    Jimquisition: Piracy Episode One - Copyright

    And maybe game creators have more options now, but they didn't back in 2004 when Metal Arms came out.

    Jimquisition: Piracy Episode One - Copyright

    He wasn't paid for it. You see, with books, which I write, you don't have to give up your IP in order to get your work published. Not so with video game publishers. That's the entry fee. You're actually paying them, and the price is the right to your own idea. You HAVE to give up your idea If...

    Jimquisition: Piracy Episode One - Copyright

    THANK YOU JIM! Metal Arms is my all time favorite game ever made, and yes, it was destroyed because of copyright. What's more: I've actually emailed Steve Ranck to tell him my love of Metal Arms. Let me post the actual exchange I had with him. Take a look escapists! Dear Steve Ranck...

    Zero Punctuation: Batman: Arkham City

    Also, I totally bought YOUR book used. How do you like them apples? I like them FINE.

    Zero Punctuation: Batman: Arkham City

    Aww... I thought Yahtzee was just a typical everyman like us (who happens to have is own internet show) but he's just an aristocratic snotty highbrow like the rest of the industry, you know, with the whole "you must buy games new" thing. Not everyone is like you, Yahtzee. Some of us can't...

    Who would you turn gay for?

    Anderson Cooper. There's a reason I'm basing a video game off him.

    Jimquisition: The Past Is Not The Future

    Wow, I had no idea Nintendo was faring so poorly. I heard about their plummeting stock at their announcement of the Wii II, but I thought that would just be a small speed bump. I suppose they brought this on themselves. "The past is not the future" could very well apply to Nintendo itself...

    Escape to the Movies: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

    Scalia already lost all his cool points (and then some) for throwing the Wal-mart women's case out. Now things are gonna be a whole lot worse for a lot of people working for companies as large as Wal-mart for a very long time... all because of him and the other justices.

    Zero Punctuation: Duke Nukem Forever (for real this time)

    'Twas magic, sir. Not as frothing-at-the-mouth as I thought it would be.

    The most intense level you have ever played

    Hmm... the final boss battle of Metal Arms: Glitch in the System. Now THAT was an endgame. It was the sort of battle you can only win when you've used all your healing items, spent all your ammo, and literally have to slap the last bit of health bar off the boss, which is probably what makes it...

    Zero Punctuation: Fable 3

    So... is anyone going to ask whether Yahtzee is okay after the Brisbane floods? I'm pretty sure he made that video BEFORE the skies opened and god's disapproval rained upon Australia. I'm pretty sure he's fine, though. Yahtzee Croshaw is eternal. Even nature can't harm him. As long as he's...

    Zero Punctuation: Epic Mickey

    Unlike the game, this video was epic. I especially liked "Dull round cake in the middle of something." This game was so BORING. The most BORING BORING thing in the history of BORING BORING thigns. Also: WE FINALLY HAD AN IMP HERO!

    Rebecca Mayes Muses: Starcraft 2

    THAT WAS AMAZING. I'm astonished. I've got a new favorite!

    Rebecca Mayes Muses: Halo Reach

    I loved the song. Anything that makes me think about things more than I normally would is good in my books. I don't quite feel the same about the slideshow-style presentation, though. I liked the intermittent graphics and such, but it still doesn't resonate quite so well as changing setpieces...

    Zero Punctuation: Shadow of the Colossus

    RAWR I hate those full page ad things. Can't I watch a video without clogging my RAM's arteries and being forcibly distracted by the latest Stupid RPG 6? Anyway, this was one of his best ones for a long time. But he seems to have trouble ending his videos lately. "DAMN DAMN DAMN GOOD" didn't...
