Danny O'Dwyer is in the house, with his lugubrious accent and his Sega-loving ways. You wanted a Half-Life 2 appreciation segment? We've got that. We've also got appreciation for other things: buttered popcorn, Metro: Last Light, and putting your disgusting fingers into every pie. Kevin VanOrd hosts Tom Mc Shea, Carolyn Petit, and Peter Brown, all of who profess to be thrilled to be there.
But Kevin knows the score. Oh, he knows all right.

The GameSpot team dons their creepy hoods and paints the town blue, along with developer Mike Bithell, who created the wonderful platformer Thomas Was Alone. This week's topics: the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness, the future of Star Wars games, and the comfort of the Lifestream. All this, as Kevin VanOrd, Tom Mc Shea, Andy Bauman, and Peter Brown describe Kratos' favorite threeway and try to differentiate one game's blood splatter from another.

Turnabout is fair play. Case in point: usual host Kevin VanOrd gets forced into a panelist position so that Tom Mc Shea can see how well he handles the grueling quizzes. Spoiler! He doesn't do so hot, proving that he knows more about Tchaikovsky than he knows about DMA Designs.
More to the point, Kevin, Tom, Carolyn Petit, Chris Watters, and Tyler Winegarner flesh out the Grand Theft Auto V trailers to determine which gets them most excited for the upcoming sequel. We also consider Nintendo's E3...

Our guest couldn't make it, but that's ok: we've got more than enough to talk about anyway in this jam-packed episode, in which Andy Bauman contemplate an alternate world in which fishing enthusiasts might purchase a game called Sturgeon Simulator; Carolyn Petit talks about Burnout's beautifully glazed deliciousness; and Tom threatens to erect the Walls of Dumbwell.
Host Kevin VanOrd doesn't actually need to do much hosting, when he's got a group this rambunctious.

The old and the new collide as former GameSpot Editor in Chief Greg Kasavin stops by to debate the merits of accessibility, the joys of both commanding and conquering, and whether Deus Ex: Invisible War gets a bum rap. We also consider calling the podcast the Dark Souls Appreciation Hour, since we can't resist the temptations of Dark Souls II.
Host Kevin VanOrd flashes a heavenly smile on the other members of this killer crowd, which includes the noir-inspired Carolyn Petit, the turn-based Tyler...

In this dusty, rambling edition of the GameSpot GamePlay podcast, host Kevin VanOrd proves just how random and bizarre his mind really is. Why must it be so difficult to put a sentence together?! Fortunately, the not-so-random Carolyn Petit, Tom Mc Shea, and Tyler Winegarner are there to pick up the slack and talk about EA's newest designation as the worst company in America.
Do you know who doesn't ramble? The ultra-intelligent Harvey Smith, whose credits include Deus Ex, System Shock, and Dishonored--and...

How wonderful that BioShock Infinite has given us so much to talk about! Eager to sound off about Irrational's latest work, the GameSpot crew invites guest Mitch Dyer from IGN and dissects the sights and sounds of Columbia, seeking truth in every nook and cranny. This week's regulars include Carolyn Petit, Chris Watters, Tyler Winegarner, and of course, host Kevin VanOrd.
Caution: If you listen to this special episode, BioShock Infinite will be spoiled for you. Listen at your own risk!

In this fully unedited episode of GameSpot GamePlay, great vegetable superhero El Beeto swoops in to save host Kevin VanOrd from certain humiliation at the hands of Tom Mc Shea, Chris Watters, and Tyler Winegarner. Up for discussion: Why did Kojima give David Hayter the shaft? Is Battlefield 4 really going to give you all of the feels? Why is New Zealand not called New Zed-land?
We have no answers, but we sure like asking questions.

Matt Gilgenbach makes games. He makes good games. He made Retro/Grade, which is a cool game you should go and play.
Matt Gilgenbach is also obsessed with nude holograms with reflective skin that obscures their genitalia. Learn more about Matt's idiosyncrasies and upcoming murder simulators on this week's episode, which also features host Kevin VanOrd, who cannot un-know things without heavy drinking and head trauma; Peter Brown, who must determine which mountain is the most appropriate to smell...

Hollander Cooper from GamesRadar is such a stand-up guy that he lets us make fun of him for an entire podcast. In response, he finds new and interesting ways to insert the words "penis" and "poop" into this episode of GameSpot GamePlay. Not to be outdone, former GameSpot game guides editor Matt Rorie tells us how he "gets around," proving that while his body might be a temple, his writing is for sale to the highest bidder.
All the rest of us can do is hope to get in a few extraneous thoughts, such...
