I cant remember exactly which my first live show was, may have been a LBP2 episode. The earliest one I remember for sure is Mortal Kombat, some amazing reactions made it unforgettable. but I am sure I had seen an earlier one. I discovered the show via TGWTG too, from an edited LBP2 show.
As for the chat. I dont talk much during live shows, I am more of a lurker >_>
I tend to go full screen, sit back, stuff my face with food and relax when watching VGA. But I do occasionally add my two pence if I think I can help. During the Rythum Heaven Feaver episode for instance, Becky mentioned it messing up her eyes and I think I was the only one to suggest trying some sunglasses to ease the brightness and just after that she grabbed a pair and put them on.
It may have just been a coincedence, but its that interactivity that feels pretty boss, especially when you do help. More so when you get the hosts to look even cooler ;)July 8, 2012 at 6:40 pm #41575
I found it originally during the Red Dead episodes and then I unfortunately lost it, and it went forgotten in my mind for about a year.
I searched for a long time for it, as I had forgotten the name of the show and I eventually gave up hope. And then, in the corner of AVGN’s channel, I saw it, without any hesitation I launched into a frenzy of catching up.
Fast Forward a month, and I finally got the courage to talk in a live show “Alice : Madness Returns”, I had recently completed it and I gave a suggestion, Becky read it and it helped them out, that’s when I knew I would never stop watching.
Again fast forward almost 8 months and I finally managed to afford TURBOship.
And now a couple months later here we are, I always have both the IRC chat and the Twitch chat open and I’m loving it.July 8, 2012 at 8:12 pm #41587
I have been a fan since they would still upload AVG episodes, and even though I was sceptical about they moving past the AVG phase I have to say I ended up loving it.
What was probably most awesome for me was to be able to interact with them while they were live, it gives you a feeling that you are part of the show and that is great. Also, after you start going to the chat regularly, you eventually start recognizing the names and the people that usually show up there and start getting to know some of them, and that is also really awesome.July 12, 2012 at 12:18 am #42260
That explains how I got into VGA. Worth showing again I’m sure.July 12, 2012 at 12:51 pm #42349
I have been watching since the avg days and pre-live show vga so it’s hard to remember, but one of the earliest vga I can recall is the red dead or harley davidson episode.July 12, 2012 at 3:03 pm #42389
I genrally have to have background sound going on inorder to be able to sleep and when i went to university i had no tv so started watching a shit ton of webshows instead (hence stumbling upon VGA (well the old playlists anyway)) and by the time skyward sword and skyrim were happening i was pretty hooked so decided to make the effort and stay up for the lives (im UK so pretty late here) and yeah its been awesome, chats great fun even if your just a lowley shadow like me lolJuly 12, 2012 at 6:34 pm #42426
I had been a fan AVG since the cheat codes episode with Lester. So when i was on youtube i think, My memory is kind of fuzzy, but I remember them playing Doom and was laughing at Deacon loosing and getting lost in the game, but he show that got me hooked was the Harley Davidson episode! I was cracking up laughing on the floor on how bad that game was and how silly the guys were being. Since then I have been in love.July 12, 2012 at 7:59 pm #42442
I first heard of VGA on Blistered Thumbs (I THINK around Modern Warfare 3 AWESOME). I was interested in the videos, but didn’t end up watching any XD. I went to their YouTube channel, and I believe the first episode I watched was either Babysitting Mama or the Bulletstorm demo.
I was a kinda fan for a while, then I stopped watching for a bit. But then when the whole YouTube thing went down, I came back with new vigor :). Then I game Frasher a well-deserved $50.July 13, 2012 at 1:23 am #42491
I first found Asome video games when they joined that guy with the glasses, I whatched one episode and well I was really underwelmed safe to say I didn`t like the show. Then sometime passed and they posted the new show Awsome Video games on that guy with the glasses and I was hooked from the first episode and have followed them from that guy to blistered to youtube to this website. My all time favourite episode is lets play ballerina its filled with som much juvenile humor and sillyness that I just cant help loveing it. Also after revisiting Avg I`ve found that its a better show then I first gave it credit for but I still like Vga way moreJuly 13, 2012 at 2:56 am #42505
I found them when they joined That Guy With The Glasses, too. First episode was Let’s Play Ballerina.
I was in love from the very beginning. Four college-aged (or so I thought) guys palling around, making stupid, crass jokes about a little girl’s game? Dream come true.
I still think they should replay that game with the WiiMove!July 13, 2012 at 7:20 am #42522
I can’t remember which vid it was, but I got to VGA from TGWTG aswell. I’m an active (at least in the chat I am) member since a week, or something. And I guess AC was my first Live show. And what a show it was… *shrugs head in shame*July 13, 2012 at 11:58 am #42549
It seems to be the popular answer; but I too first heard of VGA because of the Harley Davidson episode. Someone had linked it in an IRC and I went back and watched the rest, and subsequently got hooked. My first live show was the Earthbound FanFest (which was that the first live show they ever did?). My only real memory from chat, during the show, was that one time I got timed out for all-capsing.July 13, 2012 at 9:19 pm #42639
first live show was the Minekraft Kombat episode. The highlight of that night was when becky read my comment out loud. Hell it was made better when I saw it uploaded on blistered thumbs and it was editted around that one comment. So great.July 13, 2012 at 11:40 pm #42663
I found VGA through HVGN actually (If you don’t know, it’s Starship Amazing’s Derek’s channel.) They had a couple of videos of him and his partner, Calvin, watching AVG. And I think my first time watching VGA was of the gang watching HVGN’s April Fool’s video where the name Hank came from. From there, I think, I started watching the show more. :dJuly 14, 2012 at 12:18 pm #42731
I found VGA off of TGWTG. My first episode was Kirby’s Epic Yarn. My first liveshow was their second one- Their five year anniversary special. One of my best memories was doing the R.O.B. at the end of the anniversary special. Also, I remember when someone in the chat said, “Becky, marry me!” and Fraser read it out loud. Becky proceeded to say, “Oh, yes, Fraser! Yes!” He turned bright red and claimed he had been tricked. A couple times Becky and Fraser have said my name and have pronounced it as “Clock-it” which is wrong, but I’ll take it. I really do love this show.
