Resident Evil 2 is getting its long awaited remake soon, and Capcom has graced the world with a one-shot thirty minute demo in the RCPD.
So what do we think of that then?
Capcom has decided to embarrass Street Fighter V with ads, or “sponsored content” as they’re calling it.
Today, let’s talk about that, give a brief history of product placement and ads in games, before having a bit of a whinge about the potential future of ad-support videogame garbage.
This came out around the same time Nintendo started charging for online play, and while the blame’s on Capcom, the fact this was promoted in a Nintendo Direct makes the timing absolutely awful.
At least on Switch, the Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle is an online disaster.
Everybody loves lists, especially people who say they don’t. The Jimquisition this week roots through history’s garbage to find the ten worst types of DLC in videogame history.
At least until we think of ten more, then we can do another list. Lists are great!
What do Resident Evil 7 and Bravely Default have in common?
Let The Jimquisition explain, as we celebrate the return of a good Resident Evil game!
Dead Rising 4 was released right at the beginning of the month, but folks are still unhappy about it. While I enjoyed the game myself, Dead Rising‘s veteran fanbase bristles with discontent at what they see as a “dumbing down” of the series and the removal of its best elements.
Usually, a controversial release like this would be drowned in negative Metacritic user reviews at launch, but it took some time for the negativity to boil over this time. Here we are though, on Christmas Eve, and what better way to celebrate a season of goodwill than looking at some really angry comments on the Internet?
Yes, Dead Rising 4 has been METABOMBED… at least after a relatively long period of accumulation.
The Jimquisition comes early and you didn’t need to pre-order it!
Let’s look at why Resident Evil 4 was a classic, why its writing stood the test of time, and what it can tell us about REVII.
… all with a little help from Dr. Crane.

Frank is back! Well, not really. Capcom’s calling him Frank West, but fans of his war coverage ain’t buying it.
Dead Rising 4 is just one in a long line of games that discard voice actors like disposable cameras. Let’s look at exactly why that’s wrong.
