I always thought Jad the Taff was a name meant to sound cool to the Japanese audience, something plausibly English / American rather than a misspelling. You're probably right though.

 

Either that or he's a Welsh character.

 

 

I think I got my eureka moment after hearing some Japanese guy pronounce 'tough' in a 90s coin-op though.

Guess I wasn’t the only one who found Mike irritating. I always got the feeling he didn’t want to be in the Monday videos, and on the Twitch streams I’ve seen he comes across as bored. It was all downhill since Bootsy left tbh... and of all the passionate, enthusiastic streamers on Twitch I don’t understand why someone would follow and donate to him?! 

 

I still enjoy James’ videos, more so when he’s being himself and not the Nerd.

I didn’t enjoy the c64 avgn

 

so many great games on the machine, and he shows none of them

 

Channel going downhill fast unfortunately 

 

But isn't it all about the bad games on the system ? Avgn has never been about the good games.

 

I'd like to see him do some alternative videos (perhaps not as avgn) on the good games but I don't see it happening.

Did AVGN ever open up as to why Bootsy left? I know it doesn't strictly matter now but just thought of it when I saw this thread pop up.

 

I'm currently on an AVGN binge during lunches. On Season 5 at the moment, most of his earlier videos stand up really well today I must say.

Mike said he and Bootsy weren't getting along. Bootsy elaborated further and said was dissatisfied with a few things and was met with confrontation and disagreement when he aired them. 

 

Mike's gone now, of course, but as the Screenwave slobs are pretty much running the show these days he presumably still has no interest in being involved as he'd have even more people to contend with.

People also come up with all sorts of crazy stories about why splits and rows happened behind the scenes but they all still seem to be talking from time to time. People forget this has been going on for around 15 years with Mike being involved right from the start and people drift off to do other things.
