Funny thing happened on Monday. Chris unlisted his Tales of Zestiria video and let his entire channel see the incompetence. Yet, there were people that said it was good. Are standards that low? Are people willing to forgive a “review” where he only plays a few hours of a game that can go over 60? Barely scratching the surface or going into the more complex mechanics? Are people THIS dumb?
So… I asked them. I asked them in the comments why they find this acceptable, and to my surprise, the comment went through. Yeah, I wasn’t blocked. When it went through, I added a line telling Bores that if he deletes this, he is only proving my point. Unsurprisingly, he deleted it the first chance he got. Thankfully, I screen capped it.
I left a few more comments, most of them gone now. You can see them on this Imgur page provided by Hunter the Hunter.
Safe to say that Chris still refuses to listen to any form of criticism. He’d rather stay in his little bubble, sticking his fingers in his ears and blame everything on “haters” or “stupid kids”. Ironic since the latter is the majority of his audience… He really should watch the South Park episode on the dangers of “safe spaces”.
On Thursday he posted something he hasn’t done in a while. A contest! *sighs* Fuuuuuck.
Yeah, it’s another “Pick Me”, but with Bores pulling an extra scummy move.
This “contest” involves the site Leaptrade.com. Didn’t he already do something involving this site? *looks through archives* He did! He “reviewed” the site back in April. But… it’s not on his channel anymore. Why is he deleting so many videos lately? Is there something he wants to hide? I can understand deleting the Leonard Nimoy tribute since it would expose him as an inconsiderate asshole, but the others like the LootCrate video and the Leaptrade “review” were boring and harmless. I will never understand his thought process…
Anyway, this new “contest” requires you to sign up for Leaptrade using his specific referral code then to write “Pick Me” in the comments. What’s the prize? A free game. What game? He doesn’t say! For all you know, he’ll be giving out Sonic Boom or Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, something really shitty.
So what’s the “scummy move”? See, when a Leaptrade member refers someone to the site and gets them to sign up, they get a $5 credit. … YEP, this whole “contest” is nothing more than “Give me money you stupid kids!”
Though, I don’t think Bores thought this through. In order for him to get the $5 credit, not only do they have to sign up with the referral link, but also trade in a game. My informant found this info and I believe Bores only saw “$5 if you refer friends” and is exploiting his subscribers in the hopes of getting lots of credits. Hopefully the parents of the kids don’t let them trade in their games…
Yeah… even Chris’ claim of “giving back to the fans” has underhanded ideals to it. How is nobody noticing this but me?
No video Friday, but we’ve got one today on Saturday. How strange.
It’s a “review” of Star Wars Battlefront. Not sent to him by GotGame, but by Vidfall.com, which he mentioned multiple times in various “I got a new amiibo” videos. Well, one of them now, I know there was one where he bragged about getting Olimar but that seems to be gone as well. Seriously, what are you doing Chris?
As a reminder, Vidfall is some site where you watch videos to get “deals”. It seems kind of shady to be honest, perfect for Bores who can only get deals with shady companies since his name is mud.
Onto the video!
But first, the description.
For once, he actually says this is a sponsored video. About fucking time. Not like the video will be any good but at least he finally learned to list that something is sponsored.
“Today I'm looking at the controversial Star Wars Battlefront” Controversial? What’s controversial about it? The only thing I saw people get angry about was the shitty season pass (“Buy this $60 game, and now buy this $50 DLC pre-order with little knowledge about what you’ll get”) but the game itself has been mostly mixed.
The description also mentions he’s working on the next History of Video Games. So 3-4 months after the last one. Considering how he’ll probably only cover one topic again, this shit will never be finished.
Wait, I just realized. Battlefront isn’t on PS3 or 360, it’s only PS4, Xbone and PC. Meaning… Bores finally has a next gen console! Why did it take this long? Shouldn’t someone who has a job “reviewing” games have the next gen consoles around launch?
No timestamps today. Video is unscripted.
We open to IG in his room and he holds up a PS4 copy of the game. So he’s got a PS4 now, could have used that before but apparently ghosts are more important or something. Then he goes on a long spiel about Vidfall and how great they are. Chris, Chris, you save the commercial for the end of the video. When JonTron or The Completionist or Peanut Butter Gamer have a sponsored video, they save the commercial for the end (they also put way more effort into their videos but that’s because they actually care about what they do, unlike Bores)
Also, he mentions in the description that the captured footage was corrupted. Why didn’t you just use the PS4 Share feature? Are you not aware it exists?
“I’ve been hearing a lot of bad things about this game” That reason likely being “It’s crap compared to Battlefront 2” but since this is Bores, he has no idea what that actually is.
He says he likes, it claims there’s “not much story”. Maybe you should play past the tutorial since the footage makes it clear he barely played it. You have to stop doing that.
“This one is all about the online experience” That you never talk about. Why do people take you seriously again?
“You can see it’s trying to rival things like Call of Duty and Modern Warfare” That’s the same fucking franchise! You could have at least said “Call of Duty and Battlefield” … Wait, that would mean knowing what Battlefield is. My mistake.
“Set in the Star Wars universe” What gave that away?
He calls it a first person shooter. There’s a guy on the screen, it’s third-person. Learn the difference.
“Of course you can play from… uh, there’s all different kind of characters you can play from” Thanks for giving away this video isn’t scripted! You can’t do unscripted work Chris! Also, “play from”. Don’t you mean “play as”? I never hear anyone say “In Super Smash Bros, you can play from Mario or Link”
Anyway, he brings up how you can play as Darth Vader, or Palpatine or Boba Fett. Not quite, those only work in special dedicated modes or events. Most of the time you’re playing as the character you create, who he calls a “random rebel soldier”. Yeah, it’s clear he barely played this. He doesn’t even seem to tackle the online modes.
He mentions the vehicles, says he liked the Speeder Bikes, blah blah blah. Graphics graphics graphics. Chris’ old crutch when it’s clear he has no idea what to say, just talk about the graphics.
“If you’re a Call of Duty fan” Ugggggh.
He brings up he was playing the Deluxe Edition and comments that he doesn’t know the difference between that and the regular version. THEN RESEARCH IT YOU FUCKING LAZY FUCK! For the record, the Deluxe Edition just has a few extra weapons and emotes. Not really worth the extra $10.
And we end on more Vidfall shilling. You can tell Chris wants sweet deals like Audible or Crunchyroll, but won’t get them because he’s a lazy inconsiderate asshole.
Not much to say about this one… it’s nothing.
I really should get started on the Year End List.
