HAWP: This video is about BOOBS

Continuing the tradition of only being tangentially related to the videogame an episode is named after, the latest Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? uses the new Tomb Raider as a springboard into a discussion about women in games and the role of w...

HAWP: Rip Van Ashley wants to play Saints Row: The Third

The latest episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? premiered at PAX last week before being uploaded to GameTrailers. I held off posting it until now out of anger and resentment from not being able to attend the show. It definitely wasn't beca...

HAWP: It's not always about the violence

There's more to A Game of Thrones than violence and rampant sex, just like there's more to Hey Ash, Whatcha' Playin? than violence and ... rampant sex! In this case, the Burches have a debate on whether the Game of Thrones videogame is any...

HAWP: Burch has finally crossed the line

I know the Burch siblings have done some incredibly wrong things in Hey Ash, Watcha Playin'? in the past, but this... this is a whole new ballgame. Take the "Shift" mechanic from Driver: San Francisco, give that ability to Ash, and watch h...

HAWP: The splendiferous, monumentous E3 2012 trilogy

Because Anthony was stuck rubbing his nuts on the Borderlands 2 booth for most of E3, it was up to Ash to get the Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? video content up this year. She manages to touch upon all the necessary bases: Papa Burch spotlight...

HAWP: Anthony Burch has no shame

So typical. Anthony Burch has a platform upon which he can share his insight into the value of videogames as a medium, yet he would rather throw all his credibility away for some cheap cheesecake exposure. He's not even all that hot, that ...

HAWP: Anthony needs to learn to nut up

Seriously, even Blavis has got more cojones than him. He needs to learn to stop taking part in Ashley's various activities. The latest episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? contrasts sandbox and linear game designs via food metaphors. Yummy...

HAWP: Ash and her sticky fingers

HAWP: Ash is always right

Any opportunity to watch Anthony Burch get served is worth your time. Then again, since he co-writes Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'?, he's kinda serving himself, so he still wins out in the end. I think. In any case, Ashly explains in a most elo...

HAWP: The healing power of Rayman Origins

I was sitting here, thinking to myself that it's been a while since someone made light of cancer and the elderly. Then the Burch siblings came along and made my world all the brighter. Except for the death part. That sh*t's depressing as f...

HAWP: Anthony is a drama PRINCESS, not a queen

HAWP: Why is there a bird on your shoulder?

All Ashly wanted to do was have a family fun night, but Anthony had to be a prissy little b*tch. Look at Papa Burch! He's totally a team player, not to mention "sassy and fierce." Oh, Papa Burch... Heads up: beware the Tank! HAWP: Left 4 D...

HAWP: Blavis likes Anthony's pube beard
