MEMORY FRAGMENT UNLOCKED!
Recently we were contacted by an independent game developer from Adelaide, South Australia. Last year this dev was the target of an outrageous news report.
Outrageous for all the wrong reasons.
The Jimquisition applied more research, editing, production value, and talent to this story than Nine News Adelaide ever did.
Now a local TV news station gets to experience life on the other side of the camera.
There’s too much sex for us to do, and clopping’s just the start of it.
Elsewhere, Laura’s discovery of Battle Chef Brigade is energetic, Gav goes back to Nier, and Jim reminds us of the virtues of Rayman Legends.
Oh and we had no idea what that Switch Direct was about!
Also, check out Laura Kate at Kotaku UK!
I swear this is a real thing that is on the PlayStation Store. I promise you it has the nerve to charge $19.99.
Maybe I’m paranoid, but I’m starting to think this is an elaborate, industry-wide attempt to gaslight me.
That, and this might be a Spear of Destiny spiritual successor?
On this constructively critical Jimquisition, we explain how using pre-bought videogame assets isn’t inherently wrong, and how they’ve been put to good use.
We also have a CASH CONTEST going on to reward anybody who can prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that talent is an asset.
(That’s the name of an old Sparks song!)
1. Create an original character using the “Horrid Spider” Unity Store asset as the foundation.
2. Send it to jim at thejimquisition dot com with the subject line “Horrid Spider Contest” and IMPRESS ME!
3. Include the name you’d like to be credited by and permission to show IF you’d like it shown.
4. Include your Paypal in case you win.
Contest ends January 15th.
Winner will be announced January 22nd.
*CORRECTION: For some reason I said 2K Games instead of Warner Bros. at one point. I blame these companies being so interchangeable. And the drugs.*
2017 had some absolute gems, but they were more than outnumbered by this year’s horrors, stinkers, and utter flops.
From those games mutilated to earn their publishers cash unabound, to those that simply had no talent behind them, there was much to choose from.
The wine has been drunk, the thinking’s been thought, and now we bring you 2017’s absolute worst games…
We’ve given our awards for this year’s best games, and tomorrow we shall trawl through the trenches to find 2017’s shittiest offerings, but what of the limbo between? The games that neither amuse or disgust? The milky, lukewarm games that one struggles to even remember?
Here at The Jimquisition, we celebrate ALL games, and that includes the unforgivably pedestrian!
It’s time for our third annual MEDIOCRE Awards. Which games failed to make us care? Which ones struggled to elicit a single emotional response? Let’s find out, and hand out some pococurantism trophies!
A “classic” Korean survival horror game about running away from a very old man who you could realistically take down with ease.
