This review is as cynical and exploitative as the film this game’s based on.
On what may be our favorite episode yet, the gang talks Spongebob Sex, Donald Trump, and Jim Hiccuping Sterling Son! Did you know Trump cures hiccups? You will now!
We also have a shameful tangent about Batman’s kink lifestyle and start assigning sex names to everything. Jimquisition Live is discussed, alongside the announcements of the We Happy Few casting and Jim Sterling’s Licensed Game Experience.
And yes, Jimquisition Live is still coming. I promise.
You will notice I’ve now got Disqus comments running on the site – heaven help me. I’ve imported all the existing ones, so your angry shouts and wry observations remain intact.
I realize there are design issues currently. The current grey background of the site does not play nice with the comments themselves. I’ll be working on that. Or at least finding someone more competent than me to do it.
(Edit: Thanks to Pomcomic on Twitter, the comments have their own background now. I don’t know shit about design, so thanks for the tip!)
The site overall is going to get some visual overhauls as soon as I find someone trustworthy and awesome to hire. Look forward to that. Until then, please understand!
Journey, one of the finest games of the last generation, has made its way to the PlayStation 4, and it’s still as beautiful as ever. To celebrate this port, I’ve decided to port a review, originally written for Destructoid, now “remastered” on The Jimquisition. Because if game companies can do it, reviewers can too!
Note: I’m experimenting with a new spoiler system in this review to discuss a major plot resolution. It should be hidden by default, but I can’t guarantee it on all browsers until I get enough user feedback. Caution advised.
We’ve heard of bullshots, we’ve heard of “downgrade” controversies. A relatively new form of misleading hype is something I’ve dubbed “The Mic Trick.”
Ubisoft has been slyly performing the trick for the past two E3s, and it’s time we talked about it, because I’ve got this weird feeling that Europe’s EA doesn’t quite realize we’ve cottoned onto it yet.
I will return with my shield, or upon it. Tonight at 7:00pm Texas Time, Jimquisition Live blasts out at SGC 2015.
I’ll be onstage with prizes, ranting, and Miniature Fantasy Willem Dafoe with a shot of what you love.
The event is being livestreamed and, if my posting from a phone worked, that stream is embedded here.

Oh Lord, the nerves.
This week, we have some fond things to say about Satoru Iwata, honoring his passing with sincerity and respect. Then we talk about Randy Pitchford with basically the opposite tone.
Elsewhere, we talk about the terrible GODZILLA game, Gavin becomes the GrundleGav, and Laura eats toad-in-the-hole. Also, pregnant Minions!
