Less Effort Than The The Eye Creatures, It's "Video Game Roundup/Rundown"

*clap clap clap* Bravo Chris. You have found another way to be as lazy as possible with your videos. I am stunned, absolutely stunned at the lack of effort.
Remember IG’s 3-in-1 video? Yeah, that heinous excuse of a video where he only played an hour of each game, showed a severe lack of Tekken knowledge, and even after three years still didn’t know Turtles in Time was an Arcade game. Well, he’s doing it again! This time he’s making a “new series” out of it. It’s like he hears the problems people have with his videos, and instead of trying to improve on them he only makes them worse.

Ugh, so here’s “Video Game Roundup”, or is it “Video Game Rundown”? He calls it “Roundup” in the video but the title card says “Rundown”. That’s a good sign, he can’t even get the title to his own series right!

0:02 - 0:15: So why is IG doing something this half-assed? As usual, he claims he gets a “ton of requests” to review new games. The same reason he gave for the 3-in-1 video. Look, if you did get requests (which I highly doubt you do) then you need to honor them. You can’t just get them out of the way and expect people to be happy. You need to dedicate time and effort into giving the people what they want. On the other end, you can choose NOT to do certain requests. It’s that simple. But screw logic, Chris needs his Blip muneez!

0:16 - 0:42: The first game is Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters. Why did he hold up the box then put up an image of the cover off to the side? We’re not blind, we can see the box just fine.
He says he found the movie lackluster but finds the game pretty solid. Say, here’s another bit of laziness. All the movies on Chris’ Top 10 Summer Movies list have come out now, and he didn’t review a single one. What was the point of even making the list? Off-topic I know but this is a really short video.

“Now I haven’t played this game for too long yet…” And this is exactly what I’m talking about. You only talked about this to get the “request” out of the way, not even bothering to play through the entire game! I have a feeling he didn’t get past the first level…
“The further I advance in the game, the more attack power-ups I unlock” No shit Sherlock, you progress through the game you get stronger! Since you have a such a massive hard-on for God of War, this style should be familiar. I’m convinced, he only played this for an hour.

0:43 - 1:03: Game #2 is Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.
He asks if this game offers anything new that we haven’t seen before, he says “they do a lot”. Okay, like what? What does this game offer that I haven’t seen in the first two Lego Star Wars, or Lego Batman, or Lego Harry Potter?
“There’s a lot of new offerings to keep you occupied and I just had a lot of fun…… with this title.” So you liked the game, can you tell me why? I want to know what “new offerings” there are. Guess what, he doesn’t fucking tell us. He just moves on to the next game. This is poor reviewing! Even if it’s not a serious review, you have to have depth! You can’t just say two lines and expect people to buy that! Especially something as vague as “it has new stuff!”
By the way, does Bores sound really awkward in this video? There’s a lot more pauses than usual.

1:04 - 1:46: Game #3 is Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. He acknowledges that this came out “some time ago”. He’s correct, it came out last year! It’s sad when the most recent game in this video is Green Lantern. Lego Star Wars III came out in March, and the fourth game came out in February.

“Now this game has upsides, and it has downsides” … He wrote that. He put that into his script, recorded it, and put it into his video. How does he have fans? How the fuck does anyone find this legit? I’m calling it, this is one of the worst videos he’s ever done. No thought, no effort, no care, no consideration, just pure laziness. You should be ashamed Chris Bores, GotGame should punish you for releasing something so poorly made.

*sigh* So, what does he say about the game. He felt it was repetitive, he didn’t like the camera angles (oh hey, he actually showed an example), and he felt Ultimate Spider-Man wasn’t unique enough.
He then proceeds to gush about the Noir Spider-Man stages because they use stealth, wanting an entire game of just Noir Spidey. Wow, if you loved that then Metal Gear Solid, Tenchu, Splinter Cell, Sly Cooper, Syphon Filter, Thief and Assassin’s Creed will blow your mind. Yeah, I can tell Bores has never played a stealth game.
EDIT: And Arkham Asylum, which the Noir segments shamelessly copied. Thanks to Deliverance115 for reminding me.

1:47 - 2:17: The final game is Mario Sports Mix. He found the game terrible.
“This game gets very very repetitive” Like every other sports game ever?
“I can’t believe Nintendo would release such an under polished game” So are you going to tell us what you mean by that? Nope, he moves right onto unlockable characters. Why bother at this point?
“Don’t waste your money, and if you did then I feel for you man” It’s too late to try relating to the audience, you’ve lost all your chances.

And the video ends with him signing off, saying there will be more in the future. NO! No more! I am just baffled that he did this. Does he think this is good? What’s worse is that there’s someone in the GotGame comments that praised it. Are standards that fucking low? Are people so willing to take a bunch of short, poorly-written, and vague game reviews and accept it as quality. I fear for the future everyone.

This wasn’t even a joke review like “X in 5 Seconds” or “50 Games in 3 minutes”, he wanted people to take this seriously. This is why YouTube and GotGame are his only safe havens, outside of those two sites everyone considers him a total fool. *sighs* That’s all for now everyone.

  2. Wow, this is worse then the 3-in-1 video. Not only did I learn NOTHING about the games he talked about, but I feel like my intelligences was insulted. 4 games in 2 minutes and 17 seconds? Really? That's not even a review! He's just going "Here's a game. I liked it. Next one". He clearly doesn't care.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Ugh... Simply painful. I mean, on top of the absolutely atrocious quality of these "reviews", he finds a way to diss two awesome things I enjoyed this summer. The Green Lantern movie was way better than I thought it would be, and Bores of all people has no place calling ANYTHING "lackluster". On top of that, he insults Mario Sports Mix, which my brother and I have played for hours, even going so far as to acknowledge it as "The best Square Enix game we've played in a while (which is rather sad, really, but still)". Then again, Bores probably doesn't have any friends to play it with, so he most likely just played single player for twenty minutes (much like he did with Mario & Sonic), then declared "DIS SUKS" and called it a day. And again, no right to call anything ever "unpolished". And to think, with his recent 80's videos he had almost become mediocre.

  4. The only positive that I can find in this video is that there are no horrible jokes to be found. The only good thing, and it isn't even an incentive to watch the video. Pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  5. so, spiderman got the most time with 42 seconds. i was wondering how you'd squeeze a game review into such a short time, and it turns out you can't. big shocker there. [/sarcasm]

    ReplyDelete
  6. So Bores went from "OK" (Micro Machines video) to "I'd rather watch *insert horrible movie/show/video* a hundred times than watch a second of this garbage" (This) in around a month from each video.

    And to think the latter rating applies to 4/5 of his videos...

  7. Wathch his subscriber number decrease even more this vid is uploaded to his channel on youtube he only has 143,020 subscribers left watch him lose almost all of those after this vid is put on youtube

    He froze his subscriber count. He probably has a few more than 50.000 subs.

  9. @Arthur Arneiro

    What do you mean he froze his subscriber count? Do you mean he froze so it could look like he has a lot of subscribers? If so what an idiot.

  10. Part of the description on Chris' new YT video
    New episode of the IG show should be finished by next week (cross your fingers) in the meantime, i threw together a short video (should be up shortly) at http://www.gotgame.com for a quick rundown video of 4 new games.
    Yeah cross your fingers that IG's computer doesn't "crash" despite the fact he'll still be able to upload dildo contest video in that time period.
    Oh and yeah it quite literally seems that you just threw the quite literally short video together. And 4 NEW games? Only one of those games is new. I wouldn't be calling games that are more than 2 months old new.

    ReplyDelete
  11. @TTBurger88

    Yeah, that's basically what I heard.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Bores would probably have his Robocop 2 episode done by now if he did not spend his time "working" on NEO episodes and contests. This is not a video to hold his fans over. I think he just using this "new series" as an excuse to delay his next regular episode of Irate Gamer. He probably does not have much done for the episode than he should by now.

    As for the new series, it was not quite as bad his 3-in-1 review but that's not saying much. This episode also took no effort to make. Once again, he admitted he spent little time playing a game for the "review," but, of course not for good intentions. That is not to say he has to play through an entire game, though preferred, but it should be required for him to play for good amount of time...let's say 8 hours at the least. It is no wonder he cannot make a decent review. He barely has any content to work with. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Bores has a few fans that subscribe to him. Aside from that, he only has people who only subscribed for his stupid contest and people who subscribe just because they're entertained by how bad he is.
    This video had so little content that there really isn't anything to laugh at either. He's got to throw in some Boreisms if he wants to keep the bulk of subscribers, those just watching him make an ass of himself.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow...that video was just...awful! Truly, truly awful!

    This is about as lazy as any video game reviewer could possibly get! He barely talked about the gameplay of any of the games! I think this will probably top your yearly "worst IG moments" list.

    Wow...did that video suck!

    ReplyDelete
  15. It seemed like he ad-libbed the entire video, or had poorly memorized it from a script. He can't even act as a neutral reviewer, let alone an "angry" one!

    ReplyDelete
  16. He has a vid up on Youtube claiming his DVD has sold out. Is he lying or did he just make a handful?

    Theres also a stupid contest to get his viewers to spam his comments, have a look because they are all flagging each other for spam so theirs is the only comment.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wouldn't it make more sense if each game got its own video? That way he can release new videos more frequently, doesn't have to think about the games he's going to review (if these were really requests), and he can earn 4 times the ad revenue.
    But then again, this would probably require him to actually PLAY the games for more than an hour...

    The Spider-Man "review" feels really out of place. Why not take a newer game, like the Almighty Thor?

    His look at the new Star Wars Lego game makes it look like he NEVER played it. It's likely that he just assumed "It's the newest one, so it HAS to have new stuff! What a brilliant review!". He could've talked about ANY game and it'd made as much sense!
    I think he hit a new low. You can't possibly get any lazier than this.

    ReplyDelete
  18. When the video hits YouTube, tell me.

    I want to see the comments blindly praising him, despite the video being utter garbage.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What a stupid video. Can't believe he had the nerve to include a Mario game. I've never played Sports Mix but why do I get the feeling it's better than Bores says?

    Oh, and he did review a movie off his top 10. He just reviewed Green Lantern in this video. At least in his mind.

    What do you think it would take for Bores to start producing actually good content?

    ReplyDelete
  20. @polygonsandsprites

    for bores to start producing good talent, he'd need three things. Technical knoledge, a strong work ethic, and talent. He could get the technical knowledge at school if he would actually finish his studies. His work ethic obviously sucks, as you can see from thus video. Unfortunately his lack of talent can not be fixed.

  30. Not only is this incredibly lazy, it also proves that Chris Bores doesn't give a shit about making his videos better, nor does he give a shit about his fans. All he cares about is money.

    It wouldn't surprise me if GotGame were money-grapping whores as well.

    Considering how a certain other YT parnter can get away with giving his vids titles, descriptions and thumbnails that have NOTHING to do with the actual video, I don't think YT cares about anything their partners do...

  41. "Alright, We're back in business, DVD's are back in stock! so make sure you get them if you've been waiting.
    Also a small update on the next episode. Its looking more like it'll be finished next weekend. Certain parts just aren't flowing as smoothly as I'd hoped, so I've been doing some reshoots and rearranging of segments. But overall, should be a good episode!
    Robo-o-cop pt 2 coming soon!"
    Robo-o-cop, are you FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!

    ReplyDelete
  42. i've checked with DVD manufacturing companies. usually DVD orders take a week to a week and a half to make, before they ship. the average is 8 days. bores said it'd take about two weeks to get the DVDs back in stock, which seemed about right.

    then it actually only took 4 days... yeah, he was lying about the whole "sold out" thing.

    in an unrelated topic, steve jobs just resigned as CEO of apple.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Going by the DVD in Charlie's hands, it looks like Bores used DVD-Rs and a laserprinter to make his own DVDs. Just like the last one.

    But yeah, I could tell he was lying about being sold out.

    ReplyDelete
  44. didn't he also claim that the DVDs were professionally pressed?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well, he also claimed they sold out...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Well, Bores considers himself a professional, and he probably pressed the printout onto the DVD-R himself, so that's likely the extent of the truth regarding them being "professionally pressed."

    As for his next episode, I sure hope he manages to get the name of the game right in the script, because that's the second time he fucked it up (ROB the Robot Part 2, Robo-o-cop).

  49. I just realized that those 4 days started on saturday, and the manufacturing companies typically don't include the weekends.
    so, bores apparently had his new batch of DVDs manufactured and shipped in two days flat.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love how Bores has to include the word Popular in the title of his website. Is he just trying to convince himself or people who haven't used the internet before?

  56. I just saw James' new episode. It was pretty good. I just wonder, did he really break the NWC carts or were they just fakes (I'd go with the latter but it looked real convincing).

    ReplyDelete
  57. @JohnNintendoNerd

    He didn't. At the very end, he showed the scene of the carts broken, as well as the original carts intact.

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Cody S. Yes I know that but like he said those carts were rare so why he would break stuff he could have made money off of is beyond me. I suppose that the golden cart probably TLoZ and the grey one was some random NES game (preferably MvsDH).

    ReplyDelete
  59. @Derek

    Well one thing's for sure: They both really suck! Ha ha ha... That was terrible, I know.

    ReplyDelete
  60. when he breaks open the gold cart, you can see the battery. The NWC didn't have a battery, but both zelda games did. so yeah, it was probably zelda cart.

    i like it when james and pat work together, they compliment each other's styles very well.

    ReplyDelete
  61. So I guess James is posting AVGN videos on a random bases, and not one every first week of the month.

    ReplyDelete
  62. @vicviper592

    Yeah, he stopped with the monthly schedule after the Spielberg episode so he could concentrate on his movie.

    ReplyDelete
  63. And he also mentions in the description of the Mortal Kombat 9 youtube video that the next regular Irate Gamer episode is almost done and should be up next weekend.

    Hmm... you know... I'd be suprised if Bores actually does release it next weekend which would be about 2-3 months since his last episode.

  76. I'm being completely serious when I say this: I think there's a chance that Chris may have sort of mental illness; something that prevents him from focusing which is why he sucks too hard at games to play them.

    He has motivation alright.
    It's just that he's not really doing anything significant.

    ReplyDelete
  88. it's obviously he doesn't know anything about security. probably used an easy-to-guess password, and/or keeps using the same one.
    if the hacker was actually able to crack a strong password from him, he'd just as easily hack bore's account.

    ReplyDelete
  89. @Shaolin Dave

  96. Huh. I've just been thinking, and I've noticed that Chris seems to have a lot in common with the infamous Chris-Chan. I mean, for example:
    - Bad Writing
    - Hypocrisy
    - Poorly Done videos
    - Huge Ego
    - No proof or elaboration to what he's saying.
    - Thinks he has more fans than he truly has.
    - Hates his fans and will ban constructive criticism, though this one could also apply to SpoonyOne (No hate intended).

Ignoring all the extremely nitpicky complaints you make about IG's videos, I find hilarious how you actually run an entire blog based on someone you hate. It just screams "I'm a pathetic loser with no friends" Really It's like you obsessed with the man.

    Who cares, you obviously just going to delete my comment because you'll have no good rebuttal."comment 2:"@Entwistle905: LOL So it's pathetic they way I defend IG, yet Batdannight creating an entire blog dedicated to some he hates isn't? Get your head out of his ass.
    Honestly I don't care that he hates IG. Mainly the fact that he created a whole Blog dedicated to how bad IG is. How can you defend someone who does something so stupid like that?
    There's alot of People I don't like, But you don't see me creating an entire blog dedicated to that person.
    I'm not even mad about the blog, It's just so hilarious that he decides to waste time doing something so sad.comment 3:lol looks like somone got pwned by IG. :)

    what was that you posted on your blog concerning IG's DVDs? Oh yeah, "let's laugh at Chris' rampant egotism as he thinks this crap will sell out"

    And what's this? IG's DVDs in fact did sell out.

    lol seriously dude, just give up your stupid blog and save yourself from further embarrassment.

  104. like I said before, it takes 4-8 days to manufacture DVDs before they ship. Bores had them manufactured, shipped, and in his hands in 2 days.
    So, there's two possibilities. One, the DVD manufacturer screwed over all their other customers for Bores's stupid little disc, and they're located close enough that they decided to personally deliver it before the plastic cooled. The other possibility is that Bores lied about the whole thing.

    My word verification was "judging".

    when I hit "edit" to say that my word verification changed to "c snores". Wow.

    Are you kidding? Irate Gamer is nothing like Chris Chan.
    - Bad Writing? He has a professional making of video games DVD information from actual researchers and people who's been around.

    - Hypocrisy? Now you're pulling shit out of your ASS.

    - Poorly done videos? Nope. Try again faggot, IG has professionaly made videos.

    - Huge Ego? Real men have big egos like DUKE

    - No proof or elaboration? He's been gaming for over 20 years, he knows the ins and outs of what he's talking about.

    - Thinks he has more fans than he truly does?
    He has 140,000+ fans. He doesn't hate his fans, he always replies or talks to them. He doesn't ban constructive criticism, but rather stupid, undeserved, and constant bickering.

  109. @IG fanboy who is most likely Chucky

    -Bad Writing: Kool Aid Man rising from the dead for no reason, R.O.B being found in IG's closet and being rebuild from ashes, "Somebody call 911 because I was R.O.Bbed", R.O.B.-o-cop, the list goes on...
    -Hypocrisy: Gaming for 20 years, doesn't know that TMNT: TiT was originally an arcade game. Super C is too hard, Kirby's Epic Yarn is too easy.
    -Poorly Done Videos: Constant overuse of green-screen and Particle Illusion, has no schedule, etc.
    -Huge Ego: 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. The genius mind of Chris Bores.
    -No proof or elaboration: His rundown video is a perfect example.
    -Thinks he has more fans than he actually has: Subscribers =/= Fans. Most people think Bores is funny not because he tells good jokes, but because he is a joke. He blocked one of my accounts for criticism about how he pronounced Ninja Gaiden (which is acceptable if you're a little kid or not a long time gamer). The other, I do not know. Also, "I'm better than you. You are a nobody, deal with it, bro". Yes, Chris is indeed nice to his fans.

    Give it up already. Whatever you have to say about Chris being a good AVGR, we have an even more legit arguement as to why he's not.

  123. @JohnNintendoNerd
    Real actors use green screens and particle illusions all the time. IG's stories aren't supposed to be a realistic or top-notch either. It's about the game reviews that count. A story in Chris Bores' videos are like a story in a porn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not that important. My father has been gaming before the IG was even born and he doesn't know all these generic trivial facts.

    You don't explain anything about Chris' ego besides the description on his channel. Duke Nukem has a big ego and he's way cooler than the AVGN. The Irate Gamer's supposed lack of fans could be said about the AVGN as well. James has about 400,000 subscribers, but how many of them are actually his fans? Your comment to him about Ninja Gaiden was also probably rude and not a hint. Also, constructive criticism is supposed to be brief and friendly, not "YOU SUCK."

    You are all just so biased to hate Chris Bores that you all just cannot accept that maybe he's better than what you think. Stop being so stubborn and give Chris a chance.


    By the way, I'm not a "Charlie." I'm a fan of the Irate Gamer that thinks you're all wasting your time on this unnecessary blog devoted to hating someone.

    ReplyDelete
  127. @antiyonder

    I see where you're getting at, but Chris has a lot more correct information than wrong facts in the History of Video Games. Besides, we all make mistakes, don't we?

    ReplyDelete
  128. @alternatespellingofjamie: Perhaps, but a documentary is suppose to be a reliable source of information. Getting the facts straight should be top priority.

    Yes we do make mistakes and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. But "refusing to learn from" a mistake is, however, bad.

    Now once Ralph Baer's statements were given, Chris should have done one of two things:

    A. Redo The Odyssey video with more correct info, or,

    B. At least put subtitles in the video giving the more accurate info.

    But whenever someone points out an error, I have yet to see Chris trying to correct it or make the effort to do better in presenting facts.

  129. @alternatespellingofjamie
    Okay, here's an example of Chris's attitude. When a youtube user called utuber377 Pm'd Bores a few times. 2 PMs ended up showing that Chris doesn't appreciate his fans as much as you think.

    Anyway, here are Chris' problems in a nutshell:
    Has terrible gaming skills, is an unpleasable douche, makes constant spelling errors, is way too lazy, uses contests as a cheap way to get subscribers an ad revenue, and tries to pass off his work as professional.

    Now you might be thinking "Is that it?". Yes, actually. But I listed six problems with him, and they aren't minor problems, either! They're major problems, and are present in most of his videos! If those are your standards of quality, then I genuinely feel for you.

    ReplyDelete
  134. @Arthur Arneiro

    Terrible Gaming Skills: How is that a major problem? How does not being the greatest at video games ruin the quality of his show?

    Makes Constant Spelling Errors: There are barely any spelling errors in his videos. Even then, how does that affect the quality of them? Is not being able to spell a word going to ruin an entire video for you?

    Is an unpleasable douche: How? You don't elaborate on this and it's a very vague statement.

    Is way too lazy: ^

    Uses contests as a cheap way to get subscribers and ad revenue: He's never specifically stated he only does this to get ad revenue or subscribers. Writing "pick me" in the comments is simply his way of picking a fan of his to give the prize too.

    Tries to pass his work off as professional: His videos are professionally made. He went to film school and being a film maker is his profession.

    None of the flaws you mentioned I would consider major flaws. Some of them aren't even real "flaws" at all. The ones that are in his videos have only happened in a few videos out of his over 200 videos. Oh, and insulting me over my age? You really want to say that to someone who's probably older than you?

    Terrible Gaming Skills: How is that a major problem? How does not being the greatest at video games ruin the quality of his show?

    It has a huge impact on the quality of the show. He claims to have been playing video games for 20 years... yet just about every game he's played, he deliberately sucked at them. For classic games, he can't beat them without using a Game Genie while with modern games, he only plays for an hour and calls it a full review.

    Oh, and he had absolutely no idea what Tekken was until the 3-in-1 review. Sounds like he REALLY knows everything about video games.

    Makes Constant Spelling Errors: There are barely any spelling errors in his videos. Even then, how does that affect the quality of them? Is not being able to spell a word going to ruin an entire video for you?

    Not necessarily, but if this is supposed to be a PROFESSIONAL series, then he should make sure his spelling is correct. Like if he spells something wrong, then it would at least be a good idea to do a spell check on that one.

    Is an unpleasable douche: How? You don't elaborate on this and it's a very vague statement.

    In his reviews, he's never satisfied with the game either way. Like in his Ghosts and Goblins review, he complains that the game is too hard while in Kirby's Epic Yarn, he complains that it's too easy. Then there is his Aladdin review where he complains about 2 stages that have nothing to do with the movie whatsoever while earlier in the video, he was complaining about Abu following you around.

    Is way too lazy: ^

    The subject of this blog post is the greatest example of that. How in the world does anybody pass off someone talking about a game for 45 seconds a full review. This is the lowest form of reviewing anybody can get.

    Uses contests as a cheap way to get subscribers and ad revenue: He's never specifically stated he only does this to get ad revenue or subscribers. Writing "pick me" in the comments is simply his way of picking a fan of his to give the prize too.

    Even if he never specifically stated he does this to get ad revenue and subscribers doesn't mean that's the way it is. After all of the times he's revealed to people that he does this for the money, then it's pretty obvious that this is what he does these contests for.

    Tries to pass his work off as professional: His videos are professionally made. He went to film school and being a film maker is his profession.

    Just because he tries to use a ton of special effects and green screen in his videos does not make him a professional. Besides, a lot of these green screen and effects look really cheap. Especially all of the stock explosions he uses over and over.

    None of the flaws you mentioned I would consider major flaws. Some of them aren't even real "flaws" at all. The ones that are in his videos have only happened in a few videos out of his over 200 videos. Oh, and insulting me over my age? You really want to say that to someone who's probably older than you?

    They are real flaws, and I just explained why they are. They didn't just happen in a few of his videos, they happened all the time. Plus, anybody who's not retarded and are around my age would know just how terrible Bores' videos are.

    Oh, and really. I don't count all of his 200+ videos as real videos. Seriously, how many real videos did Bores actually make not counting his contests, trailers, previews, and even that short Video Game Roundup video that he did.

    ReplyDelete
  137. @alternatespelling

    Terrible Gaming Skills: Because you know, having to resort to cheating on the first level of Super C makes you a very credible reviewer.

    Makes Constant Spelling Errors: OK, I shouldn't have called that "spelling errors", it's more like "grammar errors". "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde 'princible'", capitalizing and decapitalizing words randomly (really bad for your credibility if you claim to be a proffesional),"This game is the perfect predecessor to SMB"

    Is an unpleasable douche: "Ghosts N' Goblins sucks for being too hard, Kirby's Epic Yarn sucks for being too easy". "Sonic Unleashed sucks! They should go back to the basics! Sonic 4 sucks! It wasn't refreshing!".

    Is way too lazy: Do I even have to elaborate on this one? Alright, want your explanation? He takes forever to upload an IG video, and it's normally less than 5 minutes long, and full of vague statements about the game. His videos speak for themselves on this one.

    Uses contests as a cheap way to get subscribers and ad revenue: He knows that this will cause a massive spamming of comments, which give him money. Plus the whole part about having to be subscribed to him in order to enter just screams "Crap, my last video sucked so people are unsubscribing. It's time to sucker some in by doing a contest!" to me.

    Tries to pass his work off as professional: Because when I think of "professional" I think of someone who uses DVD-Rs for his DVDs and has a fake company.

    Also, I'm not making fun of your age. It's just that it surprises me whenever I see an IG fan that's older than 10. Oh yeah, and I'm 12 years old, by the way.

    Sonic 4 really wasn't because it was nothing like the classic games. It rehashed the level themes of Sonic 1 and 2. But it played NOTHING like the classics. The lack of physics proves that. I'd say it plays more like Sonic Rush without a boost button rather than the physics and momentum based gameplay of Sonic 1-3&k.

  139. The Irate Gamer released a new trailer. Oh, boy, his RoboCop review was so bad I even commentated on it. And now he's gonna release the second part. I will give him credit for one thing, at least we don't have to wait half a year this time.

    He usually releases the trailer a few days before the actual episode. I just hope the next review will be better than the RoboCop review. Wishful thinking, I know. The only review of his that I found good is his Predator review.

    Well, we'll see how bad his next review will be when it arrives.

    You view him as a professional, and yet you don't think he should make an effort to have as little errors as possible? If we were talking a couple of errors every once in a while I could get behind your stance.

    See, Chris isn't being rediculed for making mistakes. He's being rediculed for both:
    A. Making no effort to improve.
    B. Acknowledge that he's made mistakes.

    Now if he would be more upfront about his mistakes and try to improve, he would be getting some respect. Effort is all that's being expected of him.

  163. Darn. I knew I was forgeting something. Now a big example of his errors are mispronouncing of words that are extremely simple to pronounce like Jaws/Jawls or flaws/flawls.

    Pretty much any word rhyming with them is mispronounced when he speaks them. It's not like trying to say Mxyzptlk (which is actually easy to get wrong). These are words which anyone could say correctly without even trying.

  164. Long time reader, first time poster. I could see that there is a flame war wanted to sizzle by an IG fanboy. Just don't bite on it, invoke Wil Wheaton's Law.

    I feel the same way facts are brought out over fanboys and I cannot help it that they are being hostile to me, well in terms of other topic like online gaming and console gaming. IG is such an ass, yeah, he's like the fusion of Paris Hilton(stretch huh?) and Kim Kardashian of gaming. He's all air, no dedication, no talent, none, as in na-da, zero!

    This might sound silly, because I'm such a rookie here, but, we could just "eliminate" their posts right, you know, as if they are just glitches in the game that we could reset and start over again as if nothing happened.

    Speaking of fanboyism, I have that on my blog, but it tackles about fanboyism in our country, and oh, thank goodness IG is not known here, so as other reviewers like AVGN, HVGN, and Roo from Clan of the Gray Wolf.

    Always take care everyone, and don't feed these ghouls, they're making your brains shrink.... ^_^

  165. Hiya Homer
    Don't worry I'm not bothering with the trolls here.
    That's an interesting comparison, though I consider iJustine more appropriate.

    Yeah, even the Game Anthropologist made fun of her, when she "tries" to "play Portal 2... She sucks at it, as in, sucks like IG on Contra... Hahaha!

  167. Well, get ready, because I predict that part 2 of IG's Robocop review will be up either today or tomorrow.

    Welcome.

    Bores has been know to delete any comments that criticize him in any way. Say he's unoriginal? Deleted. Mention AVGN? Deleted. Say the Genesis came out before the SNES? Deleted.

    I could understand if Bores deleted the troll comments, like the ones telling him he should kill himself. There's a difference between censoring legit point and getting rid of rude, pointless posts.

    Unfortunately, some who read this blog aren't smart enough to know the difference, and are just waiting to accuse BatDan of being just like Bores if he deletes one of Charlie's gay porn links.

    (Seriously, Charlie. It say's "riding bear back" in the URL, and it's from you, and you expect us to follow it?)

    Well, I mean the "eliminating" word in a figurative way. Like how we see the flaws in a game, but we continue playing anyway, because we want to finish it or we love the game.

    And yeah, I can see a few people who really don't understand criticism on their endeared gaming "idol"(*vomits*). I get those kinds of people every time as well. I'm looking forward for another post here. And oh, no flame war ok?

  170. Well Kwing's Aladdin review is up and there are no poorly animated CGI snakes in sight.

  171. As usual, I am going to post stuff that is irrelevant yet interesting to watch unless I found something that has to do with Bores.

    Watch these videos in order for full effect:

  173. Yeah, I just watched the new Irate Gamer episode. It's only 7 minutes long and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Though it doesn't really say a whole lot.

    At least the good thing, is that it focused more on the review this time, and not so much the plot. Even then, it felt he just rushed it as barely anything happens. It's just him whining about not able to get past the first level of Robocop 2 and starting over again.

    So yeah, the review was nothing TOO painful. Just the part where Cousin Joey shows up is probably the worst part about it.

  174. I took a look at the IG review. Skip to 3:47. I swear I saw the AVGN at that point.

  175. So ROB can vaporize machines, but can only singe a human being?

    ReplyDelete
  176. It's funny how AVGN can make a video about Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, play it for little more than two hours, and offer such criticism as "this game has puzzles" and "I don't like bosses in games." But then, at least he called his video a "first impression" piece.

    Also, the only thing worse than the Green Lantern movie was the game. I'd say that that's subjective and that every reviewer is entitled to their own opinion, if it were an actual reviewer.

    Now play Thor: God of Thunder, IG.

  177. Manhunt had stealth. Bores could play that, but then his cousin Joey might have nightmares.

  178. Adorable, don't you guys just love it when sockpuppets hold a conversation?

  179. Bores said he was a Green Lantern fan in this video...
    Green Lantern fan my ass! I bet he doesn't even know who Geoff Johns is.
