Since he was such a great guest, mainly because he actually upped the quality of the show, we’ve asked OobieJosh to join us again for a wonderful discussion about tragedy, hardware, and vibrating underpants.
Sony has tipped their hand on their hardware specs, Wii U sales are in the toilet, and now the Ouya has failed to part the clouds and let the sun shine down and save gaming? What’s Microsoft going to do? Moar Kinect! *sigh*
So the PS4 is officially a list of specs, the controller has a share button, and the Internet is about to be flooded with “check out my latest kill” videos. The next generation is here. Get hyped. Continue reading
Oh those wacky console launches. We demand them, and then when the time comes, we just whine about them. You can’t win with us. But deep down, you know the truth: we’re going to buy them all. Well, except Dave: he hates fun.

We’re just guest crazy these days. This time, we’re joined by the legendary Owbie… no… Ewwbie… that’s not it… Ah! OobieJosh. As it turns out; he’s a damn good guest host. Certainly lives up to the hype. Show notes below.
It’s that time of year again: new tech and gadgets to consume your spending dollars. 4K is the big talk this year, but does anyone really care? Apparently someone does, or that is to say, manufacturers hope someone does. Continue reading
Welcome to the last show of 2012! The usual gang of Widget misanthropes are joined by special guest “The Avian”, and his nickname doesn’t have as cool a story attached to it as one might have hoped. Show notes: Continue reading
Topic of the Week: Marketing is ruining games.
I’m pleased to say that we actually managed to record a short show when we said we would. Crazy, I know. Lots of great info in here, and of course, Paul is miserably hungover. Apple maps apology, Paul’s Resident Evil 6 review, and how you can use Facebook to grief on your friends for the low cost of $7 per status update. Show notes below.
Hey folks. First: let me apologize for the audio version of this running about a week behind release of the video. However, now would be a great time to remind everyone that we now record the show LIVE on our YouTube channel, so if you don’t feel like waiting, or just love seeing our faces, that’s the place to get your Widget fix in the mostly timely manner. Sometimes RL just doesn’t understand that I have a show to get out! Anywho, lots of great stuff here, especially if you’re a giant iPhone (or phone nerd in general). If not though, you may just want to skip till about an hour in. I’m just sayin… Oh, and to check out the sweet video of the official Widget Show rally car, click the link to read on (show notes follow the video).
