Retired? I Thought You Said You Were Tired...

So... that blog lambasted Chris Bores for announcing his intention to continue his Irate Gamer show, shortly after a sample video of that series' next episode was posted. As a matter of fact, the insightful title of the guy's latest blog post is So Much For Retirement! Actual "Irate Gamer" is Coming Back. Because how dare Bores bring back something that people like so much... for whatever reason.

I guess the chucklehead who runs the blog failed to recall that Doug Walker once retired the Nostalgia Critic in 2012 and it took him a few months to go back to the well. Certainly, far less time than it took Bores to do the same. I've got dates and everything...

September 14, 2012 - Nostalgia Critic is "retired"
January 13, 2013 - Nostalgia Critic is unretired
Elapsed Time Of Retirement: Four Months

July 21 , 2014 - Irate Gamer is announced as "retired" in subtle mention of Chris Bores bio
March 11, 2015 - Irate Gamer is "unretired" with a teaser video
Elapsed Time Of Retirement: Eight Months*

How sad is it that the only "angry reviewer" type to keep that gimmick retired - save for special occasions - is Kenny The NC17 Guy?

*In fairness, the most recent episode and final episode of his "fourth season" was posted in April. It would be around eleven months retired, but still a longer period than Walker.
