Silent Hills is canceled and Konami is in the middle of self-destructing and we’re just sitting here StreetPassing.
Randy plugs in his Xbox One to make sure it plays video games, but alas, all it does is play the new Star Trek trailer (which looks suspiciously like Star Wars). Meanwhile, Paul locks himself in a room and D.J. jumps off a cliff to avoid being bled on by Superman.
Paul and D.J. get deep into Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate fashion and this season’s hottest armor skills. Meanwhile, Randy prefers to stay out of the spotlight with Monster Bag. Also, Pillars of Eternity, Mario Party 10, and smartwatches destroy civilization.
Randy seeks relief from his third unrelenting week of The Order: 1886 by playing a game about boxes. Paul searches for the correct sequence of buttons to beat Helldivers, D.J. spends the weekend watching a Call of Duty video, and Final Fantasy XIV… ends?!
We get in touch with our inner time traveling tweens in Life Is Strange episode 2, the most steampunk game since The Order: 1886. Also: Why the Zelda delay is good, why Master Chief is bad, and a new Mass Effect?
We’re doing #MetroidMarch right by replaying the series’s best. Like Metroid: Code Name: STEAM, Metroid: Q*bert, Metroid: Monster Hunter and the game many consider an all-time classic, Metroid: Jak and Daxter Collection.
Just how far is one man willing to go to attend PAX East? When traveling through a late winter snowstorm by train, the correct answer is “approximately 400 miles”. Join Randy (and VGH Community Contributor Chris Gregory) this week as he checks in from the frozen wasteland that once was Boston, MA, with thoughts on Splatoon, Steamworld Heist, We Happy Few, Just Cause 3, Invisible Inc., and more – including a full report on the 100% Smash Mouth-less Cards Against Humanity panel.
Please enjoy this episode full of PAX East hype that we recorded before they canceled the East Coast. Also: skateboarding in OlliOlli2, French lessons, an MMO memorial to Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek Online, Ironfall: Invasion puts the “gears” and “war” into Gears of War, the Final Fantasy XIV community loses its collective mind over a card game, and we try to uncover the origin of #MetroidMarch. (Spoiler: We invented it.)
It’s the Vita’s 3rd birthday, so naturally we celebrate by playing 3DS games all week. More Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, some Majora’s Mask, and Tetris Ultimate. Also Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, which is on neither 3DS nor Vita.
Randy rewinds time to save Clock Town in the remastered N64 classic, The Order: 1886, and Paul and D.J. get their claws into Capcom’s latest hunting action game, The Order: 1886. We also wonder what’s up with Peter Molyneux (creator of The Order: 1886).
Where were you the night before Nintendoom? We were getting our affairs in order playing Freedom Wars and copying our 3DS games onto a series of progressively smaller memory cards. Randy and Paul return to/are still Shadow of Mordor. D.J. doesn’t talk about Final Fantasy XIV.
Once a year, a legendary lobster crawls out of the sea to tell tales of time-traveling high schoolers and historical steampunk lions. Unfortunately, we missed the lobster again. Fortunately, we’re perfectly capable of telling you those stories ourselves.
Live from San Antonio, VGH is at the first ever PAX South expo! We’re joined by some special guests to talk about the games we played, the costumes we saw, and, of course, Yasumi Matsuno.
After a nearly two-year hiatus, we’ve finally released a new show. Coincidentally, Randy and D.J. are excited about a potential new Rock Band, while Paul tries to remember the name of that game he played with a plastic guitar. Also: PS1 classics Suikoden I and II, The Marvellous Miss Take, Shadow of Mordor, and 1000 dead Mr. Game and Watches in Super Smash Bros.
On the way to 2015, you suddenly find yourself trapped in the realm of Nintendoom, where nothing fits in your pocket and every Amiibo is Luigi. Your only chance of escape lies in the machinegun-toting hands of—who else—Batman (voiced by Troy Baker).
It turns out there were a few games in 2014 that weren’t completely bug-ridden and disappointing! (Oops—positivity!) We scrounge up a handful of our absolute favorite games from last year—some from totally unexpected places.
Happy New Year! Join D.J. as he rings in 2015 with a million-year prison sentence, courtesy of Freedom Wars.
Happy Holidays! Now listen to Paul ramble for 15 minutes about random stuff. Woohoo!
It’s here: Our biggest end-of-year drunktacular yet, featuring all your calls and questions! Grab your beverage of choice and help us bid farewell to the nightmarish hellstorm of 2014.
