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, Chuck Shaw, Jake Friedel & Bob 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.

Hard to believe after so many weeks of updates and short rounds of discussion, MO Game Con II is finally happening this weekend (August 12 & 13).  On this episode Rich, Chuck, Jake and Bob sit down and preview everything that will be happening at the con.  For full details and tickets, go to www.mogamecon.com.  Hope to see you all there!  And if you can't make it, not to worry, the episode is still highly entertaining (and Jake's appropriateness continues to be...yeah...not there) and we announce a con related contest you'll definitely want to hear about.

Major thanks goes to the listeners, as always, but especially this episode for making the episode possible.  Yes, apparently the game industry got lazy on us and there was like no news to report.  Thankfully your emails kept Rich, Chuck, Jake & Bob afloat this week.  In addition to that, hear the latest about MO Game Con II, GameStop insane trade credit offer (now over), and other random topics that pop-up along the way.

What can I say here...really, what can I say?  We almost didn't have a show this week due to lack of news, but then the SNES Classic got announced and we were all like "yeah, we can do this."  Then things got a bit out-of-hand, some inappropriate things were said (Jake), we heard about someone's creepy uncle (Jake), animals were touched inappropriately (Jake) and, well, yeah...Happy 4th of July!!!

This is a special episode.  How special?  Super special.  First, it is our annual E3 special wrap up show, and second, we are recording from a hotel suite because we be fancy.  Join Rich, Chuck, Matt and Bob as we break down all the E3 press conferences and discuss what we liked, disliked, and are super psyched for in the coming year(s).

Sorry for the confusion last episode with the wrong episode number.  My bad, all apologies.  Back in the saddle this week, the team of Rich, Jake, Bob & Matt discuss all matters including Game Informers Top 100 RPGs of All Time, Switch games with physical packaging but no physical game, the next Far Cry being in the Old West, Red Dead Redemption 2 delayed, MO Game Con news, and so much more.

WARNING: Unless you want to hear a graphic story about a donkey and Jake (not what you are thinking, no one saw this coming), stop listening after all the goodbyes.  The minutes afterwards are nothing but a horror show.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
