It’s been about 12 days since Chris posted a video (Excitebike was posted January 29th). But he has done quite a bit outside of making videos.
Chris is deleting videos again. I still don’t get it.
The two tech reviews he did this year are gone, the one with the shitty emulator & headphones and the one with the power bank & speaker. He also deleted the video about the Fable Legends art book.
Did he delete them due to the heavy dislikes? Hard to say since the videos about Gravity Falls figures and the crappy phone apps are still up. Maybe he doesn’t want to have too many videos with heavy dislikes? I’ve been informed that Chris is part of a new multi-channel network. Collective Digital Studio (though now they’re called Studio 71). They’re a notable MCN that have featured Freddie Wong, Cyanide & Happiness, Epic Meal Time, and Lucas “Fred” Cruikshank. Maybe they’re the reason Chris has put out a lot of videos lately? It doesn’t seem to be working as his views are still garbage, if anything they’re worse. Chris seems to believe putting out low quality crap is enough to please them. Why would CDS/S71 want Chris anyway? His name is toxic.
I recommend saving every video he puts out now. If he’s going to delete them within a month, this is the best course of action. Preservation is important.
Sometime last week, Chris changed his channel name from “Irategamer” to “Chris Bores TV”. He didn’t announce it, it just happened. But then it changed to “The Irate Gamer”. What was that about? That was so weird. Did he think his name was big enough to carry the channel? He’s deluded if he thinks so.
So why hasn’t Chris been posting anything? According to his Facebook, he took a week off because he made 13 videos in the last year. Incredible, that’s… really not a lot. Are you serious Chris? You’re bragging that you got 13 videos out? Also, is that including I Rate the 80’s because there’s only 12 episodes of “Season 5”. For some reason he’s including History of Video Games as part of those 12 episodes, no it doesn’t make sense but when has anything Chris done ever make sense?
13 videos is a pittance compared to the output others put out. Linkara himself commented on the last post on all the content he put out. 52 AT4W episodes, 62 Longbox of the Damned videos, two Let’s Play videos, two live shows, two riffs, 15 History of Power Rangers videos, and his movie. Don’t try to sound like 13 is a lot Chris.
If anything, that shows just how low effort all the other videos he puts out are. He doesn’t care about the others and thus he’s not including them. It’s clear that his intention is views and money, and it’s hurting him hard.
I also noticed he changed his “About” page. He removed links to GotGame and amiibo Informer. The latter makes sense, he hasn’t updated since July (dead site is dead). Though I question the former… is GotGame finally cutting him off? I know I’ve speculated about this before and he ended up releasing a Tales of Zestiria video, but this does raise red flags. However, he still lists GotGame as a featured channel under TheSkylanderC (which hasn’t updated in two months) and GotGame itself still lists him as a featured contributor. I don’t know, Chris is so terrible at communication that all we can do is guess.
My informant found an interesting tweet from him. Posted on Tweetsave for preservation.
Who’s Dana Terrace? She’s a storyboard artist and animator. She worked on Gravity Falls and she is going to be the director of the 2017 DuckTales reboot. Yep. Chris is begging to be a part of the new DuckTales series. Seems his comments back in March when talking about the reboot weren’t just wishful thinking, he legit wants to be part of the show. … What the fuck would you even do? You’re not an animator, you’re not an artist, and you’re certainly not a writer (no, having that ghost book doesn’t make you a writer). I don’t think they’d hire you either after your comments about Launchpad being stupid.
But wow, this is sad even for him. Begging directors on Twitter. It’s not going to happen Chris, show some fucking self-respect.
By the way, when’s your Hardcore Pawn appearance Chris? I suspect TruTV might have cancelled the show as it’s been 10 months since Season 9 ended. Take a look at when each season started and ended. There’s usually a month between them, with the longest being Season 8 to 9’s four month gap.
TruTV hasn’t confirmed renewal or cancellation, but this is really strange.
Now watch as Chris posts something new right after this goes up.
