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!

This is the final day of our three part exploration into the Sacramento Wizard World Comic Con. The gang had a lot of fun, and made a lot of awesome new friends in the world previously unknown to us. In this episode we describe the sights sounds and tastes of our first con experience. We talk about some of the very awesome people we met this weekend and we talk about some healthy tips and advice for you, if you plan on attending one. WE hope you have enjoyed this series, as it has been a tremendous opportunity for the BANG! Gang. We want to thank the good people at Wizard World, as well as Nerd Reactor for trusting us enough to send us to this con to not sully their amazing reputation.

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.

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!

What's going down folks Sir Aaron Carter here to bring you another banging episode of VGB’s Weekend Bang! and the usual suspects join me again. Cory Vincent’s back from his trial for stealing things, Steven Gutierrez hops on the mic to let people know he’s still in love with Ellen page, he doesn't care what she says and Madison Motta’s here telling people all the great spots to hide your weed.
Kicking off the show I try to pick the Bang Gangs brain a little about black characters in video games. Who are some of the big names and why aren't there more, I mean come on its black history month. When that got out of control we switch gears and move on to some tantalizing video game news stories. We spitball the ideas of Gears of War making its resurgence, What new features are making their way to Minecraft on the xbox 360, and then Cory tries to take over the show by interjecting a series of questions, as if he’s Alex Trebek.
After manhandling the show away from the clutches of Cory I, Sir Aaron Carter bring us back on track with a little more new. I expose the Bang Gang to a new game, for them, Guns of Icarus, and we discuss the upcoming Transformers game that might make you fall back in love with those robots in disguise, that is if you’re not Madison. Finally to wrap up the show we search the depths of Nerdreactor.com to bring you the “In Case You Missed It” for the week and give out thoughts on the new cast of the future Fantastic Four reboot. Will more Marvel movies me a hit in the box office? Will Cory stop smoking the ganja? Will Maddison ever except Transformers as the dominant race of robots? Will you finally understand what's going on in Sir Aaron Carter's head? All that and a crazy amount more on this week episode of the Weekend Bang!
