He made it 5 levels in and called it a day. One of them is literally just the intro.

If you don't understand the Ecco the Dolphin controls you're gonna have a bad time.
The attack is not for movement speed. It halts all your momentum. Meanwhile if you just press the swim button three or four times you're going top speed. If you look at his footage, he's trying to dash attack through oncoming currents, and complaining about running out of air...
Yes, you're spending 3 times as long in the currents, bro.

It's not a shocker that these games get better if you can read the manual and get through the BEGINNING.

>You 100% NEED to upgrade your sonar so you can attack enemies with it
You don't. You can actually complete the game without it. I did it when I was 9.

Also don't play the Genesis version. Play the SegaCD version. It has better music and an actual save feature. Also emulate it. It's a puzzle game, nobody's going to judge you for using save states.

Yeah, Its a bad episode. He doesn't have anything remotely decent as of late. The arguments he made about the games intro and gameplay were completely bad. The music is amazing along with the gameplay, as far as difficulty goes, yeah, its super hard, but what game wasnt at that time. He is running out of ideas.

AVGN has been shit since 2012. It's clear he's burned out and hasn't been wanting to do it for a long time now but since it's his main source of income he's pretty much forced to do it now. He doesn't even write his own episodes anymore if I remember correctly the company that owns his content does it now.

shit for real. i didnt know all that. i see, so its not like hes actually picking his own games, because you can pretty much pick any game and point out its flaws, thats not hard to do. i immediately knew it was a bad video 4m in, thumbs down that shit and closed it.

He still writes AVGN himself, its just he has a group of fat fucks (the ones who shoehorned themselves in front of the camera until people yelled enough that they are rip off RLM to get them the fuck back behind the scenes) who now do his effects and music.

Yeah thats them. I am the same way anything they were in I would shut off near immediately. The fat bearded guy on the left is the worst. Loud as fuck and talks all over everyone. The one positive I can say about them is the fat guy was a really spot on impression of Malebolgia from the spawn film. You can tell he really studied John Leguizamo for that shit

They are a part of a production company. James hired them so he could focus on his family life and shit more. A few of them do his music and a few help with editing and effects iirc.

Here's a circlecjerk thread about them

As other people have said, AVGN has been shit for years. I still like James though and the non-AVGN content where it's just him talking about a movie or something. Only other person I liked that was on the channel was Bootsy but I guess they treated him badly and he left.
