Jimquisition Livestream: The Slaughtering Grounds

Those who follow my work will know that I recently had the developer of The Slaughtering Grounds attempt to censor me on YouTube. Using a copyright takedown notice, my original video of this spectacularly awful game was removed, and my channel was thrown into bad standing with YouTube. Despite the studio’s boasts that it would see me in court, and despite claims that lawyers were backing their case, the video was returned to me last night, indicating that Imminent Uprising (the “publisher” of the game) had failed to pursue any further action. To celebrate, I hopped onto the Jimquisition Twitch channel and played some more of it. Way more of it. Too much of it.

Up there is part one of the video. Down there is part two. Enjoy, and keep an eye on the channel, as I’m looking to do a lot more impromptu livestreams in future!

Maybe Ubisoft is trying to get their own segment! “Who Ubisoft offended week,” It would never be short of material!

Legal notice:

After watching this I can NOT get that music loop out of my head and it is slowly driving me insane.

However, I am afraid that I am committing constant copyright infringement by having the tune in my head all of the time, and this is all YOUR fault for posting this Let’s Play video!

If ImminentUprising sends a DMCA and my mind gets taken down I am going to be VERY angry at you, mister Jimmotherfuckingsterlingson.

HEY JIM! I think I may have found the core library/tool used to make this Slaughtering House game: http://store.steampowered.com/app/270940/ – it’s called Axis Game Factory’s AGFPRO, and in particular, this is the Zombie FPS Player DLC for that tool. The assets seem awwwfully similar to the ones shown in the video. It’s an overlay/extension for the Unity game engine that does like 80% of the heavy lifting for you in terms of making a game, but it doesn’t let you do anything too nuanced. You actually have to learn Unity and possibly a programming language like C# to make this… Read more »

What is even more amazing is that the video used on the store page for showcasing that these assets can be used for an FPS game look more professional than The Slaughtering Grounds.

You should add links to both this site (www.thejimquisition.com) and your twitch channel to your youtube homepage, as well as adding a link to your twitch channel up top on this site. Just make sure we can access any of your places are just a click away, no matter which one we’re currently on. You feel me?

Jim,

Long time viewer and fan, first time commenter (commentator?)

Anyway, just wanted to say you’re my favourite games journalist.

You’ve inspired me to delve deeper into the inner workings of the industry,

gaining a broader understanding of how games are made, published, and the issues we are faced with due to those processes.

So, from one uber-picky gamer to another, thank god for you!

The people developing this game reminds me of those quite literally insane people showcased on tv shows like “Kitchen Nightmares”, just in a different business.

Since the new podcast is going to be about video games, do you think you would ever have Jonathan on as a guest?

Hey Jim,

On a totally unrelated note : Do you have any plans for the podcast ?
I was a big fan of Podtoid back in the old days (FishShark – not so much, unfortunately).
