Get your drunk arse home, mayor
Cities: Skylines was absolutely fantastic. Developer Colossal Order did a fantastic job of balancing its fun city creation tools with a detailed simulation that made SimCity look like some matchsticks held together with sick...
'Turn-based game... but competitive!'
Rift developer Trion Worlds has announced its newest project: Atlas Reactor.
A free-to-play, simultaneous turn-based strategy game, all players carry out their turns at the same time, meaning there isn’t hours and hour...
Hey I'm Knight, I'm not so Knight
Laura (and the rest of the internet since it was leaked yesterday) was right! Nintendo has confirmed that there is an Amiibo coming for Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight.
The amiibo will unlock an exclusive co-op mode fo...
Landing, crashing, burning up in orbit
Kerbal Space Program, a game about planning out a really complex space mission only to make an innocent astronaut drift endlessly in the dark, cold void of space, is coming to the Wii U.
The trailer uploaded by Nintendo is a...
Taurus Demon is toast
Twitch Plays Dark Souls had been a bit of a shambles right from the get go. Players spent days and days stuck in the very first section of the game, at which point the creator of the stream changed the rules and made the ent...
Discooooos innnn Spaaaaacccceeee
Chucklefish’s Starbound has received its latest stable release, adorably titled Pleased Giraffe. The big, major addition in this update is the ability to colonise your worlds.
The idea is simple, set up a house on a pl...
Who's that man with the hard, hard beak?
I dislocated a finger playing Octodad. It popped straight out while I was trying to tentacle my way around an aquarium.
Allow my plight to be a warning to all of the new players who will be able to potentially cause ph...
Borderlands' art style meets Zelda?
Torchlight developer Runic Games has announced its newest project, Hob.
Hob is a vibrant, suspenseful adventure game. As players delve into the mysteries around them, they discover a planet in peril. Can it be mended, or wi...
Download YouTube while you can!
Homebrew has become a bit of a Hydra for Nintendo recently. They pulled down IronFall due to an exploit which allowed non-approved software to be run on the 3DS, and in response almost the same exploit has now also been rele...
THQ and Konami were probably bad choices
Guillermo del Toro hasn't had a very good experience with video games, has he? First he spent literally years working with THQ on something, only for them to go bankrupt and sell off all of their stuff. Then he went to work ...
Seasons, villages, replays, and more
Mount & Blade consumed literally months of the lives of some of my friends. Capturing cities, becoming a great ruler, wide-scale battles on horseback, it’s no wonder it took them the way it did. Sleepless nights, m...
Adam Sandler ruins everything yet again
Pixels was a bit of a train wreck, wasn’t it? It currently sits at a meager 18% on Rotten Tomatoes, and the general consensus on the film is people would rather pour salt into a papercut in their eyeball than have to wa...
That ugly mofo is $4.99
Although it was possible to fight the Predator in Mortal Kombat X recently, he'll be making his way officially as a combatant very soon. NetherRealm has announced that his debut will be July 7, at which point he will ru...
First time ever shown
For the first time ever, footage of the Point of View developed version of Sonic X-treme is being shown publicly, running on Sega Saturn hardware to boot. This build is going to be released for download on May 6, so if you'v...
'Maybe I'm just good and you're not'
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...
Patch and expansion out later this month
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 ...
Slow news day?
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.
All of life's mysteries explained
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.
Must stop playing hack n' slash RPGs
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.
Too legitty to quitty!
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.
Grab a mop and get sloppin'!
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...
This is racist, right?
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.
My theory of a Deadman CD collection
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!
Living my pawn's life
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!
Best tutorial ever ... except kind of not
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!
Jimquisition happens every Monday!
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.
The brains behind Jimquisition and Zero Punctuation get lyrical
Oh look, more bloody poems for your damn eyeholes.
You are totally allowed to look at this video by clicking on it and watching it until completion. It's okay, I won't mind.
I won't tell.
