A Carry Bag... How Low Can This Go?

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but as per usual, my writing relies on Bores, and he has posted jack and shit.

After that painful Donkey Kong video:
The week of July 27th gave us… nothing. Period. No videos, no posts on his site, no Facebook or Twitter posts. Complete radio silence. He always had a bad habit of doing this, but I would hope that keeping a schedule would mean providing excuses for missing deadlines. Apparently that’s too optimistic.

The week of August 3rd did see two videos.
First one was more fucking Skylanders. I didn’t bother.
Though he did say something in the comments that bugged me (thanks to my informant for finding it). Someone said they hope this is the last Skylanders game as they feel the franchise is being milked (I agree). Bores responded (and I‘m paraphrasing) “Activision doesn’t stay too long at the party. They milked Guitar Hero for a while, bowed out at the right time, and are bringing it back to test the waters” *siiighs* You ignorant fucker.

Activision didn’t stop Guitar Hero because it was the “right time”, they did it because the market was flooded with this crap and nobody was buying it. The last game, Warriors of Rock, BOMBED, selling 86k units in its first week. There is no way to spin that into a positive (Guitar Hero III sold 1.5 million in its first week). Do you know who was responsible for that market flood? Activision! They notoriously released 5 Guitar Hero games in 2010 (6 if you count Band Hero), combined with Rock Band and other companies attempts at getting that market, the rhythm game genre completely collapsed.
As for “testing the waters”, they’re doing it as cheaply as possible. Guitar Hero Live will only have guitar (if you want drums, go to Rock Band 4) and is using live-action FMV instead of animating their own character models. What is this, 1994?
Maybe if you took your head out of Bobby Kotick’s ass for one second, you’d realize Activision are full of crap!

Moving on. Second video was an interview he did with a local radio show about his stupid ghost stuff. It’s funny really. If someone wants to do an interview about Irate Gamer, you clam up and hide. If someone wants to talk about your stupid ghost stuff, you won’t shut up. Nobody cares Bores, ghosts aren’t real! It’s even reflected in the views and ratings. Low views even by his standards, and so many dislikes. Maybe you should make a second channel for this crap, since nobody wants to see it. Oh wait, he tried that with Skylanders and failed. Nothing stops this train!

Onto now, the week of August 10th. No video on Tuesday… smooth.
But he did post something on Thursday.

*reads title* “KP Sling Review Goes Wrong - Comic Con Carry Bag” … Really? Have we seriously gotten this low? You’re talking about a bag now? You dedicated an entire video to a bag. I am just stunned. What’s next, a video where you “review” a lamp?
Also, “Review Goes Wrong”. Oh no, this is going to be like the video intercom “review”, where the “going wrong” was just stupid bits involving his toys.
Reading the description, it turns out this is on Kickstarter and he provided a link to it. Once again, major double standards from Bores. “Kickstarter should only be used for educational purposes” What is educational about this bag?! Just admit you were wrong and you only bashed Kickstarter because James Rolfe was in a vulnerable place.

Let’s start the video.

Video opens. He apologizes for the delay, saying his “fatherly duties” (girlfriend’s kids) and the upcoming school year kept him from new videos. Wow, an actual excuse for once. Nothing bad to say there.
“All the comic con events” You do realize there’s more than “comic book conventions” out there right? Hell, I’m pretty sure anime conventions outnumber comic book conventions now. There’s toys, video games, and even dedicated franchises like Star Trek, Doctor Who, and Power Rangers. All get their own cons. I’m just saying.
He opens one pouch and takes out one of his cameras. “Film all sorts of crazy shenanigans” What you do barely qualifies as “shenanigans”, they wouldn’t even register on the chart.
Oh and he brings up that he filmed Jason David Frank, showing that clip again. Yes, we know, you paid JDF to let him film you. You’re not fucking special, anyone can do that, the man’s a god damn attention whore and has a notably bad reputation with the fan community. Of course you don’t know that because like so many others, your PR knowledge is stuck in 1994.

Then he takes out a Mechakoopa plushie. Why?
“To throw at people” …. You’re not funny.
Then he takes out a copy of his Pursuit of the Paranormal DVD, then suddenly a red filter with the words “Cheap Plug” flashing. … My god you have no shame. Gross.
Then a copy of a Monster High book. Don’t take your girlfriend’s kids stuff for your videos. It feels crass.
Then a copy of Everybody Poops. I refer to above.

So yeah, this is the entire video. He takes random shit out of the bag. All that was supposed to be in one pouch, even though it’s blatantly obvious that he edited it all together.

In another pouch, he takes out three amiibo, one of his Minion Megabloks (boy he’s really getting his money’s worth from these) and some of the girlfriend’s kids’ toys (MLP, Strawberry Shortcake, Tinkerbell). Just stop…
Then he takes out a copy of his first DVD, and more “Cheap Plug”. Even if you trying to do this ironically, it’s not funny. It’s more desperate.

Then he takes out a magnifying glass to “look at this pouch a little closer”. … I get the feeling he made this video for his girlfriend’s kids. That magnifying glass bit felt like something out of a PBS Kids show. Plus it would explain why he has all their toys and books.
The “closer look” is just him saying “here’s the inside” and moving on.

Then the third pouch, which has toilet paper, a toothbrush, deodorant, his 3DS (put that in your pocket) and Q-tips. He wants to put his “bust of Atlas” in the bag (“LOOK AT MY COOL STATUE”), brings up a “secret” compartment and finds tampons, complete with OTT mugging. Then he takes out a sword, by which he picks it up off the floor and films it to make the bag look infinite, and goes off to kill the person that did this.
EDIT: I just realized, his "bust of Atlas" isn't even a bust at all. It's a full-on statue. A bust would just be his head and chest, but he has limbs. That's a statue. I really shouldn't be surprised Bores doesn't know the difference.

Once again, this was not a review. Much like the video intercom, he barely touches on the bag itself. He doesn’t actually do anything with it. He doesn’t wear it (the Kickstarter shows you can), he doesn’t mention if it can be adjusted for bigger or smaller framed people, nor if it’s easy to carry, or how much weight it can hold.
But no, it's a video made to tell one joke. For three minutes. Holy crap how bankrupt is that?
And people in the comments are eating this shit up! How can you not see this?! What is the appeal?! Where is the joke?! Just… why?!

I don’t think he’s going to post anything today so I’m putting this up. Who knows when I’ll post something again.

Oh and just a reminder. Blip is going down next Thursday (August 20th). This is the last chance to see certain IG videos before they go away. Like Sonic Generations, the original Tekken 6 review, and various original reviews before editing them for YouTube or adding stupid bits. Unless people download them and upload them to various videos sites.

122 comments:

  1. I think it's fair to say at this point that Bores is now the definition of becoming a parody of oneself. Also, seeing as how it was most likely his girlfriend's kids who put some of those things in his bag (in the skit, not in real life), I'm sure that his girlfriend will appreciate the mental image of him coming after her kids with a sword over something so petty.

    3. I just wish all those missing ICBINAVGN videos were still around, which included George Wood's idiotic Star Wars Lucasarts trilogy 'reviews' (actually just tips on how to beat certain levels followed by an incredibly vague and brief summary) and the 100th episode which combined iJustine's stupid Portal 2 Let's Play and Mike Matei's horrendous Minecraft brainfart which he thankfully learned from.

  5. I at least hope that Live can rekindle the feelings I got when I played the first game in 2005; as there are a few tracks that might be fun with many others as new and returning DLC. As for the live-action crowds: just going to throw on my Pink Floyd shirt and see what I can do (the new controller reminds me of that one Guitar Freaks before the trend exploded). I'm no Syd Barrett or David Gilmour. Still, reviewing a backpack is pretty sad; even for Boring Man. I can't even include this on my tentative worst moments of the year. The ghost bits still prove he's really no Egon Spengler, especially with how putting that movie against the Pokémon X and Y launch made it a bigger bomb than Dreamworks' Turbo. Well, I'll be periodically checking today for anything else; but I'm not being too hopeful. Now, back to breeding Johto starters in Y while I wait for the Strongest Mega Evolution Act III tomorrow. Have mixed feelings toward it being dubbed, to be frank (the animation and battles in those specials are great; but the story and characters are rather lacking; to the point where I'm glad Act IV will be the last one, Malva and a potential new Pokémon be damned).

  6. Come to think of it, if Bores really cares about his stepchildren (and for all his faults I'm sure he does) then he should know how much potential damage he's doing to them by continuing to make shitty videos and unoriginal content that may lead to them getting bullied. Although I guess barely anyone watches his shit these days compared to when he was at his 'peak' so it doesn't matter.

  10. So, Chris, since we all know that you do read this blog and these comments, I should tell you that I signed out of my account and noticed this comment on your video that you posted:

    http://imgur.com/ck8aTJC

    First of all, let me just congratulate you for finally having the balls to recognize my existence with your own account rather than with your mommy mask. If you were respectable, I'd say that you've truly earned my respect with that action. Now, you have the FBI monitoring my activity to watch me cross a line, do you? That line wouldn't happen to be calling your videos and rude behavior towards people bad and exposing your lies to your fans, would it? If it is, then sorry, but I don't think the FBI is really helping you with shit on that. And if you're referring to tweets like this:

    http://imgur.com/uicbInX

    Then I'm also sorry to say that you really had that coming for how ignorant and carelessly you behave on various social media outlets (even it was extreme of me, I stopped saying things like that, even on here, months ago). Yeah, I'm sure the FBI is going to help out a lying, pathetic nobody on the Internet like you, especially if you pretend to be your own mom to call haters mental and make claims about how they have family problems, need serious help and stalk you. You have me shaking with fear. I'll have you know that I have never been convicted of a felony, graduated 13th in my class of over 400 students, dropped my IEP years ago and have no idea where you live or what your phone number is. Also, the FBI probably would care even less if they saw that you've blocked me on Twitter and on your real and mommy mask accounts on YouTube, making directly harassing you virtually impossible. Unless I come out and say something like that I am coming to your house to shoot you, your girlfriend and your girlfriend's kids, you have absolutely nothing to use against me. Have a nice day, Chris.

    P.S. I hope you will be a good father to those kids. Not saying that you won't be. Just saying that I hope you will.

  13. Hey BatDan, just want to say that Activision release Guitar Hero 5, Guitar Hero: Smash Hits, Band Hero, DJ Hero, Guitar Hero: Metallica and Guitar Hero: Van Halen in 2009, not in 2010.

    Damn, that's really a lot of games in one year when I mention all of them. No wonder why Warriors of Rock and DJ Hero 2 both have very little attention in the following year.

    2. Yeah, nothing can make audiences tired of something quicker than saturating the market with it. This policy is a key reason why my opinion of Activision has gone down considerably in recent years. I'll be fine if Live is good and they'll have healthy amounts of DLC to make up for it not being compatible with past songs.

    1. Realistically, I don't see any way Trank's career survives this one. At any rate, I'm sure the main cast are very eager to get this whole fiasco behind them.

    2. It's kinda sad. I really enjoyed Chronicle, then found out that Max Landis is kind of a douchebag who acts self important because of his family, so I was hoping that Trank could at least provide something that would be better than Tim Story's outings.

      Then the stories of his ego on the FF set got out, and it supposedly led to his getting let go of the Star Wars spinoff he was set to direct. Now he's saying that there's a cut of FF that is a million times better than the theatrical cut that no one will see, failing to realize that his movie on a fundamental level had a fucking bad story.

    3. He has disowned the picture in a tweet people spread after Fox tried to supress it. Still working on the Roger Corman version as well .

    7. It now has the biggest drop of any Marvel-related movie ever now that the full weekend estimates have come for Straight Outta Compton. Looks like we won't be seeing any more Fantastic Four movies where Sue listens to Portishead and Dr. Doom is a cyberterrorist who listens to classical music and plays Counter-Strike in his spare time. I imagine that characterization is gonna be pretty dated in 10 years in the same way that Story's films are now.

    10. @Huner the Hunter,

      I think "Clobbering Time" was said by Ben Grimm's older brother, not father, I think.

      There was also a scene where young Ben & Richard hooked up a bunch of N64's together to try to create a computer powerful enough to calculate their teleportation device's data. Apparently, Trank didn't realize that when people did that with PS2 and Xbox (360)'s, it's because they actually had computer processors in them, not just because of "Many systems = magic computer".

      Least that's what I heard from someone else, after Trank got fired from Star Wars, I decided I wasn't gonna spend my money on that in the theaters unless it got really good press. Now I'm not going to at all.

      Delete
    11. Speaking of Star Wars, Colin Trevorrow has been hired to direct Episode IX.

      Delete
    12. @biznizz Well no matter who beat Ben up as a child, it's still a stupid way of giving him his catchphrase (unless that's how he got it in the comics, which I wouldn't know very much about). Hell, the toy giving him the catchphrase in the 2005 movie seems less contrived.

      Also, I guess it could make sense for N64's to do magical things that 360s and PS2's can't despite their technological inferiority. Nintendo is probably the most magical game company on Earth, and the one I have the most hope for. (Seriously though, he was stupid to think "many systems = magic computer").

      Also, I still can't get over the fact that Dr. fucking Doom has a goddamn Steam account.

      Delete
    13. The teacher in the beginning of the movie is a total asshole. Before Reed presents himself to him at the science fair, he said to him "Hello Reed, shall I call the fire department?"

      What the hell kind of teacher would say that to a student?! He's a total dick for saying that. And after Reed's presentation did show a bit of teleportation but it damages the basketball court hoop in the process, the teacher instantly disqualifies him. Again, he's an asshole! He said that this is a science fair, not a magic show. So what? Doesn't Reed's presentation being able to create a blast that would blow everyone's minds off in real life amazes you at the slightest?

      So after Reed is disqualified, Susan's father, oh I mean ADOPTIVE father (Yeah I hate the fact that Susan is an adopted sister of Johnny, NOT biological sister.) walks over to Reed saying that he's impressed and wants him to work for him at his multibillion dollar company. Yes people. A head scienctist who works for a multibillion dollar company AND the US military is impressed by Reed's work and NOT a college teacher.

      Another thing I don't like is how Susan Storm got her powers. She didn't even go to Planet Zero with Reed, Johnny, Ben and Victor. At least when the cosmic explosion happened, Johnny and Ben got their powers by getting hit by lava and rocks. But how does Susan get hers? Her computer exploded in front of her. So apparently she got her telekinesis and invisibility powers via a Windows computer system! That technically she's not the Invisible Woman, but the Technological Woman. And how does Reed got his strecthing powers? He didn't even got hit by anything!

      Delete
    14. @Sovereign. There's a lot that didn't make sense to me about that plot thread when I saw the film; though I think the way the teacher behaved would personally be grounds for firing him by most school boards. Oh, and to further the irony; he was played by Dan Castellaneta in a bit of idiocy that would rival his role as Homer Simpson (who once caused a meltdown in a simulator containing no nuclear material and notably set cereal and milk on fire). I also think that stack of N64s making a jerry-rigged matter transporter is probably going to be very dated as time goes on (though it did instill memories of when I played some of my favorite games on the system for the first time). The whole thing just seemed like an after-school special with a budget of $122 million. There was so much CGI in the final battle in Planet Zero; I could have sworn I was playing a game of Marvel VS Capcom! A might underwhelming when the summer movie season began with how well they were able to do the motion capture for Ultron and the whole final battle in Sokovia.

      Delete
    15. Now that the actuals are in; it's official: Fantastic Four can now stand to lose almost $100 million, now that Straight Outta Compton has claimed the top spot. Least I can take comfort in the fact that my favorite Pixar film; The Incredibles, can pass for a good movie about the Four until Marvel gets the rights back for another possible reboot (by the way, The Incredibles II logo just got unveiled at D23, should be fun).

    3. Also, he says it goes "semi wrong." First off, that term sounds stupid, and second, how does anything even come close to going wrong within the review? He didn't even find one of his stupid toys in a random place and react with forced anger while using stock audio of an orchestra strike sound.

      Delete
  21. On a sort of unrelated note: Nostalgia Critic reviewed Pixels. Yes, he does the same thing he did with Jurassic World and reenacted scenes rather than showed clips, but I think it's fair to say that being an Adam Sandler movie, the clips wouldn't have added much and actually deserved not to be shown this time. And Adam Sandler would definitely try to get it taken down to make people forget for sure if it had clips. I still can't believe Bores was pathetic and desperate enough to try and suggest and celebrate that movie.

Yeah, I think Doug's brand of DYI special effects and skits would actually be an improvement over CGI that looks like Asylum vomit and the creator of Pac-Man getting eaten by his own creation (that alone convinced me not to see the movie; instead opting to watch Wreck-It Ralph again and vow to see Ant-Man instead.).

  22. The description. "Here is my newest product review. This one is a bit more laid back than the other ones but some fancy editing action towards the end of the review. More IG episodes soon. Been very busy. Enjoy!" It's the newest product review...until the next product review, anyway. Also, how is a review laid back? Your reviews are lazy enough as it is. Fancy editing? Are you kidding me? So it's laid back, but fancy editing action toward the end of the review? What kind of grammar is that? Is he implying that it's laid back until action at the end makes it less laid back? And that's just the description.

    1. He's also making it seem like people only watch his videos for the editing. Knowing his fans, they probably do watch his videos for the editing.

    2. No doubt he's trying to hide his incompetence (I really like to use that word, don't I?) with those special effects to make people like him. It's really pathetic!

    3. Well, I seem to recall how "his mother" told one of my friends, a Nick intern, how Bores could "out-edit him blindfolded", whatever the hell that's supposed to mean.

  23. Off-topic : The Resident Evil 2 remake has been canceled . This is why people hate you, Capcom.

    1. You might be confusing it with the fan-made remake.
      That's cancelled because the real thing is happening.

      Delete
    2. Shit, I probably have. Thank you Dan. While my opinion of the company is still not what it once was; I am at least glad the remakes are helping reintroduce the survival-horror elements after RE6 and parts of RE5 got a might too action-heavy.

    1. Seeing all those upvotes, and the replies, has made me hopeful that IG's rise in support since the opening-up video has, for the most part, evaporated. (Though that could just be down to the sort of people that watch NC's videos, but hey.)

    2. I think Chris promoting that movie in the Donkey Kong review has now officially backfired; as it stands to lose around $56-$78 million amid competition from Ant-Man and Mission Impossible Rogue Nation alone. I still think that movie could have had Giygas, Kefka Palazzo and Zygarde and it would still be unwatchable because of how shoddy the effects are. I mean, this is a summer where we've had the amazing motion capture work on Ultron; a bug's-eye view of crime, and Tom Cruise suspended outside a C-17 at high altitude, so would it have killed them to put a bit more effort into ANYTHING about the movie, let alone the CGI?

    3. There needs to be an app for creating an Irate Gamer episode.

    4. Their was, but it took years to make and was a crappy redskin of another app. Only lasted a month before it got taken down, I heard...

    5. You clearly didn't see Nostalgia Critic's Pixels review.

      Delete
    6. Here's how the IG app would work!
      First option in the app say "alright gaming gurus" or make an obvious green screen effect?
      Second option review a shitty game like AVGN, or bash a great game for dumb reasons?
      Third option make an unfunny food reference about the game, or make a completely random reference that has nothing to do with the game.
      Fourth option, bash the games intro or bash the games story?
      Fifth option Make random special effects or a random reference?
      Sixth Option (conclusion) bash the games ending, or destroy the game?
      I want to see what you guys would choose for those options if there's an IG app like that. There will never be one like that but let's pretend there is.

  25. On a somewhat unrelated note: Wreck-It Ralph 2 has been revealed by Rich Moore at D23, with the principal cast members returning to their roles. Anyone have any potential new video game characters they'd like to cameo? My shortlist is the following: Giygas (Earthbound), Giovanni (Pokémon Red and Blue), Kefka Palazzo (Final Fantasy IV), Ganon (The Legend of Zelda); and in honor of Satoru Iwata, King Dedede (Kirby). You see, Pixels? THIS is how you do a retro gaming-themed movie.

    2. I believe the makers of the first film promised to have Mario appear if a sequel was made. I could be wrong about this, though.

      I also hope Dr. Wily can show up this time.

    3. All good choices. I'd love to see Niko and Roman Belic make a guest appearance (with the later ideally constantly pestering Sgt. Calhoun to go bowling with him)

  26. Mine includes:
    Solid Snake (Metal Gear)
    Prince Marth (Fire Emblem)
    Master Chief (HALO)
    And Scorpion and/or Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat)

    1. Those last ones might work, since Kano was in the opening scene of the first (he was just credited as "Cyborg" because of the rights being owned by their rivals at Warner Brothers; who bought the rights after Midway folded in 2008).

    2. If he didn't have that robot arm, he'd totally be Kano.

  27. He just posted ANOTHER Amiibo video, with ANOTHER plug for VidFall.

    1. Goddamn, what do they see in this guy? Also, he was a little late to talk about the Retro 3-Pack, as all the pre-orders are currently sold out on GameStop's website. Congratulations, Chris. Once again, you prove how worthless your videos are by delivering old news that everyone not living under a rock already knows. BatDan, if you're going to post, you should probably post now.

      Oh, and that chuckle he made about the release date being on 9/11 just seemed like a pathetic attempt at comedy.

      Delete
    2. Sorry, what I meant to say at the end of that last comment was "of course he would find the release date being September 11th funny." Because, you know, he has a shit sense of comedy.

      Also, I'm surprised he didn't mention things like the new machine that's basically an Action Replay for amiibos, Dr. Mario (most likely) being a Target exclusive, or the Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival cards. I guess this makes his video even more pointless, then.

      Delete
    3. And I'm sorry if I'm being nit picky, but why is he acting like only GameStop is selling the next wave of amiibos? It's not like they're not sold at any other store. Hell, Target said that they were going to release details of amiibo pre orders (if there are any, that is). If Vidfall has a deal or something with GameStop and Bores has to mention them being sold only at GameStop in order to get his free Olimar, that honestly wouldn't surprise me. He really has become that much of a money whore.

  28. Off topic: Activision announced Skylanders Battlecast. Great. More franchise milking.

    Bascially, Battlecast is a brand new trading card battle game. But you don't play the battle with the cards on the table like Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon. Instead you have to download the app on your iPad, use the iPad to scan the card and then you do battle on your iPad.

    Where do I even begin?

    1. Why must you still use an iPad to scan the card to do battle? What's wrong with just doing card battles on your freaking table?

    2. So you get the card by scanning. Then that means if your friends have a card you don't have, you can ask your friend "Can I borrow your card?". You take it, scan it with your iPad and the card is officially yours even though you didn't spend money on it. Isn't that idiotic?

    3. Why must people still need an iPad to actually play the card game? What happens when while you're playing, the battery runs out and you sadly don't have your own charger with you before going outside or to your friend's house?

    This idea will NOT sell well.

    1. And I WOULD say prepare for a flood of fawning videos from Chris, except I'm not sure he even owns an iPad. (Though it would be entirely in character for him to shell out for one solely to play that game.)

    2. Skylanders has just been a shameless cash cow since the first game was conceived. Bores loves the games anyway because making videos about them gives him lots of views and ad revenue. End of story.

    3. @itsmrben He does have an iPad. In his Robocop NES review, Evil Gamer uses an iPad to control the Hal minions.

    4. Sounds like they took the core concept of the HyperScan (card playing scan) and added their shitty aspects to it to make an unholy abomination.

    6. I was just about to say that Boring Man used an iPad in his pathetic story arc. If you look at the way he was using it, there must be a Winter Games app.

    7. I really wish that Activision sold Spyro to Sony because his name was tainted by Activision's greedy hands who wants to use his name for a series shameless cash cow.

      Seriously though, his desperation really shines through near the end of the video

    3. How much you wanna bet once it's on Amazon, he's going to write a positive review for it?

    4. Is he going back to the Dark Chapters or is it something completely new? His videos are too unhealthy for me at this point. I could barely get past the first 3 minutes of his Duck Tales review.

    5. No, it's about his ghost crap.

    6. I hope he's not gloating (public or not) about having a book done before James Rolfe as some sort of "victory". As for the subject, the description states that it's about his studies into the world of the paranormal. He also asks for "fan help". He claims he has been working "so hard" on this book for "2 long years". At least he acknowledges he is bad at Photoshop, which is why he acknowleges he needs help with the cover (involving a doorway and some sort of "shadow person" coming out of the doorway with energy around it). He promises "some type of compensation", though he states "bills are kind of tight right now." Ironic how he states he has been "working so hard" on this book with research and the "psychology of a ghost", and "hours and hours of editing". How does he explain HOVG? Honestly, he should just focus entirely on the paranormal and rid himself of the IG moniker (as for the bills? Sell those damn NES games BEHIND YOU). He also provides a link to an event he'll be attending on 11/7 regarding paranormal speakers. Aside from proofreading, he claims the book is pretty much done, claiming he has been "tightlipped" about it. At least he acknowledges the channel has been dwindling (though he does not state why) while saying he has been trying to "pop out as much videos as he can", saying that it's "getting hard".

      You know how you could've solved this dilemna?NOT MAKE AS MUCH VIDEOS! You could've said you were taking a "hiatus", or decreased production gradually, kinda like what the AVGN did in regards to the production of the AVGN movie. But of course, you don't claim to be like the AVGN, and his responsible work ethic.

      Overall, the book can't be as bad as his videos, given that either the proofreading will make his book better/dissaude him from releasing it...or it won't ever be published.

      Delete
    7. Sidenote: I checked a few comments, with one suggesting a cover made naturally rather than Photoshop, with charcol pencils to catch the eye of the customer. IG responded with "good idea!" At least he isn't competely combative with suggestions.

      Delete
    8. As grammatically incoherent as his video descriptions are, I can only imagine how this book is going to read.

      Seriously though, you can't help but feel sorry for him. He's teetering on 40, and this is what he has done with his life. Granted, his emotional maturity is stunted, but c'mon man! It might be time for him to find a real job.

    9. "People who don't like me, please be kind."

      Welcome to the Internet, Bores! :D

      "I worked so hard on it. Make it easy to read and easy to understand."

      Judging by the rushed description you printed on the back of your latest DVD, I doubt it.

      “The 4th season of the Irate Gamer Show is taken to a brand new level as the Shadow Overlord threatens the entire world. The Irate Gamer and his friends will try to stop him through the use the inferno force, help from ROB the Robot and battle Zords to the world safe from evil!”

    10. Tyroil Smoochie-Wallace, Chris does have a full time job from everything I can tell. Initially he did quit his job to do Youtube but then he started working again. As well as doing those ghost tours for money. Youtube is only supplemental income.

  30. Hopefully there will be a post tomorrow.
    Got back from a convention. Tired. Don't want to deal with Bores' bullshit right now.
