I refuse to accept this new series until you get yourself a proper ruffle shirt, Jim.

Thanks for making this show! The most minor of minor quibbles about the music. The video cut off one note before the last tonic chord resolved, leaving me feeling twitchy. It would have been nice if the video could have lasted about a second longer to hit that chord and let it finish.

I feel like it is a lot easier to make games harder than to make them easier (in the context of being someone who playing the game.) Not using the most optimal items or moves is an easy way to make your game harder. Pokemon is a super easy game, small children beat it, it also has a crap ton of challenges that can make it a very hard game (nuzlock being the tip of the iceberg.) There are runs that people do of dark souls that make my playthough look like child’s play. I feel like a lot of… Read more »

I don’t get the complaints about “participation awards”.

I ran the London Marathon earlier this year in under 4 hours and was really happy with my participation medal… even though people who took nearly twice as long got the same thing.

I’m pretty confident that people who finished in 2:30 also didn’t begrudge me getting a medal for being nearly an hour an a half slower than them either.

“Plebs”? hahaaha could this have been more perfect? I hope you don’t have to tweak the comments, Jim.. =)

Hi Jim. Really like your parody on gamers who like the smell of their own farts. Even my user name is a sort of a homage. Regarding some creative feedback to your show. Could you consider adding some more encentricities to your character. I liked it in a previous ep where you ran of stage with a giggling shriek. Also emperors apparently wrap part of their cape in a swooping action to cover face (below eyeline) in digust. And i dont know how, but perhaps a cheeky bottom shot as you walk away from camera (not every ep). Lastly, Tarquin… Read more »

The thing is, as bad as this comment was, just try to imagine what an unbearable douche someone like this must be in real life. There’s no way they only act like this about videogames.

He is making a point, somewhere in his rant – but he does rather spoil it with his tone – his point seems to be that putting work into something can be very rewarding, we all recognise this, I’m sure – the chinese term “Kung Fu” actually doesn’t mean much about fighting, it translated to this idea that working hard at soemthing is fulfilling. And he’s right, to a point – but the converse point is obviously that he has narrowed the concept of video games to only what he finds fun. He enjoys “kung fu” – or working hard… Read more »

“Not everything is for you” Uh…yeah. No shit. Your rant should have ended right there. Not everybody wants to invest in the electronic equivalent of a second job. They already have one job. And then he proceeds to gloat about how he plays miniature gaming. Something that DEFINITELY isn’t for everyone. Ultimately this one just left me staring blankly at the screen because it was five minutes of him saying basically nothing. I didn’t understand a goddamn word. But then again that may just be that I’m a console peasant. Anything’s possible! =D

Wait does magnetizing have to do with Table Top Gaming? I’ve played some Warhammer 40k (Tau Empire), LOTR and Warhammer Historical as a kid and I can’t recall magnets being a thing.

Jim, it might be a good idea for you to go back and watch your perfect pasta sauce episode. This whole bit is based on the idea that it’s somehow wrong to value difficulty in games, and that games should all be made “more accessable” by including variable difficulties for different people. That’s exactly the thing as you argue so vehemently against when it means changing games in order to chase the widest available market. And yes, adding difficulty settings does mean changing the game, some games do actually rely on difficulty and not just difficulty that can be reasonably… Read more »

I can see a good point somewhere, deep in there, but it’s surrounded on all sides by a sea of bullshit and smelling his own farts. Also, “drooling halfwit”. Fucking classy.

I think that that commenter lost the understanding of what a game is all about. The whole point is to have fun. They’re one of the few things in life where no one else’s lives or physical welfare is on the line, so why put so much effort and dedication to be H’ardcore? No human being is going to die or be harmed if you’re crap at Dark souls…

A quote that should always be remembered because it applies to all hobbies as well…
