Oh, nothing

I was just wondering why I had never seen anyone talk about this fantastic thing and why there aren't any more shows of that kind, that is, three cute and smart girlfriends acting stupid and having fun. I mean there were reviews too, but those three could have talked about pancakes and it would have glued me to the screen



and this of course

youve never heard anything about it because it was terrible. i saw a few episodes and felt so patronised and disgusted. the central premise seemed to be based on the rationale that gamers are mostly undersexed male loners, so give them some almost attractive female presenters (personally i think theyre dogs) and youre gauranteed thier loyalty. as far as i can remember the reviews werent any good either

no british gaming tv show has ever topped gamesmaster, and i doubt any ever will. bow to the xylophone playing cyborg astronomer who gives out golden joysticks

maybe you saw one of the earlier episodes

later on this lady was introduced, and yes undoubtedly this time to provide some eye candy for the male audience

dominic diamond by any chance?
i loved it as a kid... and it actually affected me. once. i bought "sleepwalker" the comic relief computer game because it featured in a challenge on gamesmaster. and it was worth it

i also remember a show on CITV that was quite cool.
they once had a feature on the kid who made the original "worms" on his amiga. made me want to make games on my amiga
