ACDCGAMER is a fairly popular YouTube and user who specializes in Super Mario 64 videos, and is famous for his Super Mario: Re-AMPed series, his Super Mario series, and more recently his Mario Shorts. Compared to other Mario 64 video makers such as MATTHEWGU4, Megaman765, and UltimaFalco (previously known as ShadowMario64, he is one of the oldest (although Mariobro3828 is older than him).
Super Mario 64 BloopersEdit
Super Mario 64 Bloopers is ACDCGAMER's first series, and is 5 episodes long. It has been well-received by many viewers, although some criticize it for its lack of originality, as it takes off quite a bit of material from Megaman765's bloopers. It is followed by Super Mario Re-AMPed. The first episode of this series is also ACDCGAMER's second most-viewed video on YouTube (the most viewed uploaded on his channel), with over 160,000 views as of April 7, 2009.
Super Mario Re-AMPedEdit
Super Mario Re-AMPed is a popular blooper series made by ACDCGAMER, each episode involving a series of bloopers made by Mario as well as having a plot as well. There are a total of 19 episodes as well as a Christmas Special released so far. It has won SideSmash's award for Best Bloopers, beating ShadowMario64's "Super Mario 64 ADVANCED Bloopers." Unfortunately, at the end of December 2008, 9 episodes were blocked by YouTube because of copyright claims, so he plans to upload all of the episodes onto Dailymotion sometime in the near future, with several episodes already uploaded. It is unknown about the future of the series.
Super Mario is an action/epic series made by ACDCGAMER, influenced by ShadowMario64's (Now UltimaFalco) "Super Mario RPG" series and MATTHEWGU4's "Mario and the Dark Killer" series, and uses many elements from the Metroid series. There are currently two chapters in the series, Corruption and Dark Omen. Corruption is completed, made up of 9 episodes, and Dark Omen was completed as of June 21, 2008, with 14 episodes (although it is 16 videos long, as Episode 9 is split into 3 parts). It is widely considered as one of, if not the best series he has made, and has greatly contributed to his success.
Corruption is the first chapter in the Super Mario series, and follows the story of Mario when a meteor hits Bob-Omb Battlefield, releasing Phazon and corrupting Mario. The Mario Bros., with the help of Samus, must then use this Phazon to drive out the strange Phazon entity that appears, known as Phazon Mario (although he was in fact Dark Samus), in order to save the Mushroom Kingdom.
Dark Omen is the next chapter in the Super Mario series, and is the sequel to Corruption. After a ship appears, an organization known as the Dark Army invades the kingdom, wanting to take it over for their leader, known as Rozen. Mario and Luigi then receive a message from a strange being, and is later revealed to be a Sage that guards the Mushroom Kingdom and the rest of the galaxy, along with 3 others, and they reveal that Rozen was a Sage, but he had a greed for power and was later banished by the other Sages, and later gets his revenge by capturing them and taking over many areas of the universe. Together, Mario, Luigi, Samus, (and later, Dark Samus, surprisingly) must save the 4 Sages, destroy Rozen, defeat the Dark Army, and to save the kingdom, if not the entire universe.
A trailer to Atonement was released as ACDCGAMER's real 100th video (although he uploaded something else as the 100th video), and was met with widespread acclaim from viewers. ACDCGAMER has done things in this video that he previously hasn't before to be up-to-par with other Super Mario 64 series, including having Mario's hat emblem removed (as with the other characters), the use of the famous green screen fight mechanism, and the addition of a new character, none other than Solid Snake from the Metal Gear series. It has been confirmed in his blog that it will be a direct sequel to Dark Omen, and that Solid Snake as well as another unknown character will have major roles in the series. Episode 1 was released to positive response from viewers despite its lack of action and large use of dialogue (in order to get the storyline going), and Episode 2 was released to mostly positive reviews as well, although it has received criticism for being too similar to the Dark Omen series, which MaxOfS2D especially points out. However, ACDCGAMER has responded to this by improving his video-making skills, and promises to make Episode 3 as well-done as possible.
Mario Shorts are a collection of short Super Mario 64 bloopers made by ACDCGAMER, the first being Luigi's Randomness. There are a total of 7 episodes so far (one being on MetaknightZX's collab) and it has become very popular, with 5 of his 6 episodes having at least 18,000 views. It is interesting to note that Episode 5, Mario and Luigi's Insane Dinner Argument, has been uploaded onto YouTube again by Machinima.com, and has gotten over 600,000 views as of April 7, 2009, making it by far ACDCGAMER's most viewed video ever on YouTube, despite it not being on his channel.
Started back in October 2009, ACDCGAMER started a podcast series - focusing mainly on video games - known as 'ACDCGAMER's Progcast,' now known today as 'AC/DC Gamecast.' He also has other people on the show; while he doesn't always record episodes with the same people, Chancer4ever, Danno10398, and MATTHEWGU4 have participated in nearly every episode, and can be seen as regulars on the show as a result.
ACDCGAMER's Super Mario: Re-AMPed series has been well received by viewers, and won SideSmash's award for "Best Bloopers." His Super Mario series has also been acclaimed; Corruption and Dark Omen have both been praised by viewers, the latter being hailed as ACDCGAMER's magnum opus. Dark Omen also won Iceonlava777's first "Best Machinima Ever" contest, in the Major League category.
