Chris just posted something... interesting to say the least. I'll get to that in a bit, but first the other video he posted a few days ago.
This one he shills another box, for the "meal replacement" drink Soylent. The very same drink that was found to have more lead than the legal amount approved by California and thus is very toxic to drink! Not to mention, naming your product after a movie that involved turning people into food. But Chris don't care, he's getting paid! The fans certainly don't like it. Lots of dislikes and unsubscribes. Chris really doesn't get it, but MONEY!
What's weird is that in the beginning of the video, he said he just did a Box Wars "the other day". Last Box Wars: July 14th. Soylent video: August 1st. Once again, Chris has no idea how time works. Either that or he filmed this like a couple days after the Box Wars and didn't post it until now, and that makes no sense since it's a two minute video where just shills a product, not something edited with "thought" put into it.
Now the newest video, hoo boy is this a doozy. Chris has been "asked" by Wisdom Tree to promote a Kickstarter, one that's a product to play all their bible games, either a "plug-and-play" device or an NES cartridge.
First of all, Wisdom Tree is still around? I thought they died out with LJN, Acclaim and all the other shit-slingers of the 8-bit era. I know that Super 3D Noah's Ark was released on Steam last year, but I thought that was another company that just had the rights, not Wisdom Tree themselves.
Second, and I really want to know this, why? Why would anyone want this? These games were shit, they've been called shit for years, as far back as when Seanbaby talked about terrible NES games. Who would fund this? *checks* Apparently 276 people have funded $22,329 and have far exceeded its goal of $16,500. ... Sooo where does this place on the tier of "irresponsible money spending"? I imagine it 's up there with donating to "give me money to do nothing Patreons" and giving money to Christian Weston Chandler.
Third, why would you ask Chris Bores? He has never talked about your games. The most he's done is during that crappy portable NES "review" when he made a joke about it being able to play "games sent from heaven" and he's suddenly playing Bible Adventures. Other than that, he has said nothing. This is one of the least likely people to ask. Why not ask James Rolfe? He made three videos putting your games in the spotlight. Oh right, he probably doesn't want to promote a Kickstarter like this after the Cheetahman II one blew up in... his... GOD DAMN IT CHRIS! Are you done caring? Do you no longer have any shame? Are you just going to pretend the past never happened? Are you that desperate for money? I mean, you must be when you're considering doing a Kickstarter for more of your show (and you better explain why). This is just... wow.
Surprisingly, the fans aren't too mad about this one. There's more likes, and there's not a ton of negative comments. There are, mostly people wondering the same as me. Why do this?
Also, I'm pretty sure Chris doesn't understand the concept of unlicensed NES games. In the video itself, he mentions how Wisdom Tree's games had "different cartridges". That's because they weren't licensed by Nintendo, thus they have a different casing and parts inside that bypass the lockout chip. It's really amazing how little you know despite having grown up in the era. Can't even bother to do proper research.
At this point, I'm just waiting for the Kickstarter. I want to see how insane it is.
