Observations of Boring Waiting

It's that time again! The time when Bores goes weeks and weeks without actually uploading anything worth talking about.
Oh sure, he posted a contest video and another damn Skylanders video, but is that really worth addressing at this point?

His site is the same crap, just random stuff he found off Tumblr or deviantArt, with news about comic book movies or toys, and once in a blue moon he'll mention something related to video games. Just to reinforce that he is still the Irate Gamer, and not the Irate Toy-player, or Irate Mike Mozart/TJOmega Rip-off.

Seriously though, when ToyFair happened earlier this year, he had like five or six articles about it. But shows like Gamescom, GDC, or PAX? One at the most. Why does he even bother to call himself the Irate Gamer? It's clear he was never a gamer in the first place, and these constant articles show exactly that.
Hell, I'm pretty sure the reason he's obsessed with Skylanders isn't due to the game's difficulty (or lack there of) but the fact that it comes with toys. Toys toys toys toys!
From the few times I watched his Skylanders videos, he doesn't bring up how the character plays in game. He just says if it looks cool or not cool.

Honestly, I don't even get how Chris can continue to sustain this. He barely posts content, his views are abysmal (according to SocialBlade, he gets less than 10k a day) and if he thinks he can live off his merch, he is sorely mistaken.
Hell, there's no way he'll be able to put his "movie" on DVD, that Power Rangers footage basically prevents that. "He can just ask Saban" No he can't. The footage Chris used? Only the music is Saban's, the rest is Toei. That's two parties he would have to deal with, and Toei is not that nice.

He must have a job outside of this. If he does, why doesn't he just say so? Then people would understand the delays. Every comment on the last History of Video Games wouldn't be "Where's Part 6? Where's Part 6? Where's Part 6?" By the way, it's been over two years since the last part. The sun will go supernova by the time he reaches the Dreamcast. Give it up Chris, nobody believes you're a gamer!

*sighs* Sorry I sound rambly.

    1. The long and short of it is, Nintendo is not allowing the gaming media access to any of their projects. There is all sorts of reasons for this, which basically boils down to the media not taking anything they do seriously.

    2. Not surprising since gaming media has been on a downward spiral for a while now. Doesn't help any when a lot of them say one thing and ignore it for somewhere else. I don't get why a lot of people you identify as gamers are borderline hypocrites.

  2. ...and by "announced", I mean released a trailer.

    DLC comes out tomorrow.

  3. Hey I saw the Critic's new review of Disney Afternoon. I laughed at the subtle take that at IG, where he talks about a lame show and compares it to "a game reviewer seeing another and deciding to copy his work." He didn't flat out say it but still.

    1. The punch line writes itself!

      I'm not exactly sure why he chose this moment to do this, though. IG has been irrelevant for a long time now. The Critic hasn't spoken ill of him since... 2008, was it? Linkara is very vocally opposed to him, though. Maybe he had something to do with it.

    2. Doug mentioned Bores in that DVD he released of NC reviews in the plot hole, I think it was in his Suburban Knights review. During James Rolfe's voice cameo NC quipped "so this thing, who I think was voiced by the Irate Gamer..." Not exactly talking badly about Bores but it's well known that he (rightly) has no time for him.

  5. You know, I have thinking about writing a parody fic about someone wrote a fic Decepticon beating up My Little Pony for April Fools. Any suggestion?

    1. Depends, are you going for comedy or terrible?

    2. They can be both, if My Immortal is any indication.

    3. I'm going to do it terrible on purpose. If I did it for comedy, it won't be funny.
      Though I won't post it on DeviantArt, I will be posting it on my blog instead. I have seen a lot of anti-bronies on d DeviantArt.

    4. Have one of the characters call the decepticon a deceptic*nt. Bonus points if you get the most out of character person to say it.

  6. Oh yes, the waiting begins. Naturally, everyone is already asking about the next part in the comments of that odious review (the drinking game had the conditions filled within moments; I got very deep into my Mountain Dew Voltage and the Sentai I was saving for Nickelodeon's infamous breaks); and in addition to Saban and Toei, Viacom is also a factor now that the show is on Nick. Of course, a glut of Skylanders videos and nary a mention of Yoshi's New Island or the fact that Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U now has a subtitle and two new arenas. I also wonder when the bubble will burst on the trading figure game/video game combo; especially since Disney Infinity has more to sustain it with user-generated content (which Boring man dismissed). Naturally, his panning sent me right back to One Piece, Kill la Kill, and Pokémon XY The Series; upon which I beat the Genesis game again. That will be all for now, I think I'll get back on my backlog of episodes and videos for my channel. See you around Dan.

    1. I'm starting to get the impression myself that the only reason he isn't into the Disney game is he for some reason doesn't like Disney. As far as sustaining a game world with collectible characters, Disney's game is the one that has the edge because of the sheer volume of available and easily recognizable characters. Disney just has so many great sets to collect. In fact for someone who seems to be toy collecting obsessed, Bores should be all over the Disney game.

      I've tried the demos of both games and I like the Disney system better as it allows more gameplay options that don't include buying more toys.

  7. I'm just curious has he mentioned anything about PAX East? Other then that I am calling that somehow little cousin Joey is going to show up and the review will be anther Power Rangers game.

    1. Not a word. The last couple days included pictures of the Gotham TV show, Star Trek beer, a new Diablo III Easter egg, new Lego Simpsons (with him whining that there's no video game), and an oven mitt shaped like the Power Glove.

      I can't believe GotGame pays for this...

    2. Bores is getting money for that site? Or do you mean they're paying for the hosting?

    3. GotGame is paying for the hosting.

    4. GDC just happened and yet Bores rarely mentions it at all. Why is Gotgame still paying Bores when he's not writing articles related to video games at all? Just posting toy articles on his site. If I want to read toy articles and reviews, I would rather visit ItsAllTrue.net.

  8. Anyone watch the McDonalds changables video he just posted? The whole time I was asking "WHAT'S THE JOKE?!" I mean, exploding bananas? Like that was soooooooo funny the first time, he had to use it again and again throughout the video. Also, Hawaiian Punch guy? Where did that come from? Oh well, I expect an awesome review by BatDan soon.

  9. I might have time to do the predator wiki article today... maybe... I'll see if I have time.

  10. Speaking of Mike Mozart, I wonder if Viacorporatebastard is still after him...

  11. Chris does have a job outside of IG, from what I hear he works at a crafts store or something like that.
