Trivia / Chip Cheezum

  • Colbert Bump:
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer:
    • Chip expresses his opinion in the Watch_Dogs LP that none of the Privacy Invasions are actually about good people - they're all either horrible people or are good people suffering. While he admitted that he'd never finished them all, there are in fact several Privacy Invasions that aren't completely depressing, such as a father letting his daughter dress him up and a mother defending her daughter from a homophobic radio host.

    • Later on, in episode 17, Chip misidentifies a licensed song that plays as an N.W.A. song - it's actually Wu-Tang Clan's "Cream."
  • Doing It for the Art: It's standard operating procedure for all his playthroughs.
  • I Knew It!: Ironicus has a knack for predicting certain plot twists, like Luka's betrayal in The Wonderful 101. Several of his predictions are incorrect, but still end up getting echoed by the characters in-game, such as both him and Sam speculating that Avery's crew wasted all their treasure money on elaborate death traps in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
  • Old Shame:
    • Mainly towards their Retsupuraes, since they feel they mostly consisted of making fun of kids who didn't know better. Notably, they haven't uploaded a video in that style to the ChipCheezumSA channel since the end of 2014, and by the end they were all about weird gaming-related videos and the like rather than bad LPs.
    • At the end of the Metal Gear Solid V Let's Play, both make it clear that they regret their casual ableism in their earlier Let's Plays, with Chip wishing that he could go back and edit those parts out.
  • Unintentional Period Piece:
    • A lot of the duo's commentary and side-videos regarding Uncharted 2, recorded in 2011/2012, was dedicated to mocking, which at the time of that LP was the Let's Play subforum's preferred video host. They noted that none of that has particularly aged well by the time they got around to Uncharted 3 in 2014, some time after Blip had purged itself of all video game-related content before shutting down entirely in 2015.

    • A more minor example they haven't commented on is in regards to the Metal Gear Solid 3 LP, at one point in which Chip reads a comment making fun of the duo the LP had received on Viddler - another video-hosting site that was preferred on the subforum because it wasn't YouTube and is at least still around another decade on, but which entirely shifted focus to business-related videos just a year or two after that LP.
    • Due to recording much of the Metal Gear Solid V commentary months in advance, many of Chip and Ironicus' jokes have this effect. For example, in the second episode they briefly talk about the then-recent announcement of Metal Gear Survive. Said episode was actually posted on May 22nd, three months after Survive was released.
  • What Could Have Been
    • Chip wanted Blood on the Sand to be a co-op playthrough with General Ironicus, but they were living in different states at the time and Ironicus didn't own a PlayStation 3.
    • One idea for the Grand Finale of the Metal Gear Solid V Let's Play involved Canon Welding every game Chip and Ironicus had ever LP'd into the Metal Gear universe, and secretly reuploading certain episodes from older playthroughs with an image of Vapor Snake hidden in the background. This was scrapped after being too difficult to implement.

How well does it match the trope?
