While both X-Play and AOTS may be going away forever in December, I doubt we’ve seen the last of the cast and crew. I do have to say that I’ll miss is seeing the X-Play posse storm into the tiny press room at PAX: Prime quite a bit. Like it or not, the loss of G4 (in its current incarnation) is a terrible blow to fans of video games and nerd culture everywhere. Perhaps one day we’ll see everyone back together under a new name, rising from the ashes like the proverbial phoenix. Best of luck guys, and thanks.
Since we last posted about our buddy Brea Grant’s upcoming feature film Best Friends Forever, their kickstarter campaign has picked up a lot steam with donations from all around the world. With only SIX days left, they need a bit more of our help to cover post-production costs (they shot on expensive 16mm). As you guys are probably well aware, if the goal of 75K isn’t met, all of the funding goes *poof*.
If this is sign of things to come in terms the level of quality of Hulu’s original programming, than we’re all in luck. The world of television changing for the better. It’s good to see that the days of wasted channels (the ocho) and junk-food television consumption are coming to an end. If more companies like Hulu and Netflix start to provide quality material like Battleground, we’re on the way to some real television Democracy… And that’s just awesome.
Just got a press release from G4. Tonight is the night we find out X-play’s opinion on the best and worst of E3 2011.
Without G4’s coverage of E3 a lot of us wouldn’t have had the opportunity to experience the event from the comfort of our own sofas. G4 did a stellar job of covering the event, but it’s not over quite yet. Attached is the press release including their nominations and the date of their big E3 award show. G4’s best of !
G4 went ahead and put the pilot episode of their new nerd/science show up for us all to enjoy a bit early.
Enjoy this very honest, very candid interview with the incredibly cool Jessica Chobot.
From what we’ve been hearing Chobot and Ryan Dunn (Jackass) will be working with Engineers to try and make some bad-ass video-game contraptions function in real life. I for one can’t wait to see a fully functioning Lancer or perhaps a Normandy 2.. Maybe they can even get a cadaver to carve up.. wishful thinking.
So enough of February, that’s so yesterday. What’s coming in March?
Forged in the fires of Mount Awesome (New Jersery), Alison Haislip leapt from the ashes to entertain geeks and nerds across the planet. From the sandy beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Tokyo, Alison has been everywhere and done things we mere mortals would not dare attempt
For those that are unaware, up until this week Abbie Heppe held the coveted title of Senior Gaming Content Producer at G4TV. Days after we completed this interview Abbie announced that she would be leaving G4 for one of the hottest new developers in the industry, Respawn Entertainment.
