The only video game news that anybody needs to care about is Earthbound is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console! We visited the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 1.0 in Atlanta this weekend, as well as the accompanying Apple Pop-Up Museum. The Museum WILL open again for two days only in it's current location - on Saturday, May 18th, and Saturday, June 8th. Our interview is with Katie Hallahan of Phoenix Online Studios, where we talk about the point-and-click adventure games Cognition, The Silver Lining, and the upcoming Jane Jensen's Moebius. Then we take calls about Link To The Past II, Earthbound, and Tim Curry in video games. Our live outtro music (which airs after the podcast outtro and before OLR takes the stream) is preserved. #BostonStrong

Nintendo has partnered with YouTube to take ad revenue from content ID matches of Let's Play videos. Lots of people are upset, because they forgot that SEGA completely removed videos and Microsoft actually has the same policy. EA apparently hates the Wii U and is no longer making games for it...Is it because Nintendo said "no" to running Origin? EA also announced that they're removing Online Passes...What do they have up their sleeve? Then we take calls about the Let's Play issue, the upcoming (at the time of airing) Xbox reveal, and Yahoo buying Tumblr for more money than we at VOG have ever seen in our life.
We have a LIVE interview with Chiptune Pop Artist Professor Shyguy, promoting his second album Rated Heart, which is currently having a Kickstarter campaign. We talk about his influences, live performances, relationship with voice actors, board games such as Arkham Horror and King of Tokyo, and have the WORLD STREAMING PREMIERE of the intro track from the new album, The RPG Song.
Indie studio Green Heart Games released their first game, Game Dev Tycoon, this past week and did a social experiment with game pirates that turned into a brilliant marketing ploy. We also look at if it is a direct ripoff of Game Dev Story. The creators of internet memes Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat have sued Warner Bros over the unauthorized use of their intellectual property in Scribblenauts. The creators claim that it's no different than licensing Nintendo characters. Our final interview from PAX East is with Emeric Thoa from The Game Bakers, talking about their upcoming touchscreen beatemup Combo Crew. Then, OLR and Bobby talk about the next year of VOG (we turned one year old this week!) and the OUYA.
Nintendo has announced that it will not hold a traditional E3 press conference this year, but are rather doing more focused events. Game journalists complain about not being able to write their "Nintendo's E3 Press Conference Sucked" article. 2K Games announced they also will not have a booth on the E3 show floor, but they will still have meeting rooms and appointments. Our interview from PAX is with Jon Ingold and Joseph Humfrey from Inkle Interactive Studios, who are releasing an iOS version of the classic adventure gamebook Steve Jackson's Sorcery! this week. Then we take calls about E3, Nintendo, and Dead Island: Riptide.
