The Video Games Show (podcasts)
The Video Games Show (or VGS for short) is a weekly gaming and pop culture podcast hosted by Rich Bergin, Matt Gurley, Bob Friedel and Kurt Bowers Combining extensive knowledge and experience in gaming, movies, music, comics and pop culture, VGS will provide a comical look at all things and go off topic many, many times.

Who knew The Last of Us show would be so polarizing to one VGS crew member.  Join Rich, Kurt, Matt and Ben as the crew catches up on their lives and all the news in the gaming world.  Topics include E3 loses the Big 3 (Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony), PSVR 2 launch concerns, games leaving Xbox 360 Market Place forever, Goldeneye woes, a Nintendo Direct happening this week, RetroBit reveals the Big6 and so much more!

Rich and Kraft settle in alone for an old school, two man VGS.  We hit up the news and emails per usual, BT returns with an all new audio quiz, Kraft updates us on the upcoming Tortured For Tots charity event, and Rich brags about his new gaming rig PC.  So stop playing Fapping Birds for just awhile and take a listen.

With Gameapalooza still fresh in our minds Rich and Kraft are still a little burnt out from putting on the event.  That  being said this is a "fun" show where we just act ridiculous.  If you are looking for news, you might want to look elsewhere this week.  If you are looking for off the wall stupidity, you found it.
