This weekend I was at PAX East and had been busy shooting some videos with our lovely bearded editor-in-chief when this was uploaded, so in case you missed it, check out the latest Beard View in which I show off one of my fa...
I really enjoyed Resogun -- in fact, my only real complaint was that there wasn't more of it. More is coming, though, and it's not just new levels. First up is a patch, scheduled for June 23, that will add a ship editor and ...
This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. So, here's what we did instead.
Against all odds, Art Hawk perceives. Born from talking to women about videogames, he's strived to show the world that Grand Theft Auto, Dead Rising, Gears of War, and Flappy Bird are all important works of art. Some sa...
Oh look, it's time for more Indigo Prophecy! This time around, we get racist in a bookstore (again), we play basketball by watching basketball and pressing buttons, we push a wheelchair, and we play Simon Says while cutscenes have all the fun.
Indigo Prophecy thrills us all.
There has been much talk about how the gaming world is too toxic, too negative, too full of anger and rage. Jimquisition argues there might be just the right amount of it. The issue is in how it's used.
Anger is a powerful weapon, but like all powerful things, it must be handled with care. Venom can be harnessed to our benefit, provided we be careful not to let it spill into our own faces.
For some reason, I keep thinking hack n' slash RPGs will make for a good video. I keep getting it wrong, or at least picking the wrong games. This is Iesabel, a game that somehow got greenlit for Steam, despite it being utterly rubbish.
Check it out. It's not good.
With Pokemon X and Y now out for public consumption, you're probably curious as to what the best Pokemon are for your silky pleasures. Fortunately, Jim Sterling is here to drop knowledge bombs in yo' face, and tell which Pokemon are the most legit.
I know lots of things about Pokemon. Let me talk to you about Pokemon.
Hey there, cool friends! I've got more Indigo Prophecy coming to you, but right now I'm having a go at pulling my own little YouTube channel up by its bootstraps and experimenting with things. What yummy fun!
Here, I play Vi...
On today's thrilling adventure into David Cage's mental brainspace, we kick the crap out good friends, we get claustrophobic while trying to do our job, and we get very quiet and guilty when lots and lots of racism happens.
Also, crap stealth and some other things.
In this thrilling installment of Indigo Prophecy, we drink water, play the guitar, punch a bag, play the guitar, and listen to more Theory of a Deadman. The fun literally never ends. It will never end. The fun is literally going on forever.
It's gonna move!
I fiddle with the temperature knob and get murderous as I play Quantic Dream's true classic, Indigo Prophecy. Laugh along as we murder people in bathrooms, interrogate distraught women, and listen to music about women doin' ya wrong.
Oh Theory of a Deadman. You scallywags!
There probably won't be any more Legends of Dawn, because the game crashed while I was recording and took all the video with it. Buggy game, that is! Fortunately, we have a different legend for you, with Legends of Aethereus!
Enjoy the world's most thorough tutorial, and let's kill some Definitely-Not-Orcs!
You were promised an episode on season passes, in the wake of Jimquisition complaining about downloadable content. There is a season for all things, and that season has come to pass.
Here is a nice little bit of shouting on why season passes are ridiculous, and why it would behoove you to pass up on the bloody things.
In what is easily my favorite Now Bloody Playing to date, I battle Skittlers and meet the best voice actors in the world, all with Legends of Dawn!
I had a blast with this one, and you can expect to see much more of it in future. Way too much of it.
Here's some Shadow Warrior to tide you over while our review is in the works. I go stab stuff up, look for glowing statues, and watch rabbits having sex. All in a day's work for this Stan Bush enthusiast!
We might do more of this one. Depends how much y'all like it.
Let's look for a playable woman protagonist in a videogame that doesn't rely on the same pool of restrictive stereotypes as every other playable woman protagonist.
To do this, let's look at a fighting game from 1994. That one about the dinosaurs. Yes, that one. Because I damn well sure can't find many better example. Folks, be prepared ... to RAGE.
Oh look, it's Neverending Nightmares, that creepy looking adventure game Jonathan talked about the other day. It's only got a few hours left on its Kickstarter, and this video probably won't help it. We can only cross our fingers!
Anyway, I played the demo. You can watch me play it, if you want.
Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is funny, gloriously shameless, and solid in the action department. It is also, unfortunately, kind of broken in unforgivable ways, and if you get caught in its terrible traps, you could ruin your entire game.
I wish I could just be showing off how much fun this game is. I can't though. Now I'm sad in my face.

This week, Yahtzee details that growing videogame tradition, the need to press "X" in order to do anything and everything. Meanwhile, your buddy Jim Sterling pays tribute to one of the finest actors ever born, Dean "Once Was Superman For A Bit" Cain.
Oh, Dean Cain. You're so beautiful.
In today's little carnival of misery, I try to contain my internal juices as I play Motion Sickness: The Game and fire my squirty gun at the Genericons. Yeah, Alien Rage isn't very good.
A full review is coming later today, where I further eviscerate this complete waste of time and money.
People have been buzzing about Race The Sun lately, and so I decided to check it out for your sensual enjoyment. I'm not very good at it, but I'm having a laugh with it, and that's what matters. At the end of the day, that's what bloody matters.
So yeah, watch this video if you like!
Oh, and Race The Sun can be voted for on its Greenlight page right here.
Some gamers are skipping Grand Theft Auto V, unwilling to play the role of a thief, a gangbanger, or a psychopath. While others may shy away from being the villain, Jim Sterling actively revels in it.
Indeed, to play the villain can not only be fun, it can be downright fascinating.
Here we go, at last! The thrilling conclusion to Outlast, played by a man who ended how he started -- completely pickled. In this final chapter, we evade the Nude Brothers, we witness the Big'Un get what he deserves, we reun...
Your good pal Jim Sterling returns to Mount Massive Asylum for another descent into madness. This time, we see yet more naked butts, faff about with three fuses, get chased by the big'un again, and have an encounter with a pair of old, nude, friends.
There. You got another Outlast video. Satisfied? Satisfied, now that you got, finally, your cheesy balls?
Discovered a new horror game on Steam last night, so I decided to record myself playing it for your ridiculous entertainment. It's called Doorways, it bills itself as a survival horror game, but it kind of isn't. It's interesting, though!
Why not watch the video and see if you, too, find it interesting? Maybe you don't. That's okay too.
Time for some more stupid gameplay video stupidity for you to swallow into your gawking eyes. Why not watch me play Shelter for a minute? I'm going to wander around and drop onion things in front of little baby badgers.
Well then, that's fun isn't it? Yes. That's fun.
Today I am playing Delver, a roguelike-esque first-person adventure recommended to me after I played Paranautical Activity. For those of you who weren't so hot on that latter game, methinks this one is far more your speed.
We will have more Outlast for you this week, that much is certain, I just felt like trying new things. I may give Shelter a go next. Then it's back to the scarytimes!
Here's some Grand Theft Auto V gameplay to cram inside of your heads. If you are one of those not currently playing it, this will be a delightful little treat for your mushy brains. Alternatively, if you are playing it, come click on the video anyway. My ego needs the views.
Enjoy some moving pictures of me running through GTAV's "Blitz Play" mission. It's a thing you can do!
This week, Jim loads his gun and shoots holes in the argument that certain games suffer from ludonarrative dissonance, just because they're violent. Because really, people, that's not even what ludonarrative dissonance is!
If you're gonna use big words to sound smart, use 'em correctly ... guttersnipes.
It's time for the fourth installment of Outlast. On today's spooky chapter, I run around in circles from a doctor as murderous as he is naked, get smashed by a big 'un, and turn some valves in the name of progress. It's all scary stuff!
We may very well be coming to the end of the road after this one. It's been fun!
It's time for the third part of my Outlast gameplay extravaganza! This time, I get caught down in the sewers with Smashy Smashy Egg Man, I get chased through corridors by maniacs, and I enjoy a session with a naked butt doctor.
How can you refuse, with a summary like that?
So, I'll be doing your Grand Theft Auto V review for you, and you'll doubtless want to know exactly how biased and paid off I am. This video, produced in the name of disclosure, reveals the expensive gift items and stacks of loot that definitely swayed my opinion. Or not. You decide.
Check out the towel, bullet whistle, and dog pockets that have bought your upcoming GTA V review!
Your ol' chums Jim and Yahtzee are back with more rhymes for your face. This week, Yahtzee talks about the rigors of guard duty, while I share revitalizing secrets with you. Kweh!
As always, the human condition is explored by the pair of us.
A more sober version of me returns to the nuthouse for part two of Outlast. This time around, I come face to face with murderous naked men, catch a necrophiliac in the act, and pick up some batteries.
Hopefully you continue to enjoy the series! I love all of you watching so far, I love you on the butts.
Freedom of expression is not freedom to express without challenge. A game is within its rights to include any content it does, but that content is not sacred.

Last night, I got myself a little more drunk than I'd planned to and, in my feverish state of mind, decided it was a perfect time to fire up Outlast and record myself playing it. Going in blind, this is my first time reaction to what's already turning out to be a terrifying game.
People seem to have really enjoyed this one so far, so I intend to give y'all some more Outlast in future.
I've been wanting to play Paranautical Activity -- the groovy looking roguelike FPS -- for quite some time, but I've been so busy I didn't even see it hit Steam! I promptly downloaded it this morning and decided to record my...
During this past weekend, I had the pleasure of sharing some screen time with Marcus Beer, known to GameTrailers viewers as the Annoyed Gamer. In this crossover video, we discuss preview events (and why I don't do them), independent developers, and the classic problem of industry overspending.
I hope you enjoy watching it almost as much as I enjoyed making it, ahur hur hur!
It's time for another playthrough from your best buddy Jim Sterling! This time we're having an early look at Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, the upcoming horror game from The Chinese Room.

Payday 2 is a success, because the people making and publishing it weren't completely stupid. What sorcery is this?
Yes, it's one of those episodes where we celebrate one game getting it right and not stuffing everything up. Speaking of stuffing, Jim at last unveils the Dragon Dildo ... and does things with it. Terrible things.
People insisted I upload the next part of my Gone Home playthrough, even though I did a stupid and it got really boring. So yeah, have fun watching half an hour of utter drivel! Or not, if you don't want it.
Either way HIT LIKE N' SUBSCRIBE LOLZ!

Your best friend Jim Sterling gets his boots polished and prepares to dive some ass! Sorry, kick some ass. It's Divekick, the new indie fighting game that many people are salivating over. Come, salivate with Jim and watch him humiliate himself for your amusement.
We will have a full review for you soon, but for now, watch this video I made on the Internet!
Also, Shoals has two kicks.
