Alright, I'll be honest, things got crazy on this episode of VGS.  We had a full cast of Rich, Matt, Bob, Addy, Kurt and the return of Jake.  Not only was that crazy, but with the next day being Independence Day, some folks were drinking and others were just in a slapstick mood.  It is one of those super fun shows.  In addition to emails, Addy reports back from NYC, Kurt talks Chicago and an amazing arcade, the release dates of Shenmue ! & II, Atari VCS Indiegogo campaign concluding, the re-release of the NES Classic, and so much more!

Yes, it is that time of year again.  E3 has come and gone.  Did you miss out?  No worries.  The crack reporting team of Rich, Matt & Bob will break it down for you.  We also read emails, discuss unpopular opinions about gaming, drift away into non-gaming conversations much to Matt's disgust, promote Mo Game Con 2018, as well as an upcoming Addy appearance, and so much more!

After a bit of a break, the VGS crew is ready to tantalize your ear holes with a brand new episode.  Once again Jake is absent, but in his place we have a blast from the past guest Kurt in his place, and he brought beer, and Addy brought Oreo cookies, and things get goofy.  In addition to emails, the crew discusses Mo Game Con 2018, Capcom's bad decisions, CoD Black Ops IIII (yeah, that is how they are displaying that) online only, just how much money Fortnite makes, 1999, and so much more.

Addy, Bob, Matt and Rich are back for another episode.  It started out about video games.  Talking new release announcements, Far Cry 5, God of War, reviewing games without playing them, game recommendations...it was going like clockwork.  Then somehow it went off the rails and we talk movies, syndicated TV shows, cats almost ruining the show, and more.

It is rare that you can pinpoint a moment where someone says something so outlandish that you can actually hear in the silence the collective think "well, this person needs to go."  This happens on this episode, and Addy said the thing.  Join Rich, Addy and Matt as they cover emails and very limited amount of gaming related news.  We resume our movie conversation as well as talk Adult Swim, TV in general, Rich gives thoughts on Wrestlemania, Matt organizes his music, and Addy says the thing that shocks Matt and Rich to total and complete disbelief (if you listen carefully, you can hear their minds crack).
