So indie developers make Switch exclusives, because the don’t like Steam.

But what’s wrong with GOG ?

Just because Steam is shit, that’s not a good enough reason to not have indies on PC anymore.

Pro Wrestling Ego has responded to Jim’s video. There is a link to it on his twitter.

I love my Switch. It’s so bad.

I was also one of those criticizing the lack of launch titles. Having seen what Nintendo planned, the steady release of quality games interspersed with ports of other games, I have to admit I was wrong. I much prefer this steady drip of good games over a blitz of multiple titles all at once. This way, I can finish one game and only have relatively short period before another game is released. Meaning I can participate in the forming communities around those games, rather than coming in months later.

Fun (CRINGE WORTHY) Fact – The author of the CNBC Article, Even Wingren, who spoke about how gamers are “Overeacting” is also on EA and COMCAST’S Payroll. He’s listed as the Keybanc Capital Markets Analyst under EA’s employee directory.
(Had to say this here and on Jim’s newest Youtube video about NFS:Payback. It needs to be known how many corporate shills we’re dealing with)

So apparently (according to IGN) the creator of Plants vs Zombies was fired from PopCap by EA because he refused to include Microtransactions/Pay-To-Win mechanics in his games.
If this is true, good on him for sticking to his integrity.

It will be interesting if Nintendo would take a stance against the Fee2Pay games – Sure nintendos “Free to try” titles are shitty as other big publishers (Animal Crossing: Pocket Pincher out this week.) stuff but as far there is nothing on the Switch which has microtransactions or loot boxes in there and if Nintendo keeps it that way it will be great.

I know this has nothing to do with this Jimquisition, but I did want to hear your opinion on the way Ubisoft implemented loot “packs” into Rainbow Six: Siege. They’re currently designed to rewards those who play over those who pay, as there is no way to pay for it with any real money equivalent; in other words you can only get it with currency earned while playing. P.S. I couldn’t find your email, so I wrote it here, sorry.

I’m kinda surprised, given the shit show Steam’s become, that it’s the Switch that seems to be becoming the go to platform for indies. Not because I think there’s anything wrong with it but because you’d think either Sony or MS would have leaped at the chance to be the first port of call for all of the indie darlings.

Me and my wife have been thinking of picking up a Switch this Solsticemas, and this as someone who’d stepped away from consoles many years ago and figured I wouldn’t need anything other than my PC every again. I think the Switch will draw many people who had previously given up on consoles. I might even pick up a duplicate copy of Stardew Valley… it’s one of the best games I’ve ever played, and I don’t say that lightly. I had a peeksy at the box for Odyssey, and it claims you can play co-op, with one player as mario… Read more »

What the hell Jim, why are you so biased towards Nintendo!

I said on last week’s video and to friends for awhile that I was considering picking up a Switch because they aren’t pushing microtransactions. Dabbling in Season Passes, sure, but embracing most of what I despise about the industry is something they genuinely seem to not have an interest in. Their practices on YouTube are still shit, their deliberate scarcity of products is still shit, but the fact that Nintendo is still committed to making fun, complete games is deserving of recognition. It’s absolutely fucked that it deserves recognition, but that they seem to want to be above it has… Read more »

Personally, while I am loving my Switch I’m not a big fan of it as a handheld, I find it too cumbersome with the Joycons docked and I’m not entirely keen on playing it undocked with the kickstand.

Two questions regarding games featured in this video.
1) What was the game with the male lead in the boat?
2) What was the game shown between 09:50 -10:00?

I was recently in a conversation with someone who said that gaming is too expensive to produce now a days, that the $60 isn’t cutting it and they need to make profit some how. I immediately pointed out a multitude of games, Nier Automata, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, etc etc, all games at a $60 with little to no DLC and NO Microtransactions. Their reply, is and I quote “You can’t compare other companies to Nintendo, they have so many other ways to make money outside games.” I just looked at them both unimpressed and astounded how… Read more »

And of course because I just love provoking those who have devastating fever dreams of the Dystopian future “SJW” games will leave us in it’s also fun to point out how many of those indies have you playing as girls. Like Stardew Valley, Steamworld Dig, and Blossom Tales; which looks like Legend of Zelda if you played as Zelda. Overall this has been a pretty good year for female representation in…any medium actually. Such as having TWO female leads in the new Star Wars movies (which, contrary to what some believe are NOT turning into chick flicks I mean for… Read more »
