      Not going to happen. After the fallout at kinda funny, Jim literally ignores Colin's existence. Colin has even mentioned it on a few occasions how Jim seems to not like him anymore.

    Guess Colin forgot that the Mass Effect 3 writers also thought the ending was shit, so the "art" defense does not really work here.

    Jim's good for the industry overall. Puts the time in bringing exposures to predatory developers and practices. Any gamer who enjoys playing good games should have respect for him.

    Collin is so clearly the intellect from KF. And it's OK that not everyone in KF is wired that way, but it cracks me up how they didn't OVERvalue that aspect of what he brings to the table, much less backstab him when the going got tough. People - find smarter people than you and keep them close - and try to be more like them. You can find 'basic' all day long. Challenge yourself. Find the Collins and keep them close AF - they may not pat your ego and be super hyper 24/7 --- but that's kinda what you get with smart people a lot of the time. Value them. Let them be themselves.

    Never watched Jim before, but I can't go anywhere in the games media circle on the Internet without hearing about him so it's fitting to finally watch this as my personal goodbye to Colin on KF.

    Respect them for standing by it if you want. At best it's an attempt to save face by owning the shit. Otherwise they're straight-up blinded by delusions of grandeur or, well, stupid. Being able to pull shit out of your ass is a power that must be handled responsibly as a writer.

    I can't believe I didn't know that Colin and Jim sat down together. You two (and I love Greg, too, but he's not a "firebrand" like you two are) are my favorite folks in the industry now. I LOVE your viewpoints, even when I disagree.
    Your sincerity (the entire "Kinda Funny" crew applies there, and of course, THANK GOD FOR JIM) is a breath of fresh air. I wish continued success to each and am happy to support each at Patreon.
    ....of course, my concern is Patreon being able to maintain a secure environment in which my financial details aren't leaked...
    That's... a thing, isn't it?

    Jesus fucking christ, Jim Sterling is so fat, greasy and ugly (not to mention his fashion style is pure dogshit) that when I turned to his right, I suddenly became gay. Colin looks 500x hotter than he normally is. I guess it's true what they say, you know, hanging out with ugly people makes you look hotter. Funny, the fat fuck can't spew n entire sentence without gasping for oxygen.

    8:00 About that "gatekeepers" statement, and feeling like journalists may rub those kinds of people (developers and publishers) the wrong way: games critiques and journalists are gatekeepers too! Oh sure, it's studios that make the games and (in some cases) decide whether those games should be available to the public (*cough, cough, Konami PT*), but it's the independent media figures that direct whether gamers even visit the gateways that are the store fronts for those games in the first place! In a sense, the journalists and critiques are the most vital gatekeepers in the games industry!

    I like Colin. But these "Game Journalists" are annoying. There is nothing, NOTHING, they love more than telling us all how, "Some of the things I say are gonna rub people the wrong way." They love it. Jim Sterling FEEDS off it. And, when you're going into your job with THAT in mind....you're nothing more than the National Inquirer of video game "journalism".
    For many of these guys, it has become more about THEM than the games. They LOOK for something to say to cause an uproar. They seem to have no real idea of the time, effort, and care that goes into some of the games they review. They seem to have a mindset that "indie" games have some kind of innate "specialness" to them just for BEING an "indie" game. As if games by big publishers are evil or made by robots who don't "care" about what they're creating. It's like they're saying, " Unlike a lot of people, I like indie games. I'm not saying I hate the big titles, but, I guess I'm just a little wackyl, because, I like indie games. It's alright for you and most people to like the games made by big corporations, but, I like playing games made by real people." It's just so patronizing.
    Jim Sterling is the guy who THINKS he's being cutting edge, when, in fact, he's taking the easy way out. Who the fuck DOESN'T route for indie game developers! He's the guy who says shit like, " I know it's not popular to say, but, I think we should invest more in education." And IDIOTS say to themselves, "Yea, I do to! You're the best Jim!" Uggh.

  • redhawkmillenium

    About Mass Effect 3. Jim seems more sympathetic to the fans on this, but there's an important point that I think he missed and I haven't seen Colin address. With something like Mass Effect 3, I think BioWare had an obligation, in a sense, to provide a satisfying experience to its players, its fans, its customers. Fans had spent upwards of $180, assuming they bought each on release -- that number could quickly grow into the hundreds if they bought collector's editions, DLC, soundtracks, comics, novels, and various other merchandise related to Mass Effect. This can be hard to understand for critics to whom Mass Effect is just one of dozens of game series they've played, but for many hardcore fans, Mass Effect, its characters, and its world are deeply important in a way few other games, movies, TV shows, or books are. Isn't that the kind of fan that a studio wants most of all? The kind that will buy all that ancillary merchandise, and spend their free time writing fan fiction, drawing fanart, editing together AMVs, putting together cosplays, etc. Mass Effect was good enough to attract a lot of that kind of fan, and the support of these fans is a large part what made Mass Effect successful and allowed them to continue "making their art" all the way through. And it's that kind of fan that would have been deeply upset the most by a disappointing, frustrating ending.
    So after all that investment, all that support, I think those fans had a right to be upset that it all lead up to such a resounding dud, and have a right to ask for BioWare to redo the ending and make it better. They have a right to feel entitled -- it was our money that allowed the BioWare to continue the series to completion. BioWare also had the right to stick to their guns and not change the ending, but I can't see how that would have been the better decision for anyone involved. You end up alienating those hardcore fans, potentially losing future game sales. I for one probably would have passed on Dragon Age Inquisition, regardless of how good it was, if BioWare hadn't at least tried to patch things up with Mass Effect 3. Partly out of desire to punish BioWare in a small way by witholding my money, but also because I wouldn't be able to *trust* that BioWare wouldn't just do the same hack ending in the future. If that's why I have to expect out of BioWare stories, why continue putting in the investment? There's an implicit agreement between a content creator, or someone who puts out "art" *for money*, and the fans who consume that content/art. The agreement is that the creator will make content that the fans enjoy, and the fans will continue supporting the creator by paying for it. When that agreement is broken by the creator and they put out something the fans don't enjoy, the fans will stop supporting the creator, *unless* the creator restores that agreement. I think that in BioWare's case with Mass Effect 3, restoring the agreement meant going back and changing the ending into something more enjoyable to fans.
    There's also the matter that BioWare played up Mass Effect 3's ending as being "massively different" depending on the decisions you made in the games, and it wouldn't just be an "A, B, or C" decision. But the ending was exactly that. You can't really stick to your "artistic integrity and vision" when you make claims about that vision and then completely fail to measure up to it so obviously. That's called being dishonest hacks. Going back and trying to make an ending more in line with what you said it would be shows *more* integrity than just leaving it far removed from what you said it would be.
    Anyways, good video. I can at least respect Colin for acknowledging how badly executed that video he made was back when ME3 first came out. He doesn't say it specifically, but I think the worst part of it was how he came off so condescendingly. He still holds to his opinion, but he doesn't seem so condescending about it here.

    Every time I hear a story about anonymous EA employees rooting for EA's critics I get happy and sad that these wonderful people are being so abused by the corporate structure.
    Although I guess Konami is rigorously determined not to even allow for that shred of humanity to show with its own people...
