MiniGUP is back this week for another show all about gaming. This time around, Darryl, Colin, and Lauren sit down to talk about the current issues and your questions. Clo is sitting this one out due to her crazy schedule at EuroGamer this year. The first part of the show is devoted to all things PlayStation Vita including its price, desirability, game lineup, and its general potential with the gaming market in comparison to the new wave of mobile gaming. Afterwards, they move into your questions, which include hearing voices in your head when reading someone else’s post and whether or not there are too many Fist Person Shooters (FPS) on the market today. To say the least, the discussion is interesting and may go in a direction that you wouldn’t expect. If you’re interest is peaked, then make sure to listen in to this longer than normal episode!

Well, it’s safe to say that the Kingdom Hearts news drought has been replaced temporarily with a veritable ton of news. This week Lauren, Darryl, and Branden sit down to talk about all the news from TGS including the new Disney world, new companions, and all the new information that’s been released on the story according to the new trailer. They then talk more about the game with the news that’s been released about the gameplay. Next, the trio moves on to reading your answers from last week’s Burning Question which was “What do KH fans expect from TGS?” The gang doesn’t waste time before they move into the questions that you have! This episode, they focus on two questions including their thoughts on a Kingdom Hearts MMORPG and what worlds they feel have fallen short and could have been done better. While you digest all of the opinions flying around, you can listen to the music for this show, which is a trance remix of Dearly Beloved. Here is your KH episode so enjoy yourself!

Square Enix has given FFU a lot of news to talk about this week and the gang has a field day going through it all. This time around, Darryl, Colin, and Lauren sit down and start the show by rifling through all the news that just came out including stories about FF13-2, FF14, and Type-0 (delayed again). The news from FF13-2 brought a rather in depth discussion for whether or not SE is letting too much out of the bag too early. After Colin stops raging, the group moves onto the responses from the latest Burning Question which was “what did you think about the Type-0 demo if you played it?” On the whole, the consensus was pretty one sided, but you’ll have to listen to find out what it was and to find out what the new Burning Question is. The trio wastes no time and launches themselves straight into your questions including thoughts on the story from FF13, favorite FF directors, and which FF era is your favorite. This week’s music section takes a nostalgic trip back to days of Final Fantasy 2 and the gang talks about what they like! As Darryl says in the show, this is a great episode!

The MiniGUP gang has come together again to bring you your dose of audio delight. Clo, Colin, Darryl and Lauren join each other for a gaming pow-wow. They start things off with a community response or two from last episode about the pirate accents. Afterwards, they go into an in depth discussion about Gamestop and the fiasco that the goofy company created with the recently released Deus Ex. After ranting over the corporation, they move onto talking about their piles of shame in rather alarming and shaming detail. In the same manner, the group talks about what they’re playing at the moment and how Lauren is jelly about anyone who’s playing Dead Island already. As the show comes to a close, the gang talks about all the games they want to platinum and how it will probably never happen (yay for commitment). Enjoy yourself!
