The Video Games Show
The Video Games Show (or VGS for short) is a weekly gaming industry news podcast hosted by Rich Bergin, Matt Gurley and Jake Friedel. Combining extensive knowledge and experience in the gaming industry as professionals and major gaming fanboys, VGS will provide a comical look at all things gaming. From retro games, PC, modern console, handhelds, etc., if it is gaming, we'll talk about it.

On the eve of International Party Day USA, the crew of VGS sits for one last time...before stuffing themselves with turkey and all kinds of Thanksgiving goodness.  This week Rich, Chuck, Jake, Bob and special guest/World Record holder P.J. Walsh sit down and discuss the limited news of the week, Rich apologizes and rips into Nintendo for making him apologize, P.J. discusses breaking world records, Black Friday days, what we are thankful for, your emails, a contest announcement, and more.  So sit back and let the sounds of VGS guide you to your post turkey coma nap.

Bongo, BT, Keith and Josh takeover VGS OC (since Rich had to be pulled away to adult things) and talk about a Space Jam reboot, stuff showing up for Black Friday and even got a little bit political, (dont worry, its short lived....) and randomly talk about things happening on the skype call.  Dont get some of the jokes in this episode or the title name?

On Election Night 2016 Rich, Matt and Jake get together and talk no politics whatsoever in the proud tradition of VGS.  Instead the guys discuss upcoming game releases, the launch of the NES Mini Classic, Nintendo offering a 3DS on Black Friday for $99.99, Steam ordering legit screenshots, PS4 Pro, plus your emails and so much more.

Seriously, I can't stop watching that turkey...just moving...bobbing...never mind.  Anyway, Ron, Rich, Kevin, Keith and Josh saddle up for a better late than never episode of Overclocked.  In addition to what the guys have been up to, topics on tap include the World Series, Uwe Boll's retirement, thoughts on the Nintendo Switch, movies we can't believe are being remade, webcams, kitty cats, Josh's chest, and so much more.

A packet house for this episode of VGS where redemption is on the minds of so many felt wronged by the show.  Matt, Jake, Bob, Kurt and Rich take out their frustrations on not just each other, but also hit up emails, the Nintendo Switch, Red Dead Redemption 2, video game voice actors strike, Halloween content, PS VR motion sickness, what drives us retro, and so much more.

Well, it started out like any other show and completely went off the rails, as these things tend to do.  Ron, Kevin, Addy, Keith, Matt (DumpsterMonkey) & Rich go through so much, it is impossible to list.  Some highlights include video game release weirdness, VR, shows/movies we aren't watching, movies that make us cry, what is Keith doing now, Rich watches random things during the podcast, Halloween viewing, and much more.

So a number of press events happened since the last VGS and the crew discusses all of it.  Rich, Matt, Jake and (occasionally) Chuck dig into the PS4 Pro, the iPhone 7, the Nintendo direct, new special edition Sonic Mania being not so special, a rumor that will make some fans' blood boil, plus much more.
