* RippedFromTheHeadlines: The main gimmick behind Jim's ''[=Itch.io=] Tasty'' series is seeing what strange games he can find on [[https://itch.io/ the titular website]] by putting in a search term related to a recent news story or video game release. Past search terms have included [[VideoGame/NoMansSky Hello]], [[Film/Deadpool2016 Superhero]], [[VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront Star Wars]], [[Creator/DonaldTrump Drumpf]], [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyInfiniteWarfare Warfare]] and [[UsefulNotes/DavidCameron Pig]].

** In a Squirty Play of "WICK", Jim's states that he would be very happy if he could just stop thinking.... but on the downside, he'd probably end up at a [[Creator/DonaldTrump Drumpf Rally]].

* ThemeMusicPowerup: Happens at the end of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dHGVF2syAQ Skate Man Intense Rescue: A Steam Spite Story]]. Jim's theme song, "Born Depressed", starts playing as he viciously and mercilessly hammers in the point that he now metaphorically owns Digpex Games, just like he owns Kobra Studio, The Slaughtering Grounds devs[[note]] Digital Homicide and Imminent Uprising[[/note]] and all other corrupt small-name indie devs who tried to take down his reviews of their shitty games and failed, only boosting Jim's popularity in the process.
* ThisMeansWar: At the end of "[=PS4=] - Doing Nothing, Meaning Everything", he says that Microsoft has declared war not on Creator/{{Nintendo}} or Sony but on the consumer for its used games policies.

** Those of us who are videogame journalists have met Jim at E3 and other industry events know he's very shy and softspoken in person, though still very eager to discuss the industry and trends.

He assumes the persona of [[AlterEgoActing a caricature of gaming journalists]] (which resembles a [[Series/AshesToAshes Gene Hunt]] cosplayer, because who else, right?) to make broader points about video games and the video game industry. Episodes can be found [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/jimquisition here]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/user/JimSterling/videos here]] and new content can be found on his website www.thejimquisition.com. Just make sure to include the "the" as Jimquisition.com, for unknown reasons, [[{{Hentai}} is something rather different.]]

* IconicItem: Jim tore a strip off Creator/{{Ubisoft}} in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN4Umsjp6Cs "Ubiconic"]] for [[YouKeepUsingThatWord constantly trying to market accessories owned by their characters as "iconic"]] in order to offer them as [[PreorderBonus preorder bribes]] when there was ''nothing'' iconic about them, such as [[VideoGame/WatchDogs Aiden Pearce's]] dopey black baseball cap with a barely-visible logo stenciled on it or the generic leather jacket worn by the operatives from ''VideoGame/TheDivision.''

* SelfDeprecation: Jim likes to make fun of his weight at times.



** He directs this at Ubisoft at the end of Ubisoft - A Sad History of PC Failures. Ubisoft's constant use of "iconic" had gotten on his nerves, applying it to things like Aiden Pearce's attire or an Assassins Creed character's pocket-watch. It got to the point that the episode "Iconic" was all about Ubi's misuse of the word.
