Michael "Mike" Matei is an executive producer for Cinemassacre Productions. The story centers around the alleged burial of over 1 million copies of the proclaimed "worst video game of all time", E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600, as The Nerd embarks on a quest to prove that there is nothing buried there after being pressured by fans to review the video game, while being pursued by federal authorities who believe he is investigating Area 51 and the crash of an unidentified flying object.
He produced a variety of content such as Motherfuckin' Mondays, Top 10's and other game reviews. In interviews, Matei has stated that he originally was going to include this as part of the abandoned video "AVGN Game Glitches 2". This is the first review of a PlayStation game.
I'm sure someone mentioned this already but I think the reason why Mega Man's suit color changes with a special weapon is that the NES can only output so many colors on the screen at the same time. The AVGN reviews Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout (NES). Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie is finally wrapping up. So after that's done its theatrical run, it'll be nice for James and I to be able to focus more on web content again.
The AVGN reviews the Sega CD system and the games Ground Zero: Texas, Slam City with Scottie Pippen, Double Switch, Night Trap, Corpse Killer, Time Gal, Lethal Enforcers, The Adventures of Willy Beamish, Road Avenger, Jurassic Park, Prize Fighter, and many more.
The AVGN reviews the Nintendo Power Glove, the first time he reviews something other than just a game. Helping in Rolfe's ideas eventually turned into guest appearances as game-related characters, but because he doesn't consider himself an actor, Mike greatly prides himself on his artistic and technical contributions.
Hopefully, you enjoyed getting to hear a bit about one of the all-time greats of gaming videos. The full AVGN theme song was used for the first time in this episode. Mike was gracious enough to take the time to talk to Nintendo Enthusiast and we picked his brain on his history, his love for Nintendo, and what he has coming up. We proudly present to you an exclusive interview with the one, the only, Mike Matei.
The video quality is about what you'd expect from YouTube, however, this set is far better simply for the fact that you don't have to deal with YouTube's cumbersome interface, ads, and the random pixilation that sometimes occurs during YouTube videos.
So, we were in a position where there wasn't going to be any new web-videos from James on the website for roughly half a year. In the course of the interview, our guest discussed many key points he's made in past videos, what has inspired him to create Zelda content on Cinemassacre, and why he enjoys the series so much.
I started to become known by that Mike Matei title though, so when I first started making solo videos I called myself by that handle,” says Matei, although the real Mike Matei eventually took over as he began to make more serious, less comedic videos such as a string of ‘Top Ten' moments in video games and some good, old fashioned game reviews; many of which are homebrews, hacks, or rarities.
While choosing what game to review, the Nerd briefly looks at the infamous E.T., but then passes by. Although the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde review was intended to be the last, Rolfe's friends, who enjoyed the previous Bad NES games” reviews, encouraged him to create another.
