    VGCC Episode 381: The Gamer's Christmas

    The pod is BACK with a very special live-to-twitch episode. Scott, Elvie, Maverick, and Christine are live and must have their mistakes broadcast to the entire world if they say anything incorrect about FFXIV Endwalker, Inscryption, Shin Megami Tensei V, Halo Infinite, Tales of Arise, Forza Horizon 5, Critters For Sale, Hermitage Strange Case Files, and Ruined King. Plus, our ongoing coverage of everything happening with Activision/Blizzard, Sony's Gamepass competitor codenamed Spartacus, Take-Two taking too many copyright claims, The Game Awards, #GollumGame, Swarovski X Halo crystal figurines, and our favorite video game wardrobe changes.

    VGCC Episode 380: Shin Megami John's Back

    VGCC Episode 380: Shin Megami John's Back

    That's right folks, John is back on the pod and he's here to talk about how he's been playing Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. Maverick is also on the show for a deep dive into Shin Megami Tensei V. 

    The week in news was a weird one as we go into the delay of Halo Infinite's co-op and forge modes,  Rockstar saying they are going to fix the hilariously broken GTA Remastered while also selling the original games again. A lot of new games are coming like the Warner Smash clone WB Multiversus and the new Dead by Daylike Dragon Ball: The Breakers. Earthwork Jim is also coming back to television and we can be excited because Dougie Tennapel doesn't have the TV or video game rights to the character anymore. In darker news, Streamlabs finally got called out for the fact that their entire  business is based around ripping off other streaming tools and Bobby Kotick is a nightmare person who knew about everything and never did anything about it.

    VGCC Episode 379: Don't Buy Fight Knight

    Content Warning for abuse, sexual assault, physical assault,  domestic abuse and more from 4:30 to 42:00

    It's another big news week this week and Scott and Maverick are here with the proper Host/not host dynamic to go through all of it. Our biggest story of the week is the incredibly disturbing story of abuse coming from the  developers of Fight Knight. With the heavy stuff out of the way, we go into Discord's tease of NFT's, X-Box's twitter getting deleted, Among Us and Baba is You are getting updated, and the complete messes that are the Popeye game and the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy remasters. Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 along with Jump Force are being removed from digital storefronts while 1 vs 100 is coming back. The Hat in Time developers are teasing something and I Maed a Game with Zombies In It just popped up for free on steam.

    The dynamic duo have also been playing a few games, with Maverick digging deep into Trails of Cold Steel 3 and Scott really just wanting to spend all his time in Inscryption when he's not playing Cruelty Squad.

    VGCC Episode 378: PVPilled

    It's a no guest double host episode with Solon and Spencer! Spencer has been catching up with Halo and gives us a historical perspective on it. Solon takes us through the puzzles in unpacking. And we discuss the practice of ongoing games with Destiny 2. We get a look into NEO: The World Ends With You and Solon is forced to pick a side in the great Hot Wheels Unleashed versus Forza Horizon 5 war. Plus some fun at the expense of New World's troubled launch. League of Legends is airing a tv show on netflix. Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker has been delayed, there's a Devil May Cry anime coming out, there is Resident Evil Village DLC incoming, and Ubisoft and EA have decided to throw all their lot with the blockchain.

    VGCC Episode 377: A Scary Amount Of News

    VGCC Episode 377: A Scary Amount Of News

    It's the spookiest time of year and Scott and Elvie are here to talk about the games they've been playing. Scott's been playing Inscryption, Back 4 Blood, and The Good Life while Elvie's been playing Haven Park, Detention, Ashwalkers, and The Longest Road on Earth.

    It's one of the biggest weeks of news in a while as WB announced a Smash Brothers clone called Multiversus, Sony had a Star Ocean full of news drop during their State of Play, Among Us is adding new roles in the next content update, and in sadder news, PAX South is coming to an end and apparently Pokimane owns EVO. Oh, you thought I was done? Amazon's New World is a complete mess, Blizzard officially changed McCree's name, Blizzcon was cancelled, and Bobby Kotick took a pay cut in a failed attempt at good PR. Far Cry 6 is marketing itself horribly, Resident Evil had a big week, the Wu-Tang clan are making an RPG and Shoji Meguro is leaving ATLUS to make his own game. Speaking of new games, A Quiet Place is getting a game tie-in from iLLOGIKA, Digimon Survive is now coming in 20222 and ConcernedApe has the Haunted Chocolatier in the works. We're also getting a new third party DLC character in Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and Melty Blood: Type Lumina's DLC Rollout is starting this winter.

    VGCC Episode 376: The Jackbox Party Podcast

    The VGCC podcast is here to check in on the brand new Jackbox Party Pack title. Yes there's more, but it's mostly that. Scott dug into the Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and Inscryption demos and chipped away at The Good Life. Maverick digs into Metroid Dread. Elvie Grows Up in Growing Up, is Ambitious in Ambition: A Minuet in Power, and questions the libertarianism of Mr. Prepper.

    Plus, the Animal Crossing Direct, Pazio has a union, NFTs are getting owned here and there, and Paimon f***s up.
