Vexed Generation (The Jimquisition)




The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are finally out in the wild. Well, that’s only theoretically true. They’re officially out, but finding an available one has become a trial.

Both the PS5 and Xbox Series have had bungled preorders and a terrible launch rollout. Doesn’t matter to them, but what about the rest of us poor saps? And what does a game critic do when they’re all out of Demon’s Souls?

Let’s find out!

  1. Can we just skip the middlemen and have the scalpers organise the distribution directly?

  2. It’s always annoyed me that they advertise things they’re not selling. I had the same issue when I tried to get a Nintendo Switch for so long.

    I know production limits, Covid, etc. And I don’t even really want a next gen console yet. It’s just weird to see things advertised and to be hyped, that most of us aren’t allowed to buy.

  3. I’m disappointed Jim. “Too many bananas,” and no “the only thing more bananas,” joke?

  4. YouTube is purposely trying to force and entice more ads that way more people will sign up for YouTube premium

  5. I’m not even trying to buy these things right now. I’ll grab one in a year or two. Or whenever we get the ps5pro+EX arcade edition featuring Dante from the devil may cry series.

  6. When no-one was looking, Jim Sterling bought five bunches of bananas. FIVE bunches. That’s as many as ~20 bananas. And that’s terrible.

  7. YouTuber: Demonetizes themselves.
    YouTube: It’s free real estate!

  8. “We spent a lot of time on this one”

    Ok THAT is not what I was expecting at ALL. Still managing to surprise, Jim

  9. when jim starts sobbing and hits the camerapersons hand away i lost it. he has such feral energy

  10. I aggressively block all ads so you’re golden Jim. No problems here.

  11. Everyone buying a console from scalpers, are the biggest idiots on this planet. Getting angry about scalpers? Why feed them with your money?

  12. “Making demon souls noises with my mouth part” slayed me

    DEMON SLAYED ME

  13. I thought your aliens toy was really neat, Jim. Don’t cry.

  14. It’s scalpers like you buying up all the bananas that means I can’t even enjoy a banana while playing on my PS5.

  15. So when is Sony and Microsoft going to start demanding people dance on Tiktok for the chance of buying a console?

  16. “IT’S TOO MANY BANANAS!” feels like it should be meme’d for all eternity.

  17. UK street artist Banksey on Adverts:

    “People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.

    You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity.

    F*ck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.

    You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.

  18. Adblock is your friend, kids. Also Jim is going to be pooping well this week.

  19. Off-topic, but Jim’s actually not half bad at singing at all

  20. Not gonna lie, the Aliens slime sequence and Tears of a Boglin is top-tier JimJustin.
