Welcome to the new format everyone. If Bores can keep up with it.
Every Friday or Saturday (depending on when he uploads and how I feel), you will get a post summarizing the week’s videos. Again, if he can keep up with it.
If he posts a full Irate Gamer episode, that will get its own separate post. This is more for vlogs or stupid stop motion videos that aren’t funny.
Lets begin shall we?
Monday: Nintendo Wii-U Amiibos Action Figure Thoughts & Functionality
It’s been over two years now, why does he still put a hyphen in Wii U?
Back when Nintendo revealed Amiibo at E3, Bores said nothing. No videos, no online posts, not a drop of coverage. The most we got was when someone on Facebook asked him about it and he said “That Mario thing? Kids will like it”. This coming from the man that strokes Activision’s plastic dick for free KIDS toys. The lack of self-awareness is astonishing.
He eventually started mentioning Amiibo on his site, stories about the double gun Samus selling a lot on eBay, or custom Amiibo, but never actually talking about the collecting or their in-game function. That's where this video comes in.
The video begins and we see IG has five Amiibo in front of him. Diddy Kong, Kirby, Mario, Peach, and Meta Kni- WHAT THE FUCK? You didn’t even care about these and you have a rare one?! This feels wrong.
He mentions all the requests he’s gotten in his Skylanders video and that one Minecraft video he did (of course he mentions that, it got a shitload of views for some reason)
He brings up that when Amiibo was announced, he compared them to Skylanders, then claims “that wasn’t really fair”. Oh ya don’t say.
He brings up Smash Bros and how the Amiibo work with them, and that he has a “newfound respect” for them after playing.
He calls the characters “Brawlers”. Wouldn’t “Smashers” or “Bros” be more appropriate? Smash and Bros are in the title of every game, Brawl was only in the title of one. I don’t know, I just find it weird.
Blah blah blah, works with other games…
Apparently, what got him to start collecting, is that they started releasing figures of characters from “other games”. Apparently third-party means “other games”. Does he not realize that every Smash Bros character is from a separate game? It’s meant to be a collaboration of every major Nintendo franchise. Mario, Zelda, Fire Emblem, Pokemon, Kid Icarus, Kirby, even minor representation like Punch Out, Duck Hunt, and Xenoblade. Granted, that would require Bores to know what most of those games are.
While saying this, he reveals he has the Sonic and Mega Man Amiibo.
“Some of them are very hard to find” Welcome to the last five months!
He brings up that Nintendo underestimated demand, and they’ll be reprinting figures eventually, just like Skylanders at the beginning. That’s… actually reasonable. Bores said something reasonable for once. The right course of action is to wait, as reprints are happening. In fact, Japan is getting reprints of Villager, Little Mac, and Wii Fit Trainer.
He mentions all the holes, and that he wants to review Super Smash Bros for Wii U. You are five months late! Anything you say will not matter! Nobody will care!
Aaaand any good will he gained from being reasonable is gone! Bores is outright begging for his fans to send him Amiibo.
What will he offer in return? A shout out or website plug! … Pay them you cheap shitlord! I know you’re too used to Activision giving you free lunches that you don’t understand how much this adds up, but not everyone has a direct line to the creators. Also, you only have 7 Amiibo, of the 29 available now (35 by the time this post goes up), and you’re missing quite a few common ones. You can go to any GameStop or Walmart or Best Buy and see wall to wall Luigis or Bowsers or Links, none of which I see here. But no, that would cut into his … show budget?
Tell me, how is begging for action figures “better” than asking for money to make a movie?
“I would love to give this a full review when I have them all” Then you’re never going to review the game. Of the 48 characters (this isn’t counting the Mii Fighters or Mewtwo), only 35 are confirmed right now, with no indication when the rest will come out. Why can’t you just be normal and review the game on its own with only some Amiibo? You don’t need every character, they all do the same thing anyway.
He gives his e-mail address and really hopes people “help” him. Chris, you can’t say “wait it out” then demand your fans give you Amiibo in the same video. That’s hypocritical. Granted, you don’t shy away from hypocrisy so this is nothing new.
The rest of the video is Bores demonstrating how the Amiibo work in Smash Bros 4. Complete with face cam. I don’t see why he needed to do this, it’s not new information. You’re adding nothing to it.
He also shows his Mii… it looks wrong.
He shows the costume function in Mario Kart 8 and that’s basically the end of the video.
That was pointless. Next!
Tuesday: Beware St Patrick’s Day Ball-Busting Leprechaun
I hate it already just from the title.
It’s a short 25 second video (it says 57 but the rest is “plz subscreebe”)
Bores wishes everyone a Happy St. Patrick’s Day, plugs his Uncle O’Grimacy video, and tells everyone to “watch out for that ball-busting Leprechaun”. Then a poorly drawn Leprechaun flies in, says something that I can’t understand, and hits Bores in the balls. … Bores is in pain and yet I don’t find it funny. Just bored. NEXT!
Wednesday: Skylanders Trap Team Wave 4
It’s Skylanders, I don’t care.
Though there were comments claiming that the dislikes were from people jealous that they don’t have Wave 4. I don’t think they understand how little IG’s fans care for this Skylanders crap outside of like three of them.
I guess posting on Tuesday means there’s no Friday video.
What have we learned this week?
Begging is okay when it’s Chris Bores because……………………………….....
And somehow Bores can make getting hit in the groin unfunny
Don’t give him Amiibo guys. Especially not the Golden Mario.
