X-Play focused on primarily video game reviews and previews. With a healthy dosage of humor and skits thrown in throughout. Hosts Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb became staples of not just the show but of the entire network.
Attack of the Show was of a variety show more akin to a late-night talk show than anything else G4TV had to offer. It cycled through a handful of hosts until it found it’s main team of Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira. The two would engage in a slew of antics throughout the course of an episode.
G4TV was a staple in many gaming households in the early parts of the millennium. Many of us who work in games journalism today saw the network as our first glimpse into the industry. There are plenty of fond memories viewers have of watching G4TV. As a result, everyone is eager to see what the relaunch will bring to the table after the landscape has changed so drastically.
This new iteration will be a hybrid of a television network while also pushing digital content. G4TV is set to officially have its revival in the Summer of 2021.
