The Jimquisition: Your reviews are TEH BIAS


12:00 PM on 07.16.2010



[The Jimquisition is a weekly unscripted rant from Jim Sterling, aka some fat twat with a microphone. He swears and complains and occasionally makes some sort of interesting point.]

This episode is about the noble game review, that most wonderful of subjects which never fails to bring the morons out of the woodwork. Two reviews in particular brought out some intensely idiotic comments concerning the nature of "bias" and "objectivity." I tackle these subjects in what is definitely the most vitriolic episode to date. 

Do you think reviews should be objective? Do you not know how to use the word "bias" correctly? Do you get upset because someone's review score isn't the same as everybody else's on Metacritic? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then you might want to brace yourself for Jimpact.
