Bits was a great show hampered by an idiotic timeslot. Is the follow up you're thinking of Thumb Bandits, with RG's very own Iain Lee?

I would like to see someone take a stab at a show using Gamecenter CX's format, Dara O'Briain could be good

Did anyone see Go 8 Bit? It's essentially a slick looking game show hosted by Dara O'Brian where the two teams play videogame challenges. They showed the first one the other night on Dave. If you ever wanted to watch David James play Tekken, then this is the show for you. It was mildly entertaining but i'd rather have Videogame Nation back.

They ran a trailer yesterday saying it started 'next Monday'.

For GamesMaster and Bad Influence, I've been loving making my way through the Bad Influence episodes over the last few days on You Tube.

Bad Influence was great, As was Bits.

I distinctly remember when they showed off a bootleg mega drive (Scorpion-16) on Bad Influence which is hilarious to think about considering the implications.

Games master - if only for the live expo show in 1992 that accompanied the show. Never liked Violet Berlin or Nam Rood on influence but didn't mind the most of the show.

Quite liked the challenges in the show , a precursor to so called e-sports I suppose,though wouldn't care for any more than tiny bursts on a programme.

^ Haven't watched any of that yet, shame if his heart isn't in it. Craig Charles was great on that show.
