraft review, and some Bugs Bunny Outtakes video. All of those videos have been pulled because Mike couldn't take the criticism and negative comments they were getting. Amazing how a channel dedicated to criticizing can't take any criticism themselves.
Also I don't like how they keep uploading their DVD bonus features onto Youtube. The episodes are already online for free, so those extras are the only reason I ever would consider buying one of their DVDs. But now the extras can also be watched online for free.
I should have screenshotted it, but the JamesNintendoNerd channel lost over 80,000 subscribers while James was gone and Mike was making all the videos. Now that James is back, the subscription count is finally going back up.
At least the guy was honest, he said he wasn't a Sega guy in the beginning.
Yeah, the review was not very good either in my opinion, at least for showing off why a Game Gear is worth picking up. Maybe after paying to get a modded system he only had money left to buy a couple crappy games for his video. Triple Trouble would have gone a long way in the video though.
This quote from the comments is pretty telling though
That reminds me of the guy who bashed Nier because he was too stupid to figure out that he was supposed to go to the big red X on the map to continue and just declared the game unplayable.Actually, Mike, I owned the Crash Dummies game. in the bomb factory, you're supposed to blow out the fuses on the lit bombs while smashing the dummy parts on the conveyor belt.
I watched the rest of the review now and it was pretty lame. It was just a random jumble of Game Gear games making the title of "Game Gear Review" pretty damn misleading.
I'm not a big fan of Mike's reviews. Not just bc he deletes stuff when people dislike it and he can't deal with it. There is just something about his voice and how he keeps it low until he more or less screams and hell and then he just hurts my ears. Like others have said this is really not a GG review but just him showing off some sub par games.
Quite possibly the worst Game Gear review I've seen... and I don't dislike Mike, he's done some ok stuff like his show about game glitches.
This thread needs more... ENGINEERS
I am interested to meet the guy who gave his game gear tv output.
btw, I can't stand Mike as well. He's like that friend who always tries to get in everything even tho he has now knowledge of it.
What I found more impressive was eviltim's GGTV PCB, that thing is beautiful! It probably costs over $100 though. How come nobody's talking about that?
Yeah, Mike is no replacement for AVGN/James, but he could be far, FAR worse. Pick a random review in the related videos sidebar. You have a 99% chance of getting total crap.
