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!!!

VGS Show 541 - Fresh Straws for Ryan Knight (10.17.17)

VGS Show 525 - And the Winner is...Wait For It...(2.21.17)

After a three week absence (thanks Valentines), Rich, Chuck, Bob and Jake return for an all new VGS episode.  The buys finally award the Golden Bang Howdies, but before getting to that, there is heavy discussion about the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo as a whole, weirdest things Bob and Jake ate growing up, and some other side topics.  Hey, this is what happens when the guys don't get to record for three straight weeks.

VGS Show 552 - Oh Crap-com... (5.22.18)

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.

VGS Show 522 - My Sh*t's Hip (1.3.17)

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!!!

VGS Show 584 - A Decade of Games (1.7.19)

After the holiday break, the crew of Rich, Addy, Kurt and Matt are ready to storm the world of video games once again!  This episode we discuss our top 10 games of the decade, which generates a number of "oh yeah, that was in the last 10 years..." moments. Apologies that the audio is slightly off compared to the norm.  Our main recorder failed during recording and we had to use the secondary recorder to still have a show this week.  Thank you, and enjoy.

VGS Show 521 - Most Non-Christmas Christmas Special (12.13.16)

(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.

Few things put panic into the heart of Rich as a wire pulling, claw digging feline.  But that is neither here nor there.  A lighter crew this episode as Rich, Matt & Bob talk away about all things.  This week's topics include Google's newly announced "console," how are wallets and accounts are taking a pounding from all the limited print releases dropping right now, a new Wii U game coming next week, comic book movies, Tarantino, and much more.

Once again we have a full house this week, where so many things will be discussed, impressions will be made, minds will be shattered, and tables will be pounded upon.  For the crew of Rich, Bob, Kurt, Matt and Addy, nothing is sacred, nothing is off limits, nothing will be not somehow mixed with a Cosby impression.  Oh yeah, it is a show that should have probably been only 50 minutes long, but we ended up with an hour more.  How do we do it, come on in and find out.
