    Jimquisition: Revivify The Cold Vitae

    I should be getting a Vita for my birthday this week. This harshed my buzz a little, not gonna lie. Seriously, you can't even get Spyro on it?

    Jimquisition: Monetizing Whales For The Retention Of Virality

    That's capitalism for ya.

    Jimquisition: Accepting the Isms

    Were it so simple; once I learn there's something problematic about something I like, I can never look at it the same way again, like learning my best friend killed a baby. Not that I'm resistant to criticism, it just makes me sad.

    Zero Punctuation: Paper Mario: Sticker Star

    "got, got, got, need, need, got" That was nostalgic.

    The Big Picture: The Prophesy of Freakazoid

    I didn't really like this show as a kid, and I probably still wouldn't like it. Sorry, I just hate annoying characters.

    Jimquisition: Why the Wii U May Have Already "Won" Next-gen

    I'd never heard of smart TVs until now. I guess it's obvious thing, but that motion control looks awkward. I don't really care about Bayonetta 2 or Wii U, but after thinking about it I guess it's a good idea. Though I feel sorry for the fans who don't want to buy a Wii U and will now have to...

    Escapist Expo: My Favorite Game

    It seems Jim's cursed with microphones.

    Jimquisition: Old Man Mario

    Not only are the new games uninspired, they dilute any love I had for previous games; I tried replaying Galaxy a couple of months ago, and it inspired no emotions in me, I'm burned out on everything it does. So how long until someone brings up Moviebob still liking Mario games?

    Zero Punctuation: Quantum Conundrum

    I already found him. I won't name and shame him here, but seriously it's really easy to find.

    Jimquisition: The Definition of Art Games

    Me too. I like to make a game of guessing what the next Jimquisition will be about from the conversations in the latest Podtoid. I wrongly thought last week would be about Tropes Vs Women, for example.

    Jimquisition: The Definition of Art Games

    Similarly, I remember being confused by the term "Genre Movie/Film" until Moviebob explained it, but now realize it's fit for its purpose.

    Zero Punctuation: Lollipop Chainsaw

    Indeed, I didn't mean to imply LC was problematic, just if that was what went through the minds of the people you mentioned. Being fairly interested in feminism myself, may I ask where one might find such petitions?

    Zero Punctuation: Lollipop Chainsaw

    I don't understand people who think a single game is capable of ruining the industry. Maybe if it sold Call of Duty numbers and people started copying it, but that obviously isn't going to be the case. Do they perhaps mean "indicative of existing problems in the industry"?

    Zero Punctuation: Lollipop Chainsaw

    I didn't think much of it while playing through the story, but I find it fun replaying the levels and playing it like an arcade game.

    Jimquisition: The Best Looking Game of This Generation

    This is why it irks me to see so many 2D side-scrollers going with 3D polygon graphics which tend to be unflattering on them in my opinion, when they've been able to make gorgeous looking 2D artwork since at least the 90's. Also, I feel a sudden urge to replay Wind Waker.
