Hello, good folks of Game Informer Online! It has been a while hasn’t it? In fact, it has been roughly ten episodes of a while. What’s that? Ten episodes isn’t a measurement of time? Well, you’re right. However, we at JIMS Inc. tend to record more or less one episode per week and considering that we took a few weeks off while looking for a new hosting site… well, like I said in the first place, it has been a while.
Moving on, remember that bit where I said something about ten episodes? I wasn’t pulling that number out of nowhere. Right now, there are ten brand-new, shiny, and all-around great podcast episodes of the Jacked-up Indie and Mojo Show for your listening pleasure! After we found our new home over on Libsyn, we began working on editing and finishing all the episodes we had recorded in the meantime. Now we are all caught up and will be having a new episode posted every Tuesday beginning tomorrow! You can listen to us talk, debate, and nearly kill each other over things like: used games, Jeremy’s terrible luck with customer service, DRM, E3 and next-gen systems, Daniel getting rear-ended by teenage girls, and much, much more! Below, you will find all ten episodes, half of which are blasts from the past featuring community guests like Ace13, Hist, Born4This, and Noobtubin8r, along with more recent episodes from the last few weeks. We hope you enjoy them as much as we love making them (even though Daniel smells sometimes).
The JIM Show Episode 59 with Community Guest Ace13
In this blast from the past, we invited Game Informer community ember Ace13 on to the show to discuss video games and video game related topics. As always, we cover a wide variety of topics like how freelancing video game journalism works and Fire Emblem, but focus mostly on our favorite female characters in video games and what makes those leading ladies so great.

The JIM Show Episode 60 with Community Guest Born4this
In this episode recorded shortly after the PS4 reveal, the gang (and Dean) gathered together to talk all things PS4 related. The end result is an episode full of speculation, excitement, and predictions for the future of console gaming. Dean also talks about his awesome new passion project of custom painting his old Super Nintendo.
The final track of this episode is ‘Spelunking in Space’ by Hylian Lemon, a reworked version of Cocoa Cave theme from Kirby Super Star.
The JIM Show Episode 61 with Community Guest Noobtubin8r
In episode 61, I went AWOL with a broken computer, leaving Daniel and Jeremy to fend off the hordes of Brian Seavey's (aka Noobtubin8r’s). Daniel, Jeremy and Brian helm the show and discuss Aliens Colonial Marines and the new Lara Croft.

The JIM Show Episode 62 with Community Guest Hist
It was our pleasure to have Game Informer community member and blogging star Hist on the show to talk with us about all things gaming. We tackle Dead Space 3's microtransactions (remember THOSE???) and our feelings for the Assassin's series on the heels of the Assassin’s Creed IV announcement. We also discuss some comments about PR women made by Cliff Bleszinski, the former lead designer at Epic Games.
