Six Times Bethesda Was Massively Incompetent (The Jimquisition) Bethesda has created some of the most enduring power fantasies of our time, and there's a good reason why The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a game that refuses to die. However, Bethesda isn't known for stable experiences, or welcome decisions, or not screwing up in massive ways. With Fallout 76 coming out and being rubbish, let's look back at some of the notorious goofs from a company that goofs hard and often. By no means a comprehensive list, but a fun one! #Bethesda #Fallout #Fallout76 #Skyrim __ Twitter: Facebook: Jim’s Big Ego (No Relation): Bandcamp of the Sax Dragon - Nathan Hanover -

Sexual Assault of Men Played for Laughs

It’s hard to overstate just how common jokes about men being sexually assaulted are in entertainment media. Most popular comedic actors engage in this type of humor. Jokes are typically designed to demean, humiliate, control, or emasculate a male character for being the victim, or potential victim, of sexual violence. This is the 1st of 2 video essays on this topic. Part 1 focuses on humor involving men sexually assaulting or harassing other men. Part 2 will examine media in which women are depicted as the perpetrators.

Demolishing The Excuses Made For 'AAA' Publishers' Exploitative Greed (The Jimquisition) The excuses people make for multibillion dollar publishers have to stop. They ignore so many ways in which the "AAA" game industry both makes money and takes shortcuts. #JimSterling #TheJimquisition #Jimquisition #AAA #EA #Activision #Money #PS4 #PC #XboxOne From tax havens to worker mistreatment, from the avoidance of royalties to the sheer amount executives make in compensation, the game industry actually has it EASY while pretending it's got it hard. Let's look at all this. __ Twitter: Facebook: Jim’s Big Ego (No Relation): Bandcamp of the Sax Dragon - Nathan Hanover -

Videogame publishers are greedy, exploitative predators for which no amount of money will ever be enough. While we know and loathe this, it is also by design that they are the way they are.

Layoffs, cutbacks, excessive monetization, it's all part of a system built on unsustainable, short-sighted growth. Now we're in the endgame, where we find out there IS no endgame.

But let's start with Buzzfeed...
