Time: 8 pm EST

Will Spongebobbies be there? Probably not, he's partially to blame for the reintroduction of #TPSSCGN but hardly ever shows up!

CGN 1/25/13: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Plus Extras!!!


It's time for another CGN. This time we are going back to Friday for a little Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. If you are a PlayStation Plus member you should be able to download your free version. If not then why don't you just pick up a used copy?

What: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
When: 1/25/13 @ 8 pm est
Where: PSN

Special Saturday Afternoon CGN:

Don't tell MAG, but we are having a special Saturday afternoon CGN just for MAG. Suturday, January 26th is MAG's birthday! What better way to celebrate than to play a round or two of the greatest massively multiplayer game the PS3 has ever seen. The return of CGN was a hit with MAG, I can only assume this will be even better. Make sure to keep this a secret though, because we don't want MAG to find out.


What: MAG
When: 1/26/13 @ 2 pm est
Where: PSN

But wait, there's more! If you want to stick around for a few minutes until we realize we hate MAG you can join us for some Steam gaming with The Ship.


What's The Ship you say?

The Ship is primarily a multiplayer, online murder game with a unique set of game rules.

The Ship is owned by the mysterious Mr X and as one of many 'lucky' recipients of a free ticket you arrive on board The Ship to find there's a catch to your luxury cruise.

You are coerced into a brutal Hunt to indulge Mr. X's fantasies, under threat of death for not only yourself, but also your family. Your only chance to save yourself and your family is to play the Hunt and win.


We have never played the ship, but this Saturday is better than never. If you don't have a copy there might be some extras to give away, because anyone who has it likely has 2 gift copies in their Steam inventory. Do the right thing and be on Steam after our 5 mins of MAG.

CGN 1/19/13: Battlefield Bad Company 2/God of War: Ascension Beta


It's time to go back to one of the best shooters ever made. That's right we wanted to play COD4 but it's still too much used so we settled for BFBC2. Note that this week and most weeks moving forward CGN's will be on Saturday around 8 pm. This is so we can get more people to play.

As a bonus we will also be playing the God of War: Ascension Beta after a few hours of BFBC2. So if you have Plus make sure to download it!

CGN for 1/11/13: Battlefield Bad Company

Well the return of CGN was a hit. Everyone has fallen back in love with MAG. It was too much fun. Thanks for all of those that participated. Geran420, King_Bowser, jizzy6879, Spongebobbies, panteradown2, pwnbot and ediddy999. We had a kind of late announcement to the return of CGN so we decided to announce it earlier.

Next week's CGN we will be playing Battlefield Bad Company, the original. Go out and get a used copy at Gamestop now! It's only $4.99. That's the beauty of CGN. We will always pick multiplayer games that are cheap to buy or that most people already own.

If you want to plan even farther ahead check out the new events tap at the top of the site or click here. There  you can find what our plans are going to be for the next few weeks it you want to make sure you have one of the games we are going to play.

The 2012 Showies Podcast


The 2012 Showies were everything I dreamed it would be. It was a night to be remembered.

So much happened. We had an impromptu reunion show in Segment 2 when Hamster and Austin D joined us for a one time only appearance. There was also an hour in which ediddy disappeared and FireVader happened, which was thankfully edited out to be released sometime in the future.

All of this and much much more. It was amazing and I would like to thank TpSUK, The Boom Podcast, BZTP, The FireVader Reviews Podcast, ThePlayStationShow.com Podcast, Everything Burrito, The TPSNFL Update and the Community for a great year and a great Showies.
