I watched this episode on a whim because I thought, "I'll give him another chance". Seems a wasted effort or bad timing =D
Least you didn't have your annoying piano music.

Hmmm, yes, good point, but does this value with dinosaurs over, say, the more conventional and reasonable Ninjas and/or Pirates undermine the very point of including anachronistic monsters in games today as neither humans nor dinosaurs have ever lived in coinciding eras?

At least give us some decent episodes before you pull this kind of thing off. Took Yahtzee quite a few episodes before he gave us an April Fools prank.

And at least that was in April.

OT: I guess this is Jim's way of saying "I'm at E3,so nothing new for you!" But seeing as E3 ended quite a while ago,he may just be the balliest ************ on The Escapist. Considering his status with us and the fact that most people on the Escapist just didn't like him. Then he pulls this out of the blue further screwing himself over in the eyes of the viewers.

This is currently my favorite episode of the Jimquisition.
mine too, him not saying a damn thing is exactly what I was looking for. OHw ait... I could just not watch at all and get that.

You could have gone in and just said, "fuck E3" and left, and I would have been more entertained.

That was actually kind of funny, in a very irritating way. I was worried for a sec though because when I saw that the video was going to be about e3, I thought he was stealing Yahtzee's job at tearing apart hype.

Eh, I'm not going to complain because I'm a firm believer in that we as viewers shouldn't ***** about the fact that vloggers can get some days off now and then. He won't probably get paid for this, we all can wait for another week. Big deal.

I'm also willing to let this one slide when taking into account that The Jimquisition has really improved in the last couple or three episodes. I'm not a Destructoid regular so this is pretty much all contact I've had with Jim in my whole life. It's been nice to see him get up to speed and confortable with his vlog, and I expect many great things to come.

I feel compelled to pull up the Doraleous And Associates' last PSA, but I guess there's no need for it.

Hmm. Well, that was a great way to waste a minute, listening to that annoyingly grating intro with the twitch inducing misspellings. Usually it's bearable for the points he occasionally makes. Today? Nope. Thanks for that.

Taken from the forum rules

Regardless of what some of our content creators may say, do or provoke within their videos or articles, this does not give members the ability to act in the same way. They are entertainers and if they brought their language or flaming into the forums, they would be held accountable, just as any other forum member of The Escapist would be
So as long as they keep it in the video's or articles all is good for them.

Haha... i actually laughed at that, wasn't expecting it(since I don't pay attention to the length of videos).

Really though he has been getting better and better. I guess I'm finally getting used to his humor. At first I couldn't stand him but last few episodes I've actually enjoyed... and I was going to stop watching after the first episode.

Well considering Jim isn't under an Escapist Contract, and the majority of his stuff is over at Destructoid I don't think it matters. And he was at E3 the last week, cut him a break.

Fingers crossed, I do like me some l-l-l-lollipop. I am assuming this is a reference to the Beiber/Usher duet. I am afraid for better or worse I have never heard the song (I heard one Beiber song on youtube out of curiosity and in an endevour to have a fuller understanding of pop music). Your knowledge of Beiber clearly supersedes mine and for that I salute you!

You know I decided to give this guy another shot. So I pulled up this episode. And I have to say that this is the best episode he has ever had. I'm definitely not going to go back to watching his stuff, but out of all of the episodes I have seen this has to be my favorite.

I was thinking that too. I really like his theme song. Also he still needs to be yelling at a costar(s). Maybe a bunch of puppies.

Why... why is Jim still here? There are many regular posters here who have/do/could contribute more than this show does. I've made my opinons about Mr. Sterling known before (and been suspended for them) so im not going to go into it again lest i anger the mighty, omnipotent forum gerbels but hes cut out the middle man here and actually stopped pretending he has something to contribute.

I emplore you Escapist. Get rid of this show, it is unfathomably bad.

Well that didn't make me laugh at all, and it had nothing at all to contribute to the gaming community's knowledge base.

Which means that the only thing different about this Jimquisition was it's episode length.

They're getting shorter! Keep it up Jim!

Huh. OK... Why even put this up?

Still, taking it seriously for a moment, what is this video showing exactly?

Did he have a power cut while trying to film it?

Given that the camera didn't cut out, that seems odd at first, but then I'm reminded that nearly all consumer video cameras (and quite a few professional ones) are battery operated.

So... Giving him the benefit of the doubt, I can only assume there was a power cut that lasted long enough for him to miss his video deadline.

Except... He still found the time to edit that clip together. Eh. Whatever.

Lucky for him, a lot of us find him entertaining. He makes good points, even if his humor can be a bit dry. Overall a good show.

Why all the hate? If you don't like him fine, but come to the comments section episode after episode and talk smack about the guy. Is that what it takes to make you feel good about yourself, putting down someone who is putting in the work to create something?

Because showing your distaste for a show is very bad to do. BAD OPINION HAVERS! SHAME ON YOU! How dare you share your opinion on an opinion website. How dare you share your thoughts, telling the site owners that you don't enjoy a show on their site. Such a mean thing to do.

Y'know, I was initially going to complain about the lack of... "content", I suppose. But then I remembered that since I don't care for his opinion anyway, I realized that there was nothing wrong with this video after all.

Still didn't make me laugh, though.

Wow, he's even fatter than I thought. Seriously, I've never been to America, but I've never seen a guy so fat with my own eyes. That's not even funny, this man will be dead in a decade.
Isn't he English?

.......
And really he ain't that fat, even? He's wearing a thick trench coat.

And as if being fat is a bad thing. How is "you're fat" honestly an insult. You're a disgusting human being if you pull that out to demean another person.

I've had time to mull the episode over in my giant brain, and either this was a very deep, very clever social satire on how nobody won E3, or he was just being 'ironic' again.

Well, i was expecting to see a power outage, but didn't really expect him to stop doing his show. Thought it would just be a black screen, or a darkened room.
Silly old stoopid me.

Why did The Escapist put this up? I am disappoint.
Maybe he is under contract to produce a video each week regardless of the quality. But, he could of redone the vid a few hours later or the next day. Not like the powercut lasted the whole week.

He does indeed need to produce a video, but did the Escapist need to show us this? I'd have thrown it out and asked for something worth putting up. A few seconds of video isn't up to the the Escapist standard, in my opinion.

The only thing funnier than this show, is watching just how pissed some people can get.

Im not a fan of the whole "don't like, dont watch" stigma, but really, if you don't like the show, just don't watch it.

That way, the show will get less hits and then maybe, in due time, its filthy existence will be forever gone from your glorious shrine of ultra awesome serious business!

As for me, I'll continue to enjoy the phenomenon that is Jim Sterling.

He hasn't been doing this long enough (on the Escapist), but everyone has to have their troll episode. MovieBob had is Mario review, and Yahtzee his DNF review.

Bah, was hoping for an actual episode. Oh well, the Duke Nukem review will have to suffice.
That was brutal. I thought it was going to suck based on the demo, but he makes it sound like an abomination. And humor so crude that even Jim doesn't chuckle? That has to be really bad.
OP: To everyone saying that he hasn't done enough videos to pull this: he has been doing these for a while. Only a handful on The Escapist, however.

I tought this was funny, and I get the feeling he is disappointed. But at the same time this is really frustrating.

Just my humble opinion tough...

By the way, I've never tought I'd speak longer in a post than the guy posting the video.

Ps: I've seen a lot of suspended posts in here, and i hope I'm not next for saying this, but: I really understand users frustration. I feel kinda of cheated.

"I'm not a fan of rice, but really you should just eat rice."

What?

The problem with assuming something that is crappy will go away if you stop watching is that often it's popular enough that this will not happen. If Jim reserves the right to badmouth games and whatever else he likes (and he should have that right), then so should we be able to say what we want about his poor quality, unfunny jokes and lazy videos, like this one.

I find it hilarious people are getting banned for posting basically what Jim said. So what The Escapist is telling me, is that if Jim had WRITTEN his response, you all would have modded him for Low Content Posting. Right? Good to know the rules work the same for everyone.

Well played troll. I have no problem with people making their opinions heard. I am not really a huge fan of the show myself.

I am talking about the people lobbing personal insults at the guy, people making posts that would otherwise get them suspended from posting if it was about another forum member.

Yeah some people go to far. But the guy is a loud-mouth jerk who makes a living by pissing on things. I'm sure he can take the abuse, if not then he should not be in this line of work.

How is that justifying them? I'm saying that Jim is a big boy and can take care of himself. I specifically said, they go to far, that isn't justifying but condemning. I then go on to say that Jim can handle himself. Hence the "I'm sure he can take the abuse."

I found this episode to be the best yet.

I think it's thanks to the proportion of parts where we don't get to see/hear Jim to the parts that we do.

I wonder if when Jim published this episode he was sort of aiming for/expecting people to say "best episode of Jimquistion yet"?
(I even wrote this text before reading any of the comments... and sure enough :)

Because an episode like this seems to invite just such comments, especially with a show that seems to have opinions quite divided...

Yep, I agree completely. Like I said, I too find the "don't like, don't watch" argument to be pretty weak, but I can't for the life of me see what else you "haters" could do to make Jim go away. Obviously your badmouthing doesn't work because he's still here, after 7 episodes.

But If you don't like his videos, then by all means keep on doing what you do. I won't mind. Hell, I didn't like this episode either, just like I didn't like Yathzee's "Holiday 2009" video.

Sure everyone needs a vacation once in a while or maybe they have other things to attend to. Therefore a better solution would have been to announce at the end of the previous video that there won't be a video next week because of so and so. I reckon that Jim should have done the same thing.

All's been said that has been said? So awesome it rendered Jim Speechless? He quit? Here's hoping.
What this guy said. Also, I sincerely hope he's not getting paid for this episode, considering that it's even more insipid and insulting than his usual manure, and that is really saying something.
You know what? The tagline for Jimquisition fits. "Get angry". I do get angry, Jim. Angry because you, despite having nothing worthwhile to contribute to the escapist, still have a prime spot that probably pays really well. Which is a shame, since you use it to make unfunny jokes, when there could be people with intelligent points to make and maybe an ounce of charisma. I would rather have back "I hit it with my axe" or "Doraleous and associates", hell, even "Game Dogs" would be far preferable to this tripe. So Jim, please go back to Destructiod and leave us the fuck alone. You add nothing and are not pleasant nor funny. I feel ashamed that I even gave you this one view.
Edit: You know what you remind me of, Jim? Duke Nukem Forever. Something that thinks it's cooler than it is, preoccupied with itself, full of callous and unfunny 'jokes', not very visually appealing, unfocused and shallow.

If you turn your volume up really loud you can hear him ask, "Really?"

I laughed pretty hard at this episode. The lack of seriousness in this episode went along nicely with his message from his previous episode.

The joke was ruined once i saw the length of the video. I wish i could come to my job and say 'really?' and then go home, it would still take more effort than he put in making this thing.

Have to love that almost a third of the comments have been warned about low content posts on a low content video.

OT: seems a bit lazy, if he didn't have anything to say he could have just put out a message saying he was busy at E3 and nobody would mind. Trying to make a joke with a 30 second video just fell flat. If he was trying to pull a prank like yahtzee he should have waited a while, he's new and not that popular whereas yahtzee is probably the reason the vast majority of people came to this site.

I think this series weakens the standing of The Escapist with every further episode made. Really - this is nothing comparable to Zero Punctuation, Extra Credits, everything by Movie Bob etc. It just has got no intelectual or humorous value - at all! Even if it is understood as satire it's so very plain, yet overdone. This episode especially shows HOW uncreative Jim is, because stuff like this has been done so often up to now: overdone as I said.

I'm just stating my opinion, not demanding to end this, but warmly recommending to do so or have a drastic change of the concept for the sake of the quality of this site... which i love... except for Jimquisition...

I know every relationship has it's dark sides, but this one is nearly ... oversized.
In a black coat.




At least bring back Lisa.

I was given a warning for a low content post in response to this video. When I disputed the ironic punishment of my low content post to this low content video, I was told that I should report the post that I felt was low content. Really, Escapist? I urge anyone else who thinks this video was low content to report it as well, as the Escapist will not stand for this sort of thing!

Seriously, WTF?
