Personally I don't watch it because I already know what game I want, I don't need a review. Anyway, our cable company got rid of that channel a few months ago...
I just got that channel a few months ago. its ok, there are some good shows but the rest suck. I mean come on why do we want a tv show about cheats.

Alternatively, why do you want a show where all you do is watch someone else play a game instead of playing it yourself? I agree, there really wasn't anything worthwhile on that channel.
I think it sucks now that they merged TechTV and G4. G4 always sucked, and TechTV was WAY better. :nodding:
I used to watch TechTV alot, but now all they show are the gay G4 shows. :mad:
yeah,I mostly watch Xplay. cheat,pulse,sweat,filter,judgement day,meh those shows suck.Xplay is good though.I don't think that G4 and Tech tv should've merged into one.G4 sucks.I especially hate those 2 lamers on judgement day.
haha I know, G4's shows are the lamest ever. TechTV had alot of cool shows, that aren't played anymore. :uhm:
i watch tech tv because i have IO :) offtopic: woah BK that avatar is huge!
I dont really care much for G4, pretty much all their shows suck, are pointless, or are just plain stupid, I only watch X-play, now that show is funny (although their new LA set sucks, I prefer the old one). And talk about reruns, geez, its like they barely show anything else. TechTV had good shows, they should at least balance the G4 to TechTV show ratio.
Why? Why did something like this have to happen? The greatest television channel ever, TechTV, was bought out and merged with G4 "TV for gamers". At first I was pissed, and justifiably so, but I held out and reserved my opinions until later on. But G4 has indeed ruined TechTV.
First let me say how great the old TechTV was. Their flagship video game show X-Play is humourous, has pretty good reviews, and the hosts Adam and Morgan are excellent, considering this is a video game show. Other good shows included tech shows like Call For Help, Screensavers, and Tech Live. Also added to the mix was Anime Unleashed, which was decent, and introduced me to the GateKeepers 21 miniseries.
Now let's look at G4. They claim that it's a channel for serious gamers and whatnot, but they seem to not have any fucking idea or taste in games. A lot of their shows boil down to praising X-Box while calling GameCube a kiddy console (Which is far from the truth. Resident Evil and Eternal Darkness fans know it.). And their hosts...god their hosts are terrible. A lot of them have no good acting skills, and are just plain annoying. And a lot of the show ideas (Filter, CinemaTech, and others) get quite repetitive, very quickly.
Now let's look at the two joined. G4 scrapped a lot of TechTV's old shows, and I've heard rumors about Adam and Morgan being fired. I don't even have to bitch past that point, because you can all say how G4TechTV is going in a downward spiral when they (possibly) fire the most talented and witty people on their payroll.
