G4

Post by AgentGreen » Fri Apr 20, 2007 11:34 pm

Wow, G4 keeps getting progressively more retarded. It went from acquiring a respectable games & gadgetry channel, to a mediocre video game channel, to a Spike TV/Adult Swim clone. Today it has somehow managed to surpass the general retardedness of Spike TV, until now a feat that I have thought impossible. Right now they got some stupid redub of Night of the Living Dead... Shoot me.

haha. i saw that, watched 5 seconds of it and turned the channel. i also thought it was very dumb. i also think it is funny as soon as we got g4 or whatever it was called, it started to turn to crap with its dumb cartoons and tv show re-runs.

I used to watch the Screen Savers, I loved that show.

Attack Of The Show has some funny skits and I like X-Play. Everything else sucks though (especially Cinematech: Nocturnal Emissions, fucking nerds).

Yea, I notice that most Tech shows (and some publications) usually degrade to trash like that. We used to have a show here in Aus, great to begin with, but it turned into junk, by the end it was just bad celebrity impersonations and filler junk with minimal actual content.

I stopped watching "Attack of the Show!" after they changed to this new format, but I still watch "X-Play" occasionally.

We should raid G4 and stage a hostile takeover until Comcast releases the TechTV assets!

There has only ever been one good gaming show in history and it was called bits.

I watched more shows on the channel when it was called Techtv, mostly I watched Screen Savers; Call for help; nerd nation; xtended play; etc. I still watch the channel now as g4, just not as much.

I watch Attack of the show; xplay; cops; and thats about it. They had the big lebowski on a few days ago, and i ALSO watched that.

I lost a lot of respect for G4 after seeing their 420 specials. There was more weed promotion there than a Snoop Dogg concert.

"Twist one up and we'll spark it up while we show you the origins of 420 and what it means to YOU!"

So much for all the Above The Influence adverts on every commercial break. And my brother watches that channel too, I'm sure people even younger than him watch it.

Sure, 420 is gayalicious but don't blame a craptastic channel if your little brother starts smoking weed. If you think any commercial, positive or negative, is going to steer him into a big choice then you have more to worry about. I will agree the channel sucks.

I hate G4 and I hate X-Play. I hate sitting through reviews of games that are obvious shit and they try to make a skit out of it emphasizing how bad it is when really the skits are much more painful than playing the game itself.

I don't understand their reviews sometimes either. I can remember they reviewed some game for the PSP, which I believe was a Guilty Gear port with a beat 'em up tacked on. They gave it four stars because they ported an awesome game but the beat 'em up is total crap. I also remember seeing a review for Scarface The World Is Yours where they talked about how much fun it was and the voice acting and such. Then they nail it with 3 stars and they didn't even say anything negative about it. I'm not saying it should have scored higher but if you're gonna dock two stars off you should at least say why.
