AVGN Vol. 7 Includes Expensive Coaster Disguised As Worthwhile DVD

Uploading today's DM video now as we speak... but I just want to talk about the contents of the latest AVGN DVD if you don't mind. (There's also a Board James DVD out there for interested parties, but I'm not going to dwell into that because it's the first one.)

First off, here's a content listing of the seventh volume of AVGN (copied and pasted from the Cinemassacre website almost verbatim)

NOTE: The image quality varies on the Top 10 videos, because all the different clips were shot on different codecs over the years. When you mix different codecs in the same video, some of them need to be compromised.

Now I can understand the need to fill content on a DVD and seven episodes of AVGN is somewhat paltry content, but I have to question the included content on the DVD, specifically the inclusion of the Top 10s. I'm not going to complain about the inclusion of the panels because those might be worthwhile additions and they're fairly harmless, but why do we need an ENTIRE DVD of Top 10 Nerd Clips, especially since these things are so obviously lazily put together for the sake of getting content on site? I feel like this is such an unnecessary addition and the package would have been fine with just the two first DVDs. Who cares if fans cry foul? They know you've been lacking in content last year due to the movie and the truly supportive ones won't mind one less DVD in a set as long as the rest of the content was quality stuff. This third DVD is an obvious coffee coaster if there ever was one.

Oh, and on a final note, Jimmy...
