Play along with us as we hold our first ever X-men draft. see rules below, and enjoy this weeks episode of the Weekend Bang!
The X-men Draft
Any Marvel character that will be drafted has to have once served on the X-men.
Any draftee must be considered to have their original powers. example: Jean Grey has only the powers she was born with, no phoenix powers.
X-men from different time lines can be chosen, but once chosen, cannot be chosen again. Example: Age of apocalypse wolverine is chosen, so no one can choose any other wolverine, from then on.
Five members will be chosen by each drafter, in five rounds. Trades may be made only on the drafters turn.
Each first draft pick will be known as the team leader, and will receive an additional value bonus
You have one minute for each pick.
Each member of your group will hold a value given by “Cerebro”
If any of your team is related or has a relationship outside of the, X-men additional value will be added. Example: Married, Family, etc…
If any member of your team has had negative history with another member of the team then value will be deducted.
Proof of said relationship must be given.
At the end of the five rounds, value will be calculated, and a winning group will be chosen to defeat the enemy.

What's up Pizzas?! It sure feels great to say that after a week of VGB vacation our battery packs have been fully recharged and its time to get back to trying to jump start WW3 with North Korea and talking about video games! Aaron Carter is with me as always along with two of our regular panelists: David Ng and Alexander Baggs.
With a week off you know there is a lot to talk about and not very much time, so we jump into the top gaming stories from across the interwebz along with a spirited round of everyone's favorite uncle, Whattcha Playin'?! Where for the first time in VGB history Cory is actually playing video games.. I guess a week off can do a body good.
After the break we hit you hard and fast with a very awesome special guest named Lucas Schuneman. Now you may not know this mans face, but if you are a nerd you have heard his voice! Maybe you will recognize him as 'Papa' from Cooking Mama? Perhaps Comrad Vasquez from Tropico 4? And if you still don't know who I'm talking about how about Vice-Admiral Onigumo from a little show called one piece?! We met this man at an airport and he opened our eyes to some amazing tips and tricks of how to make it as a voice actor and he joins us to talk shop, and gives us some awesome in site to a few projects he has lined up. We went so long in the interview that we had to use the power of post production to cut it down, but fear not! The full interview will be released later on in the week.
After the interview an old segment of the show makes its valiant return, and leaves the panel is amazement and wonderosity. There was literally too much going on this week and not enough time so we had to put an extra 5 mins on the clock, I hope this doesn't upset you! And if it does well too bad, just sit back, relax and listen to this weeks Videogame BANG!
For More Lucas Schuneman:

This is it everyone, our final daily recap of our experience at E3. After having an amazing three days at the show we are finally back in our hometown of Sacramento, California. Past are the days of recording in our cheap LA hotel room and back are we to the lush studio in the great capital of California.
The final day was Aaron's official schwag hunting day, we go over all of the tips and tricks to surviving E3, our final thoughts on the event as a whole, and most interestingly Cory, Aaron, and Jada each award their E3 2014 Bangy awards and try to defend their choice as the other two VGB members try to tell them they are wrong.
VGB will be back in a week with a brand new episode of all the boys and girls out there, thank you all so much for your support of the show, until then: Don't be an asshole.

Day two is in the books ladies and germs. This time we have a little different episode than what you heard last night as we are going old school! Cory and Aaron are rocking the mics as a duo and going through a very exciting day 2 of E3. Literally everyone else is out partying it up in the streets of LA while these two losers are hanging out in their cheap apartment with some pizza's some recording equipment and loads of good times.
Aaron starts things off with his experience in a sony meeting, and meeting with his developer heroes working on Everquest Next and Landmark. Cory spent a lot of time with Activision and has all the deets on the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and Skylanders. Cory and Aaron got some time to wander around the showroom floor and played Super Smash Bros. and Fable Legends. Other games we got to play and will discuss on this show are H1Z1, the new Toad game, and what Cory believes to be the best game he's played at the show thus far: Destiny.
On top of all that the guys got a few more brushes with fame. Included in the awesomeness was Adam Sessler, John Legere, Phil Spencer, UFC Champion Johny Hendrix, Greg Miller, and yet another Black guy who was in that thing.
We have one more day to go, and many many more things to see. We hope you enjoy this show, we also have some amazing interviews that we will be posting in our overall recap of the show either tomorrow or the next day. E3 has been a surreal experience for us so far and we have nobody to thank beside you the listeners. Really thank you all from the bottom of our black empty hearts.
