I was going to wait until the end of the week to see if he would keep his promise of "New videos every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday", but the video he just posted has to be addressed.
After claiming "retirement" and "I'm done because views are bad", he's apparently bringing back the regular "Irate Gamer" show. With a teaser of Bores meditating in front of the Old Man from the first Legend of Zelda because "I'M SO RETRO", and then a montage of the awful awful "movie". All set to a slow version of his theme, which may I remind you is a piece of royalty-free music found off a now discontinued Digital Juice product.
So to everyone that believed Bores confused "retirement" with "hiatus/taking a break", you were correct all along. Once again showing that Bores has trouble with the English language.
I look forward to dissecting the stupidity, because it will be there.
Since I'm here, I might as well recap the video he posted Monday.
In case you haven't heard by now, Disney announced they will be rebooting DuckTales in 2017. Honestly, I'm okay with this. Though I do wonder if Alan Young will still even be alive by then...
Bores, being the "ace reporter" he is, posted a video about it... at least two weeks after the announcement broke. Continue the Kotaku level work Bores, it's so professional.
Anyway, Chris is excited because he was a huge fan of the original series because he was a fan of the Uncle Scrooge comics. He then holds up one and gushes on how awesome it is.
He does have one objection in that he feels the original series did not age well. WHAT? You need your eyes checked as DuckTales is one of the few 80's cartoons that still holds up. He thinks it's his age, or his love for the comics. No, you're just not a good critic.
No apparently it's because Don Rosa set his expectations too high. You know, there are fans of the original comic that also love the animated series.
He mentions how Rosa tied all these "facts" together. You mean lore right? Continuity? More improper English from Chris. Is it any surprise people thought he legitimately retired?
He picks up his copy of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck (which he incorrectly calls The Life and Times of Uncle Scrooge, even though the correct title is RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF HIM) and describes how it goes through Scrooge's life. Opening the book to show us random pages that we can barely make out. Use a scanner and edit them in you moron!
"Making his fortune in the Klundike" You mean Klondike?
Wait, he does edit in pages! Why couldn't you do that earlier? Why pad out the video fumbling around the book trying to find them?!
Apparently another reason he doesn't like the cartoon now is that they replaced Donald with Launchpad or Webby. He claims he heard a "rumor" from EW.com that they want Launchpad and all these other characters to come back. That's not a rumor Chris, that's speculation. There's a difference.
He doesn't want Launchpad to come back because SOURCE MATERIAL! Too bad Chris, Launchpad was a staple of the original cartoon, he's coming back.
More gushing about Don Rosa...
He claims Scrooge was George Lucas' inspiration for Indiana Jones. Oh sure, if you ignore Doc Savage, Allan Quatermain, the serial shorts from Republic Pictures, James Bond, then yes he's totally based on Scrooge McDuck. Do your research!
The video ends with Chris saying he's excited, and begs Disney to work on the show, wanting them to contact him. Boy you are deluded. What qualifications do you think you have? "I READ THE COMICS" You and millions of other people. The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck is one of the most critically acclaimed graphic novels of all time. You are not alone in your love of Rosa's stories! Also, I don't think they'll hire you after your "no Launchpad" comments.
I'll see what he uploads on Friday and consider if that's worth making a post about. If he goes by his new schedule as promised, expect weekly posts on Friday or Saturday. Depending on the content at least.
The stupidity returns!
