I didn't see a thread about season 3 of Board James, and I was quite surprised by that (I know the forums are pretty dead, but still...). I'm obviously a lot bigger video game fan than a board game fan, but for a long time I've preferred Board James videos over AVGN, and there have been Board James threads on this subforum before, so I figured this was a thread worth having.

Currently season 3 has 5 episodes, and they've gone to some very unexpected places. The latest episode especially was... Well, it was something. Just watch it, OK? You likely won't be disappointed.

However, I recommend watching the season from the very beginning, which is why I embedded the playlist for the entire season. I'll also give you links to seasons 1 and 2 in case you missed them, but you don't need to watch them to enjoy season 3. Although the premise of season 3 is pretty tightly wrapped into what happens in the last episode of season 2 (a.k.a. episode 19, a.k.a. Dream Phone), so watching it first is highly recommended.

New episode featuring the Angry Video Game Nerd. Also probably a season finale in spite of it only being the sixth episode of the season.

Spoiler
That was bit of a mind fuck, wasn't it? Board James seems to have been the prequel to AVGN, which I did not see coming. Either that or they are supposed to just be the same person that swaps back and forth between two distinct personalities.

Anyway, looks like James is switching focus back to making more AVGN, so that's something to look forward to, I guess.

Kinda wish I had thought about making a thread(s) for this series sooner (and surprised no one else had). Probably my most favorite thing James produces outside of AVGN episodes.

I'm 90% certain he's going to keep them going, as he has said here when he brought "Board James" back; http://cinemassacre.com/2015/03/30/the- ... ard-james/

At the very least we should get at least 2 more episodes~

The really funny/creepy thing about this is;

A while ago in a random Youtube or Cinemassacre comment I read (I don't recall exactly where or when it was) I remember a comment that was a fan developed theory that Board James was/is turning into the AVGN... and now here we are lol.

Yeah, I've been enjoying the new season so far. Definitely has some if the best writing I've seen from him.

Hoo boy. You guys should check out the latest AVGN. The plot thickens.

Probably my least favorite episode of the season, if not the entire series, which is kind of funny considering that 13 Dead End Drive is one of the two games I've played, that has a Board James episode.

I just felt that this episode didn't focus enough on the game, and instead was more about how messed up Board James has become. I also didn't like how nonsensical the story was
Spoiler
at least until it was revealed that James has actually been in prison this whole time.

I guess the nonsensical story kind of makes sense considering that Board James has completely lost it at this point, but I still didn't think it was great. Had some funny moments though; my favorite being Bootsy's death. :lol:


Also, it seems like the next episode is the last Board James episode for the foreseeable future:
Video Description wrote:Brace yourself, because the next episode will be the big finale! It will be the season finale, if not a series finale. In other words, at the moment, it's the final planned episode, just like DreamPhone was.

Angry Video Game Nerd delivered the Halloween episode, now it's time for Board James to ease your post-Halloween sadness.
I'm expecting him to just take a long break from it in order to be able to focus on AVGN, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see if we'll ever get more Board James after that.

SEASON 3 FINALE!
Episode 27 - Nightmare and beyond...

This is the last episode for the time being, least until he feels like revitalizing the series once again.

This was a mind fuck of an episode.
Spoiler
Whole "Inception" thing it was doing was pretty awesome, though hard to keep track of sometimes.

I don't think I will ever be able to look at Candy Land the same again :?

"Board James Mythology Explained"

THIS VIDEO CONTAINS HEAVY SPOILERS,
not just about this season, but the overarching (meta)plot of Board James, straight from the James Rolfe himself

My Thoughts
Spoiler
As i said before, I really liked the Inception thing, but it made it hard to follow. Also glad they explained the tally graffiti, cause I had no idea what else to think otherwise.

I liked how it was tied in to AVGN, and am glad that they're not sequel/prequel to each other, instead being elseworld/alt personality. Leaves me hopeful for more future crossovers in the future (Motherfucker "Clarence" Mike for AVGN! BOOK IT VINCE!)
