The Jimquisition: The Reviewbisoft Problem

It’s Monday, you cheeky ape, and that means it’s time for The Jimquisition! While I’ve done over 200 videos in this series, this is “episode one” of its all-new, fully-indie era. Now it’s in full HD and at 60 glorious frames-per-second – unlike Assassin’s Creed Unity, a game that incidentally features quite heavily in today’s video!

Thanks for your amazing support so far, and I’m thrilled I’ve been able to get right into producing content so quickly. In addition to this video, look forward to an Escape Dead Island review hitting this very site tonight! I’ll also have Grand Theft Auto V and Super Smash Bros. stuff coming to you this week as well.

Are your videos still going to be going up at the same time, or is this change also going to affect your schedule?

Heck yeah man, congrats on doing this jump! And thanks for fighting for us!
I’m very happy to see this happening, thanks so much for you doing it!
I was saying the other day: people worried about corruption in gaming should support YOU that’s fighting against review events and the likes for YEARS now. That’s how you do it.
Thank god for Jim F’ing Sterling, Son!

Is the Jimquisition available as a video podcast, or can it be? I get GameTrailer reviews automatically downloaded to my phone’s podcast player every morning as they’re available, it would be great if this show could be too.

Hopefully this is the year UBIsoft decides to listen to the consumers.

Loving the clean uncluttered format. Page loads are nice and quick too, another benefit to not having to have each page connect to 30 different ad servers. I have a couple of questions. Whats patreons cut of donations and do you have a way for people to give support without having to go through a middleman? OT: I want to like Ubisoft. They have made some of my favorite games over the years (Anno series sitting at the top with heroes of might and magic not far behind) but they just seem hellbent on making me hate them. Install limits,… Read more »

I think this problem goes well beyond a review embargo, which is a symptom of the problem, not necessarily the problem itself. I’ve notice a disturbing collision between the Hype Train exiting the station earlier and earlier (ex. the time between a first Big Triple-A title announcement to release can be as long a year and a quarter) and then due to what I like to call The Patching Culture you end up with broken or unfinished games. The hype drives people to pre-order games unseen and the Patching Culture encourages developers to release a incomplete game nickel and dimed… Read more »

THANK YOU PRESIDENT OBAMA, YOUR LEGACY IS INTACT.

My suggestion to fellow readers: Stop buying hype machines, start looking indie and AA studios. I changed earlier this year, and frankly, I’m spending 60 less dollars nearly every month and almost never disappointed.

Hello Jim, a great first episode, thanks for that.

A question about the site, though – are you planning on enabling HTTPS? I do not feel like entering my mail address for comments over an unencrypted link. I get enough spam as it is.

Honestly, I thought Jim looked more ‘cinematic’ back at 30FPS…

The sad thing is, that this is just another one of these games that will still sell so much more copies than other (often better) titles without an established brand name.

Oh well Ubisoft “good” job 😡

Great episode, glad to see nothing about the format had to sacrificed.

I don’t know where to put this bit, so I’ll just leave it here:

The font on the website has too little contrast with the background. Reading the articles is very difficult, at least for me personally. I’ve got bad eyes, so it may not be an issue for most people. In any case, consider this my suggestion to darken the font a bit.

I would also like to request a dark background vs light colored type. Just easier on my eyes, thanks.

Good on you Jim. I started following you with your first episode on the escapist and have followed your youtube since you started doing the lets plays. Im excited for your new direction and cant wait for all the Jim Sterling content I can get.

As a side note, would you be adding a store or anything like that? I would love me a Jim Sterling T shirt or dildo bat.

I’ve been playing unity and haven’t had much in the way of glitches, but I’m only a bit into the game.

I was sorry to sign int to escapist and not see jimquisition but good to see the show someplace else.

GOD.. I mean JIM, I’ve been waiting for this video all day. Thank you and I keep looking forward to everything you do on your new website. I am also glad that I rarely do pre-orders or buy things new besides nintendo games. Having a huge backlog helps with the temptation to buy things day one and allows me to weed through the crap. I would be so pissed buying AC Unity, Sonic Boom, or colonial marines or others if I didn’t. Now I actually am one of those people who does like every console assassn’s creed game I’ve played,… Read more »
