Lets Play: Al Chest Breach

"I play games, I record them, then I break them"
Al Chest Breach, Youtube channel description

Al Chest Breach, also known as Brown Bear Breach after he decided that a camouflage suit made him look like a bear, is a Let's Player, mainly playing Bethesda games like Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. He has a tendency to be silly, lives on the moon, has a tendency to be incredibly silly, likes to talk to everything around and yes, he has tendency to be very very silly.

He started off playing and reviewing New Vegas mods, but later started his Minecraft: Go West series, Fallout 3: Modded Playthrough, Skyrim Mods and Cat Tales (not the things on their backs), as well as some other random games. Every now and then, he also makes a montage out of clips from one of his games, mostly New Vegas, like the famous Brahmin Hunter or Overencumbered Man.

Nowadays, while not chilling in his moon-house, he mostly plays New Vegas and Skyrim mods, although there is always some other content dropping in.

Al Chest Breach's channel as a whole provides examples of these tropes:

  • A Birthday, Not a Break: Thrice!
    • Harold Duggart dies in the middle of Bobby's partty.
    • Much later in the series, Waffles dies during Robbie's birthday.
    • Not long after Waffles , during Robbie's next birthday, many people in town died of old age and of other causes. The main 3 casualties were: Steven Duggart, Pudge Farks, and even Bobby Duggart.
  • Accidental Murder: Mageru 5000-100 didn't mean to shoot his love interest, Mikel, he only wanted to shoot his door. Too bad the bullet went through the door.
  • Action Bomb: Chumpkins, the exploding cat.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Oh so often, mostly running away from important stuff to look at... less-than-important stuff. As an example, while on a driving quest, he suddenly jumped out of the car to go sit next to a seagull. In the middle of a street. He then proceeded to sing about it.
  • Back from the Dead: Bobby Duggart, or rather his ghost. Harold has been brought back twice!
  • Badass Boast: Oddly enough, in the midst of all the silliness, he tends to drop a few good boasts. Notably: "Who wants to die first? None of you? All right, it's gonna be all of you." Which he says in the exact same tone as anything else he says!
    • One of particular note comes from War Trash - Part 8. "I'm a magician. I make people disappear."
  • Badass Longcoat: Played for Laughs. The Tube Blanket a custom-built leather duster with an absurd damage threshold (meaning it absorbs bullets like some kind of bullet sponge).
  • Bash Brothers: Jerry McGhoulberry and Mister Cuddlesworth when Al is using a ranged weapon. Jerry and Al when he's using a melee weapon.
  • Berserk Button: Invisible walls and the game crashing usually gets him quite angered.
    • However, nothing quite gets his goat like talking over him when he's trying to talk. Protip: Don't do that.
      Al: We are all going to kill you brutally in like four seconds if you don't shut your goddamn mouth.
      • Or when NPCs start talking when he tries to talk. He goes nuts.
    • Also whenever sims don't do what he orders them to do.
  • Blatant Lies: Every time he uses console commands, he insists there's something horrible outside your window looking at you. There is.
  • British Accents: Likes to impersonate Doctor Who or others Brits every now and then, usually just before lampshading how horrible the accent is. While still in the accent, of course.
  • Casual Danger Dialog: Constantly.
  • Cats Are Mean: Mr.Blisters who killed Jimmy Cop's wife and tried to burn his house down.
  • Catch Phrase / Pre Ass Kicking One Liner / Pre-Mortem One-Liner : Has gradually built up a list of recurring quotes through his years of mod reviewing including: "Oh Jesus!", "Damn Hussy/Hussies", "Yeah, welcome to the real world! Road Rules.", "Welcome to Narnia!", "The whole world's exploding/after me!", "Show (him/her/them) a thing or two about (something, usually love)", "This Summer..." and especially "Looks like he/she just got [insert pop culture reference relevant to the manner/cause of death] "
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Very.
    • From his Fallout: New Vegas playthrough: "They love me in Novac! They all call me the Great Pumpkin and they ride me to school."
  • Character Development: Donny Cop changes more than any of Al's other characters, starting off as an exceptionally stupid little boy to a Dumbass Teenage Son with no friends, to a dapper sophisticate celebrity that everyone loves.
  • Comical Overreacting: Doc Mitchell once tried to steal the remains of Jerry and kill Al and his crew because Al kept using the Doc's house for a storage depot for his mod items.
    • See below.
  • Cosmic Retcon: In his Sims 3 playthrough, Bobby Duggart went backwards in time (reloaded an old save) to save his pets after social services took them away from him. Eagle-eyed viewers may note he actually went quite a ways back, seeing as how both The Grim Reaper and Doug Tanden came back.
  • Crapsack World: By having Mageru-5000 100 kill The Grim Reaper, Al has pretty much turned the world of The Sims into this.
  • Departmentof Redundancy Department: Super Deathclaw Cave to Super Deathclaw cave
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Poor Jameson.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Inverted. His very early videos are actually fairly straight up walkthroughs and reviews of mods, which can be quite jarring if you are used to watching his newer videos before seeing those.
  • Epic Fail: The most glorious may have been when he accidentally pulled Chumpkins into a land mine and was subsequently launched into the sky
  • Fat Bastard: Bobby Duggart, full stop.
  • Five-Man Band:
  • GASP!: Played for laughs; see above.
  • Genre Savvy: Gets this way from time to time.
  • Gonk: Jimmy Whistles, Cindy Ribbits, and The Elephant Man.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: "He may have killed some kids, but in my book that's okay!"
  • Heroic BSOD: Has the hilarious tendency to break out into (hopefully fake) tears whenever he sees something horrible, like when he gets his favorite companions killed. But he's quick to snap out of it and forget.
  • Hope Spot: When Al is convinced animals don't die in The Sims 3. The Hope Spot doesn't last long.
  • Ignored Enemy: Often discusses utterly nonsensical things with his companions during hectic firefights.
  • Ignoring By Singing: While he usually doesn't intend to do this, there have been times where he's forgotten to listen to an NPC because he was singing.
  • I Have Many Names: Introduces himself by a different username in every video
  • Intentional Engrish for Funny: When playing a particularly badly translated mod, Al is known to begin talking this way.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His player characters have a tendency to be abusive, bloodthirsty, impatient, short-tempered if not flat-out insane with a severe case of ADHD. Yet, he almost always chooses the most polite dialogue option in NPC conversations (even if there's another funnier but ruder response) and always prefers to do the right thing in quest choices. In one of his recent Fallout videos he laments that the Vault 22 plant research has to be burnt without a good alternative offered and the loss of an opportunity to make the Mojave "beautiful again".
    • And while it's not really a good plan, he aligns with the NCR (The Resident Good Faction) quite frequently, and he has often talked about how it would be "Wonderful" to bombard the Legion (The Resident Evil Faction of the game)
  • Killed Off for Real. Cass. Murdered by Al himself because she wouldn't shut up.
    • And more recently, Harold passed away not long before Bobby murdered Abraham in The Sims 3. Death had a busy week.
    • And now Death himself is dead.
    • Kimmy Duggart
    • Waffles died on Robbie's birthday.
    • Pudge
    • Steven
    • Zelda
    • Pudge
    • Bobby
    • Jimmy Cop
  • Kleptomaniac Hero. Al takes everything. Ever. He constantly gets over-encumbered because he compulsively steals things.
  • Laughing Mad: "Let me ask you a question: are you into gay men?"
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Al has many characters in nearly all of his sereis, but in his Sims series he has Bobby, Steven, Harold, Waffles, Mageru, Gumbo, Zelda, Pudge, Cashew, Dakota, Kimmy, Oscar, Robbie, Ghost Bobby, and Ghost Harold. Thats not even counting the many townsfolk and the Future Duggarts.
  • Man Child: Certainly comes close to it, at times, if he's not there all the time.
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: Especially evident in his montages, where he inevitably plays every single character. Yes, even the women.
  • Men Don't Cry: Inverted parody which is played for laughs related to the above Heroic BSOD.
  • Mid-Battle Tea Break: Perhaps as a result of the games he plays, but he'll often stop in the middle of a fight and consume large quantities of food and drink.
  • Moment of Silence: During his Let's Play of Kerbal Space Program, his haphazard flying of a jet causes him to crash when landing, killing Matemey Kerbal.
  • Motor Mouth
  • One-Liner: He loves these, but most of them make no sense. Al understands this, but doesn't really care.
  • Only Sane Horse: Ferris Bueller.
  • Off the Rails: Al's Sims 3 playthrough went from being a goofy but standard Let's Play and went completely batshit insane the second Harold Duggart died.
  • Overly-Long Gag: Any time he decides to follow an animal around in Sims 3.
  • Running Gag: "Groovatron, that's the mod." Said every single time he uses the mod due to the legions of commenters asking what the mod is.
  • Self-Deprecation: "Yeah, I was watching this AlChestBreach video and he (insert moronic/insane/boring action) for (insert considerable length of time). Worst video ever."
  • Self-Made Orphan: Robbie Duggart by accident.
  • Sanity Slippage: Bobby Duggart immediately after Harold's death.
  • Signature Laugh: Often breaks out into one some YouTube commentators have playfully described as a "monkey laugh", usually preceded by rag-doll glitches, personal stupidity and exaggerated violence or explosions.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Donny Cop grows into one of these.
  • Tempting Fate: Waffles dies literally the second Al comes to the conclusion that pets in the Sims 3 can't die.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Inverted. Often gasps with legitimate amazement at random things, like traffic cones, loose garbage, broken run-of-the-mill guns. Usually then lampeshaded by the line, "This is nothing."
    • Played Straight by the fact that NPC's never notice his companions, which include: a deathclaw named Mr. Cuddlesworth who wears a top hat, a giant roach named Steve, a reanimated corpse named Jerry McGhoulberry, a robot named Captain Ballarms, a girl named Janet in a cyborg's body, and many other random but unusual companions.
    • Averted in The Sims 3. Steven passed out upon seeing The Grim Reaper sitting on the couch and watching TV.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Annoying child is talking while Al is talking? His solution: Shoot the child dead. Then continue on as if nothing happened.
    • What the Hell, Hero?: The mod that allowed him to kill the child then yelled at him, calling him a "horrible, horrible, human being."
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: When talking to himself or his companions while also being generally silly, has the tendency to dip into one.
    • In his owns words, "I don't know why I always turn an Irish/Scottish/whatever that accent is that isn't an accent that people yell at me for being an accent."
    • Sometimes, he has trouble distinguishing between his Irish and his Pirate accents.
