Hey guys. Another Monday, another video of hyperbolic capitalism and Trump bashing in which he trots out bullshit and lies to make points.
The whining about being pandered to from a group of people who absolutely beg to be pandered to is kinda hilarious to me.

These are the same people who just a few years ago were going on and on about how corporations were not people, the same people who chanted that now want corporations to act like people with actual beliefs and concerns. A corporations concern is profit that's what it exists for. If you find a corporation out there supporting your political or cultural views you are being sold a product, in hopes you'll buy more products.

Video game related content starts seven minutes in and it's immediately the "crunch am bad" hot take.

Think I'll skip this one.

I did appreciate that he was able to see the "we don't like racism" social media posts by brands for what they are, right alongside the rainbow background logos of previous years. He even played that video of brands de-rainbowizing their logos on July 1st while clown world music plays.

That's kind of meaningless though when pretty much any move by anyone can and has been argued by him as just being pandering, or at least in some way cynical. Let's be honest, if some company he didn't like decided to not celebrate pride month he'd be more than willing to complain about how they're racist for doing that. You know, much like how he argues that companies should stop making constant sequels. Yet also argues against companies that actually hold off on releasing a new game in a series for a while and doesn't think they should be allowed to just sit on them.

Latest ep is pretty garbage. Funny intro when he was too fat to keepup with a BLM protest.


Its just his over reaching, I agreed with him quite abit about the BS "pride" flags but then he went into "Wahh these mega corps dont hire black CEOS!" which is really too stupid to follow because he has the broken SJW logic that he wants the amount of "people of colour" CEOs to match the exact number that is in the general population which is lunacy.

The biggest issue is that the way that Jim and his ilk talk we know for a fact that it will never be good enough.

Oh and he blames Capitalism for homophobia and racism. I shit you not (he refs Cornel West)

What is with Millennial internet celebrity pseudo-intellectuals who think they're "educators" constantly crying about the evils of capitalism and how capitalism is the source of all the ills (real or imagined) plaguing the Western world?
They're rich, sheltered, have no real life experience, and don't understand how the world works.
They're inspired by WWII and mainstream fiction like Star Wars where an objectively good resistance force battles an evil fascist empire.
They want to be heroes, but there's no Nazis to fight, so they invent them.

Its pretty funny to me how he is praising the pokemon go developer for bringing in a diversity auditing panel (among other things) when auditing panels such as for worker health and safety protections prettymuch do nothing and their reports are not actioned unless the people managing that area want them to be.

Furthermore, in medium to large corporations the people at the top dont even see the results, they get an aggregated 40 page report (that usually says 'need improvement, nuff said') at the end of the year which is tabled at an executive meeting along with 900 pages of similar shit which they affirm and move on. And that is for government mandated safety regulations.

Imagine what the HR and health and safety executive does when he also gets the non-legally required diversity oversight portfolio aswell. If your answer was "I'll give it to chairmans dropkick nephew I can't fire to keep him out of my hair for a few months" ding ding you win.

For a guy so skeptical about corporations its hilarious how little of their marketing budget a wiley company needs to spend to be the 2020 equivilent of the first company to promote gay marriage in his eyes.

I find it funny that Jim has such a perfect blend of ugly and boring opinions that we need to wait for someone to be willing to dive into his videos/twitter for hot-takes. At least MovieBob has insane yet interesting takes.

He's been talking about video games so little and repeating the same handful of talking points over and over that even I've struggled to keep writing my giant spergposts on each episode. It started to get uncomfortable having to reiterate my own thoughts and responses ad infinitum.

You could tell Jim really did used to love and care about video games, but I wouldn't be surprised if he hasn't played one himself in months now. And considering the problems coming out of the industry tend to be shit that doesn't gel with the woke brigade, like the Last of Us 2 bullshit, he's kind of stuck in between a rock and a hard place. But he's still gotta fill 20 minutes every Monday with something, so he just puts on a blindfold, spins around, and throws darts at a board.

Jim's way past $100k a year on Patreon donations alone. He's sitting pretty.

Jim would be seeing about 40% of what he makes taken from him in taxes and any insurance he has.

I felt Mafia III hit the perfect balance. The cop will chase if you hit them, another car while they are aware of you, or. A pedestrian, but if you want to drive through a park at 110MPH, go for it.
Once I realized that there was a speed limiter button for your car that automatically made it never go over the current speed limit I didn't have trouble anymore.

If Mafia 3 didn't have as much grinding as it did, it would have been a classic. The story and setting are so strong.

I did a second playthrough of 3 this past week to see what the other big choice at the ending does, and this time, having the DLC, I did the first three districts as required, then did all the DLC right away. Having all the extra things to do, the better vehicles and the reward weapons, it made the game a lot less grinds and a lot more fun. The weed farming removes the money pains from the early to mid sections of the game nicely, and taking down rackets and doing favours can be broken up with the bounty hunting and weed strain retrieval missions.

I do still feel that the game not having any kind of fast-travel is its biggest weakness. The first time you have to drive across a city that takes 20 minutes to traverse is impressive. Every time I had to do it after that just felt like a bullshit commute.

Did he? When did this happen, and why?
I should preface this with there is no HARD evidence of this but here is some observations:
  • his “wife“ hasn’t been on social media for while and no interactions between the two.
  • his wifes son 13 is years old. I highly doubt that they move cross country with him when he’s in the middle of school (and a pandemic)
  • He’s obviously living in an apartment/townhouse which is a downgrade from an actual house with a front yard and all that. Granted it’s a better location however when you’re thinking about kids it’s really not a big upgrade
  • Jim has no reason to move around except for his own personal comfort because he can do his job wherever he wants is in the world.
  • I have a sneaky suspicion that Justin is his room mate which would be weird that he has a roommate and a wife and a child.
  • Granted Jim doesn’t normally talk about his wife and outside life but he really hasn’t talked about it for such a long time.

You can almost assuredly completely reconstruct Jim's videos from his content five years ago. I'm even pretty sure Jim made this joke himself without realising the irony. The only new stuff is his descent into extreme politics (which is probably caused by BDS).
And in the end just going after the easy targets signals out to developers which bullshit practices they can freely do without fear of backlash by leftist goons.

In Jim last episode of "Corporations can literally do nothing right as long as they exist" reeeeeeeeee's at Activisions 4 Million dollars donation to woke charities because
"they don't pay tax on it and we technically paid for it because they stole the money from us buy selling us products".

Fuck me Jim, does this commie shit really get you more views? Maybe I am too old. I probs would of eatten up this shit when i was a student who had no fucking idea how the work.

Jim really should not spit out whatever corporations do to try and appease people like him. He makes it so that corporations literally could not do anything right except for if they were to shut their doors and re-distribute all the money they've made to their employees directly. Jim doesn't understand that corporations technically don't have to do anything to help all these woke charities but they do it by choice. They could be the real big bad evil corporations he thinks they are and just donate nothing. I feel like that might be the future where corporations will just stop trying and just donate less and less to work charities and rather put them donations towards things that would benefit them in the long run.
