The Obsolete Gamer Show: 20XX, Until Dawn


It’s like going back to the beginning but better. Not our first show, but think of it like a brand new series launch!

We’re bringing together the best of many of our other web series such as Alt F4 and Beyond the Gamer Trailer and incorporating them into OGS to delivery what we hope will be one entertaining show.

For our first episode we are still getting used to the new format and it was a little clunky, but we will be adding a lot over the next few shows to deliver and fun and informative experience.

This week we started off with some interesting videos including a cool symphony performance on, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and a strange flash game staring Jeb Bush.

Next we premiered the trailer for 20XX and spoke with Eitan Glinert president of Fire Hose Games about you can expect from the upcoming game.

In our news segment we covered Kanye West’s Twitter rant about Micros-transactions, a robber that may have been inspired by Metal Gear Solid and Twitch T.V. banning so-called “Twitch Sluts.

Our professional gamer segment titled Alt F4 returned and our resident pro gamer Joshua broke down some top stories top stories of the day.

Finally we premiered a new segment the quickie review that turned out to not be quick at all. We reviews the PS4 exclusive, Until Dawn and was joined by Liz Poisonkiss who told us all about her adventure in what I called the “CW horror” game.

We all learned a lot from our first new formatted show and will have a more changes and improvements for our next show including more guests and gameplay footage. So let us know what worked and didn’t work.

Why you should Subscribe to The Obsolete Gamer YouTube Channel

Let’s be honest, there’s tons of YouTube channels out there, great ones even and they are all asking for you to subscribe. Now it’s not a big deal to subscribe to multiple channels, but it would be nice if you knew why you were subscribing so we at Obsolete Gamer won’t just tell you why, we will show you.

Our channel is conversation and discussion focused, we like talking to people be it other gamers, people in the industry, celebrities or fans. However, we split our shows up so you can watch or listen to what you like based on your preference. So here is the rundown.

The Obsolete Gamer Show


This show spawned out of our original radio show where we would talk with anyone about video games. As we great bigger and went to conventions, we were lucky enough to meet actors who work in the gaming and entertainment industry. We decided to change to focus to make OGS the premiere show to showcase those guests.

The Gamer Profiles Show


With OGS we needed a show for the developers and publishers in the gaming industry. We already had our gamer profiles which were in article format, but we thought it would be great to be able to have people see and hear from their favorite developers and publishers from around the world. With GPS, we bring you conversation style interviews, it’s not so much about a specific game, but more the people and companies and even the culture behind it. We love talking to people around the world about games and seeing the differences and what makes all gamers the same.

The Obsolete Gamers


Sure it’s a little confusing, but with OGS and GPS we needed a place for the writers and contributors of the site to just hang out and talk about all the gamer and geek stuff we used to do on the old radio/podcast version of the Obsolete Gamer Show. With OGZ, we record a long show, but then break it down into funny clips and share them with you as often as can. Now, this show is Rated R, sometimes a bit higher than that, but it’s all in good fun and we mean no harm, just gamers trying to have fun and keep it funny.

Alt F4


When we added some professional gamers to the staff the question was asked, why we don’t have a show for them and so Alt F4 was created. This show is all about swagger, we reach out to the best of the best, the ones who believe gaming is series business and have the awards and cash to prove it. Here you can learn about how they got to where they did and maybe how you can to or just talk some trash.

M.A.M.E. of the Game


While Obsolete Gamer is more discussion, profile focused now we are still retro gamers at our core and M.A.M.E. of the game is our show to feature a mix of gameplay footage and commentary with a bit of humor to put our own spin on an old concept. Sometimes we might play a new game, but for the most part we will play a series of older games based on a theme.

We need your Input

So there you have it, we also have non-commentary gameplay footage, classic commercials and footage from events we go to such as E3, CES, Blizzcon, ComicCon and more. We also are always looking for new people to talk to so we take suggestions.

We are constantly uploading new videos and booking new guests so I hope you will consider subscribing and spreading the word about Obsolete Gamer and our channel.

So what do you say?

Come on, join the nation.

OGX Episode 1

OGX Episode 1

When you deal with the stresses of work, school and just life sometimes you need some time to nerd it up. For the most part, us gamers do this in a game, but believe it or not, a lot of us are social creatures as well.

We launched OGX to show fans of Obsolete Gamer what we really are like, raw and uncut. It’s vulgar, it’s geeky and it’s certainly is NOT political correct, but we do hope it’s entertaining. Now while this should is filled will silliness we also ask some serious questions and have some good discussions on topics such as the future of MMO’s specifically WildStar and Everquest Next. Beyond that we talk about such silly topics as which video game character would make the best wife. (Article on that coming soon)

So here is Episode 1 of The Obsolete Gamer Experience, you can find it on our OGX Show Page or you can watch it along with all our other current original programming on O.G. Original T.V. Channel Let us know what you think.
