Front Towards Gamer Radio

Gigi goes CRUNCH this week as she regails us with her rise to Twitch fame through her playing of the "interactive trailer" (see also: demo) of P.T. which ended up being a teaser for the bizarre crossover Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro Silent Hills, Shanghai Six grooves to the beat slaying monsters in Crypt of the Necrodancer, while Quinn stuns us all with his somewhat blaze preview of single player for upcoming multiplayer cross country racing game The Crew.

And of course, we're at week 77 where we ask zombie-game lover Gigi: "Hey, have you played through the first season of The Walking Dead yet?" The answer may surprise you! Or actually, it won't.

Be advised: Operation Supply Drop's brand new video game store, Indie Ammo Box, is live and selling over 100 games at Steam competitive prices, go check it out at indieammobox.com!

Well, well, enjoy GamerGirl while you can, boy-os, because now she's a famous Twitch streamer. She's obviously too busy signing autographs to be on this rinky dink podcast any longer, so value her words as she talks about stealing games on a Japanese Playstation Network account like Stick it to the Man, Quinn discusses the continued disappointment-despite-free-to-play-on-Origin SimCity, while Shanghai Six watches Guardians of the Galaxy and mehs through the Nosgoth open beta weekend.

(If you're not familiar with what happened to Gigi, her Twitch stream was featured on Polygon this week playing through the entire P.T. demo, which then literally lead to 100,000 views, check it out: http://www.polygon.com/2014/8/12/5996537/silent-hill-ps4-hideo-kojima-guillermo-del-toro)

Guest Gigi for this week, Scott "Nemes1sEn4cer" Gable tells us of his adventures working part-time at a mental institution while Quinn tells the gang what it's like to survive a gangland shoot out? Wait...what is this? Are we talking about video games here or what? Oh yeah. 

Scott talks about the wrap up of the Destiny beta, Quinn discusses his time in The Last of Us Remastered, while Shanghai talks about something SO SECRET and SO FORBIDDEN that it had to be cut from the podcast (hence the show going up so late).

The gang is all back on the show to talk concerts, DUI checkpoint shenanigans, movie plushies, San Diego Comic Con! "Guest Gigi" GamerGirlTalk mourns the loss of the Destiny beta to talk about...Final Fantasy 14? Why? And she  Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, which lords only knows what that is. Quinn talks about likely the end of his time as an EVE Online mercenary with the destruction of his corporation and his time at San Diego Comic Con, and lastly Shanghai talks about his time infecting the world in Plague Inc!

Oh, and Shanghai calls it, Destiny is going to be a flop. There, I said it, a $500 million dollar flop.

Quinn went and bailed at the last minute, but have no fear! Like a wizard from the moon, Gamergirl (occasional permanent host for Front Towards Gamer Radio) teleports in and natters at us like a 6-year old with a new toy about her love of the Destiny beta. Shanghai manages to get a word in edgewise to talk briefly about his dalliance into DOTA 2 after the madness that was The International 4.

The whole Mighty Morphin Power Rangers gang is back again to kick some booty! Quinn, Gigi and Shanghai all come together to toast marshmallows and sign campfire songs for the first time in months. And with Gigi actually as the "Guest Gigi" this week, you can bet there's some Animal Crossing talk that involves offing annoying neighbors! Quinn talks about the Best "Urine Soaked Rag" Simulator of 2014, Valiant Hearts, while Shanghai takes a minute to rage about the trial and error fest that is Gods Will Be Watching, and Gigi actually plays something other than Animal Crossing with her time in The Stomping Lands.

It's the birfday cast for Quinn "Soulibon" Sullivan, but you're the one getting the gift with his smooth melodious voice talking about that one kid from Summer Games Done Quick who killed the other guy, and then his time with Lego Assassin's Creed 4. It's truly worth listening to, with special guests Clifford Blezinkski coming on to drop salacious details about his new studio, Boss Key, and Tim Schafer stopping by the studio to talk a little bit about how much of a mistake Broken Age was an how he's just going to move to a island with the rest of the Kickstarter money and spend the rest of his days as a bartender at a cabana pool side bar. And then you'll never BELIEVE what happens next* (click here for more)

*Oh, and Morgan Park is on the show...and none of this happens.

Steam Summer Sale is here, and the gang at Front Towards Gamer is here to flip copies at Kinkos! Wait, what?

Anyway, this week's guest "Gigi" is Dylan "Phazon117" Tierney, who tells the rest of the cast what it's like to be inside a woman. Wait, I mean, he finally pulled the trigger on buying a Wii U and played a bunch of big name Wii U games you'd come to expect. Shanghai Six talks of the disappointing Murdered Soul Suspect, while Quinn starts grinding through the Witcher series in preparation for Witcher 3...which is only seven years away, so you'd better get started immediately!

The Super Bowl of video gaming is over, and with it, another year of wondering what the hell NEXT year's E3 will bring! This year was a whole lotta conceptual mumbo jumbo and promises of 2015 looking like it will just be the bee's knees of video gaming, but what was on the show floor worth talking about? Shanghai comes down with a case of the convention cough and sits this one out as Quinn takes on Morgan Park and Kyle Hanson who were also at the show to talk about what they saw!

Well, this is it! Staff editor-in-chief Tony "ChaingunPope" Wilson says "sayonara" to Front Towards Gamer as the last remaining original Front Towards Gamer employee (well, outside of founder Shanghai Six) to make his way over to the San Francisco area to intern over at GamesRadar. So this week is a little of that chat, and a whole bunch of random E3 chatter!
