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.

Finally after some delays and whatnot, the Golden Bang Howdy Awards are upon us.  In addition to emails and news, the crew of Rich, Jake, Chuck, Matt & Bob sit down, comb through email votes, Facebook votes, and each of their personal opinions and come up a list of nominees.  Be sure to keep an eye on the FB page for your chance to vote on each of the awards.  Also, we pretty much lose our damn minds twice during this.

Well, there was a game plan for this episode, mostly featuring discussing Golden Bang Howdy Award nominees, but that fell apart.  Why?  Because Nintendo took over all the minds of the gaming industry and we just had to discuss it ourselves.  Join Rich, Bob, Jake & a returning Matt as we discuss all things Nintendo Switch.  We also discuss other things as well, some stuff about video games and some stuff we just got totally off topic.  Anyway, if you want more Nintendo Switch talk, or just hear four bitter guys' opinions, this is the episode for you!

The VGS crew welcomes in 2017 in a big, bad way with the first episode of the year.  First off, the one and only Mr. Nick Kraftor joins Rich, Chuck and Bob in all the excitement.  The best way to describe this episode is a cross between VGS and Bombed Out Radio.  We go on some very odd rants on this one.  Best just take a deep breath and dive in headfirst.  Also, listen and and check out the VGS Facebook page for a chance to win a 1 Year PlayStation Plus card!!!

(Recorded 12.13.16) I think the intention was for this to be a Christmas special episode, but it did not pan out that way.  In fact, there is 95% less Christmas in this Christmas episode than any other VGS Christmas episode.  That being said, it is still a darn good episode.  Join Rich, Chuck and Bob as they discuss news, the return of a certain awards show, 30 Seconds of Bob, and so much more.

Post Thanksgiving and hot on the heels of Christmas, the crew returns for a new VGS.  Rich, Chuck, Jake & Bob sit around the table and discuss all kinds of crazy things, from child birth, Jake's obsession with Limited Run Games, Sony's keynote, one crazy Metroid code that can have killer consequences, why we all might go to Build-A-Bear, and so much more.

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.
