Cite Your Sources Bores. Otherwise You're Still a Thief

I've brought up how in History of Video Games Part 3 Bores stole b-roll from the CNBC documentary "Game On: The Unauthorized History of Video Games". Well, this just came to my attention.

A user named BritishGermanKid did some research on the footage Bores used in Part 4. He sent multiple links to vicviper592 who in turn sent the links to me.

Do these videos look familiar? They're the very same ones Bores used in his video, without giving credit.
Now, let's see all the possible places he could have credited them.
The Description? Nope, only enough room for "Yep, it's finally here!"
The end of the video? Nope, just the credit. "Writer", Producer, Editor Chris Bores.

So Bores uses this footage and doesn't even the decency to cite these people as his source. Tsk tsk, very unprofessional.

This also means Bores is still a plagiarist. If it isn't lines and ideas, it's footage that he didn't get himself.

UPDATE: You'll notice MrF4brice (the man playing Shark Jaws) commented on Bores' video pointing out how he stole it. How long until it's deleted?

UPDATE 2: Bores changed the description to give credit to MrF4brice. However he gets the username and the name of the game wrong (it's Shark Jaws not Shark Attack you idiot!)

Thanks to vicviper592 for sending me these videos and thanks BritishGermanKid for spending time finding them.

  1. By Jove, no one is safe from the plagiarizing Chris Bores! I'd ask if he had even an ounce of dignity left, but he's already proven otherwise. Seriously, what is his problem?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Thanks for the post. I'm surprised CNBC still doesn't know about the stolen footage from that documentury.

    I wonder how many strikes Bores has? I know he got one for stolen footage from Office Max for that "Elf Yourself" video.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I went ahead and left comments on those videos telling the people they'd been stolen from. Here's hoping more than one of them report the guy...

  5. And the worse part of this is that his f**king 12-year-old fanboys are DEFENDING the Irate Gamer.

    It's stupid fan comments that made me unsubscribe to the Irate Gamer's account...well that, and he's a douchebag.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Bores updated the description of the video:

    "Yep, it's finally here!
    Also special thanks to F4brice for the Shark Attack Footage"

    The game is called Shark Jaws and his name is MrF4brice.

    He can't even do his citations correct!

    ReplyDelete
  7. @Zinger314
    Ugh. Still, he hasn't cited everyone else. Including that footage of the couple exchanging gifts. That's obviously not his.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Just encase he deletes the comment:

    MrF4brice wrote:

    "I'm the guy playing Shark Jaws in this video.

    You stole parts of *MY* video (look for "Atari Shark Jaws arcade cabinet (1975)" in youtube).

    Why don't you credit me ?

    Why didn't you request autorization ?"

    ReplyDelete
  9. I don't know what pisses me off more. IG, or his mother freaking, stupid, ignor-wow I think I just answered my own question........

    I remember the unauthorized history, man its been years since I caught that on TV......

    ReplyDelete
  10. Whew, that was close, wasn't it Mr. Bores? It's a good thing you gave that guy credit, or he might have gotten your video removed! You'd better hope the seven other people you stole footage from don't realize what you've done, or you'll be in a pickle!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Long time reader, first time commenter...wow, this is a new low. I really hope a lot of these people report him; the little twerp certainly deserves it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. @pogher
    That comment was responded with the "fair use" defense of using copyrighted material :-/

  13. @Darthgamer
    Yeah it's a really well-done documentary.

    @Cosmo
    It's amazing how low he can truly go.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I guess he's never gonna run away from being a plagiarist

    ReplyDelete
  15. Bored changed the game title in the description.

    "Yep, it's finally here!
    Also special thanks to F4brice for the Jaws Game Footage"

    How do you get the game title wrong TWICE?!

    The only reason he even made the change was because he got a notification for the video response.

    ReplyDelete
  16. and remember people, this was the same guy that went on late 2007 and most of 2008 removing videos that critized him under the excuse of "copyright infightment" of Y2B productions.....

    it's official, Bores is the king of plagiarism of Youtube

    ReplyDelete
  17. People are defending him in the comments still. This is a disgrace.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think the last time I checked, the vid also had more likes than dislikes

    Ok checked, has 1,433 likes and 347 dislikes at the time of this post.

    It's going to happen. There are people dumb enough to find his show entertaining and informative.

    @TheGreatMolo
    Yeah he clearly doesn't understand what Bores did wrong.
    Fair Use applies to movie/TV clips and songs, but it's also courteous to give credit. What Bores did was swipe clips from other YouTube users.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @TheGreatMolo

    Do IG's fans know how the world works?? You know? THE REAL WORLD?! It may not be illegal, but just because its not illegal doesn't mean IG can (don't sugar-coat it fanboys) STEAL footage from other people.

    I mean holy crap are IG's fans ignorant, and in this case ignorance is NOT bliss. I mean Ray William Johnson can't get away with it and neither should IG.

    I gotta calm down.........

    ReplyDelete
  22. Another thing Rayquaza911 said just smelled of hypocrisy. It was back when James posted his Christmas special video and he/she claimed whoever liked that video were kids.

    …Yes, because we all know Chris Bores videos are strictly adult materiel...Give me a break.

    Yeah, he’s entitled to his/her opinion and all, but he/she said it like it was a bad thing.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I bet there's plenty of people who could make better quality videos than Bores in a single day.

    That'd be a way to teach him a lesson, when Bores finishes a video he worked three or four months on, if somebody else would release a better-quality video immediately afterwards on the same subject matter.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @TheGreatMolo
    I love how he claims only kids liked that AVGN Christmas special. He's probably a kid himself considering the name Rayquaza911. Not that I have anything against Pokemon but he just reeks of one of those Brawl/Pokemon kids and it's funny to see him pointing out what seems kiddish to him.

    Hell, HVGN did make 3 Halloween Reviews last year in a Month, so i think is totally possible.

    @General

    Oh, and speaking of HVGN....what are you expectations of his 1st DVD release?.

    probably is going to be sold before at MAGFETS this year

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am thinking of doing "A whole review in a day" thing i.e. writing, filming and editing in one whole day. Problem is, I got to have, MONEYYY (to buy editing software and a capture card)

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's about time someone called him out on this subject. If possible,I hope someone could convince MrF4brice to forcing Chris to remove the footage. Remember Cartoon Wars? The thought of a chain reaction completely destroying his career is... heh.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My goodness, what is wrong with me lately? So many spelling errors and redundancy...

    ReplyDelete
  29. @ fattoler -
    be careful when picking hardware/software. i've had a bad experience with video capture devices that only capture as format that can not be edited. sometimes you get stuck with watch-only videos, sometimes they try to sell you more software to actually unlock the functions that the hardware should have had in the first place.

    as for video editing software, i've experienced a few. pinnacle studio was decent, vegas video worked great (i used it to make two AMVs) but sometimes wouldn't export and there was nothing i could do about it. adobe works good but it's expensive as hell.

    the most recent hardware i've tried to work with was eyeTV, which is one of those that doesn't allow editing as it should and tries to sell you more software for about $70.

    the best video editing software i've used is final cut express (no i'm not a fanboy).

    what i might suggest is just finding software that will do screen captures and just play the games in an emulator, then you don't need video capture hardware. if you want to appear in your videos, use a webcam.

    ReplyDelete
  30. When (rather if) I start making videos, I'll have higher standard of quality. For game-capturing I'll use the actual console unless I'm forced to use an emulator.

    I'll also have a real camcorder. Webcams are not quality.

    Of course I'll save up for Adobe. Final Cut is excellent but I don't have a Mac so...

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've got a Sony Camcorder, still uses mini-disks though...

    ReplyDelete
  32. some webcams are HD, they look great so long as you get a good setup (lighting and stuff).

    and what's the problem with emulators? you may actually get better footage with them (I remember trying to capture NES footage from original hardware cause problems because of refresh rates. ever seen videos where the sprouts disappear and you know the player can see them just fine?)

    ReplyDelete
  33. and by "sprouts" I mean "sprites"..
    ducking spellcheck.

  34. Hey BatDan, I hate to bother you like this, but could you do me a favor and check out my blog for my text review of "Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles?"

    I'm thinking about going into reviewing games myself, but I want to make sure my writing is good enough (hence why I'm doing just text reviews first).

    It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  39. Hey Batdan, I was wondering, how about your own personal Blog?

    A simple normal blog so that we get to know you a bit more?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Fattoler, like Shaolin Dave said, be careful on what you pick. I once bought a video capture card and it didn't work. Then I bought a DVD Recorder which has a lot of problems but at least it does the job. Sure, emulators would work too, but the DVD recorder comes in handy when you want to show Sega Genesis footage or Wii footage.

  41. In other news, MAGFest 9 kicked ass.

    Managed to get a cup autographed by Rolfe, Spoony, Linkara, and John St. John (Duke Nukem's voice actor)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Here's something weird... does anyone know someone by the name of redcat608? In the Jaws interview, he/she asked me what other videos Bores ripped off, so I sent him/her here, and she sent me a message in return saying he'd/she'd "address this with Chris and hopefully he will correct himself"... It's probably nothing, but it would appear to be someone who knows Bores. I have no clue what that's about, but I figured I'd share.

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Shaolin Dave I am also starting my own video game reviews on YouTube, it's called "megaTgames", if you're interested search up the name by YouTube channels. I also think I can do a better job than Bores in 3 days of producing(not that I will do it).

    ReplyDelete
  44. @dhochoy

    i didn't find anything by "megaTgames", have you uploaded anything yet?

    the biggest piece of advice i could give you (and i'm sure most in this blog would agree with me) is to try and stay away from skits as much as possible. even the good reviewers tend to have way too many skits and it really takes away from the show.

    ReplyDelete
  45. If you want skits, don't let them overshadow the review portion. At most, make it 90% review and 10% sketch.

    ReplyDelete
  46. @ShaolinDave I need the equipment first, it says so in the channel, here's the link : http://www.youtube.com/user/megaTgames?feature=mhum

    And don't worry, I won't be doing a lot of skits in my reviews

    ReplyDelete
  47. @dhochoy

    cool.

    beyond the advice around the skits, all i can really say is give credit to your inspirations, and try to find something to set you apart.

    i've considered doing reviews as well, but probably will never get around to it. a few things i've thought about doing is having a show that's 100% fan request, or reviewing only obscure and indie games or mods.

    ReplyDelete
  48. These comments have become a 'who to watch for' this year, I'm pretty excited ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have a feeling the irategamer's next video will be uploaded in March and it will be movies he looks forward to in 2011.

    I still can't believe he chose Grown-Ups and The Last Airbender last year. The Last Airbender was one of the worst movies of 2010, and I thought Grown-Ups was ok.

    Anyway, since it's common that it often takes months for him to make a new video, I'm sure he won't make anything except 2011 summer movies in March soon.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Watch this video:

  51. ^Wow. That's like how a 12-year old would try to win an Internet argument. I mean, the guy's 31, for Pete's sake! Sure doesn't act like it though... does he?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Is this even new though?, doesn't Bores have a history of acting like this to some people who have PM'd him in the past?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I just saw Utuber337's video and holy crap has Bores hit an all time low. I mean seriously IG fanboys, HOW old is your golden idol? Twelve? Never have I seen someone so arrogant since Zamato Elite, "I'm much better than you, deal with it bro" or something like that. Bores, are you bragging about being famous on the internet for stealing content from someone else, and lying to everyone about being a gamer?

    You suck Bores, plain and simple

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have little confidence in screenshots of youtube messages. Most of what I've seen are obvious fakes. You don't even need photoshop skills to fake them either.

    This one is less likely fake, video switching between messages is much harder to do.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yeah that one doesn't look too fake since he kept switching between videos.

    If it was just still images then I wouldn't trust it.

    ReplyDelete

    Looks like those messages are real. Wow, just wow.

    ReplyDelete
  57. @BatDan

    So Bores has hit an all time low. He deserves every amount of hate he gets.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well, seeing as how the guys original message to Chris was pretty insulting, It would make sense that he'd throw something back.

    I've sent several messages to Christ suggesting how he could make improvements to his work, and I've never gotten anything arrogant/insulting back.

    ReplyDelete
  59. @HH Kelevra
    True, but hasn't he considered ignoring them?

    I imagine Spoony and the Nostalgia Critic get a ton of hatemail but do they respond to every single one? Probably not.

    ReplyDelete
  60. @Blaze The Movie Fan

    Well, we can only hope that... umm... well, honestly I don't know if I should be irritated by his extreme laziness or be glad that we don't have to deal with his incompetence for the next few months. Personally, his idiotic reviews don't bother me much but the comments agreeing with him nearly make my head explode.

    @Shaolin Dave

    I've tried to dip my hand into reviewing my self but then realized that my bias gets too much in the way. Now that I've learned from my past mistakes, all I need is a microphone.

    @Darthgamer

    I really didn't know what to think at first. To be honest, I denied the possiblity of Bores being a stupid AND concieded at the same time. But this... this is just remarkable. Then again, think back to his Dark Chapters garbage and his Haunt Investigators bullshit. Bores tried everything he could to become famous. Now that he's become well known (take note that there is a difference between being famous and being well known) he's naturally going to rub it in the faces of those who've worked harder then he has. It's sad that great independent reviewers are being shunned while this asshole gets pushed forward. I can no longer try to make peace. Fuck that ugly piece of shit.

    @Batdan

    Hey Batdan, would you mind taking a gander at my blog? Please give me your honest opinion.

  61. You know, i comment this to Archfiend and i say'd here....

  62. @Gatuca
    It could lead to a steady decrease in subscribers.

    There may be the chance of his ignorant fan base coming to his defense. But I am pretty sure that a ton of people are going to unsubscribe to him.

  64. @Gatuca
    He admitted he was an influence. Okay, now say that in an actual video instead of someone's PM box.

    Seriously, quit hiding and admit what you did.

    ReplyDelete
  65. You Wanna Know what could be My Biggest Worrie if this actually gets worse, well you could check my blog if you want but i will tell it here too.

    That Bores Might Snap against us, and the whole situation might not beign funny (in the sense of criticism and parodiying him) but rather depressing and sad as well of anger indusing, but not in the way of his imbecile poor quality but rather on that of a horrible person that left a scar.

    what do you think guys?

    ReplyDelete
  66. @BatDan
    I seriously doubt he'd EVER admit something like that to everyone. He's created a kingdom where everything is according to him, if he doesn't like something, he has it removed, well he USED to, nowadays he has his fans to do that. He feels that he doesn't need to, but maybe if he did, people might not attack him for the rip-off accusations.

    As for him being a hack of a gamer, He's NEVER going to escape that. The whole hack of the AVGN thing got old after a while, and it has become the target argument for IG fans who claim people only hate IG because he ripped off the AVGN.

    ReplyDelete
  67. i kind of see what gatuca means. but i cant fully agree until it actually does happen. he definitely brought it upon himself, but i hope
    it doesnt get to the point of just bein depressing.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Bores has really let the "fame" go to his head. I mean, he can't be better than anybody, because we don't have more haters than fans.

    ReplyDelete
  69. @HH Kelevra

    Just curious. What suggestions did you send to Bores?

    BTW, I'm wondering if he'll still reply like he just did to utuber337, if we say that his facts are all wrong, without mentioning AVGN? From what I saw with the latest IG related YouTube videos, it seems YouTubers are e-mailing Bores all of a sudden.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Watched Archfiend's live video. They're real.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yep, those messages sent to utuber337 are real.

    He tried to explain he was "defending himself". By being a pompous dickhead? That's not how it works.

    ReplyDelete
  72. You know I've just noticed something: it has been nearly 2 weeks since HoVG4 was released and the trailer for it still has more views than the actual video.
    Over 131,000 subscribers and only 66,000 views in a week and and a half? I'm guessing a lot of his fans have lost interest in this crap. A good thing mind you.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Irate gamer. I have one word for you,YOU SUCK!
    You're a thief for stealing people's videos!
    You got MrF4brice and Shark Jaw name all wrong!
    Your fan are just a bunch of idiots!

    ReplyDelete
  74. You know what, I find it sad that Bores ignores e-mails about how to do better in his reviews, yet replies to e-mails saying that he's an AVGN ripoff.

    Also, anyone noticed that Monoxide, aka Sega Kid, replied to Archfiend? If Monoxide does reviews again, they better be better than his old reviews. But those were like 4 years ago, and I guess Monoxide might of gotten better after that long wait.

    ReplyDelete
  75. As much of a thief Chris is, he did give a guy credit for allowing him to use a footage of his.

    ReplyDelete
  76. @zonic94
    Yeah I've noticed that despite having over 100k subs his videos don't get that many views. Is this evidence of multiple fake accounts?

    @vicviper592
    It seems the only way he'll listen is A. NO HOSTILITY AT ALL and B. Don't mention the AVGN or any other reviewer that he's stolen from.
    But I doubt he'll ever listen. Even Eric "Wise Sage" Allen has offered suggestions and he's ignored them.

    @dhochoy
    Yeah, after he was told that he stole it.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Two extra notes.

    Bores uploaded his Castlevania: Harmony of Despair review to YouTube. I've already done a recap so no point in rewatching it.

    IrateGamerParodies has gotten doctorkickles to do commentaries over the Save-State Gamer series. He'll answer any questions you have about the series in them. Except for why he closed his account, he's still quiet on that. It must be really personal.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I have a feeling that it could be a "remastered" version. My guess is:

    -The 800 MS point mistake won't be fixed. Although the game was 600 MS points during the Christmas week only.
    -Same with the "sex", or "six" characters part.
    -Only change: "OMFG, Simon Belmont is going to be in the game."

    I haven't seen it yet, but I have a feeling he's going to complain that Simon's 8-bit.

  87. @dhochoy
    Remember, there was only one 2600theatari. The other two ("teh" and "thee") were trolls. The original was always that retarded 11-12 year old.

    And hey, he made another video about me. Remember that challenge I set-up? I wanted an IG fan to prove me wrong without bringing up the AVGN.
    Well, Charlie responded and failed. Sure, he didn't bring up the AVGN but his points were complete shit.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Basically, the video amounted to Charlie bringing up one of my points and responding with "No you're wrong!"

    No explanation at all. For 6 minutes and 38 seconds.

  89. Urrg, I need to watch something with Clint Eastwood in it to wash out that bad taste, and seeing that I've just aquired all the Dirty Harry films on Blu Ray in the January Sales that shouldn't be hard. :3

    Also in unrelated news I gone and went to see "The King's Speech" and all I have to say, I was literally blown away. The story is about a young Elvis Presley who has to make a speech in order to stop some guy in Germany. Now I haven't read the King comics for a while but I felt that Colin Firth was an excellent choice for Bertie Wooster. However I did feel that there was too much dialogue in this movie which made it confusing for me. Being a film director myself I understand the importance of keeping audiences awake and interested with original sketches and one liners. In conclusion, fans and non-fans of Elvis should enjoy this film, so in conclusion, awesome flick.

    (In all seriousness It was utterly amazing go watch it).

    *shakes head* Shameful. If he's going to pretend he was hacked then he should reflect that on his channel. Fill his background with shock images, remove all his videos, something that doesn't make it look like he's a coward.

    That's awesome. HVGN is one of my favorite reviewers.
    I value his opinion so much that I'm thinking of sending him free copies of any games I make to beta test, since he obviously knows what makes a good game.

    i saw the page of IG, and i dont see any info on any difference?, are you sure you dint misunderstood man?.

    @General

    As for Bores pulling out that he's not him but a Hack, yeeeeeeaaaaah, doesnt work that much like that, wow.

    Maybe Bores was in a Bad mood when he made the original messages, and that will be the best scenario.

    LOL The kid can't even defend IG when it comes to special effects,which however,is his only redeeming factor.

    Seeing his video, IG fanboys have proven to do a worse job defending IG without bringing up AVGN than when they DO bring him up, and that's saying a lot, to stuff like this: lukestarkiller441 thinks AVGN's humor is plagiarized from South Park but he can't bring up any solid proof, just vague statements.That also shows how far IG fantards like luke would go to make AVGN look bad, and IG look good, even to defend a show that they hate(I.E South Park), but 2600theatari....man....


    lukestarkiller441 = Pathetic

    That was just one of the MANY batshit insane things to come out of lukestarkiller's mouth.

    He seemed to loathe AVGN because he drank beer in his videos. Going by his profile, he was an avid follower of CM Punk and his character. Even though CM Punk isn't like that in real life, lukestarkiller is an idiot.

  104. Long-time reader, first-time commenter here:

    As far as CB's e-fame goes, I'd like to point out that if we're measuring e-fame by YouTube subscribers, he has about 6,000 fewer subscribers than CopperCab (whose only claim to fame is GINGERS DO HAVE SOULS!). It doesn't speak well to his popularity that for all of his 179 videos, more people are apparently anxious to see what a guy who only has 19 videos (of which only one is really noteworthy) is going to come out with next.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Did you watch the ArchFiends newest video on the Irate Gamer? It makes me hate him even more. He says that he is better than everyone and we have to "deal with it"

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wow, Chris is sure replying to many of comments on his new video. He even replied to a hater.

    ReplyDelete
  107. 90 seconds. Not worth covering.

    I will say that he got some things wrong. All the first-party titles have no confirmed release, and the "newly unveiled" titles have been known since E3.

    Also, the price will NOT drop around Christmas. It's Nintendo, they rarely drop prices.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Long time reader man, and I don't have the cajones to watch an episode of Bores'. The mere fact that by watching it I would make him 2 cents richer disgusts me. And you have to watch it multiple times in order to truly explain and expose and many other words that begin with "exp" why Bores is a blight upon the gaming world. I tip my fedora to you, good sir as I lay down the bassline of badassery in your honor.

    ReplyDelete
  109. P.S.

    Has anyone seen youtube's new layout? It's a freaking nightmare.

    ReplyDelete
  110. @ Fedora
    I went the longest time without watching Bores, I saw two of this videos and couldn't bring myself to give the impression of supporting him anymore.
    I eventually did get around to watching everything of his (i think) by ways of other people's videos with commentary added.
    Not to say it was worth it, but now I can say for a fact that all of his videos suck, not just the ones I've seen,

  111. I asked Lady Buggin if she had better things to do than defend her 30 year old son, all she says is no I don't and that he's 32 "ha!" I guess I got intellectually checkmated there.

    P.s. what did you think of my Boresian review of the King's Speech? I was wondering why Chris hasn't made any movie reviews recently, yet again that's probably a good thing.

  116. Thank you very much Fedora'd Samurai. Fedoras are awesome, I should get one.

    Yes, YouTube's new layout is very counter-intuitive. I loathe it.

    @fattoler
    So she doesn't have a job or something? A hobby, helping the community, doing something better in her 50s then yelling at people on the Internet? That's pretty sad.

    Wait, 32? Bores is 31 (I checked my archives and I updated a post about it). She doesn't even know her son's own age?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Who knows, all I can say is that I've encountered old people on the internet before and about 75% of them are mad, bad, or just childish. I guess I've gotten used to the image that when people turn 50 they do things like gardening or go on cruises, you know, act their age and have a sense of grandeur and restraint. I guess that era is over :'(

  118. @BatDan Either she can't count or she's just a troll trying to get some attention.

  119. @BatDan

    I somehow find it suprising that there is a mother that doesn't know the exact age of her child, though this is Chris' mother, a person who defends this hack for no apparent reason and responds to arguments like a lousy five-year old, we are talking about

    ReplyDelete
  120. I saw the Nostalgia Critic's review of The Secret of NIHM 2, and at one point of the review, the Critic says that treating a child like a god or prodigy, even before he or she actually does something, will give the child emotional scarring. Is that how Bores was brought up?

    ReplyDelete
  121. you know i start doubting that is really Bores Mother at all.

    BTW the previosu comment about 2 cents per view, well that reminds me, i hate how people whine about how youtube partners "only get paid penis", impliying that they dont get money at all form their vids, and yes, IG fanboys can use it to defend Bores by saying he doesnt make money on youtube.

    But let's take that claim seriously for once, and do one thing that most people doesnt do, MATH. (asuming that's the real statistic of youtube earning system).

    2 cents per view huh?. that's basically says you get a dollar for 50 views, so lets count, how many views bores get per video, and then divide it with 50, how many do we get?

    let's take a look at Bores most viewed video today, th ebrawl NEO review, who has 5262085 Views, and let's divide it by 50.

    We get 105,241.70 Dollars he has made since he made that video in 2008, DAMN, sure this quantity is only considreing the time the video had up, but still, is quite a lot, now try to do the same to the rest of his video that he profits......

    Too much for Penies huh?.

    ReplyDelete
  122. @Gatuca
    LOL lukestalker uses that penis excuse ALL the time and he doesn't think IG is greedy he thinks AVGN is just because he makes more money;Very weak logic I must say, doesn't he think to the fact AVGN might have earned it while IG did not.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Guys, are saying PENNIES or Penis? because there is quite an important difference between the two.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I don't think Lady Buggin is Chris Bores' Mother.

    Really, there's no proof, it's all circumstantial. She has implied many times that she's his Mom, but anyone could make an account and troll with it. In fact, I'm confused on all of you are convinced about this. It's just as convincing as Irate Gamer's Facebook account. I'm not saying Lady Buggin is not his Mom, I could be totally incorrect.

  128. @ pohger

    LadyBuggin also signed his guestbook during "the dark chapters", long before he was IG, long before he was notorious enough to attract trolls like this. He hasn't called her out on it then or now. So yeah, it's probably really his mom.

  129. Jesus, If I was doing a web reviewing thing (which I've had planned but I wanna get outta university first) but I know my parents (who are not gamers in any way at all) and if I got any fact wrong and they found out about it, they'd get on my ass to correct it anyway.

  130. New video and contest from IG. I actually entered for the lols.

  131. Oh. With those two confirmations, I believe it too. I'm just not sure why after 3 years of the Irate Gamer she FINALLY makes an appearance.

  132. You know i can translate Bores latets Contest Giveaway Video like this:

    "Please subscribe to my channel because i lost a shitload of subscribers thanks to that person that leaked the PMs i sen......i mean that hacker sent, and that asshole Archfiend."

    ReplyDelete
  133. Well, he's giving away his own property. At least he's not assisting a scam site this time.

    ReplyDelete
  134. @pohger
    Actually she's been defending him since the beginning.

    @Gatuca
    Basically. He always holds a contest whenever he starts losing subs. Take the Tekken 6 review. Lost a lot of subs, so he promised a free PS3.

    ReplyDelete
  135. @Batdan

    Sure, but of course the reason why he's losing subs now if because the mindfuck that was the late PM's.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I know, I was just referencing a past event.

    You know, his fans are all 11-12 so I doubt they'd enjoy or appreciate the games themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  137. "Just write "Pick Me" in the comments section below to enter! Enter as many times as you like"

    So it's essentially a spamming contest that's already rigged?

    ReplyDelete
  138. Oh my god, another "Pick me" contest? How the fuck would that work?

    ReplyDelete
  139. The new video shows off an obvious lack of knowledge (he seems to think augmented reality is entirely new, when in fact it's been around for years (from smartphone apps to The Eye of Jugement for PS3). My own videos may not be as well-known as Bores', but at least I bother to properly research them so each video has a point.

    What reason did he even have for the 3DS video other than money? He stopped providing his own opinion long ago, and his audience - ostensibly GAMERS - can get the cold, unprocessed information earlier than he can provide the exact same content.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Usually IG makes a title card for his videos. Sometimes a drawing by that datboidrew, but usually just a picture of himself with text. With his latest video he was too lazy to even do that, instead he just has big text that says "HOV Pt 4"

    ReplyDelete
  141. these latest 2 videos show how much ig only cares for money. the 3ds video was lazy and unneccesary but his contest shows it better. its a cheap way to get money. "comment as many times as you like" people will put tons of comments several times saying pick me. they dont have to do anything special, neither does he. but he will get money from it. douchebag.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Jesus, does this asshat have any idea how a contest works?! and how does he choose them? does he write down all the names and copies of them, put them in a top hat and draw a name from it? Does he have some sort of malfunction in his head?!

    ReplyDelete
  143. It's not a contest, it's more of a raffle. You may see it as a way to get subs, but as long as he's playing by the rules (admittedly, he's probably not) there's nothing really to complain about.

    I mean he IS (well, maybe) giving away free stuff for free. He may get money out of it, but we don't give him the money.

    ReplyDelete
  144. thats a good point. but he should get subs through making good videos (something he will never do ) instead of just randomly giving stuff away to make up for the people who unsubscribed after the archfiends video.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I realized something about the Irate Gamer, do you ever notice that whenever he comments on how long it took for him to make a video, it's always "two months?"
