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.

Rich, Matt & Jake return to the table ready for another VGS.  In a news heavy episodes, the guys discuss the remaining video game releases for 2016, how a political view could mean trouble for Oculus Rift, some sweet game deals, Super Mario Maker 3DS only running in 2D, the final stop in the Curt Schilling/38 Studios journey, Digital Homicide committing virtual suicide, and much more.  We also have some emails to discuss as well.

Overclocked crew is back for another non-focused ramble session.  Ron, Kevin, Josh, Keith and Rich discuss many things including, but not limited to, the Fall TV season, Comic book movie universes and schedules, planning conventions, not believing everything you see on the Internet, and much more.  Be sure to like the MO Game Con Facebook page for all the latest details, including a location and date set for MO Game Con II: The Wrath of Con.

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.

Ron, Kevin, Keith, Rich, and special appearances by Nick Kraftor and Big Josh (and a super brief appearance by Addy, who was having technical issues) rant and rave their way through a new episode of Overclocked.  Topics discussed include the Apple press conference, cell phone technology in general, PS4 Pro, movies, PHX Fan Fest update, bidets, the amish, some 'Would You Rather..." and much more.

The VGS crew is back and ready to entertain.  Please wish Matt Gurley a happy birthday and hope he gets well soon (which explains his quieter self on this week's episode).  Rich, Matt & Jake (with Chuck in the background) discuss No Man's Sky (both the game and exceptions made to refund policies), the latest Humble Bundle, the upcoming Sony new PS4 announcement, Nintendo practices, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 being the creepiest game ever, plus much more.

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.
