The Jimquisition: YOU'RE PLAYING THE GAME WRONG!


1:00 PM on 10.01.2010



So, we reviewed Hydrophobia this past week. You may or may not have heard what happened in the fallout of certain Hydrophobia reviews, and the behavior of the game's developer, Dark Energy Digital. You can read an excellent article on the debacle here. Needless to say, the situation hasn't been pretty.

This week's Jimquisition takes on developers who are doing injury to their industry by acting like brats about review scores, and the recent accusations of reviewers not playing games "properly." It's a pretty emotive rant, so put on your seatbelt and prepare for a bumpy ride.

Also, if you don't like this video, give me your phone number so I can call you up and tell you how to watch it correctly.
