Originally I was opposed to making a post about this, buuuut after some thought I've decided that this could use a short one.
Yesterday, IG uploaded a short (1 minute 13 seconds) sketch video. It didn't make sense.
We see IG playing Super Mario Bros. 3 BADLY, rather playing badly on purpose. Don't jump into the spinning platforms you dumbass! Go into your inventory, use a leaf, and fly through the level. It's World 5-4.
He then says he needs lives and a 1-Up Mushroom dangles next to his head. IG refuses it. Um why? Unless he's savvy enough to know that grabbing an item will cause Lakitu to throw Spinies, but I seriously doubt that he does. Plus, Lakitu doesn't do that until Super Mario World, so having him do it in a video about SMB3 doesn't make sense.
After a little bit, IG yells at the Super Mario World Lakitu (see, wrong game!) and then Lakitu hits him with the mushroom and fills his room with Spines up to his chest. He let's out a horribly hammy "ow", the credits title card shows up, then a Spiny gets on his head as he tries to blow it off.
... I DON'T GET IT!
The title doesn't make sense. "Lakitu's Revenge". Revenge for what? All IG did was call him an asshole. Is that really something to get worked up over? I call IG an asshole all the time, why hasn't he taken revenge on me?
I guess the title would make sense if in the game he kills a Lakitu, but he doesn't. He's just purposely failing on a level he can just fly over.
Where was the joke? He yells at a video game character and they hurt him? I don't get it! It's like Bores needed to get something out to tell people that "yes, I still talk about video games". Or he needed money.
I wonder why he didn't just do another contest, he never even announced the winners of that one from two months ago. Hmmm.
It's funny how Bores planned the next History of Video Games for 2011 but a couple weeks ago said he didn't have the consoles needed. Nice planning asshole!
