The Turd-Polishing Continues with the Light Rifle

Wow, this came out sooner than I thought it would. I covered Part 2, might as well cover this added bit.

Before I talk about the video, I should mention a different one he posted to GotGame. An interview about the game “Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse”. Originally filmed at this year’s E3 (I know since his blooper reel had a shot of him talking to the same representative in front of the same Family Guy sign), for some reason he decided to post it now. Not sure why since the game has been out for a couple weeks now, and has received abhorrent reviews, so I don’t see how this will build hype when there’s no longer any hype to be built.

Onto the Light Rifle video. Like the Odyssey revision, this is shorter than the original (5:19 compared to 6:35) and I imagine it will be just as stupid.

0:00 - 0:50: Wow, starting right off the bat. No intro or anything.
He brings up cards 7 and 8, then cards 9 and 10 and how they come with the Light Rifle. He once again brings up they’re hard to find and says “you’ll have to sell your soul for one”. Yep, he didn’t bother removing the Devil Bores bit, and the “sell your soul” line is just as forced.
“Sorry Satan, I already have one” It’s the same one you have since you’re just me in a mask.
“What? Well motherfucker” Okay, so he didn’t change that line. Further confusing me into what direction he wants to take his videos.
He then quickly goes over how the gun works.

0:51 - 1:52: He brings up the same “flawl” about how the rifle works if you point it any light source. That happens with light guns, even the NES ones. That’s what the light sensor in the gun is for.
This guy can explain it better than I could: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3tBk-LYyzo

IG skips over the Prehistoric Safari game and begins looking at Shootout. He does the same scene where the theme from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly plays followed by “ACTIONY MUSIC” as IG tries to make this look cooler than it really is. Chris, if this is for the so-called “DVD”, you can’t have Ennio Morricone music. Just like how you can’t have John Williams music in the first video.
He also added banter like “Come on!” and “What else you got?!” during the shootout. When that one last guy appears, he adds an effect when he shoots him. Really, this is all the revisions have done. Rather than fixing mistakes, he adds pointless effects.

1:52 - 2:27: He proceeds to Dogfight, and makes the same mistake of calling them “Nazi aircrafts”. Again, those are bi-planes, something that was more suited for World War I. Then we get the same scene of Bores putting on a jacket, a scarf, and sunglasses while playing the game to Flight of the Valkyries, a song more suited for Vietnam (Apocalypse Now anyone?) Also, why does he have a fan going? All it’s doing is making the posters move, this isn’t making it “epic” or anything.
And he does the same joke where the dot appears over his head and he shoots it. All this wasted time and energy going into recreating bits he already did. And he wonders why he’s losing fans?

2:28 - 2:49: IG then looks at Shooting Gallery, and calls it boring (probably because he couldn’t think of a dumb sketch to along with it).
He also adds this text “Warning: Objects May Appear More Boring Than They Already Are”. Hahahahaha wow, someone should add that to the beginning of all his videos. That is just the perfect warning.
Interesting to note, my Facebook informant told me that Bores said he added sight gags he couldn’t do on his old editing software. If this was one of them… that must be some ancient as hell software if you couldn’t add text to a video. *remembers the Dr. Jekyll Mr. Hyde Princible* Or maybe it’s something else.
He then pretends to blow his brains out with the rifle. What, no falling over like you’ve done before with the NES zapper?

2:50 - 4:24: And so we come to the HAL betrays him scene. Oh joy.
Same stuff happens. HAL hits IG with the gun, HAL says “bring it bitch”, then the anticlimax where IG… merely removes the card. But this time it’s padded out to last longer and make it look like he’s actually suffering. Too bad the fake electricity is making this look really silly rather than “badass”.
“Who knew he could do all that operating on C batteries?” Hey, don’t go pointing out the plot holes in your own writing. That’s my job.

The video ends with more history. He claims the second reason the Odyssey didn’t sell was the lack of rules and point system. Noooo, the Odyssey was new, nobody knew what to expect of it. Also, I did some research and people really did think that the Odyssey would only work on Magnavox televisions, something that I thought was bullshit originally. Yet, Bores removed that little trivia from this version. Hmmm.

Then he ends the video saying that Pong is next, while holding a sprite of the ball. I don’t mean like one of his “wooden” sprites, as in he digitally put it in there. Why not just hold up a Pong console?

That was… well to quote this very video “Objects May Appear More Boring Than They Already Are”. It was just boring, and I can’t really say if this is worse than the original 2B. The HAL parts were at least, especially when his HAL impression is still awful. Can’t you hire a voice actor or something? Oh wait, that would require him to pay, and actually give credit to someone.

I don’t think it’s worth e-mailing these videos to Ralph Baer, especially when he didn’t bother to fix the mistakes he made before. I just wish there was a way to contact Nolan Bushnell or Al Alcorn about the Pong videos.

  1. I had a weird tought today: Why does he market what basically amounts to "old video game console reviews" that would fit right with his normal episodes as some kind of documentary Oo ?

    Oh, and anyone remember Mr.Kill Ultra being judged harshly by LadyBuggin because of his nickname? Happened to me as well while I was pointing out the biplane-thing (I go by "evilDoresh" on YT becuse Doresh was already taken at that time).
    I then basically follwed my own comment on this blog's last entry and called er out on this (since, well, an "annoying lady" shouldn't judge people by their nicknames). I'm still waiting on her reaction before posting a screenshot.

  3. That Nazi line really irritates me. Why Nazis? Why arbitrary choose a group of people who may or may not fit into the game, especially when said group is a seriously loaded word is some places? As any fool can see the overlay features Bi-Planes so it's clearly WWI rather than WWII. Did Bores think the joke wouldn't work if he said 'enime' aircrafts?

    In fact THE MANUAL ITSELF says that your shooting the Red Baron and the game is set in WWI. Couldn't he have made a Snoopy joke?

    3. Ah but you see, its not the nazi symbol its the 'nazi' bird ala Wolfenstein. Its not nazis if they don't use the nazi symbol. I don't understand why, but apparently its okay to reference German military but not okay to actually bring up the political movement. Censorship has always been weird...

      That does make using the ever generic bad guys that Nazis are just one more sign of laziness.

    6. @Mr.Kill Ultra:

      Kinda forgot about your comment about Censorship, so here it comes:

      At least in Germany, the usage of the Swastika is forbidden (which let to some hilarious problems with Hinduistic minorities and Anti-Nazi movements using crossed-out Swastikas). Any comic, manga and game therefore has to replace the swastika with a simple cross, a window or whatever the feel like.

      Strangely, movies and TV series don't fall under this censorship and can show as many swastikas as they want. That's kinda understandable seeing how hard it would be to censor every single frame without anyone noticing, but it kinda makes this censorship a bit dumb Oo

      (Dunno why foreign games would censor the swastika, though.)

      Delete
    7. Well all the examples had swastikas galore in them, in fact in 'Escape From Coldiz' it's on the back of every card.

      @Doresh

      Well in order to be able to market in many countries (including Germany and Austria which both have large strategy game markets) it is necessary to remove the Swastika, and I can list a dozen games which did that, Panzer Generals, Hearts Of Iron, Blitzkreig, and World Of Tanks to name but a few.

      It's strange to say the least.

      Delete
    8. Well that's embarrassing, Escape from colditz doesn't have the true nazi symbol the on the cover, instead opting for the censorship bird. But if it is on every card then I honestly don't know why. It's really weird though, rechecking my research it appears that wolfenstein 3D did include swastikas but its remake, (which includes wolfenstein 3D as a bonus game) 'wolfenstien: return to castle wolfenstien' has removed all the swatsticas and replaced it with the bird.

      My guess is that censorship is based on how ballsy the developer and its publisher are feeling that month. We've got so many examples of 1970s that have true nazi symbol in it yet in the year 2000 we have censorship bird despite the fact its been even longer since the event. Its like the inverse example of 'too soon' on TVtropes. And do I need to mention exploding Hitler face in bionic commando?

      Delete
    9. @fatoler
      Yeah countries like Australia and Germany have extremely idiotic censorship. For a long time in Germany infantry were not allowed in RTS games to avoid blood being in the game. I have never seen the censored version of C&C generals (though I wish to play it) but all infantry have been replaced with cyborgs and the suicide bombers are rolling bombs!

      I know Australia has the excuse of having several dumbass politicians who vote NO for censorship reform despite having no ties or interest in the subject but what's Germany's excuse?

      Delete
    10. @Mr. Kill Ultra:

      That's nothing compared to Soldier of Fortune II, whose German version changed textures and blood effects to turn everyone into a robot Oo

      Our excuse? It's twofold:

      1. Our censorhsip rules are primarily about youth protection. Why we have to censor stuff for adults that were never meant for kids in the first place, I don't know (<_<)

      2. School shootings. Ever since the one in Erfurt in 2002 there's been this big hysteria about violent video games turning innocent boys into psychopaths. The favorite target of the media was the old Counter-Strike for some reason (going so far as to claim the game in the possesion of school schooters who never actually owned the game).
      We even had a weird professor claiming that "First-Person shooters teach our kids how to use real-life firearms!" and a VERY strange hate campaign against Final Fantasy VII (or just "Final Fantasy", as the media called it while it only used footage from FFXI and Dirge of Cerberus) because two 17-year-olds who killed 2 persons were allegedly fans of the game. Because they would've never done this if they'd never played the game -.-

      Luckily, the last school shooting was like 3 years ago and our media is too busy talking about the worldwide financial crisis, so more and more games are released uncut these days.

      Given Dork's low memory capacity and weak brain functions, this statement is true.

      OH and if anyone still cares. There's a patch just released that fixes Warhammer 40k Final liberation's movie problem (and since the movie problem was 99% of the cause of the game not running to begin with, this means the game can now be played). It took well over a decade to get that problem fixed by a less than 12kb FILE! I thought Valve was bad that pales in comparison to this. Thank you Aqrit! You did what no one in over 10 years could fucking do.

    5. "It's the same as LadyBuggin's "Let's make fun of nicknames!"-time. Some people seem incapable of sensing irony Oo"

      No that's not irony, irony would be if I used it in the same stupid way he did. This is known as coincidental as my point was that he can't be talking about other people having grudges when its clear he doesn't know what a grudge is and damn well doesn't know that crusading against AVGN with that shitty name he has (and we've caught him making fun of AVGN too) is very hypocritical in this context. I'm not bringing up his name to say how unfriendly it is. That would have been ironic.

      This message was probably very unnecessary but I absolutely hate it when people use irony when its not appropriate. If there is such a thing as Irony Nazi then I am in fact one of those.

  8. Seeing how the year's about the end. What's your guys favorite Chris bore's mistake of the year?

    I'm gonna go for two things:
    1. Spending another year on a dead cause with no signs of improvement or progression in career
    2. Praising Ninja Gaiden 3 in the hopes of getting more review copies despite the fact that he wants to keep his "I'm a gamer" cover.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Here's my list:
      5.) History of Video Games Part 5: It took 14 months to come out and it was only 5 MINUTES LONG!
      4.) Stealing Cyberman65's footage for his Sonic Generations review. Just another way to prove he's both lazy and a thief.
      3.) His Ebegging Spoof video. So much for not watching James Rolfe's videos in years. He is also the LAST person who should be making a video like this, especially since his former artist DatBoiDrew also did a Kickstarter in the past which IG himself supported (well, somewhat supported).
      2.) His annoying obsession with Skylanders. Now granted I haven't played any of the games and don't have the right to judge them because of this fact, but he really seems to have an obnoxious love for this franchise, hyping the games/figures up every chance he gets.
      1.) Bashing Nintendo for being "kiddy", showing that he has no knowledge that Nintendo is all about making games for everyone, from kids to adults. This point is only made more stupid and nonsensical due to his infatuation with Skylanders. I guess part of the reason this is my worst moment is because I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy.

      Delete
    2. honestly tough, his E-Begging "SPOOF" is to me his lowest thing not only of this year, but also for ever.

      Delete
    3. Also being added to my list:
      3. The increased amount of depravity demonstrated by his fans. Its a sad sad day when person dedicates a youtube video with a message that calls us all circle jerks. It's also incredibly sad that people don't even bother to check the content of the blog and instead just write it off as some sort of hate machine. They say its the year 2013 now yet it appears they are still living in the 1950's where it was okay to write everyone into neat compact categories.

      Delete
    4. OK. I'm ready with my worst Irate Gamer moments of 2012.
      15. The revisions of the second episode of HOVG.
      14. The review of Dead or Alive 5.
      13. The review of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
      12. The Colorforms Irate the 80s.
      11. HOVG Fairchild Channel F.
      10. Silver Surfer Review. Still dragging out his storyline, doing a game already covered by a certain other video game reviewer (I think he's the one that's expecting his first child), and a fight with a Pixel Demon that is neither pixelated nor demonic.
      9. E-begging spoof. So much for "I haven't watched him in two years." This is just bandwagoning for views at this point.
      8. All the E3 videos. Do I need to explain these?
      7. The Hunger Games rant. He doesn't know what he's talking about; bashing a good movie for no other reasons besides his perceived vertigo not enjoying the shaky cam. He didn't seem to have any problems with the Transformers movies; which are far worse in that regard. Also, once again not reading the book cost him.
      6. Real Real Gaming. More like Fake Fake Gaming. At least the Mario sketches somewhat followed the context of the games. This is practically Seltzer and Friedberg level of bad.
      5. X-Men Review. This was the regular Irate Gamer episode I hated the most this year. Beating up the X-Men is one thing (furthering his status as a Gary Stu); but the one-man show act of 15 characters is just sad. I mean, I watched DLAbaoqu's riff of the episode, and he couldn't even bring himself to get LadyBuggin to play Storm.
      4. TMNT Comics Irate the 80s. He already got on my bad side by panning the NES version of the TMNT arcade game; now he's onto other parts of TMNT lore. It's not just the recycling the parts from his other TMNT Archie review; it's the lack of knowledge on the Mirage comics. The way he disliked the Mirage comic and praised the Archie one; he doesn't know what he's talking about. He also appeared to be unaware of the TMNT show that just came out this year (I asked about it in the comments, but no one ever got back to me; not even LadyBuggin mocking me.).
      3. Praising Ninja Gaiden III. Liking a horrible game really angered the Ninja Gaiden fanbase in the same manner that panning Tekken 6 got him on the bad side of the Tekken fanbase. My theory is, Tecmo knew the game was getting slammed, and they decided to send a copy to Bores, knowing they could dupe him.
      2. The obsession with Skylanders. I have been incredibly reluctant to join the Skylanders craze, and Bores' constant videos have done nothing to change my mind. In fact, I'm now even less willing to do so; because this ties in to my top moment:
      1. The repeated insistence of Nintendo is kiddy. This is nonsense for several reasons: 1. The company brought the term "Nintendo Hard" into the English language. 2. They make games to appeal to everyone. 3. The Call of Duty comparison of sales makes no sense, because CoD has to bring out a new game every year, while Nintendo games like Mario, Zelda, and Pokémon can continue to sell throughout a console generation.
      There. I got that off my chest. I'll be sure to remember all this when it's time to officially give my piece for the worst Irate Gamer moments of 2012, Dan.

    5. Top 5 Worst Irate Gamer Sucks Blog Moments:

      5. Obsessing over a guy who is completely irrelevent

      4. Defending shitty reviewers in a dying genre (Angry reviewing)

      3. Getting outright hostile when anyone questions those reviewers you defend

      2. Getting hostile when your obsession over the irrelevant guy is questioned and pointed out to be dumb

      1. Really this has gone on for what 5 years? Who cares about Chris Bores? In that matter, who cares about James Rolfe or TGWTG's entire ensemble of terrible people? Get your priorities straight.

      Delete
    6. Your whole argument is based on "who cares?" .... Considering there's an entire blog article on him and a large portion of his comments section on new videos is controversy sometimes related to this blog, I would say enough people care. Look you're coming over to this blog to complain about us complaining. Don't you see the hypocrisy there? Just because a reviewer doesn't appeal to you doesn't make him 'shitty'. Research errors, ignoring blatant facts, and never owning up to your mistakes out of arrogance does. And if you want to see hostile go to the irate gamer's comment section. We don't call anyone hater natzi's etc etc (ladybuggin777).

      As I said before. You feel it nesasary for whatever reason to come on this blog and complain about people complaining and tell us we need to get our priorities straight? This blog has nothing to do with you. You are not the subject matter. So if you hate this blog so much, just leave. No one is forcing you to read it. If you really don't care about Irate Gamer or AVGN then why even care if this blog exist? Unless your a fanboy who gets sick of seeing "Irate Gamer Sucks" as the 3rd google result every time you vainly check for a new video from your messiah... The latter is most likely.

      "Nitpicking every little thing" Uh huh. Nitpicking counts as pointing out major mistakes and 'flawls'.

      "give it a rest" I don't think you know what that phrase means. It implies that you care for us and are concerned about our health. Obviously you do not and are just being a ego centric asshole who doesn't want other people to do what they want. Apparently that bothers you. I apologize that we do things that do not penalize you in any way and disturb you because you are incapable of recognizing that people can have tastes other than yours. For that I am sorry, and am ashamed to admit that I am different from you and will continue down my dark path of having my own life style.

      I appreciate your concern but I have needs that cannot be satisfied by being a prick such as you. The fact that you are such a prick not only penalizes me as you have painted me as a loser but also disturbs me with your insensitivity. Oh brother, I cannot believe you zealots are still complaining about the fact that there are people in the world that have interests that don't match yours. You keep nitpicking every little part of our culture without giving any idea about how to improve the blog or what we really should be doing. It's almost 2013, I didn't know humanity still cherished ideals such as ethnocentrism and vapid self-interest. I believe it is time to give it a rest.

      If they actually cared about stopping this blog they'd stop using straw arguments and do more than a single line of dialogue that boils down to "you guys suck for being committed to this. stop having commitments.". Obvious troll is obvious and no one is fooled by them or their laughable attempts to fake multiple accounts to look like the majority.

      The logic of the people who hate the blog is that the blog should stop because its existence promotes something that effects them on a personal level (I.E the KKK Blog would logically increase hatecrimes against blacks). But most of them can't explain that and even then most of them can't link the blog and a problem they're having. They act as if the blog can't be ignored and that people will read things they don't care about.

It's time to put this blog of yours down.

    2. "you are still giving him revenue"

      You kidding? Dan's synopsis and bit by bit analysis of his videos removes the need to watch the videos. Irate gamer makes pathetic amounts of money anyway. If your gonna argue that he's making money off this then you'd better use numbers because Irate gamer is probably making pennies off whatever idiots are encouraged to watch his videos.

      "It's time to put this blog of yours down."
      Yes, so people can't see why Irate gamer is a fucking mess and so his fans can spam other people's channels with "Irate gamer is better" and he can get revenue that way. It should be noted that Irate gamer's subs have declined with the blog's activity.

Bad start, i actually know the guy little more than you and he's nowhere near to be a hipster but i guess you couldn't think about any better insult at the moment *sigh*. " It's time to put this blog of yours down. " But he did! Of course you don't do any research, i mean, why should you. Allow me to enlighten you, Dan decided to stop with this blog in the past, yet his viweres/followers etc. asked him to continue. So he keeps doing it for them. Maybe you should direct your angry comment to those who follow the blog and enjoy it? It realy comes down to this, if there are people who enjoy the content - the blog will stay.

    2. He's a troll. He bashes all of the modern Sonic games because Sonic's character design is different than the design from the classic games. He claims that Mario and Zelda are the only good games.
      Honestly I stopped watching his videos and caring about him all together last year, so I don't know if he has changed or not.

      Delete
    3. Let's see. Mariotehplumber...

      ... makes slightly IG-ish reviews with "This game is pretty good, but compared to the other games in the series, it's utter shit. No please allow me to rant about this game for the next couple minutes till my previous 'it's actually pretty good'-statement looks like a joke"-logic. He even ranted about the slightly different Sonic sprites in the old games Oo

      ... makes LPs of him sucking hard. Doesn't help that his vocabulary only seems to consist of "I own this shit!" and "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!"

      ... rants about pointless crap to the point he almost starts cryin. The fuck Oo ?

      ... complains the new Sonic looks "too Anime", even though Anime doesn't use nearly as many anthropomorphic animals as western cartoons, the few they have are more of the short and chubby variety, and the new Sonic seems more Warner-Bros.-ish (as opposed to the more Disney-ish chubby one). It'd be "too Anime" if he were suddenly turned into a Shounen-Action-Boy with spiky blue hair.
      And now I realize I put way too much thought into this oO

      I didn't need to look at many of his videos before I decided the rest won't be any better.

    4. Most signs point to him being a troll, but on the other hand he blocked DLAaboaqu for his comments. Trolls look forward to getting negative comments, so why would he suddenly block this guy?

      "pointed out to be dumb" implies that its true, unless you haven't been listening to other people this blog, you'd know we're angry because people who share your opinion didn't even bother to check if we're actually obsessed.

      "obsession over the irrelevant guy" If you had been paying any attention we've repeatedly proven that he's not irrelevant.

      Go ahead and keep making statements just to be rude and offensive. I'll just keep calming telling you exactly where your logic fails.

      I also believe you good sir are proving my point about people such as you sharing the common trait of ethnocentrism.

      Delete
    2. 200 blog posts, buddy, on one man is obsessive. Those 200 blog posts could have been used to talk about anything, but BatDan has chosen to make every single one of them about Chris Bores. And as for irrelevant, BatDan continues to post gleefully that Chris is losing subscribers and views so plus most of his current videos are in the 10000 view order of magnitude which is way down from his high of millions of views so I don't think he is as relevant as you think.

      "Ethnocentrism" doesn't mean how you used it.

      Delete
    3. "200 blog posts, buddy"
      There's the problem right there. How many years has it been? what is the average time between releases of Irate gamer videos? 200 blog posts of varying length over a 5 year period using basic math amounts to 0.1 posts a day. If that number were higher, like above 1, then you'd have a point. It doesn't take more than an hour to write a wall of text. Its certainly not obsessive to commit to something that takes almost no time to do and rarely requires you to do anything. Heck 200 blog pages. A good chunk of those were from the old blog 2 years ago. So that's 7 years for 200 pages, some of which are less than 1000 words. Production of pages are down this year too with at least 3 pages being simple 'has anything happened yet?'.

      ""Ethnocentrism" doesn't mean how you used it."

      Uh no, I did use it properly. Ethnocentrism is the belief that your culture and way of life is the standard for all others. By believing that Batdan can't have his own hobbies or commitments to things which you don't fully understand, you are being very ethnocentric.

      Exactly, my statement is that you don't intend to do good with your statements. Instead you wish to spread hate and anger by spreading information that is false. Had you used evidence to prove that we are obsessed and that Irate gamer is not relevant then you wouldn't be a troll but a person who wishes to debate. You did none of those things and are now threatening to share my statement with people who aren't even involved so they can personally attack me. You cannot use the 'I am not a troll argument' when you are blatantly trolling.

      "from what i can assume, Checking IP's is kinda of............invasory."
      From what point of view? We're checking to see if a single person is intentionally harassing us. Are you saying that its not okay to crackdown on people who are committing unjustified harassment? IP addresses change all the time and don't reveal exact locations. I highly doubt we'd be able to kill anyone with that. Low orbit ion cannon only works if the service provider is stupid enough to let it happen. Invasion would be finding this man/woman's personal details and home address. The IP address would certainly not give those away.

      This blog has over 200 entries about one guy. Blogs tend to diversify over time because the author tends to get new interests, but BatDan has stayed target fixated on one person. I didn't think it was that necessary to point out that this blog has been around since 2009 and every single article has been about one man and his videos about video games of all things. That's what I would call obsessive.

      Ahem, The subject matter of this blog is Irate gamer. If we diversified, how exactly would we stay true to our mission objective?

  14. Look, I'm gonna be real honest here. I get what you are trying to do here. I get that you are pointing out the faults of a guy who you don't like. But now it seems borderline desperate and obsessive and sad. It seems now you are looking for nitpicks just to fill out an article which a normal person would probably overlook.

    If you were to diverse and talk about other people, even people you like, and talk how they could do better, this blog would probably not get the ridicule it does from people who look at you and just see a sad pack of people who cannot live with Chris Bores. Just some advice, take it for what you will.

    1. See that the good work I'm talking about here. Not the "oh look you suck shit" crap that just makes people harden up and reject change. Kudos to you for trying to make a change!

      While I'm not batdan, I can sadly say that the blog probably won't make any changes anytime soon. Sure we focus on Irate gamer but that's because people on this blog like reading his mistakes in depth. A lot of the mistakes Batdan points out aren't nitpicks (though some can be considered to be).

      While we could talk about other people, the problem is who? The mission objective of the blog is to show the exploits of Irate Gamer and his apparent mission to flood youtube with low quality videos that spread hate. Irate gamer is still spreading hate today; Either through ladybuggin or his fans who are bombarding people's channels with "irate gamer is better" nonsense.

      The Idea that the blog would get less flak by having more targets is ridiculous. Imagine if we were to focus on Mariotehplumber or someone equally infamous. We'd still get craptons of flak for it anyway. We'd still be getting 6 people every week coming on with their fake accounts and putting up some trivial nonsense about why we should stop. The fact that we focus on just Irate gamer is just a repeated springboard excuse that's fairly popular at the moment. I believe the statement "the more things change, the more things stays the same" is the most proper analogy of this scenario. If we switch to another person, we'll be getting trolls of Irate Gamer AND that other person while using some other excuse.

      Man this one was a long one.

    2. I think you are confusing who gets hate here. Sure you get 6 people who laugh at you for talking about Bores but, have you read Chris's comments? I nearly every other one spouts off about how he "ripped off" James or something about how he sucks (And, no I am not getting into who ripped off who, I know the history and I don't think it matters here in 2012-13, they have both evolved to different styles).

      As for who to do, just type in "Video game review" into the search box and go nuts. Hell, IGN or Kotaku could have their mistakes pointed out or you could talk about how James could have done better and where he was wrong or where Noah Antwiler sucked. At this point anything would be better than this.

      Delete
    3. "early every other one spouts off about how he "ripped off" James"
      I'm pretty sure we're past this phase. Ripping off AVGN has been dicussed in this blog and has maintained a rather minimal presence in recent pages.

      "or something about how he sucks"
      Well then that would be every comment against him ever then wouldn't it? That's nothing special then. Of course every comment that criticizes him is gonna say he sucks.

      "As for who to do, just type in "Video game review" into the search box and go nuts."
      You don't get my point. This blog is commited to looking over his mistakes. I guess we could have a name change but really that's batdan's decision. Even then it would be Cartoon network being changed to CN real. I'm not sure if it would go well with the other readers of the blog.

  16. All in all I believe the 'your obsessed' excuse is dead right about now. The problem is that its a circular argument. The main draw of the site is that Irate gamer's failures will be depicted and analyzed. Similarly, Cartoon network's main draw is to show cartoons. Neither of the two can be described as obsessed as obsession means that it is counterproductive and damages success. On the contrary the blog owes it success to staying on its subject matter. Had Batdan decided to blog about his breakfast or that hoe he used for gardening, this blog success would not be guaranteed.

    This is why people who use this argument can't make successful critique of the blog. This argument can't ever be used properly because its a circular argument. We're obsessed because we're obsessed. It's what we do and thus we do it meaning we're obsessed. So then... how do we break the circle of this illogical argument? You can't... if we were to do something else then we're no longer Irate gamer sucks blog. Similarly if Cartoon Network decides to not show cartoons then they're CN Real, one of the most hated and controversial change in the history of network programming.

    Its called circular logic because its flawed people. Its not real and its not justifiable.

      If you want to say you've succeeded, then yes while this blog was up Chris's viewership has dropped by a factor of at least 100. Congratulations, but that still doesn't excuse the point that on its face, attacking one guy over and over again is counterproductive.

      So, no we are not saying that you are obsessed because you write about Bores and therefore you are Obsessed. We are saying you are obsessed because your entire purpose is outdated and irrelevant.

    3. Now is this blog a product of obsession? Maybe, maybe not. But lets look at James or Doug. People says "Those two make mistakes, but you don't call them out on it"

      A. They are more willing to admit mistakes or don't make the effort to hide their errors.

      In fact, there's that one time where Chris said that the Genesis was produced after the SNES. Now he didn't just get the fact wrong, but after people called him out on in, he actually tried to insist his inaccuracy was a fact. Have Doug or James ever pulled that stunt?

      B. Now I have yet to hear a conclusive answer, but are their factual mistake as frequent as Bores? I can't really say because no one goes into serious detail on their mistakes.

      That said, again maybe this blog is a product of obsession, but at least Batdan is backing up his criticism with detail rather than saying "Chris makes a lot of mistakes in his video" without any detail.


      But then as if he made a blog entry every day or more than one per day, I'd be more inclined to brush it off as an obsession.

    4. Let me educate you on how the real world works:

      In many cases, yes, being respectful can get you change. Being respectful is wonderful and people may listen to you.

      However, in many other places voicing your concern respectfully will get you ignored because of the many people who will tell the person you are trying to criticize that you are wrong and everything they do is roses, for an example look at the Forums of TGWTG or TV Tropes where being respectful will get you ignored. Therefore, sometimes more drastic and harsher measures are used when you want your voice heard. Do you think that Upton Sinclair was Respectful when he described disgusting work conditions of meat packing plats in the Early 20th Century? No, he was trying to make a point and get people to listen. In many cases that is how people like me feel. We have tried to be respectful and are constantly ignored. Now we are loud.

      Delete
    5. "Sinclair famously lamented in The Cosmopolitan Magazine in October 1906: "I aimed at the public's heart, and by accident I hit it in the stomach.""

      Being sensationalist and misrepresenting the facts will get people to spring to action. But more often then not it just causes panic and make people take the wrong move.

      Loud and drastic measures should only be taken when the intended effect is clear and guaranteed. Sin clair got lucky in that people wanted to get industrial regulations and it was sensational enough to get the intended results. But it earned him ire from the people who did do something.

      Similarly here, had your opinion been backed up by fact and not circular reasoning, we would probably make changes but be pissed at you for calling us the literal equivalent for rednecks.

      Delete
    6. Also Antiyonder, yes Doug and James make just as many mistakes as Chris but they don't have as many people willing to point out every mistake.

      Delete
    8. Douche McNitpick is the joke he makes to represent the fans who don't understand that his show is a quick synopsis of the movie and not meant to analyze the things he can't make fun of. Like that one guy who had to point out that it was the guy who was skating to work that caused Dexter Reed to crash. Its not an important detail and yet he acted like it ruined the review. There's pointing out the major flaw and then there's complaining that the color is a bit too blue.

    9. @ unfortunate
      Please reply to the appropriate section in order to keep the debate readable.

      Yes it is circular reasoning. The purpose of the blog is dumb because the purpose of the blog is dumb. The blog should stop because there's no reason for it to keep going because there's no reason for it to keep going. Your premise is also your conclusion and that is the very definition of circular reasoning.

      If the purpose of the blog was irrelevant then why do we have people reading it daily?

      The ratio between Batdan and chris doesn't matter since Batdan's posts can often times be very very short.

      Well I'm going to sleep now. I'll be back in 8 hours or so. Keep it civil guys.

    10. Unfortunate: True, but evidently by our discussion, taking the rude, aggressive approach doesn't always work either.

      And by your own admission, civility can work at times. Even then, being civil doesn't mean you can't be loud.

      Regardless, I'd say that one should still try the respectful approach first depending on the circumstances of course.

      I mean for all intents and purposes, can you honestly say that Batdan's blog is anywhere near problematic as opposed to a meat packing plant with poor working conditions?

      Douche represents the less appealing fans, not the entire fanbase. I mean for crying outloud, you have some fans who for example will critique a video for no other reason than "He didn't like my favorite movie/show" and fans who flatout think that their favorite movies/shows should be off-limits for a critical review. But if you went with that logic, everything should be off-limits.

      There's the positive feedback and suggestions we offer to Bores (usually for his editing skills and occasional toy reviews).

      Occasionally we'll talk about other reviewers, good or bad. There's a bad habit of letting reviewers even worse than Bores shoehorn themselves into our conversations for publicity, but we're trying to kick it.

      We share other entertaining things, I share my indie game projects. Some of the readers here do reviews. When we find something amusing online we'll sometimes post it here.

      And yet you say I'm obsessed for pointing out that everyone who got the memo that Chris doesn't know what he is talking about, got it and this blog can move on to greener pastures?

    4. "It seems to me that when Chris decides to stop doing his videos, you guys will still be raging and re-"analyzing" his videos to make sure you document every word."

      Except we don't do that. If you had been pay attention to how we operate we don't redo videos unless Batdan deleted the article from his previous blog. This is what I mean by ethnocentrism. Who are you to suggest that we will keep doing that and refuse to move on? What evidence do you have that we will never give up and that Irate gamer isn't important? We have evidence that Irate gamer is important; IG is still active and he is still churning out videos that seem to only exist to piss off more people. His egotism is even worse this year as he tries to get his haunted investigators movie onto netflix. 30-40 thousand people is still quite a bit of people watching a man who apparently isn't relevant.

      Again this is circular logic. You're saying we should stop doing because people get it and are tired of getting it. But why do people get it, because this blog (and others) exists to tell people information that helps them get it. Simple logic dictates we can compress this to 'people are tired of hearing about the irate gamer because people are tired about hearing about the irate gamer'.

      It doesn't help that you're still treating us with the word obsessed. We're not exactly losing our lives to this commitment. Using the word raging isn't much of an improvement either.

    5. "So I pay attention to this blog for the first time in years"
      Oh and there we go. So you are essentially admitting that you don't understand the situation, you don't understand the history of the blog and you don't understand its community.

      It doesn't help that you start with a comment that references my comment. So you took the time to read this page but not any other and decided to stalk us by referencing my comment which was meant to bring up discussion about the some of the worst acts Chris has done this year. Any one of those worst acts would make Chris relevant.

      But you just jump in here not knowing who we are or why we do this and how many people have been run off of youtube thanks to Irate gamer and just start throwing accusations of negative traits around. That is A TEXTBOOK EXAMPLE of ethnocentrism. Its not alright for us to have our own hobby and community dedicated to tracking a person's mistakes. But its alright for you, someone who barely knows the situation to come in and start laying down the law and demanding changes. YES YOU ARE VERY OBSESSED IF YOU ONLY FOUND OUT NOW AND ARE ATTACKING US BASED ON OUR NAME AND WHAT LITTLE YOU KNOW ABOUT OUR CULTURE. I wasn't angry when you used non-sense circular arguments. I wasn't angry when you started with a list of things that pissed you off. I've had it now that you've admitted that you don't understand the situation by only giving us this one bit of attention over the 6 years we've been in operation.

      You know the line "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all" well that line was there to keep people who don't know what's going on from embarrassing themselves but pointing out flaws that don't exist because they LACK UNDERSTANDING OF THE SITUATION.

      You are always free to try again friend but hopefully next time you won't you shoot yourself in the foot about 4-5 times.

    6. definition from a textbook
      obsess:
      "Preoccupy or fill the mind of (someone) continually, intrusively, and to a troubling extent"

      By choosing to tackle a situation which you know nothing about and don't even understand the simplest aspects of it you have demonstrated a suicidal level of commitment to the cause. You have chosen to fill your mind with so much hate and anger against the Irate gamer sucks blog that you didn't even have any facts to cover your arguments and the one's you came up with later weren't impressive either. You were so convinced that we were obsessed and had to be stopped that you didn't even notice that you didn't have an argument to begin with. Obsession, the filling of ones mind with a notion that proves counterproductive due to how much emphasis is placed on it. You are so obsessed with believing that our blog is so obsessed that you can't even rationalize it when we ask you to. That is obsession and you are clearly demonstrating it right now.

      y won't stop talking about x because they're obsessed."

      Except his argument is that y should stop talking about x because if not y becomes irrelevant since x is irrelevant. But that means that x=y which is a circular argument. Or maybe my logic classes haven't been teaching me the right things.

  20. Hello there. Long time follower, first time commenter.

    Just want to say that I strongly support the Irate Gamer Sucks blog. I don't consider the subject matter to be irrelevant and outdated in any way.

    Actually, from where I stand, this is a big reason this blog isn't necessarily irrelevant or obsessive. As long as Chris refuses to improve his work or continue it even in small amounts, the blog does have some merit.

    Now if he was to actually make strong efforts to improve his work or quit altogether, then I would see the merit in insisting that Batdan is obsessed.

  22. Anybody remember that old show, Video Power? I found some episodes on youtube a little while ago and was kinda struck by how the host would do "reviews" by pointing out very obvious features of a game and hamming it up the whole time. Sort of like someone occasionally mentioned around here.

  23. This has to be the most insane yet ignorant blog on the internet since CWCki.

    1. You made your point about the Irate Gamer 5 years ago. This blog is just overkill not to mention there are hundreds of other places I can go where I can go to learn about him that do a better job(e.g. ED, indb, etc.) and most importantly it's not tl;dr

    2. James is making hundreds of thousands if not millions a year from what he is doing. It was just revealed social blade dot com that he makes as much as $1.1 million from his youtube ad revenue alone and that's not counting his donations, revenues from other websites including his own, AVGN product sales, etc.

    Then you idiots give him even more money because you believe he didn't have enough money to do this on his own. So of you even thought he was not worth much money. I read on some website not so long ago (I'll post the link when I can find it) that he could be worth between $5M~$10M. He could have paid for the budget out of his pocket no problem. Then to add to even add more lulz when he reached his goal initially you continued to give him even more money.

    James is using you guys and if you think he even gives one shit about you as fans you are retarded.

    3. Speaking of the Movie I've been working in the entertainment industry on and off for about 15 years so I'm not talking out of my ass when I say that the movie doesn't cost the $400K that he raised.

    Just to be sure I asked some of my indie director friends and they think the budget was between $75K and maybe as much as $150K. Something you AVGN fanboys don't take in to account when watching a movie is how much of the set, props and staff is donated. Most of you people who watch trailers think this must of have cost a lot of money and you'd be sorely mistaken. It's not uncommon for even big movies to get huge donations and in returned whatever company, organization, etc. donated to the film gets put in the special thanks section of the credits. Happens all the time.

    Well I'll let you guys continue sucking on James' nobb because no matter what I or anyone else says you'll still continue to believe you are doing gods work. LOL!

    2. "You made your point about the Irate Gamer 5 years ago."

      Why do haters keep getting hung up on that? Why is that important here but not on the things they review? Why, Robocop 3 for the NES hasn't been relevant for going on 20 years now! How dare I keep mentioning the Dresden Files in my blog posts, that series started 12 years ago even though new content's still being made for it! What exactly is your definition of irrelevant?

      "there are hundreds of other places I can go where I can go to learn about him that do a better job(e.g. ED, indb, etc.)"

      So go there. If you think we're so stupid and out of it, what does it say about you that you have nothing better to do than come here and try to throw it back in our faces? What's indb, anyway?

      "peaking of the Movie I've been working in the entertainment industry on and off for about 15 years so I'm not talking out of my ass when I say that the movie doesn't cost the $400K that he raised."

      Oh yeah? Who are you? What have you worked on? Where can I go to verify that? Who are these people you know who gave this information? What are their credentials? Dude, you come here to tell us we don't know what we're talking about, and then you expect us to swallow your blind assurance that you know what you're talking about? If I had a dollar for every asshole on the internet who claimed to be a lawyer...

He's passe as a matter of fact if it wasn't for you guys irate gamer would have been doomed to obscurity years ago. The only reason he's making videos is because he knows you guys will whine and bitch about it.

      As for who I am I do odd jobs in and around Hollywood. I've built sets, worked on props and I've even directed and acted in a couple of pieces. I'm going to remain anonymous for now because I don't want my indie friends to know that I'm commenting on a obscure thinks they know-it-all blog. The only thing I will say is they've submitted films to Sundance and the like and that's the only clue I'm giving.

      Uh yeah, you lost all creditability when you listed ED. yeah because Irate gamer really does sux cocks.

      "revealed social blade dot com that he makes as much as $1.1 million from his youtube ad revenue alone"
      Social blade does not provide accurate statistics for how much money a person makes. Smosh only makes 100k and yet social blade states they make millions. Please use a primary source.
      The rest of your argument crashes because AVGN doesn't actually make a million dollars. That would be even more than Doug walker and doug makes more content more often and has a site full of other shit too.

      "Speaking of the Movie I've been working in the entertainment industry on and off for about 15 years so I'm not talking out of my ass when I say that the movie doesn't cost the $400K that he raised.

      Where the hell have you been working and who did you talk to? This makes no sense. The average game costs 1 million dollars now. Even indie games need 500k. The days where movies could be made on less than 100K were years ago. Inflation has increased that amount by a factor or 5.

      I looked up the AVGN and watched his videos when I found out about this whole controversy. Some things I noticed that really contrast him with the Irate Gamer. First off yes the effects are very low quality (as is the Irate Gamers) But I noticed he didn't brag on them or try to sell them like they were professional (or lie about college). He seemed to realize it was crap but something I noticed was actual effort. He explained what was actually wrong with a lot of the games. And I saw some episodes where he seemed to be grasping at straws. Now take those two flaws and make an entire career out of it and you have Chris. Chris thinks his effects are amazing... they are crap... He does nothing but insult the game giving us no reason to hate it other than "trust me. It's bad!" AVGN seems to target people with quality and facts (though he wasn't right all of the time) Whereas Chris seems to aim for a more cult like following. All in all, while I'm no means a fan of either, AVGN tries to make a good product while Chris tries to make you think his product is good. I would go with AVGN any day.

      I don't even think you need to put that much effort. The troll's argument is practically 'I'm a god' therefore I'm always right. He says we shouldn't defend him by replying to him even though he's the one putting invasive misinformed and insulting comments. And to top it off he specifically stopped replying when I stopped talking to him. I think someone realized I like writing long amount of why someone's logic fails and decided to exploit it.

      Fair enough. I'm a pretty big fan of the Nerd, but I'm not going to persecute someone for not being a fan. I just don't like it when people treat him like the antichrist for a something that clashes with some incredibly contrived code of ethics (accepting donations is bad because...?). I fail to see how believing James Rolfe to be a decent human being is the same as worshiping him as a god or whatever all these haters seem to think.

    2. I don't know if it will be any good. My dmom used to read me the hobbit and I'm not sure if it's action packed enough to make up 3 movies. To me it seems like a trilogy of just the Fellowship of the Ring.. Minus Amon Hen since that was actually a part of The Two Towers.

    4. I read the entire book, but I don't remember any of it (that was all the way back in grade 6). I do remember certain sequences such as the part where he gets lost in a cave or the part where he tries to go invisible in front of the red dragon and the red dragon just says "yeah that won't fucking work you loser". I'm not sure if I was reading the right book though, cause the hobbit had the ring of invisibility and he even met gollum or some other crazy goblin like guy. No dark riders though.

      I remember the dos game more fondly. Hours of progress lost when the archer was asked to shoot red dragon and he replied with "I won't do it" followed by you were burned to a crisp. Or my favorite the elven jailkeeper who can imprison you and then imprison several other dangerous creatures after (or before) you are placed in the same prison cell including the balrog. Thought King's quest games were bad? This game can kill you just because it felt like it. Beating this game is like infesting madgascar in pandemic.

  35. As far as providing other things that help to make James' videos better, and to give my two cents on the angry reviewing style. I don't think it needs to flat out die. Just not be relied on in the same way that Cartoon Network relies too much on comedy cartoons

    That and it's a matter of doing it right. To use another example for a moment, Gamedude. His complaints are about things that really don't effect the gameplay in a negative manner. Like spending the first two minutes of his Mickey Mousecapade review complaining about the title.

    Or to look at Chris' review of SMB2. It pretty much boils down to "It's different, therefore it sucks". Now when James covers Castlevania 2 or Zelda 2, he actually has a lot to say about them.

    Are things like the gripes about the day/night feature nitpicky? Maybe. But at least he's nitpicking about the gameplay.

    As for this HD Revision of Part 2B, yeah, as predicted, it's really dull. Seriously, there really is no point for Bores to do these revisions.

    Also, guess what? An update to the Megaman 9 Endless Mode Secret hunt. Somebody found a cheat code that can help the player go up to 99,999 screens but of course...nothing happened. The people at Gametrailers submitted the record to Capcom but a few weeks later, the response they received was extremely vague. Thus, further convincing the theory that there really is NO secret. There is a VERY small chance there IS a secret but it's best that everybody should move on. Even if there was a secret, it's really no big deal at all or maybe Capcom is just being dishonest.

      My opinion, Bores is on the verge of obscurity. He's declining fast. I'd say give it another two years at most and he will be left with only a handful of his die-hard fans (Incompetent 12-year-olds).

      Honestly, the best part about it, is that it is mostly his fault. Bores has the poorest work ethic of any YouTube "celebrity" I have seen. Rather than take advantage of his "fame" and please his audience, he is instead pissing it away by only uploading content when he wants (A few times a year). Now he's becoming obsolete, and rather than creating frequent content, doing Q&As or making guest appearances in other peoples videos, he is instead spreading hate and trolling everyone in a pathetic attempt to look like the greatest video game reviewer on the website.

      Bores is sinking, and he will only have his self to blame. Granted, he will probably blame others for his demise and yet again refuse to take responsibility.

    3. His mother will probably blame me for everything. I'm her scapegoat.

    4. It's funny how Chuggaaconroy owned Irategamer without mentioning him by name. Props!

      I agree with everything you said. Chris will only be irrelevant when he fails at everything even trolling. Its only a matter of time now.

    2. Does this mother fucker have some sort of fetish for Skylanders?

      Delete
    3. Just as boring and pointless as the other Skylanders figure videos.
      Without a doubt, this obsession with Skylanders is one of IG's worst moments of this year.

  40. I remember looking at Irategamer's Facebook page about 2 weeks ago and seeing something interesting. After linking the video where he gives results to his previous contest, one of his fans left this comment:
    "I hope soon a contest for a Nintendo Wii U. That would be nice!"
    Ha ha, ha, like that would ever happen. Why would Chris shell out hundreds of dollars for a Wii U console only to give it away in a contest? I mean, it's not like he is as big as other reviewing sites (like IGN for example) where companies will send them games and consoles early. I can list four reasons why I doubt this "Wii U contest" will ever happen:
    1.) He is not a gamer and doesn't care for anything related to videogames (Skylanders is an exception).
    2.) He only cares for his hardcore fans.
    3.) He hates Nintendo for being "kiddy" (GAH!)
    4.) He is an all-out Playstation 3 fanboy.
    Sorry if this went too far off-topic. I just thought I would let anyone here know in case they didn't already know.

  41. I have had a lot of spare time the past week so I figured I would mess with bores.
    I acted like a non existant charity based in Ohio so this is what happened.
    I ask him to appear in a video for the state of Ohio because he is a "Internet celebrity"
    He answers: Sorry for my belated response. I was out of town attending a few business meetings. Anything else you can tell me about this fundraiser would be great. I'd like to do more research
    LAWL BUSINESS MEETINGS,
    I then give him some false info of the non exisetnt charity.
    He sends this over.
    "thanks for the info, send over your 503c paperwork and we'll get started"
    I don't do taxes yet but I am pretty sure that the 501 (c) (3) is some sort of tax deduction.
    I then ask for his mailing address (I really had no intentions of even caring to look it up or post his address it was just to trick him)
    He replies
    I do a lot of work with charitable organizations throughout the year. Your answer is highly suspicious. If you can't produce the simple information I'm requesting
    That's the end of the emails.
    Hope you get a kick out of it like I did.
    I only did this because the lack of videos he has been doing this year :p

      I was once a hardcore fan but now you do way to many of these Skylanders videos. Grow up already. Unsubscribed.
      Some say James is losing views and fans for what he has done recently yet Chris is just losing them every second.

    3. He has made enough Skylanders videos to make a series out of it. He can call it "History of Skylanders"!

    4. He should make a spinoff series regarding Skylanders.

  43. Welcome back as I did sortve cut out in my previous messages the boring parts Buggin has just proved himself to in fact be the Irategamer.

    "Hey Asa, here is a new low for you from the IGsucksbloggers. WOWZERS (in cognito)emailed IG with a fake email claiming to be the Red Cross begging him to be in a video that they are making and claiming they got avgn and a couple other UTube celebs. to agree to do it also. Of Course IG wasnt so easily fool as he would not send along the forms needed by email he said he would only send them to his home address. Now WOWZERS is bragging on the blog of how he did this BTW IG knew from the get go"
    "claiming to be redcross"
    Nope.
    "He wasn't fooled"
    Actually he was.
    "Bragging"
    Actually I am marveling at the stupidity of Bores.
    Oh my another part.
    "continued ... that it was fraudulent email and reported WOWZERS fraundulent email to The OFFICAL Red Cross Organization. I don't think wowzer realizes it is a federal offense to impersonate a charitable organization. Imagine Wowzers surprise when he is confronted with legal action from the Red Cross & the IRS. Guess the joke will be on wowzer, and not on IG, won't it ~ LOL ~ WTG IrateGamer slam them haters ~"
    "Fraud"
    More of a "lie" but you need fraud to sound more dramatic.
    "Send an email to the redcross"
    Right even though I never claimed to be them also they probably could care less right now even if I did..
    Oh guys this just proves ladybuggin is bores.
    I never mentioned some of the parts she pointed out so she either has access to Bores email account or (the obvious) SHE IS CHRISTOPHER BORES.
    Chris you were a fool making that comment you just proved to everyone who you really are.
    A cowardice asshole who impersonates his mother.

    1. We don't need to send Bores deceptive messages for him to make a fool out of himself, so why bother? It's just an opportunity for people to blow it out of proportion and target us.
      Observe him, critique him, even respond to him if he reaches out to you, but don't lie to and provoke him.

    Previously Blade was cornered by the trio of assholes The Penguin! (Assreali) The Riddler! (Ladybuggin777) And the kite man! (Batdanm because he isn't really known by anyone anymore)
    Lol. Anyway As has now claimed this is just a hate blog justifying the abuse of Irategamer. I honestly do not want to live on this planet anymore if he spews such stupidity.
    Oh and Buggin called me a spawn of satan (How classy!)
    And Batdanm tried calling me a AVGN fan but I really don't think he realized what he has been doing for quite a while now.

    1. " Anyway As has now claimed this is just a hate blog justifying the abuse of Irategamer." because you know that makes perfect sense. Let's make a video that inspires hate towards a group of individuals to stop the criticism against a single individual. Makes Perfect sense, I don't see this being hypocritical at all. Especially not hypocritical since they already were making fun of him to begin with. I just don't get it though, why us? Productivity is down this year. If Irate Gamer keeps up his work ethic we'll be out of service in no time flat. Why target us? We'll be dead as soon as Irate Gamer is going to be.

  46. Really Asa? Making another video targetting this blog? Do you want to know why none of us listen to your critiques? Why none of us takes you seriously? Why we continue to hate you?

    Because you pull off this kind of immature stuff which only ends up making you look like the bigger douchebag.

  47. Well it's almost a week until "the world ends", think Bores would make a "spoof video"?
