Hello all you shoppers out there. Its that time of year again when we take out the checkbooks and credit cards (and aspirin) to buy our loved ones the things they need or that we think will give them a little joy. And what brings joy to peoples lives more than anything? Video Games! Thats right, Video Games! For those of you that cant decide what game or games to get for your family or friends, you definitely dont want to miss this show. Weve got two jam packed hours of information and entertainment coming your way this week.
Our first hour starts off with all the news from the past couple weeks, and theres a lot since we didnt do a show last week. In this trip through the news headlines, youll get updated on some of the forthcoming releases for Nintendo as well as the upcoming Video Game Awards. Also in the news, well discover what some analyst say are the most violent games out there. Weve also got a warning for you users of the Sony PS2 demo disc.
With all the news we had to go through, theres only a little bit of time left in hour one. So, what better time than this to get to the Reviews Of The Week. In preparation for the special holiday part of this show (coming up in hour two), we wrap-up hour one with not 1, not 2, not 3 but 6, yes, 6 games going under the knife this week! The games of choice this week are Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, Texas Holdem, World Championship Poker, Fight Club, SpongeBob Squarepants: The Movie and ESPN NBA 2K5.
Now that the first hour is out of the way, we can move onto what youve all been waiting for, its the Holiday Special part of the show. Its a good time to be a gamer, and to prove it we start things off with a conversation about the biggest thing to come out this season, the Nintendo DS. Hoss and Rich have gotten there hands on this new portable and put it through its paces. Theyll give us the lowdown on how it handles and tell us about some of the games that are available for it.
Once we get through talking about the DS, its time for the guys to go through each system and give you some picks to consider getting those on your list. First up, the Xbox. This is by far Richs preferred system for gaming, but Hoss has some input on it as well. Moving on, we set our sites on the GameCube, which has some of the best exclusives on the market, and the Game Boy Advance. Last but not least, the boys will go through their picks for the PS2.
If you think thats the end of this show, youre wrong. To end things with a bang, Hoss and Rich will us give their top 5 games for the year. The freak will even chime in and tell you a couple of games that you should avoid this holiday season. And just to prove that were equal opportunity gamers (ok, maybe not equal), the guys will give you a couple picks for those PC gamers on your list. This is without a doubt one of the biggest shows yet, so click the links below and arm yourselves with the info you need to get through this tough time of year. Enjoy!
Showtimes for this 2 hour special are as follows:
Tuesday – 9pm-11pm CST
