Jimquisition Livestream: Dying Light

If you like Far Cry but wish it had more zombies, then you’ll enjoy Dying Light, because it’s Far Cry with zombies. There are so many ZAMBIES, in fact, that you’ll think you died and went to ZAMBIE HEBBEN!

So yeah, this is that game nobody got review copies of until a day before launch. Ironically, the game reportedly worked well before release, then some genius released a patch for the PC version that broke everything. I’m doing the main review off the PS4 version, but here’s my attempted stream of the PC one. It doesn’t go fabulously.

As for the game? Eh, it’s okay. It’s pretty okay.

The Jimquisition: We Need More Spencer Mansions

This week’s show continues some things I said in my review of the Resident Evil HD Remake Remaster Remake Remake, specifically the stuff about environmental design, and why Resident Evil‘s was so effective. We need games that aren’t afraid to employ some well-structured backtracking, games that can be small in scale but big in scope. A game world we can become familiar with, and that feels like home even if it’s trying to kill you.

We need more Spencer Mansions, basically, and a lot less of Generic Sandbox City Place.

Podquisition Episode 9: Laura Drinks Bob Marley’s USB Cable

Soundcloud is being absolutely ridiculous today, so grab this while it’s actually up… IF it’s up. At some point I may be able to add the show’s thumbnail without Soundcloud scrubbing the entire audio file. That would be nice. I hate doing anything related to audio. All the time. Urrrrgh.

Anyway, it’s a good show this week!

On this week’s splendid episode, we chat about Resident Evil: The Official Remaster Of The Official Remake, and Saints Row: Gat Out Of Jail Free Card. We also discuss Hotline Miami 2 and Hatred a little bit… again. And Laura drinks Bob Marley’s USB Cords.

Jimquisition Livestream: Citizens of Earth

Citizens of Earth is a pretty solid little RPG so far, mimicking Earthbound and not doing too terrible a job of it. The writing and voice acting is a little… uh… well. Why not watch and find out?

Hoping to have a review of this one up. Got waylaid by other tasks, and there may be yet more tasks coming in to waylay me further, but if I can get it done, I’ll get it done. That’s the Jim Sterling not-quite-guarantee!

Podquisition Episode 8: The Numbers

This week, the gang talks about review scores and why they’re okay sometimes. Maybe. A bit. Most people hate The Numbers, and they hate Metacritic too, but The Jimquisition uses them because of Some Reasons.

There’s also some videogame talk, including discussion of a game that has zombies and big breasts in it. So… that’s good.

The Jimquisition: Amiibo – Glorified DLC, Or The New Mini Boglins?

It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for another Jimquisition!

The industry is still pretty quiet in terms of content, so reviews and stuff are still pretty thin on the ground. Hopefully we can get the frontpage here hopping again soon. Later this month we’ll at least have the re-remake of Resident Evil to talk about, and hopefully I’ll be able to provide a review of Citizens of Earth. I’ve got my eye open for anything interesting and review-worthy that hits Steam, too. Most of the gibberish that comes out is only suitable for a Squirty Play on my YouTube channel, but you never know!

At any rate, I’d like to thank everyone for continuing to read and watch and listen to my stuff. I am in the midst of what I’d call unprecedented success at the moment – Podquisition is possibly the most popular podcast I’ve ever hosted, the YouTube channel subscription rate is not slowing down, and everything else in between is just fantastic fun and seems to be going over great. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed by how well it’s all going lately, and I can only keep thanking y’all for making it happen.

Anyway, back to Jimquisition. It’s about amiibo!
