This Does Not Expand Dong, It's Not Even Creepy

So it seems my gut was wrong last week, we didn’t get a big video on Friday. In fact, we didn’t get a video at all.
But we did get one on Thursday. I hope you like shilling!

Bores shows off that he got a Dark Pit amiibo. … From Japan. I have to be honest, I feel importing amiibo from Europe or Japan is cheating. I know they have way more stock, but I prefer not to pay the premium. I waited for Marth and I eventually got him. The exception to this is Famicom ROB That will require importing (unless Nintendo pulls a “Special Edition” R.O.B. for both regions, Japan getting NES ROB, the West getting Famicom ROB).
However, the video’s main reason for existing is to promote a site called VidFall. A “too good to be true” deal site where you pick an item, watch a bunch of commercials to lower the cost, and buy the item at your desired price. Apparently it’s legit as I’ve found a lot of positive feedback about it. I don’t know, still seems shady to me.
Remember the “joke” in his Tekken 6 review where he said he would gladly give it a positive review if he was paid off? Back then I still called him a hypocrite for joking about “selling out“ when he‘s done it before, and now he’s waaay worse about it. Last week was TWO paid promotion videos. Have you so little dignity that you’re resorting to this now? This would explain where he’s getting the money to keep this up, especially when the views are terrible.

New week, new videos.

Tuesday is yet another toy review. At least this time it’s actual Lego. Specifically, Lego Minecraft. If I may digress a bit, I think Lego Minecraft is the most redundant thing. One is a toy about building things with blocks, one is a game about building things with blocks. Combining them just seems pointless. I know there’s more to do in Minecraft, but the immense creativity it provides is one of the major selling points. All those YouTube videos of things people built in Minecraft. All Lego would do is add the Minecraft characters and monsters to the growing list of properties Lego uses like Marvel, DC, Lord of the Rings, Simpsons, and recently Doctor Who.

Anyway, the video.
*reads title* “Lego Minecraft Crazy Review” Ooooh no, oh no no no no. This better not be what I think it is.
*reads description* “Coming at you is another crazy review, this time is the Lego minecraft set called the Mine.” More redundancy. Actually going by more of the title, the set itself is called “The Mine”. He just didn’t use proper punctuation to distinguish that fact.

*watches* Not as many random jump cuts or inane jokes. They’re there, but not in excess. The video is only 2:06 long.
He builds it, he shows off features… I’m sure there’s way better channels out there for Lego fans.
More randomness, Bores questions why there’s bread. Have you actually played the game? It’s also about survival, you need to eat!
“You can even reenact scenes from Titanic!” How? This isn’t a ship. Random references aren’t jokes.

“All the fun of the video game” Nope. Especially when the game is $27 on PC, and this set costs $110 on the official Lego site. Game sounds like a waaaay better deal.
Anyway, a Creeper appears and blows it up… the king of predictable. For those wondering, the Creeper doesn’t say “That’s a nice playset you have there, shame if something were to happen to it”, but that would require Chris to have actually played the game and be familiar enough with the community to know about its memes.
Also, at the end he “falls over” after getting blown up, but it’s… animated. With image rotation. You can clearly see he doesn’t have a lower half when he falls, and it looks stilted. You couldn’t film yourself fainting in a convincing way Chris? You had to “animate” yourself fainting? That just seems like wasted and needless effort.

The sad thing about this? It’s going to get views. The Minecraft fanbase is crazy, his last video about the Minecraft action figures currently has over 460k views. They don’t seem to care who is delivering the content just as long as it’s Minecraft. I really don’t get it. Especially since once again this wasn’t a review. Just Bores describing what’s in the toy, and then a bunch of wacky jokes.

Friday! It’s a regular IG review. What classic game is he going to desecrate with his stupidity this time?
Donkey Kong. … Yep. Though going by title, he’s going to talk about all the classic Donkey Kong games.
“Donkey Kong 1, 2, 3 Nes & Arcade Review (Jr, Math) S5E7 | The Irate Gamer” Don’t you mean Donkey Kong Jr. not 2? Oh wait, he put “Jr.” in parenthesis at the end there because… I don’t know. The title is a mess.

For those wondering, yes, this was made in “honor” of the Happy Madison atrocity Pixels.
“To put us in the spirit of Pixels the Movie, This review covers Donkey Kong 1-3 plus a few others! Don't miss this triple hitter!” You mean the movie with 20% on RottenTomatoes because anyone with two working brain cells could put together that Adam Sandler is cinematic poison? Not box office poison though…
Also, how is it a “triple hitter” when you claim you’re also looking at Donkey Kong Jr. Math? Clearly you need that game considering four does not equal triple.

Video is only about six minutes so hopefully the suffering isn’t so bad.

0:17 - 1:45: We open on the Arcade banner for Donkey Kong, Bores explains a bit about it, claims Donkey Kong is “one of the most popular characters of all time” (I would have gone with “one of the most popular Arcade games of all time” but apparently I’m just a stoopid head) how Mario was originally called Jumpman, the game was ported to the NES, he brings up the “Donkey Kong Classics” compilation (though he says it as Donkey Kong’s Classic for some reason).
He starts playing the NES version, says you need to “hightail it the hell out of here” because the first barrel will hit the “fire can”. It’s Oil, can’t you read? It clearly says Oil on the canister! Are you seriously that illiterate?
It gets harder, he gets killed by a barrel, yells at Jumpman for not “jumping”, I’m surprised at the lack of jokes. Is he showing restraint?
Oh, never mind, we got one right after that. He gets the hammer, says he doesn’t like getting it because he has to wait around until it runs out, then a gag where the hammer goes for a long time (I just noticed that this is another joke he heavily relies on, making things go longer than they really do, like waiting for the Rolling Cutter to return in Mega Man [even though there is no wait time]).
Then he demands to speed it up as Pauline is… having wine with DK. Uggggh.
“That smooth talking monkey!” DK is an ape. He doesn’t have a tail.

1:45 - 2:16: He moves onto the next level. He says it’s “one of the easiest” Wait what?! “… because of this part here” as he circles the part with the springs falling down. Wait, did you mean to say “hardest”? How could you screw that up? Holy shit! This feels like the sequel to “the perfect predecessor to the first Mario game”. Are you sure English is your first language? No, even people in ESL can  tell the difference between “easy” and “hard”.

He mentions how to get past it (just avoid them really) almost gets to the top, but gets killed by a spring. Calls the game an asshole and moves on to the last level.
He beats final level and gets some “alone time” with Pauline. We then get what’s possibly the worst Mario voice ever recorded. Bores that sounds nothing like him! Who are you even trying to imitate? It’s not Lou Albano or Walter Boone, and it’s certainly not Charles Martinet.

2:17 - 2:48: Game restarts. Does he complain about this?
Actually no, he complains about the lack of the Pie Factory level (or “conveyer belt level” as he calls it). There’s a good reason for this, let’s see if he brings it up.
Then we get a retread of his TMNT II review! He cries about the lack of intro screen (with DK carrying Pauline to the top of the building) and the lack of the “How High Can You Get?” screens and outro scenes (DK taking Pauline after reach the top). Complete with the word “Gone” stamped over each one. Oh my god the ignorance is painful. It’s been eight years, how do you still not get it?! The NES does not have the same power as an Arcade cabinet! I know there was a two year difference between the Arcade DK and the Famicom, but DK wasn’t made with consoles in mind! All that stuff was removed because the Famicom had memory limits! Yes, that included the Pie Factory. There is an updated port called “Donkey Kong Original Edition” that was released on the Wii and 3DS Virtual Consoles, it reinstates the missing features, but those are also modern systems where that can easily be done. This was the 80’s, with limited space. They couldn’t do that! Holy crap you’re dumb.

Then he claims that Donkey Kong Classics should be called “Donkey Kong’s Incomplete Pile of Shit”, with edited text. No Chris, it’s your fault you won’t do research. You don’t get to say “the internet is full of inaccurate information” again.

2:48 - 3:38: He moves onto Donkey Kong Jr. Let’s see how he fucks this up.
He plays through a bit, then gets killed by a Snapjaw. Then a bizarre bit where he imagines a realistic blue Alligator.
On the next stage, brings up the birds (Nitpickers, no seriously that‘s what they‘re called), and claims they drop “bird shit”. Those are eggs you fuckhead! How are you somehow dumber in this review than usual? Did you see an early screening of Pixels and it destroyed several IQ points?
Then a shot from behind him looking at the TV as he turns to the camera, his narration saying “This game is getting pretty bowl” … What the fuck does that mean? Is he saying something else? It sounds like he’s saying “bowl”. Am I losing my hearing?
EDIT: I'm told he's saying "bold", as in the use of "poop" is a "bold move". I could barely hear the D at the end. Thanks to Livid One for clearing this up.
Goes through the third level (believes it’s in a computer, it’s not it’s in the city), then the last level and he beats it, then a comment on how Jr. can lift his dad but can’t survive an alligator bite. … There’s a huge difference between lifting something heavy and getting bitten by a prehistoric lizard that can generate up to 3,700 pounds per square inch of bite pressure. Also, it’s an Arcade game made to drain quarters of your pocket, one-hit kills were the norm.

3:39 - 5:01: Onto Donkey Kong 3, the one even Nintendo has trouble caring about.
But then we a “DUN” as IG wonders what happened to Donkey Kong 2. Oh great, he’s going to recycle his Goonies II bit again (the one he already stole from the AVGN).
Actually no, he brings up the Game & Watch Donkey Kong II, which came out AFTER Donkey Kong Jr. (which itself had a Game & Watch version) but he doesn’t say that. I’m saying it because I’m actually looking this stuff up.
He briefly goes over the DKII G&W, believes they titled it that so “people won’t get confused” over DK3. Except everyone considered Donkey Kong Jr. to be Donkey Kong 2, nobody was questioning where Donkey Kong 3 came from because nobody is stupid. You’re not doing the “Chronologically Confused” thing correctly! It actually has to be confusing, this isn’t that bad. This isn’t like Final Fantasy II was really IV and III was really VI.

Anyway, he finally talks about DK3, says it sucks because it doesn’t have “barrels, springs or Marios” (not the reasons I  would have gone with…) then says the game is too easy (I’m too tired to go on anymore tirades).

5:01 - 5:50: He then goes onto Donkey Kong Jr. Math. Or “Donkey Kong Math” as he calls it. I’m almost convinced he’s illiterate. There’s a big Jr. right there on the cartridge and the title screen!
He goes over the first game, having to add up the number DK is holding. Then a bit where IG “adds, subtracts and multiples” various versions of himself. “IS MY GREEN SCREEN COOL YOU GUYS?! PLEASE TELL ME IT’S COOL!”
Then he briefly plays the second game where you climb to answer simple questions. With him continuing to claim the Nitpicker’s eggs are really bird poop. YOU’RE NOT FUNNY!

The video ends with him taking the game out of his NOT EVEN TURNED ON NES! Just try!
He prepares to destroy the game (at least this one kind of deserves it, it’s not really a good game) but then an Angel DK appears next to his head and grunts, I'm guessing telling him not to do it, but then a Devil DK shows up, throws a barrel at him and knocks him out. See, that’s a faint, why couldn’t you do that for the Minecraft video?
It’s over.
I watched his endslate, and he says he “cracks up every time he sees the ending” …. No wonder you think Pixels looks good if THAT’S your idea of a joke.

It somehow feels like Bores was dumber this time around. Things that should have been obvious just didn’t get through his thick skull. Once again, barely reviewing the subject matter, with immensely painful jokes. I didn’t even see the point of bringing up the Game & Watch DKII, everyone already considers Jr. to be Donkey Kong 2. I’m just flabbergasted at how moronic this video was. Arcade ports will not always be exact!

I hope you all have a good weekend.

Actually, before I go. It’s been announced that Blip will be shutting down on August 20th, likely taking down all the videos it’s hosted. That includes the Irate Gamer’s channel. Yes, he has a Blip channel, though he hasn’t updated it since January 2014.
On there are a number of videos that he didn’t upload to YouTube, most notably the original Tekken 6 review and the Sonic Generations review. So if you want to see these reviews (and others) again, now is the time to do it. Unless someone downloads them all and puts them up all over the internet. It could happen.

  1. Before Bores actually did that falling over "effect" at the end of his LEGO Minecraft "review", didn't Third Rate Gamer do something similar in his Super Mario Bros. review when he "fought" Bowser?

  2. File this under "Department of Redundancy Department":

    "Once the NES came around, the popular "Donkey Kong" game was ported to the NES".

    In contrast, the AVGN has done his best to avoid this problem (he mentions this in 12:26 of his "Making of" video.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Surprised about IG not complaining about the lack of intro and intermission scenes in DK Jr for the NES., and how Stanley's death animation was a tad more graphic in DK3 for the Arcade.

    ReplyDelete
  4. "For someone whose name is Jumpman, he should have been able to jump over that barrel!"

    Therefore it's the game's fault that I sucked at it!

    *sigh* I missed Third Rate Gamer.

    Also, I saw the Lego Minecraft video and it wasn't informative at all. Just andom jokes which aren't worth a chuckle at all. And it's only two minutes long so it's not even a review at all.

    I highly recommend watching TJOmega's review of the Lego Minecraft set "The First Night". That review is much much MUCH MUCH better than IG's review.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yeah, seeing how Bores is only focusing on games that everyone knows about for his retro reviews nowadays, it's very clear he's desperate for views. And sadly, it works. Somehow, his actual Irate Gamer episodes have way higher views and like to dislike ratios than all his other videos. I really don't understand his fans. Do they really only think the video is good just because it says that it's an official Irate Gamer episode in the title and description? Do they even care or understand that they're not even learning or gaining anything from watching these videos and that they're just as shitty and lazy as his other ones? I...I just don't get it.

    Also, the way to tell an ape apart from a tailless monkey is to know that apes walk on their knuckles while monkeys walk on the palms of their hands. And now you know.

  6. Oh yeah, I also wanted to mention that I finally beat the Story Mode on F-Zero GX. It was a real bitch to get through (especially the infamous Chapter 7), but I enjoyed the challenge and hearing that song glorifying Captain Falcon and all his badassery and manliness at the end of it all was just the best fucking feeling in the world. I can just imagine how Bores would "review" F-Zero GX now...


    "So F-Zero is a game for the Nintendo Gamecube that was a spinoff game for the Super Smash Bros. character Captain Falcon...

    What the hell, why am I racing in a car? Why aren't I out Falcon Punching and kicking bad guys? What a piece of sheeyat!...

    And you can go on speed boosts and up ramps. Wait a minute, this is exactly like Mario Kart! What do you have to say to that, Captain? (Sprite in Bores's bad Captain Falcon voice) Uh, Falcon PUNCH! (Captain Falcon then comes out of the TV and Falcon Punches Bores, who then gets up and Falcon Punches him back, because IG is Gary Stu who has no true respect for Captain Falcon or any other video game character)...

    Who the fuck let lava on the goshdamn course? (Edits Bowser into the game who says: Don't look at me.)...

    (After beating Chapter 7) Glad that's over. But wait, even after beating Shadow in the Grand Prix, this guy named Deathborn who we never saw in any of the cinematics like the prologue to story mode comes out of nowhere and challenges the Captain to a race. (Forced anger.) Why you...

    So after beating Deathborn, he crashes into the lava and Captain Falcon puts on the belt and poses like Macho Man Randy Savage...

    But we still need to win one more race against a copy of the Blue Falcon. (forced anger). Huh, Captain Falcon's driving this Blue Falcon, I wonder who's driving the other one. (A Smurf is edited into the Creator's Ghost's vehicle and says: "I'm blue like the Blue Falcon and I exist. Laugh you fucking sheep.")...

    So after that ball-bending race, all we get is Captain Falcon taking off his helmet, and they don't even show us his face? What the fuck! That's all I get for going through this shitstorm? I don't even feel the slightest bit of satisfaction of going through this challenge of a game, so I'm just going to destroy it just because I don't like the ending. And I'm not even going to race in a Grand Prix for fun or try out any of the other racers or modes. (IG puts the game on the street, and runs over it with his car. Then he reminds people at the end of the video to watch his other crap and remarks on how he looked awesome destroying the game at the end of the video. And lastly, the obligatory "Game On.")"


    Seriously, that was really fun to imagine.

    2. F-Zero GX or just any F-Zero game in general?

    3. Yeah, I was assuming you meant the latter. There's no way in hell he could even finish the story mode in GX. Hell, he couldn't even beat Punch-Out!! For his "review" of the game.

    4. Still though, this is a very good prediction of what he would say if he ever did review the game, isn't it?

    1. That so? I read that it reinstated the "intermission segments" too. Must have been false info.
      I know it put the Pie Factory back in.

      I'd play the game, but NoA was weird about the game's availability. Only giving it away through a 3DS promotion (that I missed).

      Delete
    2. I saw videos. It only restores the pie factory and the scenes at the end of the first three levels where Donkey Kong grabs Pauline and climbs to the next level.(during which Mario inexplicably disappears).

      Delete
    3. I see. I guess it wasn't a complete restoration.
      I wish Nintendo would actually sell the game.

  8. Eh, I wouldn't say Sandler is cinematic poison...he can act/make a good movie when he wants to...but he rather just have fun.

    The cobbler was actually enjoyable, and not the typical Sandler shitfest.

    Replies
    1. Yeah he definitely has the capability to be a great actor. Have you seen "Reign Over Me"?

      Still, it doesn't matter if he can be a great actor when he usually doesn't... Bores could make some great stuff if he'd get a work ethic to go with his talent as an editor, and leave the research/writing/acting to someone else.

      Delete
    2. I particularly like the scene where he bonds with Don Cheadle over Shadow of the Colossus.

      Delete
  9. Bores making a video because of Pixels seems like a match made in heaven. Think about it: This video was made by a hack who doesn't know or like video games (but is cashing in on the video gaming culture) in honor of a movie starring a hack who doesn't know or like video games (but is cashing in on the gaming culture). And both things are an insult to gamers (and anyone with intelligence), but are aimed at the lowest common denominator.

    1. If you want an ACTUAL video game movie that respects the culture, stick with Wreck-it Ralph.

    1. He's doing a parody of Lanky Kong's verse in the DK Rap.

    2. In Mortal Kongbat (a godlike mash up of the DK Rap and the Mortal Kombat theme) the lyrics are sentence mixed to say:

  11. Donkey Kong appeared in six episodes of Captain N.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, that was a random comment.

      Delete
    2. I'm guessing it's about the theory that all of Bores' gaming "knowledge" comes from watching Captain N as a kid, hence why he calls Pit "Kid Icarus" among other things.

      It would also explain why he's been doing reviews of games with characters from the show (Kid Icarus, Mega Man, etc.) and now Donkey Kong, since he appeared in several episodes (although he's not a main character). Or maybe the Boring Man just wants to enrage people by bashing good games; probably a little of both.

      Delete
    3. @Winston Griffin, that's what I was getting at. I meant for my post below to appear in this thread. That said, I'm still expecting Castlevania (maybe around Halloween which is in August according to Bores - remember Monster Party?) and/or Metroid.

      Delete
    4. I bet he'll destroy Metroid at the end of his "review" of the game because he'll be angry to find out that Samus is a woman. After that horrible tweet about the new Ghostbusters movie and him mistaking a female dragon for a male because it didn't have breasts, I'm positive that he's sexist.

      Delete
  12. When Bores released his Mega Man video, the theory that he got most of his Nintendo knowledge from Captain N resurfaced, as he had previously done Kid Icarus and Mike Tyson's Punch Out (King Hippo). There was speculation that his next video would be Castlevania or Metroid to bring the Captain N thing full circle.

    1. Actually, this still sort of counts as proof. Donkey Kong was a vital character in Captain N (and probably one of the most accurate)

  13. "Then a shot from behind him looking at the TV as he turns to the camera, his narration saying 'This game is getting pretty bowl.'"

    "Bold." The word you're looking for (and somehow misheard) is "bold." The "d" is somewhat on the silent side, but it is there.

  14. I think he was trying to say that the game was getting pretty bold, after mistaking the Nitpickers' eggs for poop.

  16. So I'm looking through the comments, and a large chunk of them talk about how ingeniously funny the ending is. And why is it that IG's generic videos have a sizable amount of criticism while his official retro reviews are full of comments that completely suck his cock? I know I asked this in an earlier comment, but it just amazes me how much people worship this guy that they'll agree with him on anything.

    1. I bet he's using the good ol' sockpuppets and removing comments strategy. Since he actually puts "effort" into these videos maybe that's why these have so many white knights and fanboys.

  18. I wonder if when summer's over and Chris's girlfriend's kids go back to school, Chris will go back to his Mon-Wed-Fri schedule. Or maybe he's too comfortable for his current schedule to change back. Either way, at least he's actually maintaining a schedule.

    3. When I told one of IG's fans why Chris's videos can't even qualify as actual reviews, he responded saying "Who cares? He's still funny." and "No, they watch him because he's funny." Apparently, IG's fans think that people watch reviews to see jokes rather than to see whether a piece of literature, film, etc. is good or not. There truly is no hope for them.

    1. I don't think Bores even knows that the DK in the original arcade game is actually Cranky Kong while the current DK is his grandson.

    2. It's actually debated whether Cranky is DK's grandfather or father. The Super Donkey Kong Games say grandfather, but 64 (which has that infamous rap, also by Grant Kirkhope) say father. But either way, Cranky did mention his role in the arcade game in DKC2's story.

      Delete
    3. But isn't it also confirmed that current Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. are not the same character? Then that would mean that Jr. is his dad, which would make Cranky DK's grandfather.

    4. The first appearance of the red tie wearing younger Donkey Kong was in the Super Game Boy version. There was also a Donkey Kong Jr. in that game.

      So, depending on wether Cranky is his grandfather or father, there's either 3 or 4 Donkey Kongs.

    5. I always thought that the DK you see in DKC and in Smash Bros was Donkey Kong Jr. all grown up and his dad is the one you save in Donkey Kong Jr.

  24. So, he did a review of "Donkey Kong" and never even mentioned Nintendo's legal issues with Universal Studios over "King Kong"?

    Maybe a mention about how it was a rebranded "Popeye" game?

    ... on another note, I just want to say that I actually enjoy Donkey Kong 3. I actually think it was a pretty ambitious move to combine a shmup and platformer together. Yeah, it hasn't aged well, but it came from a time where every game wasn't expected to control exactly like SMB3.

    6. I'll have to look into it more; since Video Games The Movie was a similar nonstarter. Just as well; since it looks like audiences don't care about Adam Sandler SFX comedies the way they do about Tom Cruise spy capers ($55 million actual officially puts the writing on the wall for Pixels); Chris Pratt training raptors, animated emotions inside a young woman; and Marvel wowing with Ultron and Ant-Man (the former I found to be a worthy sequel to The Avengers and a great film on its own, the latter looks really fun). To say nothing about Minions that speak primarily in Simlish and still have a more coherent plot than Pixels. Highly likely most theaters are giving Sandler the old heave-ho now that the first two weeks have passed (as in, the minimum amount of time a theater can keep a new movie).

    1. I've been seeing it getting a lot of backlash by the Smash community but I think it's fine. This was the first time I bought a Mii costume pack (solely for Lloyd) which was exciting, and I wish we could get all of the N64 stages in this game because they're all fun as heck.

      Delete
    2. I think people are just salty about K.Rool. Sure he's a Mii costume, but that doesn't mean that he's out of the Smash Ballot for good. If anything, this will probably get more people to vote for him. Also, it's kind of sad that the Project M completely remade Hyrule Castle while Sakurai basically took it straight from the 64. Nevertheless, I'm glad Hyrule Castle is back either way. Though, I would like to see more Melee stages (or new stages) rather than just 64 stages. If they brought back Big Blue, that shit would be so dank.

    Ragequitting and vacationing are solid theories, but at some point we may each have to consider how we'll respond if the fact is that he is unwell.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just checked his Facebook. Nothing after his post of the Donkey Kong "review." You do have a good point about the possibility of him being unwell. However, if by unwell you mean physically, I would have at least expected him to go out of his way to make an update video about his condition (I know Markiplier posted a video of himself in the hospital when they were doing surgery on him so that his fans knew what was up). Not saying anything bad about his character, just saying that it would be likely of him to do that.

      Delete
    2. It would seem that way. I have a myriad of problems with him that always ranked higher than merely ripping off you-know-who; but if that's the case, then I once again have nothing left to say. That's been a common response from me a lot this year; but if he is ill, then I can't do anything about that.

    1. Are you being naive, Andrew, or does "hate blog" have a specific and very ugly definition from the world of racism or whatever?

      I mean, I try to hate the videos rather than the man because I don't know Bores personally, but this blog is inescapably about videos that we intensely dislike. I prefer to think it's for fun, and maybe a sort of benevolent Internet policing if it works, but c'mon: if this isn't a hate blog, what is?

      Delete
    2. Not being naive-- I've heard "hate blog" being thrown around by various people, particularly those on YouTube who are defending Chris after releasing that "opening up" video.

      For instance, look at the description of No-Date Gamers' video-- "It's a hoot and a holler when Chris Bores discovers a hate blog!" Even you and I know that Dan isn't hating on Chris just to hate-- he's just trying to be helpful. And yet, Boring Man won't listen.

After all, my favorite film is The Dark Knight for those and many other reasons.

    "One thing about Activision though is that they don't stay too long at the party. They milked the Guitar Hero thing for a while, bowed out at the right time, and are now bringing it back to test the waters again."

      Get Guts and Spring right away in the shop. So many people don't do this for some reason.
      Get Speed Liner.
      Ukemi is very useful as you can negate damage if you time it right and still get Platinums for Damage (which is always 0)
      Despite that, don't try to go for Platinums at the start. Build up your team and skills then replay levels. This is a game all about learning and mastering it, which is why some reviewers hated it.

      If anything else, watch the videos from Saur, and the LP from ChipCheezum.

      That closing joke, "TAMPONS?!?" reminds me of the terrible stand-up comics of the '80s who did the dumb hoarfrosted routine about "I hate when I go shopping and my wife makes me buy her feminine hygiene stuff and I'm embarrassed in front of the cashier." Like they're ashamed to be in a family or something.

      I hope he's a good stepdad or whatever to his girlfriend's kids. For the kids' sake, and because no one should be truly useless.

    2. Also, 3:18. Hilarious blocking error.

    3. It's like he know people are wanting a video but he is too lazy to do so he dig through his closet and "hey that's my fanny pack, it's reviewable right?"

    4. It's official. He no longer gives a fuck what anyone thinks of him.

    5. Also, if he does take that fanny pack to a convention, I hope a bunch of Bronies do come and shit all over his amiibos.

    1. Was just going to post this. It's their second since the ghost hunting one.

    2. The way Chris delivered that first line still makes Tommy Wiseau look convincing to me. "Hi babe, I've something for you!"

    3. Those faces are also unintentionally frightening. I certainly hope his girlfriend's children find him more approachable than I do with that face at the 8-minute mark or so. "Why, Lisa, why WHY?!"
