#Hey Ash Whatcha Playin

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: What sort of a (wo)man has bats on the brain?

Booyah! Not this time, baby! I caught the new episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? the day of! Sure, I'm posting the video the day after it originally went live, but it's better than a full week later! Anyway, this is one my favorite HAWPs...

HAWP: Anthony Burch's Diablo III intervention

God, friggin'... AAAAARGH! Another late HAWP post! Christ, why can't I ever catch these on time!? If they were on YouTube, I'd get direct email notifications of new uploads, but noooooooOOO!!! The Burch's are doing this to me on purpose. I...

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...

Sup Holmes: Anthony Burch cuddles my mind

[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 to the podcast...

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

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 Skyrim's thiever...

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

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 will ever be t...

HAWP: Anthony is such a drama queen

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 Soldiers, Anthony ge...

HAWP: Why is there a bird on your shoulder?

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 can forgive my ...

HAWP: Papa Burch in drag

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: The ultimate permadeath run

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]

HAWP: Blavis likes Anthony's pube beard

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 an...

Ashly Burch wants to know how games saved your life

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 genres and engagi...

HAWP: Baby's ruinin' my hoop dreamz

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]
