I think he fails to see that when people are watching video game content is to escape politics, and when people want political content, they dont want it from a Divine impersonator (with less than an ounce of the talent he had) who is obssesed with toys and cartoons.
Also, the excess of stock footage is unbearable, is it so hard to record some footage of whatever he is playing and using it? That would be still very lazy, but better than what he is doing.

Smart of him to treat his co-workers as such, especially given what he does and the dumb dickheads he might be working with (such ol' Jimbo here).
'Might' be dickheads? Who were his coworkers over the years? His boss through much of his run was either Russ 'Eagle Semen' Pitts or Russ's wife, and other Escapist contributors that come to mind are Jim, MovieBob, Rebecca Maes (or whatever her name was - the one that made a video about how she wanted to kill Yahtzee), the Extra Credits loons, the "Pornstars play D&D" people (because fully-clothed pornstars doing stuff is somehow more interesting than, say, fully-clothed actuaries doing stuff), a couple of webcomic artists, that group who did that grimdark Nintendo parody, the chick from All That...

Oh, and Gavin 'Miracle of Sound' Dunne. I'm still subbed to him on Youtube. He seems OK.

Obese wrestlers who have zero athletic ability are simply sideshows, they're close to the last of the physical freaks that we can point and laugh at in public for cash. Jim going full on bearded lady on top of that is just a cherry on top of the sundae. I sincerely hope anyone who loved Jim stopped paying attention to him or died before 2019
The problem is I don't even find Jim's wrestling schtick worth laughing at, I think he's just incredibly cringe and annoying. I don't know much about pro wrestling so the only fat kind-of wrestler I'm aware of is Paul Bearer because I love his name, but he seems like a fun character I'd like to watch.

If Jim appeared on my TV I'd change the channel.

WWE doesn't employ those types, even the fat guys they have are either athletic (like Yokozuna) or exceptionally tall (like King Mabel). The shitty wrestling organizations are the ones that hire the freakshows... midgets, fatsos, bearded ladies, etc. Basically anything to get anyone to watch, which is why Jim is currently doing this wrestling stuff. I guess the cringe part is that he takes it seriously and doesn't realize he's basically just a freak that's funny to watch attempt to move around.

Gavin's stayed pretty chill. He's got political opinions but he's not at all keen about smearing them all over his works, he dropped outta jims podcast right around when it started really losing it veneer of "talking about videogames" and just became a salty mess, and he's content to enjoy games and make things about games without blaming all the worlds ills on games.

Jim could have learned so much from him, but alas, cows gonna cow.

I hadn't actually SEEN any of Jimbo's stuff since about 2 years ago, but I watched some of his "Under 900k subscribers special" and goddamn...

He's not only not putting out any entertaining content, he's actually BECOME what he used to mock.

Constantly sperging about politics, blaming his subscriber loss on "Transphobes" instead of quality, and creating drama to disguise as content were all things he rightfully criticized shitty devs for.

And now they're all his signature moves. But don't call him out on it or you're a nazi transphobe and his echo chamber will rush to his defense.

He's gone full woke and I'm waiting for the inevitable broke now. I also like how he switched from "Big companies bad" to "Capitalism bad".

Quite.

If Angry Joe is a stage III case of enwokenment syndrome, then Jim is a chronic stage VI with added troon complications.

You know what? This has been a long time coming. We now have two dead vidya gaming lolcow. John being dead for a couple years now and Jim being dead with Stephanie crawling out of his carcass. He won't even do video games anymore right? So what I'm saying is...


Beloved Kiwis, we have gathered here today to bury Jim Sterling's bloated corpse. In the presence of the internet, God, and the Bear we intern the spirit of Jim Sterling into eternal Steam Greenlight section.

The video is about how corporations are insincere about their participation in LGBTQ Pride month. Jim talks about Disney removing scenes involving gay characters in movies released in China, Russia, and any other country they deem it necessary to. Warner Bros had an event centered around on beating Poison Ivy, a character that is bisexual in the comics as well in InJustice 2, the game that was being used for this event. He said Warner Bros should hire LGBTQ Consultants for stuff like this, and that it shows how out of touch cis straight can be with this kind of stuff. He also says that J.K. Rowling is Transphobic and brings up laws being passed that hurt trans youth, and also that hate crimes happening to gay people. The video was over the place and barely had anything to do with Video Games. It was more about Corporations being insincere about LGBTQ month than it was about the Poison Ivy Event. Also Jim talks about how he's wrestling on Enjoy Wrestling, and also Ryse Returns which will be hosted on his Twitch channel.

Which is something everyone knows who's watching Jims videos.
It's gone to the point of pure circlejerking. He used to work hard on his own experiences and views. But now its just copypasting headlines.

I watched him as he got trolled by Alien Colonial Marines and ditched out hard to Pitchford, when he left the Escapists, when he got sued, in depth issues with video games.
Where's the big coverage on the Apple vs Epic lawsuit, invite a gamer lawyer and make a co-hosted video.

Its done and over.

Jimbo call me when you give a fuck. So will I then.

Jim: We just want to have representation in art and be treated like everybody else.
Corporation: Okay. Here’s a bisexual character that we’re putting in a game in which everyone gets the shit beaten out of them.
Jim: You fucking corporate cunts!

Also, one of the most tedious things is someone waving away an argument with “I can’t believe you’d say that during Pride month!”

Jim: "Queer people are discriminated against and struggle to find job opportunities in the work place."

There's discrimination, and then there's not showing up to a job interview in a hand-me-down pantsuit reeking of lubricant and BO.

If you didn't wear your fervant love of buttsex on your sleeve, more job offers would come your way. You only have to turn the degeneracy off for a few hours, fucking hell.

Wait, the "queer" character I saw all those headlines about is Poison Ivy? While I'm not up on my Injustice 2 lore, Poison Ivy's generally all about control, and not just plants. She uses poisons and pheromones to control the minds of humans, a species she generally contemns, using and abusing as she sees fit. She's the textbook example of non-consent with a strong sexual aspect. Some of her incarnations are so toxic that merely kissing her is fatal and she shows a preference to victimizing people that way, sexualizing the act of murder.

Every last one of those headlines could have been "WB has an event where you beat up a serial rapist" and been just as accurate. Typical media clickbait and outrage farming.

This is all about as surprising as a sunrise. Corporations insincerely pander to a demographic, the demographic thinks it's not enough pandering and lashes back at the corporations.

It's a dance as old as time itself.

Poison Ivy has been depicted as being in a relationship with Harley Quinn more than a few times, so clearly she's a shining beacon of LBGT representation. Ignoring the fact both women are fucking psychos who are as likely to live happy productive lives as they are to plot to murder thousands of people, depending on the writer.

Note: Poison Ivy is an abuser. Harley Quinn is an abuse victim whose main personality trait these days is having left that abusive relationship with the Joker. It's like DC is ironically aware that abuse victims often bounce between abusers.

So it's the usual Jim Sterling video - an actual point (just look at the lack of rainbow flags for Bethesda Middle East's Twitter) buried in his usual whining and histrionics that he'll be murdereed every time he leaves the house.

The longer this arc drags on and the more schizophrenic Jim's videos become, I just keep returning to the question: Who does he think his audience is?

Does he really think the lion's share of those 900k+ who subscribed to him wanted to see a man in a wig sperg out about shit that, at best, is only tangentially related to the field Jim made his name in?

Also, well done Jim for recognising corporations paying lip service to Pride is purely performative. You're about half a decade late to that revelation, at least, but better late than never, I guess?

Imagine my shock that a troon would idolise a toxic lesbian relationship.
