Web Video: PatTheNESPunk
Pat the NES Punk is a Web Video series hosted at The Punk Effect and RetroWare TV, as well as YouTube. The series involves Pat, a Totally Radical dude from New Jersey that collects, plays, and reviews NES games. The series is unique in its own right, as it averts the Caustic Critic archetype started by The Angry Video Game Nerd, while taking some inspiration and giving the occasional Shout-Out.

Characters in the series involve Pat, of course, R.O.B, Donkey Kong and Junior, Allison (Pat's girlfriend for one story arc), Ian (a Jerk Ass video game store owner), Frank (a confused old dude), and others. Games that Pat has reviewed include:

  • Baseball Stars
  • The Three Stooges NES game
  • The Black Box (launch titles) NES games
  • Golgo 13 Top Secret Episode
  • Ultimate Stuntman
  • NARC
  • Power Pad games
  • Action 52
  • Rush'n Attack
  • Skull and Crossbones
  • Chiller
  • The Last Starfighter
  • Panic Restaurant
  • Super Dodge Ball
  • A Turbo-Grafx 16 tribute
  • Nintendo World Championships 1990, both the championships and the game.
  • Caltron 6 in 1
  • Games included in the M82
  • A bunch of Casino games in the "Casino Calamity" review

Pat has also done completely different videos of him running around local flea markets picking up stuff entitled Flea Market Madness, as well as looks at his expansive collection, coverage at CES 2010, Comic Con, and Magfest 9, and also a video of him... taking a trip to the Jersey Shore? Also, some stuff concerning a Mad Mario Ball...

Somewhat regularly posts on NintendoAge, a forum dedicated to collecting NES related items. Also did a video with The Spoony One where the two take down Highlander: Endgame, appeared on an episode of Spike TV's 1000 Ways to Die, and did a crossover with The Angry Video Game Nerd on Nintendo World Championships.
