Chris' Absolutley Abysmal Toy Fair Coverage

Sometimes, you see something so astonishingly bad, so terribly misinformed, so very little effort put into it, that you can't just ignore it.

From February 17-20, NYC hosted the annual American International Toy Fair, and amazingly Chris got invited. I guess Puppet Steve is that popular? Toy Fair is invite-only by the way.
If you recall his E3 coverage, it's pretty similar. Well, without all the interviews because I doubt Chris has enough clout to tell random people "Can you pretend this puppet is real and it's interviewing you?" He's not the Jim Henson Company or Robert Smigel.
But it is loaded with all the usual misinformation that Chris is known for. What fun!

I won't go over every video, my sanity can only take so much. It's more the lowlights.

This year, Chris did something different and did some live coverage using YouTube's streaming feature. It went about as well as you might expect, in that it was a total disaster.
The video quality looked like a cell phone from 2006. It lagged in spots, causing commentary to go out. Everything was blurry. Perhaps it's why Chris stopped after 11 videos and just went to post-production commentary. This will hurt him.
Chris barely even tried the Steve voice. He was basically doing his normal voice but with "attitude". Was he afraid of people staring at him?
He also shows that he still can't ad-lib to save his life. Every toy he looked at was "super cool". Not just cool, "super cool". Chris really does feel like the embodiment of Steve Buscemi's "How do you do, fellow kids" scene...
Most of the live coverage was FNAF related, because of course it was. He still calls Chica a guy (how long has he been doing this?)

There's also Bendy coverage, Stikbots (whatever those are), toys based on Hello Neighbor (why?), and then we get into the reaaaal bad shit with a video on Transformers. It features one of the major problems with his coverage, Chris not getting names right or even trying to say their names even though they're written right on the box. My informant notes how he just says "this Predacon" when the box clearly has their names. That is some next level lazy.
Even the clickbait title is lazy, using The Last Knight. Even though the toys have nothing do with that movie, and even then the movie came out months ago and it wasn't popular.

He followed that up with a video on Nickelodeon toys, specifically based on 90's Nicktoons. The mistakes really start adding up here. Referring to "Aaahh!!! Real Monsters" as just "the Real Monsters show", getting Oblina's name wrong (pronouncing it Oblika), and referring to Gerald from Hey Arnold as simply "Arnold's friend". Not like he was an important character or anything!

Following that one is a video on new Marvel Legends figures based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Chris' commentary makes it sound like he hasn't watched a single MCU movie.
It starts with him referring to Red Skull as "Red Hood", that's DC you fuck! Then he calls Ronan the Accuser "the villain from the second Thor movie". That was Malekith, and he looks nothing like Ronan. Ronan was the villain of Guardians of the Galaxy.
Then he shows a two-pack of Thor & Sif, and openly says he doesn't remember her name. I'll explain why this is bullshit soon.
Then he calls Yellow Jacket "the evil Ant-Man". Good lord, I know the MCU has a problem with creating memorable villains but you're not even trying!
The reason that Sif line, and really getting all these names wrong are complete bullshit, is that you can clearly see the names on the boxes! They're right behind the figures! How are you THIS terrible at this Chris? Is there something wrong with you?

Then a video on Lego sets (actual Lego, not the off-brand stuff) with cringy sketches involving his custom Lego Puppet Steve. He actually brought it with him just to do that... that is so lame.
He looks at $100 Harry Potter set, makes the old as fuck "Dumbledore is Gandalf" joke (that joke is old enough to have children), gets more things wrong like not recognizing Nearly Headless Nick or Professor Quirrel (you know, the villain of the first book & movie!) There's a reason these are problems I'll get into later...
"The cool spell hat" That's the Sorting Hat! Come on!
Then he shows Jurassic Park/World sets. The first one he refers to as "Manor house museum". Even though the box clearly says "Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate". He makes a terrible joke about the dinosaur bones being their "mummy". Even though those are Indoraptors, and the skeleton is a triceratops. You're not even trying!
He refers to the park security as "FBI agents". Unless there's FBI agents in the upcoming movie, then they're not FBI.
Then he looks at another set that he refers to as "Paradactyl Chase". Nooo it's called Pteranodon Chase, it says it right there on the box! Also, you don't pronounce the P in Pterodactyl or Pteranodon you hack.
Then another set that clearly has the Tyrannosaurus Rex, but he just refers to it as "dinosaurs". Come on Chris, the T-Rex is the mascot! You can't seriously be this lazy!

And now we get to the video that inspired me to make this post. One about new Pokemon toys. Bores and Pokemon, you know this will go well.

It all goes wrong when he refers to a Togetic figure as "full-grown Togepi". Just... wow. Not to mention wrong because Togetic isn't the final form anymore, it's Togekiss. Hell it's been Togekiss for 12 years now.
Then he refers to Marill as "Pikablu". What... year ... is it? I can't believe there's still someone that unironically uses Pikablu. Holy fuck.
Then he doesn't even try with Chinchou and Pidgey, simply calling them "this guy". You don't even know Pidgey? Come on!
Though he recognizes Staryu, he fails on Wurmple, Charjabug, Salandit, and Togedemaru.
Pichu is simply "the baby Pikachu", and he fails to name Larvitar and Pikipek
By the end of it, he doesn't even try to name Carvanha, Stufful, and Bounsweet.
Look, I get not knowing the Gen 7 Pokemon so easily, I would have trouble too as I have barely played the Gen 7 games (I found them so boring). But see I know how to do a little something called... research! If I don't know something, I look into it. And this is the problem I wanted to address with these videos.

They're very clearly done in post-production, with post-commentary and visual edits. This isn't the live stuff he tried during Toy Fair. Chris purposely recorded all these videos with misinformation, not caring if the name was on the box, or if the name could easily be looked up. He could have bothered to look up Togetic or Marill or Pidgey or all the Alola Pokemon, but he didn't even try. He could have double checked who these MCU characters were, or those Predacons, but he didn't lift a finger. This further showcases how Puppet Steve is nothing more than low effort garbage that acts as dangling keys for easily-entertained kids.

Chris as a content producer has completely given up. He's not even accomplishing the bare minimum. As awful as Irate Gamer was, at least there was a small sense of trying. It wasn't good, but at least you could somewhat tell he tried. This is Chris not even doing that. Does he no longer have pride in his own work? Or is this just shit to pay the bills because his ghost hunting garbage will never get off the ground.

EDIT: Seems I spoke too soon about interviews. He actually did one! But not as Puppet Steve. In fact, it's pretty clear that Steve is in there via green screen, and when it cuts to a close up of the interviewee, you see Chris' hand holding an iPhone (instead of a mic). When Steve is on screen, the interviewee is looking down. That must have been awkward. "Hey can I film you looking down at something even though nothing is there?" "Why?" "Just do it!"

  1. My bet is it's just "shit to pay the bills because his ghost hunting garbage never got off the ground." Man, Bores sank even lower than the Titanic when it came to the Toyfair coverage as opposed to E3...

  2. I have commented before that Puppet Steve is worse than Irate Gamer and and Dan just highlighted why. Puppet Steve is literally the most cynical approach to creating a YouTube channel. Chris chose toys because that is family friendly for advertisers and happens to be a lucrative segment for YouTube. He hides behind a puppet because he knows he cannot have his name associated with Puppet Steve because he fears toxicity. Chris gets the videos out as quickly as possible because he is only in this for the money and doesn't care much about the toys themselves.

  16. Part of me is glad that he doens't do game reviews any more. As many awesome and memorable games as have come out in the past couple of years, could you imagine if he tried to talk about them? Like talking about Nyer ah-toe-MATT-uh starring B2, and how nobody knows that it's secretly a sequel to Dragon Guard. Saying how Samus Returns is the perfect predecessor to Metroid 2. Calling Shadow of the Colossals the long-awaited sequel to Last Guardian. And of course, anything thing he could've ever said about Undertale would probably have resulted in him getting literally crucified.

    4. If he reviewed Project Diva, he probably would have called Hatsune Miku Segas other mascot. He would complain about the difficulty of extreme being too hard and say it’s stupid to press left on the dpad and circle at the same time. And probably say things like “Why are they all the songs in Japanese!?! They couldn’t get anyone to dub over the songs?!?” Or “I’m not sure who voiced these characters, but ether they used auto tune or they have the most pathetic people to play them!”

    5. Dark Souls Remastered is just too hard! Why isn't there an easy mode? Dodging? That for wusses. No matter what you do, you die, you die, you die. This game sucks! Worst Nintendo game ever! (never even reaches the first boss)

    6. Now I am a huge fan of the fire emblem series, since it was first released on the Gameboy Advanced. Fire EmblemAwakening is the long awaited sequel fans have been waiting for. The goal of the game is that an evil dictator who has controlled the entire nation and you and a rag tag team of freedom fighters have to put an end to his reign. The gameplay is simple, you land move your characters and attack. Simple as (insert food joke here). You have a large roster of characters to choose from, my favorite is Olivia. My only complain is that some of the characters suck, most of them miss their target, and some die quicker! Damnit Lissa, your useless!!

    7. Imagine him reviewing the Friday The 13th game on the PS4/Xbox One and getting facts wrong like saying "Created by Talltelle Games, you get to play as either, any of the 24 camp counselors from the first four films or even Jason himself." and then about 2 minutes later in the review. "Now I've been a fan of Jason Voorhees, ever since he first appeared in the original film, but this is the best they could come up with? What an assload of assburgers!".

      Then he reviews Undertale and Cuphead and receives like 20,000 death threats for bashing both games. Seriously, I bet he would.

      Delete
    8. "The problem with playing as Jason is that these counselors never fall asleep, so you can't enter their dreams to attack them! What good is being Jason if you can't even do cool ghost stuff?"

  18. I thought that was a nice Nintendo Direct today. I'm excited for some of those games. A little surprised at the salt which seems to mostly come from three groups:

    People who are salty about ports on Nintendo Switch.

    Switch owners who are salty that the 3DS is still getting games.

    Extremist PS4 fans who are salty that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is coming to other platforms. They seem particularly upset about Xbox One.

  20. Hey guys, remember the Game Dude aka Alexander Badr?

    If you ever wonder why he stop making game reviews and disappear from the Internet, here's a very interesting video explaining why:

    3. There was also Game Dude's sole IMDB entry, a short film called "DealBreaker".

      I watched the first two minutes of it then scrubbed through the rest to see if Game Dude would show up after the first scene, looks like that's all he's in.

      It seems to be a short film about a gay man trying to find love but always finds something wrong (deal breakers) with his prospects. The film starts off with him on a coffee date with Alexander. He bails on the date when he notices that Alexander is wearing pink panties.

      Here's the video, for those so inclined

      His acting actually wasn't that bad. I mean, his character was supposed to be an extremely socially awkward sexual deviant, and he nailed it (no pun intended). Of course, maybe he's just convincing as that character for the same reason that Bores is convincing as a greedy and ignorant bully with a God complex?

      Also, he had more screen time, more lines, and more interaction with co-stars that Bores did in any production outside their own content.

He's made a ton of mistakes, particularly in his earlier videos. But he at least admits his mistakes and tries to improve from them (unlike a certain someone we all know). He makes very interesting videos and it's clear that he has a passion for what he does.

    2. Hmm I searched older post and saw some people talking about him. Seems a lot of followers of this blog don't like him, I don't know what BatDan's take is. I'm honestly not interested enough to check it out.

      I'm not surprised to see a divide on opinions, though. Most followers of this blog have mixed opinions of nearly every reviewer that's brought up. Even though we're all supposed AVGN fanboys, I've seen a lot of mixed opinions there. I've seen mixed opinions of PewDiePie as well as many Channel Awesome reviewers.

      I do wish the Irate Gamer/Chris Bores fans following this blog could be as civilized in defending him as you are with MrEnter. It seems only the people who "hate" Bores ever say anything positive about him, his "fans" can only say negative things about others.

    5. Well, Mr. Enter is notorious for getting into a rant over the slightest flaw that anyone would just call for 1 second. I used to like him, but he's been more complaining than actually reviewing! Plus, he seems to be taking shows way too seriously and need I mention the way he treats his fans/non-fans?

      Delete
    6. "The way he treats his fans/non-fans." What are you referring to?

      Also, I think it's great that Mr. Enter takes shows really seriously. If people didn't take TV shows seriously, then everything would be like Teen Titans Go.

      Delete
    7. I heard that he's not too fond of people who disagree with him. That's actually not a good thing.

      True that he takes shows seriously. The problem is that he takes cartoons TOO seriously! He tends to absolutely explode at even the most minor of things that nobody would care about. That's the problem!
      -_-

    8. True, he's admitted that he has problems with taking criticism. But at least he admits it's one of his flaws. At least he doesn't reply to people with salty "you have no friends" comments or poses as his mother and insults people.

      I'll admit that sometimes he dwells on things that don't matter. But he STILL makes legit points and gives a thorough analysis of what he reviews. It's obvious he knows how to review things. We're at least able to see why the thing he's reviewing is bad or good.

  34. Chris Bore-ess may have retired the Irate Gamer but the practice of plagiarism on YouTube lives on. A relatively new YouTuber known as Top Hat Gaming Man took video game footage from a smaller YouTube channel with a bit over 1,000 subscribers. Then Top Hat cropped out the other person's brand name in the bottom and used the clip in his own video without giving credit to the source. To be fair, Top Hat did apologize and offered to remove the video when he was called out on this.

  35. I know it's been nearly six years since that horrible E begging video, but it still really pisses me off. Mainly because Chris has deleted so many harmless videos, yet for some reason is keeping this one up. It sort of comes across as him saying: "I'm still proud of this video! I'm really glad I did it!" I guess he fails to notice that keeping this video up makes him a massive hypocrite since he later considered kickstarter himself.

    I'm going to be honest, part of me REALLY wants to report this video for bullying. Because...well, that's that the purpose of the video was to begin with. But I'm not doing it because something about it just feels wrong. I don't know, what do y'all think? Note: I haven't nor do I plan to report the video. What I'm asking is if you think it is wrong for someone to do that.

    1. Bullying implies intent, and ability, to intimidate. The E-begging video is just a bad attempt at satire that might have bullying qualities if the target were someone smaller or weaker. Bores in this video is a gnat swarming around an an elephant- James Rolfe has no reason to even think about him- and leaving the video up gives posterity the best possible historical record on who he was, and how he comprehended the angry-reviewer landscape.

  36. IG has always been bad but at least his earlier videos when he was reviewing legimatelly bad games had some merit to them.

    I haven't looked into this in great detail yet, but already just hearing this, I find it hard to know who and how much to believe when it comes to problems like these.

    1. Allison Pregler posted a couple of threads that had the guts of the matter but that was a few days ago. Not sure what developments occurred this week.

      In any case, it was clear there were massive problems at CA right around the debut of To Boldly Flee.

    2. The Walkers can kiss a toilet seat as far as I'm concerned. I have little sympathy for people supportive of the screwed-up, entitled morons who put feelings over reason.

  39. There are two things I despise in this world.

    Call of Duty games and Call of Duty fanboys.

  40. I haven't really kept up with internet drama, but I've heard that Phelous and Obscurus Lupa are in some sort of feud with Doug Walker. What's going on exactly?

    3. This is basically what happens when a bunch of crazy couch nerds obsessed with anime/video games and have no people skills whatsoever try to run a serious business. I know this because I had a friend through middle school and high school and past college who morphed into and hung out with other people who were very much like the people at channel awesome. They would have a lot of drama in their group, which is something that would only multiply ten fold if they ran a serious business.

    4. .......................

      .......I've got nothing!

      I have no words to express just how absolutely disgusted I am at this! How does a once-cherished site have management THIS evil? I always thought Doug Walker was a very nice guy, but after seeing this, I now know he's just a big, fat jerk! And Michaud is just DSP as a manager! I feel sorry for all those contributors who had to suffer at their hands!

      I guess "Channel Awful" is being too nice! That site should be called "Channel Anarchy"!

  41. Doug Walker looks like a psychopath now that he’s bald

  42. In the newest Steve video, he's moved up to
    misquoting Shakespeare, many times. After repeated listening, I am convinced that the first example is "Romeo, o Romeo, wherefort thar ow."

    1. And Linkara was the one guy who defended Doug despite all the abusive work conditions back in the day. Must have gotten really bad.

  44. As bad as we make Chris Bores out to be, at least he never abused other people.

  45. Does James Rolfe know of the Channel Awesome drama, by any chance?

    1. Maybe, but if he is, I doubt he wants to get involved, which is understandable. This isn't his deal. Better he stays out of it.

  46. Remember when Chris reviewed a carry bag that was on Kickstarter? Well, fast forward to 2018 and Ashens has reviewed... A carry bag on Kickstarter!

    To be fair, Ashens did go into far more detail than Chris but it is still clearly a shill video because Ashens didn't want to pay for an expensive bag.

    Don't get me wrong, I do like Asens a lot. I just think that the Adpocalypse caused him to make a couple of questionable decisions. I criticized Chris for shilling a bag on Kickstarter and I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't do the same with Ashens.

  47. The latest wisdom from Chris Bore-ess. He wrote on Facebook that gun control advocate Emma Gonzalez "looks and fits the psychological profile of someone who is a highschool social outcast that is psychologically damaged, and/or been abused in some way."

    Chris goes on to claim that he has interacted with dozens of girls with similar looks and dressing habits and they all carried the same baggage.

    2. Ugh, there's plenty of legitimate points to bring up... but yeah, just attack the way she looks.
      He's such a fucking douchebag.

    3. I do partly agree with Chris there. There's a lot you can say by the looks a person, but entirely? No.

    4. To be clear, I have no issue with anyone advocating or opposing gun control. Like abortion, it is pointless to argue about gun control because most people are entrenched in their beliefs. My issue is Chris implying this young woman may be psychologically damaged or even abused simply because of the way she looks. It's mean spirited, dodges the issue and frankly, goes against Buddhist principles which if memory serves Chris claimed to follow.

    5. Okay, I'm calling it. Chris does not follow ANY damn religion. Chris, STOP saying you follow any sort of God you lying sack of crap. Saying garbage like this makes it pretty clear you're a sociopath. Get some therapy NOW. You're not healthy.

    6. I have two words for Emma: black market.

    3. No, you're Chris so I said exactly what I mean. That includes the "you too", I appreciate your well wishes to the group and sincerely wish the best for you and yours as well.

    4. No actually I AM Linda and have always been Linda from birth. You reassigning my gender and age can not change the fact that I am female and way older than my son, Christopher Bores. Sorry Dave your leftest views on identity politics show your ignorance to the actual facts of my person.
