G4 TV

I could be way late on this one, but I stumbled on this channel after watching the Celtics game last night. It's "TV for gamers" and it's pretty awesome. Lots of funny shows about movie stars and video games, half hour shows on game reviews, quick 10 second spots on a particular game between commercials and programming, and this morning I watched "Starcade" and pissed my pants laughing. I used to watch this show as a kid. Answer questions about a video game, then play it for prizes. The kid today won a Coleco Vision and had a chance to win a Robot, but couldn't get 3000 points in 50 seconds on Pacman, he looked like he was going to cry.

Good Stuff.

Huh, whenever I have managed to sit still for five minutes with this channel before moving on the coverage was for kids, consoles and nothing remotely targeted at real or even partly hardcore gamers. News and reviews where all stale with a heavy emphasis on EA sports games. I admit my exposure level is pretty low though.

This Sunday''s programming was pretty good, albeit still aimed towards the younger crowd. The coverage of the Game of the Year award that Metroid Prime received was pretty good as was some of the previews of upcoming games.

I''m diggin'' the old video game gameshows and such.

I don''t get G4 here, so all I can do is live through others. I did hear is was kinda cheezy though.

There is definitely a big cheese factor, but not as cheesy as having your bride or groom chosen by America, or setting up women so they think they are going to get a millionaire.

Or following a group of hot sorority girls around, watching them get drunk and then bitch about each other...ok, ok that one is better than G4
