Cobra's Newest Weapon: A Smear Campaign Against a Good G.I. Joe Game

Bores declaring that this is the “Year of the Irate Gamer” is nothing new. At the end of every year, Bores promises the next one will be his biggest ever, but then he slacks off and ends up putting out less content than before. 2013 has been his worst year yet. We’re four months in and he’s only put out 10 videos, including the subject of this recap.

Going by the title, he’ll be looking at G.I. Joe on the NES. Which one? There’s the first game released in 1991 simply called “G.I. Joe”, and there’s a second game released the following year called “G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor”. Considering the video is only 7:30 long, I seriously doubt he’ll cover both games.

Why do G.I. Joe now? Because the newest movie came out in theaters. I can tell this by the addition of “retaliation” in parenthesis at the end. I love how that part is clearly an afterthought, doing that in the hopes that people will search “G.I. Joe Retaliation” and come across his video. Even though he’s reviewing a game from the 90’s. Bores am smrt!
I wonder, in the alternate timeline where Retaliation wasn’t delayed 9 months, what would Bores be doing now?

0:00 - 0:17: *insert intro here*

0:18 - 1:09: Like last time, IG is doing the NES G.I. Joe because the new movie is out in theaters. Say Bores, why not give us reviews of A Good Day to Die Hard or G.I. Joe Retaliation? Then people wouldn’t give you so much grief for taking over three fucking weeks to release a new video. Given that there was no “Top 10 Summer Movies” list again, it sounds like he’s done with the movie reviews. He might surprise me in May when Iron Man 3 comes out though.

He starts the game and goes over the story, then moves on to the characters. He starts complaining about the roster as they don’t use well-known characters like Roadblock or Shipwreck, and notices they put Blizzard over Snow Job. Here’s something you need to remember (and everyone else too), G.I. Joe is an action figure franchise. Any tie-in media is related to the action figures. Since this game was released in 1991, it’s not related to the show you’re familiar with, specifically the mid-80’s series from Sunbow Productions. There was however a second series from DiC Entertainment running at the time, but again, it’s very likely this game is based on the action figures released at the time. Hell, the Wikipedia article for this game mentions that General Hawk was based in the 1991 action figure.

He begins to think that Snow Job isn’t in the game because his name sounds like blowjob. But before he could finish that thought, a hand comes out of nowhere and puts tape over his mouth. The camera then reveals a poorly animated Flint is in his room giving a PSA about foul language. Is this why the review took so long? This shitty looking Flint?
Bores isn’t even trying with the voice. It’s just his normal voice but more authoritative.

IG walks up to him and tells him to get out the hell out. Since IG is a massive Stu, Flint backs away scared.

1:09 - 1:59: IG starts the game and immediately starts complaining about everything being too hard. This is going to be one of those videos isn’t it?
He brings up how the first boss is a fighter jet, and it looks like he’s jumping into it. You do realize that you’re supposed to avoid the boss right?
He claims the worst part is when you get a game over, you see Cobra Commander laughing at you in front of fire. IG won’t take that and says he can do that too, and for no reason his background explodes into flames. The sad thing is I could tell he was going to do a green screen gag because his flailing hand movements had green on them.

He then claims the jet is Cobra Commander over-compensating for his small penis. How cute, Bores is trying to be edgy again. Still duller than a rock.
Actually, there’s something I noticed. In one of his Skylanders videos, he mentions his girlfriend’s kids. Are they the reason he’s made everything so clean? Are they the reason why his recent output feels less like videos made for the internet and more like cheesy 70’s or 80’s videos your teachers would show you when they don‘t feel like working?

2:00 - 2:30: IG notes that after a while, he notices a pattern. He gets killed, his new character kills the jet, and then another jet flies in. IG takes a glass off his shelf and douses himself with water. Why do you have a glass of water on top of your game shelf? If you want something to drink, get yourself a side table. It seems like a bad idea to put liquids on top of a shelf full of old cartridges.

IG then follows that with another interaction with the narrator bit. Why does he keep doing these? They’re not funny. Unless the fans somehow think that because they’re dumb 11 year old kids that have never seen this type of joke before. It’s called Winnie the Pooh.

2:30 - 3:06: As the … *sighs* narrator pointed out before, it’s on to stage 2.
You need to go around collecting detonators and once you do you can fight the stage boss. IG doesn’t recognize him, and starts gushing over how G.I. Joe has some of the greatest villains in cartoon history yet the game chose “Raptor Man”. Actually it’s just Raptor but whatever…

He then wonders who designed the game. That would be Kindle Imagine Develop, or KID for short. A Japanese company with very few games actually released outside of their native land. They were also behind The Atlantis Factor.

But no, that question was just leading to a CAD-esque “the punchline is violence” bit where a man (Bores in a blonde wig) comes in and says he’s responsible, prompting IG to shoot him with his NES zapper. Then he says “because I don’t like you, here’s one for your ass” as he sticks the Zapper up his ass and shoots him. Complete with squish sound and blood spray. Our hero ladies and gentlemen! A complete psycho. Remind me how he’s the “chosen one” meant to stop the Shadow Overlord and save the world?

3:06 - 4:05: He beats stage 3 (which is actually stage 1-3), and we see the base explode, causing a lot of flashing lights. Instead of a seizure joke, IG just puts on a pair of sunglasses.
He moves on to the next mission, set in Antarctica. He comments on everyone except Blizzard freezing their balls off, then out of nowhere, Sub Zero appears and says Toasty. Oh come on! That one didn’t even make sense! Why was that needed?!

He moves through the level until he gets to the boss, and complains it’s another plane. After a while he runs out of ammo and starts punching it defeating it. Then he claims bullets can’t kill it but punching does. Nooo, just damaging it works. Bullets or fists, you did enough damage after a while to win. It’s like taking out most of a boss with a sub- machinegun, the finishing it with your knife. How this concept is foreign to you after nearly six years of doing this I don’t understand!

Oh and he follows it up with yet another water splash to the face, but this time he follows it with biting his NES controller cord and shocking himself somehow. Wha…?
By the way, build-up to a rule of three gag. Because that seems to be all Bores knows.

4:06 - 4:55: He gets to another stage where has to find detonators (or as he calls it “hide and go shit”), and complains about the plat forming. It doesn’t look that hard really. In fact, I’ve heard this is actually a pretty decent game.
He falls down a part he can’t get out of, wondering how he gets out. At one point saying “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon my way out?” I don’t get it, does he mean kung-fu jump? Your references don’t make sense Bores!
He figures out the grenades go through the floor be he can drop his own f-bomb, then he’s about to “rage” by saying “motherfucker” but cuts himself off. Just say “fuck” you dumb fuck, I don’t know why you’re stopping now. Oh right, your girlfriend’s kids Just tell them not to watch! Is that why your videos now have ratings?

4:56 - 5:37: He moves onto the next stage (which he calls a clusterfuck, oh hey he said it) and blah blah it’s hard and I can’t do it blah blah blah.
He follows it with a montage of him dying and reacting with teeth-baring constipation, I mean anger. He’s also fake playing his controller. Oh man I’ve missed this awfulness, just everything that can go wrong does!
Then he ends this bit by grabbing his NES shelf and tipping it over. Oh yeah, I’m sure that’s doing a lot of good for the games. Just tossing them to the ground like that, go ahead and make all the legit retro game collectors watching cringe. In fact, you don’t care. These games are nothing more than a prop to you. You only use this room for your YouTube job. You don’t actually care about gaming.

5:38 - 6:24: Game Genie time? Nope, instead he just uses a password to skip ahead. Fine, but he better beat the game, he can’t wuss out like he did with Mission: Impossible.
He notes that the elevator sewer level looks similar to the elevator level in The Simpsons Arcade game, but writes it off as a coincidence. As you should, since The Simpsons Arcade game came out a couple months after this one. Also, elevator levels are pretty common.
Then he moves on to the next stage and notes it looks like a stage from Contra. Games having similar levels? Impossible! In fact, why just accuse that stage of ripping off Contra? Go whole hog! Say the entire game is a rip-off since you run around and shoot stuff! Hell, say it rips off Contra Force because of the different characters? Oh what’s that? Contra Force came out a year after G.I. Joe? That’s never stopped Bores!

Then he compares the next level to the desert level from Super Mario Bros. 2. … You need glasses. Those two look nothing alike. Oh he was “joking”. … Knowing your limited knowledge of games, that wouldn’t surprise me.
Oh but wait, he claims that the helicopter follows you around like… Lakitu. … No no no no no no no no NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!
Those two are nothing alike! How do you see that? Also, enemies that follow you around is such a common trope in gaming that…. How do people think you’re legit? I thought you ran out of stupid surprises but… wooooow. Just wow.

Oh wait, this was all set-up for yet another “joke”. He calls up… Mario, and asks if he can “see this shit”. He responds “Mamma Mia” (apparently he couldn’t even get a voice clip) and IG calls it a … “turd burgler”. My head hurts, at least this is almost over.
Wait how can Mario see it? This type of scene only works when two guys are watching something on TV, something that’s happening live. IG is playing a game, a single-player game that can only be seen on his TV since the NES is hooked up to only his TV, and it’s impossible for the NES to go online for other people to see. You know, this joke only works when it involves live TV. How do you mess up such simple ideas?

The video ends with IG quickly moving through the rest of the game, bringing up other bosses and complaining some more about a boss that isn’t from the show he watched as a child (psst, action figures) and that only Destro and Cobra Commander deserve to be there.
“After 18 levels of lackluster levels” Horrid repetition, this really does feel like another old review.
He beats the game and is told to move on to the second quest, but he refuses. He then tells everyone if they see this game, they should destroy it (and he does just that by throwing it in the air and shooting it with his zapper), and signs off with “Knowing is half the battle” and the “G.I. Jooooe” jingle. Yeah, good luck keeping that last part on your DVD.

That review was awful.
All he really said about the game was that it was hard. The difficulty looks fair, it doesn’t look insanely cheap like other “bad hard” games. He could support his argument if he said anything about the controls, but he didn’t. So this might be another case of “The game doesn’t suck, IG just sucks at it”.
The sketches were lame, especially that terribly animated Flint, and the jokes were not funny or didn’t make a lick of sense. It really did feel like an old review, with massive lapses in research and the weird way he says “buddy”.
I will applaud him for not using that “splashing water” joke a third time.

Honestly, this game actually looks decent. It certainly looks better than the 2009 movie tie-in “The Rise of Cobra”, with its Dreamcast graphics, boring gameplay and inconsistent sound (Cobra members yelling “Go Joe!”). So Bores “destroyed” a good game because he has to do it every time or else. Fuck all of this.

By the way, nothing related to his storyline happened. That’s two videos in a row where the story was completely ignored. Did he give up on it? I hope so, it was a confusing mess.
So much for “Season 4 being (his) movie” now. Otherwise, fifteen and a half minutes would just be padding.

    1. BUT he's only in Atlantis factor. Which Bore's didn't really play. Destro is the second last boss while Cobra commander is the final boss. The problem is that they look nothing like their source material. Its so bad that you'd honestly think these guys made the first starwars nes game. Atlantis factor did a much better job sticking to the source material although you don't get to play general hawk with a jetpack.

Maybe you should take another long break and come back again when you remember that you have rights and responsibilities as a cyber citizen.

      Not only are there no quotes form any of us backing this up, but killing someone because you don't like his content makes no sense. At all.

      "I'D LIKE TO THANK THIS BLOG FOR EXPOSING THIS MAN FOR THE TRUE FRAUD THAT HE IS!"

      Anyone can expose him with 5 minutes of research on his video's topics.

      "HE'S JUST LIKE HITLER, IF HITLER MADE GAME REVIEWS FOR THE INTERNET!"

      Engulfing the whole world in war != Making game reviews.
      Besides, a game reviewing Hitler would "just" be a racist Austrian guy. Those tend to get their accounts closed down.

      Bottom line: Start making sense, Brandon.

    15. Maybe Chris Bores is a reaper from mass effect. Everyone who picks to defend Chris Bores has a tendency to go insane while blaming their insanity on everyone else. This is a textbook example of social isolation and it is never a good sign when people voluntarily do this. I sure hope Chris Bores doesn't try to capitalize on this little cult he's making, the world simply doesn't need another jonestown.

      Delete
    16. @ Mr.Kill

      Don’t quote me on this, as I’m not sure, but I think a cult works like this:

      1x influential, charismatic and highly intelligent leader.

      2-5x non-brainwashed ‘officers’ tasked with maintaining day-to-day operations and suppressing the main population.

      ~1000x brainwashed, mindless followers with nothing remotely resembling intelligent, rational thought in their collective brains.

      I don’t think the dumb can lead the dumb in a cult, is what I’m trying to say. Sure he’s a bad influence, but Bores lacks the drive and social status himself to ever pose a threat to the community at large. That being said, if he does try to start up the Chris Bores Church of Stupid, we’ll be there to stop him.

    2. And the pile of broken and false promises continues to grow.
      Does anyone remember those two IG Short sketch videos last year with Lakitu and Boo? Didn't he say that he had more of these sketch videos in mind? Well it's been over a year since the former video and almost one year since the latter and we haven't seen any sign of there being any more of these sketch videos.
      Also remember back in August when he gave away jewelry and necklaces from Tribal Hollywood in a contest? He said that he was going to hold another contest for a HD capture card device. We haven't seen that yet either.
      Chris Bores is full of lies and empty promises.

      Delete
    3. I think it's safe to say the sketches were just an excuse for him to rush out content. He couldn't be bothered to make a review, so he just made a sketch instead to keep the fans from complaining.

      Also, wasn't everyone asking him to do a 3DS review? It's odd, he makes revisions no one wants to see, yet when people actually request something, they get nothing. It's not like money is an issue, he could have just brought a second-hand one or put out more content if it was.

      Delete
    4. He can't use an emulator to hide that he can't actually play games for the 3ds in his final fantasy 3 review he somehow beat the final boss with the base job classes.

      Delete
    5. Bores must be pretty lucky that a large part of his fanbase forgets these promises just as he does.

      An IG video game will most likely never happen. The only developers willing to make such a thing are most likely small newcomers in the indie scene - and guess what they absolutely need to make games? Funding. And seeing how Bores' detests Kickstarter, all he can hope for is coming across a fan that is both a developer AND rich.

      And it appears that Bores is still working on the next story segment. He probably made the last two reviews without storyline so he can release them faster - which are good priorities IMO.

      Still, why are there no official announcements regarding the sudden lack of a plotline?

      Delete
    6. That would require work on bores part. We all know he is too lazy to do anything but drop extremely vague hints.

      Delete
  5. I wonder what Asalieri thinks of this new video. Will he be cringing in anger after seeing Bores damaging so many NES titles and criticize over the difficulty and how much Bores sucks at the game?

    I also tried G.I. Joe just now. It plays a lot similarly to the Mega Man games (I wonder what Chris Bores thinks of those). I tried to keep my use of emulator rewinding down to a minimum, and didn't start doing terribly until 2-2's boss (where I then stopped entirely). The game does seem like a fair challenge; probably Irate over here never bothered to play the game before recording it live or read guides to learn how everything in the game works beforehand and understand what he's supposed to do. If I ever did a review of a game (as someone in the X-Men episode's comment field challenged me to, not before calling me "Mr. Perfect"), I'd make sure to get used to the game's physics and boss attacks/strategies before making my final judgement.

  6. Someone may want to go back and verify this because I'm not 100% sure, but I thought I noticed that during the helicopter fight, he is getting wailed on but not taking any actual damage.

  7. I, for once, am glad to see him back doing the regular bullshit over making a boring video about Skylanders. And by that, I mean "This game looks decent. But since I suck at this, this game sucks."

    However, I really hate when he can't decide if he should swear or not. If he wants to swear, than swear. If you don't want to, than don't. Don't try to mix them up for no reason.

    And yes, I know that Irate Gamer logic is so dumb it makes Twilight looks smart in comparaison. But it still doesn't excuse this stupidity.

  10. Wow. This was tough to watch. It seemed like IG was forcing his character more than usual. Here is my short list of moments that made me cringe:

    1:04 - Unnecessary Marty Stu moment
    1:19 - Awkward removing of clothes to "Git down to bidness"
    1:50 - Forced aggressive use of the words "penis" and "bitch"
    2:15 - Knocks himself out with water? What?
    3:00 - Zapper up the butthole
    4:00 - Water in the face again. bites controller wire to shock himself. I don't get it.
    5:00-5:30 - every face made.
    5:30 - Awkward and forced rage. Knocking the game shelf over knocks him out? AGAIN? I ... maybe THIS was his version of the rule of three this time?
    6:54 - Levels of levels. He could have swapped one of the "levels" for "stages" and it would have worked.

  12. I will admit the narrator joke did make me chuckle, so credit where it's due. In an alternate universe where the IG show is a meta self-parody I'd say the narrator would be a character who acts likes to assume he's always correct despite continually getting facts and names wrong and as such acts like a smartass towards Chris because he's the only person dumber than he is.

      From tv tropes so bad its horrible let's play page

      "iJustine's Let's Play of Portal 2. She gets stuck on the easiest puzzle of the game for eight minutes! The worst part is that this is after the puzzle that demonstrates the way portals work to you. Watch an at least tolerable version of the video here.

      The staggering idiocy is brought into full view in this video. On the right: iJustine. On the left: the video author's 12 year old sister who has no knowledge of the Portal series and little gaming experience in general (certainly less than iJustine claims to have). Watch and be amazed.
      Not to mention that she manages to ignore most of the plot while playing it. There may as well have been none. She even ignored the famous "Lemons rant," one of the funniest parts in the entire game! To paraphrase a quote of hers: "Who's Caroline? I thought I was Caroline."
      At no point does she refer to any of the characters by name, calling Wheatley "Mr. Eyeball" and GLaDOS "the potato". This is extra insulting since she has the subtitles on-screen telling you the character names!
      It only gets worse. Whenever she does refer to something by its proper name, she "corrects" herself and says the made-up name. She basically has a party in the middle of one video and they all end up talking over the aforementioned lemon rant, and given her lack of reaction to the rest of the dialogue, it probably made no difference.
      Eventually, iJustine got sick of everyone telling it like it is (e.g. "This Sucks"), and set the whole Let's Play to private. However, it's still available (all parts) on Viddler. Here's the first part, watch at your own risk. "

      It also doesn't help that most of Ijustine's content is youtube whore quality (but this is according to archfiend, who I no longer trust).

  14. Fairly nice recap, just one criticism. I think you would've been better off playing the game for at least half an hour on an emulator to see if some of his criticisms were really legit. I am disappointed by the amount of assumptions made when that could've easily been avoided by putting some time into the game.

  16. So, I know this is basically over and done with, but I was hoping someone could explain to me what the deal was with that whole "e-begging" thing. Mostly to do with that Cheetahmen fiasco.

    I mean, it wasn't a scam. People paid money and got what they paid for. I'm pretty sure someone on here even ordered one. So why were so many people (Norman Bores included) so stuck up on it? Just another attempt to try and ruin James' image?

I think it's a safe assumption that Bores heard there was some kind of online flap that somehow involved AVGN, so he jumped in on the anti-James side without becoming anything more than superficially informed about the issue. I base this on the lack of specifics, or meaningful satirical content, in the e-begging video.

  17. Huh. So that's two retro reviews with no mention of his storyline. My comparison of his "movie" to Monster A Go-Go was surprisingly apt. Also, I'm not really a fan of this GI Joe game, but I will admit that I wasn't very good at it. I'm kind of used to the quicker action and being able to fire in 8 directions of the Contra series. Then again, Boring Man disliked the Contra series for similar reasons. He dislikes most games for similar reasons. This review came out when GI Joe Retaliation has been out for almost a couple weeks. Heck, I was able to get a recap of an episode GI Joe Sigma 6 (a GI Joe TV show with anime influence) not long before it opened (even taking into account Paramount changing the release date again)! So yeah, we're entering the second quarter of this year, and we've barely had anything to talk about. Least this has been a good conversation starter. See you around, Dan.

    1. That's not how someone leaves a story open ended. "Open ended" means that you've given a story a satisfying, self-contained conclusion so that you don't piss off your fans, while leaving enough sequel hooks that you can pick up the story at a later date, provided it was well received enough to merit a continuation. The original Star Wars was open ended. The first Harry Potter book was open ended. Back to the Future part 1 was open ended. 999 was open ended. Leaving your story at a huge cliffhanger is NOT open ended. It's basically a promise to your fans that you'll continue the story in your next installment. Though I suppose breaking promises something we should expect of Bores at this point.

      Delete
    2. Yeah I agree, no wonder he deleted his own comment.

    3. Once again chernobyl shows his stunning lack of anything resembling sanity. So let me get this straight. You were complaining about IG's story as horrid, but when he doesn't continue it, you also complain about it? Truly strange. :D

    4. That is the only quote I will take from him by the way after this point I will not acknowledge that he is even posting anything.

      Delete
    5. As much as we dislike his inept story, after all these years, after all the build up, he could at least finish it instead of just arbitrarily stopping it.

      From the perspective of his fans, it is a huge let down after all the hype he has thrown around it.

      To be fair, maybe it's better this way. Chris has shown complete incompetence when it comes to storytelling, so maybe it's less disappointing for his fans if he doesn't actually create a climax. Then again, they still watch him after all the lazy videos and empty promises he has made, so I guess it must be pretty difficult to let them down.

      Delete
    6. @Micharion:

      Apparently, CC doesn't care HOW a storyline is continued / not continued.

      And did Bores just gave two totally different replies ("It will come out soon!", "I may or may not continue it") before removing the comment entirely Oo ?

      Or maybe he finally realized that turning the IG character into an unstoppable God Mode Sue was a crappy idea.

      Delete
    7. Yes, that's not open-ended at all. This is just plain old cut short. He wrote himself into a corner and just gave up. Like I said, my comparison to Monster A Go-Go for his "movie" was really spot-on.

      Delete
  21. I recall that when the first GI Joe movie came out, the good Mr. Rolfe said he looked through a few GI Joe games, but they were actually pretty decent or just didn't provide very much joke material.

    And now Bores' video comes out and pretty much backs that up. The game looked fine, quite frankly, just like any other platforming/shooter/whatever. Hell, I was noticing that when he was talking about how hard it was right off the bat that, like with the plane, HE WAS JUMPING INTO ENEMIES. Or, at the very least, he wasn't shooting at them. He brought up later in the video that he was ran out of ammo against the one boss, so I guess you could argue "I'm not given enough ammo," but I've never played the game so I can't tell, myself.

    Frankly it just looked like it was an excuse for him to try to show off his GI Joe toys without making another "I Rate the 80s" video. Hell, he probably doesn't want to do that since GI Joe toys are older than he is and doesn't have any of the original 12-inch figures and thus can't list them all off.

    But yeah, in some ways I'm glad he's back to doing videos like this - they're just hilariously bad reviews. And seriously, what was up with the "throwing water on himself" gag? Was he trying to cool himself off? Didn't look like he needed it...

    Also: he didn't do the full quote. He never said "And now you know" as the lead-in.

    1. You start with 150 bullets, your gun shoots two bullets but only consumes one (upgrading it can make it shoot 8 or more while still only consuming one bullet). Either Bores was playing as Snake eyes (whose gun naturally sucks), Bores should not have run out of ammo. The game expects you to punch cobra troopers anyway since most can survive 6 or so direct hits from a gun which translates to 3 or more shots used per trooper. One punch or sword slash kills a trooper in one hit.

      There is only one flaw with the first GI JOE nes game, and its repetitive mission design. Place bombs at checkmarks, fight some really vague Cobra character or if you're lucky, a renown cobra vehicle. Escape from base in linear scrolling sequence on a rather strict timer.

      If you're interested in playing the game, I posted the link to an online emulated version of the game several posts up.

      Well, Since Asa is obviously Amoral and two faced, is pretty obvious that he is betraying what he said in the past, all because he made him happy by helping him out on his sick obsession to destroy James rolfe and everyone else he's looking to hate, just to hide the fact that deep inside, he is indeed STILL Bitter about him not being able to get what those people he targets had.

      A Real Good Reputation and an Earned Respect.

      Of Course he and Bores will never flat-out allow themselves to show their real faces on the YT videos or flat-out let people know about it, since in Asa's Case, He has to pretend to be "Mature and Collected" (or moreso what he assumes is being Mature and Collected, which is being incredible smug, arrogant, ignorant, egotistical, narcissitic, cherry-picker, ad-hominem spewer, demafator, and reliying on acting like a clown to make people laugh their asses and them make them think that they are laughing because he's right, when he is obviously not) and in Bore's Case, acting like he is just being Naive and having harmless fun.

      What sickens me the most is that even friends of mine are white-knighting those bastards in whatever way and act conveniently blind and don't even bother to call them out when they do questionable stuff or are flat-out wrongdoers.

    7. @Kiki
      It is entirely possible that your friends just want to keep watching his material. There's a common fallacy abound that you can hate someone and love their material. This is obviously false. There are plenty of authors that get hated but have well loved franchises (like George Lucas). Still... how bad are they white knighting?

      As for Asa... dudes got like 5,000 subscribers in like what? Years of operation? At this point I believe people watch him for his stupidity. Take a look at gamegrumps, they started last year and hit 800,000. Frankomatic has hit 8,000 and he doesn't do anything inflammatory or insult people. The fact of the matter is, Asaleri may very well be waving his arms up and down while the world moves on. It doesn't change the fact that he is having his fun at other people's expense but at least we can have faith knowing that despite his petty stupidity, he will never gain the true respect of the internet community.

      that might be the deal for most of them, but i cant tell you by fact that one of them is REALLY, REALLLY just doing so to following the herd and loves to spread the fire, even if it's all lies, he now believes that James Rolfe is like the money grubber asshole but totally refuses to see what "lovely" things Asa has done, there is a limit about how much you can forgive a persons unlikable qualities if you enjoy his content, but is not always the case, it depends of the situation, and the scale of those things.

He actually blames Greg Pabich and didn't seem to mention the AVGN though he does make an indirect jab at AVGN in the credits (do note that I'm talking about the review and not the AVGN conspiracy bullshit). The game runs and plays to the end. Mr.Weenie doesn't lie so much as complain that bad game is bad.

      The review is here, its not particularly good though:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhWSKNC1CP0

      Broken but now complete means that you can actually get to the last level Weenie. Use your brain! In part 1 he says "its the same game" No its not and he shoots himself in foot during part 2 where he notes there's been changes.

      Dumbest part of part 2 review

      "How did this game get an NES release again, oh right it was because of Greg pabich and the other people who endorsed this project"

      "No where has IG stated he is not completing any of his Story Arch video reviews or his History of Video Games series"

      Well he doesn't exactly need to state that. His schedule and update frequency tell that to everyone.

      Adding to this is LB's day to day trolling (and since LB is obviously him or apart of his production process, this means work efficiency is at a fully expected low)

      "Seems the IG sucks blog is spreading more rumors"

      What does LB mean by 'seems'? Obviously we are and it's clear that the information is factual. Best part about this opening line is that LB treats spreading rumors as a bad thing but considering what she's been saying about me and everyone on else on the blog (as well as what she says at the end of her comment) its clear that she's the one spreading rumors and lies.

      "He has been working on scripts for the past weeks."

    2. It is actually now impossible to ascertain so of course that is the one buggin goes for to try and make her point.

      Delete
    3. Well at least she's as good at backing up her own words as Chris Bores is. I would love to conjecture that they're one and the same but then it would not be a conjecture... since there is too much empirical evidence and so the conjecture would be a statement of fact.

      Delete
    4. Of course considering how early it is on the comments compared to most things I do believe that it came before the facebook one so exactly what does that change buggin?

      Delete
    5. yeah it doesn't exactly change the fact that we've caught Chris Bores two-facing again as well as 1984ing things up. The timestamps on the different comments are just about right too.

    6. What I don't get is why does a certain nuclear reactor defends bores but can be found stating that he see's no point of angry reviewing?

      Delete
    7. I believe it is known as being two-faced, egotistical and contrarian. Some people can have normal social interaction so instead they choose to argue with a people. Note that this certain reactor, has a tendency to constantly shift topics in a conversation and thinks keeping a list of 'people I've owned' is socially acceptable (note that my name is on the list despite me never arguing with him, ever). Obvious inferiority complex, or someone who just wants to be a professional troll? You decide!

    8. He even said he liked some of the AVGN's earlier stuff but not the newer.

    10. "He even said he liked some of the AVGN's earlier stuff but not the newer."

      Perhaps this is your first time encountering the tactic known as trollshielding? If he's such a fan of the earlier AVGN material then why isn't he still a fan? AVGN quality has improved substantially from his first 5 reviews. There hasn't been anything in the last 5 reviews that have been particularly off putting. The releases have been slow, but so what? There's a good reasonable excuse for it. This reactor's trollshielding fails because he claims to be something he doesn't demonstrate to be anywhere close to be, a disgruntled AVGN fan. The biggest hole is that Irate Gamer steals directly from classic AVGN reviews... so how come that gets a free pass?

      Delete
    11. Thankfully he can't actually insult me on my choice of entertainment since i already said I don't really watch AVGN and if he tried it with LPs he would be complaing about shows he doesn't watch.

      Delete
    12. You're arguing with him? Just remember some people aren't intelligent enough to be reasoned with.

      Delete
    13. I have a feeling when I finally am able to do what I am planning on youtube he will try and start something.

      Delete
    14. If he does we'll have definite proof that Chris Bore's followers sabotage youtube channels.

      Delete
    15. OF course we still have Irategamerfan345. And that's clear proof that Chris used puppet accounts to sabotage people (namely AVGN, but others got hit badly too)

    16. Obviously I won't mention IG in my videos but I will show any who happen to notice what a real gamer plays like.

    17. Okay going to slightly rephrase that last sentence since I'm not claiming anyone here is not a real gamer it was a crack at bores.

      Delete
    18. I don't know what you're planning, Micharion, but whatever it is I'm looking forward to it. I'm pretty much behind anything that would make the Bores look bad. Well... worse than he already is. You know what I mean. Keep us posted. ;)

  34. Why do you guys keep saying LadyBuggin777 is Bores? Didn't Eric Allen said that she's really Chris Bores' mom?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 3 reasons:

      1. There's still a chance Eric Allen lied.
      2. There's waaaaay too much evidence that shows that Ladybuggin is Chris Bores. Like not being in a video, having the same typos, confusing mentions of Bores with herself. And much much more!
      3. Its practically an in joke now. At the end of the day, its doesn't matter if Chris Bores is ladybuggin or if ladybuggin is his mom or if its just some number 1 fan; its absolutely pathetic and Chris Bores is an idiot for digging himself in such a mess.

      Delete
    2. I'd say she indeed IS his mom. Why? Because she's still there.

      Think about it: She's a rabid fanboy bullying anyone saying anything negative, even if it is a disenchanted fan.

      What separates her from normal rabid fanboys is that she is a moderator (so she can block whoever she wants) and the official IG spokesperson (Chris himself rarely responds or answers to comments). She even flat-out encourages the similarly rabid part of his fanbase to bully as well.

      LadyBuggin is Chris' major obstacle in ever getting a clean slate, yet he prefers to ignore her existence instead of forcing her to adapt to his current charm offensive.

      If LadyBuggin was just another account of his, he could just stop using it. But if she is indeed his mom, this explains why he has apparently no control over her behavior and pretends it's none of his business.

      Delete
    3. You have to keep in mind, though, Bores isn't that smart. He's no master of hindsight, and he's well known for making terrible decisions and doing things that dig him down deeper and deeper on a regular basis.

      In his confused mind, he probably thinks we don't suspect him at all, and his Buggin sockpuppet is his best idea ever.

  35. Hey guys, i want to ask you a question.

    How many of you actually own NES games, and what do you think about the "Speculator Inflation Pricing Fad Bullcrap of Uncommon to Rare Games", and the fact that nowadays everything is overpriced on Ebay?.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I do own NES games. It totally sucks that people demand $50 for a game you could totally get emulated (and with none of the social stigma of piracy since buying it secondhand doesn't help the industry at all). Most hilarious overpricing has to be radiant silvergun. Other favorites include times of conflict (charging any amount of money for that shovelware is highway robbery).

      Delete
    2. I've got an NES and a Famicom. Yeah, I'm a bit obsessed. And the whole "overpriced games" thing really pisses me off. Not EVERYTHING on eBay is overpriced, though. I always manage to find pretty decent deals, anyway.

      Delete
    3. @skyrunner14

      I can't say I agree with that. Most items I see there are way overpriced. There are times I see crap NES games on there going for upwards of $10+ that I can buy at my local game store for $5 or less. It is true that you'll find some deals,but the majority of it ends up being overpriced,either just the price itself or with shipping,in my opinion.

    4. @skyrunner14

      I don't own a Famicom. On average, how much more (or less) are the cost of games compared to the NES?

  38. LadyBuggin777 surrenders:

    "The problem is even when you give the IG suicks blog proof or evidence they still spin it to look untrue. I give up, let them believe all the looney tunes they want to believe. It makes them look even worse then they already are. Let them go down with the ship (Danny-boy) They all deserve each other's diarrhea of words and constipation of idea's ~ "

    1. So, our "diarrhea of words and constipation of ideas" make us "look worse than we already do"? Funny, the same thing could be said of you and the crap you spew on a regular basis. I also find it funny how you only ever comment when we find info that is correct, since you try desperately to deter us otherwise.

      Oh, and by the way, how are Kenny-boy and Billie-boy?

    2. " you give the IG suicks blog proof or evidence they still spin it to look untrue"

      All we asked was for a non-anecdotal piece of evidence. Geez LB's idea of evidence is just an unsupported series of words. No wonder Chris Bores is laughed at by every intellectual!

      Delete
    3. @Mr.Kill Ultra:

      Bonus points if that quote can just as easily be applied to LadyBuggin herself. She loves making weird excuses:

      - Chris mistakes the Red Baron for a Nazi (aka very obvious poor research) ? It's okay because it's more fun that way!

      - LadyBuggin accidentally responds as the IrateGamer? It's just the "crew clowning around" (a crew whose identity is unknown, does not appear in any credits or impressum of Irate Entertainment and whose existence has yet to be confirmed and/or acknowledged by anyone)

      And "Diarrhea of words"? Isn't that toilet humor?

      Delete
    4. "diarrhea of words and constipation of idea's"

      'Diarrhea of words' is a condition where one talks before editing and Constipation of ideas is writer's block. All of the things Ladybuggin writes is not at all well thought out or well edited. She practically relies on the delete comment button (+ block person) which shows a lack of deliberation and thus she clearly demonstrates a diarrhea of words. She clearly has a constipation of ideas since she can neither write a legit criticism of the blog nor come up with proper researched insults.

      Also you can't inherit or take someone else's diarrhea of words and likewise for constipation of ideas. Always thinking about digestion and food or having sex. Clearly Chris Bores has inherited it from his mother (though I really think its Chris Bores writing this since those two terms are really out of nowhere, similar to post-cancellation family guy humor).

  41. I have to ask,since I can't actually confirm this,but isn't LadyBuggin's name Linda? I remember reading that somewhere(ED perheaps),but can't be sure.

    Anyway,I was looking through some of Joe's comments and found one very interesting where he says Mr.KillUltra is tearing me apart Lisa:D and then LadyBuggin replies directly afterwords. If she's Linda,then why is Joe calling her Lisa?
