Is Far Cry 5 good? I think so. The problem with Ubisoft games is you can’t tell anymore, they’re all the same.

It’s understandable when a sequel iterates on its predecessor, but Ubisoft is one publisher with MANY franchises all building off each other.

It’s making it hard to care, or at the very least view these games as anything other than fluff.

Violence In Videogames, Wankers In The White House (The Jimquisition)

Violence in videogames, a classic political scapegoat of the 1990s and early 2000s, is back in the spotlight as Trump’s bewildered administration resurrects an old blame game.
And a game is what it is. A rigged circus game designed only to entertain and placate the masses. The “violence in videogames” debate is a vapid waste of time, and the time wasters know it.

The Dismal Degradation Of Dynasty Warriors (The Jimquisition)

Dynasty Warriors may be my favorite series – or at least it was – but Tecmo Koei has been taking the piss with it for years.

Much of what’s said here could have been said a long time ago, but Dynasty Warriors 9 was its last chance… and we all know how that went.

Oh, and this isn’t just about what they DID to Zhang He!

There is a constant problem plaguing the game industry, if its spokespeople are to be believed. Games cost $60, and that price doesn’t work anymore!

Weirdly enough, The Jimquisition agrees with this assessment. “AAA” games should indeed not cost $60 anymore, and they most certainly have outgrown it.

The Cost Of Doing Business (The Jimquisition)

Games cost a lot of money to make. You need to pay developers, you need to license engines, you need do a lot.

Extra Credits pointed out all of these costs in a recent video, and I’m certainly not going the claim the expenses aren’t expensive.

But is it just me, or does the “AAA” videogame industry do a bit too much twisting and turning to make the cost of doing business out to be some unreasonable cross to bear?
