Sir Aaron Carter here to Smite you down with this weeks weekend bang! The league of legends addict Cory Vincent takes a break from his computer to chat it up with us, David "Gando" Ng brings intelligence and a pentakill to the show, and Jerry P joins and tries his best to gank everyone.
In the first part of the show we take on two of the MOBA giants, Smite, and League of Legends, and throw them into the arena. We go over the various areas of each game to try to convince people out in the internet world why you should be playing one over the other. Pay close attention you might just get surprised.
Rounding out the show, as we usually do, we bring you the latest in the gaming geek world with "bang bites" this weekend we cross all over the board from augmented reality to friendship loss. Will Microsoft build a competitor for the google glass? Will Jerry gank anyone? Can Naughty Dog ever keep a real friend? All that and tons more on this weeks Smite-filled episode of the Weekend Bang!

This week on the Game BANG! We keep the momentum of amazing guests rolling with Michael John Mollo, composer of the beautiful Strider reboot by Double Helix. I am of course Cory Vincent and with me as always is my co host Aaron Carter along with David Ng and Jada Rina.
The big story of the week is of course that facebook bought oculus rift for a whoping 2 BILLION dollars. This news has been polarizing to the gaming community. Opinions of optimism, opinions that the rift is now dead, and opinions of indifference. Well worry not because VGB is here to try and make sense of it all. We also discuss the casting announcment from Elder Scrolls Online, all the sweet details in regards to the new Batman Arkham Knight. And I think the highlight of the show is when we cover the 2014 Game of the Year Goat Simulator
Al that and much much more on this weeks Videogame BANG!

Sir Aaron Carter here bringing you another exciting episode of the Weekend BANG! Today we visit that wild west of the videogame world “Indie Games” that's right people the gameBANG! gang and I visit some new indie titles that I think you should know about, if you don't already. Joining me as ever Cory Vincent adds the occasional pun or two to the show and the crickets have a field day whenever he does. Jada puts in her two cents on proper Japanese, and to keep things just a little creepy Jerry P tags along with his voyeur cam in hand.
The first half of the show we kick it indie style as I bring to your attention some of the new hotness that should be in your face. We discuss this craze that seems to have taken developers by storm called Voxel, and try to figure out why America hasn't been funding this stuff. We also find out one of Cory’s deep psychological problems with NPC’s in video games. Lets be honest a nervous breakdown is coming soon from that guy.
We couldn't call this an indie show without talking a little about cosplay right? well I guess we could, but we didn't and to join us in our talk we got one of the big names in the cosplay scene Mr. Ryan Frye. He decided after meeting us at Sacramento's Comic Con that the Videogame Bang crew was awesome, as most people do think, and that he would grace us with his presence, via skype cause of Jerry. He gives us the deets about a brand new social media site that bringing cosplayers and like minded people together. Here a clue, it isn't E-harmony, and gives us a little insight into the creepy fans of cosplayers. Another clue, its Jerry. Will this site take off like Facebook? Will me japanese ever improve? Did Cory have friends as a child? Will Jerry be arrested for taking bathroom pics of men? All that and tons more on this weeks episode of the Weekend Videogame Bang!

What can I say people?! This episode you are about to behold is pure unadulterated Videogame BANG! After the biggest weekend of our show we were all a little comic con hung over. With the con itself and all of the articles we are working on lets just say the responsibility to come up with show notes fell through the cracks. As they say in Hollywood, the show must go on, and so it did!
This week we have your hosts Cory and Aaron spitting mad videogame knowledge, and sitting in on the panel is Steven and David. We just kinda go with the flow this week. We talk about some of the big video game releases of the next week. We also reflect a little more on Wizard World now being a few days removed.
As always folks we want to thank you all for your support of the show. Seeing all of the messages and support you guys have shown the last week definitely inspires us to keep this show going. This is probably the most raw show we have had since our very first episode, so in a weird way its my favorite.
Check us out on:
And if you use an Apple device it would mean the world to us if you rate our podcast!

Day two of the Sacramento Wizard World Comic con was in full effect today! From early morning to late night the BANG! Gang was out cruising the floor and checking out all of the panels at Sacramento Wizard World. We share highlights and some low lights from our first con experience. One thing we all agree on is that the con atmosphere has been so inviting. No drama, all just amazing people united in our love for fantasy and the unknown. Hope you enjoy this episode of the Videogame BANG!

On the show as always are your hosts Cory Vincent and Aaron Carter, joined by Steven and Jada. On the eve of Wizard World the crew is firing on all cylinders getting prepped and ready for three days of madness that lies ahead. And the anticipation is making the Bang Gang get a little stir crazy.

We also discuss Cortana coming to the Windows Phone platform in the coming months. Grand Theft Auto is back in the news with a free update, and Titanfall also talking about updates.. the not so free kind. A man stabs another man with the Master Sword from Zelda and Twitch is coming to your phone... yes.. now you can stream countless hours of Flappy Bird from anywhere!
Coming off of a heated game of D&D the crew still has some fresh wounds, and nobody holds back this week, whether we are arguing basic computer knowledge, League of Legends, or the quality of questions in this weeks trivia... oops did I say trivia?! YES! IT's back the staple of every great podcast is the trivia game and we are dusting this pig off.. You wont believe who wins, and how much the losers bitch about it!

What's happening people Sir Aaron Carter bringing you another thrill filled episode of the Weekend Bang! Ever by my side, but you may not recognize him because of his evolution, Cory Vincent joins to brag all day about his League of Legends ‘Pentakill’. Jadarina’s back defending Cory’s League of Legends play, and Steven Gutierrez hops in to try to destroy the League of legends play, only cause he cant seen to get the basics down.
In the beginning of the show I, Sir Carter try to describe why I feel League of Legends isn't the game for me, as the rest of the crew, minus Steven of course, tries to defend their addiction once again. Lets get one thing straight people, League of Legends is an addiction. Moving past the in depth discussion me and the bang gang tackle some of the latest new stories around the net. Steam drops a bomb on the world, which I think is a point for the steam box. We find out what can cause 200,000 people to follow one twitch account. Plus we delve deep into the Marvel and DC universe and how they are spreading into the TV space.
Wrapping up the show we bring it all back to the games and visit that age old war of Microsoft vs Sony, as Nintendo just holds up the cards as the ring girl. With Sony giving up free full games can Microsoft match them? WIll league ever prove worthy to be a real E-sport in Aaron’s eyes? Can Marvel take viewers from the DC in the TV world? Will Steven ever give League of Legends a chance? Is there any chance of Cory being rescued from the grasp of League of Legends? All that plus a film trailer preview on this crazy episode of the Weekend Bang!
