More "Pursuing". Are We Supposed to Take This Seriously?

Throughout the month, Chris has been posting more "Pursuit of the Paranormal" videos. As in more snippets from the DVD. Despite his claim earlier that the upcoming videos would be from "other investigations" (it's clear these are all from the same place).

The videos are the same dumb crap. Addressing matters that really don't make sense, like the "mass" of a ghost (aren't ghosts incorporeal, as in you can go through them?), or if ghosts are bound by time, and he even prays for them. What is this?
At one point, he brings up an excerpt from the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Chris, do you not understand the purpose of these texts? They weren't writing about spirits, they were the culture's interpretation of what happens after we die. Not to mention it's ANCIENT, long before our time. During a time when they made up stories in order to understand the world. And again, how is a book about Egyptian philosophy supposed to help you in FLORIDA?

I've had comments in the last post bring up how Chris' methods are laughable, and nobody would take him seriously. I think that says it all.
And the views reflect that.


*checks his site* Nothing...
You know, I'm starting to wonder if GotGame dropped him and he just doesn't know it.

    1. He will one day if he wants his Pursuit of the Paranormal to become what he wants it to, and I don't mean that as an insult he will have to if he is truly passionate about this ghost stuff.

      "Archfiend and his cause" what cause? I've seen bitch about James appearing in kickstarter video and asking for donation for his film, I've Archfiend ignore Kickstarter done but somewhat famous people, and I've seen Archfiend support a Kickstarter...if his cause is against e-begging or Kickstarter I think he's going about the wrong way.

    5. Seriously Jordan if your a supporter of Archfiend than you should know he made a video or videos(don't remember if there were more) about Chris scamming people with Deal Dash, Hell that's how I found out about Archfiend, and I'm fairly sure all people will say scamming is worst than begging. Jordan you're not a troll you're an idiot.

    6. It wouldn't surprise me if Jordan "I'm not a troll which I'm going to prove by trolling constantly" Ross is actually just a sockpuppet account, possibly even Bores or Archhypocrite himself. Whatever the case, he's contributed nothing and is desperate for attention. Try not to give it to him.

  2. If you are referring to AVGN and the movie fundraiser then you do not know much about video production. Most movies are not funded by directors, producers or executive producers. They are funded by outside sources. The original Evil Dead was a crowd-funded movie just like AVGN. The only difference was that was before public internet so I guess you would just call that regular begging?

    1. It makes me wonder if people call Peter Jackson a begger because that's what he was doing when he was producer for that failed Halo movie, he couldn't raise enough money and it was one of the reason the movie was cancelled. Or how do these people fell about Dragon's Den or any of it's spinoff because the whole point of that show is to convince(or beg)wealthy investors for money.

    1. You're giving him what he wants. He's turned an article about Bores's stupid ghosthunting shite into an attention grab and another ill-informed whine about crowdfunding which shows an almost child-like naivety about finance, something he shares with his equally misguided and hypocritical hero Archfiend. And that's ignoring his pathetic comments about people with autism. He should be banned from commenting just for that.

      Try to stay on topic, he'll soon get bored if people are talking about anything other than him.

    2. I'm surprised BatDan, or whoever's watching this blog, hasn't deleted Jordan's comments. He's only out to stir up trouble for us.

  5. With regards to the topic, can't Bores just focus on other places that are actually BELIEVED to be haunted, besides that lighthouse in Florida? No wonder SyFy turned him and his Pursuit of the Paranormal crap down. BTW, I wonder how poor sales of that are going to be compared to AVGN: The Movie?

    With regards to Jordan, HELLO AGAIN, TROLL! :D You are still living in denial, aren't ya?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hell, even a representative from SyFy told Bores that NOBODY watches ghost-hunting shows anymore which I agree. But Bores takes his advice? NOPE. Then again, does Bores EVER listens to anyone (Other than his mom)?

      Delete
    2. Chris wants to be hired on to produce one of his shows with a big budget but he also likes to present himself as an outsider who uses an innovative and unorthodox approach nobody else thought of. With the Irate Gamer he said his idea was to take video game reviews and mix them with his "high" production values (special effects). Remember last year he was on a local news show promoting his film and he even told the interviewers that he takes an unorthodox approach by combining multiple ancient philosophies together.

      Since he sees himself as an innovative outsider who will take the industry by storm it is not a stretch to see he fancies himself as the one who kept on going despite the naysayers and ultimately found "success."

      By the way, new video up! Ghost nun or something.

      Delete
  6. The problem with ghosthunting shows that claim to be real is that you know right from the start that they're not. I don't know if ghosts exist or not because nobody does, I'm an agnostic atheist who would be happily proven wrong but the point there is I need proof. There is no evidence to support the existence of ghosts or the afterlife, and shows like this don't change that. They're just sensationalist garbage, same as mediums. The only thing that can actually be proven with these is that the people responsible are lying or distorting in order to stay in a job, as happened with Derek Acorah. So all this show proves is that Bores is either an idiot for believing this or deceiving people, things we were already fully aware of him doing anyway.

    It pains me to say it but I'd honestly rather he just stuck to doing game reviews. They were retarded and poorly researched as well as full of plagiarism, but nowhere near as unethical and fruitless as ghost-hunting.

  7. New ghost video, this time hawking a new DVD (or as he calls it, "Video disc"). This one promises a 60-minute conversation with a spirit, so that comes to about 36 minutes with Boresian number crunching.

    1. Love how in all of Bores' ghost-hunting videos, they show him sitting in his room with dark saturations at the corners and sides and a round light at the middle to show himself. We can see your face and a part of your room clearly Bores. You're not scaring anyone.

      Delete
    2. @Harrod - Guess Bores forgot about other forms of videodiscs. I'm surprised he doesn't know about Blu-ray! And surely he could do research on Laserdiscs and VCDs... :D

      @Sovereign64 - And the day Bores actually manages to scare someone with his ghost-hunting videos legitimately is the day I become president of the United States... XD

  8. Since Bores isn't going to talk about video games in a while, let me talk about them instead.

    Next week, I'm planning to buy Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I know some of you may be turn off by the Call of Duty franchise but believe it or not, Advanced Warfare may be the first game to actually get my attention. Hopefully, Sledgehammer Games can do a better job than Infinity Ward after last year's atrocious COD: Ghosts.

  9. wow looking at your blog archive from over the years, the number of videos Bores has made is at 33 (if that is accurate) if this keeps up this may be his lowest video count in his career

  11. Happy Halloween everyone!! I have noticed key differences between James and Chris this month. James does his Monster Madness series and talks about good and bad scary movies, telling if they are worth it and showcasing other's work.

    1. Avoid this game. The roster is horrible compared to previous games (padded with 2 versions of a lot of guys including Alberto Del Rio and 2 Kanes, but they're both masked Kanes), they removed a bunch of creation tools from the 360 and PS3 versions and improved nothing. Pretty much a re-skin yet they seem to be using even worse models than 2k14. Of course everything is outdated, Rollins and Ambrose are still SHIELD etc. 2K advertised this game using CAW models instead of actual in-game models....that's how bad it is. Grab 2k14, it has more options, modes and pretty good roster.

    2. I'll buy the game when it's at least $19.99. I mean, the only thing I do like is the inclusion of Sting...and that's it.

    3. Sting is a preorder char but i'm sure there will be codes included so you can download him. Your best bet is to wait until Black Friday. I still do not recommend this game. At this point it's a greedy shameless scheme and there's no way i would support it. Entire modes have been removed and game looks worse than WWE13. Unacceptable. If you really want sting, get him via CAWS. Here's how Sting looks in 2K15:

    3. mainly it was because of a misunderstanding that was caused by, Who else, Asalieri!.

      During one RaR that was done on a recently released episode (the Crazy Castle) back when AVGN episodes were still hosted on Gametrailers and they were NOT supposed to be on YT, because many people were uploading the episodes on YT back then, so Mike matei who runs the AVGN channels on YT file a claim, and Asa being Asa, told people that Mike loves censorship and he is just as bad as the bores (irony considering what happened later), and the same happened with the ROB episode.

      Asalieri keep posting the great majority of the content of those episodes too soon despite the gametrailers exclusivity deal, and asa accused mike matei of being a cunt who loves censorship and this was also when David Savage (game boob) was licking's asa's boots, asa of course claimed that they were just reviews and that he did nothing wrong.......

      considering how he tried to sabotage the AVGN movie release by spreading the pirated version of the movie to everyone on Facebook and even made a troll riff commentary, and still had the guts to "review it".

    4. I never hate Mike Matei. Sure he posts some videos that weren't very good in the past, but he has changed since. I still like his video game reviews and I still respect him as a great artist.

  25. So, Five Nights At Freddy's 2 finally got released.

    Thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Finally? The game was released earlier than scheduled.

    As for the game, it's pretty good. I like that Scott changed the gameplay up (a Freddy mask in place of doors), and got creative with the new animatronics in terms of game mechanics, the music box being one example. And I appreciate a game with a good sense of challenge. The sheer volume of animatronics means that you don't have a quiet moment.

    However, there are some issues. The jump scares are lacking, and it's possible that i'm used to FNAF by now, but they just don't have the same energy (I'm looking at you, marionette). Also, the sheer number of animatronics weigh the game down; the first game worked well in this regard because the four animatronics (5 if you count Golden Freddy) were easy to keep track of and felt distinct. The choice of having 11 active animatronics means some of them start to feel interchangeable, especially when the pace of the gameplay requires that you shift focus between them quickly.

    But at the end of it, the game is fun, don't get me wrong. And boy, it has some teeth when it comes to challenge. I only nitpick because I care.

    2. Seems to me like the Puppet is more like a replacement for the original power mechanic than an actual enemy, seeing as how it's something that instantly kills you if it goes all the way down (evidenced by it not having an AI setting on Custom Night).

      I AM a little disappointed that they seem to have, for lack of a better term, neutered or toned-down Golden Freddy. In the first one he was this bizarre, corpse-like specter that appeared on almost every night regardless of the doors, could only be dealt with in a non- intuitive way, had to be summoned in a unique way, had unique sound effects and a unique killscreen where he crashed your game.

      In the second one he only appears on one night, just kinda shows up whenever, is defeated by the mask like everyone else and makes the same sound as everyone. Just kinda feels underwhelming.

      And I agree that a lot of the animatronics just feel interchangeable. Like, both Chicas approach from the same side and some of the same areas. What's even the point, then?

  33. His technical skill remains strong, I suppose his comedy acting is at least workmanlike, and the "Jack Black" joke is one of his better efforts: It was quick, unforced and not some kind of desperate stretch- he only swapped the word order.

    Liabilities include the poor selection of stock footage (Oh, 1977! The year everyone was walking!), over-selling the concept of interchangeable cartridges (Wait... you mean if I don't like the game, I can take it out and put a new one in?), I'm pretty sure VCS owners looked into what Video Olympics was before buying it, "4-Player Pong" (not a feature of Video Olympics), over-explaining that you can cycle through game variations by using the "game select" switch, the weird explosion/spit out foam chunks gag, and look, dude, Basic Math is obviously for kids.

    Through his typically fractured and impenetrable writing, he seems to be boasting in this post that he will appear in the documentary "Atari: Game Over." If that's what he means, I have to guess that there'll be some montage about the pop-cultural legacy of the landfill story, and a clip from his E.T. review will be included.

    2. Wow! You were on the mark with that prediction, Harrod! And to make it sweeter, Bores's clip was shown alongside a clip from the AVGN movie.
