Demolishing The Excuses Made For 'AAA' Publishers' Exploitative Greed (The Jimquisition) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycz3U1HDfJo
I can't speak to that personally, but given what we *do* know of how QA testers are generally mistreated by the industry at large, I'd be interested to see what those hours exactly were. https://twitter.com/Chickabumpbump/status/1051891311937249280
Regardless of who worked what, the attitude on display is indicative of a problem across the entire game industry, as highlighted by many devs on social media revealing their past treatment today.
That's the takeaway for me. Houser felt those initial comments weren't a big deal enough to say without clarification. Because to game industry higher ups, it isn't a big deal and the "100 hour work week" is still portrayed as something noble instead of something unreasonable.
They clarified which team was working a ludicrous amount of hours, but still the hours being worked were fucking ludicrous.
Or at least, they would be in an industry where crunch wasn't embraced, championed, and boasted about.
Speaks volumes Houser felt it laudable. https://twitter.com/stephentotilo/status/1051889254530469888
Side note: kudos to @JUSTINtime4aLAF for deciding to add two images of Stephen Amell topless on a salmon ladder because... woof! Yes please! https://twitter.com/cwtwheely/status/1051855100883427328

This week's Jimquisition definitively tears into the excuses people make for the multibillion dollar publishers churning out videogames. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycz3U1HDfJo
Look at that, we could have had a version of Shenmue that might actually have been good. https://twitter.com/digitalfoundry/status/1051821881903513601
My thoughts on crunch from a while ago: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8RCV0UWJgE
Crunch periods aren’t a triumph of the workforce, they’re a failure of the management. https://twitter.com/GIBiz/status/1051776503254605826
“Wow this tweet blew up” is the Twitter equivalent of “try the veal.”
Aaah, Wes speaks!! My favorite enemy.
You refuse to look to the Sters, and we will rip out those eyes for refusing to open. https://twitter.com/wes_warren24/status/1051618285622624258
Fairly light wrestling practice today. Next week I’ve put myself down for bumping. I’ve oddly been looking forward to it.

Rasslin' practice again today. I think today might be bumping day. RIP.
We shoooould be getting Jimquisition merch orders mailed out tomorrow. The final set of pins just came in and they're amazing. Hopefully we can mail it all out tomorrow.
Thank you for your patience. It's a heckuva lot of work doing it all ourselves but we're getting it done!
Apparently their website listings are doing exactly that.
Watching WWE attempt to untangle itself from the Saudi deal is going to be a thing. Given its tendency nowadays to not address anything onscreen, I wonder if they'll just pretend there never was a Crown Jewel event.
