G4TV To Actually Show Video Game Programming

G4TV has become a cesspool of crap over the past few years. What was a pretty cool channel in its infancy is now filled with Cheaters, Cops, and other dumb stuff that has nothing to do with video games. For a channel that was dedicated to the genre, having only 2-3 shows about games (that have been butchered as well), is shameful.

It looks like the people running the network have heard your cries.

Would be nice to get some of this programming back in regular rotation with new episodes. I liked G4TV back it its early days before everything got butchered

I think attack of the show is the only thing worth watching on that station now.

TheIneffableBob3868d ago

Attack of the Show is absolutely horrid.

The Screen Savers, on the other hand, was one of the best shows ever.

I always wondered what COps had to do with video games. LOL

And Ninja Warrior

Ninja Warrior can be spared for being entertaining.

iNcRiMiNaTi3868d ago

true. ninja warrior and unbeatable banzuke are fun to watch [especially women of ninja warrior] but they still arent videogame related.

this new game programming show is a welcome addition. hopefully this isnt the only new games show they'll add

Skerj3868d ago (Edited 3868d ago )

They're not really new shows, they're just the old ones that got canned during the merger put into a convenient block that makes me remember why I began to loathe G4 to begin with. They're calling it "G4 Rewind" .

it's good news,but different from what they were saying some months back.

This is a way for G4TV to slightly appease gamers by providing video game programming, but without spending any money. Re-running old episodes and not having to pay anyone to create new episodes gives them the answers they're looking for (what viewers want) with no cost.

Skerj3868d ago (Edited 3868d ago )

Man since that TechTV merge, G4 turned into a bloated version of SpikeTV (which sucks by itself) full of irrelevant bullshit. They axed Portal, Blister, Arena, and I rarely see Icons and Gamemaker's play anymore. Replacing them with what? Adult Video awards? Cops? Cheaters? G4's only saving grace for me right now is Ninja Warrior, Unbeatable Banzuke, and Code Monkeys.

I really just hope they put Portal back up in this block so I can record them all and make DVDs since they were never released.

Jesus, that is going to be so boring. Who the hell wants to watch someone writing code?

(Host) "And what are you doing now?"
(Geeky programmer) "Well, I'm just implementing the inverse kinematics part of our physics engine."
(Host) "Didn't fancy using Havok then?"
(Geeky programmer) "No, we decided that Havok's centre of gravity handling code wasn't right for our project etc."

Skerj3868d ago

Considering you know about which area IK would be implemented, you're more than meets the eye. BUSTED!!
