As princes of the Awkward Game Players' Society, the boys over at GameLife haven't really had much by way of competition. They've got the market cornered. So you can imagine my surprise when I was referred to a production entitled Video Masters TV -- could it be true? Another awkward gaming show on the internet? Holy crap, I can hardly wait! I watched and sure enough the host, John Gibson, didn't quite fit the role as defined by G4 or anything, but imagine my surprise when I learned that he was not only intelligent, but being an older gamer, extremely well informed on classic gaming. Hell, one of their episodes even has a Sin and Punishment review. Think of it as the US counterpart to Consolevania.
The show is a bit rocky at points, but it's extremely well-executed for an amateur gig -- hell, I dunno if you could even call it that. Gibson's been working the homebrew gaming TV gig since 1995 (episodes which can also be seen on YouTube) and, judging by the guy's age, he's probably been playing games since the industry was just getting to its feet. Watch, enjoy, and be sure to check out the slew of other Video Masters TV episodes, both recent and decade-old.
Hit the jump for onesuch hilarious clip from Gibson's 1993 show, Game Power, where he totally dorks out over Metroid passwords and Super Castlevania IV. Check this out! It's totally fresh!

Ckarasu So, SMT IV: Final looks like it'll make fans of the older games happy. Especially fans of SMT 2.Flegma Do games go in cycles like style? I mean, I think I can just as well play my 1993 Space Hulk (PC CD) instead of getting the moderately new Space Hulk instead.Occams Naruto 4 installs on my PS4 and it updates. Game says it can't run story mode during installation. Nothing's installing though. Restarted PS4. Reinstalled. Nothing. Fucking dumb.StriderHoang This plays in my head every time I tell myself to stay determined.Gamemaniac3434 Tonight, I learned what Flanx and MrNovember sound like in discord, listened to the best idea for a movie ever, and learned a little more about the depths of human depravity.
A night well spent.
Fuck us all. Ckarasu So, the artist that they used for Street Fighter 5's story mode(the arcade one) is kinda...not good. Go look up Laura's CGs. Colors are pale, and proportions sometimes end up kinda bonkers. Like, "extreme hourglass figure" level of bonkers.FlanxLycanth Justin Timberlake blasts Kuma in the ass and dies.ooktar I'm loving these fighting game elitists trying to give me shit because I criticized Street Fighters Fight Money business model.Nathan D Thanks to Dtoid I now have this gif in my life, and I can't stop laughing. I seriously can't get over it.
Jiraya Finished SOMA today , was able to do a second run without enemies with the "Wuss" mod, found it actually more frightening has you get more time to think about what is really going instead of doing hide-and-seek with the AI (Alien Isolation I miss you) Mike Wallace I stayed up late last Saturday writing a Dead Space 4 proposal outline. Solved every plot hole, had plenty of badass moments. This is the state I live in, people. Torchman WHY DO THEY GET SOUNDS BUT PIKACHU AND CHARIZARD CAN'T. WTFPixie The Fairy Finished my Storge set and 4/5ths of that was on the clock today o_O I also got a dragonlord eyepatch, which is totally practical covering the right eye when Cyndel's hair covers up the left eye.Lawman So Zack Furniss told me I should play Dying Light on Hard. Guess who's never listening to Zack Furniss again? :-/EdgyDude Deadpool spoilers: He gets cancer.beargreasey So Kanye just announced his new game, Only Once. It looks beautiful and personal. It's just a shame that I still have no idea what it is.CoilWhine I dunno why people are getting so huffy about Windows Store / XbOne Quantum Break crossbuy. It means double the gamerscore for me, and AW and AW:AN are rereleasing on the One so I'll have owned them 3 times over. Great games.Nekrosys I once considered pitching an idea for a Dtoid Australia podcast, but then I realised it'd probably just be Zyk and I getting drunk on Foster's and complaining about Atlus for half an hour each week while incessantly calling each other cunts.Parismio New Splatfest is Pokemon Red vs Pokemon Blue. Im Blue Team bitches!Jed Whitaker Been sick but these pills are fixing me right up.
