    Also, the original Earthworm Jim did get rereleased in HD on Xbox LIVE Arcade a few years ago, it turned out great. Same great game filling out a widescreen TV and it looked fanastic, it looks very cartoonish which was perfect for it. I'm hoping they rerelease Earthworm Jim 2 in HD.

    No mas political jokes.

    Years ago the rights to Earthworm Jim were bought and it seemed like a new game was coming out but it never came to fruition. A short $20 game could do decent business on Steam and Xbla.

    All hail your mighty first-ness. Truly bards shall sing of this most epic of moments across the generations. Children shall grow up dreaming of the day that they too may be "First".

    Loved the bit. Though I wish you would have found a way to fit the cow in there somehow. And by, fit, I mean drop it on someone at the end.
  • Indy  - Don't do drugs, kids...
    I always thought the cows hired a giant mutated robin to kill E.J. And then I thought that in his battle with the mutant robin he was cut in half, and one half was eaten, making the cows think that E.J. was killed, but his other half lived on and found solace among the Mushroom Men.

    ...

    This bizzarre dream sequence brought to you by vicodin, nyquill, and a mind that probably needs tending to by professionals.

    Can't wait to see more of this..... I remember its been quite awhile since you've done of these, and its really entertaining to hear the stories these characters have. It'd be awesome to see a story on Waluigi, Captain Olimar, or Captain falcon.

    Hooray for Video Game Confessions! You should do one for Cloud Strife, that would be amazing. Maybe Dominik could get him to explain just what happened at the end of that game?

    "It's about the new Earthworm Jim game."
    Wh-holy fu-REALLY!?!?!
    "There isn't a new EWJ game."
    "Exactly."
    Fuck.

    Given that Earthworm Jim was a 90s icon, would you consider doing Vector Man? Loved those games on the Genesis back in the day!

    I really enjoyed the show when I was a kid. I wasn't aware that there was a couple of video games until I found the articles on Wikipedia.

    Loved the little political humor. Also noticed that Dominic was wearing a necktie in this one instead of a bowtie. Did you lose it?

    I wonder how a "Spyro the Dragon" one would go?...
  • Spiritkitten
    avatar
    I agree, Spyro was the first 3D video game I played!
  • ladydiskette

    Next to Vault Boy, I would love to see the Walker Brothers do a Video Games Confession one on Spyro as well.

    Oh man...I can see it now. All the comments would be talking about how much Skylanders sucks while I sit in the corner and cry.
    I gave the game a chance, and I enjoyed it.
    I don't care what Activision's goal was with making it. I just wanted a good game to play!
    ...I bet my opinion will change once I get out of high school and have to pay my own bills.

    Man, it's been forever since we had one of these.
  • SilverFoxR  - *takes a drink*
    Jim, you ain' kiddin'...

    I played Earthworm Jim 3D and, oh yeah... that game was terrible. Yeah, it tried to be wacky, but it was absolutely terrible... one of the worst games I've played.
  • Katojana
    Haha I really enjoyed this VGC.
    Earthworm Jim was the MAN - excuse me - WORM of the 90s.
    Though I have to point that out...
    You used three or four times the same drawing clip when you drew the walls. It's just nitpicky but nyaw! I NOTICED IT!

    Hello everyone, I'm LevelUpLeo and for the past 3 years I've been doing a podcast called Level Up. And it just so happens my first review of the Podcast was Earthworm Jim, and ever since I've been doing EWJ reviews for my anniversary show. This year marked the last game, and I know the history of EWJ very well. Let me point out a few problems with Doug's video

    First off, he says that the show was cancelled AFTER Earthworm Jim 3D. That's not true, the show was cancelled in 1996, while Earthworm Jim 3D only came out in 1999. Though the show was cancelled while Earthworm Jim 3D was being developed, the idea that the show was cancelled BECAUSE of it is simply impossible.

    Secondly, Earthworm Jim 3D had no creativity? Bullshit. The plot was that Jim was trapped inside his own mind (very different from what the other games were doing at the time). The levels included a land made entirely of cheese, a barnyard war zone and a undead disco. The characters included MOOsolini (GET IT?), an alien fry cook and Baroness Beaver-for-a-Head. There was no lack of creativity. What made the game suck were the shitty controls!

    Third, as someone already pointed out, Earthworm Jim had an HD remake come out a few years ago. Beyond that, he had another game right after the N64 title called Earthworm Jim Menace 2 the Galaxy (THAT is the one that lacked creativity). Yes it came out only a month later, but it deserve a mention. Also, there was a Earthworm Jim 4 in development once on the PSP, but was cancelled, does that not deserve a mention?

    He also appeared in two fighting game series (I'm not sure if that was before or after his N64 game though) and his TV show should be coming out on DVD within 3 weeks (sources say November first 2012... seriously!). I'd think he might want to work along with this, as he's probably getting royalty checks from it.

    Also, how does EWJ wear just a regular suit? He has no arms! He'd need to be wearing his super suit with a suit on top of it.

    Yes, I'm being a Douchy McNickPick, but like I said, EarthWorm Jim means a lot to me. Funny stuff regardless, and I like the "If I can make the world just a bit more surreal" moral.

    "and a undead disco."

    Let me guess: The Boogie Man! *BA-BOM-TSH!*

    " Also, how does EWJ wear just a regular suit? He has no arms! He'd need to be wearing his super suit with a suit on top of it."

    Actually, go back and rewatch it. He did say that it was a regular suit on top of his super suit.
  • LevelUpLeo

    No Boogie man, but I think it was called "Boogie Nights" if I remember correctly.

    And you are 100% right on the point about his suit. I had understood that Doug/Dominique said that he wasn't wearing his muscle suit, but was wearing A suit. My mistake.

    seriously, is no one gonna do anything about you? you keep posting this stupid shit and ive even reported you
  • Falcovsleon20
    avatar
    Doug I get the feeling you didn't play EWJ 3-D, did you? You just got this bit from word of mouth.

    For the record, EWJ 3-D isn't really one of the worst casualties out of that "format". It's actually an okay game at worst. (Even if it is kind of a clone of Banjo-Kazooie)

    Well at least he mentioned the TV Show. That's about close as I can get to the Nostalgia Critic reviewing that show.

    Man, this has been a long time VGC had came back. Good to hear back from you Dominic.
  • Fangheart
    avatar
    if Earthworm Jim 3D destroyed 3D platforming, then Mirror's Edge brought back and saved it. no one is allowed to say that 3D platforming games are bad when Mirror's Edge exists.

    plus Mario 64 was really good too....
  • theeliltespear  - At last
    I feel its been forever since you did the last Video Game Confession Doug. Great idea for a "return" character I do say. Earthworm Jim was slated to make Earthworm Jim 3, thing is though....I haven't heard about it in like a year, so probably not happening anymore. Makes me sad as a gamer.
  • InkNinja  - Thanks for remembering your other characters!!!
    avatar
    Thanks for making a new VGC. I really love them and missed them when you stopped doing them for a while. You should do one for Fruit Ninja!
  • Shadow125
    I felt this one could have been done better, but over all, it is nice to see these vids come back. We may have lost the NC but at least we still have Dominique and Ask That Guy.
  • angel85
    avatar
    psh, you think Earthworm Jim 64 was bad, just try Bubsy 3-D, talk about a game series killed by the 3-D transition.

  • themilo  - yay video game confessions is back.
    avatar
    Nice episode and I hope you do some more videogame confessions I would love for you to do the demi fiend from shin megami tensei nocturne and reimu from touhou but well goldeneye is not a third person platformer its fps theres not even a jump button how did you make that mistake?
  • keniakittykat
    avatar
    By far the best video game confession so far.
    This one actually seems more like an actual homage to the character, rather than making fun of it.
    And I miss Jim too... The games as well as the cartoon was equally awesome.
  • sprezzatura
    avatar
    Earthworm Jim! *starts humming theme song* I loooove that cartoon- never played the video game, but the TV show is one of my favorite cartoons ever... I'm not much of a gamer, but if they made a new EJ game I'd probably try it :D

    Nice one, nice one, still I think you would've done better if you kept political humor netruel sir. Anytime you do that the poltics will start flying.
  • GhostManTGWTG  - Loved It
    avatar
    I did love the Eartworm Jim games. Looking forward to more VGC, but I wonder if Luigi ever stepped in?
  • Torugu
    avatar
    Been a while since I saw another VGC and this one is done well. Some characters I could suggest are Banjo from 'Banjo-Kazooie', Pit from 'Kid Icarus', and Crash from 'Crash Bandicoot.'
  • cvrpapc  - wow i was so expecting something else
    avatar
    When he got to ...what do desperate soul crushed people do?

    I was waiting for: Law School

    Thanks for giving us a break. Good thing about political season is the lawyer jokes fly under the radar for a few months lol. But that cracked me up. Mittens for Kittens!
  • Hinatachan360

    I was expecting him to say law school too. Earthworm Jim: crazy, surreal defense lawyer sounds pretty interesting to me.
