One Year Anniversary! + E3 Part 4: How Many More Videos Are There?!

First off, I'd like to thank zonic94 for reminding me that today is my blog's one year anniversary!
Last year, I set out to prove to the Internet that Chris Bores was more than just an AVGN rip-off. He was a liar, a bad actor, a terrible writer, a fake gamer, and a douchebag.
I wanted to show that his videos had nothing that could be considered "entertainment".
61 followers and lots of support later, I'm glad to still be here picking apart The Bores. Despite the objections of some insane fanboys.

I'd like to thank the following people:
nodategamers: For inspiring me to make this blog, even if you actually like IG now.
FFL2and3rocks: For the Third-Rate Gamer series and his support.
DLAbaoaqu: For the I Can't Believe It's Not AVGN series and his support.
MatthewErich: For showing just how lazy Bores' videos are and his support.
St. Lizard: For his info and support.
Mike *****: For plugging this blog when he gets the chance and his support.
All my readers: Without you this wouldn't be as popular as it is now.

Thank you everyone.

Right now, it's time to continue through the muck of IG's E3 2010 videos. Hunker down people this is going to hurt.
Last time, The Bores was drooling over Lego Harry Potter while standing next to a Hagrid statue attempting a joke. Seriously, Lego Irate Gamer is not a joke. Nothing about it is a joke.
* Fun Fact: In the YouTube version of this video, Bores fixed Hermione's name.
Maybe Bores should do that from now on, upload his videos to GottGame, receive messages about his mistakes, and then try to fix them. Then again, the only other time he did that was Tekken 6 and that made it worse.
He also lied about being a fan of the F.E.A.R. series.
And now, the continuation.

Star Wars video:
- Bores briefly talks about Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. He notes that fans of the series might enjoy this. Is it any wonder why Bores steals? His own writing is barely grade-school.
- He also talks about The Old Republic. He sounded annoyed that despite covering it last year, they're still working on it. Hey genius, video games take time to develop. If you rush it you get a terrible game. You know, like ET on the Atari 2600. Oh, and he talks about the visuals. Next game.
- Bores moves on to The Force Unleashed II. "It picks up right where the first game left off." You play as Starkiller in the first game, you play as Starkiller in the second game. Of course it's going to pick up where the first one left off. Then he pads the video with the trailer.

Pac-Man video:
- This video starts with a montage of Bores looking at games that I'm actually interested in. Sonic 4 & Sonic Colors (with a picture of him standing next to a Sonic statue), Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (the aftermath of his ass-whooping, man that match is hilarious), and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (there's a weird cut where after the Castlevania footage, he's swinging a Wii-mote around. Lords of Shadow isn't coming to the Wii).
- What does Bores say about these games? Absolutely nothing. I have a feeling that SWAG covered all the games people actually want, and Bores was stuck with garbage. After this and the following two videos, my theory isn't too far off.
- "After a Vietnamese army invaded, it was time to call it a day." What kind of sense does that make? Were they even Vietnamese? I don't get it.
* Fun Fact: In Keith Apicary's E3 videos, he actually stood in their line hoping they were off to kill somebody. He's not a coward, he even made G4 entertaining (a very hard feat to pull off).

- Bores attends Namco's Pac-Man event, celebrating his 30th anniversary. He also shows off two new Pac-Man games. ... I'm overjoyed.
- He talks about Pac-Man Party. Some mini-games he found fun, others he found boring. That's all he says. Because this is what people want to see at E3, a Pac-Man party game. Guh.
- He also looks at Pac-Man Battle Royale, a 4-player competitive version of Pac-Man. Great, more games I could care less about. Yeah, it's Pac-Man he's an icon, but if I wanted to play Pac-Man I could play one of the MANY ports out there.
-- That's not all. We get a montage of Bores trying to win the game. He actually does get a victory, though I wonder how many attempts it took to get that shot. His win causes a forced reaction and I still don't care.
* Fun Fact: Pac-Man Battle Royale is an Arcade exclusive, and there are currently no plans to make a console version. Poor Namco, still thinking Arcades are successful in America.
- The rest of the video is Bores taping this unfunny, 3D Pac-Man cartoon. Even IG's stupid fans called foul on this horrendous cartoon, and considering they're his fans that's saying a lot.

Yoostar 2
- I saw this title and had no idea what it was. A quick Wikipedia search told me it was computer-program where you can upload your videos to Yoostar's site. It was initially released in Bloomingdale's, that's a good sign right there. The sequel is expanding to the PS3 and 360. I'm going to laugh when I walk into a GameStop or Best Buy and see a ton of copies still on the shelf.
- The video starts with an interview, god damn it. Bores is talking to Shawn, oh hey he actually gave his name.
-- He describes Yoostar as "movie karaoke", you can put yourself into any of your favorite movie scenes. Okay, on paper it sounds interesting. Let's see how it's executed.
- Shawn performs the scene from The Terminator where the T-800 walks into the police station looking for Sarah Conner. ... And just as I thought, it looks like something that will be fun ONCE. I don't see the incentive in playing this more than once, even Achievement Whores would get bored.
- Bores tries it himself and does the same exact scene. Adding Arnold Schwarzenegger to the list of "people Chris Bores can't impersonate".
-- He also gets 8000 points for his performance. I saw some people cry foul on this, but I can see how he got it. The Terminator has no emotion, and Chris Bores can't show emotion outside of monotone. It makes sense.
- IG continues the interview, marveling over the technology. It doesn't look any different from a green screen, and you use those all the time.
-- Shawn advertises the studios they signed for and some of the movies you can play with. You know, if I wanted to play something related to The Terminator I wouldn't want to just say his lines. I want to kill the cops & thugs, I want to chase Sarah Conner, I want to turn good and save John Conner, I want to fight the T-1000.

- Turns out he only had two questions, because IG moves onto a later event with Leonard Nimoy testing out Yoostar 2. However, Nimoy does the exact same scene. Couldn't this demo have any other scenes for people to try out?
- This is followed by a "private" press conference with Nimoy and Zoe Saldana. You know, Uhara from the 2009 film. I still don't care.
-- Also, it's not a private conference if we can see it! To, once again, quote Inigo Montoya "You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means."
- So the rest of the video is just this boring conference promoting Yoostar 2, with shots of Bores standing there cut into it. Skipping to the end, Bores remarks that it was awesome seeing them.

It doesn't matter how many Star Trek cast members endorse your game, I will NEVER buy it. It looks like a waste of money.

Naughty Bear
* Fun Fact: Naughty Bear came out last week. So once again, Bores looks at a video game that came out within a month of E3. Reviews are mixed and honestly it doesn't look fun, it just looks sad (I like Teddy Bears, sue me).
- After a montage of footage, we get another interview. Bores remarks that it doesn't look like a kids game and calls it "Care Bears on Steroids", no it looks more like the Gummi Bears on meth. His first question is "What is the intended audience for this game?"
... SWAG don't bring Bores to E3 anymore, otherwise he'll ask stupid questions like that. "I can tell it's not a kid's game, so who's the target audience?" Use your brain Chris.
-- Oh, and the representative is just "Naughty Bear Rep". No names this time? I guess Shawn really wanted people to know about Yoostar 2.
- Bores then asks about the weapons and the consoles it's on. Video done, I'm out!

Actually, I just want to mention that the YouTube ratings show far too many "likes" and very little "dislikes" for the E3 videos. It isn't like his Irate Gamer videos where it shows A LOT of dislikes (sometimes equal). I don't know, I just find it bothersome.

Until next time.

  1. It wasn't a vietnam army, it was North Korean army, if he was referring to homefront with all the men marching in unison. Also, spoony's one coverage is better then Irate gamer from what I'm hearing from you. On, a totally unrelated not though his new videos are a master piece of green screening, and actually you know acting <.<.

  2. Good lord those videos were terrible. I watched them on y2b2010's channel so to avoid giving Bores views. Oh and happy anniversary.

  3. "Actually, I just want to mention that the YouTube ratings show far too many "likes" and very little "dislikes" for the E3 videos."

    I'm not really surprised actually. The E3 videos are idiotic and pointless, but also inoffensive. So I guess all the fans simply thumb up the video and wait for the next, instead of looking for a better E3 coverage.

    Furthermore, haters can watch them on y2b2010's channel before they're uploaded on his channel, and I don't think they'd want to watch them a second time. Not to mention, that'd give Bores more views, like nuclearneo577 said.

    Happy blogday by the way. :)

  4. You're welcome my friend! :)
    Anyway, yeah these E3 videos are just a chore to watch, even when watching them from y2b2010's channel. Already E3 is starting to become old news and yet Bores is still uploading this shit as slow as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I knew Naughty Bear was a flunk from the beginning. As I said before it's just a rip-off of the Tediz from Conker. As for Yoostar, nothing more than a hand me down game taking advantage of the "new" technology. Honestly, have these people ever heard of Eyetoy? This crap has been done before. Nothing really new. As for Bores, he should never go to E3 ever again. Give those tickets to Kwing instead.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Good God Bores really thinks that Yoostar 2 is acctually going to be good? Naught Bear might have been good if it didn't try to act like a Manhunt knockoff and stolen the killer bears from Conker. Anyway Happy Anniversary Dan!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thank you everybody. The more people that know he's a fake the better.

    @A guy from France
    That's a good point. The haters have already seen the videos, and the only other audience Bores has are YouTube Proles unaware of actual gaming sites.

    I remember reading a comment from his mommy saying "We don't get E3 coverage here." You have the Internet, there's coverage there, that's a horrible defense.

    @digiharrisom
    The only difference I can think of is that Kinect isn't webcam quality, you can actually use the Eyetoy as a webcam.

    Still, it's been done.

  8. Happy anniversary, Daniel.

    Some friendly advice for you: Try not to speak for all the "Family Guy" fans next time. In your "Retro Redux" recap for "Jaws", you said, and I quote: "It’s no wonder fans of Family Guy love this show, it holds their attention spans long enough to laugh at some stupid reference."

    The way you said that, you made it out to seem like EVERY "Family Guy" fan is a fan of the Irate Gamer. In actuality, however, not ALL FG fans like the Irate Gamer. And I'm pretty sure there are even Irate Gamer fans that aren't fans of FG.

    Don't take this the wrong way, I'm not saying you don't have the right to dislike "Family Guy", just be a bit more careful next time with what you say.

  9. As a military buff I got really pissed off when Chris referred to the North Koreans as Vietnamese, heck they EVEN HAD THE NORTH KOREAN FLAG with them (I'm also a geographer, sue me).

    In fact it reminded me when Chris referred to the bi-planes as 'Nazis' in his Odyssey review, another time he really irritated me, God I'd hate to see him review Wolfenstein 3d...

    P.S Sorry about the repost I just wanted to say congrats on the one year anniversary.

  12. This just in:

    The AVGN has released a new video. This time on something that I most certainly can relate to: Game glitches. And once again, the nerd doesn't disappoint. Some I knew about, some I didn't.

    I must also mention that lately, the nerd seems to be taking subtle jabs at the Irate Gamer. In this video, the nerd says nothing but good things about SMB2USA.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Happy One Year Anniversary!

    BTW, Bores's video about the remake of the second Lufia game is up. At least he bothered to introduce the Natsume representative this time.

    @zonic94
    Not just Bores; also the rest of GottGame.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Alright, regardless of how much anyone adores Rolfe/Hates Bores, that entire "Glitch Goblin" thing was just weak.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @HH Kelevra


    Very very true but hey at least the episode itself was pretty cool. I gonna have nightmares about glitch Clubber Lang. Thats what you get for watching it at 2 in the morning

    ReplyDelete
  16. Too bad he didn't talked about Pokemon glitches.There are enough glitches in those games to make an entire series about it.
    And yes,the Glitch Goblin was annoying as hell,when it first showed up I thought I was watching an IG episode.At least he is not that much in the review

    ReplyDelete
  17. Let's not jump to conclusions. I'm sure there's a good reason we only saw Nerdy Turd once. Even really good shows and really funny people have bad ideas once in a while.

    About Force Unleashed, I'm just curious as to whether you've played that, Batdan.

  19. "Yes, because it certainly had nothing to do with his new "mugging = humor" shtick, or that a lot of the glitches he mentioned was already known by most any gamer who cares. Just the annoying green goblin. U-huh."

    I'm not even sure where to start responding to this. Maybe I meant the whole video was a bad idea.

    Honestly, I don't give a shit about the AVGN. He's always been the vanilla of online game reviewers to me. I haven't watched a new video of his in forever. It just bugs me when somebody looks at one bad thing somebody's done and the first thing they think is "Well, that's it. He'll never come back from that."

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'd have to say the Nerd's latest video is probably his weakest in a long time. It's still a million times better than anything Bores puts out but judged as a Nerd video, it wasn't that great. The Glitch Gremlin is pretty bad, and it was cliched to make him have the high pitched leprechaun voice.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I liked the whole episode, it was funny and informative, which is pretty much the point of the AVGN. Sure some don't like the glitch gremlin but If you think about it it's a throwback to those old WWII cartoons about Gremlins in aeroplanes like "Gremlin's from the Kremlin".

    At any rate James is pretty good at juggling his video style, sometimes it's a 'normal' no-frills, sit in front of the camera angry review. Then next time it's a cinematic experience with SFX, cameos and plot, which is what James really enjoys doing. After all he is a budding film director/producer so he wants to explore what he can do.

    Ultimately whatever the style he chooses for an episode the Nerd will still swear and drink beer, sometimes more, sometimes less, but nevertheless the core characteristics of the nerd remain.

    ReplyDelete
  22. congratulations Dan on one year of bashing bores!

    And while were on the subject, While I DID enjoy AVGN's new video, I felt it was a little short, and the goblin was agrivatting as hell.

    Well, other than that, I am sure you will continue to bash Irate very well.
    See you next time!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Happy Anniversary!

    I haven't seen the latest Nerd episode, but the troll seemed annoying in the trailer. We'll see.

    I would like AVGN to stop while he is still pretty much on top of his game IMO. I wouldn't like to see him becoming stale and boring as NC (yeah, it has happened, top 11 coolest cliches was awesome, but the regular eps have been mostly missing their target). Still I think that Bores would be first to be on that list, followed by a lot of Channel Awesome contributors. And the anger seems forced because it is, because idiots who have no idea what the show is about keep demanding James to bring back the anger. And if they are not satisfied they go and watch NC17.

    Nevertheless, I still enjoy most of Avgns videos.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Eh, he's been going downhill for a while now. If it keeps on like this I think he should probably call it wraps by episode 100.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I thought that the new AVGN was pretty good. Now if he only he had done Pokemon glitches.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @HH Kelevra :

    I think that his last episode will be the one when he reviews E.T.Though I don't think he is going downhill.Yeah,he is not as good as he used to be,but I find his 5 latest episodes pretty good.With that said,I have to admit that 2009 was his worst year,the only good review I can think of is Plumbers Don't Wear Ties,and maybe Winter Games.

    @ nuclearneo577

    Yeah,the Pokemon games are filled with glitches,especially the 1st generation.I don't know why he decided to put glitches of new games and not even talk about Pokemon

    By the way,out of 43 comments (44 with this one) only 8 are about the IG.Whoa

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh yeah I forgot.

    HAPPY ANIVERSARY BatDan!

  29. I also have to say I disagreed with his Indiana Jones 4 not being all that bad. He made some ok points but seriously that movie was awful. I mean it was Star Wars Prequel bad. I tried to watch it again a few weeks back and had to shut it off. I now pretend it doesn't exist. Actually I take it back, I think it's actually worse than the SW Prequels, I can at least sit through those, (barely with Phantom Menace though).

    ReplyDelete
  30. That's exactly what I was saying, Dan. Are people really so eager to rip something apart that one bad installment is all it takes for the "ruined forever" claims to start flying? There wasn't even one particular moment of IG where I started hating him, it just accrued over time.

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Dave
    People on the Internet are beyond picky.

    Bores has earned his hate. He bashed classic games, he censored criticism, he stole from other reviewers, and he insulted a hobby near & dear to thousands of people.

    The only other reviewer that has done this is Silent Rob.

    ReplyDelete
  32. "People on the Internet are beyond picky."

    I know that, I can be a nitpicker myself. But it just illustrates to me how backstabbing we as a race can be when people devote all this time and affection for something, then one inferior installment comes out and they immediately turn on it.

    I for one hated this cartoon called The Life and Times of Juniper Lee. But I didn't write it off after one episode, I watched three or four thinking I just came in during a slump. And then near the end of the next season I figured I'd give it another chance as it had been a while and if they were as dedicated to the characters and their interplay as it seemed maybe she'd have grown out of most of her whininess. The show still sucked, but I tried to be fair.

  34. Dont bother with the guy Mike. All he's gonna do is end up twisting your words again in some way to make you and James look bad. Most of the people here dont know why he's still insisting on staying if he refuses to stay on topic about IG and try to bring in the Nerd or TGWTG in some way (TGWTH mainly because batdan has quoted him a few times and such and he hates it which further brings question into why he stays and makes it clear he wants nothing more than to troll. Has to be the only reason.)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Maybe the lack of dislikes is due to most sane people not caring about E3 videos so long after the shows ended.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hey, Mike!
    I have a question.
    Should James Rolfe review Zombies Ate My Neighbors as himself? Being a horror movie buff, James must really enjoy this game as it is a homage and a parody of horror films in the past, especially those Zombie ones. :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, *that's* why there are so many comments...

    Keep up the sterling effort Dan, this blog is great fun! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Clark
    That's a good point. Everyone that cares for E3 has burned out, nobody is really looking for E3 coverage right now. Bores fails for being late to the party.

    ReplyDelete
  39. @AngrySun86

    I don't know if he should.I mean,the HVGN already did a review of it,and he made a good job.Besides,it would be a reason to call James a rip-off for the insane IG fanboys.Remember what happened with the Indiana Jones review?

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Héctor

    Although I obviously liked HVGN's review of ZAMN, there was only one thing that I kinda didn't understand: What was the point of bringing up "River City Ransom"? Was he trying to say that the only way you'll be able to keep everything you've accumulated would be if the passwords were as long as the ones in that game, but since they aren't in ZAMN, you start off with the bare essentials?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Its interesting that Mike said that the ChopTop scene was a reference to IG, because JoeyDrunko's "Shit Load of Fuck" video did the same thing. What a coincidence.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "Again, you're misunderstanding what I said. Let me be more clear. I said "We don't care what you think. There's going to be more characters. Get over it."

    It's loud and clear. There are fans who don't like guest characters. You "get it". You don't care that fans don't like guest characters and you'll continue making guest characters because (insert reason here). Therefore, in that particular instance, you don't care what the fans think (which is not liking guest characters). Is what I said incorrect?

    ReplyDelete
  43. "I gave it a little while, realized it wouldn't get better, then moved on. I don't feel like I'm being fair to something if I base my entire opinion on the part where they're still explaining everything."

    So you gave a grace period for something that sucked? Good for you. Few fans have the patience for that. Which brings us to the original point of contention... if you thought you were merely nitpicking when you gave this show another chance, you'll see that you really weren't. It just sucked.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Gah how many more E3 videos is he going to do?
    Newsflash Bores, E3 ended three weeks ago. Your coverage isn't anything new.

    Another reason why GottGame isn't respected. They're beyond slow.

    ReplyDelete
  45. "So it's Nostalgia Filter that made you like that particular character? Well, fine. There's no accounting for taste."

    Jesus Tapdancing Christ why must you feel you need to respond to EVERY little thing? I was just stating my opinion that I liked him was all. No need for you to be a douche just because I did. Geez you are beyond rude. If you get some sort of wierd jollies being a major asshole then you need to seek help. *awaits inveitable response because it WILL happen*

  47. "Actually, the only time I can think of where we took a jab at the IG in an AVGN video was when I was ChopTop and said "I want to cut you open, get inside of you and become you"."

    That kind of backfired, didn't it? From what I recall, a lot of AVGN fans misconstrued that skit as AVGN giving them the middle finger ("fuck the fans" and all that), which led to them going all butthurt about it. As per usual, you blocked the ones who pointed these things out and deleted their comments post-haste.

    ReplyDelete
  48. BatDan,I don't think you should made more recaps of his E3 videos.They're just so boring that there is nothing interesting to say about them.But then again the guy isn't doing anything interesting so...How about that post about recommended reviewers that you promised a time ago?

    ReplyDelete
  49. He just released ANOTHER E3 video, I'm beginning to get deja vu of the AVGN's Pong video.

  50. I agree with Héctor, there is nothing interesting to say about the last videos. He doesn't even talk about the games now.

  57. Looking at the upcoming videos. I think it might be a good idea to wait until ALL the E3 videos are out before writing up a post about it.

    Hmm, what's the next Redux Recap going to be *looks* Ah, Smackdown vs. Raw 08. I'll also add mini-recaps of his Top Ten Summer Movies List and "Rice Krispenese". Ugh, that video.

    Ignore him dude. He's just using the tatics of Logical fallacy and Non-Sequitur. Just trying to rattle your cage and everyone elses for shits and giggles while throwing out his own views on things. Lets just do what he should be doing and ignore something/someone we clearly dont like.

  63. BatDan, speaking of the Krispanese...

    isnt that he took a little jab agaisnt IG?

    at least, that's how i always saw it.

  64. Am I the only one who finds it odd that our little trolls name is anonymous(!!!)4488(!!!) as in some other obvious AVGN rip-off who is so butt-hurt that he'd kiss Bores ass just to make fun out of AVGN and has a horrible habit of replying to EVERY negative criticism you write in his side? Not to mention the fact that he has the exact same numbers in his name. Just saying...
    P.S. Congrats, Dan :) Been reading your blog for a while - great stuff.

    I think so too Rick. I guess a***a**e*4488 feels so butthurt about this that he had to apply as anonymous, rather than his real blogspot account.

    ReplyDelete
  66. @Raccoonman900 Yes! Finally someone has spotted that too! But then again, someone can act as him, but I remember seeing this guy posting his sh*t on TGWTG forums and his writing style was the exact same! (He'd also feverishly answer to every and I mean every sentence that had something against him. Not to mention the fact that every time someone would flat out accuse him of being an AVGN rip-off he'd go bananas and start writing shit about James) Obvious troll is obvious, no?

    Yes. He is a complete troll. I bet he is going to respond idiotically soon.

  69. If that's case then why is he a bit obvious with the number and why should he care about Bores.

    @BatDan

    In his WWE review, Bores thinks people are stupid enough not to distinguish him from the crowd. And what's so special about appearing as a spectator? It's like those kids that appear in front of a news report and say "Hi!" to the camera.

    BTW, just asking, what about the final Contra video? That's not on your plans?

    ReplyDelete
  70. First off, belated congratulations on one year of blogging. Here's to another year of... stuff. Um... yeah, that's all I got. Sorry.

    Second off, it confounds me that GottNoGame is still releasing E3 videos long after the event has come and gone. For fuck's sake, E3 has been done to death by everyone and their pet duck-billed platypuses. Shouldn't these guys be a bit more organized and punctual in their updates? No wonder they hired Bores; they practically operate the same way.

    @polo_sc83
    Bores didn't appear in any news reports to say "Hi!" to the camera because any news with Bores on it was immediately shelved indefinitely due to not being newsworthy. Hence, the need to add such footage to the end of the video that has nothing to do with the video game in question. (Yes, it's at a wrestling show but from EIGHT YEARS PRIOR. That makes sense if he were reviewing a wrestling game from THAT era... oh wait, why did I bother? Nothing makes sense with The Bores.)

    Also, Bores released the WWE review in between the two Contra videos. My guess is BatDan's going through the videos in order of release, hence why the next recap is on the WWE video as opposed to the final part of Contra.

    ReplyDelete
  71. You are correct. The final Contra recap will come after the WWE SvsR recap.

    I would do research for this recap, to see if Bores made any in-jokes that someone who isn't a fan wouldn't get. But from what I can tell he didn't make any references.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Lots of Junior Detectives around here. :D First I was Chris Bores, now I'm... oh, dare I say his name and actually have him come here... LOL. Private dicks indeed.

    You want to permanently shut me down? It's fairly simple. Do what you did with the "Con"test Bores had. Have IG get more thumbs down and up. Humiliate him utterly. I'd swear you won't hear a peep from me if you're able to do that. Why? Because I can't possibly say that you people suck at what you do at that point. Right now, though, you guys are fair game.

    If I'm really "him", why censor "my" name? "I'm" already here, by your logic! Go ahead. Say his name. Or say "my" name. Whatever. I won't, but it's a good dare, methinks. ^_^

  77. Dear Anon,
    Please stop it. You've done nothing but spam.

    Yes these guys need to work on their arguments but you know whta? At least I don't create an account here just to call someone a fag for liking the AGVN.

    They don't call you a fag if you like the IG. They only do that when you do that. You are clearly immature and need help.

    Now for the guides:

    First off, most people use guides, it's a fact. In fact, many people who make guides used guides. Some of the legendary stuff like how to get the ultimate weapon in Silent Hill is literally impossible without a guide. Or almost. The people who can do that, kudos.

    Secondly, the AVGN only used the Game Genie once. Exactly once. How many times does IG use it? Everytime he plays.

    Thirdly, you claim that they have badly supported arguments. Your argument is: "Durr. If you like any reviewer, you're a fag and if you use game guides, you're a noob and a scrub who should kill themselves durrr."

    One more thing about guides. Many gamers only use a guide when they're stuck in an area and need to get through quickly and then never touch the guide again for hours or use a map.

    So in conclusion, stop. You're not good, you're a hateful loser and please get off.

    Wrong on both counts, I'm afraid. ;) Try again, chuckles. Oh, and it's "every time". You're welcome.

  80. We shouldn't have to ask you to. Calling someone a cocksucking douchebag just because it's not up to your standards is wrong. Didn't you ever learn that?

    And what do you mean I'm wrong about the Genie? You said it yourself before, definitely the IG using it all the time.

    And it's kind of funny that for a guy who hates this guy, you spend a lot of time thinking about him.

  81. Oh yeah, one more thing? Why exactly are we fighting anyway? You both agree that the Irate Gamer sucks. Why are you guys doing this?

  82. Look at his website. Either he doesn't update frequently enough, or he has no idea what "exclusive" means.

    I also like the fact that he doesn't link to his own page on GottGame.

  84. "And what do you mean I'm wrong about the Genie? You said it yourself before, definitely the IG using it all the time."

    He can't use it all the time. Also, AVGN used the Game Genie more than once.

    "And it's kind of funny that for a guy who hates this guy, you spend a lot of time thinking about him."

    Huh. From a guy who spends time in an "Irate Gamer Sucks" site, I'll take that comment with a grain of salt.

    "Oh yeah, one more thing? Why exactly are we fighting anyway? You both agree that the Irate Gamer sucks. Why are you guys doing this?"

    The Joker: Let's wind the clocks back a year. These cops and lawyers wouldn't dare cross any of you. I mean, what happened? Did, did your balls drop off?

    Oh, let me count the ways. Chris Bores is a partner, with partner privileges to end channels that are critical of him. He's getting more likes than dislikes. The end of Archfiend basically shows that YouTube is all about people like the Bores. Where's the Irate Hater army when you need them? Why is MatthewErich going Emo in his second to last video? I mean, seriously, who the fuck cares if AVGN says that IJ4 is tolerable, LOL? Is Gooligymoo an Irate Hater, or an AVGN hater? Why are most YouTube haters dropping into ignominy? In fact, a lot of Bores haters tend to own themselves more often than, like with Silent Rob and Armake21. What's your next great feat? Giving Chris Bores a million subscribers? LMAO. It may sound harsh, but to be honest, you guys are kind of failing more than Bores is, and in terms of lulz, that's not a good sign.

  85. "We shouldn't have to ask you to. Calling someone a cocksucking douchebag just because it's not up to your standards is wrong. Didn't you ever learn that?"

    Uuuuh... you call Irate Gamer a "cocksucking douchebag" (more or less) because he's not up to anyone's standards, so why can't I do the same to you guys? (FYI, I didn't literally call anybody a cocksucking douchebag).

    ReplyDelete
  86. So you don't have to be nasty about it.

    Anyway, I really think you're taking this too far.

    Please forget about the Gamer. He's clearly not doing any favors to you and really, the best bet is to ignore him, with maybe one video or two making fun of him. The less attention you draw, the less views he'll get.

    So you're attacking this blog because it's not actually succeeding in getting Bores to admit he's a thief and disappear from the internet? Maybe it just shows how stupid his antifandom is but hell if I thought we were actually serious about thinking a personal blog like this would do it.

    I just come here because I think it's hilarious the way Bores tries to pretend he's a gamer and it's kind of funny to read the systematic explanations of how he isn't. In a way I don't really want him to stop. It's great fun watching him run his mouth about videogames he never even thought about playing til James hit it big, while people actually in the know just laugh and shake their heads at him. He ain't the first dishonest person who's ever enjoyed success. And if we really wanted him gone, we'd get on with our lives and ignore him.

    And armake21 was always an asshead.

  89. Thanks Dave.
    Plus we wouldn't have great parodies from FFL2and3rocks and IrritatedGamer
    I would say doctorkickles as well but...

    Plus, Bores only earns PENNIES compared to other partners like nigahiga.

    Again, the objective isn't to get rid of Bores. It's to educate people on why he's a dishonest douche.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Honestly I watched Bores before the AVGN and I liked him then (Heck I even defended him from the haters once.) But then I looked up the AVGN and not only was he 10 times better but all those claims I saw people say of him ripping James off at the time came full circle after checking the dates. After that I never did like the guy much again til I relized his videos had that "Its so bad its good" air around them so I stayed subbed for abit until the second HOVG where he pretty much not only got his facts wrong (again)but was proven that his so called "Exclusive Footage you wont find anywhere else on the internet." Turned out to be nothing but a joke of a claim. So I unsubbed and thank goodness I did. After his triple review I felt he just didnt care anymore. I mean really? You play a game for an hour and you think thats enough to justify a review (In certain cases it is but for brutal legend noooooooo.)? Or the fact that even despite revising his Tekken 6 review it still sucked because he showed the first time he didnt even care to look around the menu and explore what you could find and just played the first thing that seemed to have gameplay and complaining about the voices when in fact the characters speak their languages of their birthplaces (which I thought was a nice touch personally.) Then TMNT: Reshelled which.....well you all know about that so I'll leave iy alone. But bottomline is that while he acually had a nice flavor going on at a time he has quickly sold himself out for the almighty Dollar. Now it doesnt seem he even tries anymore

    I never said that Bores appeared on a news report. I was just comparing his behavior which was similar to those people that wave at the camera and act like whores because they appeared on TV.

    But probably I'm wrong on that statement, too, since he was using the video more likely to show off that he's a wrestling fan.

    @Shaolin Dave
    That is if any reviewer gives a shit about the game or Bores. Besides, how would a game based on an "irate" reviewer sound to them like a good concept?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Is it just me or did Irate like lose 10 000 subscriptions over the past month?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Why would anyone want to make a game based on an "irate" reviewer? Makes about as much sense as making a game based on an "angry" nerd... oh wait.

    @polo_sc83
    I wasn't implying that you did. I'm just saying that if a news crew filmed Bores somewhere acting like an idiot, the entire piece would be shelved and deemed not to be newsworthy.

    ReplyDelete
  97. The difference with the "Irate Gamer Game" is that they're actually trying to sell it.
    All the AVGN fan games are non-profit and made for fun.

    When the Irate Gamer Game website was still up, they advertised it as a PC and Xbox 360 game.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Actually the site is still up, although its much more harder to find though google....

  99. Holy crap. You know how Bores is mostly doing shitty games that no one gives a shit about? Now he did a really good looking game, Castlevania Harmony of Despair! Why the f*ck did SWAG make Bores do it like it's crap? What is wrong with him!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  100. I just can't believe he said Harmony of Despair was a throwback to the 8-Bit Games.

    The only thing that can be considered a throwback is Alucard, and his appearance is vastly different.

    God Bores is an idiot.

  101. @BatDan

    I know. I just hope he doesn't "review" The King Of Fighters XIII. He would probably say that the team mode came from Tekken, oh wait he thought that Tekken force was the main game so never mind. Again, that would mean that SWAG thinks that it's crap.

    *Off topic*

    Do you look froward to Harmony of Despair?

  102. Why did we need two videos covering the same game, especially when the second video adds nothing? I don't get it. Isn't Swag's video enough?
