Umm yes I did. I watched it ages ago. I watched X-Play back when it was Extended Play. I also watched The Screen Savers constantly.

TechTV was great. G4 is just crap though. The only original show on G4 that is remotely good is X-Play, and thats just because of Adam.


X-Play really has gone through a lot of phases especially if you count Extended Play. Seems like they've cut down on their gag skits recently which is good because they were doing them way too much. I like the skits they do, but only when they're well done and in moderation. When they changed from G4TechTV to just G4 they really abused the show.

X-Play the musical WTF!!! You don't need to make a whole episode out of it!!! Worst of all was well that it was the worst writing that these worst writers had ever though of because it was the worst... Wasn't funny, too long and boring. And did I mention it had practically nothing to do with video games. The Halloween special was ok, they did incorporate a Horror video games countdown and the Spider man themed episode was decently funny. But when they make a whole episode of a skit or when they over use the same joke in a review it's unbearable.

Yeah didn't watch Screen Saver regularly but it was much better and was cut from G4 because it wasn't edgy enough. Replacing it with Attack of the Show with trashy segments like "In Your Pants" (which is exactly what it sounds like, not kidding one episode talked about....... umm toys)

G4 is just a Spike imitation and they even have the motto "Original Stuff"

Yet they have crap like Cops 2.0... I don't want to watch Cops!!! Oh and forgot to complain about the interactivity things they put in their shows. They put chat boxes in their shows like X-Play that prevent you from seeing the bottom quarter of the screen. Most shows which aren't made for those random chat boxes. If I wanted to see random chatter I'd visit a forum...

(Not a shot specifically at CR just all forums)

I used to like G4. I liked Attack of the Show and X play. Now it seems like it's turning into another Spike tv with Cops and all that crap.

AGREED, except about the whole Adam thing, he's annoying and gives male gamers as a whole, a bad image.

Unfortunately, I never had the original TechTV. I liked X-Play on G4, though... up until recently. They've really changed their format; I liked it better when it was about games, not the game industry (what with all the developers and special reports and whatnot). We get G4TechTV here though, and I'm glad we don't get Cops, Arrested Development, and whatever else you all are subjected to. Plus, The Lab with Leo Laporte is worth putting on once in a while.

I just found this out... you guys don't get much anime on G4 in the states, do you? Wow, I'm lucky here... they just started airing Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage here. Well, kudos to G4TechTV!

I guess it's too bad I have to miss out on the masterpiece Ninja Warrior and thought-provoking Cops. [/sarcasm]

G4 is probably one of the only channels i watch, mianly for AotS, X-play, Ninja-warrior (can't get enough!), and Cheat. Though i hear they gonna start airing foreign TV soon and I'm excited about that.

Besides Ninja warrior (Kudos to Makoto Nagano by the way) G4 has really gone downhill feeding the 360 biased fanboys that voted Fucking Gears of War for every single 2006 award. At that point i gave up on the channel. So its not that i hate the channel but i hate how it appeals to the retarded majority.
