    Join the GameCentric Radio Crew as we review our weekend at RamenCon! We'll discuss panels, gaming, anime, and all the other cool stuff we find along the way. We'll also be sharing some delicious suggestions for cheap (or free!) gaming options. If you're a gamer on a budget (or just like not spending a lot of extra cash) we'll have a tasty serving to spend your resources on. This is just one portion of our RamenCon coverage, as we'll also feature write-ups on our Tumblr at http://gamecentricradio.tumblr.com/ and photos on our Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/GameCentricRadio/.

    The team at Game Centric Radio will take on a hot-button topic (again, since there was too much content for just one episode) -- depictions of mental illness in gaming! Whether we're looking at video games to portraying mental illnesses in table-top gaming, we'll be exploring accuracy and the fine line between "over the top" and downright offensive.

    Terrified of waiting for October to discuss horror gaming? Don't worry -- the Game Centric Radio crew will be discussing horror and horror gaming (of all types).

    The team at Game Centric Radio will take on a hot-button topic -- depictions of mental illness in gaming! Whether we're looking at video games (from Borderlands to the depictions of Joker and Harley Quinn) to portraying mental illnesses (known as "derangements" in some systems) in table-top gaming, we'll be exploring accuracy and the fine line between "over the top" and downright offensive. We'll even look at character-based board/card games that touch on the subject, such as Gloom and Betrayal at the House on Haunted Hill.

    Friday the 27th: Camp-y Movies and Their Terrifying(ly Bad) Games

    28/03/2015 Duración: 55min

    While not everyone has had the joy that is shaking hands with Tommy Wiseau moments after he (literally) walks into a door -- though Movie Mistress Jade has, and loved every minute of it -- most have at least heard of the delightful disaster The Room. The movie, however, is much more well-known than the game (and definitely better known than the fact Wiseau has explored video games on the Tommy Wi-Show). Jade and her guest-host will go down the rabbit hole of ridiculous films and their related games during this episode of Final Friday Films.

Neglected too often, indie games take the forefront this week as Donnie discusses a host of indie games -- new, updated, and/or previously neglected. The team will be taking on the topic of when an indie game stops actually being an "indie game." Scott will also have one of his patent-pending Impromptu Game Reviews.

    28/02/2015 Duración: 01h02min

    In January, Game Centric Radio's FINAL FRIDAY FILMS discussed the collision between zombie movies and games.

  • Gamer Love 2: The Anniversary

    Gamer Love 2: The Anniversary

    11/02/2015 Duración: 59min

    With Valentine's Day coming up, GCR wants to discuss one of your true loves -- gaming. Of course, it's unlikely you're buying your long-term love (the Dreamcast) roses or your new sweetheart (the PS4) a box of chocolates. However, if your significant other is a gamer, you might be settling in for a raid in World of Warcraft or a few rounds of Halo after a romantic dinner with your Valentine.  Tune in this week as we discuss gamer romance. Last year, we courted the ideas of meeting significant others in games, introducing partners to the gaming world, and the "wet blanket" effect of dragging an unwilling participant into a game. This year, we'll revisit and add to some of these topics, as well as continuing to discuss relationships created within games (in character) and the impact of those relationships outside of the game. 

  • Grim Foreshadowing: The Shady Side of Gaming

    Grim Foreshadowing: The Shady Side of Gaming

    04/02/2015 Duración: 56min

    Sad to say, but not all of our precious gaming is sunshine and rainbows. We all have this ideal of how things ought to be done. How things ought to be released. Sometimes, however, the process (and, therefore, product) doesn't live up to our expectations.  This week, the GCR Crew will bring to the light the shady business practices of the gaming community. Whether its false advertising, premature DLC, massive lay-offs for purposes of "re-imagining a concept," or anything in between, you can be sure that the Crew will be putting it under a microscope (or, at least, a magnifying glass). So, tune in and don't miss out! 

  • Final Friday Films -- Episode 1: Zombies Devour Our Attention

    Final Friday Films -- Episode 1: Zombies Devour Our Attention

    31/01/2015 Duración: 55min

    Most of us have been playing the Resident Evil series and House of the Dead for more than a decade, but how much do we actually know about the movies and mythos that gave birth to the genre of zombie games. How have zombies evolved in film, and how does that impact the type(s) of zombies (and "infected," which are not zombies) we see in video games (as well as table-top and board/card games)? Jade (with guest-host Donnie) will discuss these questions and so much more on the first episode of Final Friday Films.

    17/12/2014 Duración: 01h20min

    It's been one heck of a ride this past year. The Game Centric Radio Crew made it through one year of podcasting, reviews, conventions, and everything in between. While this year has been a blast, the coming year will leave you on the edge of your gaming chairs! This week, the GCR Crew will reminisce about this past year and regale you with tales past ... and a top 3-5 countdown of each members' favorite games this year! But that's not all! Stay tuned as the Crew will tell you of all the new happenings, changes, and new shows that will come to be in 2015! So stay tuned, and don't miss out!

  • Born(e) Identities: Games and Related Media

    Born(e) Identities: Games and Related Media

    10/12/2014 Duración: 01h48min

    Many games today are not merely games. They start as games, and somehow, through some mystical process *cough-marketing-cough* they grow, spawn, and morph into other media as well. Many well-known titles have gone on to sire movies, toys, and even other types of games. This week, the Game Centric Radio crew will dissect this ever-morphing animal to dig up the answer about how games can become something more (and, perhaps, how so many other things find themselves incarnated as video games). So tune in, and don't miss out!

    'Tis the season. You mark down all of the holiday sales, compile your wishlists for mass distribution, and gas up the car to make the shopping rounds. Wait ... you mean you DIDN'T get all of that ready? No need to fear! Let the GCR Crew help you get your holiday wishlist in order, so you're not left out in the cold and missing out on your favorite, gift-able, games of all shapes and sizes (and types and genres). Also, hold onto your your elf ears, because Scott will also provide another one of his patent-pending, #supermegaawesome, impromptu game review! So tune in, and don't miss out!

  • No Pain, No Gain: The (Social) Science of Challenge!

    No Pain, No Gain: The (Social) Science of Challenge!

    19/11/2014 Duración: 01h54min

    Ever wonder why some games have you keep coming back for more, even though you are finding yourself struggling to the point of frustration at a specific area? Do you get an adrenaline kick when you are fighting the last boss of your favorite game and it seems like the epic battle can go either way at a moment's notice? Behind every game therein lies a thin layer that keeps all games engaging ... Challenge. This week, the GCR crew will face-off and do battle to uncover the psychology behind challenge and difficulty in games. The discussion will also include self-imposed challenges (such as, but not limited to, those filmed for individuals' YouTube or Twitch channels) as well as the wide variety of professional competitions that permeate the world of gaming today. Lastly, the group will duke it out over what it means to introduce difficulty into games that are not of the video variety. So, make sure you've saved your game, because this is one fight you'll not want to lose. Tune in, and don't miss out!

    ローカライズは簡単です! (Localization is Easy!)

    12/11/2014 Duración: 01h41min

    Ever wonder how your favourite games are brought over the good ol' US of A? Believe it or not, there is a very long and -- sometimes -- highly debated upon process that goes into getting the games you know set up "just right" for the US markets. This week, the GCR Crew will delve into the process of Localization. The team will translate their way into understanding the process in more detail and will discover the many controversies that arise because of this process. So tune in and don't miss out!
