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!
