With all of the likable personalities gone (Although I found Sessler to be highly overrated) there's nothing left. I wouldn't be surprised to see XPlay get sold to Spike (A channel
even Comcast gives you on basic cable although that too has been getting exponentally crappier every passing year) since Geoff Keighley already plays that Gametrailers.com
recap show at 1am. The rest would probably be completely scuttled into oblivion. It's too bad because it really could have flourished had they left the TECH, and GAMING shows alone. Mix
in news shows centering around the big gaming trade shows in Japan, USA, and Europe. Perhaps CES coverage for those psyched about phones, appliances, and other non game related
gadgets, and it would have been fine. Hell, if they simply HAD to mix it up, at least shows about Comics, or Anime, or Toy Collecting would have at least left an impression that "Hey, this
is a channel for Geek subculture." I suppose it was all monetary decision making, but I find it hard to believe it costs more to have a few Games Journalism personalities talking about this
stuff around the clock than it does to buy the syndication rights for COPS, CHEATERS, MXC, and KING OF QUEENS.
But what do I know?
