Lakitu Video in a Minute. ... What Just Happened?

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!

  1. Nice to see you posting again. 2 things:
    1). When is the redux recap of the ET reviews coming out? I've been waiting for you to bust that review wide open.
    2). Have you ever heard of Revengeissweet30? He recently made this...charming artwork of you:

  2. Have you seen the new Archfiend video, talking about AVGN and his fans AGAIN? I mean, it's kind of pathetic at this point. He can have his own opinion, but come on. Oh, and he has ad revenue up on it. Of course. It pisses me off that people don't seem to understand that making a movie costs a LOT of money. Archfiend's whole argument is, "He shouldn't have asked for money. He should have paid out of pocket." It's not as if he demanded for money, threatening to cancel AVGN. He just said, "This is getting expensive. We're talking to investors, but if you want to make a contribution, here's a link." What's wrong with that?

    1. Are you really surprised to see Archfail bitching once again about a not-so-random YT partner ? That guy just picks whatever trendy shit is happening and makes money out of it, just like those Youtube whores he keeps complaining about.

    2. Cody S.: Wouldn't explain why he wants to make ad money, but I'm guessing that Archfiend and others with his opinion have a black and white view on money.

      Looking to make money is evil. Artistic types should be happy to starve while churning out their work rather than cashing in on their talent.


      At least that's what I'm guessing, but again the only time wanting to make money is a problem is when someone cuts corners and puts little effort into making money.

    7. Archfiend. Oh boy oh boy. Belive me or not but he's a fucking disaster. I remeber when some haters called him "a poser", guess what he did, he posted pictures of his steroid-pumped muscles to show how "real" and "tough" he is. For a person that pretends not to care about the interent he sure does some weird stuff. He has a daughter (i mean that's what he claims) and plugs her in his vids, the same thing he hated Shaycarl for. He stands against the "YT system" but that, ironically, makes him a part of it.

      Delete
    8. @Charles yes because there are never any riots due to sports in the US.

    9. I think it would be prudent to say that I don't even like soccer (In fact I take no real interest in most sports). However to condemn a sport because it has unruly fans is downright retarded. By his logic, Cricket is a dangerous sport because it's fans have been induced to violence.

  11. NC's Patch Adams video was actually pretty good. It was the first one that legitimately made me laugh at his review in a while.

    4. Not necessarily, I have no problems with couples doing show together, but both of them had established shows before they started dating, or at the least they kept the show seperate. My problem is almost every video Phelous has done the past month or so has had her in it, and basically the joke has gotten old. Phelous' show is maybe my favorite on TGWTG and it just feels like the him and Lupa thing is being beaten into the ground.

  12. Ozzyman: You seem to bash James for no other reason than to stick it to this blog, whereas the criticism against Bores are full of legit gripes. We're not doing it to spite his fanbase.

    You make claims of hypocrisy, even those there are differences which negate your argument. In fact here are some which you and others have given:

    1. Accusation: James has taken long to release AVGN episodes too, yet no one gets on his case for it.

    Rebuttal: James will be upfront when there's a lag in new episodes. For March of 2010, he admits to wanting to take a break before doing more episodes. And as for right now, he stated that the movie would put a delay in the episodes.

    Chris on the other hand isn't and sometimes claims an episode will be out, only to fail on delivering.


    2. Accusation: James makes money on his character and no one calls him greedy.

    Rebuttal: No one is begrudging Chris the right to make money off his characters and videos. Our problem with him is that his products contain little effort.

    And even if James is selling products, to make the kind he does with the effort he puts into it, he obviously spent money to make sure the products are worth our money.

    In short, money is good. Cutting corners is bad.

    3. Accusation: James makes mistakes in his videos, but no one bashes him for it.

    Rebuttal: James makes the effort to improve, Chris doesn't. Like with the merchandise, the difference between one and the other is effort. Keyword, effort

    Furthermore, Chris stated in a non joking manner that he knows all the ins and outs of video games, yet is proven wrong in his videos.

    James made no such claim. In short, a humble person who makes an error can do so without tarnishing credibility, but if you profess yourself to be a know it all, then you best be able to back it up.



    If you don't mind the suggestion Batdan, maybe for a future blog you could go in more detail on why the criticism for Chris isn't heavily applied to James.

      He's a troll. Trolls don't care for legit arguments, they just love to argue. Chances are he knows the differences between James and Bores, but publicly acknowledging it isn't as fun as pretending to be too stupid to notice and pissing people off. You're wasting your time by even trying.

    3. Finally. Thank you very much. We finally have someone who points out Ozzy's hatred towards James and his contradictions.

      Ozzyman is obviously a troll. He still praises Bores despite all the flaws and idiotic things Batdan points out and continously says that James is slow in making videos which is not true. He post new videos every week on Cinemassacre.

  13. Yep, not much to say about this video, other then it was fucking pointless!

    Also, not that its really important, but isn't Bores suppose to make a video about that Johonny Awesome kid's contest thing? I'm thinking that's not going to happen.

  14. Everyone knows Mario. Everyone knows the 1-up mushroom. Everyone knows Lakitu. This goes for gamers and non-gamers.

    However, most non-gamers have never encountered a Lakitu "fishing" for Mario with a 1-up, and even some gamers don't remember it. I once had that image as a spray on Counter-Strike:Source, and almost everyone I played with though I'd photoshopped Lakitu from Super Mario Kart and put the mushroom in place of the starting light.

    I always grabbed the 1-up on purpose then dodged the spinies afterwards. Many of my less-skilled friends didn't understand why I did this. They'd try to dodge the 1-up so the spinies would never show up. I remember many times when Lakitu would force the 1-up on them, and they'd scream "No!" as he did.

    When I see Bores denying the 1-up to avoid the spinies, despite him desperately needing it, he actually reminds me of people who I consider legitimate gamers.

    Also, unlike shooting the Duck Hunt dog, this is a reference that few non-gamers would actually understand. Everyone knows and hates the Duck Hunt dog, not everyone has encountered a fishing Lakitu.


    So, giving credit where credit is due, I'd say this is Bore's best joke so far. The fact that a very short video was dedicated to this one joke isn't so bad either. At least he didn't shoehorn it into an unrelated review (Duck Hunt dog, anyone? "I just got R.O.B.'ed"?)

    1. I guess you have a point. Really, if he could work out a few of his worse "isms" (Winter Gaming, Overdone mugshots) and produce smaller vids like these with some regularity, it'd at least be a step in the right direction. I'm not holding my breath, though.

  18. Forgive my response being placed here, but I can't make use of the reply button. That said:

    1. Maybe Ozzyman is a troll, but just the same, I think an entry would be handy as our defense towards James for seemingly being guilty of the same things we critique Chris for could legitamitely be seen as hypocrisy without context.

    2. As for the earlier comment about why Chris slacks off, I'm still in the camp that thinks he views the job as nothing more than a source of money and has little to no enjoyment of it.

    Have Doug and James lowered in quality throughout their shows? Maybe, and maybe not. But they enjoy their work, and even if their current episodes aren't their best, they can still leave a good feeling in you.

    Heck, there've been several videos from Chris last year that got some degree of praise on here, indicating that his videos could improve slightly if he were doing reviews on what he enjoyed, rather than convincing us that he's a big video game fan.

    1. I may be in the minority here, but I haven't really seen a decline in James' work. I mean, he has some dumb jokes here and there, but overall, they're still great, entertaining reviews IMO.

    2. I second that. It's not like the earlier episodes didn't vary in quality as well, and episodes 99-101 are probably some of my favorites (Yeah, I liked the ROB episode, so sue me). When I see all the idiots out there who are like "Man, the series started sucking after the Sega CD episode", I'm just baffled. Really, it wasn't until shortly after that when the series really hit its stride.

      Delete
  19. I'm not insisting that James jumped the shark, I'm just stating that even if some episodes aren't well done, his interest in his job makes up for that.

    If I have to critique a particular portion, I'd say that some of the episodes that were made after he began working on the movie didn't do it for me (entertaining, just not as memorable). But even then I do enjoy his crossover with Pat (which got me into checking out Pat The Nes Punk episodes) and despite some not caring for it, his final Bible Games review.

    1. If I have to say so myself, I think that most of 2010 was where I found the nerd in his weakest.

      For example, I found his Metal Gear review so-so. Sure there is things I agree with (like the respawning enemies just for going in the item menu) but he really should have done more research. He seems to praise the MSX game even if it has all the flaws he talks about on the NES version and that respawning on the world map after a death depends on the rank you have. (one star put you at the begining, two stars near the first building, etc)

      Heck, I like the nerd yet he dropped the ball on that one (and he didn't correct them on youtube like with the Dick Tracy review) I just felt like he trashed a decent flawed game just for laugh. I know, I know, it's like Simon's quest yet he justifies it as a joke. It seems like he should explain it better why he thinks it sucks.

    1. The difference here is that this blog's ENTIRE PURPOSE is to point out IG's flaws. If you want to express your opinion of the AVGN, go ahead, but do so on a site where people share your opinions. No amount of commenting here is going to change how anyone feels about James. This blog is about IG, not AVGN.

      Delete
    2. Even so, I have to disagree with your opinions on James. I completely respect him and still very much enjoy his work. If I was able to I would of willingly donated to the AVGN movie. Movies cost a lot of money to make, he's not trying to make it in a week or less like the people at TGWTG. He's making a real feature length film. And unlike Bores, I can actually TRUST James to do something.

      If the AVGN movie comes out looking something like "Suburban Knights", I will be disappointed.

  23. Ozzyman: And furthermore, James is at least telling us that the episodes will be on hold, Chris not only claims he's at work, but offers no explanations for the delay.

    1. Just give up trying to debunk Ozzyman. Even if he isn't a troll, he's never going to shut up about or respect our opinions on James. That much is obvious from how many comments of his have to do with how James is apparently a greedy hack and how we're hypocrites for hating Bores but liking James.

      Delete
    2. Followers of this blog criticize Bores for using disreputable tactics to promote his show. One of these tactics was using dealdash.com, misleading his viewers on the nature of dealdash.com's business practices and the nature of the partnership.

      People call followers of this blog hypocrites because we don't bash James for the same thing.

      JAMES NEVER DID THAT. A quick Google search of "James Rolfe dealdash" will find no affiliation between dealdash.com and James Rolfe. The same could be said about any scam "penny auction" sites.

      IF James Role ever does something like that, you can call us hypocrites, but ONLY if we don't criticize him for it equally.


      Another disreputable thing that Bores has done to promote his show is his rigged contest. The contest serve only to artificially intensify his YouTube views and comment stats so he gets more partnership money. In this contest, he breaks his own rules by ignoring all the comments fueling his income and instead have his mother pick winners based on personal favoritism.

      People call followers of this blog hypocrites because we don't bash James for the same thing. JAMES NEVER DID THAT.

      IF James ever holds a contest for the sole purpose of increasing partnership revenue, AND he isn't equally criticized by members of this blog, THEN you can call us hypocrites.

      IF James holds a contest but disregards the rules and has his mother pick winners based on personal preference, AND no one criticizes him for it, THEN you can call them hypocrites.


      James is accepting donations to fund a film project based off an original idea. People call us hypocrites because we don't offer Bores a pass for doing the same thing.

      BORES HAS NEVER DONE THE SAME THING He's never taken PayPal donations, he's never worked on a film, and he's never had an original idea.

      IF Bores were to hold PayPal donations to fund an original film, NO ONE here would criticize him for it. IF that ever happens AND we criticize Bores for his funding methods instead of the film itself, THEN we'd be hypocrites.

      FYI if Bores held PayPal donations for an "Irate Gamer" movie, we would criticize him. We'd criticize him for cashing in on someone else's idea, no for cashing in. If James were to be funding an unoriginal movie, he'd be held to the same standard and criticized just as much.

      Delete
    3. ... For those who accuse us of glorifying everything James does as well, that's a lie.

      People on this blog have criticized Bores for focusing too much on skits and not enough on informative reviews. Most people on this blog, including myself, have criticized James for doing the same thing. Many of us have expressed concerns that the AVGN movie might be just be one long skit.

      People criticize Bores for not doing the proper research on games. James has also been criticized for not knowing enough about the game mechanics of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to get past the first screen of the game.

      Yeah, Bores gets a lot more negative talk than James, but there's good reason for that...

      1) This is the "Irate Gamer Sucks" blog. AVGN isn't even in the title of this blog. If the blog were called something like "AVGN vs Irate Gamer" then we'd likely list ALL the flaws of BOTH reviewers. If this blog were called "AVGN Sucks", then there'd be a lot more negative comments about AVGN than IG, if there were negative comments about IG at all.

      2) Bores deserves the negative criticism that he gets. Yeah, I have more bad things to say about Bores than I do James. That doesn't mean I'm a fanboy or I'm bias, because I have more bad things to say about Bores based on 100% even expectations from the two of them.

      I also have more bad things to say about "Cabin Fever" than I do "Shindler's List", and that's because "Cabin Fever" was a completely shitfest of a movie. Just because I can find a hundred bad things to say about "Cabin Fever" doesn't mean I have to find exactly a hundred bad things to say about every other movie I watch, because "Cabin Fever" is a worse movie than most. Just because I can find a hundred things I like about "Shilder's List" doesn't mean I have to find exactly a hundred nice things to say about every other movie, because it's a better movie than most.

      Likewise, just because I can find a hundred things I hate about Bores doesn't mean I have to find a hundred things I hate about James as well. I hate Bore's skits, I hate James's skits too. That's fair. I don't like Bores shoehorning "Star Wars" references into unrelated reviews. Likewise I don't like James shoehorning "American Movie" references into unrelated reviews. That's fair. I don't like Bores "Winter Gaming" with a whenever he's pretending to play the games. I'm not going to pretend James does the same thing just to appease people who'll call me a hypocrite if I don't.

      If you think that makes me bias or a hypocrite, you need a goddamn dictionary.

    "FYI if Bores held PayPal donations for an "Irate Gamer" movie, we would criticize him. We'd criticize him for cashing in on someone else's idea, no for cashing in. If James were to be funding an unoriginal movie, he'd be held to the same standard and criticized just as much."

    Perfect example of your hypocrisy. Who else came out with a movie just before James? Oh yeah, the whiny bitch Fred. So James IS cashing in on somone else's idea.

    and again, The legitimacy of James' contests are just as in question as Bores'. You all go by what 1 obsessive stalker said and that's automatically fact. It goes to show you'll take anything any of bores' fanboys say, no matter how ridiculous, and pass it off as fact.

    Sure this blog is dedicated to hating 1 insignificant reviewer(Which in itself is just sad) But you guys also criticize other people like Asa & Archfaggot.

    You must be really desperate to find something wrong with our arguments if you want to bring up Fred. Your point basically sums up like this: James can't make a movie about the AVGN because Fred made his movie first

    Nice job ignoring that the Fred movie was funded by Nickolodeon, James was doing his stuff long before Fred came along, both work on entirely different things, and James had already the idea for the movie, with the script done since 2008 while Fred the Movie came out in 2010

  26. Wow way to completely ignore my point people. I was responding to what Shaolin Dave said. Which was basically, if IG decided to make a movie he'd be "cashing in on somone else's idea".
    So hypothetically speaking, if Bores for whatever reason decided to make an IG movie, he'd be ripping off James, just because he decided to make a movie out of his internet show? If that's really what you all think, you need to have your heads examined.

      Hypothetically speaking, if Bores were to come up with an original idea and use PayPal donations to fund it, then none of the regular follows of this blog who you accuse of being hypocrites would criticize him for it any more or less than they criticize James. That's because we're not hypocrites.

    Hell I give Asa credit for be a man and admitting that Bores' R.O.B review was better than James'.
    If James actually came out with his R.O.B review first, than you guys would say Bores ripped off James' by having R.O.B attack him.

      As for Asalieri, most people here dislike the fact that he can turn a bar fight into a nuclear war.
      Accuse him of death threats, even though it may have been a misunderstanding? Start a war on the blog, Anon4488 (totally not a BusyStreeter, by the way) included.
      Jfreedan called ClanOfTheGreyWolf racist because of J's loose grasp on the term JRPG? Take it so personally as to start a month long war, instead of saying he was wrong and that JRPG is not a racist term, because the former seemed like the more fun option.
      We express our opinions about him [(He totally doesn't do that) And *gasp* in a less agressive manner!]? Make tons of videos about it.

      You see, with Archfiend, we've hated him from the start. With Asalieri, it's not about his opinions, it's how he expresses them.

    And I'm guessing your tiny lizard brain could not grasp my reasoning as to why his point is null.
    Allow me to repeat myself than. It's because Bores will never have an original Idea. In this blogs view, No matter what IG does, he will never be original.

      So, these "ripoff claims" are just what a handful of people said. It's not what we all think.

    5. I realize I'm kind of late to the party here, but what bugs me about Bores isn't that he's yet another angry reviewer. It's that he's somebody who sees something popular, and says to himself "that could be me."

      Not that he's criticizing games, but because he claims to be a gamer when his criticisms identify him as someone who never cared about videogames until angry game reviewers became popular. It's not so much about unoriginality, it's about throwing his hat into the ring when all he wants is money and recognition by pretending to know about something he obviously doesn't. Being a huge asshole to anybody who confronts him with a legitimate complaint doesn't help.

      Then again I'm the kind of guy who hates Twilight not because vampires don't sparkle, but because vampires don't sparkle because it's stupid if they do.

    2. After it became "I Rate the 80s", it was pretty much its own thing. Mostly the problem with it now is that Bores seems to alternate far too much between things he actually seems to care about (Micro Machines, The Bud Bowl) and stuff he just doesn't seem invested in (He-Man, Madballs). If he could either stick to what he knows or at least try to come up with something more informative than skimming a Wikipedia article on the things he doesn't, he'd at least be going in the right direction with that show.

    I don't know how I'd feel if Bores reviews Skylanders. I get the feeling it would be an idiotic video where he praises the game that most people wouldn't want to get their hands on. Plus, you know this is another cash grab from Activision when they slap Spyro the Dragon onto the game.

I'll give him some benefit of the doubt here, but if this arc is anything like the last, it'll probably just end up being a huge buildup with little to no payout at the end.

  50. starofjustice:

    Agreed. I also have to say in general that another problem, not just with Bores, but some of those trying to following in James' footsteps is that they think a bunch of complaints make for a good angry review.

    To start with some relevant examples, some of Chris' reviews tend to center around how "bad" a game is because it has 8 Bit graphics and it's different from the predecessor or other games in general (i.e. Super Mario Bros 2 and Spot The Video Game). In contrast James never dismissed Castlevania 2 for it's graphics or being different from the first game.

    Or looking at Gamedude's review on Mickey Mousecapade, he spends a little too much time ranting about the title of the game, and then the name of the first level. Neither of which impact the gameplay.

    B. He wants to convince everybody that he's a fan of all of these franchises and video games, rather than doing videos on a subject he would enjoy.

  55. Well, Bores posted his first contest video since December. He's giving away 2 Irate Gamer mousepads this time.

    He also mentions that he's almost done with History of Video Games part 5 and that it's going to be on "5 weeks end" (IDK what he means by that). He also says that a new Irate Gamer NEO review and IG Short is going to be in the works as well.

    Oh, and he still did not announce the winners of his last contest video.

  56. Oh goody, a new Neo review. I guess GotGame finally realized he hadn't done any content for them since Thanksgiving.

  57. Oh goody, I can't wait to see another half - Assed post by Batdannight complaining about minute details no one cares about. Like his accent for example "Herp Derp IT'S NOT ME-LAY IT'S MAY-LAY DUMBFUCK!
    "If you don't pronounce words the way I do you dumbass"
    Hey look at that I got a line for you to use in you next IG article. You welcome Daniel.

  58. Speaking of, that does remind me of you post of IG's Brawl review(Which in fact was written worse then IG's review)

    The whole time I was reading that it literally got me thinking, What? did you(Batdannight) do a Brawl review that either came out terrible or wasn't as popular as IG's?

    I mean really you made the most asinine complaints about the review.

    "WTF you didn't mention all the other clone characters from Melee"

    "It's Pit, not Kid Icarus Dumbass" - I actually grew up on the Kid Icarus Games(even If Bores didn't) and I still prefer calling by the Games name.

    "You obviously only like Mr G&W to sound like a hardcore player" - Because that's the only reason someone could like him, huh?

    Here's some "constructive criticism" for you Batdannight. Instead of constantly complaining about what we've all known for What 7 years now?(Bores is a terrible reviewer)Why not critique actually gripes in the review and not the Reviewer!

    1. Hello Ozzy

      I have no interest in protecting Dan or labeling you a 'troll', but reading this post, it strikes me that your biggest gripe is with the way Dan writes up his pieces. So my question is this... Why dont you write your own?

      No seriously I am not baiting you I am generaly interested in what you mean. If you think Dan's review of IGs Brawl review was lacking then do your own review, not only would it move away from this 'angry troll tag' but it would be beneficial for us all as we see a diffeent way to critique Bores.

      Sincirely intrigued, Relin

    2. Exactly! Show us the right way, Ozzy!

    3. Plus, if he pronounces words differently due to an accent, all he would need to have done early on is mention it rather than having the viewers guess whether it's an accent or incapability to get words right.

      Delete
    4. I'm only sincerely intrigued by the fact that he doesn't acknowledge the fact that the chances to make his points heard are now zero.

      Not to be mean, but trying to make a serious argument when you spent the last 3 posts igniting flame wars (with only you on your side, I wonder why...) is a pretty ballsy move.

    5. I'll concede to you that Brawl was one of Dan's weaker posts (Possibly due to his personal biases against the game). That being said, I'm pretty sure Boring Man's mispronunciation of melee, much like his "ay share" and "Kenny Kooman", was less his accent and more his being an illiterate hick.

      Delete
    6. "I thought I was playing Cool Spot not Super Smash Bros Me......Me......Me.......BRAWL!!!"

      Also for anyone that thinks his pronunciation of Melee is just an accent, keep in mind this is the same guy who uses terms like "fustrating".

    7. @ Ozzy

      Who the hell would ever called the protagonist Kid Icarus? The manuals always refer the character as Pit. Hell, even The Nostalgia Critic points out in his Captain N review that in the show he's called Kid Icarus when in the GAMING WORLD, he's called Pit

      Delete
    8. Sovereign64: Maybe so, but if people want to call him Kid Icarus that's their business. Now if Chris had stated a preference for that name, while providing the correct name at any point in the video, again, he'd get less criticism.

    1. Ugh, don't remind me of that. The DC Captain Marvel is still the iconic version of CM.

    2. Sorry but I can't see how Marvels b roster (at best) hero is more iconic then a character that has endured since the 1940's? Besides it was his name first.

      Which Marvel Captain Marvel is the iconic one by the way? Marvell? Monica Rambeau? Noh-Varr? Lets face it Ms Marvel is more iconic then Captain Marvel at this point.
