Vlog – Scaling Back

Just a short vlog letting people know what’s new with me.

The core of it is me essentially saying that Jyger’s Rant will now be bi-weekly instead of weekly, so once every other Wednesday. So with that said, the next part of the Turbo review will be next week.

Jyger’s Favourite 5 – 5 Videogame Locations I NEVER Want To Vacation To

D’oh! I cannot believe I forgot to post this last week, but here it is, the first episode of Jyger’s Favourite 5.

This series will act as a sort of companion piece/side-series to Jyger’s Rant. Think of it in the same terms as my previous lists, in that they aren’t in any order, they’re just my favourites or least favourites of whatever category I’m doing for the video. Also, this series won’t have a strict schedule and will be independent of any story-lines I do.

Images and audio belong to Haruhi Suzumiya, Kingdom Hearts, Super Mario, Resident Evil, Legend of Zelda, and Silent Hill…Oh, and Ed McMahon.

Vlog – Apparently I Suck lol

So yeah, just keeping my viewers up to date on what’s going on for this next week and also referencing just how much my ability to proof my content sucks.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 02 + New Schedule

Well, it’s a touch later than initially planned, but part 02 is finished. Oh, and special thanks to Linkara for allowing me to use a certain joke in this review. You’ll know it when you see it.

Speaking of which, I have decided that from now on, the episodes of Jyger’s Rant will be weekly, every Wednesday. It’s just easier if I keep myself to a schedule, I think. Now there will be stuff in the in-between, but the actual episodes of the primary series will be every Wednesday.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 01 + HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

WHOO-HOO!!! First anniversary, baby! FIRST ANNIVERSARY! And because on anniversaries we’re allowed to do whatever we want, I have begun my Turbo review by talking about the backstory leading up to it which, as you’ll see in later instalments of this review, will in turn lead into some of the biggest plot holes you’ve EVER seen. I know, most people would consider this a prologue or intro, but I’m just different like that.

So yeah, one year…Wow. Doesn’t feel like it. Although maybe that’s because for a long while I kinda forgot about it, which I regret A LOT. I wish that I could go back and fill that time with content, but I can’t. Instead, I can only hope to not make that mistake again.

…Yes, that’s right. I have ultimately made my decision regarding a question I’ve been asking myself for weeks, and the answer is yes, I am sticking around. For how long? Well, I don’t really know yet. I guess for as long as I can do this without it getting TOO awful. lol

That said, I need to give some big thanks to my friends and family who have helped me through all this and encouraged me to keep at it. I have a need to thank JewWario and Linkara for being huge inspirations and for giving me encouragement when I most needed it. I have a need to thank my girlfriend PinkRangerWannabe and my occasional co-star N. Harmonik for sticking with me and giving me their support. Most of all, I have a need to thank each and every one of you that have checked me out over the past year, because it’s all been SO worth everything negative that ever occurred. So thank you all for making this a great year, and let’s hope to make the year to come even greater.

Welcome to Jyger’s Rant.

…WTF&W?!?! O_O

So I was going over the site stats last night for my blog, and learned something kinda odd: Total viewcount for March was 1,081, thus beating out February’s 1,042. HUH?

Pretty close re-enactment of my face when I read the stats. And for some odd reason, PinkRangerWannabe wants to wake up to THIS every morning...o_O

At first I thought I was being punk’d, like it was an April Fools prank, but after being reassured that couldn’t happen, I began to analyse how this could’ve possibly happened, since February was without question my best month. And that’s when it hit me what must’ve happened, and in that case, I feel I owe a few apologies.

Last Sunday, I released a blog entry stating my intentions to end Jyger’s Rant as both a video series and a blog. Now people started to check that out right away, but not the flood of people who came in after what I did next: I told my friend Morgan Meryl on Twitter about what was going on, all the while forgetting to take out Linkara’s tag in the tweets as I kinda brought it up in response to something they were talking about. As a result, Lewis and EVERYONE that was following him at that exact moment saw it, and thus the floodgates were opened. Whoops.

So yeah, sorry about that folks. And for anyone that might be wondering this, I did not mean to do that as a publicity stunt, honest. And to be still perfectly honest, I STILL don’t know if I plan to continue this after my Turbo review. I have some ideas of what I’d like to do if I do continue, N. Harmonik has some ideas of stuff we could do, but nothing’s concrete as of yet. So yeah, while it might not necessarily be the case, I’m going into my Turbo review like it’s my last.

That said, it won’t just be ONE vid, obviously since it’s a movie review and I have YouTube size restrictions to work around. But unlike with previous situations where I’ve had to do that, I’ll likely be stretching the review out a bit to give myself and the people watching a breather. Also, in addition to talking about the Turbo movie on its own, I’ll also be taking some time to fill in the backstory for anyone going into this review that isn’t as big a PR fan as I am. So yeah, I’ll be going over a few details that some might consider trivial, but honestly, I think you kinda need to know ’em in order to get just what a massive fail this movie is.

Anyway, that’s pretty much all from me for right now. With the date just 10 days away, I gotta get collecting screencaps. Ja ne!

I’ve Come To A Decision…Kinda + Fortune Street First Impressions

Okay, so I’ve thought about it, and I honestly still don’t know if I want to continue Jyger’s Rant, BUT I have decided that since I DID kinda advertise my intent to do so, I WILL be doing my review of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie for the anniversary of my blog. Will my blog continue beyond that? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see. But for now, expect my review of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie to be released on April 11th, and maybe a few random rants between now and then.

Oh, one other thing. Recently I purchased a game very closely related to one reviewed on YCPT by JewWario, Fortune Street. It’s not bad at all, though I get the feeling it was most certainly made to be a party game. That kinda blows, though, since it seems like if I’m gonna give a good impression on it to people that might be interested, I’m gonna need one or two more people……..Hmm…

Jyger’s Rant = R.I.P.

I’m done making those stupid videos. It was a mistake to even try. I have low-grade tech, I can’t afford to get better tech, and my view counts are absolutely pitiful.

I’m done trying to entertain. Clearly no one cares what some Linkara wannabe with Asperger’s thinks about geek stuff or what happens in his work place. The only time I was ever relevant was when I was being flamed for coming to Lewis’ defence.

And now…now even my own girlfriend has told me that my videos weren’t good and that my blog is dull and boring. Heck, she’s actually got a following on deviantArt now, though I will say that I actually have my fair share of views for my TGWTG posters…

So this is pretty much it. I guess I just wasn’t meant to amount to anything in this world where I felt I belonged. I’ll still be doing those posters though, and maybe from time to time I’ll share some thoughts on the blog, but overall, Jyger’s Rant is pretty much dead. To anyone that actually cared about my work, I thank you for sticking with me, and I hope that you’ll find entertainment elsewhere.

In the meantime though, there is one last thing I can do that I do rather well: Cheap plugs. For anyone that watched my show and found enjoyment in it, I personally recommend SF Debris’ Opinionated Video Reviews, they are simply fabulous. Also, Confused Matthew, the Nostalgia Critic, MarzGurl, JesuOtaku, JewWario, and of course, Linkara of Atop The Fourth Wall and History of Power Rangers and Iron Liz of the Pen & Paper Corner. They are highly entertaining and far better at their jobs than I…

… … …Goodbye.
