Sir Aaron Carter here with an all Sac Anime episode of the Weekend Bang! Cory, Jada and I had the pleasure of going to one of the biggest conventions right in our own backyard. That's right people I’m talking Sac Anime. The sights, the sounds, and the beautiful cosplay ladies were all out in full effect and we got to spend some personal time with as many as we could. Beyond the people of Sacramento coming out and showing love, we also got to talk with some of the crem de la crem of anime and gaming voice acting community. We also find out what Homestuck is, and why the cosplay scene seems to be enthralled by it. Will cosplay boyfriends ever be so unprotective? Can Sac Anime be one of the best cons in the state? Will I ever get a chance to go speed dating where the girls outnumber the guys? All that and more on this weeks Sac filled episode of the Weekend Bang!

Join Cory and Aaron this week as we take things retro! We go from a 4-Player show back to a 2-Player Turbo edition of the podcast just like the old days. We are taking shots at Cyber terrorist group Lizard Squad, and the streamers who played into their game. We got news about No Man's Sky, Dragon Age Inquisition, Destiny, and A LOT of Nintendo news! Mario Kart 8 DLC, Pokken Tournament the list goes on and on. We do a round of whattcha playin' and discuss our first impressions of Whispering Willows and The Long Dark, as well as our reviews on The Walking Dead Season 2 finale and The Regular Show Rigby Pack.
Boy O' Boy let us know how you feel about the old skool format, next week I'm sure we will be back with the same funky fresh lineup, but for this week, sit back relax and stuff your ear holes with some VIDEOGAME BANG! (Which sounds a lot dirtier than it is)

What's up people Sir Aaron Carter here and the Weekend Bang is ready for your eardrums. Cory, Steven, and Alex all join as we look for what we want in a girl… show host. That's right we’re on the hunt to add more estrogen to the mix. Don't just think we’re all about the ladies, we also talk to Mark Hill product manager at Perfect World Entertainment about “Arc” and why you’ll want to have it to play all your free to play games. Will the VGB find a new lady host? Will she get any of the chauvinistic guy jokes? Will we scare every girl away? All that plus monkeys on this weeks episode of the Weekend Bang!

Whats up everyone?! Cory Vincent here presenting you all with the latest episode of the Videogame BANG! and it may not be what your used to. Fans of the show will tell you that despite what is going on in the world Cory and Aaron keep the shows focus on video games and entertainment. This week despite Gamescom going on in Germany and tons of gaming news to discuss it would be irresponsible for the team to ignore some of the world events going on from the relevent news going on in Ferguson Colorado, the loss of a comedic icon Robin Williams, to the bizarre story of a professional fighter assaulting a porn star and being hunted by Dog the Bounty Hunter.
It's important to have fun and relax with a great videogame or movie, but its also good to spread awarness of whats goin on in the world around us. After all the heavy world news there is a lot of stuff to discuss with Gamescom going on in Germany. Tomb Raider is now an Xbox exclusive, lots and lots of new game trailers and features to discuss and argue about. We have a new playable Silent Hill survival horror teaser from Kojima and Del Torro.
As always thank you all for being awesome, and we will see you again this weekend for the Weekend BANG!
