"I play games, I record them, then I break them"
AlChestBreach, YouTube channel description

AlChestBreach, also known as Brown Bear Breach after he decided that a camouflage suit made him look like a bear and as Bill Petersen in real life, is a Let's Player, mainly playing Bethesda games like Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Fallout 4. He has a tendency to be silly, claims to live 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 (alleged) moon-house, he mostly plays New Vegas and Skyrim mods, although there is always some other content dropping in.

AlChestBreach's channel as a whole provides examples of:

  • 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.
  • Age-Inappropriate Dress: He is extremely uncomfortable with the sexy French maid outfit that Sizzler begins wearing. Of course, he did buy it for her.
  • Advertisement:
  • An Ass-Kicking Christmas: The "Fallout New Vegas Mods: Christmas Special" has Al facing off against Neo-Nazis whilst simultaneously helping Santa set up a Christmas party in the wasteland.
  • 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.
  • Call-Back: Al makes many references to past videos and/or mods, but here are a few examples:
    • A reference to the weapon mod that accidentally renamed the Mojave Wasteland the 'Mojave Ödland' is made in the "Time Machine 2" mod review.
    • In one video, Al finds a chainsaw, and gives it to Jerry, saying that it would 'bring back the glory days.' This is a reference to Al's older videos, where Jerry had a chainsaw as his primary weapon instead of the blue glove he currently uses.
    • In the Tower of Raiders mod review, Al comes across a large room with 4 doors spread far apart. He then says, "Oh God, this reminds me of Alice in Wasteland."
  • Casual Danger Dialog: Inevitable, given his inability to ever stop talking.
  • Cats Are Mean:
    • Mr. Blisters who killed Jimmy Cop's wife and tried to burn his house down.
    • Even adorable little Gumbo used to attack Oscar on a regular basis.
  • Catchphrase: 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: 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.
  • Companion Cube: Chainz, the chainsaw introduced in episode 55 of Al's Dust playthrough.
  • 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.
  • Covert Pervert: Al seems to avoid all sexuality in mods, and is very quick to whip out the censor bars, but he's more than happy to indulge in the more subtle perversities that the mods allow. Like stealing Janet's underwear when she is killed by deathclaws.
  • Crapsack World: By having Mageru-5000 100 kill The Grim Reaper, Al has pretty much turned the world of The Sims into this.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: Al absolutely refuses to ever acknowledge it when a mod sucks, preferring instead to point out incredibly bland things it does right. Or just if it makes him laugh.
  • Departmentof Redundancy Department: Super Deathclaw Cave to Super Deathclaw cave.
  • Driven to Suicide: When Al ordered Oscar the robot to kill himself.
  • 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.
    • In his first video, he even says "Hey everyone, AlChestBreach here." He would never say his channel name in the introduction nowadays.
  • 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 is an unrepentant murderer. Who is fat.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: If you time a freeze frame right in Al's Area 51 Finished series, you find that he is hostile to himself (Video starts a few seconds before)
  • Gasp!: Whenever he stumbles across something utterly insignificant.
  • Gold Digger: The entire schtick of one of his Sims 3 families, the Reddings. Hilariously, Abigail Redding ends up marrying one herself, much to Al's consternation.
  • Gonk: Jimmy Whistles, Cindy Ribbits, and The Elephant Man all have ridiculously broken models.
  • Hand Cannon: He loves giant pistols, and will say so often in any video where he has one. "I love this gun." Indeed.
  • 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.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Axe Man lives and breathes off of axe related puns.
  • 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?"
  • The Load: Gully, an epileptic ghoul companion with the amazing ability to lose ever single fight he starts.
  • 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.
  • Manchild: 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:
  • 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. Beat "I'll inform the Family..."
  • Motor Mouth: He is constantly talking at a frequent rate.
  • Nice Guy: He's extremely fond of his fans and frequently lets them know how much he appreciates them, and he refuses to say anything negative about any mods no matter how bad they are because he feels that they all have effort put into them.
  • Non-Indicative Name: The channel name was derived from a sketch/trailer for a fictional movie on his older channel, Billtcm. Curiously, Bill himself didn't portray the titular character.
  • One-Liner: He loves these, but most of them make no sense. Al understands this, but doesn't really care.
  • Only Sane Man: Ferris Bueller, who is a horse.
  • 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.
  • Precision F-Strike: Al tends to prefer sticking to his mix of baby talk and made-up gibberish, so it tends to have a bit more impact on the occasions when he does actually start swearing.
  • Raised by Wolves: In his Draw My Life video: "I was born to a family of wild raccoons in the lower District of Columbia."
  • 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.
    • People dying during Dauggart-thrown parties.
  • 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.
  • Shotguns Are Just Better: Al has reviewed just about every kind of weapon mod there is, but he takes a certain delight with shotguns in particular.
  • Riding into the Sunset: The end of the Sims 3 was after Al decided that the Duggarts can't be killed and send demon Bobby riding on Dancer to the sunset.
  • 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.
  • Talkative Loon: He never stops talking, and it's usually utter nonsense.
  • Tempting Fate: Waffles dies literally the second Al comes to the conclusion that pets in the Sims 3 can't die.
  • Undignified Death: Jimmy Cop dies alone in his bathroom after taking a shit.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
