      They can't fire them, the activists would eat Adams liver for it.
      They will have to keep them on till all the lights turn off as firing them would be bad look.
      Even though they are responsible for tanking the channel.

        It is more of a case of them denying the "chuds" a win. If they fired her, it admits that the detractors were in the right. They would rather sink the whole channel in to the floor than just ice the BPD bitch and face the leftist twitter activists.
        They are cowards.

        Adam Sessler looks like someone you'd see at a gas station or Walmart self check out at 3:00 in the morning. He shouldn't be commenting on a woman's fuckability. His face and body are more effective anti-drug PSAs than anything I saw in school.

            The adult son of Comcast's CEO begged his father to let him bring G4 back and the request was granted. The son got bored of being a tv executive a few months ago and bailed. This whole thing is because a rich kid liked G4 growing up and had a pang of nostalgia.

          my Black, "G4" is a Comcast property. Comcast has lots of money. Per any corporate project, G4 would've been given a budget, a timeframe in months to achieve certain KPIs (probably subscriber count/view count per video etc), and now that they've completely failed the project's being unwound and everyone's getting laid off. That's how it works

          What's crazy to me is that somehow Distorted View is still going on and it's the same shit as its always been. I think the only reason no one's gone after it is because the host is a gay man, and it's far more niche now than it used to be, but it's definitely impressive to me its been going on for nearly 2 decades now and not much has changed considering so many of the other big comedy oriented podcast are dead in the water now.

              No. most women have had a male in their life and likely know what morning wood is either through experience or osmosis. what that is, is a narcissist who thinks everything revolves around her, including possible sleep boners/sleep cuddles.

            Because it's an easy scapegoat, everyone online is a "gamer", because gaming is as common as watching movies or listening to music in today's, especially if you narrow down to people who go online.

            But saying "everyone" would be conceding that the majority doesn't actually fall for their bullshit, so they have to narrow down to a "smaller group", so saying gamers fit the bill.

      WHO THE FUCK WATCHES THIS SHIT!

      I remember tech TV. Unlike you guys gayS, tech TV was based as fuck and then g4 bought them out and tried to bring the tech world more mainstream. It RUINED the soul tech tv had. It had shows literally with a nerdy ass dork who would take live questions about computers. G4 ruined tech TV and its resurrection from the dead to THIS abomination is awful to see. However, you know whats worse? Zoomer morons actually reminiscencing about fucking g4. I guess the people who watch it now are worse but you go idiots got it twisted. Xplay was the only decent show to move over to g4. Attack of the show was absolute GARBAGE compared to the screen savers. Just two old techy white men with some younger techy nerds discussing tech news. Then it turned into bro call of duty culture.

      Thanks for reading my blog fags.

            His explanation isn't bad and is probably the best rationalization for supporting NFTs but what Kevin misses is that it's all an exchange of funds, so pretending that Kevin getting more money means you get more money is retarded and ultimately he's just defending the idea that Kevin deserves money because Kevin deserves money, he isn't championing any sort of product with inherent value, it's selling no cost merch wherein Kevin gets cash and the viewer gets a jpeg that is at the moment of it's inception destined to plummet in value.

      From what I understand they have plenty of financial runway but aren't turning profit yet. They came in with shows and hosts/members whose roles weren't clear.

      Some of the bigger personalities are ok.
      -Kevin is prob out year end he came back to help kickstart everything)
      -Xavier had too much WWE shit/guests on because of his work with them. A wrestler-gamer is kind of an interesting personality though. A bunch of producers seem to have been the main cuts and I think Black Hokage which I never really cared about. They report Ovilee May was cut but she actually left over a month and a half ago.
      Kassem/Fiona/Vanessa are all fine. I probably enjoy KassemG the most out of everyone new.

      yikes

      They couldn't fire her unfortunately they are too stuck with her bc she'd probably sue them out of existence for some misoginistic lawsuit or claiming higher ups want her out. (They do)

      Am i the only one whos been getting podcast fatigued everyone and their mother is doing it these days and it's always so uninteresting especially if the hosts don't have much in common

      They don't need podcasts. Make it a video show and then put the audio to a podcast if people want to listen and can't watch.

      it's Comcast. i'd like to meet the person able to convince a group of people that somehow G4 create large amounts of revenue and is worth investing in.

      Why was G4 revived?

      They obviously wanted to jump in on "easy Twitch money"

      This hurt them at a critical time. Had she kept her mouth shut no one would have cared.

          I mean cut Sessler they prob pay him a shitton to sit in San Fran and not be near anyone and have to travel anywhere. You could have kept everyone else on lol.

          They really need to be clear about:

          -What each show is about (New viewers don't seem to get Vibe Check vs. AOTS vs. X-Play.
          -Which hosts are associated with which show (They kind of do now but sometimes it's a crapshoot who's going to be on and not consistent)
          -When they air (They finally got this shit down. At first I had no idea what was airing when-then it was like Vibe Check was on every night)

          I think they really need bigger personalities. Imagine Conan O'Brien or somesuch coming on to play a game a la Clueless Gamer-or the actual devs of a game. No one wants to watch X-Play Let's Plays of TLOU for 4 hours.

      You know. I work in television and this has always been the issue with talent, especially the undeserving cunts who feel entitled because someone OK-ed them in front of the camera. Fucking productions, even those lazy as fuck like whatever G4 was doing have countless people behind the scenes making it happen, from those in the control room, to the editorial, to the studio, and into transmission for it to get out to whoever the fuck. It's a lot of work and moving parts...And in mass layoffs those are the people affected in downscaling. I sure as fuck hope they were union because they're deserving of some real compensation for any contract violations this entire thing has showcased.

      ...and here we have this cunt who has always felt above it all proving how much of a piece of shit she is. But Kotaku won't highlight that one will they?

        so instead of bringing joy to people's lives through actual fun shows that don't take life too seriously we get Frosk types with a chip on their shoulder who make these shows insanely unenjoyable to watch.

        If the people at G4 thought that whatever entertainment they were making was demeaning or whatever, that's pretty silly because I remember G4 as one of the only highlights of linear television. They should have left well enough alone.

Even if you are sympathetic to what she's saying, you could still realize that you aren't the true bleeding heart liberal others are, and are clearly gesturing to in this moment.

      >As someone who went to highschool while g4 was in its prime, i can safely say that it was never that good - its all just nostalgia goggles. A few funny skits here and there does not justify this things existence
      pretty much, yeah, but those kids who watched G4 in its prime are now mid-to-late 30s and have soul crushing jobs and yearn for a taste of the young and carefree life they wasted.

        TechTV was always the better channel but original G4 consumed it to survive longer.

        Revision3 did internet streaming starting in 2005 and had alot of the same charm TechTV had but that is defunct now too but you can find stuff like the Diggnation podcast on the internet archive.

        whenever i went over my friends house to play games, we would watch g4 tv when it came on. It was hilarious, webb's boobs were hot, and sessler had some pretty funny skits. It was one of the few shows we went out of our way to enjoy, along with the other shows on that network.

        If you were there, you'd remember it was very enjoyable and a memorable part of growing up if you were into gaming. not everything is nostalgia kiddo.

          there also just wasn't really any other vidya related content on tv at that time. like we can argue whether g4 was funny or that they were just duddebros pretending to be into vidya but there was literally no other channel on tv during those years that was would have a vidya segment for any other reason than to call gamers incels and spree killers.

        G4 was a corporate product, basically a bunch of episode-length commercials for stuff, but it had some good moments and was smart to include lots of attainable "gamer grrl" wankbait. It was as good as you were going to get in the pre-YouTube days when having a show meant needing millions of dollars. But then it got replaced by YTers who would do the same job free, better, and more authentically, and G4 just stopped having a reason to exist.

        Now they decided to bring back the brand on YouTube, where literally a thousand better alternatives for the same thing are one click away, and somehow even less authentic than the cable incarnation, and then they replaced the gamer grrl wankbait with this scowling bucktoothed dyke who rants at the audience, including the Big One during which she inexplicably let it slip that all the hosts are just talking heads reading scripts off a teleprompter which other people write lmao

    It failed simply because there's no point in having G4 anymore. It went away before youtube effectively found every other meaningful way to replace it. Maybe if it had stuck around to be a legacy kind of thing, it would have faired much better.

The man's best takes were his appreciation of OSTs, but that makes sense since that's literally his business. I think I'd love to hear some of his takes on modern games OSTs sometimes.

      The sad thing is that everything else about G4 outside of Xplay is actually pretty great, but they made the mistake of bringing in modern Adam Sessler who hired a group of people focused on all the shit people are sick of hearing about and that's all anyone can think of when they hear about G4 now. Initially, Frosk and tbh seemed alright, but they eventually just decided to abuse the platform for their own bullshit under the protection of Sessler.
      Out of everything G4's done, AOTS is the only worthwhile venture that makes me satisfied with them making a comeback. They're one of the only groups I've seen in years still willing to make edgy jokes from time to time and even with their worst bits, I still enjoy that they're just having fun with it and enjoy each other's company.
      If/when the channel fails, I hope that they can stick around to some degree at least.

    I really liked the game reviews. For a while even the bad reviews were at least interesting like Adam admitting me never played a Kingdom Hearts so his take on KH3 was of someone who knows nothing about the game. It was a unique take. Then they got to reviewing Strangers of Paradise, by then they stopped using Adam what somehow made everything worst. They spent the last half of the review knocking down SoP because it wasn't Elden Ring. That was when I finally stopped watching because I hate when people complain about a game not playing like another game, that it does not even try to be, they are both just fantasy games.

    Anyone know where I can find old 2000s era G4 shows and episodes and media in general?
    I need it for a Kodi setup I want to do.

        There used to be a pretty comprehensive torrent. I wonder if it's still alive.

          There is? Where can I find it, that might just be the best thing. I looked through /t/ archives a long time ago and didn't find anything, but maybe I'll have more luck now.

          I may be wrong but I'm 99% positive that no series has a full collection available. You're going to find a lot of stuff missing.

          It's to be expected, I know I won't find everything, I am just hoping to find as much as possible.

            Just type in G4 in the usual places. It's very, very old. Something like 20 gigs.

                Tell me if it's alive if you do find it. I managed to get it once but decided I didn't want to keep it like a decade ago. In more recent times, I found that it was a mistake, as it wasn't getting seeded no matter how long I waited. I might check myself as well.

                So far I haven't found it in the usual places I go to, so I'll have to look elsewhere. I'll update if I find it and if anyone's seeding.

                No prob. I hope it does actually manage progress, slow or not. I don't know how many people are left that still have these things. we might end up losing a lot of it.

        I did try Archive.org and there was some stuff missing, funnily enough haven't tried Youtube, I guess i assumed it would be copyright struck. Thanks for the advice.

    I am convinced that G4 could have been saved if they adopted a Sabado Gigante approach and talked about games with a stage filled with woman in bikinis. My dad isn't even Latino and would watch that show every day not understanding a word said because of the woman.

        It was low budget, and kind of crappy, but literally the only 2 (then 1 after the merge) channels on cable that even acknowledged the existence of vidya. It was still considered a kids hobby back then, so now "old media" wanted it to be popular.

      It was on cable TV, on some higher number channel only available in certain packages. Most viewers are on twitch though.

    They're not shutting down. They laid off 15-20 people. People had a field day with the Frosk posts yesterday though lol. She literally told people DON'T LIKE IT DON'T WATCH and Sessler can't shut his mouth up on Twitter for longer than 10 minutes so it's no surprise.

    Really at the end of the day they're making strategic cuts and redirects because they didn't have a great gameplan to begin with. That many producers aren't necessary when Twitch/YouTube shows with 1 producer and 3 staff pull in numbers much larger.

      We know they're not shutting down. This is just obvious proof that they're in trouble. This was the first signs that G4 was in danger the last time

    The dude who voiced DJ Drunkle Ted seems like a big loss. He was consistently the funniest writer and voice actor they had there. I probably enjoyed the commercial "banter" he did more than anything else.

    Repeat. They hate the original audience. Well puppet older people and properties and when the project fails they cut those people first and keep doing what they wanted to with gay morons thanks to investors who have so much money they cannot fail as individuals the gay moron project fails they will fund another. Is there anything worse than someone with a cuck fetish who is into banking? It is amazing how hard they push this shit and it always fucking fails unless it was and original IP like Steven universe (I use original lightly here since everything in that show is plagiarized)
