Waiting for a Bus

So... anything yet? Doesn't look like it. Can't he just admit that he has a non-YouTube job or something? Then we wouldn't be so hard on his poor schedule. But no, this is what he claims is his job. In the real world, someone that skimps on their work or puts little effort into their job usually gets fired.

There's gotta be something. *checks GotGame* Oh... he did another E3 floor plan map thing. NOBODY CARES!
We get it, you're going to E3 again because GotGame desperately needs traffic. You're lucky that GotGame is run by morons that haven't fired you years ago for crap like Video Game Roundup or the 3-in-1.

By the way, THIS is how you do a Kickstarter parody: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ms8A7aTYrTc

  1. Just remember... "2013 is my year!"

    Seriously, this is still Bores' laziest year yet.

    And I can't wait for more disasters at E3!

    I bet there's not going to be much of a list this year, given his pace.

  2. Oh, and not to mention, he's lucky GotGame didn't fire him for the Ubisoft rant/death threat almost two years ago at E3...

    1. You are still crying over that?...geez it was 2 years ago. Get over it already. Plus I doubt Ubisoft cares anyway since IG is nowhere near as relevant as a reviewer. Honestly if Ubisoft did care about what IG did in that video it would have been taken care of almost instantly after.

    2. Because GotGame is run by idiots, duh.

      A lot of things were two years ago invisible crane. It doesn't change the fact that someone immature decided to 'blow up' a video game company because they denied him a privilege that he didn't earn. Now if Andrew was obsessed and wouldn't stop thinking about the issue (i.e every post he made was about that) then there would be merit in discouraging him on talking about the ubisoft incident. And of course, just because it was two years ago doesn't change the point that Irate Gamer is still just as immature and unprofessional then as he is now (giving props to known internet trolls is not professional at all). Andrew's point still stands, Irate Gamer is lucky he has an employer that is as desperate and stupid as he is. I honestly never thought I'd see an employer so blind and oblivious to laziness and negligence as Gottgame is and am shocked that such an employer exists in today's no nonsense economy.

      That said, you are completely right in some aspects as Ubisoft obviously doesn't give a shit about a reviewer who doesn't even play more than a tenth of their releases and isn't even taken seriously anyway.

  3. The "James and Mike Play" series prove that you can have a secondary series that doesn't dominate the first series, unlike Bores.

  4. I decided to check out IG's E3 2013 floor map. While there wasn't anything really interesting about it, there were a few small things that I find weird, ironic or funny.

    "Keep in mind that this is not a final map and is subject to change."

    If it's not set in stone and is instead merely a mock-up, what's the point? Why not wait until the real floor map is revealed? Oh wait, he would be late uploading that when it comes out because of his sheer laziness.

    "The Big 3 (Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft)..."

    I know this is extremely small and nitpicky, but of course IG puts Sony in front of the other two companies since he is an obvious Sony fanboy (no offense to other fans of Sony).

    "With games like Skylanders Swap-force and a new Final Fantasy being teased for this years E3..."

    Yes everybody, expect more never-ending praise for Skylanders at this year's E3 event, along with (most likely) more boring character unboxing videos and, eventually, the full game review.

    "E3 will definitely be a critical year for games so stay tuned to Gotgame.com throughout the event for exclusive coverage next month!"

    Or you can stay tuned to other, more professional companies, like IGNentertainment or Machinima, in order to get E3 news and coverage when it's actually fresh instead of waiting anywhere from 1 week to 1 month for "exclusive" E3 coverage from Gotgame.

    Besides that, I've got nothing else to say.

      While I agree that IGN has not always made smart choices and wise remarks (especially in some of their video game reviews and other videos) and are disliked by many people on the internet, they are still considered a professional video game company nonetheless.

  5. LadyBuggin777 posted drivel:

    "BatDanNight is trying to peddle some guy's spoof off as the greatest spoof ever made. He is using it as a model to others (meaning IG) in how to create a real spoof video. Oh please, the so called spoof is the dullest, none humorerous, makes no sense spoof, I've yet to see. It's offical, Batty has no concept of humor when all it takes to make him laugh is for PeeWee Herman and Ethel Merman to get paid for having a baby! That's enough for anyone to have nightmares over ~"

    2. Okay, there is NO WAY Buggin is a grown woman in her 40s/50s/60s. I just cannot be convinced that someone at that stage of life their would talk like a highschooler, behave live a brat, and have the time to read Dan's blog. Let alone understand it!

    3. Well we need to remember that Buggin doesn't actually understand the blog at all. She's unable to come up with an coherent counterpoint that doesn't take the issue batdan brought up out of context.

  6. But wait, there's more.

    Andrew Schroy Writes:

    "You do a better job of doing a Kickstarter spoof than Irate Gamer did nine months ago!"

    and she replies with:

    "Opinions are not fact. Seeing that you're an avgn fanturd it's understandable that you can't comprehend that reality ~ lmao ~ Battyhas very poor taste in comedy and the mind power to make you believe the way he does. Poor blind sheeple, you are forever humorless ~"

    2. @DynamiteNinja - When she replied to my comment about brentalfloss doing a better job at a Kickstarter spoof (the one you posted), I just had to laugh way too hard at her idiotic comment. Sure, her son may have more views than Brent, but just remember-- quality is better than quantity.

      And boy, does Linda need help. BADLY!

    3. Funny how she tries to back up it not being an opinion with views both of which are semi an opinion and views generally don't mean anything it just shows how many even went to that page.

  7. And normally, I don't post LadyBuggin's comments here, but here's what else she said:

    "Yes, IG sucks bloggers, the fact is IG's spoof has 100,800 views compared to this 27, 072. That fact proves where the true comedy stands. It's not an opinion. It's fact! No matter how much it you want to deny it, Batty has poor taste in humor ~ lmao ~"

    2. Well considering the only world she seems to live in is in her head not surprising.

      Delete
    3. This comment pretty much sums everything up:

      "IG spoof: 361 views per day, Brentalfloos spoof: 6896 views per day. Deal with it."

      Bores' videos take a long time to break the 100,000 mark. Not to mention, his spoof has a lot of dislikes. This is just an insipid argument.

      While we're on the topic, TheArchfiend made a good E-begging spoof if anyone wants to check it out.

  8. LadyBuggin's smugness really shines through here:

    "Hey, Andrew Schroy, quality = quanity >100,800 views .... Owned :D"

    2. By her logic, Fish Tank and The Shawshank Redemption were obviously terrible films, hence why they didn't make any money.

  12. If I was Chris (see my name), I wouldn't make my day job public or at least relatable to the Irate thing.

    Reason 1 - Purposefully separating the two is professional. The Irate Gamer thing seems (to me) to be more of a hobby or passion. It's best not to mix work and play.

    Reason 2 - Trolls. Duh.

  13. Since Chris is still a no show with anything a small update on my channel. I have decided that since I don't have the capability to fully complete boktai yet I will upload up until the credits, which I have already recorded, and call it finished until I can truly complete it.

  14. Well, as per usual, Boring Man claimed this was "His year", yet has posted consistently less content than last year. I personally didn't have any real opinion on Kickstarter last year. Now, since I've seen it be used to garner funding for community college arcades and movie theaters transitioning from film to digital projectors, I've been more accepting of it. That's to say nothing of the $2 million that was raised for a Veronica Mars movie (I liked that show, I was dismayed that it was canceled). Not that this matters to Bores or LadyBuggin. As for Batdanmn: he's been making so many anti-AVGN and anti-Channel Awesome videos that I don't consider him a threat at all. I did reach out to him a while ago, suggesting that he could do his own video review show with the energy he's spending on all these fake Nostalgia Critic videos; but he was convinced that this was the best use of his time. At that point, I decided to just let him be. I am not going to stop liking internet celebrities who are actually funny or stop liking anime just because he does the things he does. I understand that there are going to be people like him, but he has failed to convince me that my liking of anime to the point of basing my blog on it is a problem. By addressing me as a "weaboo", he only succeeded in defining his own bigotry. Now, I think I'll go work on a new entry for my blog. See you, Dan.

    1. Well there's many arguements for and against but this is my take:

      1. Ldaybuggin is gonna keep doing this whether she gets attention or not. Its been like years now?
      2. Ldaybuggin phrases here comments in such a way that its literally just there to sucker new comers and the inexperienced into thinking what she says is true.
      3. By posting her comments and the counterpoint we can show her that she's not fooling anyone.
      4. But either way she's just gonna do it anyway. But then again do we have anything else to talk about?
      5. IF we do then I guess there's no reason to bring up ldaybuggin, I've noticed that we only bring her up when there's nothing else important happening.

  18. So has anyone seen the new thing about Nintendo placing ads on every video that shows off any of their products? I've only heard a little bit about it,but want to hear what people think of this.


    http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/16/nintendo-enforces-copyright-on-youtube-lets-plays

    Here's the link to what I was watching about it earlier. Apparently from what I've read about it,it doesn't just apply to LP'ers,but any videos that have any Nintendo products at all. Also read where the people who have videos up will not get any money from the ads as well.

    My question is then,how many YouTube partners does this affect and will they keep their videos that they have of Nintendo products up? We all know that AVGN,Irate Gamer,and many others who monetized their videos have quite a few videos about Nintendo products. So what will they do with their videos,since they'll no longer be receiving compensation from them anymore?

    3. Sounds like it is all nintendo owned content which could extend that far back or not of course I think the ad revenue only affects youtube partners which uses ad revenue while being part of a network goes with views. This is just what I think I'm not too sure though.

    4. I saw PeanutButterGamer made a facebook post about this earlier. I think his "top 10 Mario games" video got blocked.

    5. To be honest,I'm not entirely sure if it is just newer stuff or everything. The only reason I found out about was through messyvideogamenerd's facebook,which he linked this article to show they showed some footage from one of his videos in the video. I know he does a lot of retro stuff on his channel,so they may do this with retro games as well.

      I'm in the same boat as Micharion,as I really don't know what to think of this either.

    6. I've got the exact response gamers should be having.

      " SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT... THE GAMEPLAY, COMMENTARY AND UNIQUE CHARM I ADD TO THE VIDEO DOES NOT ENTITLE ME TO THE MONEY I WORK FOR AND EARN?"

      let's take a look at "deciding if my video is fair use"

      FACTOR 3: THE AMOUNT AND SUBSTANTIALITY OF THE PORTION DEFENDANT USED

      "In general, the less of the copyrighted work that is used, the more likely the use will be considered fair. If, however, the defendant copied nearly all of, or the heart of, the copyrighted work, his or her use is less likely to be considered fair."

      Except there is no established way to play a game and the game itself such as it models and textures do not have a set method of use. You could argue that playing the game itself is the heart of a copyrighted work but when a game gets copyrighted its to protect the ideas and work put into the game. Having footage of someone playing the game in their own unique style (even if its utter failure) does not duplicate or alter the game's assets in ways that are not originally allowed by the game's code. Hell I may not be a lawyer but this next line proves the point I'm trying to make here:

      "The key here is that in order to be fair use, you must use no more of the original copyrighted work than necessary for your purpose"

      To do a let's play... you gotta have footage of the fucking game (and of course sound and shit). Therefore by definition a let's play is fair-use and Nintendo can't do shit about it. But youtube doesn't give a shit about its people and will happily accept ideals such as cronyism and only protect youtube partners (usually the ones that haven't done anything to earn that status, like 10k subscribers) while letting the good people with craptons of subscribers leave out the fucking door.

      I wonder how long its gonna be until people who make original content will start to face copyright infringement? After all they are using the youtube (TM) medium to post their materials so by youtube's standards it would be okay to take the money that collegehumor and howitshouldhaveended make.

      Delete
    7. The only silver lining I can see coming out of this is that nintendo would learn that this is a powerful tool they can use to their advantage. It seems they know of it but the use is what eludes them at this point.

      Delete
    8. You know there is one thing that's been bugging me it sounds like people are reacting that nintendo will block videos of their content which it does not seem is what is happening so fair use does not apply they are simply getting money from the ads that play there is a difference between the two.

      Delete
    9. @Micharion
      The problem is that people have been reporting that their videos have been nintendo blocked and even then a lot of people need their ad revenue to keep their work going. Even if they don't, its still a rather dick move for nintendo to take the profits of work they spent no money or effort making.

      Delete
    10. Well for the reporting part a lot of people on youtube just like to get any kind of rise out of people so it's best to take that with a grain of salt. Alos yes the taking ad revenue is quite mean spirited but the solution to that that most people have for it is to protest which in this case would cause more harm than good.

Wing commander saga is a damn good fan game. Have you played the original x-com? If you send your email to me I can send you a zip containing the free version of the game (due to law I am free to distribute this version since it was abandon-ware when I got it!). Battlefield 1942 is also free to download but you'll need origin (play a game online or offline, it'll be a funny LP anyway). Battle for wesnoth is also cool. Oh yeah and there's tiberian sun, ground control and DOOM roguelike.

  26. Well Linkara has made a video asking people nicely to not use ad blockers on his and others videos.

    2. Oh yeah........

      on side talk with the topic?, what do you think of Linkara's way of handling the issue, i really dint see any problems, but people keep saying that he was very condescending, (even without watching the video response of Mr.A)

      Delete
    3. How petty can Mr.A get?
      "Oh no someone is trying to make a living doing something they like! Someone is trying to use the commercial medium of the internet for commercial purposes? Can't have that at all. The internet should be about e-drama and throwing around pointless opinions supported by half-baked logic."
      Why do people think that being an internet celebrity is an illegitimate job? Illegitimate jobs (outside of the illegal ones) are ones that no one has a need for at any given time. If angry reviewers and comic book reviewers were such pointless non-work jobs then why are they popular and in demand? I find this really funny, so many people are taking the internet so seriously getting pissed off and throwing tantrums yet no one wants to admit that the internet really does have solid basis on their lives and by extension that the internet is a medium whose full potential might never be reached.... well at least with people who are still stupid enough to think internet jobs aren't as real as physical jobs.

      Delete
    4. Now in all fairness (and this is coming from a guy who doesn't like Mr. A at all) I think he does score some good points. No one owes Linkara anything and if people want to use ad blockers let them, and truthfully I don't think a video about it was needed. I don't believe that the majority of the fans use ad blockers on their videos. Now with that said I do agree with your point that what Linkara as well as the others do shows a lot of effort in these videos and it shows even if you don't like it there's no denying this. For someone to say this isn't a real job is flat out wrong. If I like what someone does and they get ad revenue I don't care I'll support them and watch their videos and set up ad blocker to those I don't.

      That is perhaps the most legit point that Asa has, the point being that there is no written or binding agreement which requires those who watch Linkara's material to have to view or in anyway support Linkara's show. However this does not mean its scandalous for linkara to ask people to be reasonable and continue viewing material on terms he would find more favorable. A service provider has its own rights and can set the terms of which it delivers its service (I will not be discussing what are ethical terms of service and what are not). Take for example you own a restaurant that serves free tea (i.e Vietnamese restaurant) or gives out accessible ketchup (i.e a burger king). Now imagine that there are customers who stop by drinking tea but not ordering anything and likewise for the burger joint, taking ketchup but applying it to sandwiches they made at home. Tea and ketchup packets are cheap almost negligible things but if a lot of people start doing that, the expenses will add up. "But Mr.Killultra, that made no sense and someone's gonna quote mine you" well it makes perfect sense. A webvideo costs bandwidth and requires servers to run them. Servers are expensive and breakdown if not maintained. By watching a video in a manner that deprives the web provider of possible revenue you are not paying for the things you just did. 1 or 2 Gigabytes of not paid for video-streaming isn't that expensive and in reality it would probably cost 0.01$ to stream 12 full length Linkara videos but if enough people start using ad blockers.... well advertisers pay about 0.10$ every 1000 visits, it must have gotten really bad if the web-ad corp was pissed about it.

      Linkara was only trying to curb a trend that looks like it will force unwanted changes to his terms of service. I don't see how anyone can interpret this as a sign of douchbagery.

    8. What irked me the most in Asa's video is 10:57-11:02. in those 5 seconds he basically DEMONIZED Lewis. I would like to have Lewis's thoughts on Asa's response video. oh and at one point in the video he says Lewis's content blows, but he doesn't watch it. THEN HOW THE FUCK DO YOU KNOW IF IT BLOWS??

    9. Perhaps his last name is actually Cartman?

      Delete
    10. @Blade
      No because Cartman is usually right for comedic effect. It would also mean Mr.A is funny and watchable... let's just say I whole heartedly disagree about all of Mr.A's content especially since his credibility is practically in the negative.

      Delete
    11. But so many people are confused because they laugh at how he acts, and he thinks it's because they deeply agree with him.................which of course is not, but he even quote mines that

    12. Yeah. I dont get Asa either. Here is a link to his first review of Linkara's Street fighter review:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDP-5NY-wUg
      This is why I cant stand him. Yeah, He says that he doesnt review it, just complain about the art. Because that isnt important to the comic or anything...Seriously I hate these people that say his reviews dont review the comic...

      Delete
    13. Didn't Asa say he wanted to stay the hell away from Channel Awesome in one of his RAR episodes? :|

      Delete
    14. I personally think Lewis was very polite in his request. He explained very carefully that AT4W is like a home business to him. Usually, the only cases where I don't see the ads are if my connection is bad or if there's a glitch that day. Mr. A made an ass of himself again, from what I'm hearing from you guys. Regarding this whole thing with Nintendo no longer funding YouTube partners who make videos about their games and other products: I have a large amount of Pokémon-related videos on my channel, but I'm not too concerned. A long time ago, even though I agreed to monetize my account when Google first asked me, I just got really into the fun of making videos and decided to keep doing it for recreation. I'm job-hunting right now; but I intend to keep making videos just because I enjoy it. Also, I would do Let's Plays if I had the equipment; but in my ROMs of Pokémon Gold and Silver, I named my rival Asa. No points for guessing why.

    16. I don't find Linkara's Street Fighter comic review to be terrible at all. He made a lot of legit points and I do enjoy the review overall and I agree Ryu was a dick in the comic and the artwork is terrible.

      Delete
    17. Also linkara had this to ad about the ad thing

      "-Blip now REQUIRES all videos to have preroll ads on them. You're given five exceptions for videos and that's it. Where exactly am I supposed to host 400+ videos that average around 400 megs per episode if not on Blip?
      -Assuming this model idea of yours works, what exactly happens in case of an emergency that goes beyond the funding of the ad-free-for-a-year, be it a medical issue or I drop the camera and it goes breaky. The current system allows me to set aside money with each paycheck to build up savings - it's a continuous revenue stream."

  28. Why are people even taking this Assholieri seriously? He hates everything and demonizes everyone who puts effort in their videos. He keeps starting wars and e-dramas. He sent his army of fanboys to dislike Linkara's video, who was humbly asking to remove ad-blockers. Why would you bash somebody who gives you free entertainment?

    It scares me that you can get so much publicity by being a total douchebag.

    2. " He keeps starting wars and e-dramas. He sent his army of fanboys to dislike Linkara's video, who was humbly asking to remove ad-blockers"

      That's precisely the reason why people have to take him seriously. He's not like other douchebags who fade into obscurity, he hurts people without doing a single thing that would actually solve the problem.

      Please somebody DO TELL how disliking Linkara's video is gonna solve the ad revenue problem. I would LOVE TO KNOW how bashing and demonizing Linkara is gonna help the internet and reduce judgmental bigotry in anyway. But for sake of proving a point go ahead Mr.A and your fans, do continue to bash people with flawed logic and utter bigotry. Prove that establishing mob mentality is as easy as shouting angry words... That the human race despite thousands of years of development will happily get involved in acts of hatred to people they barely know just so they can feel like they did something right.

      God I love Mr.A's fans. They're probably regular people (i.e not in expensive education) and they just know better. My favorite moment was when a fan came over and tried to explain Asa's logic which was quickly debunked and the person left defeated by words such as ethnocentric and ethno-relativism. They then had to retaliate by taking my comments and quote mining me to make me appear insane. How class Mr.A and your fans, if you can't win just do the same thing that made you lose. Keep inspiring Bigotry Mr.A, Karma has plans for you.

    Also this little thing

I could push a kid away from an oncoming train and save his life and those guys would still be like "Oh he did it cause he wanted to PUSH A KID". And yeah, if Bores pulled the "WAAAAH REMOVE AD BLOCK" card, they'd be all over that and enraged over it. Such hypocrisy."

      No we just think you're a douchebag. Oh and we apparently whine about whatever you make? Because from what I've seen its only when you start stupid flame wars.

      " I could push a kid away from an oncoming train and save his life and those guys would still be like "Oh he did it cause he wanted to PUSH A KID"."

      Because clearly we have done oh so similar things directed at y- oh wait we never have. Because the only thing we have ever even discussed here 90% of the time is when you start stupid flame wars.


      ". And yeah, if Bores pulled the "WAAAAH REMOVE AD BLOCK" card, they'd be all over that and enraged over it. Such hypocrisy."."

      I doubt we would. But I'm sure you would never DARE insult make a video about Bores having a video like that

      Uh yeah you did say his opinion are facts. Asa rarely props up his statements with actual evidence. Just like Asa you have trouble with context. So let me write out the context in a clear as day format. We were just talking about Asa's pointless and unwarranted bashing of linkara for reasons you can see above in the comments section. Nothing Asa says is a proper fact and even his strongest argument is misapplied. Continue to not read our comments King_76, your only feeding the sentiment we have here.

  33. Just had a rather long argument with Asa and the ditzy twins (Ben and Buggin)
    Apparently when I had an experiment calling Asa fat (experiment for Ladybuggins reaction) she basically said it was horribly wrong.
    Even though a couple weeks ago Constantine and her bombarded Jdup with fat jokes. Double standard.

    Along with their theory I misquote all of her comments. (Of course none of them DARE even check the comments to see if they are correct, they are, but they just made the usual assumption that I'm wrong they are right)

      Asa's one whacked up person. Again, I'm fine with him suddenly becoming friends with poor-quality reviewers, but when it comes to someone with a log cyber-history of nothing but wrong, I'm sorry but that just screams idiocy.

  39. *NEWSFLASH*

    Chris has uploaded a new review; it's Star Trek on the NES! However here's the good part, the title:

    "Star Trek NES Review - Ep 9 (into darkness)"

    Yes, he really added the 'into darkness' part into the title, I mean really. Sure other reviewers have tied their reviews into current releases but at least AVGN didn't call his Indiana Jones episode review "Indiana Jones Games (Kingdom of the Crystal Skull)".
