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.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday and received loads of gaming goodies.  Kraft and Rich gather at the old home studio (aka Kraft's place) for a shortened episode of VGS.  The boys talk the holidays, get to news and have some good times.  I'm sure you are wondering what was going on with this episode if you didn't read the description before hand.  Basically, this is VGS Unplugged, which basically means we didn't have time to do post production work due to very hectic schedules this week.  So the options were either do what we did and get a show out at the usual time, or risk not having a show out until the end of the week, if not later.  I think you will agree we made the right call.  For now, have a fantastic New Year's and we'll see you back in the studio next week.

ATTENTION!!!  PLEASE READ BEFORE LISTENING!!!  Okay, in case you didn't listen to last year's special, you need to go back and listen to that one first.  Second, and more importantly, this episode is a Bombed Out episode, which means it is uncensored and unedited, so it is very not appropriate for children that shouldn't be hearing profanity and that may still believe in Santa Claus.  You've been warned.  Now listen and enjoy.  Merry Christmas and Happy Bang Holidays from the crew at VGS!!!

MURDER!!!  Wanna know more?  You need to listened the whole way down.  So, the first 15 minutes are a cluster F of audio issues that are eventually fixed.  Then Kraft, Rich, Keith and Ben from Well Bred Rhino play a bunch of mulitplayer games while riffing them as well as random talk about games.  Rich then has a retro movie review that not only makes Kraft extremely happy, but sets off a powder keg in studio.  You just need to hear this to believe it.

Kraft and Keith are absent, Rich, Bongo and Big Josh are in as the VGS crew got...well...Lohan'd.  What does that mean?  You have to listen to find out.  In addition to news and emails, we are introduced to the new Random Fact of the Week segment, Rich reviews The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Bongo reviews Call of Duty: Ghosts, and we even get time for a bit of Would You Rather.  We apologize for the odd hum in in the background, which we will blame on poor studio wiring, but stick with it as this show gets a bit crazy in a good way.
