A new TV series in the UK called ‘Go 8-bit’ has mixed reactions from gamers across the lands…..
You can watch the series live at UKTVPLAY and make up your mind for yourselves….
We put the feeders out on FaceBook earlier today with all types of responses and mixed reactions….
“I Love It!” – LJ @ Retro Gaming Weston-super-Mare
” I like Dara. I really do – but this show is painful, unfunny and pandering. Dara would be great but the teams are lame AF and why do crap like blindfold shouty tetris??? – Also, bad name choice. It’s meant to sound like “go apeshit” that fails and just leaves a lot of people complaining that most of the games are not 8 bit. – Shame.” – Mark @ Retro Gaming Bristol”
“No. Don’t like it. Dara is a filthy casual when it comes to games. When interviewed for Charlie Brooker’s Gameswipe, he admitted to not being able to complete Gears of War and being impatient when playing Guitar Hero.” – SS @ The Arcade Collective
“Enjoyed the first ep. The next 2 not so much. They played galaxians this week at about half speed!!!” – JT @The Arcade Collective
“I knew it wouldn’t be amazing, and it’s all a bit too light-hearted, but it’s exactly what I was expecting, and better than nowt. I found the first episode more entertaining than I was expecting too. The people on there are at least funnier than who they could have had. I just wish they’d stop doing those shit “dances” when the stage spins around. Bring back Bad Influence, I’d say. There couldn’t be a more perfect time than right now for both modern and retro gaming. They just need to do a proper show with decent presenters. (or even just Andy and Violet, as they were hilariously wooden. lol)” – Ash @ The Arcade Collective
