It Hasn't Even Been a Day! At Least Try to Pretend You're Retired

I'm almost convinced Chris has multiple personality disorder. He says "I'm retired", but then posts a new video like nothing fucking happened. It's like there's multiple people operating up there.

He posted a new tech review, like we're just supposed to forget that he announced retirement.

... Wait, I think I got it. "Retirement" = No more free videos. All he's been doing lately is paid shilling. The boxes, the apps, the tech, these are done because he's getting guaranteed compensation. As opposed to heavily edited "Irate Gamer" episodes which will barely give him anything as views are way down, and he won't do anything to bring them up. So instead, he's become a whore. Irate Gamer? More like Irate Shill, because that's all he is now.

That is just disgusting. You could have least tried Patreon before you threw in the towel!

  1. To be fair, he said he is retiring the Irate Gamer show. He didn't say anything about his other stupid videos. Though you think he would change the channel name, and stop calling his tech reviews "IG tech review". If he is really getting paid for this rubbish, maybe the IG should stand for Irate Greeder.

  3. So then Batty lied as he claimed months ago he would stop the blog if Chris stopped making the Irate Gamer show. Guess Batty's work isn't worth the paper it's typed on! Not surprised he never was a man of honor. Have fun you all reading boring blogs from him commenting on tech and box war reviews? What fun!!! lmao. Thanks sargent for clarifying the obvious about the retirement, Batty doesn't seem to have the grammar abilities to read Chris's FB posts correctly :D

    10. So, Chris, are you saying that the tech reviews are boring? If so, why do you make them? Do you really hate your fans so much?

      Also, could you link the post where it was said that 'Batty' would quit if you did? As far as I have seen 'Batty' has said that he will continue to post so long as you do.

      Also, you're a loathsome piece of feculent scum and I loathe the synthetic, shit-like skin off of your bones.

  4. Notice how the video is titled "IG tech review."

    1. "Irate Gamer" is the best branding that Chris can cover his videos. Just like when he would say "meet the Irate Gamer" in his ghost hunting events.

  5. I want to ask who these tech reviews are for as they are not useful to people interested in these devices and most of his audience is too young to be able to afford these things. Unfortunately, the answer is that these videos are for his bank account.

    I think my favorite part of this video was his description of the projector. He says it is nice and it has lots of buttons. Very useful information there, Chris.

    Chris mentions that the projector has a foreign power supply and that he needs a 12 volt unit... despite the fact that the webpage for that item specifies a 110-220 volt PSU. This is enough to make somebody wonder if Chris is lying about how he likes to use it on his lectures.

    ReplyDelete
  6. He's completely out of touch with YouTube now, especially judging from his sockpuppet, claiming I'm a backstabber and all my fans abandoned me. Despite the fact I now have over 30,000 more subscribers than him and my videos make 20-30 times the number of views his does XD

    Keep living in that bubble with your pretend mother and where it's still 2007.

    4. @Larry Where does he accuse you of being a backstabber and such?

      Delete
    5. You know [Chris] is messed up when calling one of your only friends (well, ex-friend now) a backstabber. Seriously, what did Larry ever do to you besides trying to help you?

      Delete
    6. It's in the chain of replies to BatDan's comment.

      But I have tried to help him over and over and he just chooses to ignore me or thinks his way is better. He's even worse than DarksydePhil in that respect, at least he acknowledges it.

      Delete
    7. Well Larry, at least you were kind enough to try and help Chris. Pity he proved to be so horrible to you.

      Delete
    8. I don't think it was anything personal, just like what's known about his real life relationships with other people. He's just incredibly socially awkward.

    9. you mean it's not an act? he's really that oblivious?

  7. Something weird I noticed. Earlier today, the dislikes on this video were over 200. Now they're down to 80-something. Do you think he's manipulating somehow how many dislikes he receives?

  9. If he's really done with Irate Gamer, he wouldn't be calling his new video "IG Tech Review" and still ends his videos by saying "Game on".

    Unless, he still wants to be called Irate Gamer despite not making anymore Irate Gamer episodes. Then that's really stupid. That's like if Doug Walker still wants to be called Nostalgia Critic despite not making anymore Nostalgia Critic videos.

  10. I mentioned something similar in the video and Not-Chris Mom called me stupid and went on to babble about how people who retire don't change their names.

    1. Pretty funny considering how often Chris changes his name to LadyBuggin.

      Also I assume he thinks Robert Downey Jr. continues being Iron Man after the movie is over.

  11. For what is worth, I am actually surprised ChrisBo hasn't touched the Ghostbusters remake at all.

  12. New message on Facebook, saying how it takes a lot of time and money to make an episode and how YouTube of today "Doesn't pay the bills". He asked then "Is there enough interest for another season?"

    I feel like banging my head against a wall right now.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. PS, what is it about making an episode that costs so much money? I'm no expert on making a game review on YouTube, but if he has the game and the game system and the camera set, where is this money he can no longer spend been going? Is he so broke now that he can't even afford cheap green table cloths from Walmart anymore? My guess is he's wasting all his money on the pointless padding and special effects.

      Delete
    2. And he has people saying that they would find a Kickstarter for a new season.

      Delete
    3. For what he does, he should already have all the equipment for, so what other costs could he possibly have?

      My guess is it's laziness, not costs, that keep him from doing shows.

      Delete
    4. Of course it's his laziness. His fans have been asking for movie reviews for about a year. How 'expensive' and 'time-consuming' do you think those are? Especially since his movie reviews generally are about a minute and a half of'AWESUMFLIKGOSEEITBUB' and he doesn't even appear on-screen (saves him having to fight the urge to lick the camera lens). Yet, he doesn't do them. Because he is a lazy turd who won't do the bare minimum 10 minutes work to appease the fanbase that was handed to him on a plate.

      Delete
  13. Check out Chris' twitter. Apparently he plays Pokemon Go. Or, so he claims.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Alright, I will give you credit where credit is due, you are right that it's shady that he keeps making these tech reviews despite a lot of people, including his own fans say they don't like to watch these.

    I might still be a fan of him, but I agree with you that these tech reviews are poorly done videos. But I don't want him to stop making them as I think he should be able to do whatever he wants with his channel. (And for the record I'm not saying it because I like him, I also feel the same way about people on YouTube I don't like.)

    I really want him to go back to skylanders videos, because at least I found these entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I do understand why he's making these tech videos, because he wants to promote these items.

      Also, don't think for a second that the comment I left now means I like you, I still don't. I just agree with you on one thing, that's all.

      Delete
    2. he doesn't want to promote anything, don't get it confused. These "reviews" are merely for the fact he gets paid to do them and/or free stuff. Similarly to how GotGame used to shell out things for him, and why IG Neo was born.

      If you say you're still a fan of IG even though you say you agree that these tech reviews are shady, then it's so obvious that you're lying to us. If you still like him, don't even bother making comments here. You're only embarrassing yourself.

      Delete
    8. Believe whatever you want, but I am telling the truth that I don't like his tech reviews anymore.

      But you are right on one thing making comments on this blog is a waste of time, I don't know why the hell I bother to still do that, I should stop, because I am willing to admit there are many things BatDan calls Bores out on which I can't defend. Such as what Bores said about James Rolfe in his Opening Up video and the fact that Bores made an awful comment about JewWario. Why do I still support it despite that? Well, it's simple because I find his videos to be entertaining. (or at least the ones where he tries to be funny, his tech reviews aren't good in my honest opinion.)

Yet there she is, with the same great grandfather. Just admit who you are and that you screwed your cousin, Chris. You might find it freeing.

      As for your other moronic suppositions, not everyone on the internet lives in America, just FYI. Google isn't my source, GENEALOGY RECORDS are. GOOGLE IS NOT A SOURCE OF INFORMATION IT IS A SEARCH ENGINE. IT AGGREGATES AND DISPLAYS THE CONTENT OF OTHER EXISTING SITES. Christ, you're stupid. Also I wouldn't live in a country where the political choice is between a lying warmonger and an egomaniac who raped his ex-wife if you paid me.

  15. off-topic: just plugging the Kickstarter for Prey for the Gods again. At first I said I wasn't backing it because they dropped Mac support and replaced it with stretch goals for XB1/PS4. Now they've made XB1/PS4 back and made Mac a stretch goal, I pledged $50.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm surprised Chris can't just use some of the thousands of dollars he made from his ghost book to make new IG episodes. After all, it must have been a best-seller considering how many positive reviews it got an Amazon!

    Chris should write The Irate Gamer Story next. The tale of how an imbecile ripped off someone else's successful idea, received a ton of undeserved luck and free promotion, then proceeded to spend years pissing it all away. A real riches to rags story.

  17. OT: Star Trek Beyond was pretty good. I think I liked the last one better though. Yorktown looked pretty cool - kind of like Coruscant wrapped like a pretzel. It's obvious though judging from the last movie and even moreso from this movie that this alternate timeline is supposed to take place during the original series and at the same time incorporate key events from the original movies. This leads me to believe that characters from The Next Generation might be in the next film, like a young Picard or something.

    At the same time, I think they really should come out with a new Star Trek TV series.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They are, it's going to be on-demand next year. Star Trek Discovery, which will feature a ship of the same name and take place after TOS, but before TNG. I'm going to Beyond myself soon, especially to honor Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin (who Abrams has confirmed will not be replaced as a result of his passing, instead simply writing Chekov out of the planned sequel out of respect for the man and his work).

      Delete
    2. Yep they pay a nice tribute to Leonard Nimoy in the movie.

      Delete
    3. Am I the only one that noticed that literally everybody forgot that film existed? It took my driving by the theater that's on the way to my workplace every day to even know that Beyond was a thing that exists.

      Delete
    4. Star Trek isn't the phenomenon that Star Wars is. For the most part, it has only appealed to die hard fans of the franchise (or Trekkies if you prefer). I remember when Nemesis came out, it was the same deal. All the Trekkies were like "Hell yeah, a new Star Trek movie!" whereas everyone else was like "Ah cool, yeah whatever."

      Delete
    5. MacDragard: Yes, but Star Trek has produced some amazing entertainment and been really good for the world, and I wish it was having a better 50th Anniversary year.

      Delete
    6. Comparable or not, you'd expect at least SOMETHING is all. Sure, it's an anniversary year so some people are talking about the franchise as a whole, but even watching people that go out of their way to talk about it had neglected to mention Beyond, as far as I recall.

      I blame Ghostbusters being the topical thing the week before.

      Delete
    7. I just got back from it a few minutes ago. It may not be my favorite Trek movie; but it's definitely made the list (I'm one of those people that can rank all of them so far based on how much I enjoyed them). Much like the previous alternate reality films; while the special effects and action scenes may be a lot flashier, it doesn't forget to skimp on a good story or engaging characters either. Lin definitely understands how to make a good movie form a technical standpoint (a lot of those battles in space are pretty trippy; especially that last one near Yorktown Station); and Pegg's work on the script is rife with mythology gags to the franchise (his performance as Scotty continues to be one of my favorite things about these new movies). Definitely not surprised there, since Pegg made a lot of Trek references in Spaced, the Cornetto trilogy and Paul (like the scene where he and Nick Frost's character re-enacted the fight with the Gorn at Vasquez Rocks).

  18. Chris only makes these "I'm retiring" claims to gain sympathy and keep all of his "right-wing" fans he have strong and ultra.

    1. And if you think I'm exaggerating, look at his response to Guru Larry while putting on his disguise as his mother, saying things like "long time fans gave up on you long ago", "You're a two face, back stabbing, low life, no-do-good-er and they knew it" and "Quick run to your safe space to shield you from the truth!"

      Is it hard to believe what I said?

      Also, he responded to a guy named TMNT fanatic with "Quick, run to your safe space to shield you from the truth!!!!! TRUMP 2016 ~"

      I'm not surprised Chris does support Trump.

    3. I'm sorry. I just felt angry lately and I guess I went too far with these comments. Sorry.

    4. I'd be really surprised if Chris had any "right wing" fans. If he does, they're definitely in the minority. Most of his fans aren't even old enough to vote let alone give a damn about politics. Usually the video game crowd will vote for the candidate that the media glorifies the most, which is usually the liberal/democrat candidate - that is if they vote at all since said people are usually very apathetic about things like politics or what's going on in the world around them.

      I'm sure if Chris was ever on The Apprentice though, he'd get grilled pretty badly.

      Delete
    5. You might think politics is boring and stupid, but keep in mind such apathy led to the fall of the Roman Empire and I'm afraid it will lead to the fall of western society, with the world becoming more dangerous every day and the generation that can't name five of the American Founding Fathers but can name five Pokemon becoming the prime generation.

    9. @Sean Barker - Being an avid follower of politics and current events, I believe it's the most shocking if it is at all true. Chris's work ethic is very similar to Hillary's and Obama's. I'm pretty sure she really isn't voting for Trump though and is only shouting that because she knows most of the people on here are millennials, which typically vote for the liberal democrat candidate, so it's just a way to troll everyone (not effectively but trolling nevertheless).

      If her and Chris really are voting for Trump, great. I hope he wins.

    10. @MacDragard - I don't wanna start a political debate here. I'm just saying that a guy like Trump - loud, brash, uses simple words, doesn't do background research - definitely appeals to a guy like Chris.

    11. Oh, God, now I can't get a Trump/Bores mashup out of my head. "Americans are fustrated because they're not winning. They're looking at the economy and saying 'What? Well, what a bunch of shit burritos with diarrhea salsa!' Immigrants are knocking on our door and we're going and answering it and saying 'what?' and the immigrant is us with a sombrero and an accent that's supposed to be Mexican but sounds French and so we slam the door on them after yelling 'git the FUCK off my property!' But they won't get near our houses after I build a wall out of all my unsold copies of Ghost Hunting 2.0."

  20. You know, the first time he came back with the Irate Gamer, I could buy it, because IG was his only source of income. It's the only thing people still watched him for. The second time, it just got "fustrating". Now, it's just annoying. And this is coming from a person who didn't really care for the Irate Gamer (pre-"Opening Up" video, that is.)

    1. If he brought back IG Neo, started making regular IG episodes and stopped all of his other content, be would probably make a little more money than he is (or isn't) right now.

    2. Yeah, bad as his game reviews are; they at least have more to talk about than talking about worthless crap nobody wants. Even that Bazooka Joe Irate the 80s had plenty of material to riff for how bad it was (even the 90s weren't all sunshine and puppy dogs; despite what others might think, myself included is my response to his bashing of the 90s bubble gum comics). If this is indeed the year he finally self-destructs, I guess I'll always have "Bores in Doors". "GTFO MAH PROPERTY!"

    3. And we'll have years of failure from the Bores to look back on.

    4. And is it me, or was Irate Gamer a little bit fun back then? I mean, the show was bad, but the jokes were stale, and the show was fun to point and laugh at. Ever since he brought IG back, the jokes make no sense and Chris does too much mugging to the camera.

    5. I know. When I first came across Chris in 2011; I actually found the badness kind of fascinating. Now, seeing Boring Man devolve into the well of Skylanders; ghosts and cheaply made swag is just kind of sad. I actually found the spectacular kind of badness from Chris to be much more interesting to make fun of than just merely ripping off you-know-who.

      Delete
  21. Imo, when Chris announced his retirement, I believe be was referring to regular Irate Gamer episodes – not Irate the 80s or the shilling tech videos. Makes sense, as his attempt at releasing 2-3 episodes a month didn't work out for him, and they take the most amount of work.

    1. Still doesn't make sense since his output was still minimal at best.

    3. Hell, the NX will definitely be out before he gets to the NES; so he may as well cut his losses given how abysmal those videos were. As for the 80s videos, even Seth MacFarlane would find his obsession too overblown. Heaven forbid he talk about something other than toys or food (or acknowledge the decade's failures in those areas; like Go-Bots Rock Lords or New Coke). Given how August 8 marks the 30th anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie (the animated one, not the live-action ones); I highly doubt we'll be seeing that look at the G1 toys/show he teased in the comments of the Colorforms video.

  23. Hell, *I* fit the definition of semi-retired better than him! I still make videos on occasion, but it's not my focus.

    On that note, I am considering uploading a new riff in light of POKeMON GO. I may have linked that video I'm thinking of tearing up a long time ago, though... but I still think it's laughable now that 10-11 years have passed since then.

  24. How the hell does Chris still have almost 160,000 subscribers after all this time?

    1. It is presumed that most of his subscribers are fake- compare the actual views his videos get to the number of subscribers.

      Admittedly, this is also true for many Cinemassacre videos, but his most famous franchise, AVGN, gets views near or surpassing his subscriber count, even factoring in that many people view them on cinemassacre.com instead of YouTube.

    2. How does Chris have so many subscribers?

      We're talking about the channel of someone who's barely intelligible book of Scooby Dooisms and self-aggrandizing has more 5 star reviews on Amazon than it does genuine sales. Those numbers are inflated for one reason....and it's not because he 'invented a new field of psychology' ;)

      Welcome to the world of Bores. A world where the only way even your own mother approves of your crappy work is if you pretend to be her. The world of fraud and pitiful self delusion.

    6. I agree. I didn't watch the livestream, but I'm quite looking forward to Sonic Mania and Sonic Project 2017. I generally try not to associate with the more hostile sections of the fanbase and at least try to give newer entries a chance before I decide I don't like them.

    2. Yeah, it's much easier for him to just fart out subscription box videos or reviews of garbage tech than try to find an NES classic to bash or make a new chapter in the Artistic License History of Video Games. Even that last masturbatory 80s video was at least something to really mock; canyons in research and tasteless "jokes" be damned.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I think you're completely right on that one. It's just sad to see he's throwing the few fans that he still has away doing this. (I'm saying this as a person who likes his content.)

    4. I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that someone who's YouTube career consisted of stealing someone else's idea, jokes and identity then having everything handed to him would have no work ethic.

    5. I'm really curious to see what's in store for future Irate Gamer videos. If he's really retiring his main show, his sub count will drop like hell.

      Also, this cracked me up big time. https://twitter.com/TheBestGamers/status/756348715804168193

  31. Hey BatDan! Here's a suggestion. If Bores is actually retired maybe you can make a PewdiePie Sucks blog or a Game Grumps sucks blog.

    1. Egoraptor Sucks would be more appropriate than Game Grumps Suck. Besides, PewDiePie is actually improving his content now. If there is a new [Insert Person Here] Sucks blog, it should be of that reptilian fuck who has over 4 million undeserved subscribers.

      Delete
    2. Or perhaps Dark Side Phil Sucks; given how incompetent he is as a let's player and makes even more inappropriate jokes than Chris, and is so unable to see his own flaws that he'd likely blame "input lag" on badly playing Super Mario Bros. or even Sesame Street Countdown!

    1. Well, the new Iron Man is going to be a young African-American woman; so that doesn't bother me. I just hope they're able to recreate the same pulp style that made the original film so special. Glad Joe Johnston was able to channel that same energy into Captain America: The First Avenger (my second-favorite single-hero Phase 1 MCU film behind the first Iron Man).

    2. Not at all surprised there. While he could theoretically work with someone else editing videos other than his own (that's the one area I can damn him with faint praise); I'm not sure who would want to hire him given his multitude of other flaws. I guess all that's left for me to do is wonder what NES classic he'll bash next or how much further he'll drag out the Artistic License History of Video Games (it's highly unlikely he'll get to the NES before the NX launches).

    3. So apparently he used crowdfunding for another season. Anyone going to address the elephant in the room?

      Delete
    4. How much money could he possibly have raised? I don't think his pre-teen fanbrats saving up their allowance could have added up to all that much.

      Delete
    5. Never mind that fact that he COULD'VE used Patreon instead, except he saids it is not for him.

      Delete
    6. I still don't get how creating an episode costs so much money that it becomes difficult to create one. If he already has the camera equipment, the video editing software, the games he's reviewing, and it's just him doing the episodes in his bedroom, why does it cost money let alone a lot of money? This is coming from the guy who uses cheap green tablecloths from Walmart as green screens to cut down on costs. Does this mean that all the money is somehow being poured into the stupid padding skits and every episode so desperately needs them?

      Delete
    7. yeah this is something about Chris that;s bothered me for awhile now, how he claim videos cost a lot of money. Based on how other Youtube creators talk the real issue is making money in order to survive hence why some use Patreon, which makes sense. If you're a small Youtube creator you're probably not making a huge amount of money to survive which means you either need a part time or full time job to get by which of course means losing time to work on more content. But the way Chris talks it's like one video whether it's 5mins or 20mins or an hour(now there's a though an hour long Irate Gamer episode) it most cost a lot, I would imagine doing something more ambitious or taking about something rare would cost quite a bit of money but not covering a common NES game(which I believe all his current episodes are) for less than 15mins with an overuse of green screens which he already uses a cheap substitute for.

    8. Why do episodes cost so much? Hmmm....could Chris Bores....be.....a liar?

  40. Look at what someone posted on his Season 6 announcement post, although I can't tell if it's for real or sarcastic:

    What always keeps me coming back to you is the fact that you truly care about what the fans want and you work SUPER hard to please em all! That is true dedication. Good luck in all your endeavors and thanks for caring! I hope I will have a following as big as yours someday and when I do I will remember how you treated me and that will be how I treat everyone else!
