    Default Good Game Cancelled

    Anyone here watch Good game on ABC2?

    I am a long time watcher. I thought they were great, funny, and frequently on point, especially their online only show, pocket.
    Sadly the announcement of their cancellation came on Tuesday. I'm pretty down about it.

    #putoutyourcontrollers trended on twitter for 8 hours as a fan tribute. Which is nice.

    At least we have the memories to look back on. Praise Boll.

    Hmm. Can't get the time stamp to work. Go to 9 minutes, 38 seconds for Boll.

    I used to watch it when Junglist was on it, he knew his shit. They fired him when he insisted that he should finish a game before reviewing it.

    Supposedly hex and nichboy will be doing a show for channel 7.

    I was down when Jung left as well, but I came back to the show after a while. I hope the new show does well. GG Spawn point is also continuing on ABC ME.

    Yeah we have been discussing this in the venting thread. Will definitely be missed. I like Jung but I read a few reports that he was being a bit of a dictator on set.

    I think the show was a bit wobbly when they first got hex but it found its feet. It definitely had broader appeal not just because of hex being great eye candy, but the format became better prodiluced. It also helped to appeal to female gamers too. Turned into an excellent show when they moved the kids stuff to spawn point and kept GG as adult only. Great unbiased reviews, but I also loved the different segments they did each week on various topics gaming related. Well researched and interesting.

    And that photo.......DAMN!

    Ah, I didn't think to look over there.

    By the way. I find the post about "tits and ass Hex" disrespectful.

    What part ? the part that major marketing and advertising is often based on sexual appeal between the sexes , or that Hex has a great ass, or that she selfie'd herself in her underwear? ....

    Doesn't seem to be a pic that was meant for public eye though tbh, probably something an ex boyfriend posted or something, still a risk either way if you're going to take personal photos and send them to other people.

    Either way I personally don't find it offensive but if someone else does then there's no need to tell them to "grow a little", Punk probably meant demeaning her to just "tits and ass" is a bit disrespectful.

    That's more 80 year old lady if you ask me, your "tits and ass" post was more 12 year old boy at least I know that's what I would've thought at 12 but whatever.

    This is some kind of joke is it? My original post was pointing out that the other guy was upgraded for Hex because lets face it she has "tits and ass" its a ratings strategy employed by the media world as a whole. Loco if you want to be the police here for no reason go right ahead if it makes you feel better . Unreal man.

    Did she wear that outfit on the show at all by any chance? I wouldn't know I've never seen the show.

    As far as being the police here, I'm not the one who was offended but another member was, I don't really see the need to tell other members to grow a little. I'm pretty sure she offered more to the show then just tits and ass though and reducing her to just that probably wasn't a necessary comment, media strategy or not.

    You can moderate the shit out of this rubbish all you like fill your boots, there was no disrespect intended all round it was friendly banter jibing and if punk has taken offence then I apologise.
