The Jimquisition: Gamers don't want realistic violence


2:00 PM on 07.09.2010



Warning: Video contains footage that some viewers may find disturbing.

This week's Jimquisition loses a little on the "angry rant" side and gains a little on the "serious business" side. It was filmed in partial response to Leigh Alexander's "Who Cheers For War?" article, an article that caused something of a stir last week. In it she talked of gamers who want realistic violence. I offer a counter to that. 

Aside from erroneously naming Alexander's column (the perils of unscripted bollocks!), I think this video turned out well. No aspect ratio problems, no camera angles that cut off the top of my head. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. In any case, I hope you like it and I hope you have something to say regarding the issue at hand!

What's Up: Unreal Tournament, AC Unity, X-Men trading cards, DOOM II RPG

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. more

What's Up: ME4's Mako, Deadpool test footage, Gal Gadot as Xena

Monday is the worst day of the week, so Bill and I are coping with it by drinking blueberry smoothies and talking about wonderful things like superhero nonsense from Comic-Con, Mass Effect's exciting new (old) sharkmobile, Trine 2's awful poetry, Destiny's two unoriginal races, and True Detective, which Bill doesn't like, and therefore isn't allowed to have blueberry smoothies anymore.more
