Christmas Special 2008 – Crappy Christmas Games (Part 2)
Part 2 of the review for all these crappy Christmas games! This is a continuation from the game reviewed in part 1…and what a shit game it is! I hope you’re all enjoying the review so far – and remember, if you like it please remember to leave a comment and give good ratings. And if you’re really in a happy, festive mood – by all means favourite the video as well 😉
(Before anyone asks how I know this, I AM ALSO AN ANGRY REVIEWER FROM WAY BACK WHEN (if you've never heard of me, that's because I never found the same size audience for my work that Mike and others had for theirs, but because I was involved in the old community, Mike and I were friends who chatted occasionally outside of YouTube!))For those of you who are wondering what the hell happened to this guy, the truth is fairly simple: Once he started college, the man became incredibly busy not only with his studies, but also with the small online business he had in selling video games on eBay (perhaps to pay his tuition). This left him with very little time for reviewing games or playing them for that matter. He found a job he was pretty successful with later on. I forget what the exact title of the position was, but since I know he utilized the computing degree he studied so hard for, I believe it was some kind of computer/office job.Later on, he met the lady who ended up becoming his fiancé, then his wife and after that, the mother of his first child. Then at some point afterwards, he deleted his Facebook and since then, I have totally lost track of him.After what has been 13 years of silence and inactivity, I am beginning to doubt that Mike will ever return to making gaming videos for YouTube, but if I did it after nine years of on-and-off inactivity and experimentation with different genres of videomaking (see the "Greatexpectations320: Homecoming" video on my channel), I don't see why he can't.
It's such a shame Mikey went away from YouTube (not that I know why), because I really like the "amateurish" side of it (that doesn't mean it wasn't put well together), and yes, I just happen to dislike how "professional" everything looks now. Furthermore, he really seemed to have went out of his way to get the CD-i and the game, and as far as we know, played it as intended, without emulation and cheats and whatnot. Everything about this just feels authentic, it all feels "you", and that's great when today is all about being as safe as you could be just for views and whatever. So thank you mikeyspiky200, even years and years later, I still remember somewhat fondly of your videos from these simpler times on YouTube.
AVGN should definitely review Christmas Crisis this year's Christmas.
So did I XD
Lol AVGN had the same argument about restarting the whole game lol.
thats so funny, when u threw the CDI the second time u looked like u were bout to burst laughing lol, did u happenned to bounce it off ur bed and if so did it hit a wall or something cus u looked like something happenned and u were gona craic ur shite laughing lol
The coal would be better than than the CD-I games. At least there's a use for the coal.
LOL yeah, it slid off the bed, crashed into the radiator and onto the floor. There's now a dent in my floor boards!! But the CD-I doesn't have a scratch on it!
XD Yeah, the CD-I owned me
Lol this is your best video yet! Haven't watched the other two yet though.
thats so funny lol i could totally tell by your face something had gone wrong lol, im still laughing about it even the next day lol. Oh Merry xmas mick by the way. Hope your dad is looking forward to the celtic vs ranger match,should be good. 🙂
Or even better, a bag of poop!
No, moron, you completely missed my point. Coal is actually worth something.
Well you're the moron here. I was making a reference. I understand your joke damnit.
lol, I never expected anyone to point out the mouse mat!! But you're absolutely right, it was from the Nintendo Magazine in 2005. Nothing can outbeat the Chain Chomp beach ball though, do you have that one?
"and then u throws it out… the window" i lol'd so hard there
No he talked about failing at one level and becoming an expert at the previous levels to fail again at the one he originally failed at.
i have a cdi and its fun
Well, I can draw that stupid password in about 6 seconds, but playing for hours?? No break for resting your hands?? I wouldn't be able to write that fast! It's just as bad as B-a-r-b-i-e games! :0
What did you destroy?
i dont own a cdi i was just joking lol
rated a 5
Are kids these days really so lazy that they have to spell nd instead of and? You would think all of those energy drinks would put some pep in their step Lol. Spelling like that makes people wonder how they were even able to open the laptop, or even more miraculously START the computer…
And do you know what REALLY sucks? The vid that came before this has an audioswap with no captions or annotations explaining what's going on, damnit!
Actually it did have an annotation…
"And then you take your CD-i… and you chuck it out the window!" *CRASH!* I loved that part. It sounded like the CD-i got banged up pretty good.
I read on a previous comment that you were planning to sell the CD-I you bought to make a lot of money, how did that work out? Did you make a lot of money? Or did you loose out?
I actually had the Bullet Bill one = P
closed captioning is shit. "every time you issue five lights he hopes to dot holt cam u, and miro and their is no way to continue from where he died." CC DOES NOT APPROVE OF ACCENTS!

"you know that's like playing your christmas day there are christmas day and you've let alone because you talking to stuffs." watching with CC makes 100% funnier.

Since when a sleigh climbs stairs? :DDD
XD,what Mikey says is true but how he says it is hilarious. This game is pretty much a never ending cycle of trial and error.
