You know the hilarious part? I am on a few media PR mailing lists and I had beta demo builds for a good chunk of all the indie games showed off at E3 as a result. Now, I work as a freelancer in the industry, so keeping up on what is coming out and what trends it might set, as well as what ideas someone might want to see a good version of is part of my job, I need to learn about the design of the hot next thing so I can emulate it for the next guy who wants to capitalize on the trend. Jim, assuming he isn't deemed as a danger to every indie dev in the universe to draw his attention due to how bad his PR can be, could've been ready to say that "Hey, so I got to try demos of these games shown off at E3, and these are pretty good, anyhow here is a quick list of some stand out games to keep an eye on" and he'd have done more than he did as a "game journalist".
Yep, George "SuperBunnyHop" Weidman does a yearly video where he talks about total unknown indies that come into inbox.


They're frankly oddball little games that probably just get played by the creators and the friends in their social circle. But an actual game journalist like George takes the time to tinker with them and talk about them because he loves video games and is interested in oddball titles. It helps his channel because viewers like me enjoy hearing about these little games and it helps the developers get much needed attention.

Jim Sterling hates video games, he's honest with that. He can't be asked more than to just give some positive praise to an acclaimed game like Plague Tale. He's just a lazy fuck. With his huge influence I'm sure the devs who made that Penguin Skateboarding game would send him an alpha to the game assuming they haven't already. But that would require Jim to actually play the game when instead he can just lazily prattle on about how cute the game is. Which is the kind of game journalism my mother could do.

Even when Jim was a real journalist he was profoundly lazy. He'll take credit for the cult following Deadly Premonition has, but if you look at that old review you'll know he was just ironically mocking it calling it a "trainwreck."

He's a hack that fell ass backwards into success. He has this huge hateboner for Ubisoft but he can't even try to make contact with the people making these allegations like Jason Schierer made a career out of.

A series of unconnected statements in fat james' latest video:

"I am wasting my life"
"I hate video games and everyone involved with them"
"Everyone in video games is fine with everything I've been complaining about for 10 years"
"Everyone wants me to shut up about video games already"

He almost gets there. He almost connects the dots. So fucking close that he should be able to taste it

I can’t believe Jim (more like Tim amirite) made a whole video just to talk about how stunning and brave he is for NOT going to E3.

I was skipping through randomly as that’s the only way I can watch nujim videos and every single time it lands on stock footage of an attractive girl or a female 90s cartoon character.




I couldn’t watch the whole thing And disliked the video and then attempt to let the YouTube algorithm know I don’t want to see this anymore.

Bear in mind that Bernard Cordier is a psychiatrist with a conflict of interest. I'm extremely skeptical of his reported 10%. In fact, I don't buy it. The subject of transgenderism is a veritable smorgasbord of disinformation and lies. Never forget John Mooney.
According to the provided translation, I assume 10% is only these, who appear mentally unwell from the get-go.

That is how it always is. You ever wonder why TTRPGs are going to shit? Because they kicked out everyone who knows what makes a good game out and instead they have people who write shit like this into their rulebooks. Then all those people they drove out go off and write popular sets of homebrew that everyone copies and pretends they totally came from someone else who is less "problematic".
It's not unique to tabletop games, either. Comics, movies, TV, video games, music...anywhere you let these people in you will immediately see the quality take a fucking nosedive because they are 100% pure uncut diversity hires with no interest beyond virtue signalling.

It's got to the point where I can't watch western TV any more, because I know the odds of me making it through a show without being lectured on misogyny, or white supremacy or transphobia is slim to none. I just watch Asian shit instead and it's so much better because there is zero idpol garbage to be found; just good stories and fun characters.

On the plus side, I'm kind of glad the old institutions like Marvel and DC are crumbling because they've been creatively bankrupt for years anyway. Same with most western game devs; all the interesting shit is happening in the indie scene or coming out of Japan now.

ETA: Didn't realise the new JQ was already up; so brave of Jim to take the controversial stance that E3 is just a glorified trailer park with PR interludes. This is the hard-hitting journalism I'm looking for.

Personally I enjoyed E3, because I approached it the same way I always do: Watch the livestreams archives and skip through the shit I don't care about.

Bernard Cordier is very often decried as a transphobe because unlike that other guy you spoke of, he does believe in medicalising the condition and weeding out the people who are likely to regret their transition, and is in fact is responsible for said medicalisation in France, so I think the accusation is a bit far-fetched since, if anything, his job (And stance on the matter) depends on there being people to weed out.

Also the case of John Money is almost always used in bad faith; Look up what he actually did, his experiment (Raising a boy as a girl - though he definitely did other f#cked up sh#t along the way) was meant to prove that gender was learned and not innate, i.e the complete opposite of the current understanding of transgender people - that they are people born with an innate sense of their gender in opposition to their sex.

whats up with so many cut to good looking women on jim's latest video... especially when he says "i"... watch out for some serious plastic surgery work in few years folks.
Null brought this up in a stream recently, reckons it's a psyop to try and force his viewers to associate Jim with woman-ness.

Ever since he pointed it out I keep noticing it too, but it's not gonna work Jim. You will always be a gross fat dude, no matter how many Party City wigs you buy.

You don't know much about Wrestling then. The indie scene is overrun with SJWs. Jim Cornette got fired for making a Fried Chicken joke on commentary for NWA Power. AEW are run by reddit smarks and they let their 6 foot tranny batter tiny japanese women for woke points. Even WWE got into it all with the exceptionally hollow "Women's Revolution" where they pretended mediocre and boring glamour models like Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch were now hardcore shooters on par with Steve Austin. That was every bit as forced as it sounds. And for the most part, the ever shrinking demographic of wrestling fans is just smarks who want to be told how great and smart they are for "knowing the business", and often that leaks into people who also want to show off how much a progressive intellectual they are. It's cancer ridden and the entire industry will be dead within the next 5 years. Especially if the rumours Vince is selling the WWE are true.
Fuck really? I haven't followed wrestling that closely since CM Punk left, and just kinda assumed a community that worshipped the "problematic" attitude era would be able to resist the incoming troon and sjw menace. if wrestling has been lost to the sjw's, literally what's left? anything nerds like is full of woke tards and troons grooming now :(

A person who didn’t have a bunch of mental illnesses could have taken this premise, about how an act of passion can become an act of obligation, and how it can be hard to return to the former after seeing how the sausage is made for so long, and make a compelling video about it. But with Jim we get this instead.
He really thinks hearing about how you didn't do your job is some form of rebellion. Just another reason for him to be lazy at this point.

He probably does choose women purposefully (And pretty understandably, all things considered) but I think the accusation of it being a psy-op about beautiful women is a bit far-fetched given the kind of people who make it into stock footage are good-looking as a rule of thumb. He'd pretty much have to go out of his way to find footage of "ugly" women in those; This is one of those cases where Occam's Razor should be applied before anything else.

As to facial feminisation surgery, honestly, I think that as things stand, it's not in his plans. My reasoning is that if he truly wanted to look like a woman (And by that I mean a woman, not a very obviously trans' woman, which are two different goals entirely), let alone a beautiful woman, he'd start by trimming his eyebrows, getting his beard laser-ed, and perhaps losing weight (But arguably being a fat slob helps passing because who the f#ck can really differentiate fat female slobs from fat male slobs).

If he had problems with the way he looks to the extent of seeking expensive and fairly heavy surgery, there would be things he'd already be doing against it, yet he isn't.

Totalbiscuit must be kicking and screaming in his coffin, desperate to get out and kick Jim's ass for essentially larping as a journo at this point. But at the same time, would TB reaching this point were he still alive too? Or would he realized it's dead and buried and he should move on, unlike Jim, who at this point as AngryTreeRat best put it:
They are incapable of growth, of joys, of anger, of anything other than being empty. All they are capable of is being mocked.

Troons would do well to study the adage 'you catch more flies with honey than vinegar'.
Assuming that the troon movement exists to actually benefit troons rather than to provide:
  1. A politically-correct avenue for groomers to shape primary education curricula with "age is just a number!"
  2. An excuse for otherwise-basic straight upper-middle-class white chicks to arbitrarily claim oppression
  3. A funnel for money and votes to pols on either side - "They're driving children to suicide" vs "They're mutilating children"
  4. Another justification for corporate Diversity Officers to exist
  5. Additional data points for corporations to analyze so they can improve sales by 1-3%
  6. MOST IMPORTANTLY: untold billions of dollars for Big Pharma

To add to this, while I identify as non-binary, well, most people who know me don't know that detail until a time comes up where I need to fill in gender and just check "non-binary" when it is an option and they happen to notice, otherwise I fill out per my biological gender of "male". I did have one lefty friend who had a meltdown for getting my pronouns wrong and said they'd use "ze" from now on and not "misgender me anymore" and that is the only time I have felt like I "had my pronouns disrespected", more because someone tried to use their made up BS neo-pronouns on me than any "misgendering". My policy has long been "Whatever makes it clear I am being referred to" when it comes to the pronoun thing, though I do have a friend who uses that against me in situations where there are two people he might be referring to, and choses whichever set of pronouns the other person isn't for me.
Case in point ^

Most trans folk are reasonable humans with mostly-reasonable expectations for how human societies work.

Any connection between the troon movement and trans people is purely coincidental.

The real driving force behind the political operation is the health lobby.

For me a lot of it is about being beyond the feelings of being confined by the usual gender binary and doing whatever the fuck I want.
That is already how reality works. You don't need to be fucking "non binary" to do that. Just be a man that does whatever the fuck he wants or a girl that does whatever the fuck she wants, like it always used to be. Sex/gender was never supposed to be as important as people made it out to be.

Even if all or any of that is true, my point still stands: No matter what your actual motivations are, if you want your movement to be viewed as credible and/or sympathetic it doesn't help to have very public, very unlikeable assholes at the forefront (inb4 'but Trump')

The troons are causing the trans movement to burn through any good will they may have accrued over the last 4 or 5 decades in a matter of years, which is fine by me but if I were a part of the Alphabet community I'd be doing everything I could to bury these motherfuckers; instead most seem to want to hand them a megaphone.

It's a lot like what 3rd-wave Feminism did for that wider movement, it turned them into a joke where any serious issues were lost under memes about sexist air conditioning; I get the exact same vibe when I watch a man in white spandex screaming about genocide because a wrestling announcer correctly identified him as man.

I think the comparison with 3rd wave feminism is very à-propos because this is probably a very general tendency of civil rights movement who have gotten most of what they can reasonably ask for.

After that point, who remains actively campaigning except those who still want more, i.e the crazies ? Because saying "Yeah things are going alright" isn't much of a political calling, let alone one that will get air time/clicks/comments on any media.

As vicious as that paradigm might be, it's just how it works.
