AVGN needs to review Virtual Hydlide for the Sega Saturn!!
Alexander James
Jim the Knight\nKilled by bees
Amy Carter
You're not killed by nothing; the lantern dispels darkness traps (of course these are invisible but do not change places or anything so you can figure out where they are and avoid them). This is a common thing in games like these, where darkness hides unseen traps that light dispels, and I've played several. Even LoZ games have these, though they don't necessarily kill.
Andre The Giant
James, thank you for countless hours of entertainment. I was a fan from day one
Andy Elam
Jim the knight killed by bees
Argran
HAHA that ending though
Art On Pluto
play Doraemon on NES
Blood Shadow
Imagine a crossover between Hydlide and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, it would be the most hideous video game abomination ever !
Boromycin
Hydlide plot: Still a better love story than twilight.

I started playing Hydlide some time ago (with save states, obviously). I think I'm gonna use this video as a guide, because it's basically impossible without a guide.\n\nWhat the Nerd didn't mention is that you can't keep leveling up with the same enemies when you get strong enough (don't take it like you can really get any tough in this game, at least compared to the enemies), and staying on the water or the sand takes you life slowly too.

Anybody after Episode 161?
Charlie Coccia
At least LJN didn't make this turd.

And guys, think about it... Hydelide = Hyrule\nTHINK.
Crimson Wolf
play little ninja brothers for the nes for some bad password system and controls that change depending if you race or play the normal game

0:24\nI would love to see a review of Lord of the Sword.\nPlayed it as a kid and never could beat it. The problem was that it was an RPG with no way to save the game and no password system. You got two or three lives, I don't remember, but they functioned like continues and there was no way to tell how many you had or how many remained.\nMy SMS eventually just stopped working, as many of them did, and I wasn't ever able to.\nWhen I told other people about the game they didn't even believe it existed.\nAnyway, it wasn't the worst game ever but there is enough wrong with it that it could merit it's own video and I'd love to see AVGN do one for it. It could make up for never being able to finish it myself.

i think guitar guy should get his own little figurine
Dzoniplier
Cause of music i call it IndianaLide

Don't you know AVGN? If you enter dark areas without a light, you're likely to be eaten by a grue.
Forte Piano
New vid anyone?

You should check out Dragon Warrior for the NES. One of the first strategy rpg video game.
Glen Stradwick
Makes you wonder if James ever played Zork and is familiar with the concept of Grues - the whole \

Honestly, I didn't like the NES Zelda game. It was very hard and cryptic to play, and I felt no real satisfaction after having beat it. The first Zelda game I played is A Link to the Past, and that one definitely stands the test of time. It's no wonder the game is getting a sequel on 3DS.
Good Noodle
Episode 86, a game from 1986. Coincidence?
Grand Priest
And yet ... the fact *still* remains that Zelda ripped off Hydlide.\nZelda would NOT be around ... if it weren't for Hydlide.
Hemingway The Dog
The nerd should play virtual hydlide
Hokuto
You should play Super Hydlide and Virtual Hydlide!
IronOrePickaxe
I think the nerd should review Virtual Hydlide for the Sega Saturn.

Your mistaken sir I reached in a dogs bung hole and found my wedding ring......

My parents bought this game for me in 1990, so I'm more than familiar with it and I still have the manual somewhere. Okay, until your experience reaches a certain level, you are vulnerable to dying by tiring out just by walking. You have to have to take breaks and just sit there from time to time, until your life meter recovers. The game takes a lot of patience. It basically gave up on it and it took me years go give it a second try. Once I came back to it, I was able to appreciate it a little more. And though it still is far from my favorite game, I do like the nostalgia is brings me. I, too, had always thought it looked primitive for a 1989 game. But now I know why, and no wonder, it's from 1984. That explains the simplicity and the constant music theme.

All these years and i've missed that AVGN has a video on Hydlide. Either i've seen it once and promptly forgot about it, or blocked it from my memory. I only found this via TV Tropes, looking at \
Jordan Springer
3:26 anybody else think that comment was a little \
Joseph Still
The SAVE option actually does something other than just giving you a password. It does actually save the game, but the save is lost when you turn off the power. However, when you die, you can actually use the LOAD command to load the save without having to type the password, much like a savestate on an emulator.
Keith Eubanks
It's Jim the Knight.
Kilij
Well give this game a top hat and call it Mr Hydlide... Get it?
Kitsune Goddess
Came to rewatch after seeing Super/Virtual Hydlide.
Kristian
Holy crap, so I'm not the only one who thought that was Indiana Jones...
Laurelindo
I like how he plays the Zelda theme at the end, almost like he's trying to say \
Lemmy Koopa
I like how he leaves the Zelda music at the end to kinda clean everyone's palate.
Lord dragon
thumbs up if you came after watching the sequel
Luther Barrett
I had this one as a kid. I rarely played it and when I tried I always died very quickly and couldn't figure out what to do. It wasn't fun at all.
MP Reviews
Hydlide sounds like some sort of sequel to Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.
Mariah Lightfoot
wait... so does that mean Legend of Zelda is Hydlide done right?
Mars Carlisle
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.\n\n\n\nWait a minute... \n\n\n\nMr. Hyde\n\n\n\n\nHYDE\n\n\n\n\n\nMr. HYDLIDE!
Masa
The problem is that while the original 84's PC88 Hydlide was the pioneer for Zelda and Ys, this remake was made one year before those games came out and it did not improve enough on the original, original Ys on comparison is still a fantastic game because how natural the bump system is and it had a decent story.
Master Farr
When i first heard the music I thought of indianna jones
Meduckie Kieran
Projared's favourite game!
MegamanElric16

Michael Casey
Seems like someone seriously misspelled Hyrule XD
Michael Hayward
I thought of Indiana Jones straight away! Before it was mentioned. xD
Michael Ross

Mr. G
Nice American Movie reference @ 3:30

I think we're about due for an AVGN take on Super Hydlide and/or Virtual Hydlide.

He doesn't seem too angry. Hydlide is definitely not worth it.

Good lord I laughed really good when he was pronouncing the name of the game at the start.
Sekual Tyranosaur

7:38 Hey look the map is E.T's sprite from the Atari game XD
StylixDS
I don't get why there are always these PSA's peppered through some of the nerd videos about drugs. I love avgn but some of the anti drug messages just feel forced.
TEE VEE
Is anyone else watching this before super and virtual Hydlide

Hydlide... it sounds like a pretty awful name, like a disease or something. \
reda touati

rimsky82
The best part of the video is that the nerd uses dot matrix printer paper to write down his passwords. Sooooo classic.
rusoope
who else came back from ep 161?
sean hines
The name sounds like some sort of toxic chemical that produces noxious fumes...which in an ironic metaphoric sense it kinda is
silverxstar
But really, what you said got me thinking. Imagine this: back in the late 80's, there was a poor family. The youngest son was utterly obsessed with the NES, the only present he ever received. He liked Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt, but playing them over, over and *_over_* again was getting old. He became extremely excited upon hearing about Legend of Zelda at school, hearing his friends talking about this seemingly amazing action-adventure game. \nOne day, this little boy's family decided to go out. In the window of a store, he saw...the Legend of Zelda cartridges, merchandise, everything! He pointed at the window and pleaded his parents to \
