Want to have some quality time with the Sony PlayStation Vita before it’s even out? Want to hang out with your favorite Revision3 show hosts from Destructoid, Tekzilla, New Challenger, and AppJudgment? Well get ready, San Francisco!

On Friday, February 3rd, all your trusted Rev3 video game connoisseurs will be gathered at the Sony PS Vita Hill Social Club to get some serious, hands on gameplay and talk all things gaming with you.

From the PlayStation website, “Vita Hill is a series of eight Social Clubs designed for gamers, created by PlayStation® and opened in January 2012 for a limited amount of time. These clubs also happen to be the only place in the United States where you can just walk in and get handed a PlayStation®Vita to play.” Sounds pretty great, right?!

Along with that, The Destructoid Show will be streaming their Friday live show straight from the event at 4PM PST! For those of you who can’t make it with us, you can watch all the shenanigans with Max and Tara on Revision3.com/Watch or YouTube.com/Dtoid.

This event and meetup is open to anyone and everyone, so bring all your friends! We’ll be getting started around 3PM and can’t wait to see all your faces there. RSVP now to let us know you’re coming!

Where: 1694 Union Street (at Gough) – view map

New Challenger: A Brand New Show from Anthony Carboni

August 26th, 2011 at 08:00 by Rob Saurini in Announcements, Shows

To know Anthony Carboni is to like Anthony Carboni. To watch Anthony Carboni host a show is to love watching him host a show. What can I say, the guy’s a great host! It’s with great pleasure that today we announce Anthony’s brand-new show, New Challenger. This show is a great new take on the video game review genre.

As Anthony and I were kicking around a number of new ideas he had for a show, this one struck me as really fascinating. Allow a review….to be reviewed. The longer you work in media, the more you realize the power that reviewers and hosts have to influence thousands if not millions of their viewers and fans. There’s something to be said for, as a viewer, looking critically at reviews of any kind of art. It’s always in the eye of the beholder. In this case, every week, Anthony is letting his guest, review his review! It takes a lot for a reviewer to open themselves up for scrutiny and this is exactly what Anthony is doing. It’s going to make for some really fascinating conversation about the games, his reviews and the nature of reviews themselves.

This all sounds very heady, but I promise you it’s going to be a ton of fun. Carboni is one of the funniest guys I know and he’s going to bring all that humor to his conversations in the show. I know he has an amazing line-up of guests all set for the coming weeks. I’m really looking forward to seeing the ideas and conversations around games that come out of this show. I used to produce a show featuring game reviews (X-Play on G4) and I’m always fascinated to see the personality of the producer or reviewer come out in the reviews. Now, you’re going to see that viewpoint challenged (and sometimes agreed with) on a weekly basis. I think it’s going to make all of us view reviews a bit differently.
