What Summer lull? This week, we’re talking about the crazy new Ouya console and the Diablo III endgame controversy. We also recast the upcoming Superman movie and report on our time with Tribes: Ascend, Quantum Conundrum, and Mighty Switch Force.2 Comments

On this week’s show, we try really hard to connect our love for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight movies with a conversation about video game culture. We’ve also got talk of Mega Man, Final Fantasy Tactics, Metal Gear, Lego Batman, and the salvation of G4TV.3 Comments
We chatted a bit about StarCraft: Ghost last week on the show–one game that unfortunately won’t be gracing anyone’s backlog any time soon. Not that…Comments closed

Sony’s purchase of cloud-gaming company Gaikai has us wondering about the future of shiny plastic discs. Also: THQ’s near-cancellation of The Devil’s Third gets us talking about some potentially good games that never saw the light of day.
In the Hangover, we offer a quick update on our Summer Backlog Project, survive The Walking Dead: Starved for Help and the tap to the beat of Final Fantasy: Theatrhythm.
Lastly, we’ve got your Tweets and comments, a reminder to set your DVR for the new season of Breaking Bad, a celebration of 25 years of Metal Gear, and a fun foodie recommendation.2 Comments

We’re getting all hot and bothered this week, and not just because it’s 103 degrees outside. The release of Lollipop Chainsaw prompts a decidedly PG-13 conversation about sex, sexuality and video games. NSFW!
Paul and D.J. are working their way through their backlogs and offer quick updates on Psychonauts and Bioshock.
We’ve also got thoughts on the new Mass Effect ending, Andrew Garfield’s pre-Spider-Man work, and the tenuous threads between Dane Cook and Capcom.8 Comments
Each week in Play More Games, members of the VGH team will chime in on the new video game releases that have piqued their interest.
Hey, a new 3DS game! It’s a sure sign that a console has finally gained a foothold when it gets its very own, awkwardly titled Final Fantasy spinoff. For the 3DS, that’s Final Fantasy Theatrhythm. (Or Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, if you prefer.) I need only the slightest excuse to pick up a new music game, so fill one full of classic Final Fantasy songs and it’s a no-brainer. The gameplay looks similar to Ouendan or DJMAX Technika, which have you tapping on-screen targets or sliding the stylus along a track in time with the music. But, drawing from its namesake’s RPG roots, you’ll be doing all this while guiding a party across a Final Fantasy overworld, or tapping notes to help your party battle monsters. That’s cool, I guess, although it’s really going beyond the call–all they had to do was give me some stuff to tap while
male cheerleaders chocobos and moogles dance in the background and I’d be set.
Look for my impressions in next week’s episode!Comments closed
As you already know if you’ve checked out Episode 59, we’re launching an all-out attack on our backlogs as we get into the middle of summer. We even came up with a ridiculous name for it, and I figured, while we’re at it, let’s have a huge leaderboard graphic, too. So now, here we are.2 Comments
