Jimquisition "Garme Jurrnalizm!"

Recommended Posts

Fuck Konami

I don't really know what else to say at that point, company treats it's loved franchaises like shit, it treats gamers, who give them the money, like shit and it treats it's employees like shit. It's easy to see why Kojima decided to leave this sinking ship of a Triple-A company.

Fee 2 Pay

With the imminent launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, a fresh outrage has spawned over its inclusion of microtransactions. I love outrages about microtransactions, so much so that I coined the phrase "Fee To Pay" years ago. 

Here we are again - the practice of "Fee To Pay" is more common, but no less distasteful. Let's revisit the stupid world of "feemium" games, where you gotta pay... if you wanna pay.

 

 

"but most importantly, FucKonami" lol!

Jim is also doing a livestream; Zombi Livesquirt right now.

Oh my, I'm not sure what to make of this:

Is the inappropriate saccharine tone meant to contrast the the horror or is this game really... this?

And, surprisingly [citation needed], this happened after just minutes:

SCEA? B-but I thought Nintendo was the only one of the Big 3 that did this!!11

But seriousy, outstanding video as always, Jim. I know a reviewers job is to review a game, but they should not be pressured under the game company themselves on what they can play.

He's also posted a stopgap video of sorts, detailing his thoughts on the "tiered" preorder system that the new Deus Ex game is trying to pull. 

 

 

Basically, if the current preorder culture is some twisted Greymon, then this new system is like that Greymon dark-digivolving into SkullGreymon.

Only thing I'm gonna be pre-ordering anytime soon is the guaranteed Kingdom Hearts 3 collectors edition/special edition when it's announced. But that's only because I'm a big KH fan. If the collectors/special edition didn't exist, unless there's a super cool piece of merch that comes with the standard, I ain't Pre-ordering.

The pre-order scheme for Deux Ex is hilarious. They're literally holding the release date hostage until enough people pre-order. That's not even touching on the rest of the tiers.

It's a shame since the actual game looks great. I sincerely hope Square doesn't pull this kind of stunt with Kingdom Hearts III and FFXV, and hell, with any of their future games.

I still don't really get how people can buy into this kind of stuff so insistently, especially in the case of Arkham and Deus Ex which will inevitably have Complete editions launched sometime later anyway.

...I just now realized how shitty it is that publishers are literally selling off complete versions of games as though it's supposed to be a bonus as opposed to well, releasing a game completely finished.

Really, pre-orders I find only justifiable to do if there's some sort of cool physical merchandise or something like that. Like a limited poster, or a small plush, or toy, or case, etc.

 

Now if it's something lame like, say Kingdom Hearts 2.5's pre-order bonus(a pin), then lol forget that. (Luckily I got the collectors edition which had all the cool shizz)

The last game I pre-ordered was Smash Bros 3DS, ONLY cause stock was running out fast for weeks.
