    The Big Picture: Remembering the Real Jack Thompson

    You're right that Thompson wasn't a monster, just a run of the mill politician using the usual knee jerk reaction subjects to egg people onto his side. As for games related stuff specifically? The harassing or threatening you see from extreme vocal minority elements on both sides - that's...

    The Big Picture: The Fall of Kevin Smith

    Hipster? Really? The language alone tells me how out of touch with the generation you're talking about here, and the roots from which Smith himself came. It's painted all over this. You have these ideas of things so colored by the now, that if you ever had sight on that period in time, or that...

    The Big Picture: Link Be A Lady

    This just in, the Japanese make incredibly effeminate male characters. No, we don't want Link to be female. We want another Zelda game to actually star Zelda. Randomly gender flipping a character isn't a revolution or interesting, it's, "We can't be bothered to actually use a FEMALE character...

    Jimquisition: Diversity? LIEversity!

    I think there should be more playable female characters in games, but, really, most games I come across have characters so, "eh" that their gender and racial characteristics barely matter. In this light, I'd prefer customizable characters I can make to the gender and race that I prefer. Still...

    Jimquisition: The Trap Of Gamer Gratitude

    EA and several other mentioned companies out there have terrible practices, but, this episode outlines something even more . . . disgusting. The people that buy into it, the people that thank these companies for screwing them over and ask to be screwed over some more.

    Zero Punctuation: The Elder Scrolls Online - We Can MMO Too

    To think we could have had another single player Elder Scrolls game with the time, effort and money invested, rather than this nonsense MMO. I never asked for an Elder Scrolls MMO, or multiplayer, and every time in the past I've seen it mentioned on Bethesda's forums I've begged, literally...

    The Big Picture: The Other Guys - Lesser Known Toys from the 80's

    Inhumanoids and Blackstar were my thing back in the day. My Uncle loved recorded various sci-fi and fantasy shoes/movies and T.V., he was just into that stuff, and he'd send me (and my cousins) copies of the recordings. I watched the run of Inhumanoids and Blackstar over and over obsessively...

    Jimquisition: The Adblock Episode

    I have a case by case basis where ad block is concerned. I watch each show, and then, based on whether feel like that particular video has a message I want to support, or not, I let refresh the page with ad block turned off, or I don't. I cannot, however, know if a a particular show (not just...

    Jimquisition: Why So Serious?

    It's a bit ridiculous how hard lined various aspects of the gaming community can be, that "either it's 100% serious or it's malicious trolling!" mindset can be found in all walks of the community. Not just the consumers and fans, not just the media coverage of games, and not even just the...

    Movie Defense Force: The Chronicles of Riddick

    I like it when people point out that this film isn't that bad. I loved Pitch Black. I liked Dark Fury. Chronicles resulted in an explosion of maniacal giggles throughout its run time, and only in the best of ways. I love these movies. I love Vin Diesel in these moves. I wanted more of these...

    The Big Picture: Pink Is Not The Problem

    I have to agree with this one. Pink isn't bad. Pink is a color. There are men that like pink, would want to wear pink and only don't because of how society views the color and may react to them. Not just gay men. Gay men may, or may not, like pink. The same goes for bisexual men. However, a...

    Ryse: Son of Rome Review - Vengeance and Glory

    Having watched more than a couple people play this, and had my own hand at this . . . thing I couldn't possibly call a game with a straight face . . . I have no idea how you came to your conclusions. "The simple, yet always dynamic combat is how it really sinks its teeth into you."...

    Jimquisition: Integrity, Journalism, and Free PS4s

    Would having to buy systems and games yourself really ruin you? Let's take a step back and look at some of the independent reviewers out there. They don't get free systems. They don't get free games. They barely get to get in and talk to the developers, and publishers, if they get to get in...

    Escape to the Movies: Man of Tai Chi

    I was sold at "Finish Him" . . . seriously, the Mortal Kombat music just erupted from some dormant memory cage in my brain the second I heard that. No way am I not going to see this.

    The Most Dangerous Woman in Videogames - Anita Sarkeesian

    Why are you still giving this woman attention? Give some women and actual feminists, actually interesting in gaming this sort of attention. This woman is clearly only out for herself, to make herself money, and is using a guise of feminism to do it, threaded with obvious goads to cause knee jerk...
