Podquisition Episode 8: The Numbers

This week, the gang talks about review scores and why they’re okay sometimes. Maybe. A bit. Most people hate The Numbers, and they hate Metacritic too, but The Jimquisition uses them because of Some Reasons.

There’s also some videogame talk, including discussion of a game that has zombies and big breasts in it. So… that’s good.

The Jimquisition: Amiibo – Glorified DLC, Or The New Mini Boglins?

It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for another Jimquisition!

The industry is still pretty quiet in terms of content, so reviews and stuff are still pretty thin on the ground. Hopefully we can get the frontpage here hopping again soon. Later this month we’ll at least have the re-remake of Resident Evil to talk about, and hopefully I’ll be able to provide a review of Citizens of Earth. I’ve got my eye open for anything interesting and review-worthy that hits Steam, too. Most of the gibberish that comes out is only suitable for a Squirty Play on my YouTube channel, but you never know!

At any rate, I’d like to thank everyone for continuing to read and watch and listen to my stuff. I am in the midst of what I’d call unprecedented success at the moment – Podquisition is possibly the most popular podcast I’ve ever hosted, the YouTube channel subscription rate is not slowing down, and everything else in between is just fantastic fun and seems to be going over great. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed by how well it’s all going lately, and I can only keep thanking y’all for making it happen.

Anyway, back to Jimquisition. It’s about amiibo!

Podquisition Episode 7: It’s Not Semen

This week, your ol’ pal Jim manages to get superglue (and it IS glue) all over his hands. It’s very distressing and frightening for him.

Elsewhere, we talk about weird games that involve fighting terrorists as teenage girls, beating horses to death, and fapping in thirty seconds. Also, Ubisoft did something stupid again. Because Ubisoft.

Jimquisition Livestream: One Day For Ched

This game didn’t quite make it onto my Shittiest of 2014 list, but it was definitely one of the front-running contenders. It’s a hodgepodge mess that tries to be an old school shooter, but doesn’t understand what made those old games work so well. The result is something almost unplayable.

I had an impulsive desire to try and get through it on a live show. I failed. The stream didn’t even last all that long before the whole thing crashed, but the results did turn out pretty damn funny!

I’m hoping to do a lot more live stuff in 2015, alongside other content. Be sure to follow Jimquisition on Twitch for more in future!

The Jimquisition: Games To GET HYPE For In 2015

Let’s kick off the new year with a look forward to the upcoming games that most jump out at me. I got five games to talk about across a range of genres, and I think most would agree they’re looking pretty hopeful… unlike that year when I said I was looking forward to Colonial Marines.

Now that we’re out of the holidays, more content should be coming to these here pages. One good thing about a site without ad money to worry about is that it can have a more narrowly defined focus and doesn’t need to churn out guff. The drawback to that focus is that, when the game industry has nothing for me to review, this site goes pretty quiet. That’s fine and everything, but it’d be nice to get the writing going again, so here’s to more reviews and editorials and fun times on the way!

Hope y’all had a good holiday, and may I wish you all a very erotic 2015!

Podquisition Episode 6: Fish Sex

We ring in the new year by talking about banging a goldfish, filling Mega Man’s enemies with bodily fluids, and Play-Doh’s veiny mistake. So, traditional New Year topics!

We also chat a lot about the games we’re looking forward to in 2015. Because really, who needs to stop hearing about Bloodborne?

The Top Ten Shittiest Games of 2014!

It’s time for the fifth annual Top Ten Shittiest Games of 2014. This year had an almost unprecedented level of awful releases, and picking those games representative of such a dire twelve months was a daunting task. Overall, however, I feel I selected the ten games that most perfectly captured The Year in Shit.

Most importantly, I kept it perfectly impersonal. More or less.

Kinda.
