It's been almost four years since IG released his first DVD, a rush job released to beat the AVGN's first DVD. Did the first DVD do that well? I don't know, Bores never brought it up. He never mentioned selling out of stock, or needing to restock, or any implication that the DVD was doing well. I figured that when he did a contest to give away free copies, he was overstocked and nobody was buying.
So with that assumption, I wondered "why would you even consider making another one?"
News of the next DVD was sparse, Bores would sometimes mention he's "hard at work" on it but most saw it as "reassurance" to the few fans he has.
A while ago, he mentioned he was working on THREE DVDs. IG volume 2 and 3, and a separate DVD for History of Video Games (making it a completely different series). Again, I thought it was more reassurance.
On July 20th 2011, this updated appeared on his site.
I must get at least 10 emails a week asking about the status of the dvd's. Well finally I can tell you they are coming! And not just one volume, but 2! This double dose of Volume 2 and 3 will be here in August!
Been talking to some interesting people and more great news coming soon!
As usual, he has to remind us "he get lotsa e-mails" to ensure he's still popular (HA!)
Why release two volumes? Why not release one big volume? I have a feeling it's money-related.
August huh? We'll see...
What does he mean by "interesting people"? That's an extremely vague term. Is he trying to be "mysterious"?
So the DVD is set for next month. I put "soon" in quotation marks because we know of IG's habit of never keeping his promises. If it does come out next month, I'll be surprised.
I imagine any DVD exclusive extras will be uploaded to YouTube or other sites shortly after release.
Nearly four years, good lord that's lazy. That's all I really have to say about the DVD. I can't believe he hasn't learned his lesson from his first pile of crap barely selling.
On a slightly different subject, IG will never reach 100 episodes. Hell, at this rate we'd be lucky to see 50.
How many episodes does he officially have? Let's see.
Neo and History of Video Games don't count. Two-part episodes released the same day count as one episode.
30 episodes. Wow... And that's counting the Retro Mini "commercial" (normally I wouldn't).
That's all for now.
