Detroit’s Domestic Abuse Trailer Is A Hackneyed Farce

A new trailer for Quantic Dream’s Detroit: Become Human landed recently as part of Paris Games Week and it’s caused quite a kerfuffle.

The video portrays domestic abuse and details how you can make choices in the game (while waggling a controller) to stop a violent father beating the shit out of his daughter.

So yes, quite the kerfuffle indeed as I’m sure you can imagine.

The Jimquisition: Of Course You Realize, This Means Wargaming

As The Jimquisition gears up for change, we’re reminded that some things stay the same – like spurious YouTube copyright threats.

World of Tanks‘ very own Wargaming.net has been misusing words like “defamation” in order to try and scare its own community… and it’s time for an expert to step in.

Because this isn’t about World of Tanks… this is about OUR shit being fucked with. Again.

I’m sorry if you’re tired of hearing about Brash Games or its owner, Paul Ryan (Not That One).

Unfortunately, those who were recently part of his libelous, treacherous, potentially illegal manifesto don’t have a choice.

And now the Cleaner Is Come.

Why Brash Games Should Apologize

[Note from Jim: Ben McCurry made headlines last week for his amazing review of Pac-Man 256, in which he detailed the shoddy business practices of his own publication knowing full well they wouldn’t check it before it went up.

Brash Games, his previous employer (read: exploiter) has become notorious for not paying staff, altering writers’ review scores, and removing credit for work if somebody quits. Since Brash doesn’t pay its writers, I decided to pay a former Brash writer to talk about his experience. Because I can. 

There will also be more on Brash this Monday. You know what that means.

I now hand you over to Ben McCurry himself!]

Welcome to the furmily, son!

This is the story of Fur Fun, a rubbish Banjo-Kazooie ripoff that was bought by a YouTuber and turned into a hot shitting disaster.

Let’s look at Fur Fun, Dalasreview, and the copyright takedown strikes issued in their name.

The Jimquisition: Genitalia

Oh, Ubisoft! Watch Dogs 2 had to patch out some “particularly explicit” genitalia, and that’s a big ol’ laugh.

However, while one particular naughty bit is gone, others remain. Why is it okay for some, and not others? What’s the difference?

A spirited Jimquisition (one of my new favorites, actually), discusses our attitudes toward penises and vaginas.
