Water levels. That's what I was thinking was missing as I died over and over and over again playing the original Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures. FreakZone Games, creator of MANOS: The Hands of Fate and purveyor of games meant to harden the heart and break the spirit, is back to ensure no controller or keyboard is left intact with AVGN II: ASSimilation. Coming this Winter, it promises new moves and actions, letting the player wall slide, glide, and punch through things using the Power Glove. It'll also plumb more of the depths of Angry Video Game Nerd lore, branching into Board James territory with the appearance of Mr Bucket (with a minor name change). What else has FreakZone Games found to bring players right to the brink of tv-smashing rage? We'll all know before long.

For more information on AVGN II: ASSimilation, you can head to the developer's site or follow them on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
