* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qS-LXvhy1Do When Jim Sterling Was Sued For $10 Million By Digital Homicide]]" is a big one against the Romine Brothers of Digital Homicide infamy, where Jim spends over half an hour detailing the epoch of the FrivolousLawsuit leveled against Jim for [[CantTakeCriticism criticizing their games and lack of ethics as developers]]. Having been legally unable to discuss the matter until the lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice (read: case closed, never to be reopened), Jim took great pleasure in tearing the Romines a new one.

** He feels that if a game developer is going to exclude female protagonists from their games, that they should at least be straight up with it, like Rockstar and Square Enix were for Grand Theft Auto 5 and Final Fantasy XV, instead of coming up with nonsensical excuses like Ubisoft and Nintendo did for ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity'' and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series respectively.

** Jim's relationship with the entire "Triple-A Industry" has always been strained, but over the course of 2017, [[http://www.thejimquisition.com/the-year-of-the-loot-box-the-jimquisition/ "the Year of the Lootbox"]], it has devolved into outright enmity. Between Creator/ElectronicArts, Creator/WarnerBros, Creator/ActivisionBlizzard and Creator/{{Ubisoft}}, Jim has nothing less than absolute ''hatred'' for almost the entire mainstream game development industry, considering them soulless, morally bankrupt, sleazy, dishonest rip-off merchants for whom there is absolutely ''no'' depths to which they will not sink in their never-ending pursuit of more money at the expense of their customers. He no longer has ''any'' benefit of the doubt left to spare for them and sees no reason to believe ''anything'' they say.

* CouchGag: Beginning with episode 19, each episode started with Jim off-handedly mentioning a new symptom of Gavin's "illness". It began with a real-life incident where Gavin had his foot stood on by a high-heeled shoe, but has since gone on to include rotting flesh, egg-laying insects and crows nesting in it. They eventually stopped. When a listener asked why in one episode, they answered that, essentially, they thought it had run its course.

** As always, the utter disdain for Ubisoft. Invoked though, considering that Ubisoft keeps giving them reasons to talk about them.

** As always, the utter disdain for Ubisoft. Invoked though, considering that Ubisoft keeps giving them reasons to talk about them. A sub-running gag is that Gavin, who has on occasion worked with Ubisoft and doesn't want to burn bridges, adamantly does not participate in Laura and Jim's needling of the company. (It's to the point where it's a non-gag, i.e. they're entirely serious, when they say to the audience not to bother Gavin about this on Twitter or other social media, and for God's sake not to tag in Ubisoft's official accounts into the conversation.)

* DudeNotFunny: The motivation for Jim moving away from his original "dictator" persona, since he felt that with the state of world politics it was no longer funny or amusing.

* DudeNotFunny: Jim has expressed disgust in some Greenlight trailers showing offensive content that no one would find funny, such as slurs and hate towards specific groups of people.

* SarcasmMode: Happens occasionally, but rarely do entire episodes get made out of pure sarcasm. A good example is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Odoe1qVkcJ4 "The Good Boys of YouTube"]] which praises TMartin and ProSyndicate, the infamous undercover owners of [[VideoGame/CounterStrike CS:GO]] [[TheCasino gambling sites]], to heavens - at least, until Jim gets to discussing LetsPlay/PewDiePie who...
