VGS Show 573 - 15 Years Later... (4.16.19)

In April 2004, a project called Video Games Show (VGS for short), was first posted on the web to see if people would find and listen to some regular folks talk video games. Fifteen years later and we're still talking. Join the crew of Rich, Kurt, Addy, Matt & Bob as we talk about fifteen years of VGS. We hit emails hard, we talk some news, but mostly we walk down memory road and the wild ride it has been. Also, we launch the official show Twitch channel and now you'll be able to listen in...


VGS Show 572 - The Old Moron & His Ramblings (4.2.19)

Well, it has been a bit quiet news wise since the last episode, but Rich, Matt & Addy will still keep you entertained. We got emails again, discuss multiple upcoming consoles (including one we are super excited about), hitting the game release lull time of year, how Twitch works, odd movie pairings, and more.


VGS Show 571 - Beware of Otis: The Wire Pulling Saboteur Cat! (3.19.19)

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.


VGS Show 570 - To William Forsythe, With Love, Dirty K XOXO (3.5.19)

Well, you know what happens when the crew doesn't record for any extended length of time. Yep, one of those shows. Nonetheless, the crew gets it together enough to read emails, talk Anthem taking it one step further than Fallout 76, Apex Legends making trouble for Fortnite, Panasonic no longer making blu-ray players, random Dick Tracy facts, and so much more.


VGS Show 569 - Cross-Platforming Troll 2 & Grab Bag Madness (2.5.18)

Picking up where we left off two weeks ago (it really feels like it since we left that night watching Troll 2 and started out tonight watching Troll 2 again), the crew of Rich, Kurt, Matt & Bob continue to wax poetically the subject of video games and whatever pops up in their heads. Is the latest mistake from LRG the biggest? Can Microsoft and Nintendo game hand-in-hand? Where's Baby the best $2.99 you can spend on Steam right now? Who leaves with the worst stuff at the end of the episode?...


VGS Show 568 - We Back & Off Track!!! (1.22.19)

It's 2019 and break time is over. Yes, VGS is back! Rich, Bob, Matt & Kurt return after a long vacation and get right back to work talking games and getting sidetracked.

VGS Show 565 - VGS Family is Home for Thanksgiving (11.20.18)

Wow, this was so not planned. In fact, coming off of Rich and Matt's two-man show last time, we weren't even sure a show was going to happen Thanksgiving week.

We discuss Black Friday deals, Fallout 76 release, Spyro Remastered's disc being pretty worthless, kidney stones, a grown man throwing a temper tantrum at...

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.
