HYPERTIME TO PODCAST – AMAZING FANTASY #15
He is one of, if not THE, most recognizable heroes in the world. He’s had a number of movies. Decades of comics. He’s relatable in a way a lot of heroes weren’t at the time of his creation.

HYPERTIME TO PODCAST – MILESTONE MEDIA
Milestone Media revolutionized comics. While today it’s probably most remembered with its popular character Static, it helped promote diversity in an industry in desperate need of it. Josh and Allan discuss the founding of Milestone Media, the creation of its world, the controversies, the rebirths, and more.

HYPERTIME TO PODCAST – DWAYNE MCDUFFIE- PART 1
I’m not even sure how to start this post. How do you try to summarize a man’s life who helped changed the comic industry in an effort to spread diversity? A man who put in the effort to give marginalized people someone they could see as a reflection of themselves in a medium that desperately needed those characters. This is Dwayne McDuffie. What was originally going to be a mix of various topics for Black History Month ended up turning into the Dwayne McDuffie month. Boiling down the life of this man into one episode is impossible. We did several and still left things out. The impact he left on the world is huge. Hopefully, in these episodes, you’ll come to know why he is one of the greatest creators not only the comic industry has seen, but one of the greatest minds to spread diversity and equality on the planet in the best way he could.

Keepin’ It 💯 Ep 9.5: Mass Effect 2, Breath of the Wild, Grand Theft Auto V, Dead Space, and Other Games that Missed My Top 100 List
*Eminem Voice* ReMeMbEr mE? That's right, it's about damn time I got back to finishing this show. This, of course, is Keepin' It 💯, the podcast where I,  Emmett Watkins Jr, try to rank my top 100 games of all time. Way back in June of 2020, I finally finished that ranking and promised to come back and reveal the final ranked list. Well, it took way longer than I (expected thanks 2020), but I'm finally ready to reveal the final list in a special video episode! But before we do that, let's kick the wheels on this series one more time and wake it up before wrapping it up. There are dozens of games that I love that aren't on the final list, 100 of them in fact. So, let's take this time to go through those other games that were left on the cutting room floor when making the list. I don't apologize for any of the hot takes heard in this episode. As for when I mentioned at the end, stay tuned to the VGU.TV Twitter for the series of tweets to win the games I've listed. Remember, for the game mentioned in each tweet, guess what ranking it will get in the final list. Closest to the correct spot will win, and I'll break any possible ties as they come up. I'll send out codes upon the premier of the full list in the coming days. And once again, thank you for listening and supporting not only this series but everything else on VGU.TV and everything thing else I do. The fact that anyone cares blows me away and encourages me to do right by every single one of you. See you all at the finale! Check out YouTube Channel here! Follow us on Twitter @VGU_TV!

What's Up, Playa? This week, despite technical difficulties, is a special week. Not only is the next generation upon us, but this marks a full year since VGU.TV relaunched in its current form. To celebrate, we not only have Emmett Watkins Jr and Allan Muir on as always but are also joined by Josh Miller and Graydon Webb. That's right, the entire VGU.TV cast is here, and it's a wonderful episode! In the special segment, we look back and reminisce on our favorite moments from the last year and pat each other's backs profusely. And after that, we play a special game! Since a big inspiration for many of us is the work that Kinda Funny does, Emmett decided to bring over their "Messy Mash-Up" game that Blessing Jr does for this special episode. It ended up being right down to the wire, so hopefully, you guys have as much fun listening to it as we had recording it!

What's Up, Playa? Kept ya waitin, huh? That's right! We back from hiatus, thanks to some PC repairs, and Emmett Watkins Jr and Allan Muir are here to once again talk through some gaming news, even if it's a month old.

We also discuss "The New E3", which is also known as the never-ending stream of individual gaming reveal events with no real order or structure. We discuss the positives and negatives of this new format and whether or not we prefer the old way of doing things: having one big week where everyone announces everything. But before that, we start with the What We're Playing segment, where Emmett talks about his time with The Last of Us Part II and Slay the Spire, and Al talks about his time with SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom: Rehydrated and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.

The PlayStation All-Stars Ultimate Roster Showdown: Matches 1-4 Recap
 Welcome back to The PlayStation All-Stars Ultimate Roster Showdown! Remember PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale? Despite selling over 1 million copies, DLC support was canceled early on, and the game has been largely forgotten as it's online servers are now closing down. However, there are many PlayStation fans that are hoping for a remaster or even sequel one day, and it is from that love and passion that we created this. Each week, on our official Twitter, we will have a new poll in which we pit two PlayStation icons against each other. Alongside each poll will be an article on the site in which two writers make their case for each of the characters. And finally, every four matchups will get a podcast episode (in this feed) to recap the winners and theorize how they'd fit into the game. After 20 weeks and match ups, we'll have one big podcast to discuss all of the winners and our hopes and dreams for a sequel. This week, Graydon and Emmett go over each of the first 4 matchups of the Showdown and give some constellation prices to the losers. Curious as to who the first winners are? Well, check below for a list, with each of their articles and polls linked below! Match 1: Juan from Guacamelee beat Dart from Legend of Dragoon Match 2: Aya Brea from Parasite Eve lost to Gabe Logan from Syphon Filter Match 3: Chie from Persona 4 washed Claptrap from Borderlands Match 4: Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn vs. Big Boss from the Metal Gear Solid series
