Episode 185: Eight is Enough (The Final Episode)

It’s the final episode of SMYN. Also, maybe some Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain? But mostly, things get emotional, as guests from Show Me Your News’ past stop by to thank Peter “Youko” Spezia and wish him well in future endeavors.

Episode 175: Game of the Year Awards V

Episode 175 of Show Me Your News. The Game of the Year Awards. How did we compete with last year’s award show? While this isn’t a live episode, it is something Youko has been working on for about a month now. Basically, take The Game Awards. Then throw it out, because as good of a start as that was, we can be more entertaining. And then go buy some SMYN Game of the Year Awards. Except you aren’t buying it because it’s free.

BIGGER. BETTER. MORE BADASSADRY.

Youko was trying for fangasm here. FOR THE FIFTH TIME. We think it matches last year’s show!

What was the process like for recording the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U 50-Fact Extravaganza? Youko, Solharath, Eevee, and CyberLink420 leave no stone unturned in this discussion with the man behind the voice that Smash fans now know well!
