The Jimquisition: Paul Ryan (Not That One)

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.

I don’t know if Brash Games is a corrupt corporation that needs to be taken to task or some asshole working out of his garage who needs to be taken to task. I do know that I have less reason to watch your videos, observe your website ads, or donate to your Patreon, the more time you waste revenging incompetent hacks. I understand the ‘big picture’ argument you made defending your decision to “review” god-awful indie games on Steam Greenlight: You want Steam to up its quality-control game by drawing attention to its terrible content. As boring as those videos… Read more »

The tenfold traffic increase is simple really. Brash games went from internet nobody most never heard of too slightly notorious site run by a corrupt D-bag. So ofcourse they get a lot of attention suddenly around the time opencritic shut them off. Paul Ryan (not that one) seems to delude himself into believing it is because of the delisting that traffic increased in order to strengthen his anti-aggregator belief while refusing the obvious reality that the traffic increased cause plenty of people wanted to see the troll’s den themselves. Even i looked it up just to make sure this insane… Read more »

The original statement’s been deleted (as you reported on twitter) and replaced with another ‘brief apology’ which limits itself to roughly the first paragraph of the original statement. How long until Paul Ryan – not that one – amends that one to be cruel and incoherent too?

“‘as soon as they took us off [opencritic] traffic increased tenfold’ I don’t know how that works”
Jim, when opencritic removed them was when the scandal broke ( or at least the opencritic dump), of course the traffic increased when a no name website became the scandal de jour.

Fucking wow. That little snake. How low can you sink to wield someone’s illness as a weapon? If they had had cancer, he probably would have been telling everyone that they were always off having chemo and that messed with his timetable. What a cheap, trashy little snake. Shame on you, Paul Ryan (not that one).

Somewhere the Romino brothers and the guy who made Skate Man: Intense Rescue are breathing a sign of relief that Jim has a new whipping boy all too ready to flagellate himself.

Haha, no

It’s amazing that there are two complete pieces of garbage in the world that are BOTH named Paul Ryan. Holy shit.

Maybe Paul Ryan (Not That One) is Paul Ryan from an alternate dimension where he became a shitty games ‘journalist’ instead of a shitty politician. It would explain everything!

For someone who’s been online for sixteen years he seems to demonstrate a stunning amount of ignorance for how easy it is to fact check things now. My “favorite” part of this whole mess is how he keeps making up quotes out of thin air thinking that people are stupid enough to just completely swallow it. That supposed evil quote from Ben McCurry was amazing. I mean…where the hell was that even supposed to have come from? The way it’s written suggests that it’s not directed towards Paul Ryan Not That One and more like McCurry is gloating about this… Read more »

This is what you can find if you go to Brash Games right now… I don’t know what this is. I don’t know what he is. I don’t think anyone knows what he is.

I’d be curious if this might be an expansion point for The Jimquisition. Jim can’t cover everything and there are decent budding journalists out there.

Can we call him Paulson? See, I used to know a Paul, but he was an immature adult with no grasp of tact and the legal ramifications of his decisions were beyond him. And I’d rather not get them confused.

So Jim, can we expect written reviews from the former unpaid employee’s of Brash Games to show up here for a proper compensation?

I mean… Surely I’m not the only one who enjoys the occasional review from Laura and that wonderful review that started this whole debacle?

You could form a whole review band! Jim and the Quisitioneers!

Chip could be the roadie you blame for all misfortune.

And Conrad Zimmerman could be the main Antagonist after you’ve dealt with Weskers aspirations to be the number one Boglin Boy.

Consider it, Jim. The movie and brand deals basically write themselves!

His statement was deleted off Brash games, but is still available on google cache.

He’s too cowardly to even stand by his cowardice.

This is the only Jimquisition I stopped watching half way through.

I love your work Jim and this issue obviously has significance for you as it involves the industry you work in, but I just see it as the kind of workplace exploitation that happens everyday in pretty much every line of work.

I guess this one is just not for me.
