VGH #11: Cartoon Animal Abuse

VGH #11: Cartoon Animal Abuse

We’re back! Taking inspiration from their favorite books, movies, and TV shows, the VGH crew is wishing, hoping, and dreaming of video game adaptations that probably won’t ever see the light of day. Plus: Paul finally gets bitten by the DQIX bug, D.J. leaves the house, and Randy is easily offended. In the community theater segment, we hope to not get sued by the creators of Sam and Max.


We’d love to get your reviews on iTunes and the Zune Marketplace. We’d love it even more if those reviews were positive! If you’ve enjoyed the show please take a moment to follow the links and say something nice about us. Perhaps, in an upcoming episode, we’ll take a little time to say something nice about you in return?

Note: I seem to have melded elements of both X-Files video games into a single game in my head. The first game was primarily a point-and-click affair featuring some agent that wasn’t named Mulder or Scully. The sequel, subtitled “Resist or Serve”, was a more straightforward Resident Evil-style third-person shooter. I still maintain that both of them were pretty crappy, though. -Randy

Note #2: Sorry about the delay on getting this episode done folks, my apartment really did almost burn down! -Paul

Note #3: When I went to Southtown Arcade, they didn’t have any Namco games and I mentioned that in the show, but since then they’ve set up Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion machine. Could Soulcalibur V: Arcade Edition be in their future?!? Follow them on Twitter for more updates on their latest games! — D.J.

    Rad that you guys are promoting Southtown =)

    Chinatown Fair Arcade in NY just recently closed, but a lot of that scene has moved over to Henry Cen’s new arcade/gamecenter called Next Level.

      Awesome! Thanks for the tip. I’ll be in Brooklyn for a show in a few weeks and I’ll try to make time to check it out.

    I miss the ol’ arcade days. Had good times at the Sega World and Namco Land pumping a shit ton of money mostly into Daytona USA and Killer Instinct.

      Ah, Daytona. I remember thinking the first time I saw it that game graphics couldn’t possibly get much better! (Just look up a screenshot to understand how hilarious that is in retrospect.)

    Also, Dexter was proficient in some type of martial arts. I can’t remember the exact episode where is was mentioned, sometime before the end of season 2.
