Redux Recap: *insert WWE reference here*

I’m going to look at IG’s second longest Neo video, and that’s saying a lot because this one is only five and a half minutes.

WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 (Wii). I’ve made it no secret that I’m not a wrestling fan. I didn’t grow up with it and from what I hear it’s not worth watching these days.
So if there’s any in-jokes I don’t catch, I apologize in advance.

Title: Again I hate to be nitpicky about the title but I can’t let this go. He wrote the game as “wwe SMACKDOWN vs. RAW 2008”. First of all, WWE needs to be capitalized since it’s an acronym. Second, why are SmackDown and Raw in big capital letters?
Of course, I’m asking the same guy that titled one video “Sonic Unleashed: The Hedgehog”. Is it that hard to title your videos?

Theme: This is the first video to introduce the IG Neo theme song. It’s just a stock track from Digital Juice, like all his other music.

0:22 - 0:45: IG announces the game he’s reviewing, then holds it up while doing narration. I still don’t get why he narrates over footage of himself, it would be like if a reporter was giving the news over footage of himself; and you see him moving around.
Also, his face looks screwed up. Since when did puffed up cheeks symbolize anger?

He mentions that he heard the Wii version of Smackdown vs. Raw was scaled back from the PS3 and 360 versions, tempting him to put it into his “game shredder”. Yes, your trusty “paper shredder” that you’ve only used once before and will never use after this video. Also, everyone knows the Wii isn’t as powerful as 360 & PS3, this is common knowledge. By whining about this it shows you still don’t know what you’re talking about.

He also tries to be intimidating yelling “Don’t think I’ll do it, cause I will!” Please, you’re about as intimidating as an 11 year old kid leaving death threats.

0:46 - 1:07: So the review starts with Bores complaining about the roster. Whining that all the wrestlers he knows of are locked and by the time he unlocks some he’ll be sick of playing. It’s called an incentive to play, if everything is unlocked from the start then it’s boring *looks at the last few Guitar Hero titles*

1:08 - 1:41: At first I didn’t want to do this video, I felt it didn’t have enough to debunk or make fun of. I was wrong.
Bores starts drooling over the entrances. Praising the game for being well-done, noting how the introductions are important to the game and it took THQ a long time to get them right.

I’m sorry, but weren’t there wrestling intros in games back on the Playstation and Nintendo 64? These aren’t new to Smackdown vs. Raw 2008, in fact there’s a reason it’s called “2008” because the series is annual, it’s like Madden. I doubt 2008 is when they finally decided to start adding intros.

And to the wrestling fans that read my blog, are intros really that important? Bores describes them as one of the most important things in a match, but all I see is the wrestler walking. He’s just walking and accepting his praise or hate. How the hell is this important?

1:42 - 1:53: Bores praises the gameplay, saying it’s easy to control. He brings up how he heard others had issues with the controls, but after 20 hours of playing he hasn’t had problems.
Holy shit, Bores played a game for more than 3 hours! That has to be a record.

1:54 - 2:04: He also remarks how the game has fast load times, prompting a gag where he tries to say something but is interrupted by a loading screen.
*flat as possible* Wow, that joke hasn’t been done before. You are such a wealth of humor Irate Gamer.
Seriously, even when Yahtzee did it in his Bionic Commando (2009) review it wasn’t funny. Okay it was a little funny because he used alcohol to represent the loading…

2:05 - 2:42: “Well I do find this game enjoyable, there are few things that pissed me off!” Wrong! You’re doing the review backwards, say your real opinion at the end after giving your thoughts.
So Bores complains that there’s a lack of match options. Holy crap, a problem that can be qualified as an actual complaint? There has to be a catch.
Bores starts asking about the cage matches, Hell in the Cell, table matches, and buried alive matches. They can’t put every single type of match in the game, there’s something called “technical limitations” that you have to consider.

Then he stars complaining that the Hardcore Matches aren’t hardcore, only giving the players a few chairs and he couldn’t break the announcers table. Can anyone confirm that this happens in the 360 and PS3 versions? If it doesn’t then it’s not worth complaining about. If it does then it’s still not worth complaining about.

2:43 - 3:13: Bores tests out the “create-a-character” mode and creates “Irate G”. “Wow, it’s like looking in a mirror” Actually the in-game you doesn’t look as retarded.
*woo woo woo woo* Ah crap the ego alarm went off again.

3:14 - 3:37: However, his one complaint is with creating the intros. He doesn’t get the option of viewing it and seeing if that’s what he wants.
Seriously what’s his obsession with entrances? If I see a review of a wrestling game, I don’t expect half of it to whine about the introductions.

3:38 - 3:56: Bores gets to the career mode, and for some reason he feels it’s lacking. I say “some reason” because he doesn’t give an explanation to this. He “feels” past games did a lot better. This is the first modern wrestling game you’ve played! How do you know this is lacking if you can’t make a comparison?

3:57 - 4:24: Then IG starts whining about a mode involving the Divas. Whining that he can’t find what purpose it serves. Funny, I could say the same thing about this complaint. What purpose does this scene serve?

The video ends with Bores saying it needs room for improvement but is still an enjoyable game. He apologizes to his Game Shredder (I can’t believe I just wrote that) and decides to destroy Bad Dudes on the NES. It wasn’t convincing when you put Where’s Waldo into a paper shredder, and it’s not convincing here. Also, wouldn’t it have made sense to shred a different wrestling game? You know, so this scene wouldn’t be random and out-of-place? Never mind, it would still be stupid.

But wait there’s more! A question comes up asking “Can you find Chris in the crowd?” and we get a couple TV clips of wrestling matches from 2000, in these the camera catches Bores in the crowd. In the first clip he’s holding an Al Snow sign, the second he’s just cheering. Okay, I don’t understand the purpose of showing these. I guess he wanted to say “I’m a wrestling fan guys, really”. I’ll believe this over his many false claims of being a gamer.

This review was meh. There were a few offending moments but overall it wasn’t anything rage-inducing.

Next Redux Recap will cover some filler videos that actually do have a lot wrong with them. One is his first foray into movie reviews, the second is the dumbest video related to Kellogg’s ever made.

Sweet merciful Kefka how many more E3 videos is he going to release? It’s been a month, nobody cares anymore.

  1. I was a wrestling fan from 2000 - 2003 and of course, I had a few WWE games and they had hardcore matches as you'd expect. If the Wii version of Raw vs Smackdown 2008 really only has chairs, then that's a huge step down from the early games. I mean, there were many items to use in hardcore matches on the PS1 games! However, I've not played this game on the Wii so I cannot confirm that and considering Bores' list of false facts, I'll be cautious on this one.

  2. There was one word to describe that review: boring. It was probably his best Neo Video because it wasn't painful to watch (painful to give him views, but not the video it self).

    Also BatDan, can you give the Battalion Wars 2 review it's own post? I despise that video so much because and;

    1. Was wuss enough to not beat more than 3 missions.

    2. Saying that it was the commanders flat for him sucking.

    3. The "joke" at 0:43.

    4. How he goes Mario 2 on it and says that he just doesn't like it and uses it as a costar in the end.

    5. The game is very good. I did sell it, but just because of the crappy multilayer. I feel like an idiot and want it back. Oh well..

    ReplyDelete
  3. If he's not offensive he's just plain boring. Also he was holding a sign for Al Snow, A wrestler who's gimmick was carrying around the head of a female mannequin and being obsessed over it (At one point in a storyline choosing it over one of the divas). Yeah thats and AWESOME wrestler to support. Not to mention he usually lost most of his matches. And dont worry about it Batdan cause you're indeed right that wrestling has fallen from its former glory. Its more for kids now, they barely cuss anymore and rarely use chairs and other such tools.

    @nuclearneo577

    Oh we all make mistakes sometimes dude. I for one have made many regretful sales when it comes to gaming but i usually try my best to get them back when I relize it

  5. Just a couple thoughts:

    Last time I checked, I play a wrestling game for the gameplay, not the intros. There have been wrestling games for ages without intros and they were still good. If a wrestling game had wrestler intros that were true to life, that's a bonus, but important? Nah.

    Bores played a game for twenty hours? Right, I have a hard time believing he played this for twenty hours, considering he'd complain about the waggle controls in a later video.

    I haven't played the Wii version, but I do have the PS2 version and even that version has more match types than the Wii (or at least from what I've seen of the footage.) I assume the limited match types is due to the fact that the developers wanted to focus on the motion controls first. I've heard the 2009 version is a step up from this with some more features, but I can't confirm since I never played. I've only got the recent 2010 iteration, which switches to a more traditional control scheme and is comparable to the other versions, but loses the online component.

    Can't speak for the PS3/Xb360 versions (I'll assume it's the same deal,) but in the PS2 version, you could uncover more weapons under in the ring during a Hardcore match. Also, reading through a couple other reviews of the game, it seems that the steel chair is the only weapon in the Wii Version. Other versions had more weapons that that.

    Other than that, not much else I have in mind. Although if I had a game shredder *groan* I would have fed it WWF Wrestlemania for NES. Not only would it have been relevant to the video, but the game's pretty awful to boot. At least Bad Dudes was semi-playable if not sluggish.

    @Motherplayer
    Did you know that Al Snow had an action figure many years ago, but was pulled from Walmart shelves because someone thought he carried the head of a decapitated woman? True story.

    Those were the days.

    Sorry, but your parody of this blog is boring.
    I recommend watching Mel Brooks or SNL to see how a parody is done correctly.

    Also, that IS Dracula in Simon's Quest. See, you DO fight the Grim Reaper in the game before that.
    And it can't be a redux recap if this is your first one.

    Good effort, but you fail.

  8. It's not suppose to be a parody, it's also boring because it's not meant to be entertaining. It's meant to be informative and combat the AVGN fanboys like yourself.

    I call it a "Redux Recap" because YOU call it that, and I'm copying your style just to prove that AVGN sucks, especially when you take a closer look at his videos.

  9. Nice recap. I wonder why he didn't "destroy" the game, I thought he spent more time ranting about it ("What do you mean my fictional diva doesn't show up in my intro??") than praising it.


    @ AVGNSucks

    Meh, it's hard to take your blog seriously if your "arguments" are nitpicky or wrong.

    By the way, do you think Super Mario Bros 2 is a bad game because you played it and didn't like it, or only because Chris said so?

    ReplyDelete
  10. @A Guy From France

    My arguments are neither nitpicky nor wrong. Well at least no more nitpicky or wrong than this crappy blog's.

    I never said SMB2 was a bad game, and neither did Chris. I said it was inferior to the original because it wasn't as good as the original.

  13. I knew what Redux and Recap means, but if I just called it a Recap, then it wouldn't have that connection to this blog. I'm using his exact style to demonstrate why AVGN sucks.

    I hate Zelda 2. It was really linear and just wasn't a very good "adventure" game.

  14. @AngrySun
    Thanks for pointing that out to me without trying to. You Know What's Bullshit is a copy of Penn and Teller's BS.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Nitpicky:
    - "He says it doesn't bother him and it makes it more like an adventure story. Why are you mentioning this?" (It's different from the first Castlevania. Why wouldn't he mention it?)
    - "He asks a question. Then he ANSWERS IT! What the hell is the point if you already know the answer." (It's called a rhetorical question.)

    Wrong:
    - "It's a puzzle game." (No it's not!)
    - "I wonder if it ever occurred to him that maybe the enemy wasn't Dracula, but actually was the Grim Reaper." (Like BatDan said, Dracula IS the final boss of the game.)


    Chris implied that SMB2 is a bad game when he outright said that it has "ass" written all over it and that it "fucking sucks". He didn't even say anything nice about this game.

  16. @AVGNSucks

    Excuse me?!
    You can't be serious!
    Did you get some sort of brain damage?

    Okay, "You Know What's BS" is NOT a rip off of Penn & Teller's show. You see, YKWBS deals with regular, mundane, everyday life things that somehow frustrate people, in a short amount of time by that, and it's really funny when you think of it. Penn & Teller's BS is funny too, even though they do deal with subjects that are serious and even scary, and for about 25 minutes, because P & T are professionals in entertainment! Though know ways to be funny, and that's great. But still, YKWBS is entertaining too, and I have serious doubts that you can make any connections between these two series.

    And one last thing, mister! those videos I linked are NOT Penn & Teller videos! 'K?

    And of course Cyberwol087 is not being a rip off of YKWBS or P & T! He's a good kid. A little slow, but he's a good kid.

    BatDan just block him, and if not, just ignore him, oh wait, this is not the typical troll that eventually gives up and goes away, this is a very sick fuck individual who loves stalk people...you may know what i am talking about.

    Anyways, Nice entry as always Batdan, also the ending part when he take the oportunity to bash Bad Dudes on the NES, seemed to me taht the whole purpose of the video was just to have an excuse to made that skit, yeah, BadDudes is not a good game, nor a good port, but hey, if you master the super punch.......is like the whole MUSCLE Review (Muscle is not really that horrid of a game, but he dint pointed the real flaws).

    Anyways, Keep the Good Job BatDAn.

  22. @A guy from France: IG only praised the remake of SMB2 because improved graphics and sound obviously make a better game -_-. Has he even heard of Conker: Live & Reloaded? Sure it has improved graphics and sound, but lots of people (including myself) prefer the original.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't think either that AVGNSucks is anonymous4488. The former supports IG, while the latter thinks he sucks. But maybe it's just an act.


    @ digiharrison

    Ah yes, I didn't count that part because it didn't concern the original. I wouldn't be surprised if he preferred the Live & Reloaded version of Conker, after his review of Turtles in Time ReShelled.

    ReplyDelete
  24. All of a sudden, I'm reminded of the top 5 NES games countdown, where he said that he preferred the SNES version of SMB3 (on SMB All-Stars) just because of the better graphics.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @vnisanian2001 Obviously you would prefer the SNES version if it has better graphics, when virtually nothing else is different.

    If one thing is improved, even a minor thing (like graphics), the game is better.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Like I'm going to take a blog seriously that actually says Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde wasn't that bad of a game.

    ReplyDelete
  27. i know i shouldnt respond to the troll, but let me counterclaim that statement he made, has anyone played Ninja Gaiden Trilogy on the SNES, it only updated the graphics a little, but this version feels off, they even get rid of some effetcs the NES games had, such as raster graphics, the darkness in stage 3 on NG2, and some of the remixed music sound with different compositions, and dont sound good, plus they get rid of the credits.

    but a better example is the PC engine version NG1, graphically looks superior, but the gameplay is sluggish and the music sounds weak.

    also the 16-bit version of Batman Return of the Joker, graphicaly at first sight looks better than the NES game, but the gameplay is more stiff and has more cheap deaths, and the structure of the graphics doesnt look good ,as well of the level design, the scale is kinda weird, in the NES version it actually looks better because of the more appropiette structure of the sprites and backgrounds, sure the NES version suffers from slippery controls and feels short, but is better than the 16-bit counterparts.

    you wanna have more examples?

    oh, and lets not forget of course, Turtles in time re-shalled

  28. @residentialevil
    Have you ever actually played Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Or are you just taking AVGN's word for it? Or are you just taking everyone else's word for it who took AVGN's word for it?

    It's bad, yes, but it really isn't WORST GAME EVAR bad. I probably wouldn't even put it on a top 5 list.

    @gatuc2425
    You don't understand the point. I said if VIRTUALLY NOTHING else changed. In Super Mario All stars the ONLY thing that really changed was the improved graphics. I think there may have been some coins thrown in here and there, but it, overall, doesn't affect the gameplay.

    The examples you listed are games that have improved graphics but worse gameplay. That doesn't work. It has to be GAMEPLAY=IDENTICAL GRAPHICS=BETTER. I'm not a graphics whore, but if they're improved, it makes the game better, even just a little better.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @AVGNSucks
    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was well known to be a horrible game well before AVGN made a video about it. You don't need to be sticking your assumptions into everyone's mouth. You say that the game "is not that bad" on your site three times, but then say that it is bad on here. That makes any actual opinion you have of a game meaningless. Ironically IG seems to do the same thing...

    You're such a master detective. What are you doing here commenting on a blog? You should be out there solving unsolved mysteries like why toast always lands on the buttered side, or how a developmentally challenged individual like you go access to the Internet.

    "Also, that IS Dracula in Simon's Quest. See, you DO fight the Grim Reaper in the game before that. And it can't be a redux recap if this is your first one. Good effort, but you fail."

    Oh, you mean like the time when you claimed the Versus series as nothing more than button mashers? (LOL, n00b). Or how about the time when you stopped using TGWTG jokes, your reviews started to sound unfunny? It ain't slim pickings, Daniel; you're just not funny or suited for this gig.

    If you want funny parodies of Bores, stick with Asalieri or that One guy (the one that needs to get harpooned). On that note, the AVGN sucks blog is about as unfunny as this one, but I guess that bit of satire when over your heads, as usual. ;)

If he didn't hate it, you wouldn't be nitpicking on this game. You probably couldn't care less about the game. This is a sign that you're an insufferable fanboy, like Batdan and his worship of the BTAS series. 9_9

    Don't Irate Gamer hater asshats do the same thing with his Encyclopedia Dramatica page? Please. AVGN has been getting criticism even during the time when he first came out; he was called a retarded, immature version of Ben Croshaw. Get your ass out of AVGN's butthole and smell the flowers, dickless; the reason IG hater morons get their panties up in a bunch whenever AVGN is criticized is because basically, this blog is just another way for you to worship AVGN (while idiotically making Bores thousands at the same time).

    Huh. Your reviews of Bores' reviews reflect their blandness, huh?

    Nah, I'm just giving you too much credit.

    "Is that what his theme is from? Digital Juice? What an ass fuck"

    That sounds hypocritical of you, Mike. After all, AVGN himself uses Digital Juice.

  44. "Because E3 already ended. So there is no point for Chris Bores to upload. If he uploaded during E3, it would make sense. But no. Chris became lazy as usual."

    LOL, logic BOMB! E3 ended, Bores is making himself not only "so bad it's good", he's making himself "so bad it's horrible", and you're _complaining_? Instead of being Plan 9 From Outer Space, he's now The Last Airbender; insufferably funny to the point of not being riffable in the least.

    This line of reasoning makes about as much sense of an argument as "Hurr durr, Bores doesn't make as much as Niga Higa, so we should advertise his site some more, hurr durr!"

  45. When did he use Digital Juice? I'm not being fanboy or anything,is just curiosity.The music he uses in his reviews is from old games o submitted by fans,so..Maybe you're talking about one of his other Cinemassacre videos,I don't know

    Hey, if you actually made a good point, then I wouldn't be rebutting your idiotic posts.

    Also, looks like you took my dare. ^_^ Will "he" finally show up? That'll be a riot. Just remember, it wasn't my fault if he arrives here, it's raccoonyiff that summoned him. ;)

    So if AVGNsucks congratulates Spain for winning the World Cup, you'd have respect for him too? :P

  52. No,I have respect for you because,when you are on the mood you make good points about the faults in AVGN videos and you are more neutral that some of the people who posts here(Neutral in an ED sense,thats bashing and having equal hatred for everything)

    AVGNsucks,in the other hand,is your average IG fanboy,so I wontever have any respect for him.I just don't like fanboys.Why can people just be..fans?

    Oh,and thanks for the congratulation

  53. First off, thanks for the grammatical corrections. Spread literacy on the Internet and rock on, dude! ;)

    "just because some people can beat a game doesn't mean it's any good. I beat E.T. on my first try last week and I Nancy played in over 20 years."

    In turn, just because some people don't like a game _because they have no idea how to play it_, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bad game. In all honesty, if AVGN weren't around, would you give a shit about Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?

    "finally, if you're going to make post that few people will begin reading and no one will finish, at least keep them short. I know you have nothing better to do with your time, bt try and find something."

    Uh, no. If you don't read it, then it's your loss. I don't give a shit of how long I can embarrass you for your opinion, as long as I can get my point across.

    Also: bt try --> but try

    You're welcome.

  54. I'm curious Mr.4488. You're dissecting all these comments yet you didn't bother to give me the same treatment in the E3 Part 3 blog post. A shame because I was looking forward to seeing your opinions on the stuff I said =(

  56. Hmmmm.......I've been wondering something myself just to stay on topic on what this post is SUPPOSED to be about; does anyone even watch wrestling anymore? I mean I was a big fan of it as a child when they had the rock and stone cold and D-generation X. It has wrestlers with great carisma. Even generally alot of fun to watch before they changed it to be more kid friendly. Which sadly marked the end of an era of greatness with Vince Mcmahon making that oh so brilliant decision.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I grew out of watching wrestling about the time I was six. I guess there are people watching if there are people who buy videogames where you can be these guys, but hell if I see the appeal.

  58. Oh WTF? I'm not Anon4488, I didn't even know who he was until now. I'm a brand, spanking new troll!

    Also, I said Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was not THAT bad, as in, not as bad as AVGN makes it out to be. The game isn't the greatest, no, but it's not "I can't play it" bad.

    I still watch some of it once in a while, although I'll admit that it hasn't been as good as it used to be. Taking the PG rating out of consideration, none of the talent is remotely interesting or unique; you can swap as many guys as you want and it'll look the same to me. There's no passion in anything; just a bunch of guys memorizing a script and going through the motions.

    There'll be a decent match here or there, but I've no interest in following the storylines or talent they have going on. At best, it serves as background noise.

    These days, I just stick with the various DVD anthology sets, just to relive or rediscover events from the older days.

    I do the exact same thing these days. I think it more or less has to do with Vince being more guy shy these days after certain wrestler deaths like Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit may have shifted his decision to make it more kid friendy which, while I cant blame him on his part, the show now has mearly resorted like you said, to having more carbon copy wrestlers with harrdly anything remotely memoroable or catchy about them.

    Really?? I havent watched wrestling in ages but hearing that may merit a checkout of the guy. Makes me think he's gonna be so bad he's cool like the hurricane was. Mr. superhero gimmick who's catchphrase was saying "Whats up with that?" as annoyingly as possible. Then he became completely boring after giving that gimmick up being some straight set teacher who used logic alot

  70. Yay! IG's site says he has just one more week of
    E3 vids. But then it says he'll START working on another
    episode. WTF?! Why couldn't he be working on one
    while uploading the vids? So it will be another
    3 months before we get another IG show.

    To quote a famous detective, I wouldn't believe IG if he swore he was lying. Especially when it comes to a release schedule.

  75. "This just in, bad video games cannot be beaten!"

    This just in; AVGN couldn't beat Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde because he doesn't know how to play it. Don't you aim the very same criticisms against Bores? Hypocritical as always.

    "Really? Seriously? No one can finish a game if it is bad? BS as always indeed."

    No, you're just saying it's a bad game because AVGN told you to think that way. Get your own opinion and play the game, you sycophant.

    Er, if he swore he was lying and you don't believe them, then you believe he's telling the truth. So you do believe him.

    What, you didn't notice how _old_ the Attitude Era was when the 2000s rolled in? Speaking of old, that's another problem they had; the top performers are still the old guys. They needed to get away from that and do something new. Unfortunately, that something new was catering to kids a la the eighties.

    Even though you don't have fond memories of today's wrestlers, just imagine the anger of wrestling fans back in the eighties who grew up with the likes of Ric Flair and the Horsemen who had to endure the superhero exploits of Hulkamania. Fans of an old era will always hate the new era simply because nostalgia plays tricks on their memories and perception.

    With that said, WWE's Invasion Angle was a wasted opportunity.
