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.

Now that MO Game Con has occurred and some days have past, it is time to reflect on all the awesomeness.  Join four of the five members of the con planning crew (Chad Hager, Chuck Shaw, Jake Friedel & Rich Bergin) along with Matt Gurley as the guys discuss everything about the con, from the planning phase, hanging out with Adam Koralik, the con itself, what they saw, what they got, all the con wonder, and how they took a grand total of eight hours off before starting to plan next year's MO Game Con II: The Wrath of Con!

WARNING: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE!!!

With MO Game Con less than five days way (August 13, www.mogamecon.com), the team of Rich, Matt, Jake, Bob & Chuck are a bit over excited/over stressed and this episode is a reflection of their mental states.  Besides talking the con, the guys talk about Pokemon GO changes and getting banned in Iran, Nintendo dropping the price of the New 3DS and including some additional goodies, Matt discusses betting Uncharted 4 and looking ahead to No Man Sky, and then we discuss some stuff later that gets kinda blurry.  Again, please forgive us and our lack of focus.  This ends up becoming an OVERCLOCKED episode towards the end.

WARNING: EXPLICIT!!! After a break in episodes, the crew of Overclocked return.  We talk a bunch about MO Game Con, including who will be there, the show that will be recorded, and what we will be doing.  We mock those trying to take RottenTomatoes.com offline, we find a buried recording, talk about crappy movies, and round everything out with some good ole fashion "Would You Rather" questions.

Welcome to the Mo Game Con special episode of VGS.  Don't worry, that isn't all that is discussed.  Besides the con Rich confides in his co-hosts a costly pledge on Kickstarter, Jake talks about the insides of the SNES Playstation, Nintendo releases true numbers behind Pokemon Go profits, Mini NES vs. Mini Genesis, Xbox One S bundles, and Matt forgets his $2 to give to special guest Bob Friedel for his 2 cents.

Yes, the wait is finally over and the crew of VGS Overclocked is back.  Normally I would write about what was discussed, but there is so much free flow to this episode, it is hard to point out specifics.  Well, we do get an update from Josh on Phoenix Comic Con, Rich rants about Mighty No. 9, Addy wants to tend bar everywhere, Keith is employee of the month, we hold the first publc meeting of the VGS Corp LLC Board of Directors live on the show, and we all ponder about getting a degree in gun repair while working as...well...you need to listen for that bit.  Big thanks to the Mo Game Con (www.mogamecon.com) and The State for this episode.

Really no description needed besides the fact that Rich, Matt and Jake discuss all the news to come out of E3 2016.  Oh, and Matt & Jake forced Rich to name the episode what it is...you'll understand later.

We want to hear from you!!!  What news are you most/least excited about out of E3 2106?  Email your answers to vgsmailbox@gmail.com

Matt & Rich fly solo this week on an all new VGS.  The guys discuss Microsoft supporting cross-platform play, speculate on the new version of the Xbox One, PvP being introduced into Minecraft, a Dragon Quest game that is like Minecraft coming to North America, further Nintendo complaints, the greatest game is now free on Xbox Live for Xbox One, fanboys needing to calm the heck down, and why both Matt & Rich did things they said they wouldn't do.  Oh, and of course mogamecon.com
