What's On Good Game Tonight?

This week Good Game pays homage to... SPACE!

Featuring dozens of space games and more sci-fi references than you can fire a laser at, the good ship Good Game embarks on a thirty-minute mission to explore the best and the worst SPACE games ever made; from Space Invaders to Star Trek, from Star Wars to StarCraft, we boldly go where no video game TV show has gone before.

Catch Good Game Monday nights on ABC2 @ 8:30pm – and now also Good Game: Spawn Point (especially for younger gamers) on Saturday nights on ABC3 @ 7:25pm.

Or if you miss them, watch higher quality versions on ABC’s iView.


    G.G, for the love of gamers who love sci-fi, don't make any clichéd sentences.


    * "...out of this world."
    * "...spaced out."
    * "...stellar."
    * "...supernova." (Except Supanova Con references)
    * "...set [controllers] to [game]." (Or any cheesy variation.)
    * "Use the Force!"
    * "Make it so!"

    The list goes on. There is a balance between cheesy and awesome. You can blame news reporters for wearing a lot of these into the ground.

      You know what else... I'm really sick to the stomach of the Kinect "Hands Off" joke.

    zomg Hex works for Kotaku O_O????

    A gangsta theme would of made more sense with Kane and Lynch 2 and Mafia 2 just been released.

      Please don't ever call professionally organised criminals "gangsta", there is a difference between them and this: http://jokes.justsickshit.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/gangsta.jpg

        You mean to tell me that they don't know how to rap, or sell millions of dollars worth of CDs?! D:

    What's the Deal with the Metallic Purple Robot in the background?.... An Hex as a Vulcan I though they had no Emotion?

      What are you talking about, she's as emotionless as can be.

    I hope they at least mention the failure of Stargate: The Alliance and the vegetative state of Stargate: Worlds.

    Also, red shirts die first.

    So, I'm the only one who thinks Hex looks sexy as a Vulcan...

    Christ, you guys need to lay off the LARPing! It's not doing much for the image of mainstream gamers...

    Slow week I take it...

    Oh COME ON Good Game!

    All we asked was no stereotypes or cliches.

    You fucked up in the iView DESCRIPTION alone!
    (Not even into the show and it's buggered!)

    "Slap on your pointy ears"
    "Charge your photon torpedoes"
    "The geeks have truly inherited the Earth"

    Is it REALLY so hard to think up clever cliché-free jokes?

      I was honestly under the impression that this show was for children (not teens; I mean pre-teen children). The 'jokes' and overall presentation makes it really seem that way. The presenters behave like those CheeseTV guys used to; over-the-top and clearly not for anyone older than 10.

    I watched GG:SP on the weekend... wow. It's just horrible. You know when The Flintstones jumped the shark and added another character, The Great Gazoo (the alien green guy) - that's what that robot is.

    Also, I'll repeat others - it's not good viewing to watch a bunch of cliche'd space jokes.

    I watch Good Game SP with my kids, and we love it. The banter between Darren and the hosts is entertaining, being that the robot is quite annoyed with his station in life :)

    The segment where GG lined up a bunch of developers to be lasered to death for being noobs at E3 was very well done.

    Yep SP targets kids, but its good to be able to watch a video game show with my family.
