Year End List! The Top 20 Worst IG Moments of 2015

We’re about to leave 2015, and venture forth another year. I did NOT expect how this year turned out for Bores.
After 2013 had barely anything to talk about and 2014 was a struggle to even get 10 moments, 2015 saw a massive increase in Chris’ output. So much so, I managed to narrow it down to 20! Take a seat, it’s going to be a long read.

Wait, Bores posted a video on the 30th? Another board game review? No thanks.
I will mention people HATED the video. 55 likes to 125 dislikes. Likely due to being a “sponsored review” for that MAGE company he first talked about back in May. Why would MAGE want Chris Bores of all people to shill their crap?

Anyway, onto the list!

20. Deleting videos for some reason

This year saw the most output from Chris, by far. Yet you wouldn’t think that now as there’s quite a few missing videos, especially when you consider his promised schedule and the dates no longer line up.
While looking through the channel, and my blog posts, I noticed there’s quite a few missing videos. A “review” of the site Leaptrade, his Lootcrate unboxing, some bloopers, a video about his “best moments”, his Kid Icarus Let’s Play (wait what?), his Top 5 E3 games (what the hell?), a video about getting an Olimar amiibo (that also shilled Vidfall) and some update videos. I’m just curious why Chris felt these needed to be deleted. Was there something in them he wanted to hide? Maybe the mention of his dead friend in the Kid Icarus LP? The only deleted video that makes sense was his immensely insensitive Leonard Nimoy tribute, where he tried to do a heartfelt tribute to him, only to ruin it by demanding people subscribe to his channel (as well as monetizing the video… gross)
This wouldn’t be the first time Chris deleted videos for seemingly no reason. Back in 2007 he deleted that “Thank you” video where he mentioned his 20 years of gaming (still hilarious), and apparently there was a trailer for his Super Mario Bros 2 review where he said “Mario, your next” (not “you‘re”), but the only source I have is the Third Rate Gamer’s word.
He also got rid of the video promoting his game (the one where he said it‘s like Angry Birds), and another video where he “thanked” some of his more notable detractors for sucking his dick after they cried about James Rolfe’s “e-begging”. Why are you so delete happy Chris? You can’t hide stuff that’s been posted on the internet.

19. Four Parts of History, somehow no progress

We saw a massive boost in History of Video Games episodes this year. The series has been going for over six years now and around half them were made this year. And yet, there’s been no progress. In six years and 10 parts, he’s only on Intellivision, that’s barely out of the 80’s. Yes, there were Intellivision games released up to 1983 (and some were released afterwards) but it was released in 1979 and his next topic is just now starting the 80’s. Expect bias considering how he slobbers all over that decade.
But really, nothing is “educational” about this series. He mentions some facts he read off Wikipedia, and fills the rest with terrible Family Guy style humor. There’s no substance, I don’t understand how this has a following. I really hope college courses aren’t using his material again (I read years ago that a college course used his early videos, though that could have been fake)
If I had to pick a worst video, it would probably be Part 9 (Atari 2600 in 1978-80), mostly for that abysmal Superman joke. That almost made me quit, it was that bad.

18. It’s Star Wars season, better shill a site!

After two years on the market, Bores finally talked about a PS4 game. Well, a multi-platform game but he played the PS4 version. Star Wars Battlefront.
Of course, he barely talked about the game, playing only the tutorial and a couple multiplayer sessions (and even then I doubt that since the footage quality looks off, which he claims was his capture card but I don’t believe him).
However, this wasn’t a video to talk about Star Wars Battlefront, but to shill a site that’s been giving him free amiibo! Now they give him free games. The desperation is so strong it actually smells.

17. Scrooge McDuck sets the stage.

After initially claiming retirement, Chris revealed that it was actually a hiatus (learn the difference) and came back to do regular Irate Gamer episodes. However, he was going to do things differently, and his first “review” back set the tone in the worst way possible.
Instead of covering actual bad games, he decided to spend time bashing classics, crying about how hard they are, and not actually giving any insight or even trying to review the game. Relying more on Family Guy shit.
DuckTales showcased the horrors we would see throughout the year. Pointless nitpicks, poor skill, awful jokes, all of Chris’ worst traits magnified to eleven. It’s almost like he wants to be a parody of himself, basically turn into the Third Rate Gamer or Irritated Gamer.

16. “It’s one of my favorites!” “WAAAAH it’s difficult!”

For years, Chris claimed that Kid Icarus is one of his favorite games, and yet in his review he sounds like he despises it. It’s basically just 10 minutes of Chris complaining about how difficult the game is, there’s barely any actual criticism. All topped with him smashing an eggplant on the cartridge in “rage”. Yeah, that’s totally something you’d do to one of your favorites. He tried to clarify he didn’t hate the game in the Let’s Play, but the damage had been done (and the video is gone now so nobody will hear your excuses now, HA!)

15. A Super Smashing Dud

IG’s highest viewed video by far is his review of Super Smash Bros Brawl, at 6.4 million as of this post. Now you’d think that would get Chris to work extra hard on making his review of Super Smash Bros for Wii U special, right? Ha! That would require effort, and Chris believes effort is for losers. Instead, he posted an unscripted ramble that can barely be called a review while pointing his camera at the TV instead of capturing footage. Spending more time shilling his (now dead) amiibo site than actually talking about the game.
There was somehow less effort in his Smash 4 review than there was his Brawl review (and that was already a low-effort waste). I can’t imagine that pleased the people that watched the Brawl video years ago… then again, they likely grew up and moved on.

14. “I don’t have an excuse to destroy the game, better make one up!”

His Spy Hunter “review” was an exercise in padding. How to make 6 minute video without actually saying anything. Then again, DSP is a MASTER at that, he’s able to make 30 minute videos without saying anything.
Still, one thing he got right is that Spy Hunter has no ending, it is a port of an Arcade game that’s meant to suck up quarters and gain high scores, so yeah the game really isn’t meant to end. But Bores said to himself “I have to destroy the game in this video…”, and so he made up an ending where his car falls off a cliff, giving him the excuse to throw the game out the window. You don’t have to destroy the game in every video! In fact, you don’t in some of these videos. Not in DuckTales, Mega Man, Donkey Kong, Kung-Fu, or Castlevania. You’re really inconsistent you know that? At least destroy BAD games!

13. “Imma do a game I already did, my audience won’t notice”

In 2013, Bores reviewed Rayman Legends. It was boring, but not stupid enough to be memorable. He probably hoped everyone forgot because for some inexplicable reason, he reviewed the game again! Somehow worse than before as he once again filmed his TV, and his entire review was nothing more than “Here’s a level, it’s pretty cool, I won’t explain why it’s cool, it just is”.
When people did point out he reviewed it before, he got pissed, put on his mommy mask, and yelled at everyone. Along with yelling at people pointing out that he said “female girls” (you only need to say one of those).

12. “Montages make me hard!”

My god, Chris loved his montages this year. Couldn’t go one video without a short one jammed in there somewhere.
But then he got greedy and started doing crazy long ones. A nearly two minute one in Punch-Out that tries to be like Rocky (and fails because he doesn’t climb the steps of a museum, at least find something similar in Ohio you lazy ass), and a painful one in Castlevania that tries to be like Scooby-Doo (with Bores, Ronnie, and Devil Bores playing fake instruments).
The way Chris promoted the latter on Facebook, does he think that his fans eat this shit up? Is THIS one of the things fans like about his videos? The montages? I really don’t understand his fans…

11. “Kickstarter is awful, wait it’s good for education, wait I get free stuff?”

Chris’ position on Kickstarter is all over the fucking place. The “e-begging spoof” made it sound like he thought it was terrible, but then his “Opening Up” video had him say that Kickstarter should only be used for educational purposes (citing Reading Rainbow’s comeback), which is bizarre as he mentioned Mighty No. 9 on his site being one of the highest funded campaigns and the only thing MN9 can teach is not to trust Keiji Inafune (okay that was more Red Ash but MN9 has kind of under-whelmed me).
But then this year, when he needed content, he began “reviewing” items he got in exchange for promoting their Kickstarters. This included a tabletop RPG from a company that has done like a dozen campaigns (seems fishy) and a carry-on bag. How are these educational Chris? Then again, he has a very skewed idea of what “educational” is, considering History of Video Games and I Rate the 80’s.
Oh, and the board game review I mentioned above also promotes their Kickstarter. Chris, you’d make one hell of a politician if you weren’t so stupid.

10. IG takes the dive into Let’s Plays… and it goes about as well as you think.

I’m surprised Bores didn’t try this YEARS ago, but he finally dipped his toe into the massive Let’s Play ocean. He fucking failed at it of course, but at least he tried.
We managed to get three videos out of him, all based on games he recently “reviewed” (DuckTales, Kid Icarus, and Punch-Out). All are bad in their own different way.
In DuckTales, he stopped early on to find his Mickey Mousecapdes cartridge for some reason, he played the game on Easy, didn’t beat a single level, skipped one because he felt there was “nothing to talk about”, repeated a lot of the same shit from the video, and it was BORING.
In Kid Icarus, it was also boring, but he took time to address why he didn’t bring up the hammers in the actual review, claiming it was “funnier if he didn’t”. Damn it Chris! That excuse didn’t save you with Aladdin, and it won’t save you here! Why do you think it’s funnier NOT to mention important gameplay mechanics? It’s misleading! Don’t you realize you have actual kids watching that believe you? Why are you so dense? Also, the video is gone like I mentioned earlier.
However, I feel the worst is the Punch-Out LP. He pretended like he was playing the game (the footage and his hands clearly didn’t match up), claiming he was doing bad because he was trying to do commentary at the same time (even though he clearly wasn‘t), he made excuses to why he mispronounced names in the review (IT’S HOW I SAID THEM AS A KID, SHUT UP!), there were TWO videos making it extra-boring, and what I feel is the biggest offense, he took up half the screen. Instead of putting his face in the corner, half the screen was just him. That’s a big nooooo in these videos Chris. Especially since you’re not an attractive woman with big tits that is able to get the attention of horny teens (and even then, older, smarter people call them on that bullshit). I get the feeling the Let’s Plays weren’t popular as he hasn’t done one since Punch-Out. Looking at them, the views are abysmal.

9. GIMME AMIIBO!

Chris ignored amiibo during their announcement at E3 2014, writing it off as “kids will like it” (and it was still incredibly hypocritical of him to say that considering his Skylanders obsession). It wasn’t until March 2015 when the craze was in full effect with store exclusives, jacked-up scalper prices and rare ones disappearing that he started talking about them. He mostly just said standard stuff on how they work and rarity and blah blah blah.
The moment I’m including on the list is when he outright demanded to his viewers to give him amiibo for free (with the only “payment” being exposure). Coming from the man that said e-begging is awful and they should just spend money out of their own pocket to get what they want. The hypocrisy was absolutely stunning, and there was at least one person that was stupid enough to do it. Unbelievable isn’t it?

8. “Pixels is totes gonna be a good movie guyz”

Chris brought back the Summer Movie List this year… really late as he only ended up putting seven films on it. The video did contain some casual racism as he complained about Johnny Storm being black in the new Fantastic Four (and that ended up being the least of that train wreck’s problems) but it also contained some major naivety when it came to a certain Adam Sandler movie.
Chris believed that Pixels was going to be a great movie. Just because it had video games. … You are delusional. While it might not have been the worst Sandler movie (it doesn’t have people cheering statutory rape like That’s My Boy), it certainly wasn’t good (unless you’re Movieblob, then it’s Cinematic Hitler). You just let nostalgia blind you once again Chris (just like his Captain EO review, by the way that’s not on the list because it was just dull overall)
In fact, he was so excited for it, that he “reviewed” Donkey Kong to tie-in with the movie’s release. Why?!
You know, Chris hasn’t said anything about the movie since. What did you think of it? Did it live up to your overly-optimistic expectations?
HOLD ON! I was looking over the video list again, and the Top Summer Movies list is also gone! Good fucking lord Chris, stop deleting videos for no reason!
Update: As I was working on this, my informant told me that Bores posted on Twitter that he got Pixels on Blu-Ray for Christmas, saying he’s “one of the few that loved the movie”. Wow… just wow. He really is the Adam Sandler audience, he is that stupid. Or maybe he’s just so blinded by nostalgia that he’ll overlook the movie’s many flaws because “VIDEO GAMES”. This is why nobody will take you seriously as a gamer Chris.

7. HUR HUR HUR KUH-RAZY SPLATOOOOOON!

I… I’m not sure what to say about this one. It was just baffling.
Chris tried to apply a new style to IG Neo, likely inspired by popular YouTubers like Markiplier and JonTron, and it backfired HARD. Utilizing excessive jump cuts, shouting, and humor that’s somehow more random than usual, the result was excessive cringe. Made even worse in that the test subject for this style was Splatoon, an excellent new title that people are still playing online. Of course, he barely played it too. Only completing two levels of the single-player campaign (watch the amiibo section to see proof) and not even touching the multiplayer (the most important aspect). The only reason it isn’t higher on the list is that for once, Bores actually learned his lesson and abandoned this style after this video (at least for game reviews).

6. YOU LIKE KUH-RAZY GAME REVIEW? NOW HERE KUH-CRAZY MOVIE REVIEW!

In another of his many moves to have multiple videos a week, Chris brought back movie reviews. Somehow, he made them even worse. I’m actually impressed that he managed to take his “zooming in on images while I say vague statements about the movie” style and go even lower.
He decided to take the style he established in the Splatoon review, and use it to talk about movies. More excessive jump cuts, more random jokes, and for some reason it would cut to him with a gray-ish filter to do wacky one-liners, or wacky “stunts” like spin around for no reason.
He only did two “reviews” this way, the first on the Poltergeist remake, and the second on Pixar’s Inside Out. The latter stands out as particularly bad as it contains the random spinning, and his attempt at impersonating the five emotions. Well, that and I actually saw Inside Out, I didn’t bother with the Poltergeist remake. He barely talks about the movie, gets things wrong, references events without context, assuming that his viewers already saw the movie. Surprisingly, the fans HATED it.
I can’t confirm it since hasn’t done another movie review, but I suspect he dropped this style. This hyperactive ADD style doesn’t work Chris, at least not for you.

5. “Here’s tech that’s just as cheap and shitty as my show!”

In yet another attempt to have multiple videos a week, Chris began taking offers from shady Chinese companies to “review” tech products. This can only mean GOOD things right?
Yeah, it’s clear Chris has no clue how to review tech. He never goes into technical details like battery life or compatibility, just says if something is cool. Not to mention his attempts at trying to make the videos “wacky”. His “review” of a security system involved him talking to his toys, and saying “Alakazam” to make things disappear. Did a kid write this shit?
These tech reviews just scream “I’m desperate for any views, give me views!” Well… they’re not coming. You only have yourself to blame Chris.

4. Tales of Lazy Half-Assed Not Even Trying

Chris stepped into the wrong territory this year, deciding to review the newest game in the Tales series. That was a huge mistake.
Barely scratching the surface of this massive RPG, he delivered a beyond half-assed “review” that mostly relied on how silly the main character’s name is, and that completely fails as he mispronounces it the entire time. The game has English voice acting, how the hell did you miss that?! Not to mention getting another character’s name completely wrong, which makes me doubt he even touched the game and probably just watched videos of it on YouTube and somehow wasn’t paying attention. Can’t prove it as there’s no watermarks, but I seriously doubt he played it. Not touching the skills system, barely touching the battle system, only saying that “Kingdom Hearts is to blame for action RPGs” even though the Tales series predates it by several years, this was a low effort travesty and GotGame needs to fire his ass for providing such poor content. What is wrong with you GotGame?

3. “Your ‘review’ is as empty as your fanbase. YouTube illneeds a hack such as you”

God damn, his Castlevania review was a mess. I already mentioned the montage but there was a ton of bad stuff along with it. Weird pandering to kids with a modern pop song reference, dumb jokes, more crying about difficulty (IT’S ALL  THE FUCKING SAME), a weird gag involving the magic orbs you get from defeating bosses (or baubles as he believes) which somehow summons Dracula, who he defeats by… turning him into Count Chocula. I will never understand his obsession with these cereal mascots…
It’s lucky that the #2 pick was worse.

2. Blue Bomber “review” is a total bomb

Took some time, but I’ve decided on the worst regular IG episode of the year. Mega Man!
Soooo much wrong with this episode. The “review” was all over the place as he kept cutting to different stages for no reason, he kept using the powers wrong (he didn’t even understand how Guts Man’s power worked until the end), he never got the Magnet Beam, tons of complaining about how hard it is, a montage of him dying in the same exact spot over and over (that’s not entertaining), blatant Game Genie use, never addressing the Yellow Devil (yet he complains about the Copy Robot), possibly stolen footage (it looks different at a couple points), pointlessly destroying posters, and of course, abysmal jokes. Especially the one where he implies that Mega Man rapes Dr. Wily. You can’t do dark humor Chris, stop trying.
I hope hope hope hope HOPE he never does the sequels.

1. Ghosts ghosts ghosts ghosts so much ghosts all the ghosts! BUY MY BOOK!

2015 was the year Chris doubled down hard on the paranormal ghost stuff. The biggest moment by far was the announcement and release of a published book. Ghost Hunting 2.0, named so as he believes it to be a continuation of Grant Wilson’s “Ghost Hunting: True Stories of Unexplained Phenomena from The Atlantic Paranormal Society”. In reality, it’s a badly-written, egotistical mess where Chris jerks himself off over his alleged accomplishments and how he’s soooo smart for using tools that others don’t (or so he believes, there’s hundreds of ghost hunters out there). He claims he got the book proofread, but there’s grammar & spelling errors, and even a major contradiction in the first chapter. On top of that there are cringe worthy pop culture references like Bores comparing himself to Batman fighting the Riddler, with mentions of Scooby-Doo, Slimer (not the Ghostbusters, just Slimer), Freddy Krueger, and a story involving a couple were renamed Fred & Wilma to protect their identities. Concluding with the belief that he formed a brand new branch of psychology, without any substantial science to back him up. My word, his ego is gargantuan. He claims he worked on it for two years, but people that read it say it’s more like two weeks.
He REALLY wants his video game fans to buy it, offering free DVDs if you buy the book. When Amazon Kindle was offering the book for free, he spammed several authors on Twitter telling them to read it (including romance authors because of a supposed “love story”). He reminds me of Jay Sherman.
Of course, when the book got (deserved) negative reviews on Amazon, Chris fought back. He began getting fake Amazon accounts to spam 5-star reviews all over, all made very clear they didn’t read the book. Chunks of them were deleted, however it was clear he was cheating the system. I’m surprised he wasn’t banned.
He went on Coast to Coast Radio and claims to got a ton of e-mails saying his stuff is awesome (no evidence of course). Somehow, he got Grant Wilson’s approval. At least, that’s what he says. For all we know, Grant was stringing him along since he’s been accused of being a con artist. The paranormal community is a massive circle jerk of the same people congratulating themselves over things that don’t actually exist, and charismatic people can exploit these idiots for monetary gain. Grant probably saw Chris as another dollar sign. Ironic since Chris likely treats his friends like Eric Allen and Brad Harp as dollar signs and will only have them around if they appear in his videos.
There’s also his alleged Hardcore Pawn appearance, but that hasn’t aired, and I’m not even sure if it will. It didn’t air in Season 9, and there’s been no word on a Season 10.
Update: Just as I was about to post this, my informant gave me an update! Chris stated that he’s working on his SECOND BOOK ALREADY! Holy fuck Chris! Are you delusional? Your book didn’t sell at all! Most of the positive reviews were fake! The only legit ones were from people even dumber than you! What is wrong with you? How can you be so up your own ass? What is it even going to be about, more self-fellatio like the first book?

And that is 2015. What will next year bring us? Will Chris try to change video styles again? Will Chris stick to a consistent schedule? Will Chris admit that he’s pretending to be his mom? Will I get someone that was close to him give me some insight to how his mind works? Will his ghost career crash and burn? Will Chris once again disrespect the recently deceased? All we can do is wait.

EDIT: Are you fucking kidding me Chris?! He just put out a new video. 18 minutes long, about fucking toys! *siiiiighs* Did he plan this? Did he know that I was putting up the list and put up that video to fuck with me? Well jokes on you Chris, it's not going on any list!
I'll make a post about it tomorrow. Finishing up this list drained me and I need time to recharge.

  1. Great list, Dan! My worst moment is still that monetized tribute to Leonard Nimoy.

    But yes, Bookgate was a really bad moment for him.

    Can't wait to see what 2016 brings...

  2. Seriously? He's making a second book? Is this guy just delusional or just plain stupid? "My first book didn't sell well...LET'S MAKE A SEQUEL!". I will never understand how his mind works.

    Anyway, here's hoping that 2016 will be a better year!

  3. The Bores has been doing this since his "The Goonies" review. At first, he praises the game saying "I fondly remember playing this, since I was only about eight years old", and then contradicts himself (wuithout realizing it) saying "As much as I loved the movie, I just had the exact opposite reaction towards this game".

    ReplyDelete
  4. I wouldn't doubt the Bores is also part of the Rush Limbaugh crowd, who claims that the only reason Adam Sandler keeps getting Razzies is because he's a rare Conservative in Hollywood.

    When, really, it's just because they suck.

  5. Good list but I would personally include Chris staging a contest in hopes of getting referral credits on my own list. That was so offensive.

  6. I thought the worst moments were where he inflated his book reviews on Amazon AND when he posted a bunch of Skylanders videos on his SkylanderC channel and inflated the number of views by using bots.

    Maybe in 2016 Chris will review online dating sites or pickup artist material?

    ReplyDelete
  7. My worst IG/CB moments of the year, in no particular order:

    * His inability to stick to a schedule that he set for himself.
    * The Atari & Midway HOVG - it reviewed nothing and contained nothing but unfunny Family Guy gags.
    * His posting on Facebook that he was considering retiring IG, but was just attention-whoring.
    * More masturbating over Skylanders.
    * His book.
    * Tasteless jokes in his videos (Michael Jackson & Sonny Bono)
    * Monetizing and begging for subscribers in his Leonard Nimoy tribute.
    * Fake reviewing his book on Amazon.

  8. Wow. This was a career-making year for Boring Man, wasn't it? Not a bit surprised Bookgate is on top; since as an English major, it's probably the clunkiest narrative I've read since Fifty Shades of Grey; only not nearly as funny. So; Chris making a second one despite dismal sales and press really isn't surprising to me. I have no idea what he'll do next year, least of all if he'll finally crash and burn. What I do know is that I'll probably enjoy 2016; and not just because it's the year of the Monkey for me. 30 years of Zelda, 30 years of Mega Man, 25 years of Sonic; 20 years of Pokémon; the NX possibly launching: the possibilities are endless. Well, here's to the new year; folks.

    2. That wouldn't surprise me. he is so goddamn self-absorbed.

    3. Ironically, he claimed to do those vids because "books weren't visual enough." Compared to what? Bullshit Family Guy sketches in lieu of actually talking about the games? Claiming they all suck despite being antiques by today's standards? I also agree the 1978-1980 Atari episode was probably the worst Artistic License History of Video Games of 2015. Bad Superman costume aside (I first saw the video wearing my Man of Steel variant shirt); that blob of pixels isn't exactly Margot Kidder, Amy Adams, or even Kate Bosworth. Also, he's still oblivious to the idea that it's ultimately the games that convince one to buy a certain console; something that started in that timeframe.

      Delete
  9. Honestly, I think the only reason Chris constantly says he likes Pixels is so that he can fool people into thinking he's a gamer (even though it's obvious that he isn't). I don't think it has anything to do with nostalgia. After all, he clearly hasn't been playing video games for "20 years" so how can he have nostalgia over something that was never really part of his childhood to begin with?

    On a side note, I watched Pixels with a group of friends a while back (though I really didn't want to). Yes, that movie is absolute garbage. The plot is beyond incomprehensible, the characters are either bland or obnoxious (Josh Gad's shtick got old VERY fast), and, of course, the jokes are incredibly unfunny. They bring Toru Iwatani into the movie JUST so they can do this incredibly lame and predictable joke where Pac-Man bites his hand. That's literally his ONLY purpose in the entire movie. Just...ugh.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Thing is, that's not Toru Iwatani, that's an actor named Denis Akiyama.

      And yet, they actually did get the real Iwatani, but he's only a cameo as an arcade repairman. Makes no sense.

      Delete
    2. Oh, my bad.

      Still, you think they would give the creator of Pac-Man a little more respect than that. Especially when his creation takes up a majority of the poster.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, it boggles the mind how they made a movie that featured him and made me not want to see it. You have to TRY to fail that hard. So, I saw Ant-Man instead; then watched as Pixels failed to beat it for #1 and totally bombed against stuff like Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Straight Outta Compton. I also watched Wreck-It Ralph again, which is a much funnier and better movie about retro gaming; and I'm glad it's getting a sequel soon with the key actors returning and Rich Moore is at the helm again.

    4. @Batdan

      "And yet, they actually did get the real Iwatani, but he's only a cameo as an arcade repairman. Makes no sense."

      Could be a few reasons:

      1. Language barrier. Iwatani spoke no English or very little to say the least, or his English pronunciation was no good.

      2. Iwatani simply didn't want to act the role he was given, having his hand bitten off by Pacman etc.

      So the filmmakers decided to give him a different and smaller role I guess.

      Delete
    5. So I checked Pixels on imdb and it says that Iwatani spoke no English. So now that makes perfect sense now why they'd hire an actor for him.

      Delete
    6. But it still makes no sense to even bring him in at all.

    2. So he has to make another to get the few blinded fan who bought the book (or got it free through Kindle) to buy his shit again. It's might give him more money in the long term as he didn't put any effort in the first book and most likely won't in the next one so the only money he lose is for manufactoring the paper book

    3. Chris is having financial problems. His book may have sold poorly but apparently made enough to convince him that writing another book would bring in some extra money. That is my suspicion anyways.

    4. And if THAT book ends up a failure, I'm sure he's going to blame us or another book for it. I can just tell!

  13. A "Good fan of the show" (likely just Bores) posted a "Top 10 best Irate Gamer 2015 moments" document on Bores's site.

    2. I agree. The formatting looks like garbage; and it's highly likely someone trolled Boring Man and he didn't realize it somehow.

    1. Apparently Boring Man, trying to get off on his own ego again. Who else would do something like this to make himself look better?

    2. I could be wrong, but this doesn't seem like Bores' work. I've seen this "Jerry K" before on both YouTube and Chris' Facebook page. Judging from what I've seen, he is a massive Irategamer fan. The entire activity section on his YouTube profile consists entirely of likes and positive comments on every video Bores uploads, regardless of how bad they are. He also frequents Bores' Facebook page with positive statements as well.
      So, with all that I've seen, this PDF, along with the information it contains, seems legit in my eyes.
      However, in spite of what I've said, I wouldn't call him a "fanboy" as he does have some common sense. He is willing to hear what Bores' detractors have to say (even if he doesn't agree with the information) and he does seem like a nice guy overall (he did show respect back in January 2014 upon informing Bores about Justin Carmical's death).

  16. You guys reckon that Bores has a boiling point? After all the shit we give him, will he finally snap back at us eventually on video? There's just so much punishment a man can take when he can no longer take anymore.

    I'll say that he's done a fine job saving face, on camera that is. But I'm not sure how long that could last for.

    How long you reckon before he loses it finally? Or maybe Bores will just vanish?

  18. Hey guys, I want to share some stories with you.
    I used to live on the same street as this guy, and also deliver to him when I worked for Dominos. He and a woman who I thought was his wife would order at least once a week. Sometimes they ordered several times a week. They always ordered the without the garlic crust, they were the only customers who did so at first we messed up their order a lot and had to give them free replacements. Since they ordered so much it didn’t take long for us to always remember to double check the pizzas, but they would claim it was still wrong and they did actually ask for the garlic and ask for a free pizza with it. No matter what we did they always said it was wrong and wanted a free pizza, and we also had to give them coupons for free lava cakes. Eventually my manager said no more, you can’t get two for one every time you order because you lie about what you ordered. The manager said they were a big problem before I started working there. Once he wanted to pay by check, the store said they didn’t accept checks, and a little later the woman called back pretending to be a police officer and said they had to take the check. They told her they had caller ID and she hung up. He applied for jobs there but they would never consider him because they already knew he was very dishonest.
    My coworkers were talking about our worst customers and of course they were mentioned immediately, they said he was the Irate Gamer and they showed me some videos. They also told me the woman I thought was his wife was actually his mom. I watched some videos, just laughing at how bad he is. I left some comments on a video, someone argued with me, but before I could respond my comment was deleted and I was blocked from posting again.
    I found this blog then and wanted to talk about it but didn’t want to get in trouble at work. I don’t work there anymore, and I live far away. I found the bookmark while copying stuff to my new computer.
    He also has a book. My friend works at the mall book store, she said someone tried to buy a book and it glitches at the register because it wasn’t in inventory. They found a note inside the cover saying to give it good reviews on Amazon.com, and they don’t allow that at the store because Amazon.com is a competition. They found out that he is bringing in copies of the book and leaving it on the shelf. They threw away the second copy they found and he left another the next week, so they threw that away too. She also saw a copy at the Dollar Tree.

    10. As tempting as it is to believe, should we still take Ratboy's words with a pinch of salt?

      Or perhaps Batdan's so-called "informant" can help us confirm these claims as true or false?

      Delete
    11. Just saw the comment. Take it with a grain of salt.

      My apologies if you're telling the truth Ratboy, but as Alexander above says, it's hard to confirm if what people say on the internet is true or false.

      If you wish to e-mail me info to help confirm your story, you can do so.

      Delete
    12. If that story is true it would make a funny post to open 2016 because Bores almost never posted videos.

      Delete
    13. I wouldn't be surprised if it is a true story.

      Delete
    14. There's possibly some truth to Bores sneaking the book into stores.

      Back in 2013, when reporting on Plastic Jesus' Best Buy prank, he stated that he sneaks Irate Gamer DVDs into the store. I pointed out that it was stupid as he wouldn't make any money from it, but I also figured it was more than likely a stupid joke.

      However, hearing that he possibly sneaks his book into stores, I'm starting to think that wasn't really a joke.

      The article in question:

      In case he sees all this and tries to edit it, here's an archive page: https://archive.is/GHopb

      Delete
    15. While I have no idea if ratboy's claims are true, I feel compelled to comment on the part about leaving your own book at bookstores.

      Chris, I don't know if you do this or not but if you are.... don't. Bookstores are not stupid and they have seen this happen before. If you cause problems at the register then you annoy the employees and the customers. Writers have had their books banned from chain bookstores for this. To be frank, your book is poorly structured and you won't be doing yourself any favors by letting customers look over your work in the store.

      To say nothing of the fact that doing this will not benefit you. The cost of that book comes from your pocket. You won't get any money from the sale and if the store bans you then you won't be able to sell your next book there.

      Finally, it just looks bad. A writer who leaves a book on store shelves like that is generally regarded as a desperate hack.

      Delete
    16. Furthermore, I wonder if he actually eats the lava cakes. Those things are gross.

      Delete
    17. For someone so obsessed with food, you'd think he'd have better taste in pizza. Or maybe he took one bite and said "Face it, pizza is ruined!"

      Delete
    18. Kind of ironic how he made a tasteless joke about being sponsored by Domino's in the Yo Noid "review" and yet he may have tried to basically steal pizza from them.

      Delete
    19. I'm not sure why you all dislike Dominos so much. It's good where I live.

      Delete
    20. Because the other chains are simply better.

      I will say they did improve though but still wouldn't be my goto pizza chain

      Delete
    21. I like to have Dominos every now and then, but the problem is their pizza is way too expensive. If I'm really in the mood for pizza, I'm just going to pick up a frozen one at the store for 5 bucks.

      Dominos (and other corporate pizza chains) seem to be more popular in suburban areas. In major cities and even slightly smaller big cities, the independent pizza chains always do better.

      Delete
    22. @BatDanNight Any news on Ratboy? Has your "informant" got anything yet?

    9. At the time of typing it I didn't think much of it, but upon further examination I realized it is actually quite gross and disturbing. It's funny how dirty thoughts that float in our heads don't seem so bad until they are announced.

      Delete
    10. I'd really appreciate it if you could repost it. The dichotomy between the reactions and your initial evaluation just seems too large for the remark to actually be disturbing. If it really is disturbing, it has been established beyond doubt that you made an honest mistake, so what's the harm?

      Delete
    11. There is no need to repost it. This blog should be a place for legitimate criticism of Chris Bores, not a haven for baseless and inappropriate attacks.

      I suspect you are drawn to the mystique of this deleted comment and if you found out what it was you will probably be disappointed. It was simply an inappropriate and disgusting thought and has no place here.

      Delete
    12. It's not the mystique of it, it's that the magnitude of the reactions just don't match with an honest mistake. Seeing the comment will answer this mystery, so I cannot by definition be disappointed by seeing it.

      Therefore, can someone please give the gist of it? This is driving me nuts.

    13. Evan, let it go. It's not worth your time. Even I don't know what Keith wrote, and really I don't care.

  23. Would you say that Bores sucks at EVERYTHING? This list would convince me so. A try at keeping a schedule? Failed after the second deadline! Start going over technology for cash? A car crash! WRITING A BOOK!? BOLOGNA! The others on the list vary, but your number one is also my number one.

    What skullduggery will Chris come out with this year? Ah well, doesn't matter. New D. Gray Man anime. And I'll be tackling Tales of Zestiria before long (I'll clock in about 5 minutes and I'll laugh to myself at how much more knowledgeable I am at the game when compared to the paltry fount of information Chris could claim to be).

    Rest assured I'll be joining you ladies and gents for this new year!

  24. Great top ten list Batdan! I'm glad you put his paranormal stuff shit as number 1 on the list because that is really getting out of hand. :/

    Also I finally beat Tales of Zestiria yesterday after playing it for 60 hours. Yeah, there's certainly no way Bores will spend 60 hours on the game like me since he rather spends more time on Skylanders and ghosts.

Now he just makes boring Let's Plays on Game Grumps and writes god awful video game "parody" music on the Starbomb albums (he's even admitted himself that he can't rap for shit). His non-changing schtick of screaming, acting like a douche bag, saying "fuck" every 3 seconds and making dick jokes constantly has worn much too thin over the years, and now he has fans as bad as PewDiePie's.

    5. I used to really like Egoraptor. The second he announced the Let's Play channel, I was afraid he would start to say things I wouldn't agree with. And boy, that happened pretty fast.

      Kind of weird to see someone not know who he is on the internet, I thought he was pretty popular.

      Delete
    6. Even Arin's opinions and thoughts on games are shit, like how he constantly says that 3-D Zelda sucks in comparison to 2-D Zelda and that 3-D holds your hand too much (his own playthrough of Wind Waker on the Game Grumps channel says otherwise) and how he says that ALL Sonic games are terrible. It's like the guy doesn't even know shit about video games all of a sudden. You can even see that he can't even play them well on his own fucking let's play channel. And the Sonic Boom playthrough he did with Danny Sexbang (yes, that's seriously what he calls himself) felt like Arin was just trying to recreate the Sonic '06 playthrough he did with Jon before he left, but he failed miserably to do so.

  28. So, what sort of games did everyone get/play over the holidays? I finally got my Wii U; with the Mario Maker download and Pixel Mario Amiibo (modern colors). That by itself should keep me plenty busy until I get more games for it.

I also was able to buy a North American Palutena amiibo on eBay for less than $20 including shipping. A true Christmas miracle.

  29. I'm not sure if this is a nitpick or legit criticism, but I noticed something when checking out the preview for Ghost Hunting 2.0.

    Chapter 1 is tiled "Introduction." Umm...doesn't the intro go BEFORE the actual beginning of the book? It just looks strange to see "Chapter 1: Introduction" written in the table of contents.

    On a side note, I'm currently writing a novel at the moment. I constantly worry about the possibility of it not turning out so good, but seeing Chris' terrible writing gives me quite a confidence boost.

    9. So you finally decided to comment here. I'm gonna assume that you are in fact, his mother. With that being said, I have to ask this: Why don't you ever tell your son to listen to constructive criticism? some people in his comment sections have been trying to give him good advice on how to improve his videos, correcting him on some errors he makes, being polite about it, etc. But he doesn't want to listen.

      Delete
    10. I don't TELL my son or my adult children what to do. He is a 37 year old adult man. He is at this point in life responsable for his own likes and dislikes and the choices he makes in His own life. You will understand this when you are old enough to be on your own and become your own man. Maybe you need to stop offering your opinions to him and let him do what he pleases, it is his life to live, not yours :D

      Delete
    11. One of the most vital things to do in becoming your own man, is learning how to take constructive criticism and listen to it. Also, I and a lot of other people will continue to offer our opinions to him. he can choose whether or not he wants take constructive criticism and to listen to it. But if he truly wants to become his own man, then he HAS to take constructive criticism and listen to it. If he can't do that, then he won't truly become his own man.

If we're all just a bunch of delusional psychopaths with a complete lack of reasoning like you say we are, then why do you care so much for what we think about you and "your son" to the point where you have to come on here and try and show us up? Why not just ignore us altogether if our opinions mean nothing to you? Unless, they do actually matter to you.

    4. btw .... Christopher and I DO NOT have the same IP address and you all would of known that had you checked for yourselves (by doing your own research) instead of believing some bumbling fool for your evidence. In my world, we call that being Detective Dumbass'! Yes, I do live in different Cities than my adult children so it would be totally impossible for us to have the same IP address'. If that doesn't make sense to you then I'm positive you'll be jobless for life!

    5. "you have very poor sentence structure"

      "Did you actually really pass the 3rd grade???"

      LOL

    6. Okey I'm jobless for life and you're the biggest asshole around. Saying all that wouldn't save you for calling people jobless and having mental breakdown just for making you look bad. Also I like how you told us to do research, sure would be handy if you taught your "son" that, would have end this blog a looong time ago. Finally, why should we believe you, you call people jobless and having mentalbreakdown just for making fun of you, your "son" is a liar and with your comments here and on Youtube, you can't even take criticism, so WHY should we believe you

    7. Apparently YOU can't take critism!!!
      hahahahah You're unhinged kiddo :D

    8. Fine I accept that, how about you

    9. Hello LadyBuggin777, see you finally got the balls to come here and talk to us here personally. XD

      Also, the more you keep saying your 'son' and 'you' live in different cities, the more we're convinced that 'you' and Bores are the same person.

      Delete
    10. I'm fine thank you. No problems to speak of. My life is wonderful and filled with much love and joy. Hopefully for you 2016 can be the same. Good luck :D

      Delete
    11. I know you're try to end the conversation but you do know that I'm talking about you accepting that you can't take criticism too just like I did. For cry out loud, by accepting that I can't take criticism, I'm just prove that I actually can and certainly better than you. And why can't you make a video(comment from below) we all know how talk, we all know how you look, the only thing we didn't know is your voice which is not something that is super secret, so making a video wouldn't break any of your privacy crap and it will only help you clear your name. But no, you won't do that, you know why, because you're coward Chris

      Delete
    12. For one I'm not Christopher. For two, if Christopher was a coward he wouldn't have been on over 300 video's as the Irate Gamer for going on 9 years running. If you are calling me a coward, I laugh in your face .. hahahah .... Believe me when push comes to shove I'm the last person to back down! So if you need a video for me to prove I am a 60 yr old female mom, too damn bad, you're not getting one because I said so! :D

      Delete
    13. Oh our little Crisbo is having another mental breakdown

    14. So your IP isn't the same as his? Any proof on that? Thought not. I also love how you say you don't care, yet went to all the effort to insult me LOL. We all know this account is used to vent your anger Chris LOL. Still wondering why we should believe you though Chris. Btw i dont think you can criticize my grammar when you can't teach your "son" to spell frustrated right LOL.

  33. I had assumed that Ratboy's claims were false but apparently the user behind the LadyBuggins777 account was defensive enough to comment on it. Now I am wondering.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Since Ratboy's claims included myself I felt it appropriate enough for me to at least call him on his fabricated story. I see you feel compelled to comment on your experience of writing books when anything comes up about Christopher's book. In a sense you are going to great lengths to give validation to your own credibility to be taken seriously when critiquing Christopher's book. That is a form of defending yourself, dear man, yet you question when others defend their person. that is called in simple terms a hypocrite or double standards. Now, I am seriously wondering about you!

    2. Hi Chris,

      Why did you inflate your Amazon review numbers?

      Delete
    3. You Tubed? More like Boob Tube!
      Once again, I am not Chris.
      Must be hell to be you when using public restrooms since you can't tell the difference between a male and a female. The name Boob Tube fits you perfectly. Go ask your parents about the birds and the bees, you'll be much better off when out in the real world :D

      Delete
    4. Sure, whatever you say Chris.

      Better to admit it's you than continue the charade.

      How sad and pathetic and a man child would you have to be if your mom has to stick up for you?

      Delete
    5. Linda, I have a question for you. Why do you feel that your continual defense of Chris does not harm his reputation?

      Delete
    6. What's really sad is you are more worried that your own mother wouldn't stick up for you as it seems very foreign to you that I defend myself and MY son. That is how real families are, Boob Tube. They stick together through all kinds of weather. Blood is thicker than water as the old saying goes! I feel sorry for you that you've never known that kind of love of family before. Believe me you're truly missing out on what is most important in life :D

      Delete
    7. No, Evan. I feel my support of my son strengthens his reputation. Christopher comes from a strong united family background. I get emails all the time from his fans telling me how awesome it is that I call out the haters and the zombies that listen to lies and misinformation to form their opinions. This blog for one, makes up so much nonsense and try to pass it for the truth. So I take great pleasure in setting numb skulls straight and getting out the facts when I do know them. Since when is telling the truth harmful to anyone's reputation?

      Delete
    8. I see. Certainly he does not have the time to do this himself, which is why you do it. Why, then, have you not made a video, as proof that you are not Chris, when this is such a common accusation laid against you?

      Delete
    9. The same reason you don't make a video to prove you're Evan. There is such a thing as the privacy act :D
      I do what I do because I enjoy what I do. I'm sure you enjoy blogging too as you are here, aren't you?

      Delete
    10. Your assumptions are hilarious Chris.

      It's too bad you're full of crap.

      Delete
    11. "You Tubed? More like Boob Tube!"

      Yup, truly what every parent would say to defend their child. Wonder how you talk to your son's school principal back then.

      "Mr. Waters? More like Mr. Sewer Waters!"

      Delete
    12. I see you've come at me to start an arguement. Me thinks you protest too much! Silly boy you catch more bees with honey than with vinegar. You're totally out of your league :D

      Delete
    13. btw I never had to tlak with my son's principal. Christopher was a great student and very respectful of school policies. Sorry to leave you disappointed :(

      Delete
    14. It's not really a matter of enjoyment. I'm just asking you some things I've been curious to know. After all, you have been in the business of defending Chris for many years, and I have been following Chris for many years as well, but I have participated little in the discussion. While you have your right to privacy, perhaps I can politely request that you make a video? I'm sure fans and detractors alike would be happy to see one. PLEASE don't take this as an attack, because I am not in any way trying to attack you or Chris.

      Delete
    15. so why did Chris date his cousin?

      Trying too keep that close knit family dynamic alive?

      Delete
    16. Jennifer is not and never was Christopher's cousin, she was adopted. There is no blood relation. This is the kind of lies that this blog tries to spread to any one that will listen. You've proved my point about ill informed zombies :D

      Delete
    17. Evan, I do not take your question or suggestion as an attack. So far you've been honest and respectful. I prefer my privacy is the best answer I have for you when it comes to making a video. If people don't want to believe the truth and take it for my word, well than so be it. I'm still my children's mother no matter what internet gossip and rumors conjure up :D

      Delete
    18. Why are you lying about Jennifer being a blood relative when we've all seen the genealogy records that say Wilson Frederick Schippel was the great grandfather of both Jennifer and Chris?

      Delete
    19. @Locus Ceruleus Media

      Waaaaaaaait, are we now saying that Chris might be inbred? Even I find that hard to believe. Proof please?

      Another note, is this marrying-cousins shit even legal in Ohio?

  34. Guys, let's stop replying to LadyBuggin. There's absolutely nothing anybody can say to get her or him to take criticism. If we just ignore LadyBuggin, they will get off the page.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Though I will say that it is strange to see him or her commenting here, considering that most people that read this blog know that LadyBuggin is an insane troll that doesn't listen to any type of criticism. Does he or she seriously think they can gain something by commenting here?

      Delete
    2. they can't help themselves, they are obsessed with me and my son. It's become an addiction to them over the years. Sad but true.

      Delete
    3. When I say "he or her" I'm referring to LadyBuggin. Not commenters in general.

      I'm saying "he or her" because while it's very likely that LadyBuggin is Chris, it is also possible that she really is Chris' mother if the Dominos story is true. As of right now, I'm just going to assume it could be either.

      Also, this is the last time I will be commenting about LadyBuggin as I really want her go away already.

    4. Ok I'm leaving Silent Spring. I'm off to bed, you got your wish. Good night and have a wonderful 2016 :D

  35. What Silent Spring says was true, people. Stop commenting on LadyBuggin, he/she has place in this blog and if he/she want to do their usual job at defending Chris, just ignore it.

    Oh, and by the way; Linda/Chris/Whoever you are if you respond this comment I made, I'm just gonna ignore you like any rational person on the internet would when dealing with trolls like you. Selamat Tinggal!

  37. Ladybuggin, if you're reading this, I just want to say that you defending Chris doesn't really help him. No offence to you or Chris, but it kind of makes it seem as though he can't stand up for himself, and has to rely on his mum, which obviously doesn't look to good on him. I'm just saying.

    1. lol,

      I told him the same exact thing. He honestly loses in any case.

      If it's him using a puppet account, it shows he's a troll and can't accept criticism.

      If it's really his mom, it shows he's a man child who can't be a man.

      Has zero to do with sticking together, Chris.

      Delete
    2. BoobTube, everyone here knows the real man child is you. no matter how you deny it, that fact remains the same :D
      I've made all my points and if you bone heads refuse to except all I've put forth to you, so be it. Wallow in your delusional states of minds. Happy New Years, I'm pretty much done here as all the past xmembers of this blog have flown the coop, so shall I .... See you on the other side :D

      Delete
    3. Yes, WE'RE the delusional ones, Chris. Not the person that once said that people who posted here were no better than out-and-out terrorists simply for not liking your content.

      Just stop. Please.

      Delete
    4. Also I'm pretty sure the delusional are the one who think that just exist on YouTube means you have courage and making a video that could potentially destroy this blog and clear your name is too much for your privacy eventhough we already know all about you. Seriously Chris, just who is the mental breakdown child here? Oh yeah, the one that said people is jobless and having mental breakdown just for making fun of you. Also smiley is for little kid or adult try to say hip. Why even tell people are delusional when you're the most delusional of all

  38. Did anyone ever report Chris for the fake Amazon reviews? Just wondering.

    Replies
    1. I hope somebody does. That way Chris can get banned from Amazon and unable to publish any sequel. I don't think he would have any luck publishing anything anywhere else.

    2. Even if someone did report Bores, I highly doubt Amazon is even bothered to deal with him. Most likely they have bigger fish to fry.

      Delete
  39. @LadyBuggin. Bores or not, I'm a huge fan of the Irate Gamer.
    I don't ever comment on here because I could really care less about this site. But I'm going to ask for you to please stop escalating conflicts on this blog.
    Chris has an excellent group of fans as it is, and basically "Cyberbullying" is the last thing that will get these haters to change their minds about Bores.
    Please just leave them be, and lets be graceful for the content that Chris produces, and the great fans that enjoy it.

    1. Oh, hi, Jerry! Didn't expect to see your butthurt and denial on here...

      BTW, criticism =/= cyberbullying. We are trying to help Bores be a better reviewer, not worse. Plus, there's evidence on this blog (and various other sites) that proves what your "lord and savior" has been doing all these years.
