IG Attempts the News: Can't Title, Pokemon

Last week on “Indecisive as hell”
Don’t look at me, I’m just a simple blog writer! I don’t pretend to be my mom and attack anyone that’s the least bit negative to me!

What will this week bring?

Stories from October 5th 2013

“Garbage Pail Kids Cards Figures Return as Minikins”

People still care about Garbage Pail Kids?

“Well Topps was nice enough to send over a care package” If this is true, why would they do this? Because of that positive video you made three fucking years ago? Yeah, it’s been that long.
“I’ll be doing a video on them next week” This video came out on October 9th, and it’s a boring eight minute vlog about the toys. I have noticed Bores is making longer videos now, has he discovered that YouTube stopped tracking views and started tracking duration watched? Oh and it’s a contest, the comments are flooded with “Pick Me”. But knowing Bores, he’ll only pick the most loyal fan boys.
“but for now, heres a picture to wet your appetite!” *looks* This is meant to get fans excited? Wow that’s lame.

Stories from October 6th 2013

What’s this? Bores posted a story on a Sunday? Wow, it must really important if he posts it on his “day off”?

“Pokemon – Eevee Evolution Frozen Cocktails”

… Never mind, it’s just pointless.

“Not sure how any of these would even taste” Okay, you need to stop this. You need to stop including in almost every article “I’m not sure how blah blah blah blah”, it’s a terrible thing for a writer to do.

Stories from October 7th 2013

“Dragon Ball Z – Life-Sized Papercraft Goku Statue”

First actual story of the week, and it’s more fan art. *sighs*

“Created by this crazy blogger” Why is he crazy? Because he has a bunch of action figures and manga on his shelf? Because he made this? Why won’t you give his name?
“is this inane awesome looking Goku Statue” It’s both inane and awesome? That’s a bit of a contradiction.

“Word has it that it took so much free time to build, it boggled my mind on just how many days you had to call off work in order to finish this bad boy. (assuming the creator actually has a job. I am beginning to wonder with all those paper craft items behind the Goku…)” My God, you’re an asshole. First of all, what word? Who’s saying all this stuff? Second, those aren’t paper craft figures behind him, those are actual action figures and statues! I recognize a number of them too. Ryu from Street Fighter, Milla Maxwell from Tales of Xillia, Groudon and Blissey from Pokemon, Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, Snow White (Disney), Death from Darksiders II, Krillin, etc.

“Great job” So you insult him, then you praise him. Whatever…

“DC Injustice – Finished with DLC, Now releases Ultimate Edition Nov 29”

Technically, that’s wrong. While the complete edition does come out November 29th in Europe and other territories, it’s coming out November 12th in North America. Considering this a site a operated by someone living in the United States, I would think he’d be more accurate with that.

“I guess i should’ve just waited till Warner Brothers was done releasing DLC to pick up this title” Have you paid attention to this generation at all? Successful games with lots of DLC would eventually get a “complete edition” that includes everything.

“To add more salt to the wound they are offering it for the same price you purchased the non-complete version of the game just months ago.” It’s a better deal, you’re getting all the DLC for what is essentially free. This is nothing new.

“Dang it. Expect Arkham Origins to go the same route in April 2014 or so.” Seriously, how deep is the hole you were hiding in? And how big was the rock covering it? You can’t be this ignorant.

“Disney’s Infinity – Jack Skellington Now at Gamestop”

“Not sure if anyone has been still playing Disney’s Infinity” Kwing is. You know, that guy who also does videos on GotGame but is far more informed and way nicer than you are?
“Just another hopefully dream I wish Infinity could do.” Is it me, or is the lack of proofreading getting even worse?

“Creepy – Sealife Sea Sponges Looking like Mahna Mahna Muppets”

“Well the Huffington Post has come out and said that this is a picture of Sea Sponges that resembles Cookie Monster.” I can see it. It’s blue, has big eyes, and a big mouth made for eating COOKIES (om nom nom nom).
“After gazing at it for a few hour, rotating, cropping, and examining the photo negative, I’m still at a a loss for how this even remotely resembles cookie monster.” … It’s blue. Get some fucking glasses.
“If anything it looks like the Mahna Mahna Muppets from yesteryear.” They were in the 2011 Muppet movie, I don’t see how they can be considered “old”.
“Some Huffingtons will never learn.” Hey moron, the Huffington Post is named after one person, Arianna Huffington. The contributors aren’t “Huffingtons”. I’m pretty sure the person that wrote the article isn’t a Huffington. *reads through* No name listed, but it does direct to an MSN article where they got the news. My point is, don’t be stupid Chris.

“South Park Teaching Us How Minecraft is viewed”

You mean played right? You don’t view Minecraft, you play it. Unless you’re one of the millions that subscribe to Minecraft YouTube channels. I don’t even get how you can watch that, it’s so boring!

“If you are an oldschool gamer and caught last weeks Southpark, then you probably laughed your ass off.” Oldschool? In what dimension is Minecraft considered oldschool?
“I get a lot of comments for me to play minecraft or do videos on minecraft” Wait, so he does notice those? Okay, then how about the Call of Duty comments? Or the comments from fans that are sick of all the Skylanders videos?
“and this episode pretty much sums up why I haven’t. Call me old school but I can’t get into the game.” Apparently, it’s really difficult to get into what’s essentially a giant Lego sandbox. This isn’t a matter of being “oldschool”, it’s a matter of “you’re too stupid to figure it out”.

My head hurts and it’s only Monday.

Stories from October 8th 2013

“Angry Birds – Now Goes Tropic Cola Soft Drinks?”


Another day, another drink. I could use a drink myself…

“Angry birds is back with more crazy merchandise now outshining the once Star Wars Merchandise giant Star Wars in taking up every offer they can scoop up.” I… I can’t even begin. The repetition, the poor comparison, the whole “Angry Birds are back” statement even though they never left. If this is his idea of a joke, it’s not funny.
“Originally sold and marketed in Finland and Europe” We can now add geography to the list of things Chris fails at. Finland is a part of Europe, so by saying “Finland and Europe”, you’re being redundant.

“Disney Infinity – Here is your Series 2, Coming at you Soon!”

“I haven’t been really persuaded to pick this game up after reviewing it but I know there are still a lot of fans of this game out there” Contradicting what you said yesterday when you said “does anyone even play this?”
Bores would make a wonderful anchor for CNN or FOX News. No impartial views at all.

“Happy Halloween – Want to Date a Ghost? There’s a Site for That!”

“Only thing you have to be a ghost to date a ghost. Okay, so how the hell is the ghost supposed to use the keyboard? Boy this was well thought out.” Don’t kid yourself, you’d love to use this site if it means meeting “real” ghosts. Honestly, this is a lot like those vampire dating sites, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that there’s a ghost dating site.
“Whats next? Zombie Dating Sites? Date a Zombie, fulfill your fantasy of getting your head ripped off!” Clearly you’ve never heard of necrophilia.

“Meat Artist Back, This time with Pokemon Meowth, Bulbasaur, Pikachu"


God, this is such a waste of good food. Especially when beef prices are going way up.
If I may digress a bit, but why is it when people do Pokemon art projects, it’s always the first 151? What’s wrong with the other generations?

“Pursuit of the Paranormal – Setting up for the Premiere”
By the time this post goes up, it will be the day of the premiere. I still have a hard time believing he sold a lot of tickets. I just get the feeling he’s going to walk out and see a mostly empty theater. I say “mostly” because he’s bringing friends and family.

“Very excited to finally show this to the fans!!” I imagine any ghost hunting fans you have don’t live in Ohio, and likely couldn’t make it.

“Super Mario Bros Perler Beads gone Crazy on Canvas”

“I think a lot of use have made sprites out of Perler beads at one time or another" A lot of “use”? How do you even make a typo like that? Even the iPhone’s auto-correct wouldn’t do that.
So is Bores admitting those sprites are really Perler art and not “wood” like he once claimed? I don’t know…

“Star Trek: TNG Giant Captain Picard Pixelated Quilt – Make it So”
“Yeowza!” Fake excitement!
“Who needs a cup of Earl Grey to wake you up when you have this thing staring back at you in the morning!” This is scary? I don’t see how looking at that can wake you up. You’d get up, see the giant Picard quilt, and then look at your life and realize you wasted money on it. Wait, I did that wrong.
Really, that seemed like a lame attempt at a Star Trek reference. “Picard drinks Earl Gray tea you guys! It’s a Star Trek reference! I’m nerdy you guys!”

“Batman Arkham City – Nightwing Full Scale Light Up Prop Weapons”

“Although for the $1000.00 price point, they should’ve laced these things with real electricity!” Welcome to the world of collectables! They’re far more expensive than they need to be!
“Take that mr. neighbor! I’ll teach you to keep your damn barking dog in at night!” Oh hey, haven’t seen Psycho Chris in a while. Good to know he still likes talking about violently hurting people over petty things. Batman would be so disappointed.

“Skylanders Giants Frito Lay Sidekicks finally Here”

I’d say “only a few more days until Swap Force”, but this relates to last year’s game. *sighs*

“Well son of a gun, I don’t wander into the junk food aisles anymore” Bullcrap! You’re constantly talking about junk food, and you have junk food in a lot of videos. Quit trying to excuse why you don’t hear certain bits of news.

“Adventure Time’s Custom LEGO BMO as Functional Linux Computer”

Is the reason he keeps talking about BMO is because it’s a video game console and he’s trying to still keep up this image that he’s a gamer? *shrugs*

“Having a Linux computer as the operating system, this guy can play video, video games, web surf, and more!” Wow! Just like… every other fucking operating system out there.

“Superman vs Batman – Larry David as Mister Mxyzptlk Rumor”

Nothing really wrong with the article content, but the picture… For some reason, Bores took an image of Larry David in a purple suit (probably from an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm) then poorly drew a bowler hat on top of him. Oh and it has a watermark. Did you really have to go to this much effort to report a RUMOR? Just post a picture of Larry David, it’s not that hard.

“Angry Birds Cartoons – Season 1, Volume 1 DVD, Blu-ray announced”

You know, the past 24 hours had announcements like “Final Fantasy VI remake for iOS, and it uses the same awful graphics as FFV iOS” and “Grand Theft Auto V coming to PC”. But he opens with god damn Angry Birds.

“Dear Lord, Angry Birds has now bombarded the home movies market.” Actually, this is a cartoon on TV. In its native homeland of Finland, it airs on MTV3 (unrelated to our MTV), while here in the US it airs on Nicktoons (in Canada it’s on Teletoon).
“And yes there are bonus features” Reading through them, they’re better than yours!
“Excuse me now while I go wash my car off from Angry Birds droppings” Pointless random humor? … Yeah, pointless random humor.

“Star Wars Jawa Sandcrawler Soap”

… Soap. You’re writing up articles about soap. Are you serious?
I don’t care that it’s Star Wars soap, it’s still soap! You use it to clean yourself, why would you talk about this? Who the fuck would even buy this? Why would you think people would care about hearing this? Oh god, I think my mind is having a breakdown.

*goes for a long walk* That’s better. Surely the next article can’t be worse.

“Doctor Who – PREVIEWS Exclusive K-9 Plush, Woof!”


Damn it…

Wait, a PREVIEWS exclusive plush? Is he talking about that catalog that previews upcoming comic books? Is that still even being made? When did they start selling things?

“The dang things also talks! Wonder what he’ll say besides woof?” Hey dumbass, K-9 was an actual talking robot dog. He never said “woof”. Also, K-9 showed up in the modern series so you have no excuse to act this ignorant. Oh wait, you’re Chris Bores, you’re a moron no matter what.

“‘Breaking Bad’ Creators Offered $75M to Produce 3 More Episodes”

It’s over people! Let it go! It had an ending that tied everything up!

“I think 3 more episodes could be squeezed out for sure. After all, there are these things called hospitals that can revive cast members who have supposedly thought dead” Don’t insult the show’s ending like that. I know how it ends and I feel doing that would be just as insulting as creating a Scarface video game where Tony Montana survived the end of the movie and managed to recover at a hospital. … Fucking hell.

Bores also put an emoticon at the end to further insult our intelligence. Urgh.

“Pokemon Fans really digging new Anime Red And Blue Cartoon Series”

Wow! You are late, so very late, with this news. The special aired on October 2nd, the news about it is at least a month old.

“So there is a new Pokemon show out there” It’s not a new show, it was just a special. Though I’d really like it to be a show considering how awful the on-going anime is now.
“Might want to make me play pokemon yellow again.” Hahaha, that’s funny, claiming you’ve actually played a Pokemon game. We know you didn’t give a shit about Pokemon until you learned just how popular it is.

Oh, and Yellow? Why not that new game? You know, the one that’s coming out tomorrow, the same day you’re holding your little ghost hunting premiere? Oh yeah, X & Y! Pokemon fan my ass…

“Skylanders Swap Force – Wave 1 Checklist Buyers Guide”

Oh dear lord…

The article itself is just a checklist of the new figures and games with prices, not too offensive. No, the offensive part is the picture he included at the top. It’s a picture of him crouching behind his table which is covered in 8 new Skylanders figures still in the packaging. Looking at the figures in the picture, and the prices he included, he spent about *calculates* $104 dollars, and that’s not including tax! My God!

I’m sorry, but didn’t Chris say that he spent thousands on his ghost movie? I would think the smart move would be NOT spending over a $100 dollars on toys! And that’s probably not even all of them, he probably has the Lightcore and Series 2/3 figures. The former being $13 a piece, and the latter $10. Plus, he’s probably going to get the Starter Set for both PS3 and 3DS, each one costing $75 dollars. This is too much! You’re far too irresponsible with your money! You don’t get enough views to warrant crazy purchases like this!
Once the ghost movie bombs, Bores is going to be a lot of financial trouble. He may have to change his policy on crowd funding and look like an even bigger hypocrite.

That’s all for this week.
There was a video posted, an interview with a local FOX affiliate in Toledo about Pursuit of the Paranormal. Just a lot of ghost hunting bullshit. What’s interesting is that Bores seems more interested in this stuff than he ever has talking about video games. Now we see where his true interest lies. Just give up the gaming thing.

But now, Pokemon X and Y.

    "HEY BatDanNight. IG didn't buy all those newly released skylanders plus the new game. Activision sent them to him for free! Friggin idiot, Batty, you never do any research which is pretty tragic for someone who is the author of an internet gossip rag. Your jealous rage of IG is unraveling your mind ~"

    1. Seing how "she" is Bores, that's more true than it would seem. To be fair, it's possible he got all that stuff from his visit to the Skylanders' office, but even so it's still a bit obsessive.

      And boy, gotta love those manners. With an attitude like that, it's no wonder he was turned down so many times before deciding to release his movie himself. If the crap quality didn't scare buyers away, his behavior sure must have.

      Also, if it riles you up so badly, Bores, why don't you come on here yourself to give us this "verbal lashing"? Oh right, because you'd be burned in seconds.

    6. Ha ha, it's an insult because "she" replaced the number 14 with 0! Man, "she" sure owned me!

      Just like how he got burned and thumbed down like crazy by fanboys on that one video the Archfiend made back in January? (The video where he brings up how Chris gave him a shoutout.)

      @ Isolder74:
      "I thought she was suppose to be at the premiere too. Now she isn't...is this just to be conveniently not there?"

      Actually, I remember going to LadyBuggin777's YouTube channel a day or two ago and seeing in the discussions section that "she" would be unable to make it to the Pursuit of the Paranormal premiere in Toledo because she could not get a ride there by friends and "she" definitely didn't want to drive there during the nighttime hours. (Before anyone asks, I was NOT stalking.)
      I don't know about you, but "her" not being able to show up at the last minute seems too coincidental if you ask me.

      Delete
    8. I'm going to hazard a guess he went to his premiere and logged into his LadyBuggin account using his phone. Obviously, we can't prove this, but it seems like the most logical course of events.

  2. Looks at the time on the clock...HOLY CRAP HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN PLAYING!? But seriously, Bores is an idiot. I still can't get over how much he spends. And yet he still complains about the Injustice complete collection!? I don't know why since he won't ever play it again after his review...

    1. That's what I was thinking, too. Bores should've learned that most games are re-released with all DLC content and extras for gamers who don't have PSN or Xbox live accounts. Therefore, they can buy the game the same exact price.

      Good thing I waited for the complete collection and will buy it on Black Friday for $30.

  4. Oh dear. Well, I enjoyed Origins, and it seems they might be setting up more specials with Mew at the end. I personally don't find the existing anime that bad, but that's not too hard for me when most of the other stuff I've seen and/or recapped for my blog includes The Monotony of Haruhi Suzumiya Endless 8 (I got hit with a major case of Seinfeld is Unfunny even on the original series, but that was painful), IGPX: Intolerable Grand Prix (I have trouble finding out why people were so excited that it came back. I had never heard of it before this year, I was much happier about uncut One Piece being back); and friggin' Code Geass R2! I mean, I fully admit to the story structure being formulaic compared to the games; and it's every bit about marketing as it is about storytelling, but I'm taking the opportunity of the global launch to celebrate how the fandom has grown, no matter where they came from. By the way, PETA released another terrible "parody" game, Pokémon Red White and Blue. And it's even worse than last year's game. As a journalism major and Pokémon fan during diversity month, this was a bad move on their part. I made a very long video about the game; and I'll be uploading it in a moment. Also, I wish I could have been in New York for the party at Nintendo World Store last night; or even at the Gamestop in the next town. Still, there is demand for this launch, and you bet they had the supply. I should have the $280 for the games and a 3DS (hopefully I can get the red one with Xerneas and Yveltal on it); and I will openly admit to tuning into XY for the fall anime season (though my big new one will be Kill la Kill; made by the men behind my favorite, Gurren Lagann). See you around Dan, I need to go watch the subtitled version of Origins and a whole lot of other stuff to forget about this.

      "Still, there is demand for this launch, and you bet they had the supply."

      You got that right.
      Last night at a video gaming meet in my college's science building, I remember someone tried to download Pokémon Y from the Nintendo eShop when it became available at 11:00 p.m. CST. He eventually downloaded it, but only after a lot of error codes and perseverance.

      Delete
    3. @Spearmint. Yes. I believe it's right after the Genesect movie airs Saturday evening. They should be leaked within hours of the first airing. Apart from XY and Kill la Kill, I think that BlazBlue anime looks good too. @Shadow. Both GameStop and Walmart near were I live have plenty of tangible copies, which I think will be easier given how my internet connection is often less than desirable. Walmart also has the 3DS XL with Xerneas and Yveltal on the casing, and I hope they still have the red one in stock. I think I'll also pick up a new case for the 3DS and the first Rival Destinies DVD set. TTFN, guys.

    I disagree BatDan.
    The Minecraft videos (Let's Play, Things to do, Let's Build, etc.) made by the Achievement Hunters (Geoff, Gavin, Michael, Ray, Jack, & Ryan) of Roosterteeth / LetsPlay are very entertaining to watch in my opinion because of their different personalities and comedic humor.

      You know how in some movies when someone says something particularly scathing to someone else and they're trying desperately to come up with a clever comeback, they start to say something, but realize before they finish that it sucks, then move onto something else they came up with?

      Yeah, Norman Bores managed to do this in text. He could've deleted the part of the "insult" that didn't work, but he didn't. Great.

    You mean Scarface: The World Is Yours? As a fan of the movie (and the original 1930 one), I actually like the game's idea of having Tony survive the shootout, rebuild his empire, and seek revenge against Sosa. My only biggest complaints were buying exotics and they were at a high price and the fact you can't jump is another.

    If you don't like it cause it was insulting, Dan, that's cool with me. your opinion.

    Replies
    1. I can see why it's insulting though, I mean the ending was great and fit the tone of the film, but the game, while being a really good game, Tony's the same as he was in the film and lost all the development he had from his last moments in the film and never learns that crime never pays, in fact it actually helps him.

      Delete
    2. It's more of a what if story than anything. That thought alone is what keeps me from being upset with it. The story of The World is Yours is clumsy and mishandled. Bearing that in mind as you play, won't won't mind it... besides, that game has the most satisfying shotgun I've ever used in a game.

      Well actually he didn't do that in the game. And you as the player are expected to turn around an kill the hitman who originally killed him in the movie and then rampage out of the mansion. if you fail to turn around (or simply run down the stairs killing everyone) the hitman will kill you in the opening sequence if I recall correctly. So while the game is insulting to the theme of "a life of crime always ends in painful death" it is isn't as insulting to the point of outright insulting the ending of the movie. In fact the game is more along the lines of "what if Tony was a badass video game character?" as opposed to "what if Tony got away with everything?" seeing as how Tony goes super strong and kills everyone (including the shot-gunner assassin) and then cures his drug abuse problem in a cutscene.

    1. I ordered the game online via pre-order from Amazon, so I don't have it yet. According to tracking, I won't get my copy until Wednesday, but I have Fall Break starting Thursday, so at least I'll have time to enjoy it once I do get my mitts on it.

    3. Pokémon League was having a mini tournament and costume contest at my local Gamestop. I entered the tournament, but I didn't stay for the contest. There was cupcakes and pizza, and I scored some swag in addition to Pokémon Y(some cards, a badge, a poster, and a Chespin plushie).

    4. I didn't get the game because I'm low on money. (don't worry I won't e-beg) are the battle mechanics the same as the previous ones where you have more than one Pokemon battling at the same time? (I haven't seen any game play footage of X and Y)

    6. Followed coverage of the launch in New York and looked around online for the games and the red Xerneas and Yveltal 3DS XL. Looked like a good party, everyone young and old; dressed up in their gear, and there was even a couple getting engaged there. I'm quite looking forward to getting them. After I have my tuition paid, my books bought, and my computer upgraded, all bets are off. Looking forward to exploring Kalos in full 3D, customizing my character (first chance I get, I'm ditching the default outfit for something a bit more casual); and playing with Mega Evolutions of my favorites from past games. I'm glad that I won't have to pawn things and return cans like crazy like I did for Black 2 and White 2 last year.

      I don't know how many turned up exactly, but I imagine it wasn't this BIG event that he's making it out to be.

      Speaking of the money he blew on this thing, will he ever make a profit? That includes both the premiere and the minuscule of DVDs he will undoubtedly sell.

      I actually wouldn't be surprised if SOME people showed up (likely other cast members or family members [minus Buggin of course]), but even so Chris has been know to lie before (understatement, I know), so...

      @KYUKEDUKE
      I totally agree with you. He'll probably make even less on sales of his ghost movie DVD than his IG DVDs if only because his 12-year old fanbase wouldn't be as interested in ghosts as they are in video games. Pretty sad that his seemingly genuine interest in ghost hunting will suffer because of his actions elsewhere.

  16. Chris is such an asshole. I made one comment in response to someone else who said that "AVGN can fuck himself, Chris is on TV," on his fox interview. I kindly responded back saying that that wasn't true, that AVG has had clips air on CNN and he was also in the F13 documentary and the NOES documentary. I didn't say one negative thing about Chris. I even said it was impressive that he was on TV. What does the fucker do? Delete my comment! After I was that, I wrote another one that said that apparently the only comments allowed were ones that praised Chris and talked shit about AVGN. That got deleted, too. What a fucking asshole.

    2. I don't even hate the guy. Not saying I enjoy his work, but I don't have anything personal against him, just don't care for his videos. But if he's gonna be an asshole to people who don't automatically whit knight him and kiss his ass and talk shit about AVGN, then he honestly deserves the hats he gets. On a side note, what does he have against AVGN? Its not like he started a war between them and he owes his entire popularity to him.

      Delete
    3. Basically, in some of Chris' early videos he stole jokes from AVGN and a few other reviewers. When people called him out on it, he sent a private message to AVGN trying to kiss his butt, but the message was publicly posted by James' friend Mike Matei, gaining Chris even more hatred. Since then, he's had a one-sided war with them.

      Delete
    4. @GreenLantern
      For reasons why people would hate him without involving AVGN, Chris Bores went nuts with the youtube copyright system and essentially false flagged a lot of people off of youtube. Chris Bores also maintains several puppet accounts (most of which are now discarded like irategamerfanboy345) that exist only to be an asshole to other people and piss people off. With the exception of batdamn (which appears to be a really delusional white knight) all his other accounts have been traced to him including his 'mother'. As a result, people who think that Chris Bore's franchise revolves around sabotaging other people on youtube and essentially harassment wouldn't be far off considering what 99% of what Chris actually does with the time he could be using to make videos.

      Back to AVGN related reasons, Irate Gamer has yet to even admit that AVGN exists and that his work is inspired by him. Combine this with the fact that he sent a letter that essentially admitted that he was in-fact happy to rip off AVGN and we can see why Mike decided to make a private letter public. While it would take a good half of a decade for Chris Bores to stop plagarizing AVGN, it seems that Chris Bores has deluded himself into thinking that AVGN is somehow sabotaging him and that James Rolfe is directly competing with him. According to Chris Bores, AVGN lied about his review release dates and so in his deluded little mind Chris made his videos first before anyone else. Also according to Chris's mandate AVGN also apparently copied his entire Indiana Jone review. From what his 'mother' has been typing, Chris apparently thinks that AVGN is bullying him meaning that Chris is the victim despite doing absolutely nothing to indicate he is a victim and is a bullshit argument considering that AVGN doesn't even want to talk about him whereas Chris has outright attacked AVGN on suggestion from Asalieri (hmm I wonder if AVGN is leading any groups of individual to... oh wait no he's not). It has also become apparent that those who wish to support Irate Gamer should simply state that "AVGN sucks" and be completely mindless with their opinions and one-sided with their judgement (though to be fair Irate Gamer fans do compare somewhat favorably to Asa fans). AVGN fans seem to put their support where it counts in views and on the actual website.

      And as for me, I don't give a shit as long as Chris stops bullying people, or should I replace bullying with criminal harassment considering how immature he is?

    5. @ Mr.Kill Ultra:
      "Back to AVGN related reasons, Irate Gamer has yet to even admit that AVGN exists and that his work is inspired by him."

      Not to defend Bores or anything, but Chris did bring up the AVGN in his 200th video back in April 2011 (along with PlayItBogart and Armake21). As for James being his inspiration, Bores may also have brought it up in that video or in the private message he sent to James' YouTube channel, which was received by Mike Matei, back in 2007.

      Delete
    6. I meant publicly. Chris obviously didn't want to tell anyone he was inspired by AVGN hence why the message was considered scandalous since the message implied that he wanted AVGN to shut up. As for the 200th video, I forgot about that one, but to be fair it shouldn't take 4 years for you to answer a question that was there from day one. And just mentioning that he watched AVGN isn't quite as much as apologizing for flat out taking review formats, direct lines of dialogue and making china style knockoffs of AVGN's jokes. If anything his inability to show humility when it comes to AVGN is positively one of the reasons why people hate him.

    1. Well, I'm not gonna lie, even if I think the game is good (if I play it, because I don't have a Wii U), I will miss the gameplay introduced in Sonic Unleashed, because it just gave you a great sense of speed, even if it made momentum redundant (admittedly, VERY few times).

    3. I'm not sure he's going to look at another Sonic game after he got caught stealing footage for the Sonic Generations review. He may not be able to post the review to YouTube without it being flagged by Cyberman and others; but it's still really bad. I'm going to play it. I'm also wondering when this whole Skylanders craze will blow over. Now that Disney Infinity and Pokémon Rumble U have entered the playing field, I can imagine a pattern similar to what happened with the rhythm genre; where Activision went too much, too soon (looking back, I think releasing 4 Guitar Hero games and DJ Hero and Band Hero was overkill. Sure enough, they put the franchise to pasture the next year). Infinity at least has user-created content to back it up (In spite of Bores' shortsightedness, user-generated content is popular in games nowadays), and Rumble U will help show off more of the Wii U Gamepad's uses for other developers. Still, the bubble will burst sometime. Nothing can ruin a game or genre faster than saturating the market with it. It says something when even Bores' dwindling fans are getting sick of it.

    4. "Saturating the market."

      That's what crashed the industry back in the Atari days, right? Flooding the market with cookie-cutter, poorly-made products?

      Delete
    5. Exactly. The quality control is not so much an issue anymore, but lack of innovation could definitely factor in another crash. How many Call of Duty games do we need?

    6. I hate how Activision will give us, like, 6 Call of Duty games in 2 years but a Prototype 3 is out of the question.

      Delete
    7. I'm not scared of another crash. The first one was because of some incredibly stupid decisions. Besides, it only affected home console game in North America. Arcades, computer games, and games elsewhere were unaffected. The industry is far more interconnected now than ever, so I don't think much could happen.

      Since there are obviously lots of people who love CoD, I'd rather compare it to how Activision pretty much killed Guitar Hero.

      Delete
    8. Yeah only COD is getting the oversaturated market reputation. Other games that at least try such as borderlands 2, Bioshock infinite and Farcry 3 aren't getting the 'this has been done to death' complaints. As far I'm concerned, the military shooter genre might be in trouble but that until someone finds a new exciting way to stop repetitive and boring sequences. COD might crash but everything else won't and as long as PS4 and Xbox one aren't betting entirely on a military generic FPS killer app they'll be okay though somewhat underwhelming.

In the first half of October, James has put out MORE than one clear, informative, entertaining video per DAY, and he's going for the rest of the month while simultaneously completing a feature film that admits it's fiction, being a husband and father, and presumably he's got to eat some time. The only apt comparisons to Bores are superficial ones, i.e. they're both irked electronic game reviewers. Seems a shame to mention both in one sentence.

  23. One thing I don't get is, why is a guy in his mid-30s doing videos about toys? I get doing videos about nostalgic stuff, I have no problems with that, and I have no problems with a grown man doing videos about video games. But to me it's just really, really weird to see him doing videos about the Skylanders stuff. I know he throws in stuff about it being "to help parents" but to me it looks like a 30 something year old guy who likes to play with toys.

    I myself am in my mid 30s now, and like I said I still enjoy video games and all that, but toys? Am I being too harsh?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah that's a bit too harsh. If anything being an adult means that you don't give a shit about what others think about what you do in private (especially if it doesn't really harm other people). That's part of the reason why the brony movement is so strong because people are sick and tired of society deciding what they can and can't like based on things like age and gender (that and apparently the show is good or something, I'd rather play games then watch TV). There are plenty of toy collectors in their mid 30s doing youtube videos about toys (especially transformers). That said it is quite wrong for Chris Bores to be talking about Skylanders so damn much when its clear that he isn't much of a toy collector nor is he much of a video game's expert.

      Delete
    2. Mike Mozart is older than 30 and he talks about toys all the time. The difference is that he's entertaining.
      There's also TJ Omega, who is probably younger than 30 but has an entire series talking about Transformers toys.
      And Vangelus, who is clearly an adult talking about action figures.

      The reason we fault Bores for Skylanders is A. Nobody cares. B. The fans are sick of it. C. He needs to stop filling his channel with these videos. D. There are other, better games worth talking about. E. It's just annoying.

      I think that's the problem everybody has with Chris and Skylanders. The reviews are not very interesting, not very informative and not much more than "look at what toys I have". Which in all honesty is kinda like how he does his neo reviews, since he of the modern games he plays, none of them have been played to the finish. And he doesn't even try to do the Angry Joe excuse of not showing off spoilers.

    Compare to somebody like Linkara or Spoony, who not only take fan demands and requests (Linkara finally caving and doing One More Day, Spoony doing VCR Wrestlemania and VCR Golf because his fans wanted him to) but also KNKOW their fanbases. Spoony has admitted to knowing how insane his fanbase is but loving them anyway (if memory serves).
