Boo Video in 90 Seconds. ... I'm Getting Deja Vu

IG uploaded a new video, another "short". After watching it, I think I'm starting to notice something.

The short begins with IG playing Super Mario World and doing a Ghost House level. During his fake controller playing he looks to his right (our left) and sees a Boo. He looks again later and sees two Boos, and after that six Boos. All accompanied with scare chords.
IG throws his controller and looks down to his shelf. He knocks away his oddly placed Ghostbusters NES games and takes out a Ghost Trap. Why does he hide his Ghost Trap like that? Was that his way of telling the audience "Look, I have Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II on NES!" That's not something to be proud of, those games suck.
He places the trap, takes out a switch (because he's too lazy to add effects to a Proton Pack), does a badly forced evil laugh while he presses it and traps the Boos. Clearly this needed to exist. My guess is he wanted to show off his "cool tornado effect".
He picks up the trap and taunts the Boos inside, and somehow he makes it sound forced. Jeez.
During this I'm just saying "Big Boo will appear. Big Boo will appear" and what do you know Big Boo appears and roars. Since do Boos roar? That was lame.

I'm starting to notice a pattern with these shorts. IG plays an old game, character from game shows up, hi-jinx ensue. Yes, I'm jumping the gun a bit and I should wait for another one before determining this. I'm just merely delivering a hypothesis.

By the way Chris, the "ghosts" have a name. They're Boos. Maybe you should have looked that up before calling them "ghosts" in the title and description.

He says he has the next two IG shorts planned out (*points to pattern above*) and that for regular IG he's in the middle of a "huge story arc". Yes, a story arc so huge that it hasn't gone anywhere after four episodes and it's been six months since the last one. Brilliant! Don't expect it for a while, he said on Facebook he's still "finalizing the script".

      He answered that question yesterday...

      "BatDanNight Apr 21, 2012 10:04 AM

      Mostly their treatment of Handsome Tom and Guru Larry.
      Craig registered the ScrewAttack copyright behind Tom's back, effectively pushing Tom out of the company that he helped create.

      Larry was asked to join Machinima, and SA made a big stink about it since his account was still "ScrewAttackEurope". They also made a video where they "explained" why they did what they did, but the other SA members acted really rude. Making jokes and giggling like idiots.

      I heard they also got mad at TGWTG when James Rolfe made videos with them, and apparently he wasn't allowed to use the name "Angry Video Game Nerd", so he found a loophole and just called himself "The Nerd".

      Basically, Craig is an asshole."

  2. Long time reader, first time poster, only one thing I have to say:

    "Finalizing the script" made me almost die of laughter. I seriously doubt he uses a script at all seeing what he's done in the past. He probably thinks of something off the top of his head, and says it, no matter how stupid it sounds.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. Yeah, reminds me of the Nostalgia Critic episode where he decides to use Ghostbuster gadgets to trap Casper. It's funny because he's a ghost and NC wants to kick his ass.

      But big fail: in the Casper film he just reviewed, there was a scene where an ACTUAL Ghostbuster failed to catch Casper and said to "call someone else". Fail.

  4. This has been a other "pointless" video by Mr. Borning.

    Showing his ghostbuster ebay stuff to say he is a so called fan again and gamer.

    By that audience look I have ghosterbuster 1 and 2 on NES. He still failed at it since he doesn't have the NEW Ghostbusters 2 on NES so far being a fan/gamer/collector.

    Why do I have a feeling that the "finalizing the script" will lead to a other excuse from other.

  10. Bores new Irate Short suffers poor delivery. When the first Boo appears, he does not look surprised until he turns to the camera. It happens again a second time, but this time he looks at the camera in confusion while scratching his head. The third time, he gives an appropriate expression at the right time. It took three attempts to do it. Big Boo comes by later, growling. Bores turns around with an inappropriate tough guy look, then delivers the line "ah, sheeit." There should be a something such as a gasp or a shiver; something that represents fear or even just surprise. Bores delivered a line that usually used from somebody making a mistake.

    Does Bores have to turn to the camera every time to make a facial expression...it make his delivery unconvincing. While it is important to direct his attention to the audience, but the best way to show his expressions is to cut to them. We should of seen Bores' face directing towards us while his body and his folding chair is facing right on screen. I guess Bores did not want to take to the time effort to move the camera and record such footage

    1. And yet he still seems to have several jump cuts that make the whole thing feel rather stilted.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, there were some really awkward jump cuts in his video (the most noticeable one is the jump cut from Big Boo to Bores saying "Aw shit!"). They were clearly filmed at separate times but a competent filmmaker would compensate for that which we all know Bores is not.

      Delete
    3. That's along the lines of what I was thinking when I watched this. He sees the first Boo and he's like, "huh, there's a ghost in my apartment, how about that." Then there's two, and he's like "huh, now there's two ghosts. That's kind of weird." That's how you react to ghosts in your room? I don't think so...

      Delete
  11. Thinking back to the conversations we had the the previous comments, it actually makes sense that he's making videos like this. He has no desire to be a video game reviewer and he'll do everything he can to branch out of that and do Sketches, something that he seems to enjoy doing. When you really think about it, I don't think he would have had trouble in being a sketch artist on Youtube. They promote talentless hacks like Shane Dawson and I actually would rather sit through a marathon of Chris' videos than watch one of Shanes. Now that he carries the moniker "Irate Gamer" I don't think he'll be able to weasel his way out of video games anytime soon.

  15. It's been a bit. I'm sensing a pattern that he's just doing these sketches so he can still make a tenuous claim that his channel bears the name Irate Gamer; yet he has produced two game reviews, one History of Video Games, one Irate The 80s, and two sketches, and a rant on Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles. It's to be expected of a man that cares more about making money than he does about talking about subjects he enjoys. I've seen not just internet celebrities, but regular people that just want to have fun with making videos about things they like (even moreso since YouTube partnerships became more common). Boring Man is just trying to fart out some nonsensical bullshit to feed his fat face. I certainly hope that he didn't give up his day job for this drivel. It's sad that he's still putting more stock into cheap special effects than rewriting his scripts or working more on better elocution for words that really aren't that hard (Frustrating, Enemies, and now Portal); even as his subscriber count keeps falling.

    ReplyDelete
  16. *Yawn* That was a pointless video and I don't find the humor in it at all. It's completely random.

    Anyways, going off-topic. I just watched Screwattack's Top 10 franchises that should die and...wow. It is the most assanine list they ever done. While some of them are ones I agree, here are the choices they made that pissed me off.

    10. Angry Birds

    Fuck you Craig, Angry Birds is awesome. Yeah, I'm an Angry Birds fan. Craig says that he hates it because it has four seperate apps, all of them having the same gameplay. By that logic, are you saying that the Pokemon and Mario games suck as well because they had the same gameplay in all of their sequels? Why not add those two in the list then?

    9. Dynasty Warriors

    "How many Dynasty Warriors game do we need?" Well, then you guys never heard of Romance of the Three Kingdoms then, the story which the DW games are based on. The Romance of the Three Kingdom is a popular Chinese historical novel based on real-life Chinese legends such as Zhao Yun, Ma Chao and Zhuge Liang. And hell, it's an extremely long novel which takes place from 169 AD to 280 AD. So with a long storyline like that, it's obvious there's still going to be more Dynasty Warriors games. And there are several different versions of the novel too!
    And that's not the worst part, Craig and Nick start off their running gag which is saying 'Over and over and over and over..." SHUT UP!

    8. Lego Series

    Fuck you guys, the Lego games are fun. While I agree Lego Rock Band was stupid, the actual Lego games aren't that bad. The gameplay is simple but what did you expect, they are for kids. That's their main target audience and I even had friends who like the games despite them now being teenagers and young adults.

    4. Kingdom Hearts

    Ooooh boy, this is going to suck. Craig and Nick said why did they make so many spinoffs and there is still no real part 3? Who cares? The spinoffs help gamers understand the storyline more. That's a good thing. Besides, it's not like Square Enix doesn't give a shit about the series anymore. They WILL make Kingdom Hearts 3 eventually! Nomura has to finish Final Fantasy Versus XIII first! Also, the spinoffs aren't bad games (With the exception of re:coded) and Birth of Sleep was awesome! "Why does many people cosplay Sora in so many anime conventions til this day?" Maybe because they like the games? Ugh.

    2. Final Fantasy

    They say Final Fantasy was a great series but after XIII, XIV and XIII-2, what happen? I agree XIV was EXTREMELY terrible but fuck you guys, XIII was good and XIII-2 was even better! "The last good FF game was Final Fantasy X" ...excuse me guys. *Slams head on desk*

    1. Halo

    *Facepalm* I knew it. I knew they will put Halo number 1 on this list. As usual, Craig and Nick both say how much Microsoft is a huge money-grabbing asshole for cash cowing with the Halo games all the time and OH SHUT THE FUCK UP! The Halo games are awesome! The story, the campaign, the multiplayer, everything about Halo is awesome! Hell, Halo: Comabt Evolved was the very first FPS I ever played and til this day, I loved it! And Halo 2, 3, ODST and Reach are fun too! WE GET IT! YOU GUYS HATE HALO! STOP REMINDING US!

    This is the main reason why I now hate Screwattack because I am sick and tired of them bashing Microsoft and Halo ALL THE TIME.

    2. Actually, ALL the Dynasty Warriors games cover pretty much the whole timeline (Yellow Turban Rebellion, Dong Zhou's tyranny, the founding of the Three Kingdoms, the ensuing conflicts between the Three Kingdoms) except maybe the end. Some games go into more detail in specific periods by having their campaign mode focus more on the individual heroes than the kingdoms.
      What you're suggesting is that every entry in the franchise covers only a few years and picks up where the last one ended, which is not true.
      ScrewAttack uses the common complaint that every game in the series is basically the same game, with actual fans (like myself) desperately noting the changes in gameplay to no avail. Another complaint might be the story, but then again, pretty much every Asian already knows the gist of the Three Kingdoms, so an full-blown history lessons is not necessary.

      Delete
    3. @ Doresh

      I see. My mistake then. Yeah, I admit, I'm just a casual fan meaning I do know about Dynasty Warriors but I never played it. So I thought every entry is covered only a few years but now that you mentioned that, I realized my mistake. My bad but hey, I learn something new every day.

    5. Speaking of SA....does anyone else think The Game Overthinker's videos are about the same quality of IG's? I'm not talking his commentary section, I think that's ok though I could do without all the stupid shots of him walking around and looking like he's trying to look intelligent. I mean his "storyline" where he obviously is playing most if not all the characters? And the storyline is about as bad as Bores. The only thing I'll give him is at least he produces his videos on a schedule.

    FFXIII and the word "good" don't really fit in the same sentence for me... still, I don't think that warrents Square Enix to give up.

    2. Does he even understand that his fans want his regular IG stuff and not crappy skits, horrible spin-offs or his """epic""" story of nothingness ?

      When you look at the graphs on SocialBlade, you can see that his view count (what actually matters) is falling apart. He barely gets half the views he was getting a year ago, and probably half the money too.

      Delete
    3. The truth is, Chris fell so substantially due to the fact that he failed to produce actual content, and, as a result, his subscriber gain was either slow or at worst, negative.

      If you imagine YouTube like a race, all the people who actually cared and produced regular content sprinted ahead, enjoying themselves and their growing subscriber count, while Bores just plodded along not really giving a fuck about achieving anything.

      But it doesn't matter. More talented and devoted people will keep on passing him. Not to mention, some day it will get to the point where having 100,000 subscribers will no longer be considered impressive, for lack of a better term. And that will truly be when Bores finally falls into obscurity.

      Delete
    4. I don't think Chris will ever fall into obscurity, the amount of subscribers you have bares very little with your fame online.

      I mean everyone knows who Game Dude, NAVGTR and NC17 are, yet they have less than 5,000 (GD & NAVGTR) and 500 subs (NC17) respectively.

    1. James is losing subscribers for the same reason Chris is, he isn't putting out the show people joined to see as often as he used to.

      AVGN is currently on the other side of the country making a movie (or as you prefer to believe spending time perpetrating an overly complex hoax involving hiring the staff and items needed to make a movie) and honestly Mike Matei isn't the draw that James is but if James isn't making videos at least he's trying to keep the site alive. Chris on the otherhand could easily still be in the top hundreds of Subscribers but he doesn't produce what his fans want, whether he likes it or not his fans are too young to care about his HOVG or remember the 80's, while Im honestly not bothered by his silly little comedy vids his "fans" are waiting for content that isn't coming

      if you look at the previous
      year James produced 9 proper AVGN episodes in 2011 while Chris has stated that he is busy making videos but has produced 3 proper Irate Gamer Show's in the same period. Chris doesn't care about doing IG videos because he doesn't like or play games and is very lazy, I say this because even if he knew nothing coming in he's been at this for years and has gone to E3 numerous occasions and hasn't improved one bit.
      I don't drink but I know the differences between wine grapes because its my job to do so yet Chris Bores doesn't even know TEKKEN's selling point is its one on one fighting mode.

    I hope you also notice that in the days proceeding yesterday's loss of subscribers, he's gained hundreds, a trend that seems to be continuing today. Seeing as neither James nor Mike have done little to draw significant ire in the past few days, I can only assume that the loss was either an occurrence of freak chance or an incident doctored by idiots like you.

    it's astounding what the internet fame has done to inflate that little shit's ego.
    he is the epitome of all the flaws of internet celebrities. everything is wrong with his picture he has a manufactured persona, he lies about his past, he is a ripoff, and he has no writing or social skills. he is merely a manchild who clings to his fame for dear life and acts like a complete baby whenever he receives criticism or opposition. if he would only listen to some of the "haters" he might have success in his life. instead he will never admit any of his flaws and will continue embracing failure for the rest of his ignorant life.
