Hey, Let's Videogames! Episode 17! Great Expectations!

We've all been hyped for a game before, only to take home a big stinking turd that makes a wallet cry in indignation. Of course, we've also been disappointed by perfectly good games that just didn't meet our lofty expectations.

This episode is about how we approach game hype and expectations. What's reasonable, and what's acceptable when looking forward to a game? Is hype even allowed, or are we just deluding ourselves? We get to the bottom of things after a discussion about bathroom etiquette, Capcom games that I've been playing, some Happy Action Theater, and a special guest appearance from the Governator.

We hope you'll enjoy it. I promise to get some speech therapy someday to get that stutter taken care of. I sound like I'm constantly rapping, and you know how I feel about people who can't stop rapping.

Hey, Let's Videogames! Episode 16! The EXP Experience!

If you ever wanted to open up your own videogame bar, this episode is for you. Join us as we sit down with Brian "Danger" Vidovic, creative director of EXP Restaurant + Bar, to talk about this new gaming venture. Who doesn't love a bar with games and booze? Answer: The BC liquor board. Join us for a long talk that reveals what this fantastic dream of a business is all about and the hurdles entrepreneurs face when you add liquor to anything.

In other news: The Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo is coming up on March 17th, so go get your tickets now. We'll be there in some capacity, so if you want to say hi, you'll be able to find us. D has informed me that any shirts we wear with HLVG on them will be pink. I ran out of veto power some time ago, so this beast is now largely his, and that includes couture. God help us.

Hey! Let's Videogames! Episode 15! Our Favorite Things!

Our second podcast of 2012 kicks off with a rundown of what we've been up to, leading into a talk about our favorite games. What goes into deciding our favorite games, and how often do we go back to them? Both D and I have different views on the topic. I'm sure his are wrong.

We also talk a bit about Skylanders. I can't find an Air-type Skylander anywhere. This is getting ridiculous. I work hard for a living, and my wallet still cries whenever I happen upon a figure I'm missing.

We hope you enjoy this episode. Don't forget to comment with your Russian Roulette predictions for the next show. Tell us who's going to get shot, and on what trigger pull (1-6). We have a special guest planned for the next show, so we're going to up the stakes and offer a bigger prize. It's still a mystery, but it will include a free game (or two!) and maybe some collectibles. You gotta play to win, folks.
