"Gametrailers TV" is a bad show on a road paved with good intentions. While it attempts to encapsulate relevant gaming news and analysis into a half-hour segment, it fails on both counts. The latest from the Spike network, "Gametrailers TV" is meant to offer a new way to "tap into the gaming culture." Unfortunately, the breakneck pacing and unfocused format are likely to leave viewers reeling.
While commentary comes from generally respectable sources, some appear uninformed about certain subjects. Shane Satterfield, editor-in-chief of Gametrailers.com, is particularly noteworthy.
Meanwhile, the show's featured previews are essentially ads.
