Anyone else watched Voom TV's videogame Gameplay HD channel?

Click on the GamePlay channel.

So does anyone else get this?

I was at my brother's house this past weekend and he showed me the channel he is now getting through his cable provider and I was pretty excited. He said it's all videogame stuff all day long. When he turned it on the station was doing a complete playthrough of the new Splinter Cell game, playthrough as in it was like I was sitting on the couch watching someone else play the game on a console in the room, it was complete with stuff like option changing, weapon switching, menu's and such. He said that him and his girlfriend have sat there and watched a playthrough of Hitman 2 twice, like it was a movie, and watching it on his huge Samsung HDTV was like getting all the goodness of a high end PC with out actually needing to do anything. Kind of like a book on tape.

Other things on the station are Starcraft tournaments that show the different player's screens, first person shooter matches which are shown from the players perspective in game, and other video game related stuff.

It was all pretty nerdtastic. I wish I had such a channel but I can't even get HD in my place.

    Hmm... Looks interesting. But I have a feeling it is really just flooded with Halo2 videos of some kids playing around.

    I'll keep my eye on it though.

    I've always wanted the ability to watch others play games, like the HLTV stuff of old, and however they do it now in Source.

    I've actually watched it quite a few times. I watched a few episodes of CinemAddicts and one episode of something that talked about the making of Guild Wars: Nightfall just prior to its launch.

    As nerdy as it sounds, I actually really liked CinemAddicts. The concept is this: you follow the game through its ingame cinematics and snippets of people playing key story scenes. For games you know you're never going to play but just want to see what it looks like, it's actually pretty cool. I've watched through Black and Hitman: Blood Money. I know I'm not going to play either of those games, but being able to watch them (usually the Xbox versions) in 1080i, is actually pretty cool.

    Overall, I like the station. It's pretty high quality, although it's a little light on programming right now (since I refuse to watch Gamespotting or whatever the Gamespot show is called), so there are lots of repeats. If it's available, scan through the CinemAddicts episodes and see if there's something you want to watch. It's pretty neat.

    I want to be able to watch this when MGS4 comes out.

    It would keep me from buying a PS3 for like...forever?
