I think Jim waited because he genuinely doesn't give enough of a shit, he's got his weird wrestling thing going now and failed to garner any meaningful interest on his channel for it with every attempt he's made. That and he probably realizes any impact it would have on his community has been diminished because he never shut up about Activision Blizzard, making people desensitized to it, or take it with a grain of salt, because Jim makes Bobby Kotick out to be literally mega jew Hitler every 3 minutes in a video.

Jim's got no drive or passion for making videos anymore, and it's apparent he doesn't care about what he produces, but it causes him pain to know that people are unsubscribing because they don't give a shit about what he's passionate about at the moment; trooning and wrestling. He tries to make it out like he's the victim, and that people who unscubscribed are biggots, and that he's entitled or owed those subscriptions, rather than people wanted content related to video games, not about his weird ass hobbies and personal issues or bitching about politics.

I'd love for him to answer what exactly he spends his patreon, youtube etc money or see an accounting of it, or see how he defends it while pretending to be pro workers rights and so on.
I mean you're on point with the Mega Jew part

That's what I find interesting, though, and why I enjoy watching people who actually know what they're talking about pick it apart and explain, in legal terms, why none of this could possibly stand up in court, as opposed to Jim who just uses it as a springboard to rant about Activision and 'muh trans genocide' for fifteen minutes.

And you just know when this all inevitably goes nowhere and the lawsuit gets tossed out he's gonna make an even saltier rant.
Is there a good video to watch about this at all? I know Upper Echelon did something but his was very general and just did an overview.

I'd also like to know this. I think Nick Rekieta has talked about it on stream and Leonard French has also gone over the court papers but I haven't watched either yet and I'd really prefer a more concise breakdown than the long-form livestream discussions.

Quick sidenote: One interesting thing I caught from the start of the French video is the opening statement in the lawsuit quotes the bullshit statistic about women making up half of gamers in the United States --for anyone unaware, this was contrived by counting respondents who said they occasionally played Candy Crush or Solitaire as 'gamers'-- so that really sets the tone, in my opinion.

I'm in favour of these issues being brought to light and covered extensively, whether I think the allegations are credible or not, I just don't think Jim is the right person to do it
Which is why its good the activision blizzard story was covered by multiple people a few weeks before he did, given the severity of it. Most of his videos are just rants which again, im not against, but people rarely tune into rants on youtube for information, they mostly tune in for entertainment value which is why people tend to rant about insubsequential things like awful movies and videogames, not stories like this.

Going back to my opportunist comment I made about him, look what I just spotted

Wasnt he bitching about companies marketing to the lgbt crowd to make money for themselves? Again, im not against people making their own merch, I just find it hypocritial given hes done at least 2 full videos about how those making products towards minority groups to line their own pockets are predatory capitalist scum.

But, but it's a minority grifting to other minorities, its fine! He has to get that honey pot back over 15k a month somehow!

Another thing that struck me about the latest Jimquisition is that Jim is an old man. He is ashamed of his edgy past, and bitter that life did not turn out his way. I've already done a rant on this before but good lord Jim sounds so much like a bitter old man. The damn kids (gamers) better get off his lawn.

I will grant that these accusations at Activision Blizzard are truly awful and seem to have more teeth since we are seeing actual legal action instead of just the court room of Twit and Er. However, there are people who cover this so much better without all the bitterness and hatred. Again, there is no reason to watch Jim anymore if you want game coverage.

That's the problem with this whole thing. We don't know how credible these accusations are yet. The whole document is written like a hit-piece, and the lawsuit is being filed by a department with a clear interest in punishment and reparations as opposed to establishing the truth. The whole thing is a litany of talking points, and if I were a conspiratorial man I would suspect California of trying to railroad this whole thing. For all the buzz about sexism in the workforce, no huge corporation was ever nailed for it as publicly as they're trying to nail Blizzard.

The only reason I would care is because of his pro-socialism shit. Because he makes excuses for whenever he participates and enjoys the fruits of capitalism. Outside of that, I really don't give a fuck what people do with their money. It's mostly just an avenue to laugh at him.

Putting the minority exploitation to the side, this is a pretty big oof yikes chief moment with the shirt's message, given we're only a couple weeks on from the 'we're going to convert your children' song that got pulled after half the choir were exposed as chesters.

I appreciate it's just supposed to be a joke and people like Jim couldn't care less about winning people over, but I think I'd rather wear the Broke Dick Farms shirt than this.

Yeah, normally I wouldn't give a shit, but I would love for his fans to see how he's living and spending their cash and have it yoinked after they see how he's the type of person he complains about most. That and the misery he'd feel from being forced to sell the stupid Boglins etc to buy food would bring me great joy.

Even though I suspect a fair portion of it to be true, I think your caution is smart. Depending on the studio you're at, the video games industry is harsh to everybody involved, and it wouldn't shock me of some inexperienced women at Blizzard thought that harshness was only being directed at them. And I don't know how you even prove that just the women were being underappreciated and underpaid.

Seeing all the opportunistic people who are trying to attach their politics to this issue makes me think that certain things are going to be exaggerated in order to advance women and minorities in the industry. I'm just waiting for Anita Sarkeesian to try to use this in some way.

I know it won't happen, but I would laugh my ass off if Billion-Dollar Bobby just said 'ah fuck it' and shitcanned the entire company. Extra points if he gives himself and the other execs a massive golden parachute on the way out the door.

I think Jim would literally die from seething.

A friend of mine is a contract game dev who has worked short-term contracts for studios all over the world, and he said that he quit Blizzard 2 weeks into a 3-month contract last year because it was the most toxic work environment he has ever worked in (and he's worked for fucking Ubisoft). That was in a fairly progressive European country too, ActiBlizz is rotten from the top down, and whilst I don't know for sure whether the letter of these particular allegations are true or not, let's just say my friend finds them very plausible.

“One woman committed suicide after the supervisor she was dating shared naked pictures of her”
It is extremely hard to prove motivation for suicide. She would have been more useful alive since it would be a revenge porn case, something California is very strict about. But no, it wasn’t, and this will be laughed out of court.
If this one actually sticks, Zoe Quinn should be on the docket next.

Oh, but it's okay that he does it, because he trooned out, so he's officially part of the LGBT, and the evils of Capitalism are only good when they do it. Everything the LGBT does is exempt from criticism because they're "marginalized".

All this really confirms is that James is a hypocrite, which we already knew anyways.
