Hey Ash Whatcha Playin

[Destructoid's Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called 'Sup, Holmes?' so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says 'Sup, Holmes?' on it. This is that show. Subscribe...
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 A...
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 ...
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 ...
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 yet ultimately harmless food. Naturally, things go horribly wrong. HAWP: Dinner Metaphors [GameTrailers]
If she continues to develop at such an alarming rate, Ashly will one day have to skills to conquer this and every other dimension. She must be stopped at all costs! This week's episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? is about S...
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 explain...
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 ...
My mistake. There is a clear difference. Here is part 2 of the Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? Season 3 finale. Our characters have grown over the last few episodes, culminating in a pivotal moment for the show after which nothing...
God, I am such a BUTT! Why am I always a week late for this show!? Tony, you dumb doo-doo head! Anyway, here is the first part of the Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? Season 3 finale. There's a bunch of karate action and Foot Soldi...
It's seriously the most random thing ever. This installment of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? premiered during MAGFest, but I didn't bother to check for any new show uploads on GameTrailers until just a few hours ago. I hope you ...
["Marina Liteyears" thumbnail care of Ashley Davis] Through fire, justice is served! To punish evil forces, I have been charged! A hero in a shining armor is called! HAWP: Mischief Makers [GameTrailers]
Ashley Davis is so sweet and adorable. Except when she's not. Davis Helps Out [GameTrailers]
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 Dead: The Sacrifice [GameTrailers]
Ashly is a man's man (???). A permadeath run of FarCry 2? That's for babies. No, she's got a bigger fish to fry. Will she succeed in her quest? Hit the jump to find out. Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? Fallout: New Vegas [GameTrailers]
It's a good thing that Anthony shaved that disgusting thing off. I didn't want to say anything before, but now that it's out in the open... In the latest Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'?, the Burch children continue to pollute all that is good and wholesome in the world. Simply disgusting. HAWP: Lord of the Rings [GameTrailers]
I've got a theory about gamers. Just like with Erikson's eight stages of psychological development, I think all gamers go through stages of assessing why they play games. When you first start gaming, learning about various ge...
Here's a brand new Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? that was revealed during PAX. It's about NBA Jam, and... ... Uhhh... know what? *wipes hands* I'm not touchin' this one. HAWP: NBA Jam [GameTrailers]
People have asked Destructoid for months -- as if we still wanted to talk to the man -- whether or not former Features Editor and Hey Ash, Watcha Playin' star Anthony Burch would be lending his writing talent to Borderlands 2...
For those of you who have followed Destructoid for over a year, you might be familiar with Anthony Burch and his legendary status on this site. Between hosting Podtoid, Rev Rant and writing reviews, features and ot...
This latest installment of HAWP has got to be one of my all-time favorites. Long-time fans of Podtoid -- and Anthony, in general -- will appreciate the humor of this episode. As far as bits about terrorism go, this is probabl...
[Constructoid is a little animated video show about Destructoid editor and pixel artist Jonathan Holmes and his featured guests delivering constructive criticism to game developers, characters, and players.] This week's Cons...
I've been waiting patiently for the new HAWP to pop up on Gametrailers for days now. Turns out, I should have been watching for it to pop up on my TV instead. HAWP was featured on the "Going Viral" segment of the latest episo...
HAWP just kicked off its third season, and the opening episode has something for everyone. Sex, Violence, World of Warcraft; it's all here. If you think you knew everything there was to know about the way the Burch family ope...
So what's your New Years Resolution? Lose 20 pounds? Learn a foreign language? Find your significant other? Good luck with that. In all likelihood, you will probably derail two weeks in. Coincidentally, that coincides with M...
Finally! Here is part two of this season's HAWP finale! Anthony wants to apologize for the delay, but you can't really rush something this awesome. Once again, the sprite work (and the editing, and the sound mixing) was done ...
MAGFest is probably my favorite convention/gaming event ever. Where else can you play games for days on end, only to stop to get your face rocked off by multiple game music concerts. All my friends are there, we all drink and...
The first part of HAWP's two-parter finale is here! Actually, it was here on Friday, but I was too busy working on a finale of my own to be able to post about it here... thankfully, stuff this good never expires. And it's onl...
This year at PAX, I had the privilege of being on a panel along with the Reverend Anthony Burch, Screwattack's Craig Skistimas, and Mega 64's Rocco Botte. We discussed our philosophies on entertaining gamers w...
You could easily accuse this week's HAWP of prioritizing aural pleasure over humor. We're pretty much okay with that, considering the aural pleasure in question comes from the mind of one Danny Baranowsky -- if you've ever pl...
This week's HAWP is about Mass Effect 2 in the same way that Star Wars is about astronomy. If you follow this metaphor to its conclusion, Fuddrucker's is the Death Star! Consider that. In other HAWP-related news, the "least...
This week's HAWP is about Ico and gender politics and games. That's right -- we went from lowbrow "Anthony is gay" jokes to female empowerment in two weeks. WHAT. Ultimately, this week's episode was worth it for this comment alone: veeren that was too funny the ending was so jokes
Sorry guys! This post about this (well, last) week's episode was a little late because of some unforeseen circumstances, not the least of which being the fact that not everyone finds it funny when a sixty-year-old man te...
This week's episode of Hey Ash Whatcha Playin' deals with Fable II -- specifically, the game's ending. This is your spoiler warning!!A few months ago, nearly every video had at least one commenter who claimed that HAWP should have a spinoff with just the Papa Burch character in it. Little did they know that HAWP would essentially become that show!Anyway, hope you enjoy the episode.
I am honored to bring you this installment of 'Hey Ash, Watcha Playin.' Usually, Ashley does such things, but she is in a land without internet and so the duty falls upon me. She left me with these instructions: "All you have...
This week's episode is about: The Sims, marriage, and the difference between myself and Ashly Burch, in that order. It's one of Anthony's favorite episodes, and is kind of a sequel to his Destructoid farewell post. Kind of. Not really. Anyway, hope you enjoy the episode!  
Bullet Bill is one of gaming's most tragic characters. That may sound silly, but it's totally true! His only purpose is to kill Mario, but he's so easy to avoid. Poor guy. The proof is in this week's episode of HAWP. Watch it...
Happy Mother's Day! I know it's a little early, but the newest episode of HAWP hands the reins over to Mama Burch (who they obviously inherited their film-making skills from) in celebration. Like the good children they are, Anthony and Ashly give her episode idea a try. It's up now, and you can watch it. Just head on over to Gametrailers. Enjoy!
Will you look at that -- it's the very first machinima episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin. It is, perhaps unsurprisingly, about Sleep is Death. It is a game that you should definitely consider getting if you and a friend each...
My favorite thing about this week's episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is that more than a few commenters have championed it as the best example of HAWP's newer, fresher style, despite the fact that we filmed it about a year...
