Hey gang, simply incredible...
I was able to meet YouTube star, James Rolfe.
Also known as Angry Video Game Nerd.
For some unknown reason, he was visiting Timeline Arcade. It's a huge arcade a block away from one of my part time jobs. It was so close, so I decided to swing by. I did so mostly on a whim, and as a personal favor for a friend.
My friend Matt is a die hard fan of Angry Video Game Nerd. When I saw the name of this guy was visiting the local arcade, I instantly recalled watching the show with my Friend. I immediately jumped up and let my friend know AVGN was visting my town. My friend Matt really wanted me to hand an artwork to James Rolfe. He didn't really care how I did it, just that it got there. That was the main goal. In addition to that, I was able to get a photo with James, and 2 signatures. One for my friend, and one for me.
I had a copy of AH! Real Monsters signed by James. The Add for the event said "bring in your HORRIBLE games to be signed." Now, this isn't a horrible game at all, but the copy I had is... You see, it has a bad glitch. The one level should start off with Ickis, Krumm, Oblina, however, on my copy, it was just Ickis. (Red bunny looking dude) This level had instances where you would switch up characters to solve puzzles. Without the 2 other characters, you are perpetually stuck on the level! As utterly upset as I am with the game, it's now one of my favorites. It has the kiss of James AVGN approval/disapproval. (Ha, see what I did there?) If I EVER trade this game in for another game, (if not for several) I would ABSOLUTELY let the next guy know the one level is a death trap.
All in all, James Seems like a pretty chill dude. Very nice and approachable. He was smiling warmly to everyone the whole time. If you get a chance to meet him, I'd say go for it.
