VGS Show 600 - 600!!! (10.17.20)
So, it was supposed to be a Halloween show for show 600, but instead it became way more about show 600. 600 episodes is a ton. Join Rich, Matt and Bob talk about 600 episodes, some very special guests drop by, we talk emails, Microsoft partnering with GameStop, the expense of being collectors, and big plans for show 601.
A very special thank you to all our listeners. Whether you've heard all 600 episodes or just 1 episode, we appreciate you and thank you very much.
VGS Show 599 - "The New Hotness" (10.3.20)
What starts off as a cold open, the crew of Rich, Bob and Matt discuss many things on this latest episode. Topics include Matt got himself a Nintendo Switch, Rolling Stone's Top 500 Albums, obscure 80s horror/sci-fi films, our take on Microsoft buying Bethesda, PS5 & Series S/X news, Among Us from out of nowhere (the new hotness), and other general discussions.
VGS Show 598 - And Silence Was Broken (9.19.20)
After a bit of a break, and no one announcing anything, the crew is back with much news. Rich, Matt & Bob breakdown the announcements of the Xbox Series S/X, PS5 models, and Nintendo announcing many games. We also pay our respects to the DS family. Along with all that, Bob & Rich get into a long discussion about watching movies in the 80s. It is quite the return.
VGS Show 597 - The Epic 2020 P*ssing Contests (8.22.20)
Join Rich, Bob, Matt and Kurt as they discuss two epic p*ssing contests in 2020...Microsoft vs Sony and Epic Games vs Apple/Google. We also discuss other gaming news and devote a good chunk of time talking about our favorite examples of songs that make movie scenes go from great to amazing. Let us know if we missed any by emailing email@example.com.
VGS Show 596 - All Comes Back to Tim & Eric (8.8.20)
How to describe this show? Kinda of difficult to put into words. Here it goes. It has Rich, Matt, Bob and Kurt in it. They start off discussing what they've been playing/watching lately. After that they go deep into the Adult Swim rabbit hole. Then I seem to remember a bunch of cross searches with imdb.com and Wikipedia. It just got weird after that. A strange, but fun journey. Enjoy.
VGS Show 595 - Let's Just Forget (7.25.20)
Wow, a bunch of people are this week's VGS. Join Rich, Matt, Kurt, Bob, Jake and special guest James Lee as they rant and rave on. Topics include the "Mario" NWC cart for sale (and we have owner James tell us all about it), emails, Xbox Games Showcase, Nintendo Mini Direct, retro games being a seller's market, Sphere (1998), and so much more.
Also, if you are interested in more information or to make an offer on the "Mario" NWC cart, please look up James Lee on Facebook and contact him direct for details.

But great so much fun to listen to
One of the best video game podcasts on iTunes. They give you the news and releases while adding jokes to keep the listener entertained.
Like a well-cut diamond The Video Games Show shines from all angles. It is well-hosted, well-produced and many times funny as all hell. Everything you would want covered, is covered. Technical, theory, industry, media, it's all here.
Hosts Rich Bergin and Nick Kraftor have character and charisma that compliment each other splendidly. As a team they are terrific. They have a love and respect of video gaming that's authentic and you can tell. What's also great is that when they speak about something, ie a video game review, they will actually tell you why they liked it or didn't like it. No one listener has to agree but it's great to hear an actual thought process and relevant criticism of this industry and it's products by two normal gents who have gamed for over twenty years and dropped as much money over that time as the next kid has. Makes a listener feel like they speak for you and with you -not at you.
