I wasn't aware that this was released prior, though I am aware that he consistently re-posts old videos. You're not entirely correct about his releases, though. He may have contracts that restrict his releasing of videos, but several of his film reviews, like his marathon reviews of horror films and the sort, are released independently and are uploaded on Youtube when he sees fit. His game reviews as the AVGN are advertised via his Youtube account at the same time that they're released on Game Trailers.

Speaking of which, for those who haven't seen his Indy video games review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O82pX2XQIQ

Yes, but the VERY first frame in this video says Spike.com

It's still a schtick. I get that it's a series, and I get that it's attention getting - but that doesn't stop me from finding it grating and idiotic. Good for him and his creativity?

We've already got one of those. So, good idea, but searching would have been a better one.

Fair enough. If you find the character grating, you find the character grating. I guess we all have a schtick.

Considering the result, merging would have been an even better idea.

This was just as good as the 70 min long Star Wars Episode I review on Youtube.
