How To Survive AMIIBOGEDDON

You may have heard disturbing reports and written them off as hysteria and scaremongering. In fact, your concerns may have been alleviated by the so-called “officials” telling us to keep calm and carry on. Make no mistake, however – AMIIBOGEDDON is here, and we’re all going to suffer.

According to reports, Nintendo’s amiibo figures are growing scarce to the point of near-extinction. It’s already becoming next to impossible to secure the Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, or Marth figures, and the latest stories suggest no more are being made. These amiibo shortages are quite possibly going to lead us into another Great Depression, and neither Nintendo nor the government are doing anything to help. We’re on our own, people! We’ve been abandoned by our overseers, and ignored by our false gods. We’re in the middle of an apocaliipse, and all we can do now is try to survive. We really are The Last of Us.

Now is not the time to panic, however. Grab the amiibo you have, secure yourself, and prepare for the coldest winter of your God damn lives. Follow my tips for surviving AMIIBOGEDDON, and please… for the very sake of humanity… keep yourself alive.

The Jimquisition: GRAND THEFT AUSTRALIA

Today’s video was a calm, rational analysis of Target Australia’s decision to no longer stock Grand Theft Auto VNaturally, this prompted raging responses from people who quite blatantly watched less than half of the episode before marching to the comment sections, pitchforks in hand. My favorite comment was from a guy who told everyone to withdraw support of my Patreon until I was forced to agree with him more. That would certainly promote integrity!

As I explain in the video if you watch all of it, I do not agree with Target Australia’s decision. I see why the decision was made, and I do not think this is the worst thing to happen to videogames, however. This sucks, but given Australia’s history with censorship, it’s a bump in the road toward progress.

Enjoy the video, but I’d probably not wade too deep into the comments. My not being as mad as some people who are mad have only made the mad people madder!

100,000 YouTube Subscribers, Hooray!

In a little over a year of dedicated videogame coverage, the Jim Sterling YouTube channel surpassed 100,000 subscribers! Though the numbers were on track to hit that figure over the next few days, I wasn’t expecting to wake up this morning and see us already over the golden number. The increasing popularity of the Squirty Play and Early Access Squirt videos got us most of the way there, and the recent inclusion of The Jimquisition brought with it an influx of fresh lovelies to push us over the top. With all my video content now under one roof, the channel is looking set to be a strong little venue of entertainment in 2015.

Things are going… well. Really flippin’ well.

Podquisition Episode 2: Drink Call of Duty Responsibly

On this week’s episode, there’s corruption on the high seas as soft drinks and snack products worm their way into our filthy, clogged hearts. We have a go at Ubisoft some more, make fun of Haunted House, and there’s yet more Dragon Age love sneaking in.

We also have a right ol’ moan about microtransactions and branded pizzas. And pisspots.

Jimquisition Livestream: Dead Island

I had to stay up Monday night to manually post the review for Game of Thrones because apparently I can’t make scheduled posts work yet. At any rate, it gave me an excuse to livestream in the graveyard hours.

Livestream I did, and we all had so much fun playing Dead Island, didn’t we? Certainly more fun than we had with the more recent release in that particular franchise. Anyway, the video is available to view at your leisure – just click it and be transported to the magical world of Zombie Island Place!

Be sure to check out the Jimquisition Twitch channel for future live shows!
