Joe and Jason welcome skynet and algorithm based overlords; Joe says people have to be better people; Crowley points out that Xbox doesn't have VR by way of Nintendo Labo; Epic's launcher is the most invasive program on your computer; and Jason let's his Simpson's flag fly. We then give an in-depth retro-review of Star Wars: Jedi Academy and end the show giving our impressions of the first few hours in The Division 2.   OUTSIDE SOURCES:   https://bgr.com/2019/03/15/no-mans-sky-beyond-free-update-online-multiplayer/ https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/15/18267821/valve-steam-review-bombing-policy-remove-score-count-moderation https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/16/18268890/valve-steam-user-tribute-new-zealand-shooter-removed https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/07/nintendo-unveils-cardboard-labo-vr-headset-for-the-switch.html https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-03-16-valve-says-it-doesnt-want-epic-or-anyone-messing-with-steam-user-data https://www.gameinformer.com/2019/03/16/the-simpsons-to-air-esports-episode-this-weekend

Rank #2: Episode 73: Show and Tell

Podcast cover

This episode probably should have been titled "Show and Yell." After discussing Activision Blizzard's woeful financial situation, they go down the rabbit hole of whether game designers/creators should unionize. This rather lively discussion finally gets put to an end and the three of them review a couple of sniper mobile games, before reviewing separate games. Jason reviews Foundation. Joe reviews Apex Legends. And Crowley reviews Civilization VI.    Outside Sources: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.gamespot.com/amp-articles/xbox-live-coming-to-nintendo-switch-ios-and-androi/1100-6464772/ https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2019/02/microsofts-xbox-live-is-coming-to-switch-ios-android/ https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/07/activision-blizzard-has-lost-half-its-value-but-traders-positive-before-earnings.html https://gamerant.com/apple-activision-acquire/ https://www.gamespot.com/articles/xbox-one-x-fallout-76-bundles-discounted-in-the-us/1100-6464775/ https://www.pcgamer.com/fallout-76-player-glitches-inside-sealed-vault-63-begs-bethesda-not-to-ban-them/

We discuss the gaming news from around the web, and find out that Kotaku isn't all bad...just 99.9% bad. We also take a look at Kingdom Come Deliverance 1yr later.

This week, Crowley goes off. Without Joe there to keep him in check, Crowley let's gaming journalism have it with both barrels. In his sights are Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Kotaku. Jason and Crowley cover gaming news including: Metroid Prime 4 news, Facebook ripping off kids and their families, EA's Anthem woes, and another nonsensical article from Kotaku. We then give an in-depth review of Soul Calibur VI!

This week, we do a full review of Ace Combat 7! The good, the bad, and the Top Gun quotes! We try to deep dive into one of the shallowest games we've ever played. From the single player, to the multiplayer, to the virtual reality...we have you have covered! We give a big shoutout to Morgan McFly for the new intro and outro...THANK YOU MORGAN! We also cover all the gaming news worth talking about this week: the confirmation of the PS5, Forza cutting off a potential Carlton lawsuit, the future of virtual reality, and even Kotaku idiocy. Yeah, we even debate about what constitutes a "gamer."    Outside Sources: https://www.trustedreviews.com/news/gaming/ps5-release-date-price-games-news-rumours-specs-2993694 https://comicbook.com/gaming/2019/01/18/sony-playstation-5-help-from-users-survey/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2019/01/14/heres-how-xbox-and-microsoft-win-the-next-console-generation/ https://www.businessinsider.com/microsoft-removes-forza-horizon-4-dances-as-fortnite-lawsuits-grow-2019-1 https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/best-vr-headsets-ces-2019/ https://uploadvr.com/vr-steam-grew-2018/ https://www.gamespot.com/articles/red-dead-2-facing-legal-action-from-the-real-pinke/1100-6464391/ https://kotaku.com/i-cant-stop-buying-resident-evil-4-1831898574

This week the boys welcome EGM founder/CEOm, podcaster, and Arcade1up superfan Mike Rondeau to the show. They tackle the Kotaku AMA, how Fallout76 is still finding new ways to be terrible, Bungie breaking up with Activision-Blizzard, Division 2 going to the Epic online store, and streamers getting tons of money from their friends. Once they've finished with the news, they let their guest loose. Mike preaches the virtues of cabinet and retro gaming while Crowley tells you why you should spend your money more wisely...and buy cigars. Joe doesn't care and Jason loves nostalgia as much as Mike.

We kick off the show giving a shoutout to Stargate Pioneer for all of his help. We officially welcome Jason to Bad Gamers Anonymous this episode. He shares with us his history of gaming before we talk about what we've all been playing since Christmas. Somehow, we've all been bamboozled into playing SWTOR, and the guys absolutely destroy it...kind of...we still might play it. Then we cover all the gaming news from the first week of 2019: Bethesda settling a lawsuit with Warner Bros., Jason thinks Half Life 3 is happening (he's wrong), Cliff Bleszinski is on broadway, and a Blizzard shakeup. We then dissect why Kotaku hires dumb people before Crowley praises old people playing games and we talk about the MadBox console announcement. We cover digital download vs physical copies of games before we briefly talk about 2019 games we want to play. We were way wrong about Ace Combat...it is NOT a PS4 exclusive!

Crowley and Joe welcome new co-host, Bad Gamer Jason to the show! Once the pleasantries are over, the trio get down to business and the best video game awards show done on a podcast gets underway...THE CROWLEY'S! Game of the Year, Dumbest Animal in a Game, and Best Stogie Smoker are just a few of the awards handed out this year. The Crowley's were recorded with a LIVE discord audience. Be sure to check out the #the-crowleys-chat channel in our Discord. http://eargluemedia.com The trio announce nominees and winners in the following categories: Best Stogie Smoker in a game: This award goes to the character who smokes cigars  with the most class and style. This character most epitomizes what it means to be sophisticated tool. Dumbest Animal in a Game: This award is for the animals that we love to hate because they act dumber than a bag of hammers. Controller Killer Award: This is awarded to the game that forces the player to release all of the pent up angst and rage they hold inside, scream at the game for being terrible, and throw the obvious issue (their controller) across the room. Best XBOX Exclusive Best PS4 Crossplay Games Nobody Played: This award goes to the game nobody has heard of and even fewer have played, but the VGAs decided that everyone should have. Best Game that Wants to be an RPG:  This award is for the little Role Playing Game that could...not.  While maybe technically an RPG, this game embodies neither the spirit nor polish of a real Role Playing Game. Worst Dad Award: This goes to dad who managed to screw up their offspring the most.  Worst. Dad. Ever. Copy and Paste Award: This is the award for the game that phoned it in, made a paper copy of itself and released with some slightly new artwork and maybe a tweaked game play element. Best Beard or Facial Hair: This award is for the character that grows the most epic or stylish facial hair in a game. Poop and Play Award: The game best played on the throne. Best Mobile Game: Yes, there are actual games on mobile. We found them, and we gave one an award. Hottest garbage: This award goes to the game that came out of the gate stinking worse than two week old Thanksgiving turkey left in a trash bin in an unseasonably warm month Best Music:  This award is for the game that wowed us with its musical score.  From the deep, dramatic strings to the ear worm catchy pop tunes, the game wouldn’t be the same without this music. Best Role Playing Game:  The game that makes the player feel like they are in total control of their game character and gives them fantasies of cos-playing at the next San Diego Comic-Con. Best Action Game: This is the award for the game that gets the blood pumping and the reflexes humming.  Or is it the blood humming and the reflexes pumping? Best Remake or Port: Know what would make this game better?  Move it to a different platform or give it shiny new graphics! Best Sports game: Go Team! Best Shooter: Guns, explosions, only the twitchiest reflexes will survive. Best VR Game: Immerse yourself in the game and then vomit shortly afterward. Art Direction: This award goes to the game that brought us the most beautiful and well designed visuals. Best Voice Acting: This is for the voice actor that brought the character to life through the spoken word. Best Moment: This is for that part in the game that blew us away, tied everything together and made all the past frustrations worth the journey. Best Story: This is for the game that hooked us early and kept us hooked until the end; the game that we didn’t want to stop playing because we wanted to see what was around the next corner. Best Villain:  This award goes to the character that we longed to see defeated.  The character that gave us drive and purpose and who we celebrated when they fell. Best Character:  This is the award for the character that we most related to, the one we rooted f

Crowley welcomes Joe back to the show and announces that Joe is one of the new, permanent co-hosts of BGA! They also announce the Ear Glue Media black tie event of the year...THE CROWLEY's! It's like the Oscars...but better...and for video games...so not at all like the Oscars. Join BGA LIVE December 30, 2018 at 7:00pm CST on their Discord voice channel for the Crowley's! Once the duo take care of a few housekeeping announcements they jump right into the news of the week. Crowley offers Gene Simmons of KISS, a spot on the podcast during the Crowley's. If you know Gene Simmons, TELL HIM! They then welcome Captain_Nill_Skill into port. The Captain takes on Fallout76, battle royale type games, and harassment in gaming. Crowley deftly ignores the Captain's Question and instead focuses on how he was right. Joe tries in vain to keep Crowley's ego in check.    External Links: https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/18/entertainment/carlton-sues-fortnite-video-game/index.html https://www.cnet.com/news/floss-kid-jumps-on-fortnite-lawsuit-wagon-over-dance-moves-carlton-2-milly/ https://www.tmz.com/2018/12/18/alfonso-ribeiro-stole-carlton-dance-courteney-cox-eddie-murphy-fortnite-lawsuit/ https://globalnews.ca/news/4751346/gamer-charged-alleged-assault-pregnant-woman-streamed-online/ https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-12-video-game-players-frequently-exposed.html https://www.cnet.com/news/youtube-says-people-watched-50-billion-hours-of-gaming-videos-this-year/ https://www.newsweek.com/red-dead-online-gold-bars-prices-store-microtransactions-micahtransactions-1259957 https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news/gamers-choice-awards-lawsuit-1203089901/ https://www.clickondetroit.com/1d4/1d4-gaming/playstation-4-game-detroit-become-human-sells-more-than-2-million-copies

Crowley welcomes back Joe this week, along with special guest Adam Santiago. The trio give their picks for last minute Christmas gifts for that gamer in your life. They discuss the latest news: Fallout 76's dumpster fire heats up, Kotaku being Kotaku, and is Red Dead Racist or are gaming journalists trash? They then review the mobile game Star Trek Fleet Command and Crowley gives you the low down on the sweet science according to Creed VR. They wrap the show by giving their most anticipated games of 2019. ANNOUNCEMENT: Bad Gamers Anonymous, an Ear Glue Media Podcast, is proud to announce the first annual CROWLEY'S, LIVE in their Discord Voice Channel on December 30 at 7pm CST ( http://eargluemedia.com ). After becoming tired of the Video Game Awards being completely predictable, Bad Gamers Anonymous is doing their own yearly awards. Winners of each category will receive a CROWLEY.  *LEGAL DISCLAIMER* There is no physical award. The prize is the knowledge that your game is held in the highest (or lowest, depending on the award) esteem possible by Bad Gamer Crowley.   Outside Links: PS4 Milestone: https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/1056357/PS4-Sony-PlayStation-news-milestone-Microsoft-Xbox-One/amp  Fallout 76 Glitch: https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2018/12/05/a-fallout-76-support-glitch-leaked-players-personal-information-for-all-the-world-to-see/#7826dc3b78d6  Is RDR2 Racist: https://amp.pastemagazine.com/articles/2018/11/red-dead-redemption-2s-redface-proves-how-far-game.html  Kotaku doing Kotaku: https://kotaku.com/help-i-accidentally-bought-mario-party-instead-of-smas-1830937662  Steam Revenue Sharing: https://techcrunch.com/2018/12/03/valve-changes-revenue-sharing-tiers-on-steam/  Epic launches Steam Competitor: https://www.theverge.com/2018/12/4/18124203/epic-games-fortnite-valve-steam-game-store-distribution-unreal-engine  Game Awards: https://m.ign.com/articles/2018/12/07/the-game-awards-2018-all-the-winners
