First JonTron, then Boogie2988. I can’t wait for Jim Sterling to get red pilled. I’m hoping sooner rather than later.

“If you get into it in a way that you shouldn’t, it’s quite fun.” – Jim Sterling

This may be my favorite thing you’ve said yet.

I have no idea what you’re talking about regarding Dark Souls and blocking. I blocked my way through the whole of the first game. It’s better than trying to use the broken dodge button. It gives a very different experience, certainly – Ornstein and Smough are trivial if you take down Ornstein first that way, and Gwyn is basically impossible (I ended up cheesing him with Iron Body and a face-race with my Black Knight Greataxe) – but I find it odd you’d think it was a bad strategy.

The cat puns were so torturous…and it was awesome…the pain was wonderful. hahaha

Also, This news of a season pass in Breath Of The Wild is a big turn off and just adds more reasons for my coming retirement from consoles …although I will still get Breath Of The Wild (minus the season pass) as my last hoorah, it still looks cool after all.

24:27 “And it is *very* moddable.” Well, at least it’s got that going for it. The Mini is kind of a hard sell with the games pre-installed; sure, it’s got the Marios (except for Lost Levels; Japan’s SMB2), and Zeldas, and even a few 3rd party hits from Konami & Capcom, but there are some odd omissions. For example, the US version has Final Fantasy as an exclusive, the Japanese version gets Final Fantasy III as an exclusive, but no region gets Final Fantasy II.

I for one am very excited for Sniper:Ghost Warrior 3 and Ghost Recon Wildlands. Other games coming out in April and May:ATV Renegades, Flatout 4, Stardew Valley collectors edition, Micro Machines World Series, Syberia 3, Valhalla Halls Definitive edition, Little Nightmares, LEGO City Undercover, The Silver Case, ArmaGallant: Decks of Destiny, the new Prey game, Injustice 2, Portal Knights, Birthdays the Beginning, RiME, MXGP3: Motocross, Redout and Sonic Mania. Metro Last Light sectioned off Ranger mode(which was apparently due to an agreement with THQ) I enjoyed that photo of Jim and the NES Classic, partially because two of the games… Read more »

Four Year Strong are an actual band. They play pop punk and are quite good.

Also the crash trilogy comes out in June too! Whooo!

Also remember when Metro:LL had a hard mode as a pre-order incentive? Ha ha

I never got the sentiment that Overwatch provides any significant depth to its universe. Yeah, there are some pretty cool character designs, but they serve no purpose other than provide a blank canvas for thousands of tomes of erotic fan fiction.

Yeah, generic manly viking men are lazier, but ultimately it all seems to amount to the same thing.

For gav

Oni ki works as super armor instead of stamina
When they’re out theyll still attack but your hits stagger them and interrupt their moves

My reaction to Gav’s saying “skeleton warriors” was pretty much to yell SKELETON WARRIORS much like Jim did. That’s how you know you’re watching too much Jimquisition.

Warning: this comment contains skeletons.

I disagree with the notion that Nioh doesn’t explain things well; it does, and in fact I was really baffled by Gav and Laura saying it doesn’t explain what the Living Water skill (ki pulse when dodging) does because the description is literally just “Allows you to ki pulse even when dodging”. That seems pretty clear-cut to me! There’s fairly detailed tutorials, the skill screen has videos showing how attacks are performed and what they do, it’s like night and day with explaining things compared to Dark Souls. I switch weapons occasionally, although that’s usually because I don’t want to… Read more »

Does Jim disqualify games from Jimquisition Awards on the basis of them having season passes the same way he does for fee to pay elements? If he doesn’t, I’d have to wonder why he’s only willing to punish one specific type of corporate greed made at the player’s expense but not the others.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to the next Nintendo-focused JQ so very much…

Quick tips for Nioh, in reference to what was mentioned in the podcast: -The demons will fall over if you destroy their horns. Either a quick ranged shot, or a high arcing attack can do so. -Those stats you chose at the beginning don’t matter at all. You aren’t locked into sticking to the weapons that you chose, it just gives a permanent +1 to your base stat. It is objectively best to choose the weapon/guardian attributed to Heart, Body, and Spirit because every build will use those stats. -It’s a good idea to have a second weapon to learn… Read more »

Can we please get some episodes of a proper f*cking length again soon!? Each episode of podtoidquisition should be a movie unto itself, with the video track missing, the plot missing, the direction missing, and many other things missing… Really it should only be movie-like in terms of its length, and its production budget. Speaking of which, when is Adam Sandler coming back on?

I know the song Jim is talking about at the start of the episode.

I don’t know anything except the same bits he knows.

Buying hard mode eh? Hearing that’s unlocked my soft mode. I’ll admit that may have fallen down a bit, couldn’t keep it up, the joke lacked stamina which is even more disappointing when you consider how short it was.

I’m talking about dicks by the way.

I’m going into this one with an open mind Jim. Better be more For Honor and less rabbit porn.

And Sound Cloud is terrible. I’d advise everyone just get the podcast off iTunes.
