Fun Pay Wall

But maybe I'll just buy it all as DLC.

The ultimate irony would have been to charge 1.99$ to be able to see this video.

sad thing is that's the plus/gold member price

No that's for the next verse. Which will be release tomorrow as DLC.

Wonderwall by Oasis

This sir is a wonderful whatever you call it of that song.

I was thinking this was a parody/whatever you call it of Robie/Robin (which is it?) Williams. Truly I am an otaku who loathes (most of) western pop culture.

And if you don't like it you'll be able to purchase auto-tune for only 5,99$!
Or perhaps you'd like to quit the page?
999'999,99$! what a steal!

When can I snag the MP3?

Totally stuck in my head now, and I love it.

The moment I saw Jim's face and lyrics beneath the video I knew that it was going to be glorious. I was right.

Honestly, not the worst version of Wonderwall I've heard. But then again, I live across from two pubs, both of which have karaoke nights, so that isn't really saying much.

I enjoyed the rendition anyway, Jim.

Thank GOD, for you Jim!

I've been playing Forza since number 2 (with the exception of Horizon), but what Turn10 are doing with their current DLC strategy is - pardon my French - an absolute fucking disgrace! The bloody season pass is more expensive than the game. A launch title (and their inflated costs) for the love of you! Safe to say, I won't be buying any DLC for Forza 5.

Dem painkillers!

This seems to be becoming more common and I can only assume it happened while I was taking a nap or something. I saw on the Playstation Store last week that the season pass for the new COD is $50. $10 less than the full game. For some additional multiplayer maps.

I'm sorry, but if people are going to pay almost as much as a full game, they should just be getting a full god damn game. Hell, back in the old days of PC expansions, and even now with things like XCom Enemy Within, we pretty much do get a full game for less than what that season pass costs. Any company charging that much for all of their DLC is doing it wrong.

Id argue any consumer paying for it is consumering wrong.

EDIT:im in no way sticking up for the companies, its a disgrace how much they take the piss. But I vote with my wallet.

I love Jim, great sentiment here and the perversion of the lyrics was great and clever and all.. just.. Oasis are sharpened bamboo sticks under my fingernails.

That was great.

But I just don't give a shit anymore. As long as I have Steam sales I'm the winner. Sell your games big publishers. Sell them for $60 and $60 worth of DLC on top of that. I'll wait a year and get it all for $15. I have a life to live. And I have other sources of entertainment. I don't have to buy your games as soon as they're released.

I would like to take a moment to appreciate Jim in all his wondrous glory for this excellent performance. May we stand and fight needless paywalls for as long as they're built between us and our entertainment.

Or something along those lines.

If this is meant to be a reaction to the rampant microtransactions on xbox games, those also include singleplayer and are not in fact dlc but microtransactions to unlock stuff.

Ok, Jim we now together have tortured my neighbors.

The second I heard the melody starting and saw the lyrics below the video I couldn't help myself and started to sing along. So yeah, I guess we have to pay for psychological damage now we may have caused.

Anyway I hate this whole p2w DLC crap and season passes and all that other bull... they're throwing at us gamers.

I want my old expansion packs back :(

Safe to say, wasn't expecting this when I clicked the video. Wasn't disappointed.

What a grand rendition, thank god for you Jim.

It just goes to show that Oasis are such a British band that all you need is a natural British accent to be able to emulate their singing.

Not to begrudge Jim, for a non-professional singing he didn't botch that at all, but a great example of square peg -> square hole for choice of vocal emulation.

Absolutely hilarious! I was laughing out loud at every single line. :D This is going to be popular when the Escapist puts it on YouTube.

Eff-king brilliant Jim! I want the MP3 :D

*clap clap clap* this was all kinds of brilliant, can we have the song for download, please? :3

Agreed. So let's just split the difference and say they're both doing it wrong and get back to playing games that don't rip us off. :D

That was quite awesome Mr. Sterling. Thanks for the extra Jimquisition.

Damn. They weren't kidding when they said you could sing, Jim. :)

I came for the funny, but stayed and listened to it a few times more for the beauty of your voice.

Well done! =w= b

So i see you have explored the new consoles now.
Yeah, if your putting DLCs in a game the version im buying is the "all-in-One" version that is discounted to cost less than new launch title. Sadly even the best studios like Paradox are doing it now like as if that was a normal thing to do.
Whats even worse is that people are buying into it.

Vivi22:

Sadly there is less games that do this every year. Even the hardcore developers now released a "enchanted downloadable content". though, admittedly, for free.

Holy shit, you got some pipes on you, Mr. Sterling! Well done!

Look out Miracle of Sound, a new challenger has appeared.

This... was just too damn funny, and I really wasn't expecting this until I noticed the lyrics were up underneath the video. I always like when you add mid-week stuff, it's always amusing or interesting.
