IG Game Update: It's Gone!

In a (not-so) surprising turn of events, the Irate Gamer Game has completely disappeared from the iOS store. Searching "TIGG" or "Irate Gamer" gives you different results, and none of them are the game.
Last week, the Lite (free) version disappeared from the store, and now the Full (paid) version is gone too. Why is this?
I'd like to thank Eric Neuman for bringing this up.

Possibilities for the game's removal:

1. Quality.
Despite the iOS store heavily invoking Sturgeon's law, Apple does remove poor quality apps. It's very likely that they removed the game for being crap.
2. Copyright infringement
It was a reskin of Commander Cool, and I did not see the company behind the engine/assets credited for it. It would be like using the Unreal engine and not crediting Epic for it.
3. Chris wanted it gone
Despite being proud of the game (so he claims), Chris saw that the game really was terrible. So he told the folks at Mad Media Labs to take it down.
4. Mad Media Labs wanted it gone
Realizing that this basically kisses their careers goodbye, Mad Media took the game down.
5. No money coming in.
Keep in mind, the game launched at $3.99, and kept going lower and lower until it was only 99 cents (the lowest you can go on the iOS Store without being free). Even with all the comments on IG's video saying they were going to get it, it probably wasn't enough.

Well, whatever the reason, I think we can all agree this was a silly little chapter of the Irate Gamer's existence. Three years of "development", only three months on the iOS store. Every player involved lost in some way.
"Just like Angry Birds" Whatever you say Chris, whatever you say.

  1. All that hullabaloo and fanfare for a crappy game that didn't even stay on the App Store for three months... Boy Chris, that was some time well spent!

  2. Actually, the lowest it can go without being free is 69 cents. (when it comes to music that is)

  3. Also, since most everyone will likely move from the comments of the last post to this one, this was the most recent thing from there so we can continue the conversation. Dynamite Ninja posted it there, so give credit to him for copy-pasta-ing it to begin with. Chris had this to say on the Buggin account:

    "To all the friends of the IrateGamer: Please be aware that Dynamite Ninja, MrKillUltra, are taking quotes from me, Ladybuggin777, and Jabba D'Fatski, and posting them on the IG stillsucks wiki pages and the IG sucks blog and claiming that it Chris Bores' quotes. Christopher has no knowledge of any of these said quotes and/or of Dynamite Ninja or MrKillUltra. This is all fraud and deception on their part. All quotes are property of Ladybuggin and Jabba NOT Chris Bores aka The Irate Gamer. This is an illegal act and can be tried in a court of law for defamation of character and slander, libel. Please be advised that Chris Bores is in no way involved in the wrong doings of Dynamite Ninja and MrKillUltra.
    Thank you, sincerly, Ladybuggin777 ~"

    I guess it never occurred to Chris "Norman" Bores that just because you delete an offensive comment you made off the Internet and someone else happened to save it and post it elsewhere doesn't mean it never existed.

    Also, am I the only one who noticed the "me, Ladybuggin777, and Jabba D'Fatski", and still ends his silly comment with "sincerly, Ladybuggin777"? Looks like someone got so carried away that they forgot that they were trying to hide their sock puppet.

    1. Argh damn I need to move my comment over:

      There's no law against against the misrepresentation of a fictional character and as such there's no violation being committed here. In addition no lawsuits can be made as the character was named after the author and since there is reasonable doubt either which way and to whom I am referring to when I say "Chris Bores you are fucking idiot who has multiple personality disorder" its impossible for the court to rule whether I am referring to the individual or the character either way I'm in protection of freedom of speech as the statement is based on truth and current events and is not made with the intention to intimidate or to make a long run on sentence. You cannot possibly pursue the legal route as you cannot even get your story straight Mr.'Me-Chris-Bores-sincerely-Ladybuggin777''

      @Micharion
      It is illegal to state that you know the law and attempt to assist others in the legal process when you not certified to be a lawyer (or are disbarred). Being ignorant of the law is not illegal however and violations of laws you are ignorant of will be counted against you as you are expected as a citizen to be aware of the law if you aren't already.

      In addition, @Xcom enemy within
      I LOVE MEC SPAM! Punching exalt soldiers through walls is hilarious. The wrestling animation that plays when a Mec melees a berserker is hilarious! Setting 6 chrysalid on fire with the flame thrower is hilarious! I'm very close to playing a classic difficulty game where I don't lose a single country and its all thanks to these lightning bruisers!
      (also seeing a cyberdisk flip through the air from a punch and then exploding on impact is also a laughter inducing sight!)

      Their only downside is that X-com's plot is based on psionic troopers so machinzing people is kinda counter-intuitive.

    4. "Skyrunner14 Wrote: "I guess it never occurred to Chris "Norman" Bores that just because you delete an offensive comment you made off the internet and someone else happened to save it and posts it elsewhere doesn't mean it never existed."
      Don't you think, Skyrunner, you should have directed this comment to MrKillUltra instead? KillUltra's actions fit your comment perfectly. More so than Ladybuggin's (Who skyrunner is claiming to be Chris Bores) He also calls Chris Bores "Norman" in refererence to Norman Bates, claiming Chris Bores is pretending to be his own mother under the username of Ladybuggin777. (Skyrunner is ALSO libel for slander and defemation of character) Didn't MrKillUltra delete his posts where he called Chris Bores a faggot instead of apologizing for his homophobic slur and Jabba posted it elsewhere?
      How ironic is your slanderous statement, Skyrunner ~ "

      uh wait there's something weird:

      "More so than Ladybuggin's (Who skyrunner is claiming to be Chris Bores)"

      " claiming Chris Bores is pretending to be his own mother under the username of Ladybuggin777"

      Why buggin is talking in third person?

      Delete
    5. " Didn't MrKillUltra delete his posts"

      I did not. Egon Eagle, the wiki admin stated it was not relevant to the page so I moved it to my profile page. You can see it right there.

      Delete
    6. Genesect brings up a good point, Chris. Why ARE you talking in the third person if you're supposed to be "Buggin"? Is that mask of lies you've been hiding behind all these years starting to finally crack? Do you even care about hiding your identity anymore, or has it finally set in that you're not fooling anyone?

      Also, I like how you just clump all of us together as you do. The thing is, IG Sucks and the ironically-named (by the way, Chris, the way I'm using the word "ironic" is correct. The way you used it is incorrect) Batdan Sucks are the only places I actually frequent. I've never been to the wiki, just like I never visit either yours or "Buggin's" channels. That said, how do you expect me to know anything about what you're trying to lie about?

      Even if I don't go to that site, I'm more prone to believe Ultra than the pathetic 30-year-old pretending to be his 50-year-old mother. And honestly, how many times do we have to break this to you before it sinks in? Your IP address was revealed and linked to both of your accounts. We know it's you.

      One last thing, your threats of legal action are about as empty as your head. Aside from the points Ultra brought up (you know, the whole "Buggin is a fictional character" thing), there are two things wrong with your plan. One, you would have to provide proof you are who you say you are, and such info would likely be made public, revealing your sockpuppet status more than it already has been. Two, this "defamation" as you call it is inapplicable if the things being said about you are true. Anyone with a brain and the will to look into your past of lies and slander towards others will realize this in a millisecond.

      tl;dr version: You are a terrible person, a terrible liar, and you are full of crap.

    7. I'm moving this reply over, since this is the newest post.

      @MrKillUltra

      All of that was found just doing a google search of Batdanmn. When you got to the last page and click to include all omissions, go to page 6 and there's a link to a video that shows some of the people he's trolled.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yn2EO5TNsRQ

      In the description, the guy clearly states that this guy trolled the other guys and is a fanboy of Batdanmn. Given the fact that we know Batdanmn is someone who impersonates others, enjoys editing wikis, and even went and edited one of the wikis of the people listed in the description of the video, oh and also this.

      http://pooppedia.wikia.com/wiki/Doodledoug3212

      Scroll down and look at the comments. Not only will you see the comment made by a guy that he betrayed, but the comment itself shows even then he was impersonating people, specifically the guy's mom.

      If there's anymore that I find, I'll post it.

      Delete
    8. Well here is something to consider of Constantin abandoning what he did. Remember that list of people he thought he owned that he had? I can't seem to find it, it seems to have disappeared.

    9. "Skyrunner14 Wrote: "You are a terrible person, a terrible liar, and you are full of crap."
      Right back at you, Skyrunner, ten fold. Since the shoe fits, wear it! :D"

      did she even read the whole thing?

      Delete
    10. When does Chris ever take any kind of criticism, let alone seriously? I'm going to hazard a guess the massive wall of text was too much for him to comprehend... after all the guy can hardly type, what's to say he can read either?

      Delete
    11. Even after finding all of that, there is one thing that I'm seeing that does make it look like you might have a point about what you've been saying MrKillUltra.

      I'm guessing by now, most people have seen the guy impersonating BatDan now, and seen his page. Thing is, look at every single comment he's making. They're all edited. As if he's trying to hide something, like, oh I don't know, horrible spelling, which as has been noted before, batdanmn didn't really have all that great spelling to begin with.

      It doesn't really prove either way whether he is or isn't Chris or batdanmn, but something that I've noticed. Which also begs the question, if you have to go back and edit every single one of your comments, then doesn't that defeat the purpose of trying to make yourself sound smarter?

      Delete
    12. You know I feel the sudden need to prove buggin is more of a hypocrite than she lets on. At one time she agreed with Jonathan that and this is for emphasis, ALL bronies are delusional and that dynamite is sick for something to do with bronies that buggin most likely cannot back up. Here is the thing though first krataskull is is almost as much a pissant as ben has an avatar of the purple pony from MLP but it is how she is on it that brings up questions. I can't really say about what it looks like since it is kind of uncomfortable to me.

      Delete
    13. So, LadyBuggin had this to say about BatDan.


      "Judging by his failed stalking " IG Revelations", we can count out his carreer as a private detective and from what I know, he still lives at home with his mommy. She's probably sick to death of him moochie off her, him being 23 years old, with no success in life to speak of. I'm sure being the author of a "Hate Speech Blog" is not so good on a resume. Tracee will be stuck with Daniel for years to come! But then again she raised him. so what's that say about her?"

      What does it say about your mother, Chris, when you go around being a hypocritical piece of shit that tells Asa, "I'm a Christian", and then says "MrsKillUltra is having a melt down because I insulted his butt buddy, batdannight." Hate to break it to you, but Christians don't do that. Also, what does it say about your mom, in that she couldn't teach you to take constructive criticism, didn't teach you that impersonating someone is illegal, that harassing people just for having a different opinion over you, stealing other people's work, and lying to both your friends and fans, as well as anyone else who'll listen.

      Then again, it makes sense that you've surrounded yourself with the people that you have. They all are like you in some way, shape, or form. That old saying, "The company you keep says a lot about", has never had any truer meaning the it does with you.

      Delete
    14. "The company you keep says a lot about you"*

      Also, when reading the first post of this, Buggin says Chris has no knowledge of MrKillUltra or DynamiteNinja. This is obviously a lie, as I've seen both mentioned numerous times in the comment section on Chris's videos.

      I'm guessing this is one more lie we can add to the pile.

    15. Funny how the 30 year old guy pretending to be his 50 year old mother is trying to discredit someone younger than him. I'm cracking up here.

      Because fantasizing about other people and their lives is the same as pwning them or actually exposing flaws in their character (P.S no its not the same). Seriously Chris this has gone way too far, you're becoming utterly complacent in believing lies you made up without bothering to check if they even have evidence to back them up. I mean you did this in the contra review and many other reviews where you deluded yourself into believing something that was not true. In fact I'm actually sure that Batdan could write this 'hate blog' on his resume as it shows:
      1. He is capable of writing about current events on a timely schedule (i.e Batdan is more than capable of writing about Irate Gamer's failures on time)
      2. He knows very well what it takes to do a review and especially how to do a video review
      3. He has the capacity to do research and critical analysis
      4. He can persevere in the face of incredible stupidity and hostility from his opposition
      5. What exactly about this blog says would disqualify Batdan from a Job? He's not hate mongering and it only takes a short look at the articles to show that its a public opinion piece. Disqualifying Batdan for employment over this is against freedom of speech and freedom of association = Court Case that batdan will win should he care enough to sue.

      Once again Chris you are making things up and pretending there are relations where none exists. Why don't you look up the definition of hate speech before you call this a hate blog? The fact you are lying about us and telling others we're minorities who have no right to exist is in fact hate speech. But I'm not surprised considering you don't care about other people or their rights.

  5. Strangely, the video Bores made promoting the game is still up. He hasn't even made either a post on his site or a video explaining that it was taken down. Though, to be fair, it's going to be quite a difficult task for him to save face after this whole debacle.

  10. I suspected as much. I used to have a Motorola Atrix, but I'm considering getting an iPhone; since I'm looking into getting a new smartphone and changing carriers (I just have a Tracfone right now. It's fine for making calls and texting, but I miss my web browsing and apps). On my Atrix, I only paid $2 for my X-Men app and $3 for my Sonic 4 Episode 1 app. When your game is so bad that you can't even give it away (I'd probably take the 69 cents and see what songs I can get for that change); you know Chris has failed. So, looks like I can add the failure of TIGG to my worst moments of this year. Now, I have some studying to do, and I'm in the the middle of a marathon Pokémon Best Wishes, The Clone Wars, and Teen Titans Go, and I believe the Cubone segment of Origins is on Pokémon TV now. I can probably get caught up on Sleepy Hollow, Agents of SHIELD, and Kill la Kill tomorrow. I think I'm also going to try starting Magi: Labyrinth of Magic; hopefully I'll like it better than some other things I've seen (I hated Steven Universe after watching it, and Future Diary felt so nihilistic and confusing that I probably won't willingly watch it again without compensation). As for games; I think I'll get Zelda: A Link Between Worlds when it comes out, and maybe some place that has a buy one, get one offer or a good Cyber Monday deal (Pokémon X and Sonic Lost Worlds are also high priority). I was reasonably quick to adapt to the changing cell phone landscape, but I can only afford to buy so many games and consoles in a given year. I've also been dabbling with my emulators to see which retro games I will be playing. Just thought I'd get that off my chest. See you around, Dan.

The website is full of mystic bullshit like "Starseeds", and all sorts of "conspiracies" and "mythical creatures" and oh dear lord the bullshit is overflowing. No wonder Chris listens to Alex Jones.

      Well like many overly egotistical conspiracy theorist, Chris has been drawn in hook line and sinker into exposing himself and accepting ridiculously shitty beliefs. A famous philosopher once said that the more shitty beliefs you accept, the more you compromise yourself and make it easier for you to accept even stupider beliefs. Considering that Chris is dumb enough to believe his own theories about other games (contra) I'm actually surprised to know that he is this dumb and not faking it.

    4. Mad Media's other game "Spinning Streak" has NOT been removed from the iTunes store. That was uploaded in May of 2010, so they still have six months before their "contract" is up for renewal.

      Unfortunately it's really easy to resubmit an app and have it accepted again, so chances are it will be back in the iTunes store very soon.

Chris is not that bad a person. yes he's full of himself, but what he isn't is evil. save that animosity for serial killers, rapists, child molesters, etc.

    4. I think you guys are overreacting. He isn't wishing harm on Bores. He just wants to see an IG game with Angry Birds-like violence.

      Angry birds violence, even when bombs/explosions are involved, is very tame.

      The official game has Bores being shot by lasers and stepping on mines, resulting in his blood being splattered across the screen.

    5. @Everyone in this chain of comments
      Yeah I agree with Shaolin Dave. I would have wrote something earlier but I had a midterm. Wishing for someone to be in a parody or to be represented in a parody is different from wanting the person dead. I mean there's plenty of parodies where a celebrity dies but that's not the writer's evil desire to kill that person but rather just the funniest way they could end that skit. Granted there is a line between making a parody and fantasizing about murder but WQtosh imagined is a cartoonist parody where Chris Bore's literally 'bombs'.

      That said I imagine a parody game just like angry birds with Chris Bores heads trying to take out AVGN heads but only its unwinnable as the slingshot is replaced with people telling you to get your act together. You can actually fire the slingshot but only after you select a series of conversation options in which you deny everything ever exists in favor of clearly escapist and cowardly conclusions about yourself. At which point you can fire a Chris Bores head every 6 months but regardless of angle or velocity you cannot even damage an AVGN head. In order to shorten the timer you can write encouraging messages as Ladybuggin777 or any alt of batdamn to yourself (but batdamn may not be available due to constant youtube violations).

      Delete
    6. I can see why some of you are thinking that, but like Shaolin Dave said, I'm not wishing any REAL harm on Bores. It's just a parody/joke type thing I has stuck in my head after Bores said his game was "just like Angry Birds". My comment wasn't meant to be taken too seriously, but again, I understand WHY it can be taken that way.

      Now for wishing that Bores could get his act together and stop with the sockpuppet accounts and whatnot, on the other hand...

      Delete
    7. I think the game I imagined would be very philosophical and artsy, since it is true to life.

      Delete
    8. In addition should you fire the slingshot in the opposite direction you'll hear people be surprised. If you continue to fire the slingshot away from the AVGN heads and in the opposite direction, a crowd will then begin cheering. At this point the player must still wait 6 in-game months to fire the slingshot... should they write messages as ladybuggin or batdamn, the crowd will go silent and the player will have to fire without writing messages in order to get the crowd cheering again. As the player continues to fire the slingshot in the opposite direction and without writing messages, the in-game delay between shots will decrease and the crowd will cheer louder each time you fire in the opposite direction. Should the player continue doing this Ronnie the skeleton will show up and congratulate you on a successful resurrection and you will no longer be able to write messages as Ladybuggin or Batdamn to yourself as you no longer need them. The AVGN heads will disappear and a proper game of Angry Birds with Chris Bore head projectiles will begin.

  17. Oh, and by the way, there's a new AVGN video up on Cinnemassacre. He reviews his games(yes Chris, games, as in more than one, all of which except one was released before your shitty game). I personally thought it was pretty decent, and definitely better than Chris's review of his own game. Then again, just about any video is better than Chris's videos.

Of course, this is just a lie, as anyone can actually read the link that Shaolin Dave posted, yes the apps would be removed from the store, but people who have already downloaded the apps, would still be able to use them. The fact that I downloaded the lite version of the game and it disappeared, points to the fact that it wasn't the contract.

  19. I wonder if the failure of TIGG could be at the top of the worst moments list for 2013, in BatDan's opinion?

    BTW, what do you think were the worst moments of 2007 and 2008, Dan?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The #1 spot? That's gonna depend on Dan's scoring system for the list. Pursuit of the Paranormal also gets huge points on all possible major scoring lines- foisting a piece of crap on the public, concurrent hubris and dishonesty while promoting the thing, and of course the sad, crashing failure of the product. The redesign of theirategamer.com was also pretty bad but fairly benign in comparison.

      But believe it or not, I think it's faintly possible for Chris to give us a dark-horse winner at the end of the year: if his storyline-concluding review goes online before New Year's, it will not only mark his longest-running misadventure, it might- just might- top his previous failures in 2013. The flop sweat of the preceding months may just fuel him into a state of desperation we've never seen before.

      Echoing the above conversation, I also don't wish for real violence to befall Bores, and it would be similarly malicious to actively wish for an online meltdown. I merely raise it as a possibility, and one that Bores is in control of.

      Delete
    2. I think #1 would be the revelation that Chris Bores is freakin Ladybuggin777. That means from day one, Chris had no intention of taking his franchise past 'piss poor excuse to troll people'. Its one thing to make shitty things it another thing to bully people because you can't find anything better to do.

    3. Hilariously enough just when I had watched 3/4 of the way through the episode my computer had BSOD just when I was about to write "nope I was wrong, episode doesn't suck". No idea why I got a worker invalid error.

      My train of thought here is that the previous episodes don't show effort. The previous aliens episode was just an advertisement for monster madness and his complains for that episode were really really bland especially when a 5 year old can notice the timer flashes between time left and prisoners left to rescue. Toxic crusaders was just... uh yeah. Bill and Ted review was just boring. In short I had a high suspicion that AVGN would do something stupid and just make a review that essentially a thinly veiled advertisement for his games. Considering that the actually review plays the fucking games and is actually humorous and makes light of what's he doing, I can safely say I was wrong... no wait FUCKING wrong.

      Delete
    4. I thought Bill and Ted was decent enough, and the Tiger review was both unexpected and surprisingly thorough considering the material he had to work with. I think Atari Sports is still my favorite episode since he returned, with Ghosts N' Goblins as a close second.

      Overall, it seems that he's at a point where he's struggling to find the right balance between his old material and fresh content. He's been a bit hit and miss lately, but I'd say it's too early to declare that AVGN has jumped the shark. I'm curious to see if he'll be able to find a winning formula sometime after the movie is finally out.

      Delete
    5. I'm pretty sure the guy's still doing final touches on his movie, so with that in the background of course he's not going to be 100% on his a-game. I'm thinking he'll start to get back on top of things once the movie is done and released.

      Not to say I dislike the recent episodes, they're great! Especially this newest one, I really enjoyed it! It was interesting seeing his/the Nerd's responses to the many games starring none other than him! I pretty much lost it at the scene where he came across the infamous Super Pitfall trap room.

    Regarding the "spiritual sensitive" in Haunted Investigators episode #2 named Billie, has it been noted before that Linda's nickname is in fact Billie? http://www.sanduskyregister.com/obituary/14661

    2. There's a lot of girls names that are very similar to boys names, some have died off over the years. In middle school I knew a "Billie", she was named after her grandmother if I remember correctly. I think her sister's name was "Logan". My grandmother's name was "Bobbye". Also, "Kelly" and "Ashley" can be boys names (though most "Ashleys" prefer to be called "Ashe"). I went to basic training with a man named "Tracey". As odd and uncommon as that must be, a few weeks after basic I saw a news report talking about a criminal with both the same first and last name as him (before anyone ask, no it wasn't the same person).

      Any interest I had in the Xbox 720 (I refuse to call it "One") died when I heard about the DRM/always online mumbo-jumbo. I'm well aware that Microsoft reversed those decisions, but the fact that they even THOUGHT those were good ideas in the first place is what takes away any respect I had towards this system.

      Aside from that, none of the launch titles tickle my fancy (same goes for PS4).

    On our favorite impersonator's page:"This isn't the first time that Fatman Impersonator Jdupkoski has been banned. :D

    http://www.gamefaqs.com/users/jdupkoski/boards

    Board User Level: -2: Banned User has been banned from posting messages for one or more Terms of Service violations.

    So, according to Chris, his friend is weak minded. Oh, and also, by the way, in the comment section of the videos, it clearly show the owner of the video leaving replies to you while you were impersonating me.

  30. Has it occurred to anybody else that Chris Bores had some kind of Wayne's World fantasy?

    I mean, look at his old road trip videos. They are a half-assed copy of the blue screen sequence from the first Wayne's World movie: http://youtu.be/MQEwJdhfddk

    I honestly believe that Chris was thinking some network would see his road trip videos and fork over a ton of cash for him to develop a series about it.

    That doesn't work so then Chris copies other successful ideas at the time- ghost hunting and AVGN specifically. Due to controversy, Irate Gamer is the thing that brings him a bit of fame (infamy?) and he sticks with that until his ratings begin to drop so he resurrects the ghost hunting thing and emptying his bank account in a desperate bid to attract an investor.

    In some ways I feel kind of sorry for Chris Bores but he reaps what he sows.

    Also, I'm calling it now. Bores makes a new video and it comes either right before Thanksgiving or right after Thanksgiving. Also I'm calling that when the video is uploaded, Buggin's computer problems will mysteriously vanish and be solved and will be back.

    1. On the subject of that article, it sucks that parents are bullying the teachers for simply raising legitimate concerns instead of holding themselves and their children accountable.
      I wonder if any of the students get caught plagiarizing their schoolwork, will the parents blame the children or the teacher?

      Delete
    2. Well there is one small detail bores neglects to mention. The teacher actually over-stepped their boundaries when they rather publicly did that. If they had a problem they should have done it privately instead of doing the equivalent of slut shaming. Not to mention there are several reasons for why a kid would be dirty only some of which is parental neglect. The problem with bores and a lot of other people is they butt into things without knowing the full story and make assumptions.

      Delete
    3. Oh god, that hurt to read.

      Firstly, there's the obvious matter that a website devoted to gaming is attempting to deliver social commentary in the first place. It's one thing to discuss something related to video games (a subject such as whether video games are harmful to children is a good example), but this is out of place.
      Also, if you're going to write an article, have standards. Referring to a person as a "white trash moron" and an "inbred idiot" can very quickly turn a reader off.
      And I absolutely agree with Shaolin Dave, there are times when the parent and/or student needs to be held accountable. If a student's odor and appearance is going to be a disruption, it needs to be addressed. Especially when it significantly diverges from merely "playground dirty".

    4. I think its because it almost 2014 that Chris Bores feels the need to show what terrible ethics he has.

      Delete
    5. Yes of course there are times when the parent and/or student needs to be held responsible but the point I was getting at is the teacher was in the wrong sending a note with the kids. If there is a problem the teacher should have went to the principal about it first and they would have likely called the parents and they would have talked about it privately. In effect the teacher aired out dirty laundry that they really should not have.

      Delete
    6. I believe that even attempting to have a stance other than neutral would be immoral here. We simply do not know the entire story and the evidence is not clear cut or well known. If it was like say Sexual Assault where its clear who is in the wrong then a slanted stance would be a appropriate.

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/25/pre-k-smelly-kids-note_n_4338734.html

      Looking at this article, it was done in private; in the form of a letter to the parents which must be signed. As someone who had a person who smelled like shit in front of me during a university lecture, I can safely say that someone who smells like crap can be a major distraction in a class setting. In Pre-kindergarden this is a sign that the child may have health issues. And the teacher only got a slap on the wrist :"the veteran teacher is being barred from sending letters to parents without the principal’s approval".

      The parents are just complaining that the teacher didn't tell them in person about the problem, which while a silly concern, shows that the parents would like direct approaches and disapprove of in-direct methods as they have less control over those.

      Delete
    7. Yeah, and this little escapade by bores has shown that both him and his mother have very low ethics what with bores directly insulting one of the parents and buggin making a ridiculous claim against me. Of course huffington post very rarely gets the full story most news don't. I really hate that about news they try to beat everyone to what they consider major news which almost always leaves out details. Unfortunately a completely unbiased news source is a pipe dream.

    9. @Mr.KillUltra

      To be fair, how could one approach a parent in person and bring up issues of cleanliness without offending the parent. That's not to say that all parents would be so touchy, but one has to bare in mind the protective nature of a parent in both the child and their type of upbringing. To them, it could be seen as a critique on their own parenting skills. Considering that this is America, the country where we are so overprivileged that we'll find something petty to bitch about (myself included), it's a strong possiblity.

      Delete
    10. @Vince
      The problem is more along the lines of timing. Imagine if you are a parent and your child gets injured in class. Do you want to receive information concerning his/her injuries immediately? Or after your son/daughter has come home (and probably is traumatized since you weren't there to help them)? The problem with these articles is that there's no surefire way to know to what extent these parents are protesting. For all we know the parents could have just made a single phone call to the principle asking to receive a phone call next time and the media could write it off as them trying to get the teacher fired. The fact of the matter is, if there is something wrong that will affect your child and prevent them from having a normal class session, you will probably want to be notified immediately.

      Most parents get very pissed when they lose control over their child. Many parents don't want to become irrelevant. The child could have simply pooped in his pants (the child is pre-K) and there's no reason to suggest that the parents are doing things like forgetting to regularly bathe the child. When you as a parent are not there during the moment your child is having a major problem (in this case, being smelly and probably being excluded from class), you symbolize to your child that you're not really important in their lives. And that is a nightmare scenario many parents want to avoid.

      In short: I don't see this as the parents being annoyed that their parenting is being called into question. Your parenting will always be called into question; you dropped off your child at a public school and you have no idea if you can trust the staff there or the other students to behave properly to your child. I just think that based on the only official comment from the parents that is shown, that the parents are pissed from a lack of immediate communication.

    5. I can see why people are really pissed at Brian's death. For one people are expecting the writers to restore the characters, not salvage them by killing them off. Secondly, part of the reason why Brian giving an 'atheist' speech was poorly received is because its so out of character for him as he is supposed to be the voice of reason. Going nuts and having people hate him doesn't change anything and this is the time more than ever to either have character development where Brian realizes he likes giving destructive advice or a return to form where Brian understands what went wrong. Killing him deprives both those moments and essentially just lets Brian Karma Houdini away from all his author avatar and dumbass moments. At least peter had an episode where he was diagnosed as retarded and after that episode peter went nuts on the stupid and reckless antics. Granted I hate peter more because it was funnier when he was misguided and not when he was behaving like an escaped mental patient with rage issues. Oh well I'm sure the fans have better reasons as to why they want Brian back and why they didn't start a petition like "stop flanderizing our favorite comedy characters!"

    1. I guess he doesn't realize that IP addresses aren't tied to computers and are instead tied to wireless access points. In other words, short of moving somewhere else, he can go through as many computers as he wants, but it won't do him any good. If someone were to fool him and track his IP address again, it'd be the same address, same location.

      In other words, good job not understanding how technology works. To quote your own silly sentence ender, Chris, ;) ~

  42. I know exactly what will happen with Brian's stupid death on Family Guy. On the Christmas episode Stewie will meet a future Stewie and finding out Brian is dead he will stop the death of Brian. With the predictability of Family guy so far, I am probably right.

    1. In all honesty, I can guess that Brian will eventually come back. I just don't see him staying away for long.

      However, I'd like to point out something that I think a lot of people have overlooked. If you remember way back when, when they made the episodes about Stewie going forward in time with his older self, they reveal that Brian actually dies from eating some chocolate out of the trash. So I don't see this being the last time we see him.

      I could maybe see them doing something like this in order to bring him back, since the time machine is destroyed and all. But that's just my take on it.

      Delete
    2. while that theory is clever, its clear that family guy has a negative continuity; I mean Meg apparently has 3 nipples (she only has two in the one where its a plot point) and Brian has been neutered (yet has children and has repeatedly expressed desires for sex).

      Delete
    3. Also, the timeline where Brian died from eating chocolate was erased when Stewie changed things.

  43. Hey BatDan, are you ever going to do another redux recap? It's been a whole year since the last one on IG's Neo review of Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law.
    Will we ever see a redux recap of IG's review of Home Improvement for the SNES?

    3. Well, Batdan did say that he will need a LOT of motivation before he ever gets around to doing his redux recap on Home Improvement.

      In fact, what I want to know from Batdan is if the Home Improvement game is really THAT bad as everyone says it is.

    4. I'd say the jontron review on home improvement practically sums the game up. As to whether it sucks, well that depends... do you like scavenger hunt platformers?

    5. Yes, especially ones that do not hold your hand.

    6. My favorite scavenger hunt game was Jurassic Park 2 on the genesis though admittedly it isn't a platformer and it was an incredibly easy game (i.e just use the dart gun).

      Keep in mind those are my favorite movies in blockbuster terms. I'm not counting movies like Gravity or Captain Phillips (Although Captain Phillips is one of my absolute favorites of the year.)

  45. Saw this posted on Bores account:"I think it's totally hilarious that since the IG sucks bloggers can't get a rise out of me they think it really angers me when they call me Chris aka The Irate Gamer, when in fact I'm Ladybuggin, Chris' mom. Sorry failed trolls it only makes me lol cause you should know by now," you can't hurt steel!" ~"

    Apparently, Chris has forgotten the replies on the review for his game, the reply to TheArchfiend, and the fact that he got caught when someone tracked his IP address.

    So I guess he still intends on trying to keep up the failed charade, even though he's been caught now numerous times. Sorry Chris, the only fail troll here is you and it's basically making everyone lol at you even more so than usual.

  47. Off-topic, but what do people think about the new Nostalgia Critic reviews? I think his commentaries that he releases every other week between his reviews are fine, but I think he goes WAAAAAAAAAY overboard with the reviews now. I was fine with the reviews being 20-30 minutes in length and I thought even that was long enough. Now every review he does is at least 45 minutes long (his Man of Steel review is over 70 minutes!). The reason why is because he pads his reviews with these random skits with the new cast members he uses in every review now. Granted, I'm sure Doug really enjoys and has a lot of fun filming these filler scenes and I'm sure there are many out there who enjoy them, but couldn't Doug have made his own separate series with these scenes? Why do they have to be in the NC reviews? Hell, even the latest Nostalgic Commercials episode had them in it! Filler scenes are fine, especially when they have relevance to the plot, but it has become very difficult just to watch episodes anymore considering how long they have become.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The whole show has been going downhill lately. Most of the jokes in the show aren't that funny anyway and the skits with the demo reel crew are near Family Guy bad.
      His recent Man Of Steel review was unbearably long.

      Delete
    2. I find the reviews are really good but I would like to note that the Man of Steel review is only actually 40 minutes, the rest of it is a plug for another web show. I find the filler scenes to be important for illustrating the contrast in what's wrong with the source material (i.e in the 'its a rape whistle' PSA, the resulting filler scene illustrates what's so awkward about telling someone about a tragedy that could happen to you in an otherwise upbeat moment). I get that some people don't want to see these guys because they drag out the review and point out what was already pointed out, but I think the reviews would be too short and boring if they didn't do skits.

      Delete
    3. There's been a few small skits I've found in reviews that I've liked. When Dr. Insano was a very minor character I found him funny. For the most part, I really think they're unnecessary or sometimes counterproductive.
      Also 20 minutes is plenty of time for just about any review. Less is more.

      Delete
    4. You know, I've found that the episodes have been hit or miss for me since his return. Some have me laughing the whole time, some don't. I though the worse though was AI. He went overboard with that. But Idk. I think the skits work. Although I thought they really picked on Linkara in their Turbo commentary. It was almost downright mean. Although the Superman is batman song is hands down accurate. I'm glad someone else sees the road superhero movies are going down. I said since The Dark Knight came out that studios would make every superhero Batman cuz Batman makes money...

      Delete
    5. I believe that Doug wants to do the crazy skits above all else and that was one of the main reasons why he decided to retire the NC character in the first place - so he could have more time to do that. The fans however overwhelmingly demanded NC's return, and this is how he compromised.

      Delete
    6. I really hate ths skits because they so closely and almost invariably follow some iteration of "Wouldn't it be funny if/Its almost as if x, y, z." The punchline is telegraphed, we all know whats coming, its hackish and dull as well as often interminably drawn out. They do spoil the reviews in my opinion, at least in terms of flow compared to the pre-relaunch days.

      I guess at least he's not shrieking hysterically, rolling around on the floor and screaming about how he's 'fucking the DVD!!!!!' again yet. That remains Doug's absolute nadir.

  52. You know I think I found out what was just plain wrong about people claiming that nintendo is sending copyright claims. They wouldn't need to if they did plan to get the ad money. You see a content id match and a copyright strike are two very different things. An account could have many content id matches and keep on going. While with copyright strikes you are playing baseball. Not to mention the only thing a content id match does that is close to a copyright strike is the video being blocked which even then isn't that close.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually let's plays and even tournaments have gotten Nintendo copyright claims according to reddit. However you are right as content Id matches are considered fallible and whereas copyright strikes are reviewed by admins. It doesn't change the fact that the process to get either a copyright claim or a content id match fixed is a massive process requiring people to actually do their job.

      https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2814000?hl=en

      In short: Nintendo didn't make the claim, but Nintendo automated guns did and people are pissed and unwilling to cover Nintendo related products until they get their security turrets to stop shooting authorized personnel.

      Delete
    2. Well that leads into another thing I have been thinking about. In this case a boycott is absolutely useless since what is there to stop another company from pulling the same thing. No what needs to be done is to both have google change how the copyright claims are done and to revise copyright laws since the main part of them is more than a little out of date.

      Delete
    3. Two things that may be wrong with that
      1. Nintendo still has access to their bot and they have the tools to make it so it won't shoot authorized people in the face. All they have to do is carefully pick and choose what sets it off. Setting it so that trailer material,as in the only footage that describes the game, sets off the guns on the content ID bot was a poor move and its thoughtlessness that makes a boycott necessary. The objective is to get the company to use its brain next time it wants to play 'protect the franchise' on youtube.
      2. Google isn't gonna change anything. Youtube got bought out by google and its become increasingly clear that their staff is incapable of coding youtube or even understanding how the damn thing works. Problems like not being able to reply or talk to old comments are problems that couldn't have possibly been put there by an experienced team. Who do you want trust? The company which made the products you love and clearly know how to get their act together? Or the company that cracking down wholesale on anonymity while doing nothing to stop the trolls (and if anything, giving them more power)?

      Or you could be like me and not give a shit either way... I don't even have a youtube account (that's not a proxy).

      Delete
    4. Well I think I should clarify one part, yes it would probably get one companies act together. But it has pretty much been proven before that video game companies have a tendency to not learn from their competition's mistakes. Of course what brings this about is that most likely if Nintendo just drops out of making games I will also stop making LPs.

      Delete
    5. Well I don't think this just video game companies that have a tendency to not learn from their (and their competitor's) mistakes. Bank of America, Car companies, Water companies, Governments (Venezuela looks like its about to start rioting for basic food items), Computer companies, Restaurants, telecommunications companies... there are entire lists of companies and businesses that haven't gotten their acts together, and a lot of the big companies just so happen to be on that list! We can only hope for our favorite companies to get their acts together and rise above the ditch that everyone seems to like falling into.

      Delete
    6. Yeah it really seems like it is human nature, among many other things, to not learn from peoples mistakes. Of course for the copyright claims it is also possible nintendo doesn't quite know how to deal with it what with the major part of it being in Japan. The copyright laws from Japan are very much different then ours which probably could lead to this problem. Not to mention the different parts of Nintendo seem to have very little communication since when the whole monetization thing came to light Nintendo of America was shocked by the decision too.
