I don't know if any of you have seen this programme, I can't be bothered to read back through countless pages to find out if you've talked about it either, but it's called "Gamezville" (note the use of the z instead of an s to make it appear more "street") and is on at 4pm until 5 on weekdays. I have tried watching this program twice, and have failed both times due to the overwhelming urge to stab myself in the brain till I no longer have memories of it.
The presenters seem to have been chosen on the basis of how much crap they can talk without starting to get bored, I doubt their status as "hardcore gamers" which they seem to claim and they seem little better informed than the people presenting that hideous awards show earlier in the year. The programme is interspersed with the joys of cheat sections from the "guru" (I think, I've never managed to actually force myself into watching more than about 7 minutes in a row), a man in what appears to be a monk's habit who talks like a retard on a crystal meth overdose.
One of the small upsides of this travesty is that it does contain reasonable amounts of actual game footage and shows real people playing the games for you to watch. Now if only they could get rid of the annoying ****-****'s (a cookie to the person who correctly guesses the profanity) talking over the top of it, trying to show how much they know by repeating what each other have said and apparently reading the blurb off the back of the box, then perhaps they could make a passable attempt at a decent programme.
It seems to me that this is yet another games programme aimed at what TV corporate executives seem to believe the gaming mass market is, young children. The presenters are like the rejects from CBBC, the technical depth I've seen appears to be limited to that understandable by 8 year olds, and it's aired at a time when anyone over the age of about 16 probably won't be home.
It almost makes me nostalgic for Gamesmaster...
oh, and i didn't reach the guru, but he looks like a cheap imitation of obi-wan kenobi (old man version).
pack wasting your time with gamezville and watch that instead. or if you really want something to laugh with (not at) watch maximum exposure or something. i like the 'commentator' (or whatever), because he adds a 'point and laugh' twist to the clips he shows. and it's not all watching people fall over and stuff, but also laughing at inuit Television, i.e super shamon, which is a very bad imitation of superman with terrible dubbing for other languages, and a seriously ugly 40-odd year old with a bad haircut playing super shamon.
I agree that the presenting is crap, but it is well upto date.
Its better then the other shows (if there is any)...

Don't be racist, we call 'em darkies nowadays.
I watched (some of) it yesterday, and (some of) it today.
Yes, it was all crap.

Did nobody else want to join in, so they got a load of kids they saw hanging about on the street to come into the studio.
