Anyone else remember this? Better days and insanely comfy watching Code Monkeys, Xplay, and the like.
There's this old manuscript about a guy who used to work at TechTV for years and watched it go down the shithole that was G4.
It had something to do with eagle semen, anyway if you can find it it's worth the read hearing now the producers dragged this franchise down the drain and into the shitter.
but come on, am i the only one who legitimately loved and STILL love code monkeys? its dumb edgy teen humor but it was a good premise. XPlay had lots of good skits too, I particularly loved achievements in real life and the SAW scariest games parody. I guess you're right though the internet killed the need for "review shows"
I try to forget g4
I watched pic related all the time though, first place besides toonami I saw anime in the middle of the day
Xplay is essentially what roosterteeth 3-4 years ago was
Attack of the show was what kotaku was 3 years ago
all of their shows had an equivalent show up online that was easier to access, so they just went under
Old school TechTV was great, Xplay, Cheat, Unscrewed, and Screensavers, Hell even though most oldfags would disagree I think AOTS was godlike with kev and olivia.
I guess so but I think they were unique in their own ways
I swear, nowadays i would probably like attack of the show but i remember when attack of the show was new and i hated it. I always wanted more xplay instead...
Post best girl
I miss her.
I played with my pee pee a lot to this muslim
Jesus all this shit makes me feel old. . .
I liked how they marathoned Time Warp (I think that's what it was called) for the couple of months they had left before they shut it all down.
Also, attack of the show was pretty cool when I was younger.
4chan has honestly ruined video games for me at this point, I feel so bitter about the industry
>tfw I realize a lot more people fapped than enjoyed the content
oh well. I did think Kristen Holt (i dont know if i spelled that right) and Olivia Munn were hot, but I much liked the reviews more.
nah I find those in separate realms mostly. you dont watch porn cause its a great scene, its just hot. Nevertheless people can do what they wish, im not judging or saying "dont do that".
also >mfw half of the shit on cheat was just tips instead of cheat codes and she called it a "cheat"
dammit kristen why.
im not saying she wasn't hot or anything, or that you cant appreciate that. I meant that you can't be havin a fap and enjoying the work thats gone into it on a professional level, your brain just doesnt work like that.
>you still remember when it was ZDTV and it re-branded to TechTV
And I'm saying males are a bit more complex than that, just because their is a certain level of attraction going on in our minds doesn't mean we can't focus and obtain what knowledge is being presented to us.
To say anything otherwise sounds like stupid feminazi shit.
>Guys can't control their urges and go into >retarded caveman mode the second a hot >chick crosses their path.
Yeah that's fucking stupid and I feel your point is fucking lost on the majority of us.
You know in times gone by when a man got to old during the winter he would declare he was going hunting but leave with only the clothes on his back and the women would cry and his sons would silently accept their new responsibility
fair enough, i am a male too you know? we dont go into caveman mode. This is a difference between attraction and rubbing one out. You can look at something, appreciate its beauty and whatnot, but if you DECIDE to go into fapping mode you forget about the show's content. That's how it is with anything.
Basically: Enjoying the show can include learning, understanding about it, and of course looking at the attractive women maybe even growing an erection
Fapping Mode is: Wow Hot Chick, im gonna grab my donger and do with it what I will.
You see what im saying? If not, thats your own deal i'm not forcing you to believe anything.
They only started doing that re-run crap when their other shows began to tank or otherwise lose their audience. Then they went batshit insane. Mid 2000s G4 was different than late 2000s
Didn't she jump ship before the channel become completely irrelevant just to have her career fail to do anything. Like i remember her being a daily show news correspondent for like 2 weeks before disappearing off the face of the earth.
nah im really not, if anything im more degenerate than most people here in that area. It's more my opinion anyways, i feel the stuff id want to fap to and enjoyment of a good quality program are different things. If you can somehow fap to a show and take in the fun of the review or something like that then by all means, id be impressed.
I'm not sure if it was a dream or whatever but I swear I saw Obama on Ninja Warriors. He had tow security men behind him at the start, one took his jacket... and he failed on the first obstacle.
Mutha fucking Code Monkeys, fucking loved that show, still do.
If that show were to air today there'd be an up roar.
g4 really shows how times have changed so quickly. It's not even just getting older. The landscape of media and entertainment is a much different place than it was 10 years ago
Dumping Code Monkey caps
Mess with diamond, you gonna get cut!
I think we're all a little Todd here on /r9k/
I am it did last as long as it did. It was the last gasp of fresh air G4 had I think.
Did you ever read through that libertarian socialist thing that comes with the torrent?
Ahh Black Steve, he was the Steviest
Though Big T was by far my husbando
I never read it either though I've been meaning to for years now.
>tfw you remember watching xplay as a young teenager
Code Monkeys was like a messiah who lived, preached, and was crucified before their time on earth was needed, leaving only a forgotten cult instead of a proper religion
im sure it isnt really worth your time. dont you kinda love but hate the "the feed" popups during it? it reminds you how annoying those were... but its also kinda weird nostalgia seeing vidya news from 2007/2008 in them.
G4 had a lot of weird stuff like that. In general it was like a TV station trying to have the utility of the internet. To some extent that worked. I never played WoW but I could talk about it with great knoweledge to my friends in middle school who played it thanks to g4.
But they never stood a chance. They were the first casualties in paradigm shift as more and more media shifted from TV to internet.
You sunk my battleship
yeah i realize thats why it died so hard, it was completely thanks to the internet. Damn though do i wish code monkeys had survived, but that died even before everything else. XPlay could have been a nice change if it had moved online. But yeah Attack of the Show or The Feed is basically googling stuff nowadays.
I also wonder about what if it did air today
Tumblr would hate it for not being PO
Reddit would hate it for similar reasons and being too crude
I think 4chan would hate it too because of the dudebro mentality of most of the cast and the 420 blaze it
it was made for us honestly, the age range at which this came out was for mid-teens edgy dumb humor. I wonder how awesome it would be to have 8bit parodies of tumblr feminists and the SJW society we have now. So many mainstream things they could have mentioned today
I was never a south part fan but apparently they went that route for a few episodes.
Ah well, one less post for the emaculate Todd, ruler of Toddonia
That is a terrible feel. I loved watching Yuko Mizuno. I will never forget how she came so close to winning, missing that button by only a few seconds. I would kill a fool for her autograph. I watched that show religiously.
