Storyline

After the Nerd goes through a frantic frenzy about playing nothing but bad games, he finally settles down and randomly picks a NES game called Gyromite. When he starts the game he finds it unusual that you can't progress further into the game unless the second controller is being used with controls the barriers that prevents you from proceeding. The Nerd isn't sure who he can invite to help him play a bad game, until the robot named Rob appears and says he'll help the Nerd. It turns out that Rob the robot who was a Nintendo accessory was designed to play as a second player for the game Gyromite. However the Nerd finds the game boring even with the help of a robot. So he switches to the other game Rob is compatible for which is called Stack-Up. Not much of a game cause you're giving the robot command directly from the game itself. After no longer being to stand playing these two games, the Nerd tries to convince Rob to play a different game, only to be horrified that Rob can only play ... Written by J LeGault

A satisfying episode 100#
8 March 2011 | by kaderd1See all my reviews

Oh the nerd. He has written some of the most hilarious web show episodes. His 100th episode was debated to be a couple things but most people thought it would be ET for Atari 2600 but he specifically said he would do a ROB review. But now to the review. The beginning is a good start with the Metroid music. Which sets the example that this is episode 100 because once he is done a motivational speech about bad games he shows different consoles and says "and this f**king thing". But to cut to the chase the humor is well-written, the acting is good, the end battle is epic and it is a satisfying 100. Now I don't want to give much away but it is a great episode and if you have not seen many of these episodes then why are you listening to me, go watch some because they help you tell which games are bad from the past in case you buy a retro console.
