Im glade they are getting rid of G4TV.
For some time now they have been getting rid of the gamming and puting on dumb shows that have nothing to do with gamming. I use to upgrade my cable just for that channel but I canceled it over a year ago and I also got rid of cable too to save money. I now have my comp with my tv plugged into it as my source of TV, News and Gamming.
Have to agree about G4. Too many other great places to get my info, like this site. This way I don't have to wait 20mins to get to the game I am most looking forward to. I can simply click on a link and find all the info I need. The internet is a far better format for getting your news then television. You can avoid all the annoying parts like 6min ads, and 12mins of discussion about something you could care less about.
Wish the hosts and crew the best going forward.
Could care less about G4TV as the only thing I watched on it was Cops re-runs. I cut cable back in July and haven't looked back since. I'd rather go to sites like MMORPG or Massively anyway.
Thumbs up for the Angry Birds in the background!
I liked the early days of G4TV when it had Arena with Wil Wheaton and Travis Oats and they used PC games for the show, games I actually bought because of them. Then it turned to a console heavy focus, and so did the whole G4Tv channel more or less.
Attack of the Show was good, but I'd only watch it every so often.
The old show Portal actually got me into MMO gaming after watching a few of "Dave's" Anarchy Online focused shows.
I do miss Cinematech, Pulse, Blister, Judgement Day though.
Hell my first gamer girl "crush" was Laura Foy and Tina Wood on G4tv.com (the show, not the channel). Sneaky bit of advertising that.
And then it started focusing more and more on console to the exclusion of PC coverage and thats when I more or less stopped watching.
As a matter of fact I think it was when I started coming here is about when I stopped turning on G4TV.
Cant say Im really sad about it "changing" as they didnt cover anything I was interested in anymore anyway. *shrug*
G4 to me equals Code Monkeys.. One of the best shows I have ever seen.. I remember G4 back in its early days and that show with gaming soundtracks and cutscenes (cinematech right?) was great!
I think they should have tried to find movies based on games, shows based on games, or something close.. Like you said, they want to be like Spike TV (another "manly" channel for men), but I don't think it's going to work..
Well I can remember when we had tech tv, and g4. Then the idiots at Viacom merged them into one channel. I used to go to places like cnet.com but nowadays even they are irrelevant.
G4 tv has sucked for a long time I will not miss it, in fact if direct tv dropped G4 it would not bother me in the least. Somebody said nija warrior, rofl yea even that show got boring after a couple of seasons.
Sad to see G4TV head that way, but I seen it coming after the merger from CNET and G4. Its not that great of an information network, it is however an fun channel that isnt about the metro-man-lifestyle that every other daterape Spike TV type channel. If you want "mens" channel watch Playboy or Cinimax. I want my Gaming channel to be about computers and anything related to the electronic lifestyle.
Its like every channel out there becoming dumber for the sake of becoming a "mens" channel. Syfy going on with these sorry reality shows, Speed Channel rarely showing anything to do with racing or cars and more about repos and old NASCAR races. The History Channel not showing anything about History and showing crap like Lizard Lick Towing, or Pawnstars, PAWNSTARS WTF DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH HISTORY!
