I used to watch this show as well! I have to admit, some episodes were awesome, while others were absolute crap. Some of the games they chose were questionable. It was sad that they never showed any Playstation games.

I loved it whenever they had the SuperSmashBros Melee tournaments though.

I still remember the catchy opening theme song which was a remix of the Crash Man theme from Megaman 2.
