This week’s episode is brought to you by Sterdust, a totally original wrestling persona that WE OWN. We OWN it, WWE!

Anyway, in an industry of liars, even the good guys lie, and those lies can be good lies.

But what happens when lies become so commonplace and acceptable? Then the bad guys lie… and they can’t understand why they’re not the good guys.

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.

The Jimquisition: Exposure

Every game blog wants to make a name for itself, but that desire can sometimes be fulfilled in a most undesirable way. I mean, look what happened to Brash Games!

It doesn’t pay its writers, it revokes author credits when people leave, and its owner has over a decade of duplicitous, shady shit to answer for.

A number of us pooled our resources and drew on many anonymous sources to blow this publication wide open and oh dear is there some grimy shit pooling in its guts.

The Jimquisition: A Video Discussing Whether Or Not Hello Games Lied About No Man’s Sky

After tearing into rabid fans, compliant media, and hype culture, there is one final element to No Man’s Sky that I need to tackle – its creator.

I’ve spent time thinking about this one, digging through the archives, and weighing the arguments. Despite honestly wanting to move onto new subjects, I just had to ask…

… did Hello Games tell a naughty lie?

The Bullshit Roundup: Randy Lies, EA Cries, Mortal Kombat Dies

This edition of Bullshit Roundup relies heavily on the more common definition of the word “bullshit,” as two of our stories describe intense peddlers of it. Both Electronic Arts and Randy Pitchford have made some real “wait, really?” statements this week.

Warner Brothers is keeping it real with some true corporate shite, however, delivering Mortal Kombat X news that is not making fans happy.

Let’s cut to the bullshit!

The Bullshit Roundup: Total Warhammer’s Chaos Ransom, Syndicate Gets Glitched, Naughty Rock Band 4 Reviews

It’s time for another dose of the Bullshit Roundup, your semi-regular look at grotty games industry garbage that deserves a spotlight even if it doesn’t make the main stage.

This week, we’re looking at yet another example of pre-order culture exploitation, another Ubisoft game does the unsurprising, and some Harmonix employees were caught doing something very cheeky indeed!

The Jimquisition: Homicide

It’s been almost a year since Digital Homicide attempted to lock horns with Jim F’n Sterling Son, failing at every turn to produce a “gotcha” or demonstrate they were anything more than hacks.

Following their latest series of stunts – stunts that involve erecting sockpuppet companies, spamming Steam, and leveling threats against yours truly over the phone, it’s time to lay it out there once and for all.

Digital Homicide, enjoy this, my anniversary gift to you.
