The Undisputed World Champion of Stupidity! Get Him Little Mac!

I’m almost convinced at this point that Chris has become a parody of himself. A review of Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out? One of the most beloved NES games of all time? Coming after DuckTales and Kid Icarus, it feels like he’s modeling himself after the old parody videos, like Third Rate Gamer and Irritated Gamer. The difference is that Chris isn’t smart enough to pull it off.

Get your gloves on Mac, it’s showtime.

*looks at description*
“It gets reviewed in a way only Irate Gamer can review it. With anger and frustration!” Actually, that’s the feeling Punch-Out fans will have after watching this.

I noticed he updated the intro to include a clip from the last “review”. I guess he’s going to be doing that now.

0:17 - 1:27: The video begins with IG saying how everyone had the game, leading to our first dumb cutaway after saying his grandma had it. Featuring Bores in a wig and shawl and Kid Bores “Winter Gaming” the hell out of the controller. It’s sad that a woman playing Game Boy Tetris on Fresh Off the Boat was a more convincing actress, and she was only in two scenes.
He says one thing that made the game stand out was the “clever characters”, and if he couldn’t beat them, a “shitstorm” would go through his house. Leading to a lot of brown gradient effects surrounding him as he does his dumb “rawr”, and a piece of poop hits him. Why does this feel familiar?

You start in the minor leagues and work your way to Mike Tyson. He shows this by pasting all the boxer’s portraits on a Mortal Kombat tower. GET IT?! IT’S ALSO A FIGHTING GAME! I AM CLEVER!
Fighting Glass Joe… he brings up that between rounds, your coach (Doc Louis by the way, I doubt he would know this) gives you advice. He then calls him Carl Winslow while pasting a picture of Reginald VelJohnson’s face over Doc’s. Urrgh… considering his few fans tried to turn that “Carl joke” into an image macro meme, I’m not surprised he’s bringing him back.
He beats Glass Joe while making more dumb faces. Funny how he calls out Joe for making dumb faces in the game when he’s no better.

1:28 - 3:08: On to Von Kaiser, completely mispronouncing his name. It’s Ky-zer, not Kay-zer. Why do people think “Ai” is pronounced “Ay”? It’s the same shit with “Ninja Gay-den”
He claims Von Kaiser “marches in like he won the second world war” and gets angry. Rather, “competitive” as he claims. Oh and we get a between round scene where Bores has replaced Little Mac. This feels so wrong. He also adds fake text of Doc telling him to “take it easy”
“You’re going down Von Kay-zer!” GAH!
He moves onto Piston Honda. Leading to a long sequence where he tries to fight him but is having trouble. With way too much over-acting and “Winter Gaming”. I’m starting to think he’s trying to appeal to the PewDiePie/Markiplier audience with this.
Eventually he does beat him and we see the password screen with Doc biking and Mac running after (I am not making that joke). He comments that Doc should be the one running… why? Oh, it’s a fat joke because they head to a McDonalds that he imposed into the game… THIS IS DUMB! Also, cycling is actually better exercise than running. Doc may be a big guy, but he can easily keep up with Mac.

3:09 - 6:33: Onto the Major Circuit and Don Flamenco, though he says “Flamingo”. There’s a C in there, like a Flamenco dance. Now I’m just reminded of all the people that get Doflamingo’s name wrong…
He insults him for dancing and then wonders why he won’t throw the first punch. “What is he, a lawyer?” What was that, a joke?
He somehow has trouble with him (he gets hit and knocked out!), he eventually knocks him out. But then he angrily cries that he “falls like a prancing asshole”. Chris… everyone falls in a similar way! In fact, that’s the same way Glass Joe falls. The Wonderful 101’s Punch-Out boss even did that! You need to stop fishing for things to complain about, especially when it shows how little you actually know about the game.
He somehow runs out of stamina when fighting him (how is he sucking so bad?) but eventually gets a TKO. With a dumb bit where he cycles his falling animation.

On to King Hippo. IG claims he’s the coolest because of… his “iconic” part in… Captain N. God damn it, enough of this! Captain N is crap! Nobody likes it! You are so full of it Bores! You’re only supporting my theory! Gah!
Also, King Hippo isn’t even close to the “coolest” character in Punch-Out. Personally I feel Bald Bull is the coolest.
He calls King Hippo an “oversized Oompa Loompa” … he looks nothing like one! Then says “Taylor Swift victory”. What? What does that mean? Is this his attempt at appealing to young people?

Onto Great Tiger. Mentions his childhood (suuure), how he had trouble, blah blah blah. Leading to another long sequence where he gets his ass kicked. With more overacting and “Winter Gaming”. Then a bit where Great Tiger teleports into his room and punches him twice. He eventually beats him, then a bit where Doc Louis leaves Mac to be Great Tiger’s coach. Bores goes “What the fuuuuck?” in a high-pitched voice that I’m sure some 10 year olds would find hilarious.
Also, he keeps calling him “The Great Tiger”. It’s just Great Tiger, there’s no “The” in his name. According to my informant, who went through the comments, all these weird mispronunciations or misnamings are due to “old habits”. Well guess what Chris, you’re not 8 anymore. Learn how the names are said and get them right so you don’t sound like a complete moron.

Onto Bald Bull, including a bit where he gets hit and Little Mac flies out of the screen and through his wall. Twice! Ugh.
He loses by decision and Bald Bull laughs. He notices that it’s similar to Ganon’s laugh in Zelda II, and believes that Bald Bull is Ganon in disguise. OR MAYBE Nintendo had a limited number of sound effects at their disposal and chose that. This feels like his dumb complaint that Contra Force “stole” sound effects from Top Gun even though both games were made by Konami.
Oh I forgot to mention that he’s been giving “tips” on how to win, stuff you can find on other, better videos or GameFAQs. He also does the “Bald Bull hits Little Mac out of the TV” gag THREE MORE TIMES! This isn’t funny!

6:34 - 9:30: Onto the World Championship!
Piston Honda again, with IG thinking he will be easy but somehow he gets his ass kicked. His “Winter Gaming” is absolutely dreadful. It looks like he’s barely holding the controller now. He gets pissed that the only advice from Doc is to join the Nintendo Fun Club. “How is that supposed to help me?” The Nintendo Fun Club did offer tips & tricks. Perhaps they had tips on how to beat certain bosses.

He loses by TKO (it looks like he’s not even trying) and emulates Little Mac’s game over pose. Leading to a fucking montage. Just what I wanted!
One clip includes him chugging an energy drink while he holds the controller in his right hand. No no no no no! If anything that will make you lose to Glass Joe.
More “Winter Gaming”, generic montage shots (weight lifting, protein shake, stairs, punching bag), oh hey he has a copy of the Nintendo Fun Club newsletter, how much did that set you back? See, Doc Louis’ advice was helpful.
At one point he lifts with NES cartridges (that is stupid) and… plays with two controllers in his hands and one in his mouth. That is beyond stupid, you are not Roronoa Zoro, where is the humor in this?! My head…
One recurring bit includes him trying to spin a Gyromite gyro, one part has him shooting Great Tiger with fake blood effect. I swear, this fight footage is the exact same that we saw before. At one point he swings a sword. How is any of this supposed to help?!
If that sounds like a lot, that’s because this fucking montage goes for almost two minutes (1:50 to be exact). That is way too long!

So did it pay off? Nope, he still gets his ass kicked by Piston Honda Two. Leading him to shove his face in the camera and scream “fuuuuck”. I think that one shot just convinced me he really is trying to get the PewDiePie audience.

9:30 - 10:20: He claims at this point it gets “impossible” and briefly goes over the opponents that follow once you beat Piston Honda Two. Soda Popinski, Don Flamenco Two, Mr. Sandman, for some reason he skips Bald Bull Two. I get the feeling he took the footage of those last three considering how briefly he talks about them. Finally onto Super Macho Man (and yes there is a picture of Macho Man Randy Savage because he is that predictable).
“The one that would rip your head off your shoulders if this game was created on the Sega Genesis” … What the fuck does that mean? Was that supposed to be a Mortal Kombat reference in how the Genesis version wasn’t censored while the SNES version was? I… what?
He skips over Super Macho Man (because I doubt he beat him) and gets to Mike Tyson (likely through the password).
“One punch from  this guy and you’ll be eating that wrestling mat” Boxing ring. You’re boxing. There is a difference. I’m reminded of his random reviewing of Ring King after talking about two wrestling games. Does he not understand the differences?
There’s a weird part where it cuts to IG, he throws his controller down and instead of saying the next line, he dubs it over. This video overall is weird.

The video ends with IG mentioning finger speed, claiming he doesn’t know what that is but brings it up because Mike Tyson says it after you beat him. Well, you play the game with your fingers, and the goal of Punch-Out is to outmaneuver your opponent by being fast. How do you not know what that means? It’s obvious.
He cries that he spent hours on the game as a kid (suuure) and that the ending is Mike Tyson congratulating him. Oh look, more bitching about endings. This is tiresome.
“Well finger speed this asswipe!” … I got nothing.
He violently takes the cartridge out of his NES, notice that it wasn’t even on. Makes me wonder how he even played.
Then… slow-motion as he throws the cartridge at his punching bag and it splits in half. You know, for someone that claims to love this game, you don’t show it. This is why people think you hate all these games Chris, because you physically destroy them. How stupid are you?
JEEZ, that face he makes is terrifying!
Then the Gyromite gyro keeps spinning… oh it’s an Inception parody. Why? What’s the point? Where is the logic? Enough of the Family Guy crap.
Oh in case you didn’t know it was an Inception parody, Bores outright tells you in the ‘plz subscreebe” ending.

… What the fuck did I just watch?!
You know, I might take back the idea he’s trying to model himself after the parody videos, and lean more towards shitty clickbait. Think about it, he’s covering games people love under his so called “character” as he believes that will get people to click, his spastic overreactions resemble popular facecam Let’s Players, random references to popular media (last time was 50 Shades of Grey, this time Taylor Swift), and the thumbnail for each review has Bores in the same pose, “rawring” at the game. And yeah, it’s not a pretty expression.
I am surprised that he didn’t go whole hog and tried to make it a “SCANDAL” video over the second version of Punch-Out, with Tyson replaced by Mr. Dream, and how all the Virtual Console releases used the Mr. Dream version. Maybe he doesn’t know about Mr. Dream.

Only Bores could take the accomplishment of beating Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out, and make it sound like a bad thing. He is so full of crap.
So much reaching, so much stupidity.

We shall see what Monday brings.

  1. Over acting and I'm HOPING he was playing bad on purpose...but knowing Bores, he truly sucks and full of shit. He didn't have the game as a child.

    How the hell do you get hit by Glass Joe, let alone take round 2 to knock him out.

    Plus fail blocking skills.

    KAY-ser? Must be another flawls jawls princible type of Ohio thing.

    2. I've seen people play better games of Punch-Out than Bores could ever dream of... while blindfolded. No, really. I once watched a video of someone playing through Punch-Out blindfolded at Awesome Games Done Quick, and he actually made it to Tyson. He didn't beat the game, but it's still one of the best Punch-Out playthroughs I've ever watched.

    2. Punch-Out is well-known for its racial stereotypes. Out of all the stereotypes Bores could have pointed out, I'm not sure why he brought up Honda's Japanese.

      Delete
    3. I wonder how Bores would react to the boxers in the Wii version speaking their (untranslated) native languages, since he seemed to take issue with Tekken 6 having characters speaking Japanese.

      Delete
  3. It's obvious that Bores ripped some of the Punch-Out footage from elsewhere.

    He made it seem like he couldn't beat the Honda rematch (not sure why, he's pretty easy). There is a password to fight Super Macho Man and Tyson immediately, and there's a password that sends you right to the ending -- so he probably recorded all those legitimately.

    However, you need to defeat Honda 2 in order to capture footage of Soda, Don and Bald Bull 2, there's no password to fight them directly. Therefore, he most likely stole the footage of them.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Why the hell does Chris called the boxers from Punch Out clever? In the context of the game Mac takes advantage of the other boxers so really Mac is the clever one. Also I guess anyone who doesn't know to pronounce Kaizer must have skip modern history in high school. I said in the last this video may end up ruining Chris but if it doesn't I'm sure this path with his "reviews" will.

  5. BatDan, you missed something - When Bores fights the second Piston Honda and it goes to that screen where Doc says "Join the Nintendo Fun Club", Bores says "Fan Club."

    ReplyDelete

    1. The video was long enough already...
      And honestly for the longest time, I thought he said "Fan Club". Wasn't until I looked closer and saw it was Fun Club.

    2. Hey BatDan, I just wanted to make sure that you read these comments I posted on the last blog post in response to your comment asking us to stop saying how he made up the dead friend for sympathy:

      "OK. I take full responsibility for starting that idea and apologize for doing so. I shouldn't go making accusations without proof like Bores has done in the past; that just makes me as bad as him. I truthfully do feel sorry that his friend died and I am genuinely glad that his father is still alive.

      Also, I wouldn't want to get you in trouble for shit like this. Knowing how Bores has treated the dead in the past, though, makes me so angry and cynical whenever he talks about death in any way. However, I will reserve any further comments about death in his life from now on (unless it is extremely clear he is lying with evidence to prove it)."

      Also, I noticed that when Little Mac goes through Bores's wall for the first time at around 5:50, there is already a hole in the wall on the right which Little Mac is supposed to form when he goes through the wall for the second time. In other words, there are two holes in the wall after Little Mac has gone through it only one time.

      Delete
    3. Also, BatDan, why didn't you point out that Bores DIDN'T ACTUALLY BEAT THE GAME and showed the ending anyway.

      Delete
  6. My word this was bad. Every year, Chris gets in deeper and he asks for more. I must also note a couple things: it's probably a safe bet he's not going to remove the Vince Dicola "Training Montage" music for the DVD (since Toei, Saban, and Viacom haven't gone after him for the Power Rangers footage); and also, the original version of Punch-Out predates Zelda II; so there's his canyons in research getting deeper. I think I'll go play this game again, since he's just adding to my list of my favorite NES games he's bashed. See you Monday, Dan.

    ReplyDelete
  7. He needed to get to round 2 before beating Don Flamenco?! Anybody who knows Punch Out- especially someone who has played it for 20+ years- can easily beat him in one round one.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Don 1 is easy, you just have to punch, dodge then put him down.

      Don 2 is similar but more frustrating as it's harder to get him to do what you want.

      Delete
  8. One thing to note is that during the montage, he doesn't just have "an energy drink," it's a Mega Man E-Tank drink, because GAMES.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Another bizarre part is this moment: http://snag.gy/ZZQxV.jpg

    Why is the text mirrored? Was it a mistake in editing he somehow didn't catch? Is he just reading text suspended in mid-air? He has a pen in his hand, so how is he writing in mid-air? Does he have a magic pen or something? What do "Up, Up, Left" and "A,B,B,A" (which sounds like an out-of-place reference to Ikari Warriors) even have to do with Punch-Out?

    Only a few seconds long and this moment is still ridiculously confusing.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Still not as bad as blueluigi's review for Punch-Out.

    ReplyDelete
  11. You forgot to mention the part where Piston Honda says a bunch of random Japanese words and where Chris is like "Well that's racist" or something like that.

    I think it's obvious where he's going with the games he's reviewing...he's now doing games that were featured in Captain N. Next up is either Metroid, Castlevania, or Megaman.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Speaking of Captain N and Castlevaina for a little while now I've wondered if Chris would refer to Sypha as a man or woman. I never did watch Captain N but according to it's Wikia Sypha was turned into a man in the show and according to Castlevania Wikia it was the same for Castlevania 3's manual but not the game's ending. So my point is if Chris did review Castlevania 3 would he call Sypha a man and try to prove people wrong like the whole Ganon Gannon thing.

      Delete
    2. Maybe it's just me, but the "racist" comment kinda reminded me of Cinema Sins.

  13. I bring a new comment from LadyBuggin777:

    "I had to LAUGH at the IG Sucks bloggers! They complained when IG was making videos for himself and now they are complaining because IG is making videos for his fans. Everyone pretty much knows the IG Sucks blog & bloggers are mixed up, insane, can't keep their stories straight, no life rejects. How can anyone take that rag seriously? LMAO!!! It's totally hilarious to view their hypocritical attempts at being critics of anything or anyone. Those guys need to just give up TRYING to give any logical point of view. They have already ruined what little self respect they had left, after 8 years of stalking the Irate Gamer! :D"

    I'll say that she's correct on the first point, but wrong on just about everything else.

    1. It's hilarious how Bores continuously tries to get his critics to quit criticizing him.

  14. So what's your favorite Flower, Batdan? Mine's Chocolate.
    Also, This video makes me feel as drunk as Soda Popinski after too much "Soda"...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow, I mean wow, this video was terrible: the unrealistic "Winter Gaming" play style, the horrible jokes and sketches, his constant forced anger, that montage which went on for WAAYYYY too long, and the destruction scene at the end. I swear, Bores is getting worse and worse at these reviews. I didn't think he could top the stupidity that the Kid Icarus review contained, but I was wrong.
    Is this going to be a pattern? Getting worse and worse at reviewing games that everyone loves but he has to hate and destroy because "grr, I'm Irate"? If so, that's a sure-sign way to get more and more people to hate you (despite your claims that you enjoy these games), and quicken your demise from YouTube and the death of your Irate Gamer character in the process.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Probably a coincidence, but did his grandma outfit at the beginning remind anyone else of Linkara's "Fat Grandma" character?

    Also, is anyone else annoyed by his inconsistent voiceover of himself playing the game?

    ReplyDelete
  17. So now he is going after classics for no other reason that clickbait hits?

    Going after great games just shows how pitiful he has gotten. Maybe he saw that the Nerd did a few reviews of legit classics (SMB3, Ninja Gaiden, Zelda II) and thought he could. Of course like most things, Bores missed that while James reviewed classic games he pretty much always came to the conclusion that the game was a true classic. Go figure that Bores would miss that important detail.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I can't imagine how the people of the Internet would react if Bores' next review was Super Mario Bros. With him trashing DuckTales, Kid Icarus, and now, Punch-Out, it's only a matter of time before SMB gets its unfair bashing from the Boring One himself...

    ReplyDelete
  19. It must be embarrassing that a likely thirtysomething Bores can't even do what I could at 8 fucking years old. No one should take that clown seriously. Anyway, guys, thanks for all your contributions to this list, and I'm pleased to let you know that the new theory is on the way. I'll try and post updates every now then in case you guys are interested in the progress. If you guys wanna make any final additions, now is your chance. Peace.

      Silent Rob is an interesting case. He now hates James, but doesn't seem to care about Bores. But LadyBuggin777 likes his videos, and even didn't mind a video Rob did making fun of IG in 2012 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_S3x9SP6s28).

    2. I think I recall hearing that DrunkenPunk800 became friends with Bores. I could be wrong, though.

      As for Silent Rob, does he hate James because of the whole "e-begging" thing involving his movie and the Cheetahmen II Kickstarter? This is coming from the guy who told people to pay "5 fucking dollars" whenever they visited his website. Hypocrisy at its finest.

      Delete
    3. IIRC, Silent Rob was angry about James' AVGN movie. He made a video about the movie with Guru Larry. They both complained about it being predictable -- although personally why not make the plot everyone wants to see?

      Delete
    4. Yeah, it was really predictable. Twenty minutes in I was saying, "Well, obviously the ET cartridges contain not only a blueprint of Area 51, but also a fragment of an alien ship which will be instrumental in stopping Death Mwauthzyx when General Onward's spite releases him from Mount Fuji."

      Delete
    5. I can think of at least one unpredictable thing in the film-- James' opinion on the game. (Although when she reviewed the game back in 2008, Little Miss Gamer had the same opinion.)

  22. We can at least say that Bores improved on one major aspect: Uploading regular Irate Gamer reviews more often. We have three reviews already. 2007 and 2008 were the only two years that had more than three Irate Gamer reviews (not factoring in Neo, Irate the 80's, etc.) and he's right on track for more.

    3. Yeah, Harrod. You're right. Bores took his right hand off the controller while throwing a punch on screen at 1:38

      I'll bet the footage isn't even Bores playing. Chances are it's someone much more skilled than him (probably stolen footage), and he's just winter-gaming to make it seem like he's a better player.

      Delete
    4. Does anyone have the time to side-by-side the LP footage with the review footage? If they were consistently the same it would be pretty damning, since during the LP he talks about the review in the past tense.

      Delete
    5. I don't think it was someone else's footage. If it was, it wouldn't be so terrible.

      It's likely Bores recorded it, overlayed it, and pretended he was playing by fiddling with his controller. Only off-screen so it wasn't obvious he was "Winter Gaming".

      Delete
    6. So, in other words, it's not a real Let's Play?

      Delete
    7. Post-commentary Let's Plays are a real thing.
      The difference is that those don't show the person pretending to play the game.

      Delete
    8. Oh, so they do exist, it's just that Bores fails at understanding the concept of anything as usual. Got it. Just out of curiosity, who are some notable post-commentary LPers?

      On a side note, Buggin was bragging in the comment section about how she can't see what I'm complaining about since she blocked me...even though she knew I was in the thread she came to say that in and if mention her, I go directly to her Google+ (something I can't do with Bores's real account since he actually blocked me).

      Delete
    9. I saw the video and it's not even a Let's Play because he isn't playing the game while he's talking. It's just him talking with footage next to him. He's not playing the game 'live'.

      Delete
    10. You clearly did not read my conversation with BatDan.

    11. Honestly, if he didn't show the controller in his hands, it would've been more believable.

    1. I guess if Bores does not believe in consistency/accuracy in the English language, he does not believe in the consistency/accuracy of other languages either.

    2. I just love how Bores says that someone's name can be said in multiple ways; it only proves that he can't accept being wrong ever. I seriously think he has psychological problems.

      Delete
    3. If the whole name being said differently is in response to Kaizer than Chris is more stupid than I though because Kazier is a title not a name, that's high school information Chris not that hard to find out.

    4. If there's a video game character with a non-English name that has an "ai" somewhere in it (i.e. Ninja Gaiden), you can almost definitely assume that the "ai" is pronounced "aye" and not "ay". The only exception is Raiden from Mortal Kombat, but he at least has an excuse, as he is a god (thus having no nationality/nation of origin) and was made by an American company.

    5. Actually, Raiden was the name of the Japanese god of thunder, aka "Raijin". Midway mispronounced his name, and sometimes even misspelling it as "Rayden".

      The Metal Gear Solid character also has a character named Raiden (named after a warplane, which in turn was named after the same god), and they pronounced it correctly ("i" sound instead of "a").

    6. True, but my point is that the MK Raiden made in America is an exception to how "ai" is pronounced. Thank you for reminding me of this, though.

  28. Part 2 of the unnecessary Let's Play is up. Apparently, Bores thinks that a review has to be 100% nitpicking.

    1. BatDan, please get to this whole Let's Play as soon as you can. It was way worse than DuckTales and there was just too much bullshit spread all throughout.

  32. You forgot to mention that in the long montage he uses the Training Montage theme from Rocky IV, That's even more copyrighted material that he's never going to put on his DVD!
