Truth and games. Game reviews, news, and tangents.

I sat down with my buddies Tadhg Kelly and Robby Zinchak and talked retro games on a side stage at the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo. People quietly watched as we discussed old game memories, 5 1/4 inch disks, and gave our thoughts on the retro movement within the game industry.

Today we sat down with Tadhg Kelly (OUYA, EDGE) and discussed all the ins and outs of each E3 2014 press conference.

Note: We were at a fancy place where the jazz music was a little too loud (sorry!), but there was some groovy conversation so we put it up anyhow. Rock n roll right? Well .. more like smooth jazz, but you know what I mean.

F it.

A podcast about video games! Carlos sat down with Taylor and Tony of the Grave Plot Podcast to discuss horror video games. We talked Friday the 13th for NES, Silent Hill, Dead Rising 3, Resident Evil, and even some Splatterhouse. Also we delved into 'which is scarier: horror videos games or horror movies'. 

Along the way I think we might have also stumbled upon a new tagline for Grave Plot .. you'll see.

Question stages this episode:

Turbo (Retro) Stage : We ask the question - What old school horror game did you play back in the day?

Super (Battle) Stage: Horror video games vs. horror movies

 

We'd love to hear your thoughts, and everyone's take on the different stages each week. Drop us a comment on iTunes, facebook.com/videogamebreak, Twitter @videogamebreak, or on our site videogamebreak.net!
