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.

Stay up to date with what Peter does next: @smynyouko

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!

In this first part of this long episode, discussion includes Microsoft and Sony, whereas part two includes Nintendo, Third-Party, and much more! Fans gave their bold “Big Boss Predictions” and then followed it up with even crazier “Kiefer Predictions,” after the news broke that Kiefer Sutherland would be the voice of Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid V. After E3 happens, we will be back next weekend with the winner of our Yes/No contest in order to discuss all that happened at the Electronic Entertainment Expo! But for now and for posterity, enjoy this hype-filled episode! Youko, Super, TonyTH, and all our fans who called in break down the latest news from the gaming world!
