Yay video reviews! I’ve been wanting Jim to do those for a long time and this one was pretty damn good, so i’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of these from Jim.

Liked the review Jim! Came out very nicely. I hope to see more in the future, just worried it will mean less games get reviewed because video takes forever to produce.

No wonder this felt so derivative every time I saw it. It’s basically an exact clone of Breath of the Wild.

I actually like the video review format. Lets me put it on and listen to your sexy, sexy voice while I do something else since the game footage usually isn’t that important. I’m hoping to see more of these for reviews in the future.

If you must switch to video reviews like everyone and their dog, can you at least post transcripts here? CCs would be helpful as well.

I like the video review format you went with for this one. I wonder if some people will want a text version/script if they would prefer to read though.

Anyway, well done!

I much prefer written reviews.
But still the video was good.

Perhaps I’m just getting old?

My initial assumption was that Jim did a video review to annoy Nintendo. They’ll Flag anything with gameplay footage, even reviews, which are unquestionably covered by Fair Use. Though I didn’t notice any extra copyrighted footage in the video, like he would do to confuse the YouTube bots.

My suggestion for reviews in the future is that if you are going to do video reviews, to throw up a script for your review on the Jimquisition site but NOT put the score at the end. I think this might lessen the toxicity of the comments of reviews that fuckers might choose to bring, and they’d have to watch your videos for the score (which, true, they can skip ahead, but it’s also no longer an immediate “scroll down” scenario).

I’m not really one to leave a comment but I got to say long time fan and I LOVE the video format for this review.

So is Jimquisition completely video and audio content now? I understand, you gotta go where the audience is, but I’m a bit bummed to see the written content disappear.

It’s still funny to me how endless reviewers talk about how killing isn’t the focus, then you go on forums and there’s discussion a-plenty on each weapon’s murder capacity. Squidkids kill as much as any soldier does, especially in ranked but even in turf war. Anyway, fair points Jim. I was hyped for this before launch, being a huge fan, but now that I have it… the honeymoon’s over. Salmon Run is the mode I’ve enjoyed most because it’s the only NEW mode, and like Jim I did all the rest already, I got to S+ and bought everything and… Read more »

Reviews are back! Could you also please post the script of the review? Personally I prefer reading them instead of having a video play.

Also, liked the review! Valid points about Splatoon 2.

I’m disappointed that it’s a video review, I like Jim’s written reviews. I find that I learn more about the game he’s reviewing and whether I might like it or not than a video review because Jim is a excellant writer and there are times where I can’t play a video or I am saving my mobile data. Personally, I would prefer a written review but I understand the change to video, as selfish as I may sound, I would love if Jim did both formats for a game he’s reviewing. Thank God For Him!

If they continue in the same vein, I thinking posting the script along with the video will allow those who just want to read to do so, and the video review can exist alongside.

A fair number of the maps in Splatoon 2 are maps from the original Splatoon with some new bits and pieces added in. Why didn’t they do that with all the maps? There must be a reason. It may only make sense to someone at Nintendo who will never be allowed to try to explain it, but it must exist. Same with the weapons, really. Mostly I just want Piranha Pit in the rotation, honestly.

I think the written reviews are better in quality than this video review, it just seemed a bit like a stilted reading of a written review with a few asides that I didn’t think really worked. That said, I recognise this is the first one you’ve done for a while so I think you should definitely stick with it for now as you’ll undoubtedly get better.

That said, I will definitely pick this up at some point especially as I never played the original, but I think I’ll wait a while yet.

Well, that makes it a bit more difficult for me to translate, but it’s cool.

Are all the reviews going to be videos now, or will it be a mix?
