Ha that smug little grin from Jim at the end melts the heart. Both very well done.

Yeah, I think I'll be sticking with my PC too. Not that resolution is a big concern for me anyway.

Honestly, I'm yet to see a game where the difference between 720 and 1080 is sufficient for me to care. On the plus side, at least I can run with my current PC for a while....

Yes that's it! I shall be a mighty PC gamer and never again dismay at poor quality textures! I'll jut load up the trusty laptop and lose myself in a sea of pixels, right after I turn the graphics settings down low enough for it to actually run that is.

Was Yahtzee's poem about how little stabbing and stabbing and stabbing and stabbing there is in Assassin's Creed these days?

Luckily I couldn't care less about the difference between 720p and 1080p. Then again I sincerely hope that people are arguing on the principal and not what the end result is.

Well Jim, I guess you have a point. As a PC owner, you really do need[sub](and I guess can get)[/sub] more than 1080p.

Which makes sense. After all, you need all that power to play Doom all day.

Both good offerings this week, gentleman. Though I must confess Yahtzee's had me roaring in laughter.

Really liked Yahtzee's poem. I can't wait for his take on ACIV. Personally I'm having a lot of fun with it now, but it's not really feeling like an Assasin's Creed game.

Wow, jim's was actually kinda mature... but really, where were the dick jokes, innuendo, and references to sodomy? Jim, I was counting on you!

I declare this round a draw. Though both offerings were fucking excellent today. ... Now back to NOT stabbing and stabbing and stabbing all day.

Jimquisition has changed so much! It was still good back then, but the new episodes seem much more professionally done. I can't believe we lived in a world where Jimquisition did not have a Willem Defoe miniature co-host. This video reminded me that I wanted to play E.Y.E Divine Cybermancy, time to put this on my steam wishlist so i don't forget again.

Great with all the stabbin'!
I quickly caught on there was one less each time, but you still wrapped it up more elegantly -and poignantly- than I expected!

Also a good one for Jim. Indeed, I play Path of Exile and Diablo 3 in 2560x1600, even with an extremely modest 2 year old then $130 GPU. Still very happy with my monitor :D

I give the win to Yahtzee because I was howling with laughter at his towel as a hood and how often he said "stabbing". I will defend the series by saying they have more fun ways to kill besides stabbing, and they try to recreate how the people lived in the time each game is set, to give a more immersive experience. I thought Yahtzee would appreciate Ubisoft's willingness to experiment.

It is pretty shocking that 1080p hasn't become the standard. I've had it for years on my PC, so I don't really understand why this is so hard for consoles to do. I get that 60 fps is a bit more of a struggle (But just as important, as far as I'm concerned), but if I'm paying 400 bucks, something that goes without saying on phones and tablets shouldn't really be something that needs to be argued for, especially on a "next gen" platform.
