The Jimquisition: Delayed Reaction

Well here we are again. No Man’s Sky isn’t even cold yet and we’ve got Final Fantasy XV filling in with the unreal hype and ludicrous “fan” outrage.

Yet more messengers have been shot as a delay news story became another example of what happens when hype culture rots people’s brains away.

Can all the idiots who were saying “my sources tell me he’s lying!” on Reddit get downvoted into oblivion now? Because, ironically, THEIR sources, if they even exist, should be called into question now.

Sadly, that’s the problem with modern zealot or just fanboy culture. Hell I 36, and I am curious as to what the hell happened to my generation and every subsequent generation after. Shit you not, over the weekend I took someone to lunch. He wasn’t ready to order yet, but I was and the waitress was at the table so to give him time and be polite, I ordered. Because I ordered BEFORE he was ready, he literally ran out to the car crying. He came back 20-30minutes later after the food had been served, and began to me. “Didn’t… Read more »

Something I’ve always wanted, is for the anonymity aspect of the online community to go away. Imagine if every inane statement those trolls ever made had their real name next to it; maybe some of them would think twice about posting.

I don’t even get why anyone would be mad at this delay, but then again I say this as someone who is happy about it because this delay works in my favor. I have one big game a month picked out from now to November. Tomorrow Inside finally comes out for PS4, Semptember has the Bioshock trilogy remastered(I have never played any of them so it’s a good deal for me), In October the chains of exclusivity comes off of Rise of the Tomb Raider making t available on PS4 finally and thanks to the delay Final Fantasy XV in… Read more »

I get that it’s frustrating when a game you’re excited for is delayed or whatever, it happens to all of us but fucking hell people need to grow up.

Jim, please make a Fuckotaku News segment. I don’t even have anything against Kotaku. I just think it would be hilarious to see what other people would think about it.

Does For Honor have a set launch date?

And seriously, it’s a fucking delay. I would get someone get moderately frustrated at rumors of cancelation (But no to the point of harassing the people reporting!) but a two month delay of a game that’s been through development hell for almost a decade!? Maybe more, I even lost count at this point!

Jesus, that’s just repulsive. Literally repulsive behavior. If you are one of the people who were seriously wishing people get fired for doing their job, then… I don’t know, don’t approach me, is what I’m saying.

This is why Reddit, Gaf and Twitter and other internet forum like that are basically a septic tank ready to catch and hold in it’s loving embrace, all of the little shits dropped from the world of fandom’s stankin ass, and why anyone with and ounce of sense and self respect will avoid those places like the plague. They offer little of real value and only contribute to The Dumbening of society.

The internet unleashed the world’s stupidity on itself. This is what people sound like when you don’t have fear that face-to-face interaction creates. You can hear the hatred and selfishness that lies in the heart of everyone, and all that ever held it back before was the fear of consequences. Everyone else is terrible, annoying and stupid, whereas the person everyone sees themselves as is kind, decent, and most hilariously of all, the very essence of LOGIC! Everyone is obsessed with how logical they are. That’s just the internet. Every day I’ll come across some opinion that annoys me and… Read more »

Interesting video though what you say can potentially be used against the wrong people. In my experience, the people you are talking about either won’t listen or do listen, but think they aren’t the problem and then treat people they don’t like as the problem.

This is something I felt first hand when I’m told to stop whining or caring about LGBTQ+ characters in fiction or other issues. The worst was on Battle.Net when I was sent hate and vile when I asked if they would ever considering including a Gender fluid character into the game.

You’re entirely right, but this episode and the last make me think of the same question about the delivery of some parts of these; why bother directly addressing this sort of person, when you know full well they aren’t listening? Beyond doing it for entertainment, I mean. Pointing and laughing at a turd is good fun, but trying to make the turd stop smelling is futile. I expected the XV delay to send people haywire, but christ I didn’t think they were that desperate about it. Being so close to the NMS outrage, I have to wonder if this is… Read more »

On another note, I’m glad it was delayed. Reasoning is legit and will make it a better game, Square-Enix didn’t bullshit about it or anything (it’s just the lead designer sitting in what looks like the lobby apologising, then promising a gameplay trailer, which he delivered) and it comes out at a better time for most people anyway.

But oh no, two months. If you knew about this game since its announcement, this is nothing.

Hey, you’re going through with that For Honor delay right? ‘Cos I’d like to be able to play through Persona 5 too and them releasing on the same day is gonna fuck with me. Thanks in advance.

For some reason, the biggest take-away I got from this is that I think Jim got a haircut recently. It looks really good, man!

One upside to the Metal Gear Survive is that we don’t have to shell out $60 to be entertained by Konami. We can just go to the internet, look at what they are doing next, and BAM!.. hours of hilarity.

It’s funny, when Jim said “wait to write your comments”, and he showed the clip from FF15, I was compelled to immediately go down here and write “Hey, what’s that game he’s showing? I didn’t know Ride to Hell: Retribution got a sequel!” (10 years of development and that thing still looks sooooo bad ugh) Serious Mode, tho, at this point, we can only hope that the reality is that it’s NOT as bad as we think. That maybe, for each actual person writing these comments, they have a dozen sockpuppets putting them up elsewhere. Or even better, that some… Read more »

You know what? This outrage at people relaying possible delays it’s just another facet of a problem I’m noticing more and more in America, which is the misplaced animosity against the press. The ignorant and easily-swayed masses rallying against those who are here to help them in forming their own opinions on things that matter. But instead of doing that, they push back with completely misguided anger.

“This person is bringing me bad news, therefore they’re bad”.

Get your act together, Americans.

Called it last week.

Seriously, this fanboy outrage is so predictable by this point, you can basically see it coming whenever something is delayed or changed once it’s been announced.

Its always adorable watching people absolutely convince themselves that the world is one conspiracy after another centered around short-term gain at the expense of them.

Then again, thats why you really cant tell an alt right gamer, a tea party member, or an right-wing evangelical apart anymore. They all have the same fantasy of being the last good in the world, surrounded by evil and darkness.

On the subject of Titanfall 2 did anyone else think the number of players the game was showing looked quite low?

On a completely unrelated note… Is it me or do the words “career” and “Korea” sound similar?
