The Jimquisition Store Is Here! Thank God For Merch

(Update: The Jimquisition Emblem shirt is now a thing!)

By popular demand, you can now wear words from my brain directly across your lithe, supple body. In league with the lovely folks at Shark Robot, you may now swarm like starving dogs over the tender meat that is The Jimquisition Store!

Featuring ideas from my own head and granted colorful life by the talented artists David North and Crystal White, these shirt designs will delight your friends and tantalize your sexual partners. If you’re into sexual partners. If not, that’s cool too! These shirts can be worn by literally anybody. If they’re a human. Or at least vaguely humanoid.

Anyway, these are great. Our launch lineup includes some classic expected phrases – you can declare that you’re “Jim Fucking Sterling Son” or proclaim “Thank God for me.” In addition, we have some great designs based on some of my oft-mentioned interests – AliensSplatoon and Mysterio from Spider-Man all have affectionate, copyright-abiding, parodying images.

This is just the launch. We’ll be adding new designs over time, and you are free to make requests. Please enjoy, and if you’re picking anything up, let me know. I’d love to see what shirts have you the most excited.

The Jimquisition: Red Ashes

http://www.patreon.com/jimquisition

Red Ash wraps up its final hours on Kickstarter, with failure looking to be a dead cert. However, thanks to a “last minute” save by Fuze, the game’s getting made anyway… and people aren’t happy.

An exercise in terrible management and shoddy communication, the hot mess that is Red Ash and Comcept’s marketing strategy stands as an example of exactly how big names need to NOT approach the crowdfunding world.

At least the cartoon got funded, I guess.

Greenlight Won’t Get Better When Steam Won’t Enforce Its Own Rules

Pictured above is a quick snapshot of Island Light 2‘s Steam Greenlight page. As you’ll note from the placement of the media scroller, there is no introductory video, no trailer, no gameplay footage of any kind. Those malingering malcontents at Kobra Studio – or Kobra Team, when a name change takes their fancy – simply did not feel like adding a video when publishing this page.

Brian Altano from The Comedy Button and IGN joins your regular crew for a fun-stuffed episode of larks and barks. We chat about Onechanbara, platform exclusivity, and all the biting topics of the week.

Once that’s out the way, the show devolves into talking about pooping our pants, masturbating in parking lots, and having sex on tree stumps. Because welcome to Podquisition!

The Jimquisition: JIMQUISITION LIVE 2015

Filmed at SGC 2015 in Frisco Texas on July 17, this all-live show features the sensual Jim Sterling in an evening of fun, frolics, and fabbo prizes.

The first of hopefully many live shows discusses the changing role of critics and how developers have struggled to accept that change. We also make fun of Aliens: Colonial Marines and Digital Homicide for a bit, because it’s a live show and people want what they love!

Please excuse the minor audiovisual errors in the recording. Sadly that’s how the video came to me. It’s still pretty damn good quality overall though. Can’t wait to do another of these!

The Jimquisition: The Great Atari Ransack

Atari isn’t exactly the most respected name in the industry these days, but apparently it needs to infect everything it touches with its sour reputation.

The Great Atari Ransack is underway, as the hollow shell of a publisher goes through its back catalog and ruins everything. Desperate, undignified, and thoroughly damaging, Atari’s recent release trend deserves to be torn asunder.
