Episode 125: Game of the Year Awards III

Episode 125 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 three weeks now. Basically, take the Spike VGAs. Then throw it out, because that is getting old and rotten. 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 A THIRD TIME. We think it beats last year’s show!
