Endless Skylanders and Empty Theaters

Before I begin, I would like to report that I am, once again, skipping Attempts the News. Everything this week has just been dull, and looking at what I've written so far, half of it is just complaining how boring the stories are. I figured nobody would like to read that, so I'm skipping this week.

To make up for it, I'll discuss the two things Bores has been doing. Skylanders, and the Pursuit of the Paranormal premiere.

On October 13th, Skylanders Swap Force came out in North America (the 16th in Australia and today in Europe). Bores celebrated by making FIVE VIDEOS (so far)  where he shows off many of the figures. He claims he got them from Activision, but I doubt they would be that generous (it's Activisoin).
The videos are, like the news articles, boring. It's just Bores droning on and on about the figures. Unboxing them and releasing "buyer's guides" that don't judge a character on how they play, but whether or not Bores thinks they're "cool". It's a waste of time, video, and camera battery.
And surprisingly, we're not the only ones that hate this. All the videos are filled with comments saying they're tired of Skylanders, with many of them saying they've unsubbed and want "the Irate Gamer back". Some are calling him a sell-out too.
You see this Chris, or rather "Linda"? This is why you're losing fans! Not because of my blog, but you've completely lost focus and would rather endlessly talk about a franchise engineered to drain parent's wallets. This is the year that's giving us the rest of the Eighth Generation, the year that gave us Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us, Pokemon X & Y, Bioshock Infinite, and gems like The Wonderful 101. But you refuse to talk about any of this. PlayStation 4? I don't care, it's not Skylanders!
It's been over a month since you've done a proper review (Rayman Legends), and that wasn't even well done, you half-assed it by only playing like an hour.
Also, according SocialBlade, people are unsubscribing in droves. They really don't like the Skylanders videos.

Why don't you make a separate Skylanders channel? That way, the people who subscribed for the Irate Gamer, only get the Irate Gamer. They don't have to watch all these vlogs where you fumble around with plastic action figures for 6 minutes! Other channels talk about Skylanders, but they don't do it to the extent you do! That's why Skylanders exclusive channels exist, follow their example!

But what of Pursuit of the Paranormal?
On the evening of October 12th, Chris premiered the film at an old theater in Toledo, Ohio, after spending thousands trying to get it on TV (even being told by SyFy that nobody watches ghost hunting shows anymore). How did it go?
Thankfully, I managed to get a testimonial thanks to Uatu (the brave man that played through the Irate Gamer Game and took pictures for us all). He managed to contact one of the vendors there, the owner of "Mama Tracy Inc.". I looked them up, and they do psychic readings. I see bullshit attracts bullshit, good to know.

According to her, the movie had some "awesome orbs and apparitions" (yeah sure), but only 20-30 people actually showed up. My guess is that the number leans towards 20. For comparison, I attended a midnight opening of Pokemon X & Y, and there had to be least 60 people that showed (and that's a minimum). She stated that she couldn't attend the ghost hunt though. Meaning that there were people that only showed up for the movie.
It sounds like Pursuit of the Paranormal's premiere was a bust. Only a handful of people actually showed up. Bores hasn't said a word about the premiere doing well (if it did, he would make a video boasting about it), the only thing we have is Linda's claim it did well, but we know she's really Bores, and the praise was clearly hollow denial.
I'm pretty sure Bores is really upset about this. If you watch the Skylanders videos, he has really sad eyes, sometimes looking like he just spent time crying before turning on the camera. I'd feel bad, but the only one at fault is him. After all these years, he doesn't seem to get what his fans want, and why he's "popular". People want reviews of certain games, he doesn't give them. People want Call of Duty or Minecraft, and he completely ignores them, instead talking about Skylanders some more.

Will the premiere bust and loads of angry comments on his Skylanders videos finally change him? Will he see what he's doing wrong and try to change it? Probably not, he's really damn stubborn.

You may also noticed that it's been two months and he still hasn't brought up the Irate Gamer Game. Why is that? Does he know that it's a total piece of shit and would be completely embarrassed if he mentioned it? Does he know that he's not going to get money out of this? Either way, nobody is buying it. As of today (October 18th), the full game now costs a dollar. Compared to when it came out, when it was $4. Yeah, there's not going to be a sequel. Mad Media Labs wasted 3 years on this piece of shit, and they're going to get nothing. You should have scrapped the project, instead of rushing it out to beat AVGN Adventures.

I actually don't know what the future holds. Is he ever going to finish his story line? Will we ever see another IG Short, which he claimed to have a ton of ideas for but only made two? Is History of Video Games dead? Is it nothing but Skylanders from here on out? Is GotGame ever going to fire him?
Well, whatever happens, I'll be here. Calling out all the lies.

  1. At this point, I really just kinda feel sorry for him. My own blog is a very niche product with only a minimal number of viewers and even fewer comments, but still scores higher on views per month than Chris. I hope he learns to figure out why this is, and takes a lesson from it all.

    ReplyDelete
  2. I think the big problem with Chris is that he's basically a 12-year old in a man's body. And I don't actually mean this as an insult. I mean, think about it for a second. He acts very immaturely towards others, refuses to take criticism, and he makes impulsive decisions without taking into consideration the consequences.

    In some ways, I do wish for him to have an ultimate downfall (considering some of the worst things he's done), but in others I actually do feel a bit sorry for him.

    If he were to own up to his mistakes, admit his faults, and apologize for all the crap he's pulled (and stop using the sockpuppet account), maybe he could rebound from all this.

    Knowing Bores, though, this doesn't seem likely.

  3. Having watched his recent reviews by proxy via watching ICBINAVGN, I'll admit - Bores has some funny ideas. The "game hitting Not-Wilson" joke, the door hitting him in the face in the X-Men review, etc. The problem is his legitimately good ideas are bogged down by terrible jokes, random references (My name is RANDOM MAN and I'm complaining about this guy being too random!), awful toilet humor (Iceman? Really?) his complete lack of comedic timing and zero acting skills. He has some funny ideas, he's just terrible at executing them and he doesn't seem to have anyone to help him weed out the stupid ones.

    1. It also doesn't help that he never changes up or does new things with the jokes. At least nostlgia critic and Linkara change things up every once in a while. Heck, I like Bobsheaux for the fact that he doesn't really have recurring gags.

      Delete
  4. I do genuinely feel quite sorry for Chris. He had his hopes up, but it didn't turn out the way he expected it to.

    But at the same time, I can't feel sorry for him because he took this ridiculous risk and didn't bother to do the research. None of his fans have ever cared about Haunted Investigators and no one would air it because these types of shows are dead.

    Chris really needs to start changing his ways and taking into consideration all the criticism he has received. Because if he doesn't, he's just pulling his fade into obscurity closer and closer to the present. And the worst thing is, if the day does eventually come, it will be his fault.

  5. Okay...I have to admit like everyone, I feel sorry for Bores. I mean, He imagined his movie was going to be a hit after promoting it online, on the news, and the radio station...but with only 20 attendees out of 600+ seating theater, yeah it didn't sound too great. I imagined he went home depressed and would rather forget about it while making Skylander videos in order to make him happier.

    I'll him some respect if he just tells the truth about himself and nothing of it.

  6. I've just checked out Chris' Skylanders videos. And I have to say, they were extremely painful to watch (and I mean that in a saddening way). He looks and sounds very upset and drained. He also seems really out of it. I dunno, he just looks like he could break down at any moment and seems to not really care (and I don't mean that in the usual way). The videos also lack any of his upbeat music. Poor guy.

  8. like everyone here, I also really want to feel sorry for him. however I think of all the stupid shit he pulled over the years, (false flagging, blocking people regardless if they gave constructive criticism or not, saying James Rolfe ripped him off, (and no. that 2004 Back To The Past video of Bores's doesn't count) etc.) all my sorrow goes right down the crapper. if you weren't such an asshole to everybody who rightfully called your ass out, things might be different.

      Don't forget to add "formed alliances with other douchebags for not other reason than because they hated AVGN". We must also take the actions of Ladybugin777 and batdamn (even though that's not him) into consideration. Irate Gamer could easily stop the hate coming towards him by not trolling people with puppet accounts and telling batdamn off instead of encouraging him to continue operating on a logical fallacy. Irate Gamer is doing everything he can to make it look he's had this coming.

  9. I have been debating this for a while and I can't really come up with a solution. The debate is whether or not I should eventually try to monetize my LPs. The thing is it would not be for the money but for trying to help get the medication I need for FSGS. Right now it is unnecessary since I somewhat have insurance but I do no know how long that will last and if I would even be able to get a job in time.

    1. Well if you think it'll work then I guess it would be worth a shot. Its not like youtube monetization can backfire... can it?

    2. Well there are currently two things holding me back from attempting it, first is my ability to put forth a quality good enough for it and second I wouldn't want to guilt trip people. I just wouldn't feel right if I got money from people just feeling sorry for my condition.

      Delete
    3. Well I have made my decision I will set a goal to reach, if I pass the goal I will try to monetize if I don't I will try something else.

    5. That should work now. Honestly I don't know why I didn't I try that before.

  10. A user asked how Irate's movie went? LB's response:

    "IG said it went real good and the ghost hunt sold out! He plans to have more ghost hunts in the future. Everyone had a great fun time :D"

    so 20 - 30 people paid $50, brought their own ghost hunting gear, went on a 4 hour ghost hunting tour, and got free pizza and drinks.

    I've got to ask Uatu: is this true?

    1. From the article and Uatu's initial description, I'm going to say it's Bores trying to make the event sound like it went better than it did.

    2. Did somebody record footage from the premiere?

      Delete
    3. If so and upload it onto youtube, guess what? Chris will flag it for copyright/piracy.

      Delete
    4. Well, if they recorded Chris's actual movie and posted it, then I'm sorry to say that it'd be perfectly within his right to flag it for copyright.piracy UNLESS it were a review of said movie. Even still, I'm not sure it's entirely legal to record a movie on a video camera and then post a review of it before it's even available to the public. I could be wrong.

      If you just mean recording the actual premiere and not the movie, then yeah he wouldn't have a legitimate copyright claim.

      Delete
    5. just the actual premiere, because i'd like to see how much 'fun' they were having.

      Delete
  11. I got to admit, I do feel sorry for Bores too. But still, he did brought this upon himself. He shouldn't have emptied his entire bank account just to fund a ghost hunting film that nobody would be interested to watch and rush Mad Media Labs to get the Irate Gamer game out especially when there is no advertising to promote it (Except an article on his website). He shouldn't have mindlessly kept his expectations so high thinking that the game can compete with AVGN Adventures and releasing the movie on the same weekend Pokemon X and Y came out was a very good idea and believing his film can become a franchise. This is really poor planning and managements and EA/Capcom levels of fail. He really has no one to blame but himself.

  12. I want to believe this is really her:

    "Micharion this message is for you: I heard about your dilema and thought I could help? There is an organization that helps anyone that is not able to afford their medications since they can run into hundreds of dollars a month. Please contact Johnson & Johnson Patient Assistance Program at 1-800-652-6227. Or the main office 1-888-477-2669. This program has been indorced by Montell Williams and has helped many people in need. Hope that helps you out and you get the care you need. This is not a joke so please accept it as a kind gesture to someone in need of a solution. (By the way it is free of charge and they pay all costs of the meds. as long your meds. are on their list. It's worth a try to see if you qualify and I do personally know people that are on this program) :D"

    Micharion, I'd be wary about this. this is unlike her, she usually tells us to basically go to hell in a hand basket. and all of a sudden she wants to be nice to us?

    1. Yes I also found it odd. But it is possible she knows people who went through FSGS. Put simply it is not a simple disease. It is very likely I will have to take an immunosupressant for the rest of my life which is why I was worried about that cold I had. The reason it is not simple is that part of my kidney is scarred. The doctor also said that they want to keep my kidneys going as long as possible. Not to mention that if I were to get a kidney transplant it is very likely the same thing would happen again. I don't like to look for the evil in people it's just that I somehow find it.

  14. Bores deserves no sympathy. He engineered his fanbase with rip-off reviews and fake contests. You reap what you sow.

  15. I really want to feel sorry for Bores myself, but with all the crap he's caused over the past six years, why should I? He can't take criticism (just like Amy's Baking Company), he resorts to stealing ideas from others and passing them off as his own, having to pose as his mother all the time, and holding a damn contest whenever he loses subscribers. And, oh yeah, his fucking Skylanders obsession that has been going on since 2012 (if I'm correct).

    Bores has a not-so-bright future ahead of him.

    3. It also doesn't help that i think he is also spending huge amounts of money on skylanders since he is obssesed. Problem is, since he barely releases vidoes on Youtube or Gotgame, he's basically going to run out of funds. I think he is so conviced he's failed that he has terminated all of his other shows (including IG, the one series that he ever had any relative sucess in) and doing skylanders bcause that gave him views (never mind that his most viewed video was his neo review of SSBB with 6 million views). I feel like his content is dwindling before his eyes and now he is trying to find something to pick himslef up with but just can't seem to bring himself to see that he is essentially beating a dead horse. Skylanders is a fad that his fans are tired of. I doubt he can keep up the blog, either.

    6. If you really wanted to ask a question like you could probably ask 'What source are you getting your information from batdan?' But it would still be a (somewhat) dumb question since its obvious that Batdan is getting information based on what Irate Gamer himself is posting and probably from people who have emailed him.

      Delete
    7. "If you really wanted to ask a question like *that* you" -fixed grammar issue

      It would still be a somewhat dumb question because quite frankly Batdan makes it clear what he is referring to. And it would be silly to not do a google search and check out the source for yourself. Why wait for someone to tell you their source when you can search right now and see if the issue being discussed is being done on a solid factual basis? It would be like going on a news article talking about an ecological disaster and asking "where did you get your information from" when its clear that the reporter is at the site of the disaster. If you really want to know if it happened, just google it and search if other websites confirm it or go there yourself using google earth or something. Confirming whether data is true or not is something the asker must do and not something the asker should leave to someone else.

You all are always on the wrong path to logic with your made up IG theories. You need to give your imagination a rest. IG isn't sad and isn't planning on stopping any of the interests he is and will be involved with. Including his paranormal documentary and ghost hunts, Skylanders video's, IG nes game reviews.

    5. I can believe that Irate Gamer won't stop making videos, but it's hard to believe everything else that s/he says. The title "The Bores who cried Rolfe" comes to mind. Since Bores has lied and exaggerates a lot for so long, no one really believes him, even if there actually is truth in his statements (there's still a high volume of lying on his part I think).

      Regarding LB. Even if it truly is Chris's mom who's been commenting and defending her son all over youtube/the internet, he loses either way. As himself masquerading as LB, just proves that his lies and deception (as well as denial) have not ceased and it makes him look worse than he already is. If it's truly his mother as LB, it shows a true lack of maturity for someone who's obviously past her 50s, and that would speak volumes about himself. It's a sad thing if a 50+ year old mother's daily activities consist of [ab]using authority on youtube.

  26. He was warned that hardly anyone is interested in Ghost Hunting shows nowadays, yet he went along with this investment anyway. He probably didn't like getting his Pursuit of the Paranormal movie rejected by networks, but it would have saved him from such a loss if he wised up. I truly hoped Bores didn't waste a lot money for this event, but if he did, then he has to face up to facts that his work/persona is not as great as he thinks and the few numbers speak for itself.

    What Chris/"Linda" fails to realize is that the IGsucks blog exists because Irate Gamer has and still makes awful and sub par videos. If he/"they" have read the critiques on this blog and improved his quality and presentation, then this blog would not chronicle his failures and shenanigans and we'd show more respect for him. As it stands, however, his videos (including the latest Irate Gamer HD series) are still lousy and quite unwatchable and this blog will continue to document the failures.

      I don't think Irate Gamer will retire in the foreseeable future (lazy and half-assed maybe), his 'show' is still going to continue on (with long delays though). Honestly, that is fine, because video making is what he's capable of. In fact, we'd find Irate Gamer okay or tolerable if he not only improved the quality of his videos, but also if he dropped that arrogant, pretentious attitude he's always carried. With his shenanigans though, from sockpuppets, bogus "evidence" (against AVGN), and outright denial, he has earned all the flack and criticism; it's all up to him to change himself so he can be a little more likable.

      @mr.kill ultra
      The majority of IG's fanbase reflect the kind of person he is. There may be a handful of legit fans who enjoy his work, but for the most part, his fans are certainly not helping Irate Gamer look better. (Once again, if Bores improved himself, he'll earn positive feedback and more interested fans)

Then there's the blogger who ip traced ladybuggin777 and Irate Gamer and noticed that they have the same address. So there's no real definitive evidence yet that Ladybuggin777 exists

    4. Although an investigation seems to point out that Chris is indeed masquerading as his own mom, my earlier point remains the same: he loses either way.

      I think it's more pathetic if it truly is his mom. A 50+ year old woman spending her time going on a one-mom crusade against her son's critics? It would illustrate that she's allowing his delusions to continue rather than improving his flaws.

    5. The IP trace could mean that Chris is still living with his mom...which is still kinda sad since the guy's in his 30's.

It's about time you all start bettering yourselves, for the good. Truth is knowledge ~"

    7. Oh dear so every one on this particular blog is a problem and is constantly trying to be essentially the scum of the earth. Buggin how in the world do you not realize how much of a hypocrite you truly are. Of course considering how long the lies have gone your sanity is probably not the best thing anymore especially considering who you have in your featured channels list and favorite almost all his videos. Of course considering how you seem incapable of spelling correctly simple words and his abhorrence to education. Also there is the fact that Bill Gaede, who is in fact a criminal since he was the reason for a law to prevent someone like him doing that again, has a hatred for mathematics. Thing is you seem to build an inner circle of dunderheads and morons. Really are you just trying to make yourself seem smarter by comparison. Pitiful, sad, little human being that you are you are probably going to massively rip the context out of this well, go ahead and try. I won't leave you alone until every last shred of you sanity is gone.

  31. Hey, longtime reader, 1st post, etc. I first saw IG when looking at suggested videos on retro game reviews. I had no idea the blog existed, but I'm glad I found it, since this has opened my eyes to inconsistencies of Bores, as well as make me laugh at the reveal f his mistakes. But I also agree that the first step if he wants to be better respected is to accept criticism like most other web stars.

It's not like anyone keeps a list of people who regularly do things on the site (though you'll certainly start recognizing people after a short while).

      I don't know why Conrad seems to think that contacting Batdan is something members of this site do but quite frankly I have never directly talked to Batdan and I don't see why you would even need to if you want to comment on this blog and contribute to its community.

  38. On a side note, when getting a new game does anyone know what good review sites are? I keep hearing theories about how the big ones are sometimes bribed to present positive reviews.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would recommend looking at as many sites as possible. Metacritic would be a start, followed by IGN, followed by gamespot etc. Just remember its important to read the review and watch gameplay footage. Every review site has its problems whether it be EGM giving Aliens Colonial Marines a 9.0. Gamespot not understanding that Metal Fatigue is an RTS or IGN being well, ignorant.

      The problem is that reviewers are fallible and all it takes is a sudden mood swing for a bad game to be good or a good game to be shit. I`m sure that plenty of gamers have found certain games to be really good when in reality they`re a very small minority. FPS and the 4X genre tend to get hit with most bias and reviewer fallibility in my opinion.

      Last but not least you could always ask people you know for what they think about the game? Just go on a forum and ask if the game's worth buying. What they like the most about the game, what part was least interesting etc.

      Delete
    2. You could also ask people in the game store you plan on getting it from. If they're honest, they'll tell you if a game is worth buying. I asked about Hyperdimension Neptunia when I was on the fence about it and the guy was totally honest. I do not regret my purchase.

    6. "You really are a sick person and just not pysically, more like mentally too!"

      So for the record you are not psychically sick but you are mentally sick. Either that's double think or she's saying you have a clean bill of health. That's like being drunk and having a blood alcohol content of 0 that's one hell of an oxymoron. Not only that but if you auto correct to physically it doesn't work because she said just not physically so that means you're not sick physically. 'More like mentally too' also means that you are also not sick mentally given the context of sentence.

      " It's kids like you that go around bulling others till they snap then the bring a gun to school and blow the place up."

      Says person still talking about people who have done nothing to you. Have you tried going after the people who are actually a danger to Chris? like yourself? Because you are definitely crossing the moral event horizon here Chris. Trying to make people kill themselves? Are you really at that phase of the Chris Weston Chandler cycle?

      "God have mercy on your soul because from here on in, I sure don't"

      Nice, follow the line about how we're the bullies and then say that you're gonna bully us. You do realize that the line means that you are gonna harm us right? That's a threat that can be taken seriously but of course youtube won't ban Ladybuggin777 for that because they know she's Chris.

  40. I don't really get it, if Bores is some partner with YouTube, why would they want to be associating with him at all.

There must be other, more important partners so why do business with Bores?

    1. I don't get it either. But there are too many youtube partners who have gotten pwned for copyright (real or not) and never came back. But Irate Gamer despite being an obvious troll, having previously stolen footage (posting it on another video hosting website still shouldn't prevent him from being punished), ran scam contests using fraud companies, and not maintaining a schedule despite claiming that youtube would fire him shows that youtube really gives Chris Bores preferential treatment.

    2. I did see some of the Third Rate Gamer's videos, and he really succeeds in making Bores' "subtle" shit stand out more clear. Wonder why he puts out no new vids (unless this is a play on Chris only releasing at most 2 retro game reviews per year). But I'm sure he gets flamed by IG fan boys.

  44. Oh god. here's what Asalieri says about Chris Bores:

    "Chris is a decent guy who made ONE mistake back in the day. He imitated another guy's review almost word for word. Then he did it one more time for good measure. He's never been able to live that down of course, and has been hated ever since. Sure, his videos are hokey and lack good writing, but so what? Does that make him the antichrist? Can you honestly say there's a truly good reason to shower him with hatred today? I love how people are suddenly saying that I somehow compelled him to do that Cheetahman parody. I had nothing to do with that. But I do know that he's a good person, and I wish him the best in all his endeavors. I admire his tenacity, considering the hatred that man puts up with on a daily basis."

    one more for now:

    "he financed his own projects, never asked for a handout. The man hasn't started any drama with anyone, despite the numerous attacks on his person. I respect him immensely for persevering in the face of so much adversity. But people are gonna spin negatively, because well, misery loves company."
