Seasons Greetings Gamers!
It has been an amazing year for us at Videogame BANG! We started this podcast less than six months ago and in its short life span we have such a great time, and the show has become more successful than any of us really thought it would be by this point. Aaron and myself owe the success of the show 100% to our awesome listeners, and a group of very special friends that show up and support us either on the Mic or behind the scenes each week.
We thought it would be cool to show our crew some love so we loaded up on some Pizza's Doritos and Mountain Dew for a Christmas Party VGB style with all our friends. This week we are presenting the Nerd Reactor, Top 15 games of 2013. While running down the list we set a timer and throughout the list, randomly, many of our friends and guests from shows past enter the studio and talk about the year in games.
Legitimately this is my favorite thing we have ever done on the podcast. It was a time of celebration, remembrance, and review of 2013. A chance to talk about the origins of some of our deepest friendships, and even look a little bit into what we want to do in 2014.
Please join us in this crazy adventure of an episode and we look forward to seeing you guys and girls in 2014.

In movie news we speculate on the rewrite of Batman vs. Superman, and how Sony should proceed with the Spider-man cinematic Universe.
After the break, We are joined by the stunning Madison Motta, or as the internet knows her: @_Omga or 'Dio'. She attempts to thwart Aaron, who is on the road to win his crown back from last weeks newly crowned champion Marcicus GRIFFINDOOOOR.
We end the show with a butt load of bitching from this weeks losers, and Steven gives the listeners a very special Christmas message, from him to you.. This is one for the record books, hope you ENJOY!

Dec 13, 2013
This week, on the Videogame BANG! panel, are some voices you should recognize. Of course Cory and Aaron are in the house, and this week by their side is fan favorite David 'Diegando' Ng, and Nintendo guru Mark 'Markytaru' GRIFFENDORRRR.
All things must come to an end.. The Civil War, The great depression, and finally Aaron Carters reign of trivia dominance. This week we are joined by YouTube's very own "RealDavidWebb", see what happens, in an extremely controversial round of the trivia game. Let us know if you believe it should count as a true loss or not!
As per the norm we go through a round of Whattcha Playing and talk about the weeks biggest gaming news and events. We have a loaded agenda this week as Fallout 4 has been made everything but official, The PS4 has become the most successful console launch in the history of the world, and Robert Knepper has been cast in the show 'Arrow'.
We hope you enjoy this weeks episode of the Videogame BANG! and ecourage you to share it with your fiends, comment below, tweet us your thoughts, and as always stay frosty my friends.

Very Special episode of the show today! Why? You ask.. because this show, Aaron Carter is pulling the strings. Now I want to prepare you a little for what you are going to hear, and lay down a few disclaimers... For starters this show will not contain an awesome opening catch phrase.. I know this may upset many of our listeners. The other thing is that while we really didn't want to 'bash' the VGX we have to stay honest and give out opinions on the impressions the show left on us.. and our impression for the show is that it was terrible.
If your were one of the thousands, if not millions of people watching the VGX.. I'm sorry for your loss. The internet has spoken and the word that is most used when describing the event seems to be 'awkward'. The show featured a seemingly disinterested Joel McHale, and as always felt way out of touch with the hardcore gaming community.
Videogame BANG! Host Aaron Carter endured watching VGX twice.. in the name of research of course. This week we discuss the hits and misses, of this years VGA.. err.. VGX. From the lows of Cranky Kong, to the sweet highs of No Mans Sky top to bottom we try to make sense of this debacle.
After the VGX talk we go into part two of our hands on with the Wii U, this time focusing in on more hardcore gaming on this next gen Wii. Tekken, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and Mass Effect 3 are on the menu and boy were we hungry. We evaluate the Wii U from a less 'Nintendo' stand point and look at the titles you might play when you aren't having a party.
I should also mention that since my cohort Aaron is running the show, and the fact that he doesn't know how to tell time means the show goes a tad bit long this weekend, but he does finish strong with his very own outro line! This is an outro line you don't want to miss! All this and much much more on this weeeeeeeeeeeeks.. Videogame BANG!!!

What's Up Pizza's?!
You are in for a treat this week, the crew is firing on all cylinders, and we are not holding anything back. Cory and Aaron are joined by Steven Gutierrez and Marc 'GRIFFINDOR' Griffin. Maybe its the fact that its the holiday season? Maybe its the fact that the studio was extremely cold? Whatever it was sparked a flame.. A firey flame of frustration.
Its time that the PS4 and Xbox One gamers end the civil war.. for too long have we been focusing on each other while the group who calls themselves the 'Master Race' has lurked in their pretentious shadows. We call out PC gamers this week, and issue a few challenges. To the PC gaming community we say: 'Come at us bro's'
We geek out over the rumors of EA Canada creating an open world Star Wars game. Also the gang discusses micro-transactions in the new era of gaming and whether the help or hinder the industry.
As Always the crew runs through americas favorite past time: WhattchaPlayin', covers all of the weeks top gaming stories and after the break is the most EPIC ROUND of the trivia Super showdown in podcast history.
Better grab your Party Sized bag of Doritos and you 40oz Mountain Dew, because this week ish gets real!

What's Up Pizza's?!
You might think its weird that four grown men and one 16 year old kid all gathered together and spent an entire evening playing Wii U... The 16 year old being Cory's cousin visiting for the holidays from the armpit of California, 'Fresno'.To be quite honest I think we were all surprised that this was how we were spending our Thanksgiving weekend. The Wii U launched over a year ago now, and strangely everybody knew about it, but not many really cared. As far as console launches go it was extremely quiet. It was this reason the Videogame BANG! team was set out on exploring the Wii U for ourselves and trying to figure out the eternal question: Is it fun?!
New addition to the VGB squad Mark Griffin, is a huge Wii U enthusiast. Armed with a stack of Wii U games and Zelda branded console, the team focused on the five player couch co-op experiences that the Wii U had to offer...
Immediately following the session, Cory, Aaron, David, Mark, and Derrick locked themselves in the studio. We discuss and debate the Wii U, whats awesome, what sucks, and what Microsoft and Sony can learn from Nintendo!
Gird your loins because this one is going to get a little crazy!
