I hate Charlie brooker but I'd dig a serious game review show with a panel. A review and E-sports show would be good, maybe not E-Sports but at least a couple of teams that have high skilled team mates. They could elect one for each 'challenge'.
Watching this tonight, it's not completely devoid of merit, a bit cringeworthy in places but will watch next week. Rotating the stage between games and watching the 'celebs' act funny everytime is hilarious, not!
It's very watchable. Chuckie Egg was a bit hard to follow in split screen mode, but other than that it was quite enjoyable. The spinning stage thing is shite.
My main criticism is the "expert" saying most Star Wars games were gooseberry fool, when a massive amount of them had the hand of one of the most fondly remembered software houses behind them somewhere along the line. That's the only bit that rankled with me - I nearly said something to the person I was watching it with, but I was watching with my dad and he genuinely doesn't care...
Just watching some of this now, first time I've seen any of it. It's not horrendous, but not good either. Guests you've never heard of, unfunny comedians, Ellie Gibson trying to be funny in what seems like an uncessary role, and far too much inane chatter.
Baffling that nobody's taken a punt on a half-decent, serious(ish) games show.
