Most of it was pretty damn lame (other than seeing people I know) until the part at the end where they finally ask Gabe and Tycho why they hate G4, that made me laugh.

    I'm actually in it too, right up front playing Mario Tennis, but only for a second or two. Upon seeing it, I think I conceal my geeky side pretty well (as in I don't look horribly deformed...no offense to everyone else in the video ;)

    That wasn't half bad.

    That seems to be his schtick...making fun of what pays his bills.

    Not that I watch G4 or anything...who the hell does....but it seemed to be tounge in cheek.

    ...

    Wait.

    Now that I think about it...that was the best G4 had to offer to the expo?

    Some cable network morning-show tech wannabe whose sense of humor fits the idiocy of his obviously (and, obviously, not often enough) rehearsed questions and intern quality editing?

    What has he offered gaming? Oh.

    It's a platform for his shitacular impregnation into the upper echelon that is, my friends, his G4 career.

    ...

    Maybe his next 'assignment' will be covering the loacl EB on their HOT HOT story of the overpricing of the 360.

    ...

    The proposed legislation stems from an investigation into an Enumclaw, Wash., farm, where a 45-year-old man died on July 2 from internal bleeding due to a perforated colon resulting from having sex with a horse.

    I thought it was fun that he took the weekend lightly and took the time to tease the people who took it in stride.

    "Mean Streets of Bellevue" was enough to get my buddies & me chuckling during taping, I think you can see one of them making the "get a load of this douche" face during the lead-in.

    G4 interviewed him on Friday. He was wearing a G4 hat. I was sitting next to him during the interview. After the interview he mutters "I hate those guys." Someone asked him why he was wearing a G4 hat. He says "They're paying me to. Fuckers."

    That alone merits kicking g4 in the balls repeatedly. Who watches that G4 garbage anyhow? I have some on-demand stuff and tried it and after 5 minutes i said " i want my 5 minutes back!!"

    TRULY HORRIBLE GAMING TV. They don't have the pulse of the gamers unlike tycho and gabe. Screw'em i say. I hope they f-king choke on their horrible programming.

    If they come again next year, have a few people wearing shirts saying "G4 killed tech tv" stay constantly in shot.

    Do it on rotating shifts so nobody has to miss all their favourite events. Everyone at PAX has to wear the shirt for 10 minutes or something, and follow the G4 guys around. I also suggest the shirts say "G4 fucking killed TechTV", because profanity is funny.

    Sure, that equation can't be denied. But there are more than two reasons why Morgan's piece was really great. Such as:

    1. The guys were terrified (it was one of their first TV interviews) but the editing made them look fairly coherent. Although Gabe couldn't quite hide his "mustnotlookatboobsmustnotlookatboobs" face.

    2. Thanks to the piece, some people that wouldn't otherwise hear of Child's Play did. Sure, that show gets way less viewership than PA (and way, WAY less than PA + Slashdot + all the other sites that linked to Child's Play) but every bit counts.

    3. Game company execs give a lot of attention to G4 (most of them are old-school packaged goods execs from Proctor & Gamble and so on, and therefore still think TV is king) so tv coverage "legitimizes" the drive in their eyes. This will hopefully translate into more corporate participation for Child's Play 2005.

    Actually, number 3 applies to the PAX coverage as well. I really do think Kevin's piece was good, and I honestly think it'll help get even better exhibitor participation next year.

    I can't comment on the rest of the channel's programming; I don't watch TV*.

    That legitimates my feeling of not being too hostile to g4(more of a standoffish). This year all i did to mock them was cough *g4sucks* . I though it was absolutly hilarious. Just like my dikatana comment at the end of the last panel. Meh, me and my warped sense of humor.

    More to the point. We do need tv time for childs play. If its G4, so be it. Its better then nothing. And anything to make pax better as well.
