The Depressing Joy Of Garden Warfare (The Jimquisition)

http://www.patreon.com/jimquisition http://www.thejimquisition.com http://sharkrobot.com/collections/jimquisition-merch Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has become one of my favorite games, and that should make me happy. I mean, it does... but it's sort of depressing. When AAA games come out and give you everything you expect, it's a cause for celebration. That we DO celebrate when things do what they're supposed to is indicative of a problem. But seriously, I really love that game about flowers and corpses.

What a difference 2 years makes... EA takes a set forward, then loses its shit and Pogo sticks 50 miles back while cackling like a maniac.

I finally bought this 5 mins ago..It's $4.99 on sale from $19.99 because of E3 2018 sale... ~I have been wanting it on PS4 or Xbox1 and I don't have anything to play on PS4 besides OrcsMustDieUnchained.. ((( Just Cause 3 seems to clunky and I doubt i'll return for 2nd session.. And I almost bought Batman ArkhamKnight on PS4 just to see JusticeLeague3000 skin..how pathetic is/was that)) In Sir Jim We Trust!

I wish Jim would do a jimquisition on EA and how they destroyed a promising and amazing game company which has never been the same PvZ 2 is context locked through money and garden warfare 1 is microtransaction riddles and HAVE YOU SEEN the Xbox version of garden warfare 2 fucking hell that is bull crap

I'm very very late Jim but you didn't even mention the fact that all DLC in garden warfare 2 is free

Imagine a game where the free currency that you earn by playing is the powerful currency and the currency that you get through microtransactions is the bullshit currency.

Having played the first and second Garden Warfare, I personally feel that the first one's mechanics are overall more solid. Plus, they nerfed the original characters into oblivion.
it's gotten to the point that if a game was a shovel I would have to pay full prise for the handle.
Klobi for President (1 year ago)
This reminded me of something. does anyone know Hearts of Iron? HoI IV is probably one of the best games I've played. The base game offers incredible value for the forty dollars you pay. I wouldn't say it's the most fun game I've played. It's not the most exciting. What it is is an incredible time sink. it's so easy to lose hundreds of hours into it. You're feeling like the ruler of whatever you chose to do, being a fascist Switzerland that invades France, or being a communist Japan that sides with Russia to take over Asia. That's not to speak of the multiplayer ...

It's really sad watching the following episode before this one, knowing that a week later he has to discard most of the praise here because "they just couldn't help themselves."

I'm interested, what do people think of the original plants vs zombies? You know, the original.
Oda Swifteye (1 year ago)
It's good. It's a good game. Popcap games predated the micro transaction chaos that eventually overtook the puzzle game genre as they were all funneled into smart devices. These days the game has plenty of free content in it but it has now been updated with micros transactions (although they did add actual content and didn't cripple campaign mode for this addition).

nobody expects, the lavish jimquisition!
ColossalDonut5 (1 year ago)
I liked the first one but the second one steered too far away from what the game originally was, I may just be the only one but I feel like the fact that the new characters and zombies just made the game too alienating for me. Please don't put Crazy Dave in the same place as some weird action movie corn guy can be. Though I will say, the transfer system from the old game is the best idea ever.

Grownreserected (1 year ago)
I think most game companies use a good portion of their profit to provide big budget advertisements with their next "AAA game title" on major TV networks and channels to make it look like it's good and turns out it's shit. I can see a trend here.

I do, but I forgot what it was called. Something like Zoo Rampage. It was up on greenlight and I "No"ed the fuck out of it so hard I broke my mouse.
MiningBlock (2 years ago)
me and my friend played this game a while back when it first came out, put about 50 hours into it together and it truly is a fantastic game if you love multiplayer. unfortunately the single player campaigns are fairly short and not all that good if i'm being quite honest. The game really does feel complete though, i do feel like i'm not missing out on anything, and look at them now. me and my friend can't find a lobby to play with anyone, it seems the game's gone dead, and they just released FREE (worthwhile) DLC not too long ago, when's the last time you've heard that, huh? I think it's a phenomenal game and if more people played it I think i would fall in love with it again

Nintendo almost always delivers games with great content for a normal price.
Sam Hickey (2 years ago)
It's unfortunate that (a couple of recent standouts notwithstanding) Nintendo keeps delivering the same games for a normal price. Nintendo's strategy for developing a game usually just seems to be cycling through their guaranteed cash raker properties without really trying anything new.

seelefantman (2 years ago)
sadly they added microtransactions already into the game. but somehow they don't bother me all that much.
MasterJazz09 (2 years ago)
Garden warfare map packs and updates will all be free only thing you can pay for is coins but you really don't need to they give you a crap ton just for playing normally
chocolate starfish (2 years ago)
While konami is turning into shit EA on the other might be turning a new leaf and will hopefully no longer be that game company that's made fun of.
James O'Neill (2 years ago)
and then they'll start releasing character DLC and your support will die like an upside down turtle in the sun
MasterJazz09 (2 years ago)
+James O'Neill​ you are a idiot I have wasted my time with you 
James O'Neill (2 years ago)
+MasterJazz09 so in other terms your saying they have so little hope in keeping gamers attention they have to drag out releasing new content? yeah bullshit this isn't an mmo put it in the game or make it paid DLC 
MasterJazz09 (2 years ago)
+James O'Neill actually no they won't they already said dlc will be free just like the last game are you slow? There is no paid dlc. The dlc has to be made idiot releasing it in waves keeps the game fresh. Did you just ask what's the point of making dlc if it's free.......... Face palm
James O'Neill (2 years ago)
+MasterJazz09 no you know they'll start doing paid DLC and his support will die and whats the point in making DLC if its free? just put it in the damn game
MasterJazz09 (2 years ago)
All dlc and content update is free for this game just like the last one the only thing you can buy is coins and you don't even need to do that
dragonfiremalus (2 years ago)
Honest question, though. Has anybody playing GW2 actually seen the plants win? Every game I've played, no matter what side I'm on, the zombies win overwhelmingly. The plants have the disadvantage in pretty much every aspect, and that new pirate zombie has a huge advantage over every plant in close range and at distance.
MasterJazz09 (2 years ago)
Not really there is a counter to every class a plants win a lot some times they can lose it really depends on the players

firefox5926 (2 years ago)
the only reason we didn't have season passes and dlc and micro payments in 2000 was because it was infeasible to do so, these are company's their job is to make their stock holders money they do not care about you , its not their job to, their job is to make the most money possible while spending as little money as possible, so if micro transactions make them more money ofc their gonna put them in the only reason they wouldn't is if the cost of doing so would out weight the benefit and apparently atm it doesn't the only reason a company deals customers at all is if it benefits them a hell of a lot more than it does you
you know what i compare this to, titanfall, yeah thats right, i went their, year after release they made all of the dlc free and lowered the price of the game perminantly, and i was like, you go titanfall, you fun as shit game. and im hoping, im hoping so much they listen to what the fands want from a sequel and not just pump out the same game with one more mech and different maps, im hoping they give it a single player and you get to fight giant monsters in your mech and shit and put it on auto mode while you jump out and run up some Kaiju's back and shoot it in the face XD

EQOAnostalgia (2 years ago)
Disappointed in this video, good review of 2 but not nearly enough credit for GW1 which was an amazing game with a unique experience you won't find in GW2. The original was only $30 and went down to $20 less than a year later. All of the DLC was FREE. The microtransactions didn't matter because coins were given out at a perfect pace, you got just as much for your time in GW1!! GW2 pays out more coins but card packs are nearly DOUBLE the price! The 2nd will have microtransactions too btw. Just like the first one they wait a few months after release. There is literally no reason to buy coins EVER. The first PvZ GW was fucking amazing Jim! You missed out on a more tactical experience with better maps and pacing. The 2nd one is great, but the first one is still very much worth having.
smashbrosproductions (1 year ago)
yea well, he's against the idea of there being the inclusion of micro transactions regardless on a PAID GAME. It's fine in a free to play sort of situation, but when you pay up front, then it is a lot harder to swallow. The idea, is somewhat a kin to me buying a laptop, and only to find that if I want more out of it, I have to pay more for it like internal components it didn't come with for some reason. Sure, the micro transactions CAN be balanced so that in game it wouldn't do much, but the fact that it is there in itself defies the ideology that they would be there in a fair manner. Their inclusion, is there so as to increase long term profits. If it was balanced, then no one would buy the micro transactions since they would get all they need in game.
lukass smelkovs (2 years ago)
The difference with Primal is that the game is a copy paste of the Far Cry 4 ,even the map is the same . I wonder if mainstream AAA games or 40-60 dollar games in general will be as much as enjoyable as in late 2000's and early 2010's

You know what else is a full fledged game that succeeds by just selling a quality product to people? COD. Yes there are DLCs, but when the game launches, it is a genuinely good multiplayer focused video game.

+jfts09 When releasing the game 7 times in a row and barely adding anything new to multiplayer everytime, its not hard to make it good.

Hmm, Garden Warfare 2 sure looks fun to play. It reminds me of Conker Live & Reloaded with the graphics and third person shooter play style and the number of classes. I need to look more into it, I might buy it if I learn that its so fun to play.

+aiat soltani It wasn't, microstansatcions were added after this video was made.
shinobody (2 years ago)
To be honest, if that trend will continue triple A games will crash and disappear from the market. What is the point of spending 60 dollars on a game to later pay another 30 in microtransactions later to get the FULL content, when you can play a freemium game where you will have to shelf out 30 bucks for full content anyway? Or pay 10-20 for a indie game that is smaller, but is however WORTH all of that 20 bucks from the start without paying anything more and only DLC it has is soundtrack download (which usually goes directly to the musician and is actually worth buying).

Where's that Kotaku article about being grateful about the first Garden Warfare's microtransactions? Hmm? Who was that corporate-ass-kissing author who couldn't wait to usher in the age of broken-up-games-dripping-with-microtransactions? Which hole of yours would you like this humble pie?
Don't want to jump the gun but Id say EA's turned over a *New Leaf* (A thank 'ya kindly) Garden Warfare actually being a decent game at launch and them not forcing Bio-Ware to finish Mass-effect Andrmoeda before it ready, fuck even Ubisoft is trying new things with Farcry: Primal.
jon wayne (2 years ago)
What a fucking pointless episode! It feels like I'm watching the last 10 episodes all over again. You can only beat a dead horse for so long before it gets up and kicks you in ya fat fucking face! If you wanna keep the 10 grand a month you get from the divvy twats who fund your Patreon, then you need to get your tongue out of the arse of EA, Ubisoft and Activision. Else you might as well call yourself the Rimquisition! Your audience will become tired of the stale and repetitive moaning of season passes, exclusive dlc and early access rants each week. Just saying....... Rim licking Sterlingson.
