Best Video Game Podcast Tries PlayStation VR, Gets Romances, Chases Old Guys at Tokyo Game Show

By Heath | October 5, 2015 at 11:33 am

You can download the MP3 right here (right click, Save as…) or stream it below with YouTube or MixCloud.

PlayStation VR, Romance, & Giant Airships: TGS 2015 Podcast 1 of 2 by Best Video Game Podcast on Mixcloud

The Tokyo Game Show was huge and exhausting. In this podcast, we talk about the most unique stuff at the show, beginning with PlayStation VR and then moving to some patently Japanese stuff, like a kabe-don experience and a game in which you hunt old men to give them girly makeovers. And then the mobile game that ended up with the show’s most impressive booth.

You can download the MP3 if you wanna slap this thing on your music player of choice, or stream it with the YouTube embed above. Contents:

1:00 – PlayStation VR. The good, the bad, and the motion sick.
(Danganronpa, Summer Lesson, Final Fantasy XIV)

18:30 – Kabe-DON!
(Love games letting you meet a real live prince at TGS)

35:15 – A game that could only happen in Japan.

44:00 – Somehow, the most elaborate booth was a damn mobile game.

In the follow-up episode, we’ll talk about the big games we played, such as Phantasy Star Online 2 and Gravity Rush moving from Vita to PS4, Star Ocean 5, Metal Gear Online, then give out some arbitrary awards and all that good stuff.

Thanks for listening. Here’s a YouTube embed if MixCloud isn’t doing it for ya.

You can make sure this podcast keeps existing by supporting it on Patreon. We like making podcasts. We also like having electricity and food. Thank you!
