Angry Video Game Nerd Repaint in FSX

In my last blog, I described Tourettes Guy Repaint for the Boeing 747-400 in FSX. Now I have created a new Angry Video Game Nerd Repaint for the Boeing 737-800.

Here is my Boeing 737-800 in its Angry Video Game Nerd livery at the departure gate at Male Intl in the Maldives. This is the thumbnail that comes up in the aircraft selection menu in FSX. I created this new repaint because I thought the Angry Video Game Nerd deserves this sort of recognition, just like what I thought when I created my Tourettes Guy Repaint for my Boeing 747-400.

James Rolfe a.k.a. "Angry Video Game Nerd" (formerly Angry Nintendo Nerd) has been finding flaws with old video games consoles and games since 2004. I think some of his points are quite valid, like when he is reviewing the Sega CD and the Sega 32X and notes that they both have their own individual AC adapters as well as the Sega Genesis.

I'm sure we all agree it is crazy setting up a video game system which, in addition to its AC adapter, the hardware attached relies on its own AC adapter and you end up with three plugs for the game system, and you can't plug them in because your power strip's electrical sockets are lined up vertically so you can't plug in all three AC adapters because the transformers invade the free sockets.

And the fact that older games have labels on the side of the cartridge so you can choose which game without having to take the games out and see what label is on the front of the cartridge while the newer ones don't is just simply ridiculous too. I even agree with what he says about the Atari 5200 as well. To set it up, you have to plug the AC adapter and the RCA cable into some strange box and plug the Atari 5200 into that.

 When you plug the Atari 5200 into that, it causes sparks.

So anyways, I took off at Hong Kong Intl, since Angry Video Game Nerd said he'd "rather fly a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Hong" in his review on Top Gun for the NES.

He never said where to though. Fortunately I thought he deserves a reward so I flew to the tropical paradise North East of Australia known as the Philippines.

Here's what the plane looked like at 10,000 feet.

Along the way, I was able to get a few more good shots using my computer's screen print key. Here's one with the Philippines in the distance ahead of the aircraft.

As you can see, on the vertical stabilizer, you can see Angry Video Game Nerd's opinion on the Atari 5200 with the controller above the text, since its lack of function is the reason it wasn't any good. Below the text is the Atari 5200, since it fits onto the aircraft's vertical stabilizer better and is reminiscent of when Angry Video Game Nerd looks over the Atari 5200 and shouts "BECAUSE IT'S A PILE OF FUCKING SHIT!!!!"

And, just for the record, here's a shot of the aircraft flying off the Philippine coast with a beautiful Philippine sunset in the background.

Later that evening, I landed the plane at Clark Intl.

Here's the video.

You can download the repaint for yourself. Here's the download link:

Once again, I didn't think Surclaro or FS-Freeware would approve of the swear words on the fuselage, so I uploaded it to 4shared.
