Episode 150: Game of the Year Awards IV

Episode 150 of Show Me Your News…how did we top 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 Spike VGX. Then throw it out, because that was really disappointing. 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 FOURTH TIME. We think it beats last year’s show!
