-Shade tripping AVGN
Shade started down his path when The Nerd refused to review tje game, Adventure for the Atari 2600. Alcoholism struck, then a slow descent into madness.

When The Nerd was out buying beer at Costco, Shade broke in and trapped the Nerd's game room with tripwires, tazer shockwaves, and copies of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Eventually, Shade grew impatient and tripped the Nerd by hand, and forced him to review Adventure.
