The JIM Show - Let's Play Destiny Beta - Episode 112

Daniel and Jack (sadly sans Jeremy) play Destiny and talk about how the game has evolved between the alpha and the beta as well as various other topics (as this show tends to do). In a first for The JIM Show, we recorded video as well as audio, so you all can see the trials and tribulations those new to Destiny might face... while also laughing at how bad Jack is at the game.

(Episodes 109-111 will be uploaded in a haphazardly fashion. We have recorded them, but thiss experiement and the way our hosting service works means that they can't go up right away. Sorry for the inconvenience!)

The JIM Show - Movie Games ft. Community Guest Will Watson - Season 2 Episode 35

After technological challenges and corporate delays, the gang is back! This week Will Watson, perhaps better known on Game Informer Online as The Destroyer, joins the crew for a discussion regarding movie adaptations of video games. Can good movies be made out of video games? What sorts of challenges stand in the way of a quality video game movie? Why haven't we seen a massively successful video game franchise hit the big screen? We take on these big questions and try to give you some answers.

Music this week is a great remix that makes use of one of the more popular songs on The Wind Waker soundtrack. 'Her Smile in Every Summer' by Hot Freaks is a great little indie rock piece that you'll be sure to love. More great music like this can be found over on OCRemix.org (FOR FREE).

The JIM Show - An Irrational Argument - Season 2 Episode 33

This week, the gang spends a good chunk of the show discussing lighthearted topics like sudden infant death syndrome, constitutional amendments and the NSA. Ok that doesn't sound light hearted, but it was a laugh-fest compared to the monstrous debate that populates most of this episode. Our passionate discussion about the closure of Bioshock Infinite developer Irrational Games turns into a larger debate on society and corporate politics. This is possibly the most heated debate in JIM Show history, so buckle up. It's quite a ride.
