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.


The Jimquisition Game of the Year Awards 2014

We have an award show for you to cram down your gullet! Five games, five Game of the Year awards, all cop. The Jimquisition Awards honor the best games in a year that, to be honest, had quite a few disappointments. Nonetheless, these are all worthy picks, with two honorable mentions, and if you haven’t played any of them, you ought to take some time this holiday season.

Also, yes, a new microphone is coming. Planning a couple tech upgrades that probably won’t make things perfect (I need better recording space, something I really can’t do right now) but will improve things. Trust me, I’m sicker of audio issues than anybody else could be.

In any case, enjoy the show, and happy holidays!

On Hatred, and Steam’s Sudden Interest in Quality Control

Hatred itself is so transparent in its intent that I’m barely interested in it as an actual videogame. That said, the response to it is fascinating for a number of reasons. At some point, I intend to examine the wacky events revolving around Hatred in a Jimquisition, but since my episodes are locked down with end-of-year content right now, I figured I’d toss something up in the meantime. This is a video discussing Valve’s recent decision to refuse Hatred a place on Steam Greenlight, something that has gaming’s loyalest champions up in arms. Personally, I find it interesting that this is the game Valve’s almost exclusively taking a stand on, when there are titles I find far more offensive – even if my offense is less conventional than the ol’ aversion to violent content.

Yes, Hatred is infantile in its attempts to be shocking, and I ultimately care little whether it sells or not. It’s not Air Control though, and that was on Steam for months.

The Jimquisition: Regarding My Inquisitor And Vaginas

This is the last “standard” Jimquisition of 2014, as we see out the rest of the year with our annual Jimquisition Awards and Top Ten Shittiest Games. How exciting!

Before we get to all the celebratory stuff, how about a bit of satire? This week, we send up the kind of people who are furious at the mere existence of diverse romance options in BioWare’s games. For those who already asked – yes, there are actually people who think and talk like this, and it’s really quite sad.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta get back to pounding it…

And pounding it.

And pounding it.

And pounding it.
