The companies involved in Charlie Brooker's TV shows, Screenwipe and Newswipe, have confirmed to IncGamers that Gameswipe - a similar show, based around videogames - is in production.
Awesome! I can't wait!!! This is going to be so funny!
Humour is best served in one's own little sub culture theme :)
Here's an example from Screenwipe, it also features the blokes from videoGaiden, who you've also probably failed to have heard of. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Oh, that's pretty cool.
Oh that's awesome news!
Wahey. This is what we need. TV coverage, and *funny* TV coverage at that. Not that Videogaiden was bad, but it's not up to what I'd expect from something like this. Might give ZeroPunctuation a run for its money!
Let's see what comes from this...
This can only mean good things. Charlie brookers a serious gaming fanatic! He knows his stuff pretty well and he never sugar coats anything. Expect nothing but good honest reporting from this show :D
Thank god a person that knows news and can sift out BS, and also gave us great words like "sh1te hawk"
One of the sharpest gaming critics returns to the fold. If you're unfamiliar with his work, check out his shows on Youtube - http://www.youtube.com/user... His Guardian columns are worth a read too. They're a hell of a lot more telling and incisive than the dreck you get on GameTrailers and IGN.
Should be awesome. If anyone doesn't know what Charlie Brooker is, search up "screenwipe" and "newswipe" on youtube. Comedy legend.
I remember when Charlie Brooker worked for PCZone (now www.computerandvideogames.com) , and I used to buy the magazine every month partly due to his reviews and editorials. They were laugh out loud funny. His humor is sharper than a razor edge and his critique is well grounded. Truly a gaming fanatic. Its too bad he was let go because of his craziness (Lara croft animal cruelty zoo). But this is return to form for him and I for one can't wait!
Freaking awesome confirmed news! Can't wait!
i wouldnt trust anyone else to do this type of show, the man is for want of a better word, hillarious
