What’s On Good Game TV Tonight?

What’s On Good Game TV Tonight?

bajo and hexWell, these two, for a start. Let’s find out why Bajo is telling Hex to talk to the hand on tonight’s episode.

This episode preview is brought to you by Good Game researcher and Sydney’s Most Eligible Bachelor (of Animal Husbandry), Jeremy Pencil.

With more Triple-A titles than you can shake a motion-sensing stick at, Bajo and Hex wave goodbye to sleep to bring you the very best the gaming world has to offer.

* We lament the loss of dedicated servers in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 before blowing up some chumps with our A130 gunship
* We bang a gong and get it on in Dragon Age: Origins with a review of suitably epic proportions
* We dust off the flux capacitor to pay a visit to Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time
* And we do the time warp again as New Super Mario Bros Wii brings us exactly the same experience as every other Mario Bros since the dawn of time – only better

Plus Rei talks to the world’s leading experts in DLC at the 2009 Digital Distribution Summit and asks “I CAN HAZ DIGITAL DOWNLOAD GAMES PLZ?”

  • I havent watched Good Game for a while. But after seeing that pic up there Im going to have to.
    She is smokin’ hot!

  • Does this show still get presented every week like it’s the 90s and we don’t know what the dang ‘video games’ are?

    And do they still pad out 30 minutes with 3 minutes of content?

  • Despite me already owning Dragon Age, for some screwed up reason, I watch reviews for it anyway. It’s like I can’t get enough of it, I have to see it everywhere I go. I should nevertheless watch it for the Ratchet and Clank review though, I know it’s gotten pretty widespread critical acclaim but it won’t hurt to get one more review in before I buy it.

    • @ Dunnowwhathuh

      Yeah! Me Too! I thought I was the only one with this weird affliction of continuing to read reviews for a game I already own. Like I HAVE to know if my experience matches the reviewers. To be honest, at least you can read the review from a more educated standpoint, and sometimes it helps bring attention to something cool (or shit) about the game

    • I know right?

      The ultimate sign of a really good game is when you not only love it, but it becomes important to you that EVERYONE ELSE LOVES IT TOO.

    • I actually do this frequently, it’s helped me find out what reviewers opinions reflect my own the closest. Then when I’m deciding whether to purchase a game or not, I’ll trust the reviews from those sources the most (for example, I’ve found that most of the Rock-Paper-Shotgun reviews tend to suit me best)

  • It’s not the Jungalist issue that killed this show for me.. it’s just the show in general… while i have enjoyed a couple of sements here and there, at the end of the day, it’s still tedious and stupid. I’d rather be gaming than listening to these tits talk about it…

    and she’s not smoking hot, but you wouldn’t kick her out of bed… everyone relax

  • i didnt think her first show was that bad..

    but ive totally lost interest in the show.. not really sure why, magic is gone

  • this show is so bad now iv’e gone back to print media. i cant wait till they review a wii party game. suprise suprise they both gave 7.5

  • omg bring back junglist… after bajo’s comments you can get rid of him and have hot chick + junglist, but only if junglist rips on hot chick occasionally

    • Bajo still talks like a stereotypical Italian, waving his hands around while he speaks.

      Hex still sounds like she doesn’t know what she’s talking about as she uses totally incorrect emphasis on certain words while reading off the teleprompter.

      Rei still has the monotone voice.

      All’s fair in love and war.

      • @Rent, Good Game doesn’t have a teleprompter, so Hex can’t read off one.

        @Stephan Kold-Labia, Jeremy is American, not English.

  • I only liked the show when Junglist was hosting, he showed a serious point of view of the game’s he reviewed and didn’t dick around. I can’t take Bajo and Hex seriously and only watched the first 5 minutes of the preimier of thier duo. If Junglist went out and done his own podcast or even a vidcast I’ll be into that, at least I’ll be getting a straight to the point view of the game’s.

    • Agreed. Now I know what happens at the end of the airport level because they were being funny. Practically the only bit I don’t know about MW2 yet is why Washington is being attacked.

      Doesn’t mean I want to know.

    • To be fair is probably difficult not to have any spoilers for a game that has single player campaign that lasts for around ten minutes. Including load times

  • [flame shields up]

    I love Junglist, but I’ve always liked Bajo as well and Hex is proving herself to be a good host.

    The show is going in a slightly wackier direction these days, but I like that – by the nature of the television medium, Good Game’s reviews often air after the game is already released, so I’ve already seen plenty of straight-faced reviews by that point. It’s nice that the show provides a bit of personality to keep things interesting.

  • I’m afraid this show has lost the magic for me. Waiting for the next best thing to come along…could be a long wait….

  • The purpose for watching reviews to games you have already played is not validate your opinion of the game but to position the critic as to how you will weigh their reviews of games you haven’t played.

    eg, you loved games W, X, and Y, but hated game Z.

    Critic pans games X and Y, but loves games W and Z.

    Now you know to be wary when critic reviews game types like W and Z because their idea of a good W/Z game is based on different criteria.

  • Its kinda off Topic,but i like Good Game and Shows like attack of the show and Xplay,Why doesn’t Australia Have a Gaming TV channel? Just for gaming 24 hours a day…would be sweet

  • what a waste of a show….will never watch again, nice work abc, screw up another program.

    And Kotaku, why are you even wasting pixels on my screen with promoting this show? i thought this was a gaming website?

  • I don’t watch the show anymore and it has nothing to do with the controversy, well actually it does I suppose.
    My decision is based on the fact that the magic chemistry has died. What I mean is that in TV land it is very rare for two presenters to work like magic together, a good example would be Graham Kennedy and Moonface.
    I am sure this young lady is doing her best but the magic between them is just not there and this now makes the show all so hohum to me.

  • Much like the X-Files the Mulder and Scully dynamic is lost now that Jung has gone.

    Admit it, you were all only watching anymore to see if Bajo and Jung would suddenly run towards each other and embrace like Hugh Grant and an American actress with two many teeth while Snow Patrol drones in the background.

    I’m tearing up just thinking about how beautiful it would have been.
