VGS Show 555 - The Return of a Friedel (7.3.18)

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...

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 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.


VGS Show 550 - Addy Almost Gets Tossed (4.10.18)

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...

We've been threatening it for some time, but it finally happened. Yes, in a two week period the world of video games gave us nothing, so rather than do no show or a short show, we brought back the tradition of the Bombed Out Radio podcast and instead talked about whatever we wanted. While movies definitely dominated the episode, we also touch on fast food, TV, our childhoods, and yes, even video games crept into the room. Join Rich, Matt, Bob and Addy for a bunch of random talk, or as we...


VGS Show 547 - The Episode Where Many Things Dropped (2.27.18)

So, this is one of those episodes that we have now and again. We have a plan to talk just video games, yet we kept going onto side roads, off topic rants, local geography, and so on. These are always fun ones. Don't worry, there is still plenty of video game talk along with so many odd turns. Enjoy!

VGS Show 543 - All Hail Corey, He Brought the Food! (11.28.17)
