Jimquisition: Mass Effect 3: A Gay Erotic Love Story

Let it not be said that I can't get mileage out of a concept. My Mass Effect 3 gay love story went over really well when it was posted on Destructoid last week, so I did a sultry reading of it on this week's Jimquisition for...

Mass Effect 3: An Erotic Gay Love Story
by Jim Sterling

The Mass Effect fan seductively slid his disc into the tray, the warm humming of his computer implying an eagerness to receive. With hands almost trembling in anticipation, he booted up Origin, greeted with the familiar pop-up informing him that he needed to download an update. He smiled back at it, like an old friend returned from faraway travels. 

He consumed a Diet Mr. Pibb while Origin updated itself -- a stiff drink to calm his nerves, put fire in his belly. Tonight would be a great night. A passionate night. A night he'd remember in his wildest fantasies and relive in his most wondrous dreams. 

Tonight was the night he would begin to play Mass Effect 3.

Should Diablo III be a rhythm-puzzle game?

I've not played the Diablo III beta, but I have seen screenshots on IGN which I usually steal to crop their logo out and then use as header images. Still, I can't help but feel that the game would have been much better as a r...

Art Juice: Iwata's Nub Love

On this week's edition of Art Juice, which is a real thing now, I turn my illustrative talents toward the "Nubageddon" controversy, with this chillingly satirical piece that I think speaks to us all. It's called Iwata's Nub L...

Review: The 3DS Ambassador Certificate photo
Review: The 3DS Ambassador Certificate
by Jim Sterling

Nintendo is giving early adopters twenty free videogames from its dusty old vaults, and that's fine, but those hoping for something fresher and/or worth more than a collective five bucks were left disappointed ... until now! 

See, not only is Nintendo giving away ten NES games and ten GBA games, it's also letting ambassadors get their hands on an all-new piece of software -- The 3DS Ambassador Certificate

We downloaded this hot item right away and gave it a full review. Trust us when we say this it's worth turning your 3DS on for!

Top ten games we can't wait for on Google+ Games
by Jim Sterling

Nick Chester, Dale North and myself are all patiently waiting for Google to finally roll out G+ Games in our respective areas. We cannot wait to play them, because we love videogames in all shapes and sizes.

While we got ourselves incredibly excited, we started to list out the titles we were most looking forward to on the hottest new social networking service. Some of them are already available at launch, but others might take some time to reach us. Have a look and see if you're as excited about these as we are!

Pokémon Black and White released today, and you'd be surprised at how many people said they're opting for White. Obviously, this is utterly racist, as I'm sure you've heard 1,000 times on the Internet already today.&nb...
