VGH #262: You Just Stole My Onions!

Kitchen thievery in Overcooked, naked ninjas being shot out of cannons in Ninja Launcher, and Adam Jensen’s sunglasses. One of those things is not like the other… but to find out you’ll need to listen to this week’s episode! Also: Randy is still (not) dead (hopefully) and we flashback to Flashback: The Quest for Identity.

VGH #261: Straight Outta XCOM

D.J. risks prison time playing AM2R, the Metroid II fan remake. Without Randy around, the conversation quickly devolves into Final Fantasy and Star Trek, but it’s mostly because Paul played Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander. Mostly.

VGH #259: Fill Him Full of Juice

D.J. returns to the Deep Dungeon to find a new way to play Final Fantasy XIV, then rolls a healer in popular Internet meme, Overwatch, because maybe there’s more to gaming than killing people. Meanwhile, Randy kills people with zillions of grenades in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided yeahhhh siicckkkkk

VGH #257: I Shoot My Little Laser

No Man’s Sky is out so we can definitively answer everyone’s remaining questions, like: Are there really 600 trillion planets, or did they just copy/paste the same 3 over and over? How do I shot gun? And which multiplayer mode is best? D.J. goes swimming.


August 11, 2016

VGH #256: Champagne Problems

Randy pops heads off (and back on again) in the 70s sci-fi-vania, Headlander. Paul is still playing only Monster Hunter. And D.J. would have finished Last Window by now if protagonist Kyle Hyde could drag himself out of bed at a reasonable hour.

VGH #253: Filthy Man

Pokemon Go? Check. Monster Hunter Generations? Check. Final Fantasy XIV? Check. Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel? Check. Yep, sounds like another show from your friends at Video Game Hangover. Also—this should be good—Randy plays Bloodborne.

VGH #252: Weiner Dogs Everywhere

We look up from our Pokedexes just long enough to avoid being hit by oncoming traffic and also to discuss the Pokemon Go phenomenon. Also, did we play Resident Evil 7?

VGH #251: Cool Game

As seasoned video gamers, we know a little about what makes a cool game. We strive to talk about only the coolest games every week. Like Boxboxboy. That’s cool. Inside? (That’s a game.) Also cool. Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard? Sorry. That’s not a cool game.

VGH #250: Wall Chicken

Paul plays Bloodstained and reports on the state of its found cuisine. Randy tries several extremely Japanese games, with mixed results. 13 years later, D.J. is ready to pass judgment on Deus Ex: Invisible War. Meanwhile, nobody played Mighty No. 9.

VGH #249: Blips and Bloops Remix

The blips and bloops are back! We take a listen to some of our favorite game music mariachi covers, Groove Coaster remixes, and songs appearing in games that rhyme with “Unsmarted: Jake’s Fmortune.”
