    G4 (ended 2013)
    It's Game Time. Airing on G4, X-Play provides reviews and previews of the latest video games. Hosted by Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb, each episode rates new video games releases on a 5 point scale and previews soon to be released games with game trailers, clips and hands on demos with the game makers. Mixed with highbrow and lowbrow humor, it's "TV's gaming source, that feeds your daily gaming addiction." Originally airing on the ZDTV network in 1998 as GameSpot TV, the show was hosted by Adam Sessler and Lauren Fielder for the first year and Sessler and Kate Botello afterwards. A typical episode began with an update of information posted on the GameSpot website then went into game reviews where games were ranked according to GameSpot's 0.1-10.0 scale. Other segments included interview game designers and hints and cheats on games. In 2001, TechTv acquired ZDTV and changed the name of the show to Extended Play. Much of the original format remained, but the rating scale was simplified to the 5 point scale. Botello remained with the show for a year, and Sessler would host on his own until 2003 when the name changed to X-Play and he would gain another Co-Host with Morgan Webb, formally of The Screen Savers. With the inception of X-Play, the show became more comical and darker. Skits were added that included many of the crew of the show and became fan favorites. More mature games and subject matter were discussed and it wasn't unusual to see someone "die" in an episode (only to be revived in the next one). While the reviews and previews remained the show began to show some variety show elements which many fans enjoyed. Self depreciating humor and recurring characters helped make the show more than just a simple review show. During this time G4 merged with TechTV and later disbanded many of the networks former employees. X-Play survived the merge and would later become the only show that survived that period, including all of the original G4 shows. Eventually, the skits were removed, the humor was toned down, and X-Play became a streamlined show more like it's roots with game reviews, previews cheats and interviews with game designers and members of the gaming community. With additional correspondents (American Idol contestant and former G4 Cheat! host Kristin Adams and former Road Rules member Blair Herter) the occasional dirty reference and a wide library of games to choose from, X-Play has become one of the most watched shows on G4 and boasts to be the highest rated video game show on television. On October 26, 2012, it was announced by G4 that X-Play (along with Attack of the Show) was canceled and would endproduction at the end of the year.This was due to G4 being rebranded in February 2013to the Equire Network, a channeldevoted to the"metrosexual" demographic. The final episode aired as a one hour special on Wednesday January 23, 2013.moreless

    Starcade (ended 1984)
    For those who loved arcade video games, which of course were all the rage in the early 1980's, boy, wasStarcade the game for you. Man, this lost classic was the ultimate paradise for those who loved to while away the hours avoiding Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde; saving the damsel from the fearsome gorilla; or shooting down terrorist aliens as they tried to invade the Earth. Two teams of two players each – usually but not always a father and son – competed. The first two rounds began with the host asking a series of toss-up questions about (what else?) video games. The winner after two correct answers earned that team the right to play a video game. The team could select from a choice of five games featured on that week's show. One of them was the "Mystery Game," which if selected won a bonus prize. A player from each team chose one member to play the selected game. There's where the fun began. The players each had 50 seconds to play the game, scoring as many points as possible. Game play for that team automatically ended after time elapsed or the player lost a life (at which point the game screen flashed Game Over). The points that the player scored on that game were added to his team's score. The leading team after two rounds played the Name the Game Board. Here, the team was shown a screenshot from a video game, and given two possible answers. Getting at least three correct answers won a prize. The third round saw representatives of both teams playing the same game (selected by the trailing team), head-to-head, for 40 seconds, with his/her score added to their team's tally. The high-scoring team at this point advanced to the bonus round ... ... which, appropriately enough, saw the champions play a video game (choosing from one of the two remaining). Here, though, the idea was play the game for 30 seconds, attempting to match or beat the average score set by 20 others who had also played the game for half a minute. Guess what the player won if he bested the scoring average? That's right ... A VIDEO GAME!!! (plus a cache of other prizes, too). Aside from The Price is Right (which, to this day, occassionally has video games as prizes) or Wheel of Fortune (which was in the latter years of the shopping-era), Starcade was unique in offering video games as a prize. Mark Richards hosted epiodes 1-23, and Geoff Edwards took over the remainder of the program. The pilot was hoted by Mike Eurozione. (Note from editor: I am currently unsure of the exact airing dates of any of the episodes. Not even the folks at the official Starcade website could help me out with that. According to them the show ran for over three years but they may have been referring to reruns. I apologize for the lack of airing dates in this guide. I had to put something aproximate just to get the guide functional. Again, these are not the correct times or dates.)moreless
