Last time on IG’s Endless E3 Snoozefest.
Bores reveals he has no idea what kind of event E3 is when detracting points from Sony for not having celebrities. He believes there’s a game called “Dance Party 3”. He also believes New Super Mario Bros. U pushes the limits of the Wii U. “Nintendo is Kiddy” is invoked with idiotic reasoning. A lame Magic: The Gathering video game is heavily praised. His knowledge on fighting games continues to fail by mentioning “limit breaks”. And apparently he thinks God of War is a comedy.
And now, the continuation.
Video #9: Transformers Fall of Cybertron
Date: June 20th 2012
*looks at title card* Part 8? Brilliant oversight Bores!
After the same bit with Steve Masters from the last video (is this how we’re going to open every video now? Oh dear…) we go into the interview.
More generic safeness with obvious questions. A good 80% is about the characters in the game.
At one point, it’s stated Grimlock is going to have a different origin story. So later in the interview, he asks if they’ll rewrite canon. *sighs* Hello? Anybody home? Pay attention!
Sorry it’s so short, looks like we didn’t get a good starter for Part 2 here…
Video #10: Resident Evil 6
Date: June 21st 2012
*sees intro says Transformers Fall of Cybertron* Could you go one video without doing something stupid?
Boring interview, boring interview, I gotta admit this game looks terrible.
He once again goes into the “zombie craze” like it’s a recent thing. Zombies have always been around! They didn’t become huge with The Walking Dead. If anything, they just lay dormant until big new movie/show/game comes out. Plus, with stuff like RDR Undead Nightmare and Call of Duty Nazi Zombies, people are sick of them.
By the way, his claim on “innovative mutated creatures”? I saw those flying ones in the last game! You fail at PR spinning.
Good lord, Capcom reps are so full of shit. I can see why Seth Killian quit. How are you comparing this to 24, Lost and Heroes? That wasn’t even Bores saying it. Somehow, the rep was dumber than Bores! God damn…
Video #11: Darksiders II 2
Date: June 23rd 2012
Why did you put different versions of “II” in the title? Do you think your audience isn’t smart enough to get basic roman numerals?
Right off the bat, Chris admits to not playing the first game. Something tells me GotGame forced this interview on him.
We get it Bores, you like God of War! You can stop reminding people you’re a fan. I don’t think this guy from THQ that doesn’t know you cares.
His second question asks about weapons. His third question… also asks about weapons. How do you get away with claiming you’ve worked in journalism? You’re below amateur.
Bores notes that there’s also jumping and climbing … and then says it gives him a “puzzle-like feeling”. *sighs* Darksiders does have puzzles. These are not examples of those. Considering you do the same jumping and climbing in God of War… Argh my brain is in pain!
I don’t even know anymore.
Video #12: Skylanders Giants
Date: June 23rd 2012
You might be thinking “two videos in one day? Holy crap” I don’t think that was the case. Darksiders 2 was probably uploaded after midnight, while this one was uploaded normally.
I’ve got a confession. After playing some Skylanders at a friend’s house… I bought the game and most of the figures. Plus, I was surprised at how many adult fans there were. I can see why the sequel doesn’t have Spyro’s name, he’s completely inconsequential. The only reason he’s “important” is that he had a franchise.
The title card is really awful. It’s Bores doing his “I’m supposed to be angry but I look constipated” face next to Tree Rex. Why are you angry? Are you attempting to look “Irate” even though this is the game you gave the most attention to?
As you might guess, it’s an interview and boy is it tedious.
Characters characters charaaxzaerazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz *gets slapped* Wha?
I did notice he took the time to add extra text explaining. I wonder why this series gets so much special treatment… Maybe because it’s damn easy?
Video #13: Assassin’s Creed 3
Date: June 26th 2012
What’s this? A game from Ubisoft? I’m shocked they let him near their booth after last year’s video. Sadly, this proves there’s no justice in this world…
Maybe Ubisoft didn’t see it. I know other people in the industry that have been blacklisted for much MUCH less. Like Jim Sterling and Destructoid got blacklisted from Konami because he criticized their PR methods and planning (such as releasing the MGS HD Collection the same day as Call of Duty, giving next to no attention to Snake Eater 3D, and their plan of releasing three Silent Hill games in one month, thankfully one was delayed).
Couldn’t you have conducted this interview at a better place? I don’t want to hear the damn Rabbids screaming while looking at ACIII footage.
After two questions about assassination methods, he asks about research. Yes Chris, they did a lot of research. Far more than you’ve ever done for your show. Despite your claims.
At this point there’s really not much I can say. He just keeps asking obvious questions over and over. I wonder what’s left. His favorite games list on Facebook included Star Wars 1313 and South Park: The Stick of Truth. We might see videos on those. Other stuff I don’t know.
Video #14: Hell Yeah Wrath of the Dead Rabbit First look
Date: June 27th 2012
For some reason, this video wasn’t posted on GotGame. I only found it on his Blip channel after seeing the below video calling itself “Part 15”. I thought it was another error on his part (can you blame me?), but I checked his Blip and there was this video.
UPDATE: The video was eventually uploaded on the 28th.
“Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit”? Looking this up, it’s from an independent studio. Bores talking about a small company, what’s the catch? *published by Sega* Ooooh.
Yet another generic interview. Though he ends it saying the game’s title rather than his stupid catchphrase.
Video #15: Star Trek Ps3 Xbox 360 2013
Date: June 28th 2012
If you’re wondering why I’m not bringing up the descriptions, they’re almost all the same thing. “Highlighting this new game” or something like that.
“Camaraderie between the two guys” It’s Kirk & Spock! Well-established science-fiction characters. It isn’t like Ghostbusters were you’re a “new recruit” or the countless Star Wars games where you’re a new character. Major loss in nerd points.
He notes that the two seem to have different abilities. Gee, it’s almost like Spock is a Vulcan and can do things that Kirk, a human, can’t.
He notes that they “took artistic license” with the Gorn, changing them from their classic appearance. They likely did that because the original Gorn looks like shit. It was a guy in a rubber suit! Not a very convincing threat.
I’m searching for the light at the end of the tunnel, but I can’t find it!
Video #16: Super Mario Bros. 2
No Chris, this is NEW Super Mario Bros. 2. You already talked about Super Mario Bros. 2, you said you hated it for very inane reasons.
“Irate Gamer is all about the Mario” That’s why he hated… never mind. At least it’s a short video.
Half the video is a montage of footage and IG playing the game, at one point holding up the 3DS to the camera and giving a doofy grin.
After playing, he says really likes how Mario games get new features. Like… swiveling blocks. Wooo? That’s about it.
The video ends with a special thanks to “Tribal Hollywood: Jewelry for Men”. I’m curious as to how (and why) they got involved with this video. He’s not wearing any jewelry so I don’t understand the plug.
Video #17: Rayman Legends for Wii-U
Another Ubisoft game? Is Bores trying to cover Ubisoft titles to show people that he doesn’t hate them after all the bullshit he got last year?
I guess the interviews weren’t done.
“It’s very original” Someone clearly didn’t play Rayman Origins…
“I’m sure it’s going to get more complicated as the game goes on?” No shit! These obvious questions are hurting me…
The video ends with Bores making a face and devil horns to the camera. Stop that. Seriously.
There’s another Tribal Hollywood plug. What exactly did they do? I can’t tell!
It’s been a few days, where’s his next video? *receives message* I see… Seems that was his last interview. Rather abrupt ending if you ask me. He says he’ll have some final thoughts videos soon but I’ll save for those for Part 3. Man, so much boring…
Happy Independence Day to my US readers.
