"Irate Gamer" is over. ... Again.

Chris just posted this to Facebook. (thanks to Marley Hughes for the screencap)



This is like what, the fifth time he's announced retirement? Chris, you ever heard The Boy Who Cried Wolf? A fable that's lasted the ages because its message still rings true? You're the boy, and your constant claims of retirement are ringing more and more hollow. Keep it up and nobody will come running to you when a wolf escapes a public access show and starts attacking you (and if anyone sees this as a threat, it's a Simpsons reference).

There is one part that seems to indicate he's "serious". He says "Season 5" is the last one, but the Duck Hunt video was Season 6 right? Not anymore. He's since edited it to be Episode 13 of Season 5. I mention in my recap how it's a new season so yeah this is a retcon.

If he's for real, where does that leave me? Well, he says in the post he'll still be around, so I will be too. Who knows, he might actually make that second book, or that episode of Hardcore Pawn will actually air (doubtful), or he'll make another ghost movie, or he'll just make more videos about stupid boxes since apparently these companies are desperate and paying obscene amounts of money for a video ($1500 according to Guru Larry).

Sorry "Linda", and other haters, but I'm here to stay.

If he really is done, thank you everyone. To all the fans, big and small, for your years of appreciation. This was a fun little diversion that despite what people claimed, didn't really take much time out of my day. I'm happy to make you laugh, angry, or whatever other emotion you possibly felt while reading. Thank you, and I wish you all the best.

EDIT: Chris, if you want this to be serious, make a video explaining yourself.

Also, if Chris decides to close his account, everyone download his videos for preservation. Think of them as part of a how-to guide on how NOT to make internet videos.

  3. You know what Bore's retirement claims remind me of? Chris-Chan's multiple announcements of leaving the internet in 2010, though he always came back sometime after making those announcements.

  4. I swear, Chris is becoming Seth Macfarlane. They're both unfunny, have giant egos, and keep announcing retirement only to eventually return. All Chris needs to do is get better voice-acting skills and kill off a character for a publicity stunt and he and Seth will be one and the same.

  5. Is he going to make another 40 minute video demonizing James Rolfe?

  6. By the way, go look at the comments people are leaving on his post.

    1. They're falling for it. Of course.

      Again, money bets that Chris is being the boy who cried "wolf" and he's only saying it just to garner sympathy.

      And people on sites have constantly told me (and many others) "he's old news". I still think he has some relevance these days, though.

    2. I think it's another set up so he can say that he's reviving IG because of his "fans"

  7. Does he seriously expect us to believe him? Is he making this announcement just to garner sympathy and views? Cause this is just ridiculous!

  8. Shrek 5 was just announced. I'm expecting memes, since nobody takes those movies seriously anymore.

    1. More to the point, live-action Pokemon is apparently happening. And a lot sooner than Shrek, at that.

    2. Seriously? I heard that Shrek 4 ended the series on the right notes! How are they going to top that?

      And I wonder how they'll handle the live-action Pokemon? I hope they'll at least be better than X-Play's dreadful parody of Cowboys and Aliens.

    3. It's a Detective Pikachu movie.

    4. *Sigh* Dreamworks, it's been what, six years since the last film. And Mike Myers doesn't seem to have enthusiasm voicing Shrek anymore. In the fourth film, he doesn't sound as energetic as he was in Shrek and Shrek 2. Why bother making a fifth film?

  9. Long time reader of this blog here. Who knows if it's the end for sure because how many times has this guy "retired" in a little more than a year, but I still felt like posting to say I enjoyed your coverage of the Irate Gamer's antics over the years. It's always been entertaining to read you and saddening to see how low this guy fell over the course of time. His regular IG videos always were so bad it's good to me but all the toys, the bad tech reviews and his overall PR were beyond dreadful.

    Hopefully he's done for real. I doubt it, but one can hope.

  10. I said it before and I'll say it again, get a fucking life and stop being obsessed with hating on Chris Bores.

    Whether he means it or not is frankly none of your business.

    I wouldn't mind you criticizing him so much if most of your articles weren't pointless nitpicks, but they are.

    1. Didn't you used to hate IG?

      Besides, Batdan's not stalking Crisbo! He's just giving an analysis on why Crisbo fails as an entertainer and a reviewer: By not giving what the fans want and, when he "does", by doing it poorly!
      -_-

      Batdan HAS a life. It's just part of his free time spent on the blog.

    3. "Didn't you used to hate IG?"

      Yes, I did, but that's all in the past.

      "Besides, Batdan's not stalking Crisbo! He's just giving an analysis on why Crisbo fails as an entertainer and a reviewer: By not giving what the fans want and, when he "does", by doing it poorly!"

      The fact that he has made a new I rate the 80's episode a few months ago proves he does care about his fans.

      "Batdan HAS a life. It's just part of his free time spent on the blog."

      Still doesn't excuse the fact he has to make an article about literally everything Chris Bores does online. I still find it sad. You might say I'm obsessed with hating on BatDan. But the difference is I check back the irate gamer sucks blog occasionally, I don't go to every article to debunk them like BatDan does with Chris Bores's videos ans other online activity.

    5. Then leave. I always find it funny the people that act above something always have to make sure they let everyone know.

    6. "Still doesn't excuse the fact he has to make an article about literally everything Chris Bores does online."

      You do realize, that if you're making a blog that's out there to warn people about what someone does, and how shitty they are, then you generally have to cover every shitty thing they do, right?

      I have to say though, it's kind of funny how much of a Bores fanboy you've become, Blaze. What's not so funny is you became one after knowing everything he's done. Doesn't really speak well to the type of guy you are.

    7. Did you fall for his "opening up" video?
      -_-

  11. If he's retiring, will he at least make one more episode so that his show can go out with a bang? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA of course not. He'll never have the intelligence and enthusiasm to do that.

  12. We shall see if he does retire for real..

    ReplyDelete
  13. I seriously doubt he's actually quitting. It'll be just like last time, and if he's serious? Good riddance. I'm almost hoping if he's really retiring IG, his other endeavors might actually be expedited, allowing BatDan to write about them more.

  14. He's full of shit he JUST posted another shitty tech review

    1. Maybe he is just retiring the Irate Gamer character but is still going to post videos on his channel.

  15. So he's going to go to full time "reviewing" crappy tech gadgets and gimmicks? I'm sure that will work out well.
