Review: The Stanley Parable

How do you review a game like The Stanley Parable? To describe any one part of it is to risk its ruination. To detail what it has to say about game design, the illusion of choice, and the psychology of the gamer is to tell you too much.&nbs...


Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 4

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 ...


Jimquisition: Toxic

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, bu...


Squirty Play - Iesabel

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.&nb...


Top Ten Legit Pokemon

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 mo...


Squirty Play - Viscera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior

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 Viscera Cleanup D...


Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 3

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, cra...

Pokemon X/Y review photo

Review: Pokemon X and Y

Certain game series can get away without making significant changes to their formula -- in fact, there are some that would risk infuriating their fans if they did alter too much. Games like The Legend of Zelda, Street Fighter, or Dynasty Wa...


Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing Pt. 2

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...


Podtoid 273: Julia Child's Ghost Penis

Danny Baranowsky is in the house, back with the Podtoid gang by popular demand. The game composer is on hand to talk about Jonathan going face-down-ass-up, Conrad pottering about in the garden, and Julia Child scaring children with a penis ...


Indigo Prophecy - Now Bloody Playing

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 Th...


Gamers: The Official Picture

Screenshot taken of the comment section of, in a post about the upcoming Battlefield 4 Battle Packs.  As you can see, it manages to capture absolutely everything about the modern gamer in just two short statements.


Legends of Aethereus - Now Bloody Playing

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 t...

Jimquisition: Reasons To Pass On Season Passes

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 s...

Beyond reviewed photo

Review: Beyond: Two Souls

It's hard to divorce David Cage, the public figure, from the games Quantic Dream makes. He is, after all, a man who put himself in Indigo Prophecy's tutorial, immortalized as the movie director he's always dreamed of being. The self-styled ...


Legends of Dawn - Now Bloody Playing

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 m...


Podtoid 272: Horses Are Watching A Toy Masturbate

On this week's Podtoid, Jonathan Holmes finally breaks bad, but not before he runs the sexiest dog hotel you ever did see! Elsewhere, Willem Dafoe goes to Heaven and meets a saucy Dolly Parton, while MANY OTHER THINGS HAPPEN!There's also so...


Rhymedown Spectacular: Cabin Fever

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.


Shadow Warrior - Now Bloody Playing

Here's some Shadow Warrior to tide you over while our review is in the works. I go stab stuff up, look for glowing statues, and watch rabbits having sex. All in a day's work for this Stan Bush enthusiast!  We might do more of this one...

Rain review photo

Review: Rain

Sony has a stable of impressive top-tier game franchises -- Uncharted, Killzone, God of War, the kind of blockbuster productions every console needs to open eyelids among the mainstream users. I, however, will remember Sony's impact on this...


Jimquisition: Vertigo

Let's look for a playable woman protagonist in a videogame that doesn't rely on the same pool of restrictive stereotypes as every other playable woman protagonist. To do this, let's look at a fighting game from 1994. That one about the din...


Cookie Clicker - Now Bloody Playing

People keep talking about Cookie Clicker like it's the most amazing game yet, but don't get it. I don't get it. I don't get it. I don't get it. Click.


Neverending Nightmares - Now Bloody Playing

Oh look, it's Neverending Nightmares, that creepy looking adventure game Jonathan talked about the other day. It's only got a few hours left on its Kickstarter, and this video probably won't help it. We can only cross our fingers! Anyway, ...


Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is funny, gloriously shameless, and solid in the action department. It is also, unfortunately, kind of broken in unforgivable ways, and if you get caught in its terrible traps, you could ruin your entire...


Podtoid 271: Tingle's Tiny Tadger

It is an experimental new Podtoid, as this week we recorded the questions segment live! Yes, the question part of the show was broadcast online and we answered queries in REAL TIME! It went of surprisingly well, too.  Elsewhere, Jonath...

Its not a film for everyone, but if youre heavily invested in the worlds of Dark Souls and Bloodborne, I highly recommend checking out Angels Its clear that Miyazaki was heavily inspired by the film when you look at design philosophy in the series
