GT's Content Creators Showcase, feat. Burch and Davis

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 while special gu...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Rhythm Heaven

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 played Canabalt o...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Mass Effect 2

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 obese parts of...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Ico

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 ...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Gears of War

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 tells his son he ...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Fable II

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...

HAWP: Far Cry 2 is here, watch it

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 to do is take ...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': The Sims

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. Anyw...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': The Ballad of Bullet Bill

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 and take an&nb...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin': Mother's Day

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 Ashl...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Sleep is Death

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 have (A) seven...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Puzzle Quest

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 ago and just n...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: 1 vs 100

This week's Hey Ash Whatcha Playin' is more of a "hmm" episode than a "haha" episode. So long as you go into it knowing that (and also that our Dad isn't in it, because I was afraid of overexposing him) you may enjoy it. Thankfully, there d...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Heavy Rain

I'm at GDC and currently tired beyond description, but I thought you might wanna know that the newest episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is up. It's on Heavy Rain, and you can watch it here. Hope you like it.

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Psychonauts

"Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin" is a surreal, videogame-related comedy series by Destructoid staffers. Well, two of them. Well, one. I'm pretty happy with this week's episode of Hey Ash and, unusually, other people seem to be as well. The trade-...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Rock Band

This week's episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is about Rock Band. Sort of. I don't think Ash and I have ever played Rock Band together, come to think of it. A lot of people also seem to get some sort of incestuous vibe from this episode, ...

HAWPcast: Super Kawaii Animu Episode Gaiden

Image by desfunk. Ash and I don't watch a lot of anime, but we've watched enough to fill an hour's worth of podcastery. If you've got a soft spot for Cowboy Bebop, or if you absolutely hate Azumanga Daioh, you probably won't like us very mu...

ANTHONY BURCH HATES GAY PEOPLE

At the conclusion of a recent episode of "Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin," Anthony Burch instantly and remorselessly bought Shadow Complex off Xbox Live Arcade, subsequently funding an author who has referred to homosexuals as "hypocrites." When ...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: The Most Dangerous Game

I'm pretty happy with this week's episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'. I was kind of worried that the subject matter may have been too grim to be funny for most people (a la Geometry Wars), but the ep seems to have gotten a pretty good rece...

HAWPcast: Why Did You Show Me That

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is a surreal comedy series made by Anthony and Ashly Burch. They do a (semi) weekly podcast. This week's episode of the HAWPcast is, perhaps thankfully, a little shorter than our other episodes. Clocking in at just ...

HAWPcast: a Dr Who sandwich on Half-Life bread

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is a surreal comedy series made by Anthony and Ashly Burch. They do a (semi) weekly podcast. Don't worry, this week's HAWPcast (click the iTunes button on the right side of the page if you want to get it that way) i...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Overlooked Games of 2009

My New Year's Resolution is to learn more about lighting. I'll stick to it until roughly the end of this sentence. This week's episode is a sort of 2009-in-review thing, except not really. Perhaps you will enjoy it. If you don't, it will ru...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: preggers

Nobody seems to like this week's episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin', but that's okay, because I do. I usually have trouble thinking of something else to write for these HAWP promotional posts. Only today did I suddenly realize the obvious ...

HAWPcast: no resettin'

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' is a surreal comedy series made by Anthony and Ashly Burch. They do a (semi) weekly podcast. This week's HAWPcast starts off like your typical nostalgia trip -- Ash used to participate in forum-based roleplaying, ha...

Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin: Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 is a pretty fun game on its own. What's even cooler about it, however, is that its rules are flexible enough to allow for multiple methods of play: in the same way that Far Cry 2 lends itself to permadeath runthroughs and Ikar...
