GameOn Podcast – Episode 42

GameOn Episode 42 is here and we’ve got another great line-up for you today!

With 2013 here and a year of great content behind us, we’re taking a retrospective look at some of our top features. This week, we’re looking back at our interview with Internet sensation Little Kuriboh, the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged!

Jumping back into the present, we’re continuing our look at Dust: An Elysian Tail this week. We’ve spoke with the voices behind Fidget and the Sword of Ahrah in past weeks and this time around, we interview Lucien Dodge, the voice for Dust! Lucien talks about getting his start as a voice actor and his experiences with Dust: An Elysian Tail.

And our featured interview guest this week is an amazing voice actor in his own right. We’re joined by voice actor David Kaye, the man behind such characters as Megatron in five Transformers series, Treize Khushrenada of Gundam Wing and Sesshomaru of InuYasha. David Kaye talks about his career as a voice actor, getting his start and some of the exciting projects he’s working on today, including the new Dead Island: Riptide!

Speaking of Dead Island: Riptide, the game has been subject to quite the amount of controversy recently and we’re going to discuss that controversy today! GameOn contributor Kyle Born and GameOn Host Jeff Johnson discuss controversy in video games, with a focus on the bloody bust included with the Dead Island: Riptide Zombie Bait Edition.

And to end this week’s show, GameOn host Jeff Johnson introduces a brand new feature to GameOn, the Pile of Shame! The games are piling up in Jeff Johnson’s house and he’s making a commitment to playing each and every one of them!

Thanks for listening! Check in every Thursday for an exciting new episode of GameOn!

    My game shelf has quit e a few games yet to be played as well. I always seem to go back to that same COD multiplayer. Yesterday I started my dusty copy of FEAR 3. Such a great game. Very glad I took out COD and slipped that one in. I need to do this type thing more often.

      The Pile of Shame could turn into something website-wide! How many people have games on their shelves they haven’t really played?
