Whats up my Hangover Pizza's... Cory here and this week VGB and Nerd Reactor presents to you the annual Videogame BANG! Christmas Party where we are going through the Top 15 video games of 2014 as voted by the staff and members of Nerd Reactor, Videogame BANG! and various other friends and family of the show.
We have bee hyping the show for weeks now, and it is finally here. I cannot pretend to let you know what has all been done and said on the show this week because I honestly cannot remember. The alcohol was a flowin' and ol' Cory woke up with a headache and about 100 text messages and tweets about things I may or may not have done the night before.
Just like last year we Aaron and I are running the show while we have guests rotate in and out every five minutes or so. People you have heard on previous episodes, some people who are brand new, My very own wife drops by.. And at the very end the entire crew joins us on the show at the same time to lead the listeners in a verse of Silent Night.
This caps off what has been a truly memorable year for Aaron and myself. We cannot thank the people who make this show happen enough. The listeners, the panelists, the special guests, Nerd Reactor, and many many more. We absolutely cannot wait to see what happens in 2015. Oh yeah and the list! Let us know via twitter or comment what you think about the rankings, what was your personal number one?

Amid last weeks episode where we counted down the top 10 controversies of 2014, little did we know that we would be struck with even more 2014 gaming controversy immediately after!
We are talking about a few hot button topics this year that are a little difficult to discuss, but should be addressed. For one the VGB crew will be tackling Sony's Seth Rogan/James Franco film The Interview being pretty much Blacklisted in movie theaters. We are also talking about the latest game to get popular for being controversial 'Hatred' and their drama with Steam Greenlight.
Sit tight because its going to be a bumpy ride, Cory Aaron, Jada, and Steven are going to be as serious as they possibly could be (which is not all that serious) on this weeks Videogame BANG!

Cory joins in and we even discuss a controversy involving him. Making a return after a long hiatus Alex Baggs and Jada pop by and give their two cents,and after you hear it you’ll know why they went on a long hiatus, they might need another one after this show. Will discussing some of 2014’s controversies break the entire show? Can Ubisoft rebuild the empire that is once had? Will 2015 be filled with even more controversies that 2014? All that plus major announcements on this weeks Weekend BANG!

What's up Santa's?! The year is coming to a close and It's time to get reflective about 2014 in video games. We have a Five guys Burgers and Fries episode for you, featuring hosts Cory and Aaron along with Steven, David, and Eddie. The reason we have Five guests has nothing to do with a scheduling issue and miscommunication though, it was 100% intentional!
We are talking Christmas songs that should not exist, we play a riveting round of Whattcha Playin', and we end on a sour note running through a top 10 list of 2014 as told by Cap Price at GamingStairs.com. Is the list accurate... kinda... Do we agree... not really... Is his reasoning well written and punctuated... not at all.. nonetheless it's fun to dumpster dive on the internet every once in a while.
As always follow us on twitter, Facebook, and Tinder. Be sure to let us know what you think is the worst game of 2014!

The gaming world is in peril and the Weekend Bang is here to save the day! Sir Aaron Carter is back after a hiatus, and has gathered a ragtag group that consists of Cory, David Ng, and Noel Beltran, all to smite down some of the terrible trends that plague the gaming world. We also discuss the reason why you should support you local comic shops, or any local business for that matter.
In the second half we pick up where we left off, but get sidetracked with a heavy Borderlands discussion that just might change the way you look at Borderlands for the rest of your life. Sir Carter isn't here to make you think like him, he’s here to make you simply think. Will you free yourself from the shackles of gaming oppression? Will Roland be resurrected in the Borderlands universe? Will this episode change the way you view gaming as a whole? All that plus a “laugh sneeze” on this weeks episode of the Weekend Bang!

Sir Aaron Carter here and if you're into anime then you're in the right place, at least for now. Todays show is all about Anime inspired games, basically the ones that come from overseas because America doesn't do that. The ever excited Cory Vincent is tagging along as one of the biggest anime fans in the group, Jada’s on board sacrificing a birthday to join us, and the prodigal son Noel Beltran sits in and tells us where the hell he’s been, hint it has 31 flavors.
In the second part of the show we get to talk to Dawn M. Bennet. You may know her from her spectacular voice acting on Freedom Planet, but now shes stepped into the anime world, voicing Frosch in the huge anime hit Fairy Tale. Will she share her secret to success in the VO world? Will Cory contain his love of Japan and all anime things? Will I Sir Aaron Carter ever stop saying “Terrible”? All that plus food on this weeks episode of the Weekend Bang!

Whats Up Pizza's!? I know what your thinking: Hey! This isn't a full blown episode of the Videogame BANG!?! And you are correct! This weeks show has an awesome guest that we had to make a slight production schedule change, which meant that this weeks show will be slightly delayed. In the meantime Aaron Carter and myself found ourselves with a fantastic interview opportunity with a man named Bill Jemas, former Vice President over at Marvel Comics and currently working with Take-Two interactive.
There was a lot to cover here with Mr. Jemas and he allowed us to pick his brain on a cavalcade of interesting geeky topics about his time at Marvel, his influence on their current state of business, as well as some exciting new things that Take-Two Interactive has lined up in the world of comics starting with a new take on the Night of the Living Dead.
Huge thank you to the listeners, giant thank you goes out to Bill Jemas for his time and just as a reminder keep your eyes peeled for this weeks Videogame BANG! featuring a crazy cool guest!

Don't expect the standard VGB format because this week all hell breaks loose with Ashly. We start of with a little light hearted conversation about #Gamergate and Kickstarter breast implants before the break and then hold on to your hats because we are playing an all new game, the likes of which you have never heard on the podcast that features acclaimed rapper O.G. Maco.
Legitimately one of the most fun shows we have ever recorded to date and we want to extend our most humble thanks to Ashly for hanging out with us losers and being on the most genuine people we have had the honor of having on our show.

Hold on to your hats people because we have a new episode of the Videogame BANG! that is already an instant classic, because we are focusing in this week on game developers, specifically two of whom have become great friends of ours and both have created some of the most innovative games available online today.
First off we have Cyber Heist's Zac Truscott. We interviewed him some months past about a game that caught Cory and Aaron's attention as an extremely compelling multiplayer game that gives teams different Roles with the same goal! Cyber heist also happens to be a free game so go download it now here:
After the break we interview Raphael Van Lierop from Hinterland Studios in Canada. It's pretty safe to say that The Long Dark is one of the fastest rising indie games on steam, so Raph returns to the show for some big updates, plans for the future of the Long Dark, and perhaps most importantly he allows Aaron to relive the botched #FreezingMyBallsOff audition from last time we spoke!
For Early Access to the Long Dark: http://store.steampowered.com/app/305620/
Will Aaron choke again?! Who knows? Find out all that and more on this weeks Videogame BANG!!!

Cory Vincent and Sir Aaron Carter are rocking the ones and twos this week with a few VGB favorites Jada Rina and Alexander Van Hornswaggle Poppadopolous.
This weeks show gets a little tech heavy as we are discussing the Alienware Alphabox, as well as Windows 10, and the punishment of four very naughty hackers that got busted pretty hardcore for some serious internet crime.
After the break the crew puts on an old hat, bringing back a segment of the show that many though was long gone. That is right you are going to have to listen to the show to find out, because there is no way that I would ever spoil it for you in this blurb.. Its the Trivia game!!!!
Also our semi occasional reminder to please rate ans subscribe to the show if you like what we do. It really helps the team out.. Also remember that trolls are people too.. We are stuck with them... Just like they are stuck with themselves...

Sir Aaron Carter in the building with the Weekend Bang! Feeling like you don't know what to play right now? Well the weekend bang is here to rectify that by giving you a few game reviews to give you an insight into the worlds of games. Cause we all know people don't check the internet. Cory, Steven, and oddly enough Alex join me as we cover just a small sections of games that I believe should be reviewed in depth, mainly Destiny. We also cover a little gaming etiquette, your basic do’s and don’ts, that might make you a better person when it comes to playing video games, most likely it won’t. Can Sir Aaron Carter be more of a gentle man? Will Steven ever be good at video games? Will people ever get the full Destiny sandwich Bungie has promised? All that and more on this weeks criticizing episode of the Weekend Bang!
