This is the place to talk about all things VGCW. That includes live streams, plot discussions, and much more. For those that need a reminder, VGCW is a Twitch live stream that @bazza87 runs whenever he feels like it(it usually starts at 11pm UK time). The show is run on WWE 13' for the purpose of hosting a wrestling show that resembles the WWE. The thing that makes it special is the fact that the talent in the show is a random assortment of video game characters like Dr. Willy, Phoenix Wright, and more. The show also includes real life characters like Gabe Newell, Charles Barkley, etc. Bazza makes a match list for one night and writes some story that is delivered by the strange plot device that made the infamous Ghost Problems video. The interesting thing is that Bazza let's the CPU fight every match. This means that he has to write a story that is basically decided upon by sheer chance. If you don't know, WWE 13' is a bad game and the CPU's demonstrate this by having ample amounts of #THQuality in nearly every match. In short, the show is hosted on Twitch and is as insane as I make it out to be. You really should watch it.

With that out of the way I'm guessing that many of us were introduced to VGCW by Giantbomb so hopefully this'll be a thread that'll be awesome.

Today will be my first time watching it live. I kinda thought it seemed potentially very dumb, and then spent half the weekend watching it. Yikes.

Last week was my first episode. The first thing I saw was the inferno match between Bowser and Ganon.

SO MUCH GODDAMN HYPE

Love this show. I was one step away to actually signing up for a twitch/twitter account just to get notifications of when the show was going live. But, I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

So glad this exists, it's better than current WWE.

Live in five. If, you know, time is kept.

My only wish is to see Arino beat Gaben (which will never happen, Gaben is on a damn tear) and go on to be chairman. Because I want to see him give the roster challenges. And because Game Center VGCW would be great.

VGCW is awesome now and that's all I'm going to say for now, because I have to go and catch back on old episodes.

#20 Posted by MikeydCT (563 posts) -

the matches all bots?

#21 Posted by Soapy86 (2620 posts) -

Dat Bubble Man music.

#22 Posted by TyCobb (1966 posts) -

@mikeydct: Yep. THQ Quality AI. It's great when they get stuck in seemingly endless loops.

#23 Edited by MikeydCT (563 posts) -

@tycobb: cant plan out who would win?

#24 Posted by TyCobb (1966 posts) -

@mikeydct: That would kill the fun of it. It's real in the sense that it isn't plan unlike real wrestling on TV. For story line matches the creator actually builds story line branches with different win conditions.

#25 Edited by MikeydCT (563 posts) -

IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!! ;-;

#26 Posted by FLStyle (4668 posts) -

Sadly, VGCW has better writing then WWE right now.

I've never been a wrestling fan, but this...I can't take my eyes off of it.

The Wily entrance made me laugh so hard.

#37 Posted by CollegeGuyMike (389 posts) -

I have never given a damn about wrestling in the slightest, but for some reason I can't stop watching this every week...

#38 Posted by FLStyle (4668 posts) -

Gabe Newell, great troll entrance or greatest troll entrance?

#39 Posted by Mirado (993 posts) -

500 internet bux on Gaben. Squeeze that wallet!

#40 Edited by Nev (547 posts) -

Go go Gaben!

#41 Edited by Soapy86 (2620 posts) -

I love how everyone has to qualify their enjoyment of VGCW with, "...bu-bu-but I would never watch actual pro wrestling, I SWEAR!"

Also, Gabe's entrance will never get old.

#42 Posted by NegativeCero (2997 posts) -

The music really makes watching this so much better.

#43 Edited by pyrodactyl (1980 posts) -

yeah random pirates of the caribbeans music!

I don't think it's so much about downplaying wrestling in general or trying to say 'Oh no, I'd NEVER watch that!', but more that VGCW is so funny/entertaining/dumb that it bridges a weird gap for people who've never really had any previous interest in anything wrestling related.

Go Gabe! This is why the Internet exists.
