The Jimquisition takes time out from personal, embittered, GAF thread-locking drama topics and reheats a favorite kitchen dish – let’s slow roast some asset flips for maximum flavor!

From familiar zombies to a tragic arachnid with a great past and no future, we look at the most overused assets money can buy, and warn Steam Direct to look for the telltale signs of a bad, bad developer.

While people are having fun licking Switch cards and Breathing the Wild, your pal Jim Sterling is dealing with another – yes ANOTHER – utter chancer.

Let’s see what the fun folks at STICLI Games did when they tried to accuse a critical video of trademark violation.

GameStop, it’s time to sit before The Jimquisition and listen to the charges brought before you. Lament, ye sinner, and may God have mercy ‘pon your rotten soul.
