Bad Rats Review – A Retrospective


Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of our last review, since then I have tried to remain calm when people mention Bad Rats, but it’s so difficult. I just wish I could constantly shout from the rooftops “I LOVE BAD RATS SO MUCH!!!!” But alas, real life awaits.


It’s strange to me how people have passions and dreams like being an astronaut, musician, or any other form of art. I mean I know these things have their place, but why do I get so many dirty looks when I tell people I’m a Bad Rats enthusiast? We live in a world where people constantly tell their children “You can grow up to be whatever you want to be.” But I can’t define myself based on the profound love I have for this game? Why not? All different kinds of people have different kinds of passions, and videos games, and more specifically Bad Rats, is my passion.


The reason BootWack has been so inactive is because I can’t find anything I particularly feel can make the same societal impression as sharing my thoughts on the most incredible game ever. That being said, me and Koveryl have heard the thousands of complaints and will soon be moving back to regular content.

maxresdefault (1).jpgI suppose my point in all this is to keep trying to spread the good word of my ultimate passion, Bad Rats. I’m incredibly proud of my review and my philanthropic effort to get Bad Rats in the public eye, and I hope one day my offspring will do the same. People will shake their heads and people will laugh, but they know that deep down nothing will ever affect them the way that Bad Rats has affected me.


Bad Rats is the most undeniably, indisputably, amazing experience of my or any generation. Nothing will ever come close. No political or religious affiliation, no charity, no movie, no book, no other form or art or media will EVER make me feel the way that this game makes me feel.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again


Thank you for reading, stay tuned for more content.

Bad Rats Review – Classic Reviews



You’ll have to forgive Bootwack’s long absence. I’ve been constantly writing this review for the last 2 months without breaks, so it’s not that we haven’t been hard at work, it’s just that these things take time. Now sit back, relax and read this review of the most incredible game I’ve ever played. I’m serious.

Well, It’s kind of hard to say anything about this game that hasn’t already been said. This game is a classic in every single way. In fact, I’d go as far to say that this game is the only game to perfectly fit the definition of the word classic. I have no clue where to begin, this game has so much content it makes my head spin. We’ll start with the story.


The game begins with a cut scene that sets things up absolutely perfectly. You see some very beautiful rats. Truly gods creation, from suicide bomber rat, to batter rat, but we’ll get more into characters later. And these rats have a beef with the mean old cat. You don’t necessarily learn what happens that makes the cat the Rat’s target. But the cat is no victim. A quick look into the cats eyes will show fear. Fear of being caught and killed, but fear stems from guilt. The cat must be guilty, which makes me think that the rats are more than justified. The rats have to go through hell and back but they finally kill the cat once and for all.


Though the game does not end on a cliffhanger, you must still ask some unanswered questions. For example, we never did find out the backstory of the cat. I believe the developers did this on purpose. They would not have not included it if it didn’t mean something. Something’s fishy about that cat. I just know it.

Story: 10/10


This game looks absolutely incredible. It’s so so hard to believe it came out in 2007 when it is still probably the best looking game ever made. Even my custom graphics cards in 4 way SLI have trouble sometimes running the game at a constant 60 fps. This is not the games fault however. It’s just simply too beautiful to run without a serious rig. There isn’t too much to say, I’m not doing it any Justice.


Graphics: 10/10


The game boasts a completely amazing physics engine. It is by far the most realistic physics engine I’ve ever encountered. There are no random instances of unrealistic occurrences. Everything is exactly how it would be in real life. Could you imagine a real life Bad Rats? I’m eternally depressed it will never happen. I’d really be living the High Life.

Physics: 10/10


The game has a wide variety of rat characters. From Suicide Bomber rat, to Batter Rat, to Forklift Rat, to Stunt rat, To Fat rat, to Balloon Rat. The list goes on and on. The characters department is by far the best of any game I’ve ever played.


Characters: 10/10


By far the most incredible game of all time, I can’t believe I was lucky enough to be graced with the gift of experiencing this masterpiece. It’s the only game I care about, truly. It’s why me and Koveryl started Bootwack. To bring attention to the industry that gave us this Magnum Opus. If I had to trade my or anyone else’s existence for this game, I would gladly do so. This game is more incredible than anyone in the human race combined, except for the development team of this game. Words can simply not describe what I feel about this game. Considering it’s $1 on Steam and has the best gameplay, story, graphics, and characters of any game I’ve ever played, I don’t know why you wouldn’t give it a chance. In fact, let me get something straight…


I’m sorry. But it’s true. As far as games go, Bad Rats takes the cake.

Overall: 10/10

Fnatic’s Flusha comes up with the perfect Cheese Biscuit recipe

The competitive gaming scene just keeps getting bigger and bigger every day. It seems with each new item and skin in whatever game you prefer, the scene gets a little bit bigger. With this being said, is it possible that the competitive gaming scene could cross into the mainstream and combine with things like music, movies, and even food?

Professional competitive Counter Strike: Global Offensive player Flusha, who is on the team “Fnatic” thinks that the future of competitive gaming lies in good, wholesome food. That’s why in 2010, he dedicated himself to making the perfect cheese biscuit recipe.

This work more than paid off, in an interview with him he told us

I’ve never been more proud of anything in my life. Seriously! Just try it! It’s the best ever!

After trying it, Koveryl spit it out and said he didn’t want to disservice his taste buds by eating the worst food of all time. I however loved each bite.


Nintendo requesting consumers to send in Pokemon Yellow copies so they can destroy them

Nintendo is visibly upset about the release of Pokemon: Special Pikachu Edition, or PokemonPokemon Yellow Yellow, and they’re not trying to hide it.

Nintendo has unleashed a message across all possible platforms for all consumers to send in their copies of Pokemon Yellow that they may or may not own. This includes a message shown when starting up a Nintendo console, tweets, blogs, and even posts made personally by Pokemon Yellow developer Thom Yorke on 4chan. Nobody over at Nintendo is happy about this Pokemon game.

Thom Yorke says “We’ve been trying to hide the fact that Pokemon Yellow ever existed ever since it’s release in 98, and we’re pretty disappointed with our results thus far.” Thom also reports multiple periods of depression in the the past one and a half decades trying to cover up Pokemon Yellow. “Every night, I get a copy of Pokemon Yellow and crush it with my forehead. Feels good.” He gave us a tour in his house and we saw crushed Pokemon Yellow cartridges everywhere. Me and Stiiinkyshoes had a hard time not stepping on shards from the shattered cartridges.

Nintendo CEO Giorgo Moroder states that he never knew about Pokemon Yellow until it’s release, and it was too late to stop it by the time it was out. Moroder says

We’re all just trying to forget about Pokemon Yellow ever even happened. It was a monstrosity and I think that everybody should just move on from it.

Giorgo was disappointed by the small amount of people sending in copies of Pokemon Yellow yet, but those who have had have been awarded with a personal thank you video from Reggie. Those who haven’t… well, let’s just say that they’re not here for an interview.

After the interview, Giorgo, in an attempt to gather his thoughts, broke down crying. Even long after we had left the building, we can still hear his wails and screams. “POKEMON YELLOW?! MORE LIKE POKEMON SMELLOW” we would hear him shout. We were worried for him. We cared. We knew what he was going through. But there was nothing that could be done.

See you guys next time!

“more like biscuits amirite” – Half-Life 2 Writer Ben Gibbard

One of the main writers of the legendary video game, Half-Life 2 has recently opened a Twitter account. The account has remained mostly inactive until recently. Ben has simply stated “more like biscuits amirite.”

Fans of the game series have already made predictions of what this could mean for the company and for the game franchise. There is nothing confirmed, however people have put the first letters together to make MLBA. This matches the baseball logo. Maybe Valve has an upcoming sports game planned? Maybe a Half Life Baseball spinoff. Either way, fans are predicting an ARG and things are happening quick.


Though Ben Gibbard made the tweet several days ago, no one at Valve has mentioned it or acknowledged it except for Valve Programmer Brian Wilson, who just states “Gibbard was drunk and did not know what he was saying.”

Still, fans will always speculate about a new Half Life game, and maybe Wilson was just saving Gibbard from trouble with Valve for releasing info. Whatever the case is, we at BootWack look forward to what Valve has in store. Whether that’s a MLBA game or a new canon title. Or maybe a canon MLBA game, we’ll never know.

Gabe Newell refuses to comment on the situation.
