LittleBigPlanet 2 with No Idea What's Going On

Wow, color me shocked. Just about everyone was thinking that IG’s next Neo travesty would be Mortal Kombat 9. We were wrong. For once Chris Bores has defied expectations. Instead his newest Neo video is LittleBigPlanet 2.

Does that mean this video is good? Of course not! It’s the same brand of idiocy and tedium he’s provided since 2007. What else is new?
*checks LBP 2’s release date* January 2011, nice to see he’s still looking at the games months after they actually come out. Why review something within two weeks of the release date? Just put it off in favor of uploading a trailer, adding some sentences at the end, and claim it’s a review.

As usual, he posted an update to his YouTube account announcing the review. He also says he’s been “hard at work” on his newest video, something that would have been released months ago if you weren’t lazy.
“It’s almost finished, I still got a lot of work to do” Am I the only one that finds that contradictory?
“The uh trailer will be up soon uh…” My God you’re a terrible liar. If your plagiarism accusations went to trial, you will lose so hard.
He also brings up E3, oh that’s going to hurt if he goes again. Please SWAG, please don’t bring him. You had to see those disastrous interviews, that can’t happen again.

The description says the episode will be up next weekend. Let’s see if he actually keeps his word this time.

Onto the video.

0:06 - 0:24: “I get a lot of e-mails from fans asking what I’m playing currently” Just once, could you start a god damn video without bringing up your fans. Just say “Today I’m looking at L.A. Noire” or “Today’s review is Mortal Kombat 9”. Bringing up your fans just reeks of desperation, like you really want people to believe you have a fanbase.
I know I keep bringing this up, but if he keeps doing it then I’m going to mention it.

During his intro there’s a blatant jump-cut. You really couldn’t say “I’ve been playing LittleBigPlanet 2 a lot” in one take? Also, am I the only that notices the bizarre audio quality? He sounds weird when he says “let’s see how stacks up”, like the audio skipped or something. He made this in five minutes, didn’t he?

0:25 - 1:03: IG begins gushing about the game, saying it’s so much better than the first with better graphics, better levels, and more fun. Once again, Chris Bores has forgotten that the character he plays is supposed to be angry about video games. Smoooth.

He goes on to talk about “gimmicks” in each level, there’s a major dip in quality in the “cake level” shot that shows he took the footage from someone else, and I’m really getting a Game Dude vibe from this video. The fast-pace, the lack of explanations, all that’s left is for him to make a graphic bestiality line in an attempt to be like the AVGN.

1:04 - 1:19: *cuts to IG* “Now let’s talk about gameplay” *cuts to game* Well that shot added a lot to this 2 minute 42 second review.
“The controls are simple, they’re smooth to use, you go through all kinds of levels” This video feels jumpy, and not in a good way. It’s like he forgot to take his meds.

1:20 - 1:42: Pointless split-screen joke in 3, 2...
We cut to IG with a lot of space over his head (subtle) as two clones of him literally explode into shot, simultaneously button-mashing. No really, they’re doing the exact same movements in-sync. It’s kind of creepy, like synchronized robots.
“The multiplayer is where this game really shines” I thought it was the extremely in-depth customization and large amount of user-created levels?
Blah blah blah multiplayer is awesome with friends or online. God, you could take this part and put it over any game with multiplayer. Street Fighter IV is better with a friend, Modern Warfare 2 is better in multiplayer. At least reviews of those games go into detail on why multiplayer is better, he just says it’s good and leaves it at that!

1:43 - 2:16: IG then brings up the game’s one downside. Let’s see what pointless nitpick it is this time.
He brings up when playing online, a friend might reject your invite but the game still forces you into the level. … What?
He then complains that he has to go back and try again, and it can happen up to four times on slow nights.
… Oh wow, this is weaponized stupidity. Look, I don’t own LBP2 so I can’t tell you if this is annoying or not. But as someone who is interested, this sounds less like an issue and more like whining. It sounds like he’s just complaint fishing in order to fill his “Irate quota”, like that complaint about the sound in Brutal Legend.
I… ugh. Can’t one just pause the game and quit? I’m sure it’s not that big of a deal. Again, he’s probably complaint fishing.
“Oh come on you asshole!” You’re cursing again? Pick a style and stick with it!

He gets into the final verdict. Blah blah worth the money and blah blah blah…
“You’ll even find this game has a lot of replay value” Nooooooo really? The game with hundreds of new levels added every day has replay value? I’d love to see him review an MMORPG, that would be gloriously stupid.
And he brought back “game on”. His delivery of that line sounded really off, like he was doing a bad impression while saying it. A bad impression of who? I don’t know, just someone.

I really don’t know what to say. It feels like he put zero effort into it, like GotGame told him he needs to release a new video so he threw that together. I just feel confused.

Maybe we’ll get to cover the next official IG episode soon? SEVEN MONTHS!

  1. Knew it. I don't actually watch the IG reviews. I read this Blog, and watched Asa's RAR as well as some of DLAbaoaqu's videos. I use Adblock plus, but I don't know if he gets paid per view. No reason to give the hack more money.
    Also, mentioned this in the last post. It seems the IrateGamerParodies channel was taken down. Despite it being protected by fair use.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Huh? My previous comment got deleted. Well. What I had said was:
    I knew this is how the review would be. Did he even mention the fact that you could design levels as something other than platformers? I don't watch the reviews myself. I use the recaps on this site, Asa's RARs, and DLAbaoaqu's videos. The reason being that despite my using ADblock plus, I don't know if he gets paid per view. I'd rather not give this hack more money.

  3. At least he didn't say it was part of the "Little Big" series.

  4. Oh good gosh, please! ANYTHING but E3! I will do anything to stop him. I am seeing him put up 50 videos this time, going three months after the expo ends.

  6. I own LBP2 and it says: There are other sackfolk playing this level too! Do you want to join them?
    It's really not much of a problem. Sometimes I just want to play the level alone.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I don't really get why he says it has better graphics. It looks pretty similar to the previous game.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Why didn't he mention online? That's the most fun part in the game!

  9. @ArabGamer
    The IrateGamerParodies channel has only been put on private I think. All the videos are still up, you just have to search for them manually.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I like how he calls the grappling hook a "slingshot-gun"

    ReplyDelete
  11. Just once, could you have a blog post WITHOUT bringing up the AVGN. Just say “That was tacky” or “What on Earth was that?”. Bringing up the AVGN defies the whole point of your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Good ol' Bores: disappointing as always.

    But I guess he'll make a MK review eventually - next year or so...

    And now I know why I rarely comment on Youtube videos: Enjoy my first time getting "owned" by a Bores fanboy:

    "OMG YOU ARE REALY THE MOST FUCKING RETARDED PERSON ON THE INTERNET I HAVE EVER SEEN, HOW YOU WOULD SAY SUCH A FUCKING RETARDED THING IS SO FUCKING CRAZY THAT YOU SHOULD STOP USING THE INTERNET, GO UP THE THE IRATE GAMERS FACE AND SAY THAT! FIRST OF ALL YOU ARE WAISTING ALL YOUR POINTLESS EFFORT SAYING THIS SHIT BECAUSE HE IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THEN YOU. SERIUSLY, IF THE WORLD HAD A CHOICE TO SAVE HIM OR YOU, THEY WOULD THINK WHY ON EARTH WOULD WE SAVE A FUCKING TROLL! FUCKING TROLL!"

    Thank you, ACinthemaking!

  14. I just just critizised the arguments made in this video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYraX-ywSlo

    My reactions were:

    "If he's peaceful, why is the the IRATE gamer? What does this reason have to do with anything?

    We hate him because he has no f*cking clue what he's talking about. Besides, he last copied stuff 4 month ago because he takes THAT LONG to make any new videos.

    Quantity does NOT equal quality !

    How can he imrpove without feedback? He makes TONS of mistakes and never admits them!

    Ignoring him won't stop him. He thinks of himself as a genius, for f*cks sake!

    With fans like you, he doesn't need us!"

    A little bit profanity, but a lot tamer than other comments - which makes me wonder why he owned me of all people. Maybe it was because of my other comment, in which I disagreed with someone comparing Bores to Ed Wood?

    "That'd be insulting to Ed Wood: He had a deep love for cinema, even though his own talent was very limited. Bores on the other hand does NOT care about video games!"

    Considering his reaction, I guess he just picked the first anti-Bores comment he could find and tried to own me.

    ReplyDelete
  15. @ULad.

    He only mentions AVGN once, in relation to Game Dude...

    ReplyDelete
  16. the sackboy looked like evil gamer, and Bores didn't point it out?
    did he finally learn what subtlety is?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have the feeling the jump-cut is due to Bores cutting out an unfinished special effect, like in his Sonic review.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Isn't slingshot gun a little redundant? It's like saying fedora hat or grenade bomb.

    ReplyDelete
  19. C'mon, man! You didin't pick up his blatant grammar failures and redundancy at the start of the video?

    Can't tell if trolling, or just stupid.

    Anyways, I just found an epic, 20-minute long remix video.

  21. I have a quick question for anyone, I was just browsing this blog and saw reference to Chris's old Y2B account. Interested I went and put it into my browser and got this:
    http://www.y2bproductions.com/

    Which contained this:
    Christopher Bores is the owner of Y2B Productions. Chris Attended Ashland University for Film and Broadcasting, and has since worked at television stations, created Television Programs, Commercials, DVD’s, Instructional videos and currently regarded as a YouTube celebrity.

    Can someone tell me,
    a. Attended.. so does that mean he flunked out? I mean if I'd gone somewhere and got a degree I'd put "Got his degree of Blah Blah at..."

    b. 'worked at television stations.' Which ones?

    c. 'created Television Programs.' There names were? (also I kind of like how TV station is in lower case and TV programs is in capitals, almost as though he doesn't know how capital letters work)

    d.'Comercials, Dvd's, instructional videos.' Are these all related to IRG or are these seperate?


    I'm not sure if anyone will have any answers, but if you do plese share them with me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. ^Well, he DID make those crappy Ghost Hunters rip-offs. He even gave his own terrible DVDs good reviews... oi.

    ReplyDelete
  23. He makes references to TV stations because his megalomanic dreams involve Paranormal Investigators and The Irate Gamer Show to be broadcasted on television. Guess it's not as easy as he thought it'll be.
    And since he never corrected this statement, I presume he hasn't visited his site in years.

    (Or maybe he made this site in case he becomes a big TV celebrity and forgot to make it private or something. Whatever makes more sense to you.)

    ReplyDelete
  24. @ The Gentleman

    A: He attended Ashland but left for his Irate Gamer career. He never graduated.

    B: He didn't.

    C: As Doresh already pointed out, Haunted Investigators was supposed to get him on television but it failed.

    Truthfully, Chris has no interest in the paranormal but Jennifer (his ex) does. When he decided to dump Haunted Investigators is when she broke up with him. Finding out that he was lying to her the whole time. He played it off as her "focusing on her career" which, as usual, is only a half-truth.

    D: Chris had a YouTube channel that showed other how to work with green screen and other effects. I don't know if it's still up because it was bombarded by IG haters.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Chris, either quit, or give us another reason to hate you. Not more of this bland as all hell filler.

  26. @fattoler
    I'm just saying that he ALWAYS mentions the AVGN in a post, when one of the points of his blog was to not bring up the AVGN

  31. Why does Gottgame ignore the outrage of Bores going to E3 all the time? They have to see that this asshole clearly has no care for this medium- no wait. You know what we Metalheads call bands and other metalheads that obviously have no care for the genre or fans? "Fucking Posers". Not only is Chris a Fucking Poser, he's making his fans Fucking Posers too.

  32. @ULad

    Before this post, the last one to mention the AVGN was regarding the video where IG finally acknowledged the AVGN's existence.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Since it's possible Namco might showcast "Tekken Tag Tournament 2" and "Street Fighter x Tekken", or in Boresland "Street Fighter vs Tekken", I wonder what might happen if Bores stops by the Namco booth?

    Speaking of E3, I brought this one up a while ago on last year's E3 video, when Bores called the Korean army from "Homefront" the "Vietnamese Army". It seems Bores has this "All Asians Are Alike" thinking.

  46. You know, I wonder what Chris was like before all this.
    What if he was a nicer person?
    What if he did something different?
    What if he wasn't such a douchebag?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Fame can corrupt, but I doubt that with Bores. He never had that much fame, and he was a douchebag from his first pre-IG videos onwards.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I thought of a possible reason that it's taking so long for a new IG episode. Maybe Bores is making the IG movie?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, man, an IG movie. I'd imagine it'd have something to do with all of the characters he's ever used in an IG episode, no matter how minor, coming back and ganging up on him, with the main plot about some video game that he has to make in a deadline of a few days. It'd be full of movie and sitcom cliches as well as plenty of BLAMs and examples of bad writing.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The IG movie would be like the Family Guy movie, except remove all humor and likability(or at least what`s there).

  51. Ugh. Hideo Kojima of all people is demanding Square-enix to remake FF7...Actually, I'd prefer Hideo Freakin' Kojima to write FF7 than the morons at Square.

    Maybe He'd make Cloud's balls drop and make him and Aeris do the dirty deed so we can see that there's actually some sort of connection there instead of the "It's implied that they love each other! Just accept it!" tone that all the fucking fanboys are giving me.

    ReplyDelete
  56. @ULad

    Yeah, except your complaint was "Just once, could you have a blog post WITHOUT bringing up the AVGN." which I had refuted by pointing out the several blog entries prior to this one with no mention of the AVGN. How long in between mentions of the Nerd is irrelevant.

    But yeah, it is kind of pointless to keep going with the Bores. The whole angry reviewer thing is starting to deteriorate anyway., I feel. James Rolfe seems to want to start working with other projects, the people on tgwtg have started making jokes about the quality of their shows, and the jokes get more repetitive on every part. The reviewerpocalypse (clever, huh??) is obviously coming.

    Also, the "you're just making him more popular" argument has been done to death. Oh no, we're giving him half a penny per view! We should totally quit criticising him!

    He's probably living in a tiny apartment with a guy scruffier than Bang.

  66. This just in: Chris Bores has a Facebook page now. For real this time since he linked it from his YouTube channel.
    http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002457711297

    I'll only bring up his page if it's related to his videos. Like the following bit of info.

    On May 27th he announced the next video is almost done and it'll be around 11 minutes long. ... SEVEN MONTHS! We waited seven months for 11 minutes. Of course, since the trailer isn't out it'll go into June and be eight months. *sighs* Just wow, the laziness astounds me.

  68. News everyone! Bores just released the TRAILER for his next Irate Gamer video. Be warned though as there's a painfully stupid joke at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Bores just uploaded the trailer. Sorry Danny, looks like the non-gamer proved you wrong.
    Well the trailer shows him playing Robocop (oh revisiting a game I see. James Rolfe didn't do that yet), Evil and HAL Bores get lost in a bad green screen effect, ROB returns (hopefully better than the disasterous AVGN 100) and the datboidrew version of Tony debutes after Christopher makes a bad Rob-o-cop joke.
    Well done Chris, you've actually managed to suprise us all. I think he deserves three cheers. HIP HIP...

    There isn't a lot to say about a game you can beat in 20 minutes. I don't know about the other two though.

  77. Supposed 11 minute review + 20 minute game + Chris Bores' "style" = Shit.

  78. Oh, and if you visit the Irate Gamer's page (he actually has a legitimate one now, linked from his page) in order to view his tweets, you must be a confirmed follower. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  79. ANother thing about Bores's E3 videos that's kinda annoying is that during those Conference videos, he randomly places shots of him doing the "Bores Stare", or as DLAbaoaqu would call it, "Take a Shot!!". I mean, were those really necessary?

    ReplyDelete
  80. @Cody S.
    Oh wow.
    "Check my Twitter to see my E3 updates, but only if I let you."

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm going to take a wild guess and assume that the video where Bores teams up with SWAG doesn't count as an official episode since it's not listed in the official Irate Gamer episode guide.

    But from what I've seen in the trailer. It's going to be horrendously painful.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Good freaking gosh, he's still going on about this "new direction" bullcrap. I guess he's revisiting a game because he wanted to add those skits the were in such dire need of being in the original review. And probably because SWAG hates him now and plans to take it-okay that's too far. But still, he's probably accomplishing nothing by just revisiting a game. In fact, it'll probably be even worse than before. *Pictures Tony* Oh gosh...

    ReplyDelete
  83. Type in "Irate Gamer" and the first suggestion is "Irate Gamer Sucks"

    Congrats, man!

    ReplyDelete
  84. @BatDanNight

    Just thought i might suggest that when you inevitably write something regarding the trailer for his next "review" of "Robocop", you may want to point out the fact that he spelled "battle lines" as one word in typical irate fashion. whether that was a typo or just failure to realize the proper spelling (i'm going with the latter), i don't know. pritty stoopid if u axe meh tho.

    ReplyDelete
  85. @Legoking831
    Swag is getting wise to Mr. Bores' bullcrap? When did this happen? Could you give some details? Maybe this means he'll get kicked off of Gottgame and lose his E3 trips... It'd serve him right.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I was making up that SWAG hates him now. But I wish he did.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Crud, got my hopes up and everything... but hey, I'm with you: surely he'll realize at SOME point he could probably get someone better that the Irate Hack for his site.

    ReplyDelete
  88. So I just saw this on James Rolphe's site
    http://cinemassacre.com/2011/06/01/avgn-message/

    Basically he says that the AVGN movie has started preproduction. As a result his AVGN episodes will be coming out slower and be more basic compared to how they were lately. I have mixed feelings about this. While it's awesome that he is working on a movie (clearly a dream of his) I don't know how I feel about the fact that he would be taking time away from his show to do so.
    In the end I think this is a good thing. The movie is clearly something that he wants to do. Not just as a business venture (like almost all of his ripoffs), but because he honestly wants to have a film to his name. The movie may also breath new life into the series, which to be quite frank has not been doing to well. His episodes have been very hit or miss for a while now.
    Which brings me to the last point. Would going back to making the reviews basic really be a bad thing? Sketches and special effects do not make a good show (here that bores DO NOT). For instance the absolutely horrendous Game Glitch episode. Oh God that Gremlin pissed me off. Maybe going back to basics will actually improve the reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  89. @ArabGamer

    I agree that the recent episodes have been hit or miss, they hit for me, but that's my opinion. He clearly wants to make this movie. Let's hope it's good.

    I for one have enjoyed most of his reviews, but felt some of them were lacking.

    Besides, unlike Fred or the other youtube whores he at least deserves to have a movie. At least in my opinion.

  91. You know what's really scary about Irate Gamer's Facebook page? The fact that a very large amount of his friend's seem to be young adults... Of course they could be haters but somehow I doubt it...

    Rolfe can't talk about TMNT forever I guess.

    All joking aside, I think it's a good thing that he goes back to "basic" reviews. He really went the Bores way with his bad/forced acting, dumb skits, boring characters and special effects.

  93. Nikki fuckin' Sixx. Jfreedan (the rpg fanatic) had Asalieri's account taken down for absolutely no logical reason. Oh, there are reasons, but not good ones!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Youtube says that Asalieri's account was taken down because of multiple third-party copyright infringement notifications, including ETF Films, Carey Martell, and uh... Carey Martell...

    ReplyDelete
  95. God damnit. They had no valid reason to go after Asalieri. Jfreedan has the biggest ego this side of the universe.

    ReplyDelete
  96. All these people who use copyright material in their videos complain that people are using their copyright material to get them banned... what a bunch of fucknuts. Bores is still around despite his many copyright violations, yet people have had videos removed and accounts banned for merely mentioning Irate Gamer.

    The whole story is that jfreedan called out Roo of Clan of the grey wolf fame for his review of a jrpg. Jfreedan called Roo racist for the term and said that Roo called out the "ant jrpg movement" that he started (By the way, he fucking didn't start it), and that anyone using the term "jrpg" was racist.

    Asa (being a friend of Roo) made a reply to Jfreedan's video opening with him poking fun at him. after that video (with Jfreedan constantly trolling him) Asa made another where he very reasonably asked Carey to recall his video, post an apology, and reprsent his argument more politely. Jfreedan ignored this and repeatedly sent hateful comments to Asa on his videos before blocking him.

    Earlier this week, Asa posted two more videos, one is a video ripped from Jfreedan's video where he goes for a jog, except with a song from the show Kids in the hall called "running faggot" playing over. You can guess what happened there. The second was a video response to him since Jfreedan blocked him, thus stopping him from replying to any PM's. It was disproving allegations of slander and harrassment. Jfreedan was also threatening to bring him to court and said something about Asa insulting his military record...which he did not. Here's what the fuckbucket posted on his youtube page but pulled it down almost immediately.

    "Subscribers, Asa has been harrassing me for a month now. He has continued to upload videos to harrass and slander me. He has continued encouraging his subs to do so as well. I am now taking action against him. He has a flawed understanding of the how the DMCA works and confuses free speech with a right to harrass and lie. If you are tired of his antics on Youtube I suggest flagging his homophobic and hateful comments that violate the community guidelines."

    I think we have a bigger ego than Bores on our hands. At least bores doesn't have the IG parody accounts taken down, he just ignores them!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Wow, sending his minions to do the dirty work for him, way to go KLibertyJohn.

    But I think Asa can get his channel back on if the DMCA claims are bogus, which they are.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Asa's last video was mirrored (or reuploaded by someone else, whatever.)

    ReplyDelete
  100. Oh fuck no! I liked Asa's videos. Goddamnit I fucking hate youtube. Both Bores and Freedan use copyrighted, but because youtube sucks the cock of anyone bringing ad revenue they ignore it. I watched Roo's Lufia 2 review (a freaking awesome game, one of my favorites for the SNES). It was a good review, hell all of the 16 bit gems are pretty good. Fuck you Freedan, I hope you get herpes.

    ReplyDelete
  101. @Samurai. I think that might be asalieri himself.

    ReplyDelete
  102. So it's official, JFreedan is worst than a combination of Bores, NC17, and "2009" Spax3.

    ReplyDelete
  103. @ArabGamer

    No, I think Asa is a bit more creative than having his username flat out "Jfreedansucks". He'd make a more clever name like Pissed Jose.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Okay, I'm starting to think IG has become a troll. This is a direct quote from his Youtube page.

    "Welcome, You have stumbled Upon the The Irate Gamer Channel Featuring the Irate Gamer Show As well as a Slew of others, All Written, Produced, and Edited, by the genius mind of Chris Bores.
    Be sure to check out the other spin off shows like History of Video Games, Irate the 80's, Haunted Investigators and more!
    Be sure to subscribe. I try to release new videos weekly. (sometimes I fail at doing so, but hey, it's the effort that counts right?)
    Note - Understand that I get hundreds of emails a day and I cannot possibly read and reply to them all. Please do not take offense if I don't write back. I'm very busy with videos and production as well as with my personal life, so I have a few people help manage the volume of mail that I get."

    I copy pasted, so those are all his errors.

  105. jfreedan just got 2 more channels taken down. It seems he is planning a censorship frenzy.
    Yes, you can plan a frenzy.

    Yeah, I saw that vid a little earlier. Asa is taking it all in stride which is awesome.

  111. You know, when Bores goes to E3, I expect a fist fight. When I go to a concert and I see someone who is clearly there to hate the band, another dude is gonna instigate a brawl.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I wouldn't mind seeing Bores get some sense knocked into him. Barring that seeing the shit get knocked out of him should be just as much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  113. @ The Fedora'd Samurai & ArabGamer

    Hopefully it'd get captured on tape so we could see some of Bores's martial arts skills in a real-life situation.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Well, it's the end of the week...

    ReplyDelete
  115. @Zinger314

    ...And Bores' didn't upload a review. What else is new?

    JFreedan caused Asa's account to be taken down due to copyright infringement. God, his ego is equivalent to that of Christian Weston Chandler's ego.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I think Bores is just uploading his new review right now.

    The reason why I say that is because when I kept searching the Irate Gamer, the video count is at 203, and when I check again, then it's been going up to 204. I think that might be the sign that his new video is being uploaded.

    ReplyDelete
  117. @Blueluigi

    Nah, he hasn't done it yet. I'd know. I have him staring at me from the "recommended channels" side bar on my subscription page.

    ReplyDelete
  118. @Cody

    Already? You know, I'm quite impressed by his relatively more frequent uploads. Then again, this doesn't affect their quality.

    ReplyDelete
  119. @Arthur

    Trust me. It's shit.

    11 minutes of shitty jokes(some of which were used in the last Robocop review), mispronouncing ED-209, and the "story" he's been hyping is beyond retarded. Oh, and Wise Sage actually talks in this one. Respect for him, but I wish he would get away from Bores, though.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Wait, wasn't it Shadow OVERlord?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Saying it's bad is an understatement. I think less than 20% of the video is gameplay footage.

    But atleast Bores found a new explosion effect! :D

    ReplyDelete
  122. Who cares if most of the video wasn't gameplay? The storyline parts are where the narm is.

    To be honest, I kinda liked it. Don't get me wrong, it's not GOOD, not even by IG's standards, but it was highly amusing to see him try and fail to write an "epic" storyline. And the Wise Sage is awesome; it's just too bad he didn't get any truly memetic lines this time.

  123. On the upside, we have a new RaR!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Man, every single video I can find that's either opposed to or giving their own opinion on Jfreedan attacking Asa has been taken down. It's like a freaking ego infused obliteration of free speech.

  134. Bores dressed as the AVGN at 10:51

    no, not with teh blue shirt, he DID USE A WHITE SHIRT, and runned the same way AVGN did in some of his videos he runned. lik ethe Brawl video.

    ReplyDelete
  135. @Gatuca

    That's it. Bores has hit a new low. Other than his overuse of pointless characters, explaining of his jokes twice, crappy special effects, complaints of the game's difficulty and ending, and references that contributed absolutely nothing, that skit is where Chris Bores jumped the shark for the thousandth time. WHAT THE FUCK?! THIS IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE WOULD EXPECT FROM A PARODY! DOES CHRIS BORES HAVE A FETISH FOR DRESSING UP AS THE NERD AND THINKS THIS IS THE RIGHT TIME TO EXPRESS IT WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING?

  136. I like how the stinger at the end advertised Irate the 80s when it's been one year to the day since the most recent episode.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Bores doesn't care anymore. He's gone down to troll level. Let's see how long his fans keep up with it.

    ReplyDelete
  138. That. Was. Painful.

    The review was pretty bad and like always, he bitched about the most minuscule things in the game. I mean, it's not a classic by any means, but it's a decent side-scroller. Bitching about RoboCop not being able to jump was the dumbest statement I heard in the review (did he even jump once in the movies ?).

    But the skits ... My god were they bad. Seriously Bores, just start an IG sitcom/soap-opera if you want to do that kind of shit. What's the point of putting those lame-ass stories in a VIDEO GAME REVIEW ??? You think your brain-dead fans care about that and are like "Ooh I can't wait for the next episode of "Annoying characters doing clichéd stuff"" ?

    ... Anyway, can't wait for Batdan's article.

    ReplyDelete
  139. You know, if that little thing around the 11 minute mark is supposed to be a "Take That" against James, I must show you these.

  140. "Watch part 1 first"?! That's just your 7up review! It has nothing to do with Robocop! Don't pretend like this is Lost!

    So let's see: He used all his "awesome" characters again, made another R.O.B. pun (reminding us of his Aladdin review) and didn't understand that Robocop is a slow-moving cyborg following directives (NOT a crazy ass cyborg shooting everywhere).

    And yes, that looked like James. WTF Oo ?

    ReplyDelete
  141. I couldn't find it at first but now that I did...wow he really did dress up as the AVGN

    ReplyDelete
  142. I hate how his fans keep on saying "OH I LIKE BOTH AND IG LIKES DOING THIS SO STFU!!!!"
    Well if he likes doing it, why did it take seven months for one video?!

    ReplyDelete
  143. Well, it's been about 2 months since the 3DS launch, so we should look out for a "review" of it from the Bores.
